Re: CMLL, the home of Cavernario

Marco/Rush was good, but it was only half a match, it seems they're building towards Hair vs. Hair for the next big event (June/July?). Intensity was great. A proper apuesta clash between the two could be a terrific MOTYC brawl. I hope Park returning to Elite means he's returning to CMLL as well. He...

Re: WWE NXT 2016

Do people seriously prefer Ricochet in NXT over Lucha Underground? Nice to see the spirit of alternatives live. He's gained nothing by way of recognition in LU. If he takes the mask off and becomes more recognizable, then it may be a better fit. But, right now, NXT doesn't have a super high flyer. ...

Re: CMLL, the home of Cavernario

Looking forward to Rush vs. Marco on Friday. Semi-main looks kind of sick, Gran Guerrero works great with small flyers.

Re: WWE NXT 2016

Do people seriously prefer Ricochet in NXT over Lucha Underground? Nice to see the spirit of alternatives live. I prefer a guy to get a chance to make it on the biggest stage, become a huge star and make tons of money before he kills his body on the independent scene and is broken down by 30. No on...

Re: The Lucha Underground Thread

Pentagon in Season 1 was dealing with prelim dudes, females and retired Canadian luchador-turned-announcer. Nothing too impressive to put in your CV, that's why the real main eventers would look bad if Pentagon suddenly ran through them.

Re: The Lucha Underground Thread

He's not running through everyone, though. There's still Mil Muertes. He did pin 9 guys during Aztec Warfare, but half of those were undercard guys and a trainee (Mack, Aerostar, Ryan, Chavo, DAJ). And just because he smashed Fenix, Puma, Texano and Rey-Rey during a battle royal, doesn't mean he'll ...

Re: The Lucha Underground Thread

- Great opener with Dario and Pentagon. - Another DUD from Lucha Underground females. Terrible match, terrible angle, terrible feud. The Moths introduction vignette was WOAT. Oh look, another debuting fighter beating up a bunch of masked thugs, never seen that before! Marty was decent in S1, but he'...

Re: Evolve (WWNLive)

Seems like the ippv tech is a trainwreck for Gabe this weekend, and if I remember right it tends to be every mania weekend. You'd think they'd bunker up their tech for the one weekend of the year when they get the most traffic. Makes you wonder how much traffic they get usually? Meltzer talked to G...

Rush/Atlantis
Rush/Mistico
Rush/Dorada
Atlantis/Mistico
Caristico/Mistico

CMLL is crazy to give all these matches to ELITE. I hope the lease money is good for CMLL, otherwise this makes no sense.

Re: RIP Kris Travis (1983-2016)

Rest in peace. Unfortunately, I haven't seen much of him, most of it was during 2011-13, but he was clearly a solid wrestler. Terrible when they die so young.

Terrible news, but at least he had it removed. Unless some of it stayed inside, then the nightmare continues.

Re: CMLL, the home of Cavernario

I think Ultimo Guerrero vs. Cibernetico from Friday was great match until dirty closing stretch shenanigans happened. It showed Cibernetico can go in big-match situations via all the brawling shortcuts, and eventual apuesta match with UG, Rush or Caristico could deliver if they drop silly booking.

Re: The Lucha Underground Thread

If this was WWE. I swear, if there is one thing 15 +years of internet showed me, it's that everyone talks about WWE even when a topic has nothing to do with it whatsoever. People are being possessed by WWE without even knowing it. Applying WWE logic to everything. I remember a forum when it happened...
