What a witty subject title.

  • Old SmackDown had the #1 Contenders Tournament, Part 1; also a good Tajiri/Funaki vs Team Angle match
  • Funaki does not do as well against Matt Hardy on Velocity
  • Ivory's first match on Heat in a year.
  • Tony's 04/07/03 RAW Recap and discussion of Carrot Top's massages.
  • I played Death Jam Vendatta instead of recapping this episode of SmackDown! (yet)
  • I don't have a reason for not doing Velocity.
  • I guess Jamal could break his neck and no one would care, if it happened on Heat.
  • Tony's second to last RAW Recap debates the merits of Monday Night Hockey
  • This epsiode of CMLL won't air for about a month...
  • and this one won't air till the week after that, but the one you really want to see...
  • ...is the next one that I still have to do (three title matches and a hair/hair match)

    Tony only took up the gig to do it before he got out of school, so next week is it. If you've enjoyed his stuff, make sure to e-mail and let him know.

    I think Albert and Tanvir had an idea for something that might get done next week, but I should ask them about it.

    Is it just me or does your site's main link not work? (I mean, it didn't work today or yesterday when I tried it.) Oh, wait, NOW it works. Hmmm, maybe it's me.

    It was done parts of yesterday and late last night, yes. Don't know why - hosting company's website was down at the same time, which isn't a good sign.

    Some thoughts on the lucha tapes you watched.

    2/2

    I tried to think of why Panther was rounding out that trio - with no success as well. If they were so hard up for somebody to round out that trio, it would have been a great time for Wagner to break out his kick-ass camouflage ring attire.

    Anything that has Apolo Dantes doing a tope has to be worth something.

    Gran Markus seems a bit thinner than he was during the mid 90's. He was truly built like a VW bug then. Bigger than Super Porky.

    I loved the ads during these shows, especially the ones for the real-life bumblebee man show. Better than some of them that I saw while watching some 1997-ish Promo Azteca - a guy in minstrel show blackface promoting a furniture store.

    Is it just me, or is Loco Max somewhat stiff of a worker by the loose lucha standards?

    It was nice to see Safari in a match that wasn't clipped down to only show the final fall.

    619 from Black Tiger! With his stocky physique, I was almost fooled.

    Mascara Ano 2000 and V3 didn't stink things up too badly in that one.

    I'll agree - that was one of the more lethal looking Wagner drivers. Actually, a lot of the exchanges involving Wagner & Niebla in this match were really well done. They had a nice singles match in September 1997 that is worth seeking out.

    The GDI triple team submission that showed up during Momentos is very high on my long list of screwy looking lucha submissions.

    Tarzan's superbomb on Vampiro looked really ugly. I'm surprised Vamp didn't screw up his arm with that.

    AAA - The move to "solo una caida" has meant that they are better able to show off limited movesets and spots in between clusterfuckness. Still, it wasn't any easier to try and follow Russo booking.

    2/9

    No, TCF, I don't think Beckie ever won a match with the Farmer's Roll. I wonder if I could use this as an excuse to break out all my WOW tapes?

    I hope Rivera gets a nice push coming out of all this Guapos angle. I've always liked his stuff, and he's been stuck in the EMLL low card for quite the while. He's on some of my 1997-era tapes.

    I think I preferred the first Panther/Boricuas vs. Markus/Dantes/Satanico match. Violencia got the chance to show more off in the second one, though.

    It bears repeating - the Sean O'Haire/Damien el Terrible resemblence is uncanny.

    Emilio teaming with Shocker's then proteges didn't really make a whole lot of sense. Rudo-ness overcomes losing a hair match, I guess.

    Matches are always fun if Negro puts an effort into it, and he did so in this match.

    Is Sunday Santo Movie Day in Mexico?

    Violencia's mini has to come close to violating the Super Astro rule. Maybe it is the wig and the horns.

    Small nit to pick. The guy's name from the Momentos with the interesting plancha was Valentin Mayo.

    Genetico's submission ruled. Kind of a half sharpshooter/half across-the-knees backbreaker.

    I thought that kid was wearing an Ultraman Jr/Starman mask, not a Santo mask.

    Better psychology in the 12/29 Shocker vs. Ultimo match, but the one here was also really enjoyable.

    And yes, looking ahead, the 2/16 show was a boatload of fun. One of the better EMLL shows, on par with the 2001 Halloween craziness.

    I can't get on your site, Cubs.

    I guess your hosts' site is having the same problem.

    Tom, part 1: See that part where I said "Tanvir and Albert may be doing something"? Well there you go. Nice timing on that question. I'll get more specfic when they actually start on it, just to be on the safe side.

    Tom, part 2: Hosting company e-mailed ME (and everyone else) to explain the server went unrepsonsive and they had no idea why - but they turned off ColdFusion and everything's peachy now. So good for me - it should be fine now.

    And now lots of Homer:

    2/2

    >I tried to think of why Panther was rounding out that trio - with no success as well. If they were so hard up for somebody
    >to round out that trio, it would have been a great time for Wagner to break out his kick-ass camouflage ring attire.

    Maybe Panther being here was just to fit someone in this fued; it has to be a rudo, but you have to find someone who would make sense to be feuding against the normally-rudo Capos. Maybe they just owed Panther a couple Colieso paydays?

    What's weird is how the Boricuas have suddenly tightened up the roster - Bulldog's apparently gone (yay), Killer's apparently gone (yay) - they don't have as many people to cart to the ring each time.

    >Is it just me, or is Loco Max somewhat stiff of a worker by the loose lucha standards?

    I haven't noticed that before but I'll look next time.

    >Mascara Ano 2000 and V3 didn't stink things up too badly in that one.

    While MY2K has been eh every time I see him and I expect that by now, I keep thinking waiting Villano III to be better than par in a match, and he never really shows it off. The first time I saw him in any length was the mask match against Atlantis, so maybe my expectations in him are just extra high.

    >Niebla in this match were really well done. They had a nice singles match in September 1997 that is worth seeking out.

    Hmm, there's another one. You know what would be neat is if someone put together a list of some of that good lucha stuff. It's so odd - you can get bios and bits of history from places like La Arena, but compared to all the puro info/discussion on there, there's nothing to figure out what were the good fueds/matches from the past (besides the obvious WWC match). I've heard good things about Niebla/Shocker and much about Casas/Santo but no one speaks in mythical terms about them like certian AJPW matches - makes them much harder to track down.

    Did you watch the Wagner/Niebla one that aired this week? I'm putting that show off till I get the next episode on tape done...

    >The GDI triple team submission that showed up during Momentos is very high on my long list of screwy looking lucha
    >submissions.

    You know, the scary thing aren't that they're wacky, it's that they look like they actually work.

    Do you really need a reason to watch WOW? Someday, I'm gonna look back and see how well tha ages.

    >I hope Rivera gets a nice push coming out of all this Guapos angle.
    >I've always liked his stuff, and he's been stuck in the EMLL low card
    >for quite the while. He's on some of my 1997-era tapes.

    If the point of the Nuevo Guapos was to push the a rudo trio and support Magica and Shocker, I think Tony would have been the best pick. It's unlikely he'd over shadow the other two, he can take the bumps to sell for those two, and he's more convicing as a rudo than Ricky. I guess it turned out it was to try and create a new star and Tony's back to third from the top Coliseo matches, sadly.

    >It bears repeating - the Sean O'Haire/Damien el Terrible resemblence is uncanny.

    Thank god Shocker is not anything like Piper.

    >Small nit to pick. The guy's name from the Momentos with the interesting plancha was Valentin Mayo.

    o!

    >And yes, looking ahead, the 2/16 show was a boatload of fun. One of the better EMLL shows, on par with the 2001 Halloween

    I've gotten about 2/5s of the way thru it already and it seems that way.

    I did put together a list of must-see lucha, and posted it to the main wrestling board a while back, along with where to get them, excepting one of them.

    http://wienerboard.com/thread.php/id=9568

    But I am considering doing more detailed recaps of the random lucha within my collection. It's not a huge collection - but it is probably enough to get me to JTTS status.

    I haven't seen the most recent Wagner/Niebla yet, but it will likely be on tbe next order from wrestleholics.
