I've been watching Lucha Libre for the last few weeks and just discovered Lucha de Vuelta today. I was wondering if anyone could fill me in on the basics of Mexican wrestling and maybe point me to some websites.
In particular, what exactly are Rudos and Technicos? Also, what are the different leagues in Mexico and which wrestlers should I pay particular attention to? Is there anything else I should know?
I'm kinda doing an informal Q&A over in the recap folder - Click Here - (because that folder is sad and lonely and I could use the premise of me doing CMLL TV recaps), and I think some of your questions might get answered over there.
Also, for something else CMLL (a 3/17/00 PPV review) related I was working on, I started to do a lot explanation before each match about what was going to happen and how things worked. I later figured that only those who already knew would bother, so I cut all of that out, but did save it in another file in case it got handy one day. It's just basic stuff and not really read through for errors, but it may help.
