Can you guys recommend any good books about lucha history?

Also I wish someone would write about the Guerrero family (going back to Gory).

Curious. Was LA Park a big star before his run in WCW, or did he really take off later?

vvvvv I'm sorry, I should have been more specific. I know he was a known quantity and all, but was he a big name guy before hand? Did his big star run start after his WCW run or was it another case of WCW wasting a known draw? vvvvv

No 2019 MOTY/HMOTY/WMOTY thread up yet so I'll just say here for the time being that the CMLL trios match tonight with Fenix, Pentagon and Dragon Lee against Cuatrero, Forastero and Templario was pretty good

Here's a match that I liked, probably not good enough for an honorable mention but good enough to post:

Angelikal, Hijo Del Vikingo, Niņo Hamburguesa vs La Chiva, Tiger Boy, Villano III Jr. (1/6, AAA/Sanchez) - Good
Especially good third fall. Niņo does a brutal powerbomb. Vikingo is amazing, Angelikal and Villano are good too. Solid house show match.

CMLL just did Reyes del Aire on the Sunday show, keep your eyes open in a few weeks for that one to pop up online, it is always great.

Also the Sin Piedad show had a nearly full house so remember that come Hall of Fame season to tell anti Caristico people they are dumb as heck.

Is Pluto something you can run through your Roku or whatever? When you linked that thing earlier I saw that it seems to be the same content they have been running on their Twitch for over a year at this point, which is to say "2003-2005 and 2011-2012." Wish they would load the early years 90s stuff but I wonder how accessible those tapes are, even for them.

AAA really needs to figure out how to book technicos getting blindsided better.

I watched Friday and Konnan was doing the whole cowering in the corner thing while Psycho Clown just kinda stares at him. Clown then gets wiped out by all the dudes he completely forgot about.

The worst was Lady Shani getting the poo poo kicked out of her, then getting up, cutting a fairly calm promo right in the face of the people who were kicking her poo poo in only to get beat up again. derp.

Not sure what you're getting at here. Rey Escorpion owns tremendously, he's one of the best guys in AAA. Psycho Clown vs Rey Escorpion dog collar match last year ruled.

Different one. Escorpion Egipcio is a US-born wrestler who was in CHIKARA and is now in AAA as Rey Escorpion alongside the dog collar Rey Escorpion, who used to be Escorpion Negro and is Mexican-born.

They both wrestle under the same name now, because why bother, if CMLL can have have multilple Misticos, Caristicos and Myzzetzzizzezz or whatever, surely AAA can also have a confusing roster with limited names.
