tbf to the rest of the top guys in the world that's mostly tag matches and everyone in them phoned it in

on the other hand when Atlantis does show up he shows up in a big way and has the best lucha match of the year every year

he's the roman reigns of mexico

Atlantis is probably more over than Roman is

that loving apron powerbomb after the second fall just made me yell out loud to myself in my apartment

e: are CMLL's pin counts usually super weirdly-paced or is this a heel ref or something

The refs in Mexico loving suck. They are either old as poo poo or trying to get themselves over or are just bad referees.

So did Octagon pitch a fit when Samuray del Sol was using the gimmick a few years ago? I wasn't paying attention to lucha back then.

Octagon was in AAA at that time and okay'd the gimmick then del Sol joined WWE like the next day.

1) so this from the Elite promotion I keep hearing about? When your first promotion is not growing, start a second promotion?
2) I liked the over head camera for the gorilla press and stalling suplex
3) people love Ultimo Guerrero

Elite is an unknown 3rd promotion that is booking anyone and had a better TV deal than CMLL and AAA originally.

welcome back Konnan, I guess?

I think the wife of the original owner is the one actually in control.

GCW, the people involved with Joey Janela's Spring Break, are gonna work with DTU for a couple months. I hope Joey gets to book Los Tortugas for the New Orleans show.

CMLL's big lucha vs the world elimination tag match is tonight and its an ippv for 10$ and on ROH's subscription site.

Mexico Team: Volador Jr, Caristico, Ultimo Guerrero, El Terrible, El Cuatero, Sanson, Hechicero, Diamante Azul, Euforia,
