I'd like to see some of these more "traditional" indies. Do you mean more of the dramatic matwork, or more just "an immobile fat guy gets cheered to put someone in an armbar"

From what I've seen on Lucha Tube in wooo, the latter

Speaking of, I know a lot of people here watch wooo from time to time but if you don't:

See this?

Every Wednesday, they have a 4 hour block of that week's CMLL and AAA, plus a bunch of those aforementioned Lucha indie

So if you want like a "weekly watch", 4-8 ET on Wednesday at taima.tv/r/wooo plus it goes right into the live airing of Lucha Underground!

loving nice

Come to think of it I wonder if anyone other than Norman Smiley worked for both lucha libre and shoot style promotions.

Kane and Big Van Vader

Like on a newly found tape from 1992. Or live in ring right now this year.

You'll hear no argument from me either way, friend.

For a more serious answer, I've been digging around my (limited) resources and mostly there's a lot of lucharesu crossover, which would make Shoichi Funaki the obvious answer. Hamada did some work in Battlarts but it was a handful of guest appearances, largely.

That minis match was super fun. Shockercito and Demus have great chemistry.

Yeah they were amazing together. Not as amazing as the crowd cam, but, hey. And Ultimo Dragoncito is rad, hot drat.

Thunder replaced in this match! I don't want to jinx it but this show may be blessed.

yeah I'm starting to get nervous.

And also I take it that Thunder never managed to move like he belonged anywhere near a lucha ring.

LAME but at least it was an entertaining gently caress finish

even if most of my entertainment was "why are they taking off his pants"

I can understand not wanting to give that match away, but they could've given us a little more than that. Reminds me of RAW in the 90s when they'd claim they were going to give you PPV main event for free and it would go 30 seconds before a run in DQ. At least it was still a really good show overall.

yeah I mean this was really drat good overall and even the lovely gently caress finish on the main was well done as far as "lovely gently caress finishes" go. I love that the entire first fall goes by without the entrance gear having a chance to come off.

They had a match either this year or last that I couldn't really get into, but I'm not a huge fan of the super exhibition-y maestros stuff that some people really dig

hopefully it owns, at least, because both of them have had matches this year I found incredible
