As an annual tradition, I’ve got some stats from the win/loss lucha libre stats from the lucha libre database. You can find this year’s and last years under the records tag. You can find the prior year records by – I dunno, very careful googling? Maybe I’ll fix that a bit later.
2008: Ultimo Guerrero (228)
211 La Parka Jr. (top AAA) 194 Místico (top CMLL) 182 Héctor Garza 172 Volador Jr. 170 El Elegido 170 Electroshock 169 Último Guerrero 166 Shocker 165 La Sombra 165 Negro Casas
Top in IWRG: Black Terry (98)
Top in Puebla: Ares (33)
Top in GDL: tie, Boomerang & Acertijo (41)
AAA posting spot show lineups has changed this list greatly from past years. At the same time, it makes them more iffy, because we really hear about results for these shows. There are no results for 56% of Parka’s matches, and he’s on the low side for AAA wrestlers. Mini Chessman, who’ll pop up here later, has 1 win, 12 losses, and 64 unknowns on the year.
AAA wrestlers range from 50-70% unknown finishes, while CMLL wrestlers are 12-25%. For this post, that means CMLL guys pretty much dominate the rest of the lists. For this site, that means we’re probably means a ton of CMLL spot shows or they ran a lot less of ’em.
2008: Blue Panther (97)
110 Místico (CMLL) 104 Héctor Garza 95 Volador Jr. 87 Shocker 85 La Sombra 81 La Máscara 66 Dr. Wagner Jr. (indy + AAA) 65 Valiente 65 Blue Panther 64 Máscara Dorada
Top AAA only: Murder Clown (56)
Top IWRG only: Black Terry (44)
Top Puebla only: Asturiano (15)
Top GDL only: Metal Blanco (23)
No big surprises there. Almost all CMLL tecnicos, as usual. UG is the first total rudo at 11, and the Psycho Cirucs are 14-16.
2008: Averno (84)
86 Negro Casas (CMLL) 81 Averno 76 Mephisto 71 Último Guerrero 68 Atlantis 65 Mr. Niebla 64 Felino 64 Ephesto 61 Misterioso II 60 Texano Jr.
Top AAA only: Electroshock (49)
Top IWRG only: Trauma II (44)
Top Puebla only: tie, Sauron & Siki Osama Jr. (10)
Top GDL only:
And this top 10 is all CMLL rudos, as usual. Still, rudos had a better year than in recent years, with some of the top guys winning about 45% of their matches. It’s seemed to be a more 65/35 split. Electroshock is a bit of a surprise.
Best win % (at least 10 known results)
2008: Psycho Clown & Zombie Clown (100%)
100% Murder Clown 100% Monster Clown 100% Psycho Clown 96% Panthro 94% Huracan Ramirez 93% La Parkita (Original) 92% El Hijo Del Santo 92% Strong Man 89% Tigre Universitario 87% Blue Demon Jr.
Top IWRG only: Brazo de Plata (80%)
Top Puebla only: Asturiano (86%)
Top GDL only: tie, Angel de Mal & Mr. Trueno (21)
That’s quite a group. Psycho Circus, Santo & Demon, two Monterrey heros (Tigre and Panthro), the dozen people playing claiming to be Huracan Ramirez, the Parkita who died (maybe – those numbers are always iffy) and STRONG MAN.
Worst win % (at least 10 known results)
2008: Carrona (0%)
0% Espectrito I 7% La Diabólica 8% Mini Chessman 10% Alan Extreme 11% Zayco 12% Bronco III 13% Espíritu 14% Cholo 17% Ozz 18% Sobredosis
Top IWRG only: Pierroth II (21%)
Top Puebla only: Tigre Rojo (20%)
Top GDL only: Katana (6%)
Espectrito I lost all those matches versus Parkita. Diabolica has a tendency to turn on her partners, making it hard for her to win. Alan Extreme not only losses, but also has to deal with being named “Alan Extreme”. Cholo winning 14% is a marked improvement! Ozz & Espiritu being here is great. Sobredosis is another Monterrey area wrestler – can you tell I’ve been working on getting them added to the lists? Durango Kid is actually tied with him, with the same 3-14 record.
I’ve posted the record for every tracked wrestler with at least 10 matches last year, as well as the record for everyone on the five tracked rosters (AAA, CMLL, IWRG, Puebla, GDL – maybe ACMonterrey next year?) while they were on that roster over on this Google Doc. And if any of that made any sense, let me know in the comments below.
