best matches of 2011, v0.1

This is a draft and a starting point. Since everyone wants this sort of list in a month, I figure I might as well start on it now. Most of this was just from flipping thru recaps; it is not meant to be definite and probably is missing quite a few. Additions and corrections are encouraged.

List is in chronological order. YouTube links where available.

Matches I have not yet seen that I think may make this list

– Averno vs Mascara for the mask match
– Guerrero Maya & Atlantis vs Ultimo Guerrero & Dragon Rojo [CMLL TAG]
– Daga vs Suicida from IWL

Deficient in IWRG, could use help there. I think there’s a LA Park/Mesias trios I’m missing, surely some more.

  1. Daga vs Suicida is a pretty damn good match. Style wise it is worked like a typical “Roh-super-indy-epic-strongstyle”, so if you aren’t into that kind of match, you probably won’t like it. Crap finish too.

    There was a lot of good IWRG stuff, but a lot of it wasn’t as good as last year, and was somewhat repetitive. Can’t remember if the good Comando Negro stuff was this year or end of ’10…

  2. @Nikita: Comando Negro stuff was late 2010.

    You should add Nicho vs. Negro Navarro. What about Demus 3:16 vs. Virus w/ the GREATEST STIP EVER?

    @thecubsfan I thought you had already seen the Daga vs. Suicida and the mask match.

    Dr. Cerebro vs Comando Negro, IWRG 1/30 – 4 YES
    Argos/Black Terry/Multifacetico vs. Dr. Cerebro/Mortiz/Semental, IWRG 8/7 – 3 YES

  5. What an ass… I was gonna make a ‘worth watching’ list in my new blog post! But mine was gonna be AAA TV only so you’ve trumped me once again!

    Off the top of my head a couple more:

    Turbo vs Black Thunder – 7/24/11

    Astral vs Pierrothito – 4/5/11

    Jack Evans/Extreme Tiger vs Silver King/Ultimo Gladiador – 2/19/11

    Los Angeles Celestiales vs Virus/Raziel/Cancerbero – 2/4/11 (surprised Phil didn’t mention this b/c I know he liked it)

    Hopefully Dinamic Black/Comando Negro airs on IWRG TV next week b/c the clips on 3ra Caida made it look like a no-brain MOTYC.

  6. My review of Doc Cerebro vs. Comando Negro:

    My review of Traumas vs. Apaches:

    My review of Terry & Navarro vs. Apache & Angel Mortal:

    My review of Multifacetico vs. Oficial 911 (7/17 Apuesta match):

    If you like brawls, you will probably like the marathon match between the Park Sr & Jr and Wagner Jr & III:

    Just linking my blog since all the video links are on those pages…

  7. Here would be mine for IWRG TV
    Negro Navarro & Trauma I vs Hijo De Pirata Morgan & Pirata Morgan (IWRG 2011/03/03)
    Negro Navarro/Shu El Guerrero/El Hijo Del Diablo vs Black Terry/Dr Cerebro/Solar I (3/31/11 IWRG)
    Negro Navarro/Trauma I/Trauma II vs Pirata Morgan/Barba Roja/El Hijo Pirata Morgan (4/14/11 IWRG

    From AAA
    Silver Cain/Ultimo Gladiator/Chessman vs Joe Lider/Heavy Metal/Electroshock-10/3/11

  8. I watched the AAA SLP show from 5/18 last night and you can add Mesias/Extreme Tiger/Jack Evans vs L.A. Park/Decnis/Halloween to the list. What a freakin’ great match! Started slow but really picked up. I believe Cubs’ description was: “GREAT! Best match in AAA so far this year!”
