Something I’m Putting Here Because I Don’t Know Where Else To Do It

Rey de Reyes: a really good show

1) Dralion, Rey Orion, Sick Boy b Gemelo Muerte I, Gemelo Muerte II, Rico Rodriguez
Hasn’t aired! Probably was at least OK.

gif to distract from lists

2) Fénix b Juventud Guerrera, Daga, Crazy Boy [AAA FUSION, final]
GREAT, see above

3) Devil Rocker, Machine Rocker, Soul Rocker b Monster Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown
good match for this feud

4) El Mesías b Heavy Metal, La Parka, Parka Negra, Octagón, Pentagón Jr. [Rey de Reyes, semifinal]
5) LA Park b Jack Evans, Villano IV, Psicosis, Drago, Chessman [Rey de Reyes, semifinal]
6) Canek b el Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Cibernético, Electroshock, Silver King, Toscano [Rey de Reyes, semifinal]
All okay/good and perfectly fine for their role on their show

7) Fabi Apache b Mari Apache, Taya Valkyrie, LuFisto [Reina De Reinas, final]
very good, better than expected

8) Texano Jr. b Blue Demon Jr. [AAA HEAVY]
GREAT, better than expected

9) El Mesías b Canek, LA Park [Rey de Reyes, final]
not as good as I wanted but still okay/good

Now, my favorite match of the AAA/CMLL big show weekend was the CMLL main event, becuase I’m more invested in the adventures of Stuka, Rey Cometa and Namajague, and that show had a lot of okay/good stuff in the undercard. Rey de Reyes had great matches and more good stuff up and down the card. I don’t know if anyone’s going to beat it this year; I sure hope they try, because if AAA & CMLL come close, it’s going to be a pretty good night. Last year, there were a lot of shows with one good match and a lot of just okay stuff and it was hard to pick one card from either of the two major promotions as a standout show. This year is off to a strong start.

I’m also kind of still watching the TxT shows, in that they’re on my TiVo and I’ve watched the minis opener and I keep telling myself to watch the rest but it hasn’t happened yet.

One thought to “great match roundup: week of 2013-03-30”

  1. Wow. Now I really wanna watch Texano/Demon. All the matches on RdR were good. I got thrown off during the Fusion match at a lack of crowd reaction but realized it was cause of the fusion announcing. Very good match though and logical too.
