dance party ’93!

recap

so slow, but still so painful looking

taped 1993-04-30 @ Plaza De Toros Mexico City

Salsero, Super Calo, Winners vs Baby Sharon, May Flowers, Rudy Reyna: This was an interesting pick, because no one in the match is left around in AAA and current AAA has de-emphasized both dancers and exoticos (and when they do have dancers, they don’t really look like these three técnicos) – but it was also a fun match to see just because it was so different than anything we might see today. I’m not sure I could handle Salsero, Winners and Super Calo like this every week, but it was an amusing extra to get one week.

taped 2012-12-21 @ Unidad Deportiva Acapulco, Guerrero

rookie of the year

Dinastía, Mascarita Dorada, Octagoncito vs Mini Charly Manson, Mini Histeria, Mini Psicosis: Felt so rushed; there was a lot of action but not a moment for any of it to sink in. Different than the XMW because there definitely was a progression in moves, but not so different in that there wasn’t much selling because every had to hurry up and get ready for the next spot. It actually felt like they had sped up the footage 10-15% just to squeeze as much of in as possible (but they still couldn’t cut out the 2:45 minutes of people walking to the ring accompanied by a bad PA system.) I think this would’ve made Great with 2 more minutes of action and maybe not even one additional spot. It’s still good.

 

double rotation Drago

Drago, El Elegido, Fénix vs Devil Rocker, Machine Rocker, Soul Rocker: absurdly and comically short. I guess I should be thankful they left in a minimal amount of Elegido and the most Fenix and Drago you could get in four minutes, but it’s a four minute match. This might as well have been highlights. This might have been better being highlights, because they could’ve shown all the spots.

 

Mini Clown gets stuck, gets squashed, no one notices

Monster Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown vs Máscara Año 2000 Jr., Texano Jr., Toscano: You’ve seen this! About the usual Consejo/Psycho match with Toscano acting like a goofball. They straight repeated the finish from the last Consejo match on Fusion, which was a bit jarring (and lazy.)
