Mascara Dorada

This was a shorter week than expected. Next week will be even shorter. I thought about catching up on the watch later pile, then spent a lot of time away from this project. That was probably a good idea.

Misterio & Puma

This week’s recaps

Sure will be a long time before I have to do six recaps for a week. (Wait, what?) I can’t imagine anyone still needs me to tell them to watch Park/Rush at this point but I’m going to do it again anyway. I probably should be pushing people to do the same with Rey & Puma, because I’d bet less people have actually seen that match once you figure in Azteca in Mexico versus El Rey in the US. (And I really can’t believe they gave that away for free on YouTube; it says something about LU that they’d give away the two biggest matches from Ultima Lucha 2 for free on YouTube.)

No Elite recap this week because they moved it to Saturday, moving it to next week in this totally arbitrary cut off. I dunno, I realized I have rated Leyenda de Plata higher than Elgin/UG and I’m not sure I agree with myself or this entire process.

great match roundup, week of 2016-07-02

Lots of not good matches this week. I really didn’t like a lot of that Tuesday show. I probably underrated Havoc/Cage. It didn’t occur to me how great the midcard matches have been on Friday until putting this together.

great match roundup, week of 2016-06-25

AAA aired the Lucha World Cup, so there’s no recap this week. No IWRG, no Proesa, no Noches, so there’s nothing on my TV list else to check out. I really liked the Gran Prix and Fenix/Mundo more than other people.
