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.

great match roundup, week of 2016-06-18

Getting back on track. The best match this week was savaged pretty hard by the feed dying. I very much wish CMLL would put it up in full, mostly so I could get people who don’t watch CMLL to check it out.

great match roundup, week of 2016-05-28

Matanza is strong
Matanza is strong

The long list of recaps

I changed the grade on Team AAA/Team Japan other matches. The Lucha World Cup matches are structured so different from normal matches and I struggle to find useful ratings for them.

great match roundup, week of 2016-05-21

This week was not much better than the last one. No wonder I’m behind. I think the Monterrey trios match that I haven’t reviewed yet is probably the best of the weekend, though the AAA’s women tag was really not bad (and the Faby/Mary stuff is the best stuff AAA is doing – they’re very fired up and it’s not great news for the rudas.)

great match roundup, week of 2016-05-07

the hand of death can't be restrained by a coffin
I think your feelings about this GIF essentially mirror your feelings about this entire show at this point

This was a weak semana. Nothing great this week, and a lot of grudging ‘good’ grades. Even grudging OK grades – I’d be very unhappy about how Octagon Jr. was used if it wasn’t totally irrelevant by the time I got to writing about it.

Casas & Hechicero is clearly the best match of the week, but I haven’t rewatched it yet.
