10/13 AAA: Devil Rocker, Machine Rocker, Soul Rocker vs Fenix, Freelance, Samurai del Sol – excellent

Have Watched, but nothing made the cut
10/13 CMLL GALA
10/13 CMLL 52MX
10/13 CMLL C3 – Ángel de Oro, La Máscara, Rey Cometa vs Black Warrior, Niebla Roja, Puma King was best match on the show, Sombra vs Volador was less a match and more a greatest hits montage.
10/13 CMLL FOX – both matches good for weekly stuff
10/17 AAA FUSION – Infierno Rockers match probably was slightly better in full. The version I saw was one of the worst of the year.

Matches still Sitting on my DVR to watch

great match roundup, week of 01/29/2012

Great/Excellent matches this week

Nothing.

Have Watched, did make it

01/28 Fox Sports: Volador/Dorada was neat in parts but wasn’t a full match
01/28 AAA: opening match was at the typical level for what we saw
01/28 C3: if you watch the Skandalo/Cometa spots here and Televisa, things start to look a bit familiar
01/28 52MX
01/28 Televisa: Amapola vs Estrellita was not quite below standard.

(can also add 02/04 52MX and Televisa to this list. Some stuff good, nothing really bad, but nothing must see.)

Have Not Watched

01/28 IWAS/NWA: nah.
01/28 GDL: will end upw atching this week, I think.
01/28 ACM: or at least the part I put correctly.

IWRG did not air. Only the three way hardcore match aired from the Perros show.

great match roundup, week of 01/22/2012

Forgot to do this, then got busy. It’ll be back on Friday this week if I can get to it.

Great/Excellent matches this week

We have matches here!

Volador/Sombra from FantasticMania Night 2 (Excellent) I wouldn’t call anything else must see, but there was good stuff involving Mascara Dorada & Rush.

La Máscara, La Sombra, Máscara Dorada vs Mr. Águila, Psicosis, Volador Jr. from 01/21 FOX (Great). That whole taping lived up to the hype as being one of the best in recent years.

Have Watched, nothing to add

the Noches de Coliseo match – no.
01/21 CMLL Televisa – main event was close, but there’s a better Hijos del Averno vs Reyes del Atlatnida match if they get the chance.
01/21 CMLL C3

Have Not Watched

I do plan to get to last week’s GDL, for the trios title match. And Chico Che/Black Terry is still in the pile. Maybe I’ll end up watching both matches in the pique back to back.

Never found whatever AAA aired.

What am I missing?

great match roundup, week of 01/15/2012

Great/Excellent matches this week
I thought the Guerreros vs Atlantida was close but needed more drama in the ending to make it. Nothing else really got a lot of consideration. It’s a slow period.

Have Watched, nothing to add
CMLL Guerreros del Ring on 52MX: 2012-01-14 – this was extra lousy
CMLL on CadenaTres: 2012-01-14
CMLL on FOX: 2012-01-07
Big Neurosis, Ernesto Chavana, Tun Tun b Rico Rodriguez, Simbolo, the Beast – this wasn’t 100% Monterrey because no one turned, but it was close.

Have Not Watched
CMLL Guadalajara: 2012-01-14 – will watch if the title match airs tonight
Arena Coliseo Monterrey: 2012-01-14 – did not watch, only 2 falls anyway
Perros del Mal on TVCDeportes: 2012-01-12 – has not turned up yet
CMLL Arena Puebla: 2012-01-16 – has not turned up
IWRG 2012-01-15:  only about 2/3rds of the show has turned up, mostly tournament matches.

Late Adds

Nothing here.

Other Stuff

Rather than wait until the end of the year to post the MOTYC list, I’ll just keep a running log based on these posts and your comments. You can find it right here, and I’ll be updating it about the same time as I do these posts.

I’ve already added the two matches from Arena Lopez Mateos from last weekend people have been recommending. If there’s anything else worth sharing from this week, post below.
