>24 days until wrestling becomes great again
Don't want to get my hopes too high up to the point where they can't possibly meet them... but they didn't disappoint when I had my hopes up for Ultima Lucha, so I have no doubt this is going to be great.
I still need to catch up on Season 1. El Patron just showed up to clean house.
>my face when ADR returned to WWE
So any guesses how the belts will move?
I feel that they should keep Mil Muertes as indimitading as possible and have him easily win most matches, with only occasional rare struggle.
And keep the championship belt until season finale.
Meanwhile I don't care about the disciples of death, so they can just drop dead and give up the trio's belt.
Though, with trio's stuff, LU's problem is that they have only one interesting trio.
Rest of the time it's just bunch of solo acts teaming up for one match, losing and then going back to their regular solo stuff.
They don't need him. They can take literally any 3rd string Main Event jobber from WWE and make them work. It just proves that the problem at WWE is 100% on the creative.
Sandow, for example, would be diamonds in the hands of LU.
I have a feeling Fenix got the mexican mitb just to job to Mil. I mean he's pretty good but there hasn't been much, if any, buildup to him being a champ.
Next #1 contender has to be between The Mac, Pent Jr., Johnny Mundo or Puma. Was hoping SoH would get a singles run for the championship but it seems they're keeping him in trios. Pent. Jr. vs Mil Muertes at next Ultima Lucha would be a guaranteed 5 star match by any standard.
Watching season 1 atm. Honestly a top-tier wrestling show.
Things I like so far:
>the temple itself, looks grungy but not like a high school gym/bingo hall
>the promos and story segments, short and simple
>the way storylines progress even though most of the roster doesn't speak English
>Dario Cueto as the heel mastermind
>the talent, mix of AAA wrestlers and good indie wrestlers
>the fact that it's shot like a TV-drama instead of like Raw
>the length, 45 minutes is perfect for this content, could not be able to sit through a 3 hour ppv with this pace
>the overall booking and feuds
Things I don't like so far:
>20 hurricanranas per match, every match, half of which are botched/awkward
>Matt Striker and Vampiro's commentary, wish they had more of a heel/face dynamic like JR and Lawler, or Joey and Cyrus
>The fact that the refs don't seem to be bothered with cheating or who's the legal man in tag matches
But most of those are just nit-picks, overall it's probably the best wrestling show I've seen and I'm not a particularly big fan of lucha libre. The booking, storylines, in-ring action and show length are all great, which even when they were at their peak I can't say about WWE Raw or Monday Nitro.
Because there are like 3 big guys in the entire promotion. It's fun to see them fight all the little mexicans and Cage is a pretty good worker.
I agree he needs a bit more promos and mictime to flesh himself out a bit.
My biggest problem with an otherwise great promotion is every single match having a dive to the outside spot. It stops being cool when it's the 8th one of the.
btw Drago best wrestler on the show
>Because there are like 3 big guys in the entire promotion. It's fun to see them fight all the little mexicans and Cage is a pretty good worker.
Maybe it is that wresting wise, I'm more into fast acrobatic stuff than big guy throwing other guy around stuff. And that I think that Big Ryck and Mil Muertes are at least interesting as characters, while "They call him Cage because he is a machine!" is not.
It's funny seen the position of the guys in LU and the position of the guys in AAA, angelico said in a interview, pentagon jr in aaa is shit and fucking awesome in LU.
Also said mistico 1 is shit and an awfull person
>Also said mistico 1 is shit and an awfull person
was there any doubt? nigga pulled out a gun on based del rio and del rio got in front of him and told him to either use it and shoot him or get the fuck out of his face.
His character of "Arrogant Prick who gives no shits about Lucha tradition" is awesome.
>if he would do a leap from the roof of the office, I'd learn to appreciate him.
You want him to steal Angelico's gimmick? That fuck's wrong with you?
personally i like cage because his style is old school harcore Olympic wrestler like kurt angle and his diskus elbow looks goofy but reminds me of a giant roman centurion he uses a mix of old school strong man and collegiate wrestling thats what i see
Just watched Ultima Lucha today, loved it. Everything about this series has been cathartic when WWE has been so bad for years. Massively hyped for S2.
Cage owns, initially I figured he'd be bad like WWE mastodons, but the guy can move. I first thought his theme started with 'OHHH SHIIIIIIT', was disappointed that it's not. His match vs Mack was fantastic, great pacing. The stunner spot was hilarious.
Cage has been using the Steiner Screwdriver as a finisher lately so fuck you. And not some watered down WWMEME bullshit version. He dropped Aerostar directly on top of his fucking head in PWG this year and it was beautiful.
>just three days after the crushing disappointment the Rumble will undoubtedly be we will get the return of the GOAT Wrestling Show
