CMLL Thread

Post by -mp- » Sat Jul 14, 2018 10:46 pm

I'm getting back into this, largely on the back of this upcoming LA Park vs Rush mask vs hair match at Aniversario. So I may post about it here.

They run Arena Mexico every Friday night (Viernes Espectaculares!) and it all airs on YouTube so it's easy to follow if you're interested.

I want to check this out! I went to a Friday night show at Arena Mexico when I went to Mexico City in 2015. Total wrestling bucket list item crossed off! I still have the La Sombra T-shirt I bought there for like zero pesos.

Hell yeah man. I’m scared of Mexico but if I ever go there lucha is the thing I want to go see, and Arena Mexico is the Mecca.

I just got done watching the main event of the 5/25 show, which is Parka’s first match back in trios action against Ignobernables. The brawls between him and Rush are the kind of hate filled stuff you just don’t see anymore, it’s elecrifying

Yeah I was only in Mexico City for one night because Jen was there on business. I told her I’d come but only if we could go to a lucha show, because I may never get the opportunity again.

Also, US Customs really has some questions when you’re only in Mexico for one night...

Parka's beer barrel drum of a gut is just incredible. He's gotta be pushing 325 lbs

And he's not waiting for HOOSH to make it to the ring. They're fighting on the ramp amongst the sexy dancing women!

Park has to keep pulling up his pants and it's just great. Didn't stop him from hitting a tope suicida

God I love this shit. If you're sick of the New Japan and WWE crossfit high spot mungus style of wrestling (I'm not, but I'm getting there) this is the antitdote for what ails. A complete and total throwback.

Fucking Christ Rush's back just got shredded by a glass picture frame to the head. No it doesn't make any sense, none of this does.

I can’t imagine who would lose that! Rush’s hair is so part of his look. But I can’t see Parka unmasking. Very intriguing!

I knew it was too good to be true. Per Meltzer:
The ticket prices announced for the CMLL Anniversary show on 9/14 suggests that there will not be an L.A. Park vs. Rush mask vs. hair match as was originally scheduled. Tickets go on sale on Saturday at 11 a.m. Nothing has been announced. There are people in Mexico who are connected who told me earlier this week that the match was now off but they weren't with CMLL. The belief is if that match was happening, the prices would be higher than they are listed.
