  1. I didn't expect to see a solid Match of the Decade contender at this point, but this was it. Just an incredible match, if CMLL did this kind of story based intense pro wrestling more often there would be no stopping the company. The psychology was sharp as a knife, early Virus working over Metalico with shots to the head followed by a control switching dive sequence felt straight out of 90s AJPW. The struggle and nearfall sequences where top tier and as good as it gets in lucha. I realize I'm sounding a little generic here, but they worked so many fine details into the back and forth, combined with a determined Metalico giving it all to take down the trickiest wrestler in the world. I haven't seen as much Metalico as I probably should have but he was great here as the aging gunslinger who would throw fists and fight tooth and nail. Even his sloppiness added to the match. Virus was as classy as usual. Every counter was incredibly well executed and perfectly timed, with some great struggle over holds and pins thrown in. Loved the constant punch outs which gave the match a feel like somebody would have to be KOd for it to end. Gotta love the fact they made suicide dive feel this epic in 2019.

    1991-03-31-WWF-Wrestling Challenge

    World Wrestling Federation WWF Wrestling Challenge Aired March 31, 1991 (Taped March 12, 1991) Biloxi, MS Col. Mustafa vs Dale Wolfe Big Bossman vs Jim Corbett Mr. Perfect vs Reno Riggins The Warlord vs John Allen Ted DiBiase vs Pat Armstrong Bold matches are PWO recommended.
  3. Lots of good stuff in this Cibernetico with the opening exchange between Ultimo Guerrero and Olimpico being especially good. Really fast and intricate knucklelock work. Lots of great athleticism on display throughout. Unfortunately there were quite a few botches, including Bucanero hitting an accidental(?) avalanche Powerbomb on Sendero and then just killing him with an avalanche brainbuster that seemed to have knocked him out cold. It kind of killed the crowd too because everyone was thinking that poor guy might be dead. Buccanero eliminating a bunch of guys added some intensity and the finish was good.

    1985-03-31-WWF-Wrestlemania

    WWF Wrestlemania March 31, 1985 New York, NY To argue that the first Wrestlemania featured no great matches would be a correct argument, but it would also be an irrelevant one. The idea of Wrestlemania as an annual tradition that really felt like the grandest night of the year was still a few years away, but the first attempt still made for a fun show. The show is structured in a way that makes for an enjoyable watch, with the matches most likely to bring excitement thrown out first while the biggest stars were showcased at the end. The involvement of celebrities like Cyndi Lauper, Mr. T, Muhammad Ali, Liberace, and the Rockettes drove wrestling purists nuts at the time, but the pageantry was effective in establishing this as something more important than the normal Madison Square Garden show, even while sidestepping some of the WWF's biggest feuds in the company so they'd have continued resonance on house shows. Ultimately, in the same way 'Mania was not about the matches, it was not about the card. The goal was to produce a social happening and in that sense, it was a smashing -- and enduring -- success.

  5. About 12 of 21 minutes shown. Too bad because this looked like some of the best junior action of the year. The lucha vs. Shootstyle matwork they did was just beautiful – so smooth and Tajiri knew exactly to go into desperation mode whenever Hidaka locked in a hold. These are of course two guys with high end movesets and spectacular spots galore, but everything made sense and they never got overly cute.
  6. Years after putting over Inoki in a historic match, Johnny Powers returns to japan to face another japanese top gaijin in a much less historic match. Powers is looking somewhat older and sadder, like a Bob Ross gone off the rails here. Powers still has really nice basic offense, mean looking elbows and knees and stomps and what not. He spends what feels like 20 minutes beating on Kimura and this would've been good had Kimura sold any of that and ens gaged powers in some significant form before the poor finish. There's also about 4 or 5 nut shots in this match. Thesz was the ref and him punching Powers in the face for doing the exact same stuff Thesz was doing 20 years earlier was the funniest moment of the match. But yeah, don't watch this.
  7. This was a fun defensive, cagey bout where neither guy was willing to get thrown easily. This builds really nice into the second half where both guys have enough and start throwing stiff slaps and headbutts. Go was chasing Hara here, hitting a mean dropkick and dropping him on a table for a spot that was pretty crazy by 1980 standards. Match had good heat and tension and the uncooperativeness made this a cool encounter.
  8. Pretty much a 1980s MOVEZ~! match as this was basically all 4 guys running in to hit their stuff, tag out, and repeat. I liked the stiff dropkicks, nasty piledriver and graceful arm whips so I'll take it over today's thigh slap happy MOVEZ~! Matches. There was a cool moment where Mighty and Kimura slapped the shit out of eachother and then Kimura annihilates Hamaguchi with a ruthless dive. Animal is down and out and I was thinking this match actually had some drama going now but seconds later a lousy DQ happens. Well, this had awesome heat and I now wanna see more Haruka Eigen matches lurking amidst the the sea of IWE, so a rematch may be somewhere down there.
