2004 Recommendations

Recommended Posts

The thought of extended yearbooks has certainly crossed my mind but the biggest restraint I see is the lack of variety from wrestling promos except WWE/TNA. I believe cherry picking the best WWE promo stuff from this year would probably be comparable to the 1993-1994 stuff for the most part, but one thing that is refreshing with a yearbook is that you are usually only 20-30 minutes away from a different promotion or landscape to check out. Even some subpar stuff like some ECW or a lackluster USWA tv episode is refreshing when you have watched 1-2 hours of Japan and lucha footage. I think you could get by somewhat by just mixing in the different kind of indies but I am not sure how it would look from a end product standpoint. I understand having "wrestling history" displayed in this format is very appealing to myself and there is a ton of hidden gems I have never heard of before my yearbook watching.

Honestly I'd be keen even if it was mostly all WWE, TNA and ROH, but that's just my personal taste, much the same way that what interests me about the older ones is all the WWF, WCW and ECW. I'm sure there would be stuff out there that I'd never even heard of though.

Charles Lucero vs. Blue Panther, WWA World Middleweight Championship, Lucha Libre Azteca 5/9/2004

 

I didn't love this as much as I hoped I would, but given your love of lucha title matches you'll probably want to include this.
