[1990-08-24-EMLL] Javier Llanes vignette

Recommended Posts

This is a little cooler than the Rayo vignette, as we get some sparring action as the announcer recites his favorite holds and his family history. El Gusano means "The Maggot," in case we weren't clued in that this was a bad guy.

I liked that they showed Llanes as a capable wrestler even though he's supposed to be a rudo. It's rare that American promotions emphasize that kind of thing in introductory vignettes, even with guys like Ted DiBiase and Curt Hennig, who are two of the best heel workers in the world.

 

"The Maggot", eh? Sounds like an inductee for turncoat Slaughter's "Camel Corps".

 

I'm enjoying these vignettes more than the lucha matches, believe it or not.

We see Llanes looking out over the skyline holding his finger up to indicate he’s number one, posing and flexing, and working on his submission holds in the wrestling ring. Lovely robe he’s wearing at the end of this!
