[2016-11-04-LLE] L.A. Park vs Rey Escorpion

Recommended Posts

Sometimes you open a video of a match and think "here we go". And there may be a pre-match interview, ok, skip that. Maybe a video package for a preview, ok, skip that. Boring entrances, ok, skip that, Endless introductions, ok, skip that. Then the match starts with something boring and generic like arm wingers and you wonder if it wouldn't be better to just close that youtube window and go do something else. Maybe go watch cat meme videos, reconnect with your childhood friends. Anything else really. And sometimes you see LA Park and Rey Escorpion holding chairs ready to attack each other and think "every decision I've ever made leading up to this moment has been correct". Cause that's what you're really here for in the pro wrestling bubble, bandana man and skeleton man pretending to try to kill each other with more than half of the match covered in two control segments. And even when they move away from the garbage wrestling the match is still great because of their tremendous personalities. Escorpion manages to incorporate taking off Park's mask into a Clothesline so smoothly, and he immediately makes sure to cover his base and distract the ref. It's insane that Park is doing the kind of crazy dives he did here when he's that old and fat but it just adds to the chaos. ****

Really great LA Park style arena brawl with Escorpion predictably fitting in great. Both guys really pound the crap out of each other, chucking chairs and cases of beer at heads and faces. Escorpion has some of the best punches in the world and he really cracks PARK. I loved Rey battling over the snack tray with the vendor, total asshole heel move to steal a guys popcorn just to whack PARK. Also really liked both of PARK's fatboy dives, he is approaching early 90's Super Porky level and is totally smushing people when he lands. Finish was kind of dumb, but perfectly within the kind of thing you get in your PARK brawls.

This was fun. It's exactly the kind of crazy brawl LA Park shines in, and I like Escorpion in this environment too. Park has 2 really nice dives, and just murders Escorpion with an awesome powerbomb onto a plastic crate off the ring apron. Finish is silly but what can you do. Never really gets to that next level like some luncha brawls do, especially the 2017 Park vs Rush matches, but still lots of fun and worth watching. ***1/4
