Great Lucha > Juicio Final (2000)

Posted 01 May 2017

Torneo Cibernetico (CMLL PPV 03/17/00) I thought this was a terrific Cibernetico. The famous Ciberneticos from '97 featured well-known names and high profile feuds. This threw a spotlight on the midcard, showcasing how much depth there was on both the rudo and tecnico sides. The most interesting thing about the bout for me was that even though it fel...

Great Lucha > March 2000 CMLL

Posted 01 May 2017

Atlantis, Tarzan Boy & Rayo de Jalisco Jr. vs. El Satanico, Cien Caras & Bestia Salvaje (CMLL 03/02/00) Stone Cold! Stone Cold! CMLL is getting more WWF by the second. I liked how you had all these old school luchadores working a classic rudo beatdown and suddenly there were run-ins and shit. That wasn't unprecedented in Mexico but for CMLL i...

Great Lucha > Satanico vs. Tarzan Boy (hair vs. hair)

El Satanico vs. Tarzan Boy (CMLL 02/25/00, Hair Match) Here we go! I'm psyched. Satanico's Phantom of the Opera entrance was amazing.

He stops to give us the Ri...

Great Lucha > February 2000 CMLL

Posted 12 March 2017

NB: I watched these out of order but am posting them chronologically.Mr. Niebla & Olimpico vs. Blue Panther & Rencor Latino (CMLL 02/01/00) Not content with two blood feuds, CMLL decide to add a third. This is some old school booking from CMLL. It reminds me of the early 80s when they'd have an apuesta match nearly every week. This was a bit...

Great Lucha > The Atlantis vs. Villano III feud (January 2000)

Posted 08 February 2017

Atlantis, Negro Casas & Mr. Niebla vs. Dr. Wagner Jr., Villano III & Pierroth Jr. (CMLL 01/14/00) This was another strong lead-in match. I'm not a huge fan of trios matches where the wrestlers rip each other's masks off but it wouldn't be much of an apuesta feud if they didn't do it. And to their credit, they didn't spend an eternity doing it...
