Ludark Shaitan vs Felina Metálica – FILLM – 01/20/2018 – GOOD
I don’t know if Felina insulted Ludark or crossed her in some way or what, but Ludark dishes out traditional Ludark punishment big time. This video is fascinating because there are two Go Pros on the turnbuckles along with 1-2 floor cams and the footage seems to be professionally edited. There’s one spot leading to a double clothesline that is so great. This is super libre, bordering on deathmatch, which I don’t watch too much of, but I liked it for the wrestling, the arena, and the production.
Lady Shani © vs Faby Apache [Reina De Reinas] – AAA – 01/26/2018 – GOOD
The build up’s no-decision leads to an even more brutal and decisive meeting at the first big show of the year. Shani is still a little sloppy and Faby isn’t all the way rudo yet, but the finishing sequence delivers on violence.
Averno, Chessman, Súper Fly © vs Aerostar, Drago, Raptor vs Angelikal, Bengala, Máscara de Bronce vs Carta Brava Jr., Mocho Cota Jr., Tito Santana [AAA TRIOS] – AAA – 01/26/2018 – GREAT
A match in one of the most classic lucha formats: put a ton of guys out there so they can do all their coolest moves. And wow do they ever. The “story” actually breaks down into the tecnicos teams doing the wildest flips possible while the rudo teams do the most mask ripping possible. Aerostar doesn’t climb the lighting rig in this one but don’t let that stop you from seeing the insane thing he does do.
Psycho Clown vs Rey Escorpión [bull terrier] – AAA – 01/26/2018 – GREAT
This ended up being my favorite match on Guerra de Titanes. A top quality brawl with added humor constructed around how stupid bull terrier/chain/strap matches are with their “touch the corners” rules. The part where Rey Escorpión finally gets the chain on made me laugh harder than anything in wrestling in a long time. And then they bleed a lot all over the place. The finish is a AAA finish, but what can you do.
Angelikal, Máscara de Bronce, Hijo Del Vikingo, Lanzelot vs Australian Suicide, Averno, Chessman, Súper Fly – AAA – 02/02/2018 – GOOD
Argenis came out first to tell the crowd he was injured. Part of this injury announcement was him holding off the four rudos by swinging a large sword around. AAA is good. Máscara de Bronce (age 19, born in 1998) took his spot on the team and showed why he is a future superstar of lucha libre. All of the tecnicos were extremely good in this match. The rudos were extremely rowdy. The crowd came alive and everything in the match made sense. I hope that every time I spend my whole evening watching a AAA TV taping on Twitch, I get a match at least this good.
La Nueva Generación Dinamita (Cuatrero, Forastero, Sansón) © vs Los Kamikazes del Aire (Alas de Acero, Aramis, Iron Kid) [MEX TRIOS] – Lucha Memes – 02/05/2018 – GOOD
The Dinamitas get to be the big boys in a match for once and it’s against the underdog-est flipping team in the Mexican indies. The Kamikazes have some really inventive spots, they get Arena Naucalpan really hot, and they provide an admirable challenge for NGD’s belts.
