Tossing sand in your Va-Jay-Jay


« on: March 23, 2017, 08:29:41 PM »

Not exactly new, but new to me.  Watched the first 3 episodes of Season 1 tonight on Netflix.  (was bored)

Came away actually impressed.  The wrestlers and action are actually pretty damn good.  You will see shit on here that people in WWE can't (or won't) do. 

I will say that nearly everyone on here seems to be juiced up.  John  Morrison (Johnny Mundo) looks like he put on 15-20 solid pounds.  Chavo Guerrero looks to be bulking.  Son of Havoc is better built than the majority of the WWE stars. 

I would recommend you watching the match between Prince Puma and Johnny Mundo episode 1 and the triple threat match of Drago, Fenix and Pentagon episode 3.  They really put on some good shit.  That package piledriver into an over the shoulder piledriver (or death drop if that is what it is called) looked brutal.

The tv camera work is top notch too.  Better than WWE.  The down sides....  Stryker and Vampiro are horrible announcers with a very limited phrase book that they reuse over and over again in every single match.  Chin Check... bar fight... would you like to add something Vamp.... etc....    uggghhhh...

Plus you have to see Vampiro and Konnan looking like fat sleaze bags.  Shells of themselves.  Konnan is the worst because you know he actually believes all the gangster and barrio shit he talks is his true lifestyle.  (He was pathetic in Sullivan's Dungeon of Doom with his "gang" gimmick.)  Plus the floor seems to be dirty as hell.   Every time someone goes outside the ring, you see dirt, dust and grim plastered all over their backs.

But would recommend it for a quick viewing.  Good action.  Just keep the remote handy to fast forward past all the dialouge.

Been watching it for the last month or so. Great action. Much better than WWE. Some great high flying and bumps, even from the women and bigger guys.

I've been also watching Lucha Underground for quite some time now and they have a good roster of talent.

The action IS good.  And the physiques are a throw back to the old days where everyone was jacked.

The camera work is top notch.  Much better than WWE.  So far the only thing I don't like is the Konnan crap and the commentary.  The commentary really sucks at times.  I mean... like two 6th graders talking.  Matt is horrible.  Shit like :

Vamp : That guy is fast.  He is like a bullet.

Matt : You mean after it is fired from the rifle right?

Vamp : Correct.

Matt : What kind of a rifle?

Vamp : A precision rifle.

Matt : You mean like a sniper one?

Vamp : No just a precision one.


or this cringe worthy one

(luchadore does a basic body slam on his opponent, the opponent gets up and gets a second body slam and then scoots out of the ring)

Matt : There is it.. a body slam and he is up... oh look there it is again, another body slam and he is now bailing to the outside..

Vamp : He's getting out of the ring to regroup and slow the pace

Matt : And so he doesn't get a third body slam.   You don't want to be body slammed three times.

Vamp (looks at Matt sideways in a strange way):  Really?  Why not?

Matt : Cause the third slam is when the lactic acid starts building up....

And while King Cuerno (sp?) seems to be an OK wrestler, coming to the ring wearing a deer head like a top hat is just laughable.

So how does this company get away with very obvious AAS use with nearly their entire roster?   The guy Cage on there is jacked beyond belief.  Dude has some skill sets for a big man too. Though it gets old seeing him rip off other people's finishers.   Jackhammer and F5.

There is obviously no wellness program there. Cheesy

Prince Puma is actually Ricochet. He's one of the best in the world. He and Will Osprey really are awesome.

LU has such a great diversity of talent which I like BUT they are struggling. Being on El Rey has not given them the exposure they need.

Much of the talent is leaving due to issues, Pentago, Fenix, Puma etc....
