Lucha Libre Azteca Vol. 29
Written By Robert Bihari
Jungla Negra Jr./Orientales I y II vs Payasos Tricolor: Standard match. Not much emotion even though it was for the trios titles and nobody seemed to be trying harder than usual. Orientales are so much more fun as tecnicos and Jungla Jr. is much better as a rudo. So of course the Orientales played rudo here and Jungla played their tecnico partner. Sad thing is there will be a rematch on a later volume.:(
Atlantis/Blue Panther/Tigre Universitario vs Super Parka/VOLADOR JR./Charles Lucero: Atlantis should have been studying here b/c Volador Jr. was teaching him how to be AN AMAZING RUDO! I can’t say enough about Volador’s performance… so amazing. If it weren’t for his great highspots, I’d go on for the next month about how he should be turned rudo and team with Misterioso II instead of feuding with him. This makes me all the more sad Fredo never got Mistico/Perrito vs Super Parka/Volador Jr..:( Don’t underestimate Super Parka either… he was great here too.
Gato Volador/Tigre Universitario/Babe Rap vs Volador Jr./Averno/Potro Jr.: Another great rudo performance by Volador Jr.! He also had on the coolest outfit in the world that I so need a screen cap of so it can be my new wallpaper. The tecnicos were a bunch of fun in this match as well. I’ve always been a Gato Volador fan even though he does the same stuff all the time… he just does it perfectly.:) Babe Rap I’ve only seen a couple of times and he looked really good here. In the first fall he did this INCREDIBLE moonsault off Averno’s shoulders but it wasn’t like Mistico’s where he just jumps up and moonsaults quickly… he actually STOOD on Averno’s shoulders for a good 3 seconds before backflipping. That’s some awesome balance and agility! In the third fall he did this crazy second rope springboard corkscrew plancha on Averno which is a highlight reel dive. Clean finish gets this match bonus points.
Blue Panther vs Super Parka: Why even bother describing it… the usual singles match from this building involving two referees, the commisioner, two seconds who interfere constantly and holding the ropes to pin your opponent. At least the crowd was red hot. These two can do better, in fact I have a match of theirs from Arena Coliseo De Monterrey in 2002 that is much better than this.
