IWRG TV 3/2/06
Written By Robert Bihari
Fucking technology! In the old days if you got a show that was taped when the feed was bad, you could still watch the action alright but once in a while it would get grainy. BUT YOU COULD STILL SEE EVERYTHING! Now when something is taped with digital interference, it’s impossible to watch! I tried my hardest but it got so annoying that I quit after the second match and just FF’ed through everything else. Gonna have to get this on DVD somehow. Considering how much I buy off Fredo I’m sure he won’t mind if I $hill a bit and just ask anyone who picked this show up to send me a message and we can talk trade.:) I also never got the 3/9 show sent to me for some reason so I’d love to see that as well obviously. Quick thoughts from what I did see of this show…
(Fredo’s NOTE: Rob got this from a source he had for IWRG tapes back then, not from me….Back to your regular scheduled review…)
Gran Cuchillo/Halcon Salvaje vs El Macho II/Zaiyer: Crappy. Salvaje and Macho II are both old guys who have no business taking up space on IWRG shows unless they are helping the rookies along. Salvaje blows more spots than the rookies though and Macho never once worked with Cuchillo here. Garbage.
Star Boy/Marco Rivera/Panterita vs Black Jaguar/Black Terry/Fantasma De La Opera: Really hard to watch with the digital problems. Did see some nice flying by Panterita and what looked to be an *INSANE* spot in the third fall as he did an ASAI MOONSAULT INTO THE SECOND ROW TAKING FANTASMA DE LA OPERA WITH HIM!!! He better not ever disapear from IWRG TV!
Pantera/Sicodelico Jr./Kung Fu Jr. vs Cyborg/Protector/Xibalba: Unwatchable due to my recording.
Heavy Metal/Mike Segura/El Hijo Del Solitario vs Silver King/El Veneno/Cerebro Negro: Also unwatchable due to my recording. However it cleared up a bit at the end and I saw a really neat finish as Metal went to throw Segura onto Veneno who was outside the ring but Veneno ran away and Segura crashed hard! Metal went to check on him but as he did, Cerebro Negro nailed him with a tope suicida! Genius sequence of spots. I think the rudos cheated to win.
FF’ed through two LuchaMania shows. One had clips of a CMLL show in Cuautitlan and the above IWRG taping. The other had clips of an outdoor IWRG show, the Arena Aficion De Pachuca main event with Wagner/Silver King vs MA2K/U2K and the 3/9 IWRG taping. Nothing else worth mentioning.
I noticed the start of the next IWRG show I have(no digital interference!!!) has a tag match featuring Kid Tiger/Ultra Mega vs Black Jaguar/Zaiyer. 3 out of those 4 guys use the same freakin’ gimmick! Damn cats! Meanwhile this is Ultra Mega’s unmasked TV debut. Welcome back El Millonario.:)
