    i hope it's not a commercial week for CMLL.
    Mr. Backlund continued wrestling under the new gimmick of an out of touch, yet highly dangerous, maniac out to teach the new generation a lesson.[3] He often appeared in business suits, had a hyperactive personality, and used (or, often, misused) large words to sound important. He also demanded that he be addressed as "Mr. Backlund". He would only sign autographs for wrestling fans if they could recite the names of all of the US Presidents in chronological order

    One of my favorite matches in the G1 Tourney was Yano vs Tanahashi. Yeah, you heard me, YANO TORU vs Tanahashi.


    Why? Because it showed that RVD helped put Yano over, something I've always wanted to see. The crowd was absolutely on his side, and Tanahashi adapted and heeled it up.

    He even LOST to Toru. Best match I've seen from Yano in a while.


    I was pretty pissy about Tanahashi vs Goto due to Tanahashi going practically super Cena after Goto hit a great series of moves (including a new finisher), but this pretty much redeemed him.

    Watching some All Japan right now.


    Specifically, the ES vs BJW series.


    Daisuke Sekimoto still freaks me out. I mean, yeah there are other really buff guys in Puro (like Strongman), but he still freaks me out.

    Just finished CMLL a few minutes ago. 1 hour show this week (as opposed to the shows that are supposed to be 2 hours long, and have 1 hour of commercials.)

    El Felino vs. Blue Panther (match relampago) - way better than I was expecting, especially when the combined age of the two wrestlers is just shy of 100 years. I'm not saying it was go-out-of-your-way good, but a pleasant surprise. A lot of pinning combinations and counters, and Panther had a nice suicide dive. Better than Sting vs. Ric Flair is going to be.

    Hector Garza/Angel de Oro/Shocker vs. Rey Bucanero/Terrible/El Tejano, Jr. - at least Oro was working hard! I know Shocker was out forever with a knee injury, but he's got to find a cardio machine and hit it. Garza didn't do much until the third fall (literally not even getting out of his warm-up gear until then, despite eating the first pinfall), but he's champ, so I guess he's going to milk that. Okay action all the way through, but that's mostly because of the rudos and Oro.

    Decent show, despite there not being any of my usual favorites present.

    Got to watch Mexican wrestling today. Don't speak the language, don't know the people, still understood what was going on. Does that mean I watch too much wrestling?

    funny i just watched tanahashi/yano from 2010 and thought the same thing. it wasn't great but it was very good and i usually can't stay interested in a yano match.

    sekimoto is good. i think he's the ZERO1 champ right now. if you ever get the chance and haven't already watch sekimoto & yoshihito sasaki tag stuff. they were a great power team.

    In my watching of mexican wrestling, the weirdest thing has been guys submitting to moves they never would in the american pro wrestling.
    Which is kind of neat actually, since most of that stuff hurts like a bitch when actually used.

    yeah, that's part of what i meant about lucha not being as finisher-centric as american. imo not knowing that the match can't end until 1 move or another happens adds a lot to the matches.

    WWE can end without a finisher!
    Sometimes a guy gets distracted and it ends with a small package.
    I can't think of any other examples.

    Mainly, I didn't want to overhype it and have people be underwhelmed. But it was really good. I'd only seen Panther in six-man tags before, and I'm not sure I'd ever seen Felino before. Quality stuff, though!

    Sometimes people get hit in the head with the championship belt, too.

    Question: Are these G1 days all filmed on consecutive days or are they spaced apart like a weekly program? Just curious.
