Lucha Libre USA Episode #2

Random thoughts about the show...

- Strange seeing Octagoncito and Misteriocito. They're both very old school minis in the sense they are actual midgets so they work differently that the current crop of minis who just seem to be smaller regular sized guys and thus work like the bigger guys which is sometimes a flaw.

- Why use an Octagoncito and Misteriocito? You don't have an Octagon or Misterioso. Same deal with Mascarita Dorada and Pequeno Halloween. It's not like any of them really have name appeal outside of Dorada and even Dorada puts on a chicken outfit when he works Lucha VaVoom. Should have created a new set of mini gimmicks for this show. Not like MTV can't afford to pay for new otufits.

- Opening mixed tag was short and effective. I liked it.

- Nova/Manson vs Lizmark Jr./Sydistiko was too short but filled it's purpose. I would totally have had Manson be a rudo but what do I know? From what they tell me on DVDVR - TJ Perkins is a man who brings in fans!

- Very opposed to using Rellik as one of the top heels but I expected it in a promotion run by Corleone. Still... if this ever starts taking off I think Marco has to re-think which of his friends he chooses to use. BTW, didn't Rellik say he had tons of offers to wrestle elsewhere when he left AAA and put up this huge rant? Where the fuck has he been for the past 2 years?

- Oh my god John Walters in the main event. Kill me now. Why Magno and not Incognito? He's the better of the two!

Enjoyed this show less than the first show but there was nothing here that would turn me off to watching more episodes. Unless of course they're actually building to a La Parkita vs black chick singles match.

Isn't Incognito under a WWE developmental deal? If he wasn't he'd definitely be used here.

It doesn't ring a bell but his name hasn't popped up anywhere lately so you're probably right. Shame... he had potential.
