Lucha Libre Elite Lucha Azteca 6/5/16 Review

Air Date: 6/5/16

Rush vs. Negro Casas (Liga Elite 2016)

It’s amazing that at over 50 years old Casas is still able to wrestle such a hard style. He got in a few hope spots here, but this was largely a complete destruction of Casas by Rush in what was a really great sprint of a brawl. The match went maybe five minutes and not a single moment felt wasted, truly fantastic. Rush pins Casas with the corner dropkick *** ½

Mascara Dorada, Mistico (II), and Caristico vs. Ultimo Guerrero, Euforia, and Rey Esorpion

The heels go straight after the faces to start the first fall off hot. They eventually won the fall by completeing dominating Mistico his cohorts. The masked men take back control in the second fall, to the surprise of no one, with some crazy high flying from Mistico and Dorada. We get a lot of really cool high flying in the third fall as well, with Caristico getting more involved than he had been in the previous two falls. As far as trios matches, this was one of my favourite in Elite so far with three pretty exciting falls as opposed to a boring second. Caristico submits Esorpion with La Mistica *** ¼

LA Park vs. Atlantis (Liga Elite 2016)

This was a little rough around the edges, but was a pretty fun match between two old men just beating the crap out of each other. I feel like Atlantis was working harder here than he has in previous Liga Elite matches, including hitting a really cool looking old man tope. Park was far better than in his previous trios outing as well, I especially enjoyed his few heel moves such as knocking the referee into the ropes to cause Atlantis to fall off. That’s simple character stuff that I can appreciate. Park submits Atlantis *** ¼

Overall: 6.0

Another easy to watch show from this company. Nothing was really blow away great in my opinion, but the two Liga Elite matches are for sure worth seeking out.
