Synopsis:

Cavernario failed in his first attempt to capture Titan’s Mexican National Welterweight title in July 2014. It was a title shot he earned by virtue of winning the 2014 En Busca de un Idolo tournament. That was a good match but both wrestlers upped their game for this re-match, which is among the best lucha matches of 2015. Titan and Cavernario put their own stamp on the usual title match format. The result is a match that plays to both wrestler’s strengths while not straying too far from what makes the lucha title match style such a time tested format.

Synopsis:

During his long reign as CMLL Super Lightweight champion from 2011 through early 2015, Virus was good for one or two excellent technically wrestled title matches per year. Although actually contested for Titan’s Mexican National Welterweight championship, this match is Virus’ 2014 title match masterpiece. The match has all of the elements of a traditional lucha title match with excellent mat work in the early falls, a strong tecnico comeback in the second fall, and a near fall heavy finale that builds to a dramatic conclusion. Everyone agrees that this is another example of why Virus is such a great wrestler. Titan’s contributions to the match seem to vary more among viewers, but regardless, this is a great match that is arguably the best singles match out of Mexico in 2014.

Synopsis:

The calendar ran out on CMLL in 2013. A promotion that already runs roughly a gazillion tournaments each year decided it would like to cram one tournament int0 2013, so they started the Leyenda de Plata tournament on December 20th with the second qualifying cibernetico a week later which pushed the tournament final between Negro Casas and Titan into the 2014 calendar year. A spirited and crisp match built around no less than a half a dozen interesting spots/sequences. A great match to watch for those who doubt the greatness Negro Casas’ late career work. All of his offense and bumps are on point in this match, he moves better than a lot of wrestlers ten years his junior, and brings a ton of energy to the bout. The match also serves as a reminder of how polished and solid of an all-around wrestler that Titan can be when afforded an opportunity.
