1. 7. I think card placement and build matter though. Don't open a show with Hackenschmidt vs Saint.
2. 6. The problem with lucha is that you either have the best lucha libre match ever or someone blows one too many spots, or telegraphs their move a bit too slowly, or someone botches a roll up or grapple, and your suspension of disbelief goes out the window. I'm not always happy when I hear the words lucha libre unless I know the two combatants have wrestled before and have a good idea of one another's styles. It's just such a conditional style that could be thrown off by the tiniest cog blowing in the mechanics.
3. 4. That's your standard issue mainstream Memphis style match. It can be good, and it has fewer margins for error than the lucha libre, but it can also grow tedious fast. Case in point: I want to support the new Billy Corgan NWA, but I can't sit through another Tim Storm match because they're too reliant on the build and booking,and the matches themselves are OK at best.
4. 10. PWG has broken me with hoss battles. I'll watch any Jeff Cobb or Keith Lee match that floats my way because they're both phenomenal specimen of athleticism. Cobb's a stocky little Olympic mutant who shouldn't be able to lift the guys he can, or do a standing shooting star, and Keith Lee can wrestle any way you want to wrestle. That's insanely entertaining and fascinating to me. I've always been big fans of the Brody's and Bam Bam's and the Vader's of wrestling, and with guys like Luke Harper, Cesaro, Keith Lee, Elgin, and Keith Lee tearing it up, the bar keeps getting set higher and higher for what a big guy can do. Even Braun's doing kip ups and combat rolls now. It's crazy to me.
5. 6. I always enjoyed a good Jackie Chan flick, but it's never been something I ever set out to watch. If it's on TV, I'll watch Rumble in the Bronx, sure.
6. 4 I haven't seen the example, but I can dig on a straight up martial arts film. Again, I wont seek it out, but if I run across one on TV, I might stick around for a bit if nothing's on.
7. 8. I enjoyed early UFC and Pride as well. I love seeing more than just the streamlined Miletich fighting system that's taken over MMA in the past 7 or 8 years. I want kick boxing vs jujitsu , muay tai vs boxers, etc etc. It just makes for a more diverse card.
8. 3. Again, I'm not going out of my way or investigating a martial arts film too deeply.
9. 8. A cautious 8. In wrestling, style mixing can be fun and interesting, but it can also be dangerous if the two wrestlers don't understand how to wrestle one another's discipline.
