It should probably come as no surprise that El Generico is my current favorite wrestler. His face is plastered all over this place and the name itself is inspired by him.To me, he is the best. Just the absolute best. We should be best friends. My girlfriend picked up on my feeling and offered to take a picture of me with him when we went to Chikara earlier this month. Honestly? I could not have been more excited and this is now my facebook profile pic for the rest of my life.
I'll be 31 next month.
El Generico is really great in the ring. I don't want to get into a whole best in the world thing because I'm not qualified for it, but suffice to say he is up there with the CM Punks and Daniel Bryans of the world. He tells great stories in the ring and I've never seen him have a bad match. His match with The Shard at the aforementioned Chikara show stole the show. Generico had the crowd eating out of his hand and it was the best (and most dangerous) I've seen The Shard look. (Generico did the same thing for the 1-2-3 Kid a year ago and now he's getting a shot at the Campeonatos de Parejas. This is not a coincidence.) He has the coolest movez with the Brainbustahhhhhhhhhh probably being one of the more original and absolutely devastating looking finishers in wrestling today. And for someone who speaks broken English as a second language, Generico has some really entertaining promos. Any way you measure it El Generico is great at wrestling, but none of these things I mentioned is why El Generico is numero uno lucha libre. Read More →
