NEWS: Looks like Rey and Bucky are working the 1/19 Wrestle-1 PPV in Japan, so they may miss a show or two. It’s ok, because DICK TOGO~! is working some dates for CMLL
Final CMLL 1/12 thoughts:
Shocker rallies the Guapo troops. He picks Ricky Marvin for something, but says something to appease everyone else.
Shocker/Mr. Niebla/Brazo De Plata vs Dr. Wagner/Black Tiger/Mascara Ano 2000. We skip the primera caida (won by Shocker’s team) for some unfathomable reason. We start with a Mascara vs. Shocker, and I ponder if we’ll have to sneak MA2K onto the next 25. He has looked good lately, although that’s entirely due to who he’s wrestling. Things turn into a rudo beatdown awfully quickly. Niebla gets his mask ripped to shreds and the bad guys are declared the winners at some arbitrary point. Wagner rips off Niebla’s mask entirely after the fall. More of the same in la tercera caida until Niebla runs in from the back with a new mask and cleans house. Niebla goes after Wagner as his partners take care of Tiger and Mascara. Wagner’s mask gets ripped but the good doctor rips off Niebla’s mask AGAIN and reverses a victory roll for the pin.
MORE BLOOPERS. Volador flubs a line. Pierroth nearly gouges an eye out removing his sunglasses. One of Rayo’s ring girls pops out of top. [Petrie]This is the GREATEST CMLL EVER[/Petrie]. They also show that announcer Casas punched out. Drs. Wagner and X screw up. So does Markus and Los Capos. Someone walks in front of a GdI segment. This was interspersed with clips from Mexican TV shows.
