CMLL #924 (05/16)

taped 05/15.

I’ve been working on TV listings lately, and it’s completely apparent how those show numbers are so hilariously off. They’re also still the best I’ve got.

I got this show via download and don’t have DM links for it. But you can easily track it down on YouTube; it’s just not easily broken down into matches for me to link to.

Amapola vs Marcela – about as good a lightning match you’re going to get, because they were all about working the clock as a countdown timer and working in as much as they could before it hit zero. The only nitpicky bit was Amapola has been snapping off her finisher a lot cleaner and quicker than she got it here, and so this finish was missing some of the impact of other recent ones. But it was really good, and it made me wonder why I haven’t recapped Marcela/Rosa yet. (It’s in the pipeline now.)

La Mascara, La Sombra, Sagrado vs Ephesto, Terrible, Texano Jr. – an okay exhibition to set up the angle. Which was funny, because as much as they tried to make it seem like an unplanned incident, everyone around was reacting to it like a typical fight.

Dos Caras Jr. ©, Mephisto, Averno vs Shocker, Mistico ©, Blue Panther – Hector Garza is the smartest man in the world for extracting himself from this Dos Caras feud. And it’s going to be a legitimate shame if Shocker’s first hair loss comes to Dos Jr. Dos as a rudo has essentially become a more reliable but less interesting rudo Lizmark Jr.. Someone’s got do something to fix this, right?
