CMLL Guerreros del Ring on CAN52 #219 (01/30/2010)

taped Arena Coliseo, 01/24/2010


Ángel Azteca Jr., Ángel de Plata, Fabián el Gitano vs Puma King, Skándalo, Tiger Kid – fun match. I have some time, Puma King and Tiger Kid should be Arena Coliseo Tag Team champions (or at least that’s the level where those title should be), Skandalo & Plata is good, and Angel Azteca Jr. is really smooth for his experience, including that moonsault. And Fabian was perfectly acceptable!

Rush, Sagrado, Toscano vs Dragon Rojo Jr., Misterioso II, Sangre Azteca – this was a bit by the numbers, but reminded me to catch up on some Puebla TV because I’m sure I’m missing some Poder Mexica triple teams which are only hinted at here. I guess Toscano winning is better than Rouge?

New Feature: NAME THIS MOVE (after the jump, because it’s a huge GIF.)

US: 02/20

It took a little while to get here, might have gotten held up by UPS, but AAA’s Christmas gift appears to be arrived. A nice big box of continuity.

Gato Eveready beat Tiger Cota in the opener. (That’s not what I meant.)

Back in October, Sexi Star turned on Cinthia Moreno. Cinthia had not forgotten, and did not get along with Sexi Star during the match. Polvo tries to broker a peace, but it did not work and the rudas fell. (Recap actually says Pimpi beat Fabi, which obviously isn’t right. Pimpi picked up the win, that’s for sure.) Just like in October, Sexi jumped Cinthia after the match and the Apaches made the save. Sexi Star needs to make some new friends.

In between matches, Konnan, Zorro, Alex, Chessman, Lider and Nicho hit the ring for Konnan’s usual monologue. Konnan’s New Year’s Resolution is Legion Holds All The Titles. I’m looking forward to the Rain/Zorro mixed tag team challenge! For some reason, Nicho & Lider are reported to be unhappy about this, so maybe they’re not actually in the Legion this week?

Air Force beat Vipers 2.0, amazingly enough. Air Force literally got the jump on the Vipers with some dives as the rudos came to the ring, the Vipers got the edge after Amenisa attacked the tecnicos weak point (foul on Argenis, Piero missed it.) Black Abyss attempted to end Laredo Kid (and my running bit!) with a martinete, but Super Fly broke it up with a dropkick to Laredo, landing him on top for the pin. After all this time, Super Fly finally kicks Laredo Kid, and it’s so they can win a match together! (No turn, don’t get confused.) Vipers beat up Air Force post match.

Back at Heroes Inmoratles, Joe Lider nearly crippled Guapito, and then feuded with Decnnis off an on for the next few months. Decnnis has held on to his grudge. The issues in the women’s match seemed to be more arguing and accidental hitting, but it sounds like the Hermandad threw Decnnis out of the ring and into some furniture very much on purpose. Decnnis survived to help the tecnicos win.

WagnerManiacos dominated the main event, up until Konnan got involved to uneven the numbers. Out for the save came – well, remember around the final Lucha Libre Premier show, where Dr. Wagner seemed to be running his own angle about a possible new member of his group, because they were from the same area, but it seemed like his own angle because it had nothing to do with what was actually going on? Turns out, Dr. Wagner is also psychic: Pimpinela Escarlata hit the ring to make the save. WagnerManiacos, saved, teased walking out on Pimpi and leaving him to die, but came back to return the save. Pimpinela, of the many recent wins, wants in the WagnerManiacos. Will they accept him?

Next taping is Friday. So is Mistico/Volador. Think we should do a chat?
