This show! This was a show.
I’ve been bored by this program recently, and the matches have generally been inoffensively bland. This one sure broke the mold. You can tell there’s no effort at all put into picking the matches to air on this show, because there’s no way this opener should’ve made TV. At least it was short, and the main got plenty of time.
Sombra/Aguila was a slow starter that got fun by the end. Aguila acted like a man who had actually seen a CMLL singles match before, knew the spots the tecnico did in every single match, and was going to do his best to put a stop to it. Plus, he was dressed like a punk stegosaurus, and you can’t go wrong with that. This was not a MOTYC, but if CMLL could promise me one of these matches every month somewhere along the CMLL TV network, I would be a lot more satisfied with CMLL.
Sombra didn’t start using the Brillante Driver until after he got back from Japan, right? Can we send everyone, one by one, over to Japan so they all get set finishers too?
