CMLL Guerreros del Ring on 52MX #259 (11/06/2010)

Arena Coliseo, 10/31/2010

first kick slightly stronger than the second

Bam Bam, Eléctrico, Último Dragoncito vs Pequeño Olímpico, Pequeño Warrior, Pierrothito: This one had Bam Bam instead of Dorada – Electrico is better than Astral, but not enough to make up THAT difference – so it wasn’t going to be quite as good but it was still a nice fun encounter. Ending the match with Warrior giving up to a hold Electrico can’t even figure out how to finish was not so good, but that’s probably more on Electrico.

Máximo, Toscano, Valiente vs Shigeo Okumura, Taichi, Yoshihashi: though it took a fall to get there, Okumura/Taichi/Yoshihashi turned into a nice little team. I think they should stay that way, if only to prevent them from branching out into other matches. Yoshihashi stayed away from doing anything that’d get a dirty look from Virus, so it was a fine night for him. They really built Taichi/Maximo strong, but I can’t imagine them doing it a second time in under six months. (I can imagine Taichi spending a lot of time in Mexico, since it seems like NJPW doesn’t really have much for him.)

Not enough Valiente. Never enough Valiente.

CMLL Guadalajara on Teleformula #20 (11/07/2010)

taped Arena Coliseo Guadalajara, 10/12/2010


I don’t know what awards you vote it. I don’t if you vote in any awards. I just know Felino must win an awards for his outstanding portrayal of “Felino” this year. I’d take 10th place in the WON best announcers awards, if we all feel like coming together to cause trouble.

This show was one of the more fun fan appreciation shows. Minis match here was better than the equivalent minis match over on 52MX (aired a day apart, taped a month apart.) We never give Ultimo Dragoncito enough credit for being really good, because he’s usually standing next to Mascarita Dorada, who’s absolutely insane. Everyone was really good here (though it didn’t feel like there was a lot of Astral) and while it’s not a MOTYC, it’s a minis match worth watching. Main event felt professionally done. Ultimo Guerrero and Rey Bucanero can still do their teamwork spots in their sleep, and it doesn’t really matter if it’s Atlantis or Toscano or you or me in there with them. Still, if the Guerreros are going to be a ‘grrrrr’ team and Peste Negra are going to be a ‘hahaha’ team, I’d rather Bucanero goes with the guys who are more open to him spinning dizzily around after a headscissors. Your mileage may vary.

CMLL, Sexi Star, Puebla

Arena Mexico hype: Warrior vs Electrico, “Atlantis’ return” (he was on last week’s show). There feels like there is nothing going on for this show, and yet they’re supposed to have a major show in 3-5 weeks.

11/12 [non-tournament]: Wataru Inoue, Tomoaki Honma, Sombra & Mascara Dorada b No Limit, Jado & Gedo [Inoue on Gedo]

Today’s the last group stage and the finals. Sombra & Mascara Dorada advance with a win, are done with a loss, and probably won’t draw because it’d be really confusing.

Sexi Star will be in Japan from 11/27 to 11/30, perhaps taking more photos of her eyeball.

LuchaWorld points to Dr. Wagner & El Faraon vs Mil Mascaras & El Solitario and has KrisZ’s news update with this week’s Puebla results.
