CMLL (FRI) 04/15/2011 Arena Mexico [Estrellas del Ring, Record (1-2, 5-6), MT]
1) Molotov & Sensei b Apocalipsis & Mortiz
2) Diamante, Fuego, Sagrado b Hooligan, Loco Max, Raziel
Hooligan pinned Fuego and took out Diamante with a dive, but Sagrado submitted Raziel for the win.
3) Guerrero Maya Jr. b Metal Blanco [Forjando un Idolo]
Metal Blanco went for the top rope 450 splash, landed on his feet, and fell forward into Maya’s knees. Maya beat him with a devastating cradle DDT. Guerrero Maya starts off with 3 points, Gran Alternativa finalist Metal Blanco has zero. As customary, Shocker (in a suit) was at ringside for both matches.
4) Delta b Dragon Lee [Forjando un Idolo]
Delta press slammed Dragon Lee, then added a top rope moonsault for the win. Delta wins to take the 3 points. Dragon Lee, 0, looked nervous.
5) La Sombra, Rush, Strong Man b Mr. Águila, Olímpico, Rey Bucanero
Sombra did the backflip into the moonsault on Aguila for the win. Tirantes was referee, but could not slow count the tecnicos enough to prevent them from winning.
6) Héctor Garza, Hirooki Goto, Volador Jr. b Atlantis, Dragón Rojo Jr., Último Guerrero
Atlantis & Ultimo Guerrero had Garza & Volador in the Atlantidas, but Goto fouled Ultimo Guerrero and pinned him, and Garza used Atlantis’ distraction to defeat him as well.
A lot of emphasis put on Goto beating Ultimo.
Escorpion vs Angel de Oro is up.
Ras de Lona included Strong Man challenging “the Champion! And you know you are!” Not sure Strong Man knows. Recaps and interviews with all the Forjando un Idolo participants and mentors (Negro Casas wearing his NJPW shirt), plus the women going to Japan. Silueta got extra attention since she’s never been on this show before. She said her mom was a lucahdora, though I didn’t catch her name. Escorpion and Ultimo Guerrero talked about winning the Gran Alternativa and what it meant to Escorpion. Escorpion was a little broken up by it.
Mi Lucha Libre speculates that Relampago might be the surprise in Pachuca tomorrow. Naaaah.
