CMLL Guerreros del Ring on 52MX: 2011-06-04

taped 2011-05-29 @ Arena Coliseo


Gen11 fail

Guerrero Maya Jr., Hombre Bala Jr., Super Halcon Jr. vs Hooligan, Rayo Tapatío I, Rayo Tapatío II: Blurb: fun match in the feud, nice bit of reversal fortune in the first. Super Halcón is not ready but it’s not due to a lack of effort (maybe too much effort?)

Blue Panther (1960-2011)

El Alebrije, Psicosis, Shinsuke Nakamura vs Blue Panther, Strong Man, Super Porky: Blurb: Nakamura is really an odd fit here; the fans expect flashy offense from Japanese guys, and Nakamura is more of a kicker. There’s no one of any note who works like that right now in Mexico for announcers to sell him as, and I don’t know how well he’s going to get over. The best thing they can do for him is stuff like this, where Panther sold the running kneelift to the face as if had nearly been murdered; it came off as a big deal move. They just need to do it on the main shows next…
