CMLL Guerreros del Ring on 52MX: 2011-06-18

Thanks for coming.

Blue Panther, Hijo del Fantasma, La Sombra vs Dragón Rojo Jr., Shinsuke Nakamura, Volador Jr.: Good fun match. Nothing extraordinary but full effort.


submission wizardy!

Último Guerrero vs Rush for the CMLL World Heavyweight Championship: First fall was actually better than expected, though it did expose Rush at times. Downhill from there. Second fall and third fall were usual UG cliches, with way too much time killing between big moves. Didn’t have much of a flow, didn’t get much into it. I was hoping that if this was a failure, it’d be an interesting one, but it really was just kind of boringly predictable failure. Opener was better. Goto match was leagues better.

By the way, someone needs to explain to Arena Mexico that the counter culture reaction to Rush now is to cheer him.
