CMLL (SUN) 06/16/2013 Arena Mexico
1) Metatrón & Sensei b Akuma & Zayco
Tecnicos took 1/3.
2) Molotov, Soberano Jr., Stigma b Apocalipsis, Espanto Jr., Inquisidor
Tecnicos took 2/3, Molotov pinning Inquisidor (though it sure looked like a double pin to me.)
3) Dalis la Caribeña b Dark Angel, Lluvia, Estrellita, Goya Kong, Tiffany, Princesa Sugheit, La Comandante, Zeuxis, La Seductora [cibernetico]
Dark Angel replaces Silueta. Eliminations went Zeuxis (Dalis), Lluvia (Seductora), Comandante (Goya), Estrellita (Tiffany), Seductora (Dark Angel), Goya Kong (Tiffany & Princesa Sugheit), Tiffany (Dark Angel), Dark Angel (Sugheit), Sugheit (Dallys casita.)
4) La Máscara, Rush, Titán b Kráneo, Mr. Águila, Psicosis
Rush destroyed Mr. Aguila with dropkicks in this match, then dropped him on his head with a Rush Driver. Rush put his foot on Aguila’s face while yelling him at for an apuesta match.
5) Máscara Dorada, Mistico, Valiente b Euforia, Niebla Roja, Último Guerrero [CMLL TRIOS, final]
Tecnicos took 1/3 in a good match, with a La Mistica on Ultimo Guerrero to win it. Estetas become 25th champion.
First three matches were not good. Rush started destroying people in the semimain and things turned around. Main event was a lot of fun. It was very much an Ultimo Guerrero match, but the tecnicos got to look exactly like the high flying tecnico trio they were set up to be. It probably deserved to be at a higher exposure occasion (though the crowd appeared to be good) and it’s not helpful to lump all the big tecnico triumphs together because it hurts their impact, but it’s made for some fun matches.
Running list of people who appear to be in the cage match CMLL hasn’t announced: Rush, Mr. Aguila, Negro Casas, Rey Escorpion, Blue Panther, Averno, Brazo de Plata, Shocker and Maximo. Terrible fits based off the En Busca de un Idolo incident on Friday, which would make an even 10.
Women’s match had some frustrating results, even beyond the finish. Crowd was mixed at best about Dallys winning, unlike when Goya won a similar match. (They were also very unhappy when Goya lost.) Never try a casita on a Casas family members unless they’ve tried one first. It works if you escape and put on your own, but if you try it before they do, you’re doomed.
This seems minor to complain about compared to other streaming issues, but Terra’s had a problem with their feeds lagging behind each other for weeks now and really needs to fix it already. It doesn’t do their product any good for different parts of the show airing at different times, especially when someone of those feeds don’t finish before the show ends. Maybe now that they’re “only doing two shows a week”, they can find some time to resolve this problem.
