Espanto is disturbing

Fresbee & Magnus vs Espanto Jr. & Herodes Jr.: Mr. Niebla appears to have been a bad influence on Espanto! Match was okay, which means good for the openers around here. Magnus sure has fallen a long way to be teaming with Freesbe.

Goya Kong, Lady Afrodita, Luna Mágica vs Amapola, Mima Shimoda, Tiffany: This match was so tedious. I feel like I must get something out of it so it’s not the worst way I’ve ever used my time, but it’s very tough. Afrodita being the worst of the three técnicas must be it. Afrodita seems strongly disliked by the rudas, and not on a tecnica vs ruda way. I kind of want to see them put Isis in the match, because I must know how bad she must be if these three are allowed to have matches and she’s not.



Hombre Bala Jr., Pegasso, Sagrado vs Cancerbero, Hijo del Signo, Virus: Hombre Bala got a spotlight match with a good rudo in Cancerbero, and had a bad outing. He just looked rougher than usual in a few different spots. Signo is not as good a partner as Raziel, so not so much the team work you’d want out of a Cancerbero match but everyone else was fine.



Delta, Fuego, Guerrero Maya Jr. vs Boby Zavala, Disturbio, Vangellys: An okay match for one with a couple guys who aren’t used to the rest of this mix. Bobby was fine, but Disturbio didn’t seem as aggressive as he usually is in segundas. Delta also seemed off. They still had an okay match, but probably not as good as one as they could if (until?) Zavala and Disturbio are more regularly facing these guys. As usual with CMLL replacements, they were treated as if on the same level with everyone else.


more monkey flips

Diamante Azul, Mistico, Thunder vs Rey Bucanero, Terrible, Tiger: You can’t put Thunder and Azul in the same match. No rudo team is good enough to handle them both. Thunder disappeared for a while in the second fall, requiring the rudos to run around to cover up for him. Azul looked competent by comparison. Add on Místico, and it’s a credit to TRT to get as much out of this match as they did.
