CMLL En Busca de un Idolo: 2013-10-26



taped 2013-07-26 @ Arena Mexico

Vangelis is strong, mean

Fuego, Hijo del Fantasma, Negro Casas, Stuka Jr., Valiente vs Misterioso Jr., Sangre Azteca, Tiger, Vangellys, Virus in a cibernetico match: Fast paced and exciting cibernetico. They still found time to bury the losers with the in between promos – “here’s why these guys will never be big stars, now watch them on TV every week!” – and Misterioso continued his character of Village Idiot, but there were also some really good sequences in between. Vangellys and Valiente were more protected in their finishes than it seemed in match summary back in the day, though it’s still odd to use this as a lead up match without them being the final two. I really wanted more Virus/Negro near the end; the 90 seconds they showed wasn’t enough for such a unique match. (I could’ve gone for more Valiente/Virus too, but we’re at least likely to get that.)

Zacarias instant haircut

1) Karma b Psycho Kid
2) Jeque NC Arkángel de la Muerte
Isis kept interfering, so Silueta ran out to stop her and it turned into a tag match.
3) Arkángel de la Muerte & Reina Isis b Jeque & Silueta
Replaced the Isis/Silueta singles match.
4) Titán (CMLL) b Aero Boy, Astro Rey Jr., Latin Dragon, Magnifico
Titan beat Dragon to win. Latin Dragon announced Aero Boy would be going to CZW on 01/11. Titan challenged Aero Boy to a match.
5) Rey Cometa b Impulso [falls count anywhere]
Referee didn’t know the stipulation and started counting out the luchadors anytime they left the ring. Impulso did a crazy dive onto Cometa’s knees and Cometa used a tornillo to win.
6) Dr. Cerebro & Trauma II b Cerebro Negro & Trauma I [Relevos Increíbles]
7) Valiente DQ Negro Navarro
DQ for Navarro accidentally hitting the referee. Valiente was very unhappy with the result
8) Black Terry b Solar I
Terry challenged Solar to a hair vs mask or championship match.
9) Ricky Marvin b Belial
Either this or the Cometa/Impulso match were said to be the best of the show, though people seemed to be raving more about this. Belial battled Marvin, but lost in the end to a Santa Maria. Money throw in after.

Maybe a breakout match for Belial, who doesn’t seem to be well known even on the indy scene but picked a good time to have his best match ever. The people who were there are calling it match of the year level.

No results of the Furor show. There are some video clips.

Video of Mr. Niebla yelling at Dr. Wagner at Arena Naucalpan. Odd to have Mr. Niebla, in his current role of dancing and spitting goofball, be the one confronting Wagner.

Satanico randomly attacked (referee) Brazo de Oro in a way which suggests they’ll have a match soon. Maybe (also) the next Furor show?

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.

Rob has a clip of Aerostar’s crazy dive/fall.

Rodrick Strong and Joey Ryan are coming to DTU on 11/30 and 12/03.

CMLL has their usual promo for Friday’s show. Sagrado’s only into hyping tecnicos!

great match roundup, week of 2013-10-26

Great/Excellent Matches
Somehow, I have nothing.

Shows Watched But Nothing Made The List

CMLL Guerreros del Ring on 52MX: 2013-10-26
CMLL on CadenaTres: 2013-10-26
CMLL on Fox Sports (Mexico): 2013-10-26 – I’m probably wrong about Brazo de Plata vs Rey Escorpion and it’s something you should definitely see regardless of my opinion.
AAA on UTDN: 2013-10-31 – if it makes you sad or angry when I write unkind things about AAA, you probably should skip the two Guerra de Titanes recaps. I liked Tonala, come back then.
