taped 2013-12-03 @ Arena Mexico
Metálico & Molotov vs Disturbio & Guerrero Negro Jr.: below average opener, when it really should’ve been better than usual given who were involved. Metálico and Disturbio didn’t mesh well and the rudos abandoned any pretense of a competition to make the comeback a little easier. Crowd rightfully didn’t care about any of this.
Pequeño Halcón, Shockercito, Último Dragoncito vs Demus 3:16, Mercurio, Pierrothito: OK minis match. Demus seems athletically back where he was before his injury, but didn’t get a tremendous a lot to do in this match. Halcón was moving too fast for his own good. Rest of the match was solid but unmemorable so.
Dark Angel, Estrellita, Marcela vs Amapola, Dalys, Princesa Blanca: Not the best executed match, but an pleasantly ambitious one. Dalys has all sorts of new ideas now that she’s a ruda – she and her sister in law appear to have worked a lot on double teams – and this was one where they were trying a lot of things not all of it actually worked but the effort was strong. It was a more interesting women’s match than most from the last few months, at least.
Blue Panther, La Máscara, Thunder vs Terrible, Tiger, Vangellys: Thunder crossed over into hilariously bad when he botched the one spot he had in the first two falls. The other five guys were fine. Blue Panther versus Tiger would be a good feud for Tiger even if he lost, but it would require CMLL doing non-title midcard feuds. Mascara beat the heavyweight champion, doesn’t really matter.
Atlantis, Máximo, Shocker vs Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas, Rey Escorpión: quick but more intense match than last week, with a lot of talking back and forth after the match. Rey Escorpion and Máximo seem to be two of the better talkers in the promotion, at Máximo was creative here. Chiquito would definitely be sticking with Escorpion in other places, will be interesting to see if it gets over here. The non-Maximo/Escorpion segments dragged, but they did a better job of building interest to the hair match.
