taped 2014-02-09 @ Centro Civico Nueva Aragon, Ecatepec, Estado de México
Aerostar, Faby Apache, Jennifer Blake vs El Apache, Sexy Star, Taya Valkyrie: a good mixed quick trios match. The dives were the roughest parts; Taya’s moonsault usually goes better than it did here, and I’m not totally sure even what move Ludxor was going for in the post match triple dive. Taya and Sexy had a bunch of double team moves to get in and Aerostar and Gran Apache work well together.
Crazy Boy & Joe Lider vs Juventud Guerrera & Steve Pain: Another Mexican Powers weapons filled slow unathletic brawl that got the crowd chanting for lucha extrema but didn’t do much for me. This would seem to be a feud ending outcome but storylines aren’t going to advance in Ecatepec. Camera work was not so great, missing the hamburger power up spot and getting an unimpressive shot of Pain going thru the fire table – they showed it from an angle that hide the fire, and never went to a replay (so maybe the fire went out quick and they were actually doing a good job of hiding it? Hmm.) I was much more interested in Niño and Crazy Boy’s attempts to hide the lighter fluid bottle than the end game. Don’t know about pouring thumbtacks in the ring, setting a table on fire, and then bringing in kids in the ring to dance.
Fénix, La Parka, Monsther Clown, Psycho Clown vs Jeff Jarrett, Parka Negra, Texano, Zorro: The most about of rudo bumbling you’ll see in a match. I kept waiting for the comedy to stop and the rudos to take over the match, and it never really happened. The rudos just kept on hitting each other and dong comedy and then suddenly there was chair shot and it was almost over. It was an odd match to for how serious they apparently want us to take this issue. Crowd not reacting at all for Jarrett’s music was amusing, and so they did everything they could to get him a reaction after the fact. Unsure why Hijo del Tirantes was doing normal counts when Texano was pinning Psycho, despite doing a slow count when Psycho was pinning Texano for the finish. Crowd was way behind Psycho. I guess they’re going to do the drink spot on every show ever. There were about 30 things going on at the end, so I don’t think it even registered. Psycho beating Texano after the guitar shot was also probably supposed to be a big deal, but they completely neutralized it after the fact. Konnan’s the only guy who gets to talk.
