taped 2014-10-28 @ Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
Leo & Sky Kid vs Artillero & Súper Comando: [below average] there weren’t blown spots, but it was for a lack of spots. This match never got out of first great with the rudo especially giving far less effort than usual. The técnicos are far from good enough to make it work itself. I have no idea why this aired or why this got so much time.
Estrellita, Goya Kong, Marcela vs Amapola, La Comandante, Tiffany: [OK] This didn’t feel as mailed in and the finish looked nice, but not a lot was separated this from the last match. It was a lot of every Goya and Estrellita match; maybe that’s a (watching) too much TV problem, but it’s also not like they’re mixing it up much. Tiffany continues to use a haipull move as her finisher, because who cares about the rules here.
Black Panther, Blue Panther, Cachorro vs Kamaitachi, Okumura, Tiger: [GOOD] This was a short and not as fast paced version of the Panther/Casas matches, which meant it was leaps and bonds better than anyone else. Cachorro got the big pin at the end, but Black Panther got more time in the match. His offense is still mostly clotheslines but his clotheslines do look like they work. In about 30 seconds of work, Kamataichi sold deathly fear of Blue Panther having his arm as good as anyone has ever done. That man/squirrel knee he was in a lot of trouble and Okumura making it worse with the illegal tags. And then the other partners double teamed Kamaitachi too because the rudos were unable to just make a tag. Somehow he started the second fall too! Poor Kamaitachi. In the alternate universe where CMLL does things with it’s second and third match guys, there’s quite the tag division – Puma/Tiger, Panthers, Soberano/Star, Okumura/Kamataichi, Halcón/Bala, possibly some rudo teams. Better to have the belts frozen cold with Casas/Shocker (and Maya/Delta being done defending for the year too, I suppose.)
