taped 2015-01-06 @ Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
Fuego, Stuka Jr., Super Porky vs Hombre sin Nombre, Kráneo, Olímpico: [ok] Super Porky match with everyone else guesting (and his partners blowing it.) Porky seemed out of gas even before the match started. He was moving very slow the whole match, even compared to usual. I was surprised he still did the apron plancha. Tirantes putting over the Hooligan Crash (not by that name) was amusing for a number of reasons., Tirantes also said Hombre sin Nombre needs to get on getting a name, and I wonder if that will happen before or after Terrible defends his title.
Mephisto vs Titán, Máscara Dorada, Ephesto, Dragon Lee, Mr. Águila, Rey Cometa, Pierroth, Tritón, Demonio Maya in a cibernetico match: [good] Really weird that they’d put Mephisto the big win two weeks in a row, because that means the last four minutes of this match were pretty much the same as the last few minutes of last week’s match, only with a different dive. (Same caverneria after it, same finish.) It’d make sense if they were building Mephisto up for something specifically in Guadalajara, but that’s giving them too much credit. This is a bunch on him since it was the same fans who saw that match, but it didn’t seem like he cared all that much. This was good cibernetico, not an exceptional but all you’d want for this sort of match. Dragon Lee & Triton got in spots while they were around, Mascara Dorada & Titan did a lot and the rudos were fine. Mr. Aguila was better than usual and an asset to the rudo side. Demonio Maya wasn’t a world beater but he looked a lot better than many of the locals who make TV here. Pierroth actually took a dive correctly, but looked horrible later on and they may have edited out a botch on his elimination. Pierroth and Dragon Lee did end up doing spots, which looked weird but more in the Pierroth trying to wrestle weird than giving anything away bout the relationship. The DDQ spot was random and came out of nowhere, totally unearned.
Atlantis, Máximo, Valiente vs Bárbaro Cavernario, Felino, Mr. Niebla:[OK] Pretty much all Máximo & Peste Negra comedy. I was really looking forward to it being over; it couldn’t follow the previous match and I’ve watched too many hours of lucha libre today at this point to really get into it. Maximo’s dive off the apron might have been the only one in this match. They kept it simple and focused on Niebla/Maximo (the Atlantis feud not existing here.)
