CMLL on 2015-09-11 

best moment of La Mascara’s life

Recapped: 09/11/201

What happened? Sombra cheated to beat Atlantis, leaving him humiliated and unmasked to end the night. Thunder & Ultimo Guerrero continued their feud. Super Parka returned to the Arena Mexico ring, teaming with his son. Rush spoiled their night by sneaking in a foul on Volador. Maximo ultimately replaced Dr. Wagner Jr. (I didn’t catch a single mention of Wagner or LA Park on commentary, though Maximo mocked the Parka strut a couple of times.)

What was good? Pretty much everything. This was the strongest show in a while, with the first fall matches all good and a great match mixed in. (I seemed to disagree on which one was the great one though.) The top two matches were more angle driven matches and lacked the dynamism they had with LA Park & Dr. Wagner the previous two weeks, though some indy could get some mileage out of a singles Rush/Super Parka match. The undercard generally felt like guys who aren’t on the Anniversary show having those matches tonight instead.

Where can I watch this? The main event is now up on ClaroSports’ website. Some of the matches will air on Lucha Azteca on 09/26. I’ll probably have these matches up on one of my channels tomorrow.

Winner: tecnicos (2-1)
Match Time: 13:49
Notes: Magnus was dropkicked to the floor to be counted out in the first. Super Comando took a Magnus Spanish Fly in the third for the countout

Magnus es loco

Review: [good] A lot more going on in an opener in usual, with Super Comando & Artillero willing to do stuff with Magnus in there, and Magnus being crazy. Super Comando might be crazier for trusting him with the Spanish Fly. I think the consensus was a higher grade than I have; the first fall was really slow for me and I was pulled away a little bit during the second.

Match 2: Eléctrico, Shockercito, Último Dragoncito vs Demus 3:16, Pequeño Violencia, Pierrothito

Winner: rudos (2-1)
Match Time: 14:32
Notes: Demus became Puerto Rician, at least for the night.

Demus no Hombre Bala

Review: [good] lots of fun. Demus playing bully to Shockercito works great just about every time they do it. They were able to pull off all the big spots in the third fall, and the crowd was completely thrilled when Shockercito got the armbar win in the second. Electrico broke out some new stuff and Dragoncito & Pierrothito looked solid as usual. Pequeno Violencia’s third fall win was lame, but he wasn’t a problem most of the way. Another good minis match in a run of them.

now he’s just showing off

Rey Cometa slingshot tornillo

Review: [good] fast paced exciting match with the usual Blue Panther quirks of surprising outcomes. Everyone had their moment and contributed to make other people look good, and the match just kept going at that high rate of sped for a while The third fall was the big showcase, but there was good stuff to be found in all three falls. Panther’s two topes (and wild clapping) were fun, and the two sequences of him versus Virus really put it over the top, but all the action was very good.

Match 4: La Máscara, Stuka Jr., Titán vs Cavernario, Hechicero, Negro Casas

Winner: rudos (2-1)
Match Time: 11:31

Cavernario & Titan

Review: [great] strong mix of luchadors for another fun match. It wasn’t just moves, though there were a lot of moves, but they mixed in some good comedy with Monito and Zacarias as well. The first fall finish, with everyone splashing poor Hechicero, was good times. Cavernario and Titan worked great against each other (and hopefully will have that title rematch soon), but they also had a wacky exchange with Cavernario’s worm and Titanics. There were lots of La Mascara versus Negro Casas, but it wasn’t a determinant – Mascara has a great well timed superkick in the third fall in particular. (He needs to work on how to take the post charge before he breaks his shoulder.) I liked this match better than the last, which might put me in the minority.

Match 5Super Parka, Valiente, Volador Jr. vs Maximo, Marco Corleone, Rush
Arena México, 09/11/2015

    • Marco Corleone Aero Italia Volador Jr. (1:45)
  2. Team Volador
    • Super Parka pin Maximo (2:34)
    • Valiente inside cradle Valiente (2:37)
  3. Bufete del Amor
    • Rush foul Volador Jr. (4:37)

Winner: Bufete del Amor
Match Time: 8:59
Notes: Maximo replaced Dr. Wagner. As usual, Maximo didn’t agree with the rough tactics his partners were using. Rush gave Super Parka a middle finger before his comeback in the second fall, and those two feuded most of the match. Marco accidentally hit Maximo with the Aero Italia in the second fall, leading to the tecnicos taking the fall. Rush shoved Volador into referee Babe Richard at the end of the match, distracting him from the foul kick.

accept no imitations

Review: [ok] not quite at the level of the other matches but still better than most usual matches. This worked as a chaotic brawl, though also with the story that Super Parka wasn’t as much a match for Rush as LA Park. Marco works well as a rudo in these matches and Maximo’s Park trolling was great. Volador sold big and it was surprising to see him take the loss.

Match 6Atlantis, Euforia, Último Guerrero vs La Sombra, Rey Escorpión, Thunder in a relevos increíbles match
Arena México, 09/11/2015

flying Guerreros
  1. Team Sombra
    • Shadow Driver on Atlantis (2:56)
  2. Team Sombra
    • DQ Atlantis [Sombra mask throw] (5:01)

Winner: Team Sombra (2-0)
Match Time: 7:57
Notes: Sombra ran into Tirantes to distract him, and tossed his mask to Atlantis for the DQ. Only, Sombra threw his mask so hard that it went out of the ring, and Atlantis nonsensically left the ring to pick up the mask, framing himself for the DQ. Atlantis and Sombra went back and forth after the match, with Atlantis challenging Sombra to fight right now. Sombra came back, but came back with Rush, and they both laid out Atlantis. They took his mask to end the show.

Sombra escapes Atlantida, lands the Shadow Bomb

Review: [ok] shortest and least of the matches, but this one existed just to build up Sombra/Atlantis and Thunder/UG. The one that’s happening next week looked a lot more promising (though I’m not sure how they’re going to get 20 minutes out of it.) Thunder is no better than we when last saw him. Seems very notable Atlantis has not beaten Sombra with an Atlantida in any of the lead up matches so far and has ended up laid out almost every time.

Atlantis too much of a nice man for this cruel world

  1. As you’ve pointed out, I’ve also noticed that Atlantis hasn’t won with an Atlantida and has been humiliated in all their matches.For these reasons, I’m going with Atlantis winning the mask match. If la Sombra wins, I’d say they did a bad job of making this feud compelling. Even the Rush/ Negro Casas feud wasn’t so one -sided.

  2. After a boring, weak year and the Park/Wagner Stuff a Sombra mask loss would really be the last straw for me. If he loses and leaves CMLL they lost one of their best guys, if he loses and stays CMLL have lost their minds.
