I didn’t rate many matches this week. You missed a lot of OKs, I think. Or you didn’t really miss it. Didn’t get an extra group done in this set but 05/05 Crash was done so late that I probably should’ve been in with these. There will be one in the next group.
The MOTYC list is up. I’ve got an idea for it that may pop up elsewhere.
Jeremiah Crane vs Mil Muertes [Cueto Cup] and in a tournament quarterfinal match
The Sugehit/Zeuxis match seemed fun from what I saw but the rest of the show doesn’t sound like it went well.
Today’s CMLL show is nothing special. Last week’s show set up an Ultimo Guerrero/Mistico feud, which probably will be a singles match next week. They already made it clear it’ll happen and wanted it to happen this week, so they’re just killing time this week. UG should be back from the UK in time to wrestle that match next week. This week, he teams with Cavernario & Negro Casas and Mistico with Rush & Valiente.
Drone versus Puma should be a fun lightning match. Maya, Idol & Cometa face Misterioso, Sagrado and Virus could be good. The opener has Fiero & Retro making a stream, which is the first CMLL YouTube appearance for Retro ever. It’s still not a promising card.
+Lucha’s podcast talked to Heavy Metal and Extreme Tiger about being possibly part of the Copa TripleMania match. Heavy Metal sounded like he wasn’t interested and wasn’t in it right now but didn’t 100% rule out his mind being changed later. It was harder to make out Tiger’s audio but he didn’t seem like he’d be participating either.
Villano IV says he’s forming a civil association, Dinastia Imperial, to fight for better conditions. One of the problems with this idea and Octagon’s idea are these are being fronted by people who are at the end of their career and don’t have much leverage to force the changes they’d like to see.
A title change doesn’t seem out of the question; Azul would’ve been the favorite to win the title had he been around. They could have him win it to build him up if he has a big match in September, or they could have Rush cost him the match for the saem reason.
Robinson & Taven are working Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday and probably Tuesday.
