  1. DQ Rush belt shot (0:18)

  2. Rush corner dropkick (2:20)

  3. Marco Corleone back suplex side slam (7:09)

What happened: 

fun for all

Rush took the belt away from Marco and the commission during the title match presentation (though this was a battle), and hits Marco in the head with it. Marco’s bleeding near his eye next time we get a good look at his head; he got his hands up, but it looks like the belt wrapped around his arm and still struck him in the head. Rush is immediately disqualified in fall 1, but goes after the cut anyway. Rush stays in control thru the second fall, and Marco fights back in the third to keep the title.

Volador and Mistico didn’t want anything to do with Caristico during the match, even refusing to come back after Carístico was beat in the second fall. Volador stole Caristico’s pin in the third fall. They attacked and unmasked Carístico after.

The Dinamitas retained their title. Esfinge needed medical attention after attacking a Cuatrero crucifix powerbomb for the finish. It didn’t seem like a bad landing and could’ve just been selling the finish.

Hijo de Centella huts an ankle on an moonsault to end the second fall and is not a big part of the rest of the match.

Thoughts: 

an accidental version of the comedy rope running spot

The main event worked much better than expected, in part because the opening belt shot worked better than expected. The story of Rush ambushing Maroc and Marco having to fight his way back from a Rush beating to keep his title was a solid one, and the accidental blood made it even more dramatic. It didn’t feel like a usual match from either, there was more thought into it and definitely more effort than usual on Rush’s side. It’s still brief compared to a normal title match and Tirantes getting involved to stop Rush didn’t really help anybody, but the attempts to make Marco title matches interesting are working.

The semimain was more story telling of everyone hating Carístico that a match. In typical CMLL form, they missed the moment where Volador and Mistico actually attacked Carístico, but it was good otherwise. It sure is going to be weird when they go back to teaming like usual after this, but I still believed that would happen at this point.

Esfinge is not smooth

The Coliseo tag team title match was sloppy and not interesting for two falls, with the big moves in the third fall making it more watchable more than what preceded it. Stigma and Esfinge come off as knock off wrestlers from a promotion trying to imitate CMLL, doing a lot of spots bigger stars already do, but doing them with the polish or snap that makes those top guys better. Cuatrero angrily German suplexing Stigma for pinning his brother was pretty great.

Malayo stretches Asturiano

The comeback spot in the third fall of the minis match was super contrived by Asturiano & Stukita go to do splashes on the ramp and that was cool. I have no idea what Joker’s finish on Asturiano was supposed to be.

Opener was boring. The older Centella Roja isn’t good, and the third fall seemed like they gave up whatever they had planned once the younger Centella was hurt between falls. The segunda boring rudos / Millenium was also is not good. Neither worth was watching. It didn’t feel as bad as hyped on Twitter but I could not wait until moving onto something else.

The only thing I’ve seen is Zeuxis/Maravilla, which was exactly what you’d want out of that match.

Texano says he’s on Friday’s Queretaro show. My assumption that AAA was promoting the main event without mentioning him because he wouldn’t be there is wrong.  Your guess is as good as mine what the AAA matches will be.

great match roundup, week of 2017-10-07

this is so late that these guys team is almost done

included in this group

It’s November and I’m posting the second week of October stuff. So it goes. GIF burn out is real. It looks like I actually had this specific post ready on October 17, but it took me two weeks to finish the Crash stuff. I guess you’re getting what you pay for.

This was the Leyenda de Plata week, which was really good. Taya/Sexy Star was better than Dalys/Sugehit live but I think the TV version was worse? I don’t know, it’s a long time ago. The real thing TV couldn’t capture is how cathartic it was to see Dante Fox & Killshot win together 24 hours after seeing them tear each other apart.
