I haven’t seen a moment of this one yet, but my impression is the hair match was worse than I expected and the title match is better. Perverso is one of the better young luchadors but he’s not very good – or at least he hasn’t been in Arena Puebla – and it should be a problem to CMLL that they’re not developing lucahdors well in this arena right now. It doesn’t seem like that important of a thing to them. Soberano and Casas (who became a grandfather for the fifth time earlier in the day) has been good before and should be good again next week.
Nothing big tonight in Arena Mexico. Brothers Angel de Oro & Niebla Roja unite with Valiente to face Euforia, Gran Guerrero and Mr. Niebla. The semi-main give you your weekly doses of Rey Bucanero & Vangellys. They team with Hechicero against Kraneo, Stuka, and Titan. Blue Panther versus Felino might be a creative lightning match, or it might just be a match. Panther’s sons team with Audaz against Dark Magic, Okumura, and Virus. The group of Drone, Fuego, Misterioso, and Soberano feel like they’re one spot lower than usual (not as much Magia Blanca & Disturbio) by working a Tuesday second match, which is probably a ripple from Friday’s card being loaded up and midcard free. Magnus & Retro face Akuma & Espanto in the opener. This will stream at 7:30 pm on CMLL’s YouTube channel.
It’s a busier Tuesday than usual for shows. DTU has a busy show at Arena Aficion, which seems likely to turn up on +LuchaTV either live or later on. Lucha Memes and Generacion 21 are making a visit to Arena Queretaro. Mistico & Octagon versus Caristico & Fuerza Guerrera doesn’t appeal to my tastes but perhaps Caifan vs Puma King or Alas Acero/Iron Kid vs Arkangel Divino/Ultimo Demonio vs Gremlin/Speed Demon will be better.
The government of Soledad de Graciano Sanchez honored lucha libre venue Arena Margartia for its 15th Anniversary. I thought the venue was in San Luis Potosi proper and now I have a lot to fix at some point.
Laredo Kid was announced for the Black Label Pro “Turbo Graps 16” tournament on 09/21 in Crown Point, Indiana
