What happened:

Titan headscissors

Angel de Oro and Felino continue to feud, though no challenges in front of the crowd tonight. Soberano kept his title over Negro Casas.

Bandido was introduced as a new CMLL signing after the fourth match. He had a brief skirmish with NGD. This was the most interesting thing of the night easily.

Kawato fouled Dulce Gardenia for the DQ, then challenged Dulce to a hair versus hair match. Dulce Gardenia accepts in between brawls.

Chamuel and Microman had issues during their match. Chamuel stole the pin from Microman in the first. Microman headscissors Chamuel when he seemed to be doing the same in the ring. The rudos attacked the tecnicos after the match.


odd teamwork

The mixed sides main event was a cover to flip Angel de Oro and Felino, at least for one night. The problem was the fans cared not at all about Angel de Oro & Felino tonight and focusing the match around them made for a dead atmosphere. The crowd wasn’t into the main event all that much after what had been an interesting show to that point. It was fine, it just wasn’t much.

Negro Casas and Soberano had a slightly better version of the same title match they’ve had before. The finishing run was more interesting, with Casas coming close a lot of times on cradles instead of just the casita spot. Casas took a big impact at the end. The crowd was no more sold on cheering Soberano over Casas but that’s never going to happen. This wasn’t so much better than other matches that you need to see all of them but it was still good.

NGD didn’t do the first fall attack outside of the ring this week. It did end about the same way, though that was expected after the NGD/Bandido angle. The flow of the match was changed around a bit in between, feeling a bit fresher than usual. The underlining problems of the NGD taking most of the match are still there, but this was better than the recent matches.

Star Jr. goes over the top

Kawato San & Dulce Gardenia bringing their rivalry to Tuesday was the only real remit to the tercera. They did a good job of getting over Kawato’s agrees and Dulce’s willingness to fight back in a short time. The other tecnicos got a lot of time and did well with it. Star Jr. going over where most people go under Stuka Jr. was a neat variation.

The Micros match at least got through a whole Microman/Chamuel story in the course of the match and it was something different than they had done before. It wasn’t particularly interesting outside of the finishing spots, going too long of the story they had to tell.

A bit better opener than usual, with three people having good moments. Oro Jr.’s headscissors was a bigger spot than usual for an opener. Coyote’s willing to take big moves. Espanto is at his worst when it comes to taking moves from others. He struggled with Sonic’s finish in the second fall and it was no coincidence Sonic’s better moments came all with Espanto. Sonic was a tope from going full-on signature Santo spot.

One thought to “CMLL on Marca: 2019-11-29”

  1. so what are the tea leaves to read in this?
    ROH / CMLL relationship seems sturdy?
    CMLL is spending money again?
    Bandito’s supposed to be on AAA’s show same as Rush on Sunday?
    In addition to what it exactly means, what’s happened backstage to cause such a change to whatever it is?
