What happened:

Gran Guerrero pulled off Valiente’s mask and pinned him to get the two fall win for the rudos.

Angelito & Pequeno Olimpico mildly feuded at the start of their match, but the issue from last week was dropped.



The main event was only interested to see if Valiente would do his tope again a week later. He never got a chance, the match just didn’t go that way. It didn’t go much at all, with no one trying that hard. Niebla Roja’s toss into a kick looks really bad without good effort, and he made no effort with the kick here. Gran Guerrero/Valiente is a rare feud without a singles match. It’s not two guys I’m eager to see but at least it’s a sign CMLL can still do those – assuming it goes somewhere.

Star Jr. had some ideas in the lightning match, which made it more fun than usual. I’m not sure the dropkick landing on the apron made it more effective but I bet that landing is easier than the floor. The set up to the superman punch in the ring was a little forced, but it was cool to see a guy use this set up to try new concepts instead of just running through the usual ones. Virus was motivated too and it was going along good until it got cut off about 25 seconds before the finish.

Rob and I are joined by DoradaFan Alex and Angel on this edition of the podcast. We discuss DoradaFan’s truncated recent trip to Mexico and the lucha libre scene in Torreon. The podcast lasts runs about 90 minutes.

The Skype recording failed. Shockingly, I was smart enough to have a second recording going. That one turned out really quiet, I corrected, maybe I overcorrected, maybe don’t turn your volume all the way up when you start listening. (That’s also why the ending gets cut off.)
