How to ID the Nuevo Guapos
- Tall, dark brown hair – (Damian el) Terrible (breaking off to go on his own)
- Short, full body gear, bald – Loco Max.
- Tends to almost kill himself – Ricky Marvin
- Tends to almost kill himself less gracefully – Tony Rivera
- Has a goatee. Somtimes – Genetico
- and TWINS – Marshall/Mr. Power
Perhaps we just need nametags. I guess Zumbido is gone from the group – he’s not listed on the CMLL NG page anymore. Isn’t in weird that there’s a Loco Max and a Super Crazy? Maybe just to me.
Rey and Ultimo are a busy men – looks like from show resuts that they flew back to Mexico after the Tory tour, and now they’re going all the way back. Hope they have frequent flier plans. Seeing as they’re working with Ultimo Dragon and a guy they wrestled a bit on that last tour (EDIT: well, before they changed the lineup – or I wasn’t paying attention and Kaz was there all along – but still), this should be very good – they at least know each other.
Ultimo/Shocker was/is the best match of the year. You had a good build into it (even though the match was a one week thing, it’s a spin off of a longer issue), a great match (still thought they should’ve gone back to the arm in the third fall a bit more – Circuit Breaker seems more a back attack) and a clean finish. The really cool thing is that Shocker just got beat by his own move for a title in their biggest arena – and I don’t think he’s hurt at all.
I wonder if there’s a sudden booking reinterest in doing something with all the titles they’ve got – not only did we get a CMLL LH change, but Emilio’s defended his middleweight title against Atlantis, as has Tarzan with his NWA LH title and Felino’s working a program with Juvi to set up a CMLL welterweight title defense there – none of those titles had been defended in months. Maybe it’s just a way to get a little more attention for cards post-Holidays, but it’s a welcome development.
