taped 2012-06-01 @ Auditorio Benito Juárez de Veracruz
Corsario de Fuego, Exorcista Jr., Poseidon vs Angel del Misterio, Vengador Radiactivo, Xtremo: fun opening match. A bit rough at times, but exceeded expectations for an opener. Angel del Misterio & Xtremo both look good as técnicos, Exorcista & Corsario were good as rudos, and the other two weren’t that bad, just maybe not at the same level.
Dinastía, Mascarita Dorada, Octagoncito vs Mini Charly Manson, Mini Histeria, Mini Psycho Clown: a lot of time here, so the minis shifted down to a slower pace and there wasn’t quite as much crazy Dinastía as there were in other matches. This was still better than okay, but not as good as the other ones. Mini Charly and Mini Psycho Clown are both minis who show up for two weeks every four months and are weirdly rudos while the big versions of their charactersare (at last check) técnicos, but I think Psycho is slightly better than Charly. I know it doesn’t really matter.
Atomic Boy, Fabi Apache, Lolita vs Gran Apache, Mari Apache, Sexy Lady: Really fun mixed trios match. Like Dinastía, Atomic Boy didn’t get to do everyone he could do, but what he could do look really good. Action was really fun and fast paced the whole way. Sexy Lady didn’t get to show off a lot and had some problems with Lolita’s tricky stuff (to be expected), but looked perfectly fine. Better debut than most of the CMLL young girls.
Dr. Wagner Jr. & Silver King vs Máscara Año 2000 Jr. & Texano: The impressive part of this feud is how strongly Dr. Wagner has totally invested himself into this feud. He’s had to know from day one where it was ending up, and I’m sure it helps a lot, but similar guys in his position would still not give as much as he’s giving here. It’s still not going to work, because Mascara is such a non-entity, but it’s not going to be Wagner’s fault. This is a the feud in a match, every trick employed to make Máscara seem like a threat, and a clean finish to boot. It’s still not very good, but not for lack of effort.
