recap

taped 2012-12-18 @ Arena Mexico

dancin’ Skandalo

Leono, Sensei, Tigre Blanco vs Bobby Zavala, Disturbio, Skándalo: the Bobby Zavala/Tigre Blanco half of this feud is a lot hotter than the other two, and I still have no idea how this feud is going to go. This was strong build to it otherwise (with Skándalo & Sensei doing a normal segunda match in between it.)

Mascara Dorada high backdrop

La Máscara, Máscara Dorada, Tritón vs Mephisto, Pólvora, Rey Escorpión: The Dorada losing streak continues! He’s got to stop going to the middle rope, it’s becoming like Stuka and Misterioso. Match was okay but elevated a level from that by a very loud crowd. Dorada and Escorpion had one problem spot but it was an otherwise smooth match. It was also just a match for a match’s sake.

Dragon Rojo ramp dropkick

Dragón Rojo Jr. vs Euforia: Dragon Rojo holds two different singles belts. It’s amazing. This was a Rojo dominated match for the first half, which wasn’t a particularly good thing, and then Rojo aggravated his never healed injury in the second half, which really didn’t help things. I hope Dragon Rojo one day is actually healthy and good.

Maximo sexually harassing a parrot

Felino, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas vs Atlantis, Guerrero Maya Jr., Máximo: Negro Casas and Guerrero Maya Jr. having a serious battle in the midst of a mostly comedy match from the other rudos. They kept the Maya/Negro part serious enough to work, and they both (especially Maya) seemed excited for the match. So am I! There wasn’t a whole lot of it here, which means next week will be all new to the rest of us.
