taped 2013-07-23 @ Arena Mexico
Pequeño Halcón, Shockercito, Último Dragoncito vs Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Olímpico, Pequeño Warrior: Dancing guy in the Que Monito mask after the match was far better than anything which took place in the match. Pequeño Halcón fought as if he was told a good match might get him a good position in next week’s title tournament and he totally couldn’t handle the pressure. He seemed nervous and off, even by his usual standards. Everything else was a match; they tried to make it exciting but it was tough to care.
Dalis la Caribeña, Dark Angel, Goya Kong vs La Seductora, Princesa Blanca, Tiffany: Crowd live seemed to really enjoy this match. On TV, this came across as another not good women’s match that went nearly 20 minutes – I feel like I should get a badge for watching a 20 minute CMLL women’s match of late. Dark Angel is still really good and I’m glad we got to see her in at least one good match while she was around, but this wasn’t it. I don’t think there’s anyone where the fans in the building and people like me watching on TV differ more on than Goya Kong; she seems to get one of the ten biggest reactions in the company from the fans.
Ángel de Oro, Rey Cometa, Super Porky vs Morphosis, Olímpico, Shigeo Okumura: technically okay match that was quite boring. The young guys still did their big moves at the end of falls but there was not a lot of interesting stuff in between; even the Super porky comedy seemed less effort than usual. Everyone worked down to their surroundings. They could’ve easily ended this after the five minute first fall and no one would’ve missed out anything.
Atlantis, La Máscara, Thunder vs Felino, Mr. Niebla, Pierroth: Very weak ending to a weak show. A short main event with not much to say for it, except no one did anything horrendously bad and that was genuine possibility given the people involved. Many tired acts in one match.
