recap

taped 2013-08-16 @ Arena Mexico

double stomp

Metálico & Sensei vs Nitro & Skándalo: more veteran of an opener than usual because of the crew, and not as much a Tuareg match as usual because it was edited down. This worked for what we saw. Metálico continues to look good and should get something to do, as long as that something isn’t involving Hijo del Signo.

 

Valiente bullet tope

Estrellita, Marcela, Silueta vs Amapola, Princesa Blanca, Princesa Sugheit: Didn’t make a case that they should have been on the Anniversary card during the sloppy second fall, but the rest of the match was better. Shorter than usual and felt rushed during parts (and probably contributed to some of the oddness.) This was okay and better than most CMLL women’s trios, but it was one of the best possible trios with the people who are around and it didn’t really feel like it was that great.

 

Mascara Dorada

Máscara Dorada, Mistico, Valiente vs Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto: Just the match they’ve been doing between these two teams, but it’s a good match. Dorada stole the show as usual. Someone was very high on doing instant pinfall wins on this show. Averno’s inability to survive submissions explains why he’s had so much trouble with this Místico gimmick.
