Navarro wins

recap

taped 2013-12-10 @ Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
Sagrado, Solar I, Stuka Jr. vs Negro Navarro, Olímpico, Psyco Ripper: good different style match. The CMLL regulars aren’t the first four guys you’d choice for a match of this kind, but they did okay here. Olímpico and Sagrado did a little better than the other two. Solar and Navarro seemed to be working faster than usual, with Solar never really getting on a hold for too long except for the first fall submission; maybe because it was a TV match and they didn’t have as much time to work with? Match wasn’t money throwing in good, but they’ve successfully trained the people that they’re supposed to throw in money every time Solar and Negro Navarro have a match.

Casas sneakiness

taped 2013-12-15 @ Arena Mexico

Súper Halcón Jr. vs Cancerbero in a lightning match: decent lightning match. Cancerbero is good, Halcón has good matches, and these two have faced each other in trios a decent amount, but they didn’t have much of a flow in this match and it wasn’t as interesting as it should be. Nothing bad, but easily skippable.

Atlantis, Valiente, Volador Jr. vs Felino, Negro Casas, Pierroth: Build up trios match with little value in isolation. Just really Negro Casas attacking Volador’s right knee repeatedly while the other four guys exist (if sometimes barely.) It would be a good way to make Volador sympathetic if anyone was willing to boo Negro Casas. They probably should stop whipping Volador when he’s meant to be selling his knee, but he did do his dive on his own so I guess it’s not so important. Next week’s match should be interesting, this really wasn’t.
