Sky Kid & Smaker

taped 2014-03-04 @ Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
Sky Kid, Smaker, Star Jr. vs Akuma, Artillero, Súper Comando: Fun match, better than expected given the newness off most of the participants. Might have been great if they had more time to do a bit more, but still really good and sets up an exciting tag title match. Sky Kid and Smaker looked a lot more steady than previous appearances. Super Comando is vastly underutilized but had a chance to look good here and did. Maybe the best Akuma’s look took, because he was an efficient cog in the rudo war machine. Akuma had a quick trigger in the second fall; he submitted before Star Boy could even finish the hold. Third fall finish was a very sudden change of momentum.

Delta, Rey Cometa, Super Porky vs Misterioso Jr., Puma, Tiger: Fun midcard match, with Cometa & Delta doing the athletic stuff and Porky being integrated into the match well. Rudos looked good, and Cometa was impressive in reversing Puma’s finisher at the end. Brazo de Plata is the only one who gets an apology from Bestia Negra when he refuses to count for other people being in the ring. Cometa dizzying himself on his own headscissors was hilarious, as was the rudos schoolboy tripping Porky over Tiger.

Máscara Dorada, Valiente, Volador Jr. vs Reaper, Rey Bucanero, Terrible: Standard build up trios match which wasn’t interesting much itself and was edited down in time quite a bit for TV (though not edited down enough to include any of the post match promo!) Reapper/Volador has just not been that compelling and finish was half screwed up. Volador’s headband, in the Escorpion/Cometa style, is at least better than his towel scarf. Bucanero & Valiente seemed to be having a battle over who could look in their finishing hold for longer.

Puma and Cometa are good together!
