Arena Mexico, 01/31/2010
Match Time: 14:09
Rating: below average for this crew. Had some not good moments.
Notes: Lady Apache has the PWR belt she just picked up. The princesses are both wearing their Zorra gear. Instead of a graphic or a pose by the captains, there's a pre-taped bit of the women dramatically turning to face the camera, and I'm clearly not supposed to be laughing at it. Oh well. Amapola also does a promo, and seems to have died her trips pink to match her gear. Though Marcela is the captain, Apache does the promo for her team, so she can talk about her new belt.
1: Marcela controlling Blanca on the mat. Blanca gets free for a short lived chinlock, then manages to take back control with an armdrag and armbar. Marcela quickly gets free with her own armdrag. Lockup, back to the mat, Marcela rides around on Blanca’s back for a bit, Blanca gets free just enough to take another armdrag. Blanca manages to get free enough for a bridging waistlock cradle, but Marcela kicks out of that. Marcela escapes a tilt-a-whirl to send Blanca out via bouncing armdrag, and relents there. Clip? Apache and Sujei suddenly in, though Sujei is taking her time to taunt the crowd before locking up. Apache ends up with a leg lock, putting Sujei within an arm reach of the ruda corner, but reaching thru the ropes to tag doesn't count this week. Blanca argues the ruling, as Apache pulls Sujei back away from the corner. Sunset flip reversal spot leads to an Apache inside cradle for two. Zero leg trips, flips to the feet, and standoff. Amapola and Lluvia are last in. Lockup, break. Lockup, Amapola waistlock, Lluvia looks for a way out, and Amapola doesn’t really have he hands locked together on the waistlock, so it should not be hard. Lluvia escapes to an armbar, Amapola rolls to a front facelock, and stays on when Lluvia tries to spins free. Lluvia is able to drop Amapola on the mat and put an armbar, but Amapola rolls thru the reversal lighting quick. Lluvia earns a moment to breath by sending Amapola away via armdrag. Lockup, Amapola puts Lluvia on the mat again, and Lluvia comes back with an armdrag again. Amapola argues, isn’t listened too much. Double armbar set sup another set of reversal, Lluvia getting a bodyscissors armdrag. Ampola’s had enough of that, pulling Lluvia down by her hair. Corner whip, reversed, Lluvia charges in, Amapola kicks her away. Amapola charges out, sunset flip, Lluvia rolls thru and moves out of the way, so Lady Apache can drop on Amapola with a senton con giro. Blanca kicks Lady Apache and holds her, Amapola swings, but holds up before hitting her partner. Rudas try a double clothesline on Apache, Apache ducks under, and Marcela gets them both with a missile dropkick. Meanwhile, Apache's grabbed Sujei into a mercedora, I think. Not the cleanest one, but it works. Tecnicas pick up the other pins Lluvia pins Amapola with a tirabuzón into a cradle, and Marcela takes care of Blanca with a victory roll.
Fans are mixed.
Miguel holds the microphone so Lady Apache to talk about winning the PWR Women's Championship. They’re treating it like it's a big deal.
Julio talks about Princesa Blanca. Funny how the two people who have belts actually defended in this promotion did not actually have their belts for this match. Then again, they talked about the PWR title as if it might be defended here.
2: Sujei is wandering around on the ramp. Ring card girl is expecting Sujei to move out of her way; you think this would mean its' a new ring card girl, but no. After she figures out to move around Sujei, Sujei still jacks the card and walked around for it – until Blanca takes the card from her, gives it back to the ring card girl, and drags Sujei back to the ring. Well then.
Blanca and Marcela start the fall, Blanca swinging and missing until Marcela dropkicks her. Black is quick enough to sidestep a second, and tosses Marcela around by her hair. Corner whip, Marcela climbs to the middle rope, and grabs Blanca with a headscissors as she charges. Kick, front suplex. Lluvia in, and Marcela whips her into a dropkick on Blanca. Amapola kicks Lluvia down. Chest slap. Corner whip, Amapola charges in, Lluvia gets her feet up, but way too late, and Amapola catches them, swings them into the ropes, and pulls Lluvia down to the mat by her hair. Corner whip, Amapola charges in, Lluvia skirts out of the ring this time, then pushes off the top rope for a headscissors. Amapola is sent towards the técnica corner, and Lluvia charges for a springboard bulldog – not much spring. Lluvia jumps to Amapola’s shoulders, but Amapola losers her because Lluvia can escape with the armdrag, and drops the técnica forward. Amapola stomps her, then picks her up. Whip, hiptoss, no, Lluvia blocks and gets in her own. Lluvia tags in Lady Apache, who waits for Amapola to walk over. Amapola grabs Apache for a hiptoss in, but Lady apache lands on feet and armdrags Amapola. Apache off the ropes, headscissors send Amapola out. Apache starts to run off the ropes, but Sujei nails her with a kick from outside. Sujei in, lots of kicks and an elbow drop on Apache. Sujei alternating talking with hard kicks to the back. Whip, re-oh, Apache actually lots hold of Sujei, so she has to change her mind and keep running. Amusing. Apache dusk a clothesline, shoulderblock, and to the ropes for a rope grab headscissors. Sujei’s tossed out onto the ramp. Apache bounces off the ropes, then runs towards the ruda corner (?), where Amapola gives her a shoulder to the midsection. Rudas rush the técnicas – bad time for the huge second fall graphic, sot here it is. Tecincos are all down when they go full screen again. Lady Apache is eventually brought in, and Sujei drops her face first into Blanca's upraised feet. Lluvia next. Corner clothesline, whip, back to the middle so Blanca can toss her up into Lluvia's missile dropkick. Tough to tell if it actually hit or not from the angle they used (leaning towards not, so fine choice on the angle!) All three técnicas end come back in, beat up by all three rudas. Sujei takes care of Marcela, while Amapola hooks Lluvia in a – cobra clutch? Drops them both backwards like a legsweep, and holds onto as she sits on top of Lluvia, as if a half camel clutch. That's new. Blanca just tosses Apache into Lluvia as she's falling, then puts on a devastating toe hold.
Of all the new Ras de Lona ads, the Felino one is the best.
Leobardo talks about Lady Apache
3: Rudas still in control, but bring all técnicas in. Lluvia is hung in the ropes so Amapola can get her Running choke on the ropes. Marcela and Lluvia are sent out, and Lady Apache is held in a corner. Corner whip, Amapola whipped in after, Lady Apache holds her midsection open as if expecting a kick, and Amapola runs her shoulder in stead. That was painful looking. Amapola whips her into a Sujei kick to the midsection, Blanca adds a sunset flip, Amapola stands Apache up as she rolls out of it, and Blanca dropkicks her down. Lluvia and Marcela both in. Sujei takes care Lluvia herself while the other two boot Marcela. Back to Apache. Double hiptoss, all three rudas high ten to set up the dropkick, but have trouble with the high ten part - that's enough time for Marcela and Lluvia to grab Amapola and Blanca by their hair and pull them away. Sujei still bounces of the ropes (why?) and Apache dropkicks her in the knee before stomping on her head. Tecnicas beat on the rudas a little, but Amapola takes off quickly, Blanca is pushed out soon after and Marcela and Lluvia just peacefully head to their corner while Sujei and Apache are left in the ring. Apache misses on a springboard plancha, and Sujei kicks her in the ribs. Kick to the shoulder. Off the ropes, Apache clothesline misses, Sujei inside cradle one two no. Sujei clothesline misses, Apache backside, Sujei rolls thru, dropkick misses, Apache covers her, one two rudas break it up. Marcela and Lluvia come in on to grab them. Marcela grabs Amapola and gives her a double underhook backbreaker, while Lluvia gives Blanca a, uh, running back elbow, I guess it was spinning too, though it still not quite on the same level. Bad time to shrink the screen, so that's when they do it – at least this time, it's only that way for maybe 2 seconds, hurried as if they acknowledge the issue. Stereo dropkicks by técnicas, who seems to be waiting for something instead following up. Off the ropes (past the rudas), but tripped up by Sujei. Blanca and Amapola dropkicks the técnicas, and they roll out. Blanca does the double jump plancha onto Marcela, while Amapola goes thru the ropes for a rope con giro on Lluvia. Lluvia made a fine catch on that, especially with Amapola hitting the ropes on the way thru. Sujei observers, then turns around into a top rope plancha from Lady Apache. Sujei off the ropes waved by, waved by, spun into a tilt-a-whirl and Sujei – reverses it into a fujiwara! Lady Apache gives! That was out of nowhere!
Post match replays show that Amapola missed that dropkick on Lluvia by so much that she ended up landing on her.

Match 2: Hijo del Fantasma, Máscara Dorada, Toscano © vs Dragon Rojo Jr., Felino, Negro Casas ©
Arena Mexico, 01/31/2010
Winner: tecnicos (2-0)
Match Time: 10:43
Rating: amsuinig, but not much
Notes: Looks like Felino came to the ring with a toilet lid around his head. Oh, these teams are doing the dramatic looks at the camera too. Felino does the promo for his side. For his promo, Dorada does a running flip into the ring and catches the microphone, awesome.
1: Crowd loud for Negro, who's no even in. Toscano and Felino start, Felino angrily ripping off his shirt after an exchange. Felino frees himself from a hold by rubbing his armpit, then rubbing that hand in Toscano’s face. Dragon Rojo and Fantasma are in next. Rojo may have gone on a hunger strike since not winning the trios titles, except he still has his muscles. He’s very lean. Fantasma takes off his shirt – that’s the opening Negro needs to ambush him, and Dragon Rojo cleans the other técnicos off the apron. The rudos hold Fantasma hanging over the apron, so Negro can work him over with kicks to the chest from the floor. Double elbows to Fantasma back too. Rudos comes in and grabs Dorada next. Camel clutch, dropkick to the head combo. Toscano next, getting in shots on Felino before his partners can help out. Felino holds Toscano down for Dragon Rojo to kick a bunch. Fantasma runs in and grabs Dragon Rojo, which just leaves him open to a Negro headbutt from behind. Meanwhile, Felino brings Dorada to the ramp, and tosses him towards the entrance. Negro unties Fantasma’s mask, then chokes him while holding him on the top rope. Negro gets warned, so Felino comes over to do it instead. Negro rudos take turns hitting Fantasma as hard as possible in the chest. Felino and Dragon Rojo whip Fantasma, Fantasma ducks a double clothesline, and handspring back elbow Dragon Rojo down. Felino back elbows Fantasma, then turns to wait for Dorada to come running down the apron – flying into the ring headscissors gets Felino. Negro boots Dorada down, but Toscano gets him with a top rope armdrag. Felino shoulderblocks Toscano, but Dorada gets both Dragon Rojo and Felino with a springboard plancha. Toscano tosses Dorada into a 'rana on Dragon Rojo, one two three. Toscano gets Felino with a bodyscissors cradle and back bridge. Negro comes in, then runs out, annoying the fans and staying away from Fantasma.
Miguel talks about Felino
2: JIP. Dorada and Dragon Rojo have a chest slap fight. Kick. Whip, clotheslines misses, Dorada tossed up, and down with an armdrag. That was beautifully done. Dorada off the ropes, over, nailed with a running clothesline for Felino, Felino runs even faster to bounce off the ropes for a dropkick. Felino poses, then rushes over and kisses his brother! Quite a celebration there. Crowd gets on Negro, while Felino pays no attention. Corner whip, Negro Felino charges, Dorada 's moved out of the way, Felino hits the corner. Dorada jumps to the middle rope, spins around on the rope, steps across the corner to the middle rope on the other side, spins around again, then jumps off for a spinning headscissors onto Felino! It's like Dorada has figured out how to break the rules of physics sometime in the last couple of months, or maybe just has confidence to try any wacky idea he comes up with. Of course, Negro immediately silences him with one chop. Dorada fights back, but Negro drops him to his knees via heel kick, then elbows him on the top of the head. Negro walks over to the bottom rope, spins around like Dorada, and walks back off to heel kick Dorada in the head again. Crowd goes wild. Negro picks up Dorada and holds him by his neck for a moment, and Dorada armdrags him after a moment too long. Dorada leaves so Fantasma can get Negro, but Negro rolls out to escape first. Fantasma and Negro compete for crowd reactions. Toscano comes in to take Fantasma’s place, but is not paying attention and is knocked down by Felino. Corner whip, Toscano runs up the ropes, and off with a spinning armdrag, sending Felino out. Dragon Rojo shoulderblocks, Toscano, off the ropes, Toscano leapfrogs, and Dragon Rojo levels him with chest slap. Dragon Rojo celebrates knocking the man down greatly. Chest slap fight, Toscano wining it, Dragon Rojo tries to kick, Toscano catches it and ducks the rudo’s punch. Toscano drops Rojo’s foot, ducks a clothesline, and kinda whiffs on the armdrag. Fans give it to Toscano, though it really wasn’t totally his fault there. Quebradora, and pose by Toscano, despite the loud booing. Fantasma in, and Felino tries to keep Negro from facing him. Negro orders Felino out, so Felino starts a Negro chant instead. Sudden break.
Julio talks about Mascara Dorada.
Magadan talks about Fantasma
It's 3 minutes and change until this show is over; I wonder how many falls this match is going? Anyway, match picks back up with Negro standing over Fantasma and posing. Fantasma stands up, and knocks him down with his climb up enziguri. Fantasma – conducts the boos? Dances? Sings to himself? I am not sure. Crowd clearly behind Negro. Felino and Fantasma exchange zero covers, then Fantasma shakes his backside for Felino. Fantasma walks around the ring, and Felino knocks him down from the backside, bounces off the ropes, and kicks him in the head. Felino grabs Fantasma, Rojo charges with a boot, Fantasma moves, Felino catches the boot in time. Rudo double clothesline misses, Fantasma off the ropes, Dragon Rojo tosses him up into a dropkick on Felino. Dragon charges Fantasma, but gets backdropped to the apron. Fantasma swings, Rojo blocks, slaps, and turns to the crowd to pose - so Fantasma dropkicks him off. Other técnicos in – topes on the other rudos. This Fantasma climbs up to dive, but then spots Negro coming in. Negro runs around the ring, waving the crowd on, and they're very happy to cheer for him. Fantasma misses a punch, but still manages to superkick Negro into the crowd. Fantasma conducting the boos again. Fantasma charges the corner, Negro backdrop him away, and heel kicks Fantasma to keep them there. Crane pose takes too long, and Fantasma chest slap him from the outside. Fantasma up top, plancha, both back to their feet, Negro kicks, Fantasma catches it, Negro reaches for the mask – and it takes a couple tries and longer than they want, but Negro definitively gets it. Negro sticks in his pants and grabs Fantasma, but the refs grab the mask away and reward the DQ.
Replays. Fantasma’s face is hidden. It took so long to get the mask, Fantasma already had a hand up to cover his face. Rudos and técnicos pose for the crowd after, and the crowd boos the técnicos loudly and cheers the rudos louder. Rudos could not be happier about it.
