taped 2014-04-04 @ Arena México
Goya Kong, Lluvia, Silueta vs Dalys, Princesa Blanca, Princesa Sugheit: They’ve left the captains announcements as part of the broadcast this week. It’s much better, though it does mean they cut another 20 seconds from the match.
Average edited women’s match; actually maybe better than you’d expect given the people involved but nothing memorable at all. Less Goya Kong comedy than usual, or at least that made it thru editing. The best parts of this match where when the rudas were in control.
Máscara Dorada, Mistico, Volador Jr. vs Kráneo, Morphosis, Ripper: Normal flying guys versus the Invasors, with the rudos getting just enough to break up the técnicos run of offense. Tecnicos were moving a million miles per hour early. Dorada looked the best the entire way, as he often does. Someone needs to figure out a much better way to film Kraneo’s running hip attack into the camera, because it’s exposed every time they show it on TV. Mascara Dorada’s biggest career rival appears to be that Cementos Fortaleza ramp logo he’s always landing on. (Didn’t keep him down for too long here. )
Atlantis, La Máscara, Rush vs Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas, Shocker: This is a brawl all the way, which some of the guys can do better than others. La Mascara is the others, and can just superkick. La Mascara also sees Shocker come in the ring and attack his tag team partner Rush, and decides to just stand there and keep watching. He’s the worst. Negro Casas versus Rush is the spine, but it actually ended up as a tease for Shocker & Negro Casas challenging Rush & La Mascara for the tag team titles, provided someone in CMLL remembers Rush & La Mascara are the tag team champions. They went away from this direction the next couple weeks, so I’m guessing they don’t remember.
