CMLL Guadalajara on Teleformula #16 (10/09/2010) 
Recapped: 10/14/10

Announcers are Julio Cesar, Rey Bucanero and Felino. Guess Shocker wm't be around for a while. Felino remembers Rey Bucanero taking Mr. Aguila's hair! I don't even remember that. Felino also can't resist throwing out a challenge to Gallo when JCR is setting up the main event.

Winner: técnicos
Match Time:14:49
Rating: eh.
Notes: Strong Man is wearing a Viva Mexico sombrero. WIN.

1: Short Sombra/Mephisto sequence to start. Strong Man comes in and wants Mr. Niebla, but he runs. Strong Man shoulderblocks the other two down, shoulderblocks Mr. Niebla, and they all jump on him and beat him down. Rudo domination from there. While the rudos have Fantasma in a double armbar, Niebla rubs his backside in Fantasma's face. That's punishment. Strong Man comes back in after both his teammates have been beat.

2: Rudos still in control. Fantasma's hung from the top rope and choked – it's the setup for the flying sit, only if they never do the flying sit. Strong Man comes in and the non-Niebla rudos just hide. Strong Man actually looks lost, looking at Mephisto in the far corner while Niebla stands inches from him (and doesn’t attack.) Strong man ends up shoving Niebla into Mephisto and choking them both at the same time. Aguila breaks it up, which distracts Strong Man enough for Niebla to bite him on the backside. That's something that actually hurts Strong Man. Fantasma starts the comeback by leaping out over a double corner charger. Crowd shot clip, and Strong Man's running the mover with clotheslines. Mephisto kicks him low, but Sombra headscissors Mephisto out. Sombra goes for a dive, and Strong Man almost accidentally cuts him off. Tope con giro still lands. Other técnicos immediately end the fall.

3: Showcases start with Fantasma, who gets in quite a few butt shakes. Didn't figure on it happening this way, but he's a better fit for the ladies man role then the guys they've tried. Sombra starts off with Aguila. Sombra takes off his shirt, and Aguila faints. That was great. Niebla slaps him back alive. Strong Man is too strong for both Niebla and Mephisto. Fantasma gets Niebla with a tope after he's knocked outside, and Sombra does something to Mephisto that's completely missed by the camera. This leaves Aguila alone with Strong Man, and that goes poorly for the rudo. Chokeslam, done.

They never get a replay of Somrba's dive. Oh well.

Match 2: Gallo, Metal Blanco, Rush © vs Dragón Rojo Jr., Misterioso II, Sangre Azteca ©

Winner: rudos (2-1)
Match Time: 15:37
Rating: kind of a squash, but OK.
Notes: Poder Mexica enters as a group. Dragon Rojo screws with Metal Blanco's robe. Gallo's rooster call music is never not funny. Both Blanco and Gallo have their belts. Rush throws his breakaway pants at Sangre Azteca, and Sangre starts fighting with him about it. They settle down long enough for introductions.

1: Dragon Rojo does the chicken dance! Dragon Rojo is actually awesome, don't listen to the haters. He and Gallo have an opening chain wrestling exchange. When it switches to forearm trading, and Dragon Rojo seems to be getting the worst of it, the other rudos run in and stomp down Gallo. Rush come s into chop all three, and then they all three dropkick him to officially start the beatdown. Double drop toe hold, Rush rolls out, and Rush is rammed butt first into the post. Rudos successfully execute a boosted dropkick – I didn't know they were allowed to do that! And it's good for three, wow. Gallo gets in a shot on Sangre Azteca, but the other rudos grab him, hold him upside down, and Sangre adds his usual dropkick. That's two, and the fall.

2: Beatdown continues. Blanco is sat in the corner for a two man low blow dropkick. Double backdrop for Gallo. Rudos press slam Blanco over the top rope – that's a DQ, even in Guadalajara. Rudos don't know the rule. Rudos never know that rule.

3: Blanco takes the stamp press powerbomb, being dropped on the ramp three times before being held for another low blow dropkick. To start the comeback, Rush gets whipped into the corner, Misterio misses the charge and dives out of the ring, Sangre Azteca gets superkicked, and Dragon Rojo stops him with a chop. Dragon Rojo then goes celebrate at the tree sides of the rings, which gives Rush enough time to recover and chop him. Everyone else just hangs outside while they brawl for a second. Rush wins the battle via dropkick. Dragon gets tossed with an over head belly to belly suplex and a follows with an elbow drop. Rush looks at the crowd instead of going on, and his big senton misses. Dragon Rojo whips Rush over other rudos, who pulls him down by his hair. As usual, Rush recovers, superkicks the offending rudo, and takes care of the other one with kicks. Rush stomps Dragon out of the ring and poses. None of the rudos want to fight Galllo. Misterioso walks out, comes back, and agrees to fight. Eventually. Headscissors is shown, something else is edited out, and Sangre Azteca is wildly stomping Gallo into the mat when they come back. I think I know how that might have gone. Sangre misses a corner dropkick and eats his required monkey flip. Dropkick ends him out. Neither Gallo nor Dragon Rojo can each other down with headscissors, but Gallo sends Rojo out with a casadora armdrag. Metal Blanco does a springboard front flip to come in, just to be odd. Misterioso gets fooled on a handshake a few times before taking control of the situation. Corner chops, rudo first, técnicos second. Misterioso is sent out, Sangre comes in and slaps down Blanco, goes to climb to the second rope to celebrate, and legitimate slips. Crowd has a good time laughing and poor Sangre. Blanco ends up sending him out with a springboard headscissors. Crowd scatters, thinking a dive is coming, but Blanco just slides out. Sangre grabs Blanco and tells Misterioso to dive, but Misterioso must wave at the people on the seats to move away three times before trying – and then Gallo pulls him out the other side. Metal Blanco back in, but his tope gets his partner – A set of front row seats just goes down. Dragon Rojo and Rush left in, Rush slaps down Dragon Rojo, but runs right into Misterioso’s scoop. FU, double missile low blow dropkick by the other two, that's it.

Rudos celebrate, then beat up on the técnicos some more. I guess that’s a kind of celebration. Gallo takes the face first bump on the ramp in the most unconvincing fashion possible. This beating is mostly low level, but the técnicos are all left out on the ground when the rudos leave.
