Match 1: Freesbe & Robin vs Camorra & Ramstein
Arena Mexico, 11/06/2012

Winner: rudos (2-1)
Match Time: 11:09 
Rating: eh
Notes: Referee is Maya. I'm getting more Fresbee & Camorra than recommended.

1: Pairs are Freesbe/Camorra and Robin/Ramstein. Crowd, what there is one, is very dead for the start of this and these guys aren't helping. It slightly picks up with Ramstein & Robin, but these guys are mostly wrestling to the noise of hitting the mat and each other. Ramstein trips Freesbe climbing the ropes, and the técnicos clean up from there. Ramstein's press slam gutbuster is pretty cool.

2: Camorra's low blow dropkick starts a brief foul debate. Rudos get a long seeming (but not actual in time) run of offense leading to Robin ducking a double clothesline and Freesbe landing on his head on a headscissors try.

3: Robin gets in some headscissors on Camorra, including one diving off the apron. Freesbe armdrag bit, but gets lifted up Camorra for a Ramstein flying legdrop, and that's the start of the end

Match 2: Hombre Bala Jr., Super Halcon Jr., Triton vs Artillero, Disturbio, Súper Comando

Match Time: 15:50
Rating: good
Notes: Referee Tigre Hispano. Halcón & Bala have new t-shrits, so they wear them thru the match in hopes someone might see them.

1: Pairs are Halcón/Artillero, Bala/Comando, Triton/Disturbio, with the most action in the last, then they repeat to end the fall. Bala's final series with Artillero is all sort of odd- he gives the rudo a Falcon Arrow for what looks like the pin, relents to put on a casita, then rolls thru that and puts on a half crab instead. I think he felt he messed up the casita and had to keep going, but it was like 3 finishes for 1.

2: Disturbio cuts off the edecan from walking down the aisle, much to the disappointment of the announcers. True rudo move. Artillero knocks down Halcón, but Halcón comes back with the corner double kneelift. Artillero bails, but gets superkick in the barricade and takes the double knee there as well. Super Halcón spectacular misses a splash into the corner, but rallies back for a top rope 'rana and a missile dropkick. Lean out of the ring into a casadora armdrag is slow, but Comando makes a huge noise when he's thrown into the barricade. Rudos take over off a simple Artillero trip from the outside. Bala takes the corner swarm beating, which seems to be a new rudo favorite maneuver. Rudos spend a lot of time kicking. Wheelbarrow cutter combo finishes Halcón. Comando clotheslines and stomps Triton in the corner for a Disturbio double knee to the face, and that does it. Rudos risk excessive violence disqualification beating up Bala, then Tigre Hispano and Super Comando get into a tiff abut raising his arm. Tigre Hispano, not putting up with any guff from anyone, refuses to raise Comando's arm.

3: Rudos keep control. Disturbio gives Halcón a nice running legdrop to the back of the head. Rudos are less aggressive this fall, and get caught outsmarted by Triton a couple times. He clears the ring of Disturbio and Artillero with no help, and then simply beats Super Comando with a 'rana. Halcón and Bala are just standing in their corner, waiting for a tag, when the match ends. They appear confused that the match is over. I am too.

Rudos argue the fall shouldn't be over, but Comando didn't kick out. It feels like this should be a story of Tigre Hispano screwing Super Comando, but it was totally legit. Comando and Artillero argue big.

Match 3: Dark Angel, Marcela, Silueta vs La Comandante, La Seductora, Tiffany
Arena Mexico, 11/06/2012

Winner: técnicas
Match Time: 17:32
Rating: ok/good
Notes: Referee is Terror Chino. This is a colorful match.

1: Normal first fall bit of Silueta putting Tiffany in holds and the other rudas breaking slowly turns into a beatdown. Rudas trash the técnicas for a great while, going thru them a couple times, without trying for a pinfall. Tiffany finally submits Silueta with a rolling reverse bodyscissors into an arm trap armbar in a neat bit. Comandante follows with her hold.

2: Dark Angel is trapped by the rudas early, but fights free and tags in Silueta as she stands on the bottom rope. Neither woman has been around to get the memo about new tag rules, so Silueta is totally confused why the referee is angry with her, and Dark Angel ignores the whole thing as she fights free off Seductora and escapes to the apron. The referee tries to intimidate Silueta to going back on the apron to tag in proper, but she just looks at him, and then ignores him and goes on with the match. Referee does not disqualify her. Silueta is a winner. Silueta and Comandante promptly screw up a double underhook spot, but let's talk about the importing things. (Comandante throws Silueta down to make herself feel better.) Marcela takes a corner back splash from Seductora, but manages to trip Seductora up and walk all over her and starts her usual offense run. Crowd approves. Silueta headscissors and dropkick Tiffany around, then follows with a silla from the apron when Comandante flips her off. Marcela whips Comandante into a Dark Angel dropkick, and she adds a casadora bulldog for the win.

3: Silueta works fast with Seductora, ending with a dropkick to send her to the apron and a slow 619 kick to the back. Dark Angel runs circles (and dances) around Tiffany until Tiffany gets a hold of her hair. Dark Angel responds to imitation dancing by dropkicking Tiffany out. Marcela nearly sneaks in a winning casadora cradle on Comandante. Comandante responds by chokeslamming the champion for two. A second chokeslam is reversed into a second casadora cradle, but Comandante blocks that for a sit down pin. Marcela cant' knock Comandante down on her own, but lets the rudas do the work for her, and a Seductora dropkick causes Comandante to lay carefully near the ropes. Seductora gets tripped up by Silueta, and Marcela does her middle rope kneedrop on the tallest ruda. Marcela planchas to the floor, Dark Angel plancha to the ring, técnicas finish up.

Tiffany and Comandante have an argument after the match, with Seductora trying to keep them apart.

Match 4: Ángel de Oro, Diamante, Hijo del Fantasma vs Euforia, Olímpico, Vangelis
Arena Mexico, 11/06/2012

  1. rudos

  2. técnicos
  3. técnicos

Winner: técnicos (2-1)
Match Time: 10:54
Rating: OK.
Notes: Referee is Maya.

1: Pairs are Angel de Oro/Vangelis, Diamante/Olímpico, Fantasma/Euforia. The last ends with a big Euforia hiptoss to the outside, and Fantasma quickly tags in Oro so he can do his outside in Moonsault. Other técnicos tag in for their finishes, but find themselves reversed into the rudos holds. Fantasma can't believe he lost, Vangelis could not be more proud of himself.

2: Angel de Oro takes a press slam and a dropkick by the rudos. Fantasma takes an odd amount of drop toe holds. Diamante doesn’t even make in. Angel de Oro is clotheslined by everyone. Rudos try whipping Fantasma into the same corner, and it backfires badly. Diamante is way late on a springboard dropkick, to send unmasked rudos out, and Dorada and Diamante fly out with tope con giros. The Phantom lariat looks good, and gets the win.

3: Showcases go Fantasma, Oro and Diamante. You'll never believe this, but Angel de Oro avoids a kick on the apron, superkicks that person, then springboard moonsaults in on them. That's never happened before, except every other Angel de Oro match. Vangelis throws himself into a wheel kick on Diamante, but ultimately pump kicks Euforia off the apron, and Diamante follows with a big springboard tornillo. For this fall, it's the rudos who's offense backfires for a técnico win.

Match Time: 16:24
Rating: ok
Notes: Diamante Azul has a new shirt. Referee is Tirantes.

1: Pairs are Terrible/Atlantis, Tonga/Azul, and Mephisto/Panther. Fall breaks down after Mephisto misses a charge and throws himself out. Terrible cuts off Panther's dive with a kick, Atlantis trips up Terrible for Azul and finishes Tonga himself.

2: Tecnicos continue to cruise, Atlantis and Azul going thru their rivals again. Mephisto strikes Panther down with a chop, and that's enough for the rudo to get control. Mephisto and Terrible kick and punch and two técnicos while Tonga is more focused on attacking Azul. Terrible lifts Atlantis up and Tonga dropkicks him down, then Terrible puts on a half crab armbar to finish him. Atlantis it eh captain, so that's it. Tong keeps choking out Diamante Azul instead of getting his arm raised.

3: Tonga batters Azul with many headbutts. Big slam and jumping elbow drop for Panther. Atlantis works in a quebradora on Terrible to start the comeback, and everyone taking out everyone ends with a Panther gut punch to Mephisto, who claims foul. Azul bashes the side of Tonga's face with punches on the outside, but the focus is on the faked foul. Panther does the punch again, just to make sure he doesn't get the call. Atlantis returns to quebradora Mephisto, and Panther dropkicks and topes him on the outside. Other four in, Atlantis flips Azul to the apron so he can come back in plancha the rudos, and Atlantis splashes them both. Técnicos try their finishes, but Atlantis' rana is blocked into a Terrible Crash, and Tonga pins Azul with a torito.

Terrible makes the tag team title challenge. Atlantis accepts for his team. Tonga says Terrible is #1, they're not, and drops the mic. Atlantis starts a Mexico chant.
