Tonight’s CMLL Puebla show was pretty much the same as always, with one difference; there was set up. And I mean a whole lot of set up sports fans. We got set up for a big singles match next week, we got set up for another match down the line. This was set up, set up and then some more set up. I suppose it could be worse. And hey; CMLL actually followed through on a feud they’ve been building for weeks instead of changing it, a recent Puebla staple! You can’t hate on that, even if you can everything else. If you missed this show watching Monday Night Football, here’s what happened.
Black Tiger, Policeman, Sombra Diabólika defeated Fuerza Chicana, Guerrero Especial, Rencor two falls to one. I think this was the rare all rudos match from CMLL. I’ll give you three guesses how it went.
La Jarochita, Lluvia, Shoko Nakajima defeated La Comandante, Metálica, Reyna Isis two falls to one after Nakajima pinned Reyna with a roll up and Lluvia pinned Metálica with a bulldog. No Dalys made this a more interesting luchadoras match than usual, though it really only approached being fun when Nakajima was involved. She’s really good and actually had some cool sequences with Reyna Isis. The rest of the match had a bit more than usual but was nothing to write home about.
Drone, Dulce Gardenia, Stigma defeated Felino, Pólvora, Tiger two falls to one after Gardenia rolled up Felino following a kiss. This was a solid match, especially in the third fall. Action wasn’t anything special but it was fluid, crisp and very well done for what they were doing. Tiger and Drone especially looked good together, while the final Felino-Dulce sequence came off well. Stigma has been watching AAA as he tried several moves the lower card guys there do. If only he was as good as them!
Ephesto, Luciferno, Mephisto defeated Ángel de Oro, Niebla Roja, Soberano Jr. two falls to none after Mephisto pinned Roja with a Top Rope Devil’s Wings. They used that finish to set up a Roja-Mephisto match for next week, which would excitement if it were anywhere other than Puebla. Match was okay; the highlight was Los Hijos del Infiernos coming out dressed as monks. Everything else was kept simple and featured little excitement.
Carístico, Valiente, Volador Jr. defeated Euforia, Gran Guerrero, Último Guerrero two falls to one after Valiente submitted UG with a half crab. Valiente appeared to either want a trios titles match or a CMLL World Heavyweight Championship match after, but as far as I could tell no challenges were actually made. The match came and went in record time; I was actually stunned when Valiente won the match because I thought it was just the end of fall two. Basically it was another match that was more set up than match.
