After so much fun with AAA this weekend, tonight’s CMLL Puebla brought us back down to earth. And it was actually a better show than normal in Arena Puebla, which just goes to show you how the show is usually. I’ll give CMLL this much at least; they didn’t just spend two weeks shoehorning an unnecessary story arc into what was their hottest feud, unlike some people. I swear, you could give Vince McMahon The Godfather script, cast and crew and he’d find a way to turn it into The Sicilian. But enough movie talk. If you missed Puebla tonight, here’s what happened.
Espíritu Maligno, Fuerza Chicana, Policeman defeated Hijo del Centella Roja, Rey Samuray, Sonic two falls to one
Amapola, La Comandante, La Seductora defeated La Vaquerita, Lluvia, Princesa Sugehit two falls to one. La Vaquerita is in fact alive! That’s nice to know.
Kawato San, Okumura, Sagrado defeated Drone, Fuego, Guerrero Maya Jr. two falls to one after Sagrado pinned Drone after a powerbomb that somehow nearly killed both of them. Let’s just say it involved them hitting the ropes and Sagrado nearly falling out of the ring. Match was actually fun up to that point, with everybody putting a decent effort and both Kawato and Maya looking good. No one will remember this because of the death powerbomb.
Atlantis, Atlantis Jr., Vangellys defeated Hijo del Villano III, Último Guerrero, Villano IV two falls to one after UG fouled Vangellys for the DQ. Could they possibly be setting up UG-Vangellys? PLEASE NO! Match was the homeless man’s version of what we’ve been getting in Arena Mexico between the Atlantis’ and the Villanos.
Rush defeated Cuatrero two falls to one after Rush pinned Cuatrero following a Rush Driver. This may have been the best Puebla main event in a few months. Rush, even after wrestling nonstop over the last few days, gave a full effort and clicked very well with a game Cuatrero. The only problem with the match was Tirantes’ usual mugging; otherwise this was quite good.
