I didn’t get to see much of the first three matches on tonight’s CMLL Puebla show, on account of Vladimir Guerrero Jr. being the truth, the whole truth AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH! Even still I did manage to see who won those matches, AND I caught the last three matches on the show. Thus you still get the results of a Puebla show that wasn’t all that bad. If you too were captivated by the 2019 Home Run Derby, here’s what happened.
Black Tiger & Sombra Diabólika defeated Astro & Meyer two falls to one.
Halcón Suriano Jr. & Sonic defeated Espíritu Maligno & Rey Apocalipsis two falls to one.
Cancerbero, Policeman, Raziel defeated Eléctrico, Millenium, Pegasso two falls to one.
El Perverso defeated King Jaguar in a Lightning Match after pinning him with a roll up while using the ropes for leverage. No time was given as the clock has been turned off for Lighting Matches. A far, FAR better match than I expected. Both guys are clearly invested in this feud and tried hard, with both even getting a rare dive. It wasn’t necessarily a good match; Perverso’s offense can be weak and King Jaguar is clumsy, but they did enough to make this watchable and should again for their upcoming Apuesta match. That’s right; we’re getting Perverso-Jaguar, hair vs. hair. It’s like Wagner vs. Blue Demon Jr., except nowhere close.
Dragón Lee, Mistico, Soberano Jr. defeated Euforia, Gran Guerrero, Negro Casas two falls to one after Casas fouled Soberano for the DQ. By Puebla standards this was a very good match. It came after a brief tribute for Paco Alonso so you knew these six (especially Casas) would be working harder than usual. They were limited for time and Lee and Mistico’s double teams weren’t as sharp as usual, but there was still a lot of good action, especially from Casas and Soberano late in the match. The finish suggests more between the two, which I will never complain about.
Bestia del Ring, Rush, Terrible defeated Cuatrero, Forastero, Sansón two falls to one after Bestia pinned Forastero with a second rope senton and Terrible pinned Cuatrero with a Shotgun Dropkick. This was probably better than I’m giving it credit for, but the match just never clicked for me and the ending was ultra rushed and out of nowhere. The biggest issue was both teams tried to turn this into an all out, all moving brawl and it just didn’t seem to work. They’ll get another chance at least, as Los Ingobernables challenged for a Trios Championship shot and the Dinamitas accepted. Guess we’ll have that to go along with Perverso and Jaguar.
