CMLL was back in Arena Puebla tonight because Grodd has a sick sense of humor. Here’s what happened!


Asturiano & Meyer defeated King Rocker & Sombra Diabólika two falls to one after Meyer pinned Diabólika and Asturiano pinned Rocker. Compared to the usual Puebla opener this didn’t suck, with Asturiano and Rocker standing out.


Espanto Jr. & King Jaguar defeated Arkalis & Black Tiger two falls to one after Espanto pinned Tiger following a sitout powerbomb and Jaguar pinned Arkalis with a Volador Spiral. That’s right; King Jaguar hit a Volador Spiral. It was pretty much all Arkalis on that move and in this match, with the technico looking leagues better than everyone else.


Astral, Lestat, Star Jr. defeated Fuerza Chicana, Hijo del Signo, Policeman two falls to one after Lestat pinned Chicana following a Swanton Bomb and Lestat pinned Policeman after a powerbomb/neckbreaker double team from him and Star Jr. Decent match largely because of the technicos. Astral, Lestat and Star Jr. were all decent to very good and thankfully got control of the bulk of the action.


Hechicero, Máscara Año 2000, Templario defeated Rey Cometa, Rey Samuray, Stuka Jr. two falls to one after Hechicero submitted Cometa and Máscara Año 2000 submitted Rey Samuray. Another decent match. Rey Samuray looked strong against better competition than usual while Hechicero and Templario both looked excellent. It was a rough night for Rey Cometa, who slipped on the ropes in the third fall and then under rotated on a moonsault attempt, nearly landing on his head. Luckily he looked to be alright afterwards.


Ángel de Oro, Mistico, Niebla Roja defeated Cuatrero, Mr. Niebla, Sansón two falls to none after the rudos were counted out. Lots of brawling, with Mistico slamming the front row into Niebla at one point. Challenges were made for next week by the technicos, though I’m not sure if it’s for another trios match or a singles match.


Atlantis, Carístico, Euforia defeated Bestia del Ring, Rush, Terrible two falls to one after Rush unmasked Atlantis for the DQ. Atlantis, Carístico and Euforia were all unmasked after the match. Rush cut a promo before a re-masked Carístico got the mic to issue a challenge…only for Rush to pull the mask off again. So I guess there will be some sort of match involving them next week. ONLY IN PUEBLA!
