For a moment it looked like tonight’s CMLL Tuesday show would have a standout match! Then Templario slipped on the ropes and that was the end of those hopes. Still better than the Puebla show though! If you missed any of it, here’s the results.
Mercurio & Pequeño Nitro defeated Kaligua & Shockercito two falls to one after Nitro pinned Kaligua with a modified Lung Blower and Mercurio pinned Shockercito following a Package Piledriver. There have been seasons of NCIS more interesting than this match. The most interesting aspect was Kaligua looking a bit gun shy after his botch against Stukita a few weeks ago. Or maybe it was just cause he was booked to have nothing to do in this match. Either way this was dull.
Cancerbero, Metálico, Nitro defeated Pegasso, Robin, Star Jr. two falls to one after Metálico pinned Robin following a Tiger Bomb. This was better than it had any right to be and only because Robin and Star Jr. stepped up big. Star Jr. looked better than usual (especially on his tornillo) and Robin was tremendous, even sneaking in a dive at the end of the second fall. There was only so much they could do however and the match was still very much the rudo showcase it didn’t need to be.
Lluvia, Marcela, Princesa Sugehit defeated Amapola, Dalys, Reyna Isis two falls to one after Reyna Isis was DQ’d for taking off her mask and throwing it at Sugehit for an attempted DQ of the technicos. I’m not sure if that was the planned finish; it’s possible the plan was for the rudas to win with Sugehit getting DQ’d, but Reyna did this all right in front of Edgar, making it impossible for the other finish to work. Average match besides the stupid finish. All six luchadoras seemed to be giving a good effort, but the match didn’t feature enough excitement to keep it interesting and the finish nuked whatever goodwill was built up.
Black Panther defeated Dragón Rojo Jr. in a Lightning Match. The finish came at the 4 minute mark after Panther hit Rojo with a second rope Shotgun Dropkick. Black Panther replaced his father in this match. The finish definitely wasn’t the one that was planned, as Rojo kicked out of the move, only for Panther to then inexplicably pin him again while the referee made the count. It’s not clear who was at fault but both Panther and Rojo were furious after with the referee, with Panther even walking out instead of celebrating. Match was mediocre prior to the hysterically bad finish, with neither guy getting time to show anything.
Soberano Jr., Stuka Jr., Titán defeated Hechicero, Templario, Vangellys two falls to one after Stuka pinned Templario after a Stuka Splash and Titán pinned Vangellys with a Victory Roll. This was a really good match through the first two falls that came apart in the third after poor Templario slipped going for his dropkick spot. The match never quite recovered after that. Still, this was easily the best match on the show, with a great opening sequence between Hechicero and Titán and some great spots between Soberano and Templario in the second that included a Dragonrana. Could’ve been a great one if they had kept up the momentum.
Ángel de Oro, Diamante Azul, Niebla Roja defeated Ephesto, Mephisto, Rey Bucanero two falls to one after Azul pinned Mephisto with that ultra powerful armdrag of his. Solid, unspectacular main event, typical of the Tuesday show. Nothing more, nothing less. Ángel de Oro looked pretty good I suppose.
