Tonight’s CMLL Tuesday show was a show. What more needs to be said than that sports fans? If you missed this doing more interesting things, here were the happenings.
Leono & Metatrón defeated El Cholo & Príncipe Odin Jr. two falls to one after Leono submitted Príncipe Odin and Metatrón pinned Cholo with a roll up. This match felt like it went eons…by the end of fall two. Then it went on for another fall!
Dalys, Metálica, Reyna Isis defeated La Jarochita, La Maligna, Sanely two falls to one after Dalys pinned Jarochita with La Casita. If you thought the first match was long then wait till you see the first fall of this match; Kenneth Branagh’s cut of Hamlet was shorter! This was better than the first match but not by much, with a lot of sloppiness and dull moments.
Drone, Fuego, Rey Cometa defeated Sagrado, Universo 2000 Jr., Vangellys two falls to one after Cometa pinned Vangellys with a second rope moonsault. A solid yet sloppy outing. All three technicos had good moments, particularly a nice synchronized corner dive sequence from Drone and Fuego, but they didn’t do enough overall to make things too exciting. Cometa had an off night, particularly at the finish where he slipped and had to improvise instead of going for his usual 450. The only notable rudo in this match was Universo 2000 Jr., who appears to be improving more so than he had been.
Guerrero Maya Jr. defeated Luciferno in a Lightning Match at the 7:38 mark with a roll up. A decent match! I’m not sure it could be anything better than that but Luciferno put his best effort forward and Maya was his usual solid self, if a bit toned down. Unfortunately for both guys the best struggle in this match was between Maya and his mask; the mask briefly fell off early in the match (though they were able to avoid the DQ) and was coming off again when Maya got his roll up victory. Always keep your mask tied kids.
Hechicero, Máscara Año 2000, Mr. Niebla defeated Flyer, Kráneo, Stuka Jr. two falls to one after Niebla pinned Kráneo with a second rope Senton and MA2K submitted Flyer. Other than Máscara Año 2000 submitting a dude forty years younger than him (and Máscara Año 2000 being in this match) this was surprisingly alright. Hechicero had a strong night and had yet another good set of sequences with recent rival Stuka, while the Mr. Niebla/Kráneo sequences were mostly entertaining. Flyer was fine.
Atlantis, Diamante Azul, Valiente defeated Cuatrero, Forastero, Sansón two falls to one after Forastero unmasked Azul for the DQ. Grodd help us if CMLL is actually building towards Forastero and Diamante Azul; fortunately the post match indicated that that’s not the case or, if nothing else, it won’t happen or a few weeks. Small miracles. Match was nothing special. Just like this show!
