It has been an interesting two weeks to say the least…
Missed the 12/15 show as I was completely out with the flu. I rarely ever get sick and this just destroyed me. It wasn’t until YESTERDAY that I actually ate three actual meals in the same day…
Missing last week’s show was more from being tired. The night before we were in Nashville watching the Montreal Canadiens lay waste to the Nashville Predators. As we left, the tornado siren starts going off, so we floored it. Got about 30 mins outside of Nashville when it started to catch up, so we pulled off in Murfreesboro to ride it out. That was my first tour of McDonalds as at one point we were rushed to the freezer when the storm was out of control. Waited it out and left. Somehow caught up with the storm, then drove THROUGH it. Didn’t get home until like 5am, so I was pretty much a zombie the rest of the day…
But i’m here and back for the last Arena Mexico show of 2013.. I may skip the first, but we’ll see…
Opening with an in ring promo from Bobby Zavala. Huge crowd tonight.
5. Volador Jr. (captain), Shocker & La Mascara def. Negro Casas, Mr. Niebla (captain) & Felino
Peste Negra accompanied by Perrito Zacarias…
Fall #1: Negro Casas jumped Volador Jr. as he came out, so thankfully that will continue. Volador Jr. pinned Mr. Niebla with a back cracker to take the first.
Fall #2: Volador Jr. was actually hearing some boos tonight. Rudos even it when Mr. Niebla pinned Shocker after a splash off the top and Felino pinned Volador Jr. after an elbow off the top.
Fall #3: Mr Niebla with a first, an abdominal stretch on La Mascara with use of his jockstrap. Mr. Niebla also got his spit spot in before taking a plancha from Volador Jr.. Shocker submitted Felino while Shocker submitted Negro Casas with la campana.
4. Maximo, Valiente (captain) & Brazo de Plata DQ Kraneo (captain), Morphosis & Pierroth
Sigh… My prediction is this one is going to suck… Pierroth accompanied by Pierrothito and very little in ring talent. Kraneo, dressed as Darth Vader, accompanied by Mije dressed as Yoda.
Fall #1: Rudos take the first when Pierroth pins Maximo with an elbow drop that looked more like he fell over and Kraneo pinned Valiente after pressing Mije on to him. Next fall has to end with Brazo de Plata splashing and pinning the entire rudo team.
Fall #2: Moving it to the third fall? Maximo pins Pierroth after a kiss (which means Maximo likes really old guys?) and Valiente submitted Morphosis.
Fall #3: Brazo de Plata hit a plancha off the apron on to Kraneo. Poor Kraneo. Maximo with a tope on Pierroth and Valiente hit a BEAUTIFUL triple jump moonsault on to Morphosis on the floor. Brazo de Plata sat on Kraneo for the pin, got up to sit on him, and Kraneo smacked him in the crotch for the foul. I would argue it since there’s a lot of fat to pass before it should be a foul.. Crowd was into the match, i’m putting that on my list of mysteries…
3. CMLL Womens Title: Marcela def. Princesa Sugheit
Marcela was accompanied by Robin, while Princesa Sugheit was accompanied by Apocalipsis. Marcela goes for her 10th defense.
Fall #1: Marcela went for a plancha off the ring apron and let’s just say if this was baseball, Princesa Sugheit wouldn’t be a good catcher. Marcela submitted Princesa Sugheit to take the first.
Fall #2: Princesa Sugheit evens it up with a Michinoku Driver.
Fall #3: I thought it was a good third fall with both going back and forth hitting big moves for two counts. Marcela wins with a Michinoku Driver to retain the title.
2. Fuego, Guerrero Maya Jr. (captain) & Sagrado def. Bobby Zavala, Shigeo Okumura & Virus (captain)
Fall #1: Rudos get the first when Bobby Zavala pins Guerrero Maya Jr. after a splash off the top.
Fall #2: Technicos even it when Sagrado submits Virus.
Fall #3: Technicos take it when Guerrero Maya Jr. pins Shigeo Okumura with a rana and Fuego submits Bobby Zavala.
1. Apocalipsis & Cholo def. Bengala & Robin
Fall #1: Rudos take the first when Apocalipsis submits Robin and Bengala is counted out.
Fall #2: Technicos even it when Robin pins Apocalipsis with a swanton bomb and Bengala submits Cholo.
Fall #3: Rudos take it after I walked away for a minute… :)
