RECAP: CMLL En Busca de Un Idolo 6/23/15

CMLL En Busca de Un Idolo 6/23/15 Written By Alfredo Esparza Still no standout match in the tournament. This week’s show featured Brazo de Plata/Super Porky as a guest judge and he combined some comedy with some actual legit criticisms for the participants. Boby Zavala appears to be the guy who might pull away from the rest as he’s shown great charisma and has done well in the ring. Reminder... [Read more]

RECAP: CMLL En Busca de Un Idolo 6/19/15

CMLL En Busca de Un Idolo 6/19/15 Written By Alfredo Esparza Still not a stand-out match that compares to last year’s best matches. I haven’t seen that same fire to start a match like last year. Guys are taking the judges suggestion of adding matwork to mean they should do it as soon as the bell rings and do it for 3-4 minutes. That’s fine in a long match, but these are 10-minute... [Read more]

RECAP: CMLL En Busca de Un Idolo 6/16/15

CMLL En Busca de Un Idolo 6/16/15 Written By Alfredo Esparza This past Tuesday’s CMLL show featured the ongoing En Busca de Un Idolo tournament. I thought Guerrero Maya Jr. vs. Boby Zavala has been the best match so far in the tournament. That said, it probably wouldn’t crack the top 5 from last year’s loaded tournament. Judges continue to comment that they don’t see the fire... [Read more]

CMLL En Busca de Un Idolo 6/12/15 Written By Alfredo Esparza Friday night had the best match out of the first six in the tournament. The obvious biases from the judges truly came out during this show and we may have lost Tirantes as he gave an average performance a 10. The judging this week was bad. Shocker at one point was checking his phone. The funniest part is if you notice Shocker & Tirantes... [Read more]

CMLL En Busca de Un Idolo 6/9/15 Written By Alfredo Esparza There is a song lyric that perfectly tells what it was like watching Tuesday’s En Busca de Un Idolo matches.

The only thing that’s real. It... [Read more]

CMLL En Busca de Un Idolo 6/5/15 Written By Alfredo Esparza En Busca de Un Idolo finally started on Friday (6/5) with a pair of matches. Very disappointing start to this year’s tournament compared to last year. Just a reminder for those who may have forgotten about this annual event. This is the 4th edition of the tournament.
