CMLL TV 3/8/08:
Alex Koslov/Marco Corleone/Valiente vs. Olímpico/Rey Bucanero/Universo 2000: Very entertaining match with a weird mix of guys. Maybe that’s what made it so entertaining. Fast-paced action for the most part. Valiente hit an awesome bullet tope suicida in the first fall. Bucanero low blowed Corleone as he went for a top-rope frankensteiner which began the rudo domination in fall two. Universo almost lost Koslov on a power bomb attempt and he dropped him onto Corleone. Quemonito (minus the Maximo gimmick) got abused big time after the pinfall including Bucanero spinning him around like a top! *LMAO* BEST SPOT EVER! Total youtube material. Third fall was joined right at the tecnico comeback which led right to a dive sequence. Koslov with a running somersault plancha OVER Bucanero, Universo with a tope suicida, Valiente with the Valiente Special II, Olimpico with a springboard somersault plancha, Corleone with his Superman Dive to the floor and Quemonito with a plancha off the apron to stop Bucanero from beating the count into the ring so the tecnicos took the match!
Dos Caras Jr./LA Park vs. Atlantis/Último Guerrero [torneo, semifinal]
El Hijo del Perro Aguayo/Villano V vs. Blue Panther/Dr. Wagner Jr. [torneo, semifinal]
El Hijo del Perro Aguayo/Villano V vs. Dos Caras Jr./LA Park [torneo, final]
The above was all part of a quick tag tournament obviously. I have no idea why they needed to run this aside from getting all the names onto the show without booking extra guys to make it trios matches. Each match stunk with the only highlight being Dos Jr. nailing Parka with one of the hardest tope suicidas I’ve ever seen and Parka flew back so fast that he injured some guy in the second row. Perrito low blowed Dos Jr. after a ref bump to win the tournament for his team.
Momentos was all repeats.
Héctor Garza vs. Averno: Garza came out first followed by Averno except while Garza was trying to get at that Averno, ANOTHER Averno attacked him from behind. Now Babe Richard must be one smart dude b/c even though both Averno’s were dressed alike and were indistinguishable – he went straight for the Averno who made the entrance and told him to go to the back. How did he know that wasn’t the real Averno?:) Match itself was pretty disapointing although much of that can be attributed to Garza ripping Averno’s mask so viciously in the first fall that almost his entire face was exposed and he couldn’t do anything since he was holding his mask in place throughout their spots. Garza took the first fall and then Averno left to get a new mask. Second fall wasn’t much better. They did ANOTHER REF BUMP and Garza had Averno pinned but Perrito ran out. Garza fought off Perrito and then nailed Averno with his tornillo off the top for the win. Perrito ran away from Garza post-match.
The top matches on this show really stunk up the joint so I wouldn’t reccomend this show. The opener was good though and if you can pick this show up with the GdR episode that covered this show – you get a pretty good package.
