IWRG 11/28/09 (11/8/09)
Written By Alfredo Esparza
If you read the previous IWRG review you’ll realize I skipped a week. Not on purpose. You see, on 11/21 Teleformula actually aired the 11/15/09 tapings and then the following week aired the 11/8 show. I will give them some credit for actually going out of their way to make things right.
Mike Segura b Dr. Cerebro [hair]
- This is the conclusion to the previous week’s relevos suicidas tag match. Every time I see Dr. Cerebro or Mike “Suicida” Segura go into a stip match, I think back to that bullshit suspension IWRG handed them and a couple of other regulars for working an ‘outlaw’ show. That was made worst due to IWRG actually showing up on local LA television and some of their better talent didn’t appear on those shows.
I really want to know what the songs that IWRG uses in their intro and going to commercials are. Hopefully, someone will figure that out. Gustavo Mares is MIA for this show…Cena music begins…
Dr. Cerebro comes in and he’s seconded by El Gringo Loco. Mike “El Suicida” Segura is seconded by Freelance. Someone handed El Suicida a little kid prior to the match. Bell rings and Dr. Cerebro immediately goes right after El Suicida. Suicida takes a beating in and out of the ring. At one point, Suicida is resting near a little girl and Dr. Cerebro kicks his head and I thought, “He could have had an Oh My! Moment there!” Suicida got very little offense in the first fall. Dr. Cerebro takes a very dominating first fall by forcing Suicida to submit in a version of an Indian Deathlock.
Second fall continues with Dr. Cerebro controlling the match. Lots of punches from Dr. Cerebro which he follows up with a slingshot senton onto Suicida for a pin attempt. Suicida gets sent into the corner and he’s sprawled on the bottom rope, so Dr. Cerebro delivers a dropkick and then decides to slingshot himself off the ropes onto Suicida, but Suicida moves. Suicida gets some offense in the match and then catches Dr. Cerebro with a huracanrana for the 2nd fall victory.
Third fall begins with a huge explosion! CGI explosion! Back and forth dropkicks to begin the fall. Dr. Cerebro falls to the outside and Suicda hits him with a tope suicida. A weak one considering Suicida’s reputation and previous topes at Arena Naucalpan. Suicida takes Dr. Cerebro to the stairs and DDTs him and then kicks him off the middle portion of the stairs. Announcer calls the following move a “CRUNCH~!” Let’s go with that. Suicida slams him to the mat and then drops an elbow. Folows that up with a quick pin attempt, but Doc escapes. They botch a submission spot, but the way they land you might miss it. Nice spot a few seconds later were Dr. Cerebro drops Suicida’s face on his knees for another near pinfall. Dr. Cerebro dropkicks Suicida to the outside were Gringo Loco attacks him with a few chops. Gringo Loco holds him and as Dr. Cerebro is bouncing off the ropes, Freelance catches him with a dropkick. Suicida reverses the hold and now he’s holding Gringo Loco. Freelance goes for a tope suicida, but Gringo Loco moves out of the way and Suicida takes the hit. Gringo Loco then tosses Suicida back inside the ring. Dr. Cerebro grabs him in a powerbomb and only gets a 2-count. Fans are chanting “Suicida”! Dr. Cerebro sets up Suicida for another powerbomb, but this time he bounces him off the top rope and drops him for the pin. He puts his feet on the rope. Ref starts the count, but Freelance drags the ref, El Grillo (heel ref!) to the outside. Ref argues with Freelance outside. While this is going on, Gringo Loco goes and grabs Suicida and does a pump handle slam followed by Dr. Cerebro flying off the top rope with a splash. Ref gets back in to count the pin, but Suicida kicks out. Gringo Loco comes back in, but Suicida recovers and handles the rudos with the help of Freelance. They do dives onto the rudos to the outside. Suicida and Dr. Cerebro get back in the ring were Dr. Cerebro rushes at Suicida, but gets caught in a uranage for the win.
Dr. Cerebro loses his hair for the ONE MILLIONTH time in IWRG! Actually, I think its 10th time in the last 5 years. During this recession, I can’t blame a guy getting his head shaved once or twice a year. Not only does he get a better payday, but hey, he gets a free haircut too!
Bobby Lee Jr., Jack, Olímpico b Fuerza Guerrera, Oficial 911, Pirata Morgan
- Well, no skit before this match. I’m a bit disappointed about that. Next two shows have great skits. Quick attack on Olimpico by Pirata Morgan, which gets the rest of the rudos attacking the other tecnicos. Jack with cool face paint. First fall is your basic rudo beatdown fall. Oficial 911 and Jack with a botched spot that Jack saved and looked like a weak pin.
Second fall continues the beatdown by the rudos up until Jack is able to get Pirata and Fuerza’s legs and throws them out of the ring. Jack then catches Oficial 911 in a quebradora. Tecnicos take control of this fall. Jack takes Oficial 911 up the stairs. We see Olimpico tossing Pirata Morgan on the beverage coolers. Everyone gets back in the ring were Jack and Oficial 911 pick up the pace a bit. Jack throws Oficial 911 out of the ring, but he’s immediately met by a Fuerza fist to the face! A few seconds later, Jack flips Fuerza out of the ring and does some showboating. Pirata and Olimpico in and Olimpico gains the upper-hand and dropkicks Pirata to the outside. Olimpico follows that up with a slingshot plancha onto Pirata. Bobby Lee Jr. in and shows us a little offense with a quebradora and reverse tope on Fuerza for a pin. Jack comes in and applies a Dr. Cerebro-type submission hold on Oficial 911 to win the 2nd fall.
Olimpico begins the third fall by handling all three rudos on his own. Fuerza claims he was ‘fouled’ by Olimpico. Great, we get a crowd shot and when we return to the match, the referees apparently were bumped and Pirata cheated for the win.
Olimpico makes some demands. He wants the same teams in a rematch, but in Super Libre. Pirata informs Olimpico that he’s his daddy! One thing I will say about this match was that the mix of locals and stars made the match much better. In the past IWRG would just stick all the stars in the main event and you might see guys taking the night off.
Fun show. Hair match wasn’t as good as the relevos suicidas match from the previous show.
