I have NO IDEA where Fredo found this but I hope he finds more from said place.
Ringo Mendoza/Hombre Bala/Gran Cochisse vs El Supremo/Enfermero Jr./Talisman: Ringo is just one of those guys who has never impressed me. Even in this match when he was supposed to be in his prime… well okay not really in his prime but he was something like 35 at the time so he should still have been able to go… anyways, he STILL REALLY SUCKED! Dude just can’t go. Everything he does is so basic. He was the worst worker in this match by far. Bala looked awesome though. I need more footage of him. Cochisse and Enfermero Jr. feuded which was the main story of the match. Talisman once again stole the show though. Awesome bump in the first fall that I’ve never seen before. FIND ME MORE TALISMAN FOOTAGE ALFREDO! The finish of the second fall was awesome as Bala has Supremo pinned with a rolling reverse cradle but Enfermero Jr. jumps on Bala to pin him at the same time. As he is celebrating though, Cochisse jumps on him and makes him submit to the Cavernaria for a huge pop. I got a little confused at this point though b/c I swear the tecnicos also won the first fall so in theory the match should have been over 2-0 but they kept wrestling.:/ I’ll have to re-watch b/c maybe I fucked up but I’m pretty sure the tecnicos won fall one.
Tony Salazar/Halcon Ortiz/Cien Caras vs Satanico/Colosso Colosetti/Herodes: The announcer kept calling Colosetti – “Benetto” but it definitely wasn’t Benetto. I NEED MORE COLOSO COLOSETTI! He was unreal! He had a serious look on his face the entire match and didn’t even bother locking up with Cien Caras or Halcon Ortiz, he just walked right up to them and grabbed them in some hold. Then on the mat he refused to stay still and made them fight to keep up with what he was doing. Oh man… it was a thing of beauty. Cien really impressed me as he was the only one who could somewhat keep up with Colosetti. They had good chemistry. Salazar never got in the ring with Colosetti which is a shame b/c it would have been… ummm… interesting… and I’ll leave it at that. Herodes was his usual awesome self, taking rolling bumps to perfection and making Halcon Ortiz look good. The finish was funny and innovative at the same time. I really liked this.
Alright Jose (SHOUT-OUT TO JOSE FERNANDEZ!!! WHERE ARE YOU?!?!?!?!), new non-welterweights dream 80′s match…
Herodes/Coloso Colosseti/Tony Benetto vs Stuka/Cien Caras/MA2K.
