CMLL 11/5/05 (11/1 & 11/4/05)
Written By Robert Bihari
Marcela/Sahori/India Sioux vs Amapola/Hiroka/La Nazi: VERY GOOD! VERY FUCKING GOOD! Sorry Henrik, you’re still my buddy but this was VERY FUCKING GOOD! This was my favorite women’s match since the first trios match they had at Arena Mexico. I remember seeing India Sioux in the Torneo for the CMLL Women’s Title shot and thinking she wasn’t so good and reminded me too much of the awful mid-90′s CMLL ladies who really couldn’t do anything but she proved me totally wrong in this match. She might be my new favorite luchadora after her performance here. Wait, that’s wrong… La Amapola is still my favorite. She was the second best performer in this match and took some amazing bumps. Marcela and Hiroka looked good as usual. La Nazi looked the best she ever has and I was very impressed at how a couple of times the tecnicas were getting a little out of control with their spots and Nazi just slowed them down so the match wouldn’t fall apart. That’s the sign of a good ruda. Sahori looked the worst of the six but even she looked good. So yeah… this was good, you should all look forward to seeing it. I liked it better than the Hooligan match on 10/29. Yes, I feel dirty saying that.:) But it’s OK b/c India Sioux is HOT!
Gronda visited the doctor. It wasn’t a funny skit which made me sad.
Ultimo Dragon/Mistico/El Hijo Del Pierroth/Sagrado vs Atlantis/Gedo/Maximo/El Mephisto: Yeah… this sucked too. Once again battle royale was skipped and the match was joined in progress with Salsero doing a backflip and a running somersault plancha onto Gedo. How is Salsero working a semi-main event at Arena Mexico? What does he know about Pierroth? Or how much money does he owe Pierroth? Mistico did NOT look sharp at the start of this one but got better in the later stages of the match. He tried a slingshot frankensteiner to the floor on Mephisto and wow did he ever fuck it up big time. Ultimo and Gedo had this long exchange that was alright. Sagrado eliminated Maximo with a head and arm suplex dropping Maximo right on his head leading to about 10 security members and 2 doctors entering the ring to remove Maximo. That’s a pretty weird move to be using as your finisher on the harder Mexican rings. It came down to Mistico vs Mephisto/Atlantis naturally and after taking two boots to the face trying an asai moonsault dive and getting hit with Mephisto’s finisher immediatly afterwards… Mistico kicked out at two. O…k…a…y. He then hit La Mistica right away and Mephisto tapped. O…k…a…y. Mistico had Atlantis beat but Ultimo Guerrero’s distraction allowed Atlantis to recover and win. Santo did a run-in afterwards and the four guys brawled. Huge heat!
Momentos had a very special return… the return of… ARENA COLISEO CLIPS!!!:o Danger did an AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWESOME springboard plancha onto ARTILLERO! More on him later. Lizmark did a plancha onto Olimpico. Back to Arena Mexico as Pequeno Violencia squashed Bam Bam with a flying senton. Metro making Mazada submit to the Swastika rounded out the new clips.
Pierroth/Ultimo Guerrero/Universo 2000 vs Perrito/Damian 666/Halloween: Los Perros Del Mal debuted their new official theme music which I must have but will probably never get.:( Universo came out first and was ambushed and nailed with a Damian tope suicida. Ultimo was next to get destroyed. Finally Pierroth came out and got beat up and bloodied. Perros Del Mal were DQ’ed in the first fall for excessive violence. Universo’s team made a comeback in the second fall. Guerrero did an awesome plancha onto Damian. Perrito went up top but Universo low blowed and pinned him. I liked the match the week before better.
El Hijo Del Santo/Dr. Wagner Jr./Dos Caras Jr. vs Canek/Rey Bucanero/Tarzan Boy: Joined in progress after the entrances and before you can say “wow that ring girl is hot”, Bucanero with the Bucanero Driver on Santo to win the first fall. Tecnicos rebound to take the second fall. Canek was looked soooooooooo bad. He almost paid for it too as he could barely get off his feet for a vertical suplex at the end of the fall causing Wagner to dump him on his head. Wagner didn’t seem to care and trust me, I doubt many people did. Canek needs to pull an Anibal and fast! Third fall was longer than usual but everyone seemed to be working slower than usual so I didn’t know what to make of it. Canek didn’t even try to catch Wagner’s usual somersault dive off the apron.
Pretty good episode with the best match being the opener.
