Kumbia Kids vs Ares/Muerte Subita/Mongol Chino Jr.: Blech… unfortunately this was the crappy group of Kumbia Kids with Javi, Jessy and Tee-Wee. No Kevin who is great.:( Tee-Wee is just beyond awful and the whitest Mexican I have ever seen. He wrestles how he looks though and would fit right into the CZW undercards. The only shining spot of the match was Jessy who tried but this couldn’t be saved. Lots of dives as you’d expect though nothing really crazy.
Billy Boy/El Angel/Laredo Kid vs Gran Apache/Escoria/Ozz: Pretty fun but not a great match. Billy Boy/Apache continue to absolutely RULE together! In fact I’m really feeling bad about not voting Apache as my Legend of the Year and especially about putting Negro Navarro over him. The usual fun exchanges with all these guys as you’d expect. Weird finish as it looked like Laredo Kid was supposed to attempt a pescado and Ozz was going to move but Laredo Kid must have forgotten and he crashed and burned extra harder than he was supposed to.:/ If he was just selling – that was an AWESOME sell!
Sangre Chicana and Sangre Chicana Jr. vs El Brazo and Pirata Morgan: Yeah… well… it was… okay… I guess. I’ll be nice b/c I honestly expected this to be horrific beyond words but the third fall was fun. The Chicana’s did nice dual tope suicidas with Chicana Sr. accidentally nailing a little kid at ringside and then apologizing and asking the kid to help him up. No harm, no foul I guess. Usual screwiness at the finish involving Sergio Romo Jr. doing a run-in.
La Parka Jr./Estrella Dorada Jr./Demolition vs Cibernetico/Chessman/Hator: Before the match they show a note from Shocker(typed on GUAPOS V.I.P. stationary!) explaining why he couldn’t make the show. I really wish he had come though b/c his replacement BLEW. Demolition is the same guy who played Paranoia on AAA TV in Tijuana and Mexicali. No idea why he changed names. I’m assuming it’s a SoCal guy but have no clue who it could be. Seeing him work tecnico here was odd and this show is probably what made them decide to use him as a heel. He tried hard but a guy his size and doing his moves should not be a tecnico. I was scared for Chessman’s life when he had to catch the dude doing a wild tope suicida.:/ Chessman can survive anything now – IT’S OFFICIAL! Estrella Dorada Jr. and Hator worked well together but they really have no excuse not to as they’ve been working together since they were kids(they’re brothers). It sucks Estrella joined AAA and then left so quickly. He looks like he has a lot of potential and would have been great instead of Scorpio Jr. for the Guapos V.I.P. vs Secta feud.
Alright show but I expected way more from the opening two matches.
