Bulldozer/Darling Boy/El Guerrillero vs Loco Castillo and… LOS KU KLUX KLAN I Y II!!!: Everyone will be happy to know Los KKK’s were not dressed like actual KKK members. Not that I think anyone would have been offended if they were. Anyways, if you attend indy shows in the U.S. regularly and understand what goes on – this is basically the match with the promoters friends who have no gear and can do a couple of cool flips but can’t throw a proper punch or take a normal bump. But at the end of the day they get to call themselves wrestlers.:) Darling Boy looked like he weighed less than me which is just INSANE! He was doing a bunch of flippy stuff that looked really awkward until he launched himself outside with a Super Quebrada and landed on his feet. Loco Castillo was actually bumping well for a no-name guy. Bulldozer was this fat dude who kept laughing at his own moves b/c he knew they were so bad. Loco Castillo did a running assisted somersault plancha. Darling Boy did a really crazy springboard corkscrew plancha near the end. I forget who won. Pretty much a mess with the odd cool spot or two. Must have been a thrill for these guys to see themselves on TV though.
Laredo Kid/Super Fly/Nemesis vs Los Diabolicos: Now here’s the REAL opener! Tecnicos have cool entrance music. Diabolics took the tecnicos apart in the first fall with brawling and triple team moves. Tecnicos fought back with their usual aerial offense. Nemesis did a tope suicida. Super Fly did an awesome running somersault plancha. Laredo Kid MURDERED Mr. Condor with a Stardust Press. Absolutely no give on the landing… he crushed the poor rudo! Doctors checked on Condor as fall three got started and the tecnicos did some more fun flying. Nemesis keeps showing flashes of brilliance but still isn’t flying like he probably could. He did a running twisting splash, then Super Fly did a frog splash and then Laredo Kid hit a weird 450 splash where he turned as he landed. I can’t wait to see him bust out the 630! He did a crazy second rope springboard tornillo onto Angel Mortal in the third fall. Rudos cheated to win. I was expecting an insane match with tons of dives but I’ll settle for a good match with a few dives. This feud just gets better and better!
Mexico women vs Japanese women: *yawn* KENTA was at ringside. Konnan, Killings and Joe did a run-in so KENTA used his flying knee move on Joe while they were on the floor. Heated brawl. Match was okay I guess… I just don’t care about the AAA women enough to say anything. I also can’t identify any of the Japanese women nor do I want to bother trying.
Intocable vs Alan Stone – Image vs Image: Really good match! Both guys were working harder than usual… or at least I thought so. Alan was doing a good job carrying Intocable. They had quite a few nearfalls in just the first fall! Stone finally won with his roll-up move. Second fall had an Intocable tope suicida and more nearfalls before Intocable won with a submission hold. Things stayed strong in the third fall with the crowd getting more and more into what was going on. Intocable nailed an asai moonsault. Shocker ended up running out and trying to cost Intocable the match. It backfired of course and Shocker ended up outside. So did Intocable. Then Alan kicked Intocable into the crowd and set up for a dive. Now let me say this… there is NO WAY IN HELL that Alan planned to hit this dive. His “KO” was definitely a work. The dive was the same as the one Rey Jr. did to Juventud back in April 1995 when he did a springboard plancha into the crowd getting them both counted out. Most of you should have seen it already as it’s all over the net and various best of Lucha Libre comp. tapes. Anyways, picture how far Rey had to jump there and DOUBLE IT!!! There is NO WAY Alan was supposed to connect on this. More proof is that as he came off the ropes, Intocable was moving away from behind the guardrail so he was gonna move no matter what. Anyways, Alan crashes face first into the guardrail and then Shocker refuses to let Intocable re-enter the ring and it’s ruled a double countout, not a no-contest as reported. Really great finish though and the match certainly lived up to expectations.
El Zorro/Pimpinela/El Angel/Rey Cometa vs Electro Shock/Charly Manson/Hator/Cassandro: WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW! Definitely the show stealer. This was just madness, especially at the end. Lots of exchanges to start off. Electro looked cool with his sub-zero look for the night. Good to see Rey Cometa moved up into a high position like this and he certainly kept impressing. Early spot of the match was him doing an asai moonsault to the outside into an armdrag on Hator! Cool spot but awful for his knees I’m sure. The Zorro/Electro stuff looked to have huge heat(I say looked b/c for some reason there was no audio on this disc…) as the crowd went nuts and all stood up when they got in the ring. Pimpi/Cassandro were great as usual. Anyways the match was awesome even during the rudo brawling and comeback but at the end things just got IN-FUCKING-SANE! First up… Angel sends Hator to the floor and does a plancha off the top getting HUGE air. Cassandro then gets on the apron and does a killer asai moonsault with such force than both Angel and Hator’s heads snap back and they crash into the guardrail! Now the fun begins. Some idiot fan decides it’d be cool to slap Angel on the arm as he lays there. Angel obviously not being in a good mood after catching that crazy dive takes offense to the fan hitting him, gets up… AND STARTS BEATING THE SHIT OUT OF HIM!!! Meanwhile Pimpi sees none of this and is already taking off for a dive. Cassandro is barely standing up to catch, Hator sees the brawl and wants to help Angel but has to choose between that or saving Pimpi’s life and thankfully helps Cassandro make the catch on a running somersault plancha. Meanwhile the brawl is still going on with Angel and the fans so Rey Cometa runs over to try and pull Angel away but then remembers it’s his turn to dive so he has to leave. Hator jumps in to try and help Angel and security fight off the fans as Cometa goes up top and does a fucking DOUBLE CORKSCREW PLANCHA!!!!!!!!!!!! Unfortunately he overshoots everyone and his last line of protection is of course… Hator… who is busy with the fan situation. So Cometa crashes HARD and looks to hurt his knee big time. Manson does a dive as well but unfortunately they felt like showing a replay of a previous dive so we missed it. This leaves Zorro and Electro. Electro completes his rudo turn here as he puts Zorro in his leglock finisher but refuses to let go even after the referee awards him the match. Hijo Del Tirantes ends up having to hit Electro with the kendo stick to force him to let go of the hold. The madness continues on the floor as Angel is visibly pissed with all the fans in the section and is being held back by security. Meanwhile Rey Cometa is just laying DEAD on the outside and nobody checks on his condition. The angle continues in the ring with Electro grabbing the kendo stick and knocking out both referees, then continuing to destroy Zorro. Now comes the beautiful When Worlds Collide moment(think Eddy/Perro/a fan)… Electro is in the middle of his angle where he is hitting everything that moves including his own partners with the kendo stick just so he can keep destroying Zorro. Security ends up pushing Angel into the ring to keep him back and Angel starts jawing with the fans from inside the ring. Electro comes up behind Angel and HAMMERS HIM WITH A KENDO STICK SHOT! Angel no-sells! He can’t even tell he is being hit! *LMAO* Electro does it again and still no reaction b/c Angel is too busy yelling at the fans! Finally Electro throws the kendo stick away and just potatoes Angel in the back of the neck with a clothesline. Angel turns around and gives Electro a “what the fuck are you doing?” look before rolling outside and storming off. Way to fuck up the Electro turn! Absolute madness and pure hilarity in the last few minutes of the match makes this a MUST-SEE! I have a new-found respect for Angel who was probably the smallest guy in the match and yet wanted to take on all the fans by himself! I will never doubt Oscar Sevilla again in my life!
Rey De Reyes: This was AAA vs TNA vs Secta vs Guapos but it was a horrible mess. I don’t want to waste too much time going over what happened b/c it was just 25-30 minutes of horrible brawling. If you are a Samoa Joe fan, make sure to not watch this match as he gets no offense and is selling weak shots from Octagon, Parka and Shocker. Konnan appeared to be quite the mess due to his injury. He did nothing the entire match except bark out instructions and then was majorly limping when he tried to put on the Tequila Sunrise. Poor guy.:/ Why doesn’t he just get the surgery already? Guapos counted out first. TNA DQ’ed second. Chessman/Octagon injured at some point. Parka tope’s Muerte Cibernetica. Vamp pins Ciber and celebrates with the crowd. I will say this… the entrances were killer and this really felt like an important match which is something AAA always does right and CMLL always does wrong.
Not as strong as Guerra De Titanes or Verano De Escandalo but still a pretty good showing by AAA. As if there was any doubt it would be.
CMLL – 3
AAA – 5
