CMLL Line - 11/06/01
Rating: Bases on the quality of the finish, ring work, internal/external storyline, consistency and my whims. Also, various other (random) factors that I can't think of right now. 0-100 for matches, ++ for extremely good skit, + for really good skit, - for really bad skit, -- for extremely bad skit.
Momentum Key: T for the Tecinos in control, R for the Rudos in control, E is for even, M is for Mixed, * for Interference
Match By Match:
First Match: The Villanos wore the numbered tights this week, which was nice. Also, Mexican shirts to voice their opposition to the Boricuas. Kinda lame miss spot to cue the final babyface revenge. Viloenca took a nasty bump off a hot shot. Better than your average Boricua match, maybe the short time worked in their favor there, but not enough work to make it really good.
Second Match: Rayo had a fine looking woman with him. The outfit helped. We spent fifty seconds after the bell waiting for them to get started, then they clipped ahead all match, so I don't know what that was about. Porky hit a plancha off the apron but that was pretty much it. The reverse tope doesn't look great but maybe the fans buy it. We never see how Lizmark took Cien down, just the pin. Capos are better than my initial estimate and Jalisco is dropping down so quick.
Third Match: Guererro and Alan Stone have an issue at the arena shows but we don't see them on TV. Heck, we don't see anyone in this match all that often. The Guerrero/Stone issue was built strong throughout the first fall. First fall flowed well, especially considering the length. Rivera has nice spots. And cow pants. Pierroth Jr. isn't good - a vertical suplex for the fall? Looked like Stone landed head first on the German Suplex. Stone was oddly the one who got to start the comeback - not the captain Rivera, nor the (seemingly) elder member Fiera. Stone took control at the end at won nicely. If the second fall (and Pierroth Jr.) wasn't so basic, this would have rocked the house. Still, it's good. They advertised a hair vs hair match in the upcoming match section so that's probably why they had it get shown.
Fourth Match: Last time I saw Nosawa, he was in a Kaientai rip off facing a Jon Wayne Gacy rip off in XPW. Things have obviously improved for him. He still has XPW on his Tajiri rip off looking tights, so maybe not that much. Match seemed to be joined in progress. Nosawa was big on the funky submission holds and blatantly grabbing the ropes for leverage. Felino didn't seem to be in the best of shapes here. Nosawa used the Iconclasm and it still doesn't look convincing but it got a replay. There were some good spots near the end but it was more spots and characters than a story. Again with a big celebration over the belt being won.
That Ultimo Dragoncito missed plancha was shown again and again in the Spectacular moments and really still looks painful.
Fifth Match: Felino and Warrior invent a top rope Veg-O-Matic, which is neato. Black Tiger started the mask ripping (biting, even) on Warrior. Some nice beatdown spots make it a better beatdown. Black Tiger with triple moonsaults, Warrior gets the knees up a the end, but Tarzan Boy claims a low blow and gets the cheap win. He gets a real one after the match. With a real finish, this would have been better than the singles match.
1. The Villanos can bring out the best in anyone.
