CMLL 9/4/09 & IWRG 8/13/09

CMLL 9/4/09:

Momentos had two clips of undercard stuff: Delta's big moonsault dive and Stuka's flying splash on Loco Max which looked all sorts of painful.

Dark Angel/Marcela/Lluvia vs Hiroka/Princesa Sujei/Princesa Blanca: Decent match with harder work than usual since the women were working higher up than they were used to. Lluvia just keeps dragging matches down any time she enters the ring though. Really wish she'd just get sent to LLF to hang out for a year and get some ring experience before being brought back. Also, she has a giant ass. So she either has to trim down so she can actually move or she'll keep barely being able to throw a dropkick. Blanca made Dark Angel submit clean.

Maximo/Mascara Dorada/Valiente vs Dragon Rojo Jr./Misterioso II/Sangre Azteca: Televisa ruined this match. Any time cool stuff was being done... the camera panned as far away as possible or they cut to the guy filming from the crowd who would walk ever so slowly to ringside. YOU CAN'T SEE SHIT FROM THAT ANGLE! WHAT THE FUCK?!?!?!!? MEXICANS ARE ANNOYING! LIKE LITTLE FUCKING CHILDREN WHO ARE AMAZED BY A YO-YO! IT'S THE YEAR 2010 - FANCY CAMERA ANGLES AND SLO-MO REPLAYS HAVE BEEN AROUND FOR 30 FUCKING YEARS OR MORE! JOIN US ANY TIME NOW! FUCK! Well at least Dorada's mask was awesome and he debuted his version of the Aero Star invented dive that became perfected and known as the Dorada Especial II.

Shocker/La Sombra/Volador Jr. vs Efesto/Terrible/Texano Jr.: Passable match although again had moments ruined by the fucking camerawork and production. WE DON'T FUCKING NEED A SPLIT-SCREEN WHEN TWO GUYS ARE DOING DIVES THAT YOU CAN SEE IN ONE CAMERA SHOT! Tecnicos went over.

Mistico vs Negro Casas: Mistico was great here. Negro not so much. I did get a chuckle out of the first fall finish b/c I remember Cesar going crazy in his live report saying NEGRO CASAS JUMPED OFF THE TOP ROPE AND MISTICO CAUGHT HIM! HE CAUGHT HIM! AND THEN SLAMMED HIM DOWN! WHAT STRENGTH! When in reality Casas barely jumped off the top and Mistico was only two feet away so it wasn't much of a catch. Like a 3 year old jumping into his dad's arms to learn to swim. Felino and Niebla both interfered and Mistico took care of them with garbage can shots.

IWRG 8/13/09:

Almost missed this since it aired in October and I don't like to watch stuff out of order.

Blasfemia & Heavy Boy vs. Eragon & Star Boy: Not so great but not entirely awful. Not a fan of the rudo team which right away had me disinterested and Eragon wasn't busting out his cool matwork and offense. Third fall was okay but didn't save the match.

Avisman & Gringo Loco vs. Gemelo Fantastico I & Gemelo Fantastico II: Rudos were fantastic in this with their running from the tecnicos spots and great double teaming. Gemelos didn't get to do much but to their credit put the rudos over nicely and in two straight falls. Gringo Loco's spot where he does a frog splash off the back of a Gemelo being held up by Avisman is really neat.

Barba Roja, Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Pirata Morgan Jr. vs. Black Terry, Cerebro Negro, Dr. Cerebro: Piratas attacked during the pre-match interview and TV cut right to the opening whistle where both teams were brawling. Enjoyed this much more than the match the following week. Piratas were just brutalizing their opponents with triple team moves and the comeback was very inspired with mask ripping and blood and Black Terry hitting the backcracker as good as he ever has. Match built very well and third fall was fantastic with a red hot crowd getting right into it. Piratas got the win.

Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro vs. Negro Navarro, Trauma II, Trauma II (IWRG IC Trios Titles): Excellent match! Long first fall exchange with Navarro and AK47 (I think) with them trading submissions. Navarro can get away with his style of releasing submissions b/c his entire deal is he is the veteran and just wants to show the young punks up. He can beat them at any time and just has to choose when. It's genius. This is something the young kids shouldn't be doing b/c they have no reason to be doing it other than to show off that they watch Negro Navarro matches. And at least Navarro sticks to that style all match long b/c THAT'S WHAT HE DOES. The kids just want to show off and then move onto their real moves. It's silly. Anyways... my description of this match wouldn't do it justice and instead of making wild analogies that really don't work some folks, I'll just say I highly reccomend everyone watch this. Loved the finish to death with the captain deal finally coming into play and the rudos... CHEATING! YES! CHEATING! THAT'S WHY THEY ARE THE BEST RUDO TEAM!

Excellent show.
