CMLL 'Sin Salida' - 6/6/10 @ Arena Mexico

So the lineup for (presumably) CMLL's biggest show of the summer came out today and thanks to copy/paste I can easily grab it from Cubsfan:

CMLL (SUN) 06/06 Arena Mexico
1) Bam Bam & Shockercito vs Pequeño Damian 666 & Pierrothito
2) Metro, Rush, Stuka Jr. vs Histeria, Maniaco, Monsther
3) Hijo del Fantasma, La Máscara, Shocker vs El Alebrije, Olímpico, Psicosis
4) Máscara Dorada, Místico, Mr. Águila vs Averno, Negro Casas, Volador Jr. [Relevos Increíbles]
5) Brazo de Plata, Rayo de Jalisco Jr., Strong Man vs Giant Benard, Máscara Año 2000, Universo 2000

Couple of thoughts immediatly jump out...

1. The 'Sin Salida' name is usually used due to a cage match being the main event. Get it? No escape. You will take note there is no cage match on this show. Perhaps it's time to come up with some different show names or go back to what they did in 2002 and just use 'Juicio Final' 3 times in 1 year!

2. That main event isn't going to convince anyone to skip Triplemania. Even combined with the semi-main event. It also provides the AAA guys lots of material to bash CMLL and make them look awful in the press. Question: What is CMLL always accused of? Answer: Being stuck in the past and never changing. That main event gives plenty of ammo for the top AAA officials to prove CMLL is behind the times. 'La Nueva Era' on this night will feel a lot like 10+ years ago. Not good. Not good at all.

3. I guess I'm alone here but I find it absolutely idiotic that this feud has been built as CMLL vs Independents and on the first major show built around the feud the top two matches... ARE CMLL WRESTLERS TEAMING WITH INDEPENDENT WRESTLERS!!! Seriously? Nobody has a problem with that except me? I'm sure that twist was coming down the road but did we really expect it on the first show? The main event at least makes sense b/c Rayo showed up to SUPPORT CMLL. But that semi-main event is just dumb. Why would Mistico and Dorada want to team with an outsider? How is it Relevos Incriebles if there is no outsider on the other team? The bookers have been using the 'Relevos Incriebles' match as a crutch the entire year (starting with the January tag tournament) and are clearly determined to run it into the ground as fast as possible.

The first four matches should be very good although I think the semi-main event will be more angle than anything resembling a ****+ match. Monito/Cuije will clearly get their moment in the tercera which should be the highlight of that match.

Quick predictions:

1. It's still possible the cage match with the undercarders somehow gets added to this show. I'd say it's a good possibility since nobody involved got a match on the undercard and I want to believe deep down that CMLL is still using the name 'Sin Salida' for a good reason.

2. Mr. Aguila gets a severe beatdown following the semi-main. Maybe the Volador Jr. rudo turns kicks in and he tries to save Aguila?

3. Main event will end in a DQ. When I initially read the card I was very curious as to who could possibly be doing the job and after thinking it over I'm pretty sure it will end in a DQ for a low blow. Don't get me wrong... I don't think that's the way to go. But that is the typical CMLL way and they *WILL* fuck this show/angle up by ending it on a low note with a horrible match ending without a pinfall.
