Match 1: Leono & Molotov vs Disturbio & Zayco
Arena Mexico, 01/21/2011
Winner: técnicos (2-1)
Match Time: 11:44
Rating: ok for what we saw
Notes: Rudo entrances are weirdly edited. This is not a crowd that decided to get here early, no. Bestia Negra is your ref.
1: Rudo fans start a chant at the whistle. Disturbio and Leono are both wearing mostly black with the same shade of red, totally looking like tag partners as they face off. Zayco's wearing black and red too, so maybe it's just Molotov looking like an outcast with his white and red. Mostly uninteresting mat work from both sides. Leono and Disturbio takes a second stab at it, with Molotov interrupting to armdrag Disturbio out and following with a nice superman plancha dive. Leono's headscissors into an armbar is less than convicting. Announcers actually pick up on the countout.
2: Leono gives Zayco a monkey flips, which goes fine. Things after that do not go fine, as they're on separate pages until Leono just superkicks the rudo. Leono poses, then stands around sure if they're going to continue. They're not. JCR sees all the long haired unmasked rudos as the same guy. Molotov armdrags Disturbio all over the place, headscissors sends him out. Back to Zayco and Leono again. Leono kips up to escape a corner charge, then has to stand in place for about five seconds as Disturbio climbs to the top rope and 'surprises' him with a missile dropkick. Zayco Spin to finish Leono. An equally weird finish out of Disturbio.
3: Beatdown. Clip here. Rudos jump feed themselves into submission moves.

Notes: For this match, entrances have the sound removed and overdubbed with generic music because they can't use that music. You can really just cut the entrances at some point, you can still find a way to show the women, you seem to do it on 52MX. Bigger concern is no one's made a Rey Cometa video (or maybe he just shares one with Pegasso.) Refs are Maya and Terror Chino, who I've been calling Babe Richard most the time lately.
1: Announcers talking about this big debut for Signo, who was on the show last week. Thanks anyway. Dragon Lee, who has a scary mask to take off before his normal mask, looks like a thinner, lighter, younger version of Dragon Rojo. I'm going to confuse their names way too often. Skándalo does the agile spots better than Dragon Lee when they work together, and you may need two Dragon Lee's to total up to Skandalo's weight. More spots with Loco Max, and Locos lows him down with a big clothesline. Azteca literally jumps in with an armdrag to bail his partner out. Azteca battle to a near leg lock on Loco, so Signo breaks that up with a flying sunset flip and bridge. One two no. Battling zero leg trips lead to Azteca doing what he does (armdrag) and Signo booting him. Azteca slide out to set up a Cometa missile dropkick. Big man back in, Cometa gets him with a backflip headscissors (Palacio Negro like!) Crowd cheers, and Cometa flattens Skándalo with a picture perfect tornillo. Fall is interrupted and I never quite see the end.
2: Signo looks confused at Azteca's flipping around, but mostly just stands there blanks and looks while Azteca is doing it. Azteca communicates thru armdrags. Dragon Lee's jumping heel kick need some work. He does some things well, he's got a neat springboard kick off armdrag, but he's hitting at about a 50% rate. Skandalo's senton this corner after a jumping enziguri. Loco Max and Cometa are wrestling, but announcers are talking about Místico and I'm thrown. Cometa dismisses Loco, but Signo flips him with a clothesline, and Skandalo trips Cometa when he tries to climb to the top rope. Beatdown from there. Two man super powerbomb, Signo top rope splash, that'll do for him. Dragon Rojo storms in and slaps Loco Max down, but Signo is able to contain him. Whip, Loco flips Dragon Lee, Dragon Lee stays in the ring instead (???) Loco dropkicks him and Dragon Lee rolls out. Aztec back in, sent right into the Skándalo Driver. That's the fall.
Interview with Diamante is subtitled “Rush”. Fine work!
3: Loco Max spears Azteca good. Cometa walks in and grabs Signo in a headlock before the Tuareg guys realize enough to stop stomping Azteca. Cometa lands on his feet off a rope flip hiptoss, but Signo and Loco stomps him down. Rudos hold him, and Skándalo dropkicks him questionably low. Dragon Lee takes some shots. Press slam into raised knees for him. Azteca flips over a double backdrop, and Loco Max take a double clothesline for his partners. Azteca runs by the rudos to knock Loco over with a tope. It was almost more on a flying shoulderblock with the way Azteca turned into it. Flying armdrags for the other técnicos on the other rudos. Cometa slides out to chase Signo on the outside, which sadly leaves Skándalo alone with the rookie. Skándalo immediately attempts to kill Dragon Lee – package piledriver. Near the ropes, but Skándalo pulls Dragon Lee's appendages away towards the center. One two three.
Azteca in and missile dropkicking Skándalo. Corner whip, Azteca follows in with a clothesline, Comet helps spreads his legs, and Azteca lands Skandalo's own low blow dropkick. Cometa top rope 450 splash, one two three
Next fall ends it. Signo ducks a double clothesline, and is boosted into a dropkick on Cometa. Signo whipped, right into a tope on Cometa. Loco in with a plancha on Azteca. Azteca takes him down on the next pass, and does a bad spin into a reverse figure four. Loco easily gets the ropes, which is a good thing. Loco Max spear, legs tied around his body, spinning around on his midsection. Azteca gives to the inverted bodyscissors. Loco Max takes his time letting go. Anti-climatic finish to end it.
