Match 1: Cholo & Mortiz vs Tigre Blanco & Trueno
Arena Mexico, 01/28/2011
Winner: técnicos (2-1)
Match Time: 12:09
Rating: good Trueno night until the end
Notes: Clipped entrances. LATV is the Tigre Blanco headquarters. Rodolfo Ruiz drew this match.
1: Basic opening between Tigre Blanco and Cholo. Cholo backflips out of an elbow lock. Not the prettiest backflip ever, but who knew Cholo had it in him. Maybe he's just trying to bond with his partner. Trueno/Mortiz is equally basic. Back to the first two, and a Tigre back rope flip armdrag sends Cholo out. Blanco back roll over the top rope into a headscissors quite nicely. Trueno finishes Mortiz right away, and LATV doesn't even bother waiting for the countout.
2: Chop fight goes badly for Mortiz. Trueno tries to see how many times he can bounce off the ropes to set up a headscissors. He actually looks pretty good here, lots of agile stuff setting up an enizguri to send Mortiz out, and a backflip off the top rope to fake the dive. Cholo punches Blanco around, Blanco comes back with the usual, but then misses a dropkick in the corner and hangs himself up. Rudos get the advantage off that. Trueno fights back for a bit, but a bad Mortiz clothesline takes him down. Blanco rallies back, but ends up hitting his partner. Trueno's knees on the apron, and Mortiz gives him a moonsault side slam off the apron in the second fall of the opener. I would heavily fine him for that. Both of them! Cholo submits Tigre Blanco to finish him, though he holds on as long as possible.
3: Rudo double teams. Cholo lifts Blanco over his shoulder and Mortiz missile dropkick him off. Crowd into that. Trueno gets similar treatment. Trueno trips up Cholo on a double clothesline to start the comeback, but has problems with a run up the ropes apron headscissors on MMortiz, and it doesn't come off well even on the second try. Tigre Blanco gets his submission, and this match gets a third countout finish of the match.
Match 2: Goya Kong ©, Lluvia, Luna Mágica vs Estrellita, La Comandante, Tiffany ©
Arena Mexico, 01/28/2011
Winner: rudas (2-1)
Match Time: 15:09
Rating: parts not very good
Notes: Estrellita slowly hopes down the stairs, one at a time. She's wearing pink and blue, which works much better for her than the Tiffany-like black outfit. Referees are Tigre Hispano and Pompin.
1: Luna and Estrellita start. Most entertaining subplot of fight of this mach Estrellita versus her pants. They look nice, but they keep falling down all match. Luna shows off her technical ability, which is actually fine here, but the crowd could care less. Tiffany and Lluvia are next. Tiffany is annoying the crowd by shaking her upper body at them. An odd taunt! Lluvia is wearing white full body mesh, making her look as if she had been captured by fisherman and dragged out of the sea just before the match. She's also got very red hair this week – it looks more like Coco Roja hair than a natural color, and the white/black/red/skin combination is not working for her today. She's had better days, for sure. Rudas grab her hair from the outside to start the beatdown. Esterllita is impressed about how hard Comandante can hit people. Local affiliate cuts out for a minute when Goya Kong comes in, then returns just as she's leaving. Ha! Lluvia takes a giant spin and a big splash from Comandante. Magadan seems unaware that Comandante’s name is not “La Nazi” and has been for years now. That's Zombie Clown bad. JCR subtly corrects him a couple times, maybe too subtle. Rudas mange to take down Goya Kong to set up Tiffany's legdrop.
Dragon Rojo's promo includes a few seconds of him waiting for his cue to start talking. Same thing with an Angel de Oro promo later.
2: Tiffany gives Lluvia a face first slam out of a cristo – director is focused on Luna Mágica standing on the ramp and doing nothing. Triple faceslam for her a little later. Goya fights off all three before Comandante get in a shot and they pound her down together. Goya is too fast on a corner charge, sidestepping Comandante and spanking her as she gets hung up in the corner. The ex-AA women are so much better at reacting to the events in the match, rather than just emotionally moving from spot to spot. Lluvia/Luna boost dropkick spot is a certain fiasco even before Lluvia start running for it. Lluvia’s plancha to the floor is good, but Luna has no business trying an Asai moonsault, has a big hesitation before trying it, and doesn't really get caught by either ruda - she splits them both. Goys spinebuster Comandante and sentons her for the pin. Referees have no idea who the captain and end the fall.
3: Esterllita gets thrown around on her face. Luna sends her out with some approaching a horrible 619, but I'm not even sure she had that plan. Comandante throws Lluvia around, though Lluvia sneaks in a nice corner headscissors. Comandante misses the big splash to finisher the young tecnica off, then flips Comandante out on a corner charge. Comandante decides to pose on the apron, and Lluvia kicks her off, right into some male fans. Crowd chants for a kiss they're not getting. Tiffany and Goya have a dance contest. Spinning armdrag by Goya almost throws Tiffany out, but she stays in and gets run over. Estrellita rushes into help out. The two send Goya out with a big boot a dropkick – not exactly on the same page. Estrellita launches herself to the floor with a plancha on Goya. Lluvia lands a plancha on Tiffany and Comandante grabs her. Tiffany tries a clothesline, Lluvia ducks, but Comandante ducks too. Comandante turns to yell at Tiffany, and Lluvia knocks them into each other. Lluvia corner whip on Comandante, Comandante easily turns it around, and Lluvia accidentally missile dropkicks her partner. Easy for the rudas from there. Comandante’s Rosa on Lluvia looks easy.
