Arena Coliseo, 01/27/2013

Winner: Dark Angel
Match Time: 8:07
Rating: good
Notes: joined with them in the ring. Referee is Pompin.

Battling arm holds to start. Dark Angel escapes out of a snap mare, slips off Blanca, and armdrags her away for the first big crowd reaction of the show. Blanca puts an armbar back in, but Dark Angel reverses to her own shouty armbar. Step over into an armdrag to send Blanca to the ropes. Blanca pounds the mat, then runs Dark Angel over with a shoulderblock. Corner whip, reversed back the way they started, Dark Angel charges in, Blanca tries to flip her out, but Dark Angel holds on for a push off headscissors. Blanca runs at Dark Angel, Dark Angel stops her for her dance. Rebound bulldog drops Blanca on the face and causers her to roll out, and Dark Angel follows with a top rope plancha. Dark Angel almost got her legs caught underneath Blanca on that. Replay. Blanca thrown back in. Corner whip, Dark Angel charges and lands a clothesline. Snap mare, then a cradle for two. Armdrags, armbar cradle suplex (!) one two NO. Corner whip, reversed, Dark Angel to the top rope, but Princesa just shoves her to the floor. Dark Angel recovers and Princesa follows out with her corner springboard plancha. Five minute call.

Princesa hits Dark Angel as she comes back in. Whip, Blanca lifts Angel up on her shoulders, airplane spin one two NO. Slow count there, which Blanca objects too. Fireman's carry gutbuster. Dark Angel's thrown head first into the corner. Corner whip, Blanca charges in, Dark Angel kicks her away, Blanca rolls back, Dark Angel roll into a – no, Blanca running powerbomb! One two Dark Angel grabs the ropes. Blanca rakes Dark Angel along the ropes, then spins her out by her hair. Blanca very proud of her actions. Dark Angel spun by her hair again. Rudo fans chant for another. Blanca goes for the reverse figure four, Dark Angel kicks her away, but Blanca comes right back with a dropkick to the chest one two NO. Announcers not happy with the slow sped counts. Dark Angel whipped, but back with a springboard dropkick. Reinera, no, Blanca blocks it, powerslam, no Dark Angel DDT. And now she gets the reinera – Blanca done. Blanca's done before the spin, but Dark Angel does it anyway.

Dark Angel says Princesa Blanca is one of the best in CMLL, but she works hard and trains hard to beat people like Blanca. Blanca is tough, but Dark Angel got the win for her fans.

Match 2: Ángel de Oro, Delta ©, Guerrero Maya Jr. vs Averno, Black Warrior, Negro Casas ©
Arena Coliseo, 01/27/2013

  2. rudos
  3. técnicos

Winner: técnicos (2-1)
Match Time: 9:41
Rating: eh
Notes: Referee is Bestia Negra. Zacarias is with the rudos.

1: Pairs are Delta/Negro, Oro/Averno, Maya/Warrior in fast moving and técnico dominated action until Warrior gets involved. Warrior leads Maya in a chase but himself gets hit by a Oro plancha. Oro dropkick Warrior out and follows with his moonsault. Averno throws himself into a hiptoss to to the floor and Maya gives him a tope into an armdrag. Captains left in, Negro casita, Delta rolls thru and puts on a casita of his own one two three.

2: Averno takes armdrags from Oro and flees. Oro somehow gets him to come back., but Averno just teases wrestling and tags out. Warrior gives Maya the spear and then starts biting Maya's boot. Negro also has a bite. They're nice good boots, though they look like they belong to Multifacetico. Maya rallies enough to give Warrior his customary catapult into the ringpost. Crowd very excited when Delta & Negro come in, and it's not for Delta. Delta sideslams Negro for a two count, Delta armdrags and armbars Negro, Negro breaks free of front kick, heel kick, Delta screws up a missed clothesline (?), Negro dropkick to the knee, casita one two three. Rudos attack the técnicos,t hough not until after the whistle. Negro looks at Delta with much disdain, but it's Zacarias who runs over and dropkick Delta out of the ring.

Rudos beat up the técnicos between the falls, including Averno throwing a drink in Angel de Oro's face.

3: Once we see the ring, Maya barely has his mask on, just holding it by his teeth as Warrior drags him around. Warrior keeps dragging Maya, punching him, and pulling at the mask, so it's no big surprise when it finally completely comes off. Maya's face is still covered with his facepaint. Ref calls it at under 30 seconds.

Warrior pleads innocent, then just keeps the mask. Rudos beat up all the técnicos and take all their masks. Maya's face is blurred out on the replay. Maya gets a shirt to cover to his face, only for that to get ripped up as well. Negro stands on a bucket for the post match interview. Zacarias just walks around in front of the camera. Warrior says he's showed what they've capable of, Averno says this trio is great, and Negro says it was a bad move by the programming department to put those técnicos up against these rudos. Apparently so!

Fan interview.

JCC and an edecan show off a Tigre Hispano action figure. About as mobile as the real one.

Winner: técnicos (2-1)
Match Time: 11:10
Rating: ok
Notes: Referee is in fact Tigre Hispano.

1: Announcers are fascinated by the idea that Tigre Hispano has an action figure (or someone just wanted to make a ref and used the one with the different look.) Merchandising is crazy. Anyway, Dorada and Escorpion start, then we get to a point where Pólvora doesn’t want to face Valiente but Dragon Rojo doesn’t want to face Shocker. Pólvora/Shocker is the settlement, but of course Pólvora takes a shot at Valiente the first chance he gets, then runs when Valiente goes after him. Dragon Rojo attempts to reason with Valiente, Valiente is not in a mood for reasoning. Valiente and Dragon Rojo end up in, which is not good news for Dragon Rojo. Pólvora helps out with a cheap shot from the outside, and the Revolucionarios clean out the técnicos from there. (Shocker is content to stand in the corner while his two partner are being beat, but then gets pulled into the middle of it. Catapult hold, Rey Escorpion top rope legdrop, Pólvora top rope splash one two three.

Rudos slap around the técnicos on the outside, including Pólvora battering Valiente all over the place.

2: Triple dropkick to Dorada's face. Pólvora boot chokes Valiente, then sets him up on the top buckle and goes after his mask. Shocker takes Polvora's corner clothesline, but is not at all interested in dropping to a seated position to take Dragon Rojo's dropkick to the face. Valiente escapes a corner charge with a backflip, armdrags Escorpion, slides out of the way of the Pólvora senton, and Dragon Rojo – just stands stuck in the corner. I think the técnicos might have been supposed to grab him, and they eventually do. Valiente and Pólvora have a slap fight, Pólvora side steps a dropkick, Valiente stop short on a whip and dropkicks Valiente anyway. Hmmm. Pólvora doesn’t go out, Valiente starts running as if he has, then just grabs Polvora's mask. Rudos break that up, but then get beat by the remaining técnicos.

3: Pólvora and Valiente chop fight, Valiente backflip over Polvora's backdrop, but Pólvora still clotheslines him and punches him in the head repeatedly. Pólvora chops Valiente, corner whip, Valiente moves, Pólvora hits the post, Valiente Special! Dorada and Escorpion in, Dorada tossed into a 'rana one two NO. Dorada torito, one two NO. Dorada 'rana, blocked, and dropped with a sit down powerbomb, one two NO. Whip, Escorpion tirabuzón, Shocker come in to break it up but Escorpion lets go to chop him down, and chops down Dorada. Escorpion runs at Shocker, and Shocker gives him a big monkey flip to the floor. Dorada top rope moonsault onto him! Dragon Rojo dropkick Shocker, back elbows him, clotheslines him, clothesline reversed into a hold, but Pólvora breaks it up with a dropkick. Valiente in to face him – springboard plancha, Dragon Rojo grabs Valiente, Dragon Rojo almost losses Valiente, Valiente lets him grab him again, Pólvora charges and this his partner by mistake. Pólvora charge at Valiente, Valiente Buster on two three! Dragon Rojo boot misses, Valiente Buster, one two three!

Valiente tells Pólvora that he's beat him in Puebla, in Guadalajara, and here today, and he wants a shot at his title. Pólvora says Valiente got lucky today, but since he's a champion and better than Valiente, he'll accept the challenge.
