Match Time: 14:02
Rating: below average/ok
Notes: Referee is Tirantes.

1: Dragoncito and Warrior get the long opening, which ends with Warrior dropkicking Dragoncito out and leaving before Dragoncito could even it up. Dragoncito is very annoyed about that. Other pairs are Eléctrico/Violencia and Halcón/Mercurio and are much briefer. Violencia and Warrior are still clowning around after Violencia’s exchange when Mercurio is already done, and everyone’s confuse for a moment. Rudos entertain themselves with comical falls, then lose. Warrior runs all the way up to the top of the stage again, and the camera goes with him rather than the finishes.

2: Entertaining part of the Eléctrico/Mercurio section is the announcers having no idea Rafael el Maya no longer works here. Warrior randomly takes over the match and rudos do moves.

3: Rudos fool around. Mercurio does the Psycho Clown stomp. Warrior does his slingshot legdrop into the ring, which is a much better idea, but he’s still not really doing as much a legdrop as sitting on people. Halcón sidesteps a Mercurio corner charge way early so the rudo can spear the post and get out. Halcón and Violenca screw up a missed senton spot. This is not good. Armdrags and weak dropkicks. Halcón goes for the dive then walks to a stop and tags out. Dragoncito armdrags Mercurio around and does his own dive fake. Fans boo, Dragoncito poses and makes an angry face at them. Rudos pull out Eléctrico so Warrior can do the legdrop to the floor, then come back in and powerbomb Halcón into the corner. Mercurio package piledriver takes care of Halcón. Double dropkick on Dragoncito looks bad, so they do a triple one to finish

Match 2: Estrellita, La Seductora, Marcela vs Amapola, Dalys, Princesa Sugheit

Winner: rudas (2-1)
Match Time: 11:36
Rating: below average/ok
Notes: Seductora is with the técnicas, replacing Luna. Announcers are slow to notice. Referee is Tigre Hispano.

1: Usual opening fall moves with cascading turn taking. Seductora tries to beg off from Amapola hitting her, but things actually go much better for her on the tecnico side. Her headscissors on Amapola sets up a Estrellita plancha from the apron, and the remaining técnicas beat the rudas.

2: Amapola trips Estrellita onto the apron for Dallys kicks, which turns the match for the técnicas. Marcela absorb corner charges. Dallys offers a handshake and a hug to Seductora, then knees her in the midsection. Dallys and Sugheit are a very kick based team. Everyone kicks Marcela, though the rudas have trouble setting her up for it. Rudas finally decided to put on holds and win.

3: Rudas throw around técnicas. Seductora’s partners won’t tag her anymore, but Sugheit lets her go free. Marcela takes corner charges. Seductora shoves Marcela, and that’s enough for Estrellita and Marcela to turn on her and throw her in. Seductora tries to run away, but the rudas bring her back and throw her around by her hair. She finally gets to escape. Rudas whip Marcela, Seductora grabs Marcela by the hair, that actually messes up the rudas, they hit Seductora, and the técnicas to start their comeback. Dalys and Marcela get lost, with Marcela psychically moving Dalys around to set up spots. Marcela almost pins Dalys, Seductora attacks Marcela, Dalys puts her in the scorpion and that’s all for this one.

Seductora helps the rudas attack the técnicas after the match and gets her arm raised.

Match 3: Delta, Diamante Azul, Titán vs Ephesto, Pierroth, Terrible

Winner: rudos (2-1)
Match Time: 12:38
Rating: ok
Notes: Pompin is referee – and gets a mariachi singing for him in honor of his 55th anniversary. He has no idea this is coming and doesn’t seem too thrilled.

1: Delta gets the better of Ephesto to start, despite Terrible breaking up his holds. Diamante Azul and Pierroth struggle. Everything seems to be going much to fast for Pierroth, still, and he appears to fail at rolling. Titan and Terrible have a little bit of a size difference. Terrible bullies Titan via slaps, which they show replays off as Titan starts his comeback. Swing kick sets up a springboard dropkick to end Terrible out, and Titan crashes into him on a tope con giro. Other técnicos beat the other rudos.

2: Delta gets in the roll over the top rope headscissors on Ephesto. Azul clotheslines Pierroth and monkey flips Ephesto. Rudos randomly take over on Titan. Corner clotheslines for Delta, but are confused as how to handle Azul. Awkwardness ends with a double boot. Titan’s hled and slapped around. Pierroth gives Titan his devastating bodyslam and senton, but decides to pose instead of pinning. Terrible throws Titan out. Delta stops Azul on a whip and springboard dropkicks Pierroth out. Pierroth is not good at falling down. Terrible levels him with a tope, Delta moonsaults onto Ephesto. Titan and Terrible, and Terrible realizes you can just kick Titan while he’s doing the handwalk to stop all that mess. This is why he’s champion! Powerbomb, second powerbomb, third powerbomb is delayed a bit – and thrown out of the ring onto the técnicos ! Delta pleas for the DQ, and gets the call.

Terrible celebrates while Titan’s helped to the back.

Winner: técnicos (2-1)
Match Time: 12:11
Rating: ok
Notes: Máximo taunts the rudos, then hides behind Thunder. Lots of arguing before they properly get started. Referee is Tirantes.

1: even when they do go their corners, rudos run more. Tama tries to get Porky to dive on him so he could move and Porky could flatten himself on the floor. This does not take. Somehow, they end up end up with Thunder and Tama Tonga. Tama punches lead to Thunder clotheslines and spinning body slams. Tease of Porky/Escorpion leads to Escorpion jumping Máximo to start the beatdown. Rudos take care of the others while Escorpion focuses on choking and holding Maximo. Dragon Rojo submits Porky when no one is paying attention. Camera misses the actual submission but Rojo holds it on for a while longer.

2: Corner charges on Máximo. Porky gets in some chops on Escorpion before help arrives. Thunder side steps a corner charge and clotheslines the non-Escorpion rudos to start the comeback. Escorpion finds himself cornered by the Brazos, roll out, and Máximo takes him for a slow tour of ringside via chops. Action is slow as expected with this trio of técnicos. All the rudos get beat, including Escorpion taking the sit after the fact. Porky holds Escorpion for a kiss, but Máximo bails out at the last second.

3: Tama Tonga, who is going to wrestle this whole match in his t-shirt, has a very exciting missed elbow drop and tries a flip bump off Thunder’s clothesline. Escorpion charges Porky a lot of times, Máximo sends Escorpion out, everyone takes turns until Porky is comically running around to escape a Tonga charge. Porky whips Escorpion into a Máximo kiss and belly bumps Escorpion out to set up a Máximo tope. Thunder and Dragon Rojo struggle with submissions but finish up. Porky splashes Tonga to end it.

Match 5: Máscara Dorada vs Volador Jr. for the NWA World Welterweight Championship
Arena Mexico, 11/19/2013

  1. Volador backcracker (3:07)

  2. Mascara Dorada leg trapped headlock (1:45)

  3. Volador Destroyer (12:14)

Winner: Volador (2-1)
Match Time: 17:06
Rating: good
Notes: Referee is Tigre Hispano. Seconds are Terrible and Titan, who must be feeling better.

1: Second lockup is the charm, Dorada tripped up but armdragging Volador away. Volador with a trip, armdrag, Dorada kip up armdrag and another faceoff. Dorada another escape into an armdrag, Volador tries to backwards roll of his own, Dorada fights him off, Volador sunset flip, Dorada rolls forward to counter into his own cradle for zero, zero trips and standoff. Volador kicks Dorada, whip, Dorada half flipping run, stopping before a shot, and back with a headscissors. Volador out, Dorada out after him with a big head first tope into Volador’s midsection. Volador thrown in. Dorada goes up top, big plancha. Dorada clothesline misses, Volador front cracker, backcracker, one two three. Karla is so happy.

2: Volador miss a corner charge, Dorada spins around the ropes for his headscissors. Volador off the ropes for a headscissors off his own. Dorada back pedals out, and Volador tries to out do him on a tope. I think Dorada’s was still stronger but Volador shoved Dorada backwards rather than hit with his head. Crowd chanting for Volador as he comes back in. Dorada shoves Volador back, Volador kick deflected, Dorada clothesline misses, Volador superkick, connects, Volador kick caught and leg trapped between Dorada’s leg. Dorada hooks on a sort of headlock and that’s enough for the submission. Crowd has no idea what to make of that hold, then just boos because Volador lost.

3: Crowd chants loudly for Volador. Dueling flipping runs, Dorada landing cleaner, Volador flips Dorada to the apron, Dorada swing kicks him in the face, backs up, charges and pulls of the floating headscissors back in. Dorada takes a look at Volador, claps his hands, runs to the ropes, then stops and goes back out to the ramp. Volador’s apparently going around the side, because Dorada runs and dives that way to take him out with a headscissors. Replays of Dorada’s two headscissors. Both slow back in. Dorada off the ropes, torito one two NO. Dorada reverse springboard meets Volador counter dropkick for two. Evasions leads into a Dorada Sling Blade for two. Dorada charges Volador monkey flips him all the way to the floor and bowls him over with a tope con giro. Both down on the floor thru replays. Crowd still supports Volador. Volador throws Dorada in and waits on the apron. Springboard – into a Dorada dropkick! Dorada actually land a counter dropkick after being hit with so many of them. One two NO. Dorada charges, and hangs himself in the ropes after a missed dropkick. Volador guillotine legdrop one two shoulder up. Volador charges Dorada, Dorada tosses him out, Volador flips and land right on his feet on the floor. That was more impressive than anything. Dorada goes to the top rope, almost loses his balance, and quickly walks the ropes to a big top rope Asai moonsault onto Volador. Both slow back in. Dorada springboard huracanrana dropped into a powerbomb and Volador picks Dorada up to thro whim into the corner for another powerbomb one two NO. Dorada’s turn now. Volador to the apron, posing and slowly climbing. Dorada pauses him with a chop, climbs up with Volador, and pulls him off with a springboard huracanrana. One two NO. Crowd still cheering for Volador. Both guys are hurting and slow up. Dorada clothesline misses, Volador superkick, pose, scream, backcracker. Volador covers one two NO. Crowd really didn’t seem to believe that would be it for some reason. Volador reverse Gori Special to set up the Dorada escape into a huracanrana one two NO. I think the crowd thinks Volador is losing, so they’re more into pushing him to kickout than Volador actually winning. Both slow up again. Camera switch misses something that sets up a Volador armtrap armbar. Dorada in trouble, moves toward the ropes, then gets rolled over for a crucifix cradle and two. Dorada clothesline misses, Volador dropkick to the knee, casita, but of course it’s Dorada’s turn so he rolls thru and puts on his own casita, one two th-NO. Volador flips Dorada to the apron, Dorada climbs up, Volador swing kicks him and climbs up with him. Spanish Fly, one two NO. Volador was counting along that time and is as surprised as anyone that wasn’t three. Replay of that finish because the pauses between moves are a bit long – they come back to action already going. Volador and Dorada have trouble navigating a corner spot they want to do, which turns out to be Volador Spiral. Dorada up again right again so Volador can also get in a Destroyer – one two three. Crowd is thrilled

Volador and Terrible celebrate but leave awful quick. Announcers wrap up by talking about the show turning six years old and previewing next week’s show.
