[2000-03-14-CMLL] Blue Panther & Black Warrior & Mr Mexico vs Tony Rivera & Ringo Mendoza & Emilio Charles Jr

Recommended Posts

Damn, did this build up a great feud out of nowhere between Rivera and Mr. Mexico of all people. It starts with a fun vignette and Mr. Mexico being in a disguise and the match is a war. Mexico blades, everyone else plays a good complimentary role. The finish was awesome with old ass Emilio Charles and Ringo doing topes to compliment an awesome one by Black Warrior and Mexico fouls Rivera with the ref occupied. The ref turns around right when Rivera low blows Mexico giving the rudos the win. Mexico has a revenge promo to close things out. ***3/4

This was awesome! Tony Rivera and Mr. Mexico suddenly have a hot feud, adding to the long list of big CMLL feuds, and preparing us for a post-3/17 landscape already. Black Warrior was amazing in this, and was probably the standout worker outside of the budding Rivera-Mexico rivalry. I liked the chicanery behind the low blow finish as well. Blood and hot action -- great stuff! ****

CMLL is new school and old school at the same time. The vignette with Rivera judo throwing everyone in the gym and Mr. Mexico disguising himself as the ref was straight out of a WWF quarter hour but an apuesta match every other week is straight up old school booking. This match demonstrated the power of a gripe in lucha. Give two workers a reason to dislike each other and lucha is every bit as easy to follow as Puerto Rico or a Southern territory. Rivera was a bigger version of Tarzan Boy and Mr. Mexico far down the list of marquee lucha heels but it didn't matter. A bladejob from Mexico and some frantic action was enough to carry this to a satisfying conclusion. The best dive train of the year was followed by some classic foul shenanigans and a bout you could have easily cut when scanning match lists turned out to be a bonafide piece of fun. CMLL has been nonstop feuds thus far.

A rare appearance from IWRG Mr. Niebla and the early days of Hijo de Fantasma. For a lower card feud, this was pretty heated. Lots of blood and dives with little downtime. Mr. Mexico and especially Emilio Charles were vicious. Ringo Mendoza almost kills himself with a dive at the end. Good stuff here after some so-so couple weeks in CMLL.

Everybody was fired up in this one. A feud between Mr. Mexico and Tony Rivera commenced, and I thought this was the most enthusiastic performance from Emilio Charles so far. I really liked the effort put into the dives in the third fall. Very good match.

Absolutely outstanding. The fueds in CMLL are so intense. Rivera and Mr. Mexico spent every second of this match attacking each other. Everything they did looked crisp and violent. The other 4'guys did a very good job of staying out of the way and providing interesting sequences between the brawling. The third fall dive sequence was great.

 

Best low blow I've ever seen by Mr. Mexico at the finish. Loved this match.
