Goodhelmet's Wrestling Weekend

Recommended Posts

 

We thought we were going to be late because there was a huge protest and march with students protesting teachers. A 15 minutes Uber ride ended up taking 45 minutes. The protest stretched for miles. I wanted to join the protest but my buddy vetoed the idea. I think the protest would have been more entertaining than the Impact tapings. 

TNA Impact tapings...

I won't spoil the matches but it started off really fun and became dull after about an hour or so. 

 

The show started with a 6 man mixed tag with each team having 2 guys and a girl. They were all Mexican and I didn't know any of the names.  Fun spotfest opener and the crowd was really into it. 


Fenix and Pentagon vs. Rich Swann and Matt Sydal. My god, Pentagon was over with this crowd.  Fun tag with a finish that might have been botched. I am looking forward to seeing Pentagon tomorrow at Arena Mexico. And this was the peak of the show. 

Some guy ,who came out with Homicide, beat up a luchador and called out Konnan and LAX who didn't come out. 

Alisha vs Faby Apache. This was a pretty good match. Apache was over with the crowd. The show sort of goes down hill from here. 

Trevor Lee vs Puma King vs Petey Williams vs Jack Evans - Puma King was entertaining... and I still hate the Canadian Destroyer. This was lame with lots of time with 2 guys laying outside so the other 2 could do their spots. 

Desi Hit Squad vs LAX... this sucked. I am not a fan of the new LAX. 

Johnny Impact and Eddie Edwards vs Killer Cross and Moose. When did Eddie Edwards become an Irish punk rocker, union member? Anyway, the crowd was pretty dead when they realized Aries wouldn't be wrestling. Match was ok but Moose shouldnever run away from Eddie Edwards. That felt stupid. After the match, people started leaving even though there was more wrestling to come. 

Kierra Logan & Allie vs. Su Yung & Scary Partner. I was tired and bored.  

Eli Drake vs. La Parka. Crowd was excited until they realized it wasn't LA Park. Crowd chanted for Park and this La Parka played the heel. I was bored. 

A six man lucha began and we decided to lesve esrly to go back to the hotel. We bought the cheapest seats available and that felt like thw right decision. It was fun but not great. It just feels surreal being in Mexico.

Sorry the Impact show sucked, but I have to figure the CMLL show will be amazing even if it's just for the atmosphere.

Looking forward to your report! 

If you have time, maybe you can solve a mystery for me! Every time a lucha guy comes to an indy show in the States, they never have t-shirts bigger than XL. I've often wondered if that's because they don't have them, or they don't bring them!

I will check tonight at Arena Mexico on the T shirts.

Super bummed. Planned on going to Santo's grave today. It's 45 minutes from the hotel and in one of the most dangerous neighborhoods according to my friend. The neighborhood doesn't bother me. However, it would have taken 3 or 4 hours away from us.

Arena Mexico doesn't look like it did in my head, but it's still awesome. I love that the ringside seats are leather.

Dude, when the zuber dropped us off, I didn't see the arena. Had no idea.

3Atlantis, Místico and El Soberano vs. La Sangre Dinamita (El Cuatrero, Forastero and Sansón)

Six-man "Lucha Libre rules" tag team match

 Atlantis is slow. This Rudo team is awesome. Segunda caida was amazing with non stop spots and dives . Atlantis fought over the rail right in front of us. After 2nd fall... insane new Jack level dive off top of stage. 3rd fall was awesome as well. 0ne little flub but they recovered.  INSANE atmosphere amd the rudos were great. Mistico is so hated by this crowd. Match of the night so far.

4Los Guerreros Lagunero(Gran Guerrero, Euforia and Último Guerrero) vs. Klan Kaoz (Ciber the Main Man, The Chris and Sharlie Rockstar

Six-man "Lucha Libre rules" tag team match for the CMLL World Trios Championship

Crowd loved Ultimo. First technico they cheered. They don't like the CL4N. They are calling Cibernetico... Ciber-Puto and chanting "Culeros". I'll be honest. I wasn't watching the match. I was criwd watching.  Ultimo Guerrero was OVER and treated like a legend.

5Carístico, El Hijo de L.A. Parkand L.A. Park vs. Diamante Azul and Los Lucha Bros(King Phoenix and Penta el 0M)

Six-man "Lucha Libre rules" tag team match

I was shocked at the tepid response to LA Parks entrance. My Mexican friend told me people are angry with him for not doing the Rush match.  First fall was fun but not blowaway great. The crowd brawling to start Segunda Caida was Awesome live. Those LA Park belt shots were the sickest sounds I have ever heard at a wrestling match.  2nd fall was going great but there was a botch setting up a HUGE dive outside.  Good fall with an anti climactic ending. Third fall was the fall of the night so far with false finishes, Parks dive, big moves, nasty crowd shots. The crowd is throwing money in the ring!!!! All six guys gave a bow as the crowd gave them a stsnding ovation and chanted ESTO ES LUCHA!!!

6Matt Taven and Volador Jr.vs Rush and Bárbaro Cavernario

Best two-out-of-three falls tag team Lucha de Apuestas, hair vs. hair match

Rush and Volador had amazing back to back entrances.  Matt Taven is a Kendall Windham circa 1986 looking mother fucker. Right away, Barbaro does a splash off the top of the stage.  So much action and chaos in the first fall.  
2nd fall, not as hot as the first. This had more posturing and shtick with a hot finish.  
3rd fall was one of the most intense feelings I have had as a wrestling fan. Every move and dive had the crowd on the edge of their seat. This was so amazing as a live experience. This was missing blood but it was pretty nuts. Have no idea how it came across on TV but it was the best live experience I have ever had at a wrestling show.  Now for the haircutting...

Based on current storylines, I'm guessing this was Eddie Kingston
