ohtani's jacket Posted April 5, 2019 Report Share Posted April 5, 2019 Well, I was wrong when I said Felino vs. Cerebro wouldn't go anywhere. I guess I should have looked ahead because here they are in a title match. I took a long break from watching this stuff so they may have been feuding at the end of the year as well. This was an excellent title match. In fact, if it wasn't for that amazing Atlantis vs. Wagner mano a mano bout it would have easily been the MOTM for January. The first fall is 9 minutes of matwork, and even though Cerebro is clearly Felino's superior on the mat, it's still an outstanding portion of matwork. The segunda caida is a classic revenge fall with Cerebro hitting a terrific tope that is one of the more realistic looking dives you'll see in a lucha bout. He follows that up with an awesome submission/pin combo that every wrestler should copy. I love how the ref is in two minds over whether to count it as a pinfall or submission but gives him a five count to release it. The third fall isn't as epic as some title matches but it doesn't beat around the bush either. You know you're getting a finish and the ending is totally satisfying. Great stuff.
