Eventually I'll get around to watching TNA but still I love the CMLL icon so:
LUCHA LUCHA LUCHA
TKG: I continue to enjoy the Coliseo backstage personal "life outside of wrestling" interviews. For the result of what happened when the Man of the Bullet met the Original Sioux Indian, her discussion of family life was far more pedestrian less William T Vollmann. India Sioux has really really pretty facial features. I mean Rey Buccanero is her cousin, and I'm not sure whether she has prettier feminine facial features than him...but that's no insult.
PAS: The opener was a fun undercard match. Mascara Purpura is I guy who I have never even noticed his name in results before, but somehow ended up as the captain of the techinco team. He was clearly the least of his team, but he did have a couple a spectacular leapfrogs, including one where he does two front flips and lands on his feet. I got the sense that he had a really spectacular dive in him, but he ended up being the only technico who didn't do a dive. Pantera and Emilio Charles Jr. are both guys I haven't seen much of lately, and both looked great. Pantera had a pair of great looking topes and Emilio had a great headbutt.
TKG: Yeah fun undercard trio. Phil forgot to mention Loco Max who was his usual fun self, with nice section opposite Pantera and another fun section opposite Maximo, some mat work, fun crazy guy shtick and top rope splash. Real heart of the match was the Maximo vs. Emilio section with Emilio just wasting Maximo with the headbutt in first fall and the really great faces spread Emilio's legs and then Maximo does flying butt attack forcing his ass into Emilo's cock spot in the second.
What Didn't Work
PAS: The main event was a really mailed in Coliseo main event. Coliseo audiences are much more traditional then the Arena Mexico crowds, and you could see that Perros Del Mal were working much more bumbling rudos, then the cool rudos they work in Arena Mexico. Mistico was the only guy in this working hard, as he had a pair of dives, and a some big bumps on the floor. Pretty much everyone else was just running through their shit. Damien especially looked like total crap.
TKG: Yeah mailed in Coliseo main. Wagner was even mailed in for mailed in Wagner. Not only did he mail in the wrestling, he also mailed in the shtick...like he couldn't even bother to put some effort into posing. I think he only went up to bottom rope to milk applause. I liked the earlier bumbling stalling parts of match more than I liked the actual wrestling parts.
You hit the nail on the head. Austin was the bigger draw, but he has almost never put anyone over. Even when he tapped to Angle at Unforgiven '02 (?) in the culmination of a long feud in which Austin was playing heel, his hand was outside the ring.
