TKG: When saw the list of participants, I was dreading this main event but this match delivered. It had its problems as Olimpico is looking really bad lately and first fall took while to get together. Liked the heels stop all Mistico's rope assisted stuff in first fall. Olimpico's dive onto Wagner's head was nasty as was Mistico eating the military press to the floor. The second face fall was really fast and not really memorable. Third had large section of Wagner schitck which can be hit or miss and felt like he just got a hold of a best of Hogan DVD set, as he really seemed to be apeing exact Hogan body language. Heavy Metal parts of third fall were fucking great as Heavy is really good as guy who is on fire on offensive then gets cut off big time. Finish feels blown. The mask removal finishes tend to make a lot of sense normally in Mistico matches as there really is no other believable finish, but here it just seemed lazy.
PAS: I really like Olimpico as a slim babyface who did some matwork, current rudo Olimpico looks and works like Emory Hale in a mask. Mistico looked pretty good here, outside of the blown finish especially the press slam to the floor, and Heavy Metal was punching people in the face like he had a flacid penis.
WHAT DIDN' T WORK:
TKG: Man too much Hiroka in the women's match. Hiroka is awful. there were moments where she looked like the worst wrestler on TV today. I don't understand biting the bottom of opponents wrestling boot. It's a boot who wants to taste boot. Would make sense if opponent was barefoot. Plus dog-faced Asian girl biting a barefooted Mexican girl feels like something that TigerDriver 91 would be uploading to youtube. I guess girl willingly putting her mouth on the bottom of another girl's boot would get uploaded just as fast...still it makes no sense. You watch the rest of Hiroka's offense and really she felt like someone who should be doing fewer leg drops and more biting. The match ended with Hiroka challenging Marcela for belt next week and I'm hoping I'm not gonna have to review that. Medusa has dumped her awesome Clash of the Titans mask but still looked good in this. Her, Marcela, Lady Apache, Rosa Negra all looked fine and they even managed to hide most of Sahori's normal glaring weaknesses. Still too too much Hiroka. Also the commercial break in middle of one fall match doesn't help.
PAS: Rosa Negra wasn't okay, she was also wearing an outfit with flesh colored circles around her tits, which made her look like she was wrestling topless. It did make all the shots to her chest really nasty. Hiroka does look worse then Matt Bentley, Lance Hoyt, Chris Master or Shawn Micheals. I don't remember the last time I saw Torrie Wilson, but she looks worse than Torrie Wilson. She also doesn't as much look Asian as she looks like a Mexican woman with down's syndrome they gave an Asian gimmick too.
For those who weren't sure if they were getting Backlash, Schank's North is advertising Rick Bogner (Fake Razor, Big Titan) and Bad News Allan as being there tomorrow for the PPV
I wasn't planning on getting the PPV, but this might be intriguing...
