So, I take it I'm the only one more excited for Rey Cometa vs Puma King than Terrible?
I know the main could pull off something truly epic but the room for failure seems awfully high going on their previous encounters.
You're not alone actually, I'm" definitely looking forward to Cometa/King as I think they may very well steal the show, talked with some friends about it and I'm" even more excited for that match. I think Rush/Terrible will put on a really good match though (I'm" calling ***1/2 - ***3/4 tops) I doubt it'll match the great drama and atmosphere of Wagner Jr./Ano 2000 Jr. but it'll get up there. Never been the biggest Rush fan, but I really like Terrible so yeah. Not to mention, they got a consistent card behind even them if they don't hit expectations to round out the show quality (if the undercard matches deliver that is).
Well since no one else posted the results of the Anniversary Show I'll do the part:
***79th Anniversary Show*** courtesy of TheCubsFan
1) Dalis la Caribeña, Goya Kong, Marcela b Amapola, Princesa Blanca, Tiffany
**Tecnicas took 1/2. Marcela pinned Tiffany with Dalis helping Marcela with leverage. Tiffany challenged Marcela to a trios rematch next week, and Marcela accepted.
2) Ephesto, Mephisto, Niebla Roja b Delta, Stuka Jr., Valiente
**Rudos took 1/3. In the third, Stuka pinned Ephesto, but the rudos beat Stuka, and then Mephisto defeated Delta for the win.
3) Ángel de Oro, La Sombra, Titán b Namajague, Shigeo Okumura, Taichi
**Tecnicos took 1/3, Sombra beating Taichi in the third fall.
4) Puma King b Rey Cometa [mask]
**Seconds were Tiger & Espiritu Negro. Rey Cometa dived off the stage on Puma with a tornillo before the bell. Puma still pulled out the fall with a leg hold in 1:16. Cometa went into the barricade again in the second fall, but came back to win with the 450 splash in 4:26. Rey Cometa is Mario Alberto González, 29 years old, 13 years a wrestler, from Quereraro. Both gave each other credit for their effort after the match, and Puma thanked the very supportive crowd.
5) Dragón Rojo Jr., Negro Casas, Último Guerrero b Atlantis, Mistico, Prince Devitt
**Rudos took 1/3, Dragon Rojo beatting Devitt each time and setting up a title match between the two.
6) Rush b Terrible [hair]
**Seconds were Toro Blanco for Rush and Rey Bucanero and Comandante for Terrible. Terrible won the first and Rush took the second in usual quick falls. Both bled were said to have bleed; Rush did so from the mouth, and Terrible’s wound is not visible in the pictures (maybe a slight bit on his forehead.) Much less than Volador/Niebla. Rush finally won with the martillo negro. Fans sided with Terrible even after the match, upsetting Rush. Mistico, out to celebrate, settled down his brother, but the entire family was pelted with drinks until they left. Terrible was also sent to the back to calm down the crowd, but returned to get his hair cut (doing some himself) and thanked the fans. In the locker room, Rush said he didn’t care about the boos and they just made him stronger, while Terrible said he didn’t lose tonight, but just won more fans and it’s not over with Rush.
**Don’t have an attendance number, just some guesses. I guessed 12,000 looking at the pictures around middle of the show. People who were there are saying 80%, which would put it at 14,000. There was said to be some sections that did not fill up (the blue section on the floor.) It was a not a sell out, and CMLL thought they could get one out of this show.
The overall results of the show doesn't surprise me as I pretty much guessed most of them right though I picked Terrible because I don't like Rush however I
at Rush and Co getting booed yet again, even worse they bring out Mistico II with him. Sucks that Terrible lost but like he said it just made him even more popular. Puma/Rey seemed to be damn short if I'm" reading that right which is disappointing. Happy that my boy Rojo is getting a shot at Devitt as Los Guerreros del Infierno continues to be one of my bright spots about CMLL and it should be a great match.
