Caristico & Soberano Jr vs Ultimo Guerrero & Sanson
June 16, 2017
Arena Mexico in Mexico City, Mexico
CMLL Super Viernes
Gran Alternativa Finals
If you think Meltzer underrates WWE matches compared to New Japan, you should see CMLL matches. This one, for example, had far more action and dives than most New Japan matches, not to mention superior heat. Yet matches half as long get ****1/2 ratings while this didn’t.
Ultimo Guerrero is so vastly underrated by “smart” fans that it’s criminal. He’s such a pro out there, at one point doing a single handed superplex when Soberano wasn’t even on the turnbuckle yet. Soberano is still green, yet you’d never know it with Guerrero in there. Soberano is also very thin, although he’s still young with time to “grow.” Caristico was working hard as well, and the crowd was going nuts with all the amazing flips and dives.
For the CMLL cameramen reading this who constantly do close-ups of the hot girls at ringside, please know that it’s VERY MUCH APPRECIATED.
