Arena Naucalpan (Naucalpan de Juarez, Mexico)
The feud between Skayde and Black Terry has been slow to build. First there was a cibernetico between Terry’s IWRG students and the students from Skayde’s gym that ended inconclusively when both men refused to accept victory after a missed foul call led to the finish. That match was a fun showcase for the students, with good opening segment and a rushed elimination period.
The cibernetico rematch that took place one week later never aired in full (it too ended in controversial fashion). This is the third match in the feud but the second to air. Skayde and Terry get directly involved in the action for the first time, teaming with three of their pupils in an eight-man tag.
The match begins largely on the mat like you would expect from an IWRG match and especially an IWRG match involving Skayde and Terry. Terry works regularly during the opening fall. Skayde does not. The way it played out seemed to indicate that Skayde going to be the rudo in this feud although things have continued to play our murkily since this match so it is hard to tell. I thought Terry looked good here mixing it up with Skayde’s students and Skyade. Terry’s team picks up the first fall with pins pins on the three non-captain members of Skayde’s team.
You also might expect for the best portions of this match to come when Terry and Skayde are in the ring at the same time and that’s exactly what happened. The two veteran luchadores and trainers largely worked a straight up technical style versus one another when no funny business or hints at either one going rudo. When they are in with the other guys, those segments are also okay. It was the IWRG vs. Skayde Gym trainee segments that were lacking a bit and got a bit sloppy at times. I am not positive that the action was all that worse than the earlier cibernetico, but perhaps the student’s work just paled in comparison to Terry and Skayde’s work, making it more noticeable.
Terry gets pinned for the second fall. Skayde’s team eventually makes it two straight falls for the come-from-behind victory when they pick up a split fall on the non-captain members of Terry’s team.
There was some good stuff in here, particularly when Skayde and Terry were in the ring, but nothing blow away. Still, the Skayde and Terry issue is easily the most interesting story going on in IWRG right now so it might be worth checking out for that reason.
