Dr. Cerebro vs. El Hijo del Diablo
IWRG Intercontinental Lightweight
Type: Title Match Style
As good as the wrestling has been at times in IWRG during their history, the atmosphere and presentation often do not compare to CMLL and AAA. Not so the case here, where Dr. Cerebro and Hijo del Diablo wrestle a “big” match with the heat to match. The match is well-rounded and well-structured and includes periods of quality mat work, brawling, some blood, dives, and effective near falls.
Negro Casas vs. CHarly Manson
HAIR VS. HAIR
Type: Hair vs. Hair
A unique matchup during Charly Manson’s “blink and you’ll miss it” 2010 stint in CMLL. This seems like a weird match on paper (and it is) but it works out rather well. Manson and Casas wrestle a straight up, technically sound first fall that is a lot of fun if not a bit unexpected. There is a lot of rudo referring from Tirantes, but Tirantes is consistent with his approach and his act serves to stack the deck against Casas which was probably a necessity to get the fans to buy into Manson as a threat to Casas. It seems to payoff as the third fall is both well worked and relatively heated. Casas does not have bad hair matches (Super Parka match notwithstanding). This might be his most impressive & surprising effort.
