June 16, 2012 – Veracruz, Mexico
Eita Kobayashi vs. Flamita vs. Chikano vs. Eterno
I have no idea which of the Mexican guys is which. Chikano is not Kenshin Chikano, which is kind of a bummer. Kobayashi controls early with a chop. The masked guy, who I’m guessing is Flamita, hits a dropkick. He and the blue pants fellow criss cross. Flamita hits a shoulder tackle for 1. Kobayashi suplexes both of them. Flamita clotheslines Blue Pants. Kobayashi hits a shoulder tackle. He hits an elbow. The crowd chants Eterno at Mr. Yellow Pants, so now I think I know who is who. Eterno hits a superkick. He and Chikano trade chops. Kobayashi gets in on that, leveling Eterno and getting over in the process. He nails Chikano with a chop. Flamita gets one too. Eterno hits a big boot. He hits Chikano with a facebuster. He hits a back bodydrop and a dropkick. He hits Kobayashi with a fireman’s carry for 2 when Flamita hits a dropkick to break the count. Flamita smacks Kobayashi hard. He hits a German suplex for 2. Chikano hits the F5 for 2. Eterno dropkicks his butt. He hits a gutbuster for 2. Kobayashi chops him. He hits an inverted Alabamaslam for 2. Flamita chops his back. He hits the 619. Kobayashi avoids a missile dropkick. Flamita hits Eterno with a multi-rotation Déjà Vu. He hits the Sasuke Special, which Eterno barely sells. Kobayashi dropkicks Chikano. Flamita kicks Chikano in the face. Chikano fights back and dives onto Eterno. Eterno sells that because it’s REAL. Flamita rolls Kobayashi up for a very slow 2. Kobayashi chops him to blocks a dive. He hits a superplex for 2. These are the slowest counts ever. Flamita hits the Code Breaker. He misses a Phoenix Splash. Kobayashi hits a Vertibreaker for 2. He hits a moonsault (thanks for getting into place Flamita) for the win at 10:16. This was surprisingly fun and hard-hitting for a lucha match. I have a feeling Kobayashi isn’t the only rookie of the bunch, but they all looked solid out there.
