Did it sneak up on you? You’re surely not the only one, but WWE Super Show-Down occurs today. It’s about two hours away as of the time of this posting. In a rematch from this past Raw, a familial battle pits Humberto Carrillo against his devious cousin Angel Garza. I’m Jordan Huie of the Overtimer and you can expect to see the results of each and every match on the show before long, plus a full preview of everything you can expect to see on the card.
I’m pretty naturally sour on these Saudi shows, and Lord knows the last one was something of a disaster, though it turned out okay in the end. Amazingly, they’re going ahead and doing this the exact same way, with the show taking place the day before SmackDown. They’re also flying via Atlas Air again ’cause why not? Only cowards learn lessons… ah well. Here’s hoping we don’t get a repeat of that fiasco. Now, that aside, let’s get onto the previews.
Humberto Carrillo vs. Angel Garza w/ Zelina Vega
So this past week on Monday Night Raw, Humberto Carrillo and Angel Garza put on an incredible display of lucha libre skill, by far my favorite WWE match of the month discounting NXT. It was just an enthralling, fast-paced contest full of stuff you never see in WWE or really in American wrestling, it was a straight-up lucha match put on by two guys who definitely know how to get that action to translate to a WWE audience.
No doubt the higher ups were impressed by that bout as well, as at the last second they decided to book a rematch to take place just days later. Humberto Carrillo faces his cousin in singles action yet again, and they will hopefully be given the chance to top themselves. Last time, I predicted Humberto would get his win over Angel and send him packing but Garza got the win and it was then made clear that he’s sticking around, even after the return of Andrade.
And that’s a key thing here. Andrade is back as of this show. It’s almost impossible for me to think this won’t become relevant. I have to figure that he’ll make his presence known and cost Carrillo the match. With that in mind, Angel Garza over. Might take a while for Carrillo to get these wins.
