In the main event, “100% tecnico” Mistico took off his mask and threw it to Felino to draw the DQ. He’s still acting like a rudo. Sombra did not get along with him, but Mascara Dorada has no problem and the crowd was behind Mistico. Mistico challenged Felino to a mask vs hair match, Felino didn’t seem too interesting.

Tecnicos lost the semifinal in straight falls, with Garza having trouble accidentally hitting both his partners and walking out on them after the match. Looks like Garza is turning rudo, and maybe they’re setting the title match beforehand.

In the first fall, Averno offered a handshake to Panther, and used it to immediately beat the maestro. Rudos pulled another trick in the third fall, and @cmllmagazine notes this is the second straight week they’ve tricked Panther.

Semental replaced an injured Camorra. Reality shows are tough!

If I’m reading this blog entry correct (questionable at best), Mima Shimoda is leaving Mexico.
