nice to see you, Metatron

Ángel Azteca Jr., Metatrón, Rey Cometa vs Hijo del Signo, Puma King, Skándalo: Cometa needs better partners! Azteca was not so bad. Metatron was bad. Sangre would’ve felt totally out of place here, but he would’ve been better. Right team won, at least. Puma and Signo’s matching gear should earn them an Arena Coliseo tag team title shot. That really should be the bar to entry for those titles.

rudo double splashes that actually worked!

Euforia, Raziel, Virus vs Hooligan, Loco Max, Nitro: A little bit better than last week, but this feud isn’t clicking for me. The Virus/Loco Max stuff is okay, but we’re just getting two long beatdowns and no one’s doing consistently interesting in them. Cancerberos are generally better than the Tuareg but better when they’ve got some técnicos to work off of.

poor Mije

Fuego, Hijo del Fantasma, Sangre Azteca vs Kraneo, Morphosis, Mr. Águila: It feels like everyone faces everyone, but there are more divides than can be easily noticed. Fuego & Sangre have been third match guys and the Invasors haven’t come across them much, nearly at all. They were not as excited by this possibility as I was, having a pretty ordinary match.

watch the fan in the stripped shirt

Felino, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas vs Ángel de Oro, La Máscara, Super Porky: This wasn’t strictly by the number, they had some new ideas to try out, but they hadn’t progressed to being actually good ideas. Angel de Oro is in these matches but doesn’t feel like a main event guy. Brazo de Plata was a bit sad here. Felino worked hard.
