Diamante vs Pólvora in a lightning match: Totally strange to do this match when it’s about happen in the same format as part of a tournament, which yet another clue they didn’t have this tournament figured out much in advance. They have room to improve here – this was occasion sequences with nothing much interesting connecting them together.



Hijo del Fantasma, Stuka Jr., Valiente vs Misterioso Jr., Namajague, Shigeo Okumura: Namajague was so very unhappy by Valiente’s trick. It does set up the lightning match in an unexpected fashion. Match itself was short and didn’t stand out that much.

Diamante Azul, La Sombra, Rush vs Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto:Rudos didn’t seem very into it early. They tried to make it feel like a main event with a long spot match but it still came off as interchangeable. Nothing especially wrong but just a match with these guys.
