Dragon Rojo, blowing a spot

Atlantis, La Máscara, Shocker vs Mephisto, Volador Jr., Yujiro: an ordinary match which got the big ending it didn’t seem to warrant. Volador’s spent a lot of time in the Atlantida in the last year, he probably needs to rethink things a little bit. (Note from the future: look at psychic me! also I write these when I write the recaps, weeks prior to when I post it)

the end

Black Warrior vs Rey Escórpion for the hair: Good match, probably the best we can hope from this matchup in 2012. Nothing athletically stunning, but they had a lot of dramatic near falls in the end without just taking turns. The finish is the way they’ve been getting out of these matches with a little doubt, insisting the piledriver move is legal while looking for sympathy for using the neck damaging move. I don’t know that it works like that, but it doesn’t seem new.
