León vs Amapola [REINA INTL]: Good match, though not the women’s match of the year or anyway. It was fine, and the crowd really getting into it a surprising amount by the end helped on TV and probably helped more live. Match was sloppy at times, though understandable for it being the first time they’ve worked together beyond the usual language barrier. Still, Leon wasn’t as interesting as Ayumi or Ray’s matches here last year. Leon’s frog splash was good and she did some amusing things selling offense but little else stood out. I guess it makes sense for the person who is sticking around to look dominant, but it didn’t give much reason to care about Leon by the end. She needed to show a little bit more than she did here.
Máscara Dorada, Mistico, Titán vs Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto: The usual problem with Místico and High Flyers matches; the matches are built around him being The Best, and it’s pretty clear the other guys are better then him when they get a chance to get in their offense. Titan and Dorada did not get much of a chance until the third fall, but looked better when they did. The akwardness of the situation also takes the fans out of it, no matter what sympathetic beating he takes; they seemed more in to women’s match, not a great sign. At any rate, this was okay but just another chapter in Místico vs Mephisto.
