Blanca stops Estrellita

Delta vs Skándalo in a lightning match: a very basic match with no particular story told. Skándalo did some moves, Delta did some moves, they both did some moves, it ended.

Dark Angel, Estrellita, Luna Mágica vs La Comandante, Princesa Blanca, Princesa Sugheit: when last we saw Estrellita, she was feuding with Blanca. Didn’t quite work out for her here. Match felt too long for what they were doing and dragged during the ruda segment. It seemed to be prolonged by someone – Estrellita? – forgetting when the comeback spot was, and there were other small moments that extended into longer ones during the match.

Último Guerrero vs Rey Escorpión: thankfully not the complete Ultimo Guerrero by the numbers singles match as usual, though there was still the usual bits (short opening falls, breaks between moves in third falls that seem longer than the first couple falls), but it was tolerable and the last few times out for him have not. There’s still a ways to go be good, but I’m just happy not to be annoyed. This is an odd place to leave the feud – the new guys look very wrong for turning on UG, which kinda defeats the point of turning on him – but it’s an okay point if they’re coming back to it later and saving some of the most status quo breaking finishes for that.
