Negro Casas is not Titan
Zacarias hits non moving target

Titán, Tritón, Valiente vs Felino, Negro Casas, Puma: Fun match. Titan and Triton are a fun tag team that are now limited to teaming once every four months, but they looked on the same page as ever (especially during the springboard moonsault set up – more stereo teamwork than the Angels) and seemed to enjoy working together again here. It felt they made sure Triton had his spotlight moments here too, where he could’ve just slipped into the background with another group. This was just a good mix of guys who wanted to have a good match. Felino will work if everyone wants to and did so here. Only Negro Casas could get away with this silliness and have people like him even more for it.

FU Headbutt

Diamante Azul, Rush, Shocker vs Terrible, Último Guerrero, Volador Jr.: An attempt to bring a big match feel to what was played out like just a normal trios match. The luchadors reacted to each other like it was a big deal to see Rush vs Terrible or Rush vs Volador, but the match itself was something you’d see on any show. It was not by bad by any means, but it felt like they were trying to bluff out a major match on a show that need one, and didn’t actually do any of the work. If you look at the results, Ultimo Guerrero totally humiliated Shocker – he beat Shocker twice, including with his own move – but no one brought attention to it and it didn’t feel like it was going anywhere. Like most of Sin Piedad, this was going thru the motions of a major show without having consequences or real stakes.
