neat reversal to feet on the ropes

Diamante Azul, La Máscara, Shocker vs Mr. Águila, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas: Rushed match, or at least edited into a short one to fit three matches here. Still got the idea of the feud across, and Aguila’s reversal on the finish looked good. Weird to have three mascots and no mascot violence, but I’m sure that was editing as well.


epic suplex

Estrellita, Goya Kong, Marcela vs Amapola, Princesa Blanca, Princesa Sugheit: again, cut down to make time for TV. This match was probably better for it, because the women had a faster paced match, something slimmer than monotony of everyone doing all their usual spots every time. I still need to see a different women’s feud at some point, but this was OK.

Atlantis vs Último Guerrero: a preview of the mask match, which will probably be a lot of the same – a couple quick falls, a few things they haven’t done before, at least one tease of a draw, and then into the usual UG formula before the finish. (The finish is going to be cleaner there.) It didn’t become UG’s doing all his near falls for two counts and minute long breaks until late (and they might have edited the breaks down), so this was fine, but didn’t get me excited for the match itself. The significance of it is pretty good.
