Astral & Shockercito vs Demus 3:16 & Pierrothito: good minis match. Demus wrestled mostly the whole thing – Pierrothito might have re hurt his shoulder way back on the first move he did, because he did little in that sequence before tagging back out and seemed to picked his moments after that. Demus is great, so it was fine. Astral is better than he used to be, but Shockercito’s the much better guy.

Máscara Dorada vs Rey Escorpión in a lightning match: Two really good lightning matches for Mascara Dorada in two weeks. (Or two days, if you’re me in a massive watching spree.) The Mephisto one on 52MX had the better finish, because this one just kind of came out of nowhere and felt flat compared to the craziness that proceeded, but Dorada was able to do a lot more craziness in the Arena Mexico setup as opposed to the Arena Coliseo one. There ought to be more for him besides lightning matches, but he’s going to have fun lightning matches if that’s all there is.

Marco Corleone, Rush, Shocker vs Mr. Águila, Terrible, Volador Jr.: Mr. Aguila & Shocker still seems like two guys randomly picked to feud. They’ve got a couple spots they’re doing in every match, but nothing that stands out and nothing that indicates they’ll be having a really good match when it’s just them. It’s quick, but there’s no sign the fans seem to care about this either. This match was formula but alright.

  1. That is my favorite lighting match this year. I liked the Mephisto match, but I think this one was loads better. Escorpion has become such a great worker, I want to see him in these lighting matches every week!
