no idea what the tecnicos were thinking

Molotov & Oro Jr. vs Apocalipsis & Camorra: A boring open match with minimal Oro Jr. excitement. Competent, up until the last finish, but otherwise unmemorable. Camorra & Apocalipsis might as well be a regular team with how many primeras they work together, but they don’t have any signs of teamwork.


least successful tope ever

Estrellita, Goya Kong, Lady Afrodita vs La Comandante, La Vaquerita, Zeuxis: This looked like it could be horrible and it turned out to be just a waste of time, but it was still a waste of time. Some of the weird comedy – rudas refusing to tag Vaquerita, any time Zeuxis sells – was good but the wrestling was not so much. Vaquerita appears to have a personality, so that’s nice. Zeuxis wants to do some athletic matches and doesn’t have the people to do with often.


Vangelis spear horrifies a fanbase

Fuego, Hijo del Fantasma, Sagrado vs Misterioso Jr., Puma, Vangelis: the usual trios match with this crew. Fine action, totally predictable action if you watch them usually, except for the occasional screw up. They – especially Puma – motion to the crowd, but I’m not even sure having a crowd really matters, the parts where they turn towards the crowd seems as practiced as everything else. There’s no reaction to the crowd, if that makes any sense.


double choke slam!

Stuka Jr., Super Porky, Valiente vs Dragón Rojo Jr., Pólvora, Rey Escorpión: Short match which only existed to built up next week’s title match. It did set it up, but it didn’t give a hint about the quality of the match, because there was so little of one here. Unless the match is just Rey Escorpion running from Stuka and finding some rudo fans to chant his name, then this would be considered a strong preview.

Ángel de Oro, Shocker, Thunder vs Euforia, Mr. Niebla, Último Guerrero: Another quick match that didn’t have much to say. So rushed, Angel de Oro didn’t get to do the spots he does in every match. So rushed, Mr. Niebla never spat! Thunder still is robotic and has no feel for doing this, but at least they had him do power spots for offense and not headscissors this time.
