Metálico & Molotov vs Disturbio & Hijo del Signo: long enough to let you know this feud is happening, not long enough to make you care. Not sure there’s a length where such a thing is possible. Signo isn’t good enough at any one thing to make him standout, though this was at least harder than usual cheating exhibition


Namajague spear

Averno, Mistico, Valiente, Rey Cometa, Guerrero Maya Jr., Fuego, Volador Jr., Sangre Azteca, Tiger, Namajague in a cibernetico to determine #1 contender for the Mexican National Welterweight Championship: A lot of action. Some spectacular moves, some spectacular missed spots, and the over done three way fighting at the end of a cibernetico (complete with pinfall breakups which don’t make a lot of sense.) I have it at as 16 minutes long on TV, but it seemed a lot shorter than that and could’ve used a few more minutes to get the other guys some attention. (The Cometa/Namajague stuff was good for the moments they had.) Crowd is split on Místico and the people who didn’t like him seem to be a lot louder about it.


Mr. Aguila runs over Shocker

Atlantis, Diamante Azul, Shocker vs Euforia, Mr. Águila, Último Guerrero: a very brief feud to remind us these feuds are still going. Unsure at this point if the Shocker/Aguila feud kept going because they schedule far in advance and had changed anything but the hair match, or if it actually got pushed back to do it in June in some form. This match could definitely be read as a set up to a relevos suicidas, as much as a six minute match on TV could mean anything at all.
