450 splash

Rey Cometa vs Tiger in a lightning match: This was a Rey Cometa match where Tiger just happened to be the opponent. Tiger’s really lost in the shuffle at the moment, even if he wasn’t getting dumped. He’s not making the strongest case for himself – Tiger’s not bad, but he’s doing nothing to really stand out in highly competitive group of rudos. Cometa did better looking good, though this was just a little better than an average lightning match.


Rush dropkick to Terrible

La Máscara, Rush, Titán vs Rey Bucanero, Terrible, Vangellys: These remain fine matches, though there’s some thing missing from them being good. They tried to make it more back and forth, especially near the end where there were surprising reveals, but it’s not clicking as much as it it might. These are still two thrown together trios who are not as much as team as recent trios champions, but they’ll get more time and more importance in the next match so maybe they’ll make it work then.


tope con giro

La Sombra, Marco Corleone, Máximo vs Ephesto, Mephisto, Volador Jr.: Amused by them doing the same finish for the first fall in consecutive matches. This was a slower and more comedy main event than the other Volador/Sombra matches. It’s definitely in the “fine but I will have no memory of it by the time you read this recap” section.
