Bengala & Camaleón vs Cholo & Espanto Jr.: Formula opener match. Still waiting for Camaleón to get a real chance; he may not be flashy enough to make it, but his gear is worth a shot on it’s own and the finish was really great. Bengala was doing fine until that finish.
Oro Jr., Pegasso, Soberano Jr. vs Arkángel de la Muerte, Hooligan, Nitro: A pleasant surprise! A good combination – Tuareg are best with people who are going to go all for their shots, Soberano and Oro can turn into ragdolls as easily as they can fly – and motivated people. Hooligan’s more than willing to crush guys if they’ll be willing to be crushed, and the técnicos were very willing. They got in their offense too, and this was helped by being a new matchup for the Tuareg but I think it would’ve good even if it was the fifth time they’ve done it.
Estrellita, Goya Kong, Marcela vs Amapola, La Comandante, Tiffany: Seemed like they were headed to the ultra-rare two fall match with no disqualification, until the very weak one to end it. Second fall was stretched out because there was only two of them, but didn’t feel as tedious as other times they’ve done this. Action was solid for this group.
Máximo, Super Porky, Thunder vs Averno, Ephesto, Shigeo Okumura: A match. Exactly what you’d expect with the técnico side and nothing really more than that. Averno played foil to Porky well. Thunder is bad, as always.
Máscara Dorada, Mistico, Titán vs Mr. Águila, Mr. Niebla, Namajague: Fun to see Namajague work with this group of técnicos for the first time in a while. This was mostly a Niebla match, but the técnicos got in their parts too and Aguila was in good form. Camera work near the end wasn’t so great, but at least they picked it up on replay.
