Stuka Jr. vs Vangellys in a lightning match: JCR brought up Vangellys beating Stuka in En Busca de un Idolo; this felt just about like another one of those, though a with a little less intensity because it was only a random lightning match with no meaning. Stuka’s serpentine moonsault looked good, and Vangellys’ finish looked powerful as long as he doesn’t knock people’s heads into the mats in the process, but this was just a match.
Diamante Azul, La Sombra, Rush vs Rey Bucanero, Shocker, Terrible: It was a good thing Shocker won here because it felt like head to win to show he had a chance of winning on 03/21. Rush got him alone for about 90 seconds in the first and just rampaged, making Shocker look like a proud man who was totally out gunned. But then he won,so I guess he’s got a chance, though more it’s going to be something when Rush destroys him all over again. It’s definitely different than the Negro Casas versus Rush dynamic. Rush & Terrible helped even the odds for Shocker a bit, Diamante Azul and Sombra were just here to semi-accurately connect on dive.
Máscara Dorada, Mistico, Valiente vs Euforia, Niebla Roja, Último Guerrero: Standard high flying Estetas del Aire match with a bonus couple of minutes and the Guerreros pulling it out. Ultimo Guerrero’s catch of Místico right before the finish was incredible, and Niebla Roja founds a new way to make his move look a bit more painful (if harder to do). The end of the second fall was interesting too, as Euforia found a way to use his accidental boosting powers for his own team for once! I’m hoping they do the title match just so we can see what they add on to this.
