Marcela over the rail

Goya Kong, Marcela, Silueta vs Amapola, Princesa Blanca, Zeuxis: [OK] build up trios that kept the people feuding out of the ring quite a bit. Their brawl started good but things got worse by the end and the crowd wasn’t into the powder finish at all. Felino was guest analyst, shockingly picked his wife to win. Zeuxis completely missed on her tornillo moonsault, and the camera work couldn’t save it. At least she added an elbow drop. Third fall started rough with Marcela having trouble with the hanging armbar and Silueta struggling with her tricky armdrag. Edgar saw Blanca pull out the bag of powder, turned away, then turned back too soon. That was all not good.

Atlantis, Dragón Rojo Jr., Titán vs Rey Escorpión, Shocker, Último Guerrero: [OK/GOOD] Stronger build up to the matches which are not happening quite yet. Guerrero did turtle up annoyingly in the second fall but the mask ripping third fall did make up for it. Match probably could have been stopped when Atlantis destroyed Guerreros mask or Escorpión did the same to Rojo, and Shocker added to it by almost accidentally pulling off Titans mask, but they did play up the hatred.  Escorpión and Rojo still seems forced, but they had clearly worked hard on the wrestling spots. Ultimo Guerrero getting along with Rey Escorpión and Shocker is sad to see, though Escorpión did manage to anger UG by the end. ShockerTitan was an odd match up but they managed to do okay.


Sombra would really be something if he was a little more confident

La Máscara, La Sombra, Rush vs Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas, Volador Jr. in a relevos increíbles match: [GOOD] Again, more build up than match and this was shorter than usual (everyone was caught off guard at the sudden finish), but best match of the night. Ingobernables were the peak evil in the first two falls, just mugging the opposition and only being caught when they were just a little bit too arrogant.  Máscara holding Casas in a tarantula while Rush destroyed him was great, as was Sombra taunting Volador with his own mask. Volador came off the strongest as a tecnico yet when making his comeback, helped greatly by what came before. Negro Casas vs Rush is going to be great, but Volador vs Sombra must have been something if they could bring the same level of emotion to it.  This was good fun.
