Octagoncito rope walking moonsault

Niño Hamburguesa, Octagoncito, Pimpinela Escarlata vs Carta Brava Jr., Mamba, Mini Psycho Clown: [OK] Standard Pimpinela match, with nothing wrong but nothing exceptional and shorter than usual – there was as much time before and after the match as the match itself. Octaogncito did look really good in his run of offense. They kept Niño Hamburguesa to just the stuff he does well, and he looked a lot better for it. Carta Brava, still without an AAA gimmick, probably should ask out of mixed matches because it exposes how close he is to being a mini.

Australian Suicide: terrible dance partner

Australian Suicide & Faby Apache vs Eterno & Sexy Star: [OK] Another fine match that isn’t required viewing but filled the role it was supposed to. Everyone here was good for the time it went. Sexy Star is in unbelievable shape. Eterno took some big bumps for Suicide’s offense, including the one to set up the finish.

this did not work out well for Perro

El Mesías & Myzteziz vs el Hijo del Perro Aguayo & Texano: [OK] This is one where my perception is definitely affected by having an indicator about how long the match is – they got about six minutes into this, and I had no idea how this was possibly was going to last as long as listed. The rudos control of this match lasted a very short time, so the solution was chair shots, slowing things way down, and Myzeziz and Mesías getting in all their spots. Crowd was okay with it, I would’ve liked to see a couple of these minutes distributed elsewhere. Myzteziz beating Perro clean with his finishing hold in the center of the ring is so weird to see but you have to remember that finishes in AAA don’t matter at all except for the times where they totally matter.

Mesias continues to change the definition of tope
This looks familiar.
