big fan!

Leo & Star Jr. vs Arkángel de la Muerte & Maléfico: [good] struck me as an entertaining youth/experience battle. The first two falls were put well together, with Leo and Star Jr. impressing by keeping up with the rudos, and the rudos battering them for in the second. The third fall was sloppier, amusing so at times, but this was a good random segunda.

Malefico unsell
Virus, also a big fan of Puma & Tiger. (Ref almost gets squashed.)

Dragon Lee, Esfinge, Pegasso vs Puma, Tiger, Virus: [good] Puma & Tiger doing Puma & Tiger bits with Dragon Lee vs Virus happening again in the background – this is pretty much all you want from this match. You even had the long Virus opening mat work (in a long opening fall), though it was mostly Pegasso almost getting his arm detached from his body. Esfinge looked better here but Tiger & Puma looked like the best people on the planet. Match got lost a bit in the second fall but everything worked out fine.

scare cradle!

Blue Panther Jr., Dragón Rojo Jr., Fuego vs Ephesto, Felino, Hechicero: [OK] Better than most matches the last few weeks but not as good as the other matches on this show. There were quite a few moments where the match was going better than it should only because Hechicero is magic. This was the best Blue Panther Jr. has looked in weeks, which is no coincidence. He really just didn’t have much to work with in terms of partners or time. Crowd loudly being interested in everything but this match did not help.

stop giving him your arm!
