Notes: Esfinge & Gallo retained the titles.

Review: [ok] longer than normal and one the crowd seemed into in, but not much worth going out of your way here. The rudos seemed to be walking their way thru it and the técnicos aren’t great enough to make that work. This match had Misterioso and Gallo battling it out on the mat for six and a half minutes. You can start when Sagrado tags in and get a normal length match without missing much. Gallo doesn’t do the headstand spot as well as Blue Panther. If you like third falls that have long sections of a guy sitting in the corner and getting his face stomped, this is the match for you. If you like third falls that are super heavy on Gallo in general, this might be good.

not the best headscissors
Misterioso at least finding new ways to loose dumbly

Sombra will take this, thank you

Review: [below average] edited, Ingobernales refusing to get along with their partners, Super Porky having the same match as always, a foul for no reason – this really checked off a lot of bad CMLL boxes. Super Porky splashing La Mascara was amusing. That’s about it. Really should’ve been two falls.

Review: [ok] best match on the show, pretty good in parts and slow in others. Místico (or the editors) had a good night, doing especially well in the third fall in a sequence where he and Volador did a lot of moves together. The stereo tope con giro to end it went perfectly. First fall was a lot of Ultimo Guerrero getting annoyed at the crowd, which seemed to work in the building but really went on for a while on TV. It seemed like it was going to be a long match when Volador won the first fall with a simple inside cradle, but he picked up as the match went along and/or he wasn’t working with Gran Guerrero.

teeter totter spot as set up!
