What happened: 

Psycho Clown loses!

The main event is promoted as being Psycho Clown versus Dr. Wagner. Nuevo Poder del Norte’s music interrupts the start of the match. (The audio is not synced up.) They change the match to a tag match, and it’s credited/blamed on Vampiro. Mocho Cota goes to the back, then returns when Psycho Clown has Carta Brava probably beat with a powerbomb. His music plays again and everything. Psycho does try to unmask Carta Brava instead f pinning, so he’s not frozen in time. Soul Rocker and Cota take out Wagner, then, distract the referee and trip up Psycho to set up a sliding dropkick from Carta. Soul Rocker frog splashes Psycho for the win.

Mocho Cota bragged about beating the TripleMania main eventners, and challenges them to a mask match on behalf of his partners for Verano de Escandalo. Psycho Clown accepts the challenge for himself. Wagner accepts, though it seems like he accepts so Psycho won’t lose it before he faces Wagner. Psycho stars ts to leave, and Wagner bring sup that they were supposed to have a singles match, so they can still have a singles match. Psycho doesn’t seem interested, but Wagner attacks him, and it leads into a real match. Psycho managed to lose two main events!

Leo Riano claimed Lady Shani is on the tecnica side on orders of Vampiro. She had no problem being on the tecnica team thru the match and the after math. All six women fought for no particular reason post match in the ring., then we’re shown Mamba and Pimpi grabbing each other’s hair after they get backstage. No one seems all that interested in breaking that up. There’s a clear guidance in that post match and the commentary that Pimpi & Mamba is the real issue here but it doesn’t feel like they’re close to doing anything about it unless you’re reading ahead.

Cuervo & Scoria ran in at the end of the three way tag match. They got to the ring too late to break up the pin, but hit Mesias in the back with a bat, left it near Pagano and ran away before he could figure out what had happened. Mesias saw Pagano with the bat and assumed his partner had betrayed him. Pagano really didn’t seem interested in clearing up the confusion, and they were face to face as the segment ended.

the roll is probably unnecessary but still fun

The surprise tag match got decent time but it never really picked up to anything interesting. If the goal was to make the Poder del Norte credible challengers, it didn’t really work. They got the win, but lost most of the match and didn’t surprise or impress in anyway. Mocho Cota’s talking was the best part of the act.

The entire bonus match felt like a dark math special, not something we were meant to see on TV. It was a regular match, but played out like something we would’ve seen prior to the current direction: Tirantes is back to being a rudo, Wagner is cheats, Psycho Clown is losing a lot. The crowd cared a lot more about that match, and it’s clear that’s the feud that matters.

Suicide tornillo

They went for it in the three way tag match, it’s just too bad it was for a crowd who wasn’t all that into it. (I wonder if there were just audio issues on this taping, because Cota’s promo in the main event is not synced and nothing outside the ring sounds right.) They wrestled it without sitting out a team for that long, and instead teams coming in and out at random and frequently, which kept the pace high but also led to some awkward moments. There were good moments, especially with the Suicide/Bengala vs Aerostar/Drago match within a match. They got a lot time, but the frenetic everyone getting a turn nature of the match didn’t let itself to much of a story or a build to an end, everyone else just happened to be busy. I’m not sure if Cuervo & Scoria were late or right on time, their attack seemed strange, but Pagano & Mesias played the roles reacting to it well.

The women’s match had a lot of Mami/Goya and so it wasn’t for me and probably not for most people (it didn’t seem as over as usual too.) It shows how high they’re on Mami that it’s her getting the pins win they’re supposedly doing a Mamba/Pimpinela feud. Shani/Hiedra often off on their own to do their own exchanged, which were messy at some times and rehashed looking at others, but still had the best hope of anything watchable coming from this. Just not this time. I think Hiedra would be better as the tecnica and Shani as the ruda, and the only reason for the current status quo is for a feud that dropped cold.
