What happened: 

this was not good

Niebla Roja still wants to wrestle a técnico style, still is on the rudo side but more actively cost his team the win this week.

Cometa led his team to a straight fall win. He didn’t actually pin Cavernario in any of the falls – he got Bobby & Pólvora in the first, then was pinning Pólvora again in the second when Cometa fouled him – but he and Cavernario feuded the entire match so it set up a singles match anyway. Cavernario accepted in between punching Cometa in the face.

JCR was enthusiastic about the (remote, unlikely) possibility of a Reina Isis/Skadi apuesta match. Based on this match, that would’ve bee one of the worst matches of all time.

Hechicero was a guest commentator for what appears to be the first time.


Niebla Roja just watching it go by

This show was too boring to review each individual match. It was probably too boring to watch, but that I did.

Everything was the same or less than you’d expect – the last two matches were disappointing, though the main event was disappointing in the same way of all Niebla Roja matches. Cometa/Cavernario feuding is good, but the match to set it up wasn’t much. The fourth match was the best match on the show with them going farther and longer than expected to make it worthwhile, but Stigma had a bad night. He would’ve been the worst wrestler on a show that didn’t have that women’s match.
