What Happened:

Casas took a big superplex too

Mephisto kept the CMLL Welterwieght championship in the main event.

Mr. Niebla bumped into Pompin in the third fall in the semifinal, and Rush wasted no time in fouling him. Rush otherwise wrestled the match in his tecnico persona – still antagonistic to the crowd, but getting along fine with his teammates. Niebla & Rush teased a match post match but weren’t given a microphone to do so.

As usual, Niebla Roja didn’t want to use rudo tactics and didn’t get along with his partners. He still ended up unmasking Angel de Oro at the end, which set up a rematch for the following week. It seemed more like they were setting up a match with Niebla Roja & Angel de Oro at this point rather than a team.

Thoughts: 

Rey Samuray ramp springboard armdrag

The title match was fun for seeing Negro Casas in a title match environment Mephisto was no different than usual, just moving from one usual big move to check it off his list, but Casas brought some good energy and emotion that made it feel more than just a recitation of routine spots. He probably doesn’t need to take a Super Devil’s Wings at his age but more credit for him doing it. Hijo del Signo, as Casas’ second, seemed to be more into this match than any of his own.

The rest of the matches were completely forgettable B-show stuff. Rey Samuray looked good in his match, but there’s nothing interesting about the rest of this show.

maybe no more Pompin ref bumps
