What happened: 

Gran Guerrero got 125% of this

Not much. Ultimo Guerrero fouled Niebla Roja but this show wasn’t even worth bothering to do the “change your mask or else!” challenge. There was nothing to talk about from the other matches.

My only note is “JCR compared Tigre Rojo Jr. to Satoru Sayama”, which I suppose is very accurate in that they both have done Tiger characters and not really actually in any other way (though Tigre Rojo Jr. is fine.)



The matches weren’t much either, though they weren’t bad. I didn’t really pick up on the shorter match times while watching the show, but it felt like it helped a little bet. I’ve been mentioning short matches should mean better paces and it definitely felt that way in the opener, one of the better ones they had in some time. (Astro helps. Astro is very fast.)

On the other hand, the 17 minute match wasn’t far off good either, with Olimpico (seems like a Zavala replacement) adding more than usual and some fun from Virus being really aggressive. The semimain match was disappointing, because Hechicero working a lot with Atlantis seemed fun for him but didn’t leave great matchups for the rest of the match. The main event was fine, but not at the level of their better matches, not close to the Friday match with the same submission.
