What happened: 

Drone tope

Último Guerrero and Mistico feuded, UG getting away with a fairly blatant mask pull to win. This set up a singles match for next week.

The opener is Retro’s streaming debut, though he’s another one of those guys who’ve been on the fringes since last spring before disappearing for a while.


Puma diving elbow

The lightning match is a big move fight, Drone going for the dives early and Puma stopping him, until he finally gets them and Puma has to go at that level too. It’s a swiftly moving match, maybe too much at times – not a lot of stuff has as much as impact as it should because they’ve got to get on to the next thing. (The ten minute limit forces the pace, but sometimes it’d be much better if they could go 12 when they need to go 12.) It’s also maybe a little rapidly back and forth than it needs to be, when the impact of those moves could’ve added up a bit if someone was able to get in a few in a row. Still, it’s a lot of fun stuff in a short spurt of time, and I like that Drone is using the moonsault instead of the low impact double knees as his finish.

Fiero looks agile, is able to do a few spots that wows people even in the context of a limited opener. He’s going to have to escape these matches to go anywhere, but there’s some hope there.

Retro is much bigger than I realized, noticeably a head taller than everyone else in this match. He moves awkwardly and didn’t show much except a lot of one foot dropkicks. He looks like he hasn’t had many matches, but spent a lot of time arguing with the referee. He didn’t show much of the classic style they’re going for.
