What happened:

this is more along the lines of what Negro Navarro taught her

Diamante Azul fought as a rudo, but cleanly beat Marco in two straight falls to set up a title match next week.

Gran Guerrero fouled Niebla Roja quickly in their final exchange as part of their usual feuding.

Morphosis’ again wrestlers in his mask, the one he lost. The rudos jump the técnicos, so there’s not much time before the match for him to remove it. It finally settles down before the third fall, and the commissioner stops the match to insist he unmask then. Morphosis does his best to ignore the commissioner and isn’t going to unmask until Tirantes stops him from fighting on. (Notably, Morphosis’ mask is laced all the way up – he was never planning on just wearing it for his entrance and taking it off, he wasn’t planning on removing it so it take some time for him to get it off.) The announcers suddenly remember Morphosis is supposed to be unmasked when the commissioner gets involved.

the end

This appears to be his last match in CMLL, as he was officially announced as appearing on TripleMania a few days later and had been said to be appearing there for a while. Despite that, in probably their last match as a trio (since only Olímpico & Kraneo are left) in the arena they debuted in, Los Invasors win the match without getting beat. They’re disqualified for a planned excessive DQ in the second fall, and Blue Panther & Morphosis have a double pin in the third fall. Kraneo beats Soberano in the first, and Olímpico finishes with a win on The Panther in the third.

Disturbio and Paris are seconds, though they both take a moment to turn up. Zeuxis grabs a bottle from a fan at one point in the third fall to swing at Sugehit. It does not connect, and Sugehit gets it herself – but doesn’t swing because she doesn’t want to be disqualified in a the title match. Zeuxis uses something resembling Puma’s submission hold to win the first match; it isn’t exactly it, but it’s along those lines.



The fourth match is an energetic and long match between two usual teams. The técnicos, especially Soberano and T. Panther, work fast and kept the match from dragging down to a slower pace like might be expected with the Invasors. Kraneo took his usual big of big bumps and destroyed Soberano well. The third fall kept going, but in an interesting way, and this had more life than most matches o this show. This just crossed the line of good for me.

Sugehit/Zeuxis was a good title match and worth watching, but I kind of wonder if this feud peaked a while back and they’re kind of going too long. This was worked a different way, and they’re trying different things to make it seem fresh, but they’ve been at this feud for so long that it’s really tough to make this feel special. I think it’ll still be good match on 09/16, because the stakes and because most people will not have watched all the months of lead up, but nothing’s really happened here since the title change and it’s hard to get past that. Maybe it’s just because the “should this be in the main event?” discussion was in my mind watching this; this match didn’t feel like an Anniversary main event or even necessarily a breakthru women’s match, but a well worked midcard feud. All that said, the bottle bit killed me, the finish was pretty good, and this was an upper level match for a b-show title defense.
