What happened: 

Suicide seems to be doing well

There’s frequent promos for Wagner/Psycho airing on Televisa. Dr. Wagner was unbothered by the loss, and unmasked Psycho Clown for the umpteenth time. He got off pretty easily, maybe it’s all the practice.

The Kross/Bronce segment starts with Pimpinela being brought to be praised for her 30 year career and her win over Mamba. Pimpinela barely getting to talk before Kevin Kross attacks her. I have no idea why. Mascara de Bronce runs out face Kevin Kross, and of course gets knocked down to start the match. Pimpinela rolls out of the ring and ceases to exist. Kross only takes offense from Bronce when he’s not paying attention, and eventually just no sells a tope. He kicks the (new) ref after the match too.

Bronce gets tossed

Divina & Mamba were friends last time we saw them, but are enemies here. Marty was a rudo when we’ve see him. Elegido gets the only noticeable crowd response. Not sure what causes Bengala to bleed early, but he spends the match with it coming of it his mask, and Suicide rubs it all over himself during the early beatdown. This matches ten minutes and then, after trying hard to win the match, Marty attacks Elegido from behind for no particular reason and the match ends about 15 seconds later.

Noti AAA had Vampiro raving about La Llave a La Gloria and all the positive feedback of his changes, and Psycho Clown meeting with players on Club America.


Suicide springboard DDDT

This was a rather nothing happening show to be the last show many people will see prior to TripleMania. They did the token Wagner/Psycho feuding in the main event but that didn’t even come off as a big deal. The other matches had nothing to do with anything going on Saturday. This is a great test case for nothing really mattering, because they did nothing here.

The main event was an ordinary trios match, with La Parka seemingly getting as much time as Psycho Clown, though they did get around to Psycho/Wagner at the end. It didn’t feel as big as it should, but I supposed it doesn’t really matter at this point. Averno & Chessman stooged well for Parka – it’s like working with a less mobile Super Porky, Averno has this down. Psycho’s looked good and was pretty over, there just wasn’t the anticipation moments when he and Wagner were in you’d expect for a big match. Argenis was also there.

Mascara de Bronce is on the wrong ride

Kross/Bronce was not really a match in the usual sense. Kross just squashed Mascara de Bronce in a way where Bronce is pretty exposed as nothing more than an unimportant object for Kross to toss around. I wish they would’ve done more to make Kross more interesting before they decided to make him the top rudo or their version of Brock Lesnar on their roster, but there we are.

The atomicos seemed to be a dare to see what would happen if they dropped Marty in the weirdest possible match. He did far more teaming with Elegido against the Clowns than you’d expect, but maybe it makes more sense if you knew it was just a setup for Marty to attack Elegido. This also felt pointless and not very good. Suicide & Bengala were very good against each other, even though Suicide should be about half blind with his bandanna pulled down to Gedo levels. The exoticos were OK, but this match is a waste of time.
