Noti AAA actually has names and photos of all the people in La Llave a la Gloria, which would’ve been something helpful to see before the event. Heavy Metal and Los Perros del Mal are interviewed about being in the Torneo TripleMania and there’s scenes from the pilgrimage.
Once again, Texano & Fantasma had no problems with each other to start the match. They lasted the whole way thru this time, with Mundo being distracted after putting Texano thru a chair and Fantasma cradling Mundo for the win. Texano flipped a switch and went back to hating Fantasma as soon as the match was over, but didn’t attack him this week.
No one seems bothered by Pirata betraying the OGT the last time we saw him, but Averno does accidentally foul Pirata while trying to take out Lanzeloth. (Pirata weirdly kicks at the same time, and they cut in a way where it’s tough to know what happened except for Pirata’s selling.) The OGT attack Pirata for losing but Parka scares them off. The técnicos angry at Ricky Marvin in his last appearance disappeared here.
Mascara de Bronce is actually wearing bronce this week. The idea was the last person left would be last in Torneo TripleMania. That didn’t happen. In real time, we already knew Niño Hamburugesa and the Clowns were in other matches, and not Torneo TripleMania.
Just a total irrelevant show, feeling even more so watching it after TripleMania. The only things that really mattered where the plugs for the mask match airing later, and I was surprised they didn’t more of them.
The main event was not really an interesting match, but one where they were over just being out there so it’s hard to blame them for not doing a lot. The small ringside area and small barriers to the front row seemed to convince them to cut the dives for the night too. They worked US tag style, which Tirantes took as having to make sure Texano didn’t get in – only, he missed counting pinfalls because he was keeping Texano out. That didn’t seem to be the plan. It also made it silly late when they match completely broke down fir the entire second half.
The semimain was nothing much of a match, with not a lot of time and most of that spent with La Parka comedy. I barely noticed Ricky and Argenis in the match, they got so little of it. The one spot Lanzeloth did with Averno was good. No one seems to paying attention to this OGT/Parka/Pirata angle, especially not the people involved in it.
The battle royal here was better laid out than CMLL one and the crowd cared more about this one than they ever have for a CMLL one, but it was still not much good. Some really slow looking eliminations and bad looking eliminations, not much action good in between. The idea here was the técnicos couldn’t do anything against the big guys without teaming up, which meant a lot of cool stuff was stopped halfway thru and the Clowns mostly dominated things.
