What happened:

In angles that exist but have never gone anywhere, Misterioso is still taking masks after wins.

Thoughts:

weekly Fiero highlight

The main events breezed thru their match without doing match, and then Mr. Niebla got dumped on his head by Diamante Azul for the finish. Zacarias running away in fear was the correct reaction. I don’t know what was supposed to be happening on the plancha spot before hand, but neither did they and it didn’t matter much. Nothing on this show mattered much.

The semimain had Blue Panther weirdness. Though, if they’re doing bits where Dragon Rojo of all people is out manuevering Blue Panther on the mat, then maybe Panther needs to call it a day. Angel de Oro coming back to quickly beat Hechicero to win the first fall right away was unexpected, and it was one of those unexpected endings Panther matches.

The lightning match was the match of the night for me. They had a few big spots (Panther’s missed plancha, his topes later) to build the match around, a competitive feeling the rest of the way, and everything looked pretty solid. It was pretty enjoyable for a Tuesday match.

foreshadowing (but its on a Tuesday so no one cared)

Tiffany had a tough time in the women’s match, especially early on. It was an ordinary match otherwise, with a bit of focus on Sugehit leading into her mask match.

I watched most of a Nitro match because Forastero is pretty fun with these técnicos. They all couldn’t work with him, but they seemed to be trying to make it work and it didn’t drag on as much as some of these segundas.

Fiero might have been toned down after his brush with death the previous week, or his lack of highspots may have just been usual CMLL variance. Magia Blanca ended up getting as much spotlight as him. Blanca is looking better of late, though he’s still not as good as Fiero.

running seems like the right option
