What happened: 

Terrible big slaps are great

Rush challenged Marco to at title match next week after his win, and Marco accepted with a punch.

The first fall ends with the rarely seen over the top rope toss DQ. A Coliseo tag title challenge follows.

Thoughts:

this was smooth

The main event was another generic match. Marco brought good intensity to his feud with Rush. Rush brought Rush. Terrible walloped Sam hard by mistake. I don’t know why we get so much of the Guerreros as técnicos but they were fine. This was better than having Pierroth involved.

Disappointingly short. Sky Team looked great when they were in control of the match; they were in control of the match for something less than 3 minutes. The rudos were good, but this was one of those CMLL matches where it felt like the some of the participants would rather be doing something else. No need to go out of your way to see this.

The fourth match was more exciting the undercard matches, and the two teams are getting better at working at each other. The same headscissors blocked into a powerbomb spot worked a lot better this week. The crowd was also shockingly into this match, and not just about Stigma. The técnicos still are far from my favorites and I wasn’t into to this as much as those fans, but I can’t complain too much about getting an actual big 2v2 match.

Cuatrero powerbomb

The women’s match qualified as good, but I didn’t really get into it all that much. It’s the usual problems with Dalys; she’s ambitious in trying stuff in the ring, but it looks forced. The Gory Stretch spot came together awkwardly, where it wasn’t clear who was doing what until they finally got the move together. She’s done the double wristlock cradle then she did to win the first fall here. Both women pulled off a lot but it never came off like a big match.

The first two matches were ordinary. Joker & Diabolika were tougher to tell apart with matching outfits, which doesn’t say much for Joker. Rey Apocalipsis had some energy and neat submissions.
