What Happened:

Monito splash

Everything after match two was in the Dia de los Muertos setup, with losers being dragged away.

Terrible and Último Guerrero wrestle the main event in their evil gold outfits, as they’d been working as a solider and the king all night prior. The other guardians had been helping the rudos all night, and come into the Guerrero huddle dance between the second and third fall.


The main event felt like a minimal performance given who was involved, with everyone doing a fraction of what they normally do. The crowd was enough into this show to still be into this match and the rest. Still, there was no urgency to have a great match on today’s show even in those that a halfway decent lineup. This finish was dive run right into the submission. The only point to this match was to get the rudo win so all the guardian could come in and pose with Último Guerrero, and they did that.

Stukita with a slightly bigger splash

Seeing Angel de Oro & Niebla Roja three straight shows is not particularly interesting. It was alright, the crowd was very into Diamante Azul. Shooting Barbaro Cavernario’s fall ending dropkick thru a cloud of smoke is probably the worst Dia de la Muertos related camera choice they’ve made on these three shows. At least they got a replay.

What I learned from the women’s match is Dalys wins a lot. Tiffany looked terrible. Metálico is still working out how to give people the Air Raid Crash or Marcela has no idea how to take it. (She did have an idea to get the win one move later.)

The lightning match was a standard two dive, a bunch of pinfall attempts outing. Disturbio is being booked higher of late, but gets less chance to do the personality stuff that made him stick out earlier. He still reacts to the match, which is more than you can say for Esfinge.

Sonic mortal

The mini rudos realized you can trip Stukita after the second moonsault. This is a great leap in knowledge. The rest of the match didn’t feature any other great leaps of knowledge, was about normal for the minis in this spot, but lacked any excitement. Stukita shows dedication thru a wide variety of masks.

Artillero & Bengala literally walking thru the opener was embarrassing. Grako did nothing worth remembering. I didn’t have trouble identifying Sonic on indie shows but, in this match, his mask looks like Flyer is doing some fusion with Avern. I won’t be checking him out much if he gets stuck in more matches like this, but he seemed fine here.
