UG comes out last for the main event, and immediately gets in a brawl with Rush. Rush ends up beating UG totally clean in straight falls.
First fall of the third match lasts an extra minute because Felino has to pull The Panther back in after Tirantes says he didn’t get the submission the first time. No one cared.
I fast forwarded thru most of the second match but had to stop and rewatch a horrendous missed headscsisors spot with Apocalipsis & Robin a few times.
The bit of UG & Rush brawling was good, and Rush winning clean was a surprising set up for the singles match. Didn’t seem like the rudos would be able to do anything with Mistico and Carístico and went out that way. No idea why Mascara didn’t catch Msitico’s dive at the end since it wasn’t going anywhere.
The semimain was mostly forgettable match. It’s crazy that Gran Guerrero/Niebla Roja had the same long term impact as Cholo/Canelo Casas, but Niebla Roja seems to be more over now months later.
The tercera was an uninteresting match for the CDMX guys. They allowed the Puebla guys work against the CMLL guys instead of each other, and that was the actual interesting part. Samuray stood out more than Malayo, and I think this was the first time he pulled off the springboard huracanrana.
The opener was the usual basic stuff. Maybe a bit more solid than usual, but not really a lot going on by design. Crowd didn’t react much, not even to the finish. Vega did a couple cool things, Meyer’s dive to the floor was impress. I’m amused the Puebla locals are using the Invasor bomb now that there’s not enough remaining Invasors to actually do it. Joker & Diabolika’s outfits are bright, and I hope it’s working for them on whatever indie shows they’re doing. Local tag teams haven’t gone anywhere in Arena Puebla itself.
