What happened: 

Cavernario pulled Soberano’s mask for the DQ, setting up a singles match next week.

Pequeño Violencia fouled Acero for no real reason. That was really it.


a lot for an opening match

The main event was the usual feud build, including Cavernario running from Soberano and them only in the ring wrestling a short portion of the match. Mistico’s dive at the end looked great but this didn’t generally turn into anything big. Weird to see Volador get pinned at all in a third fall, even with Mr. Niebla grabbing the ropes to do so.

Everyone looked fine in the semimain. There were a few neat things here or there – Rey Cometa doing the shhhhhh slap spot but Okumura actually just blocking it was a nice twist on the routine – and it was overall solid match. I don’t want to keep talking about Kawato in every match, but it felt like he was in so much of this match. I think Idol did his moonsault and did his dance and hung out with Mije a lot. Worse jobs to have.

Ephesto & Rey Bucanero finished with a run of both men going for moves, failing at it, and getting caught in other moves. They’re old and slow and it was an idea anyway. Rey Bucaero’s inverted STF is also an idea, albeit one which looks awkward to get on every time. Bucanero didn’t seem a big of catching Ephesto’s tope. This was not the worst match ever and they didn’t over extend themselves by trying things they could not do, but there’s no great need to see it.

The women’s match here was smoother than the H2L match, though it got significantly less time. Zeuxis & Kaho had good chemistry in this match, Kaho survived getting crushed by Zeuxis’ knees to get in a diving headscissors near the end. Maybe they’ll do the women’s match. The ending was very Tuesday quick, coming out of nowhere.

Zeuxis & Kaho
