What happened: 

Esfinge ends Hechicero thru the front row

Soberano & Cavernario feuded thru their match.

Hechicero kept the NWA Light Heavyweight Championship over Esfinge.

Rush fouled Valiente for pretty much no reason.


Hechicero/Esfinge was about as good as an Hechicero/Esfinge match. There was one badly blown spot, but that’s about what you expect with Esfinge. Hechicero got in most of his trademark spots, but his bigger skill was being there for Esfinge’s moves. He was smooth in the smaller moments and sold the big dives well. The match felt longer than I was expecting it go, though they never ran out of things to do. Hechciero has become a bit CMLL-ifed, focusing on a set of trademark spots instead of mixing it up, and I found myself wishing he brought a little bit more different stuff for a bigger match. Esfinge did about as much as Esfinge is going to do, and they reached the limit of that here.

Hechicero could probably use a second taunt

The other two matches didn’t give much to write about. The opener was a standard build up trios matches for Soberano and Cavernario. Audaz working with Dragon Rojo wasn’t always smooth, but Audaz can do enough stuff with the ropes that he’s going to be fine no matter who he’s working with. The main event seemed edited down, but it’s not like Los Ingobernables matches are long. The foul came in the flow of the match but also just felt like a quick end.
