What Happened

Terrible again sided with Rush over his teammates in this no-stakes match, fouling Kraneo to end the match. Rush unmasked Kraneo and teased a match next with him & Terrible vs Kraneo & Bucanero next week. That didn’t exactly happen.


the one fall NGD won

The main event began with Angel de Oro & Niebla Roja unmasking, then Mistico trying to do the same thing before Niebla Roja stopped him. That’s exactly the mood they were in for this one, having some fun and also doing some wrestling. This was the usual post-singles match trios main event, only with no singles match and a bit more time. The crowd seemed to be having fun with all the posing. The work wasn’t great, and it’s nothing you need to go back to at this date. Mistico was in Korakeun Hall trios match here, easy enough to get a reaction that he should still stay over after his athletic prime. This match didn’t use up much of that athletic prime.

I wanted to write about at least two matches, and there wasn’t a second appealing match on this show. There was barely one appealing match on the show. I thought the opener might be worth a shot, and would be more interesting than watching the women’s match. This was a mistake. The danger in being so far behind this is you forget you’ve read things, like how this opener went near 20 minutes without accomplishing much. Action picked up a little at the end of the third fall but I was long tuned out by then. This is an “OK” match that got rated that way just to not give it a second thought.
