The sound is off for nearly the complete first fall of the fourth match.
Magia Blanca, a late fill in for Sensei, tears his ACL at the end of his second match. Akuma just happens to fall on the back of Blanca’s leg taking an armdrag on Akuma.
CMLL Tuesday main events following a singles matches are never great. This one was especially nothing for two falls, even though they got more time than usual for this spot. The end of the second fall had some of the most transparent rudo feeding for rudo moves you’ll ever see. Action picked up a little bit in the third fall, until Atlantis came in. He did just get Mephisto up in the Atlantida, so point for him.
The title match was a standard Último Guerrero big match, up until Stuka got his foot on the ropes on the Guerrero Special. It seems like he’s aware enough of everyone catching on to the same thing finish every time that it’s not the ending right now, but there was no strong twist or novelty to the match to that point. Último Guerrero didn’t go thru everything he could do, but it felt about the same as normal. The sequence after Stuka got his foot on the ropes was surprising and the match itself was well done. Beyond that finish, it’s going to be hard to separate this from all the other UG singles matches.
Shocker pulling a middle rope elbow drop is more amazing then CMLL forgetting to turn the sound on. That happens all the time. That match wasn’t the greatest set up for the Panthers, though Hechicero seemed to have fun knocking Blue Sr. around. Felino seemed to be barely in the match, though it wasn’t much of a match to be in.
The tercera had the names from good matches but didn’t mesh in any way interesting. The match slowed way down with the rudos in charge, and the técnicos never made much of a comeback. Triton’s fish outfit doesn’t really work without the shirt. Okumura doesn’t really work as Triton’s base.
