Titan worked as a rudo in the main event, though he won cleanly. Soberano asked for a rematch.
Rush removed Kraneo’s mask in the second fall for the DQ to lose in straight falls. Rush then insulted the fans and fat people for a couple of minutes. Kraneo challenged him to a singles match.
NGD retained the trios championship in a match pushed back a week.
Soberano & Titan meshed very well in the main event. Titan had rudo moments and cut a rudo promo post-match, but still worked his in enough of his usual offense. It felt more like a big tournament final than Titan having to betray his usual nature to make the match work. The eventual singles match is going to be must-see. The other four guys really faded into the background and it didn’t feel like there was a lot more than that feud, but they got me excited for that feud.
The semimain was standard feud build up stuff, with the rudos taking most of the match. The latest Ingobernables jerseys are unpleasantly gaudy, and will probably sell pretty well. Rush laying on Kraneo while starting his promo was the best move of the match. It was a simple night for the non-Kraneo técnicos.
The NGD/Infierno match was a big improvement from the match that set up this one. There was a bit more effort from both teams and faster pace at times, though it tended into trios cliché spots instead of something interesting. The reason to watch this match is more just to see how over the NGD are as a técnicos for the night. The crowd goes insane when they make their third fall técnico and are strongly behind them all night long, something that doesn’t always happen in these rudo/rudo matches. The NGD’s strengths are not as técnicos right now, though they do show some unusual things for them in the first fall, they definitely have grown a fanbase with their success.
The second match felt like a tercera and was overall alright. Okumura got the 450 knees to the midsection in the first fall, thanks to a combination of Maya position and Triton landing. He lived, to watch as Triton slipped on a multiple springboard spot in the second fall. It finally went right for Triton in the third fall with Universo 2000 Jr., which led me to believe he might now be the best rudo of these three. Kawato’s attempt at doing the cartwheel out of a headscissors was as charming as it was awful.
The opener had more of the main roster group than usual. They were better off with Star Jr. & Disturbio and the match had more to it as a result. Samuray looked good and worked as well with Signo as anyone does. The end wasn’t great; Star Jr. needed to find something to do instead of standing in place for five seconds after Disturbio hit the ropes and dived into him, and Signo looked silly pinning Arkalis while holding one of his shoulders off the mat so he couldn’t touch the ropes.
