Rey Bucanero jumped Atlantis. Rush decided to watch from the outside as his partners got beat up. The rudos eventually dragged him in for him to get beat. Rush participated in the second fall like a normal técnico for the most part. When Bucanero reversed a ‘rana on Atlantis, Rush reached in the ring to help hold Atlantis down. That seemed more like Rush screwing around than a designed part of the finish. Bucanero challenged Atlantis to a title match next week. Atlantis wanted a mask vs hair match. Bucanero said no.
Misterioso took Oro’s mask after his match. He pointed at (guest commentator) Tiger too, who’s had a problem with Misterioso stealing his mask in the past.
Signo is a sub in the second match for Arkangel de la Muerte, who was later explained to have missed this match due to feeling ill. Arkangel passed away later this night from a heart attack.
Raziel and Tirantes have a reoccurring argument thru the first half of the match. I’m not even sure when it starts, maybe even as early as Tirantes saying something during an opening Raziel handshake spot with Tirantes. Whatever it is, Raziel keeps finding ways to walk over to Tirantes and have an angry word with him. This is highlighted by Raziel going for six straight pinfalls of Robin specifically to make Tirantes have to get up and down repeatedly.
Los Guerreros are really enjoying finding ways to make Angel de Oro’s life miserable. Otherwise, the main event had about as use to me as it did Rush. He was laughing while half heatedly brawling with Gran Guerrero after something went wrong, and he seemed to be fooling around on the finish. Atlantis and Bucanero were involved with the finish despite not doing all that much. I am going to force myself to watch the title match without much hope.
Shocker doing middle rope elbow drops while Templario meanders around the ramp is not an ideal use of talent. Shocker was in for a lot of this match, while Templario did little of what makes him interesting out of his finish. Everyone else kept it relatively simple. The Panther/Hechicero mat exchange to start was fun, and there wasn’t much more on that level. Templario/Cometa would be fun if they ever did the lightning match.
The lightning match was the expected combination of fun moves between Drone & Audaz, and it was enough to outweigh not having an ending. That match itself could’ve used a better structure – Drone superkicking Audaz off the apron to set up his dive twice was silly – but Audaz does a lot of tricky stuff. The novelty of getting to see him in this environment, and see that he has plenty more he can do than he even could show in ten minutes, was a good sign. I think Drone could’ve done more than he did here too, and it felt like a pace to kill ten minutes rather than either guy trying to win. And yet this was still the match I liked the most from this show.
