What happened:

they worked hard to get in this spot and it was at the halfway point of the match

Laredo took the pin in the three-way match but still asked for a title match. Fenix liked wrestling Laredo and said sure. Cage also made title challenge motions.

Máximo goes after La Mascara post-match, only Texano to come out and help his friends. Aerostar got unmasked.


AAA main events tend not to be strong and this wasn’t breaking that trend. A lot of meandering eventually set up a double dive table spot, which was good but not worth all that time. The técnicos didn’t do a whole lot afterward either, and those two dives at the end were both not much good. Pagano had a pretty amazingly botched spot but everything else was OK considering.

The three way was a great treat, a lot of action in a short amount of time. Cage can’t get that powerbomb catch to work with Fenix lately but the suplex on the floor followed by the Laredo Kid 450 splash was really good. Laredo Kid looked good in the match outside of a sequence where he and Cage weren’t on the same page. Laredo Kid and Fenix were spectacular, and Fenix & Cage can have a really good sequence was ease. This wasn’t quite as epic as the Aguascalientes Fenix/Bandido/Flamita match, though it also had a crowd who didn’t sound super into it. Still worth watching if you like the style.

Tito is stronger than three camera changes on one shot

I spend the first few minutes of three-way tag match distracted by trying to figure out what exactly the lineup was for his show. Those were the good moments, I should’ve been distracted while Los Mercenarios weren’t doing much when in charge. The comeback was good, with Park having a nice Spanish Fly and the Aerostar/Maximo dive spot being good, but this didn’t add up to a lot.

The second match didn’t go smoothly. Vikingo and Poder del Norte had all sort of issues on what was definitely supposed to be Vikingo’s big showcase. Golden Magic got an arm up to block a chair shot and got his forearm sliced open pretty significantly. Poder del Norte took a lot of the match like some of their other big wins lately, did look dominate at the end, but have put together more entertaining matches.

The Cancun was the better of the two women’s matches this week, but this still was better than average. The Keyra/Maravilla mat wrestling segment was good, though it seemed a little less coherent for a while after there. The closing stretch and the post-match brawl were fun. Scarlett got a few more moments in this match, and Hiedra continues her run of improved performances.
