What happened:

Rush fouled Último Guerrero to set up a rematch next week.

Nitro catches a Pegasso second fall dive with a knee to the back. Pegasso continues but is in obvious pain and is strechered out at the end of the match.

Joker pinning Shockercito set up a title match for the following week.

Thoughts:

Triton

The main event was another match of the Guerreros playing técnicos. These rudos are better than Klan Kaoz but the match was definitely a b-show main event effort. They did a little bit in the third fall but were also mostly killing time to get to the finish. Zacarias hanging out with the Ingobernables is an unexpected highlight of this pairing.

The third and fourth matches were the same match: técnicos showcase early, rudos take over for a not interesting control period, técnicos make a quick comeback and win with a top rope move. The Angel de Oro match had higher high points and more obvious things which went wrong. The Triton match had Policeman as the best base of the group. Neither was anything but average TV material.

Joker got little offense in his match with Shockercito outside of his sudden submission to win. He didn’t have sort of impressive output you’d want for a title challenger no one believes is actually going to win. Joker’s jester mask looked fantastic but this was weirdly just a Shockercito showcase against an average base.
