What happened: 

Titan beating Mephisto set up a title match.

Villano III was honored after the third match. The fourth match has no entrances. Dragon Rojo brings his gun anyway. He blasts it after everyone’s introduced, frightening everyone in the ring.

Thoughts: 

good work everyone

Everything on this show – at least the matches I bothered to watch – was fine if not spectacular. This was probably slightly the best, though it had its own slight falls. Atlantis can only wrestle one match, and he’s wrestling it a lot. Soberano got lost badly in the third fall, but the rudos worked better to get him on track than those in the second match with something similar happened. The NGD otherwise were doing their B match, and they did it fine enough for a Tuesday.

Titan/Mephisto should be good but some of the other people in the semi-main should be good, but the trios match wasn’t really. The tecnicos were fine, but Ephesto & Luciferno had some painfully bad moments. There’s some record low efforts on dive catches in the fall for the rudos. It was like their arms weren’t working. It was amazing the tecnicos went for the second round of dives, but at least it went better.

The fourth match didn’t interest me a lot early, but it did pick up a lot in the long third fall. It’s one of those matches where just one fall could’ve been plenty because there wasn’t much you had to see from the first couple. Cometa looked good, and I liked Dragon Rojo being sneaky and ready to finish off Bleu Panther at the end.

The women’s lightning match was one of those low ceiling/high floor matches that seem to be done in the lesser divisions. Everything was ok and nothing went wrong, but that’s mostly because Jarochita didn’t try anything difficult. That match was successful if not interesting. It’s good to give Jarochita chances, but I’m not sure if this really counted as one.
