What happened: 

Rush fouled Último Guerrero again in the third fall, and his group took the Guerreros masks.

Villano III was remembered after the minis title match.



I picked the fourth match to watch because Triton was wearing the Fish outfit and that’s never not funny, and also to see if I could figure out where Titan broke his hand. Those aren’t strong reasons for anyone else to watch this. Neither team is particularly energetic, with the técnicos taking a lot of low blow shortcuts as part of the comeback. Titan’s injury is a freak bit, and easy to miss as it comes right at the end of the match. The only alert something’s happened is the doctor going over to check on him, and the CMLL cameras ignore it.

Joker didn’t show any hidden depths in his big singles title match. He did some moves fine while keeping an average pace and not breaking out something anything bigger for the moment. Joker did seem a better base than in previous matches and helped make Shockercito’s offense the highlight of the match. This was still a pretty solid match and better than the regular Puebla fare, it just wasn’t something extraordinary.
