What happened: 

Mephisto pulled Diamante Azul’s mask during his press slam and covered him. The referee initially ruled a win for the técnicos, but spotted Mephisto with Azul’s mask and called for the DQ. This turns out to go nowhere.


King Rocker lived

It was hard for me to find much to say about the show. The action was about normal for a B-show, with no match having a substance to get interested in. Everything was fine, it seemed like it was a fun time to be there, nothing was something you have to rush to watch. The fourth match did the best in bringing the crowd up, with the Hijos del Infierno doing a good job of stooging for these técnicos. The tercera seemed like an interesting match on paper but it lost me somewhere along the way. It was one of those matches that took a lot longer to watch than listed because I couldn’t stay focused on it. The main event was simple if success. Finlay looked the best he’s been in the third fall of that match, but he never totally fit in; I don’t think he or the rudos ever figured out a way to make his parts of matches interesting during his run
