What happened:

Último Guerrero unmasked Sansón in the semi-main. Rush faked a foul from Carístico in the main event.


these kicks look better

The main event wasn’t much of a match before the faked foul finish out of nowhere and meaning nothing. The first two falls had little to them (except for Carístico deciding he wasn’t going to take Rush’s dropkick.) It has Tirantes working rudo for no particular reason, and at least he was giving more effort to that than the wrestlers were giving towards the match. Pass on this.

The semi-main was a long way to go to finish with Último Guerrero unmasking Sansón for no real reason. The match felt like it was building to a big third fall that never really happened. There’s a Gran Guerrero/Cuatrero chop fight early in that fall that doesn’t have an ending, both guys just look at the crowd and move onto something else, and that’s the entire match. Los Guerreros working as the técnicos isn’t much of a surprise.
