What happened:

This was a nothing happening Tuesday show


The fourth match felt very familiar, with the Hijos del Infiernos wrestling a lot of similar trios matches and winning in the same fashion. It’s definitely less impressive the hundred time you’ve seen. The only way you’d be sure this was a different match was Titan’s Santa hat, carefully attached to his mask to never fall off.

Dragon Rojo not being able to try at all last week gave Misterioso an easy bar to surpass. Misterioso took a shoulder to the post bump out and ate many topes, so this was an improvement even without being good. Misterioso did try a slight bit more than normal, but there was nothing that made most of the crowd cared. The big news from this match was someone actually stopped the clock when the match was over instead letting it continue to run like usual.

The tercera special on Arena Mexico was fine, though it felt like it had less going on with it than the similar Puebla match. It also went pretty short, but that’s the way of most matches on these shows. Virus & Maya starting off on the mat had a little creatively from normal but it didn’t get a chance to totally develop.
