Tonight is the first show for CMLL post-Fantastica Mania, so the main event logically includes – just one wrestler who was on the tour? Los Ingobernables (with the returning Terrible) face Diamante Azul, Penta, and Phoenix in tonight’s Arena Mexico. My theory has been the original plan for the last few weeks was Rush repeating his feud with Diamante Azul and shifted to Euforia only due to Azul’s groin injury. Azul returned last week, and he’s back opposite Rush. It is nice for the Lucha Brothers to be back, but it’s not an exciting use of them when one or the other will be working across from Bestia del Ring.
The fourth and fifth have much more Fantastica Mania returns. Caristico & Volador, now back on the same side, team-up with Atlantis against Ultimo Guerrero, Cavernario and Gran Guerrero. Everyone in this match besides Atlantis is a champion and will be part of the Universal tournament beginning next week. The match might be good by itself, as should be Soberano versus Templario.
Titan, Flyer and Audaz would be a fun team if they weren’t facing Shocker, Felino, and Vangellys. Likewise, the Panther kids & Rey Cometa versus Misterioso, Sagrado and Universo 2000 Jr. shows the weakness on the rudo side. Grako & Coyote might be part of the solution, though they need more work. They’ll get some with Oro & Electrico.
Diamante Azul wants to win the Universal championship. There are people I’d like to win but I don’t see a great favorite so maybe.
Black Panther hopes his feuds with Misterioso & Tiger resolve. I don’t think he’s going to be that lucky.
Hijo del Vikingo is on Impact tonight, facing Rich Swann. All Impact shows stream live fof free on their Twitch channel, starting at 9 pm CT.
