What happened: 

Mephisto fouling Niebla Roja set up a singles match next week.

Pólvora and Felino had random issues in their match, following up from their lightning match last week. Tirantes heroically pretended it wasn’t happening.


a Kawato dropkick

Poor Tiger got pinned his own family’s hold. (Same thing happened to his father moments later.) At least it was in a match where both men were trying, wrestling a technical style for two rudos. Any match with a powerslam on the floor can’t be all bad, but it was just an exchange of random moves and no more.

The third fall of the tercera was unexpectedly interesting, or I’ve been wore down by CMLL b-shows so much that the slightest increase seems like a big deal. I was looking back at NGD results the other day because I couldn’t remember if NGD had every lost a team title match. They have, and they also did when Universo 2000 Jr. was in the Guadalajara team before Forastero existed. Universo has gotten to OK and looked it here, but that would’ve been bad news if that had stuck as the trio. The técnicos were better than usual even if I’m not quite sure what Drone was trying to do on his apron dive.
