Vangellys beating Último Guerrero set up a title match for next week, though Guerrero wanted anyone besides Tirantes to be the referee after some slow counts in this match.

Mephisto unmasked Místico for the DQ, setting up a rematch.


Vangellys controlled the main event with slow unconvincing brawling. UG can get over with the crowd so easily that this should’ve been easy for Vangellys to be compelling opposition. Instead, Guerrero seemed to be fighting Tirantes more directly. This match was a drag to watch, slow most of the time and slower still when they had stop to argue with the referee every so often. Último might have had a better match with an inanimate object if he could’ve had it without Tirantes getting the spotlight on himself. Do give credit for Vangellys taking the front superplex, but he otherwise had an underwhelming night.

The semi-main was quick and skinny, down to the bare-bones of what you might expect between those teams. They had dives to close it out, so it didn’t feel completely mailed in. It just felt most of the way there. Místico & Mephisto looked off together to start, which doesn’t quite set up a single match.
