What happened:

your weekly dose of Audaz

This is the Homenaje a Dos Leyendas show for Puebla, with Estrella Blanca honored.

The finish of the main event – LA Park handing his mask to UG to draw a DQ – set up challenges for a rematch for the following week.

Terrible has a shoulder sling on his right side following Friday’s match (and injury) but doesn’t seem to be too bothered by it. La Bestia del Ring pinned Niebla Roja as Angel de Oro pinned Terrible in the third fall. In theory, both Niebla Roja & Terrible were the captains, but no captains were ever announced. Los Ingobernables jumped the técnicos before the match, and the ring announcer cut his introduction short. Miguel Linares knew who the captains were and it seemed consistent during the match, just a little confusing for the finish. This also was rematches the following week.


Guerrero powerbombs

LA Park was on for his return to Arena Puebla. This is LA Park doing headscissors and taking big bumps for dropkicks even early on. Último Guerrero works great as an opponent for him, and one that is fresh in CMLL at least. This match is really about those two, with Volador doing less than an up and down Hijo de LA Park. Euforia has to save Hijo de LA Park from himself on a complicated headscissors, though skinny Park does better later. The hidden highlight of the match is Gran Guerrero just refusing to sell LA Park’s belt shots, Hijo de LA Park getting legitimately angry over it and LA Park doing the same no sell to Gran Guerrero in revenge later. They’ve all very macho. The finish is screwy but that is part of the bargain with LA Park matches. Not usually part of the bargain is Último Guerrero having to point LA Park at the right way to go right before that, as I guess Park forgets he’s supposed to cause the lesser Guerreros to go away before the fake mask pull. UG is really obvious about it, which causes more problems for me than LA Park kicking Tirantes and getting away with it. There’s no problem with kicking Tirantes at any point.

I’m convinced Audaz is better than Templario but that still means Audaz is really good. Both shined in the tercera. It also featured Drone having one of those occasional strong performances that really make you sad he screwed up his career. Borderline match.
