What happened:

new rudo trio with a corner triple dropkick

Último Guerrero stole Caristico’s mask and pinned him.


The main event was an easy match for a loud crowd. They hit the high points for the wrestlers. It didn’t have much depth to it and there’s nothing here that hasn’t been seen many times before, but it worked for Tuesday fans who just wanted fun moments.

The semi-main was another straight fall wins for the técnicos, though again the técnicos were fun before they got there. Triton seems more confident working with these guys and was a steadier presence in this match than Soberano. Stuka did his usual spots for a crowd who much appreciated them. The second fall slowed down when the rudo beatdown didn’t have much out of the ordinary, but the finish was well done. It’d be nice if these two fall cleans wins were going somewhere but let’s not get crazy.

The lightning match was good if also a bit disappointing in content. Flyer did some basic flying early, then just got beat up a lot by Templario without showing much. He was going for more of flying acrobatic moves than his power stuff, in a match that would’ve seemed set up for being a good base. Maybe there’s just not that much to be done with Flyer, but doing the handspring bit twice seemed unnecessary. The Destroyer seems more Flyer’s idea, because it’s always his idea.

a nice alternative out of the usual
