What happened:

just watch Hechicero

Volador beat Carístico with a mask pull, setting up a singles match. The post-match back and forth nearly went as long as the match.

Diamante Azul made a surprise return from injury.

Skadi (Marcela) and Tyson la Bestia (Marcela) were the seconds for the women’s title match.


Volador spent most of the match smiling about the evil things he was doing to Carístico. I think he is really happier being a rudo but he was also not at all taking this seriously and wasn’t really bothered about it. He put more effort into putting up “2” for the two fall win after the match. This was about as good as most feud building matches.

It is possible to have a good match with a lot of people working here and one Atlantis not doing much. It does not appear possible to have a good match with two Atlantis’ not doing much and Diamante Azul might as well have been Atlantis. They really just have borrowed King Jaguar from the cemita stand and sent him back out here because Diamante Azul did almost nothing and actually nothing right. Diamante Azul and Gran Guerrero getting lost in the third fall provided some entertainment value but I’m not sure that’s the way you want to do it. Soberano looked great and was in the wrong match.

Metalica was disappointing. Maybe my hope for something new. She didn’t bring much to the table that isn’t seen in normal trios matches. She also had moments of looking tentative of off – the bear hug spot was not good. The top spot was weird, with Metalica not really coming close to hitting Marcela, taking out Skadi. This was more a lengthy Marcela exhibition, Metalica handled that fine, probably better than most of the rudas would’ve done in that spot, but she didn’t show anything would be promising on her own. The match was fine but not hopeful.

never fun
