What happened:

Halcon Suriano is quick to holds as well

Los Ingobernables were DQed for excessive violence in the first fall of the main event. Rush faked a foul in the third fall to draw the win and set up a singles match for next week.

Star Jr. & Sagrado went to a time limit draw. Sagrado blocked a moonsault about twenty seconds before the time limit, then covered Star Jr. just as time expired. Star Jr. still immediately kicked out. Sagrado unmasked and powerbombed Star Jr. well after the time limit.

Thoughts:

The main event was not actively bad, but it was also pretty much a nothing match. Los Ingobernables weren’t strongly into the match and Atlantis was involved, so this wasn’t going to be much. The first two falls weren’t much, the third fall was long without being interesting and with a bad ending.

Audaz flip rana

I am often hard on Audaz. I think it’s the cross-promotion comparisons; the AAA young flyers are having good/great matches fairly often and Audaz is in a lot of forgettable matches. The AAA high flyers are also working with great bases, while Audaz did a flip rana onto to Universo 2000 Jr. here. There’s got to be some allotment for degree of difficulty. Tiger was much more Audaz’s speed and those two have the best chemistry together. Maya & Panther seemed to take a step back to let Audaz do his stuff, and his stuff looked as good as it ever has here. The finish was neat, a smart reversal that only happens with Blue Demon. This was much better than a usual Tuesday match, and it was no surprise they were still picking up money while the next match came out.

The lightning match was Star Jr.’s best match in sometime. His big dives, both to the ramp and to the floor, looked out of control and yet really cool. Sagrado kept up with Star Jr.’s offense well while still looking sharp in his own moments. There were a couple of good near endings near the end, especially the Spanish Fly that could’ve ended it. The match ending indecisively with no plan to follow up is disappointing, but a standalone good lightning match is still a good lightning match.

Is Sonic the new Camaleon or the new Fresbee? He’s better than the openers but he’s small so he’s never escaping them (or being booked more than twice a month), so I guess it comes down to him forming his own lucha libre promotion or not.

  1. Yeah it’s kinda unfair to compare him directly to AAA guys, he’s also not going to get involved with flaming tables and giant wood portraits of Total Traitors (with Dave The Clown)
