What happened:

Sagardo fouled Drone on a corner handstand, or at least that was the attempt. It is a tiny bit suspicious there’s a lot of Sagrado related mayhem of late but it still may mean nothing.

Thoughts:

Star Jr.

Ring of Honor star Rush won a fall in seconds and apparently didn’t realize they still do a three fall, judging by the way he gave up fighting for about three minutes. Angel de Oro laying on the mat doing nothing didn’t help. The third fall was full of starts and stops, not getting to any flow until late. Even then, they messed up a spot so badly that I’m not sure if it was a Destroyer and Code Red. This is skippable.

The fourth match didn’t totally come together. Maya frustrating Hechicero by outwrestling him is fun, but the rest of the match didn’t come together to something great. Audaz looked sloppy in his big third fall run, not that it stopped CMLL from replaying his misapplied ringpost headscissors. Vangellys wasn’t an ideal fit for this match and still won.

The third match felt off. The long two falls for a match that isn’t going three is always strange, it just feels off when those falls are going much longer than usual. Drone was off in this entire match, up to losing his mask taking a Canadian Destroyer from Tiger in the second fall. Star Jr. had his struggles too.

Aguila Blanca showed more as a guest wrestler than most of the segunda tecnicos, including the two segunda tecnicos in this match. They opened the match open more to allow him to do dives that aren’t normally allowed in the second match, but he also hit his big spots when given that chance. Being a fresh person in a stagnant group of people also helps (but can quickly go away with uninspiring performances; see Magia Blanca.) I don’t know if he would be this good every week but he was good in this match. Dick Riviere took a kick to the face nicely.
