What happened:



this GIF isn’t for the botch but how annoyed Hechicero is about it

Mistico is the new king of Tuesday tourist shows. People like him there. They booed NGD. There wasn’t many of them but it is a very safe space for the gold and silver prince and maybe they’d like to take advantage of it. He jumped right into the finish instead. Oh well. This was otherwise the usual Tuesday night special, enough highspots for the casuals while not doing anything you haven’t seen before.

The semi-final was off a little bit at moments, especially early on, that kept it from being a match I’d recommend. It still felt better than the usual CMLL match, with Hechicero & Audaz particularly showing what they can do when they get a chance. It wasn’t one of the stronger Templario performances, notable being way out of position on a spot that mad Hechicero look bad (and he couldn’t hide how upset he was about it.) I wish Cometa’s new look came with a few new spots.

The lightning match had a good flow until the first big dive, then it kind of lost momentum a bit with Super Astro taking a header. There were some beautiful spots, but the match felt like it was drifting back and forth with no big impact. Astro’s tope was cool but really weirdly set up by Halcon doing a neck crank over the ropes to set it up. Both guys had good spots like that, more so for Halcon, it just didn’t feel complete. I’d like to see them against a rudo opponent in the same situation.

Good for Acero & Aereo for getting somewhat matching gear. They’ve progressed as a team by having dozens of this match. Acero is still better of the two but any progression is nice. If only it could go somewhere.
