What happened:

butt bump is new

Paco Alonso was honored before the semi-main.

Los Ingobernabales and NGD agreed to a trios title match next week.

Negro Casas fouled Soberano Jr. to conclude the semi-main.

Perverso tried using the ropes for leverage twice and got away with it the second time to beat King Jaguar. He and Jaguar agreed to a hair match.

Everyone in the opening match was wearing black as the main color. I would’ve fined everyone involved heavily. Astro at least had a green mask.

Thoughts:

The main event was the weakest of all the matches rated OK here. The two teams didn’t work well together and neither could figure out who was supposed to be the tecnicos in this rudo/rudo match up. (They both tried it.) Some of the problems seemed to be the usual Bestia related ones though not all of them. Perhaps they’ll do better next week but I don’t have strong hopes for this. Anyway, it’s Bestia del Ring from Puerto Rico why is he challenging for a Mexican title.

Halcon Suriano submission

The semi-main was quick. Mistico pulling out his diving headscissors on Euforia on this show was surprising, but he and Dragon Lee didn’t seem otherwise in it. Casas & Soberano continue to have some chemistry. I’m not sure I need to see the singles match again after it just happened in Arena Mexico, but I’m sure most people are digging into Sunday extra matches.

Perverso & King Jaguar worked hard for about seven minutes and the hair match next week should be as fine as this one. I’m so focused on people doing cool offense and these guys are not. This was a lot of simple stuff done well enough and without any great reason to care. I understand why the fans care – King Jaguar’s there forever – but I wish I found a reason to care myself.

The second match had some random big spots near the finish and a very sudden end. Halcon Suriano and Rey Apocalipsis competed for longest set up to a finishing move. Halcon Suriano has added a wheel kick to his repertoire. It needs work, but what else are you going to do in these matches. I think I’ve talked myself into these matches needing to be worse for people trying things that might not work in case they do, just leaning into the training aspect as long as no one’s taking them seriously.
