Euforia & Gran Guerrero kept the tag team titles.
Guerrero Maya tries and fails to kick out of Okumura’s cutter at the end of the match. It seems like a planned bit but everyone’s so used to the referees blowing the finishes that they default to thinking it happened again for a moment.
Los Guerreros looked like the best team in CMLL in the competition to decide the best team in CMLL. Good thing they won! The Chavez did their usual stuff in but didn’t step it up as much as the rudos, who apparently had a bunch of cool moves they were saving for a decent opponent. This one lacked a dramatic final stage, but it has a cool inventive finish. Hope CMLL keeps feeding more challenges to Euforia & Gran Guerrero to see what else they break out.
There was a point where Atlantis had to be beaten up near the ropes because he needed something to hold onto and couldn’t afford to fall down. They work over his leg every match to explain his limp. This is crazy and needs to come to end. I don’t think Atlantis should be in the ring at all at this point, but certainly not on a Tuesday semi-main where he’s not even teaming with his son. I don’t know what it’s going to take for someone to say this is enough, and I hope it’s more time than the situation getting worse. If you’re going to watch the semi-main at all, skip ahead to the third fall where they give Flyer and Audaz sometime to do anything instead of building around a Mephisto/Atlantis feud.
The Maya trios fell into the usual professional midcard range. Guerrero Maya & Fuego need something to do break them out of being third match robots but they were fine here. The crowd was into Dulce again and he seems fresher given who else was teaming with. Vangellys worked with him surprising well. Universo’s double knee finish where both knees go on opposite does of the head has to go.
Blue Panther Jr. was very dedicated to producing a legdrop that didn’t look effective and achieved that goal. Not much else. He probably needs someone who’s more willing to bump than Misterioso is, though Misterioso did take the big spear well. The Panther pescado tornillo looked good too, but neither of these guys are impressive singles wrestlers.
