Cavernario grabbed Volador’s leg to fake a foul, ending the main event in two falls. This set up a singles match next week.
The main event seemed a bit better than usual. The rudos were aggressive in the opening quick fall, the tecnicos showed more speed than usual. This wasn’t the Arena Puebla walked thru nothing two fall match, this was more trying to make something out of limited time. It isn’t worthwhile on its own, but it was good enough to close the show and set up next week fine.
The semifinal seemed like the happy Tuesday match, except the tecnicos just didn’t go for a pin when they had a sure win, stood around for a bit, one person did a dive, and the two other people got beat easily. Not so satisfying. Flyer looks better working with Hechicero than with anyone else, the truest sign of Hechicero’s evil powers.
The lightning match progressed at a dawdling pace, going eight minutes more because Polvora was taking his time between moves rather than having a lot to do. They forced in a stage dive, a spot that’s becoming meaningless because it’s forced into matches like this for lack of better ideas. It was a solid though not interesting match.
The Arena Mexico version of the Costa Rica tag didn’t have the energy of the similar Arena Puebla one. I haven’t taken a long look at the Costa Rica Wrestling Embassy results in a while, but I suspect the rudo team doesn’t get a lot of chances to work as rudos, definitely not CMLL style, and that may be an obstacle to making this interesting. This was also a lesser group of tecnicos than Monday to be fair. More than moves and even rhythm, they’re missing a bit of personality. I know these guys by their names and their masks but not much else.
Nitro’s flipping DDT was so horrible that he needs to stick to the bad piledriver. That’s all my thoughts about the match.
