Delta vs Tiger in a lightning match: Actually felt this exposed these two guys more than anything. They can do spots, but they couldn’t build an entertaining match here, just the usual guys bit of taking turns doing high spots. Tiger, as currently constituted, is not a very interesting singles worker – at best, he’s developed as a guy who plays opposite to the strengths of the rest of TRT, but alone it makes him look limited. (I’m still solidly on Team Puma.)
Hijo del Fantasma, Shocker, Titán vs Mephisto, Niebla Roja, Pólvora: a going thru the motions match that didn’t do much for the crowd or the wrestlers. Fantasma coming up short on the Phantom Lariat was bound to happen eventually, still hilarious. Titan fit in fine.
Marco Corleone, Máximo, Rush vs Kráneo, Olímpico, Psicosis for the CMLL World Trios Championship: You can count on Psicosis to lose when it matters! A decent to good match that would’ve been raised by a crowd that was into it at all. The people there weren’t making a lot of noise all night, and this one deserved better during the last fall. Bufete del Amor has looked slightly better in other defenses but this was still fine.
