Fuego vs Virus in a lightning match: A weird feeling match. Fuego dominated about 95% of the match, then Virus just got a hold and won. It was even more random by it being someone else’s hold; Virus hasn’t really used the campana since La Mascara started, he’d usually go to the motocicleta there.
Dark Angel, Estrellita, Marcela vs Hikaru, Lady Apache, Tsukasa: Good match. The Ice Ribbon girls have their rough edges (Hikaru’s kneelifts) but were fun and would be better than most of the regulars if they were around full time. Someone’s got to steal the escalator dropkick spot. The Lady Apache and Dark Angel stuff was good, good enough that they might even be able to get away with it as a semi-main on the anniversary show if they didn’t have a good idea (and they don’t seem to have one of those.) Estrellita was used in ways which did not bring the match down, good for her.
Diamante Azul, La Máscara, La Sombra vs Averno, Mephisto, Volador Jr.: Good match turning very good in the last fall. All six guys were really fired up for this; Azul was doing stuff we either haven’t ever seen or barely seen from him and fit well in this crew (better than Mascara at times.) Sombra seemed downplayed the first two falls but go to make up for it late. Just a hot match that didn’t mean anything, a CMLL special.
