Ángel de Oro, Máscara Dorada, Valiente vs Kráneo, Morphosis, Psicosis: More than I expected out of this match. The beatdown segment was a bit more dramatic with the técnicos nearly turning the tide a few times only to be stopped before Valiente finally found a way to counter the Mije splash. Valiente vs Kraneo is a fun match I didn’t know I wanted to see, but that really needs to happen as a lightning match or something. Finish felt like an upset (Morphosis doesn’t even have a winning move!) but the Invasors do need to win someday.
Dragón Rojo Jr. vs Titán for the CMLL World Middleweight Championship : An okay title match. It was a bit of a struggle, because the crowd didn’t at all care for the opening mat works segment (nor could they be blamed for that) and they had to work to get the crowd back into it. Dragon Rojo had his bad moments (that clothesline spot!) but was competent. The match never really dragged after the first fall, and they did the CMLL formula singles match without making it feel formula, but it didn’t really get that exciting by the end.
