Dragón Rojo Jr. & Último Guerrero vs Atlantis & Diamante Azul for the CMLL World Tag Team Championship 2: far close to a bad Ultimo Guerrero singles match than a good tag match. Diamante Azul & Atlantis didn’t do any teamwork or come across a team at all, but the tag champs didn’t either. It was four guys taking turns doing a singles match most of the way. If you’ve not watched a lot of UG the last few years, this was probably good, but it was unceasingly note for note with his usual song for regular listeners. Title change didn’t do a thing for the new champs, who were never close to winning until the former champs imploded with no warning. This was not a well told story.
Ángel de Oro, Mistico, Valiente vs Ephesto, Euforia, Mephisto 2 3: a fine debut, with only the on really bad botch and one equally phenomenal spot. Místico didn’t seem to connect on a charisma level with the crowd. Neither did the original Místico, but he wasn’t all caps MISTICO at that point. He (and the rudos) did enough to have an exciting match but didn’t quite sell it on being the start of something huge.
