Aereo, Astral, Shockercito vs Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Olímpico, Pequeño Warrior: Didn’t do anything for me. These matches are so basic with a complete trademark spots in, they really lack excitement. Eléctrico being out for a few months is going to hurt; he’s progressed a lot farther than Astral and the newer guys.
Pegasso, Rey Cometa, Triton vs Arkángel de la Muerte, Nosferatu, Puma King: Puma and Cometa are locked in working with each other right now and it’s a sight to see. Some matchups get repetitive as they get closer to the big match, but these two are getting even better. I could not be more excited for that match. This really didn’t have much of the other four guys, but they were fine even when they were dragging a broken knee along.
Blue Panther, Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr. vs Black Warrior, Namajague, Shigeo Okumura: Another one of the Blue Panther performances with good parts and moments where he seemed unaccountable lost. Other técnicos didn’t seem as focused on as regularly on Tuesdays. They’re sure matching them up with Namajague & Okumura a lot lately for no particular feud.
Atlantis, Diamante, Titán vs Mr. Niebla, Niebla Roja, Pólvora: Titan & Pólvora actually felt secondary to Atlantis & Mr. Niebla before they did the finish. This didn’t feel as strong as last week’s main event, though everyone was okay. I keep thinking they’re going to stop calling this guy Diamante, and changing his music from a song about Diamante might be the first step. (Not sure you want to change it to Silver King’s music though.)
