Dalis la Caribeña, Lady Afrodita, Luna Mágica vs La Seductora, Princesa Sugheit, Zeuxis : This match was a test of my resolve to recap all the DF matches available to watch after the fact. It’s not just that match was bad, it was that it was pretty obviously bad going in and it turned out to be exactly as bad as expected. I learned nothing, I was entertained very little, I only have some wacky gifs to show for it. I don’t know if it was Luna or Seductora’s fault for the two terrible bits in the last fall, but they are a dangerous combination.
Fuego, Guerrero Maya Jr., Triton vs Arkángel de la Muerte, Hooligan, Skándalo : Good match for a Tuareg match. They really didn’t do much while they were in control, but Hooligan is still willing to bump all over the place on the técnicos moves. Tecnicos really didn’t do anything out of the ordinary. It was fine for where it fits in.
Diamante, Diamante Azul, Hijo del Fantasma vs Namajague, Shigeo Okumura, Vangelis : a notch below the previous match. Still much better than the opener, but less interesting outside of Namajague’s antics. Fantasma’s new mask is interesting but he’s not right now.
Ángel de Oro, Máscara Dorada, Titán vs Averno, Euforia, Pólvora :a really fun random trios match, with the two sides going a lot farther than you usually get of that sort of thing. Rudo side worked really well together, maybe even faster than the técnicos seemed ready for at times, but the técnicos all looked sharp here. Titan vs Pólvora probably doesn’t mean a lot at the box office, but they’ve set it up right here.
