Metálico, Pegasso, Starman vs Arkángel de la Muerte, Nosferatu, Skándalo : if you’re someone who could sit around and watch Starman and Arkangel wrestle all day, I hope you have all day free. To me, this was a very long version of a very basic and not particularly interesting segunda. My highlight was the announcers calling two different moves “Skandalo Driver” in the same match, but it was a long match.
Marco Corleone, Máximo, Rush vs Dragón Rojo Jr., Rey Escorpión, Último Guerrero for the CMLL World Trios Championship : Dragon Rojo & Rey Escorpion ignoring Ultimo Guerrero was very well done, and the finish itself was both a nice twist on the usual Marco & UG ending (this time, it’s Marco who rolls thru the big plancha) and also interestingly puts Rey Escorpion completely in the right. Still, this match felt like there were a couple minutes of near falls missing and the actual ending was really abrupt. There were no near falls, it was just done. This was good progression of the Guerreros storyline but there are better Bufete del Amor title defenses.
