double splash

Atomic Boy & Fabi Apache vs Fenix & Lolita and Halloween & Mari Apache and Alan Stone & Jennifer Blake for the AAA World Mixed Tag Team Championship: Really fun mixed tag with everything working and the Halloween & Mari Apache in the middle of it. Everyone got their moments to look cool, champions looked strong, and they’ve got a lot of directions they can go with this. Even the teams that were just more here to fill out the numbers – Lolita & Fenix and Jennifer & Alan – looked like actual teams and not people thrown together. Sexi Star as evil referee even played out semi-sensible. (The usual nonsense of people breaking up pins in elimination matches was still present, though.) Surprising Alan didn’t take a pin in what sure appears to be the last night in, but maybe he did more good for himself by catching a dive this time. This was as fun a match as AAA’s had in the last couple mega shows.

 

tapatia craziness

Dr. Wagner Jr., LA Park, Zorro vs Jeff Jarrett, Máscara Año 2000 Jr., Silver Kain: Best I was hoping for here was inoffensive and quick, and this was both of that. A lot shorter than these matches have been and a better pace for it. There were clear signs of editing here but that’s okay if it makes the match better; I didn’t need to know how Mascara got to the other side of the ring for Zorro’s dive if I meant I could avoid seeing Mascara in the ring. Both Mascara and Zorro really extraneous to most of this match, focusing mostly on Jarrett/Park but more on Wagner/Silver than Wagner/Mascara. Crowd did not seem very cooled off on Jeff Jarrett here, not reacting much to anything he did except the finish (and that was more because LA Park got cheated by a rudo, not for anything specifically Jeff.) Park kind of contributed to problem, because he also seemed not particularly interested in the feud anymore; Jarrett was just the opponent he happened to be facing that day.
