Bengala & Höruz vs Camorra & Inquisidor: a sleepy kind of boring opening match. Höruz did not look bad, but didn’t seem near as interesting as last time out. Inquisidor seems to have a hard time remembering spots.

Leono, Molotov, Tigre Blanco vs Bobby Zavala, Disturbio, Hijo del Signo: okay as set up to this feud, and Blanco and Leono looked good against these rudos. Crowd really could not care about it at all, but they rarely care about regular division guys booked at this level (and for good reason.) There’s a chance this might turn out well, but there’s much less of a chance it’s going to get over at all.

Dalis la Caribeña, Dark Angel, Luna Mágica vs Princesa Blanca, Princesa Sugheit, Tiffany: This match got the longest segment on the show. I have no idea how any of these decisions are made but this one didn’t seem to be based on any criteria I would’ve gone with. Dark Angel looked good, and also looked good wrestling. Rudas at least contributed ideas and teamwork, but no, I didn’t want any of this. Right time won at least.

La Máscara, Marco Corleone, Valiente vs Tama Tonga, Terrible, Tiger: a very usual trios match where you’d have no idea during the match they were setting up a tag team title match for next week. The finish looked a little different, but the rest of the match had little to do with anything that Mascara’s post match challenge comes out of nowhere. No idea how good the title match will be from this, but this match was just a match.

Niebla Roja & Último Guerrero vs Pólvora & Rey Escorpión: another good build up match to this feud, though it’s weird the técnicos had someone run in to out number the rudos. I know they’re both supposed to be the rudos, but the Guerreros were definitely técnicos here.
