Lluvia, Marcela, Silueta vs Amapola, La Seductora, Tiffany:okay women’s match, which is great by CMLL’s standards. Silueta looked very good and Marcela and Amapola were their usual selfs. Lluvia seemed like a woman who hadn’t had a real match in many months, which is about right, and Tiffany didn’t seem like a great fit with what Silueta wanted to do.

Shinsuke Nakamura vs La Sombra [IWGP IC]:EXCELLENT. Everything you could’ve wanted out of this match, including a crowd totally invested into the match. This was the perfect match for them to have, even with the possible accidental injury at the end of the first fall. They set up big moves, they escaped them later, they did near finishes people bought into, and they just did some really cool things. Everything they did was a big battle. And the finish made me very happy, so there’s that too. I could’ve gone for a few more minutes; this was one time where it didn’t feel like they exhausted the near falls or dives.
