Angelico, Argenis, Fenix vs Dark Dragon, Polvo de Estrellas, Tito Santana: Angelico is still Angelico, just without Veneno to try and make his kicks look good. This was really more the Fenix and Dark Dragon show, and they were delivering.
Silver King & Último Gladiador vs Extreme Tiger & Jack Evans for the AAA World Tag Team Championship: They actually followed up on something! With a good match! Putting aside Jack already having one title that doesn’t go anywhere, this was a good follow up to Tiger winning the Rey de Reyes.
Dr. Wagner Jr. & El Mesías vs Damián 666 & LA Park: usual brawl with these guys. The Penas throwing drinks at Park was a bit random since that’s not going anywhere and I don’t think you really want to incite people into screwing with Park, but this was exactly as you’d expect it to be when you heard the match, right down to Damian taking the pinfall.

Aerostar & Laredo Kid vs Chris Stone & Súper Fly: We have this match, and I gif-ed the main event. I don’t know about me. Super Fly is actually a secretly strong guy who happens to do flips, and I hope he continues to show that side of himself off.
Cuervo, El Elegido, Ozz vs Alan Stone, Decnnis, Tigre Cota: I watch these shows about two weeks before I write this part. That doesn’t work out well! Anyway, Elegido’s here, and we’ll see him again in a month or so, I suppose. I like the idea of turmoil in the Milicia, I’m not sure you needed to make Konnan look dumb the first night after he elected Super Fly as leader especially since, given this is AAA, it’ll take at least until Fall for this to move forward. The usual AAA 3 act story is rush thru act 1, repeat act 2 for months, move onto act 3 only when everyone’s sick of this story.
Espíritu, Joe Lider, La Parka vs Charly Manson, Cibernético, Escoria: For the time they spent on Cibernetico cutting up Parka’s gear (which did not matter at all here), maybe they could’ve found some to show Escoria concerned about facing ex-teammate Espiritu before the match? Especially since they’ve not really made an issue in other matches.

I’ve got links to the TV versions of the two matches that have aired, but the PPVs are complete. WarriorX2000 has them up, though they may be in his PPV section.
Gran Apache, Mari Apache, Octagoncito, Pimpinela Escarlata vs Hijo de Tirantes, Mini Histeria, Sexy Star, Yuriko: Told the Apache/Tirantes story well, everyone else played their part. Tirantes took the loss but still made the eventually singles match meaningful.
Jack Evans, Joe Lider, La Parka, Nicho el Millionario vs Billy el Malo, Cibernético, Escoria, Nygma: Usually bit of slight of hand to allow Cibernetico to wrestle about 1 minute of a 19 minute match. Not sure if Parka is actually the guy in better shape in the feud (doubtful) or if Cibernetico’s just decided the best thing for this feud is for him to not have to sell much (likely). The whole bit with the fire was reckless but unsurprising.
Dr. Wagner Jr., Monster Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown vs Damián 666, el Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Halloween, Super Crazy: Again, the same hardcore match they’ve been doing nearly weekly, with a few ‘special’ spots for shock value. (Shocked the cameraman, who missed the table being on fire right in front of him.) If this is end for Perro Jr. for now, he goes out with a clean (as they go here) win over Dr. Wagner; they were clearly building both Wagner/Perro and Perros/Clowns (for the masks) for future matches, and at least one of those is now off.
Zorro vs Charly Manson for the AAA World Heavyweight Championship: Horrid. Back at Guerra de Titanes, I was confused as to why they didn’t let Dr. Wagner and Zorro have any semblance of a match without constant interference. They had much less interference (at least during most of the match) and let these two guys work. These two were just very bad at it. Charly tried, but there’s only so much Charly can do. Zorro – I have no idea what the actual deal with Zorro here was, but he performed a lot like a guy in no condition to perform. The Mr. Aguila/Rey Bucanero match had a crowd that came in only caring about Tirantes and the two guys weren’t good enough to get them when Tirantes left. This crowd was totally willing to get into Zorro & Charly, and that crowd was quiet by midway thru.
Electroshock vs Heavy Metal: announced as a bull terrier match, but it turned out to just be a three falls match. And a three falls match where the first two falls were relatively pointless, so who knows. I think they had a lot of ideas, but did not do the best job of putting them together in a coherent manner (Like: Pepe Casas gets bumped at the end – and then it changes absolutely nothing.) There was a story they were telling with the guitars, but sometimes it was a lethal match ender, and sometimes it was just a bit at the start of matches. This was okay, but didn’t feel like the best match in the series. Seemed like this should’ve built to Metal & Electroshock teaming up from here on out, but Metal might have driven himself out of that spot.
Extreme Tiger vs El Mesías, LA Park, Carlito for the Rey de Reyes Tournament: Piero is pretty patient in starting his countout. The big bump was not big by Mesias crowd brawling standards, but the brawl was good enough to make up for it, and they gave Carlito and Extreme Tiger enough time to get the crowd to start paying attention to them and not the fight they just saw. Tiger’s win was marginalized by Wagner walking out to the ring and essentially cutting his promo for him – TIger at least needed to say a few words, and it was a lot better when they just cut that off in the TV version. Still, if they wanted Tiger to come off as an AAA star, he should’ve beat an AAA star, rather than just a guy passing thru.
