Black Metal, Esfinge, Leo vs Espectrum, Hooligan, Nitro: In a world where CMLL was actually bringing Leo to Mexico City soon (instead of just something invented by the announcers to kill time), why would you air a match where Leo is so bad? CMLL airs hours and hours of TV, but they also have hours and hours more – why is picking the good stuff hard? Leo did look bad, but Nitro was also not in a mood to help him out at all. Everyone else was in shouting distance of alright but nothing memorable.

Atlantis, Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr. vs Namajague, Puma, Tiger: Very good, borderline great. A really fun trios match for something only two falls and note exceedingly long.) Under the circumstances, they actually built stronger to a Namajague/Maya singles match than the actual tag match, but both are good ideas. Atlantis was surprisingly good working against Tiger and Puma and Delta were good as well. There were definitely places that could’ve been cleaned up – not sure what the German suplex near the end was supposed to be – but overall a pretty fun time.
Mistico, Rush, Titán vs Averno, Mephisto, Volador Jr.: Good booking for next week, although Mephisto and Titan actually had more rough spots than every other combination. Still, Titan looked very strong in the end here; someone’s working hard to make him look good. The surprise sudden turnaround is done too much (because there’s three falls), but the dropkick a seated guy off the apron bit that set it up here in the second fall is also way over exposed and never looks that good. It doesn’t seem like an easier bump, and it’s not really a more impressive one at this point.
