Dragon Lee, Sagrado, Triton vs Disturbio, Vangelis, Virus: first fall was long mat work where at least half the guys aren’t really capable of being that interesting, and Sagrado doing something that reminds you why he’s Sagrado. The following falls rescued the match from that pit, but it still didn’t add up a lot. Disturbio was kept limited to taking moves and did a infe job with Triton’s tricky stuff.
Rey Bucanero, Terrible, Tiger vs Namajague, Shigeo Okumura, Yujiro: kind of a boring brawl until the third fall, where both teams played of each other as if this was match twenty in the series. Fiebre Amarillo looked like a team but didn’t act much like as a team. Maybe Tigre should’ve waited to start wearing his new scary mask until he was a rudo in a feud. Not as excited for Yujiro vs Terrible as I was for Yujiro vs Rush
Diamante Azul, Rush, Shocker vs Felino, Mr. Águila, Negro Casas: an okay match with a completely unsatisfying finish. Everyone acted like that was not meant to be the finish, so it might not have been, but it was still a less than adequate finish.
Diamante vs Euforia: an okay lightning, but nothing worth writing a lot about. Neither guy did a lot that stuck out. Diamante may want to reconsider his finish; it’s not that he’s killing other people when he lands it, it’s that he’s killing himself every time he misses. Credit for coming up with a new idea for the flip/knockdown bit.
Dragon Lee vs Titan: Starting the match by actually doing holds and counter holds for a few minutes was deeply amusing coming from these two, and the match really got food form there. These are two guys who common sense says require someone unlike each other to be a base for them, but actually worked off each other much better than expected. It wasn’t even as much neat moves as neat sequences of moves; this was all laid out and worked out very well, and executed just as well. This missed a little drama, but otherwise would’ve been fine as a final.
