NotiMex summaries how we got here. Ovaciones compares this to Angel Blanco vs Solitario. In ESTO, Perro Jr. says this match could be toughest of his career and Mistico is fine witht he match he got, even though it’s not the match he was originally promised.
I’m not really torn about missing live coverage of this show. There’s not much drama here
– Perro is going to beat Hector. There surely will be a fake finish of Hector nearly winning, but no one should expect him to win here.
– One, or both, of the semimain teams will fall apart before the finish. I’m betting on Mistico’s team.
– none of the other matches matter.
Blue Panther vs Villano V will probably continue, though since neither guy has a title and neither guy seems close to losing their mask, I’m not sure where it can actually go to. I think this is Grey Shadow’s last big chance to establish himself as a notable star. He can hang around in the middle forever, but he’s not going to have a much better chance to change his rep before everyone makes up their minds. Minis and Women’s match could set up title feuds, or could just be 7 minute sprints to leave more PPV time for other things.
CMLL’s preview notes Mistico is no stranger to teaming with either Ultimo or Atlantis. There’s not a lot of new ground on this show. I think it’ll still do well, because the names in the main events are important enough to draw, but it’s not very interesting from afar. Rey de Reyes ended up being just as predictable, but there was more going on.
Ovaciones has a brief article on Bestia Salvaje’s passing. SuperLuchas looks back at his hair win over Huracan Sevilla in 1992, which seemed to be as much about the ref as the wrestlers.
