I regret not doing this recap earlier.
Main event was Mistico/Alex/Rey vs Averno/Warrio/Mephisto – and the Arena Mexico crowd was very angry at Mistico this day. When he first came in, 80% of the reaction was against him. It got better in part of the match, and I don’t think it was actually 80% of the crowd (but a lot of it making a lot of noise). The women and the kids still seemed to be with him, but they were drowned out by the hardcores – like the Arena Mexico version of a You Sold Out chant. It seemed to, and really had to be, all about him going to WWE.
Mistico, as he tends to do, slipped when the crowd turned against him, but he got it together by the end of the match. But the match
I wonder why they showed this match? It’s a repeat from the main show, and it’s not the usual slot – they went out of their way to show this one. It could just be that they realized Mistico hadn’t been on the show in months, promised he’d be on, and then didn’t have much of a choice. It didn’t make him look like the big hero he’s supposed to be.
The opener was the opener.
My reasons to drop GdR including no really good matches and nothing of meaning ever happening – they proved one of those wrong here.
