What happened: Mephisto continued his new success by defeating Mascara Dorada for the CMLL Welterweight Championship. (Mephisto is now the favorite to put up his mask at the Anniversary show, though it’s still a long way away and it’s not totally clear who he’d face.)
What was good: The main event, really. Dorada/Mephisto was great. The women’s match was the only thing watchable from the undercard.
Where can I watch it:It’s on CMLL’s YouTube channel. Note the stream went out during the show, and the end of the third match wasn’t broadcasted and doesn’t appear on the VOD (unless they edit it later.)Read More
What happened: Marco fouled Rush and challenged him to a hair match. Rush said no. La Mascara defeated Angel de Oro to win the CMLL Light Heavyweight title, with some help from Rush. Mascara & Dragon Lee had issues after the match.
What was good: Pretty much everything. The third and fifth matches were the best matches of the night.

What You Need To Know
Esfinge & Volador won a fun Gran Alternativa block, and will face Raijin and Rey Escorpion in the tournament final next week. There’s no match you need to watch and it may lose it a bit knowing the outcomes, but it was a fun Tuesday night viewing and better than last week.
Mephisto pinned Volador once more before their title match on Sunday.
Yago & Golden Magic looked good in their first streaming appearance, and Warrior Steel is at least interesting.
All the Boricuas are acting as if the storyline where Pierroth quit the group and said Misterioso & Sagrado weren’t any good never happened.

What happened: Fujin & Rey Escorpión advanced to the final of the Gran Alternativa tournament. Skandalo and Fuego appeared to be feuding, though they didn’t get involved in the finish.
What was good: The Gran Alternativa tournament was generally good, though the format meant no stand out matches. Rocky Casas (especially) & Magia Blanca looked green, but the rest of the action went pretty well. Triton didn’t fit in the criteria but looked good in all of his matches. The tercera match was the best match, and it was an overall fun show.
What happened: Hijos del Infierno successfully defended the trios titles over Divinos Laguneros. Puma fouled Stigma to end the third match in straight falls. Rey Cometa was stretchered out after a piledriver.
What was good: Really just the main event, though there were some semimain moments that were good.
What happened:Zeuxis suffered a foot injury in the lightning match. It looked serious, though Silueta went on with a planned title challenge for next week. Hijos del Infierno cheated to beat the Divinos Laguneros, which may set up a rematch next week.
Caristico made his return to Tuesday shows. Raijin made his streaming debut. Both looked fine.
What was good:Nothing really. I liked the main event the best but even that was a not worth going out of your of watching. There were parts of matches that were good but nothing came together and some stuff fell apart.
