What happened: Nothing. There were some matches! People won, people lost, nothing meant anything. Nothing was much good either.
The main event was less than you’d expect. This was an off night for Volador, only notable for his continued new love of polo shirts. He seemed to be dealing with right knee pain between the last two falls, laying on the apron after he tagged out. It seemed to throw off the third fall a little bit, but it didn’t seem as if they were headed to anything big to start with. This was not a fraudulent main event, but it didn’t seem like much of one.
The semifinal fit the mold of most of the rest of the show, crowd pleasing matches which didn’t offer interesting offense. It was a fair effort if not exciting outside of Sobreano’s big move. Marco’s leap onto Kraneo was good too, and he brought back the oversell comedy spot he’s not done a lot of late. Bucanero caught Soberano’s dive well.
The tercera was not much. Do you want a long stretch of rudos attacking Blue Panther’s arm with no payoff? This match is for you. The técnicos played strongly to the crowd and get reactions, so this match probably sounded better in the arena than it did watching, where nothing much happened or mattered. Sagrado overselling was a highlight. Blue Panther Jr. is so much slower at doing the corner springboard spot than his brother that he really shouldn’t be trying it. Olímpico gave up his submission so fast that no one was sure if Fuego had submitted or not.
It’s always nice to see Virus in singles action, even if he and Astral didn’t totally mesh here and it was they were probably only matched up because they’re the shortest guys on the roster. Astral messing up a flip in the ring made him look silly. He was better on his dives. Astral doesn’t do much strength moves for a guy who’s all about how muscular here. Virus is fast when he needs to be and sells Astral’s holds better than Astral could. I have no idea how his finish worked but it’s Virus so it’s always credible. This turned out to be the best match of the night.
