- Third Fall: Nitro pins Star Jr with a power bomb
Match began with feel out grappling but soon became the rudos teaming up on the tecnicos until they won the first fall. Second round saw much of the same but Star Jr was able to catch Nitro in a victory roll. We were finally given some back and forth action highlighted by King Jaguar running wild. Albeit pretty sloppy. The numbers start to become too much though. The rudos team worked with better chemistry and were able to isolate everyone to gain an advantage.

Mr. Niebla hits a top rope senton on Caristico for the first fall. In the second fall Caristico hits a nice dive on Niebla but then Cavernario quickly pins Valiente with a slingshot splash. Now CMLL sometimes does 2/3 pins for one fall. It’s completely random. So Soberano hits a Canadian destroyer on Cavernario to pin him. Soberano and Negro Casas fight until Soberano hits a back flip dive. Niebla kicks Caristico in the groin and pins him when the ref wasn’t looking. Caristico post match wants to face Niebla.

So this is the Puebla version of their tag team tournament. I guess they felt like doing one for Puebla. Volador is wrestling with a sweater on to start to let you know what he thinks. After a ton of posturing he takes it off. Volador super kicks Terrible and Mephisto face busters Roja for the first fall. Typical rudo beat down in round two to start. Roja catches Mephisto with a sunset flip power bomb and Terrible hits a Styles clash on Volador to get those two falls out of the way. Volador hits a big dive early in the round. Niebla Roja follows up with his own on Mephisto. Final round is getting a bit sloppy. Guys are missing spots due to laziness. Volador hits a canadian destroyer. He kinda no sells and then hits his own then he collapses. Volador hit a back stabber on Terrible, and Mephisto pins Roja with a face buster off of the top to win.

The match starts with your standard grappling. Inquisidor submits Bengala with a leg lock and Yago pins Sonic with a lung blower. Inquisidor goes down for poetry in motion a little too far away so when Yago jumped off of him he slipped and fell into Bengala and I couldn’t help but laugh. Bengala submitted Inquisidor and Sonic pins Yago with a sunset flip. Yago submitted Sonic and then Bengala submitted him but then Inquisidor hit a code breaker and back stabber on him for the win.

Drone going with a slightly different look. He should keep it, he’s pretty jacked, no point in covering your whole body. They feel each other out but Drone hits knees to the corner on Universo and Fuego pins Tiger with a hurricanrana. Each tecnico gets the upper hand at the start of round two. Posing to the crowd after each successful sequence. There’s a string of pin falls that get broken up in a pattern like way. Tiger nearly Canadian destroyed Drone’s mask off. Fuego hits a neat dive on Universo and Tiger hits a nice spin dive on Star. Drone goes for his knees in the corner but Sagrado gets up and punches him in the balls. What a rudo.

- First Fall: Guerrero Maya rolls up Hechicero for the pin

Match starts with a little more posturing than grappling. Significant spot was Audaz hitting an asai corkscrew moonsault to the outside on Vangellys and then Maya rolling up Hechicero. Round 2 starts with everybody brawling. Maya’s mask basically gets ripped off and the ref has to pretend he doesn’t see it because that would end the match. Front row got a glimpse of him though. Hechicero hits a spinning back breaker on Blue Panther for the pin. Rudos doing some nice triple teaming. Maya hits a nice fast middle rope dive on Vangellys. Audaz does a wrap around the apron hurricanrana on Polvora. Back in the ring Vangellys catches Maya with a spear for the pin. Polvora also hits a top rope face buster on Audaz for another pin.

Just a typical second round, Kraneo splashes on Felino and Templario for the pin. In the third fall it’s just some back and forth stuff. Flyer hits an asai moonsault.

- First Fall: Rush pins Oro with a running drop kick

Rush attacks Oro during his entrance and then hits the running drop kick in the corner for the very quick pin. Rush continues to beat up Oro during the second round. Oro finally fights back and hits a middle rope dive three times in a row with the third sending Rush into the crowd. Angel sets Rush in the corner and super kicks him so hard Oro falls out of the ring. He pins him getting the useless falls out of the way. Rush pretends like he’s gonna get himself counted out but doesn’t. They trade big moves and close pin falls. Funny spot where Rush clearly goes for a sunset flip but Oro sells it like he’s taking a canadian destroyer. Oro hits Rush with a nice super kick then a Michinoku driver but Rush stops the ref from hitting 3. Oro complains, so Rush kicks him then hits the Rush driver for the win. Good match, rare to see Rush give a great effort especially on a Tuesday show. He’s so good when he cares.

Cometa and Black Panther hit dives off of the stage in between rounds. In the second round each wrestler was trading big spots and dives. Trying to get the crowd hyped up.

Winners: Angel de Oro, Niebla Roja, and Soberano
(Retirement Match) Metalico vs Virus
Nothing like a retirement match in the middle of a show. But realistically these are two low mid card guys at this point, so it’s not like it should main event. Like in Puebla when Police Man faced King Jaguar, their hair vs hair match didn’t even main event in Puebla. This was a one fall match for whatever reason they decided on that. Virus spent the early portion of the match beating up Metalico. Metalico moves out of the way to hit a middle rope dive and then an asai moonsault. Significant there because some years ago he hurt himself on the moonsault. Metalico spends more time on the offensive. There’s some close near falls and submissions as they keep fighting. The crowd really started to get into it midway. There was really good drama in this match. Both men feigning fatigue well, late in the match Metalico hits a dive through the middle rope but barely hit it and hit the ground hard. They trade some more close near falls until Virus gets him in the Virus stretch which is basically a stretch that stretches the whole body. Virus wins, and Metalico must retire. Sad. Future ref maybe? They let Metalico have a nice curtain call at the end of the match. Virus wins via Virus Stretch
(Hair vs Hair) Kaho Kobayashi vs Amapola
- First Fall: Amapola pins Kobayashi with a pinning combo.
- Second Fall: Kobayashi pins Amapola with a pinning combo
- Third Fall: Amapola pins Kobayashi with angels wings
They show a recap of the feud before starting the match. Very sad that one of these girls has to lose their hair. But hey that’s what makes a great apuesta match. They started the match out fighting each other until Amapola pinned her with a pinning combination. Back to my issue with 2/3 fall matches. For matches like this they get the first falls out fo the way quickly. So why even have them really? Second round and they’re still mainly brawling. Kaho hits a few big moves then gets Amapola in a pinning combo. Third fall and Amapola hits a big spear and applies a submission. Kobayashi desperately fights for the ropes. Good drama. Amapola hits a blue thunderbomb and Kobayashi had a great close kick out. Amapola does a flip dive through the middle rope. Not something you see her do very often. Kobayashi fights back and hits a splash of her own. Kobayashi hits a top rope hurricanrana and a missile drop kick to no avail. In the end Amapola catches Kobayashi with the angels wings for the win. Kobayashi shaves her poor nice hair. Sad! She looks like a monk. But she is still cute. And that’s the ultimate sign of beauty, being cute without hair.

Third round starts out with a lot of big move trading. Valiente hit a high velocity middle dive and then the pace started to slow a bit. Later as the match went on Gran Guerrero hit a dive and Valiente hit another one through the middle rope. Los Guerrero’s double pressed Azul off of the top and then threw Valiente on him.

Now Dinamitas are trying to get Ultimo.

This match wasn’t even remotely advertised. Well a cookie sheet gets introduced really quickly by Tirantes. After getting beat on some Maximo hits a dive through the middle rope. Nothing really happens for a few minutes. This is a really slow paced match. Mamba hits a power bomb on Keyra, reversing her hurricanrana. Tirantes tries to pretend he was fouled. Ref ain’t having it. Tirantes argues with the ref, Maximo kisses him and then rolls him up for the win. Maximo pins Tirantes with a roll up
