This was an improvement on the match from the week before thanks to the injection of Ultimo Guerrero and Rey Bucanero. With Shocker turning tecnico and Wagner off the boil, GdI have risen to the fore as the best heel act in CMLL. I was always dismissive of GdI in the past, and probably a bit of a jerk, but watching them in context, I appreciate their work a lot more than I did in the past. They worked more of a modern, action driven style, but beneath the sheen they were excellent rudo technicians. I love watching Atlantis wrestle these guys. He pairs off with Ultimo at the beginning and instantly I'm thinking this is a match-up I want to see more of (outside of the mask match, that is.) I know Atlantis wrestled some cool singles matches with Bucanero. Props to Halloween and Damian as well. They're not the greatest workers in the world, but they worked the GdI style here and did a fine job of it. This match set up a title bout between GdI and Familia de Tijuana after Halloween and Damian ate topes instead of the tecnicos. Seems short notice, but I'm glad to see CMLL trying something a bit different.
