SHOW THOUGHTS: Thought the main event was a really solid brawl with the focus being on Tony Salazar and Herodes feud. Both bled during the match and Salazar took quite the beatdown throughout the match. The first match on the show was building up a Jerry Estrada vs. Ultraman match. I think the first match would probably be the one geared to fans who like the faster paced lucha libre matches while the second and third match were more of a brawling style took more of the focus of those matches.
