CMLL vs Outsiders
This isn’t a match with huge story implications outside of continuing the CMLL vs the World trend from the Gran Prix but it is one to watch for those looking for awesome wrestling. Titan and Soberano are both fantastic and both Dorado and Del Dol will be up for the occasion.
CMLL vs New Japan
Rocky Romero has had a surprising career revival as a rudo in CMLL. He has taken to terrorising the good guys with all the joys of a guy with his technical background. This match sees two of his feuds converge as Mascara Dorada 2.0 sides with Mistico against Romero and NJPW. Romero and Dorada have battled it out recently, but Mistico may be next in his crosshairs.
Mistico is the most popular wrestler in CMLL so he is a perfect opponent for a foreign heel and the two could be building to a big match down the line.
Mask vs Mask
The main event is a pretty big match between two stars still at or near the peak of their powers. Earlier this year Templario defeated Rojo Jr. to win the CMLL World Middleweight Championship and successfully retained the title in a rematch in July. The two have been trading wins in tags ever since but the momentum is definitely with Templario heading into this event.
There are never any guarantees in wrestling but it is likely we see Rojo lose his mask come the end of the show.
