I was pretty high on last week's episode, so let's see if they can follow that up properly.
Up first, one of the best heel units in the game against a random assortment of flyers. PdN are elite together but it is worth noting they failed as a group more than once at their base responsibilities in this one. Regardless, there was still a worthwhile spectacle on display and it served as a strong way to open the show.
After, Argenis murdered Myzteziz Jr and then we had a trip down memory lane, looking at Valentine's Day segments from the past. Remember Gato Eveready?
Match two was chaos defined. Good, sure, but too disjointed to be truly recommendable. I did enjoy the finish, even if it led to a rare AAA disqualification.
Post-match, Psycho Circus reformed, which at least came off like a big deal. Faccion Ingobernable attacked the reunited trio, because in AAA nothing good ever lasts forever before a rudo comes and stomps on it.
This saw Penta and Fenix run-in for the save, and it set up the main event which was a bloody brawl, like a lot of AAA main events tend to be. The image of Fenix reaching out to the camera for help was a nice touch. For about ten minutes, Rush and crew brutalized the tecnicos. There was a minor comeback spot that set this back into a more standard trios match after, with everyone getting in their corners, for the most part. After a lot of dirty shit, including a fair share of dick kicking, Tirantes got rocked when he didn't count a three for the Ingobernable unit and eventually called for a DQ.
That's right, two disqualifications in a row, but in different ways.
The main event was actually pretty good, even if the finish came off flat, and was a better version overall of their typical main event style. That said, it's looking like Faccion matches are going to end in disqualifications for a while to avoid taking an clean L, and the format will need tweaking or it'll get old fast.
I really enjoyed this episode, but have a lot of small quips about it, too. Go ahead and hit play and decide for yourself but note it was indeed more good than bad.
