5) Bestia Salvaje, Head Hunter I, Silver King, Veneno b Hijo de Pierroth, Pierroth, Pierroth II, Pierroth Jr. [cage]
I was trying to figure out what Silver King was doing here, becuase I thought he was a tecnico in IWRG. Turns out, he probably is, because both sides turned on him at the start of the match and beat him bloody. Corp side still won.

5) Hijo de Lizmark, Sagrado, Silver King b Black Warrior, Cerebro Negro, Okumura
Silver King IS a tecnico. Cerebro and Okumura, feuding otherwise, did not make for good tag them partners.

Accion highlights:

CMLL: Atomicos from Arena Mexico highlights. Ultimo got his mask completely ripped off by Hector, Tarzan and Rey did crazy corner dives, and Hector rolled up Ultimo when he went for a submission.

AAA: Charly Manson vs Zorro for the National Middleweight Championship – that’s not right – from Victoria, Tamaulipas. They break out the skeleton tech on a missed quebrada. Zorro gets the pin clean, which can’t be right. There’s a ref distraction which doesn’t seem to come into play right before the pin, so I’m plenty confused.

TNA taped three weeks of TV Monday night
04/27: no Team Mexico

In today’s New Japan action, Sangre Azteca took the direct loss in an atomicos match; Tiger Mask, Koji Kanemoto, el Samurai, Wataru Inou defeating Jushin Liger, Jado, Gedo and Sangre, with Samuari submitting Sangre. (Strong Style Spirit). Sangre’s flipping between the tecnico and heel sides thru this tour: tommorow, he’ll team with two guys he opposed (Kanemoto and Inoue) against the three people he teamed with.
