Main event was a bloody mask ripping battle, certain to set up a rematch. Seems like they’re changed plans from the feud with the Gemelos Fantasma.
Mascara/Toxico won in straight falls, first when the Pierroth screwed up, second when the Pierroths foul their opponents. Hijo de Pierroth apparently beat Mascara Ano 2000 Jr. for the Rey dey Ring title back on 03/28, and they’re still feuding for it.
AAA has a note mentioning the passing of Elda Shelia Barrada Castillo. She’s Estrellita’s mother, and also the daughter of long time Mexico City commissioner Rafael Barradas Osorio.
AAA put up a truck load of upcoming spot shows lineups last night. Alerbije, Brazo, Histeria, and Psicosis are all still listed as on them. There’s also some matches which are listed as Parka and Alebrije (w/Cuije) vs the Psycho Circus, with no mention explanation of why there’d be 2 (.5) vs 3 matches. My guess is someone still has Abismo Negro listed in their scheduling book, and whomever is putting this up on the website thought enough to take his name out but not enough to add Luchador Sopresa. There’s also a card for DF, it does not include Konnan
BTW – today’s rumored AAA departure: Chris Stone. (He’s also booked this week.) Hmmm, I’ll guess Gronda II is tomorrow’s.
Meanwhile, the Gladiatores prove how great they are – they went to El Fantasma and asked why he suspended Konnan but not Jack. Also, Pirata Morgan talks about going independent.
Ayako Hamada is headed to TNA.
Box Y Lucha looks back at Verdugo, Rolando Vera and El Solitario.
WrestlingObserver has their AAA Recap. How bad must’ve Joaquin Roldan’s punch been that they used a camera shot from across the arena, all the way zoomed out, to show it?
