Casas submitted Dorada to take the first fall of the main event, Dorada and Sombra got castias on the Casas brothers to win the second. In the third, Sombra pulled Mistico’s mask and Volador rolled him up. After the match, Felino and Mistico decided to join forces and challenge Volador & Sombra to a tag team mask match. Volador & Sombra (sort of cowardly) walked away without answering.
My best guess is this turns into a tag team title match. Which would be good, but not the stakes we’ve been led to expect.
UG got Mendoza with a powerbomb to take the semimain. Taichi still has not taken a fall.
Monito was caught in the middle of the fourth match. He started the match with Shocker, much to the disappointemnt of Maximo & Niebla. Tecnicos took the first, rudos took the second. After that fall, Dragon Rojo wanted revenge on Monito for something that happened earlier, but Niebla & Maximo stopped him. Shocker kicked at Dragon Rojo, but missed and hit Monito! Shocker apologized to Monito, but Monito was angry and ditched him. Mr. Niebla tried to get Monito on his side, but Monito walked off on him as well. Hmmmm. Mascara and Toscano won the fall and the match for the tencicos.
Mephisto got Fantasma in 9:44 with a Tiger Driver ’91. Fantasma was sterchered out. Artillero ripped off Molotov’s mask in the opener.
AAA has switched the foreign women in the trios to Christina Von Eerie, and pulled the article hyping Lacey Von Erich (though you can still see her name on a Rey de Reyes page, until they read this.) Cesar chronicles the whole weirdness about the Rey de Reyes situation. I always lean towards it these things being more bad coordination than works of deception. This isn’t the first time where it’s seemed like the person (people?) running the website have no idea are working with limited or no information based off what other parts of the company are doing. Anyway, SuperLuchas has all you need to know about Von Eerie and I think it’s a better match with her in it.
The headline of this article is “Lizmark says lucha libre is now a fraud“, but it’s more the standard complaint about kids these days not having a good amateur wrestling base before they start doing the wacky moves, and he’s going to start training people right.
Bam Bam tells Fuego en el Ring that Mini Violencia has not earned a championship match yet.
Relampago talks to his hometown paper about making it to AAA. Apache and Mexicano are training him now.
SuperLuchas has a video of Konami vs Drastik Boy. I’m glad we’ve agreed on a spelling for Drastik!
DJ Spectro writes about Brazos vs Aquamen for the masks, in 1980.
