The chat is over.. My guess is I’ll be up to 1am CST at least to cover it, though I don’t expect anyone else will. I’ll remove the link after the chat goes down.
1) Dragon Rojo Jr., Misterioso II, Sangre Azteca b Ángel de Oro, Fuego, Stuka Jr.
2) Mephisto, Terrible, Texano Jr. b Hijo del Fantasma, Máscara Dorada, Valiente
Crowd is LOUDLY pro-rudo
Villanos appeared to honor Ray Mendoza
3)Blue Panther, Brazo de Plata, La Máscara DQ Negro Casas Okumura, Ray Mendoza Jr., Taichi
– no Negro Casas. Okumura replaced him. Straight fall win for the tecnicos. DQ for Taichi pulling Mascara’s mask.
4) Héctor Garza, Máximo, Mr. Niebla Negro Casas b Atlantis, Rey Bucanero, Último Guerrero
– Negro Casas is here! For Mr. Niebla, who is who knows where. Maximo wins by beating Rey.
5) Volador Jr. & Místico b Felino & La Sombra (Sombra pinned by Misitco, Felino pinned by Volador)
6) Sombra b Felino via casita [mask]
Felino is Jorge Luis Casas Ruiz, 45 (46 on Monday.)
Before the first match, the Legion hit the ring. Bits included
- the comedian from the press conference getting involved
- Hermandad and NOAH guys having issues
- Dorian and Konnan including their newest recruit Heavy Metal. Metal isn’t sure he wants to join, and has some issue with Zorro, so he’s got till the end of the night to decide.
3) Extreme Tiger, Jack Evans, Rocky Romero b Rió Bravo, Tigre Cota, Tito Santana – out of order! I dunno. Rocky beat Cota
1) Cinthia Moreno & Fabi Apache DQ Rain & Sexy Star – After Tirantes helped the rudas all match, Piero ran out to DQ them.
In Ring Bit: WagnerManiacos (Silver, Wagner, Electro – no UG or Pimpi) hit the ring. Wagner congratulates Electro on his win, asks for first shot. Electro says no and quits. They fight.
2) Cuervo, Escoria, Escoria b Aerostar, Laredo Kid, Súper Fly – Super Fly hit Aerostar early (by accident?) to give the Sect the edge. Super Fly wiped himself out on a dive late, needing medical attention. Cuervo got the pin on Laredo, maybe because they were being distracted by Super Fly being carted off.
Alex Koslov lost to clown Yurem. AAA got rid of goofballs for about a day. There was a foul and Pimpinela involved.
4) Taiji Ishimori & Takeshi Morishima b Joe Lider & Nicho el Millionario [AAA TAG] – NOAH guys are now considered part of the Legion, so now the Legion has these titles. Clean win. Konnan appears to explain this is payback for working for Roldan & AAA (by teaming with Pimpi.)
5) Cibernético, Monster Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown b Alex Koslov, Hernandez, Kenzo Suzuki, Zorro
Konnan, with a Psycho Clown mask on, attacked referee Pepe Casas. Just as his brother is losing his mask across town, Heavy Metal appears, attacking Kenzo to help the Clowns win. He’s anti-Legion.
6) El Mesías, La Parka Jr., Octagón b Dr. Wagner Jr., Pimpinela Escarlata, Silver King
As expected, Pimpi is the new WagnerManiaco. Neither the rudos nor Parka like this idea. (Octagon could care less, I guess.)
Mesias pins Silver King. Post match, Sabu runs in and helps the Legion beat down the tecnicos, while LA Park jumps La Parka Jr.
Things we’re watching
- @reformacancha on twitter is reporting on the show live, and updating every few minutes. It is great. I’m under the impression Reforma has good lucha coverage, but it’s behind a paywall (and I’m not sure I could even pay for it if I wanted, being out of the country and all.)
- EstadioW will have radio coverage at some point.
