Not totally sure on the hair loss there. Recap says “El Brazo”, but that doesn’t make sense. Both Super Brazo and Brazo de Oro were supposed to be in this match, and Rush replaced one of them. Brazo de Oro just lost his hair two weeks ago, so maybe it wouldn’t be him. Order of escape was Texano Jr., Taichi, Rush, Tony Rivera, and Maximo. Virus beat the Brazo out due to a distraction. Whoever it was, he was spotted hiding their not-actually-shaved hair under a cap leaving the building.
Felino yanked off Mistico’s mask in the third fall, allowing Volador to pin him for the win. Mistico wanted a singles match with Volador and Felino’s hair, which doesn’t help in the least.
SuperLuchas interviews Mictlan, who says he went on the CMLL tour of Europe and just decided to hang around Europe for five months. I don’t remember him actually be on that tour, and he hasn’t been around in more like 8 months. Anyway, Mictlan says he’ll be back in CMLL soon, maybe within a month. On the same topic, it’s been two months since Zumbido said he’d be starting in CMLL in two months.
Terrible says Disturbio remains him of a smaller version of Terrible and Texano, and maybe Disturbio could team up with them if he proves himself in this tournament. Somewhere, Vangelis is very concerned.

LuchaWorld has 60-51 of the 2009 Countdown, and points to video of the ex-AAA run-in in Puebla. Sure seems like everyone (especially the cameraman) was waiting for the surprise appearance. Maybe they spotted them far sooner than I could.
