6) El Hijo Del Santo, Latin ♥, Marco Corleone b Blue Demon Jr., el Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Hijo del Lizmark

This reads like it was the Perro Aguayo show. It’s what you should suspect here, but it seemed that way more than usual.

In the fourth match, Nova & Oriental worked as rudos, and Groon suffered a possible broken ankle. Hijo de Rey picked up the win with a top rope Spanish fly over Nova. The rudos beat up Rey after the match (Groon being strechered out.) After they left, Misterio started to talk, only to be interrupted by the Perros. They welcomed Misterio to the promotion by putting him thru a table.

Supreme was the surprise wrestler in the hardcore match. Probably best that they kept it a surprise. It was worked elimination rules, though the eliminations weren’t so clear live. Supreme pinned X-Fly, and Charly and Halloween took each other out (and were ruled unable to continue) at some point. Perro Jr. made his second appearance by hitting Supreme with a chair, setting up Damian’s win.

Main event pushed Demon/Santo, Lizmark/Marco, and Perro/Latin. Rudos took the first, tecnicos the second. In the third, Latin took out Demon with a dive and Marco did the same with Lizmark. Perro pulled Santo’s mask and pinned him, but Tirantes was distracted. As Perro angrily tried to get his attention, Santo got the camel clutch. According to Estrellas del Ring, Perro refused to give up, but just fell unconscious and Tirantes stopped the match.

After the match, the Perros gave Latin Lover a ten second offer to join their group or get beat up. Latin got a chair, clonked Perro on the head with it, and Perro bled a ton.

No next show was advertised. Vivalalucha does not currently list the main event of this show as part of the PPV, but the rest of the card is on there.

In the undercard, Aguila over TJP sounds like the best match of the night (though the main event was definitely the most over match of the night.) Exotico Diva Salvaje replaced Estrellita, who really hasn’t been on an advertised Perros del Mal card since her debut six weeks ago (so hopefully they’ll stop advertising her already; women’s matches are probably not long for this promotion.) Turbo retained his lightweight title over Black Thunder.

Edit: forget Black Terry Jr.’s pictures.
