2) Comando Negro & Hijo del Signo b Daga & Eragon
3) Último Gladiador CO Hijo de Máscara Año 2000
4) Avisman, El Hijo del Diablo, Gringo Loco b Black Terry, Cerebro Negro, Dr. Cerebro [EdM Trios]
5) Hijo del Cien Caras, Máscara Año 2000, Máscara Año 2000 Jr. DQ Alex Koslov, Chessman, Cuervo
Missing much of the specifics, but I assume there was some chicanery in the main event. Update: Alex Koslov got caught with a Dinamitas mask for the DQ. Rudos had tossed it to him before it.
Ultimo Gladiador got the singles win for AAA via countout, according to AAA, then was attacked by the Dinamitas.
Gladiatores’ Twitter says the Gringos retained over Terrible Cerebros, so I presume that was a title match. Avisman was hurt during the match.
Opener needs to rematch for rights to use the Black surname.
In addition to the news from the press conference, CMLL.com mentions NJPW’s Yoshihashi will come to Mexico after the Best of the Super Juniors tournament. Not sure for how long, though he’s the usual level (low on the totem pole) for a long stay. Also, I love all the picture showing the chain fence wall between the CMLL guys in the Invasors.
UPDATE: CMLL.com has removed the portion about Yoshihashi from it’s news page. Huh.
I have no confirmation, but I believe CMLL still is running the Infierno en el Ring sometime in June. The 6/6 Sin Salida card is really just a fan appreciation card pumped up a bit to run against TripleMania; nothing they’re doing on that card precludes them from running a bigger show on Friday. CMLL did announce they’d be running Infierno en el Ring sometime in June, and I don’t think it’s just a matter of changing the names. CMLL will run occasional large shows on Sundays, but Friday is still the biggest day of the week. They may want until the end of the month, but they’re still doing their cage match before the month is out.
Rob has thoughts on this lineup, including CMLL & Invasors teaming up already.
Psicosis III, the one who’s never on TV, declared he is the authentic Psicosis than the one who’s in CMLL right now. Psicosis III comes to this conclusion by noting Nicho endorsed him as the actual Psicosis. By that logic, doesn’t that mean La Parka Jr. is most definitely not the real La Parka?
Milenio has an article about a Tampico celebration yesterday of Dia de Luchador. Yesterday was Dia de Luchador?
Chessman explains “I have no luck, luck is for losers”, while vowing to win AAA World Mega title before the end of the year. Also in the article, with quotes from the TripleMania conference, Mini Black Abyss says he’s recovering from injury (maybe that’s why the minis were off TV?)
The Wagner/Octagon combo mask is actually really cool.
LLF has canceled their show tonight, saying the city has asked all wrestling shows to take a week off after the gun shots fired at Arena Coliseo Monterrey this Tuesday. No word if the show there will be canceled this Sunday or Tuesday, or if any other shows are actually being canceled.
DJ Spectro tries to figure out which wrestler has lost the mask the most times, based on results we do know.
