Tirantes was the scheduled referee for the main event, but Mistico complained to the commission. Commission agreed and sent Tirantes to the back, which greatly angered Tirantes. Tigre Hispano refereed the match. Psicosis won the first fall, but Mistico won falls two and three to take the match. Mistico asked for a mask match again, but Psicosis said they must have a title match before he’d consider it. The story is, Mistico doesn’t have a title (the IWRG and WWA ones are being treated as if they don’t exist), so this is a stalling tactic and maybe Mistico needs to win a title really soon.
Alebrije and the Mini Head Hunters were seen in the crowd, watching the main event.
Ultimo Guerrero ran thru the first two rounds of CMLL Universal Tournament Block A by dropping Averno & Mascara Dorada with Guerrero Specials. He had one more for Sombra in the semifinal, but Sombra shockingly kicked out, Ultimo Guerrero freaked out, and Sombra rolled him up to take this block. Most matches were around 4 minutes, though Texano’s matches were shorter and the semifinal went about 9. No sign of any breakup in the Ephesto/Texano match.
Rey Bucanero has a new parrot mascot. For real.
Second went straight falls when Loco Max fouled Angel de Oro.
Lucha Libre USA announced yesterday that Carlito Colon would part of their Las Vegas taping, next week.
Ras de Lona was all about interviewing the guys in yesterday’s Universal tournament, which is less useful if you already know who won. At least everyone had their belt (though Dorada only seemed to have 1.) They also had bits from the expo and from Sangre Azteca in Spain. There was also a segment with the surviving members of Peste Negra; Mr. Niebla’s name was mentioned for the first time in weeks, and I think they said Niebla is on vacation (but it was a comedy segment.) Rey was introduced as an ally of Pestea Negra, but not a member.
Cibernetico is in a new Burger King commerical.
CMLL.com has added the PWR Women’s Championship to it’s list of titles.
Cronicas Y Leyendas looks back at Solitario vs Erick Embry.
Dos de Tres has a feature on Pimpinela.

More Psicosis/Mistico. Do Alebrije & Cuije still have the AAA Mascot tag titles? Mistico/Monito vs Alebrije/Cuije!
It’s probably Lyger or Volador, though Garza, Aguila, or Negro Casas would not be unthinkable.
Ras de Lona announced 08/08’s main event as Mistico, Rayo, Texano, Terrible vs Volador, Atlantis, Rey Bucanero, Super Porky in a Relevos Increíbles match for Arena Mexico.
