Sold show. Food company, so it was probably one of those where you got at ticket with a few purchases. Bucanero & UG won over Atlantis & Rayo de Jalisco, who had issues getting along.
Mistico & Volador got along, but the article assures us they’re still feuding.
Blanca replaced Dark Angel, who told SuperLuchas she’d be out for a while with an arm injury.

5) Rayo de Jalisco Jr., Shocker, Volador Jr. b Atlantis, Jushin Liger, Rey Bucanero
All the tecnicos pinned all the rudos, including Rayo pinning Atlantis. Somehow, this sets up Atlantis challenging Rayo for the WWA Heavyweight Championship next week.
That title match will probably end in controversy. Whoever’s booking here hates clean finishes in big matches. Ebola had the title won in straight falls, but got disqualified for excessive violence. Gallo, hurt knee and all, rallied to win the third fall and keep the title.
Al Filo del Ring has video of Saturday’s Arena Lopez Mateos main event: Ultimo Guerrero, Dragon Rojo Jr., and Negro Casas vs Mistico, Sombra and La Mascara.
The Invader-centric show at Arena Azteca Budokan had Charly Manson fouling Hijo de Dr. Wagner Jr. in the main event. Pequeno Halloween, not listed on the original card, worked in the undercard. Hope he gets a shot to come back as an Invader.
Coliseo Coacalco had Super Z & Josef Von Schmidt, the two German guys who’ve been showing up on indy cards the last month or so, lose to Magnifico & Tony Rivera to set up a title match next week.
El Pancracio has an interview about el Mimo about winning a mask at the Expo, with Fantasma de la Opera and Oro II about their feud, and an profile of Acapulco wrestler Ramtha.
There’s a teaser for a Blue Demon motion comic on YouTube.

Segunda Caida has three more Black Terry matches.
