Pesta Negra won the main event in straight falls. Invasors/Volador had the first fall won, but got DQed for excessive violence. Negro beat Charly with a casita in the second, despite Tirantes trying to block it. The Aguila/Bucanero challenge was dropped this week.
Not much of note the rest of the way. Okumura replaced Euforia, which probably had something to do with NJPW being here for this show. (They only sat in front of the crowd for the last three matches.) Strong Man beat Lyger to send him home a broken man. Strong Man is also done for the time being. Sombra was strechered out after his match after taking the deciding pin in his match.
Astro Boy had a bad night, failing on moves, repeating them, and failing again.
Ras de Lona talked to a lot of the teams in this weekend’s Arena Coliseo Tag Team Tournament. I think only Pegasso was MIA. Instead of highlgihts of their fighting, we saw Super Comando & Artillero salute in slow motion. Euforia & Nosferatu acknowledged this would not be their first shot, did not discuss why Nosferatu is not in los Cancerberos. I hope they lose in the first round. Show also had Tigre Hatorri saying (in English) that NJPW wrestlers were much better than CMLL. BOOOOOO.
- Cesar accuses AAA of inventing the Mistico rumor to sell tickets (which would’ve been a poor idea, seeing as they promoted that as much as the GHC title match) and says the Chessman/Nicho fight was made up to work the WON.

CMLL (FRI) 10/08 Arena Mexico
1) Ángel Azteca Jr., Ángel de Plata, Molotov vs Durango Kid, Escorpion, Nitro
2) Dark Angel, Luna Mágica, Marcela vs Estrellita, Princesa Blanca, Tiffany
3) Rush vs Terrible [lightning]

5) Felino, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas vs Charly Manson, Psicosis, Taichi
6) La Sombra, Máscara Dorada, Místico vs Atlantis, Dragón Rojo Jr., Último Guerrero
Main event should be good, but a skippable week in terms of progression.
Taichi returns. Estrellita debuts. Fourth match is a Brazo team. Charly/Negro meet again. Rush/Terrible is a such an easy joke that I made it last night.
