Bucanero got DQed in the first match for pulling Dragon’s mask and fouling him, then won the second with his triple backbreaker. Dragon got Rey with the Dragon Cutter in the third, but the ref had been knocked down earlier. A Black Tiger (V’s mask, though never rule out Ohara) ran in and dropped Dragon with a piledriver. Bucanero crawled on top for the pin.

1) Aerostar, Pimpinela Escarlata, Súper Fly b Cuervo, Escoria, Ozz
2) Cibernético & Extreme Tiger b Chessman & Zorro
Show to promote the video game going on sale at midnight (or about 90 minutes earlier if Twitter is to believed.) These were actually matches in the parking lot of a Blockbuster of all things.
I’m getting the game in a couple hours, expect the random useless tweets to start then. I’ve stayed away from reviews, because I’d like to form my own opinion first, but it’s tough not to get impressions.
NJPW announced blocks for their Super J Tag Team Tournament. The block we care about is Block A:
- (dancing) Jushin Liger & El Samurai
- Prince Devitt & Ryusuke Taguchi
- Davey Richards & Rocky Romero
- Nosawa & Fujita
- Sombra & Mascara Dorada
Hey, remember when CMLL wanted Rocky Romero to be Sombra and/or Mascara Dorada? That just seems absurd today.
The winner of this tournament seems a strong bet to get a shot at IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Titles. Those just moved into the hands of DDT, so I’d guess a NJPW team would win. Still, Sombra & Dorada seem set up for better success here than Texano & Terrible in the other tag team tournament; I’d be very disappointed if Sombra/Dorada finished less than 3rd.
- There’s a exhibition of Santo memorabilia in Leon, including what’s said to be his original mask.
- X-LAW is hyping Sabu vs Nosawa for a 10/30 show at Arena Lopez Mateos.
- DJ Spectro looks back at Arena Anahuac
- The speed of CMLL: they just took down Black Warrior’s bio yesterday. Maybe they wanted to avoid spoilers for people watching on the Fight Network?
- Sagrado talks about his trip to Europe. This is the same international TV expo CMLL sent guys to last year.
- Silver King got his his picture taken with the security of defense and the president.
- Cronicas Y Leyendas looks back at Perro Aguayo vs Sangre Chicana.
- Box Y Lucha #2995 has all CMLL hype for Friday and nothing about the WWE on the cover.
