Warrior stripped off Electrico’s mask around the five minute mark for the DQ. CMLL was hyping up a feud between them before the match.
Invasors (though not Marcela) attacked the CMLL female champs before the match, but the hometown trio turned the tide. SO much so that they got DQed for excessive violence in the first fall. Tiffany beat Amapola to take the second fall, and challenged her to a title match next week. Marcela did try to explain why she’d be teaming with these women (to get a shot at the ruda champions and Sujei’s mask) but it was not her strongest.
Toscano fell badly on a dive, coming down on his left elbow. He was standing on the top rope, waiting to dive, when the ropes shook from underneath him and he fell to the floor. Toscano needed help to the back, which gave the rudo an easy advantage to take the semimain in straight falls.
Before the match, Olimpico danced with one of the edecanes. Cesar says Olimpico had “the grace of a polar bear.” Tecnicos took the first, but rudos rallied back for the second and third. Invasors immediately challenged for a trios title match. Tecnicos wasted no time accepting, but both teams were then jumped by Los Guerreros (more so the invasors). While that was going on, Tirantes (the referee for the main event, naturally) was slipping away from ringside. Negro Casas snuck up on Tirantes, fouled him and pulled him in a dragon sleeper, getting some revenge for last week.
CMLL is on 2pm today.
The CMLL Bodybuilding Contest is November 25th. (That’s Thanksgiving where I live. I think, say, Dragon Rojo and I may have totally different eating habits that day.)

Two title matches, and the 2nd and the 5th matches progress directly from last week. Hmm.
This would be Tiffany’s first world singles championship, if you over think it and don’t consider the Reina de Reinas as more than a trophy. When Tiffany was talking herself up on Ras de Lona, she mentioned she was a former Mexican National champion, started to say the name of another one, and quickly changed to “and other championships”
There may be all cage matches. Poster says this will be on TV. Sure.
