Meteoro, Mini Maximo, Último Dragoncito vs Mercurio, Pequeño Violencia, Pierrothito: This was much better than previous week’s match, and I didn’t spend an hour looking around at Speed Racer pages on wikipedia this time. For a guy who appeared from nowhere and still hasn’t really been explained, Mercurio was perfectly fine as a mini rudo. I’d rather see him than Pequeno Universo 2000.
La Sombra, Máximo, Metro vs Dragón Rojo Jr., Felino, Negro Casas: a match. Some Sombra/Dragon Rojo setup for next week’s singles match.

6) Damián 666 & Hijo del Lizmark DQ Hijo de Pirata Morgan & Pirata Morgan [Copa Higher Power Tag, final]
Four team tag tournament had it’s share off issues. The Perros del Mal team beat the Oficials via foul. Piratas won clean to get to the finals and were 50/50 with the Perros in the main event. Just when they were getting to the finish, the Oficials ran in the main event and attacked the Perros for the DQ. Morgans were not happy, and the Perros talked of a trios title match (with Halloween as the third man) versus the Oficials. Pirata and son are tag champs here, so that’s probably also supposed to be wrapped up somewhere in here.
Maestros match was supposed to be super libre, but ended with Gran Apache faking a foul to draw a DQ. That seems not to work in that match. Angry Black Terry challenged the AAA-ers to a hair match. Angel & Apache easily accepted, because Terry will be at a disadvantage. Negro Navarro’s bald, so he can’t put up anything, and Black Terry will be in triangle with two rivals.
Super Kendo is debuting here; I presume it’s the new one introduced a couple months back, not the ex-Transformer. (I bet I’d know this already if I listened to DJ Spectro’s interview.) Sounded like that tecnico team did well. Eterno suffered some significant injury in the first fall of the match, but managed to finish. The recaps praise his professionalism.
Pollo maybe needs a new name if he’s not dressing like a chicken any more. He’s back to the Kevin look.
Black Terry Jr. has video of the opener: (fall 1, fall 2?) and of the Angel/Apache vs Terry Apache (part 1, part 2) Al Filo del Ring’s recap mentions he’ll have video of Apache/Angel vs Navarro/Terry later.

3) Ángel de Oro & Ángel de Plata b Drago & Exterminador
4) Gallo, Hijo del Fantasma, Valiente DQ Felino, Sangre Azteca, Volador Jr.
5) La Máscara b Rey Bucanero [MEX LH]
Bucanero took the first fall, Mascara the second. Bucanero went after Mascara’s mask in the the third fall. After some near falls, Bucanero yanked Mascara’s mask for a pin, but Mascara kicked out. Fantasma, Mascara’s second, tossed his mask back to him and Mascara took the match with a casita.
Cibernético, Escoria, Taboo vs El Ilegal, Hernandez, Zorro: Random hot tag stytle match. Taboo didn’t really add anything, didn’t really take anything away, was just part of the match. Nice good tecnico debut for the group that’s supposed to be rudos. It’s a show that really didn’t matter.
