first appearance of Durango Kid in quite some time. Demus (who might have been supposed to wrestle Mascarita) Dorada on this show helped Ohara win, so they split the prizes. Hooray friendship!

Tajiri beat the rudo for the night Sangre Azteca
7) Último DragónBlack Tiger V [mask]
Demus & Ohara helped out Black Tiger, so Brazo de Oro & Brazo de Platino helped Ultimo Dragon. Tiger pinned Dragon for the win in the third fall, but Dragon happened to have a foot on the rope and the comisssioner ordered a restart. Referee (Maya) got taken out, a second referee appeared, Black Tiger V looked like he was going to win again, but Ultimo Dragon spit red mist for the win. Black Tiger V is (for this night) Tatsujito Takaiama Tatsuhito Takaiwa, who had previously lost this mask to Tiger Mask V in Japan.

2011 AAA TV Chart
Projected Air Date (#991)
Mexico: 05/29
US: 06/12

That’s a unique main event. I have no idea who’s working with who, except Nicho is landing on his head at some point. Zorro’s ostentatiously out with an injury, but there he is in the main event. Interesting.

He’s probably getting involved in the semimain, since he’s done that the last couple of times with LA Park and Mesias. Halloween is oddly the only Perro on this show (LA Park is more a one man gang.) Odd to see Decnnis in the semimain, but maybe Super Fly decided he needed to personally lead his troops to a win.

First TV appearance in six months for Cinthia.
