1) Alan Extreme & Vampiro Metálico b Dragon Fly & Tritón

Comando Negro fouled Black Terry for the DQ. Those two are feuding.

4) Monster Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown b Fresero Jr., Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Máscara Año 2000 Jr.
Fresero Jr. was bloodied, had a drink thrown in his face, and stumbled over to Psycho to be finished off.

CMLL Press Conference
Averno & La Mascara had a scrum at press conference, which included Jose Luis Feliciano getting knocked off the stage. Being a CMLL programmer is a rough job right now. Averno vowed to add his name to the (long) list of people who have unmasked members of the Alvarado family.
There was a few discussions about the Forjando un Idolo, with the final tonight. Rey Escorpion apologized to Ultimo Guerrero, so I guess they’re friends again. Blue Panther and Negro Casas continued to challenge each other. There was talk about the individual groups sticking together; this doesn’t make a lot of sense to me, because they were never really allies, always intra-group rivals. Forjando un Idolo would’ve been more interesting if we actually saw the mentors working with their four students and got the idea that this was a union outside the matches, but that was never shown.
Record has an interview with Angel de Oro hyping up the tournament and tonight’s final. He’s the clear favorite.
Anyway, the interesting bit is Negro, Panther, and UG were all there, but Shocker was not (though Delta & Guerrero Maya were there representing.) CMLL took away Shocker’s NWA LH title at this press conference, which gave him another reason to be here, but he was not. Seems suspicious. Fuego en el Ring has an interview with Shocker in Guadalajara, so he could’ve just been out of town at the wrong time. This press conference seemed to be rushed, only announced an hour before it happened.
Dorian Roldan congratulated CMLL for booking an apuesta match the day before TripleMania. Maybe a bit of sarcasm there.
LuchaWorld has this week’s Ras de Lona.
IWRG is holding a wrestler creation contest. Winner gimmick will debut at the Expo.
On Colt Cabana’s podcast, Mad Man Pondo says he’s coming to Mexico in June. That sounds like DTU, but I thought they were off until July.
- Konnan talks TripleMania.
- Amapola says she’s always beat the best, and Ayumi won’t be any different.

- Porra Fresa previews Monday’s Puebla card.
