1) Freesbe & Trueno b Camorra & Zayco
2) Demus 3:16, Pequeño Universo 2000, Pequeño Warrior b Astral, Fantasy, Shockercito
Astral replaced Mascarita Dorada
3) Virus b Fuego, Metal Blanco, Tiger Kid, Dragon Lee, Sensei, Super Halcon Jr., Pegasso [cibernetico, CMLL SL, semifinal]
Teams were Tiger/Sensei/Halcon/Virus vs Pegasso/Blanco/Dragon Lee/Fuego. Eliminations were Pegasso (via Dragon Lee), Halcon (Dragon Lee), Sensei (Metal Blanco), Dragon Lee (Tiger Kid), Tiger Kid (Fuego), Metal Blanco (Virus). Final two were Fuego and Virus, with Virus putting on a “Motocicleta” (one legged campana has a name!) for the win. Virus vs Guerrero Maya for the title next week.
4) Sagrado, Sangre Azteca, Stuka Jr. b Shigeo Okumura, Vangelis, Yoshihashi
Tecnicos took 1/3. Sangre used the counter dropkick to beat Okumura. I didn’t know tecnicos could use that move.
5) Héctor Garza, Psicosis, Volador Jr. b Máximo, Rush, Super Porky
Rudos took 1/3, winning easily in the third.

Next week show is a Fan Appreciation show. There seemed to be a new fame ring announcer on this show.

Rodolfo Ruiz, Averno’s father and CMLL referee, says Averno is going to the WWE.

Shocker says he’s not sure if he’ll wrestle in Friday. He hasn’t actually been cleared to return, but is visiting the doctor this morning. (He did not sound that positive about it on Twitter.  Shocker says he does not mind CMLL stripping him of his the NWA LH title, saying the company has to give opportunity to younger people and hopes they have an outstanding match for the title.

On Sunday, Ultimo Guerrero went to Guatemala’s FMLL promotion and won their Champion Du Monde over Voltron. Ultimo Guerrero was originally said to be defend the Universal Title (which Lyger has) and then just the CMLL World Title. It sure looks like the actual belt he brought to the ring with the UWE Tag Team Championship. Just weird.

top six stories of the last two weeks

  1. Averno and La Mascara agreed to a mask match. Hours later, wored leaked out that this was Averno’s swansong in CMLL, as he’s heading to WWE to resume feuding with Mistico.
  2. LA Park & Mesias agreed to a mask vs hair match, the headline match for TripleMania. LA Park has said he’d retire if he loses his mask.
  3. Rudo AAA faction La Sociedad turned on Zorro. He’ll defend the AAA title against Jeff Jarrett at TripleMania. Other TripleMania matches include matches for a new trios title and a new singles title (RVD vs Wagner), more TNA involvement, and oddly no matches for Drago, La Parka or Perro Jr. yet. Octagon is expected to be inducted in the AAA Hall of Fame.
  4. Ultimo Guerrero has been added to the much maligned CMLL programing department. Meanwhile, there are rumors of many departure from the company.
  5. Super Crazy lost his hair on the Perro’s 3rd Anniversary show, the end of a cage match with the Psycho Circus.
  6. Angel de Oro won the final of the well received Forjando un Idolo tournament. Polvora was the runner up, but impressed in the semifinal. CMLL will keeping the Forjando un Idolo blocks together as a group for the moment.
