Villanos took the first, Brazos took the second, both teams bleed, and Villano III snuck in a foul on Oro for the win. Talk of a cage match followed.

I’ll do X-Project full results tomorrow, after the blogs have had a chance to put up their reports. Stuff gleemed from live Twitter reports

  • the shows ran about 7h30m, including a 45 minute break between the shows. The DDD show looks to have wrapped just about when the Valerie Office show was supposed to start, so they were running late all night.
  • The DDD show looks half full, while the late show seems about a sell out.
  • Davey Richards did not wrestle, said due to a concussion suffered in Tennessee. He was not at the show. DDD ran a Daga vs Joe Lider vs Super Crazy three way for the X-LAW junior heavyweight championship instead, which Daga won.
  • LuFisto also won the LuchaPOP title.
  • The Sami Callihan/Samurai del Sol vs Traumas match main evented the DDD show and was said to be great. Same thing for the trios match with the Samurai, Ion, Dragon vs Fenix, Sugi and Freelance.
  • Most of IWL’s ATM faction (except for ATM and Fantasma de la Quebrada, the leaders) “jumped” to this group as “MTA”. They had new t-shirts and won a battle royal.
  • Sami Callihan was the mystery man in the thee way with Demon and Mesias, with the Traumas causing Mesias to beat Sami.
  • Parkas beat the ex-ECW crew in the main event.
