Notes from tonight’s AAA taping

  • Perros lost the main event by Perro Jr. run in, who then challenged Mesias for a title shot
  • Consejo beat Maniacos with help from Hombre de Negro and a foul on Silver King
  • La Parka fouled Octagon to cause his team to lose
  • Fuerza Aerea won, but were beat up by Consgrados after the fact

SuperLuchas #456 has Mil Mascaras in the WWE HOF and a report on the Todo x el Todo show. Inside, Daga tells the El Amigo de Siempre column that he had planned to bring in Davey Richards for this upcoming DDD show, but postponed it due to his hand injury. Which doesn’t quite make sense if he’s still on the card, but the show was pushed back from it’s original date and maybe Richards isn’t available on the new one.. They’re trying again for that match in June.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.

Croncias y Leyendas points to video of Kamikaze Misawa and Samurai Shiro in Mexico in 1984.

Familia de Tijuana were among those honoring Dinamico I.
