The article also mentions Hijo del Signo is among those challenging for freshly vacated Distrio Federal weight division titles. This week’s SuperLuchas explained it a bit, though it was a small part off a controversy over who got approved to run lucha shows as Mexico City Fair: previous promoter claims commissioner Fantasma pushed him out for the the new promoter (OCESA, fronted by El Signo), Fantasma says he’d never do such a thing. The fair is having lucha matches every hour, using a lot of CMLL talent, and the Fantamsa interview mentioned they’d be involved in the title matches, but didn’t really explain. This article says their was a tournament last weekend, setting up these finals:
04/15: Demus vs Astral [DF LIGHT]
04/??: Sensei vs Leono [DF WELTER] – maybe this is also the 15th?
The middleweight tournament will take place this Saturday, the light heavyweight tournament will take place this Sunday, and the heavyweight tournament will take place on 04/14. I would like information, but can not find any, on any of this tournaments. The article that brings all of this up mentions Signo is in the middleweight tournament. Perhaps 04/15 is all the title matches. All shows start at 2pm.

No follow up on Marco/UG, but the women’s feud goes on. Based on how Porra Fresa talked about it, looks like they’re headed to an Apache/Marcela vs Princesas tag match, not a singles match.
