Tecnicos took 1/3.
2) Dalis la Caribeña, Dark Angel, Marcela b Mima Shimoda, Princesa Sugheit, Tiffany
Mima’s first match back in Arena Mexico since her RENIA tour. Rudos took the first two, but were DQed for excessive violence after the second. Dalis pinned Tiffany to win.
3) Black Warrior, Fuego, Stuka Jr. DQ Niebla Roja, Pólvora, Rey Escorpion
Straight falls. Warrior beat Escorpion in the first, Escorpion fouled Warrior in the second.
4) Valiente b Namajague [lightning]
Valiente won via indian deathlock in 8 minutes.
5) Dragón Rojo Jr., Negro Casas, Último Guerrero b Atlantis, La Sombra, Triton
Negro pulled Atlantis mask and cradled him for the win. Triton has new music.
6) Euforia, Rey Bucanero, Terrible b La Máscara, Máximo, Rush
Euforia beat Maximo with the Euforica Special to give his team the win. TR wants their title shot next Friday.
At Thursday’s Todo x el Todo press conference, Hijo del Santo again introduced his son (as “Santo Jr.”, not Nieto del Santo.) The Santos had said they were not certain if Santo Jr. would become a luchador, but now Hijo del Santo says Santo Jr. is getting there. Before he wrestles his first match (in TxT), He’ll have to go thru training with Solar, maybe some additional special training in Japan, and prove to Hijo del Santo & the press that he’s ready to carry the name.
Fuerza Guerrera walked out before they really got started, annoyed with El Hijo del Santo & Huracan Ramirez (who he faces next week.)
A group of CMLL’s mini rudos were interviewed about what they’d match they’d like to see for the 20th Anniversary of the Pequeno Estrellas division. Demus suggested a triangle unification bout between himself (DF Light), Pierrothito (MEX Light) and Olimpico (CMLL Mini), and a show with only minis on it. Pierrothito said he’d have no problem with that title match, but also suggested a three way mask match between himself, Ultimo Dragoncito and Pequeno Olimpico since they’ve been there since the start. Pequeno Black Warrior’s idea is a sort of Gran Alternativa of minis with mixed teams – minis with full sized counterparts. He wants to team up with Black Warrior and face of versus Negro Casas. These are all amusing ideas which will not actually happen.

I’m out before the CMLL lineups are up today. Next Friday will include the first two Busca matches, and it sounded like last night that the trios title match is taking place on that show, but they’ve been a bit unclear on it.
