1) Epidemia b Johnny Rivera
2) Freelance & Saruman b Eita & Imposible
Tecnicos took 1/3. Eita and Freelance have a slight feud.
3) Centvrión, Dinamic Black, La Cobra b Carta Brava Jr., Chicano, Fishman Jr.
Chicano hurt his shoulder in the first fall and sat out the rest. Tecnicos took 1/3, the last when a mystery man came out and hit Carta Brava to set up a Cobra pinfall. Both sides were confused by the run-in. The mystery man revealed himself to be IWL’s Carta Brava. Both Carta Bravas fought until the refs broke them up.
4) Alan Extreme, Black Terry, Súper Nova b Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro
Black Terry’s trio took 2/3. In the third, Fiero and Nova dived out of the week. Alan went for his own dive, but the oficial just moved out of the way and Alan Extreme crashed and burned. Referees checked on Alan. Terry was angry, fouled 911, and got away with it for the win.
5) Cien Caras Jr., Trauma I, Trauma II b Hijo de Máscara Año 2000, Hijo del Dr. Wagner Jr., Negro Navarro [Relevos Increíbles]
No one was happy to fight their usual friends. Trauma I’s team won straight falls. In the last, Negro had Cien pinned, Cien reversed the cradle, and Mascara helped his cousin (but his enemy in this match) hold Navarro down for 3. The usual sides fought after the match.
CMLL is pushing today as the actual anniversary (lower case) of CMLL, noting an Irishman (Ciclon Mackey) appeared on the first show, and an Irishman will be on today’s show. The show is a much lower wattage show than last week, with both big feuds meeting in trios tonight. Semimain should continue the Dragon/Devitt feud.
Mil Mascaras, in hyping his match with Hijo del Solitario explains he’s in the United States all the time lecturing at universities. He’s also defending his championship all time, including in Nigeria. He’s not planning on retiring any time soon.
The LWF shows in Colombia, mentioned a lot on this week’s AAA TV, are now officially postponed for last Saturday and this Saturday. The promotion is blaming a new law, which is at least a novel excuse. The third show for next weekend is still on, for the moment.
Taichi says he’s not going home until he gets 10,000 followers. Everyone follow Taichi. Or maybe we can just pitch in $26?
