Sensei replaced Pegasso. Rudos took 1/3.
3) Diamante, Hijo del Fantasma, Sagrado b Sangre Azteca, Skándalo, Virus
Tecnicos took 2/3 when Virus & Skandalo couldn’t get along. Cancerbero & Raziel helped destroy Skandalo post match. Isis managed to get away unharmed.
4) Marcela b Princesa Sugheit [CMLL WOMEN]
Marcela is the champion and was scheduled to defend against Princesa Blanca, but Blanca came down with the flu. Sugheit took her place. Marcela took 1/3 to win, beating Sugheit with the Michinoku Driver after over shooting her a little bit on a top rope splash. Falls were 5:50, 3:41, and 6:26.
5) Máscara Dorada, Shocker, Valiente b Black Warrior, Terrible, Tiger
Vailente replaced Angel de Oro, still out with injury. Tecnicos took 1/3.
6) La Máscara, La Sombra, Titán b Dragón Rojo Jr., Pólvora, Rey Escorpión
Tecnicos took 1/3, Sombra and Rey Escorpion splitting the last two falls.
Rey Escorpion did a great job of making Sombra’s double moonsault look better for the finish.
Charlie Haas, Carlito, Chris Masters and Johnny Stamboli are listed as working a 02/01 show in Mexico. I wonder if this is what Chris Masters meant by working CMLL in February; it’d make a lot more sense.
