After they were done with this show, Rey Bucanero, Valiente and Fuego went over to Gimansio Juan De La Barrera, met up with Arkangel and Isis (already there as part of the expo?) and ran-in on the main event for reasons unknown.

AAA announced a 05/12 taping in Durango. That continues AAA’s pattern of taping AAA Sin Limite once every two weeks, and confirms tonight’s taping in Cordoba is for something else. Evolucion was said to be airing only on UTDN, so perhaps some of the classic matches and even longer versions of Sin Limite matches may be replaced by matches from this taping starting next week.

Drastic Boy won the DTU Alto Impacto championship on last night’s show in Ciudad Madero.

CMLL 52MX aired the Signo/Metalico lightning math, the Thunder match, and the relevos increibles main event from this past Sunday.

I’m heading to the Chilangamask/GALLI show tonight. It should be a fun time.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s long news update.
