Tonight’s Arena Mexico show is built around debuts. Gran Guerrero debuts, at least under that name, in the main event trios match. He’ll team with his brother Ultimo Guerrero and Volador Jr. vs Atlantis, Sombra and Mistico. It’s a big spot for someone who appeared to be working openers not too long ago. Comandante Pierroth, who’s identity is less a certainty, debuts by teaming with the winning Gran Alternativa team to take on Blue Panther, La Mascara and Mascara Dorada. Rey Cometa & Namajague’s feud continues, and Mima Shimoda makes her return in the women’s match. This CMLL’s Mother’s Day show, so expect the usual male dance performance.
This is the last show on Friday night for more than two months with just one lightning match; the format will be changed around for En Busca de un Idolo.
