Great/Excellent Matches

La Sombra vs Volador Jr. in a super libre match: GREAT.
(the Blue Panther match was very good but felt it left too much on the table. May be too picky here.)

Estrellita and Amapola being set up to feud hints at a result for Estrellita vs Sugheit this Sunday.

AAA posted the official lineup San Luis Potosi for 10/02. KrisZ found this a ways back, but the poster ads a stipulation. The Axel & Fenix vs Pentagon Jr. & Ultimo Gladiador vs Escoria & Espiritu tag match is said to determine the third challenging teams to the tag team titles. I didn’t know we had the two others! The main event on that show is also a three way tag match but has no such stipulation. That leaves the other two teams who three way tag matches in the last month: Angelico & Jack Evans (Naucalpan) and Aerostar & Drago (Toluca.) They, and the winners in SLP will probably face the Mexican Powers at Heroes Inmortales. It’s three tecnico teams, so it seems likely a rudo team will be added to balance it a bit. It depends on what the plans are for La Secta.

Maybe this will all begin to be explains when Naucalpan airs this week? It’s a secret tournament so far.

Mistico says the fans have started to accept him as being unique (???) and want to keep the trios titles so he can be champion on his birthday (the 15th.)
