Sin Cara debuted in AAA – kind of. Friday’s main event included the usual post match brawl, but that was interrupted by a mystery figure posing on the stage for about a half minute before the lights went out and the mystery person disappeared. Mistico’s music played throughout. It was definitely him and he’s under contract to AAA, but his name and mask is a more of an issue. It’s said WWE threatened AAA over use of the name or mask, and so Sin Cara’s head was hidden under a hood for his brief appearance. Sin Cara’s said he’ll have the rights to the name by May but it’s unclear how that would happen, or how AAA could use him until that point.
The rest of AAA’s show was busy as well. Before it even took place, it was announced to be the first of a series of “monthly” AAA events at Gimnasio Juan de la Barrera, though the next date has yet to be announced. Black Warrior, Sin Cara’s old rival, returned to AAA as a member of Perros del Mal and won the last spot in the Rey de Reyes final. A domed cage apuesta match with the Mexican Powers, Fenix and Anarkia was set for Rey de Reyes. A mixed tag title match and Psycho vs Texano in some form also seem likely, though AAA still hasn’t announced much of the card.
Hijo del Santo’s wife has been telling people Santo has been told he can’t continue to wrestle after his scheduled neck surgery, will postpone the surgery to have a couple of matches later this year, then retire. Santo hasn’t officially said anything yet, but is expected to say something this weekend.
Barbaro Cavernario and Mr. Niebla won the 2014 CMLL Gran Alternativa over Soberano Jr & Volador Jr. The tournament seemed to focus more on the veterans than the novatos, and Cavernario (who may have lost his first name) was already headed to a bigger position as part of Peste Negra.
Peste Negra also won the Mexican Trios titles. It was a surprise win, since Niebla seems to be teaming with Cavernario & Herodes going forward, but it’s not as if Titan, La Mascara and Rush were frequent partners. Peste Negra are also challenging for the World Trios titles in Puebla next week. The only down note for Peste Negra was Negro Casas hurting his shoulder last Friday, which will keep him out for a couple weeks.
