2) Demus 3:16 & Pequeño Nitro b Astral & Eléctrico
3) Akuma, Nitro, Yoruba b Hombre Bala Jr., Super Ciudadano, Súper Halcón Jr.

An Isis distraction set up a foul on La Mascara for the rudo win.
5) Último Dragón b Rey Bucanero [
PWF JH NWA IJ?]
Ultimo Dragon is champion.
This was the All Japan (PWF) junior heavyweight championship, not the NWA one he’s previously defended here. This was announced as a PWF Junior Heavywight Championship, but the belt in the photos is the NWA International Junior Championship. Seconds were Arkangel and Principe Azteca. Bucanero pulled Dragon’s mask for the DQ, Bucanero won the second. Both luchadors accidentally hit referee Rafael el Maya in the third knocking him out, Olimpico & Arkangel ran in to attack Dragon, Brazo de Plata ‘ran’ them off, and replacement referee Babe Richard took over as Dragon submitted Rey Bucanero for the win. Third defense.
The Observer said this would be taped for Japan TV, for some reason. Next show should be the annual DragonMania show at Arena Mexico, probably 05/10.

2) Chico Che, Emperador Azteca, La Magnifica b Dowki, Hanaoka, Imposible
Hanaoka replaced Sadica, so it was 3 men vs 2 men & 1 La Magnifica. Emperador Azteca wants a shot at Imposible’s title. Imposible asked a fan, who said no. So, no.

Trauma II falls on third defense, Super Nova wins the title.

5) Oficial AK47 L Black Terry, Apolo Estrada Jr., Hijo de Máscara Año 2000, Relámpago, Skayde [cage, loser advances]
Order of escape started Apolo, Skayde, Hijo de Mascara. Terry & Official tied Relampago’s mask to the ropes to trap him, but he just unmasked himself, covered himself with his shirt, and left. Tony Rivera tried to help AK47 so Terry would lose, but it backfired and AK47 lost instead.
6) Tony Rivera b Oficial AK47 [cage, hair]
Tony tied AK47’s boot to the ropes and climbed out for the win. Oficial AK-47’s second hair loss in just over three months. Tony claims this is his 57th hair match win.
CMLL.com interviewed former apuesta victims of Shocker for their predictions on his match with Rush. Mascara Ano 2000, who lost his hair to Shocker in Puebla in 2003, says he hopes Shocker gives Rush a fight even if he doesn’t win. Rey Bucanero said Shocker is his most hated rival, but he’s got to beat Rush in Arena Mexico. Rambo said he just wants to see the match, which is good since that may be his job on Friday. Scorpio Jr. wants Shocker to hold high the name of the Guapos and shave Rush. No word what Yoshi-Hashi thinks of all of this.
Terra usually puts up a short article on Mondays previewing the Friday and Sunday CMLL shows. If CMLL and Terra are planning on streaming the entire show, they’ll make it clear in that article.
Rayo de Jalisco, Rayman and All Carrillo defeated Hijo del Solitario, Angel Blanco Jr. and Cien Caras Jr. by DQ (foul) in the main event of a legends show in Arena Jalisco.
Mascara Dorada defeated Rey Bucanero in a trios match in Couzmel (on Sunday, maybe?) when Bucanero fouled Dorada. The article says they drew 800, which doesn’t sound like a lot, but the promoters sounded happy and planned on bringing in more guys soon.
Ricky Marvin missed the WXW shows in Germany over the weekend, saying his passport expired. He was in NOAH in January, so that must’ve been pretty recent (and you’d think someone would’ve pointed it out when he was using a nearly expired passport.)
LuchaWorld has this week’s PosterMania.
Rey Escorpion still doesn’t like Maximo, still wants to take his hair.
