Tonight’s CMLL follows up on Dos Leyendas strongly. The Estetas/Guerreros trios title match takes place after being teased off and on the last month or so. The Estetas are the favorites to keep the titles, but a Guerreros title change is not of the question. Volador and Sombra meet in a special singles match, where the outcome is probably not as important as where it leaves both men going forward. The portion airing on Terra.mx (assuming it airs as scheduled!) includes the two hair matches from last Friday back as part of trios matches tonight.
Mask maker Arturo Bucio passed away. I don’t know a lot about the different mask makers, but I do know he was highly regarded for his work.
The Wrestling Observer says WWE’s announcement of Sin Cara’s dismissal was actually his no-compete ending. That means he’s now completely free to go anywhere he wants, including AAA’s TV taping in Ciudad Victoria on Saturday. I don’t think he’ll be there that soon, they probably would prefer to have him debut in a bigger moment. However, if Blue Demon Jr. misses AAA’s show again, then it’s not impossible AAA calls Sin Cara in as a last minute sub – as long as they can figure out what to call him.
Metalico suffered a separated shoulder in the En Busca de un Idolo tournament. Metalico says he could not give up, but really couldn’t do much and was easy picking for Cachorro. Metalico says the doctor’s do not yet know when he’ll be cleared to return. (CMLL Facebook posted a photo of Metalico in a sling before a TV appearance.) He notes his feud with Hijo del Signo (and how that just went away), and says he’s interested in feuding with someone else now – Hechicero! That sounds much better. CMLL should really take advantage of the story they’ve been handed and spend a year building to Metalico getting another shot in the tournament he nearly made.
Sexy Star, Pentagon Jr., Faby Apache do interviews to build up the mixed tag team title match that isn’t anywhere on the schedule. You know, if this was Cibernetico versus Perro Aguayo Jr. in a hair match, I’d totally understand holding it back for the right occasion. This is a mixed tag tema title match, you can do it any time and it’ll be fine. (Also, while I’m thinking about, this Saturday’s TV really should be pushing a DF taping for next week if one actually exists and has this title match.)
