10) Chicano & Danny Casas © b Hijo de Máscara Año 2000 & Universo 2000 Jr. [IWRG IC TAG]
Champs took 2/3 to keep the titles, the last after Mascara accidentally hit Universo with a chair in a usual screwy third fall. first defense for Chicano & Dany Casas

Metaleon got big wins as part of IWRG FILL versus other schools in 2014 (most notable the AULL feud), so he was the favorite and makes sense as a winner. He’s also very good.

CMLL Puebla has Polvora vs Mistico tonight.

AAA’s TV included another Brian Cage promo. They’re making it very clear that Cage is getting the first shot at Alberto’s world title (at least in Mexico), and it’s just a matter of it’ll be at Rey de Reyes, held off for TripleMania, or done on TV somewhere in between. I’d lean towards a quick turn around for Rey de Reyes to give it both a more noteworthy match and to make sure Alberto gets in a defense before whatever comes next for him. We’ll have a better idea after they meet in trios in Queretaro 12 days from now.
