5) Rey Bucanero, Shocker, Terrible b Atlantis, Marco Corleone, Máximo
Rudos are now Terriblemente Guapos y un Rey and were wearing TGR shirts. Rudos took 1/3 and beat up KeMonito after the match.
6) La Sombra, Negro Casas, Rush DQ Euforia, Último Guerrero, Volador Jr. [Relevos Increíbles]
Euforia replaced Thunder. Team Sombra took 1/3, the last with Sombra tossing his mask to Volador JR.
Thunder doesn’t show, so CMLL goes to it’s consent bailout move: more Volador/Sombra.
Not really sure what giving new t-shirts is going to do for Terrible, Bucanero and Shocker that the last few months of pushing has not. CMLL needs new people in the top mix but are clearly uninterested. Because this is we are in 2015, the first thing I did was search to see if there’s some supplement named “TGR”. (Not as far as I could find.) In an interview with Estadio Deportes, TGR declared they were against everyone, tecnico or rudos, making them exactly like the Ingobernables, the Electroshock trio, the Hellbrothers and every single other rudo faction to form in the last couple of years.

CMLL (FRI) 04/10/2015 Arena México

2) Fuego, Pegasso, Tritón vs Boby Zavala, Puma, Tiger
3) Syuri © vs Marcela [CMLL WOMEN]

5) Marco Corleone, Máximo, Rush vs Rey Bucanero, Shocker, Terrible
6) Volador Jr. vs La Sombra
La Sombra vs Volador Jr. singles matches by year (in any venue)
This’ll be #20. It’s only the 12th in Arena Mexico. (Sombra leads 6-4-1)
This is the first CMLL Women’s title match in Mexico since 2013. There’s been four title matches in Japan in that time. Usual practice is Marcela wins the title back here, though that feels even more underwhelming than usual.
