Made no DQ. Cuervo & Scoria (randomly?) decided to help Cage, causing Angelico & Jack to even the odds and the match turned into a trios. Alberto beat Cage.
Air Date: 05/09 & 05/16
Building looked pretty full.
The last member of the Mexico Team 2 will be determined on Saturday. They really need a better name than Mexico Team 2, and perhaps that’s also coming on Saturday. Averno advancing would make the trio an authentic Team (ex)-CMLL. They could just bring back the Consejo shirts for one last night, and Victoria gets a team ‘representing’ the promotion that didn’t want to take part.
(The other participants in Saturday’s qualifier, Zorro and Psycho Crown – as Brazo de Plata Jr. & Kronoz – were both in CMLL during the early parts of their career, but are far more known as AAA luchadors.)
If they’re going to do it that way, the Lucha World Cup almost has a Team (ex-)NJPW as well, with Kenzo & Tiger Mask III.
AAA’s setting up Verano de Escandalo as they’re setting up the World Cup. The minis and tag title matches should join Cage/Alberto as matches for the June 15th show. Angelico & Jack vs Cuervo & Scoria is still on track to happen, making four of a seven or eight match card.
Drago missing this show after he was banned from the Temple the previous night on Lucha Underground was amusing. It may have been a designed absence since it set up the tag title match. Tecnicos specifically said they wanted to do it at Verano de Escandalo.
Next taping is Saturday back in Pachuca.
