5) Bárbaro Cavernario & Herodes Jr. b Fly Star & Toxin Boy
Kriminal Boys left the match hurt.

Money thrown in, good match.
Tercera Caida posted the main event in full. Satanico either learned from the ChilangaMask match or just had a better match. Magnificos may have made their best of their chance; the CaraLucha match mentions them as members of the promotion going forward. That 2v2 match and a CMLL versus Familia de Tijuana match will take place on the 08/08 show.

So: trios title match and hair match on the 8th? Seems that way.
Alberto el Patron had a Twitter meltdown tonight, vowing to beat up Myzteziz when they next crossed paths at TripleMania. (Backup screens are here.) There was no explanation of what Myzteziz had actually done, just a lot of Alberto threats. He told Myzteziz to bring a gun and all of his friends from Tepito and Alberto was still going to beat him up.
Aerostar, Faby Apache, Machine Rocker, Taya, Australian Suicide, Ludxor, Argenis, Apache, Mascarita Sagrada, Octagoncito, Mini Histeria and Mini Psicosis are working four shows in Colombia at the start of August. There’s a press release here; it’s a summer festival which brought in CMLL luchadors four years ago. They do a nice job of changing the cards around slightly each day. The last show of the batch is Saturday, August 8th – and TripleMania is the next day. It would be rough but not impossible to make it back to Mexico City in time. Most of the people on that list seem like those who may not have a spot on TripleMania, so maybe that’s not the plan. Aerostar, Faby and Taya are the three big exceptions – someone’s got to work opposite Goya in a Relevos AAA – but it’d be a very long day if that’s the plan so it may not be. Guess we’ll know soon.
ChilangaMask added Trauma II versus Blue Panther to their 08/16 Arena Naucalpan show. That’s match five, so they’re getting close to a full card.
SuperLuchas looks back at a Mil Mascaras title defense, plus an interesting tale of a Solitario/Santo title match. Solitario tried to unmask Santo. Didn’t work, and Santo responded by unmasking Solitario and holding him so the entire crowd could get a good look. Solitario ran to the back, covering his face. Referee counted him out, and gave Santo the title. Commissioner immediately overruled the finish and declared it vacant. That sounds like there were some issues there. (It also sounds like I need to fix about six different title matches – Luchas 2000 records were right.)
The Gladiatores has a recap of Nicho defeating Pagano. Nicho was stretchered out after the match.
