OGT came to the ring, but were interrupted by Ricky Marvin. Marvin introduced Parka & Argenis as his partners. Vampiro suspended Averno (???) so this became a 2v2 match. Argenis pinned Chessman

Cuervo & Scoria cost Mesias & Pagano the match, and Mesias & Pagano were tense towards each other.
7) Kevin Kross b Psycho Clown
everyone else on the show ran in on this match, including Hijo del Fantasma (who was scheduled for this match but didn’t wrestle for unclear reasons.) Kross beat Psycho and took out a few other people.
Air Date: 05/20 & 05/27
AAA changed every match on the card, came up with stipulations which weren’t promoted before hand and ended the show with everyone in the building running in. Most every change could’ve been explained prior to the show, but AAA is doing it because they think it’s working and because they can.
The mixed tag team titles had been a useless championship for years, and ceased to exist over a year ago without anyone missing them in the meantime. There’s no real use necessity in bringing them back, but AAA has seemed to love Big Mami even before the creative change and she’s still featured as the star of pretty much every match she’s in, so maybe they have some plan here.
Vampiro’s making a lot of decisions that seem to backfire. The big storyline of the first season of Lucha Underground was Vampiro revealing himself to be the evil mastermind behind Pentagon, and Vampiro again revealing himself as Actually Evil is definitely in play here.
Those air dates are nearly a month away. All the changes and activity makes it hard to remember what happened when, more so when the show with it isn’t going to air for weeks. It’ll be that way for a while: AAA TV this week says the 05/20 Contla taping is still on, so every taping won’t air for at least three weeks for the foreseeable future. We should get that Contla taping as soon as Monday, given we already have the taping after it.
AAA takes two weeks off and returns for TV on 05/16 in Pachuca.
