6) La Máscara b Penta Zero M [super libre] The Crash La Mascara vs Penta 0M (Lucha Super Libre) (posted by MegaKakashi619)
Garza, Bestia, and Daga all got involved in the main event, which La Mascara fouling and unmasking Penta after a ref bump. Team Yellow put the referee thru a wood panel post match. Black Taurus showed up wearing a Yellow shirt post match, so he’s on their team too.

Penta challenged Mascara to a mask vs hair match at The Crash Anniversary show, which I believe would be in November.

Rey Horuz missed both this show and Mexicali. He did end it to Monterrey, where they had a surprise The Crash Cruiserweight multiman match and Rey Fenix ended up with the title. Rey Horus and The Crash had decided to go separate ways in advance of these cards and that’s his last match for the time being.

The Crash says they’ll be back on 09/02, which shapes up as a difficult date for getting talent with BOLA going on that weekend. That might be why the undercard feuds (Daga/Garza, Jack/Bestia, Oraculo/Black Danger) are getting more attention, since those guys are all free.

tecnicos took falls 2/3

Marcela/Zeuxis should be fun. REINA’s site confirms this is meant to be Heidi’s title; no idea if Keyra is still champion, but this isn’t about her title.

The Mexican promoters of the Mayweather/McGregor fight say it’ll air on free TV, as expected. They haven’t announced a network, but it’s expected to be Televisa. There’s still no official announced plans for AAA TripleMania, but they have time – if they announce something two weeks out (by this Saturday), they’re still doing good.

Record has a brief interview with Angelico, who’s returned from his European trip feeling that the wrestling there is better than Mexican wrestling at the moment. He feels Europeans have advanced, while Mexican wrestling has not advanced and are always doing the same stuff, and Mexican wrestlers are too content with their places and aren’t aiming to be the best. He’s not wrong.

Either this is a setup for a rudo turn or a setup for him heading back to Europe.

This week’s AAA show is up.

CMLL (SUN) 08/13/2017 Arena México
1) Bengala & Sonic vs Artillero & Espanto Jr.
2) Astral, Oro Jr., Sensei vs Canelo Casas, Hijo del Signo, Nitro
3) Johnny Idol, Pegasso, Stigma vs Misterioso Jr., Sagrado, Virus

5) Ángel de Oro, Titán, Valiente vs Cuatrero, Hechicero, Sansón
6) Carístico, Marco Corleone, Volador Jr. vs Cavernario, Gran Guerrero, Shocker

This would be Shocker’s first match in a CMLL ring in four weeks, though he was scheduled to work the fair shows in Durango this past weekend and appeared to make them. He was working indie shows, which suggests it wasn’t an injury absence. Semimain looks like it’d be a lot of fun. Again, Zeuxis was already announced as appearing in REINA in October, so that seems like the outcome.

1) Mr. Ángel & Último Ángel vs Destello & Destructor
2) Black Sugar & Cosmos vs Linterna & Thunder Boy
