This show between the two big Fridays shows was about as skippable as it gets; a Tuesday night show on Friday. Even the good stuff was good stuff we’ve seen many times. They did a few things to hint at the Kojima/Volador and Adonis/Peste Negra stuff, but nothing so important that you’d actually need to see them. Do not go back and watch this if you missed it.

Titan and Angel de Oro are part of an metro escalator campaign.
At the EMW/AAA show in Tijuana, Vampiro announced AAA’s talent search is unending and they’ll being having tryouts soon in the town. 126f pointed out it means AAA and The Crash will be fighting for the same prospects. We haven’t heard a detail about the new school since TripleMania.
Sexy Star says she’s saying goodbye to being Sexy Star. I guess that means she’s out of AAA, but none of Sexy Star’s words really mean anything.
It’s a slow weekend of shows, with most saved until next week
- Pro Wrestling Revolucion has Fenix vs Penta tonight at 9m CT on a $10 Fite iPPV.

- WUW in New York might have already started by the time you read this, but has a bunch of AAA & LU people.

5) Carístico, Flip Gordon, Volador Jr. vs Kojima, Mephisto, Último Guerrero
6) Niebla Roja vs Gran Guerrero [mask]
This is exactly the lineup that was in the paper on Thursday. The reason CMLL didn’t publish it on Thursday and didn’t publish it on Friday was not because they were scrambling to make changes, but because they don’t really care about this show and more than any other Friday.
Diamante Azul is still listed on the show. With CMLL, it’s still possible he’ll be taken out later.
