UG took 2/3, the last with his feet on the ropes.

Next Saturday starts the Kid’s Day shows, so the Micros working that show would make some sense. Hope they make a stream at some point; they haven’t been since September.

NGD took 2/3 in what CMLL called one of the best matches of the year. 4th defense.

Though, in 2018, if you have a match and no one can see it afterwards, the rule is it can’t be one of the best of the year. Don’t look at me, I didn’t make the rules, but those are the rules.

There are promos from Pequeno Olimpico, Titan & Triton, the trios champs and the unsuccessful challengers.

It looks like Konnan was in Tijuana, so they made the decision not to put him on screen and weren’t covering for something like I was wondering.

Meanwhile, Dragon Lee rested for about a day and a half before going back in the gym, explaining he gets sad when he just stays home. I guess that means he’s OK?

Mesias’s match versus Cibernetico, the match hyped in his post AAA press conference, didn’t happen. It sounds like the promoter didn’t show up.

Pentagon Jr. won Impact’s Heavyweight Championship tonight. That’s obviously a change in plans, given Penta wasn’t supposed to be in the title match two weeks ago.  I thought this idea that Penta would show up at Verano de Escandalo with the belt would make sense, but he’s scheduled for an Impact show the same day. Impact tapes it’s next set of TV this week, so we’ll probably have a better idea then.

The Lucha Memes/Lucha Libre Boom/MDA show was announced as taking place on 06/17 in Arena Lopez Mateos. The Lucha Memes/Cara Lucha show today sounds like it went well, Full results tomorrow.
