5) Euforia, Gran Guerrero, Último Guerrero b Carístico, Valiente, Volador Jr.
rudos took 1/3. UG used the ropes to pin Volador, setting up a singles match between them next week.
CMLL is going to run Volador versus Ultimo Guerrero on Friday and Volador versus Ultimo Guerrero again four days later. Those two aren’t creative with their matches in general. Twice in two days is going to make it worse.
Negro Casas will appear on Informa today, talking about his recent surgery. There’s been no word about what injury he had.
Tonight is episode 6 of Lucha Capital. It is the final match of the second round of matches. Everyone will have had two matches (or just be out of the tournament, like Fenix.) It is an AAA tournament, it is unlikely everything will make sense by the end, but here is where everything stands:
wrestling tonight with 1 win: Australian Suicide, Laredo Kid, Psycho Clown, Texano Jr.
wrestling tonight with 1 loss: Taya, La Hiedra, Murder Clown, Taurus
eliminated (5): Puma King, Lady Maravilla, Nino Hamburguesa, Golden Magic, Fenix (injury)
advanced to the wild card show (8): Aerostar, Drago, Hijo del Vikingo, Keyra, Killer Kross, Mascarita Sagrada, Maximo, Vanilla
advanced to the final show (3): Pentagon Jr., Pagano, Lady Shani
The way the rules were explained originally, Lucha Capital would have 12 people in the final. That appears to be impossible to happen given the rules that have been announced and the people who are left. Most any outcome leaves 11 people left, so perhaps Scarlett’s role in this tournament is being added in the final week. They’ll also probably have to run tag matches next week, or they’ll be stuck running 7 or 8 singles matches.
That’s next week’s problem. There are no matches announced tonight, because they can’t be accused of changing matches if they don’t announce them. I would figure Psycho Clown advanced to the final and La Hiedra is eliminated, but everything else is unclear.
The WWE Latin America tryout finished yesterday. There’s a picture of the complete (43 person) field on Twitter. WWE is running a show in Chile tonight. That would be the logical place to make any announcements coming out of this tryout.
Impact will return to Fronton Mexico in Mexico City on January 11th and January 12th. That’s a Friday and a Saturday. CMLL probably isn’t running anything big on that Friday, and AAA may not be back until the week after, so this is easier dates for Impact this time around. Maybe they’ll even be able to get Fenix & Penta for both days.
A video of a group of people, including what appears to be a child in a La Parka outfit, doing wrestling bits at a Tijuana stop light went viral yesterday. People doing tricks for tips in Mexico is uncommon but happens; I saw a firebreather once on a trip. Anyway, because it is Parka and a viral video (like the gas station workers who were doing wrestling spots), AAA wants to meet the kid to give him a prize.
Ultimo Maldito was added to Saturday’s AAA TV at Arena Xalapa a few weeks ago. That means today he’s off the MexaWrestling show. Aramis will replace him, facing Rey Horus, Toxin, Arez and Arkangel Divino. Divino is going to be tested not having his brother there.
AAA will put up part 1 of Heroes Inmortales this weekend. They’ve cut down the gap between airing to about 6 weeks from over two months.

This card was a changed a lot from what Box y Lucha had. It is a lot of random matches anyway.
