10:24. Volador took 1/3, the last by faking a foul.
Cavernario & Titan won by having some strong matches and should guarantee a great match for the final in two weeks. The back and forth in the block final was well done, especially the finish. It was helped a lot by that match getting more time than any other match on the show. Cavernario avenged his title match loss to Caristico and this feels like part of a continued elevation for him.
Gilbert and Volador have normal (for them) promos after the main event. In the media interviews, Volador says that Gilbert isn’t that good while Gilbert complains about not getting that match with Ultimo Guerrero. Titan & Barbaro Cavernario are fired up after winning this block. Akuma & Espanto Jr. want to form a team with Espiritu Negro.
No AAA TV this weekend. Some shows of note:
- The Crash in Tijuana has Rebelion Amarilla (Bestia, MechaWolf and a surprise partner) against NGD. There’s also a five way announced with Flamita, Titan, Rey Horus, Adam Brooks from Australia and another surprise person.
- Sunday CMLL Arena Mexico has a Terrible versus Valiente in a CMLL Heavyweight title match. A title change would be a surprise.
- IWRG has a Copa FILL with their students taking on Hip Hop Man’s students. Internet TV Deportes has been quietly streaming any IWRG they tape on their YouTube, so maybe check there if you’re interested and if +Lucha isn’t already doing it.
- ROH is taping TV tonight, so that won’t stream but will turn up later. They’ll be back on HonorClub tomorrow night with Caristico vs Bandido vs PJ Black vs Flip Gordon and Rush vs Soberano.
- DJZ finishes up in GALLI (and maybe on the indies entirely) Sunday night. I’m planning on going to this, but the weather is looking like it might be terrible getting there.
Fenix missed last night AAW show due to visa issues. He may not be appearing again in the US until that gets sorted out.

Sexy Dulce won her debut MMA fight a unanimous 30-27 decision. She looked dominant in the bout, but I’m not knowledgable enough to know if it was because she was fighting someone who also had no experience or if she’s good at this. They held it off to the end of the television broadcast, and most of the fans had left by the time she got into the cage. There’s no immediate word if she plans on fighting again. She is scheduled to wrestle in Acapulco for the KAOZ women’s championship tonight. It surprises me she would take that booking so close, but she did wear a KAOZ logo on her gear last night and people seem to expect her to be there. I assume she’s winning the title from Tiffany if she makes the match.
This has nothing directly to do with that fight, but Alberto looks so much happier working at Combate Americas than he has in wrestling in a long time. I hope that works out for him and he doesn’t wrestle again.
Azteca’s Los Protagonistas says they’ll have news on a new AAA wrestler on Tuesday. I don’t know how important this is.
Ayako Hamada will be signing autographs this Saturday at Solar’s store and says she’ll have an announcement about returning to her wrestling career soon.

Volador & Ultimo Guerrero are the favorites. They do lose some times, and Cuatrero & Mistico are listed at the same level. This is your periodic reminder that CMLL lists Rush as a tecnico. Hechicero & Stuka want to feud so badly and will be out in the first round unless something weird happens.
Rey Cometa versus Kawato San is the ultimate test to see if Kawato’s dive catching has improved. Tae Honma makes her debut that was announced months ago; she was training lucha with Mr. Cacao and Violento Jack. I can’t find it now, but I believe it was said she’s going to be around for only a couple weeks, not as long as Kaho has been.
