CMLL Informa announced the first eight teams for the Mexican National Tag Team Championship tournament. These eight teams will be in the 02/28 bracket.
- Titan & Soberano Jr.
- Templario & Hijo del Villano III
- Fuego & Dulce Gardenia
- Black Panther & Blue Panther Jr.
- Luciferno & Ephesto
- Misterioso & Sagrado
- Pegasso & Stigma
- Virus & Universo 2000 Jr.
This is the same week as the incredible pairs final, which is going to be a weird show.
Titan & Soberano are the clear favorite. Tempalrio would be up there with a stronger partner. (Hijo del Villano III’s current level is “he disappeared for a month and no one seemed to notice.”) These championships would be more useful if the Panthers had them or the fun seeming Fuego/Dulce Gardenia team did – just in the idea that it might give people who are good something to do, but there’s no guarantee of that.
That’s only half the teams. There was some talk on Informa about holding one spot open for the winning team of the incredible pairs tournament, but no decision had been made.
AAA confirmed Saturday’s AAA TV taping has moved from Guadalajara to Tonala. A person on Twitter says it’s closer to a 10 minute drive between the two venues, so this shouldn’t change all that much.
Panini has a new series of AAA stickers. These appear to be in English, which suggests these are intended to be marketed in the US. Nothing’s been said about them by AAA as of yet and Panini doesn’t appear to allow international orders.
Saturday’s The Crash opener was scheduled to be Gelus & Black Danger versus two disciples of Mesias. The disciples must be busy because The Crash says it’ll instead be Hijo del Impostor and El Dragon. Impostor is from Juarez so this Dragon is also probably the same. This is a shocking moment of a lucha libre promotion advertising a changed match.
