Rafaga & Demonio Maya took 1/3. Exterminador was hurt on a tope in the third, grabbing his face. Malefico beat Demnio Maya, Rafaga armbared Malefico, and Exterminador could not return to the ring before the countout. Rafaga knocked Exterminador off the strecher post match.

One fall match, but not a lightning match. Mije was with Psicosis. Psicosis jumped Fantamsa, and him with a giant poster. Psicosis avoided the Phantom Lariat, flapjacked Fantamsan, and put him in an Indian Deathlock for his first CMLL singles win.

AAA has plans for internationalization “in late 2012 or 2013″. I see the goalposts moving. (Article also says “they’re very close to getting to the US, but can’t talk about it.”)
LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.
- A vendor posts his criticisms with the Lucha Libre Expo. Unless I missed it, there was no mention of definitely the Expo coming back next year.
- SuperLuchas #477 has Santo & the Expo.
- Mistico’s goal is winning Ultimo Guerrero‘s mask. Good luck on that one.
- Lady Afrodita does not know if she’s a tecnica or rudas. (She’d rather be a ruda.)
