Rudos took 1/3, winning easily in the third.
Next week show is a Fan Appreciation show. There seemed to be a new fame ring announcer on this show.
Rodolfo Ruiz, Averno’s father and CMLL referee, says Averno is going to the WWE.
Shocker says he’s not sure if he’ll wrestle in Friday. He hasn’t actually been cleared to return, but is visiting the doctor this morning. (He did not sound that positive about it on Twitter. Shocker says he does not mind CMLL stripping him of his the NWA LH title, saying the company has to give opportunity to younger people and hopes they have an outstanding match for the title.
On Sunday, Ultimo Guerrero went to Guatemala’s FMLL promotion and won their Champion Du Monde over Voltron. Ultimo Guerrero was originally said to be defend the Universal Title (which Lyger has) and then just the CMLL World Title. It sure looks like the actual belt he brought to the ring with the UWE Tag Team Championship. Just weird.
