5) Máscara Dorada, Prince Devitt, Shocker DQ Averno, Último Guerrero, Volador Jr.
Devitt started bleeding from the inside of his ear for no apparent reason in the first fall. Tecnicos took 2/3, UG drawing the DQ for fouling Shocker. Shocker wanted a mask vs hair match, UG would agree to only a singles match.

1) Andy Boy & Star Boy Jr. b Guerrero Mixteco & Matrix Jr.
straight falls
2) Dr. Cerebro, Pacto Negro, The Mummy b Chicano, Saruman, Tritón
Mummy & Dr. Cerebro replaced Comando Negro & Impossible
3) Alan Extreme, Black Terry, Bombero Infernal b Dinamic Black, Fresero Jr., Mike Segura
Fresero replaced Tony Rivera, which means no Bombero/Tony feud this week. Suicida replaced Golden Magic. Rudos took 1/3.
4) Angelico, Trauma I, Trauma II DQ Bestia 666, Damián 666, X-Fly
Angelico wore a Trauma mask to start the match. Tecnicos took 2/3. Trauma I was about to beat Damian when X-Fly hit him with the chair.
5) Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Hijo del Dr. Wagner Jr., Pirata Morgan b Hijo de LA Park, Hijo de Mascara Sagrada, Máscara Sagrada
Rudos took 2/3.

CMLL TV announced the other eight Gran Alternativa participants: Signo, Triton, Bronco, Fuego, Cancerbero, Hombre Bala Jr., Raziel, Diamante. Triton & Diamante seem like outside chances for winning, but CMLL hasn’t been too strong on either of them. I’m rooting for a Raziel vs Euforia final. Meanwhile, CMLL.com has a photo of Niebla Roja and confirms he’s a Lagunero.

La Catedral suggests the Gran Alternative could set up the new Mistico, and Dragon Lee, Diamante, and Triton would be the tournament favorites in that case. I am skeptical on any and all New Misticos existing, but would strongly root for anything to get Diamante a name change.

R de Rudo’s report on the Perros del Mal new member introduction has some interesting tidbits. The office has moved (or maybe Damian’s keeping the old office.) Perro says the group has always been about bringing in new people and springboarding people to greater success (mentioning Terrible, Texano, Averno & Mephisto here) and hopes that continue. Perros does says that Damian had told him he was leaving 3 months ago, which runs counter to the story Damian’s been telling (but is much more believable.)

Octagon explains he turned on La Parka because Parka was more focused on his feud with Cibernetico than the goals of La Sociedad. Octagon, as leader of Milica, also did not like how Parka was treating his men. La Parka says he knew things were going wrong after a meeting with Dorian and Octagon before the show (maybe something that airs on TV?), but will still not be friends with Cibernetico because Ciber attacked his family. Hey, Ozz & Cuervo are free now, maybe they can put the Inframundo back together. La Parka vs Octagon as a singles match alone is a hazardous idea.

More info on Silver King Jr. (via SML), who’s wrestling on the family vs family Arena Naucalpan show. He’s living in Chihuahua and has used the names Sexi Tiger Jr. and wrestled on the Dr. Wagner Sr. tribute show as Silver Star.

SuperLuchas #444 has the Aguayos and the Mascaras.

Another long story about lucha libre in Monterrey, including Sangre Chicana declaring “if he dies”, it’ll be in a gym, and Humberto Garza complaining about wrestlers just hitting each other with light tubes and bleeding while Kaientai explains he got his ideas on wrestling from an FMW tape he found.
