Said to be a good match. Carta Brava and Chicano continue to feud.
3) Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro b Oficial Factor, Oficial Rayan, Oficial Spartan
bloody mask ripping battle. Originals won in straight falls. Plenty of challenges post match.

Elimination order went FdT, Veneno & Relampago (by Mascara/Scorpio) then Scorpio was submitted by Negro, Negro was pinned by Mascara (with help from Scorpio), and Trauma II beat Mascara after a tope. Trauma challenged Mascara for a title match.

Mascara Sagrada won the first, then collided into Cien Caras Jr. and was rolled up to lose the second. Cien Caras Jr. & Hijo del Mascara Sagrada got involved in the third. Cien won clean with a powerbomb.
AAA tapes tonight in Toluca, for the final two weeks prior to TripleMania. The main event is LA Park vs Abyss for Park’s Latin American title, with the Jarretts in Park’s corner. Given the emphasis on the Team Joaquin vs Team Roldan feud, it should be no surprise if Abyss wins with help from the Jarretts and is announced as his partner for TripleMania. Cibernetico and Hector Garza, two guys not on TripleMania, are in the semimain here. That seems to be a setup to something. Two other interesting names are Sugi and Vampiro; Is Sugi still working here? If Vampiro is not on TripleMania, will he still be here? Elsewhere, Consejo and Psycho Circus meet in a non-title match (Psycho Circus are upset about what Consejo did to the trios titles) and the women open the show.
Arena Mexico has the big return of Nosfeartu. In actually relevant news, Titan passes on his guaranteed title shot to team with Atlantis and take on Ultimo Guerrero & Euforia after the later two cheated Titan out of his win last week. (Ultimo Guerrero says he warned Atlantis about facing such strong Laguneros as himself as Euforia.) Main event is a near rematch of last week’s main event trios, where Volador beat Sombra for the win.
There’s also the first of five straight shows in Arena Coliseo Guadalajara on Friday night. Tonight’s show has a cibernetico to determine a Occidente heavyweight champion, with the final two meeting next week for the belt. Solar I and Valiente take on Negro Navarro & Virus in a special match where someone needs to sneak in a camera.
Other notes from the AAA TripleMania press conference:
- Dorian and LA Park argued, with Dorian suggesting whoever’s side loses must leave AAA. Sounded like that was just talk and not a stip.
- Cibernetico backed up Mesias after he got into a fight with Perro Aguayo Jr. It’s possible he and Garza could be in their friend’s corners for the title match. Joaquin did emphasis that the title match will be one on one, so a change seems unlikely.
- Perro Aguayo Jr. announced the Perros would have their own TripleMania press conference on 19th.
- Mascara Ano 2000 Jr., still being questioning about why he’s in Consejo, claimed he joined the group for getting the mask match with Dr. Wagner Jr. I believe that’s 100% true. Hijo de Dr. Wagner Jr. and Mascara Ano 2000 Jr. got in a fight.
- R de Rudo mentions three people will be added to the AAA Hall of Fame (no names), and the show will NOT be broadcast on PPV.
- Abyss is still on the poster. I’m not sure why they wouldn’t just say Abyss is Jarrett’s partner if he is.
Rob has a lucha dark match from WCW.
LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.
- Mascara would be willing to face Rey Escorpion in a hair vs mask match at the Anniversary show. Dream big.
- Bestia 666 says Dragon Lee is good, but the only Mistico is Sin Cara.
- Mr. Niebla hypes his match with Volador.
- Kalibuz has to change his name, and is asking his fans for suggestions.
- Kamilion returns to the ring Sunday.
- Ohtani’s Jacket has more 90s CMLL reviews.
