More blood. Mascaras took 1/3. Sr. was eliminated in the third fall, but snuck back in to foul Dr. Wagner Jr., and Mascara Jr. covered him for the win
Crowd looked pretty close to full. There’s also an interview with Mascara Ano 2000 Jr. If Angel Omar Reyes Franco is not his real name, no one seems to know what it really is; the Wrestling Observer Newsletter says Mascara Ano 2000 Sr. was telling people (both wrestlers and the office) that Junior was really his son.
