1) Mini Charly Manson & Mini Histeria b Dinastía & Mascarita Dorada
Manson pinned Dorada with feet on the ropes, continuing their feud.
2) Gran Apache & Mari Apache b Cuervo & Fabi Apache
Halloween interfered many times to help the Apaches to win. This was explained after the match, where Halloween offered flowers to Mari Apache and said he was in love with her. Mari turned him down. Halloween was very sad.
3) Devil Rocker, Machine Rocker, Soul Rocker b Alebrije, Fenix, Samurai del Sol
Inferno Rockers kept their win streak going.
4) Chessman, Halloween, Psicosis b Cibernético, Héctor Garza, Ozz
Chessman speared Ozz for the win, then Perro and Konnan called the tecnicos (especially Garza) names.
5) Dr. Wagner Jr., Electroshock, Jack Evans b Máscara Año 2000 Jr., Silver King, Teddy Hart
Wagner Driver on Teddy Hart for the win. The big news was prematch, where Mascara Ano 2000 Jr. debuted a new mascot – Ke Changuito!

Air Date: let’s go with 09/30, although everything is fluid. By airing the top matches this past Saturday on the main show, that means the previous 2 taping Tampico show has been but to 1 (due to TripleMania running long) and everything else shifts up a week until the next time plans change. It also means they’d have to tape Heroes Inmortales on a Sunday to air on the following Saturday.

With the new setup, only the two main events should be expected to air on the national show. The undercard sounds excellent, but will only air on the regional show (and probably should be, since the stuff in the main even is how they’re selling Heroes Inmortales.) This pattern changes if they have a two taping show, but that doesn’t seem likely until SLP.

A lot of patriotic colors on display for this show, as you’d expect for the holiday weekend.

It seems like they’re setting up Dorada vs Manson as a apuesta match down the line. They haven’t gotten to mask pulling yet, so it’s way down the line. (Like March or June.)

Black Terry hadn’t gotten thru the main event pictures yet, so you’re stuck with only the shot from AAA’s Twitter on the Consejo monkey. My official position is it’s hilarious they’d have their own fake Monito (and it’s probably Trolly in the gear), but they’re apparently getting enough negative reaction to push back on it on Twitter and Facebook today.

I have not gotten to this week’s TV, but the Mari Apache & Halloween bit appears to have come from left field. (And goes right back there, as they’re not teamed up in any upcoming match.) It can’t be worse than Fabi Apache and Cuervo, who did not show any romantic chemistry in the interview from Tercera Caida.

Next taping is 09/28 in Naucalpan. Lineup, with a few familiar IWRG names, will be up shortly.
