6) Dr. Wagner Jr. b Último Guerrero
In the third fall, Wagner went for a superplex. UG blocked it, and got the Guerrero Special. UG covered, but pulled Wagner up at 3. (NOOOOOO – in Ovaciones on Friday, Ultimo said something about how he’d rather lose by rudo-ism if he left Wagner embarrassed than winning clean, and I guess that’s the idea here, though I don’t know if that was a good idea) Ref got bumped, Ultimo fouled Wagner, Wagner sold it for a split second, then yanked Ultimo’s mask and cradled him for the win. Challenges after the match, nothing set.
Semifinal had some bizarre booking. Lizmark Jr. pinned Panther twice to win the match in two falls, but broke up attacks by Perro and Hector in the process so he could get the pin himself – so they kicked him out of the group! The heck? Not sure if Lizmark is now a tecnico or an aligned rudo or someone who’s about to lose his mask still or what.
Guerreros lost in three falls, but the only fall they won was when Corelone accidentally hit his partners with his superman dive.
Nitro was in the match! Nitro. So no one really cared all week to correct the typo.

Big Anniversary tease is currently a Wagner/Ultimo mask match, and it doesn’t seem completely unlikely with no Mistico around. However, in today’s Ovaciones, Lizmark Jr. demands Blue Panther face him in a mask match. That’s not quite Terrible/Panther, but it still stands a chance of being terrible (and a miscarriage of justice.) Perhaps they’ll have both? Perhaps they’ll have neither.
Neutron is listed in Ovaciones and ESTO on the rudo side, so either it’s a mistake no one’s cared to correct, or they just haven’t cared to ask why.
ESTO’s article about Mistico’s injury puts the return time at more than six weeks. I’m sure he’ll rush back to make the anniversary show – he always does, and that’s exactly why this injury occurred – but they’re probably better off not expecting big things from Mistico on that anniversary show. Mistico will be in a fiber glass cast the first three weeks.
Atlantis talked a bit about his injuries to ESTO. He says he was out of it for 20-25 minutes on Sunday after being kicked in the head, and it wasn’t till he was in the hospital that he got his senses back. He’s taken the week off, except for work on direct to video movie he’s in, and does return to the ring on Sunday in Guadalajara. Atlantis mentions that he’ll soon be going on a tour in the US and Japan (the masked men tournament, right?) which will prevent him from participating on the Anniversary show. Atlantis calls Wagner a “hen.”

Next Sunday, there’s lucha libre at the Monterrey (California) County Fair at 6:30 pm. (link via the Californian. No names are listed. Same deal for the Oregon State Fair on August 25, though the picture of Atlantis makes me wonder if this is one of the US dates he mentioned.
