A night for underdogs. From the second on up, the less favored side took the win.
Semimain went 2 falls. Japanese picked up the first fall clean, then the Mexicans got DQed for either a foul or some weapons shots on Yujiro.
In the main event, the rudos were finally able to take down Strong Man. Double suplex by Atlantis & UG, and a plancha by Niebla to finish him. Mr. Niebla was dressed like Santa Claus on the way to the ring. I dunno.
Rey Cometa got his leg caught into the ropes while going for his dive and was trapped for a while. Hooligan untangled him, but Cometa did not finish the match. Flash continues to wrestle as Flash, about 10 days after the announced name change.
TDN aired 2 and 3, so 4, 5, 6, should air on Televisa.
Texano talks to Fuego en el Ring about his two big matches in one week. He also says he and Terrible were not originally in NJPW’s plans for guys to bring over, but they so impressed them in a match that they made the list.
ESTO previews the Perros del Mal shows over the two weeks.
Cronicas y Leyendas looks back at Rey Mendoza vs Ring Fujinami.
SuperLuchas has a short piece on the lucha libre shows in New York last weekend. Haven’t seen anything much on those shows.

Dalis is spelled “Daliz” this time on the poster.
Terrible & Texano, wrestling bald for the first time? (Probably not.)
