Silver King bled a ton in the main event. Wagner fouled Park. Fans threw money in. Park yelled at the fans, using quite the language, saying he didn’t need the fan’s money.

I was wondering if they were still doing TV tapings outside of Arena Naucalpan. This would be a yes. MA2K Jr. fouled Wagner, Wagner fouled MA2K Jr. back for the pin. Fuerza beat Multifacetico in the semifinal.

This was also an Azteca taping. Junior Capos interfered in the main event for the DQ. Semimain sets up a tag title match for this week. Tough night on the undercard – Halcon 2000 got knocked out int he second fall and Jack broke Xibalba’s nose with a forearm.

Card was shuffled because Black Terry had a leg injury and his singles match with Fuerza had to be pulled. Veneno challenged Solar to a title shot after beating him – is anyone allowed to challenge for the title besides Negro Navarro? Rudos fell apart after the main event loss, MA2K Jr and Ricky Cruzz teased a mask match. They’re going in that direction, sorta.
Besides all that’s already been mentioned, Superluchas #267 has a really good interview with Satanico.
In Ovaciones, Arturo’s Sunday column lambastes the Jucio Final match. He makes it very clear he has nothing against the wrestlers, just the programmers who are making things so obvious. Arturo picks Damian 666 as the most obvious to lose his hair, followed by Alex and Terrible. That seems reasonable.
Arturo also reveals the reason for AAA’s trip to New York (and back) on Wednesday – there’s a premire for a movie (on a yacht), an animanted movie featuring AAA wrestlers. No name of the movie is mentioned, which you’d think would be kinda important.
The main Ovaciones story is about the juggled Jucio Final undercard. There’s notes on upcoming IWRG shows as well.
There’s interview with Ricky Marvin by Notimex, presumably done at the press confrence. Ricky says he won’t give 100% at TripleMania – he’ll give 200% to make people happy. Not a lot new about Ricky – he’s spending most of his time in Japan because that’s where his family is, but he misses the food and language of Mexico. He doesn’t have any problems with CMLL, since he feels they put in him posotion to succeed elsewhere, and might work again with them one day. Ricky says he’s back in Mexico for 3 weeks, so he should make TV a couple times after TripleMania.
In an interview with Notimex, Shocker says the tecnicos should focus on Perro Aguayo Jr. in the cage match. Shocker also worries the Perros will be more focused and stronger after taking two losses this week – nowt hey know the tecnico crew is a real threat.
Accion’s CMLL highlights were of the atomicos main event, and pretty much as you’d expect. The AAA highlights were of the maine vent tag match from Cancun. The camera looked very wet, and it must’ve been tough conditions, though it seemed like it stopped raining here by the end. Chessman toped into a chair shot, then bleed over his red face paint (again.) After Zorro makes Cibernetico quit to win the match, Rodlan showed up. Zorro and Konnan took care of his security themselves. Roldan turned to leave, but Electro, Jack and Teddy had slipped into the ring to cut him off. The clips puase there – I guess the idea is what the Legion did to Roldan was so horrible (they say he was taken to the hospital), they refuse to show that sort of violence against officals. Did they do that bit on the actual TV show as well?
An OEM editoral wishes for the return of lucha libre movies.
Superluchas has a short article on the Idolos del Catch group in Buenos Aires.

They’re teasing something with Multifacetico with every one after him, but I’d guess Ricky Cruzz loses his mask rather quickly.

Putting aisde the Arena Coliseo Tag Team Titles for a sec, that minis match is close to a rematch from tonight’s match. Shockertico replaces Tzuki. I wonder who’s going to feud.
This could be Marco or Metal’s first match with their heads shaved! It won’t be.
