Dinastia (Draztik Boy), Dragon Bane, and La Parkita vs Mini Murder Clown, Mini Monster Clown, and Latigo
I don’t usually like reviews minis matches from AAA because they don’t do stories for them. CMLL does for the midgets even if they are dry stories. It’s still something, but I’d like to make note that La Parkita nearly killed himself cracking his skull on the ground doing a swanton bomb. Later in the show they revealed he was okay.
Winners: Draztik Boy, Dragon Bane and La Parkita
Super Porky or Brazo de Plata comes out to cut a promo. Mascara confronts him and Psycho Clown then confronts him. Porky has a walker. :/

Oro is trying to chase down Bestia as the ring girls bring Terrible his Champion of the Universe belt. Oro gets the mic and he’s heated. He’s walking up the ramp to confront him. Now Roja has the mic. The mic is very poorly connected to the TV audio, as it’s echoing. But I did make out hair vs hair that Niebla Roja challenged Terrible too. I wonder if at their big March show they do a tag team Hair vs Hair involving Terrible and Bestia facing Oro and Roja. They set the seeds a little bit in the earlier match involving Roja and Oro for it to be a tag team.
Winner: El Terrible
