Mistico, Dragon Lee, and Diamante Azul vs Mr. Niebla, Mephisto, and Rey Bucanero
CMLL’s sound just goes out during the entrances. I’m sure they won’t fix that like their Monday show. Story for this match and future shows is, Shocker has disappeared off of CMLL’s future bookings so there’s another issue with him. This happened sometime last year as well. If you remember with Mr. Niebla he was drunk during a match and they went to the finish. It pissed off the participants. Anyway to start the match, Azul and Bucanero lock up and fight for take downs until they both get one and then trade moves. Niebla comes in the ring quick to knock Mistico off the apron to crotch him on the barricade. Mephisto fights Lee on the ramp way. Mephisto throws him into the walk way stairs.

A whole lot of brawling in this match. The ref finally had it with all the brawling so he DQ’s Mephisto for crotching Mistico. Or just because the rudos wouldn’t listen. Let’s go with that.

Cuatrero gets slammed and Cavernario hits a slingshot splash for the pin. Cavernario holds up Forastero and Gilbert hits a code breaker. First Fall: Gilbert pins Forastero with a code breaker.

As the third round starts as you can suspect Terrible and Bestia continue to beat on them. Bestia power bombs Roja off the top and only gets a two count.

Oro hurricanrana’s Terrible to the outside and then hits a dive through the middle rope. On that dive however it looks like Terrible actually dislocated his shoulder. The ref went to the outside and helped put it back in place. Wow. The doctor is still checking on him. He’s definitely trying to tough it out during the finishing sequence. Oro gets him down and puts him in a sharpshooter for the win. Third Fall: Angel de Oro submits Terrible with a sharpshooter.
Bestia tries to brawl afterwards but to no avail. His partner isn’t able to help. Finally they are shaving their heads. Bestia at least. They’ll probably do Terrible back stage. As I say that Terrible comes out like a man with his arm up to get his just due.
Winners: Angel de Oro and Niebla Roja
