***79th Anniversary Show***
1) Dalis la Caribeña, Goya Kong, Marcela b Amapola, Princesa Blanca, Tiffany
Tecnicas took 1/2. Marcela pinned Tiffany with Dalis helping Marcela with leverage. Tiffany challenged Marcela to a trios rematch next week, and Marcela accepted.
2) Ephesto, Mephisto, Niebla Roja b Delta, Stuka Jr., Valiente
Rudos took 1/3. In the third, Stuka pinned Ephesto, but the rudos beat Stuka, and then Mephisto defeated Delta for the win.
3) Ángel de Oro, La Sombra, Titán b Namajague, Shigeo Okumura, Taichi *
Tecnicos took 1/3, Sombra beating Taichi in the third fall.
4) Puma King b Rey Cometa [mask] * *
Seconds were Tiger & Espiritu Negro. Rey Cometa dived off the stage on Puma with a tornillo before the bell. Puma still pulled out the fall with a leg hold in 1:16. Cometa went into the barricade again in the second fall, but came back to win with the 450 splash in 4:26. Rey Cometa is Mario Alberto González, 29 years old, 13 years a wrestler, from Quereraro. Both gave each other credit for their effort after the match, and Puma thanked the vary supportive crowd.
5) Dragón Rojo Jr., Negro Casas, Último Guerrero b Atlantis, Mistico, Prince Devitt *
Rudos took 1/3, Dragon Rojo beatting Devitt each time and setting up a title match between the two.
6) Rush b Terrible [hair] * *
Seconds were Toro Blanco for Rush and Rey Bucanero and Comandante for Terrible. Terrible won the first and Rush took the second in usual quick falls. Both bled were said to have bleed; Rush did so from the mouth, and Terrible's wound is not visible in the pictures (maybe a slight bit on his forehead.) Much less than Volador/Niebla. Rush finally won with the martillo negro. Fans sided with Terrible even after the match, upsetting Rush. Mistico, out to celebrate, settled down his brother, but the entire family was pelted with drinks until they left. Terrible was also sent to the back to calm down the crowd, but returned to get his hair cut (doing some himself) and thanked the fans. In the locker room, Rush said he didn't care about the boos and they just made him stronger, while Terrible said he didn't lose tonight, but just won more fans and it's not over with Rush.
Event Notes: WON and SuperLuchas reported less than 8,000 paid, with 11.5k in the building at the end (doors opened after teh first couple matches.) CMLL later claimed 12K attendance, did not specify if it was that much paid.
