[Pre-Show Notes]Met Daniel Silver of schramm marketing corp who provided press id! Also VERY much enjoyed press box seating area!
[Show]Mascarita Sagrada/Chris Dickinson over Dave The Clown/Demus(7/10 first impressions) Elgin/Callihan/Josh Alexander over Faby Apache/Murder Clown/Drago(7/10 big mike machines) [cruiserweight title contender]Daga over Puma King/Aerostar/Flamita(7/10 golden pumas) [Reina De Reinas Title]Taya Valkyrie over Tessa Blanchard(7/10 so-nice-she-did-it-twice!) [Tag Title]Lucha Brothers over LAX(8/10 red hot rocking rematches) Brian Cage/Psycho Clown/Cain Velasquez over Rey Escorpion/Taurus/Texano Jr(6/10 colorful cage clashes) [Mask/DQ]Rey Wagner Jr over Blue Demon Jr(6/10 wild reversals)
[Mexican Magnum Opus]The main icing on this historic special occasion cake was that for first time in 17 years my gimmick represented OFFICIAL press!!(thanks again to pwinsider.com mike johnson for advice. As always a credit to our profession) Melissa Santos radiated magnetic class on ring intros while Matt Striker helped with english commentary. Sagrada was underdog card standout who reminded me of also realizing card standout story of first chikara show a decade ago! Apache honored family legacy so well between see-saw dance with callihan & earning large pop from roughly 1/2 the crowd. Daga(recently signed pt impact contract)earned title shot over a game king,flamita & reyes champ star.(whose multi-light mask was another show standout) Valkyrie complimented her KO title win over blanchard(january)becoming a 2X champ over same star who won strap in her first TLC bout!(seeing both mothers seated together added extra sentimentality) HOG/AAA champs fenix/pentagon reinforced best-tag-team-in-the-world status while santana/ortiz proved(by multiple belts last 2/12 years)that there's NO belt they can't earn! Escorpion reminded me of a dark colored lucha version of chikara's prolotariot boar while psycho deserved all around best costume award! Consider it an extra inspiring & equally confusing miracle how wagner(who lost mask AND retired)could somehow win AFTER REMOVING HIS OWN MASK!? Dedicating this to Antonio/Marisola Pena as well as former booker Jauquin Roldan. Grade B+
