Viva la Raza!: Lucha Weekly
April 19, 2014
By: Josh Boutwell of Wrestleview.com
Over the past week rumors in the Lucha Libre circles have started to swirl over the possibility of Averno jumping to AAA this weekend. We’ve heard rumors like this many times so it’s nothing new but the rumors also think that Sin Cara/Mistico will be finally officially debuting for AAA this weekend as well. Mistico and Averno are real life close friends and restarting that feud in AAA would be big for them. CMLL still lists Averno on several lineups for next week but we should know for sure by Sunday morning whether any of this comes to fruition.
Konnan Leaks Spoilers
This past weekend on the MLW Podcast Konnan actually ended up revealing several matches that he claims AAA is building towards. One is Fabi Apache vs. Ivelisse for the Reina de Reinas Title and another is a Mask vs. Mask Match between Pentagon Jr. and Australian Suicide. He also said they will start building toward Chessman vs. Alan Stone in a Hair vs. Hair Match and a Mask vs. Mask Match between Aerostar and Super Fly which could be an amazing match.

Winner & STILL Cruiserweight Champ: Daga via pinfall
(Really good match with nonstop action from beginning to end. Usually these elimination matches in AAA tend to have ridiculous pinfall breakups, but there were none here. Argenis was frustrated as usual botching spot after spot but everyone else was crisp and on the money. Daga looked super strong by eliminating every opponent in the match despite the interference from his valet. Just think how great it could have been if Fenix, Pentagon Jr., or Aerostar were in the match instead of Argenis. ****)
