9) AAA Mega-Heavyweight Title Triple Threrat: Electroshock def. El Mesias (c) and Mr. Anderson to win the title!
* NOTES *
– Tons of stuff going on here so get ready!
– Tiger successfully defended his Cruiserweight Title for the 2nd time and yet again the match became a Hardcore Match. They should just call that damn belt the Extreme Title or Hardcore Title.
– The story going into the WagnerManiacos match was if Pimpinela’s team won then he would earn a spot in the group. Pimpi paid off los Hermandad Extreme for help and they got the clean win. Wagner still wasn’t cool with him joining their group though.
– Following the Lumberjack Match (which saw Cibernetico pin Konnan CLEAN) the Legion jumped Ciber once again. El Mesias ran out to help Ciber but then a man in a hood and black coat ran out and attacked Mesias and Ciber. Hernandez and Koslov joined in on the rudo beating and then the man removed his hood and mask revealing himself to be L.A. PARK! Yes, the original La Parka has returned to AAA! Dorian Roldan declared this the “Era of Dorian Roldan” and La Parka Jr. and Joaquin Roldan were not happy. Parka Jr. was ‘held back’ from going after Park. Park got on the mic and said that Konnan has brought him back to his rightful place in AAA and then La Parka Jr. thanked Konnan and Dorian for bringing Park back so he could unmask him. This is great stuff, I just hope (maybe wishful thinking on my part) that this goes through the ORIGINAL La Parka can unmask the (horrible) ‘newer’ La Parka.
– In the Main Event Latin Lover shockingly (that’s sarcasm you sense) didn’t show up. Electro pinned Mr. Anderson clean in the ring while Mesias was laid out on the outside to win the title and become the 6th champion in the belts history. Mesias drops it on his first official defense.
– In the Rey de Reyes Final Hernandez and Marco got into it big time. Marco even pinned Hernandez but then Hernandez came in and jumped Marco allowing Chessman to get the win.
– After the Main Event La Wagnermaniacs came out and circled Electro as if they were going to attack him but then Wagner offered his hand to Electro. Electro shook it and Wagner raised Electro’s arm so they are back together again.

Incognito Added to FCW Roster
A few months after signed a developmental deal with the WWE Incognito has been added to the Florida Championship Wrestling roster page on their site. He is still wearing his usual mask but is going under the name “Hunico” which has absolutely no meaning that I can find. Sicodelico Jr. (Espiral) is also off of the roster page as he apparently was cut late last year (which I hadn’t heard about). Dos Caras Jr. (under the Alberto Banderas name) is still on the roster and is supposedly coming along pretty well in FCW. Orlando Colon is also a new signing for the FCW roster. Colon is the cousin of WWE stars Primo & Carlito Colon and he will go under the Tito Nieves name in FCW.
