Winners: Bane, Divino & Astrolux after Bane took out Arez with a Standing Spanish Fly counter, he quickly positioned Arez and went to the top, flying off with a 630 to pick up the win. (Crazy ass moves in this one. Aramis is so legit. Really fun spot fest, everyone got their spot to shine and came through. Built to where the big Dive sequence really meant something at the end, and boy did they come through with crazy aerial acrobatics. RECOMMENDED!)

Viallano went after Mami, only to end up in the corner, getting Chopped, Mami positioned Villano and went to the middle, hitting the Vader Bomb, as Hamburgesa was checking on Maravilla, Nino went to the cover, only for Maravilla to Low Blow Nino and use a School Boy, which Referee El Hijo de Tirantes counted the 3. (Good stuff. Australian is so damn gnarly, creative and HIGH FLYING. Good flow from all of these folks, the finish was great, playing into a LONG story.)

Konnan comes out and cuts a HEEL PROMO on being the reason that Triple A is where they are, he says he is going to make history tonight. Konnan talks about honoring the past legends.

Great video package honoring Perro Aguayo.

The honor Silver King, bringing out his family and inducting him into the Hall of Fame.

Brava caught Vikingo’s Frankensteiner and scored with a Butterfly Backbreaker. Vikingo got the advantage back and used a Running Death Valley Driver into the corner to set up the Inverted 450 Splash and the cover. (Good stuff.
