By: Xavier Hernandez
Show aired on: 05/02/2009
Summary of last week's show: Aerostar declared his love towards Fabi Apache, but Billy interrupted them. Corleone made his debut with La Parka, and they defeated the Legion by DQ. Manson led his team to victory, by making Zorro submit. The Cruiserweight Championship tournament started with a Dome of Death match, where Billy was eliminated, and members of the same faction will face each other. For this show (Yes, with a steel ramp connected to the ring, just to please Corleone), another epic six-man tag, Parka meets Silver one-on-one, and the Cruiserweight Tournament continues.
*In-Ring Segment: Konnan gets a mic, to insult the crowd as usual. He salutes Arturo Rivera, and addresses Marisela Pena, saying her tactic to ruin Konnan's reputation will not work. Konnan also talks about Corleone, who he knows from WCW, and claims he will make Corleone bleed like never before. Konnan finally gives Dr. Wagner Jr. one last week to accept his invitation to the Legion. If he doesn't answer by then, then Konnan will assume Wagner joined the AAArmy, and will destroy him.
*Pretaped Segment: Fabi Apache says she will embarrass Sexy Star in her own hometown, and she will make Billy respect her once and for all. Aerostar also addresses Billy, and says he's going after his hair, words courtesy of the best high flyier in the company. On the other hand, Sexy hates Fabi even more because of what she did to Billy. The man also talks, and says he always respected Fabi, but now she lost prestige by abandoning him. Billy is also pissed off because the Fabi and Aero crushed his dreams of becoming the Cruiserweight champion.

5) Silver King vs. La Parka
-Only Fall: Complete brawl that I will not bother covering every move. Pure heavy strikes by both men, and blood comes out of their foreheads. Both men abandon the ring, to continue their battle inthe crowd, and even on the streets. The referee calls off the match and declares a draw.
-Aftermath: On the street, the Hermandad arrive to help Silver. The Hermandad hold Parka, and Silver smashes a large lightbulb on his forehead. The match is literally a Street Fight, as Silver continues his massacre on Parka, and the people on the streets enjoy the free spectacle. Both men return to the arena, with the Hermandad, but Corleone and Aerostar arrive to help Parka.
*Pretaped Segment: Backstage, Manson and Mesias talk one more time. Mesias says he's tired of the crybaby named Chessman, and tells him to act like a man. Mesias still can't belive after all the things he's done to him. Mesias also addresses Wagner, and says Mesias makes the rules in his own territory, whether he likes it or not. Manson is now going after Zorro, and also tells Scoria they won't become his stepping ladder to stardom. A video plays, focusing on Zorro, and his gimmick of a Psicopath Prophet.
6) Mesias, Vampiro & Charlie Manson vs. Chessman, Zorro & Dark Scoria
-Only Fall: We're back to the usual TV main event tag matches. Legion starts with the triple team ambush, but this time they use the steel ramp as a weapon. Mesias makes the comeback with a Spear on Scoria. Zorro uses the kendo stick to attack the tecnicos. Chessman capitalizes to pin Vampiro with a Spinebuster.
Winners: Chessman, Zorro & Dark Scoria
-Aftermath: The Legion arrives to attack the tecnicos. Corleone arrives to help the tecnicos, and YES, Corleone uses his Suicide Crossbody, running from the steel ramp to the ring. That's the real purpose of the steel ramp.
FINAL COMMENTS: Overall, a regular show. The Cruiserweight matches were very good, specially the Harts match. Aerostar proves one more time why he is the most underrated wrestler in the company. Seeing a steel ramp connected to the ring, really made me think AAA was running a show in Arena Mexico. I just find it so amusing that they added the steel ramp, so Marco Corleone could use his trademark move correctly. Believe me, I really find no other reason for the ramp. And yes, Black Abyss is still around.
