That's a AAA logo. Noticed it too in the Flamita match with Aeroboy.

AAA used to run the building regularly so that explains the logo.

I might be on an island but I absolutely loved the main event on that show. Going in my high end tier of matches this year. Flamita's discus forearm is such a great strike. The Flamita/Dorada interactions were so great... such an awesome tease for Saturday's upcoming match.

Xtreme Tiger v. Volador Jr from last weeks Elite show was really good. Working my way through last weeks CMLL over the next day or so.

I'm not sure that I'm quite as high as you on it, but we're probably not far off and part of that is probably me simply wanting more and having trouble thinking about anything but the upcoming CaraLucha Saturday match.

It doesn't take a genius to figure out that these four will have a great match together, but the timing couldn't have been better. CaraLucha's videographer used clips of this match in the hype video for the Flamita/Dorada singles match. The match also reprises the great Místico/Volador rivalry of years past and also a bit of Flamita/Volador (incidentally, Flamita's last singles match against a CMLL guy) from last year.

Flamita/Caristico vs. Dorada/Volador was really, really good. There were some spots that made me cringe, but I really did think this was great. Four stars from me. Flamita is just too good.

He definitely is. When it comes to spot shows in Mexico you always have to go in expecting the worst since so many smaller places the ring sucks or the ropes suck or guys just aren't gonna work hard depending on how awful the local promoter was to them but this match luckily didn't have any of that.

I'll just leave this here since we're talking Flamita... I'm not gonna throw the guy or company under the bus for now but a certain someone affiliated with a well known US indy was approached about using Flamita recently and said he didn't know if Flamita could succeed in a non-Lucha environment & doubt he'd be able to adapt. Luckily there are promoters out there much smarter than this guy. :)

Still Top 10 match of the decade. IMO. I love Averno and find him the most underrated luchador of 21st century. He could've filled Perrito's spot in AAA but nah, let's keep him with Chessman. They don't even use him to put over their young(er) tecnicos, a match or two with Averno would do wonders for Fenix and Aerostar in Mexico.

Finally had a chance to catch up on some of last weekend

Lucha Elite from 05/20 was another enjoyable hour of wrestling. Enjoyed the Caristico v. Ultimo Guerrero main while it lasted, the weekly de-masking spots are getting really old though. I think Rob Viper had mentioned something about that a week or two ago as well

Flamita/Caristico v. Mascara Dorada/Volador Jr - Such a great match. Four stars +
