Lucha Libre St. Paul, MN 5/19/2007

From the St. Paul National Guard Armory De la Riva presented Mejoada Y Recargada La Mejor Lucha Libre. To be honest I have no idea what that all means but this was the second card that De La Riva promoted at the St. Paul armory. This is the same building that ROH has used the 3 times they were in St. Paul. This promotion had a very nice entrance way as they had a long ramp and a light system. They also had ring ladies just like the bigger promotions in Mexico use to walk the luchadors to the ring. All the ring announcing was done in Spanish and they did some commentating during the matches as well. I don't speak Spanish so I had no idea what was going on most of the time.
The opening contest saw Lover Kid lose to Rojo Guerrero.
In tag team action (actually the rest of the matches were tag team.)Black Boy & Black Panter beat La Maquina Infernal & Lorenzo Conners.
I guess this next match was an inter gender match as two of the luchadors were men dressed as women. The team of Cinthia Moreno & Casandro beat Rosy Moreno & Rubi Gardenia. One of the males, Rubi who is in the black and red on the mat, would go out to the crowd to kiss the male fans, that's if he could catch them.
Next up was the minis match as La Parkita & Mascarita Sagrada beat Mini Abismo Negro & Espectrito. Both Sagrada and Negro were unmasked in this match but they did a good job of covering up their face.
Super Astro & Solar beat El Arcangel & Pantera.
The main event of the night was former WWE superstar Super Porky & Rey Mysterio Sr & Universo 2000 VS Apost0l 13 & Renegado & Mano Negra. Apostol 13 and Renegado are local guys. Super Porky got the win as he did a splash on all three members of the other team.
