Chapter 2 of Triplemania XXX is in the house. Atangana!

AAA’s big shows are always a wild time. Triplemania XXX Chapter 2 should be no different when it hits the airwaves at 10 pm ET on June 18 from Tijuana. The latest surprise was out of their hands, but it has created a buzz of curiosity. The main event was supposed to be the Hardys versus Los Hermanos Lee. Jeff Hardy was pulled out of the show after a DUI arrest, and his replacement has yet to be revealed. AAA wants to fill that spot with someone of equal satisfaction for the fans. Time will tell.

The Ruleta de la Muerte tournament rages on with the semifinals involving Psycho Clown, Villano IV, Blue Demon Jr., and Pentagon Jr. The losers advance to the ultimate mask vs. mask final at Triplemania XXX Chapter 3 in Mexico City on October 15. On the women’s side, the Ruleta de la Muerte spins for seven luchadoras in a cage match. The final two remaining will compete in mask vs. mask on this same evening.

Also of note, Fenix has a chance to win two championships.

Triplemania XXX Chapter 2 is available for viewing through Fite TV. Join us for all the details, including winners, losers, and surprises.

Results:

Women’s Ruleta de la Muerte cage match qualifier: Chik Tormenta and Flammer were final two luchadoras remaining and will advance to mask versus mask. The field also included Lady Shani, La Hiedra, Reina Dorada, Sexy Star, and Maravilla. Physical contest with hardcore foreign objects. Reina Dorada climbed to the top of the cage. Instead of escaping, she leaped for a flying crossbody onto the pile below. Reina Dorada climbed to the top of the cage again as the first to escape. Referee El Hijo del Triantes prevented Lady Shani from climbing by pulling her down off the cage. Sexy Star was second to exit. Lady Shani was third. Las Toxicas triple-teamed Chik Tormenta. Flammer tried to escape, but the other Toxicas pulled her back down. Tormenta cleaned house with a light tube and used a shard of glass to jab into foreheads of the Toxicas. Hiedra and Maravilla were both straddling the top of the cage throwing blows at each other. Hiedra clubbed Maravilla down to become the fourth escapee. Maravilla powerbombed Flammer into a wooden board. Maravilla was the fifth to escape. Tormenta and Flammer were left to duke it out in mask versus mask later in the show.

The military marching band played a tune and unfurled the huge Mexican flag for the opening ceremony. Jets flew overhead.

Rey Xolo entered the ring accompanied by cheerleaders, Xoloitzcuintle dogs, and the Tijuana Xolos baseball team mascot.

Fireworks popped to officially open the main show. Hijo del Vikingo and Laredo Kid carried the Peña family flags for a moment of remembrance.

The Los Angeles Rams cheerleaders danced a routine to AC/DC’s Back in Black and a T.N.T. remix.

Copa Triplemania XXX-II: Niño Hamburguesa was the winner. Royal Rumble style with eliminations via pinfall, submission, and over the top rope. Marty Elias was the referee. Order of entrants was Mr. Iguana, Abismo Negro Jr., Mecha Wolf, Dulce Canela, Niño Hamburguesa, Vampiro, Bestia 666, Rey Xolo, Heavy Metal, Charly Manson, Mamba, Pagano, and Cibernetico. Rey Horus and Damian 666 had a surprise appearance running in to beat up Vampiro.

The final four came down to Pagano, Cibernetico, Niño Hamburguesa, and Mamba. Rivals Pagano and Cibernetico were hung over the top rope on a hip toss. Niño Hamburguesa and Mamba ran over for a double elimination on the superstars. Pagano and Cibernetico continued fighting on the outside and backstage. Inside the ring, Niño Hamurguesa lowered his shoulder for a back body drop sending Mamba onto the apron. A punch knocked Mamba crashing to the floor. Victory belonged to Niño Hamburguesa.

The order of elimination was Dulce Canela pinned by Mecha Wolf, Mecha Wolf kicked over the ropes by Vampiro, Vampiro pinned by Bestia 666, Heavy Metal tossed by Bestia 666, Bestia 666 eliminated off camera (maybe by Mamba?), Rey Xolo ousted with a kiss by Mamba, Abismo Negro Jr. pinned by Cibernetico, Charly Manson on a kissing roll-up by Mamba, Mr. Iguana tossed by a kiss from Mamba, Pagano and Cibernetico by Mamba and Niño Hamburguesa, then Mamba by Niño Hamburguesa to win.

AAA World Cruiserweight Championship & AAA Latin American Championship unification: Fenix becomes double champ defeating Laredo Kid, Taurus, Hijo del Vikingo, and Bandido in a five-way. Wild moves all match long by everyone. In the end, Vikingo landed a 630 senton on Taurus. 1, 2, Fenix flew in with a springboard frog splash onto the pile to break the pin. Fenix followed with a flying double stomp to pin Taurus for victory. Afterward, there was a staredown between Fenix and Megacampeon Vikingo.

Taya Valkyrie cut a promo in the ring. Even when she was working for other companies, the AAA fans were always in her heart. Taya was miffed at the disrespect from Deonna Purrazzo, so she went to take back the AAA Reina de Reinas Championship. Taya also teased a new group with Fenix and Pentagon. We’ll have to wait on that, but it will be worth it. Taya announced that the winner of the women’s mask versus mask match will earn a title shot. Taya’s last message was to call out AEW women’s champion Thunder Rosa. Thunder claims to be the best wrestler in Mexico, so come and prove it.

Ceremony to honor Konnan. Damian 666, Bestia 666, Mecha Wolf, Rey Horus, Taya Valkyrie, and Fenix joined him. Damian presented Konnan with a ceremonial plaque.

Ruleta de la Muerte semifinal: Blue Demon Jr. defeated Pentagon Jr. Badass finish for a surprising result. A table was setup in the ring. Blue Demon blocked a superplex, then grabbed his hammer to whack Penta in the rings. Blue Demon executed a super Mexican Destroyer through a table to win. The losing Pentagon advances to the mask vs. mask final at Triplemania XXX Chapter 3 in Mexico City on October 15.

Jeff Hardy’s replacement. Matt Hardy apologized for Jeff’s absence. He thought hard and came up with a solution to get another Hardy. Matt introduced Johnny Hardy (John Morrison) as his partner for the main event.

Another dance routine from the Rams cheerleaders.

Women’s Ruleta de la Muerte mask vs. mask: Flammer defeated Chik Tormenta. So much zany interference from husbands and teammates. Flammer’s husband took out Tormenta’s husband and the Vipers on a dive to the outside. That paved the way for Flammer to win unimpeded with a Death Valley Driver into a wooden board in the corner. Tormenta honored the mask clause to reveal her name and face.

Ruleta de la Muerte semifinal: Psycho Clown defeated Villano IV. Chaos with beer bottles, brooms, and thumbtacks. After a ref bump, Villano kicked Psycho in the cojones. Villano made the pin, but the referee was still out. Psycho picked up Villano for an Air Raid Crash onto the tacks for victory. The losing Villano advances to face Pentagon in mask vs. mask at Triplemania XXX Chapter 3 in Mexico City on October 15.

Dragon Lee & Dralistico defeated Matt Hardy & Johnny Hardy. Johnny often mimicked Jeff’s dance moves. In the end, Johnny turned on his Hardy brother. Matt was ready to delete Dralistico, but Draslitico countered to shove Matt into Johnny on the apron. Johnny took that personally, kicked Matt in the groin, and executed a corkscrew neckbreaker. Dralistico seized the moment for a double underhook facebreaker. Dragon Lee added his running knee finisher. When Dragon went for the pin, Dralistico inexplicably landed on the pile from a moonsault. That was miscommunication and not a swerve. Dralistico picked up the winning pin. Afterward, Matt planted Johnny with a Twist of Fate. Los Hermanos Lee paid respect to the legendary Hardy to close the show.
