Before the Night of Champions, CMLL is full steam ahead for the 89th Anniversary show on September 16. That show is CMLL’s biggest of the year. The main event is a rival partners tag team eliminator with the winners battling in mask versus mask or hair versus hair as appropriate.

Unfortunately, one of the participants was removed due to injury. Templario was pulled after damaging his shoulder last week. The luchador will need surgery and be out of action for 5 to 6 weeks. The injury can be seen in the following highlight package (at 3:49) when Templario was on the receiving end of an inverted superplex from Ultimo Guerrero.

In Templario’s place will be Dragon Rojo Jr. The masked man volunteered, and CMLL made it official.

The CMLL 89th Anniversary card currently stands with:

  • Tag Team eliminator with Mask vs. Mask or Hair vs. Hair finale for winners: Atlantis & Fuerza Guerrera vs. Averno & Ultimo Guerrero vs. Atlantis Jr. & Stuka Jr. vs. Soberano Jr. & Dragon Rojo Jr.
  • Mask vs. Mask: La Jarochita vs. Reyna Isis
  • La Copa Independencia finale
  • Negro Casas, Titan, & Star Jr. vs. Hechicero, Euforia, & Mephisto
  • Mexican National Trios Championship: Dulce Gardenia, Espiritu Negro, & Rey Cometa (c) vs. Guerrero Maya Jr., Stigma, & Arkalis
