Everything is coming up Star Jr.! Just two weeks after winning the 2019 Gran Alternativa with Valiente, Star Jr. has added another big victory to his resume by winning tonight’s Rey del Inframundo Cibernetico, outlasting the likes of Audaz, Rey Cometa, Polvora and Dulce Gardenia before submitting Virus to get the W. He will now move on to Friday’s Super Viernes, where he will take on Dinamitas member Sansón for the Rey del Inframundo Championship, a title defended every year during CMLL’s Dia De Muertos shows.
Not only is tonight’s victory another accomplishment for Star Jr. but it reaffirms his push after a few days of uncertainty. Despite his big victory in the Gran Alternativa, some fans were concerned after his semi-main event appearance this past Friday yielded underwhelming results thanks to a poorly laid out match and an unmotivated performance by Último Guerrero, who was matched up with Star Jr. most of the match. Instead CMLL seems to still be full speed ahead with Star Jr.’s push after tonight, as he will now get easily the biggest singles opportunity of his career against an incredibly talented and capable rudo in Sansón in what could be a low key MOTYC for CMLL.
CMLL’s Dia De Muertos edition of Super Viernes will take place this Friday in Arena Mexico and is (as of now) scheduled to stream live on Marca Claro starting at 10:30 p.m. EST (the show is moved back an hour due to daylights savings time). Lucha Central will provide full coverage of the show.
