Other Notes

The main event at Verano De Escandalo 1997 continued the feud that had been building for a few months between the Aguayos & Heavy Metal against Picudo, Sangre Chicana & Cobarde. On this night Cobarde was the ultimate loser and got what little hair he had shaved off. Out of embarassment he began wearing a blonde wig on future TV tapings. This feud would continue on with Picudo ultimately losing his hair at Guerra De Titanes and finally Chicana losing his hair at Rey De Reyes '98.

However, the big news from this show occured in the semi-main event. Canek & Cibernetico had been feuding for weeks leading up to this show. Cibernetico always seemed to have the upper-hand as his recently created stable called Los Vipers (Histeria, Maniaco, Mosco De La Merced, Abismo Negro) would interfere in matches and attack Canek. The cage match was signed with the stipulation that no Vipers members could interfere on Cibernetico's behalf. Canek dominated the match and had Cibernetico beaten and bloody. Suddenly Cibernetico began to motion for someone to come out and help him but nobody came out from the back. The camera scanned the crowd and caught Psicosis standing on an elevated platform watching the match. This was strange because Psicosis had left AAA over a year ago and it was a very public bitter split. After watching for a few minutes Psicosis ran down the aisle and jumped into the cage to attack Canek causing the match to become a no-contest. The angle caused huge controversy in the weeks following as it was revealed Antonio Pena had stuck Tijuana local wrestler Leon Negro under the Psicosis outfit and was going to try to pass him off as the real Psicosis.

Two of the undercard matches on the show had angles that went nowhere. In the trios match with Octagon, a mystery man in black showed up to attack Octagon. The man would appear in the crowd on future AAA TV tapings but it was never revealed who he was (the actual person under the mask was the ex-Black Demon). The other angle occured in the opener as Al Capone and Frank Nitti turned on their partner Goyo but that ended up being one of the last appearence of Los Hampones in AAA so that storyline was dropped.
