Rey Mysterio, who is still under contract to WWE, appeared via video at the end of the Triplemania iPPV that aired tonight. While wearing a sombrero, Mysterio said he wanted to celebrate AAA's anniversary and told the fans he would see them soon. The video faded out and a graphic that read "#FREEREY" then played. Mysterio is still under contract to WWE until the spring of 2015, according to one source. He and the company have been at odds for some time over his contract.

Alberto Del Rio opened the show cutting an anti-WWE promo and saying he had to deal with racism in the company before going into an angle where he and his father, Dos Caras, were interrupted by a group of heels who they then ran off. The "Alberto Del Rio" name (in a graphic) and theme music were both used.

Jeff Jarrett missed the show because of a travel day from hell. His flight from Nashville to Dallas was diverted due to storms and then flights to Mexico were canceled, preventing him from making it to the event. Jarrett noted on Twitter that it was the first time he had missed a booking due to weather.

King Ricochet also missed the show. As I noted in my House of Glory live report Saturday evening, he worked three matches en route to winning the tournament and then rushed to JFK airport (30 minutes from the venue) to catch a red eye flight to Mexico. Ricochet missed his flight by "five minutes" according to his Twitter, stranding him in NYC until he heads home and causing him to miss out on a pretty nice payday.

We'll have complete results on the show ASAP.
