The 10th edition of the Triplemanía event, held at Centro de Convenciones in Cd. Madero, Tamaulipas, on July 5th, 2002 saw 4 wrestlers reach a milestone in their careers as Pro Wrestlers.
Four of the most recognized wrestling characters created by AAA founder, Antonio Peña, faced each other: On the side of the “Técnicos”, wrestling idol Octagón, alongside yet another elegant and spectacular character created by the mind of Antonio Peña, Máscara Sagrada, awaited their respective nemesis, Pentagón (although this was the 3rd wrestler to wear the mantle) and Máscara Maligna. This was a special “Suicide” tag team match, where one wrestler and their respective nemesis had to team up, and then, the losing team members would have to fight each other, on a Mask Vs. mask final match. In the end, Octagón faced his longtime rival and defeated him, thus forcing him to remove his mask and reveal his name: Ricardo Moreno Antonio, born on Patrona, Veracruz.
On yet another surprising match, wrestling team Los Diabólicos (Mr. Cóndor, Angel Mortal, Gallego and El Apache) fought against Los Vipers, on a caged match, where their respective masks and scalps were put on the line. In the end, and surprisingly, wrestler Maniaco was the loser, thus, he had to remove his mask AND had to be shaved bald.
On another match, wrestlers El Hijo del Perro Aguayo, El Zorro and Mr. Aguila defeated rivals El Dandy, Héctor Garza and Pirata Morgan.
The match held shortly before was a very peculiar one, as the wrestler who’d become Dark Espíritu was about to face his future “family”, but this time still as member of Los Vatos Locos. Thus, Espíritu, Nygma, El Picudo, and Silver Cat faced against the Black Family (Chessman, Dark Cuervo, Scoria and Dark Ozz), where the former emerged victorious.
As if there hadn’t been enough surprises and emotions during the night, referee El Tirantes was shaved bald again, this time after wrestler Sangre Chicana lost a bet match against Heavy Metal, El Oriental, El Brazo, May Flowers and Electroshock.
The first match of that night saw wrestling rising star Dos Caras Jr. team up with Esther Moreno, Pimpinela Escarlata and Mascarita Sagrada in order to fight against rivals Sexy Piscis, Shoot Fighting, Mini Abismo Negro and Tiffany on a “Relevos Atómicos de Locura” match.
