05/26: Mexico results, lineups

Would you believe they finally totally turned Lizmark Jr. rudo? I guess it counts when he backstabs Mistico.

CMLL (FRI) 05/25 Arena Mexico [ovaciones, ESTO]
1) Brillante, Flash, Super Nova b Apocalipsis, Hooligan, Ramstein
2) Alex Koslov, Blue Panther, Negro Casas DQ Mephisto, Misterioso II, Sangre Azteca
3) Sagrado b Averno, Ephesto, Virus, Texano Jr., Leono, Loco Max, Valiente, Heavy Metal, Black Warrior [ciber, LdP]
4) Dr. Wagner Jr., Lizmark Jr., Místico DQ Héctor Garza, Mr. Águila, Terrible

Rudos won the first fall of the main event, tecnicos took the second. Much like with Black Warrior, Mistico actually hit Lizmark in the third, and Lizmark Jr. soon turned on him. Perro Jr. made an appearance and beating up Mistico with a katana (a wood one, but still – ??) and ripping up his mask. Lizmark Jr. is now a member of Los Perros del Mal. (Perro and Aguila’s team from the circus stunt show was also at the show, but they did not actually join in the beatdown.)

The whole Lizmark Jr. rudo turn is so odd. They’d take a couple steps in that direction, they’d forget about it for seemingly months, and then they’d move towards it again. CMLL teased this particular feud in late April on the GdR shows, but did nothing with it till last night and I had given up on it.

This gives CMLL a nice alternate plan for the big Summer Mistico match, if Perro can’t or doesn’t want to do the hair match quite yet. There was talk Lizmark Jr. could’ve lost his mask last summer (in a tag match with his father against Averno & Mephisto), so it’s not a stretch to imagine him losing it to Mistico this year.

As expected, Sagrado wins this block of Leyenda de Plata, and earns the right to lose to set up a Mistico match next week. First four out were Leono, Loco Max, Texano Jr., Valiente. Ephesto and Averno were in together, and ended up battling to a double DQ with mask ripping and fouls – something’s up here, but it’s not exactly clear. Black Warrior was eliminated by Virus, and Sagrado beat both Virus and Metal for the win.

Sangre ripped off Blue Panther’s mask in the segunda.

CMLL (TUE) 05/29 Arena Coliseo
1) Mini Olimpico & Ultimo Dragoncito vs Mini Damian 666 & Mini Halloween
2) Sensei, Stuka Jr., Tony Rivera vs Caligula, Hooligan, Messala
3) Felino, Mascara Purpura, Mictlan vs Euforia, Loco Max, Nosferatu
4) Heavy Metal, Maximo, Rey Bucanero vs Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto
5) Volador Jr. vs Ultimo Guerrero

I hope that main event eventually gets redone for TV.

CMLL (FRI) 06/01 Arena Mexico
1) Neutron, Stuka Jr., Super Nova vs Arkangel, Loco Max, Nitro
2) Leono, Mascara Purpura, Valiente vs Goto, Ohara, Okumura
3) Blue Panther, Lizmark Jr., Rey Bucanero vs Damian 666, Halloween, Terrible
4) Villano III, Villano IV, Villano V vs Atlantis, Olimpico, Sangre Azteca
5) Mr. Aguila vs Sagrado [LdP, sf]

If you didn’t yelp something negative when you saw the Villano names there, than you’re much better than I. Unless we’re going to find out this week that this is their last match as a unit ever, I’m not sure what they’re doing here.

Looks like the Metro stuff is done, at least with Neutron. Good that the pointless Lizmark turns again match is in the dead spot. In context, Mr. Aguila vs Sagrado main eventing Arena Mexico makes sense, but I don’t how they’re going to draw anyone to this show. Could’ve used a much stronger semimain, and I think the Villanos are close to being it.

CMLL (SUN) 06/03 Arena Coliseo
1) Rayo Tapatio I & Rayo Tapatio II vs Artillero & Zayco
2) Brillante, Trueno, Valiente vs Apocalipsis, Ramstein, Super Comando
3) Dark Angel, Diana La Cazadora, Lady Apache vs Amapola, Medusa, Princesa Sujei
4) Mascara Purpura, Maximo, Volador Jr. vs Satanico, Texano Jr., Virus
5) Blue Panther, Marco Corelone, Negro Casas vs Atlantis, Olimpico, Tarzan Boy

We know it’s one of those three semimian rudos feuding with Maximo, we just have no idea which one since they’re all there this week as well.

TV notes much later

  1. Scrolling through the cards, it was like a rollercoaster with the good & bad

    “shit”…”yaay”…”oh fuck”…”woohoo” :)

    Yeah, a very mixed bag.

    Gutted that for the 2nd time, a Volador dream match goes down but is not on TV. I suppose they may just be testing the waters
    for a full blown future TV feud, but that’s maybe just wishful thinking.

    Reading those words ‘Villanos’ was pretty grim too, made even worse by the fact they would appear to be coming in as tecnicos. Hopefully their stay lasts about as long as Demon and Rayo last month.

    And that tecnico trio is way too good to be curtain jerkers :(

    On the bright side, you can’t go wrong with a double helping of Valiente, with some Super Comando, Ramstein and Brillante thrown in for good measure. Maybe Purpura and Trueno too, but i’m still not convinced by either.

    Sagrado main eventing Arena Mex in a non-stip singles match can’t be a bad thing, and the Coliseo semi looks promising too.

    If only the Arena Mex opener and segunda, and Tuesday and Sunday main were switched, i’d be excited like a big kid for next weeks cards. As it is, i’ve saw worse, but there’s gonna be a lot of great stuff we’re missing.

  2. Btw, Lizmark in Los Perros is great. Most Perros matches are terrible to me anyway so it’s no big deal to see the odd match where he replaces Damien 666 or El Terrible – it’s not going to make too much difference to match quality

    At least now, he won’t be stinking the place up in a tecnico spot and dragging otherwise decent matches down.

  3. I like when results are corrected via TV shows. Turns out there was no Tigre Metalico last Sunday and he was replaced by Kid Tiger who is making his CMLL TV debut. Interesting. Can’t say I’m disapointed as Metalico as been awful lately.

    As for the cards…

    – Lizmark Jr. booked as a tecnico again is so stupid. There is no black and white with this turn. HE BEAT UP HIS PARTNERS, HE HELPED PIN THEM, HE CUT A PROMO ON THEM AND HE PUT THE PERROS SHIRT ON! But maybe he still wants to be a tencico…

    – Why does Mascara Purpura keep getting booked when he’s obviously injured?

    – For as good as that tecnico trio is in the Arena Mex opener, the rudo trio is just as awful.:/

    – Double dose of Valiente! YAY! I wonder who replaces Purpura. *fingers crossed for Stuka Jr. moved up*

    – I fear for how many fans will show up at Arena Mexico next week. The Villanos thing better be a one-time deal unless the two masked fat Villanos have agreed to come back and lose their masks to Averno/Mephisto in July.

    – I also fear for a Sagrado/Aguila main event. Sagrado has a reputation of choking big time when put in the spotlight and Aguila isn’t a rudo that can cover up a blown spot or two… or five. This has the makings of a total disaster.

    – Sunday’s show looks ‘eh’ aside from the segunda.

    – What happened to Negro Casas vs Black Warrior?
