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., MÃstico DQ HÃ©ctor Garza, Mr. Ãguila, 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.

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
