Ovaciones has a link towards a lucha article, but it instead is about Lorena Ochoa. I presume it’s supposed to be a Coliseo preview (the picture of Atlantis and tease of championships was my clue, thanks.) Rey’s going to retain or has retained by the time you read this, you know.
Accion – no narration? Huh.
CMLL: highlights from the tag title match. We get the first fall rudo wins, dives by teh tecnicos, tecnicos winning the second fall – and that’s it. No AAA highlights.
DeporTV America CMLL highlights, all from 07/17 Coliseo
1) this week, opening match highlights. Romans are doing the a slingshot into a fireman’s carry powerbomb followed by a top rope splash combo. Caligula has a bow and arrow variation for a submission
2) Onto the segunda, with a Neutron top rope headscissors and dive tease (as Nitro runs far up the aisle.) Highlights of Loco arguing with the referee, thanks for that. Super Nova gets a top rope ‘rana on Arkangel and a Asai Moonsault onto Quebrada. Neutron dropkicks Arkangel out, and follows with a nice tope con giro. Nitro gets a slow two count on Stuka with a powerslam, then rolls thru a ‘rana to get another 2 count. Stuka finally get a bodyscissors cradle to win the match.
3) Valiente and Virus work together, and it is good. Some Valiente highlights before Mictlan and Valiente wrap up the fall. They give you the impression the tecnicos won this match, but
4) Even highlights of the hair triangle match. We get some of the same highspots – Damian’s dive thru the ropes and middle roep front suplex on Halloween to eliminate him, but of course that’s got to air. Bam Bam’s tornillo, tapatia for a near double fall, and then same sequence from the cibernetico to finish Halloween. We see Halloween get shaved, and the rudos jumping Bam Bam.
5) No main event highlights.
This should turn up on their website on Monday or Tuesday, and I’ll link to it then.
(Chikarafans.com) Sicodelico Jr. did lose to Claudio Castignoli on Saturday night in the quarterfinals of the NWA World Heavyweight Tournament. Combined with his (and Incognito’s) loss in the tag team tournament, he’s 0-2 at world titles this month. (I bet Dos Jr. calls him and taunts him about it.) There was a good interview with Sicodelico Jr. in last week’s Super Luchas, about being a guy who represents Mexico around the world despite not really wrestling in Mexico.
Super Luchas has an update on Turbo. While doing a moonsault, his right leg collided with a chair, and he fractured his shin in the process. He hopes to be out only three months.
Other Dragon Gate results (via DGUSA)
07/21: Jorge Rivera b Akira Towaza
07/22: Jorge Rivera b Yasushi Kanda
ex-Skayde gets a shot at DG’s Brave Gate title next month; he’s staying in Japan a bit (though Black Thunder and Pentagon Black seem to be gone and obviously Turbo is headed home.)
As I understand it, what aired in Mexico this weekend was:
07/15 Coliseo: Amapola, Medussa, Rosa Negra b India Sioux, Luna Magica, Marcela
07/20 Mexico: Blue Panther, Dos Caras Jr., Volador Jr. b DamiÃ¡n 666, HÃ©ctor Garza, Terrible
07/20 Mexico: MÃstico & Negro Casas b Dr. Wagner Jr. & Ãšltimo Guerrero [CMLL TAG]
07/15: Head Hunter I, Rikishi, Ron Killings, Sabu b La Parka Jr., Latin Lover, the Animal, Zorro
(that’s it – was everything but the opener hyped for next week?)
FSE doesn’t come on here for another 1.5 hours, but I suspect it’ll follow Mexico’s lead and be a rerun. I’ll update this when I see it.
