6) Dos Caras Jr., Terrible, Texano Jr. vs Hector Garza, La Sombra, Shocker
Previews: SuperLuchas, ESTO, Ovaciones.
Ovaciones says we’re supposed to call the main event rudos DTT, which stands for Doble Tormenta de Terror (and also their initials.) It’s nice Terrible and Texano get to be in a group (oh wait, they already had one.) I also have no idea why three men are a double.
Dragon Rojo and Mictlan had a mask match last year, but this time are limited to 10 minutes. The opener is exactly the same one they did on Sunday, FWIW.
IWRG (SUN) 04/19 Arena Naucalpan [The Gladiatores]

2) Chico del Barrio & Vampiro Metalico b Daga & Eterno

5) Head Hunter I, Mascara Ano 2000 Jr., Negro Navarro DQ Angelico, El Alebrije, Super Porky
Top 3 all DQs, what a sight. Main event ended in DQ when Porky accidently hit a ref while trying to get at Head Hunter. Porky & Head Hunter and Alebrije & Mascara Ano 2000 Jr. paired off to make singles match challenges. Veneno fouled an Oficial. A Gemelo fouled a Trauma for a straight fall loss.
IWRG (THU) 04/23 Arena Naucalpan [Proyeccion Luchistica]

2) Bobby Lee Jr., Freelance, Multifacetico b Arlequin, Bushi, Kushida
3) Negro Navarro, Trauma I, Trauma II b Black Terry, Cerebro Negro, Dr. Cerebro
4) El Alebrije, Fuerza Guerrera, Olimpico b Hijo del Cien Caras, Mascara Ano 2000, Veneno
Navarros asked for and will receive a title shot after their win. Pirata Morgan got involved in the main event, unsuccessfully. PY also has an YouTube interview with Alebrije and Pirata about being out of AAA.
Lucha Va Voom is in San Fran tonight. Mondo Lucha is in Milwaukee tomorrow (and seems to have gotten good coverage.)
In Chicago this Sunday, there are dueling Lucha Libre shows on Sunday.
– Congress Theatre with Santo, Hijo del Solitario, Pirata Morgan and Mascara Sagrada
– El Ray Ballroom (3504 S. Western, Chicago, IL), with Olimpico, Rayman, La Park and Atlantis
Both start at about the same time, for about the same much. Why they’re running against each other, I dunno. GALLI’s also running an outdoor show this Saturday in Lombard, though the poster doesn’t appear to be on the website. I think I may just take a nap thru it all.
Zorro visited ESTO’s offices, saying that he’s reached a good part of his career but will have to be even better with guys like Wagner and Marco in AAA. Zorro’s looking forward to the new challenges they present (and does not sound like a guy looking to leave at all.) Zorro also feels like Juvi should’ve handled his issues with AAA internally rather than go to the press.
(Refoma via Jazzo) Mascara Ano 2000 is soliciting donations to pay Cesar Curiel’s medical bills. He either has diabates or cancer, but he needs help. Interestingly, MA2K has ruled out doing a benefit show, because so little of the money makes it to the person in need. This did seem to be the case for Kato’s. He’s going to the commission instead, which isn’t much more help. His other idea is a home for old wrestlers, but that sounds a long way from happening.
Mascara Purpura is supposed to work Tuesday’s Arena Coliseo Monterrey show. That’s the locals show, not the AAA weekly one, but it’d still be very odd to see a CMLL guy there. Unless he’s not? Or maybe he’s just getting some ring time coming back from injury?
LuchandoLibre notes Los Perros will have an easy oppurtintiy to respond to AAA’s last parody, because both groups are scheduled to work the Sunday Lucha Libre Expo show.
DTU links to YouTube video of it’s last show. I hope Roberto’s getting paid for his work.
LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.

3) Cyberman, Ministro, Super Camaleon vs Angel Mortal, Inquisidor, Sakura

This is way too novato to actually be real. It is a free show, which would partially explain it.
PERROS (FRI) 05/08 Guadalajara [SuperLuchas]
1) Rabia & Ritual vs Kunami & Pesadilla
2) Celestial & Cosmico vs Mr. Aguilita & Pequeno Halloween
3) Histeria, Psicosis, X-Fly vs Damian 666, Halloween, Mr. Aguila [ladder]
4) Intocable, Olimpico, Super Porky vs Cibernetico, Head Hunter I, Super Crazy
5) Dr. Wagner Jr. vs el Hijo del Perro Aguayo
SuperLuchas notes that last year, Record did it’s show with CMLL. CMLL hasn’t announced a special show in ACG for this date, but that’s just got to be a matter of time. I presume this is at the University (as all major non-CMLL GDL shows seem to be).
