Mexico results, GDL cancelation notes, Mother’s Day Lineup changed

CMLL (FRI) 05/08 Arena Mexico [Ovaciones, SuperLuchas, ESTO]

6) Blue PantherLa MascaraMisticoFelinoMr. NieblaNegro Casas

ESTO puts the turnout as just over 2000, a low low turnout (though more than they seem to do for a lot of Tuesday and Sunday shows.) Record has some pictures which show the ‘no one can sit next to another’ order was pretty much ignored. The article also mentions they had everyone come down to ringside so it’d look a little less awful on TV.

Earlier, I asked why La Mascara was in the main event. Turns out, it was to set up a title match. He got Negro clean with la campana and challenges were exchange for the welterweight championship, though we may be a couple weeks away from that.

I’m not exactly sure what the finish was in the semimain – I’ve seen Shocker yanking Dos’ mask for a pin and Dos getting himself DQed against Shocker. Either way, seems like the feud has switched from Dos/Hector to to Dos/Shocker.

Misterioso doesn’t get to go to Japan, but he gets to beat Metro in a bonus match! (Poor Misterioso.)

As mentioned last night, Arena Coliseo Guadalajara is staying off for two more weeks due to flu deaths in the area. Apolo Dantes says they’re canceling all shows up to and including the Tuesday May 19th show. First show back would be May 24th. Refunds are being handed out for the Friday show, which Dantes says was planned to be taped. All the wrestlers found out about the show being canceled as they were making their way there, and had to turn around and go home. SuperLuchas says Record’s show will be on June 20th, so that’s when last night’s CMLL show will be rescheduled.

Tommorrow’s show has had a some wrestlers bolted on to make up for no GDL show.

Match 4 and 6 are the new ones. I don’t think I’ve seen CMLL have seven matches before when it’s not been a tournament or something. This will clearly change what airs next weekend – no chance of the minis or women.

The Kid’s Day show has been rescheduled to “sometime this summer”

Given a couple weeks off to think about things, Averno has decided he now wants a triangle apuesta match with Mistico & Negro Casas at the Anniversary show. That’s what too much time off does to your mind. Averno would welcome Dos Jr. into Hijo del Avernos if he wants to join, but he’s not going to force anyone to join.

WWE has announced new lineups for it’s Mexico tour at the end of the month, which would confirm it’s still on. Wrestling is also on in Torreon this weekend.

Vampiro’s two latest DVDs were released in Canada. Mil Mascaras is filming a movie in Columbia, Missouri, which includes a giant explosion.

  1. Over on ByL someone said Angel De Oro vs Skandalo aired which we’ve never seen before (thankfully in the opinion of some – not me).

    I was hoping Mascarita Dorada/Pequeno Warrior would make TV finally along with Metalico vs Hooligan and unedited versions of Stuka Jr./Euforia and Angel Azteca Jr./Puma King.

  2. I switched over at some point during the game and saw Hooligan. Can’t say for certain it was from that match, but hopefully it will this will show up in total. Do they reair at any point during the week now that IWRG has the Monday slot?

  3. There is a repeat on Monday but I don’t know when. The website doesn’t have listings for this week or last week or else I could tell you. I think it’s Monday morning at some point.

  4. Quick search of the Box y Lucha forum turns up this…

    “un forero comento previamente que estas luchas las repiten los Lunes a las 6pm,”

    Not sure if that is Mexico City time though. If it helps – they also say it airs right before RAW so if you know when RAW is, it’d be 2 hours before that.:)

  5. Also, the guy who posted the news on what is airing over on ByL is the guy who puts a lot of stuff online so if he caught it I’m sure it will turn up soon enough.

    No Dorada/Pequeno Warrior.:(

  6. I think the airing before Raw was replaced when IWRG returned to TVC Deportes. That would have been at 5:30 pm Mexico City Time. There is a listing for Lucha Libre at that time tomorrow, so maybe since there is not new IWRG to air they will repeat this?

  7. IWRG is airing a repeat (I believe 3/26), so the lightning match special may be lost to the world. I’ll have to keep an eye out in case it turns up on DVD at the next show I go to.
