Neither Shocker or Dos were pinned in their match – Mephisto and Averno got Panther and Mistico in the first fall, then the tecnicos returned the favor in the second and third.
Story of the night was the semimain. Rey Bucanero, not on the card, showed up early in the night to sit ringside (with two women.) Ephesto and his partners got into an argument with him, and ended up beating him up. This distracted them from their match and caused them to lose in straight falls, plus Rey was swearing revenge.
Possibly related, the outside the ring talks was about 3 second generation wrestlers who are headed into CMLL in the next few weeks. There are a trio of juniors that are kinda/sorta related to Bucanero who’d work as back up here, and filler for an anti-TripleMania cage match. (Maybe this ties in to DJ Spectro’s comment about something happening on June 3rd?) Of course, if you look at the lineups, it may be some things a little less exciting.
Mima Shimoda was out with Okumura for his match and helping the rudos, much to the commission’s annoyance. Didn’t help win.
Amapola snuck in the backcracker just before the time limit to win that match.
Mini tecnicos were said to look good. Shockercito pinned Damian with his feet on the ropes for the win, and they seem to be feuding.
Attendence was up from last week (it’d kinda have to be.)
Ovaciones note the passing of Polaris I (Jose Arguello Luna), a EMLL wrestle from the 70s and 80s. He was born in Perote, Veracruz, on January 25, 1946, and also wrestled under the names Pepe Luna and Dr. Macabro (where he lost his mask to Huracan Ramriez) during his 25 year career. He returned as Polaris in 1981, teaming with Los Bravos and Los Guerreros at times, and lost his mask to Climax II in Pista Arena Revolucion in May of 1986.
A bunch of articles from Record:
– Toscano is now three weeks out from returning, which would put him back just in time for the anti-TripleMania card. He’s going to be wrestling with a plate and six screws in one fibula.
– Shocker sees his feud with Dos Jr. as David versus Goliath and points out David’s strong record in those matchups.
– AAA is claiming they own the name Super Porky (which may be why he’s going under Elvis Porky lately.) Porky says he signed over the right to the name to Antonio Pena when he joined AAA, but only for the time he’d be with the company. Article says AAA is expected to announce a lawsuit in upcoming days.
AAA mentions the Mexician National Cruiserweight Championship, just to point out the new one is not connected (and to say the former champion Karis La Momia has disappeared into oblivion – we could be so lucky) and looks back at TripleMania IV (where Karis La Momia won a mask.)
Kcidis has a drawing of Sombra, and notes the similarity between Sombra, Oro and Diamante Negro’s mask design.

5) Atlantis, Rey Bucanero, Ultimo Guerrero vs Ephesto, Terrible, Texano Jr.
Bengala makes his debut, after being canceled due to the flu. Hijo del Sicodelico was mentioned as coming in a while back – he’s the guy working the California indies, not the one who just signed with WWE.
CMLL (FRI) 05/22 Arena Mexico
1) Principe Valiente & Trueno vs Ramstein & Semental
2) Dr. X, Hooligan, Skandalo vs Angel Azteca Jr., Angel de Oro, Angel de Plata
3) Pequeno Olimpico vs Pequeno Universo 2000 [lightning]
4) Hijo del Fantasma, La Mascara, Mascara Dorada vs Black Warrior, Dragon Rojo Jr., Sangre Azteca
5) Blue Panther, La Sombra, Volador Jr. vs Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto
6) Atlantis, Dos Caras Jr., Ultimo Guerrero vs Hector Garza, Mistico, Shocker
Principe Valiente is (or was) an Arena Queretaro. He sometimes wrestles as Principe Valiente Jr., so that’s one junior, Hijo de Sicodelico is another, and Bengala stands a good chance of being one of the Casas brother’s sons, so I guess they could be the three juniors.
While Bucanero does get a match on Tuesday, it’s interesting that he doesn’t have one on Friday to follow up the angle. Perhaps they’ll follow it up in a different way.
