IWRG (SUN) 06/14 Arena Naucalpan [the gladiatores]
1) Comando Negro b Fly Star
2) Exodia & Goleador b Azoka & Osiris
3) Avisman, Black Thunder, Tetsuya Bushi b Freelance, Suicida, Turbo
4) Arlequin, Arlequin Rojo, Arlequin Verde b Pendulo, Trauma I, Trauma II
5) Mascara Ano 2000 Jr., Ricky Cruzz, Veneno b Angelico, Oficial 911, Zatura
Oficial 911 replaced Negro Navarro for whatever reason, and surprisingly didn’t just turn on his teammates. Rudos took the first, tecnicos took the second but Zatura hurt himself on the dive. Rudos destroyed the two remaining tecnicos, Mascara bloodying 911 while the other two beat Angelico. Oficial AK47 made the post match save, and various Jr. Dinamiatas/Oficials matches were proposed.
In the semimian, Arlequin (Yellow, the original) snuck in a foul on Trauma II for the final win. Freelance and Turbo didn’t get along their whole match. Suicida tried to keep it together, but they lost the first and then fell apart in the second. Freelance was with the rudos post match, making up with old friend/rival Avisman. Comando Negro swept the opener.

CMLL (TUE) 06/16 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [Fuego en el Ring, MT]
3) Rey Trueno b Palacio Negro
4) Gallo & Metatron DQ Mascara Magica & Satanico
5) Dark Angel, Lady Apache, Zeuxis b Amapola, Princesa Blanca, Princesa Sujei
6) Atlantis & Mephisto b Hector Garza & Maximo
Atlantis replaced Dos here. Tecnicas won their match in two falls so, naturally, Princesa Blanca gets a title shot next week.
People mentioning Dos Jr. to WWE: ESTO (also Wagner), Fuego en el Ring (who says their were rumors as much the last couple of days when Dos didn’t show), Cesar (who says this prove Dos is a superstar, and is also looking forward to a Dos vs Hart Foundation or Koslov match) and Luchando Libre Record is the only one working off a new interview; everyone else seems to be using the SuperLuchas story or old interviews (and some of those Dos quotes in Record may be old, because they’re similar to the one Fuego pulls from an old interview.)
Where there’s chaos, there’s opportunity: if CMLL can no longer do Dos vs Shocker at anniversary, Ultimo Guerrero would be more than happy to take Dos’ place in that match and settle his rivalry with Shocker once and for all. Shocker sounds up for it too. They’ll be surely be having a title match in a few weeks, which may help determine things.
Texano Jr. figures he’ll not only be the underdog in skills tomorrow, but the crowd will also be against him and for Ultimo Guerrero. The tail end of the article mentions the current plan for the Universal title is to defend it once a year (so it’s another Leyenda de Plata, only for champs?)
Electroshock insists the Legion losing at TripleMania was just a small stumble, and they’ll be back on top soon.
Rene Guajardo Jr. is out eight weeks with a foot injury.
Lucha and boxing promoters in Sinola are complaining about the local taxes. They have to pay 3,500 to rent the building, plus 8% of the total revenue (and also paint the building.) That came to 11,000 last time ($818.84US), in addition to the free tickets given to the city council, who they’re hoping will lower those fees a bit.
The Viva La Lucha magazine series, which had the bad timing to debut during the flu, gets a write up in ESTO today.
Blue Demon Jr & Incognito are scheduled to appear a free outdoor show in Toronto on July 18 and 19th.
Ultimo Dragoncito is said to be working next weekend’s lucha va voom show.
Starting Saturday, an art gallery in Austin, Texas has is exhibiting a mask collection and other art work.
Over on mySpace, SeanOfTheDead writes about going to Tuesday’s Arena Mexico show and his favorite wrestler, Maximo.

PERROS (SAT) 06/20 Coliseo Olimpico de Universidad de Guadalajara [La WagnerMania]
1) Intocable, Olimpico, Super Porky vs Cibernetico, Head Hunter I, Super Crazy
2) Dr. Wagner Jr. vs el Hijo del Perro Aguayo
CMLL’s running their anniversary show here on Sunday, so the Perros have slightly dodged them for once. Of course, only hearing about this show two days prior does not sound promising. Also, scheduling Dr. Wagner for a show the same night he’s supposed to be main eventing an AAA TV taping on the other side of the country, probably not going to work out too well.
CMLL (TUE) 06/23 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [Fuego en el Ring]
1) Novato vs Relampago
2) Idolo vs Rafaga
3) Palacio Negro vs Saturno
4) Casanova vs Asesino Negro
5) Mascara Magica & Satanico vs Metal Blanco & Neutron
6) Lady Apache vs Princesa Blanca [MEX WOMEN]
7) Blue Panther, Toscano, Volador Jr. vs Naito, Shigeo Okumura, Yujiro
Okumura finally gets to team with No Limit. I’m thinking no title change.
