Next Week’s Lineups

Change of plans. I’ll save the links for tomorrow, which will probably be a lot of links, and just do lineups right now. Blame the Cubs for keeping me out in the heat for 4.5 hours.

CMLL (TUE) 06/23 Arena Mexico
1) Rayo Tapatio I & Rayo Tapatio II vs Carrona & Semental
2) Guerrero Maya Jr., Hijo de Ultraman, Starman vs Caligula, Hooligan, Méssala
3) Angel Azteca Jr., Angel de Oro, Fabian el Gitano vs Arkangel de la Muerte, Dr. X, Vangelis
4) Mascara Dorada, Mictlan, Sagrado vs Heavy Metal, Misterioso II, Virus
5) Hijo del Fantasma, La Mascara, La Sombra vs Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto

Looks like, instead of an actual semimain, they’re getting two segundas. I guess it is Tuesday.

IWRG (THU) 06/25 Arena Naucalpan
1) Guizmo vs Fly Star
2) Galactik & Goleador vs Epidemia & Heavy Boy
3) Chico Che, Exodia, Rigo vs Capitan Muerte, Fantasma de la Opera, Judas el Traidor
4) Negro Navarro, Trauma I, Trauma II vs Black Terry, Dr. Cerebro, Hijo de Pierroth (IWRG)
5) Angelico, Bobby Lee Jr., Olimpico vs Fuerza Guerrera, Juventud Guerrera, Ricky Cruzz

CMLL (FRI) 06/26 Arena Mexico
1) Astro Boy & Molotov vs Artillero & Zayco
2) Dark Angel, Lady Apache, Lluvia vs Amapola, Princesa Blanca, Princesa Sujei
3) Ultimo Dragoncito vs Pierrothito [lightning]
4) Maximo, Stuka Jr., Valiente vs Dragon Rojo Jr., Sangre Azteca, Shigeo Okumura
5) Blue Panther, Hector Garza, Toscano vs Ray Mendoza Jr., Tetsuya Naito, Yujiro
6) La Sombra, Mistico, Volador Jr. vs Felino, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas

Main event is a rematch from this week. For the rumors of Felino/Mistico, they still seem to be booking Negro/Mistico. Long time till September.

Looks like notVillano V got the call to pick up Dos’ bookings. That’s about a fair replacement. He’s been gone from Arena Mexico since May 8th.

Hope Ultimo Dragoncito doesn’t kill himself on an Asai moonsault this time.

Lady Apache could be Mexican Women’s champ by this time.

CMLL (SUN) 06/28 Arena Mexico
1) Hijo del Fantasma, La Mascara, Shocker vs Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto

A noon show, a special attraction to a concert. Still, don’t understand why they’d do two shows, even at this low level of participation.

CMLL (SUN) 06/28 Arena Coliseo
1) Sensei & Trueno vs Camorra & Cholo
2) Bracito de Oro, Fantasy, Shockercito vs Pequeño Damian 666, Pequeño Violencia, Pequeño Warrior
3) Flash, Pegasso, Rey Cometa vs Euforia, Nosferatu, Virus
4) Mascara Dorada, Mictlan, Valiente vs Dragon Rojo Jr., Misterioso II, Sangre Azteca
5) Blue Panther, Shocker, Toscano vs Naito, Ray Mendoza Jr., Yujiro

Shocker stays in Mexico City to work the normal show. Sure hope they don’t start teasing a Shocker/Mendoza feud.

CMLL (SUN) 06/28 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Astaroth & Hierro vs Acertijo & Angel del Mal
2) Palacio Negro & Virgo vs Azazel & Rafaga
3) Magnum & Metatron vs Mr. Trueno & Rey Trueno
4) Casanova, Metro, Stuka Jr. vs Dr. X, Satanico, Skandalo
5) Hijo del Fantasma, La Mascara, Mistico vs Felino, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas

Meanwhile, La Mascara and Hijo del Fantasma have to fly all the way out here for a 5:45 bell time. They’ve got more time than that till the main event, but they’re going to be hurrying. Wonder why they didn’t just use Volador & Sombra on one of these shows instead.

IWRG (SUN) 06/28 Arena Naucalpan
1) Chico Che & Rigo vs Carta Brava & Vampiro Metalico
2) Trauma I & Trauma II vs Capitan Muerte & Ghost Rider
3) Bobby Lee Jr., Oficial 911, Oficial AK47 vs Fantasma de la Opera, Mascara Ano 2000 Jr., Sauron
4) Black Thunder vs Freelance, Turbo, Bushi, Avisman, Suicida [cage, mask, hair]

No Freelance/Turbo match after all, at leat not yet. While the IWRG core guys are always strong suspects in a match like this, Tetsuya Bushi still has that mask that he’s probably not taking back to Japan with him. Oficials appear to be operating as tecnicos.

Meanwhile, AAA says their next tapings – following the one tonight – are Tuesday June 30th in Cuautitlan (which they’d mentioned previously), and Friday July 3rd in Queretaro (which they hadn’t.) In between now and then, they’re running a tour of Costa Rica from the 27 to the 29th, so these guys are busy. There will be some tired people on that June 30th show.

UG is Universal Champion, rest of Friday results

CMLL (FRI) 06/19 Arena Mexico [Dr. Lucha, Ovaciones, superluchas, ESTO]
1) Bengala & Sensei b Inquisidor & Semental
2) Flash, Pegasso, Rey Cometa b Arkangel de la Muerte, Hooligan, Skandalo
3) Dark Angel b Princesa Sujei [lightning]
4) Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto b La Mascara, Maximo, Sagrado
5) Hector Garza, Mistico, Volador Jr. DQ Felino, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas
6) Ultimo Guerrero b Texano Jr. [CMLL Universal, final]

Main event went about 16 minutes, with most of that being in the final fall as usual. UG got Texano clean with the Guerrero Special for the win. Usual mask/hair challenges after. Box Y Lucha has a photo of Ultimo with the belt.

Mistico jumped Pesta Negra to start their match and the tecnicos took fall one. Rudos came back to take fall two. Volador & Garza diced onto Felino & Niebla at the end of the third, and Negro yanked Mistico’s mask for the DQ.

Like the Amapola/Marcela match, Dark Angel & Princesa Sujei ended very close to the time limit.

May have the segunda wrong. Seen it both ways.

Mr. 105
Mr. 105

The book “Iris Wildthyme and the Celestial Omnibus” includes a short story called “Iris Wildthyme y Señor Cientocinco contra los Monstruos del Fiesta” – see the picture over there. He’s Mr. 105 because it takes place back at during the Mexico City Olympics in 1968. That does sound like someone would’ve either teamed with or fought at Matematico.

Gotta be elsewhere, so lineups and more sometime this evening, I think.
