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.

  1. I’m curious about that AAA taping on the 30th. Could be a fun one if the crew going to Costa Rica won’t be back in time. They may have to use some guys who normally don’t get used for TV. It’s not a full crew going to Costa Rica so they could still have plenty of stars to headline with and the undercard could be a treat…

    … or they can just do five matches – three of them singles.:P

    “CMLL (TUE) 06/23 Arena Mexico”

    Another decent enough C3 lineup. The main event isn’t a revancha though. just left the ‘revancha’ tag on from this past week’s match. Fabian seems to be in for the still injured Angel De Plata. Can’t wait to see what new move Dorada will bust out and of course… CALIGULA, MESSALA AND HOOLIGAN! WHAT A TRIO!

    “IWRG (THU) 06/25 Arena Naucalpan

    3) Chico Che, Exodia, Rigo vs Capitan Muerte, Fantasma de la Opera, Judas el Traidor”

    Are Exodia and Rigo new clowns?

    “4) Negro Navarro, Trauma I, Trauma II vs Black Terry, Dr. Cerebro, Hijo de Pierroth (IWRG)”

    Good to see Navarro and Terry back but why is it at the expense of missing Turbo, Freelance and Avisman’s feud?

    “CMLL (FRI) 06/26 Arena Mexico”

    Much better looking than last week. Two out of the top three could make for fun TV. Glad to see they’re sticking with the Lightning Matches although they should find some sort of TV outlet for them. Maybe they’re taping them for filler before their next non-televised show? FSE/52MX are booked solid but you could easiy squeeze in a Lightning Match on the normal Saturday show. Of course then we wouldn’t have the constant question of the week and CMLL INFORMA segments.

    “CMLL (SUN) 06/28 Arena Coliseo”

    Even though they had a TV skit to introduce Pequeno Nitro – they couldn’t have him debut in the segunda here? Seems weird to introduce a guy and then not book him but then again this is CMLL we’re talking about. AWESOME LOOKING tercera which should get a sneak preview if CatchChannel uploads 52MX this week.

    So here’s a question – did Dr. X succeed with his second interview complaining to the magazines? Lately he’s gotten some terceras (instead of segundas), he’s in the GDL semi-main and seems to be getting more bookings overall. Twice is a charm?

  2. Almost forgot this…

    “IWRG (SUN) 06/28 Arena Naucalpan

    4) Black Thunder vs Freelance, Turbo, Bushi, Avisman, Suicida [cage, mask, hair]”

    Bushi would be the favorite if anyone who follows Puroresu could tell us when he’s expected back in Japan. Since we don’t know I won’t take him and I’ll go with Suicida losing his hair and resuming the Aeroman gimmick.

  3. @Anonymous: And he brought the Bizarros with him! *L* I guess that takes another 4 spots away from TV lineups. Sorry Laredo Kid, Aero Star, Poder Del Norte and Oriental.

    ElMartinete has pictures of a building far from sold out. Reporter says 70% full. Pictures back it up.

  4. Has anyone uploaded the show that Estrellita is on today on SKY 501? I have not heard much about it, but based on the title I’ll assume it’s like Tercera Caida or Ras de Lona?

  5. ESTO has Metalico in for Pegasso on Sunday’s Coliseo show. Wonder if Pegasso hurt himself in Puebla on Monday night…

  6. ESTO had Metalico in that spot on Monday when I checked the updated lineups before the Puebla show.
