06/21 Arena Naucalapan Results

Forgot this part. Need to do smaller posts anyway…

IWRG (SUN) 06/21 Arena Naucalpan [Gladiatores]
1) RadamantisSangre Latina
2) Exodia & GalactikComando Gama & Comando Negro
3) Chico Che, Goleador, Rigo DQ Black Terry, Dr. Cerebro, Judas el Traidor
4) Freelance, Suicida, TurboAvisman, Black Thunder, Tetsuya Bushi
5) Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Tinieblas Jr.Mascara Ano 2000 Jr., Ricky Cruzz, Veneno

Tineblas pinned Ricky Cruzz in the main, I don’t know why. You would’ve think they would’ve saved that for someone who’s going to be around more than Tinieblas.

New greatest line: “the semifinal may well have been a feast for the famous ficional character created by Bram Stocker: Draclua”. Doens’t actually look exceptionally bloody, though Freelance tried to bleed enough for everyone. Turbo and Freelance continue to not get along, but Suicida still ended up beating Bushi for the win. They still seemed to be setting up a direct hair mask or a title match here, instead of the six way cage match they’re going to end up doing.

Title match in Puebla, new (doomed) promotion, Box y Lucha

I don’t like the odds of my Puebla guess being right this week; ESTO says Volador & Sombra defend the tag titles versus Negro Casas & Felino.

Fuerza, Juvi, and Juan Israel Gonzalez announced the formation of the Super X GPCW. Pick your choice of stories: ESTO, Luchando Libre, SuperLuchas.

Gonzalez is clearly the man putting up the money, and so this will go as long as he’s willing to keep giving it away. They plan on using the same wrestlers who are all of the other mid-range groups (Perros, IWRG, EAW); you know, all the promotions that aren’t already drawing. Plus, they plan in wasting more money bringing in people from the US – Chris Masters, Rob Van Dam, Rikishi, and Mr. Kennedy – for a Mexico vs the US show. All those besides Kennedy are NWE regulars, so I guess we’ve learned Kennedy is going to Europe. In a interview with the Gladiatores, Juvi also mentions Austin Aries and Sabu. There’s also a mention of a women’s division called Chicas Super X modeled after the WWE, the same concept women wrestlers in Mexico have derided for many years. Hooray! Being a new promotion in Mexico, they did not mention the date or location of any show they plan to run. Do these groups make money on press conferences? Do they think they make money on press confrences? Just to make it a full convention of people with bad ideas, el Fantasma showed up as well.

Box Y Lucha articles
Dos Caras Jr. is heading to WWE. Not sure if you heard.
Grond XXX apparently had not, because he’s challenging for a mask/mask match based on Dos wearing red body paint. The original Gronda talks about going to AAA or CMLL. There was talk about him going to AAA to feud with the second Gronda in a mask match, but was canceled when the first got sick. They haven’t used the second on TV since, so I don’t know if they still care. Speaking of Original Gronda’s illness, he’s claiming a miraculous recovery thanks to prayer and credits his own skills as a nutritionalist to get him back in top condition. He’s 2-3 months from returning to the ring.
Ultimo Guerrero is happy with winning the universal tournament and is going ot adopt light blue as his big match color, since it’s worked out well this year (this match, and the victory over Villano V.)
– interview with Diosa de Oro, a trainee of Vicky Carranza & Cinthia Moreno.
Mascara Dorada, Angel de Oro, Horus and Metro visted a children’s rehabilitation center
Villano III tells stories abotu Cesar Valentino

Cesar makes the case that, with the departures, CMLL pretty much has the exact same roster it had 3-4 years ago.

The Gladiatores also have interviews with new champ of Trauma II, retired wrestler Dick Angelo and Rain & Dyanamite Girl of EAW. Plus, lots of photos of the Rey Misterio Sr. benefit show.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update

Skaxy seems to change sides once a month. That is the most interesting part of this card.
