IWRG (THU) 06/25 Arena Naucalpan [SuperLuchas #321]
1) Guizmo b Fly Star
2) Galactik & Goleador b Epidemia & Heavy Boy
3) Chico Che, Exodia, Rigo b Capitan Muerte, Fantasma de la Opera, Judas el Traidor
4) Black Terry, Dr. Cerebro, Hijo de Pierroth (IWRG) b Negro Navarro, Trauma I, Trauma II
5) Fuerza Guerrera, Juventud Guerrera, Ricky Cruzz DQ Angelico, Bobby Lee Jr., Negro Navarro

Dr. Cerebro was watching the main event, but he and Juvi got into a fight and Cerebro ran in for the DQ. Busy night for Dr. Cerebro, since he also pinned Trauma II and asked for a title match.

SuperLuchas #321 also has an interview with Nitro, who got an office job with CMLL while he was out. Besides helping with training, he’s also working in publicity. HEY NITRO, PUT THE SPOT SHOW LINEUPS ON YOUR WEBSITE. Thank you. Also, Mini Nitro makes more sense all the sudden. Nitro hopes to be back in the ring. on August 1st.

Blue Panther worked the Arena Coliseo show (and won!), so I guess he’s fine or they just did an injury angle for no particular reason.

Mistico wants another shot at Negro’s CMLL Welterweight championship. In another article, Pesta Negra pointed out that he’s got to beat Negro to get it, not Niebla as Friday. links: says Psycho Circus will be on the Queretaro taping, reveals Mini Charly Manson will return soon, wonders if Cibernetico will form another faction or if this is the start of Wagner brothers teaming a lot in AAA. In Record, Mesias confirms Cibernetico is his mystery partner on Tuesday.

AAA show as a local campaign rally. I guess Elegido is an appeal to female voters. One more week of this!

WrestlingObserver has their AAA recap. Forget all the spots, Fabi Apache trying to give Gato Eveready relationship advice was the craziest thing on that show.

Box Y Lucha #2928 has Cibernetico returning to AAA. Inside, Faraon says there is no more Hijo de Faraon. A little late on that one.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.


UWE (WED) 07/01 Arena Lopes Mateos
1) Brazo de Plata, Mil Mascaras, Villano III vs Brazo de Oro, Dos Caras Sr., Villano IV
2) Cachorro Mendoza, Mascara Ano 2000, Pirata Morgan vs Hombre Bala, Ringo Mendoza, Universo 2000

This is the UWE legends show that I’ve been steadfastly ignoring for the last month. To be fair, all but about 700 people will continue to ignore it. To be fair (to me), this lineup seems to have already changed – Lizmark’s retirement match is MIA. With the two matches that are announced, the losing trios will meet in a cage match with the loser losing their hair or mask, or at least that’s the plan of the moment.

Seriously, are people who are into nostalgia shows like this in it for weird relevos incredible lineups? I’d think they’d just want to see their favorite teams face their favorite rivals one more time, and pretend that they’re still seeming them when they were good. Maybe they’re run these shows enough that someone feels like they need to do something new, or maybe it won’t make a difference because the people who are going are going regardless.

IWRG (THU) 07/02 Arena Naucalpan
1) Mascara Magnifica vs King Drako
2) Exodia & Galactik vs Azoka & Carta Brava Jr.
3) Chico Che, Jack, Rigo vs Fantasma de la Opera, Ghost Rider, Tetsuya Bushi
4) Megatronik, Trauma I, Trauma II vs Fuerza Guerrera, Ricky Cruzz, Veneno
5) Juventud Guerrera vs Dr. Cerebro [hair]

Megatronik is a new name. Need to go lock some profiles.

IWRG (SUN) 07/05 Arena Naucalpan
1) Fly Star vs Radamantis
2) Guizmo & Halcon 2000 vs Carta Brava Jr. & Vampiro Metalico
3) Chico Che, Jack, Rigo vs Arlequin Rojo, Arlequin Verde, Capitan Muerte
4) Ricky Cruzz, Tetsuya Bushi, Veneno vs El Alebrije, Megatronik, Negro Navarro
5) ??? vs ? [mask, hair]

Main event probably spins out of tonight’s cage match.

CMLL (SUN) 07/05 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Bengala & Principe Valiente vs Camorra & Cholo
2) Astro Boy, Metalico, Starman vs Inquisidor, Polvora, Semental
3) Fabian el Gitano, Flash, Mictlan vs Bronco, Hooligan, Loco Max
4) Hijo del Fantasma, La Sombra, Volador Jr. vs Naito, Shigeo Okumura, Yujiro

It amazes me, with all the things CMLL doesn’t do, they do things like sending Camorra & Cholo to Guadalajara. Going to make no difference to the attendance, going to make them no money unless they company is paying for a plane flight (and then the company is not making money on it), and it’s just one extra match they could have locally. Eh.

CMLL (SUN) 07/05 Arena Coliseo
1) As Jr. & Trueno vs Puma King & Tiger Kid
2) Dark Angel, Estrella Magica, Marcela vs Mima Shimoda, Princesa Blanca, Yezca
3) Electrico, Mascarita Dorada, Shockercito vs Pequeño Damian 666, Pequeño Universo 2000, Pequeño Warrior
4) Ephesto, Misterioso II, Virus vs Sagrado, Stuka Jr., Valiente
5) Blue Panther, Shocker, Toscano vs Heavy Metal, Lizmark Jr., Ultimo Guerrero

Minis to TV?

10 thoughts to “Blue Panther OK, Puebla, IWRG, lineups”

  1. Puebla opener was changed to Starman, Asturiano, and Hijo de Ultraman vs Centella de Oro, Espiritu Maligno and Sauron. Also, Pegasso, Flash, and Stuka won the tercera by DQ when Arkangel pulled Stuka’s mask off (and kicked him low for good measure).

  2. Now that I’ve actually gone and locked the pages, I think I’m free to make jokes.

    ways Dr. Cerebro would manage not lose his hair on Thursday
    1) Dr. Cerebro no-shows (or is hurt)
    2) Juvi no-shows (or is hurt) AND they actually decide to put Cerebro over the replacement to keep people happy (iffy)
    3) Dr. Cerebro loses his hair on some random show on Wednesday AND commission actually prevents him from losing it back to back days (iffy)
    4) people remember Pig Flu still exists – and is now a pandemic – and freak out
    5) Home planet forces Juvi to return immediately (more likely than WWE asking the same)
    6) AAA brings back Juvi, yet again. (Actually possible, though unlikely.)


    Dr. Cerebro is not going to win, that’s impossible. Even if Juvi got hurt in the match, they’d pull a Sangre Chicana/Laredo Kid and Dr. Cerebro would get shaved. IWRG deciding to no longer book their regular crew as jobbers to stars who are only gone after a couple months is never going to happen. That’s all I got.

  3. @thecubsfan: There’s always a chance I screwed up the teams (still learning all the locals in Puebla), but I think I got them right. Seems like the shifting was done just to fit Ultraman in, so I would imagine it was just a one week thing.

    They seem unlikely to keep Ultraman in the local matches, but the Ultraman/Starman team seems too logical for even CMLL to pass up.

  4. @Alan: I hope Starman doesn’t read the blog or he may be crying on the inside after that comment.

    Always sucks to be part of a company for almost 15 years and have fans forget you exist.:P

  5. @Rob: I did feel bad about it until I looked at the luchadb and realized that he had only been on tv a handful of times in the last year and a half, so I’ve probably seen him a few times, and those were likely in Puebla.
