Sombra wins but Felino gets the better of the fight (again), lineups

CMLL (FRI) 03/26 Arena Mexico [SuperLuchas, ESTO, Cesar]
1) Puma King & Tiger Kid b Bengala & Robin
2) Astral, Bracito de Oro, Eléctrico b Pequeño Violencia, Pequeño Warrior, Pierrothito
3) Metro, Sagrado, Valiente b Dragon Rojo Jr., Misterioso II, Sangre Azteca
4) Toscano b Ephesto [lightning]
5) Taichi, Terrible, Texano Jr. b Blue Panther, Brazo de Plata, Héctor Garza
6) La Sombra, Shocker, Volador Jr. DQ Felino, Negro Casas, Último Guerrero

Rudos took first fall, tecnicos took the second fall, Felino fouled Sombra in the third. Fans are still behind Felino; if this is going to pay off for Sombra, it’s not going to be until after years of mentioning it. It’s not helping him now.

Blue Panther replaced Maximo. Garza did not get along with Brazo de Plata.

Bracito de Oro got the pin on Mini Warrior.

Sangre Azteca still wants his Mexcian Trios rematch. Fuego also has a bio on Asesino Negro.

El Signo says he’s retiring on May 1st. Is this the 2nd or 3rd time?

Proyeccion Luchistica is back with audio commentary on IWRG handhelds.

R de Rudo has 1 2 3 4 5 posts about the first day of a mask expo. DJ Spectro has photos as well.


CMLL (TUE) 03/30 Arena Mexico
1) Metatrón & Tormenta vs Camorra & Oro Negro
2) Astral, Bam Bam, Pequeño Olímpico vs Pequeño Damian 666, Pequeño Universo 2000, Pequeño Violencia
3) Ángel Azteca, Ángel de Oro, Ángel de Plata vs Arkangel de la Muerte, Euforia, Nosferatu
4) Metro, Stuka Jr., Valiente vs Dragon Rojo Jr., Misterioso II, Sangre Azteca
5) Máscara Dorada, Shocker, Toscano vs Atlantis, Felino, Rey Bucanero

All three Mexican Trios champions on the same show! Not in the same match, don’t get crazy. (Appears they’re actually building up to the match Sangre wants here.) Oro Negro is a name from Ciudad Madero. I think the masked name Dhani Jones wanted to use was Black Gold, but I’m thinking this is not him. There’s a Tormenta in Veracruz, but there’s also another one who’s turned up in Arena San Juan and AULL.

CMLL (FRI) 04/02 Arena Mexico
1) Horus & Metálico vs Disturbio & Durango Kid
2) Bracito de Oro, Eléctrico, Mascarita Dorada vs Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Warrior, Pierrothito
3) Fuego vs Pólvora [lightning]
4) Blue Panther, Rush, Sagrado vs Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto
5) Héctor Garza, Hijo del Fantasma, La Máscara vs Taichi, Terrible, Texano Jr.
6) Brazo de Plata, La Sombra, Volador Jr. vs Felino, Místico, Negro Casas

Obviously, the big news here is Mascarita Dorada being on the card. There’s a 45% chance this is a fake lineup, with the minis match being switched to a Bracito de Oro & Pequeno Warrior and the other minis being removed from the card.

Why it would be a fake lineup: That match is going to occur at some point, CMLL just uses random wrestler names when they’re going to change the card (Atomo was used once when he was long gone). Not only is Dorada’s participation eye raising, this would be Horus’ first Friday Arena Mexico match of the year.

Why it would be a real lineup: do you really need to throw out a fake lineup to hide  Bracito de Oro vs Pequeno Warrior mask match for a couple days? No, no you do not.

More of the same in the main event. Will Garza’s recent dissatisfaction with both Maximo & Porky extend to his trios partner La Mascara?

CMLL (SUN) 04/04 Arena Coliseo
1) Astro Boy & Sensei vs Artillero & Súper Comando
2) Dalis la Caribeña, Lady Apache, Marcela vs Amapola, La Seductora, Princesa Blanca
3) Ángel de Oro, Ángel de Plata, Fabián el Gitano vs Dr. X, Euforia, Pólvora
4) Máscara Dorada, Metro, Toscano vs Misterioso II, Shigeo Okumura, Virus
5) Blue Panther, Brazo de Plata, Shocker vs Negro Casas, Rey Bucanero, Último Guerrero

Future big star La Seductora has a match! Not a good sign that she’s matched up with Dalis. I’m just thrilled Fabian is on Fox for once.

Cesar has his thoughts on the lineups as well.
