4) Mascarita Sagrada 2007 & Octagoncito ?? Mini Abismo Negro & Mini Amnesia
5) El Elegido, Gronda II, La Parka Jr. b Cuervo, Escoria, Ozz
Title change! If you care about the NWG Extreme championship, and if you can figure out why Relampago got the match instead of the announced challenger (Kempo Dragon.) Shryu did not actually bring the belt so who knows.
CMLL (FRI) 04/02 Arena Mexico [Ovaciones, Fuego en el Ring, Cesar, Alan]
1) Horus & Metálico b Disturbio & Durango Kid

6) Brazo de Plata, La Sombra, Volador Jr. b Felino, Místico, Negro Casas
Porky was wearing a Super Sky Team mask. Somewhere, Mascara Dorada sheds a tear.
Mistico did not get along with his teammates. So much so that when Volador got La Mistica on Mistico, Negro & Felino opted to let the tecnicos win and celebrate their loss rather than break it up. After the match, Mistico announced this whole rudo bit and feud with Volador was over, and he was going back to 100% tecnico. Volador disputed this, saying Mistico was a traitor and he would not accept Mistico back on the tecnico side or team with him. Neither the tecnicos or the rudos seem to want to do anything with Mistico right now, with the possible exception of Averno & friends.
Those guys were busy in the rest of the show. The CMLL Trios champs retained clean in the semimain, with no sign of a Garza turn. In the cuatro, Panther had Mephisto in the certain doom of the farmer’s roll, but Averno threw a beer in Blue Panther’s face, and Mephisto reversed into his own cradle for the win.
By all accounts, this was the return of the real Mascarita Dorada.
Is Fuego’s finish still called the Flashina? Not here, he used an armbar.
Atlantis is sick of Mistico switching between tecnico & rudo, because he’s misleading children.
SuperLuchas talks to Estrellita.
A poll on AAA’s site says fans prefer a La Parka/LA Park mask match over a name vs name battle. In this past week’s interview on F4Wonline, Dr. Lucha said AAA was expecting the poll to other way in hopes of making that the stip for TripleMania.
Cronicas Y Leyendas has Canek vs Ring Fujinami, with video.
Watching Ras de Lona while finishing this. Someone remembered they were supposed to push Sombra out of this mask match, so the episode is focused on an interview with him, as well as clips of a 2007 interview from the GdR shows (though not yet the bit where he randomly meets Negro Casas on the street.) Mascarita Dorada was on for a ten second clip where he said he was in Arena Mexico today, and who knows about tomorrow.
CMLL (TUE) 04/06 Arena Mexico
1) Camaleón & Robin vs Cholo & Mortiz
2) Eléctrico, Pequeño Olímpico, Último Dragoncito vs Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Warrior, Pierrothito
3) Delta, Fuego, Rush vs Cancerbero, Raziel, Virus
4) Máscara Dorada, Metro, Stuka Jr. vs Dragon Rojo Jr., Misterioso II, Sangre Azteca [MEX TRIOS]
5) La Sombra, Sagrado, Toscano vs Místico, Rey Bucanero, Último Guerrero
Ah, so they’ve decided – no Volador involved, Mistico is clearly a full time rudo. I’m glad that’s settled, and won’t change at all. (Really think they should’ve tried getting something out of Sagrado/Mistico earlier, wonder if they’ll do something here.)
They actually managed to get the entire trios champs together for a promo to hype up that title match. I was so happy. I fully expect them to continue to be the trios champs on Wednesday, and still not team up.
CMLL (FRI) 04/09 Arena Mexico
1) Astro Boy & Trueno vs Camorra & Inquisidor
2) Ángel Azteca Jr., Ángel de Oro, Ángel de Plata vs Euforia, Nosferatu, Pólvora
3) Valiente vs Sangre Azteca [lightning]
4) Blue Panther, Stuka Jr., Toscano vs Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto
5) Héctor Garza, Hijo del Fantasma, La Máscara vs Terrible, Texano Jr., Vangelis
6) La Sombra, Máscara Dorada, Místico vs Dragon Rojo Jr., Felino, Negro Casas
Ohhhhhhhh, screw you CMLL. (The idea is that Mistico is returning to the tecnico side here. And Sunday. But not Tuesday. Not that it’s going to work out so well, and I think I’m just talking about the finish to this match.) I love Dragon Rojo, I have no idea why he’s in that match. Maybe the Dorada/Rojo title match is coming to Arena Mexico?
Semimain answers the question: “Is Vangelis better than Taichi?” I don’t think Taichi is going to be happy with CMLL’s answer for that one. (My god, Vangelis could be three weeks away from being world champion of trios! If X-Fly wasn’t heavyweight champ, that would be astounding.)
Valiente vs Sangre is top 10 in greatest things ever to air on LATV. Not just lucha, anything ever.
CMLL (SUN) 04/11 Arena Coliseo
1) Bengala & Principe vs Disturbio & Semental
2) Fabián el Gitano, Molotov, Sensei vs Dr. X, Puma King, Tiger Kid
3) Lady Apache, Lluvia, Marcela vs Amapola, La Comandante, Princesa Sujei
4) Blue Panther, Sagrado, Toscano vs Dragon Rojo Jr., Misterioso II, Sangre Azteca
5) Brazo de Plata, Héctor Garza, Strong Man vs Atlantis, Rey Bucanero, Último Guerrero
Strong Man is back; and in MuscleMag (thanks Fredo). Poder Mexica teaming up twice in a week, someone in programming is clearly slipping. Puma & Tiger can’t escape Fabian!
