CMLL (SUN) 04/18 Arena Mexico [Cesar, SuperLuchas, @cmllmagazine]
1) Metálico & Trueno b Cholo & Zayco
2) Dr. X, Nitro, Raziel b Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr., Molotov
3) Fuego, Metro, Pegasso b Arkangel de la Muerte, Euforia, Nosferatu
4) Brazo de Plata, Máximo, Sagrado DQ Shigeo Okumura, Taichi, Villano IV
5) Shocker, Strong Man, Toscano b Atlantis, Héctor Garza, Último Guerrero [Relevos Increíbles]
ATTACK! Semifinal ended in straight falls for the tecnicos, V4 (filling in for his brother) fouled Brazo de Plata. After the match, Psicosis II, Histeria, Maniaco, Monsther and Chucky hit the ring, attacking the tecnicos before being removed by security. The invaders escaped in a couple of cars before the tecnicos could get revenge this time. This is the second time they’ve run in, and the second time it’s been following a Taichi/Okumura match.
Garza worked as a rudo thru the main event, but ran away without being pinned.
Everyone challenged everyone else for a mask match after the segunda.
IWRG (SUN) 04/18 Arena Naucalpan [@gladiatores]
1) Alan Extreme b Héros
2) Daga & Dinamic Black b Comando Negro & Eterno
3) Chico Che, Eragon, Jack b Dr. Cerebro, Maldito Jr., Samoth
4) el Ángel, La Roca, Suicida b Oficial 911, Oficial Fierro, Veneno
5) Pirata Morgan & Scorpio Jr. b Canek & Máscara Año 2000 Jr. [relevos suicidas]
6) Máscara Año 2000 Jr. b Canek [IWRG IC HEAVY]
New champ. Canek had been champ since 2006. Also had not defended the belt since 2006.
Dos de Tres has video of La Parka Jr.’s challenge to LA Park.
Hector Garza continues to insist he’s still a tecnico, but just wanted to prove he can get it done in either camp, and that he can make anyone a bigger star. That’s directed at Fantasma and Mascara, but I’m thinking Polvora should not be fond of that statement. Doesn’t want to rock the boat right now, I bet.
Though he’s back to being a tecnico on the main shows, Mistico is still working previously booked rudo spots versus Volador elsewhere around the country.
Alebrije says he and the others ran in Arena Puebla because they wanted to prove they were better, and didn’t run in since because they’re independent and can show up where they want.
Arkangel, as a CMLL trainer, is critical of want to be wrestlers learning how to do moves by watching YouTube.
Today’s AAA TV show in Mexico announced Christopher Daniels would be coming in.
Cesar has a look at this week’s lineups.
EAW is pushing back their next card two weeks, to May 16th.
Rey Misterio Sr. underwent surgery today.
R de Rudo has the interviews from the Mini Boricuas vs Parkita & Mini Vagabundo feud. I think we’re up to 6 or 7 people who are claimed to be the original Parkita.
Estrellas del Ring writes about the WFS’ anniversary show, with two mask losses and one hair loss. The main even had Kahoz Jr. (not Mephisto) winning a cage match and Asturiano (not the guy from Puebla, I think.)
Black Terry Jr. put a whole bunch of photos of from ’07 and ’08.
LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.
SuperLuchas #360 has Sexi Star, Polvora, and Dark Angel picking up an Arison title in Japan. Only Dark Angel won the title, that was just a horrible designed sentence. SuperLuchas also has interviews with the Tuareg (who challenge the Cancerberos) and Cerebro Negro, who says he got kicked out of IWRG for also taking a DTU the same day. At the time, IWRG told him he could work both, and he arrived in IWRG to work both, but then they told him he’s no longer working there. Don’t ever be a luchador.
IWRG (THU) 04/22 Arena Naucalpan
1) Dragon Fly vs Epidemia
2) Brazo Metalico, Daga, Héros vs Alan Extreme, Comando Negro, Eterno
3) Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro vs Bombero Infernal, Maldito Jr., Samoth
4) Cerebro Negro, Kaos, Veneno vs Negro Navarro, Trauma I, Trauma II and Avisman, El Hijo del Diablo, Gringo Loco and Black Terry, Dr. Cerebro, Hijo del Signo [EdM Trios, semifinal]
Yes, Cerebro Negro has returned, just in time to participate in the tournament for the title he lost for not returning. He’s also not teaming with his former partners, which I don’t know what quite means except neither of those teams are winning the titles. I also have no clue who Kaos is – there was on on the RXLL show! This is probably not him.
Navarros vs Mascaras makes as much since as any.

3) La Sombra, Máscara Dorada, Volador Jr. vs Averno, Dragón Rojo Jr., Mephisto

Wait, this cage match only took like three weeks to happen! The accountant booking GDL wastes no time.
