04/30 & 05/02 CMLL Lineups, other notes

CMLL (FRI) 04/30 Arena Mexico
1) Leono & Starman vs Bronco & Inquisidor
2) Fuego & Metro vs Euforia & Raziel
3) Dark Angel, Lady Apache, Marcela vs Hiroka, Mima Shimoda, Princesa Blanca
4) Bracito de Oro vs Pequeño Warrior [mask]
5) Hijo del Fantasma, La Máscara, Místico vs Dragón Rojo Jr., Shigeo Okumura, Taichi
6) Delta & Volador Jr. vs Héctor Garza & Pólvora [Gran Alternativa, final]

Kid’s Day, $1 a ticket. Weird to run three tag matches but OK. Besides the two stip matches – where the rudos would be favorites if not for being Kid’s Day – there’s apparently issues between Dragon Rojo and Mistico. I dunno.

CMLL (SUN) 05/02 Arena Mexico
1) Bengala, Metálico, Trueno vs Camorra, Cholo, Zayco
2) Ángel Azteca Jr., Diamante, Fabián el Gitano vs Dr. X, Puma King, Tiger Kid
3) Blue Panther, Metro, Sagrado vs Euforia, Vangelis, Virus
4) Brazo de Plata, La Sombra, Toscano vs El Alebrije, Histeria, Psicosis

CMLL vs Independents match, but they’re also a match short. It seems like time and place for that midcard cage match, but they also have the relevos incriedble match this upcoming with Mistico & Atlantis on the ‘wrong teams.’

Besides the expected stuff on Ras de Lona, there was also a segment about Horus being Nieto de Angel Blanco (complete with wearing the mask) and all the hype for Mephisto/La Mascara very obviously avoided reference to the abbreviation “NWA”.

You need to see Kcidis latest cartoon now.

Delta & Volador advance, KOT

Mistico wore a Mexico World Cup futbol jersey. He’s a tecnico. He got Dragon Rojo with La Mistica to win.

Delta & Volador, the favorites, move on to face Polvora/Garza next week on Kid’s Day. Hmmm. Matches were between 3 and 8 minutes for the tournament.

Bracito de Oro beat Warrior clean.

Team Perros del Mal defeated Team Delicoso in the first round of CHIKARA’s King of Trios. Cuije stole the match by being Cuije, not a big surprise. Oriental, Alebrije, and Cuije move on to face the BDK Trio of Claudio Castagnoli, Ares, and Tursas tonight in the quarters.

Fuego en el Ring talks about Latin Lover’s meeting about the name. So does Gladiadores. And Estrellas del Ring.

AAA announced Chris Daniels will start with the group in 04/30, so the TV lineup they just gave out is changing.

The story about Team Mexico not making the tournament got picked up by Luchas2000. In the comments, Gigolo Americano, who I believe originally brought Skayde to CHIKARA before his own fall out with the company, defends Skayde over in the comments of that post.

A video shows Super Brazo now has a shaved head, fulfilling the stip of a cage match from a week or so back.

Ultimo Dragon says DragonMania will be on 05/29.

Rob writes about 09/05 and 09/12/09 52MX, and some July 09 FSE.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.

AAA on Televisa #932 (04/03/2010)

Plaza de Toros Santa Maria, Queretaro, 03/12/2010

Cinthia Moreno, Fabi Apache, Mari Apache vs Christina Von Eerie, Rain, Sexy Star: A notable improvement over last week, and I’m not just saying that because I like Rain more than you. The match just had a better flow, they have a better idea of what they were doing. Nice build to a match they’re not actually doing any more.

Extreme Tiger vs Alex Koslov for the AAA World Cruiserweight Championship:not at all what I wanted out of this match, a collage of bits done in other matches without any understanding why they were being done. Soon, someone will create an easy way to splice YouTube videos together, and then these guys won’t even need to go to th ering

Joe Lider, Nicho el Millionario, Pimpinela Escarlata vs Dr. Wagner Jr., Silver King, Último Gladiador:kind of weird, but kind of worked.

Cibernético vs Konnan in a lumberjack rules match: beyond pathetic. All this TV time into a match that goes 3 minutes and is heavily, heavily edited. Time was not an issue – they could’ve easily bumped one of these matches to next week – this match was just awful and they were doing their best to hide it. No more feuds ending with Konnan in the ring, please. I want the same with Cibernetico, but there’s no hope there. I think they hurt the big angle by speeding thru it thru clips, you didn’t have much time to soak in what was happening. ANGRY DANCING.

El Mesías vs Mr. Anderson and Electroshock for the AAA World Heavyweight Championship: can’t understand why Mesias didn’t take the loss if they’re not going to that match. Electro’s reign not getting off to a great start.
