Signo retirement, hair losses, more invaders, Volador pins Mistico, Mesias

elsewhere: I’ll be appearing on Figure Four Daily this upcoming Tuesday afternoon. I believe it’ll be subscriber only, but it is supposed to be a week of lucha guests if that affects your decision to subscribe.

indy (SAT) 05/01 Arena Neza [Estrellas del RingThe Gladiatores]
0) Mixteco Jr. b Challenger
1) Alan Extreme, Hermano Muerte, Keshin Black b Ángel de la Noche, Dinamic Black, Vuelo Espacial
2) Cocolores, Cósmico, Diamante Azul, Super Electra b Comando Negro, Crazy Boricua, Dark Zombie, Redentor
3) Solar I & Ultraman b Black Terry & Negro Navarro
4) Canek, Máscara Año 2000, Universo 2000 b El Fantasma, Último Guerrero, Villano III
5) Halcón Dorado Jr. L Hijo del Signo and Ultramán Jr. and Rambo and Tauro de Creta andFishman Jr. and Hijo del Solar and Hijo de Canek and el Signo and Villano IV [cage, hair]

On his retirement show, el Signo’s son beat Halcon Dorada Jr. for his hair. Ultimo Guerrero filled in for Dos Caras Sr. (??) and was feuding with Canek thru the match. Canek got away with a foul on Fantasma for the win, then challenged UG for a mask match.

The Perros hadn’t posted results from Tijuana’s show when I wrote this – a little busy, I guess – but I do know X-Fly and Halloween lost their hair on that show. Halloween accidentally hit X-Fly to cost him his match versus Charly Manson, and X-Fly accidentally hit Halloween when he was trying to climb out the cage, giving Super Nova the win. Nova wasn’t advertised for that match, so presumably the CMLL Invaders were not on this show after all and change were made.

No word on results yet from tonight’s Perros show either, but that should all turn up by midday tomorrow.

CMLL (SUN) 05/02 Arena Mexico [Cesar, @cmllmagazine]
1) Bengala, Metálico, Trueno DQ Camorra, Cholo, Zayco
2) Dr. X, Puma King, Tiger Kid DQ Ángel Azteca Jr., Diamante, Fabián el Gitano
3) Blue Panther, Metro, SagradoEuforia, Vangelis, Virus
4) Brazo de Plata, La Sombra, Toscano DQ El Alebrije, Histeria, Psicosis
5) Volador Jr.Místico

Mistico worked as a rudo thru the main event, but Volador used a distraction (pointing to a interloper on the stage – no one was actually there) to pull off Mistico’s mask and small package him for the win. They challenged and accepted a mask match. That’d be neat! I’m not holding my breath!

Didn’t thing about this until reading Cesar’s recap, but I don’t know about the logic of using Brazo de Plata in your serious invasion angle. Anyway, the Independent army was reenforced by Hermanos Dinamtias – Mascara Ano 2000 & Universo 2000 – who ran in and attacked for the third fall DQ. With these guys now apparently involved, we’ve got a weird situation of Mascara Ano 2000 on a CMLL show on Sunday, and facing AAA’s notWagnerManiacos on Thursday.

Fabian yanked off Dr. X’s mask for a DQ in retaliation for previous mask pullings the other way. Fabian said he was willing to be a rudo to make his point, and challenged mask vs mask again, and Dr. X seemed okay with it before everyone else started throwing in their challenges. Dr. X vs Fabian seems like the prime feud here.

Trueno was hurt in the opener, but his side still won via excessive violence DQ.

A new Kato Kung Lee was introduced on the show.

AAA notes Vampiro helping Zorro reveals him to be Zorro’s mystery friend from recent TV episodes. They really like doing mystery people in shadows lately. Anyway, if they’re going to push that partnership, maybe the TripleMania match is Vamprio/Zorro vs Cibernetico/? (Mesias if healthy?)

Mesias did appear on Saturday’s AAA show in Puebla, but only to apologize for being hurt and announce Rocky Romero as his replacement.

Estrellas del Ring has interviews with aspiring luchadoras Ludark & Sexy Lady.

DJ Spectro has an interview with the original Maquina Salvaje, and other photos & notes from a Mask Expo.

Cronicas Y Leyendas looks back at Satoru Sayama vs Ringo Mendoza from the 49th Anniversary show.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.

SuperLuchas #362 has Dos Caras Jr. on the cover. Judging from comments in the latest WON and Dos working dark matches constantly, he’s going to be on WWE TV very soon. It’ll be interesting to see if he puts the mask back on when they tour Mexico. He hasn’t had it on in the dark matches, and he surely won’t if he doesn’t wear it on TV.


IWRG (SUN) 05/09 Arena Naucalpan
1) Dinamic Black vs Comando Negro
2) Daga & Tonatiuh vs Alan Extreme & Eterno
3) Black Terry, Cerebro Negro, Jack vs Bombero Infernal, Maldito Jr., Samot
4) Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro vs Avisman, El Hijo del Diablo, Gringo Loco
5) Dr. Cerebro, Rayo de Jalisco Jr., Scorpio Jr. vs Fuerza Guerrera, Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Pirata Morgan

Eh. Coming soon to your CMLL main events?

06/04 Arena Mexico Lineup (Inferno en el Ring, unconfirmed)

CMLL (FRI) 06/04 Arena Mexico
1) Atlantis, Rey Bucanero, Último Guerrero vs Histeria II, Maniaco, Psicosis II
2) Héctor Garza vs Hijo del FantasmaMísticoLa SombraVolador Jr.Felino [cage, hair, mask]

CMLL has not confirmed this lineup, but KrisZ says he’s heard this from a trusted source, and KrisZ is a trusted source, so we go with it. This far out, plans are liable to change, but this works with what they’ve set up recently.

Inferno en el Ring is the June cage match, so we would expect a match like that in the main event. It seems unlikely that whatever is going with the Tuareg/Cats/CMLL Fuerza Aerera/Dancers is leading to a cage match if they’re already doing this one. I don’t know if that means that will end up being some giant Russian roulette tournament, or just one singles match, or they just don’t have any plan and this will last all the way until September.
