Main event ended in a foul related DQ! Perro fouled Charly, and covered him, but the only referee left is the tecnico one so he called the DQ.

You know how I know it’s a DTU show? The opener went to a no contest and there was a draw in a three way tag. We were only an EAW show from every strange promotion running shows this weekend. Top 3 matches were a tournament of hardcoreness, with Violento Jack losing after having to do his semifinal and final back to back and being randomly attacked by Cuervo. I think Skayde was pinned first in his triangle match when both guys teamed up, and then Paranokio and Super Mega turned into the usual hardcore match, but I may be misunderstanding things. Fabain el Gitano was listed on the lineup but did not appear. That would’ve been too weird.

what is Sagrado wearing?/CMLL

Strong/Bernard team won in straight falls again. Maybe Benard is joining the rudo side not so much because of a turn, but because CMLL has decided they’re too unfair a combination.

Semimain was the final of the tournament from the last few weeks, but we still do not have a new champion. Gallo took the first, Trueno the second. During the third fall, Metal Blanco (Gallo’s second) was arguing with the ref about something, which allowed Rey Trueno (Mr. Trueno’s second) to sneak in and help his brother. Mr. Trueno used a modified mecedora to pin Gallo, but also pinned himself at the same time. The Guadalajara box y lucha commissioner annulled the match and told them to try it again next Sunday.

CMLL (SUN) 05/30 Arena Coliseo [CMLL, @cmllmagazine, ESTO]
1) Artillero & Súper ComandoBengala & Principe
2) Astral, Pequeño Olímpico, Último DragoncitoPequeño Nitro, Pequeño Universo 2000, Pequeño Violencia
3) RushPólvoraSagradoNosferatuDeltaSkándaloMetroArkangel de la MuerteFuegoDr. XHooliganRey Cometa [cibernetico]
4) Felino, Negro Casas, Taichi DQ Brazo de Plata, Máximo, Volador Jr.

Taichi faked a foul to draw the winning DQ. notes how Taichi has dominated this feud. HMMMMMMM.

Order for the third is reverse order of elimination (Cometa was out first, and so on.) Arkangel & Metro took the double pin spot. Delta was eliminated due to injury; he’s really struggled since the Gran Alternativa, and may have been meant to stick around longer to work this finish off the Polvora/Delta GA final.

When Sombra beat Tiger Mask IV on Sunday, he really must’ve beat him. Earlier today, NJPW announced Tiger Mask IV was withdrawing from the tournament due to a neck injury. He’ll be out two months. This means Sombra’s win does not really help him much in progressing to the next round – everyone else will get a forfeit win now – but TM4’s absence probably opens up a spot for some else to advance. My guess is Liger or Ibushi are more likely, but Sombra has a shot.

A couple days late, Ovaciones has an interview with Sombra previewing his match with Tiger Mask IV. Oops! Sombra says he got some advice about how to handle TM4 from his fellow CMLL wrestlers. At the same time, Sombra says he still has a grudge against Mistico for the Super Sky Team break up, so I wonder who we’re supposed to think he talked to. Also, I wonder if anyone who’s programming CMLL still knows Sombra has a grudge against Mistico, because that’s sure not reflected in the ring.

LuchandoLibre’s recap of Toryumon Mexico show notes the CMLL guys, except maybe those in the main events and the minis, were mailing in their work. Hijo del Fantasma spending most of the Dragon Scramble laying on the mat sounds kind of hilarious, especially since he won.

In Monterrey, Shira took Malena Hernandez‘s hair in a battle of women’s wrestlers.

Relampago Cadenas Sr. passed away in Veracruz.


AAA (SUN) 06/06 Arena Coliseo Monterrey
1) Mini Rey Sagitario vs Mini Sky
2) Babe Fox & Rey Imagen vs Demencia & Lobo Rojo
3) Rió Bravo, Tigre Cota, Tito Santana II vs Angel Dorado Jr., Gato Fantasma, Sky
4) Androide, Corazon Adicto, Rey Sagitario vs Black Abyss, Histeria, Psicosis
5) Golden Boy, Rey Demonio Jr., Simbolo vs Cuervo, Escoria, Ozz

More people who will not be getting a TripleMania payoff. Haven’t seen Psycho Circus listed anywhere; wonder if they’re scheduled for a run-in somewhere along the line, or maybe a dark match against the likes of Chris/Alan/Elegido. They’re billing this show as AAA vs Monterrey – which side is Poder el Norte on?

Dos Caras and WWE disconnect

Near the end of this week’s SuperLuchas, there’s an interview with Dos Caras Senior about his son’s recent matches on the WWE tour of Mexico and upcoming debut on TV.* Dos Caras noted that the fans did not generally seem to know his son prior to his match. They also did not know Dos Sr. when he appeared to introduce his son. The fan reports posted on SuperLuchas during the tour noted the same lack of recognition at the time. Read More
