CMLL (SUN) 07/25 Arena Coliseo [@cmllmagazine]
1) Apolo Estrada Jr. & Disturbio b Principe & Robin
2) Pequeño Universo 2000, Pequeño Violencia, Pequeño Warrior b Pequeño Olímpico, Saturno, Shockercito
3) Arkangel de la Muerte, Loco Max, Skándalo b Fuego, Rush, Stuka Jr.
4) Charly Manson, El Alebrije, Olímpico b Blue Panther, Máscara Dorada, Sagrado
5) Místico, Shocker, Strong Man b Averno, Jushin Liger, Mephisto
Mistico and Strong Man got Averno & Liger in the main event.
Charly beat Dorada clean with el Pozo. They seem to be going strong with Manson.
Loco Max beat Rush in two straight falls, though he might have had a little help. This can not possibly end well for Loco Max.
Cesar says the Monsther in CMLL is not the current one, but is actually the Frankenstein who was teaming with him in the indies (and presumably someone else in that family; a quick check shows Hombra Bala Jr. and Frankenstein in the opposite sides of the same match.) On last week’s match on 52MX, he didn’t seem to be moving like the new guy you’d expect the ex-Frankenstein to be, but it would explain why they had him do three straight sentons.
Kenzo Suzuki turned up in AJPW last night, as a member of their Voodoo Murders. Putting aside the historic importance of Kenzo & Rene Dupree teaming up again, I’m not really sure what, if anything, it means to Kenzo in AAA. He hasn’t gotten booked as much this year by AAA, so he could be just making it up by working in Japan as well. AJPW isn’t probably wowing anyone with paydays lately either; if he had that full time, he could still use AAA’s paycheck.
Both Cesar and Rob preview the first half of the CMLL Universal Tournament.
Croncias Y Leyendas has part 2 of Dinastia Grimaldo.
Segunda Caida reviews more Black Terry.
SuperLuchas #374 has Fabian unmasked, Mistico/Psicosis, and the Ultimo Dragon Lucha Libre Fesitval show.
LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.
There’s a Thursday IWRG show, but no lineup.
