Perro Aguayo, Diamante & Hijo del Signo pick up first wins

Perro Aguayo Jr. is doing well after surgery, but they won’t know until Wednesday if the tumor is cancerous.

Arturo Rivera is still in the hospital, dealing with a fever after two operations to remove a respiratory infection.

CMLL (MON) 04/11/2011 Arena Puebla [Cinco Radio, Fuego en el Ring]
1) Blue Center & Centella de Oro b Aguila Guerrera & Ares
Aguila Guerrera’s return to this building.
2) Artillero, Espiritu Maligno, Súper Comando b Höruz, Milenium, Robin
3) Hijo del Signo b Hombre Bala Jr. [Forjando un Idolo]
Signo submitted Hombra Bala to pick up his first 3 points. Bala has zero. Negro Casas was at ringside for both of these matches.
4) Diamante b Puma King [Forjando un Idolo]
Top rope plancha (450?) for the win. Diamante has 3 points, Puma King has 0.
5) Sagrado, Toscano, Valiente b Negro Casas, Shigeo Okumura, Yoshihashi
In the third fall, Negro beat Toscano, Valiente defeated Yoshihashi, and Sagrado clinched it with a casita on Okumura.
6) La Sombra, Máscara Dorada, Strong Man DQ El Alebrije, Hirooki Goto, Psicosis
Goto fouled Strong Man for the DQ. This was Dorada’s final match before going to Japan.

Shocker thinks this tournament is a marvelous idea. He would preferred to have both tecnicos and rudos in his group (so he didn’t get to pick his group.) Shocker’s mini, Shockercito, seems to have gone missing.

Tonight’s Arena Mexico main event is Ultimo Guerrero & Dragon Rojo defending their tag team championship against La Mascara & Sombra (though this article seems to think it’s Mascara Dorada in the match.) This is the end of the recent run of Fan Appreciation sparked title matches. All of them have seen the champions keep their titles, and I suspect the same here, though it’s not a sure thing.

Mascara Ano 2000 Jr., who had previously said he’d be out a year and then came back in two months, says the doctors were amazed at fast his body recovered, and lucha libre is the best medicine. Hmmm. You know, one of the things about WWE’s Edge retiring last night is he can actually afford to retire; unless he does silly things with his money, he should be living comfortable for the rest of his life. That’s not true around here much.

Somos Luchadors has new lucha libre regulations in Ensanda. These are well worth reading: there are items like “championship fights must be guaranteed to be pay and a half” and “you must wrestle on the mat for at least the first three minutes in the first fall.”

Rob picked the entire Forjando un Idolo. Two for two so far!

First two matches not listed on the poster; since it’s a Coliseo show, Ticketmaster doesn’t have the info either. (CMLL is now listed the entire month’s schedule on Ticketmaster’s site, though advance shows don’t have lineups.) This is the last FuI group, Delta, to kick off. I wonder if we’ll get a Shocker appearance to coach up his guys?

CMLL (MON) 04/18/2011 Arena Puebla
1) Lestat & Stigma vs Centauro de Fuego & Siki Ozama Jr.
2) Bam Bam, Fantasy, Último Dragoncito vs Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Olímpico, Pierrothito

Same group here. Okumura and Sagrado continue their off and on feud. Tigre Rojo and Black Tiger haven’t been back here since setting up their feud.

IWRG (SUN) 04/24/2011 Arena Naucalpan
1) Chiva Rayada I, Jennifer Blake, Sexy Lady vs Lolita, Ludark Shaitan, Zumbi
2) Extreme Tiger & Nicho el Millionario vs Halloween & Lizmark Jr. and Máscara Año 2000 Jr. & Veneno and Hijo del Dr. Wagner Jr. & Máscara Año 2000 Jr. and Crazy Boy & Violento Jack and El Brazo & Negro Navarro
3) Monster Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown vs Bestia 666, Damián 666, X-Fly and Joe Lider, Silver King, Último Gladiador and Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro [cage, mask, hair]
4) Charly Manson & La Parka Jr. vs Cibernético & Electroshock [Relevos Increíbles]

Another Battle of the Promotions show. Cage match is the match they set up last Thursday; Los Maniacos don’t trust Joe Lider to keep up his end of the deal, if you weren’t already sure how that cage match was ending. (How they do determine who wins the trios titles? The second to last person to leave the cage is the best trio in IWRG?)

Chiva finally makes TV, just someone else’s TV (if that match airs on TV.)

  1. So Delta is in the Forjando un Idolo tournament but is in a position to team with Valiente in semi-main events against Felino. So can Dragon Lee and Metal Blanco do the same? No? Then why is Delta fighting for a spot he already has?

    Poor Lestat. Jobbed in the Gran Alternativa and back to Puebla openers! Maybe he’s being punished for Jeff Hardy’s sins.

    Are Sagrado and Okumura feuding? I want to say yes but the hat could just be matching them up completely at random lately.

    I guess Bam Bam is just killing time until he wins this years Torneo to move up to the regular sized division.

    Don’t see a title change tonight either.

  2. @Rob: I was under the impression Okumura and Sagrado were just getting matched up by The Hat frequently, like the Tuareg and Pegasso/Cometa. However, they were actually heavily feuding on 03/12 Fox show. It was enough that I wouldn’t blink if they had a fan Appreciation apuesta match.

    (Recap is in the queue, but Avernos vs trios champs from that show was pretty good if not MOTYC. Was disappointed when I couldn’t find the Sombra/Mephisto match.)

  3. Sombra vs Mephisto is up on LuchaLibreDeMexico’s channel. Missing a few seconds (or more?) of the third fall.

  4. CMLL 2.2
    AAA 3.4

    Chivas vs. America 20.8

    Other soccer games are not doing as well b/c Televisa continues to air most games on TDN and Galavision, thus diluting the market.
