CMLL Guadalajara on Teleformula #41 (04/03/2011)

Truenos at work

taped @ Arena Coliseo Guadalajara, 02/15/2011

recap: here

I think Maximo quitting CMLL (for a few hours) caused his match to be bumped from this match. Very disappointing; it might have been great, but it would’ve been entertaining. It’s not like this show was filled with other winners.

Rayo Tapatío I & Rayo Tapatío II vs Mr. Trueno & Rey Trueno: A dream match! Easily the best thing on this show, nothing extraordinary, but a well done veteran tag with the home team winning.

Lluvia, Luna Mágica, Marcela vs Mima Shimoda, Princesa Blanca, Tiffany: Luna Magica. I dunno. What can you say? This wasn’t a long match and that was fine.

Hijo del Fantasma & Toscano vs Mr. Águila & Olímpico: Guadalajara walk thru special.

2011 AAA TV Chart
Projected Air Dates (#987)
Mexico: 05/01
US: 05/14

AAA posted this themselves two weeks ahead of time. That’s early for them. I’m surprised we get to see it before Sunday’s taping.

Opener would be La Hechicera’s first TV match since 2009, though she’s regularly on the spot shows. That’d also be the first time Fabi & Mari have teamed with the girl they helped train.

Octagoncito & Mini Histeria were in the Relevos AAA at Rey de Reyes, but this is the first TV AAA minis match in two months. Mini Psicosis is the only one of the Mini Vipers that Octagoncito has yet to defeat in a singles title match this reign.

We’ll know more Sunday, but Electroshock may now be feuding with Chessman. He set up that direction in an interview posted on Record today.

Mystery Man in the semifinal is likely the same one from Sunday. Poor Billy el Malo. I suspect the Bizarros will stick around to get involved in the main event.

opposing students were from the Villano Gym, though Ojo de Tigre and his students tried to intercede and take the match for themselves. (They were asked to come back another time.) Not sure if I got everyone, but Centurion (IWRG) beat Negro Casasola (Villanos) in the end. Post match challenges set up Black Terry & Fresero Jr. vs Villano IV & a student (or maybe Villano V)

Main cage match of Arena Aficion Tuesday night ended in a double disqualification draw. Last two in were Hijo de Dr. Wagner and Hijo de LA Park, and one pulled the other’s mask while the other fouled, and that was the finish. If I was in the crowd and that’s what they did for a result, I’d never return.

Gronda is listed on a Kid’s Day show in Tijuana, with LA Park, Super Porky, and a Histeria which really could be II or III. Anyway, Gronda is wrestling again, though if he’s on that sort of show, this might not be the one in Pachuca.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update and the 2010 countdown from 20 to 10.



CMLL (TUE) 04/19/2011 Arena Mexico
1) Leono & Molotov vs Bronco & Inquisidor
2) Ángel Azteca Jr., Fuego, Metatrón vs Dr. X, Loco Max, Nitro
3) Diamante vs Hijo del Signo [Forjando un Idolo]
4) Hombre Bala Jr. vs Puma King [Forjando un Idolo]
5) Delta, Metal Blanco, Valiente vs Rey Bucanero, Terrible, Texano
6) Blue Panther, Rush, Super Porky vs Felino, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas

If Metal Blanco & Delta are in a match opposing the guys who main evented the last major show (Terrible & Texano) and the guy who main evented the last major show before that (Bucanero), then what is he getting out of this Forjando un Idolo tournament? They’re already treated like an Idol, there’s nothing they can win in this tournament (and there’s nothing they’ve actually mentioned you can win in this tournament.)

Super Porky tope

taped @ Arena Mexico, 03/18/2011

recap: here

La Sombra, Rush, Toscano vs Felino, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas: A usual match between these teams, though the crowd didn’t seem to be into Peste Negra as usual. (Different crowd than usual? Crowd still hated Rush and Toscano and weren’t fans of Sombra) Mr. Niebla defeating Sombra could be setting up something…in a parallel universe where Niebla could be trusted.

Averno vs Máscara Dorada for the NWA World Middleweight Championship: It was a great Mascara Dorada aerial show. It needed to be something more than that. If Dorada is going to become what CMLL wants him, he’s got to show he’s got more than cool dives. Dorada came across as a spectacular midcard guy, but not a top guy who came very close. This just being a set up for Black Warrior’s return doesn’t help, and that might have been more effective if he prevented the interference rather than waited until after the match to get involved. I wonder if someone decided Dorada couldn’t win this one, because he was going after Lyger’s title? I’m not sure he’s going to win that one either.

Máximo & Super Porky vs Terrible & Texano for the hair: Better than I expected. The last match was worked true to form – it was a lot of a Mistico/Averno match with Dorada plugged in – this match was worked outside the usual beatdown->comeback format, going back and forth all the way. Alvarados dropped the comedy, fought seriously for the occasion, and acquitted themselves well. I always dislike the short falls, but I think this was about as long a match as Porky could’ve gone.
