taped @ Arena Coliseo Guadalajara, 03/15/2011
Arkángel de la Muerte, Hooligan, Skándalo vs Diamante, Gallo, Sagrado: Fair. I’m a sucker for any time Hooligan pulls off his boot and starts hitting people with it, though it seems to be backfiring more times than it’s worked. I may just be a sucker for more Hooligan. Sagrado was really going after him with the boot after, he’s not letting the rudos have any fun.
Máximo & Rush vs Negro Casas & Rey Bucanero: This arrangement did not bring out the best of anyone. Getting another Bucanero/Maximo match after they negelected to show the blow off for that feud is annoying, though at least they had Maximo work Negro instead most of the time.

CMLL Gaceta previews Valiente vs Virus for the Mexican Welterweight Championship, noting they were both trained by wrestler Fuerza Aerea. I’d expect Valiente to hold on to the title.
A day before Aerostar was strechered out in Chilpancingo, Aerostar was strechered in Puebla after injuring his noise on his dive. Noticing a pattern. A child he hit also suffered a bloody nose.
TNA TV show will now start airing at the exact same time as the AAA TV show. I’m thinking that doesn’t help (though I’m not sure it matters.) Speaking of unfortunate timing, Drago is going to debut on US TV this Sunday doing the same green mist spit Rey Misterio did last night at the WWE PPV. Drago did it a month before, not sure it matters.

CMLL (SUN) 05/08/2011 Arena Mexico

5) Black Warrior, Máximo, Strong Man vs Felino, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas
Dragon Lee seems to have been disappeared from the Gen2011 vs Rayo Tapatios feud for a while.
No Forjando un Idolo quarterfinals here. That must mean they’re doing the other half next Friday (05/13), and they’ll be doing the semifinal and finals on the same night (05/20.)
Alebrije, Misterioso, and Olimpico winning those trios titles would get CMLL to 15 champions (+ the lightweight title.) On the other hand, that is a bizarre trio and one I’d never expect to beat Angel de Oro, Diamante and Rush in any other situation. I don’t think they’re losing here.
Hijo del Signo as a rudo (though not the biggest upside)
Hombre Bala Jr.
Bobby Zavala (least certain)
Hijo del Signo as a tecnico (so of course he’s one half the time)
Enrique Vera Jr.
Super Halcon Jr.
(Palacio Negro, Metal Blanco and everyone else you’re thinking of don’t count because the secret critera here is “Arkangel trainee.” Which may clue us in to who’s in charge of these matches.)
Super Halcon Jr. is so not ready for even openers. Magnus is ready for openers; makes a fine pair with Mortiz! Enrique Vera Jr. is ready for a promotion that doesn’t already have Rush because he’s basically the greener version. Dragon Lee is the most DTU wrestler in CMLL since Crazzy Boy. Hijo del Signo is the four year college basketball player, solidly fundamentally but no one believes he’ll carry a team. Bobby Zavala hasn’t been on my TV much. I genuinely believe there’s something in Hombre Bala that really may work out. Also, as interesting as this continues to be, I also genuinely believe that the absolutely last thing CMLL needed is seven more young wrestlers that they wanted to get over right away.
