Averno outsmarts Mascara, Oro & Fuego advance, Parka, TNA/AAA, Fantasma

CMLL (FRI) 05/06/2011 Arena Mexico [CMLLRecord (1-2, 5-6)Record (3-4)]
1) Estrellita, La Comandante, Princesa BlancaDalys la Caribeña, Goya Kong, Luna Mágica
La Comandante beat Goya Kong with a splash.
2) Ángel de Plata, Delta, Stuka Jr.Pólvora, Shigeo Okumura, Yoshihashi
Plata got some Forjando un Idolo redemption by cradling Polvora as he went for a leg lock for the win.
3) FuegoDiamante [Forjando un Idolo, quarterfinal]
Fuego (UG) used a leglock to get the upset over Diamante (Panther, undefeated up till this.)
4) Ángel de OroGuerrero Maya Jr. [Forjando un Idolo, quarterfinal]
Ultimo Guerrero student over a Shocker student. Maya went for a second rope senton, missed, and Oro immediately put him in a campana for the victory.
5) Rey Bucanero, Terrible, TexanoBlue Panther, Rush, Strong Man
Rudo trio is using the name Fuerza TRT. Rudos avoided Strong Man in the first fall, but he finally got in and cleaned house to set up the tecnico fall. Rudos came back for the less two, all pinning Strong Man in the third after a superbomb.
6) Averno, Negro Casas, Último GuerreroLa Máscara, La Sombra, Máscara Dorada
Negro Casas replaced Atlantis. Rudos took the first and the third. Mascara had UG in the campana and seemed about to beat him. Meanwhile, Dorada springboarded at Averno (who’s mask was ripped up by Mascara.) Averno fouled him, distracted the ref, yanked Mascara’s mask off, and pinned Dorada as UG pinned Mascara.

Forjando un Idolo matches

La Parka is making official his new group of himself, the Dark Family, and Drago, and calling it “El Inframundo” (the underworld.) Parka explains he’s a dancing skeleton, Ozz, Cuervo, Espiritu are the living dead, and Drago is an immortal dead dragon. (Of course!)

Dorian Roldan was asking followers on Twitter to tell him which TNA wrestlers they’d like to see. Right now, he’s running a Twitter poll until Monday for which women they would like to see and it seemed like Mickie James & Velvet Sky were winning. Mickie James is probably the best idea of the women available (Dark Angel not being an option), though I’m not sure the Dorian’s Twitter follows are close to an accurate representation of AAA’s fans (who mostly aren’t on Twitter) and bringing in women from TNA or who are now in TNA has produced consistently bad matches leaning towards disasters usually met with indifference from the crowd.

Hijo del Fantasma has often been mentioned as luchador who would do better than others in a US promotion, because he speaks conversational English. According to yesterday’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter, this is now a problem: CMLL has stepped down Fantasma’s push because they fear WWE will eventually snatch him away, so they don’t want to put Fantasma on top and look like they’re losing a top star. (This is exceedingly dumb if true, but it would explain why the Mephisto feud has totally vanished.)

Rush, talking about the trios title match on Ras de Lona, said he didn’t respect anyone. A fine tecnico. In talking about his title win, Valiente said he’d like to defend against rudos or tecnico in Arena Mexico, mentioning Ultimo Guerrero and Sombra, or move to a bigger weight division. Marcela, Amapola and Mima Shimoda are headed to Japan this weekend for the first Reina show.

CMLL (TUE) 05/10/2011 Arena Mexico
1) Astro Boy & Bengala vs Disturbio & Semental
2) Dalys la Caribeña, Estrella Mágica, Luna Mágica vs Estrellita, Princesa Sujei, Tiffany

4) Ángel de Oro, Hijo del Fantasma, Valiente vs Dragón Rojo Jr., Felino, Negro Casas
5) Black Warrior, Blue Panther, Strong Man vs Atlantis, Héctor Garza, Mr. Niebla

Tercera should be fun. Ras de Lona had Hector Garza and Volador instead of Felino & Negro Casas, and all of Peste Negra in the main event. Volador hasn’t been on any card since last Sunday.

CMLL (FRI) 05/13/2011 Arena Mexico
1) Höruz, Robin, Trueno vs Artillero, Mortiz, Súper Comando
2) Ángel Azteca, Ángel de Plata, Pegasso vs Arkángel de la Muerte, Loco Max, Skándalo
3) Pólvora vs Hijo del Signo [Forjando un Idolo, quarterfinal]
4) Delta vs Rey Escorpion [Forjando un Idolo, quarterfinal]
5) Máximo, Super Porky, Toscano vs Negro Casas, Rey Bucanero, Terrible
6) Blue Panther, La Máscara, Máscara Dorada vs Averno, Ephesto, Último Guerrero

Ras de Lona had Texano in Negro’s spot, and Mephisto in Ultimo Guerrero’s spot. Might have wanted to get the coaches matches since they have to be there for their students anyway. CMLL.com hasn’t updated their subsite, but it doesn’t look like the first semifinal is this week.

  1. For reasons nobody will ever be able to explain CMLL TV starts with the tercera from 3/11/11 which was originally unaired.

  2. 52MX has
    Rey Escorpion vs Palacio Negro [Forjando un Idolo]
    Ángel de Oro vs Rey Cometa [Forjando un Idolo]
    Atlantis, Último Guerrero, Volador Jr. vs Black Warrior, Blue Panther, La Sombra

    which means FOX got this week’s Rayo Tapatio fun (with Virus/Stuka) and the Mex Trios build.

  3. positive: 52MX has an onscreen clock for the Forjando un Idolo matches
    negative: it’s completely unreadable. Dark red text usually in front of a dark crowd. They must’ve have meant to put a light background in front of it.

  4. @Rob: Thinking about it – WON did say CMLL wasn’t happy with the main event (thinking the title match was a lot better), so maybe they’re reconfigured the show to end with Goto/UG instead. Though they’ve aired matches on both LATV and the main shows before and could’ve done it here.

  5. LATV has:

    Guerrero Maya Jr., Hombre Bala Jr., Stuka Jr. b Rayo Tapatío I, Rayo Tapatío II, Virus from 5/1 Arena Coliseo

  6. Now they are showing the Semi main from the same show. This is pretty wacky yet awesome.

  7. I know this is known but man Magnus really sucks. He shouldn’t even be on tv. Surprised Loco Max didn’t go Brody on him.

    Guerrero Maya tried to do a Ultimo Dragoncito style dive in both his matches today. I like that guy.

  8. Totally forgot about C3 tonight. Did they air the mini’s or just start with Fuerza Aerea?

  9. Started with Fuerza Aerea. You seen Blanco/Maya yet Rob? Pretty good match and loved Shocker in a suit. Guess he quit smoking? Kinda looked like Kojak.

  10. Fox Sports México got 2nd and Final )Heavyweight Championship) from 55th Anniversary 04/29 show:

    Hijo del Fantasma, Sangre Azteca & Valiente vs Misterioso Jr, Shigeo Okumura & Vangelis
    Ultimo Guerrero vs Hiroki Goto

    Missed it the first time it aired earlier b/c was watching Galavisión. BIG mistake.

  11. See. Today was the wacky world of Lucha on TV! Can’t wait for next week’s Lucha Times post!

  12. I like how Cadena 3 now comes in more with a much higher resolution. The sound keeps going up and down but I’m sure they’ll work that out too.

  13. ACM match was
    4/24: Dangerous, Rey Demonio Jr., Veneno Extremo vs ABC, Caifan Rockero I, Trueno (CMLL)

  14. GDL has
    03/29
    Metal Blanco & Palacio Negro vs Inquisidor & Raziel
    Delta, Metro, Sangre Azteca vs Euforia, Misterioso Jr., Virus
    Héctor Garza & Volador Jr. vs Rush & Toscano
