1) Dinamic Black & Pikachu b Guerrero 2000 & Muerte Infernal
2) Golden Magic, Hijo de Clímax, Hijo del Pantera b Alan Extreme, Carta Brava Jr., El Pollo Asesino
3) Chico Che, Hijo del Brazo, Veneno DQ Bombero Infernal, Comando Negro, Fresero Jr.
Fresero Jr. was using a fork on Veneno without the referees noticing. Veneno got the fork, and the refs noticed that. This is a new Hijo del Brazo making his debut.
4) Multifacético, Negro Navarro, Trauma I b Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Ray Mendoza Jr., Villano IV
Hijo de Pirata Morgan lost the match and his partners turned on him. Navarros (including Trauma II) did not make the save but did challenge the Villanos to a match.

Big day of shows. WWE’s four day tour hits Mexico City, with a show at Palacio de los Deportes. Sin Cara will be back wrestling in DF for the first time in four months (since Super Porky ran him off!) CMLL may be debuting it’s replacement Mistico tonight, which might still get lost in the coverage of the WWE show. We know for sure CMLL will have it’s final two Forjando un Idolo quarterfinals as well as more focus on Averno vs Mascara.  AAA is also running tonight outside the capital (about 40 minutes away) in Cuautitlan, it’s first taping in two weeks. There’s a mixed tag team title and 187 teaming up for the first time in a while, but probably the biggest news story is Charly Manson, fresh out of jail, returning to the rudo side in the main event. (No indication if AAA is doing live results.)

AAA announced Velvet Sky & Angelina Love from TNA would also be appearing at TripleMania. They’ll team with Mickie James and Sexi Star. Tecnica side must be four of the Apaches, the Morenos and Lolita. I hope Jennifer Blake gets on the show some other way, she’s been good.

AAA also sent out an interview with Konnan, to reiterate he’s against bringing in the TNA guys. Money quote: “I think young people [Dorian] always want to make their own mistakes and this is what he’s doing.” As much as every AAA show this year seems to end with Dr. Wagner forming a group to defeat La Sociedad, it seems more likely that group is going to fall apart due to internal struggles.

Jeff Jarrett is now teasing Kurt Angle, Jeff Hardy, Sting, Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair. That’s going to be stupendous if those people are appearing at Triplemania, but not so great if those names are being teased with no thought they’d actually be delivered.

LuchaWorld has this week’s Ras de Lona.


CMLL Forjando un Idolo matches, week 3

didn't want any Polvora on his shirt?

Or at least the ones that are left. No Puebla, Coliseo matches turned on up on 52MX, Friday matches aired on Galavision, which just leaves the Tuesday shows.


Ángel de Plata vs Pólvora, taped Arena Mexico, 04/26/2011: felt like an ordinary lightning match, outside of Angel de Plata deciding to see how many times he could trip up Pólvora in a row. The great thing about this tournament is I know for sure know two moves Plata does – springboard faceslam, cristo faceslam – that are not dives or moves everyone does. Not sure about the stuff Pólvora does.


Fuego vs Magnus, taped Arena Mexico, 04/26/2011: Fuego has had a fun tournament so far but this was probably the least of it. Magnus is just not ready for this sort of tournament. He has spots, but it takes everything he has just to do those spots and there’s not a lot interesting about him besides the dive of death (and he really shouldn’t be doing that every match, or every month.)
