Mascara vs Averno, unfriendly TRT, Polvora & Delta advance, Suicida shaved

CMLL (FRI) 05/13/2011 Arena Mexico [CesarCMLLRecord]
1) Artillero, Mortiz, Súper ComandoHöruz, Robin, Trueno
Rudo win, taking 2/3. Trueno took Mortiz’s spanish fly. Robin had a poor night.
2) Arkángel de la Muerte, Loco Max, SkándaloÁngel Azteca, Ángel de Plata, Pegasso
Rudos took 1/3.
3) DeltaRey Escorpion [Forjando un Idolo, quarterfinal]
Crowd got into this match. Rey Escorpion tried to cheat again, but Ultimo Guerrero stopped him and Delta eventually took the win. Ultimo Guerrero and Rey Escorpion had real problems after this one, shoving each other on (and off) the ramp.
4) PólvoraHijo del Signo [Forjando un Idolo, quarterfinal]
Hijo del Signo was the last Group Alfa (Negro Casas) member standing. He lost, and Polvora becomes the second group Delta (Blue Panther) member to get thru.
5) Metal Blanco, Palacio Negro, Stuka Jr.Euforia, Shigeo Okumura, Yoshihashi
Bonus match, added midweek (but not publicized.) Probably not airing.
6) Negro Casas, Rey Bucanero, TerribleMáximo, Super Porky, Toscano
Rudos won, but Terrible & Bucanero turned on Zacarias and Negro Casas post match. Members of Fuerza TRT do not want anything to do with other rudos.
7) Averno, Ephesto, Último Guerrero DQ Blue Panther, La Máscara, Máscara Dorada
Rudos won in straight falls, with La Mascara angrily ripping off Averno’s mask in the second fall. More mask/mask challenges.

AAA (FRI) 05/13/2011 Arena Neza [Estrellas del Ring]
1) Montana Infernal & Muercielado NocturnoÁngel Mortal Jr. & Marabunta Jr.
2) Black Lancer, Okawa, Vampiro MetailcoCarta Brava, Hermano Muerte II, Hermano Muerte III
3) Mari Apache, Octagoncito, Pimpinela EscarlataMini Chessman, Polvo de Estrellas, Sexy Star
Mari replaced Fabi.
4) Neza KidMike Segura [hair]
Mike Segura lost his hair, so the mystery of Neza Kid lives another day (though it’d be more of a mystery if he wore a shirt and covered up his shoulder tattoos.) Ultraviolent match, though the finish was Suicida suplexing Neza Kid three times, reaching to pick up Neza again, and being cradles for the three count.
5) El Mesías, Monster Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown Bestia 666, Damián 666, el Hijo del Perro Aguayo, X-Fly
X-Fly was over here instead of the TV taping. Monster Clown hurt his ankle and fought in one shoe for a while. Mesias gave Perro a backcracker for a clean win!

Crowd looks pretty decent, strong by Arena Neza standards. Curious to know who the ‘local’ promoter is.

The lucha news was dominated by WWE’s show in Mexico City, and their announcement of television tapings in Palacio de los Deportes this October. WWE will record Raw on October 15 (Saturday) and SmackDown on October 16 (Sunday). With tapings finally happening, the new dangling carrot was maybe running WrestleMania in Azteca Stadium (but they probably need to work on airing something live first.) CMLL tends to run a mid level show the second week of October and AAA runs the Heroes Inmortales show in early October, so this may affect both of their plans.

At the press conference, Big Show said Alberto del Rio reminded him of an actor, like Frank Sinatra (?) but he’s ugly and should go back to wearing a mask. I want to watch movies with Sin Cara.

Perros del Mal are calling their anniversary show PerroMania XIX.

Ras de Lona included an interview with Hombre Bala Junior and Senior. Good to see Senior on his feet. They actually sort of mentioned Psicosis’ poor outcomes in title matches (biased refereeing, naturally) and Psicosis talked about his upcoming international matches (including Lucha Libre USA, which I believe is the first time they’ve actually mentioned that group by name here; Marco was also spotted in the brief about Shocker’s restaurant opening.)

Looks like the CMLL TV changes from last week were not a one time thing; CMLL Fox is airing matches from last Friday, so LATV is likely getting the Mex trios title match today.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.

Lineups

CMLL (TUE) 05/17/2011 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Leo vs Black Metal
2) Metatrón & Virgo vs Acertijo & León Blanco
3) Último Dragoncito vs Pierrothito
4) Delta, Diamante, Metro vs Ephesto, Scorpion, Vangelis
5) Hijo del Fantasma, Sangre Azteca, Toscano vs Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto

Odd to see a singles non-title minis match here, but they’ve actually done this same match here twice in 2008, splitting the results. They’re 3-3 versus each other in singles matches all time.

CMLL (FRI) 05/20/2011 Arena Mexico
1) Bengala & Robin vs Bronco & Inquisidor
2) Dark Angel, Lluvia, Marcela vs Amapola, Estrellita, Tiffany
3) Delta vs Pólvora [Forjando un Idolo, semifinal]
4) Ángel de Oro vs Fuego [Forjando un Idolo, semifinal]
5) Rey Bucanero, Terrible, Texano vs Metro, Super Porky, Valiente
6) La Máscara vs Averno
7) Felino, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas vs La Sombra, Máscara Dorada, Rush

Not too big of a surprise that match is not a title match; it hasn’t been about the title. Wish they’d put their big singles matches in the main event spot.

Back when Rey Bucanero was added to Peste Negra, it was because they needed another man. Mr. Niebla was not around. Mr. Niebla is back now, but history indicates we should not expect him to stay around forever. Yet, CMLL doesn’t seem to be concerned at all now, making sure we know Bucanero is split from the group. I hope that’s a positive sign about Niebla, but I wonder if it means they’re much less concerned about keeping Peste Negra going or they’ve got a new member planned.

Interestingly, Ras de Lona had Shocker in Mascara Dorada’s place. Must’ve been some hope he’d been back this week. Should be soon.

  1. Perro should clearly only be losing cleanly to kicks to the gut and other moves that would sell the stomach surgery.

  2. It’s good to see they aren’t over-doing the multi-man matches at Triplemania. Nobody waits until the biggest show of the year to see a big singles match like Parka vs Park or Mesias vs Wagner anyhow.

  3. @Nikita: CMLL may wait until Juicio Final (or whatever they’re calling the major show they run in June/July) to reveal Mistico 2011.

  4. CMLL’s new B-show on Televisa starts with the 5/6 opener. Don’t get excited, the opener was women + Goya Kong and La Comandante.

  5. Dude, like usual, you are wrong. It’s actually Big Show and not Sín cara the one who says Alberto Del Río reminded him of an actor of Frank Sinatra’s movies and he should wear his mask again. I need to see more press reports to confirm this.

  6. @Calebcd44 – I thought somewhere this week CMLL said he would be intro’d last night….?

    @Arakas – Cubs could totally be reporting something wrong, but you are bashing him based on reports of something you didn’t even see…

  7. It’s not a WWE blog so quite frankly nobody should care if a quote from the Big Slow was right or wrong. If something like that greatly impacts your life and you need to consult other sources to verify it’s accuracy perhaps you need a new hobby.

    Looks like the entire 5/6 Arena Mexico show made TV today. 2 & 5 on FOX, the rest on Galavision. If that’s the new format maybe Arena Mexico Fridays will get a bonus match every week now as to not have to show the openers on television.

  8. Man, you know The Dude can’t get everything right. He tries man. He reviewed freaking Arena Coliseo de Monterrey just this past week, man. What the fuck more do people want from the Dude. He might have gotten something wrong, but he places the link to the direct source for practically every story and only post his translation or opinion on the news. Heck, the dude color-coded rudos and tecnicos, man… I mean, who does that really. Everyone makes mistakes and the dude usually corrects them when he has time. Would have been easier to just say, hey dude, you have the wrong name listed for the WWE link. How hard would that have been?

    Don’t come in here pissing on the dude’s rug!

  9. @Alfredo: This is quite possibly my favorite rant ever in the comments.

    If the Dude screws so much stuff up, I don’t understand why this clown keeps coming back to find his lucha news here.

  10. @Arakas: If I’m wrong all the time, you really need to pick it up! You’re only posting once every two weeks! There are thirteen other days of mistakes I’m not finding out because you’re not angrily correcting me, this is very concerning.

    I made the correction up there.

    52MX had the expected matches.

  11. @thecubsfan: I never said you were wrong all the time. Since you were posting a sarcastic comment about it, I only wanted to see if that was accurate. Then I find it wasn’t. Also, nobody called ADR an ugly guy.

    I’m not here to criticize you and I don’t want any war with ya, but sometimes I see you posting sarcastic comments or mocking of some others but you don’t like people making observations of your work. That’s also very concerning.

  12. @Arakas: I totally want to see Sin Cara’s movies, that was not sarcastic. Also, I totally love people making observation of my work, that’s kind of the point of doing it.

    LATV has 05/08 Arena Mexico
    Metal Blanco, Metro, Palacio Negro vs Cancerbero, Raziel, Yoshihashi
    Felino, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas vs Black Warrior, Máximo, Strong Man

    so Fox and LATV have switched tapings, except Fox gets better matches than LATV got (and Galavision is getting a slightly worse match.)

  13. FWIW, my usual email notification about new comments has not been working right for the last couple of weeks. I have other ways of keeping track but if I miss something, try it again or get a hold of me in another format.

  14. Was this the GDL show that was supposed to be the best attended in a long time? Because I swear to god there are 40 people at most. Nobody is sitting anywhere beyond the fourth row.

  15. @Tim: Astro Boy thinks he’s Mascarita Dorada but I’d like to see him do that without Semental in the ring.

  16. Rush/Psicosis wasn’t too bad. Kinda short though. That women’s match was just awful. Goya Kong and La Nazi screwed up a Irish whip. Can CMLL send her to Ice Ribbon already?

  17. ACM has

    an unmasked Sombra Chicana (who looks like the Bulldog)
    an unmasked Super Parka
    a youngboy who lookws like he might have had two days of lucha training
    a fat man in a wife beater

    This is actually the best crowd in ACM in a while, too.

  18. Super Parka is wearing no mask, his Super Parka top, and Jack Evans length shorts, which do not at all match his top. If the referee turns on someone, this is the most Monterrey match that has ever occurred.

  19. Herodes can’t even take a bump and Guerrero Negro looks like he’s 9 months pregnant. This match is amazing. God Bless ACM. They outdrew Psicosis vs Rush BTW.

  20. Teleformula currently has
    05/09 Arena Puebla
    Rey Bucanero, Terrible, Texano vs La Máscara, Máscara Dorada, Máximo
    not sure what match 2 is. If there is a match 2?
