Fuego’s recap has a cover photo of a 90% unmasked Ultimo Guerrero. Dragon Rojo’s been out for a week now, and is only booked on the Rey Escorpion benefit show going forward. Something serious?

Forjando un Idolo

On this week’s CMLL Galavision show, they were still promoting this Friday as the tournament final, as well as hyping Shocker’s return for this show. (The other shows had the corrected date; even if the main show is airing a week behind, it seems like it’s being done mostly live.)

CMLL in Japan

NJPW announced Shinsuke Nakamura would be coming to CMLL from May 27 to June 27th. Much like Gigante Bernard last year, this is a NJPW top heavyweight coming over while the smaller guys take over for the Best of the Super Junior. Nakamura was in CMLL back in September 2005 for a month. No idea who he’s gong to work with; he feels like a trickier guy to fit in CMLL than others.

NJPW also announced Mascara Dorada would be hanging around after a couple weeks after the Best of the Super Jr. tournament concludes, as he’s part of their trios tournament taking place June 21 to June 23. This does make it unlikely the Universal Tournament will be taking place in June, since that’ll up Dorada, Taguchi and Lyger for the entire month – unless they all exit the tournament early. Dorada is teaming with Hiroshi Tanahashi & KUSHIDA.

Reina #2 (05/16) Result
5) Yumiko Hotta & Seuxis [O] b Tomoka Nakagawa & Silueta [X]

Other News

X-Fly retained his Perros del Mal Extreme Championship by DQ in Tala, Jalisco.

This week’s Super Luchas mentions Rey Trueno & Mr. Trueno lost their Pacific Coast Tag Team Championships to Kempo Dragon and Relampago (the one based in Sinola, not the AAA one).

A local previews lists Milicia vs Dark Family and Psycho Circus vs Los Maniaquia as part of the AAA World Trios Tournament. They could do two more teams in Toluca and semifinals on the taping(s) pre-TripleMania and the final on the big show. Figuring we’re getting a Perros and Bizarros team. Maybe Air Force/Elegido and 187/Electroshock or Metal?

AAA’s website mentions they’ll be taping on June 4 in Arena Neza. That may be the last taping before TripleMania. The last time AAA taped in Arena Neza, as best I can figure, is 1997. (Though it’s definitely possibly I’ve got tapings just listed as Neza instead of the arena.) AAA’s drawn well there without TV taping; it’s not a big building, so that’s an easy sellout and hot crowd.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.


CMLL (SUN) 05/22/2011 Arena Coliseo
1) Bam Bam & Pequeño Halcón vs Pequeño Universo 2000 & Pequeño Warrior
2) Guerrero Maya Jr., Hombre Bala Jr., Super Halcon Jr. vs Puma King, Rayo Tapatío I, Rayo Tapatío II
3) Molotov, Pegasso, Rey Cometa vs Euforia, Hooligan, Loco Max
4) Black Warrior, Metal Blanco, Palacio Negro vs Ephesto, Felino, Misterioso II
5) La Máscara, Máximo, Super Porky vs Héctor Garza, Mr. Niebla, Volador Jr.

52MX looks like a fun good show. I like an idea of Warrior as big brother to Metal Blanco & Palacio Negro, assuming CMLL is going to do anything at all with Black Warrior (which really seems doubtful so far – they never even really did anything with the Averno feud.) It seems more likely Palacio & Metal will drift aimlessly without a trios partner, but just a step higher than Pegasso & Rey Cometa.

CMLL has Super Halcon Jr. and a Pequeno Halcon, except the Pequeno Halcon is not doing the same Halcon character. If that sounded confusing, it’s because it is.

CMLL (SUN) 05/22/2011 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Meteoro vs Relampago
2) Astaroth & Hierro vs Evola & Infierno
3) Mascarita Dorada & Shockercito vs Demus 3:16 & Pierrothito
4) Ángel de Oro, Máscara Dorada, Sangre Azteca, Stuka Jr. vs Mephisto, Shigeo Okumura, Vangelis, Yoshihashi
5) La Sombra vs Último Guerrero [CMLL HEAVY]

THAT is a main event. That is actually a really good show, wonder who else is running in GDL.
