CMLL (SUN) 06/05/2011 Arena Coliseo [Cesar, CMLL]
1) Enrique Vera Jr. & Sensei b Bobby Zavala & Ramstein
Sensei replaced the departed Astro Boy. Tecnicos took 2/3.
2) Starman, Tigre Blanco, Trueno b Bronco, Mortiz, Semental
Tecnicos took 1/3.
3) Ángel Azteca Jr., Ángel de Plata, Rey Cometa b Arkángel de la Muerte, Loco Max, Raziel
Raziel and Loco Max replaced Dr. X and Skandalo. Tecnicos took falls 2/3. Arkangel received medical attention after taking Cometa’s match winning 450 splash. Looks to be more of a stomp in the picture, Cesar says it ended up being knees to the chest.
4) Misterioso Jr., Negro Casas, Volador Jr. b Black Warrior, Blue Panther, Sagrado
Negro and Panther stills strongly feuding. Rudos took falls 1/3. Cesar is down on Volador for his ‘lack of training’ – CMLL wrestlers are required to practice multiple times a week, and that implies Volador has decided to pass on the requirement. He’s seemed less motivated here lately, and there are plenty of people will to speculate that he may be heading somewhere else, but nothing concrete.
5) Máximo, Rush, Super Porky b Mr. Niebla, Shinsuke Nakamura, Último Guerrero
Tecnicos took 2/3. Rush beat UG with a senton in the third, then challenged him to a heavyweight title shot. UG immediately accepted. This is what happens when they forget to build Fan Appreciation main events.
Ultimo Guerrero vs Rush is interesting match. Rush has been the super rookie of CMLL for the last couple years – much like Shinsuke Nakamura was in NJPW a while back, actually. Ultimo Guerrero is in the programming department and everything he’s touched lately has turned to gold (or small crystal, I guess.) UG is the favorite because status quo is the way CMLL goes, but it’s surprising they’d put either guy in a position where they could have a meaningful loss.
Naucalpan results tomorrow.
Caribbean Wrestling Mexico, the unknown promotion presenting at the Lucha Libre Expo, talked to Record about it’s very short history and it’s plans; it’s surprising there isn’t already a group running regularly around Cancun, capitalizing on tourist dollars.
LuchaWorld has Best of the Super Juniors highlights including Mascara Dorada, a recap of yesterday’s AAA TV and KrisZ’s nwes update.
SuperLuchas #416 has an interview with Tinieblas.
Luchas 2000 #573 has LA Park & Psycho Clown on the cover, with a tease of an Averno saying he’s got a firm contract and will not be going to WWE. Wonder if that one has a quote from Dr. Karonte Sr.
- Estrellas del Ring has an interview with La Mascara at Arena Mexico, so they’re letting someone in the media though the door. SuperLuchas mentioned CMLL threatened to ban Box Y Lucha this week.
- SuperLuchas has handheld video of Perros vs Psychos cage match from the Perros Anniversary show.
- Also, an interview with the new Hijo de Rey Misterio.
- There’s a lucha libre photo exhibit in Los Angeles.
- Lucha libre was featured in the Ensenda Art Walk.
- Cesar looks at this week’s NWA LH contenders and speculates on opponents for Nakamura.
- WagnerMania looks back at Mistico/Dos/Lizmark vs Los Perros

IWRG (SUN) 06/12/2011 Arena Naucalpan
1) Centurión & Dragon Fly vs Alan Extreme & Keshin Black
2) Dinamic Black, Golden Magic, Suicida vs Carta Brava Jr., Comando Negro, Imposible
3) Black Terry, Hijo del Pantera, Multifacético vs Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro
4) Pantera, Super Crazy, Veneno vs ?, Fresero Jr., Máscara Año 2000 Jr.
I guess Black Terry is in the semimain to make sure the whole tecnico team doesn’t get booed?
Super Crazy is random.
