CMLL (FRI) 06/24/2011 Arena Mexico [Cesar, CMLL, Record (1-4, 6), Record (5)]
1) Molotov & Super Halcon Jr. b Artillero & Súper Comando
Tecnicos win falls 1/3.
2) Dark Angel, Goya Kong, Marcela b Amapola, Estrellita, Princesa Sugheit
Tecnicas took 1/3, with Estrellita and Amapola arguing after mistakes cost them the match. Amapola is good, but I don’t know if she’s that good.
3) Misterioso Jr., Shigeo Okumura, Virus b Metro, Sagrado, Stuka Jr.
Rudos take fall 1/3, Virus finishing off Sagrado.
4) Pólvora b Valiente [lightning]
Polvora wins in 8:46 with a counter dropkick.
5) Atlantis, Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr. b Diamante, Hijo del Signo, Negro Casas [Forjando un Idolo]
Guerrero Maya took out Negro to win the first fall, Negro & Signo won the second, but Diamante was hurt, removed from the match, and later found to have fractured toes. Delta & Atlantis got in their finishes to take the match and the tournament.
6) La Máscara, Máximo, Super Porky DQ Averno, Dragón Rojo Jr., Último Guerrero
Straight falls for the tecnicos, Averno stripping Mascara’s mask for the DQ.
Zacarias appears to have a new black outfit, but I couldn’t find a good shot of it. Atlantis wins Forjando un Idolo the same week Rey Bucanero wins the NWA LH title, what an amazing coincidence all Ultimo Guerrero’s partners (and ex-partners) are doing so well right now.
The Averno/Mascara show also visited Arena Aficion on Thursday, another case of an arena being run on a non-regular day. This makes sense if they’re hurrying to get this shows in before Averno splits town, but that means everyone booking these shows knows he’s going soon.
Ras de Lona announced Arkangel would celebrate his 25th anniversary on the 07/16 Arena Coliseo show. Matches include a Tuareg vs Cancerbero cibernetico (!), and a main event of Atlantis, Negro Casas, Arkangel vs Mr. Cacao, La Mascara, La Sombra. Also, Niato says he’s in until the end of July, and hopes to win a championship and/or a Mexican woman.
