Averno/Mascara, Cassandro wins an NWA title, GDL


CMLL (SUN) 06/26/2011 Arena Coliseo [Cesar, CMLL, Record]
1) Semental & ZaycoBengala & Freesbe
2) Astral, Bam Bam, EléctricoMercurio, Pequeño Universo 2000, Pequeño Violencia
Astral replaced Pequeno Halcon, who was also listed as working in La Laguna on Sunday. Mercurio’s return to action. Tecnicos took 2/3.
3) Euforia, Inquisidor, Loco MaxDragon Lee, Rey Cometa, Sensei
CMLL.com says Dragon Lee returned from an injury that almost cost him his career. Huh. I assume they mean his post-Forjando absence, and not something that happened between now and the cibernetico he was in. Rudos took first, tecnicos took second, Eufroia got Cometa with a powerbomb in the third, and Cometa was stretchered out.
4) Ephesto, Shigeo Okumura, Shinsuke Nakamura DQ Dr. X, Histeria, Psicosis
Dr. X replaced Hector Garza, so this was a bit of random rudos. Team Ephesto won the first, Team Psicosis won the second, Psicosis fouled Nakamura for the DQ.
5) Averno, Último Guerrero, Volador Jr.Black Warrior, Blue Panther, La Máscara
Rudos took 1/3. Averno got away with a mask pull on La Mascara in the third. Mascara challenged him to a mask vs hair match, but Averno refused.

Blue Demon Jr. has had a busy weekend. On the Lucha Future shows in England, he’s held a NWA championship match: Casandro defeated Dr. Cerebro for the NWA Welterweight Championship. This is the same championship Sombra holds in CMLL, though both sides are ignoring each other (and/or pretending “Historic” makes it mean something different.) I think this is basically meaningless, because it’ll get defended about as much times as the CHIKARA title Casandro holds. In an interview with SuperLuchas, Demon talks about also deciding a lightweight champion and tag team champions. Demon also boasts about using younger wrestlers in the main event on this tour (he is, but that’s also because most of the guys on the tour are young guys) and mentions a desire to go into politics after wrestling, though he implies he’s got at least a decade longer in the sport. I can see him making the transition very well.

SuperLuchas #419 also has an interview with Pato Soria, who talks about improvements at Arena Coliseo Guadalajara and would like to change the weekly schedule around a bit: start running with DF wrestlers on Friday nights, then run shows with only local wrestlers on Sundays. It’s not a definite, just an idea.

An AAA/Perros show at Arena Neza may have drawn less than 100 people on Saturday. The Mexico/USA Copa de Oro final and rain is blamed; AAA’s been drawing well here, including a full TV taping.

NOAH announced the blocks for it’s junior heavyweight tag team tournament.
A: Jack Evans &  Aerostar, KENTA & Kanemaru, Ishimori & Sabre, Kenou & Kenbai, Takaiwa & Namiguchi
B: Ricky & Rocky Marvin, Kotaro Suzuki & Aoki, Nakajima & Kajiwara, Kotoge & Harada, Eddie Edwards & Delirous

2011 AAA TV Chart
Projected Air Date (#996)
Mexico: 07/10
US: ??????????

Lineup via MT. First post TripleMania taping.

Main event team is just listed as “Perros del Mal”, but that seems to be the trio going forward.

Nicho in the tercera makes no sense seeing as they just suspended him, but I suspect that’ll be the story at the start of the match, not something they’ve forgot.

Pasion Kristal’s last AAA TV appearance was November 2009.

Next taping is 07/09 in Veracruz. TNA wrestlers are expected in for that show.
