CMLL (FRI) 07/01/2011 Arena Mexico [CMLL]
1) Leono & Metálico b Bobby Zavala & Camorra
Leono eliminated Camorra, Zavala eliminted Leono, and Metalico beat Zavala for the win.
2) Dalys la Caribeña, Lluvia, Marcela b Amapola, Estrellita, Tiffany
Dalis replaced Luna, who missing this week. Straight falls for the tecnicas when Amapola and Estrellita had problems again – this time, Amapola accidentally missile dropkicked Estrellita. Not sure who’s side Tiffany took.
3) Rey Cometa TLDRAW Hijo del Signo [lightning]
10 minute time limit draw!
4) Misterioso Jr., Pólvora, Shigeo Okumura b Metal Blanco, Palacio Negro, Valiente
Rudos took falls 1/3. After Metal Blanco and Palacio Negro did their dives, Valiente and frequent nemesis Polvora were left in. Polvora tried a rope bounce powerbomb, Valiente reversed it to a huracarrana, Polvora rolled thru and grabbed the bottom rope for the three count.
5) Atlantis, Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr. DQ Felino, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas
Rudos took fall 1, tecnicos took fall 2. End came down to Guerrero Maya going for the Cerebina, Negro escaping (using an eye rake?), snapping Maya’s arm over the top rope and putting on a cross armbreaker. Maya gave, but Negro refused to let go and lost by disqualification. Atlantis, who was awarded the Copa Bobby Bonales before the match, challenged Negro after.
6) Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto b La Máscara, La Sombra, Máscara Dorada
Mascara Dorada has new music. Rudos won when Mephisto – already eliminated – fouled Mascara while he was putting Averno in la campana. Averno got the pin.
Ras de Lona was at the gym for no reason (except maybe they got paid.) Averno can cut a promo and work on his arms at the same time. Panico & Guerrero del Futuro, not at the gym and looking like they got brought in on short notice, talked about Friday night shows coming back to Guadalajara. I presume that means Sunday shows will indeed by all local wrestlers, but that’s not been said. Dragon Lee was back talking about the Tapatios, so he may be part of that feud again. Diamante’s toe injury looks like a freak thing, just his foot being twisted, not someone stepping or landing on it like you’d guess for a foot injury. His entire right foot is in a cast. (No one’s signed it.) Yoshihashi said he was working with Franco Colombo – I thought he was training the pre-teens? Estrellita’s talked about how she could be either ruda or tecnica, so she’s going tecnica soon, and Amapola threatened to take Estrellita’s hair if she did not shape up.
Black Terry Jr. has photos from Friday’s EAW show. Looks like they actually drew something less than 7,000.
The missing Santo film is scheduled to air, this time in a mid July film festival. Last time it was supposed to be shown for the first time in 40 years, this March, El Hijo del Santo successfully blocked it from being aired.
There’s a second trailer for tomorrow’s IWL iPPV. I should be around, so I’ll try to run a chat for those interested.
- Record interviews Lily Fighter, who’s a model in her other job and says her name came from the King of Fighting character.
- The press conference for the Veracruz AAA Corona talent search contest didn’t really add much new for us, though it sounds like the TV taping main event is Bizarros vs Inframundo.
- Sin Cara thinks Averno coming to WWE is a good idea. I hope so!
- The number of shows in Nuevo Laredo are well down this year, from 32 to 14.
- DJ Spectro looks back at Rey Jr. vs Hijo del Santo and Los Destructores vs Los Pandilleros
- Segunda Caida starts the Complete & Accurate Pirata Morgan with matches from this year, 2004, and 1992.
CMLL (FRI) 07/08/2011 Arena Mexico
1) Starman & Trueno vs Disturbio & Zayco
2) Dalys la Caribeña, Dark Angel, Goya Kong vs Amapola, Estrellita, Princesa Blanca
3) Eléctrico vs Pequeño Nitro [lightning]
4) Hijo del Fantasma, Stuka Jr., Valiente vs Euforia, Pólvora, Virus
5) Naito, Psicosis, Volador Jr. vs Dragón Rojo Jr., Rey Escorpion, Último Guerrero
6) La Máscara, La Sombra, Máscara Dorada vs Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto
On his most recent podcast, Dr. Lucha said he heard Averno was due to WWE on 07/11. That’s about a week later that I had heard, but it’d explain why he was still around for this (and why they didn’t just have him lose last night.) Ras de Lona had Rush in Mascara Dorada’s spot.
Robert noted this was Volador’s first Friday night appearance since April 22nd. And it’s not lasting more than one week, since he’s in GDL next Friday (and teaming with Ultimo Guerrero against Psicosis – good work.) Mr. Aguila was listed in Psicosis’ spot on Ras de Lona
I wonder how the women’s match will end!
CMLL (SUN) 07/17 Arena Coliseo
1) Dalys la Caribeña & Lady Afrodita vs La Comandante & Mima Shimoda
2) Dr. X, Hooligan, Loco Max, Nitro, Skándalo vs Cancerbero, Euforia, Pólvora, Raziel, Virus [cibernetico]
3) Ephesto, Mephisto, Shigeo Okumura vs Stuka Jr., Toscano, Valiente
4) La Máscara, La Sombra, Mr. Cacao vs Arkángel de la Muerte, Atlantis, Negro Casas
Lineup via MT. I bet Arkangel liked the idea of teaming up with Atlantis and Negro a lot better before they started feuding.
Please air the cibernetico.
Lady Afrodita turns up on indy shows a few times in the last 12 months with the DTU/Lucha POP girls, though never on one of those specifically. I presume she’s an Arkangel trainee.
