CMLL (FRI) 07/08/2011 Arena Mexico [CMLL, La Catedral (2), La Catedral (4), La Catedral (5-1), La Catedral (5-2), La Catedral (6), MT]
1) Disturbio & Zayco b Starman & Trueno
Final fall came down to eliminations. Trueno eliminated Zayco, Disturbio eliminated Trueno, and Disturbio pinned Starman after Zayco pulled off Starman’s mask from the outside.
2) Dalys la Caribeña, Goya Kong, Lluvia b Amapola, Estrellita, Princesa Blanca
Lluvia replaced Dark Angel. In the third fall, Estrellita screwed up, Blanca and Amapola attakced her, and the tecnicas cradled them for the win. Estrellita hugged a very confused Lluvia (and also the other two) and celebrated with the tecnicas after the match. The new title belt was shown before the match; it’s green!
3) Pequeño Nitro b Eléctrico [lightning]
Odd finish. Nitro dropkicked a seated Electrico, covered, and Electrico kicked out at 2.9999999. Bestia Negra counted him down early. Electrico threw a fit all the way to backstage.
4) Euforia, Pólvora, Virus b Hijo del Fantasma, Stuka Jr., Valiente
Tecnicos took the first, rudos the last two. Polvora beat Valiente clean this week, and challenged for a title shot.
5) Naito, Psicosis, Volador Jr. b Dragón Rojo Jr., Rey Escorpion, Último Guerrero
With Naito taking out UG on a dive, Naito & Psicosis beat the other two.
6) Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto b La Máscara, La Sombra, Máscara Dorada
Straight falls for the rudos, who challenged for the trios titles next week.
Dark Angel says she’s missed the last two days of shows due to facial paralysis.
Ras de Lona included JCR trying to stir up trouble between Soberano Jr. and Euforia. Interviews with all the feuding people you’d expect, pushing the trios title match before it was official. I think Estrellita talked for a minute straight with stopping for a breath or anything else.

CMLL (FRI) 07/15/2011 Arena Mexico
1) Bengala, Enrique Vera Jr., Tigre Blanco vs Apocalipsis, Bronco, Disturbio
2) Estrellita, Goya Kong, Marcela vs Amapola, Princesa Sugheit, Tiffany
3) Valiente vs Pólvora [MEX WELTER]
4) Ángel de Oro, Atlantis, Delta vs Mr. Niebla, Naito, Negro Casas
5) La Máscara, La Sombra, Máscara Dorada vs Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto [CMLL TRIOS]
Pretty loaded card for the same night they’re kicking off Friday shows in Guadalajara.
I am not sure what’s going on with Averno. Theories:
- Averno’s not going to WWE. I still believe he is. Believe is not strong enough – too many people have actually stated that Averno’s going to WWE for everyone to be wrong.
- Averno’s getting a day pass from Florida. WWE has been pretty insistent on guys coming working their agreed upon dates elsewhere before coming in, so maybe this is just the last (or second to last) date he’s agreed to – he could report to FCW and come down to finish off here. Averno is going seven days between matches this week (Friday to Friday), that’s only happened once prior this year. He’s been working near constantly the last month in matches versus La Mascara; for that just to stop means something is up.
- Averno’s not actually showing up for this match. Hey, what better way to kickstart a new Hijos de Averno then by having someone replace Averno and the team win the trios titles in their first time out. (Inquisidor is not busy. Though I’d prefer Euforia.)
5) La Mascara, La Sombra, Brazo de Plata vs Averno, Psicosis, Olimpico
which couldn’t have ever worked since Toscano and Psicosis are in GDL next Friday.
AAA IWL (FRI) 08/12/2011 Plaza de Toros, Huamantla, Tlaxaca
1) Freelance, Suicida, Turbo vs Centinela, Ojo Diabolico, Último Vampiro

5) El Mesías, Electroshock, La Parka vs Monster Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown
This is not an iPPV but interesting for the mask/hair match. Veneno, Tony, Angel o Demonio or Cerbero Negro?
