CMLL (FRI) 07/15/2011 Arena Mexico [Cesar, CMLL]
1) Bengala, Enrique Vera Jr., Molotov b Apocalipsis, Bronco, Disturbio
Molotov replaced Tigre Blanco. Tecnicos took 2/3
2) Amapola, Princesa Sugheit, Tiffany b Estrellita, Goya Kong, Marcela
Estrellita was dressed as Red Riding Hood. Rudos were DQed for excessive violence on Amapola in the first fall, and Estrellita pinned Amapola in the second fall. Estrellita challenged Amapola to a title match, but Amapola said Estrellita wasn’t on her level.
3) Pólvora b Valiente [MEX WELTER]
Valiente took the first, Polvora won a quick second, Polvora won the third with a Storm Cradle Driver. Inquisidor was his second, and acknowledged as his brother by radiocmll.
4) Mr. Niebla, Naito, Negro Casas b Ángel de Oro, Atlantis, Delta
Rudos took 1/3, Negro stealing Atlantis’ mask (and not being caught by Tirantes) to set up the win.
5) Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto b La Máscara, La Sombra, Máscara Dorada [CMLL TRIOS]
Rudos took the first, Sombra pinned Averno to take the second, Ephesto surprisingly eliminated Ephesto and Mascara got Ephesto. Dorada took out Mephisto with a dive, which left Averno and Mascara in. The match ended with a campana – but it was Averno applying it to Mascara for the shocking win and title switch.

I have no idea! Very confused by the main event finish. Trios title change gets CMLL to 16 champions.

Super X (FRI) 07/15/2011 Arena Azteca Budokan [Black Terry Jr. (flickr), Estrellas del Ring]
1) Durango Kid & Tornado b Íkaro & Radamantis
Durango Kid lives.
2) Eterno b Daga
Before the match, Oriental & Zumbido challenged these to team up and face them at some later date.
4) Angelico, Súper Nova, Zumbi b Histeria II, Oriental, Zumbido
Angelico was the surprise luchador. Shiima Xion was at the show, at least in photos squaring off against Angelico to hype their Lucha POP match.
5) Solar I & Trauma I DQ Villano IV & Villano V
Trauma replaced his dad. Started out as a technical match, ended in a brawl. Villano V took Trauma’s mask for the DQ.
6) Super Crazy b Juventud Guerrera [NWE CRUISER]
Juvi performed with the band, but was attacked by Crazy and they brawled around for a hardcore match. Super Crazy powerbombed Juvi on chairs twice for the win. Title is mentioned as the Super X championship, which may still be the NWE Cruisierweight Championship.

The advertised women’s title tournament match (Rossy vs Marcela) doesn’t seem to have happened in any form.
