1) Bronco & Inquisidor b Enrique Vera Jr. & Höruz
2) Demus 3:16, Pequeño Olímpico, Pierrothito b Bam Bam, Fantasy, Mascarita Dorada
Olimpico & Pierrothtio submitted Fantasy & Bam Bam for the win.
3) Estrellita, Goya Kong, Marcela b Amapola, Princesa Sugheit, Tiffany
tecnicas took last two, Estrellita beating Amapola in the last with an inverted figure four. This sets up a title match next week.
4) Palacio Negro b Cancerbero [lightning]
win in 8:34 for Palacio Negro via moonsault legdrop
5) Hijo del Fantasma, La Máscara, Rush b Averno, Rey Bucanero, Terrible
Rudos were DQed in the first for throwing La Mascara over the top rope, Mascara pinned Averno with the Devil’s Wings in the second. Averno had previous tried for the campana, which beat Mascara last week. They agreed to a NWA Middleweight title match next week.
6) Atlantis, Héctor Garza, Último Guerrero b Mr. Niebla, Naito, Negro Casas
Naito ate an Atlantis moonsault and Negro Casas ran into an Atlantida for the loss.

Amapola losing the title to Estrellita would be horrible. Even Tim has to agree with me on this.

Lucha Libre Expo

The Lucha Libre Expo kicks off today. IWRG and CMLL have their shows tonight. CMLL is presenting their 2010 awards as well. Can’t miss show of the day has to be the 15:30 “Show de Perico”.

Their website has an prosaic interview with Estrellita

Universal writes about five matches worth seeing.

Other News

the Women of Wrestling podcast has an interview with Hailey Hatred. It’s a good interview, and around the 42 minute mark, she talks about the situation where she was banned by the Monterrey lucha libre commission for being too many characters at once. Monterrey  is the most unlikely place to be punished for that.

Shocker is filming some sort of reality show. He’s mentioned going home to Guadalajara for it on his twitter account, and they’ll be taping at the expo tonight.

Rob has highlights from this year’s TripleMania.

CMLL (FRI) 07/29/2011 Arena Mexico

5) Averno vs La Máscara [NWA MIDDLE]

The Leyenda de Azul tournament, of all the things in the world. This is the seventh version. The last tournament was run in 2008, which Terrible won. Blue Demon feels he owns this tournament name and will complain about it; between it and the main event having an NWA title, it’s a good week for Demon complaining.

Averno vs La Mascara has no effect on the Universal tournament, since they’d both still have a championship regardless of the finish.
