PdM (SUN) 07/24/2011 Centro Banamex [Estrellas del Ring, Mi Lucha Libre (3), Mi Lucha Libre (4), Mi Lucha Libre (5), Mi Lucha Libre (6), R de Rudo (2-6), R de Rudo (3), Record (1-5), Record (6), The Gladiatores]
1) Drastik Boy, Ek Balam, Low Rider b Dinastía, Kaleth, Konami
Kaleth replaced Hagen.
2) Turbo b Black Thunder [NWA MEX LIGHT]
Turbo kept his title with a campana.
3) Mr. Aguilita b Celestial, Cósmico, Mini Talisman [PdM MINI]
The only four minis in the promotion battled for the new minis title. Cosmico & Talisman were eliminated, and Aguilita got Celestial with a reverse plancha.
4) Bestia 666 b Hijo de LA Park, Tony Rivera, Zumbi, Pesadilla, Peligro [PdM LH]
Bestia beat Pesadilla via valagueza to become the first Perros del Mal champion.
5) X-Fly b Super Crazy [MEX HEAVY]
X-Fly retained his title via Swanton bomb.
6) Blue Demon Jr., Casandro, LA Park NC Damián 666, el Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Halloween
Perro returned, but still is never taking off his shirt. Referee Toby, helping the perros was relieved of his shirt, revealing a painted up chest like Felino’s done. Cassandro did a dive off the TV screen. Usual Perros/LA Park style out of control brawl. The commissioner tried to stop the match, but first Bestia 666 ran down with a tray. LA Park teased hitting Bestia with it, then turned on his partners and allied with the Perros. Commissioner stopped for the match (seems more like an out of doing a finish than the match actually being shut down.) Demon and Perro did many challenges, got nowhere.
DTU (SUN) 07/24/2011 Centro Banamex [MT, Record, The Gladiatores]
1) Kalek b Extreme Boy, Hacker, Ivan el Campeon, Arsenal, Kalibus, Jonkhy [DTU Academia]
2) Vanely b Lily Fighter, Yuki Star, Shitara, La Vaquerita, Sherry, Sexy Flor, Chica Tormenta [Chica Tercera Caida]
This was originally the DTU women’s title, but then became a title sponsored by the wrestling recap show. (Does this mean I can sponsor titles?) Of note, Chica Tormenta was DQed for both bringing in a weapon and then trying to martinete Lily Fighter. Those two continue to feud.
3) Rey Latino b Tacuvo, Ciclope, Super Mega, Muerte Bucanera, Araña de Plata, Extreme Warrior, Bad Boy [#1 Contenders, DTU EXTREMO]
This seems to have replaced the match with Fenix and Dark Dragon
4) Flamita b Yakuza [DTU Alto Rendimento]
Flamita kept the title.
5) Daga, Hormiga, Paranoiko b Judas el Traidor, Onita Santana, Sadico and Black Mamba, Silencio, Silver Tiger and Black Terry, Eterno, Hijo del Pantera
listed as triangle tag, ended up a four way trios. That’s the way of this card, with much different people. A Promocion Cantu trio from Nuevo Laredo was added, Eterno and Daga had been a team but were split up among DTU and IWRG lines, etc.
6) Samurai del Sol b Drastik Boy, Zumbi, Violento Jack, Shiima Xion
GALLI rep beat got the win, pinning Shiima after Xion almost had Violento Jack beat. Violento Jack and Tigre Cota attakced him post match.
Look at all those links for recaps of the Perros del Mal show and for the DTU show. I can’t find a single one on the AAA show. I think everyone just went over to the normal IWRG show.
Black Terry Jr. has another 200+ photos from the second day of the Expo.
The Gladiatores talked to Lady Puma.
Medio Tiempo had a good time.
SuperLuchas has video from the first day.
The Expo drew 23,253 fans over two days. I have not tracked down last year’s number, but that sounds comparable, and they had one less day. The 3,000 seat stands for the major shows seem overfilling.
IWRG (SUN) 07/24/2011 Arena Naucalpan [Black Terry Jr. (flickr), The Gladiatores]
1) Alan Extreme & Imposible b Rolling Boy & Saruman
2) Bugambilia del Norte, Dragon Fly, Tritón DQ Carta Brava Jr., King Drako, Polifacético
Reached the fifteen minute time limit, but the rudos kept attacking, so they were just disqualified.
3) Black Terry, Centurión, Turbo DQ Dr. Cerebro, Oficial Fierro, Oficial Spartans
Centurion, Turbo, and Oficial Spartans replaced Argos, Bobby Lee Jr., and Oficial AK47. Black Terry and Dr. Cerebro are no longer friends and are feuding. Cerebro fouled Terry for the DQ.
4) Avisman, El Hijo del Diablo, Kid USA b Dinamic Black, Golden Magic, Veneno
Xion joined the Gringos for the US national anthem. Tecnico trio represents the Revolucionarios. Kid USA used a ref distraction to hit Veneno with a bottle, and Diablo got hte pin.
5) Angelico, Hijo del Dr. Wagner Jr., Multifacético b Hijo de LA Park, Oficial 911, Shiima Xion
Rudos took the first, tecnicos took the second, Wagner dived on Park in the third while Angelico & Multifacetico beat Xion & 911 for the win.
I am told Kid USA is someone from the United States who has not been in IWRG previously but whose name would be known by those who read this blog. And that’s all I’m giving you until they give away clues.
Diamante is listed on the July 28th Arena Olimpico Laguna card, so he should be back in main CMLL rings soon.
Spain’s MarcaTV is now airing CMLL shows. I’d assume they are the same one hour tapes that have been making their way from France to England to Canada to Africa (yes, the entire continent) and are headed to the fourth moon of Saturn before long. I was told a few weeks back that the French outlet that buys the CMLL TV got in a new shipment of a years worth of TV, so some slightly newer television might start matriculating around the globe soon.
- SuperLuchas has video of this past weekend’s GALLI show.
CMLL (SUN) 07/31/2011 Arena Coliseo
1) Aereo & Pequeño Halcón vs Mercurio & Pequeño Universo 2000
2) Enrique Vera Jr., Super Halcon Jr., Trueno vs Inquisidor, Rayo Tapatío I, Rayo Tapatío II
3) Goya Kong, Lady Apache, Luna Mágica vs La Comandante, La Seductora, Princesa Blanca
4) Blue Panther, Metal Blanco, Valiente vs Misterioso Jr., Shigeo Okumura, Yoshihashi
5) La Máscara, Máscara Dorada, Shocker vs El Alebrije, Héctor Garza, Volador Jr.
Main event should be more with Garza and the Invasors. Bonus: find out if Volador is with the Invasors or against them this week!
Remember when we were miffed that Metal Blanco & Palacio Negro were not counted as Gen11? Maybe that was just me? Anyway, look where Metal Blanco is, look where they are. The GDL duo dodged a bullet by not being included in the remedial class.
Tercera would be Lady Apache’s return. Luna Magica has been missing shows a lot lately.
The Gen11/Rayo Tapatios feud has been cut back to being once every four weeks. This happens when you’re not very good.
CMLL (SUN) 07/31/2011 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) El Alteño vs Gran Kenut
2) Pegasso, Rey Cometa, Sensei vs Loco Max, Puma King, Tiger

4) Black Warrior, Máximo, Super Porky vs Felino, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas
5) Dragón Rojo Jr. & Último Guerrero vs Mr. Águila & Psicosis [CMLL TAG]
Yea, this is going to get killed against Verano de Escandalo.
