CMLL (MON) 04/30/2012 Arena Puebla [Porra Fresa]
1) Lestat, Milenium, Tigre Rojo Jr. b Arissma, King Jaguar, Policeman
tecnicos took 2/3.
2) Bronco, Inquisidor, Puma King b Höruz, Metatrón, Stigma
Rudos took 2/3.
3) Namajague, Vangelis, Virus b Delta, Sagrado, Stuka Jr.
Tecnicos took 1/3.
4) Máximo, Rush, Super Porky b Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto
Straight falls for the tenicos.
5) Dragón Rojo Jr. b La Sombra [CMLL MIDDLE]
Dragon took 1/3 to keep the title. He looked better than the prior week.
There was no on En Busca de Un Idolo web show, as had been previously mentioned. C3’s Karla did mention on Twitter that Euforia defeated Diamante and Titan & Niebla Roja went to a time limit draw. Not sure when they’ll be revealing these results – maybe on this week’s C3 show?
AAA’s posted a NotiAAA segment on their YouTube channel. (Did this air? Planning to watch AAA tonight.) It’s great that they’re finally doing this. In the five minute bit, Mesias’ surgery is shown. The doctor says he’ll be good in three months. Mesias walking around in real life in a sleeveless jacket is the most notable thing in this segment. Also, it appears La Parka rejoined the tecnico side because Dorian stood him up for a meeting. I’d do the same. There’s a Jeff & Karen Jarrett promo at the end (and nothing after it), just advising you.
CMLL.com posted a mean foreigner Yujiro promotion, perhaps to remind us that he’s the guy from No Limit we’re not supposed to like. CMLL needs to do Yujiro versus Diamante Azul trios for a long while. (Diamante Azul actually safely German suplexed Dragon Rojo on Cadena3 this week, it was amazing.)
Rob has highlights of 05/06/11 CMLL and May 96 AAA, but the most important thing is his ranking of the CMLL luchadors. There’s a lot I agree with, though Hijo del Signo is way too low. Rob says he’s doing the women and minis later, but I want a ranking of the CMLL referee too.
- Angel de la Noche took Caporal’s hair.
- Fuego en el Ring interviews Demus 3:16 (or Demus 3:16 just does a promo)
- Daga hypes up his match in Merida.
- Samurai del Sol talks about the Lucha Va Voom show in Chicago – and they reveal his real name, gasp!
- Psycho Circus say this is the first time they’ll be in Merida for TV. That doesn’t seem right, but actually is.
- Hype for Lucha Libre USA on May 11th mentions they’re currently filming a third season. They were actually into the third season when they stopped taping, last year.
- The Elegido, Hector Garza, Toscano, Hijo del Ninja match is actually a four way, not a tag match.
- AAA luchadors were part of a (sponsor) COMEX Day of the Painter party at Six Flags.
- The IWL/AAA/DTU show is now called Euforia, presumably to honor the Gran Alternativa champion.
- Hijo del Climax vows to defend his championship against challengers from all promotions.
CMLL (TUE) 05/08/2012 Arena Mexico
1) Robin & Soberano Jr. vs Apocalipsis & Cholo
2) Lluvia, Luna Mágica, Silueta vs La Seductora, Lady Afrodita, Tiffany
3) Ángel Azteca Jr., Hombre Bala Jr., Titán vs Cancerbero, Raziel, Virus
4) Dragon Lee vs Puma King [En Busca de un Idolo]
5) Triton vs Pólvora [En Busca de un Idolo]
6) Hijo del Fantasma, Super Porky, Valiente vs Ephesto, Euforia, Mephisto
7) Diamante Azul, La Sombra, Máscara Dorada vs Kráneo, Mr. Águila, Psicosis
I see Diamante Azul is going for his biggest suplex yet.
It’s weird seeing Busca members on Busca shows in non tournament action. Titan vs Cancerberos should be fun.
Lady Afrodita debuted back on the Arkangel tribute show last year (as a tecnica), immediately went to REINA, came back, and went back in to the group of trainees who aren’t quite ready enough to make TV yet, so it’s been a long time since CMLL matches for her.
