CMLL (FRI) 05/11/2012 Arena Mexico [CMLL]
1) Bobby Zavala & Disturbio b Hombre Bala Jr. & Super Halcon Jr.
Rudos took 2/3.
2) Astral, Fantasy, Último Dragoncito b Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Olímpico, Pequeño Violencia
Astral replaced Shockercito. Tecnicos took 1/3, Dragoncito over Violencia.
3) Black Warrior, Sagrado, Stuka Jr. DQ Misterioso Jr., Rey Escorpion, Shigeo Okumura
straight falls, Escorpion fouling Warrior in the second. Warrior demanded a hair match, and Escorpion actually agreed.
4) Niebla Roja b Triton [En Busca de un Idolo]
Triton scored a 21.
5) Dragon Lee DQ Euforia [En Busca de un Idolo]
Euforia may have refused to remove a submission. Judges scored him highly anyway.
6) Atlantis, Blue Panther, La Máscara b Rey Bucanero, Terrible, Último Guerrero
tecnicos took 2/3. Panther beat UG. Said to be a good match.
7) Psicosis, Volador Jr., Yujiro b Marco Corleone, Máximo, Rush
Volador pinned Maximo for the win.

Show included a Bucanero, Sensei, Mascara and Puma King dance show as a Mother’s Day treat.

CMLL has run a major show in June the last two years.
2011-06-17: La Mascara vs Averno
2010-06-06: Maximo vs Taichi

If they follow the same pattern, Escorpion vs Warrior is 3-5 weeks away, which makes this an especially early announcement. Perhaps there’s an already secretly scheduled press conference this week they needed to get out in front of? Priorities! There’s also the matter of Rey Escorpion vs Black Warrior not really being a drawing main event. They need another match, and there’s nothing else they’re building right now. The En Busca de un Idolo final looks to be 06/08 (if they’re still doing the trios match), but that’s not important enough to help. CMLL rarely does three important matches on the show, so Escorpion/Warrior is either the week before (06/01) or the week after (06/15).

Psicosis explains he’s definitely not defrauding the public by returning to his old mask. He’s just horribly burned by Joe Lider’s red flame of death from Neza and AAA gave him permission to wear his old mask while he recovers – and he may never heal! I guess that’s why he’s wearing the Psicsois gear too, since Lider torched him mostly on the shoulder and back, he must need something to cover those up as well. I’m not sure why the facial burns require him to be announced and billed as Psicosis instead of Nicho el Millionario; perhaps the emotional trauma is just too much for poor Psicosis! Anyway, Psicosis says he surely will not be wagering his mask in any battle with Joe Lider, but would like to have a career vs career match to end him forever. Psicosis also says he has no grudge or issue with anyone else who used this name, but they were never the star he was.

Rob has highlights of the 2012 Pequeno Reyes del Aire. That match was crazy. Pretty sure Bam Bam sat down and thought about what way he could break his tailbone, then went out there to do it.

Bill has highlights of 03/28/12 Arena Coliseo Monterrey, with Battman.
