FdT vs Psychos vs Navarros, Mascara Dorada keeps his title, lineups changes

IWRG (SUN) 05/13/2012 Arena Naucalpan [DJ Spectro, Estrellas del Ring, The Gladiatores]
1) Imposible & Pacto Negro b Crosby & Johnny Rivera
Impossible replaced Comando Negro.
2) Chicano & Freelance b Alan Extreme & Suicida
Suicida replaced Imposible. Money was thrown in the ring after the match.
3) Argenis, Fenix (AAA), Súper Fly b 14K, Douki, Secret Sasuke
Super Fly german suplexed Sasuke for the win.
4) Angelico, Negro Navarro, Trauma I b Bestia 666, Eterno, Súper Nova
Team Navarro took 2/3. Damian 666 tried to interfere, but Trauma I shrugged him off and defeated Bestia.
5) Damián 666, Head Hunter I, X-Fly b Monster Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown
Crowd was behind the Psycho Circus. FdT took 1/3. Both refs were taken out in the last fall. Trauma I ran in to help the Clowns, but fouled Psycho by mistake, and Head Hunter splashed him for the pin. Clowns did not accept Trauma’s apology and they set up a Clowns vs Navarros trios.

DJ Spectro was very down on the top two matches, saying the semifinal went way too long and the Psycho Circus only know three moves.

CMLL (SUN) 05/13/2012 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [Fuego en el Ring]
1) Virgo b Relampago Azul
2) El Caudillo & Halcon de Plata b Exterminador & Infierno
Tecnicos won two straight.
3) Black Metal, Javier Cruz Jr., Leo DQ Barbaro Cavernario, Espectrum, Sádico
Javier Cruz Sr. was watching his son’s match. Rudos were DQed for excessive violence and kept going, so Cruz Sr. hit the ring for the saev. Evola ran out to help the rudos, and Evola and Cruz Sr. made hair match challenges.
4) Amapola & Tiffany b Marcela & Silueta
Tiffany must’ve cheated to beat Silueta, because Silueta demanded a singles match for next week.
5) Máscara Dorada b Mephisto [CMLL WELTER]
Dorada took 2/3 to keep the title. Said to be a very good match – Apolo Dantes called it one of the best matches in the arena in many years.

Rob has highlights of the 09/08/09 CMLL, 04/24/12 CMLL and Pequeno Reyes del Aires.

CMLL (SUN) 05/20/2012 Arena Mexico
1) Leono & Tigre Blanco vs Cholo & Inquisidor
2) Bam Bam, Eléctrico, Fantasy vs Mercurio, Pequeño Violencia, Pequeño Warrior
3) Fuego, Sagrado, Stuka Jr. vs Misterioso Jr., Pólvora, Sangre Azteca
4) Marco Corleone, Máximo, Rush vs Terrible, Último Guerrero, Yujiro
5) Dragón Rojo Jr. vs La Sombra [CMLL MIDDLE]
Dragon Rojo is the champion

Sombra just got, and lost, this title match in Puebla a month ago. CMLL does like to repeat title matches in different locations, but I can’t believe Sombra is actually going to lose this twice in a row. That’s very un-Sombra.

Sangre Azteca is back on the rudo side, teaming with the exact two guys who turned on him (Misterioso & Polvora.) I really wish CMLL was still a company that did promos, skits and interviews, because you probably could get some good ones of that. Who do we want as a new third of Poder Mexica? Is this Puma King’s spot? Signo?

CMLL (SUN) 05/20/2012 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) El Caudillo & Esfinge vs Acertijo & Metalik
2) Smaker vs Malefico
3) Javier Cruz Jr., Javier Cruz Sr., Leo vs Barbaro Cavernario, Èvola, Sádico
4) Silueta vs Tiffany
5) León Blanco, Rush, Valiente vs Exterminador, Felino, Mr. Niebla

3/4 are set up by last week. Leon Blanco and Exterminador in the main event makes sense, might as well make the local guys seem equal to the top ones.

Projected Air Date: 06/03

The night of champions show is in May after all. No tag titles of either variety, no world title for obvious reasons.

I have no earthly idea why the women’s match is a chain match, or what it could possibly add to that match. Perhaps we’ll all find out the reason together! I am moderately surprised the cruiserweight title match is not a ladder match – it doesn’t need to be one either, but it’s a thing AAA usually does just because. (Edit: it is an extreme match, so probably ladders anyway)

Octagoncito will be in Mascarita Dorada’s corner, while Mini Histeria will be in Mini Psicosis’ corner. If Dorada is sticking around, he might as well be champ. He still appears to be working for Santo’s promotion, which may be a hold up.

The only match I feel strongly about an outcome is the trios title match; Consejo really needs the win if they’re not just another midcard rudo act. They’re closing in on that already, Wagner costing Mascara the match won’t help.

The same few women are going to keep mixing and matching for the women’s title, so it doesn’t seem to mean much who’s champ. AAA’s done very little with the cruiserweight and Latin American titles, they might as well change hands if they other plans. Jack seems least likely to keep his title; either Teddy gets it to set up the rematch later, Psicosis gets it so he and Lider have another reason to never stop fighting each other, or Juvi gets it for being on good behavior for 3 months.
