CMLL (FRI) 05/25/2012 Arena Mexico [CMLL, Kaiser Sports]
1) Camaleón & Höruz b Camorra & Ramstein
Camaleon replaced Tigre Blanco. Tecnicos took 1/3.
2) Mercurio, Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Olímpico DQ Aereo, Astral, Eléctrico
Electrico replaced Bam Bam. Rudos took the first, tecnicos took the second, and Nitro fouled Aereo just as Aereo yanked Nitro’s mask. Referee called it for the rudos.
3) La Seductora, Princesa Sugheit, Tiffany DQ Dark Angel, Goya Kong, Lady Apache
Straight falls. Seductora annoyed Goya Kong enough to cause Goya to shove the referee down for the DQ. Goya demanded a mask vs mask match. Seductora did not answer.
4) Ephesto b Stuka Jr. [lightning]
Add late in the week for TV purposes. Ephesto won in 9 minutes.
5) Kráneo, Psicosis, Rey Escorpion DQ Black Warrior, Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr.
Straight falls, Warrior fouled Escorpion in the last. Black Warrior acted more rudo to prove he could be use both tecnico & rudo tactics against Escorpion next week, and then taunted Escorpion.
6) Atlantis, Diamante, Dragon Lee b Euforia, Titán, Último Guerrero [En Busca de un Idolo]
Team Atlantis took falls 2/3. Guerrero tossed Dragon Lee out of the ring, then he and Euforia turned on Titan after the match.
7) Dragón Rojo Jr., Volador Jr., Yujiro b La Sombra, Marco Corleone, Máscara Dorada
Rudos took 2/3, Yujiro beating Dorada & Volador beating Sombra.
CMLL’s promo for Black Warrior vs Rey Escorpion. That’s happening next week, but it seems like Goya vs Seductora and Nitro vs Aereo are being set up quickly.
The video promo I posted yesterday is apparently a local promoter reusing the footage to promote his show (on June 7th.) Less exciting!
A new poster for an AAA related spot show in Tijauna on June 15 lists injured Mesias in the main event. False advertising?
This year’s Lucha Libre Expo is August 17th to August 19th.
Angel de Oro is part of the NJPW Best of Juniors press conference, speaking around 14:55. The best parts of this were Jushin Liger calmly telling Rocky Romero to shut his mouth, and everything Alex Koslov did. Tournament starts tomorrow, and Angel de Oro leads off against Taichi.
- Cibernetico figures he and LA Park’s mutual dislike of Perros del Mal will allow them to work together.
- DJ Spectro looks back at Mascara Roja losing his mask.
CMLL (FRI) 06/01/2012 Arena Mexico
1) Dark Angel, Estrellita, Marcela vs Amapola, La Seductora, Tiffany
2) Rey Cometa, Stuka Jr., Valiente vs Namajague, Puma King, Shigeo Okumura
3) Diamante vs Dragon Lee [En Busca de un Idolo]
4) Titán vs Euforia [En Busca de un Idolo]
5) Diamante Azul, La Sombra, Máximo vs Rey Bucanero, Terrible, Tiger
6) Black Warrior vs Rey Escorpion [hair]
7) Atlantis, La Máscara, Shocker vs Mephisto, Volador Jr., Yujiro
Nothing particular going on in the main event, but it’s still put ahead to the hair match.
Tiger has not been around much since the trios title match last week – only a Puebla match, and working as a guest announcer once. He didn’t seem to be hurt in Puebla. Not sure what happened, though that’s not more of a disappearing act than Volador did when he was ‘suspended’.
The Busca de un Idolo matches are not specifically listed as semifinals, but the polling is definitely back starting next. It’s possible it’s everyone getting a match versus everyone else with judging and everything.
