CMLL (SUN) 07/01/2012 Arena Mexico [CMLL]
1) Leono & Sensei b Apocalipsis & Disturbio
Tecnicos took 2/3.
2) Demus 3:16, Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Warrior b Aereo, Fantasy, Niño de Acero
Rudos took 2/3. Nitro ripped up Aereo’s mask in the second, Aereo paid him back the following match. Nitro rolled thru a ‘rana and grabbed the bottom rope to beat Aereo, then pulled off his mask post match.
3) Fuego, Mr. Cacao, Triton DQ Arkángel de la Muerte, Hijo del Signo, Skándalo
tecnicos took 2/3. Arkangel fouled Mr. Cacao right in front of the ref, tried for the pin anyway. Did not work. Skandalo and Arkangel stomped Cacao until the tecnicos ran them off. They continued to brawl after the match.
4) Delta b Tiger [lightning]
Delta bled, but won in 8:27 with the Delta Special.
5) Hijo del Fantasma, Shocker, Titán b Mephisto, Niebla Roja, Pólvora
Titan replaced Guerrero Maya Jr.
6) Marco Corleone, Máximo, Rush b Kráneo, Olímpico, Psicosis [CMLL TRIOS]
Bufete came in with the belts. Signo was the commissioner. Kraneo beat Marco to win the first fall, Rush & Marco beat Olimpico & Kraneo in the second, Psicosis beat Rush in the third – again! – but this time Marco was captain, and Marco hit Psi with the Aero Italiano to keep the titles.

On the Orizaba taping, Jeff Jarrett teased “one of the biggest stars in the US” as the second man on the Dorian team. If it was Kurt Angle, he would’ve just said Kurt Angle. If it was anyone particularly impressive and they had it determined already, they would’ve said the name and sold some tickets. Either they don’t know who it is, or it’s just a random TNA guy.

Chicano beat Carta Brava Jr. for the IWRG lightweight title, and Hijo de Mascara Ano 2000 picked up the IWRG Juniors from Bestia 666 on tonight’s show

06/30 AAA TV Results (Orizaba)

AAA TV (SAT) 06/30/2012 Plaza de Toros La Concordia de Orizaba, Veracruz [Lucha Libre AAA]
1) Monster Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown b Argos, Texano Jr., Toscano
AAA’s recap erroneously listed Semental in Toscano’s place, but Toscano was there. Psycho frog splash, followed by a Murder splash, was enough to beat Argos.
2) Teddy Hart b Jack Evans
Teddy won with a Canadian Destroyer. Consejo attacked Jack after the match. Dr. Wagner ran them off, security having to keep him and Mascara apart.
3) Cuervo & Ozz b Brutus Magnus & Chessman
TNA’s Brutus Magnus replaced Abyss, took the loss. Chessman attacked Cuervo & Ozz with a ladder, and Vampiro turned up for the save.
4) Daga & Halloween b Extreme Tiger & Juventud Guerrera
Prior to the match, the Perros came to the ring. Daga was welcomed to the group, and Perro said Mesias would not be 100% for their match at TripleMania. Mesias turned up and disagreed. Perro mocked him and left. Daga pinned Juvi in the match.
5) Máscara Año 2000 Jr. b Dr. Wagner Jr.
Dr. Wagner Jr. had Hijo de Dr. Wagner Jr. as his second, while Mascara Ano 2000 was his son’s second. Mascaras outsmarted the Wagners, setting up the win. Electroshock got involved after the match, but Consejo beat him up. Psycho Circus ran out for the save. Wagner sentenced Mascara to a mask vs mask match at TripleMania.
6) Cibernético, Electroshock, LA Park b el Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Héctor Garza, Psicosis
Electroshock superplexes Psicosis thru a table for the win. Dorian appeared on the big screen after the match, announcing the first member of his team at TripleMania: Jeff Jarrett. Joaquin responded by picking Electroshock. LA Park pleaded to be on Team Joaquin to get at Jarrett. Joaquin wasn’t sure, but eventually accepted. Park celebrated big.

Air Date: 07/08, 07/15. Teziutlan airing as a 1 taping show means the Toluca taping is for last two weekends of July, and tey still will need something for the weekend of TripleMania (and after.)

Doing all this with Jeff Jarrett to stick him in an elimination match is silly, but if TripleMania still has LA Park pinning him, then it’s not a total waste of time. (And if Dorian’s team loses, that’d be a way to end this sotyrline. Which would be fine!)

It also means they’re combining what appeared to be two different matches (the elimination tag and Jarrett/Park) into a single one, which gives room for another match. Unfortunately, the other match sure seems to be something like Chessman vs Vampiro in a ladder match, an awful idea as a singles match. They are pretty closely associating Ozz & Cuervo with Vampiro, so maybe it could be some sort of Secta/Vampiro vs Chessman/Gladiador/Dark Dragon match?

The Mega title match is still unclear, though they seemed to move it back towards just Mesias vs Perro, with no role for Cibernetico. They’ve got to decide soon.

Next taping is 07/13 in Toluca. Extreme Tiger vs Halloween is a lock, it’s the only one left of the relevos suicidas match.
