CMLL (TUE) 04/30/2013 Arena Mexico [CMLL, Yahoo! Deportes (Photos)]
1) Camaleón & Sensei b Apocalipsis & Inquisidor
Sensei replaced the not-returning-yet Horuz.
2) Mercurio, Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Olímpico b Astral, Pequeño Halcón, Stukita
Rudos took 2/3.
3) Ephesto b Guerrero Maya Jr. [lightning]
Ephesto caught Maya in his cradle for a slight upset win.
4) Ángel de Oro, Diamante, Valiente b Namajague, Puma, Virus
Namajague replaced Sangre Azteca. Tecnicos took 1/3, Valiente beating Virus with the Valiente Breaker.
5) Rey Escorpión b Stuka Jr. [CMLL LH]
Stukita and Mercurio (wearing a Rey Escorpion bandana) were the seconds. Stuka took the first with a half crab. Escorpion powerbombed him in the second, then took the third with the Aguijon Mortal. Stuka was strechered out. First defense for Escorpion.
6) Felino, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas b La Máscara, La Sombra, Shocker
Appears Negro beat Shocker with a casita.
Crowd was fine with those rudos winning on Kid’s Day. The show also had kid’s dressed up as luchadors, and girls dancing as edecanes.
Ephesto’s favorite dive involves people mistakenly sliding out so he can top them, and his favorite cradle is a reversal move. If Ephesto could only figure out a way for guys to feed themselves into the shoulderbreaker as well, he’d be unstoppable.
Mercurio with the Rey Escorpion bandana looks like Mini Rey Escorpion.
CMLL (TUE) 04/30/2013 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [@acogdl]

Tecnicos took 2/3, Black Metal beating Canelo Casas (debut in this arena.)

Tecnicos took 2/3, Sagrado beating Olimpico.
5) Diamante Azul, Rush, Titán b Dragón Rojo Jr., Mr. Águila, Terrible
Terrible replaced Psicosis. Tecnicos appeared to have won in straight falls, Rush beating Terrible.
El Hijo del Santo is listed among the particpants of Balia Mexico, a competitive dance show on TV Azteca. Blue Demon has been on a similar Televisa show (which is probably why Santo is on this one, though it’s more directly competing against a singing Televisa competition.) Show starts May 26.
Terra has posted Sunday’s show complete on their website. I’ll probably end up cutting it up and uploading the missing matches later (assuming I don’t figure out how to time code link to Terra before then.)
Tercera Caida posted the International Cup and Latin Dragon & Rebelde vs Facade & Noriega from the ChilangaMask show I went to. They also posted this week’s IWRG show. A new Tercera Caida airs tonight at 9, immediately following a mystery episode of AAA Fusion at 8.
I have results from the last couple of DTU shows – 04/28 in Queretaro, which had the two title changes, and 04/19 in Ciudad Madero with KBW. No details. Yuta has been wrestling on these shows, but not turning up later.
LuchaWorld has a recap of the short lived Alebrije and Mije split up.
- Santo & LA Park vs Dr. Wagner & Angel Blanco headlines Tijuana on 05/17.
- Skayde main events next Tuesday’s Arena Coliseo Monterrey show.
- Ciudad y Poder has a short video interview with Rey Cometa.
- CMLL has an interview with Voladors Jr. and Volador Sr.
- Televisa Deportes is giving away tickets to Saturday’s sponsored shows. Probably going to be harder to sell tickets when there’s a loaded show in the middle of them with free tickets everywhere.
- San Luis Potosi luchador Magico is out of action due emergency appendicitis removal.
- An article says Santo & Rayo headline a show on 05/19 show in Sonora with “17 ex-WWE wrestlers” and 18 “CMLL wrestlers”. This article is almost certaintly mistaken.
- Former Gran Alternativa winner Sicodelico Jr. will be interviewed tonight on the Voice of Wrestling podcast.
- Sombra posted a photo of himself at 13, a few days before his first match.
- The Travel Channel meets Tijuana lucha libre.
- AJPW’s Seiya Sanada is actually going to Canada, not Mexico.
- Late breaking news: Sexy Star did make it to Arena Mexico!
IWRG (SUN) 05/05/2013 Arena Naucalpan [KrisZ]
1) Seiya & Serpiente de Oro vs Dragón Celestial & Imposible
2) Astro Rey Jr., Cristal, Saruman vs Diosa Maya, Rayan, Spartan
3) Centvrión, Dr. Cerebro, Golden Magic vs Apolo Estrada Jr., Canis Lupus, Niko
4) Chico Che, Negro Navarro, Pantera vs Danny Casas, Eterno, Factor
5) Dinamic Black vs Carta Brava Jr. [IWRG IC WELTER, WWS WELTER]
Dinamic Black is IWRG Welterweight champion, going for his third known defense. This would Carta Brava’s first defense of his WWS Welterweight championship.
Title match should be good. They unified these two championships back in 2011 with Eterno & Golden Magic, but continued to defend them separate.
Danny Casas appears to have turned rudo and made friends with Eterno some time off camera. I don’t know if Niko is friends with Eterno.
CMLL (TUE) 05/07/2013 Arena Mexico
1) Génesis & Robin vs Espanto Jr. & Herodes Jr.
2) Acero, Eléctrico, Shockercito vs Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Olímpico, Pequeño Violencia
3) Diamante, Sagrado, Tritón vs Hooligan, Nitro, Skándalo
4) Fuego vs Virus [lightning]
5) Delta, Diamante Azul, Máximo vs Mr. Niebla, Pólvora, Terrible
6) Rush, Thunder, Titán vs Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto
Titan! On an actual lineup! With some weird partners!
Fuego & Virus is a good match they’re not going to show on TV.
Shocker/Mr. Aguila being stone cold dropped has gotten some attention, but Shockercito/Pequeno Violencia seemed like it went away until maybe now.
Opener will be a struggle.
CMLL (TUE) 05/07/2013 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Halcón de Plata & Virgo vs Exterminador & Infierno
2) Esfinge, Leo, Sky Kid vs Arkángel de la Muerte, Disturbio, Nosferatu

4) Ángel de Oro, La Máscara, Super Porky vs Felino, Puma, Tiger
5) Máscara Dorada, Mistico, Valiente vs Euforia, Niebla Roja, Último Guerrero
Dorada, Mistico and Valiente a team here too. But the Cats are also a team and they keep going back and forth on that.
