AAA TV (FRI) 05/17/2013 Gimnasio Miguel Hidalgo de Puebla [AAABlack Terry Jr. (flickr)Porra Fresa]
1) Mini Espiritu & Yeigo b Avaricia & Saeta Roja
Locals dark match.
2) Jinzo & Saturno b Ángel Mortal & Fresero Jr.
added dark match. Saturno & Fresero Jr’s debuts in AAA, Mortal’s first TV match in over a year. Jinzo won via 450 splash.
3) Carta Brava Jr. & Eterno b Lucky Boy & Niño de Ébano
Eterno replaced Fresero Jr. (moved down a match)
4) Axel, Dinastía, Pimpinela Escarlata b Argos, Mamba, Mini Abismo Negro
Pepe Casas was honored for his 80th birthday by Joaquin and Heavy Metal before the match. Dinastia beat Argos in the match. Porra Fresa says this was the best match of the night.
5) La Hechicera & Mary Apache b Faby Apache & La Jarochita
Faby Apache german suplexes Hechicera for the win.
6) Alan Stone, El Elegido, Toscano DQ Halloween, Psicosis, Ricky Marvin
Ricky Marvin was the mystery Perro. The Perros mocked the Mirreyes with their own MiPerros gimmick. Perros martineted Toscano, who was strechered out. Perros were DQed for excessive violence.
7) Chessman, Parka Negra, Pentagón Jr. b Fénix, Heavy Metal, La Parka
Texano hit Heavy Metal with a guitar, giving Chessman the win. Parka and Parka Negra feuded.
8) Blue Demon Jr., El Mesías, Electroshock b Máscara Año 2000 Jr., Silver King, Texano Jr.
Blue Demon Jr. & Mesias did not get along, but their team won when Chessman attacked Texano. Chessman explained the megachampion has no friends and he was taking the title at TripleMania. Demon and Mesias fought after the match, with Fenix, Axel and Parka breaking it up. Porra Fresa said this was the worst match of the night.

Air date: 05/25 and 06/01

Looks like Demon vs Mesias is set, and seperate from the title match. And Chessman vs Texano is real, though Metal will still find his way back into it, I guess. More Sunday?

Sombra pins Nakamura, En Busca de un Idolo, WWL on TripleMania

CMLL (FRI) 05/17/2013 Arena Mexico [CMLLYahoo! Deportes]
1) Akuma & Apocalipsis b Molotov & Sensei
2) Hooligan, Nitro, Skándalo b Pegasso, Starman, Tritón
3) Kráneo, Namajague, Olímpico b Guerrero Maya Jr., Rey Cometa, Sagrado
Kraneo and Mije were dressed up like Darth Vader and Yoda. Kraneo noted Mije was hurt in the match.
4) Vangelis b Fuego [En Busca de un Idolo]
Vangelis won with a Buca Storm. Felino replaced Ultimo Guerrero, said to be only for one night. Judges gave Vangelis 7 (Brazo de Plata), 7 (Felino), 2 (Tirantes), 7 (Tony Salazar) for a total of 23. Fuego got 8 (Plata), 6 (Felino), 1 (Tirantes), 5 (Salazar) for 20.
5) Stuka Jr. b Tiger [En Busca de un Idolo]
Stuka Jr. won in a quicker match with his torpedo splash. He scored a 7, 8, 4, 5 from the judges for a 24. Tiger got a 7, 8, 3 and 4 for a 22.
6) Rush, Super Porky, Thunder b Averno, Mephisto, Volador Jr.
Super Porky had to hustle to the back after judging as was the first one out for this match. His team still won.
7) Diamante Azul, La Sombra, Máximo b Negro Casas, Pierroth, Shinsuke Nakamura
Sombra beat Nakamura with the Brillante Bomb and challenged for a IWGP IC title shot. Nakamura was not agreeable.

The En Busca de un Idolo matches are being live streamed on a Terra subsite, though the actual poll to vote in is on CMLL’s sub site (and works the same way as last year.) I’m staying out of voting this year. It appeared the Busca matches will not air on Fox Sports after all – matches 1/2/7 were taped for Televisa and 3/6 for Fox Sports. At the time I’m writing this, the En Busca de un Idolo matches have not been uploaded to a CMLL YouTube channel either.

WWL announced Los Mamitos and Monster Pain would be wrestling on TripleMania. Monster Pain is the former Black Pain from WWC, the current WWL World Heavyweight Champion, and a sort of Abyss-like character. He won that title in a battle royal, after having an awful singles match earlier on the card (and apparently a dark match even before that.) WWL says he’ll be defending his title on TripleMania. Los Mamitos are Mirreyes like pretty boy wrestlers, though they appeared to be heels on the WWL show, and went to a time limit draw for the new WWL tag team titles on that show. They’ll get another shot at the tag titles here, against what probably is an AAA team but who knows. These guys are all unknowns to the audience that goes to TripleMania, and AAA will have a lot of work to do make their fans care about these guys at all; as of now, they just seem like they’re going to be taking up space which ought to go to guys who are around all year.

Rob has highlights of 04/06/13 Fusion.

Rico Rodriguez defeated Super Crazy (twice!) in Crazy’s first match in Arena Coliseo Monterrey since 2005.

IWL says Steve Corino and Kevin Steen will be coming to their Anniversary show. I’m unsure when that actually is.

Nino Hamburgesa and Yuta, likely up to no good.
