CMLL (TUE) 06/11/2013 Arena Mexico [CMLL]
1) Höruz & Oro Jr. b Guerrero Negro Jr. & Ramstein
2) Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Olímpico, Pierrothito b Astral, Eléctrico, Fantasy
3) Delta, Diamante, Hijo del Fantasma b Cancerbero, Nosferatu, Raziel
4) Fuego b Misterioso Jr. [En Busca de un Idolo]
Fuego submitted Misterioso with an armbar. Fuego scored a 9/8/8/8 for a 33. Misterioso scored 5/1/2/7 for a 15, and made a show of reading CMLL Magazine instead of listening to the judges.
5) Stuka Jr. b Sangre Azteca [En Busca de un Idolo]
Stuka was hurt coming in – Brazo de Plata later said it was a knee, a shoulder and a foot – and seemed to get more hurt after a dive and was badly limping by he end of the match. Still, he won and the judges gave him credit for his professionalism. Stuka scored a 10/10/9/10 for a 39. Sangre scored a 32.
6) La Máscara, Super Porky, Thunder DQ Gran Guerrero, Mr. Niebla, Terrible
Straight falls, Niebla unmasked La Mascara.
7) Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto b Máscara Dorada, Mistico, Valiente
Averno beat Mascara Dorada.

Main event seemed to start an Averno & Mascara Dorada feud, which will be fun, but it’s the team in the final of the trios tournament losing to a team that’s not in the tournament. It looks like Ephesto is right, and his trio is the best trio, but that makes having championship belts really dumb. Maybe this means the Guerreros are winning on Sunday, but there’s no connection from here to there.

Fuego is 12 behind Hijo del Fantasma for 4th place according to CMLL’s standings. He’s 23 points ahead in the poll. That will narrow, but probably not.  Finals four should be announced Friday.

CMLL’s site called this the first 10 Tirantes has given out in the two seasons of this show. Tirantes gave out 2 10s to Euforia last year, 1 to Titan.

Average judges score
Brazo de Plata: 7.4
Ultimo Guerrero (& Shocker & Felino): 6.3
Tony Salazar: 5.5
Tirantes: 4.4

CMLL (TUE) 06/11/2013 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [@acogdl]
1) Mr. Trueno & Rey Trueno b Leo & Virgo
Trueno took 2/3.
2) Black Metal & Smaker b Artillero & Súper Comando
Tecnicos took 1/3.
3) Mercurio, Pequeño Violencia, Pequeño Warrior b Acero, Bam Bam, Último Dragoncito
Mercurio replaced Demus 3:16. Rudos took the first, tecnicso the second, and Mercurio snuck in a foul on Bam Bam. This sets up a hair match for next week.
4) Rush b Euforia
Rush took 2/3, the last with the Rush Driver.
5) Atlantis, Diamante Azul, La Sombra b Dragón Rojo Jr., Pólvora, Rey Escorpión
Tecnicos took 2/3.

Really disappointed there’s no GDL TV now; Mercurio versus Bam Bam looked like a very fun idea in their limited Mexico City interactions the last two weeks. Mercurio being a fill-in suggests Bam Bam is going to lose his hair, but Mercurio winning week 1 suggests Bam Bam is going to keep his hair. Result hazy, ask again later.

AAA Fusion airs tonight at 8pm, with the last couple of matches from Tultitlan. Tercera Caida follows.

A teaser for SuperLuchas 504 was posted a few times this morning. SuperLuchas magazine hasn’t published since March 21st and the suggestion then was it would take new ownership for them to continue.

The three luchadors in the megachampionship match continue to argue among themselves.

Titan says his favorite match in the BOSJ was against Jushin LIger and he hopes to get his title back from Averno.

Blue Panther will be honored by Durango Congress for his achievements in sports on June 28th.

Frequent traveler LA Park does not like security checks.

Terra will have a video interview with Hijo del Santo tomorrow.

An article about Tigre del Ring winning the CELL championship mentions Chicano suffered a fractured skull.
