CMLL (MON) 06/24/2013 Arena Puebla [El Popular, Poblanerias]
1) Bengala & Milenium b Cholo & Siki Ozama Jr.
Bengala submitted Siki.
2) Amapola, La Vaquerita, Princesa Sugheit b Dalis la Caribeña, Lluvia, Luna Mágica
Devil’s Wings on Dalis for the win.
3) Bárbaro Cavernario, Espíritu Maligno, Skándalo b Black Metal (Guadalajara), Pegasso, Tritón
Metal & Cavernario’s debut in this arena. Skandalo Driver on Pegasso.
4) Shocker, Stuka Jr., Super Porky b Kráneo, Morphosis, Psicosis
Porky senton on Kraneo.
5) Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto b Máscara Dorada, Mistico, Valiente
Rudos jumped the tecnicos before the match and took the first fall. Mistica on Averno tied it up. Rudos destroyed the tecnicos mask in the third fall, but no DQ was called and the Avernos went on to win. It set up a title match next week.
Title match should be really good. I’m not linking to it, but El Popular’s cover photo has Valiente’s face exposed (rudos in the process of ripping it to shreds.) That’s not a good deal. You can track it down if you want but I don’t want to multiply it here.
The usual video post is delayed. I’m hoping to get it up today, but the power keeps going off and I find the process of uploading video goes better with electricity. It’ll go up eventually.
Cibernetico says he acknowledges his loss, but wants the public to consider how it happened. He likes his new bald look and may even keep it, but he remains the god of wrestling.
MT has a story on Averno crashing the Blue Panther press conference. Averno says the first mask he had as a kid was Blue Panther’s, but now he wants Panther’s hair. This caused some changing to the booking; Blue Panther is going to be at Arena Mexico Friday to presented with the Honor of Sporting Merit award from the Durango congress, and takes Titan’s place on the show. Panther will still work the same number of the matches this week, so he’s pulled off tonight’s card in Guadalajara and Apolo Dantes says Sagrado is in. It’s disappointing the Valiente/Blue Panther vs Virus/Negro Casas match won’t happening, but CMLL has other priorities.
In AULL, Cerebro Maligno defeated Herejia to set up an AULL Light Heavyweight Title match. Lady Apache is now working segundas on AULL shows with the building 15% full. (On the other hand, it’s really great for the other women she’s working with to include someone who knows what they’re doing.)
IWL, which at one point had a big falling out with Arena Lopez Mateos as was making a point of running their shows in Tlalnepantla as competition, is back to running in Arena Lopez Mateos. Show will take place “in late July or early August.”
CMLL Puebla on TVC Deportes will actually air today at 4pm. It was moved for futbol, as usual. However, the site that used to host the feed has changed homes and drastically scaled down the number of feeds. TVC shares a feed with 3 other channels and that feed isn’t working now.
Rob has highlights of 05/21/13 CMLL.
- A Lucha 2000 preview of Sunday’s IWRG Lightweight tournament says Chicano gave up the title because he changed weight divisions. He did end up with a welterweight title, but you’d think they’d mention the career ending car accident if they had heard.
- Demus says the knee injury – said here to be a right knee ACL tear – cost him some chances to work in the US and Japan.
- Lady Maravilla beat Larry Miranda in a bull terrier match in Arena el Jaguar.
- Black Spirit and Hijo del Centurion Negro set up a singles match next week in Arena Coliseo Monterrey.
- Photos from the show at Arena Coliseo San Luis Potosi this Sunday.
- Chessman vows to continue trying to win the AAA Heavyweight title. He’s good at the trying part.

Mask match is a true toss up.
CMLL (MON) 07/01/2013 Arena Puebla
***Arena Puebla 60th Anniversary***
1) Aéreo, Fantasy, Último Dragoncito vs Mercurio, Pequeño Warrior, Pierrothito

Estetas del Aire are champions, first defense.
That’s not Diamante Azul vs Rey Bucanero, but I think the Puebla people will be okay with that replacement main event. Only one Puebla regular on the show, Espiritu Maligno in the semimain. A bit concerned they’re heading to the Arena Puebla regular end game with him.
