CMLL (TUE) 06/25/2013 Arena Mexico [CMLL]
1) Höruz & Robin b Cholo & Ramstein
2) Black Metal, Metálico, Stigma b Bárbaro Cavernario, Hijo del Signo, Hooligan
Tecnicos took 2/3. Metal & Signo still feuding.
3) Bushiroad, Diamante, Fuego b Boby Zavala, Sangre Azteca, Vangellys
Tecnicos took 2/3, Bushi on Sangre and Diamante on Bobby. Another earthquake drill followed the match.
4) Pólvora b Rey Cometa [lightning]
Polvora won in five minutes, using the ropes.
5) Euforia, Gran Guerrero, Último Guerrero b Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr., Máscara Dorada
6) La Máscara, Thunder, Titán b Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto
Straight falls, rudos DQed in the first fall. CMLL’s Twitter pushed a Titan vs Averno rematch to come. Second fall finish appears Averno running away from Titan while his partners lost to the tecnicos.

Titan vs Averno, again, would be pretty fun. Seems like we’re a couple weeks away from it at best.

CMLL (TUE) 06/25/2013 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [@acogdl]
1) Metatrón & Sky Kid b Demonio Maya & Évola
Tecnicos took 1/3.
2) Pequeño Violencia, Pequeño Warrior, Pierrothito b Astral, Bam Bam, Eléctrico
Rudos took 1/3, Warrior powerbombing Electiroc.
3) Kráneo b Super Porky
Gallito worked as Super Porky’s second to counter Mije. One fall match, with Kraneo trying a sunset flip and Porky sitting on him for the win.
4) Negro Casas & Virus b Sagrado & Valiente
Blue Panther was advertised, but replaced by Sagrado on Monday. Rudos took 1/3, Negro beating Sagrado in both falls.
5) Atlantis, Diamante Azul, Shocker b Comandante Pierroth, Mr. Águila, Terrible
Tecnicos took the match in straight falls, and Shocker challenged Mr. Aguila to a singles match next week.

AAA has put up their TV show from this past week, so if you want to see TripleMania XXI in HD, you can start to now. Edit: Or not – it’s still a max of 480p. Curious. Also, part 1 of the interview with the Mexican Powers.

Silver Star and Galactar went to a draw for Silver Star’s title in Arena Solidaridad. They’ll rematch on next week’s big anniversary show (also with Park, Wagner, Santo, Traumas.) At one point, there was supposed to be an opposition show in Arena Coliseo Monterrey with TV people, but that was canceled a month ago quietly. Maybe they didn’t want to do a big show the week before the WWL show? Anyway, the opposition show is now main evented by Black Spirit vs Hijo de Centurion Negro and I hope this airs so we can see how the smallest possible ACM turnout.

This week’s WWL TV show includes the Team Mexico (Laredo Kid, Hombre Sin Miedo, and Sobredosis) versus Team Puerto Rico (Noriega, Mr. 450 Hammet and Lince Dorado) match from their first iPPV, which was fun. The TripleMania tag match would’ve been much better if they used two of Noriega’s team as the WWL representatives.

This is theoretically a Sin Limite taping, but it was left unsaid.

Air Date: 07/13 – and maybe only one week? This seems like a taping where the top 2 matches air on the national show and the other three turn up on UTDN (which is supposed to be for Evolution only now, but c’mon now.)

working AAA TV scheduled for the next few weeks
06/22 & 06/29: TripleMania XXI airs for free
07/06: Leon (just 1 week?)
07/13: Ecatepec
07/20: Tehuacan

This is the AAA taping scheduled on the same day as a WWL’s show in Monterrey. AAA is sending a lot of star people to that show, which meant this one would be lesser than usual. It did turn out that way, but there’s a slight problem: La Parka (and Eita) are listed as working both shows! Parka is part of a an all-star Team Mexico to face a Team Puerto Rico; it’s Cibernetico, Perro & Parka on the certain to fail AAA team. AAA could probably just send Electroshock to the WWL show or have him replace Parka here, but some change is happening. Same thing with Eita – maybe Yuta or Douki or Hanaoka end up teaming with Tomahawk in Monterrey or maybe a random Perros del Mal member ends up here.

Sadly, there’s no silhouette of  the mystery person this time for us to examine. It’s a spot for a Consejo guy or an old guy. V4 is in WWL, so that would leave Canek (who would be definitely advertised) or a Dinamtia (who might not be.) I guess it’s possible it’s something to follow up on TripleMania, but nah. I dunno, it’s another Consejo vs Psycho Circus match, I’m not really excited about it. The rest of the card is exciting.

If Parka and Parka Negra want to brawl into the crowd in the semimain again while the other four have a match, that would be totally cool. Semimain superstar Eterno is a sign they’re kind of strapped for people on this show but is also cool. Eterno is in a higher spot than Daga – maybe he won the feud after all! – and is essentially getting the spot Damian walked out about his son Bestia not getting. It’s probably just for one night and then back to the early matches for him.

There was a Mirreyes vs Perros del Mal feud before TripleMania, but the match setting it up never aired on TV. Perhaps it’ll be restarted here. Perros del Mal seem to be low on people – Halloween’s on the Fusion show but that’s a rare appearance of late. Japonesa del Mal member Eita is a fine fill-in.

Segunda match looks amazing. And opener could be good fun.

This is a good show and I’m hoping WWL continues to exist if AAA ends up with lineups like this. It’s not going to draw great but there are other problems there. It funny for the Psycho Circus to have lost to the WWL/TNA team at TripleMania, and then put up as the top tecnicos on AAA’s first two post-TripleMania tapings. It doesn’t quite fit.
