07/13-14 lucha times


TxT is off (until 08/03, as best I can figure.) AAA *might* actually have some new content.

== AAA ==

AAA-Televisa: Probably an hour early (3pm CT) but AAA hasn’t said anything. Finally, the Leon taping? This would be the month old taping from Leon. All the results will be a surprise because you’ve largely forgotten what happened on that taping by now. I assuming it’s now a 1 taping show, with a random amount of matches to air on UTDN

AAA-Fusion: Maybe other Leon tapings here? TVC Deportes didn’t air a rerun of AAA Fusion this past week, so who knows what’s going on here. I don’t think this show has been canceled, but I guess even that’s possible.

== CMLL ==

Galavision/Televisa: Moved up to 2pm – which means this show and Fox Sports run against each other. Ooops. This has the cibernetico to set up the cage match.

FOX: Guerreros vs Atlantis/Mistico/Titan & women. The repeat is on at 7pm, which runs against C3. The repeat of that looks to be Sunday at 8pm. I can’t remember that’s on at that time.

52MX: Estetas del Aire vs Ephesto, Mephisto, Volador Jr.

C3: Averno vs Titan

TVC Deportes (Puebla): If they pick up with the next episode in line, it’s the Estetas del Aire vs Hijos del Avernos trios title match.

Terra: Arena Coliseo Tag Team Championship battle! Other matches!

== Other ==

IWRG-AYM Sports: Familia de Tijuana vs Traumas, if it airs.

Noches de Coliseo: Maybe the WWL show? Maybe something completely random?

Puebla cibernetico, AAA TV taping in DF, Mascara Sagrada USA, Infierno en el Ring lineup

CMLL (MON) 07/08/2013 Arena Puebla [El Popular (cover), Porra Fresa]
1) Blue Center & Espanto Jr. b Asturiano & Fresbee
Rudos took 1/3.
2) Stigma b Espíritu Maligno, Leono, Pegasso, Siki Ozama Jr., Skándalo, Disturbio, Robin, Tigre Rojo Jr., Inquisidor
Eliminations: Inquisidor (Pegasso), Tigre (Disturbio), Robin (Skandalo Driver), Disturbio (Leono), Skandalo (Stigma), Osama (Leono), Pegasso (Espiritu), Leono (Espiritu), Espiritu (DQ when Stigma had Espiritu beat and Skandalo broke the pin.) Everyone brawled post match to set up the cage match next week.
3) Bushiroad, Diamante, Tritón b Cancerbero, Raziel, Virus
Tecnicos took 1/3.
4) Dragón Rojo Jr., Pólvora, Rey Escorpión b La Máscara, Stuka Jr., Titán
Rudos took 2/3.
5) Mr. Niebla, Pierroth, Último Guerrero DQ Atlantis, Diamante Azul, Shocker
Tecnicos took 2/3. UG fouled Azul for the DQ.

So Stigma didn’t actually get the pinfall on Espiritu after all. Hmmm.

Ultimo Guerrero vs Diamante Azul are matched up next week too, so this is the start of a thrilling feud.

Virus kept the CMLL Super Lightweight Championship over San Luis Potosi’s Bogar in Arena Coliseo San Luis Potosi this past Sunday. Virus took the last two falls, and fans threw money in the ring after the match.

AAA’s announced a return to Gimansio Juan de la Barrera on 08/02 for a TV taping. No lineup. Best guess is it airs 08/10 but we’re groping in the dark to figure out AAA’s TV schedule right now. Announced taping schedule right now is 07/15 in Tehuacan, 07/19 Xalapa, this one on 08/02 and then a yet to be announced one 08/16 in Queretaro. Either the DF taping is 2 shows, or there’s another taping to be announced around 08/09. This is a week after the next TxT show in Gimnasio Juan de la Barrera, in case you want to know what Santo will blame poor attendance on.

AAA has also added a profile for a Mascara Sagrada USA. The picture appears to be of the original Mascara Sagrada and the profile suggests it’s that guy. That seems very unlikely, since the original Sagrada and AAA have long battled over who had rights to the name and AAA’s had other people replace him. Maybe AAA locked down a variation of the name? It’s been a long time since that character really meant anything, but AAA likes to protect it’s creations.

Averno says beating Titan was an easy win. That recap says the match had “more than 30 minutes of fighting.” SKEPTICAL.

The mystery Vengador for the WWL show turned out to be Vengador Radioactivo from Xalapa.

King Rap, Temepstad, and Calaca Spike talking about winning a lucha reality show in Saltillo.

Optymuz talks up the upcoming NGX trios match with Dinastia Navarro.

ChilangaMask 08/25 card update: Negro Navarro vs Shu el Guerrero, Aeroboy vs Kaientai, Solar vs TBA

Thread asks Who would win in a fight, Canelo Alvarez vs Konnan Big? (Depends on the rules.)

Hijo del Santo’s column today ends with him promising revenge on LA Park.


DTU (SAT) 07/13/2013 Autolavado VM, Tulancingo, Hidalgo
1) Flyer vs Sope Fox, Alexis X, JC MaClean
2) Artikus & Pequeno Cobra vs Lanzeloth & Rocky Lobo and Miedo Extremo & Sacristan
3) Drastik Boy, Hacker, Kaleth vs Black Fire, Hormiga, Jhonky
4) Cíclope, Paranoiko, Slayer Pack vs Ángel o Demonio, Big Memo, Ovett

DTU show this weekend building off Los Porros running in last weekend.

IWRG (SUN) 07/14/2013 Arena Naucalpan
1) Galaxie & Seiya vs Araña de Plata & Fulgore II
2) Astro Rey Jr., Golden Magic, Saruman vs Fulgor I, Imposible, Power Bull
3) Centvrión, Dinamic Black, Veneno vs Decnnis, Oficial 911, Scorpio Jr.
4) Dr. Cerebro, Emo Extreme, Toscano vs Fuerza Guerrera, Heddi Karaoui, X-Fly
5) Eterno & Súper Nova vs Trauma I & Trauma II

Main event will be a fight. Traumas may be outnumbered, since X-Fly is around and Negro Navarro (and Acero?) are not, but they’re the Traumas so it’ll be fine.

Emo Extreme, semimain tecnico, is random even for IWRG. Don’t confuse a Power Bull with a Golden Bull, totally different bulls.

CMLL (TUE) 07/16/2013 Arena Mexico
1) Camaleón & Génesis vs Akuma & Camorra
2) Hombre Bala Jr., Molotov, Súper Halcón Jr. vs Guerrero Negro Jr., Hijo del Signo, Nosferatu
3) Bushiroad vs Hooligan [lightning]
4) Lluvia, Luna Mágica, Silueta vs La Comandante, La Vaquerita, Zeuxis
5) Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr., Máscara Dorada vs Morphosis, Namajague, Olímpico
6) Máximo, Rush, Thunder vs Kráneo, Mr. Niebla, Psicosis

Semimain looks like the best match on the card. Bushi/Hooligan will be fun too, though only the people in the building will get to see it. Dorada/Namajague and Thunder/Niebla are carrying on from last week; one of those sounds great and the other sounds great for very different reasons.

Metalico seems to have gone missing. Maybe laws were passed to block further Signo/Metalico matches, but they got the wrong guy.

CMLL (TUE) 07/16/2013 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Metatrón & Smaker vs Espectrum & Évola
2) Black Metal, Esfinge, Magnus vs Bárbaro Cavernario, Cancerbero, Raziel
3) Fuego, Stuka Jr., Tritón vs Dragón Rojo Jr., Pólvora, Rey Escorpión
4) Atlantis, Blue Panther, Shocker vs Negro Casas, Rey Bucanero, Tiger
5) Mistico vs Volador Jr.

Main event is a rematch from an Arena Mexico show. It could’ve be a bigger deal, since this is Mistico’s hometown arena (or at least his home state arena), but CMLL seems to have stripped the Guadalajara-ness of Mistico La Nueva Era along with everything else.

CMLL (FRI) 07/19/2013 Arena Mexico
***Infierno en el Ring, 2013***
1) Dalis la Caribeña, Goya Kong, Marcela vs Princesa Blanca, Princesa Sugheit, Tiffany
2) La Máscara, Stuka Jr., Titán vs Ephesto, Mephisto, Niebla Roja
3) Atlantis, Diamante Azul, Thunder vs Felino, Mr. Niebla, Pierroth
4) Máscara Dorada, Mistico, Valiente vs Euforia, Último Guerrero, Volador Jr.
5) Shocker vs Máximo, Rush, Brazo de Plata, Blue Panther, Negro Casas, Rey Bucanero, Mr. Águila, Averno, Rey Escorpión [cage, hair, mask]

The Estetas del Aire do team on a Friday against a good, but no significant match on this card besides the cage match. That tercera looks like a struggle, second and fourth look good. Vangelis can win En Busca de un Idolo and would still miss this card unless they add a lightning match.
