CMLL (FRI) 07/12/2013 Arena Mexico [CMLL]
1) Eléctrico & Último Dragoncito b Pequeño Olímpico & Pierrothito
Tecnicos took 1/3
2) Namajague, Puma, Shigeo Okumura b Diamante, Sagrado, Tritón
Rudos took 2/3.
3) Diamante Azul, La Máscara, Shocker b Dragón Rojo Jr., Ephesto, Mephisto
Tecnicos took 1/3.
4) Averno, Negro Casas, Rey Escorpión b Blue Panther, Rush, Super Porky
Straight brawl and straight falls. Negro got in a foul on Rush in the end. Lots of post match talking and fighting to set up next week.
5) Vangelis b Valiente [En Busca de un Idolo, final]
Vangelis won a 10+ minute match, surviving two Valiente Busters and escaping a Valiente casita to put on his own – with some help from Virus. Valiente was livid post match, had to be held back by Fuego and Stuka (there to get 4th/3rd place trophies) as well as Negro Casas, and refused to accept his second place trophy. Vangelis, who had a rooting section, decided the win to the rudos.
6) Atlantis, Máscara Dorada, Mistico b Euforia, Gran Guerrero, Último Guerrero
Tecnicos took 1/3.

En Busca de un Idolo’s results page says “the tournament has changed the way you look at Mexican wrestling.” Matches happens, they’re never mentioned again, seems like the same lucha libre. Maybe I missed something! It seemed like Valiente vs Virus was going somewhere, but Misterioso vs the Judges has not. Still, Vangelis ought to find himself a trio just to be sure.

Diamante, Triton, and Sagrado versus Puma, Arkangel and Skandalo has been added to next week’s card as the opener.

AAA interviews Chessman before his tag match Monday on the Puebla TV taping. Chessman hates Jack Evans and Angelico for being male models. It’s not quite dancers, but it’s close enough to annoy Chessman. “The girls shout in excitement for them, but I will make them scream in horror.” Chessman likes Eterno, thinks he’s got a future in lucha libre, and just needs to get with the right people (rudos.) KrisZ says Black Killer & Dracul Jr. vs Blaze & Principe Azul has been added as the dark match.
