Stigma vs Espiritu Maligno, Halloween out of AAA, WWL, Casandro, Santo return date

CMLL (MON) 07/22/2013 Arena Puebla [El Popular (cover)]
1) Cholo & Guerrero Negro Jr. b Asturiano & Black Tiger
2) Dalis la Caribeña, Dark Angel, Estrellita b La Vaquerita, Princesa Blanca, Zeuxis
3) Diamante, Fuego, Sagrado b Arkángel de la Muerte, Raziel, Skándalo
Straight falls when the Tuareg turned on Raziel as usual.
4) Espíritu Maligno, Puma, Tiger b Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr., Stigma
Unspecified rudo cheating to win. Stigma challenged Espiritu Maligno to a mask match, which will happen next week.
5) La Máscara, Rush, Thunder DQ Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas, Volador Jr.
Negro fouled Rush.
6) Diamante Azul b Último Guerrero [NWA LH]
UG’s second was Skandalo. Azul, being pushed strongly as a Puebla local than he has in the past, took falls 1/3 to keep the title in his first defense. UG was strechered out after taking the German suplex in the third.

Arena Puebla looks pretty full. Hopefully it is for the Espiritu/Stigma mask match next week. I really like that at least one branch of CMLL is following up on a feud from a cage match. As a Person On The Internet, I’m not going to doubt Espiritu Maligno.

Enrique Yniesta says Halloween is out of AAA and Perros del Mal. He doesn’t know the exact reason why, but does note Halloween being in a bad mood and it hurting his performance. Halloween’s match and breakup with Mary Apache on the Xalapa show also seemed like AAA were writing Halloween out for the time being. It leaves the Perros del Mal group as only Perro Jr., Psicosis, Daga and Taya; it seemed like AAA was bringing in Eita to bolster their numbers, but Eita doesn’t seem like he’s sticking around for much longer.

WWL announced their touring schedule for the next few months. It’s as ambitious as usual. They’ll be running shows in Mexico on September 5 and 7th (one of those in Monterrey), in the Dominican Republic on 10/05, in Puerto Rico on 10/26 and back in Mexico on 11/14 thru 16 (the week after the Lucha Libre Expo.)

May’s Details magazine had a really good long form story on Casandro. Among other stories (and less interesting than others), Casandro mentions the one dream he has left is to wrestle in Arena Mexico, but is unlikely to achieve because Arena Mexico has a ban on openly gay luchadors. CMLL says such a ban does not exist. Pimpinela Escarlata did fight in Arena Mexico in 2000 eight times (losing every single match.) Maximo is a straight man playing exotico; Casandro mentions he likes Maximo personally but hates that idea. CMLL’s hasn’t used a lot of exoticos of any types – it definitely helped Maximo take off very quickly when he started that character. There’s some sense in not wanting to have multiple exoticos to make them seem less special, but CMLL is otherwise okay with having multiple people playing the same exact character. It’s surprising Casandro hasn’t been on a DragonMania show, which does also suggest there’s some truth here.

The next Fuerza Imperial show will be on September 28th. That link has the mystery opener match result. Piratas plan on humiliating the Villanos.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.

Rebeldia won the first Copa Funcion Estelar.

Esther Moreno says her sister has always been mean to her.

NOAH: the team of Dual Force & Pesadilla are done in the GHC Junior Heavyweight tournament due to Dual Force’s injury. Kaiser & Gaston Mateo get a forfeit win and suddenly have a really good shot at advancing.


CMLL (SUN) 07/28/2013 Arena Coliseo
1) Bengala & Robin vs Akuma & Inquisidor
2) Metálico, Sensei, Soberano Jr. vs Camorra, Nitro, Nosferatu
3) Guerrero Maya Jr., Rey Cometa, Tritón vs Cancerbero, Raziel, Virus
4) Ángel de Oro vs Puma [lightning]
5) La Sombra, Shocker, Titán vs Euforia, Niebla Roja, Taichi
6) Máscara Dorada, Mistico, Valiente vs Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto

CMLL started an Estetas del Aire/Hijos del Averno feud here a couple weeks ago, dropped it while dealing with other things, and seems to have brought it back just in time for a title match in the next couple of weeks.

Main event could be good. Tercera could be a lot of fun. Fourth match is a check to see where Angel de Oro is at physically. Fifth match should have it’s moments. It looks like CMLL’s keeping Metalico and Signo apart now.

CMLL (SUN) 07/28/2013 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Capitan (Guadalajara) & Índigo vs El Tapatío & Samael (Guadalajara)

The last Kraneo/Super Porky match was on a Tuesday, so (they believe) this is a different audience.

IWRG was a repeat, at least on LAS. I figured out the taping dates for the SLP shows on Mexicanal, a very proud moment. I may go back and add in the old ones. I have last week’s Puebla, but this week’s show hasn’t aired.
