CMLL holds a #1 contender’s tag team tournament tonight in Arena Mexico. Winners face Rey Bucanero & Tama Tonga at a time to be announced. Teams involved:
- Mistico & Valiente
- Atlantis & Sombra
- Marco Corleone & Diamante Azul
- Delta & Guerrero Maya Jr.
- Volador Jr. & Psicosis
- Ephesto & Misterioso
- Terrible & Vangellys
- Ultimo Guerrero & Gran Guerrero
Only Delta & Guerrero Maya are a regular tag team, though that’s because CMLL doesn’t really do regular tag teams. Some of the others are members of bigger groups who still team up plenty. Atlantis & Sombra are the on paper favorites but I’m still hoping for Delta/Maya.
IWRG has it’s 30th FILL show, this one focused on rivalries with the Tony Rivera and Skayde Gyms. The main event of these are usually a school versus school cibernetico, and there is one with FILL vs Skayde’s students (Turbo & Black Thunder can never graduate.) However, the actual main event is Dragon Celestial versus Ciclon Black based on the previous trainee shows and their mask ripping on normal IWRG shows. We heard very good things about Dragon Celestial in Mexico. He’s impressed enough to be put in this position, and this is a big chance for him to break out.
Over in Guadalajara, Estrellita has a title defense against Amapola and will likely keep the national title.
Iron Love & Chucho el Roto kept the AULL tag team titles over Costa Rica’s Escualo & Ares.
The 10/05 Arena Coliseo Monterrey show will benefit/honor Kato Kung Lee. Which means two of those in a row, since this upcoming Sunday’s show is for Gemelo Muerte II.
Villano IV says he’s looking for a venue/date to do a Villanos vs Piratas triple apuesta match but nothing is set. He also suggests his brother Villano V is going to do a retirement tour of smaller arenas for (just) a year until July 2nd, 2014. None of the Villanos are on the show they’re promoting this Sunday; they’re not in great physical shape at this point.
Exodo lost his mask in Tijuana.
Cronicas y Leyendas looks back at Mil Mascaras accusing Konnan of having an inflated muscle and ego (lol), changing names, and Vampiro beating Pirata Morgan.
