CMLL (SUN) 03/30/2014 Arena Coliseo [CMLL, Yahoo! Deportes Mexico]
1) Mercurio, Pequeño Olímpico, Pequeño Warrior DQ Acero, Pequeño Halcón, Stukita
Acero replaced Aereo. Olimpico pulled Halcon’s mask in the first and cradled him to take the fall. Tecincos took fall 2 clean. Halcon fouled Olimpico in the third.
2) Amapola, Tiffany, Zeuxis b Goya Kong, Lluvia, Skadi
Skadi’s debut, and Lluvia’s first match in DF since July. Skadi looked new and tired out before the end of the match. Rudas took 2/3.
3) Rey Cometa, Stuka Jr., Tritón b Cancerbero, Raziel, Virus
Tecnicos took 2/3, Stuka beating Virus after they feuded slightly during the match.
4) Ephesto b Fuego [lightning]
Ephesto Roll in 8:33.
5) Rey Bucanero, Terrible, Vangellys b Diamante Azul, La Máscara, Titán
Rudos took 1/3.
6) Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas, Rey Escorpión b Atlantis, Marco Corleone, Máximo
Rudos took 2/3. Niebla snuck in a foul on Atlantis for the win. Atlantis challenged Niebla to a singles match, and the announcers were quick to confirm it would be happening next week.

Last year’s Arena Coliseo Anniversary was a very fun show. That was last year. CMLL ran Atlantis versus Mr. Niebla here back in January and it wasn’t very good, but they seem committed to teasing a mask match between those two this year. Multiman minis cage apuesta matches are rarely worth the time to put up the cage, and the CMLL minis division is stocked with possible cynical losers.

I was disappointed Zacarias did not use the ball as a weapon during the match, but he and Negro kicked it back and forth during their entrance. Zacarias was allowed to stand in Peste Negra’s corner during the main event, unlike in Arena Mexico.

CMLL (SUN) 03/30/2014 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [@acogdl]
1) Raycko b El Piraña
Winner spelled as Reycko – changed the spelling in his six weeks between matches? He won with a plancha.
2) El Tapatío & Explosivo b Furia Nazi & Satara
Tecnicos took 2/3.
3) Exterminador & Infierno b El Brillante & Javier Cruz
Rudos took 1/3, Infierno sneaking in a foul on Cruz.
4) Ráfaga b León Blanco
Rafaga tried to sneak in a foul, but referee saw it and called the DQ.
5) Camorra & Maléfico b Gallo & Leo
Rudos took 1/3, Camorra getting in the win as a prelude to the hair match with Leo on Tuesday.
6) La Sombra, Sagrado, Super Porky b Mephisto, Misterioso Jr., Pólvora
Tecnicos took 2/3.
