5) Cibernético, La Parka, Psycho Clown vs el Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Hijo del Fantasma, Texano Jr.

Air Date: 04/26

I had this as a double taping, because one of SLP or this show has to be a double taping to cover all three weeks of TV and SLP is already announced as five matches so it needs to be this, only how is SLP working since that would only leave them three days to go from taping to air and they never go that fast so maybe they’re just off a week? aaaaah I dunno. Maybe there will be an extra match here is what I’m saying.

This is show #2 of what was said 10 tapings in this building this year. If they’re really going to hit that number (and you should be a bit skeptical of it), AAA’s running a show in this building once a month from now on. The benefit of the DF shows for fans is AAA puts pressure on themselves to run bigger matches in Mexico City, and so they’re finally getting on with it on at least one front.

Second match should be good (though poor Angelico will be booed again), main event should not, opener should be a fine opener but the middle matches are the only ones with progress. Drago & Faby Apache won those belts in July (in a Farewell To Halloween special) and have had teams challenging them for those belts since about five minutes after the win. Nine months later, they get to defend them for the first time. This match is well overdue. Suicide is around, which seems like bad news for Our Hero Pentagon Jr., but maybe Pentagon will just destroy him earlier to play it safe.

Follow up reports on the Ciudad Victoria taping include mentions of Demon repeating his demand to be the first person to challenge the match, and Chessman stating that Demon should not get that opportunity because Demon missed Rey de Reyes. Chessman said Demon needs to prove himself worthy and specifically declared Villano IV as a more deserving challenger based on the Rey de Reyes match. That appears to be the context to the singles match. It’s not listed as #1 contenders match, but the former Todo x el Todo-ers battle to prove themselves worthy of a title shot. (This was before Chessman lost to Alan Stone, which is definitely not unplanned randomness since a skit with them aired on TV this week, before the title win – it does still seem like planned randomness though.)

Sin Cara – or “a figure which looked like Sin Cara but can’t be proven in court to be Sin Cara” – appeared at the last DF taping. It would make sense for him to appear here again, especially if his non-compete if over, but there’s not been any hint of that yet. They’re still a ways out from this show, but it’s something to keep an eye out for him.

Arena Fusion, Invasors defeat Guererros/Avernos

AAA (SUN) 03/30/2014 Arena Fusion, Jardines de Morelos, Estado de México [Black Terry Jr. (Flickr), Estrellas del Ring, The Gladiatores]
1) AstroLux & Eclipse b Black Metal (EDM) & Destello Negro
2) Kilvan & Yoruba b Alex Segura Jr. & Kronoz
3) Alex Segura, Apolo Estrada Jr., Corsario Negro Jr., Drako b Black Shadow Jr., Soy Raymunda, Terremoto Negro, Zaifro
Straight falls. Soy Raymunda was bloodied.
4) Fénix b Belial [AAA FUSION] Black Terry Jr. (highlights) (posted by tvluchadelpasado)
Fenix is champion. Fenix won with a double knee drop. Seventh known defense (though it’s eighth by Fenix’s count – we’re probably missing one.)
5) Pentagón Jr. b Arez [? STRONG STYLE, hair] Black Terry Jr. (highlights) (posted by )
Arez is some Strong Style champion. Actual belt was a WCW World Championship replica. Pentagon won whatever it was. Match was also mask vs hair, and Arez was shaved. Money thrown in.
6) Monsther Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown b Demon Rocker, Machine Rocker, Soul Rocker [AAA TRIOS]
Psycho Circus kept their trios titles. Sixth known defense.

Black Terry Jr. has highlights of Fenix vs Belial and Arez vs Pentagon Jr., which means you’ll be able to buy them thru his website. Tercera Caida – which looks like it’ll air on Thursday this week – was also shooting this show. The Estrellas del Ring recap doesn’t mention the main event as a title match, but the idea was three title matches for their third anniversary show.

CMLL (MON) 03/31/2014 Arena Puebla [Periodico Enfoque]
1) Ares, Guerrero Espacial, Hechicero b Paris, Robin, Tigre Rojo Jr.
2) Blue Center, Espíritu Maligno, Pierrothito b Asturiano, Eléctrico, Último Dragoncito
Rudos took 1/3, Espiritu beating Asturiano.
3) Boby Zavala b Stigma [lightning]
Zavala won via powerbomb in eight minutes.
4) Kráneo, Morphosis, Mr. Águila, Olímpico, Ripper b Averno, Euforia, Gran Guerrero, Mephisto, Niebla Roja [cibernetico]
Eliminator order: Gran Guerrero (Olimpico), Kraneo (Averno), Niebla Roja (Ripper), Olimpico (Euforia), Morphosis (Averno), Euforia (Mr. Aguila), Averno (Mr. Aguila), Ripper (Mephisto), Mephisto (Mr. Aguila via foul after Ripper distraction). Averno challenged for a hair/mask vs hair/mask match.
5) Mr. Niebla & Negro Casas b La Sombra & Volador Jr.
Straight fall for the rudos for usual Sombra/Volador problems. Casas wanted a title match against Volador, but Volador & Sombra were preoccupied with their usual hair vs mask challenges.

I guess Mr. Aguila is kept around because people like him, but I can’t figure why he wins. (That’s the Invasors in total.) Really dumb to allow Stigma to lose here unless there’s an immediate plan for a bigger win (which there probably isn’t.)

CMLL’s preview of tonight’s show focuses on Triton, but the actual top issue is the Averno/Mistico feud. That seems a week or two away from a title match, so tonight is Mistico, Sombra and Triton versus Averno, Puma and Mephisto. In the odd planning department, Hechicero is in a lightning match right before he starts seven weeks of lightning matches.

Hombre Bala Jr. replaces Metalico tonight in Arena Mexico. Dragon Rojo Jr. returns to action by replacing Mephisto on Sunday.

03/28-03/30 lucha videos

Everything’s back to normal, more or less. I’ve got some stuff which aired last week, including audio for the two IWRG matches which had no sound last week.

DailyMotion took down Friday’s segunda due to a copyright claim. They didn’t touch anything else, so I’m guessing it was a music claim – it’s up there again with no entrances and the logo covered up and hasn’t been taken down. I think I could probably sneak them back onto YouTube if I just covered up the logo, but I wouldn’t want to get a usable channel taken down and I’m not sure everyone wants a third channel. (Plus, it takes much longer to get that logo on there.)

DailyMotion also took down the ability to create playlists. I have no idea why.
