Three way apuesta match in Puebla, En Busca de un Idolo, Averno, Konnan

CMLL (MON) 04/14/2014 Arena Puebla [Periodico Enfoque]
1) Espiritu Negro, King Jaguar, Siki Ozama Jr. b Águila Egipcia, Milenium, Sensei
2) Asturiano, Hombre Bala Jr., Súper Halcón Jr. b Blue Center, Espíritu Maligno, Hooligan
Center & Maligno didn’t get along again, both wanting to beat Asturiano. The three agreed to a triangle apuesta match (mask vs mask vs hair) next Monday.
3) Dragón Rojo Jr., Pólvora, Rey Escorpión b La Máscara, Stigma, Stuka Jr.
Rudos took 1/3, Escorpion pulling Mascara’s mask and pinning him for the win.
4) Atlantis, La Sombra, Rush b Rey Bucanero, Terrible, Vangellys
Tecnicos took 1/3.
5) Mephisto b Mr. Águila [MEX LH]
Mephisto came in as champions. Bad match, with Mephisto hurting himself on a third fall dive but still winning the match. Sixth defense.

Not sure I’ve got the right finish on the second. The description and the result they list don’t exactly match and there’s no second source today. A three way where two people have masks and one person has hair usually means the guy with no mask is going to be bald. Not sure that’s the case here. Blue Center was added to the feud late, hasn’t ever quite fit on the rudo since moving over there a couple years ago, and is around 40 years old. This might be his moment.

Even if you want to keep employing Mister Aguila for some reason, can they please stop doing singles matches with him?

Tonight’s CMLL show includes Cachorro/Soberano Jr. and Dragon Lee/Star Jr. in the En Bucsa de un Idolo tournament and no particular ongoing feuds because it’s the week after the last one ended. The first five matches should air on Terra starting at 7:30pm CT, though there’s no preview up for it there right now.

Guadalajara has a good main event of La Mascara, La Sombra and Valiente vs Ephesto, Mephisto and Averno. It’s also possible the last match for Averno in a CMLL ring for the time being. (He’s got a Puebla fair show on Thursday too.) It’s not a certainty anyone is ever jumping to AAA until they actually show up on their TV. It seems like less than 10% of the rumored names actually making the moves. The lineups with Sin Cara, Averno and AAA luchadors suggest people are making decisions based on Averno making the jump. Averno is likely to work out his CMLL schedule even if he’s jumping. CMLL doesn’t seem to pull people, and Averno would want to leave on the best terms possible in case he needed to come back someday.

Konnan’s being listed for a retirement match on 04/25 in Ecatepec versus Guerrero Siam on a free kid’s show. Obviously, Konnan’s not doing a retirement match in Ecatepec, versus whoever Guerrero Siam and most definitely not on a free show – Konnan says he didn’t confirm anything and definitely not a retirement match.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update and PosterMania for the week.

Black Terry Jr. has highlights of the multiman match from WCS show this weekend.

Villano IV is excited for his match with Blue Demon this Saturday, and plans on making his match alone with the price of the ticket.

Oro Azul and Black Extreme had an in-ring contract signing for a mask match on 04/27.

Cronicas y Leyndas looks back at Emilio Charles Jr. defeating el Dandy.

2) Metaleon & Mr. Leo vs Anubis Black & Picudo Jr.
3) Black Terry, Imposible, Látigo vs Guerrero Mixtico, Hip Hop Man, Tony Rivera

No cage match (or tag title match) yet, but the Neza/IWRG feud keeps on going in the tercera. Imposible andLatigo may not be on the same page.

The stream I use to record Puebla was down all weekend – only it occurs to me now that TVC may have streamed it on uStream. Oops.
