Puebla, Arena Mexico preview

CMLL (THU) 04/17/2014 Plaza de Toros El Relicario, Puebla, Puebla [Porra Fresa, Sexenio]
1) Oro Jr. & Soberano Jr. b Hijo del Signo & Stigma
Stigma replaced Akuma.
2) Cavernario & Herodes Jr. b Black Panther & Cachorro
3) Fuego & Sagrado b Gran Guerrero & Misterioso Jr.
4) Atlantis, Diamante Azul, Volador Jr. b Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto
Diamante Azul replaced Thunder

The Sexenio recap says over 3000 people attended the show. They also said Thunder wrestled in the main event, so hopefully they’re better at counting people than identifying luchadors. Averno did appear in the main event. CMLL runs free shows here every Thursday thru the 8th.

Tonight’s Arena Mexico main event, Mistico, Valiente, Volador contra Kraneo, Ripper and Shocker, appears to be another chapter in the less than enthralling Volador/Ripper feud. Match still might good, and probably better than the semimain (because Pierroth is back.) The Terra broadcast portion of this show might be the best part: Hechicero teams up with Raizel & Cancerbero again to face CMLL’s Cadetes del Espacio, a women’s trios which appears to be much better than the Tuesday one, and En Busca de un Idolo matches with Dragon Lee & Guerrero Negro Jr. (lots of nonsensical spots!) and Cachorro versus Cavernario (which should just be good.)  I think I’m otherwise occupied tonight, but feel free to holler at me on Twitter about stuff I should GIF later.

There was a 7 magnitude earthquake near Acapulco earlier today. It could be felt strongly in Mexico City. There’s no word yet about damage.

This week’s Tercera Caida has interviews with Cuervo & Pentagon Jr. In the after show video, Cuervo says he doesn’t know what happened to Ozz. Here’s Ozz at a press conference for an AAA show on 04/27. Glad I could help! Ozz (under that name) may not be around as a TV character for the moment.

Hijo del Santo’s column is on the recently deceased Dick Angelo. Santo’s 04/27 appearance in Monterrey is said to be, on both Facebook and on Tercera Caida, is only an autograph signing.

The ban on lucha libre in Arena Kalaka has already been lifted (before I even wrote it was banned.) Metro of Ciudad Juarez was the one who attacked a fan, apologized for his behavior, and felt the entire arena shouldn’t to be blame for his action. Apparently the commission agreed.

LuchaWorld has Alfredo on the second week of En Busca de un Idolo.

Satanico talks about next weekend’s match with El Dandy.

DJ Spectro writes about the strange case of Mishima Ota, who won the Mexican lightweight championship but was then declared Japanese.
