CMLL (SUN) 05/25 Arena Coliseo [CMLL, LuchaWorld, Terra]
1) Akuma & Cholo b Bengala & Molotov
Rudos took 1/3.
2) Bam Bam, Eléctrico, Stukita b Demus 3:16, Mercurio, Pequeño Universo 2000
Tecnicos took 2/3.
3) Arkángel de la Muerte, Sangre Azteca, Skándalo b Gallo, Súper Halcón Jr., Tritón
Skandalo’s DF return and Gallo’s first DF appearance in a couple years. Arkangel and Gallo feuded a bit. Rudos took 2/3.
4) Dragón Rojo Jr., Ephesto, Mephisto b Blue Panther, Fuego, Sagrado
Rudos took 2/3, Mephisto defeating Panther.
5) Niebla Roja, Pierroth, Shocker b La Máscara, Marco Corleone, Titán
Rudos took 1/3, Niebla Roja beating Titan with his double chickenwing faceslam both times. Roja demanded a title match and took Titan’s mask post match. Better match than expected.
6) Rush b Volador Jr.
Rush jumped Volador with help from a Volador distraction and threatened a martinete, but Tirantes stopped it. Rush was eventually DQed for stomping Volador in the corner too long. Rush won the second fall clean with a dropkick in the corner. Rush bumped referee Tirantes out of the ring after a Volador backcracker in the third. Volador got the visual pin, then took a backcracker from La Mascara. Rush added a senton and covered as Tirantes climbed back in to count three. Volador challenged for hair match, but Rush refused.
Better than expected show with the fifth match succeeding by working the match differently. La Mascara couldn’t refuse to get along with his partners because they were too busy brawling elsewhere. Roja and Titan played off each other well. I have pretty high expectations for that match.
Main event was not the all out Volador/Rush match it could’ve been – they’re still in the process of repeating the new setup for a month in hopes everyone gets it.

Super Libre talked a lot about the upcoming Arena Jalisco match.
A recap of a recent CMLL spot show in Cuernavaca notes this was Canelo Casas’s debut there as a rudo. He had been wrestling their locally prior to his CMLL debut. Canelo has not been strong as a rudo so far, and I wonder if it’s Angel de Plata situation where he’s on the wrong side.
