CMLL (SUN) 06/01/2014 Arena Coliseo [CMLL]
1) Robin & Sensei b Cholo & Zayco
2) Demus 3:16, Pequeño Warrior, Pierrothito b Astral, Bam Bam, Fantasy
Astral replaced Último Dragoncito. Rudos took 2/3.
3) Metálico, Ramstein, Raziel b Dragon Lee, Oro Jr., Stigma
Rudos took 2/3. Metalico accidentally pulled of Oro’s mask in the second for the DQ, then pulled it off right in front of the ref in the third, who didn’t see and counted pin.
4) Delta, Fuego, Guerrero Maya Jr. b Skándalo, Tiger, Virus
Tecnicos took 2/3.
5) Titán © b Niebla Roja [MEX WELTER]
Titan was the champion. Dragon Lee seconded him while Virus seconded Niebla Roja. Roja took the first with a middle rope Furia Roja (his cristo faceslam). Titan took the second with Titanics. Third fall went a long time. Finish didn’t go quite like they wanted, but Titan eventually won with a handstanding rope flip moonsault. Titan’s third defense.
6) La Máscara, La Sombra, Marco Corleone b Felino, Negro Casas, Ripper
Marco Corleone worked rudo, getting along with his partners. Team Sombra took falls 1/3, the last when Sombra exaggerated a knee injury after a dive to distract Tirantes from Mascara fouling Negro Casas. Sombra was limping a little bit after the match.
The original plan for the finish looked to like Titan was going to reverse the middle Furia Roja into a fujiwara, but Titan slipped, then tried to just catch Niebla Roja as he came down but that didn’t work quite right either. This match was still good, though a step below the earlier big Titan matches. I think I’m also a little jaded by the En Busca de un Idolo matches, because I expect their craziness everywhere.
Unclear if Marco working with Sombra & Mascara was meant to be just a one time thing, but he implied as such on Twitter.
CMLL (SUN) 06/01/2014 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [@acogdl]
1) El Tapatío b Marvel
2) El Brillante & William Rock b Furia Nazi & Jocker
Tecnicos took 1/3.

4) Boby Zavala, Cavernario, Demonio Maya b Black Metal, Esfinge, Gallo

5) Exterminador b Évola [hair]
Evola fouled Exterminador in the first and got the pin, but Exterminador came back and won the next two.
6) Sagrado, Super Porky, Volador Jr. DQ Dragón Rojo Jr., Euforia, Mr. Águila
Tecnicos took 1/3, Euforia fouling Volador.
Gallo versus Bobby Zavala will be a thing.
This week’s AAA TV announced the post Verano de Escandalo schedule. AAA takes off the weekend of 06/13, then return to action on 06/20 in Puebla, 06/27 in Queretaro and 07/03 in Xalapa (which is already being promoted locally.) Basically, they’re running every weekend and not in Mexico City; there’s no way AAA is actually pulling off the 10-12 tapings in Gimnasio Juan de la Barrera they originally promised unless they start running a lot of them back to back. It doesn’t really matter to anyone but the Mexico City Sports Department, but it’s weird they promised to do something like that in the first place.
Soldado Diabolico lost his mask to Dave the Clown in an Arena Queretaro cage match. He was revealed as Fidel García, 25 yeards old, 8 a luchador. Dandy beat Satanico in the semifinal.
Tercera Caida thanks the fans for 60,000 likes.
Super Libre had coverage of the Arena Jalisco show and a lot of interviews.
SuperLuchas rates the top 5 feuds never to actually have their mask vs mask match.
DJ Spectro looks back a bloody Satanico versus a rookie Atlantis match of 1983 and Climax II.
Lucha Libre in Japan
06/01 NJPW: Mascara Dorada b Jushin Lyger [BOSJ, match 3]. Dorada improves to 2-1. The next show is on 06/03, where Dorada will automatically go to 3-1 since that would’ve been his Alex Koslov match. Dorada’s next actual match is on 06/04 versus Ricochet; if he can win that one, he’s got a real chance of making the next round.
CMLL (SUN) 06/08/2014 Arena Coliseo
1) Molotov & Sensei vs El Rebelde & Zayco
2) Bam Bam, Eléctrico, Fantasy vs Pequeño Olímpico, Pequeño Universo 2000, Pequeño Warrior
3) Oro Jr., Sagrado, Tritón vs Metálico, Puma, Skándalo
4) Valiente vs Vangellys [lightning]
5) Blue Panther, Fuego, La Máscara vs Gran Guerrero, Niebla Roja, Virus
6) Atlantis, Máximo, Rush vs Felino, Negro Casas, Rey Escorpión
Kind of an ordinary show. Los Indeseable on different teams to make two matches rough. Valiente and Vangellys just happened a month ago. Metalico/Oro Jr. looks like it’s headed to a Sunday mask match show a few weeks from now.
