Titan beats world champ, Oficials new tag champs, Guadalajara cage match

CMLL (SUN) 06/15/2014 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [@acogdl]
1) El Yaqui & Satara b Dr. Frezzer & El Tapatío
Match was not at all what was listed (Brillante & El Divino vs Acertijo & Demonio Rojo.) Rudos took 1/3.
2) Explosivo b Jocker
3) Espectrum & Ráfaga b Exterminador & León Blanco
Rudos took 1/3
4) Boby Zavala, Cavernario, Demonio Maya, Sádico b Black Metal, Esfinge, Gallo, Rey Cometa
Tecnicos were DQed in the first when Esfinge fouled Demonio Maya. Rudos stole the second. Challenges followed.
5) Goya Kong & Silueta b Tiffany & Zeuxis
Tecnicas took 2/3.
6) Titán © b Dragón Rojo Jr. [MEX WELTER]
Titan took falls 2/3 to keep the title. Titan’s fourth defense.

Titan beats the world champion, so he totally gets a world title shot – unless the title distinctions are all meaningless, then I guess he doesn’t. Wonder which way it’ll go.

Four match is actually setting up a cage match next week.

1) Black Terry, Imposible, Metaleon b Guerrero Mixtico, Hip Hop Man, Tony Rivera
2) Bombero Infernal, Dr. Cerebro, Golden Magic b Astro Rey Jr., Canis Lupus, Eterno
Bombero replaced Pantera (who was in Guadalajara)
3) Oficial 911 & Oficial AK47 b Apolo Estrada Jr. & El Hijo del Diablo © [IWRG IC TAG]
In the third, Diablo snuck in a foul on 911, but AK47 snuck in and returned the favor and the Oficials took the win. Oficial 911 & Oficial AK47 are the Gringos VIP fall on first defense.
4) Máscara Sagrada, Relámpago, Súper Nova b Demon Clown, Trauma I, Trauma II
Dos Caras was honored before the match. Tecnicos took 2/3.
5) Dr. Wagner Jr. & Hijo De Dos Caras DQ LA Park & Pirata Morgan
Usual crowd brawl with Park & Wagner. Park & Morgan took the first, Wagner & Dos the second. During the third, a person in a LA Park mask (probably meant to be the same one as two weeks ago) ran in and attacked the actual Wagner. That appears to be the end of the match, though it’s not clear. Fake LA Park unmasked as – Mascara Sagrada! Demon Clown came out to be helped, with Demon, Park and Wagner all apparently allied and Pirata Morgan going with the tecnicos in the fight. Everyone made challenges – which turned out to be a cage match for the IWRG Heavyweight Title for some reason.

Really big turn out for this show, close to full or actually full judging from the pictures. Maybe the largest crowd since Wagner and Park were here together back in October? As absurd as the cage match bit is – and I still don’t know how the heavyweight title gets included – they should do another strong turnout just based on the names.

Mascara Sagrada explains his action to +LuchaTV (he’d like to be feuding with LA Park), while Dr. Wagner talks up his team with Pirata Morgan. This is what happens you don’t move when LA Park is coming your way.

Rey Escorpion defends the CMLL Light Heavyweight championship in Puebla. Escorpion is probably retaining. The bigger mystery is if Atlantis takes Aguijon Mortal.

Felina Metalika won the new Sanchez Women’s Championship at Arena Neza on Sunday.

Segunda Caida reviews El Hijo del Santo vs Atlantis.

Emperador Azteca has recovered from his injury, wants revenge on Impossile.

Tacubo continues his anti-bullying program.

Random factoid: Queretaro’s “Movimiento Ciudadano” party made 24 thousand pesos running a WWE show in 2013.

Tercera Caida is two hours this week?

5) Black Terry & Golden Magic vs Fuerza Guerrera & Guerrero Mixtico

A Wednesday show. Magic/Fuerza still pair off. Unsure why Neza Boy Ciclon Black is on the tecnico side now, I’ve clearly missed something. Atomic Star’s first unmasked match here.

CMLL (SUN) 06/22/2014 Arena Coliseo
1) Magnus & Metatrón vs Camorra & Inquisidor
2) Angelito, Bam Bam, Eléctrico vs Mercurio, Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Olímpico
3) Fuego, Oro Jr., Pegasso vs Metálico, Raziel, Virus
4) Blue Panther vs Ephesto [lightning]
5) Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr., Stuka Jr. vs Kamaitachi, Puma, Shigeo Okumura
6) Máximo, Super Porky, Volador Jr. vs Dragón Rojo Jr., Pólvora, Rey Escorpión

Oro/Metalico feud returns. Semimain could be good, and the lightning match is a old Lagunero fight.

No sign of Marcela & Seductora. I thought Marcela might have gotten hurt on a dropkick right before the finish, maybe the weird DQ was just a way of getting out of the match.

CMLL (SUN) 06/22/2014 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) El Ídolo & Javier Cruz Jr. vs Ángel del Mal & El Yaqui
2) Explosivo & William Rock vs Évola & Jocker
3) El Brillante & Virgo vs Acertijo & Demonio Rojo
4) León Blanco, Sky Kid, Smaker vs Magnum, Mr. Trueno, Rey Trueno
5) Atlantis, La Máscara, Titán vs Felino, Negro Casas, Rey Bucanero
6) Gallo vs Cavernario, Rey Cometa, Boby Zavala, Black Metal, Sádico, Esfinge, Demonio Maya [cage, hair, mask]

Sadico (who has an Eterno mohawk) and Demonio Maya (who’s masked) seem like the most likely bets here. Remember when Felino and Rey Bucanero were feuding? CMLL doesn’t! That was even a Juicio Final caliber apuesta match…
