13) Violento Jack © b Super Crazy and Crazy Boy [DTU]
No Aeroboy (in CZW instead) and maybe not an expolsive match, but made a DTU title match. Crazy hardcore match with Gigante Karnov wandering thru and throwing Crazy Boy into lightubes that were also on fire (?) Violento Jack beat Super Crzy while Crazy Boy was out of the ring. Violento Jack retained his title.

Ring was a bit away from the fans, but it looked like a big crowd. Random tall guy coming in and beating up everyone feels out of the UWA playbook, but I’m not sure who plays Canek here. (Possibly Canek.)

CMLL (TUE) 06/17/2014 Arena México [CMLL]
1) Bengala & Leono b Akuma & Apocalipsis
Tecnicos took 2/3.
2) Black Panther & Starman b Espiritu Negro & Guerrero Negro
Tecnicos took 1/3.
3) Amapola, Dalys, Zeuxis b Estrellita, La Vaquerita, Marcela
Rudas took 1/3, Zeuxis beat Marcela.
4) Arkángel de la Muerte, Hechicero, Misterioso Jr. b Cachorro, Dragon Lee, Gallo
Rudos took 1/3, Arkangel pulling Gallo’s mask and beating him. Arkangel wants a title rematch. Gallo wants Arkangel’s mask.
5) Ángel de Oro, Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr. DQ Cavernario, Felino, Herodes Jr.
Tecnicos took 2/3, the last when Cavernario fouled Oro and took his mask.
6) Fuego, Valiente, Volador Jr. b Ephesto, Gran Guerrero, Negro Casas
Tecnicos took 1/3.

The Gallo/Arkangel feud will not either go away or actually climax. It just keeps on going. The En Busca de un Idolo guys playing background figures to that feud is an ominous look at a bleak future.

On the other hand, it’s possible I’ve complained willed the Zeuxis/Marcela into existence. Or it’s just going as nowhere as Zeuxis/Estrellita.

CMLL (TUE) 06/17/2014 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Acertijo & Demonio Rojo b Brillante & El Divino
Rudos took 2/3.
2) Leo, Metatrón, Sky Kid b Artillero, Magnum, Súper Comando
Tecnicos took 1/3.
3) Maléfico, Sangre Azteca, Virus b Rey Cometa, Stuka Jr., Tritón
Rudos took 2/3, with Malefico and Stuka trading all the falls.
4) La Máscara, Máximo, Super Porky b Kráneo, Mr. Águila, Olímpico
Tecnicos took 1/3. No mention of Mascara issues.
5) Atlantis, Marco Corleone, Titán DQ Euforia, Niebla Roja, Último Guerrero
Tecnicos took 1/3, when UG fouled Atlantis again.

I think CMLL is doing Atlantis & Ultimo Guerrero at the anniversary show just because I don’t want to imagine another year of them feuding.

En Busca de un Idolo estimated standings, as of 10:27 AM. (They closed the polls about an hour later.)

259 Hechicero (40 points in this week's fan polls)
199 Cavernario (37)
193 Dragon Lee (27)
192 Cachorro (34)

That’s using a strict ratio of points, which is not what they usually do. Cavernario pulled away a bit last night, to the point where I’d guess he’s more likely to be the final, but it’s still close enough the math could turn out another way (or more votes come before they close the poll.) CMLL should announce the finalists on today’s CMLL Informa (Terra, 5pm.)

CMLL added Stuka, Titan, Rey Cometa vs Polvora, Tiger, Puma to Friday’s show. That’s a good match in itself and great that it’ll air on Terra (before En Busca de un Idolo.) It also means Leyenda de Azul is more likely to be a cibernetico, which produces a better match than a CMLL one night tournament every time. Perhaps CMLL will make the format clear on Informa.

Rob has highlights of 03/25/14 CMLL, with the En Busca de un Idolo cibernetico.

An old interview with El Santo talking about his dealings with movie companies. It reads like business dealings seldom went smoothly.

Segunda Caida reviews Hijo del Santo vs Ultimo Guerrero from 2005.

Diosa Atena took Guerrera Nocturna’s mask.

ChilangaMask announced they’ll return 07/20 in Coliseo Coacalco, with Zoom Driver vs Carisma.



IWRG (SUN) 06/22/2014 Arena Naucalpan
1) Black Niko & Vampiro Metalico II vs Atomic Star & Power Bull
2) Alfa & Omega vs Anubis Black & Zurdog
3) Emperador Azteca, Imposible, Metaleon vs Canis Lupus, El Hijo del Diablo, Picudo Jr.
4) Relámpago & Súper Nova vs Oficial 911 & Oficial AK47
5) Hijo De Dos Caras, Máscara Sagrada, Veneno vs Fuerza Guerrera, Hijo de Máscara Año 2000, X-Fly

Mascara Sagrada appeared to turn the rudo last Sunday, appears to be a tecnico this Sunday. (The bigger shows seem to be an every other week thing.) IWRG will never run out of metallic vampires.


CMLL (TUE) 06/24/2014 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) El Divino & Leo vs Infierno & Ráfaga
2) Astral, Meteoro, Último Dragoncito vs Pequeño Olímpico, Pequeño Violencia, Pierrothito
3) La Vaquerita, Marcela, Silueta vs Amapola, La Seductora, Princesa Blanca
4) La Máscara, La Sombra, Rush vs Euforia, Niebla Roja, Shocker
5) Atlantis & Titán vs Gran Guerrero & Último Guerrero and Blue Panther & Cachorro and Cavernario & Mr. Niebla [Copa Express]

They’ve been advertising the 55th Anniversary shows all months, but Sunday’s a cage match and Tuesday’s a tournament, so I guess this is the week that counts. Atlantis & Titan are the hometown team in the main event.
