CMLL (FRI) 06/27/2014 Arena México [CMLL]
1) Robin & Starman b Inquisidor & Súper Comando
2) Dark Angel, Marcela, Princesa Sugehit DQ Dalys, La Seductora, Princesa Blanca
Challenged teased a Seductora/Blanca vs Marcela/Sugehit hair match.
3) Niebla Roja b Guerrero Maya Jr. [lightning]
unannounced bonus match. Roja submitted Maya.
4) Cachorro, Cavernario, Dragon Lee, Negro Casas, Soberano Jr. b Guerrero Negro Jr., Hechicero, Star Jr., Súper Halcón Jr., Virus [En Busca de un Idolo, cibernetico]
Elimination order went Star Jr. (by Cachorro), Soberano Jr. (by Guerrero Negro), Super Halcon (by Cavernario), Cachorro (by Hechicero), Guerrero Negro (by Dragon Lee), Hechicero & Cavernario double pinned, Dragon Lee (by Virus, foul), Virus (by Negro Casas). Negro’s got the winning pin two years in a row.
5) Blue Panther, Titán, Volador Jr. b Dragón Rojo Jr., Ephesto, Rey Escorpión
Ephesto replaced Polvora on Monday. Blue Panther replaced Valiente unannounced. Rey Escorpion and Dragon Rojo had problems in the third fall (and were said to have problems on Sunday), and Volador took advantage to win. Tecnicos took 1/3.
6) Atlantis, Mr. Niebla, Shocker b La Sombra, Rush, Último Guerrero [Relevos Increíbles]
Team Atlantis took 2/3. UG and Atlantis traded the first two falls with their holds. In the third, Niebla beat Rush with his feet on the ropes, Sombra tossed his mask to Shocker to draw the DQ, but Shocker just covered him before the ref saw to win. Plenty of challenges post match.

CMLL did not air on Terra last night. There was no explanation from CMLL or Terra. Terra had advertised the airing earlier in the week, and did not reply to inquiries about why the show wasn’t streaming. Terra’s done the same thing when the show actually was pulled from airing. I suspect CMLL decided the show was not to air tonight. (Since Informa did air, CMLL is probably still planning on airing events on Terra, but two events missed like this in the same week is not a good sign.)

It is beyond me why either company couldn’t just say they weren’t airing the show. It’s offensive CMLL refuses to exert the very little effort it would’ve taken just to say “sorry, we’re not going to be on tonight”.

This is a bit unfair, but this sort of thing is why you should probably not buy TripleMania on iPPV live. I’m going to buy it, because I’m a crazy person with a blog. I recommend everyone else just waiting to see if everything went right and then buying it on replay. The good thing with CMLL is their shows are free, so it costs only time. AAA’s iPPV won’t be free (it’s got Pay right there in the name.) I know they’ll give the money again back if it doesn’t work again, but why even bother with it if they can be bothered to prove they can put on the show?

I completely recommend going to TripleMania if you’re close enough to Arena Ciudad de Mexico. If you’re not, maybe go watch SummerSlam, maybe find something else to do a nice summer night. If everything goes right, the show will still be ready for you later. And if it’s not, then you would’ve wasted your evening anyway.

No idea if CMLL will air on Terra this Sunday. Don’t play this Sunday around that either.

back to show 

Sombra/Rush vs Niebla/Shocker is the first marketable concept for an anniversary show main event outside of Atlantis/Ultimo Guerrero. There’s some obvious problems. It would be X-Fly levels of cynicism to have Shocker put up (and ultimately lose) his hair on two straight CMLL major shows. Namajague did lose his mask and hair in separate matches within a month of each other, so it’s not out of the question. A more palatable solution would be to have Negro Casas in Shocker’s spot (and the most We’ve Learned Nothing! setup would be Sombra/Niebla vs Rush/Casas relevos suicidas, where Sombra & Niebla end up in the apuesta match.) The other problem is trusting Mr. Niebla to make it to the Anniversary show.

Juicio Final seems much more likely to be a random women’s cage. They left it at a tag team apuesta match last night, but CMLL never does those with women and they frequently do the cage match deal. The cage match is never a good match, but it did seem to draw more than people were expecting last time around (Goya Kong’s loss.) The finish is likely to be the same here, with someone no longer needing to cover their face up in photos any more.

The Revolucionarios are breaking up? I have no idea why they would be breaking up, nor am I quite sure which guy would be going tecnico. (Dragon Rojo, maybe? He does have a few more tecnico spots of late.)  It seems like a unit that’s better together than they would be apart, and not one I have especially a lot of interest in feuding among themselves.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.

La Mascara, who was given the national welterweight championship and teamed with Mistico quickly upon become taking the Mascara name, says he was not given anything just by being part of the Brazo family. (Mascara claims year of training, as if others didn’t train for years.)

DJ Spectro looks back at La Medusa vs La Briosa.


CMLL (FRI) 07/04/2014 Arena México
1) Hombre Bala Jr. & Súper Halcón Jr. vs Cancerbero & Raziel
2) La Vaquerita, Lluvia, Princesa Sugehit vs Dalys, La Seductora, Tiffany
3) Máximo, Rey Cometa, Super Porky vs Rey Bucanero, Tiger, Vangellys
4) Diamante Azul vs Terrible [lightning]
5) Atlantis, Titán, Valiente vs Gran Guerrero, Niebla Roja, Último Guerrero
6) La Máscara, La Sombra, Rush vs Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas, Shocker

The top two feuds keep on going. Note the women’s match includes Seductora and Sugehit but not Blanca and Marcela, which is the opening to include even more people (or, much less likely, just switch it to a Sugehit/Seductora feud.) The opener looks good but hasn’t even been exactly the match it could’ve been because of the restrictions put on openers.

indy (SAT) 07/19/2014 Arena San Juan Pantitlan, Ciudad de México, Distrito Federal
1) Broken Clown, Dave The Clown, Rothen Clown vs Canek Jr., Hijo del Fishman, Killer Jr.
2) Rayostar & Skyman vs Fly Star & Toxin Boy
3) Puma (CMLL) & Trauma I vs Tiger & Trauma II [Relevos Increíbles]
4) Felino, Heavy Metal, Negro Casas vs Black Terry, Negro Navarro, Pirata Morgan

The relevos increibles should be interesting. Main event could be good.

  1. I know it really does not matter to CMLL but to me Niebla/Casas Vs Rush/Sombra makes more sense – it’s Peste Negra vs. Los Whatever-they-are-this-week.

    But sense and CMLL booking are not good friends

  2. Rush/La Sombra vs. Mr. Niebla/ Shocker is very attractive feud, but you have a point, Cubs, in that it would be too soon for Shocker to lose his hair again. Also, La Sombra would have to turn rudo, because taking another big mask, especially a crowd favorite like Mr. Niebla,he’d just get booed out of the building.

  3. Some really odd decisions by CMLL lately… or normal by their standards. They built Sujei/Blanca up so much it seemed like a lock for Juicio Final. Now… just stick a random group of women in a cage match instead. Does that inspire any confidence they’ll actually do Atlantis/UG instead of sticking people in a cage at the Anniversary Show?

    The Revolucionarios split makes no sense but perhaps it’s not going to be a turn for anyone. Just more guys in the middle allowing Dragon Rojo/Escorpion to participate in more relevos incriebles matches on opposite sides.

  4. I know Heavy Metal hasn’t been on AAA shows lately but is he officially gone from there?

    Nice to see none of the Busca finalists are on the Friday show.

  5. Heavy’s still listed on AAA’s website but hasn’t been around since TripleMania. He was kind of just used because they just needed a name for a loss and probably will be back next time they need the same.
