CMLL (TUE) 06/03/2014 Arena México [CMLL]
1) Flyer & Leono b Camorra & Espanto Jr.
2) Black Panther, Gallo, Súper Halcón Jr. DQ Arkángel de la Muerte, Artillero, Súper Comando
Straight falls, Gallo beating Arkangel in the first and Arkangel pulling Gallo’s mask in the second.
3) Amapola, Tiffany, Zeuxis b Estrellita, Goya Kong, Lluvia
Rudas took 2/3, Zeuxis beating Estrellita again.
4) Tritón b Shigeo Okumura [lightning]
Triton 450 splash for the win.
5) Ángel de Oro, Fuego, Rey Cometa b Kamaitachi, Morphosis, Rey Escorpión
Tecnicos took 1/3 in Angel de Oro’s return to Arena Mexico.
6) La Máscara, Stuka Jr., Valiente b Boby Zavala, Mephisto, Terrible
Tecnicos took 1/3.

The band Las Victimas del Dr. Cerebro was in attendance.  No angles, unless Zeuxis getting a title shot against Estrellita is actually happening – no title challenges yet.

CMLL (TUE) 06/03/2014 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [@acogdl]
1) El Divino b Magnum
2) Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Violencia, Pierrothito b Astral, Eléctrico, Meteoro
Meteoro replaced Dragoncito, who’s missed consecutive shows. Rudos took 1/3.
3) Dragón Rojo Jr., Ephesto, Olímpico b Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr., Smaker
Rudos took 2/3.
4) Máximo & Super Porky b Kráneo & Pólvora
Polvora replaced Misterioso. Tecnicos took 2/3.
5) Euforia, Gran Guerrero, Último Guerrero b Atlantis, Blue Panther, Volador Jr.
Rudos took 2/3.
6) Rush b Negro Casas
Rush won a quick first fall, Negro took the second with a half crab, and Rush took the third for the win.

Not a lot of details on Rush/Casas.

AAA has two TV tapings this week, starting tonight in Celaya. The card is in a weird place; it’ll air hours before Verano de Escandalo, but it’s mostly a lame duck show with that card not announced. As with all recent AAA TV tapings, the main event has mystery men listed on both sides. Averno is likely on the rudo side. Mistico/Sin Cara/whatever will likely make an appearance before the night is over, but it seems likely his first match will take place at Verano de Escandalo and someone else will be on the tecnico side tonight. The semifinal may reveal some future plans – Consejo gets yet another shot at Psycho Circus and trios championship. There’s a thought the Psycho Circus will lose the trios titles, to set up Psycho Clown being spun off onto his own and being replaced in the trio. Psycho Clown really doesn’t need to team regularly with his partners, because AAA doesn’t have frequent title defenses, but a new Psycho Circus ultimately winning the trios titles back would legitimize the new member. In the short term, Texano might get a win so it looks like he has a chance at Verano de Escandalo.

There are seven women in the Reina de Reinas title shot match, but there’s only six who care about winning it. Sexy Star explained she doesn’t care about getting a title shot, because she feels she’s still champion since she never lost. If someone wants to give her a direct title match, that’s fine, but she doesn’t feel she needs to earn one. Maybe she’ll help Taya instead?

Mistico/Sin Cara, Blue Demon Jr., Averno, Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Cibernetico, Villano IV, Psycho Circus, Daga and Chessman are being advertised for the 07/03 AAA TV taping in Xalapa.

CMLL has another edition of CMLL Informa today at 5pm on Terra with Volador Jr., La Sombra and Angel de Oro. Hopefully not Volador and Sombra at the same time, that won’t end well.

I recorded the debut RadioCMLL show for some reason. It’s about an hour (with two random breaks) talking with Rey Bucanero and Shocker.

R de Rudo writes about people critical of how Super Bolido’s dislocated elbow was treated it.

Arturo Beristain talks about training luchador and still giving advice after his students make the CMLL roster. Tanque Infernal, Luzebl Jr., Sucesor, Magnetico and Palomo Rouse are mentioned as training with him currently.

There’s a plan to spread the word of lucha libre by everyone wearing a mask on the Mexico City Metro on September 14.

Ricky Marvin wants the Veracruz government – and the governor himself – to give more support to lucha libre in his home state. This is just billed as Ricky Marvin, luchador, but I think he might be promoting shows as well.

Dralion vs Arez has been added to the 07/05 LuchaMania show.

Segunda Caida reviews Blue Panther, Marco Corleone, Negro Casas vs Atlantis, Mephisto, Toscano

There’s a benefit show for Kaleth on Friday in Tulancingo.

Antrax is now training luchadors in Fresnillo, was the short lived Super Nova in Guadalajara?

Diamante Azul wants a heavyweight title shot and hopes to main event an Anniversary show.

Aeroboy will be in CZW’s Torment of Death on 06/14.

Kaiser Sports has an one two three part interview with CMLL edecan Ana Karina. She’s working on a reggae album.

Lucha Libre in Japan

06/04 NJPW: Ricochet b Mascara Dorada [BOSJ, match 5]
Mascara Dorada is 3-2, six points, actually tied for first, but he probably needed to get this one to advance. He’s got BUSHI tomorrow and Matt Jackson the day after to finish up.


CMLL (TUE) 06/10/2014 Arena México
1) Molotov & Robin vs Cholo & Inquisidor
2) Aéreo, Bam Bam, Stukita vs Mercurio, Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Warrior
3) Pegasso, Rey Cometa, Tritón vs Misterioso Jr., Sangre Azteca, Skándalo
4) Gallo vs Arkángel de la Muerte [lightning]
5) Ángel de Oro, Fuego, Sagrado vs Boby Zavala, Tiger, Vangellys
6) Titán, Valiente, Volador Jr. vs Ephesto, Mephisto, Puma

Main event looks like fun.

The Arkangel/Gallo feud moves to the match that doesn’t air. This is a big development for the 1000-1500 people who go to Tuesday shows.

Why is Pequeno Warrior on all the cards?

No Esterllita/Zeuxis.


CMLL (TUE) 06/10/2014 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Leo & Metatrón vs Mr. Trueno & Rey Trueno
2) Esfinge, Sky Kid, Smaker vs Cancerbero, Espectrum, Raziel
3) Hombre Bala, Stuka Jr., Super Halcon vs Kamaitachi, Maléfico, Shigeo Okumura
4) Marco Corleone, Máximo, Super Porky vs Mr. Águila, Rey Bucanero, Terrible
5) La Máscara, La Sombra, Rush vs Gran Guerrero, Shocker, Último Guerrero

They actually teamed up the evil trio instead of spilling them among different matches. Good job!

Tercera could be good.





WUW MEXICO (SUN) 06/15/2014 Estadio Primero de Mayo, Tulancingo, Hidalgo
1) ? vs ??
2) ? vs ??
3) ? vs ??
4) Radge vs Chris Verrazano
5) Pesadilla vs Artikus, Serpiente, Hardman, Rex Estampida, Estrella Blanca Jr., Ultratumba, Rolling Boy, Escorpion Negro [ruleta de la muerte]
6) Crimson Wraith, Gigante Karnov, Naruto vs Amo de la Noche, Lanzeloth, Sangre Guerrera
7) Super Crazy vs Crazy Boy, Violento Jack, Aero Boy [explosives]

WUW is the Johnny Rodz promotion which has been sending random people to Mexico. More random people here! I must’ve missed CrazyMania 1 thru 3, hope I can still follow the plot here. Main event has a ring with explosions, which may make it tough for a CrazyMania V.


IWRG (SUN) 06/08/2014 Arena Naucalpan
1) Ciclon Black & Sky Ángel vs Kaling Black & Zurdog
2) Látigo & Metaleon vs Anubis Black & Hip Hop Man
3) Alan Extreme, Golden Magic, Imposible vs Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro
4) Relámpago, Súper Nova, Toscano vs Eterno, Trauma I, Trauma II
5) Apolo Estrada Jr., Demon Clown, X-Fly vs Dr. Cerebro, Grond XXX, Veneno

That main event – well, other matches look good.

Shocker outsmarts Sombra, Sin Cara doesn’t get paid

CMLL (MON) 06/02/2014 Arena Puebla [Periodico Enfoque]
1) Flyer & Robin b Fuerza Chicana & Siki Ozama Jr.
2) Blue Center, Pequeño Warrior, Saurón b Astral, Asturiano, Eléctrico
Asturiano ended up with an arm injury, then Warrior pulled Asturiano’s mask and beat him.
3) Kamaitachi, Puma, Shigeo Okumura b Rey Cometa, Stigma, Stuka Jr.
Rudos took 1/3
4) Kráneo, Morphosis, Ripper b Ángel de Oro, Blue Panther, Titán
Rudos took 2/3. Angel de Oro returns with a loss.
5) Pólvora, Rey Escorpión, Shocker b Atlantis, La Sombra, Marco Corleone
Shocker snuck in a foul on Sombra for the win.

Asturiano versus Pequeno Black Warrior appears to be the Arena Puebla Anniversary main event, which seems very unkind to the Arena Puebla fans. Asturiano’s very good, but he could use better competition.

CMLL’s Tuesday show has nothing in particular. The CMLL preview hypes the return of Angel de Oro, who actually returned last night but close enough. His match, with Rey Cometa & Fuego versus Rey Escorpion, Morphosis and Kamaitachi, might end up being the best on the show. Main event is La Mascara, Valiente, Stuka versus Terrible, Mephisto, and Boby Zavala.

The more interesting CMLL show today is over in Guadalajara, with a Negro Casas versus Rush main event. That should air on 06/14, but the Guadalajara shows have had short edited matches the last couple of weeks. This is their second singles match – the last was in November – and while they still tease a hair match occasionally, it doesn’t appear to be in the plans any time soon.

Sin Cara, Argenis, Black Warrior and Averno refused to wrestle on Sunday in Campeche due to issues with the promoters. It appears they were working a two match weekend swing in the area, but the promoter didn’t pay them after Saturday and they walked out when he still didn’t pay him on Sunday. The local luchadors on the show are taking up a legal complaint, saying the promoters didn’t pay the top guys for their hotels or the transportation. The promoters are said to owe 150,000 pesos ($11,598) to various people in total. It was inevitable the Sin Cara post-WWE  tour around Mexico would run into promoters who were in over their head, but it’s still disappointing when it happens.

Taya says she and Sexy Star will work together to make sure one of La Sociedad will win the Reina de Reinas title shot match.

El Angel of Mazatlan retired with a win.

There’s a lucha libre photo exhibition in Xalapa starting on the 7th.


CMLL (SUN) 06/08/2014 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Índigo & Meteoro vs El Piraña & Relampago Azul
2) El Ídolo & Javier Cruz Jr. vs Furia Nazi & Sádico
3) León Blanco vs Infierno
4) Black Metal & Esfinge vs Canelo Casas & Demonio Maya
5) Gallo © vs Boby Zavala [FULL HEAVY]
Gallo is champion, first defense
6) La Sombra, Rey Cometa, Titán vs Cavernario, Dragón Rojo Jr., Mr. Águila

Gallo seems a good bet to keep the title, since he’s still feuding with Arkangel half the time.  Mr. Aguila has almost only been working Sunday Arena Coliseo Guadalajara shows of late, which seem the least valuable to work. That may just be skewed due to the lack of TV, but it has seemed as though Aguila’s previous issues got a response in CMLL’s booking.

CMLL (MON) 06/09/2014 Arena Puebla
1) Leono, Magnus, Paris vs Akuma, Ares, Espíritu Maligno
2) Astral, Asturiano, Eléctrico vs Blue Center, Pequeño Warrior, Saurón
3) Ángel de Oro, Pegasso, Tritón vs Sangre Azteca, Skándalo, Virus
4) Atlantis, Marco Corleone, Máximo vs Rey Bucanero, Rey Escorpión, Terrible
5) La Sombra vs Shocker

Sombra/Shocker should be interesting. As will Sombra versus whoever replaces Shocker.

Sangre de Lobo is Oscar Fernandez and Stryker is Roberto Fernandez. (It’s not mentioned if they are or are not related.)

1) Miss Janeth, Rossy Moreno, Tania b Cristal, Esther Moreno, Lady Apache
2) Gallego, Rocky Santana, Romano Garcia b Cachorro Mendoza, Súper Bólido, Super Kendo
Bolido was hurt in the third fall.
3) Fuerza Guerrera, Jhon Terry, Negro Navarro b Aguila Solitaria, El Indómito, Justiciero
Jhon Terry replaced Scorpio Jr. Indomito replaced Dandy and turned on his partners for the loss.
4) Súper Muñeco, Súper Pinocho, Súper Ratón © b Black Terry, Rambo, Shu el Guerrero [WWA TRIOS]
Trio Fantastia kept the trios titles.
5) Canek, Herodes, Solar I b Máscara Año 2000, Universo 2000, Villano IV
Herodes replaced Enrique Vera. Tecnicos won by DQ when Canek beat up Villano IV in the ring and Villano III made the save.

This is the new 70s/80s/early 90s promotion, which was said to do well in it’s first show in Coliseo Coacalco. This building was much too big for them this time out. Super Bolido messed up his arm badly – dislocated elbow? – and there’s video here if you really want to see.

IWRG (SUN) 06/01/2014 Arena Naucalpan [IWRG]
1) Alan Extreme & Metaleon b Atomic Star & Electro Boy
Alan Extreme replaced Latigob
2) Atomic Star & Mini Cobra b Mini Imperium & Oficialito AK47
Atomic Star replaced Dragoncito de Oro. Mini Imperium’s debut. Straight falls.
3) Apolo Estrada Jr., Avisman, El Hijo del Diablo b Alan Extreme, Dr. Cerebro, Relámpago
Doc submitted Apolo, but Apolo hit Doc with a chair and Diablo got the pin.
4) Máscara Sagrada, Pantera, Veneno b Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Trauma I, Trauma II
Pantera’s first match here since August and Sagrada’s first match since 2012. Tecnicos took 1/3. Pirata faked a foul from Sagrada in the second, Sagrada fouled him and faked a foul in the third. Pantera tried a tope on Trauma I in the third, but Trauma I just moved out of the way and Pantera crashed and burned.
5) Dr. Wagner Jr., Grond XXX, Hijo De Dos Caras b Demon Clown, Eterno, Hijo de Máscara Año 2000
Groon’s match here since 2008. Tecnicos took 2/3. A man in an LA Park mask attacked Wagner after the match, then ran away.

IWRG recaps says it was the actual LA Park who attacked Wagner, but unless LA Park has transporter technology (possible) he was in Arena Coliseo Monterrey while this show was going on. Dr. Wagner did not take kindly to this, and they’ve set up some sort of match for 06/15. You can see Pantera’s dive to nowhere; Trauma I is unapologetic about his dodge.

LuchaMania Monterrey has announced their first match for their 07/05 upcoming show: Charles Lucero vs Black Terry. That’ll be good!

There’s either a loaded AAA house show or a TV taping on 07/15 in Nogales. That’s about when a taping should happen, but there’s no mention of television to go with Sin Cara, Averno, Cibernetico, Psycho Circus and others. No matches announced.

Perro Aguayo Jr. will start appearing in telenova Que Probes Tan Ricos this week. He’s been taping scenes for a while. The shows airs on Televisa and Univision.

Chessman accuses Blue Demon Jr. of coming up with silly excuses to not face him in a singles match.

Titan keeps his title, Indeseables cheat to a main event win

Titan wins/CMLL

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 Delta, Fuego, Guerrero Maya Jr. vs Skandalo, Tiger, Virus, on DailyMotion (posted by thecubsfan)
Tecnicos took 2/3.
5) Titán © b Niebla Roja [MEX WELTERTitan u00a9 vs Niebla Roja for the Mexican National Welterweight Championship, on DailyMotion (posted by thecubsfan)
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 La Mascara, La Sombra, Marco Corleone vs Felino, Negro Casas, Ripper, on DailyMotion (posted by thecubsfan)
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]

Rudos took 2/3. Zavala challenged Gallo to a title match.

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.

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.

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.
