CMLL (FRI) 07/04/2014 Arena México [CMLL, MedioTiempo]
1) Hombre Bala Jr. & Súper Halcón Jr. b Cancerbero & Raziel
tecnicos take 2/3.
2) Dalys, La Seductora, Tiffany b La Vaquerita, Lluvia, Princesa Sugehit
Straight falls. Tecnicas were DQed in the first for striking the referee, then Seductora pulled Sugehit’s mask and pinned her in the second.
3) Máximo, Rey Cometa, Super Porky b Rey Bucanero, Tiger, Vangellys
Tecnicos took 1/3.
4) Terrible b Blue Panther [lightning]
Blue Panther replaced Diamante Auzl on Tuesday. Terible pulled out the win.
5) Gran Guerrero, Niebla Roja, Último Guerrero b Atlantis, Titán, Valiente
Rudos took 2/3, UG using a Gran Guerrero distraction to get the win. UG again demanded a date for the mask match with Atlantis.
6) La Máscara, La Sombra, Rush b Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas, Shocker
Two falls. Shocker was going to beat Sombra, but Rush fouled Shocker and turned over the pin.
Earlier, Apolo Valdez said the Juicio Final card would be revealed on Wednesday. I have no idea what be, which suggests they haven’t done the greatest job of building to something. They’ve got a lot of feuds but haven’t really narrowed on one. The women’s match here suggested that Seductora/Sugehit in a singles mask match (but definitely not a main event) is possible, but Marcela and Blanca return next week.
AAA tapes tonight at Hard Rock Hotel Vallarta. This is part of a weekend vacation package, so figure a show more about making the people spending money to go to a resort happy than advancing storylines (though it’s airing close enough to TripleMania that they may be need to set up something.) Main event is Myzteziz and Cibernetico versus Averno and Chessman. It’s only a four match card, starting at an earlier than usual tie of 6pm (or thereabouts.)
The weekend of events kicked off last night with red carpet entrances by the luchadors and mingling with the fans. An AAA official says the plan is to come back here around this date every year and notes the October Hard Rock show is in Cancun. Interestingly, that AAA official is Bernardo Guzman of Tercera Caida fame. He’s listed as director of programming content. Bernardo disappeared from the CMLL Puebla broadcasts in April, which I assumed was some TVC Deportes cut back – I guess it probably still was in a way.,
El Apache is quoted on an Xalapa site as saying there’s a possibility of CMLL and AAA working together. I do not put much stock in that – it reads like the interviewer asks if it could happen and Apache told him what he wanted to hear.
Rob has highlights of 11/03/13 AAA in Tonala.
The 07/25 Mil Mascaras appearance in Guadalajara will also include Canek, Dos Caras, Sicodelico and others.
Myzteziz vs Averno in a singles match, their first one since Mistico’s final match in CMLL, is being advertised for 07/17 in Coatepec, Veracruz. It may be someone just misreading the lineup and those two guys are part of a trios instead.

CMLL (FRI) 07/11/2014 Arena México
1) Bam Bam & Eléctrico vs Demus 3:16 & Pierrothito
2) Hombre Bala Jr., Starman, Stigma vs Kamaitachi, Okumura, Skándalo
3) Dark Angel, Estrellita, Marcela vs Amapola, Princesa Blanca, Zeuxis
4) Ángel de Oro, Stuka Jr., Super Porky vs Ephesto, Hechicero, Pólvora
5) Marco Corleone, Máximo, Rush vs Cavernario, Negro Casas, Último Guerrero
6) La Sombra vs Shocker
Sombra and Shocker is a rematch from a recent Puebla show. Bufete del Amor team up once again, with Cavernario getting a semimain. The two feuding women who weren’t on last night’s show are on next week’s. That should be a good match. Minis match looks good as well
