LuchaMania Monterrey, Volador/Dragon, Coliseo tag title match

LM (SAT) 07/05/2014 Gimnasio Factores Mutuos, Monterrey, Nuevo León [@bantallerMigrejok (Facebook)Paty Reyes Viera (Facebook)]
1) Titanik b Alberto Dos RiosSlayer Boy
2) Arez b Dralion
3) Tony Rodriguez b KaientaiErick OrtizKratozLow RiderAntonio Garza
14:10. Low Rider and Antonio Garza were added to the match. Tony Rodriguez and Erik Ortiz discussed a title match for the next show – which means there’s another show.
4) Charles Lucero b Black Terry
5) Dark Angel b Princesa Sugheit
6) Caifan b Rey Hechicero
33:42. Caifan asked for a shot at the Poder y Honor championship, which Hechicero agreed to.

This was the show LuchaMania Monterrey put on themselves. (Don’t expect a luchablog show this century.)  33 minutes of Caifan and Rey Hechicero sounds like it must’ve been great but the best sign was the building seemed to be pretty full and they were building to a next show – things must’ve gone OK.

3) Boby Zavala, Metálico, Misterioso Jr. b Oro Jr., Rey Cometa, Sagrado Oro Jr., Rey Cometa, Sagrado vs Boby Zavala, Metalico, Misterioso Jr., on DailyMotion (posted by thecubsfan)
Rudos took 2/3. The last fall was missed due to feed problems, but Metalico & Oro Jr. continue to feud and Metalico took Oro’s mask after the match.
4) Tritón b Skándalo [lightningTriton vs Skandalo in a lightning match [partial[, on DailyMotion (posted by thecubsfan)
Triton defeated Skandalo with the guillotine legdrop

Rudos took 1/3, Okumura & Kamaitachi beating Delta & Guerrero Maya to set up a title match next week.
6) Dragón Rojo Jr., Ephesto, Mr. Niebla b Marco Corleone, Máximo, Volador Jr. Marco Corleone, Maximo, Volador Jr. vs Dragon Rojo Jr., Ephesto, Mr. Niebla, on DailyMotion (posted by thecubsfan)
Rudos took 1/3. Dragon Rojo showed no signs of a turn, and actually beat Volador in the third with a foul. That set up a (non-title) match for next week.

Better show than previous weeks, from what we saw. Feed problems are more frustrating when there’s only one live show a week. (Also frustrating: the insane amount of plugs for CMLL Informa & Juicio Final. About a plug every single fall.) Next week is back at Arena mexico.

CMLL (SUN) 07/06/2014 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [@acogdl]
1) El Piraña b Reycko
2) El Tapatío & Meteoro b Ángel del Mal & Relampago Azul

3) Jocker & Thunder Boy b El Brillante & El Divino
Thunder Boy’s first match in mroe than a year. Rudos took 1/3.

Mask ripping; these two have been feuding. Leon won clean.
5) Titán b CachorroBlack PantherStuka Jr.GalloTerribleRey BucaneroCavernarioHechiceroMaléfico [cibernetico]
Battle royal set sides as Titán, Maléfico, Hechicero, Cavernario and Terrible vs El Gallo, Cachorro, Black Panther, Stuka and Rey Bucanero. Malefico and Stuka were out right away (foul/mask pull), followed by Cachorro (Terrible), Terrible (Black Panther), Hechicero (Black Panther), Black Panther (Cavernario), Gallo (Titan), Terrible listed again – must be Bucanero one of these times (via Cavernario), leaving teammates Titan and Cavernario. Titan beat Cavernario for the win.

Felino, Tiger, Olimpico and Veneno beat Guerrero Maya Jr., Valiente, Maximo and Heavy Metal in the main event of a show honoring Pierroth at Arena Lopez Mateos. Metal turned on his partners to join Felino and Tiger. Metal’s been working a few shows with his CMLL family, despite still being listed on the AAA site as part of their roster.

Latin Lover says that when his current stint on “Bailando por un Sueno” ends tonight, he’ll be looking for new work as an actor, a host, or even a luchador. (He’d prefer to find a non-luchador job.)

A column in Criterio Hidalgo is critical of Rush for being aggressive towards a ringside photographer, but one of the comments claim it was actually Mr. Niebla who caused the issue. Everyone, just be nicer to camera people.

The CEO of Televisa was in the crowd for Friday’s CMLL show. (He’d probably have better seats if there was something  more to that.)

Super Libre interviewed Malefico and luchadors from Arena Jalisco.

CMLL (SUN) 07/13/2014 Arena México
1) Metatrón & Soberano Jr. vs Canelo Casas & Guerrero Negro Jr.
2) Dragon Lee, Sagrado, Tritón vs Misterioso Jr., Puma, Sangre Azteca
3) Ángel de Oro, Super Porky, Titán vs Rey Bucanero, Terrible, Vangellys
4) Delta & Guerrero Maya Jr. © vs Kamaitachi & Okumura [Arena Coliseo TAG]
Delta & Maya’s second defense.
5) Marco Corleone, Máximo, Valiente vs Cavernario, Felino, Mr. Niebla
6) Volador Jr. vs Dragón Rojo Jr.

I was just noting how CMLL never ever runs non-title singles matches as main events any more, so here’s a non-title singles main event. Oh well. (I would presume this means Volador is winning, or they would’ve just set it up for Dragon Rojo to defend his title.)

That and the tag title match have chances to be good. The rest of the show has good wrestlers in unfavorable positions for matches I’d like to see.

CMLL (SUN) 07/13/2014 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) El Tapatío vs El Piraña
2) Dr. Frezzer & Marvel vs El Yaqui & Satara
3) Explosivo & William Rock vs Évola & Jocker
4) Leo, Omar Brunetti, Virgo vs Mr. Trueno, Rey Trueno, Sádico
5) Black Panther vs Hechicero
6) La Máscara & Rush vs Kráneo & Mr. Águila

Hechicero starts his secret mission to get singles matches with everyone who even tried to get into the En Busca de un Idolo tournament. Main event main have a metric ton of goofing around.




IWRG (SUN) 07/20/2014 Arena Naucalpan
1) Alfa & Omega vs Atomic Star & Electro Boy
2) Alan Extreme & Dragón Celestial vs Guerrero Mixtico & Hip Hop Man

5) LA Park vs Máscara SagradaPirata MorganDemon ClownDr. Wagner Jr.Hijo De Dos Caras [IWRG IC HEAVY, Ladder]
vacant championship; Vampiro last won the title and immediately retired.

Epic possibilities for the main event, with The Pride of The Great White North Demon Clown attempting to climb a ladder making this must seen itself. (Also, much like WWE knows, the secret benefit of a ladder match is you can include top names without needing to get any of them to job.)

Rey Horus making his debut here is exciting for other reasons (it’ll be really good!), though I’m not totally sure it’ll happen. the last time Damian 666 was mention in IWRG, he was still waiting for his plane to take off from Tijuana.

Air Date: 07/19

A show! There’s another article from Informador about some of the activities with the luchadors, but there’s not to much to say about this show.

This week’s TV stated there’s a taping on 08/06 in Teziutlan, Puebla, but AAA will run out of TV before that date. That show was pushed back a few weeks, so AAA’s likely still working on a replacement late July show and just hadn’t announced it yet by the time they finished TV but will announce it sometime in the next week. That unknown taping is the key taping, since there’s still no specific TripleMania matches for the top guys (outside of Texano/Psycho.)
