LM (SAT) 07/05/2014 Gimnasio Factores Mutuos, Monterrey, Nuevo León [@bantaller, Migrejok (Facebook), Paty Reyes Viera (Facebook)]
1) Titanik b Alberto Dos Rios, Slayer Boy
2) Arez b Dralion
3) Tony Rodriguez b Kaientai, Erick Ortiz, Kratoz, Low Rider, Antonio 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.
CMLL (SUN) 07/06/2014 Arena Coliseo
1) Molotov & Star Jr. b Akuma & Cholo
Tecnicos took 2/3.
2) Demus 3:16, Pequeño Olímpico, Pierrothito b Astral, Fantasy, Stukita
Rudos took 1/3, Demus dropping Fantasy on his head with the Demus Driver for the deciding pin.
3) Boby Zavala, Metálico, Misterioso Jr. b Oro Jr., Rey Cometa, Sagrado
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 [lightning]
Triton defeated Skandalo with the guillotine legdrop
5) Euforia, Kamaitachi, Okumura b Atlantis, Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr.
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.
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
Tecnicos took 1/3.
3) Jocker & Thunder Boy b El Brillante & El Divino
Thunder Boy’s first match in mroe than a year. Rudos took 1/3.
4) León Blanco b Espectrum
Mask ripping; these two have been feuding. Leon won clean.
5) Titán b Cachorro, Black Panther, Stuka Jr., Gallo, Terrible, Rey Bucanero, Cavernario, Hechicero, Maléfico [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.)

Tinieblas’ FULL promotion is part of an literacy campaign.
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
3) Emperador Azteca, Imposible, Metaleon vs Apolo Estrada Jr., Avisman, El Hijo del Diablo
4) Golden Magic, Relámpago, Rey Horus vs Bestia 666, Damián 666, Eterno
5) LA Park vs Máscara Sagrada, Pirata Morgan, Demon Clown, Dr. 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.
