I’m jealous this show happened this weekend instead of next. Reviews of the show were strong. I think, outside of the missing 3 people in the rumble (which may just have been omitted; Apolo says there was 20), everyone on the ChilangaMask/Lucha Meme card actually made the show. Things don’t work out that well for them that often.
My hunch is Herodes’ problem in CMLL was less with the matches itself, but a “only so many hours in a day” conflict between training for CMLL and whatever else he has going on and CMLL had to go but we’ll continue to see him on indy shows like this for the time being. (In other words, it’s more a problem of working in CMLL as an undercard guy not being a living wage alone .) This is your opening to fantasy book his inevitable IWRG feud.
CMLL (SUN) 09/07/2014 Arena Coliseo
1) Magnus & Soberano Jr. b Apocalipsis & Inquisidor
Tecnicos took 2/3.
2) Cancerbero, Nitro, Raziel b Black Panther, Sensei, Starman
Rudos – who don’t seem to have problems with each other any more, took falls 1/3.
3) Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr., Tritón DQ Okumura, Skándalo, Virus
straight falls, Virus yanking Delta’s mask for the DQ in the second after Delta had beat him in the first with a reinera.
4) Astral b Pequeño Olímpico © [CMLL MINI]
Astral took falls one and three to win the championship. He’s the 13th champion. Pequeno Olimpico’s falls on his fifth title defense, his three and a half year reign ending.
5) Kráneo, Pólvora, Shocker b Blue Panther, Super Porky, Titán
Rudos took 2/3.
6) Ephesto, Euforia, Mephisto b Diamante Azul, Máscara Dorada, Valiente
Rudos took 1/3, Azul and Euforia continuing to feud and Euforia submitting Azul in the end. Euforia challenged Azul to a title match next week (in Arena Mexico.)
Didn’t see the show; think we’re in a month stretch where I’m not going to see the show on Terra, though I might catch it live once. Most of the recent shows have been missible – there hasn’t been a lot of good match making and the Azul/Euforia match isn’t going to change that.
Astral had a lot of family/friends there. I guess they had a good feeling and/or though they could push him over the top if they all came.
CMLL (SUN) 09/07/2014 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [@acogdl]
1) Índigo b Furia Nazi
2) Acertijo b El Divino
3) Brillante & Virgo DQ Demonio Maya & Demonio Rojo
Tecnicos took 1/3, the last when Maya fouled Brillante.
4) Mr. Águila & Sádico b Omar Brunetti & Smaker
Rudos took 1/3. Aguila cheated to beat Omar.
5) Maléfico b Exterminador [hair]
Malefico took 2/3 to win the hair match over his ex-ally.
6) Cavernario & Terrible b Dragón Rojo Jr. & Gallo and Ángel de Oro & Stuka Jr. and Pierroth & Sagrado
Gallo & Dragon Rojo were out first via foul (unclear by who), then Pierroth got DQed for unmasking Angel de Oro. Cavernario & Terrible beat Oro & Stuka clean for the win.
Show was heavy with FRAM sponsorship. I wonder if they’ve convinced Agulia to lose to Omar in the end.
