Debut for Hijo del Calavera, who took the loss to Exterminador.
5) Omar Brunetti, Pepe Aguayo, Virgo DQ Demonio Maya, Jocker, Maléfico
Tecnicos took 2/3, the last when Great Eku, Sadico, Evola and Exterminador attacked the tecnicos. Leo and Xavier Cruz made the save.

Main event seems to be setting up a multiman cage match, the last refuge of lucha programmers out of ideas.

1) Último Dragoncito b Pequeño Nitro
Ultimo Dragoncito replaced Angelito, did not get knocked out this time.

5) Tiger b Tritón
6) Dark Angel & Estrellita b Amapola & La Seductora

A show.

CMLL (SUN) 03/15/2015 Arena México
1) Magnus & Molotov b Akuma & Espiritu Negro
2) Astral, Eléctrico, Shockercito b Demus 3:16, Pequeño Olímpico, Pequeño Universo 2000

6) La Máscara, Mistico, Volador Jr. DQ Bárbaro Cavernario, Negro Casas, Shocker
Negro Casas fouled Mistico. Mascara did not get along with his partners.

Also a show! They haven’t posted a recap – Alexis Salazar is on vacation and I’m surprised CMLL hasn’t completely fallen apart without him – so maybe there’s some angle that wasn’t reflected on Twitter.

other Rey de Reyes notes

Nothing new about the delay.

The Rey de Reyes poster mentions “2 luchas mas”, but AAA’s never said what those mas matches would be. I had assume they were local dark matches, but there definitely were enough AAA luchadors there and without a match to fill out two matches:

  • Ludxor & Venum vs Carta Brava & Apache
  • Pimpinela, Mascarita Sagrada, Faby Apache vs Mamba, Mini Abismo Negro, and Taya

Joe Lider was also present. He could fit in with one of those other matches or get involved some other way. 6pm (8pm US Eastern) is still the scheduled start time but, if you’re interested but not going to be around until a little bit later, there’s still a good chance you’ll see the entire announced card.

Perro Aguayo Jr. and Rey Mysterio Jr. showed up late to the in-ring announcement for dramatics and Brian Cage lingered near the back, but they were all there by the end. Everyone on the card appeared in the ring except for Alberto El Patron. If he was healthy, it would’ve made sense for him to walk out and look healthy. If he’s got a leg injury that’s going to be hard to hide while walking, that may be why he didn’t do much walking. It’s a little bit shady.

Stream looked great. It’s going to be in a different building tomorrow, so who knows, but they had it going thru a bad rainstorm so it seems like a good sign. 3D even worked when I tried it briefly (though it didn’t add much to the crowd shots.)

2015 Rey de Reyes postponed due to rain

Tonight’s Rey de Reyes was washed out. Guadalajara got hit with a rain storm this afternoon, one which was to pick up in intensity right around the start of the show and go into the night. The iPPV stream came on the air about a half hour before the show, and showed pools of water on the tarp covering the ring. It was a thin, late arriving crowd as the show approached bell time.

At 6pm local, the announced start time, AAA luchadors and Joaquin Roldan came to the ring together. Most everyone was in street clothes, which tipped off the show not starting as scheduled. Joaquin officially announced the show would not be run that night – citing safety issues with the rain and the electrical equipment – and instead would take place tomorrow in Auditorio Benito Juarez in nearby Zapopan. All tickets for this show will be honored tomorrow, and all people who bought the iPPV will also be able to see it tomorrow.

Rey Misterio Jr. spoke to the crowd, thanking them for coming out and encouraging them to come to the show on Monday. The show will start at the same time on Monday, 6pm local, 8 pm US ET.

EDIT: The show will be at Auditorio Benito Juarez, an indoor arena. Forget the rain.
