Kaving replaced Rey de Oros

Star Fire heads to Japan still champion.
3) Donatelo, Leonardo, Miguel Angel, Rafael b Leo (IWRG), Mike, Rafy, Teelo
in the Ninja (IWRG) vs Karateka (AULL) battle, Rafy and Rafael ended up switching masks. Leo, Mike and Teelo were confused enough to attack Rafy, giving the AULL team the win. The IWRG turtles demanded a rematch.
4) Epitafio, Leviatham, Samael, Tormento b Gallego, Judas el Traidor, Rocky Santana, Romano Garcia
Judas el Traidor replaced Cosmonauta, was attacked by his partners for the loss.
5) Hijo De Dos Caras & Hijo del Dr. Wagner Jr. © b Aeroboy & Violento Jack [UWE TAG]
Hijo del Dr. Wagner Jr. suffered a severe arm injury in the third fall: he clotheslined Violento Jack with his right arm, fell to his knees delivering it, put his left arm down to brace himself and dislocated his elbow on impact with the mat. Match was quickly stopped and stayed that way until Hijo del Dr. Wagner Jr. could be walked to the back. Dos won anyway, but offered Aero & Violento a TLC match for the tag titles at some future date.
6) Dr. Wagner Jr. & Pirata Morgan b LA Park & Negro Navarro
Park pulled Wagner’s mask, Wagner beat him anyway.
Strong turnout for this building, especially mid week. This week is a holiday vacation week for many Mexicans, which is why this took place on a Wednesday and probably why AAA’s running TV tapings this week.
Hijo del Dr. Wagner Jr.’s injury got some extra attention since it was the first graphic injury caught on video since Perro Aguayo Jr.’s death. Everyone did seem much quicker than usual to take him out of the match, but there was no way to mistake it for selling because of the freak way it happened. Dr. Wagner Jr. said his son is doing OK. Wagner also says he’s being wrongly billed on the 04/30 DTU branded show.
All Elite (Ernesto Santillian listed as president + Karlo Colin) and Arena Coliseo Guadalajara’s Daniel Cruz held a press conference to talk about the 03/19 All Elite show in that building. No more matches announeced than the two which have already been said – Rush vs Dr. Wagner Jr. and Negro Casas & Octagon vs Blue Panther & Fuerza Guerrera – but Volador Jr., LA Park, Gallo and Esfinge were all announced as appearing on the six match show. The last two are part of a locals focued tournaments. The full card will be announced next week. The other announced All Elite shows are 05/03 in Monterrey and TBD in Queretaro.
CMLL Informa was mostly hyping this Saturday’s 72nd Arena Coliseo Anniversary show. Mistico/Ripper isn’t really much of a main event, but CMLL’s fans tend to get sucked in by annual events and it should be the biggest crowd since CMLL started this concept. This week was more Sabado Retros focused than usual for those reasons, but it’s very strange to see how much CMLL focuses on the smallest show it runs a week. (They don’t go match by match on Friday’s show on Informa.) The show itself had a good interview with Tony Salazar about CMLL’s training program, which probably not enough is written about given it’s importance.
+LuchaTV has interviews with the Traumas & Eterno as a group and the Ingobernables, plus clips of their match.
ChilangaMask added Iron Kid & Aramis vs Arez & Belial to it’s 04/12 show, and says The Ninjas & Rico Rodriguez are off their upcoming shows.
CMLL has part 2 and part 3 of it’s Arena Coliseo history piece, which appears to be a repeat from the round number anniversary a couple years ago.
Crazy Boy will be teaching a seminar today in Veracruz.
Cavernario, Astral and Pierroth are listed as wrestling in Washington DC on 05/02. The fourth luchador has Mr. Aguila’s bio, but Mr. Aguila is not the man pictured or named, so there may be something funny going on here (or maybe just confusion.)
Missed this last week: Puerto Rico’s WWL shut down on March 23rd. They had a relationship with AAA at one point and was bringing in Laredo Kid and the Caras/Mascaras family most recently.
