Mistico separates shoulder and wins anyway, next show for The Crash

CMLL (MON) 04/13/2015 Arena Puebla [El Popular, Periodico Enfoque]
1) Arkalis & Tigre Rojo Jr. b El Malayo & Guerrero Espacial
2) Astral, Astro, Eléctrico b Espíritu Maligno, Pierrothito, Saurón
Espiritu Maligno was hurt on a Astral move in the second fall and left the match.

4) Kráneo, Rey Escorpión, Ripper b Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr., Máximo

Tecnicos took 1/3. Mistico separated his left shoulder during the match, but got it popped back in and ended up winning.

Mistico continues to have bad injury luck in this arena, but it sounds as though it wasn’t severe this time.

In a correction from yesterday, Arena Coliseo Guadalajara are not moving back to Sunday shows. Their secondary show will remain on Friday. Just appears to be a misunderstanding.

PWInsider reports Dark Angel is a guest trainer at WWE’s NXT facility this week. (Nonpopup source here.) WWE routinely brings in various current and former wrestlers as week long guest trainers. Occasionally, if the trainers click over many visits and if the trainer is interested, they may be brought in full time.

Dragon Rojo Jr., finally not falsely advertised as wrestling this week, says he’s coming back next week.

Today’s CMLL Arena Mexico show has Atlantis, La Mascara, and Dragon Lee versus Terrible, Rey Bucanero and Kamaitachi, with CMLL talking about this possibly setting up a Kamaitachi/Dragon Lee title match. The Panthers and Comando Boricuas are back at each other, and the lightning match is Virus vs Fuego. Guadalajara has Sky Team vs Guerreros, which may also set up a title match, though both may be a couple weeks off yet to put them close to Kid’s Day.

Black Terry Jr. has highlights of ChilangaMask matches: Negro Navarro vs Dragon Lee, Psycho Kid vs Black Terry and Arez & Belial vs Iron Kid & Aramis.

+LuchaTV has Hijo de Dos Caras and Negro Navarro talking about their title match, and Navarro on his sons versus the Ingobernables.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update, this week’s PosterMania, and reports on the LA Triton’s benefit show and Misterisoso & Stuka in El Paso.

SuperLuchas looks back at a super international card from 35 years ago.

A charity show on 05/09 in Arena Lopez Mateos will be headlined by the Traumas vs Oficial AK47 & Oficial 911 vs Eterno & Canis Lupus vs Rey Hechicero & Oro Jr.

Highlights of Discovery & Psicosis’ bloody match in Cicero, Illinois.

San Luis Potosi’s Oro Azul suffered a neck injury and will be out two weeks.

WWL, thrilled with all the attention it got for shutting down, announced it was coming back.

No teams announced for the main evnet. Cruz is winning, that seems like a safe bet. Figuring out the loser is tougher.
