4) Felino b Stuka Jr. [lightning]

5) La Sombra, Niebla Roja, Último Guerrero b Dragón Rojo Jr., Rey Escorpión, Thunder [Relevos Increíbles]
UG won by getting a foul on Rey Escorpion.
6) Mistico, Valiente, Volador Jr. DQ Ephesto, Luciferno, Mephisto
rudos were DQed for a foul and a mask pull, but felt they were in line for a trios title match. The tecnicos ignored them.
Main event is setting up for a title match. Semimain (and UG & Rey Escorpion’s new friendship) doesn’t seem to have gone anywhere for the moment.
There’s a facebook post with Lucha World Cup info, but they don’t source anything and they seem to have facts wrong. I don’t trust the info – they might be right, but it feels off. They have LA Park as the third member of the non-AAA Mexico team (which seems unlikely but not impossible.) They have a Lucha Underground team of Puma, Mundo and Jack Evans, where one hasn’t been announced. And they don’t have the Rest of The World Team or the Mexico 2 team. I’m skeptical.
While mentioning weird fake stuff, there was a fake Chilanga Mask poster with a Rush vs Alberto match floating around. That’s not happening and wasn’t ever advertised by the promotion.
A real Chilanga Mask show is this Sunday in Coacalco. Aeroboy says he’s ready for his match with Solar, the biggest match on the show. Others include the Indystrongibles facing each other in a triangle match and a exotico/turtle ninja vs exotico/turtle ninja tag.
AAA’s bumped to 7:15 pm CT today. They start the Xalapa taping, with Australian Suicide & Dinastia vs Super Fly & Hijo del Pirata Morgan, Fenix vs Fantasma, and Alberto, Myzteziz and Murder Clown vs Mesias, Texano Jr., and Pentagon Jr.
LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update from Thursday.
SuperLuchas looks back at the big 14th Arena Mexico anniversary show, with a Ray Mendoza title win and a double hair match.
CMLL (FRI) 05/01/2015 Arena México
1) Stukita & Último Dragoncito vs Mercurio & Pequeño Olímpico
2) Blue Panther Jr., Pegasso, The Panther vs Boby Zavala, Pierroth, Sagrado
3) Marco Corleone, Máximo, Rush vs Euforia, Thunder, Último Guerrero
4) La Sombra vs Ángel de Oro, Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr., Dragon Lee, Stuka Jr., Tritón, Fuego, Niebla Roja, Gran Guerrero, Bárbaro Cavernario, Kamaitachi, Misterioso Jr., Virus, Tiger, Puma [Reyes del Aire]
5) Mistico, Valiente, Volador Jr. vs Ephesto, Luciferno, Mephisto
Another Kid’s Day themed show, with the Sky Team in the main event and a bunch of highspots in the semimain. Puma handles the video promo.
Rush! He’s back! He’s in a match with Thunder all over again.
Stuka Jr. won last year’s Reyes del Aire. I don’t like his change to repeat. No Titan is sad. Sombra, Dragon Lee, Cavernario and Kamiatachi seem like the best contenders, though I guess Angel de Oro still exists and could sadly win again. A fun subplot of the random Tuesday night teamings of Sombra & Dragon Lee is Dragon Lee is so focused on winning and craziness that he doesn’t seem to know that Sombra is evil. He may find that out here.
Setting the superkick under/over at 8.

Main event is built off Ultimo Dragon beating Tiger Ali in last year’s tournament, as I’m sure you all remember.
Skandalo hasn’t been seen in CMLL since his knee injury. Working this show would suggest that Skandalo is healthy but CMLL has opted to stop booking a early match wrestler with family connections. That doesn’t sound like CMLL, so I guess he’s not actually healthy yet.
This is the day before the Lucha World Cup. So many random Japanese wrestlers in one weekend.
