CMLL (FRI) 05/29/2015 Arena México [Yahoo! Deportes]
1) Leono & Soberano Jr. b Espanto Jr. & Inquisidor
2) Astral, Eléctrico, Shockercito DQ Demus 3:16, Mercurio, Pequeño Violencia
Demus fouled Shockercito
3) Misterioso Jr. b Fuego [lightning]
Misterioso won with a Gori Special in about 5:30
4) Ángel de Oro, Guerrero Maya Jr., Stuka Jr. b Boby Zavala, Puma, Tiger
Puma suffered a shoulder injury on a stacked ups supelplex spot.
5) Dragón Rojo Jr., Pólvora, Rey Escorpión DQ Gran Guerrero, Negro Casas, Niebla Roja
Revolucionarios unmasked Gran Guerrero, forcing him to return to the locker room for a new mask and allowing them to destroy the other two. Gran Guerrero ran back out with a new mask, and submitted Rey Escorpion to Pulpo Guerrero – only to unmask as Ultimo Guerrero! Referee DQed the Guerreros.
6) La Sombra, Naito, Rush b Euforia, Thunder, Último Guerrero
Thunder and Ultimo Guerrero had problems, allowing the Ingobernables to take advantage for the win. UG challenged Rush to a hair vs hair match.
They did a very small tease of a problem between Thunder & Ultimo Guerrero back in the same incredible partners matches which turned Dragon Rojo. The clips here look very unsubtle, with Thunder going as far as stealing a pin. Ultimo Guerrero also being involved in the semimain suggests maybe some faction vs faction vs faction cage match, if that’s indeed still the plan.
Terra broadcasted the first three matches, possibly as a trial run for what they’ll be doing with En Busca de un Idolo. Feed didn’t start on time and was completely unwatchable for the opener, then got slightly better for the following two matches. Getting to watch live on Terra is nice, but it still makes a lot of sense to put the En Busca de un Idolo matches on YouTube after they take place.
AAA has it’s first normal TV taping in about a month today in Reynosa. Main event is Patron & Parka vs Cibernetico & Mesias. This taping and the Monday one are probably designed to shift focus to Verano de Escandalo; the card’s been announced but the attention has been elsewhere.
AAA’s TV show today is moved back to 6:15 pm today. The Lucha World Cup will air Sunday at Canal 5 in Mexico as well. It’s a two hour show, so they’ll probably air only some of the show.
CaraLucha has it’s first Anniversary show in about an hour, with Volador & Titan facing the indy team of Bestia 666 & Flamita. Rush vs Hechicero is the semimain on a loaded show. Hechicero suggests he’s going to out smart the headstrong Rush, which seems like a decent strategy.
ChilangaMask is in Toluca with locals Gemlos Fantasticos taking on the Traumas. Fulgor I defends the Estadio de Mexico welteright championship against Psycko Kid & former champ Astro Rey.
There is no CMLL Coliseo show tonight. AULL has a show featuring Mexico based international wrestlers, which obviously seems inspired by the World Cup.
CMLL.com launched their new website today, a couple days early. It’s not a huge interface departure from what was done before, but it’s easier to use and probably easier to manage now that they’re on WordPress. Site’s probably a lot better on mobile too. The news page is now a blog – they’ve got the preview for Sunday’s Casas/Volador title match up now. They also have more detailed information on their training sessions than they’ve posted in the past. The one bit I’m not a fan of is the new results page: you’re required to hit a plus to see each match and can’t see the results of the whole card at once. They made the switch over last night, and last night’s results aren’t up yet. The Friday video clips that used to be decently hidden on the old site are not being posted to YouTube.
The best part of the new site is an interactive display of the Arena Mexico mural, with a short video on how it came to be.
Dylan Zero has a great preview of this year’s En Busca de un Idolo, especially if you’re a person who doesn’t normally follow these things.
R de Rudo has an interview with luchadora Quimera, who’s appeared on FULL TV as of late.
RobViper has highlights of 02/03/15 CMLL

Black Terry trainees vs Eterno trainees
I want to see what Eterno trainees look like. I don’t think of Eterno as old enough to have trainees, but he has been around for a quite a while.
CMLL (FRI) 06/05/2015 Arena México
1) Magnus & Starman vs Hijo del Signo & Metálico
2) Blue Panther Jr., Pegasso, The Panther vs Disturbio, Okumura, Sangre Azteca
3) Dark Angel, Goya Kong, Princesa Sugehit vs Amapola, Dalys, Tiffany
4) Delta vs Boby Zavala [En Busca de un Idolo]

6) Euforia, Thunder, Último Guerrero vs Dragón Rojo Jr., Pólvora, Rey Escorpión
7) Dragon Lee, Valiente, Volador Jr. vs Rey Bucanero, Shocker, Terrible
Dragon Lee in a Friday main event, in Mistico’s normal spot, seems like a big deal. Ultimo Guerrero actually faces the Revolucionarios in a match. Dark Angel apparently still works here.
Fourth and fifth are the first En Busca de un Idolo matches, and probably those first five matches will all air.
