CMLL (SUN) 06/14/2015 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [CMLL, Fuego en el Ring]
1) Mercenario & Mr. Brisa b Capitan Cobra & Mr. Apolo
2) Nube Roja & Toro Negro b El Chakal & Évola
3) Metatrón & Reycko b Joker & Sádico
4) Pepe Aguayo, Pitbull I, Pitbull II DQ Exterminador, Flash I, Maléfico [Relevos Increíbles]
Pepe worked as a rudo. Extreamindor was caught fouling Pepe for the DQ.
5) Espectrum L Esfinge, Sansón, Gallo, Ráfaga, Forastero, Rey Trueno, Magnum, Flash II, Infierno, El Cuatrero, Virgo [cage, mask, hair]
Luchadors must have stayed in for 5 minutes before escaping. Match came down to Gallo, Espectrum and Esfinge. Gallo escaped, and Esfinge beat Espectrum with a bridging cradle for the win. Espectrum was unmasked as Gerardo Alférez Robledo, 32 years old, 8 years a wrestler.

Espectrum just turned back up three weeks ago, so not a big surprise he was unmasked. CMLL’s talked about putting up matches from Guadalajara on YouTube. It’ll be interesting if they put up Esfinge’s big win and if it has any affect on his En Busca de un Idolo standing.

CMLL (MON) 06/15/2015 Arena Puebla [CMLL, El Popular]
1) Astral, Astro, Principe Diamante b Ares, Demus 3:16, Mini Joker
Principe Diamante’s CMLL debut here – he’s appeared on All Elite shows previously.
2) Lestat, Pegasso, Starman b Disturbio, King Jaguar, Policeman
Lestat beat Disturbio.
3) Misterioso Jr., Pierroth, Sagrado b Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr., Stigma
Stigma was hurt in the third fall.
4) La Máscara, La Sombra, Rush DQ Euforia, Gran Guerrero, Último Guerrero
Sombra fouled Gran Guerrero.
5) Mistico, Valiente, Volador Jr. © b Dragón Rojo Jr., Pólvora, Rey Escorpión [CMLL TRIOS]
Tecnicos took 1/3. Rey Escorpion dropped Mistico with his package piledriver in the second, and Mistico was taken to the locker room, but heroically returned in the third fall to give his team the win. Sky Team’s second defense.

Kamaitachi is off this week’s shows, removed from tonight’s show (Hechicero replaces) and Sunday (Okumura.) Naito’s blog mentions Kamaitachi didn’t work out Monday after returning from losing the Oaxaca title match and seemed to be depressed, then later told Naito he’d been working thru an injury for two months. Naito mentions the injury, but the translation is totally unclear. Naito was surprised Kamaitachi had been working thru it for long. Kamaitachi later told Naito that he was fine, but it sure looks like someone thought otherwise.

A newspaper recap of the Dragon Lee/Kamaitachi match mentions Kamaitachi left on a stretcher, but it would otherwise read as a guy selling a piledriver at the end of the match.

Today’s new CMLL main event is Mistico, Dragon Lee and Titan versus Ripper, Polvora and Hechicero, with the recap pushing Mistico/Ripper and Lee/Hechicero matchups. The En Busca de un Idolo matches are Canelo Casas vs Delta and Guerrero Maya vs Boby Zavala. Zavala & Maya are the two best luchadors in the match and the two most likely to get thru the second round. This could be the first of three times they face off in this competition.

Disturbio, talking En Busca de un Idolo, says he’s not scared of anyone. He notes he came into CMLL the same time as Delta & Maya but has not gotten the same opportunities.

Averno says the Psycho Circus have to go to the back of the line of challengers, while Chessman says there are no worthy challengers for his Latin American title.

+LuchaTV has Septimo Dragon talking about his FIP title match, Volador and Flamita talking about their latest match, and Pagano and Nicho talking about their upcoming hair match.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update and this week’s Poster-Mania.

Angelico & Jack Evans will wrestle at PWG’s Treemendous IV on July 24th. That would make it unlikely TripleMania is that weekend.

AAA’s put up this week’s TV show, which includes the opener which didn’t air on Televisa. AAA hinted at announcing TripleMania information this week; if it’s going to be part of this upcoming week’s TV, we’ll probably hear about it tomorrow.

CMLL (SAT) 06/20/2015 Arena Coliseo
1) Molotov vs Apocalipsis
2) Robin vs El Rebelde
3) Starman vs Nitro
4) Tritón vs Okumura
5) Super Porky & Valiente vs Kráneo & Ripper
6) Marcela © vs Dalys [CMLL WOMEN]
Marcela’s first defense in this reign.
7) Atlantis, Diamante Azul, Rush vs Niebla Roja, Terrible, Vangellys

Diamante Azul back last Friady as the anti-Ingobernable, teaming with Rush this Saturday.

Marcela losing the title would be Terrible.

The version of this card listed on Terra says there’s five singles matches with one more to be added. is sure it’s four matches. Eh.

Robin sure works a lot of Saturdays.

IWRG (SUN) 06/21/2015 Arena Naucalpan
1) Hijo del Alebrije & Kanon vs Atomic Star & Enigma
2) Metaleón, Mr. Leo, Vortize vs Araña de Plata, Electro Boy, Hip Hop Man
3) Danny Casas, Dragón Celestial, Golden Magic vs Cerebro Negro, Dr. Cerebro, Imposible
4) Masamune, Pantera, Súper Nova vs Eterno, Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Universo 2000 Jr.
5) Veneno © vs Heddi Karaoui [IWRG IC MIDDLE]
first defense

Heddi Karoui always seems to do well and seems to keep a connection with them even when he’s wrestling elsewhere. He seems like a slight favorite.

There’s a dozen different people currently using Enigma, not even including Nygma. It’s not a great name to use.

CMLL (MON) 06/22/2015 Arena Puebla
1) Arkalis, Lestat, Rey Samuray vs King Jaguar, Rey Apocalipsis, Toro Bill Jr.
2) Goya Kong, Lluvia, Marcela vs Dalys, Tiffany, Zeuxis
3) Dragon Lee, Fuego, Tritón vs Kamaitachi, Okumura, Virus
4) Atlantis, Delta, Naito vs Kráneo, Morphosis, Ripper
5) La Máscara, La Sombra, Rush vs Euforia, Gran Guerrero, Último Guerrero

Main event is a rematch. Kamaitachi listed as back here, but that could’ve just not been updated.
