XMW (SAT) 06/20/2015 Arena Jardines de Morelos, Ecatepec, Estado de México [Black Terry Jr. (flickr), Estrellas del Ring]
1) Chica Ye-Ye, Corsario Negro Jr., Dollar b Core, Legionario, Obscuro
Legionario & Core were added to a shuffled match.
2) Black Silver Jr., Terremoto, Tornado, Toscano b Apolo Estrada Jr., Californian Chris, Hellspawn, Orión
Mexico vs USA (??). Apolo Estrada Jr. was the mystery American and Black Silver Jr. replaced Centviron.
3) Metaleón & Mr. Leo b Arez & Impulso and Fly Star & Toxin Boy and Centviron & Fulgor II and Wasson & Yoruba
Said to be an excellent match. Arez, Impulso, Fulgor I were replaced by Emperador, Latigo, and Centviron, and Yoruba & Wasson were added. Tyson la Bestia hit the ring after the match, attacked everyone, then was attacked by everyone.
4) Skayde b Ricky Marvin, Super Crazy [XMW JUNIOR]
Match was originally Belial vs Oriental vs Ricky, but Skayde and Super Crazy were subbed in and Skayde won the title.
5) Demoledor b Pagano, Wotam, Chuey Martinez
Demoledor beat Wotam.
Keeping track of substitutions on indy shows is the dumbest thing I do, and I do a lot of dumb things.
CMLL (SAT) 06/20/2015 Arena Coliseo [CMLL, Estadio Deportes]
1) Oro Jr. b Apocalipsis
Oro Jr. replaced Molotov.
2) El Rebelde b Robin
Arkangel replaced El Rebelde, who’s worked only rarely here of late.
3) Nitro b Starman
4) Okumura COR Tritón
Triton was counted out by Terror Chino, who the CMLL.com recap berates as taking an unneccesary prominence.
5) Super Porky & Valiente b Kráneo & Ripper
6) Marcela © b Dalys [CMLL WOMEN]
Seconds were Robin and Negro Casas. Marcela took 2/3, the last with the top rope double stomp. Money thrown in. Marcela’s first defense in this reign.
7) Niebla Roja, Terrible, Vangellys b Atlantis, Diamante Azul, Rush
Rush refused to help his partners.
Okumura’s win Coliseo streak is back! It’s very clear that wasn’t the intended finish. Marcela/Dalys appears to have gone great.
DTU (SAT) 06/20/2015 Autolavado VM, Tulancingo, Hidalgo [+LuchaTV]
1) Jimmy, Kevin, Tony b Joven Maravilla, Maremoto Jr., Perro Negro Jr. and Angeluz, Angeluz Fly, Sky Blue
2) Lokillo b Kid Cometa, Artikus, Drastik Boy
3) Cíclope & Miedo Extremo b Crazy Boy & Drastik Boy and El Junior & El Nene
During the show, Black Fire announced Slayer Pack had left DTU (personal reasons) so the tag titles they held are now vacant. Their match against Chato/Junior was canceled (as with Paranoiko/Hormiga match?) and the card was completely changed around except for the last two matches.
4) Rocky Lobo b Masamune
5) Lanzeloth b Flamita and Jinzo [DTU AI, #1 Contenders]
winner faces Jonathan Gresham at some point. Said to be a very good match.
6) Rich Swann © b Septimo Dragon [FIP HEAVY]
Swann retained his title in a very good match.
The last half of that card still the same but the first half got all blown up. I wonder what happened to Ryan Kidd?
CMLL (SUN) 06/21/2015 Arena México [CMLL]
1) Bengala & Soberano Jr. b Artillero & Súper Comando
Soberano replaced Leono.
2) Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Olímpico, Pequeño Violencia b Acero, Astral, Fantasy
The Diosas del Ring did special dances before the second match and the main event.
3) Ángel de Oro, Stuka Jr., Tritón DQ Ephesto, Luciferno, Mephisto
Triton was stretchered out after a headscissors off the runway.
4) Vangellys b Máximo [lightning]
Vangellys counted Maximo with a dropkick, Maximo landed badly and severely hurt an ankle. Match was stopped and Maximo was stretched out.
5) Diamante Azul, Mistico, Volador Jr. b Kráneo, Olímpico, Ripper
Mistica on Ripper
6) Negro Casas & Shocker © b La Sombra & Naito [CMLL TAG]
Shocker & Casas 7th defense
Naito’s listed in Puebla tomorrow, though he said on Twitter (or the translation said) this was the last match. Either way, it’s the last meaningful match of his run.
Naito couldn’t win because he’s going to be otherwise occupied when the Universal tournament comes up. Maximo may also no longer be champion because he’s going to be otherwise occupied when that tournament happens – though it may be rehab for him. That last severe ankle injury took out Zeuxis for 4 months. There’s no telling if Maximo is hurt less or more, but that would put him in October. Any injury which leaves him questionable thru August means the title becoming vacant and a cibernetico to decide a new champion. It’ll probably take a couple weeks for them to figure decide if they need to do it. (Hopefully, they don’t need to and Maximo just got a scare.)
Going to save the full ChilangaMask post for tomorrow (advisory: probably no noon update Monday and Tuesday), but quick results via +LuchaTV are here. They got hit by a rainstorm halfway thru the card, bad enough to stop the show, but it sounds like they had some good matches before and after the rain. ChilangaMask already announced four matches for it’s 07/19 show: Ironia vs Hijo del Angel, Electro Boy & Saru vs Kriminal Boys, Pantera I vs Aero Boy and Caifan & Dr. Cerebro vs Trauma I, Trauma II.
Likewise, waiting for more details on DTU, but Flamita beat Rick Swann in a tonight’s main event in a very good match. There’s a fancam of their three way match with Drastick Boy in Xalapa.
SuperLuchas’ Interdimensional column asks 55 luchadors “Would you have a match with Konnan Big?” Most say no, but Erick Ortiz makes the best point on the Yes side: there’s a lot of unprofessional luchadors he’s stuck working with in Monterrey, so he might as well work with someone who actually will draw people and get him paid.
Ricochet returned to Dragon Gate today. He was introduced by CIMA as a busy guy who was only back for a month, so it doesn’t seem like something that would take him away from Lucha Underground. But – this is the bigger point – any discussion about any people coming or going for a Lucha Underground Season 2 is pretty much totally irrelevant until a Season 2 has actually been announced.
RobViper has highlights of 03/06/15 CMLL.
El Hijo del Santo pushed a story on him in Luchas 2000; I assume this is his return in London that he’s teased previously and was actually announced months ago.
Super Libre had Chik Tormenta talking about being pulled from Tuesday’s Guadalajara show (she says Mexico City people over ruled Guadalajara people.)
Rey Escorpion vowed to be Ultimo Guerrero’s nightmare, and challenged to a team versus team trios apuesta match.
