IWRG (SUN) 07/26/2015 Arena Naucalpan [+LuchaTV, Black Terry Jr. (Flickr), Mano a Mano]
1) Aeroman b Araña de Plata, Hip Hop Man
No Alas de Acero, so they did a three way instead.
2) Dragón Celestial & Metaleón b Enigma & Imposible
very good match
3) Apolo Estrada Jr., Avisman, El Hijo del Diablo b Emperador Azteca, Golden Magic, Súper Nova
good match with Avisman & Super Nova looking good against each other. Super Nova and Golden Magic fought each other after the match, with Magic demanding a Junior de Juniors title chance.
4) Hijo del Solar, Máscara Sagrada, Solar I b Halloween Jr., Hijo de Máscara Año 2000, Universo 2000 Jr.
Tecnicos took 1/3.
5) Negro Navarro, Trauma I, Trauma II DQ Canis Lupus, Coloso Chris, Príncipe Orión
Coloso Chris faked a foul in the second, Trauma I faked a foul in the third.

AYM turned up late for the show, so definitely the first match won’t air. Third match sounds pretty good.

Marcela beat Keira in the main event of HUMO’s Salon Citali show, with money thrown in. Lady Maravilla defeated Big Mama for that group’s women title with help from Chica Yeye.

Alberto’s rant on Myzteziz got noticed by Record, which means it’s not just an internet thing but a topic everyone in AAA is going to be asked about next time they’re in front of the media. The discusion probably won’t wait until TripleMania; there’s surely a press conference for the show that both men will be at, and they’ll both get to be asked about this. Sounds like fun. A clip of an Alberto interview may remind you of all the reasons he disliked Myzteziz in the past; this could be a new reason but the feelings are not new.

Tonight’s Arena Puebla show will have Euforia challenging Maximo for the Heavyweight championship. Maximo should remain champion. The show, which doesn’t look quite as good as last week’s Anniversary show, will air live again on and YouTube. CMLL never uploaded last week’s show but says they will at some point; my guess is it’s going to have to wait until it airs on TV (which means at least a two week delay.)

There’s a CMLL video report on last week’s Puebla show, with some backstage interviews.

Sombra is still technically listed as wrestling tonight in Arena Puebla, but he’s probably going to be replaced. He has for tomorrow’s Arena Mexico show, with Titan taking his place. That show also has an added match – the Panther, Pegasso & Leono vs Raziel, Metalico, and Cancerbero – so it seems like that hair match feud is back on. The opener has also been changed, with Stukita replaced by Angelito and Pequeno Nitro replacing Olimpico.

I think this needs repeating, because I’ve seen it confused in other places: Sombra & Rush are suspended for 90 days only in Jalisco, and that mostly means Arena Coliseo Guadalajara. They’re secretly suspended from all CMLL matches for an indefinite time; no one’s said they’re suspended so we don’t know a time limit. Rush appeared to be secretly suspended from CMLL for three weeks earlier this year, so maybe that’s a good guess here, but there’s no telling for sure. (Three weeks would be 08/11 in this case.) It could be different lengths because Rush is a repeat offender, it could be shorter because they were provoked. It’s probably not 90 days every where; Niebla was secretly suspended many times before he got up to 90 days. At this point, all we know is they’re off until they’re not.

Universal has a story about Sony developing a TV show about the fictionalized history of a luchador; it’d use the name of a real life luchador who started in movies, though it sounds like the plots would be actual fiction. Given the hints, it appears to be a Blue Demon show. (Hijo del Santo would never give away the rights for something like this, so it has to be.) No air date or channel is known, and it doesn’t sound like it’s that far along.

RobViper has a highlight video of March 24 CMLL.

Super Libre had Black Terry on the guest, and talked about the Sombra/Rush/fan fight incident.

Segunda Caida reviews Volador versus Ultimo Guerrero.

Lucha Libre in Japan

07/24 NOAH:
Super Crazy b Genba Hirayanagi [GJHL] – Crazy 3-0!
Bengala b Taiji Ishimori [GJHL] – Bengala 2-1

07/25 NOAH:
Super Crazy b Taiji Ishimori [GJHL] – Crazy 3-1

Neither man had a tournament match on 07/26, though Bengala did win the opener. Crazy leads the block with three wins with two matches left, and Bengala is part of a group of people with two wins with three matches left.


IWRG FILL (WED) 07/29/2015 Arena Naucalpan
1) Blue Metal, Canario, Vaderus vs Demonio Imperial, Sexy Girl, Skanda
2) Charly Boy, Guerrero 2000, Magnum 44 vs Chicanito, Vampiro Metálico, Voltar
3) Adrenalina, Centella Oriental, Hijo Del Alebrije vs Estrella Oriental, Matrix Jr., Pluma Negra
4) Acero, Aeroman, Black Drago vs Power Bull, Rey Terco Jr., Royer Boy
5) Alas de Acero, Aramis, Araña de Plata, Atomic Star, Chapuloin, Electro Boy, Fresero Jr., Kanon vs Draego, El Brujo, Omega (Jalisco), Principe, Rayman, Roberto Paz Jr., Rudy Santana,Smaker [Copa Higher Power]
FILL (Eterno’s class) versus Arena Jalisco (All Carrillo)

Forgot to include this for a few days. The Arena Jalisco crew had mentioned they were coming. Rayman in a trainee match is a ringer. Eterno should file a protest with whoever’s regulating these things.

CMLL (SAT) 08/01/2015 Arena Coliseo
1) Bengala vs Camorra
2) Robin vs Akuma
3) Eléctrico vs Pequeño Nitro
4) Súper Halcón Jr. vs Raziel
5) Hombre Bala Jr. vs Puma
6) Princesa Sugehit & Silueta vs Dalys & Zeuxis
7) Dragon Lee, Fuego, Mistico vs Ephesto, Felino, Mephisto

Hombre Bala Jr. versus Puma sounds awesome.

CMLL (SUN) 08/02/2015 Arena México
1) Molotov & Sensei vs Artillero & Súper Comando
2) Dark Angel, Estrellita, Silueta vs La Comandante, La Seductora, Zeuxis
3) Acero, Aéreo, Eléctrico vs Mercurio, Pequeño Violencia, Pierrothito
4) Blue Panther, Titán, Tritón vs Kamaitachi, Misterioso Jr., Niebla Roja
5) Atlantis, Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr. vs Ephesto, Luciferno, Mephisto
6) Dragon Lee, Mistico, Volador Jr. vs Felino, Rey Escorpión, Shocker

Semimain is a rematch. Pierrothito returns in the segunda, which also continues Aereo versus Pequeno Violencia. Both those could easily happen as something to run against TripleMania (which would dissuade no one from going to TripleMania and would do better on literally any other Sunday.) That 08/09 sh0w seems like one Rush or Sombra would normally be on.

CMLL (SUN) 08/02/2015 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Johnny Dinamo vs Guerrero de la Muerte
2) Capitan Cobra & Meteoro vs Mr. Apolo & Mr. Brisa
3) Nube Roja & Toro Negro vs Évola & Relampago
4) Frezzer, León Blanco, Neutrón vs El Yaqui, Furia Roja, Thunder Boy
5) Metatrón, Super Calo, Super Calo Jr. vs Maléfico, Mr. Trueno, Rey Trueno

Super Calo! Super Calo? Super Calo hasn’t been seen in three years. Calo Jr. turned up a few weeks ago on an indy show. I have no idea why either of them are main eventing this show.

Leon Blanco is also back here for the first time in a year.
