Capitan Cobra replaced Neutron. Tecnicos took 1/3.
5) Gallo & Vaquero Jr. © b Kempo Dragón & Príncipe Kisho [Pacific Coast TAG]
first defense. Jalisco team took 2/3. Match came down to Kisho & Gallo. Kempo snuck in and tried to dropkick Gallo, but got Kisho instead, and Gallo got the win.

The Sinaloa team had an ongoing debate about cheating or not cheating, so that’s a good finish.

IWRG (SUN) 05/29/2016 Arena Naucalpan [+LuchaTV, The Gladaitores]
1) Dragón Fly b Atomic Star
Atomic Star (or maybe Atomic Boy) replaced Galaxy.
2) Astro & Geo b Enigma & Hip Hop Man Enigma & Hip Hop Man vs Astro & Geo (posted by thecubsfan)
Hip Hop Man & Enigma were listed on both sides of the match in the poster. Box y Lucha has Astro & Geo.
3) Apolo Estrada Jr. & Eterno b Freelance & Pantera I and Diablo Jr. & Imposible and Cerebro Negro & Dr. Cerebro
4) Dinamic Black, Hijo De Dos Caras, Ultramán Jr. b Fuerza Guerrera, Golden Magic, Trauma II Dinamic Black, Hijo De Dos Caras, Ultramán Jr. vs Fuerza Guerrera, Golden Magic, Trauma I (posted by thecubsfan)
the Lupus/Electro/Toscano team attacked Dos after the match, bleeding into the match match.
5) Demon Clown, Máscara Año 2000 Jr., Trauma I b Canis Lupus, Mr. Electro, Toscano Demon Clown, Máscara Año 2000 Jr., Trauma I vs Canis Lupus, Mr. Electro, Toscano (posted by thecubsfan)
Demon Clown’s first match since January, which was a one week return. Danny Casas was taken out at the start of the match a Trauma I martinete. (Partner on partner!) Mascara 2000 Jr., who just happened to be there, replaced him. Demon beat Mr. Electro. Hijo de Dos challenged literally everyone to hair and mask matches.

No one’s brought up a cage match yet, but that seems to be where all of this is going. I don’t know if Demon Clown can make it out of a cage. They had a cage match last June 7th (where an exotico who never had a match before or after under that name lost heir mask), so maybe it could happen as soon as this Sunday.

5) La Máscara, Shocker, Último Guerrero b Ángel de Oro, Máximo Sexy, Valiente LA MEJOR LUCHA LIBRE EN VIVO DESDE LA ARENA PUEBLA 30 DE MAYO DEL 2016 (posted by VideosOficialesCMLL)
11:33. Rudos took 1/3 clean.
6) Carístico & Negro Casas b Máscara Dorada & Mephisto [Relevos Increíbles] LA MEJOR LUCHA LIBRE EN VIVO DESDE LA ARENA PUEBLA 30 DE MAYO DEL 2016 (posted by VideosOficialesCMLL)
9:39. Dorada seemed to suffer a knee injury, but was fine by the third fall. Team Caristico took 1/3. Caristico mocked the rudo fans boos and demanded a title match with Mephisto. Mephisto agreed, but wanted a mask match should he win.

Show was disappointing; we only got a few minutes of the main event at the level that could be expected (and it was weird that Dorada & Mephisto were rudos last week and tecnicos this week.) Fourth match was best on the show.

The big match on today’s Arena Mexico show is Stuka Jr. challenging Ultimo Guerrero for the NWA Middleweight championship. It’d be unlikely for Stuka to win; it’s Ultimo Guerrero, and Stuka hasn’t had a lot of success in singles title matches.

The real goal for Stuka will to be yank Ultimo Guerrero out his usual formula.

The actual main event is the Hijos del Infierno versus Diamante Azul, Maximo, Mistico, which seems like a sub-10 minute match. The best match might be the fourth match, Blue Panther, Guerrero Maya, Rey Cometa Jr. versus Dragon Rojo, Hechicero and Kraneo. The preview lists the Japanese trio replacing the Cancerbero trios. Virus is good, but usually not as good with his partners around, so I think this is an improvement.

The show airs at the usual 7:30pm time on & YouTube.

AAA tapes tonight in Arena Aficion (probably). It’s being taped before the Lucha World Cup, but won’t air until after it, and appears to be the final TV taping before Verano de Escandalo. No matches have been announced for that show yet, but perhaps that’ll happen tonight. The fourth match is a trios title #1 contenders match between Fenix, Drago, and Aerostar against Ricky Marvin, Chessman and Averno, and the winners figures to get that title shot on the next show. The winners also figure to be Fenix, Drago and Aerostar, allowing Averno & Chessman to defend against the Apaches.

The actual main event is a three way between Pagano, Psycho Clown and Pentagon. Pagano’s friends will all be there – Nicho, Damian and Halloween face Australian Suicide, Bengala and Argenis in a match which doesn’t sound promising from the tecnicos. The only other Perro there is Taya, in a women’s tag with La Hiedra against Faby & Mary Apache. The semimain is Texano & Dr. Wagner vs Mesias & Hernandez, another variation of the AAA guys versus members of Team Trump. Apache and Venum run into each other in the atomicos opener.

The taping is listed at 8:30pm, though it’ll be a little bit after that. It’ll be covered on the SuperLuchas.

Cerverza Victoria has a four minute documentary on Faby Apache that’s pretty good.

Chairo 4 on 06/19 in Arena Naucalpan
1: Impulso vs Freelance, hair vs hair
2: Keria, Aeroboy, Demasiado vs Mini Multifacetico, Brole, Prayer
3: Alas de Acero, Aramis, Iron Kid vs Soberano Jr., Hombre Bala Jr., Star Jr.
4: Black Terry & Dr. Cerebro vs Guerrero Maya Jr. & Virus
5: Trauma I & Trauma II vs Ultimo Guerrero & Hechicero

This is now a crazy card.

LuchaWorld has this week’s Poster-Mania, and the latest Lucha Report.

The cover of Luchas 2000 #825 has many things on it, including Pierroth vs La Mascara.

Mary Apache doesn’t think much of the Canadian Lucha World Cup Team, but thinks the Japan one will be tough.

Canek says the people don’t want to see flying, they want to see people who fight like him.

Black Terry will put national sentiment aside when deciding best wrestler winners and the other awards.

Atlantis says he doesn’t know what’s next in the career of Atlantis, but would participate in the Gran Prix if asked.

Pictures of CMLL’s inflatable toys. These are one of the relatively few people they have in the in-store Arena Mexico store, though I didn’t see anyone ever buy one (and couldn’t figure out why – they have much more varieties in this store.)

Super Boy and his sons are part of a Univision web series about training to be a luchador. The series was announced a few weeks ago at the Univision upfront but they failed to hype the Super Boy involvement.

  1. Can I just say that Dragon Rojo and Zeuxis (who follows me onTwitter) are cool people? Thing I didn’t know about Dragon Rojo, he is a big basketball fab as he was tweeting a lot during Game 7 of the GSW/OKC game.

  2. I had no idea that web series was for Univision. Thought it was just for that youtube celeb who has a ton of followers, views, etc. Don’t know if Superboy even knew it might be on Univision.

    Dragon Rojo Jr.’s a big sports fan. Tweets about baseball & football too. Always comes off as a really nice guy in interviews and as a judge on En Busca de un Idolo.

  3. I think it’s just that Univision is funding the bill, but not that it’ll air on the network itself.

  4. Ah, ok that’s probably why he said it was a web series. Very curious to see if Rush makes a cameo on any future episode since that’s were they all are training.

  5. “Canek says the people don’t want to see flying, they want to see people who fight like him.”

    He should find those fans and get them to attend his Leyendas Inmortales shows that draw 100 people on the reg.
