Cometa & Cavernario agree to title match, Gran Prix to be an iPPV


CMLL (FRI) 06/03/2016 Arena México
1) Shockercito & Último Dragóncito b Pequeño Olímpico & Pequeño Violencia
2) Fujin, Okumura, Raijin b Fuego, Pegasso, Tritón
Rudos took 2/3. Triton was stretchered out after taking a German suplex from Okumura.
3) Amapola, Dalys, Zeuxis b Estrellita, Marcela, Princesa Sugehit
4) Rey Cometa, Stuka Jr., Titán b Cavernario, Felino, Mr. Niebla
Tecnicos tok 1/3. Cometa & Cavernario feuded, fought after the match, and signed for a title match next week.
5) La Máscara b Pierroth
straight falls. Pierroth was DQed for unmasking Mascara, Mascara unmasked Pierroth and cradled him for the win. Mask match challenges followed, but nothing was made official.
6) Atlantis, Marco Corleone, Valiente b Negro Casas, Shocker, Último Guerrero

I didn’t watch this show yet, but the fourth match sounds like it’s worth checking out.

The 07/01 show was officially announced as an iPPV. They’d been hyping it like one for the last couple weeks. No price is up on cleeng yet. They’re hinting Pierroth/La Mascara or even Cavernario/Cometa in a hair match could happen on that show, but nothing has made official.

Triton’s injury was taken seriously (and it’s not one of the moves they normally use a stretcher for), but there’s no particular mention of it in the recap. He’s next known to work on Monday.

MARTINEZ (FRI) 06/03/2016 8105 Campo Bowie West Blvd, Benbrook, Texas [+LuchaTV, CMLL]
1) Peligroso ?? Súper Brazo 2000
2) El Pulgas b Mini Laredo Kid
3) Violento Jack b Arez
money thrown in
4) Ronnie Mendoza b Último Ninja
Good match. Arez attacked Ultimo Ninja after the match to set up their own 1v1.
5) Low Rider & Mystique b Chik Tormenta & Silver Tiger
sets up a Low Rider/Silver Tiger mask vs hair and Mystique vs Chik Tormenta hair vs hair (between masked luchadoras) on July 15th.
6) Laredo Kid b Flamita, Aerostar, Séptimo Dragón
Laredo beat Aerostar. Aerostar took a strong blow to the eye from Laredo Kid, but was back on Twitter afterwards. Good match, money thrown in.

This show sounds like it was pretty good. There’s a very short clip of Aerostar’s dive in the main event here. The group is in Houston today, with Aerostar & Laredo vs Flamita & Ultimo Ninja.

No big catchup news from last night’s World Cup. Mathews noted he didn’t even have a headset; they didn’t have producer or director for the English team either, so I guess that’s not a surprise. (That seems to be the same thing they’ve done before, and what NJPW’s done on their shows.)

AAA’s recap lists the winner of the main event as “Aztec Dragon”, so that’s apparently the name we’re supposed to know Rey Horuz by. That’s even though the on-screen graphics had him listed as “Dragon Azteca” and he did interviews on Thursday as “Dragon Azteca” and a day later he’s still being listed as Dragon Azteca on their Twitter. I would assume 99% of the people who bought that iPPV watch Lucha Underground or are at least aware of his name is supposed to be Dragon Azteca. You look minor league when you don’t spend just 15 seconds explaining why you’re not calling the guy by his normal name, and they’re investing a lot of this in to looking major league. This one of those things that I feel is symbolic of greater issues with how AAA does things (see Pentagon Jr. saying they were doing 1 fall no time limit matches in an interview on Wednesday) but is really still kind of a minor issue.

They’re all off today, with the next show tomorrow afternoon in Mexico City.

Tonight’s Coliseo show has La Mascara, Euforia, and Niebla Roja vs Atlantis, Diamante Azul and Angel de Oro. The previews is over the top in hyping the matches.

Stuka Jr. says Ultimo Guerrero was working with a knee injury in their title match.

Segunda Caida reviews Hechicero vs Virus.

Aeroboy talks about his mask versus hair match with Black Terry next weekend.

Cavernario/Cometa should be really great. Sky Team versus Guerreros in the main event, with Pierroth/La Mascara dumped to the fourth match.

  1. Is Rush somehow suspended from Arena Mexico? Next week will be the third friday in a row without him.

  2. AAA should have learned by now to anticipate to these situations, they need to work on the organization of their big events because mistakes like these really make them look minor league.
