IWRG (SUN) 06/26/2016 Arena Naucalpan [+LuchaTV, Black Terry Jr. (Flickr), The Gladiatores]
1) Fireman b Atomic Star
2) Adrenalina & Hip Hop Man b Alas de Acero & Aramis
Alas de Acero’s first match here in 3 months.
3) Leo, Mike, Rafy, Teelo b Black Terry, Spartan, the Tiger (Tamaulipas), Violencia Jr.
Spartan and the Tiger replaced the Cerebros.
4) Danny Casas, Hijo De Dos Caras, Zatura b Apolo Estrada Jr., Relámpago, Toscano
Dos pinned Toscano, who argued it was a two count. Zatura looked good.
5) Mr. Electro, Trauma I, Trauma II b Canis Lupus, Eterno, Máscara Año 2000 Jr.
Mr. Electro dropped Mascara with a martinete to win (ref missing it while trying to get rid of a bottle), then dropkicked him off the stretcher. Hair match is coming wtih those two. Trauma I & Canis Lupus fought in the back after the match.
IWRG seems to tease Canis Lupus mask matches every year and they don’t often happen, but I’d guess Mr. Elektro/Mascara is actually happening.
Black Terry Jr. has video of Trauma and Canis Lupus fighting more backstage.
Puebla tonight has the first ever Rush/Ciberentico match, which should be interesting if not safely good. The rest of card is a bit shaky, but the second match (Black Tiger, Hombre Bala, Super Halcon vs Ares, King Jaguar, Policeman) might be good, and the semimain has the weirdness of Mistico, Volador and Johnny Idol taking on Rey Escorpion, Tama Tonga, Tanga Loa. The link to the feed is here, and the show starts about 45 minutes from this post.
The replacement main event in Arena Coliseo Monterrey was Konnan Big vs Garza Jr/Hijo del Ninja. Garza was part of the build up to the match and makes sense as a replacement for Rush. They announced the change early in the card. Rush apologized for missing the show in Monterrey on Sunday due to flight issues. His flight was delayed 2.5 hours, though it sounds like he missed an earlier one.
