IWRG (SUN) 07/31/2016 Arena Naucalpan [+LuchaTV, The Gladiatores]
1) Fireman b Guerrero 2000
2) Araña de Plata & Picudo Jr. b Aramis & Keiser Drago
3) Demonio Infernal, Skanda, Violencia Jr. b Astro, Black Dragón, Zatura
Good match. Skanda was hurt after a Black Dragon dive.
4) Black Terry, Freelance, Pantera I b Cerebro Negro, Hip Hop Man, Relámpago
Pantera I survived the Cerebro Driver and challenged him to the match. Black Terry replaced Emperador Azteca.
5) Negro Navarro, Toscano, Trauma II DQ Chicano, Hijo del Pantera, Pantera
Pantera unmasked Trauma II after Trauma II had done the same to Hijo del Pantera. Panteras want a trios title champion.
6) Mr. Electro & Trauma I b Canis Lupus & Máscara Año 2000 Jr.
bloody match. Trauma I beat Canis Lupus after Mascara accidentally hit him with a chair. Everyone challenged everyone else. Seems like it’ll be a Trauma & Canis putting up their masks, Mascara putting up his hair, and Electro the IWRG Heavyweight title.
Seems like maybe a big show coming up, with three different title matches teased.
XMW (SUN) 07/31/2016 Salón Citlalli, Ecatepec, Estado de México [+LuchaTV, Kronosport]

4) Puma King & Tiger b Metaleón & Mr. Leo
Great match, money thrown in.
5) Arez b XL, Fly Warrior [XNL CHAMP]
Surprise, advertised as a TNA person, ended up being Fly Warrior. Arez won the title from XL, but XL explained the airport lost his bag with the title in it. XL said Arez would come to Chile to defend the title.
6) Wotan b Demoledor © [XMW EXTREMO]
Chuey Martinez did not appear. Wotan beat Demoledor.
Show got strong reviews, with 3/4/5 said to be pretty good.
Today’s Puebla show is a relevos increibles trios match, following up on last week’s singles match. Ultimo Guerrero cheated to defeat Volador Jr. this past Monday, and they’re on opposite sides of the match again. Volador teams with Shocker and Mistico, while Ultimo Guerrero teams with La Mascara, and Marco Corleone. CMLL suggested Volador/UG might soon meet again but everything seems to be revolving around La Mascara. This one might not be any different.
Dalys defends her women’s championship against Lluvia in the fourth match. A title change is unlikely and the match quality is hard to figure; both women try hard, but their results are inconsistent. The semimain is Atlantis, Blue Panther and Stuka versus Rey Bucanero, Terrible, and Vangellys. The tercera has the Panther brothers & Stigma versus the Felino trio (Felino, Puma, Tiger), and might be the best match of the night. The Dinamita brothers team with local Ares against Black Tiger, Rey Samuray and Starman in the second match, though Starman missed his last match. Arkalis & Millenium versus Espiritu Maligno & Sauron open the show.
CultIcon also previews this show. The show takes place at 9pm CT, and will be on CMLL.com & YouTube.
La Hiedra replaces Taya this Friday in Tijuana.
There’s advertisements in Ciudad Juarez for an AAA TV taping on 11/20. AAA taped there the same week last year. There’s plenty of people on the poster, including a big mystery person in the middle, but it’s unlikely they’ve got a card worked out three months in advance.
Morelos luchadors Drako, Electro and Fonseca III say they’re going to France to wrestle at a festival in October.
Cross Arm Breaker reviews Gran Apache vs Oscar Sevilla in the rain and the hair match that followed it.
Luchas 2000 #834 has TripleMania and CMLL’s Anniversary show on the cover. Someday, they’ll figure out to stop replying to people so everyone can see their posts.
indy (FRI) 08/12/2016 Unidad Deportiva Rosarito, Rosarito, Baja California
1) Flamita & Torito vs ? & Tiago
2) Keira & Lady Maravilla vs Candy White & Jarocha
3) Hector Garza Jr. & Romero vs Tony Casanova & Último Ninja
4) El Hijo Del Santo & Rayman vs Ángel Blanco & El Hijo del Medico Asesino
Flamita & Mascarita Dorada is some kind of team. I have no idea what they’re not the semimain.
