Zeuxis remains champion, Atlantis vs Volador & UG vs Rush in Elite

CMLL (SUN) 08/07/2016 Arena México [CMLL]
1) Flyer & Sensei DQ Artillero & Inquisidor
Artillero unmasked Sensei.
2) Astral, Fantasy, Último Dragóncito b Mercurio, Pequeño Olímpico, Pequeño Violencia
3) Zeuxis © b Princesa Sugehit [MEX WOMEN]
Zeuxis took 2/3 to keep the title. 7th defense, 3rd straight vs Sugehit (and 4th overall) Sugehit challenged Zeuxis to a mask match.
4) Euforia, Último Guerrero, Vangellys b Dragón Rojo Jr., Pierroth, Rey Escorpión
Vangellys beat Rey Escorpion
5) Atlantis, Marco Corleone, Volador Jr. b Cavernario, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas
Marco Corleone replaced Valiente on Friday. Negro Casas was back after missing the last two matches via injury.

There’s no mention of a Vangellys/Rey Escorpion singles match, but one is surely coming. I don’t take Sugehit’s challenge too seriously, but there’s a lot of possible midcard apuesta matches if CMLL wants to do them (and most are more interesting than Rey Bucanero/Super Crazy.)

It didn’t occur to me until seeing this video with La Mascara talking about it, but Alvardo cousins are going to main event the major CMLL and AAA events within days of each other, both putting their masks on the line. Psycho Clown and La Mascara are cousins, and teamed with other a lot (with Maximo as the third) from 2001 to 2004 when they all were still wrestling as “Brazo de” Juniors. CMLL got behind of Maximo and La Mascara right away, while Kronos was left behind and never really went anywhere until he became Psycho Clown.

Teddy Hart’s story is no one told him the match with Xtreme Tiger was escape only and that he was told about the match on one day’s notice. Teddy hints at it being sabotage to make him look bad and, even though it’s Teddy, I kind of believe that’s possible.

RudoVision interviewed Rush, which LigerFever translated. Rush wants his match with LA Park to be the Anniversary main event, which good luck on that. It is worth wondering if the Dragon Lee/La Mascara match was always supposed to be the Anniversary main event or if Rush/LA Park led to Rush being removed from the match.

La Parka is happy to be on TripleMania. I’d wonder how many more he has left in the ring, but it’s Mexico so he probably will be around for another 20.

This week’s AAA TV show is up.

RobViper has a music video of 12/05/15 AAA, his final AAA video.

Lucha Memes has a 10/23 show in Coaclaco (Chairo Bill Vol 2)
1: Titan vs Sammy Guevara


ELITE (THU) 08/11/2016 Arena México
1) Astral & Eléctrico vs Pequeño Olímpico & Pierrothito
2) El Bandido, Emperador Azteca, Último Ninja vs El Cuatrero, Fresero Jr., Sansón
3) Flamita & Golden Magic vs Argos & Rey Cometa
4) Atlantis vs Volador Jr. [Liga Elite]
5) Carístico, Máscara Dorada, Máximo vs Ephesto, Mephisto, Sharlie Rockstar
6) Último Guerrero vs Rush [Liga Elite]

Elite’s back to doing a lot of intra-CMLL matchups, and Rush should be on this shows near regularly to make up all the match he’s missed in the tournament so far. Both matches should be good, this is the first real singles match between Atlantis & Volador in 3 years, and Ultimo Guerrero’s starting to get to the point where he needs to win some of these.

Flamita was pulled from his last Elite appearance, not by choice of Flamita or Elite, so it’s worth watching to see if he’ll be on this show.
