CMLL (FRI) 03/03/2017 Arena México [CMLL, ESTO, R de Rudo, thecubsfan]
1) Demus 3:16 & Pequeño Nitro b Fantasy & Último Dragóncito
11:53. Rudos took 1/3.
2) Fuego, Pegasso, Soberano Jr. b Disturbio, Misterioso Jr., Sagrado
12:15. Tecnicos took 1/2.
3) Bobby Villa, Dragón Rojo Jr., Pólvora b Blue Panther, Blue Panther Jr., The Panther
15:03. Revolucionarios took 1/3.
4) Ángel de Oro, Atlantis, Titán b Forastero, Máscara Año 2000, Sansón
18:49. Tecnicos took 2/3.
5) Diamante Azul, Máximo Sexy, Valiente b La Máscara, Pierroth, Rush
8:45. Tecnicos took 2/3, the last when Azul blocked a Pierroth foul and fouled Pierroth himself. Los Ingobernables destroyed and unmasked him after the match just the same.
6) Volador Jr. b Yoshitatsu
12:05. Volador took 2/3 in a match where Yoshitatsu spent much of the match goofing around and trying to play an over the top heel character.
Tirantes story is he got a cramp. I think Tirantes thought Tatsu wasn’t going to bother to kick out, or La Mascara was on the very wrong side of the ring.
Yoshitastu said he would like to come back to CMLL and challenge Maximo for the heavyweight championship. Tatsu is essentially a comedy wrstlers at this point so maybe they could figure out something would work, but last night’s match was so bad that he really shouldn’t be allowed back. Problem is, if CMLL was concerned about having bad matches in big spots, we wouldn’t be getting Diamante Azul versus Pierroth.
Cara Lucha (FRI) 03/03/2017 Arena San Juan Pantitlan, Ciudad Nezahualcóyotl, Estado de México [+LuchaTV, Black Terry Jr. (Flickr), Kronosport]
1) Astrolux & Torito Negro b Black Metal & Moria
2) Keira b Lady Maravilla, Chik Tormenta
Match was billed with a mystery person teaming with Tormenta. They weren’t there, so it became a three way instead.
3) Sky Man b Saturno [MUCHAS LUCHAS CHAMP]
said to be a great match
4) Glen Calavera & Jerry Calavera b Brian Villa & Willy Banderas and Corsario Negro & Drako and Crazy King & Makabre [super libre]
The Calavera brothers beat Crazy King & Makabre to win after the other teams were eliminated. The Neza Kings attacked the Calaveras after the match.
5) Black Terry & Toxin b Demus 3:16 & Yoruba [Juventud y Gloria, semifinal]
Terry & Toxin face Ultimo Guerrero & Templario in the final.
6) Hijo de LA Park & LA Park b Black Tauro (Elite) & Daga
Park beat Daga after an exchange of low blows.
The reviews are really strong on Sky Man & Saturno (the former Quien Pinta por la Corona winner). Black Terry & Toxin vs Ultimo Guerrero & Templario sounds like a good tournament final.
Triton says he’s got his work visa for the US and will be headed back to Chicago. Not sure when he’s going. He’s booked in Mexico at least thru next Saturday.
+LuchaTV has posted both the Centvrion & Mr. Leon vs Metaleon & Latigo tag title match and Arez vs Belial vs Impulso complete from the last WMC show in Arena San Juan
. I’ve heard the tag title match didn’t go particularly well, in part due to the ropes. I was thinking of the wrong week.
The big shows are later this month, but there are many lucha shows of note this weekend:
- Dragon Lee is in New York for ROH
- Coliseo has Caristico, Marco & Valiente against La Mascara, Pierroth and Rush
- The same rudos are scheduled to main event a show starting the same time. It’s the Brazo de Plata 40th anniversary tribute, where they face Atlantis, Diamante Azul & Maximo. It’s s an all CMLL card, with Psycho Clown & Goya Kong around officially only to sign autograph.
- HUMO is running a women’s show in Gimnasio Hercules.
- RIOT in Monterrey is scheduled to have Sammy Guevara vs Jack Evans tonight, which would be Jack Evans first match back from injury.
- There’s an ELITE branded show with LA Park vs Rey Escorpion vs Cibernetico, but it’s likely the name being loaned out to a local promoter.
- Penta and Fenix were scheduled to be in LaSalle, Illinois today for AAW, but Penta is now off the show due to visa issues.
- AAA has a TV taping in Apizaco, with a Psycho Clown vs Dr. Wagner vs Texano Jr. main event. Zorro remains listed in a four way tag title #1 contenders match, weirdly. Aerostar and Super Fly meet in a no DQ match where something terrible will probably happen to Aerostar. The rest of AAA’s roster is in Ciudad Juarez.
- Arena Mexico sees a new minis champion crowned, Pierrothito and Shockercito in a match that should be taped but probably won’t be.
- Lucha Memes has a Dr. Cerebro vs Virus rematch in Salon Citalli
- IWRG has a three way Veneno vs Danny Casas vs Chicano hair match. Chicano’s announced for another hair match in Chihuahua in a few weeks and loses a lot of hair matches. The Apolo Estrada/Relampago title match also happens on this show.
- Monterrey had a big name MDA show with LA Park, Masada, Rush versus Carlito, Chavo Guerrero Jr. & Hernandez as a very odd main event.
- Guadalajara has the NGD versus locals Explosivo, Omar Brunetti and Star Black, which probably sets up a title match next week.
- Daga & Rey Fenix face Bestia and Penta 0M in Mexicali (so it’ll probably show up in highlights on 126F’s channel.)
LuchaRama says they’re running on April 8th at FARO de Oriente in Mexico City.
Pro Wrestling Revolution is bringing Penta el Zero M to northern California.
CMLL (FRI) 03/10/2017 Arena México
1) Fuego & Soberano Jr. vs Misterioso Jr. & Sagrado
2) Drone, Esfinge, Guerrero Maya Jr. vs El Cuatrero, Forastero, Sansón
3) Stuka Jr. vs Bobby Villa [lightning]
4) Atlantis, Marco Corleone, Volador Jr. vs Felino, Negro Casas, Sam Adonis
5) Dragón Lee, Mistico, Valiente vs Euforia, Niebla Roja, Último Guerrero
6) Carístico, Diamante Azul, Máximo Sexy vs La Máscara, Pierroth, Rush
This is a better all around card than last week – Fuego & Soberano are luxuries for an opening match, Volador in a 4th match is odd – though they’re not doing much to build up anything for H2L outside the mask match. Matt Taven isn’t booked yet after all, and the Sky Team are facing the Guerreros. Main event is a rematch of this week’s semimain.
