1) Fantástico & Magnum b Linterna & Mr. Apolo
tecnicos took 1/3
2) Puma, Tiger, Virus b Esfinge, Pegasso, Starman
Rudos took 1/3
3) Kráneo, Luciferno, Mephisto b Johnny Idol, Rey Cometa, Stuka Jr.
Kraneo replaced Ephesto (still out with an injury). Rudos took 1/3.
4) Negro Casas b Dragón Lee
Casas took falls 2/3. Fans threw money in.
5) Atlantis, Carístico, Diamante Azul DQ La Máscara, Pierroth, Rush
Tecnicos took 1/3, Pierroth unmasked Diamante Azul for the DQ. Los Ingobernables ended up unmasking all three tecnicos.
Casas/Lee will air locally, but the show is blacked out nationally. CMLL could upload the match or air it somewhere elsewhere else if they’d like, but that’s not an important thing to them. Casas beating Lee is something that I would have a problem with if it was pretty much anyone beside Casas. He can win forever and it’s fine.
CMLL tonight has an Atlantis/Ultimo Guerrero match. It feels like a match we’ve seen a lot, but you can slice it up that it’s sort of a fresh match in Arena Mexico. They haven’t had a CMLL singles match in that specific building since the 2015 Universal final. They have had one in Elite, and in Colise, and twice in Puebla. Still, it’s 10 months since they’ve had a singles matches at all, a miracle given CMLL’s love of matching up the same half dozen people in singles matches. It should be good if predictable, as they always are. Ultimo Guerrero’s title being on the line means he’s probably winning, but it’s far enough for the Universal tournament that they could figure out the title math later.
The Copa Junior Nuevo Valores also starts tonight. CMLL’s run Copa Juniors before, sometimes with top guys and sometimes with early match lucahdors. “Nuevo Valores” here indicated “people not important to get into the Reyes del Aire last week”. Soberano, Cuatrero, The Panther and Drone all are good and stand a chance of winning. Oro Jr., Canelo, Hijo del
Santo Signo and Espanto are neither good nor have a shot.
The dream tecnico trio of Caristico, Dragon Lee and Mistico face Euforia, Gran Guerrero and Niebla Roja in the semimain, which should be a tecnico win given the issues Niebla Roja is having with his partners. Diamante Azul, Stuka and Valiente versus Mephisto, Negro Casas and Sam Adonis in a fourth match; Adonis get to replace Ephesto, but may regret it when he takes an Azul German suplex.
Angel de Oro versus Hechicero was added late to the show as a lightning match. Shockercito, Stukita and Ultimo Dragoncito take on Mercurio, Pequeno Nitro and Pierroth in what could be a pretty good minis match if they have some freedom and interest.
The show will air at 8:30pm on ClaroSports. I’ll be live streaming in on my YouTube channel if they geoblock it again.
AAA also has a rare non-TV show in Arena Naucalpan tonight. Main event is scheduled to be Monster Clown, Murder Clown and Pagano against La Parka, Psycho Clown and Texano Jr., but Texano may not around.
Promociones del Pueblo has a brief text interview with Dulce Garcia (Sexy Star) talking about her boxing bout, which still has no opponent named. This would actually seem incredibly unfair to Garcia under normal circumstances, not knowing who you’re going go to fight would seem to make it more challenging, but no one expects to be normal circumstances. The card (and I assume her match, though it’s not said) will air on Televisa Deportes in Mexico but doesn’t seem as though it airs in the US.
Lucha Memes/MDA has Chairo 10 on April 28 in Arena Naucalpan
Will air on: nothing announced
Back in January, Hechicero threw out a challenge to ZSJ, so fans were wondering why he wasn’t in this match. Dhani Ledesma of Lucha Memes posted a video last night explaining it, but the video disappeared – it seemed like it cut off, so it may be a tech issue than changing his mind about things. In the video, he explained Sabre is very tough to get, running on Friday helped make it possible, but CMLL needed Hechicero on this Friday so they had to go a different direction.
LuchaWorld has the latest news update.
