This wasn’t the best CMLL show but it was a memorable one. La Mascara is super professional for wrestling in the main event and making it his way thru it fine. The Copa Junior did what it was intended to do.

MDA was the one who uploaded most of the matches; as ever, I’m caught between being happy we get to see the matches complete at all and confused why they don’t do it a way they can profit and expand off it if they’re going to do it at all. I haven’t seen it yet. Opinions seem to greatly differ on the Navarro/ZSJ match – either just OK or one of the best matches of the year. Attendance seemed down, more so in the expensive seats. Might have been the day change or all the other shows going on for Kid’s Day.
+Lucha has put up the Negro Navarro & Black Terry vs Virus & Hechicero match from the last Lucha Memes show.
AAA tapes tonight in Tlaxcala. The listed main event is Kevin Kross vs Psycho Clown vs Hijo del Fantasma, but it’ll probably change. The show is listed as an 8:30 CT start time, so expect it to turn up around 9:15.
CMLL’s Coliseo show tonight has Diamante Azul, Dragon Lee, Volador Jr. against Negro Casas, Rey Bucanero and Volador in the main event. While there’s not many big indie shows the rest of the weekend, it’s still the biggest weekend of the year in terms of small and local indie shows celebrating tomorrow’s Kid’s Day holiday.
LuchaWorld has a really good bio of Brazo de Oro.
Texano, currently out of action on AAA TV, teamed with La Parka to beat Chessman and Averno in Arena Neza. This show didn’t seem to draw as well as some of their recent ones in the arena.
La Parka and Joaquin Roldan will be honored by the Toluca Hall of Fame on May 11th.
Zeuxis talks about her favorite video games, including the one that inspired her mask.

CMLL (FRI) 05/05/2017 Arena México
1) Oro Jr. & Starman vs Arkángel de la Muerte & Espíritu Negro
2) Estrellita, Marcela, Princesa Sugehit vs Amapola, Dalys, Zeuxis
3) Ángel de Oro vs Ripper [lightning]
4) Esfinge, Guerrero Maya Jr., Soberano Jr. vs Bobby Villa, Dragón Rojo Jr., Pólvora
5) Dragón Lee, Stuka Jr., Titán vs Euforia, Niebla Roja, Último Guerrero
6) Carístico, Diamante Azul, Marco Corleone vs La Máscara, Pierroth, Rush
This doesn’t look promising. Main event is more Ingbornables versus Diamante Azul. Semimain is Niebla Roja having problems with his partners – this might actually be the the turn, it’s the right time. Fourth match looks like the best on the show.
Women’s match is back to normal, and maybe we’ll find out if they’re doing Marcela versus Dalys or Marcela & Sugehit vs Dalys & Zeuxis any time soon. Espiritu Negro being listed in the opener is unlikely, even less likely he’ll be there.
