CMLL weekend results, indie lineups

Templario, a man who is not Shocker/photo by CMLL

CMLL (SAT) 05/13/2017 Arena Coliseo [CMLL]
1) Apocalipsis & Cholo b Bengala & Leono
Rudos took 1/3.
2) Espanto Jr., Inquisidor, Metálico b Flyer, Magia Blanca, Starman
3) Marcela, Princesa Sugehit, Sanely b Dalys, Reyna Isis, Zeuxis
tecnicas took 2/3
4) Blue Panther, Fuego, Stuka Jr. b Cuatrero, Forastero, Sansón
tecnicos took 1/3
5) Ángel de Oro, Atlantis, Carístico b Mephisto, Templario, Último Guerrero
Templario replaced Shocker, who was advertised to return on this show and did interviews to hype it. No explanation was given. Tecnicos took 2/3.

My guess is Shocker just didn’t show up – Templario’s fits as a fill in only if CMLL had no notice Shocker wasn’t going to wrestle (not an injury set back) and Shocker’s had issues not showing up in the past. Shocker’s gone silent on Twitter since around the time this show started.

CMLL (SUN) 05/14/2017 Arena México [CMLL]
1) Mercurio, Pequeño Olímpico, Pequeño Violencia b Aéreo, Eléctrico, Fantasy
Aereo replaced Stukita
2) Esfinge, Pegasso, Stigma b Disturbio, Puma, Sangre Azteca
3) Gran Guerrero, Kráneo, Pólvora b Blue Panther, Johnny Idol, Titán
Polvora replaced Dragon Rojo Jr. Rudos took 1/3.
4) Atlantis, Marco Corleone, Máximo Sexy b Ephesto, Luciferno, Mephisto
tencicos took 2/3
5) Carístico b Euforia
Caristico took 2/3.

A show.

Sam Adonis mentioned he’s starting as color commentator for the CMLL English language show. That’s the show that airs on the Fight Network, but hasn’t been airing lately – maybe this means it will again soon.

AAA’s press release says this round of La Llave de la Gloria winners will be announced on Wednesday. It also says things which are false or fabricated. The press release reads like someone wrote it on Wednesday, quotes and all, and didn’t stop to update it after the tryout actually happened.

The guy in charge of El Rey’s RT-ing the article where Vampiro says no Lucha Underground wrestlers will not being appearing on Impact is a thing that happened.

Today in social media issues condensed: UK’s Lucha Forever had Pentagon, Drago and Fenix booked for May 14th. Lucha Forever had to postpone the show, said to be due to venue issues. The LU guys got booked out to someone else in the UK. The LU guys got to London, and couldn’t find anyone to pick them up for wherever it is they were going. Vampiro went after Lucha Forever on Twitter & Facebook, while Lucha Forever said they had a guy there waiting to pick them up. The guys got picked up, I assume, and then everyone went back and deleted everything. Life went on!

In an interview from the last show in Tijuana, Roberto Figueroa talks positive about the Crash, says it could be the #1 company in Mexico in the coming months.

Lucha Memes/MDA on 06/04 in Arena Puebla

This show already looks loaded. You know, I watch shows weekly live from Arena Puebla on the internet without a problem. Just saying!

MDA in Arena Coliseo Guadalajara on 06/18

Mucha Luchas Guadalajara announced they’re back on 07/02. If I remember/understood correctly, I believe a recent edition of Fuego en el Ring said the promotion was working on getting Flamita for their next show.

In Japan, Okumura was interviewed about his beck injury: he started doing rehab work right away, but he still has numbness in his thumb and index finger on his right hand. Okumura is getting his one month check up on May 18th, will return to Mexico to recover if everything looks good, and then be back in October for another check up (with MRI scans being sent to Japan in between.) He still hopes to be back wrestling by December, though that may be more positive thinking that something he can accomplish.

IWRG (WED) 05/17/2017 Arena Naucalpan
1) Fly Tiger & Puma de Oro vs Bambino & Satana X
2) Blue Monsther, Shadow Boy, Voltar vs Atomic Star, Guerrero 2000, Picudo Jr.
3) Acero & Kanon vs Máquina Infernal & Takle
4) Hijo del Alebrije, Mike, Teelo vs Lunatik Xtreme, Skanda, Vortiz
5) Ángel Oriental, Aramis, Black Dragón, Demonio Infernal, Diablo Jr., Kanon, Keiser Drago, Power Bull vs Aspirantito Jr., Boxter, Fandango, Kilvan, Kronoz, Toxin, Tromba, Yoruba [Copa Higher Power]
Gym Fill (Black Terry) vs Gym Lucha Libre Boom (Fantasma de la Opera)

Lucha Libre Boom is running here on Friday, so their students stop by a couple days early for a trainee show.  LLB running on Friday also means it’s a three show week for Naucalpan (or quite a while before a normal IWRG show, since the Super Astro show is on the 24th.)

RIOT (SAT) 05/20/2017 Arena Femenil, Monterrey, Nuevo León
1) Psicótico vs Muerte Extrema
2) Chik Tormenta vs Christi Jaynes
3) Dowki, Kaientai, Lord Byron vs Erick Ortiz, Kamikaze, Kratoz
4) Fly Warrior vs Dralion
5) Low Rider & Sammy Guevara vs Dulce Kanela & Larry Miranda Jr.
6) Flamita vs Último Ninja

Final lineup for the RIOT show next Saturday. I really want to see the main event. Not enough to actually go to Monterrey, but I’d still like to see it.

CMLL (SAT) 05/20/2017 Arena Coliseo
1) Acero & Stukita vs Pequeño Universo 2000 & Pequeño Violencia
2) Leono, Príncipe Diamante, Sangre Imperial vs Canelo Casas, Nitro, Templario
3) Estrellita, La Vaquerita, Sanely vs La Comandante, La Seductora, Metálica
4) Drone, Fuego, Rey Cometa vs Hechicero, Luciferno, Niebla Roja
5) La Máscara, Pierroth, Rush vs Ángel de Oro, Stuka Jr., Valiente [Relevos Increíbles]

Niebla Roja teamed up with non Guerrero rudos, but his issues seem to be more with being a rudo than being a Guerrero, so that’ll probably go no differently. Is Leono the second best wrestler in the segunda?

CMLL (SUN) 05/21/2017 Arena México
1) Bengala & Fiero vs Cholo & Yago
2) Flyer, Magia Blanca, Robin vs Cancerbero, Espanto Jr., Raziel
3) Oro Jr., Pegasso, Soberano Jr. vs Cuatrero, Forastero, Sansón
4) Johnny Idol, Stuka Jr., Valiente vs Cavernario, Kráneo, Sam Adonis
5) Atlantis, Carístico, Marco Corleone vs Gran Guerrero, Mr. Niebla, Último Guerrero

Fiero & Yago’s are in the One Match A Month club, which probably doesn’t work out for them so well.

Every match on this show is technically a first time ever match, but CMLL’s done an outstanding job of making everyone feel about the same so it comes off as a card we’ve seen many times before.

Lucha Memes (SUN) 05/21/2017 Coliseo Coacalco, Coacalco, Estado de México
1) Ángel De La Tormenta & Filder vs Cometa & Dragón Force
2) Gato De Ecatepec vs 19 Y Medio
3) Eterno vs Komander
4) Silueta vs Marcela
5) Arez, Belial, Impulso vs Black Dragón, Demonio Infernal, Dragón
6) Aramis vs Star Jr.
7) Keira & Lady Maravilla vs Alas de Acero & Iron Kid
8) Hechicero vs Solar I

This seems to have less big outside names than usual, so it might be a smaller turnout, but Eterno/Komander, Aramis/Star, Hechicero/Solar and the trios match all look interesting.

CMLL (SUN) 05/21/2017 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Avispón Negro Jr. & Capitán Cobra vs Destello & Quca
2) El Alteño & Fantástico vs Guerrero de la Muerte & Mr. Apolo
3) Tigre Blanco vs Linterna [lightning]
4) Cosmos, Metatrón, Neutrón vs León Blanco, Ráfaga, Relámpago Azul
5) Joker, Star Black, Vaquero Jr. vs Explosivo, Nautilius, Sádico

The main event must be an unlisted Relevos Increíbles match or a lot of turns went down tonight. Linterna/Tigre Blanco matched up in the segunda, so something probably did go down with them.
