This show didn’t stream; CMLL said they had an issue with their fiber internet connection. The show was still recorded and will be put up when the internet’s fixed. I suspect today’s CMLL Informa isn’t going to happen if it’s not fixed by then.

Rey Bucanero was surprised to find Rey Bucanero was working those ROH/RevPro shows in the UK. He’s pleased too, and maybe looking to get in better condition before those matches. Bucanero says he’s thrilled to represent CMLL internationally since he hasn’t had that chance in a long time. He mentions he once had a sort of performance/exhibition in London, but hadn’t had a real match there before this tour.

Ernesto Ocampo reports Paco Alonso actually did appointed Ultimo Guerrero as the new head of the luchador union on Thursday, which is what set off the Alvarados. Alonso and CMLL undid the decision on Saturday after Ocampo’s article pointed out the issues with the union. I’d assume that means Alonso still very much wants Ultimo Guerrero to be head of the union, but may have to wait until December for it to happen.

Arturo Rivera took to Facebook to defend the Alvarados and dispute reporting on the situation without offering any new information on what occurred. It’s basically the Spanish language version of what Vampiro wrote in English on Saturday, where the real enemies are deemed to be the vile media and Ultimo Guerrero and Psycho Clown’s actions were justified. (They’re treating this like a lucha libre finish where the rudo fouls the tecnico, the tecnico fouls the rudo back, and it’s unfair when the justified tecnico is the one disqualified.) I’m looking forward to what Leo Riano writes in Record about this, as he also seems to speak for AAA in these situations, but it seems unlikely Psycho Clown will be in any trouble with AAA over this incident.

This week’s Zona Ruda includes an interview with La Hiedra.

Poder del Norte have t-shirts!

Tonight’s Arena Naucalpan show is the loaded Super Astros anniversary show, including a LA Park & Rey Escorpion vs Zorro & Penta 0M main event.

RCH held a press conference for their 06/02 show in Naucalpan. They announced Demus will replace Black Terry in his match against Impulso. Terry was double booked with The Crash in Tijuana on that date.

HUMO’s 06/03 show is canceled. They’re not totally direct about why, but between the announcement and a comment on Facebook that SuperLuchas notes, CMLL said to HUMO they wouldn’t let their luchadoras face indie luchadoras and HUMO decided it was better to cancel than to shuffle everything. The main event was scheduled as Dalys, La Comandante and Marcela versus the Moreno sisters (Cinthia, Esther, and Rossy). The Morenos used to be in AAA, but none of them have worked there for years, so it’s not clear why CMLL would have an issue.

CMLL (TUE) 05/30/2017 Arena México

6) Marco Corleone vs Terrible

It’s not physically possible for Volador to make both this show and the NJPW show the next day unless someone invents time travel. They probably just threw a name because it was a Maximo booking and they haven’t figured out who gets the spot yet.

Niebla Roja versus the Guerreros in the semimain. Sagrado sliding into the Bobby Villa spot in the tercera. Universo 2000 getting booked decently from the start.
