Dinamic Black was wearing his IWL belt. IWL hasn’t promoted a show in 2013.This Climax looks like a different guy than the Climax Jr. who was more visible a few years ago (and it looks like they teamed together on an indie show, so there you go..)

Today’s Arena Puebla is just five trios matches with no storylines. They could come up with something and create a program quick, since it looks like next week is the week with all the singles matches elsewhere. Last week’s angle was UG fouling Niebla Roja, and neither are around this week. Instead, the main event is Caristico, Dragon Lee & Mistico against the Peste Negra trio of Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas and Cavernario. That has a good a chance of being good as anything; there’s nothing sure fire strong on the show and show without a strong looking matches are easy to skip with the amount of wrestling out there.

Atlantis, Johnny Idol and Marco Corleone take on Hechicero, Ripper and Mascara 2000 in the semifinal. Sagrado continues as the fill in Revolucionario teaming with Dragon Rojo & Polvora against Drone, Esfinge and Tigre Rojo Jr. The opening two matches are mostly locals. Arkalis, Espiritu Maligno and Rey Samuray versus Ares, Disturbio, Hijo del Signo is the segunda. Ares and Espiritu keep being put in the same match week after week, where it looks Ares might have returned just to lose his hair, but they’re not actually interacting in any special way during the matches. Flyer returns to the openers, teaming with Meyer & Paris against Joker, King Jaguar and Policeman. The show will air on CMLL’s YouTube at 9pm.

Titan, Dragon Lee and Volador will team with Jushin Liger against Hiromu Takahashi, Bushi, Evil and Sanada on the first of the two NJPW US shows on 07/01. Their match for day 2 hasn’t been announced as of yet.

CMLL has a note up about the Gran Prix. It’s nothing more than was mentioned on Informa: 09/01 date, NJPW & ROH involved.

Astral and a fan had an incident on the Saturday Coliseo show, though people got in between before anything more than a beer was thrown. You can see it develop at 8:50 in this video. It looked like the fans said something to Astral, Astral walked over to say something else and flipped the drink or food container they were holding, and the fan went after him a moment later. The fans got tossed, but Astral probably also needs a timeout.

AAA will air on FrontRunnerTV (UK) at 9pm on Wednesday. They moved it up a half hour.

The new champs teaming up with Valiente against the Hijos del Infierno. (So much for Volador’s challenge.) Some odd pairings on the rudo side in the undercard, with Cancerbero getting on out his usual pool of guys and the odd ball trio of Canelo, Nitro and Templario.

The first 300 men will get to take a photo with the edecanes. The mascots are also back for father’s day. Pierroth does not fit in his match at all.

Diamante Azul was listed on these shows, and then removed this afternoon. Guess he’s not back.

MDA (SUN) 06/25/2017 Arena Jose Sulaiman, Monterrey, Nuevo Leon
1) Hija de Karonte & Mini Difunto vs Mini Divo & Tsunami

4) Difunto I & Galactar vs Demenzía & Titanik
5) Hijo de LA Park & LA Park vs Máscara & Mxmo Sxy

This is not an interesting lineup but Maximo quickly losing all his vowels is entertaining. Mascara’s name may be meant to be “Mascara El Dios Ingobernable”, it’s unclear.
