10:39. Dragon Rojo Jr. replaced Mr. Niebla on Tuesday. Adonis wore a Love Machine mask for the first fall and was DQed for excessive violence. The commissioner was going to stop him from wrestling until he unmasked, but Panther just unmasked Adonis himself. Rudos took 2/3, with Adonis using the ropes to get the pinfall in the third fall. Panther challenged Adonis to a hair match.

22:41. Volador took falls took 2/3 to win the Universal championship for the first time.

Top two matches, main event especially, are worth watching. The main event didn’t start until 10:58 local time because the show had run so long, but they gave them all the time they wanted. It was a loud crowd, though one that wasn’t that much in to the hair match as far as I could tell. It appeared to be on the larger side of the regular Friday night cards, but not the level of a one of the biggest shows of the year.

Pierroth & Vangellys having nothing special going on after the last couple weeks of shenanigans was strange. I don’t know if CMLL wanted it to be more serious to protect the hair match stipulation or if they wanted it that way themselves, but it’s a match almost anyone else would’ve tried many tricks to hide. On the other hand, most anyone else would’ve not bothered to run the match.

The Crash (FRI) 07/14/2017 Auditorio de Tijuana, Tijuana, Baja California [@PandillaLucha, 126f, The Crash]
1) Eli Everfly, Famous B, Último Maldito b Arkángel Divino, Black Boy, Último Panda

3) Rey Horus & The King b Hanson & Raymond Rowe and Sami Callihan & Shane Strickland
said to be an excellent match
4) Bestia 666 b Jack Evans [super libre]
Earlier in the night, Garza offered Bestia a spot in his new Rebelion (Yellow). Bestia accepted, and took out both his father Damian and Nicho when they tried to argue with him. Bestia was booed the rest of the night. Black Danger and Jonathan helped Bestia in this one. Oraculo attempted ot help Jack but ended up hurt.
5) Garza Jr. & M-ximo DQ Daga & Santo Jr.
Garza faked a foul
6) Penta Zero M b La MáscaraJeff CobbMarty Scurll
This was announced, just prior to the match, as the winner getting into the match for a debuting The Crash Heavyweight Championship match. There were no more details so far.

It sounds like this was a good show all around, with the three way tag match coming across as a must see match based on Twitter reactions. The matches are supposed to go up on Konnan’s Patreon.

They’re running just about every three weeks, which would put the next show in Tijuana around August 5th (and they’ve announced Mexicali for the day before, so that fits.)

Lots of stuff this weekend:

Saturday

One thought on “Volador Universal Champ, The Crash results, AAA in Monterrey

  1. I watched the Long Beach NJPW shows on tv, and I was not impressed at all by Marty Scurll. Maybe you guys see something different. His bird wing taunts were really annoying. Maybe he’ll stop goofing off while he’s in Mexico.
