Rush used the ropes.

Disturbio & Virus are a bit of a surprise. Maybe this is a reward for Disturbio doing well in Japan, maybe this leads to Virus winning the tag titles to set up matches with Audaz, maybe it’s just them being good opponents for Esfinge & Triton.

CMLL (SUN) 03/04/2018 Arena México [CMLL, Ovaciones]
1) Magia Blanca & Robin b Grako & Inquisidor
Tecnicos took 2/3
2) Cancerbero, Raziel, Sangre Azteca b Astral, Oro Jr., Star Jr.
Rudos took 2/3.
3) Audaz, Guerrero Maya Jr., Titán b Kawato San, Okumura, Universo 2000 Jr.
tecnicos took 1/3.
4) Cuatrero, Forastero, Sansón DQ Ángel de Oro, Niebla Roja, Stuka Jr.
Rudos took 1/3. Cuatrero destroyed Angel de Oro’s mask, causing him to leave the match in the second fall. Angel de Oro returned with a new mask, but Cuatrero tossed his own mask to Angel de Oro to draw the DQ.
5) Dragón Lee b Cavernario
Dragon Lee toko 2/3. Said to be a great match.
6) La Bestia Del Ring, Rush, Terrible DQ Diamante Azul, Último Guerrero, Volador Jr. [Relevos Increíbles]
straight falls DQ; Los Ingobernables DQed in the first for excessive violence, and the second for a Rush foul on Volador. UG asked for a rematch next week. CMLL results list Pierroth as La Bestia del Ring (so he finally got his name change.)

It took Pierroth one full year to get his name change to La Bestia del Ring. Even the Munoz can’t get things done quick in CMLL.

CMLL briefly listed a live stream for this show. My guess is this show was being recorded and someone thought CMLL would stream it. They did not, because reasons. Meanwhile, Lucha Azteca returned to showing Friday matches in the US.

CMLL’s post show interviews includes words from NGD, Dragon Lee and Los Ingobernables.

CMLL (SUN) 03/04/2018 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [CMLL]
1) Amperaje b Paymon
2) Capitán Cobra & Principe Daniel b El Gitano & Mr. Apolo
tecnicos took 1/3. Gitano’s first match here in 9 months (which was also a one match stint.)
3) Johnny Dinamo & Tigre Blanco b Linterna & Mr. Brisa
tencicos took 2/3
4) El Alteño, Explosivo, Neutrón b Exterminador, Joker, Mr. Trueno
tecnicos took 2/2, setting up an Explosivo/Mr. Trueno mask match next week.
5) Frezzer, Furia Roja, Guerrero de la Muerte b Mágico, Magnum, Rielero
Rudos took 1/3. Rielero replaced Metatron. Maya got in a foul on Rielero to win.

notable because the results are very clear on the mask match happening next Sunday.

CMLL on ROH’s Manhattan Mayhem:

  • Punishment Martinez beat Soberano Jr.
  • Volador Jr. & Dalton Castle beat Ultimo Guerrero & Jay Lethal

The tag match was slow at first, but got pretty good by the end and turned out to be one of the better matches on the show.

Martinez/Soberano was a borderline disaster. Both guys seemed at fault and the circumstances were bad. It was scheduled to be the opener, and turned out to be later in the show because the CMLL guys didn’t arrive until late due to travel issues. (The Friday Arena Mexico, Saturday New York, Sunday back to Mexico schedule did no one any favors.) The concept seemed to be Punishment Martinez impressively shrugging off some of Soberano’s big shots, but some of those big shots just totally missed. It was unclear if Soberano was just missing or if Punishment Martinez wasn’t in the right place. Soberano did get to do impressive dives late but the crowd had already turned on the match.

Caristico must’ve healed quick, because he was back wrestling Sunday night after being too hurt to wrestle Friday. It seems like there’s another story here. The timing of the ELITE deal falling apart may be a connection. Caristico is currently not listed on an upcoming CMLL show, but we only have lineups for a few days.

On a show in Chetumal, Mephisto & Okumura lost to local wrestlers Hades & Guerrero Galactico. Hades pinned Mephisto, and Mephisto agreed to come back in April (sometime around Kid’s Day) and put up his title in a title match for a rare indie title defense.

Running 03/16 Homenaje a Dos Leyendas lineup

That last four were added today. I’d figure Audaz & Templario in the opener, the women in the second, and Matt Taven in the top trios match.

Spots are filling up quick. WWE has a ludicrous storyline about John Cena being in danger of not having a spot on WrestleMania. WWE will always add a match to find a spot for John Cena. AAA seemed like they added a match to find a spot for Faby & Shani last night. CMLL does not add matches; the people who lose in the tag team block on Friday might find themselves on the outside on of CMLL’s second biggest show of the year.

Tonight’s CMLL in Puebla show has the second in three days of Cavernario. He took the loss to Dragon Lee on Sunday, and now has to find a way to upset Volador. These two had an excellent match last year. I’m reluctant to expect too much from them tonight; this will be Volador’s sixth match in four days with a long trip back and forth from New York in between, and Cavernario knows he’s got a tough task with Atlantis tomorrow. Half effort might still be pretty good, but it might be all we get.

The rest of top half of the Puebla card has some releovos incredibles matches. Mistico, Pierroth (at least on the poster) and Rush of the Munoz family take on Diamante Azul, Euforia, and Mr. Niebla in one. Hechicero, Kraneo, and Stuka face Johnny Idol, Sam Adonis and Titan in another, following up the Kraneo versus Johnny Idol feud. Idol & Adonis should accuse Kraneo being an illegal alien. Audaz is back in action, teaming with Stigma and Triton against Puma, Tiger and Malayo. The second match is Rey Samuray & Tgire Rojo Jr. vs Akuma & Espanto Jr., which is one Espanto Jr. from being interesting. The opener 2v2 match is about four people from being interesting.

The show will air at 9pm. This is the last Puebla show to start at 9pm CT in the US for a month. Daylight Savings Time arrives this weekend and everyone is going to be confused.


CMLL (SAT) 03/10/2018 Arena Coliseo
1) Bengala & Sensei vs Cholo & Grako
2) Acero, Fantasy, Shockercito vs Pequeño Olímpico, Pequeño Universo 2000, Pequeño Violencia
3) Flyer, Pegasso, Star Jr. vs Misterioso Jr., Sagrado, Universo 2000 Jr.
4) Blue Panther Jr., Rey Cometa, The Panther vs Okumura, Olímpico, Pólvora
5) Esfinge & Tritón vs Disturbio & Virus [Arena Coliseo TAG, final]
6) Atlantis, Dragón Lee, Niebla Roja vs Cavernario, Felino, Negro Casas

I think Esfinge & Triton are slight favorites because they have matching outfits. This is what matters.

Useless facts: when CMLL brought these titles back in 2000, the Stone Brothers (Alan & Chris) won them in a tournament final. The team they defeated was Fugaz & Virus. Virus has since challenged with Polvora, Arkangel, and Hechicero and has never won.

One thought to “CMLL weekend resuts: Disturbio & Virus advance to final, Dragon Lee defeats Cavernario, Pierroth no more”

  1. when i lived in chetumal several years ago i saw the more cmll titel beeing defended there or in arena el olimpico chetumal ,strangly there was a time where okumura was always there ..never saw him as a real draw ..but chetumals promotors love him i dont know why.when i remember correct once he lost to some Barbaro or so wrestling a title matche and not giving away the titel..saying he would have a title match next time , after already losing ….but its mexico..even more chetumal ;) always very strange shows in chetumal a very small city with in my time like 4 arenas(arena vidal,arena el olimpico (the dirtiest one ;),arena croc,salon leones and free shows everywhere on the mercado,at the bulverad right in front of the ocean, some field in calderitas,there was another arena ..cant remember the name, and these strange supershows on the basball field where mistico/caristico always was a huge draw most of them where unanouched ..or they just wrote names of wrestlers on a bedsheet and hung it on the main plaza or pianted the names on the walll in front of the arena you had to go and see who is anouced to know!!:.
