Might not have the match order right but it’s pretty close. Viruz/Arez & Casas/Aramis sounded like they were the best matches on the night.  CaraLucha’s Virus was there to set up a co-promoted Memes/Cara show on April 22nd. That’s in addition to the Memes/LLB feud.

Warriors fall on 3rd defense after Warrior Jr. fouled both Villanos. Villanos are 32nd champions. Villano and Black Warrior (Sr) agreed to a singles math.

All sorts of gang warfare in the semimain. Not much of a way to change the titles in the main event.

Arena Puebla today has Volador Jr. vs Cavernario. This feud hasn’t been going well

  • 02/19: Cavernario/Volador vs Ultimo Guerrero/Valiente has Volador fracturing his nose and the match ending with UG fouling Volador for no reason
  • 02/26: Cavernario/UG vs Volador/Valiente ends with a faked foul DQ
  • 03/05: Cavernario vs Volador goes two quick falls, ends with a faked ref attack DQ

This should be better. It might not be better. It just should be better.

The semimain continues Kraneo’s strange feud with the foreigners, with Sam Adonis in instead of Johnny Idol this time. Kraneo teams with Euforia & Mr. Niebla and Adonis with La Bestia del Ring & Rush. Cuatrero, Sanson and Polvora take on Stuka, Titan & Valiente in the fourth match, which will be the last time you see Cuatrero before his mask match unless you live in Guadalajara. Audaz & Virus are matched up in the tercera with Templario along. Kaho & Sugehit face Amapola & Comadnante. Asturiano is back in the opener.

This show will be in Arena Puebla. This is the first show of spring daylight savings time. If your clocks changed on Sunday, then this show starts an hour later. In the US, it starts at 10pm CT with that main event airing around midnight.

Hijo del Octagon appears to have confirmed the story that the was kicked off his Azteca reality show (Exatlon) due to Azteca being concerned about a legal threat from AAA over the name. On the show, the story was Hijo del Octagon suffered an injury which left him unable to continue.

Dr. Wagner thinks Dorian Roldan should bring in LA Park and Wagner will fight him for Dorian. LA Park just wants to face Dorian. No one’s really talking about Psycho, Fantasma or the four way match.

Penta takes on Nick Gage on 04/06 in New Orleans.

Caristico says he’s recovered from his injury and will be back in CMLL rings soon.

  1. Why is Matt Taven a technico? He has feuded with UG. He’s a foreigner to Mexicans. He was part of that Mexico vs the World fued. Even in ROH, he’s been feuding with Cody. What did I miss?

  2. @Gary – FWIW, he is opposite Gran Guerrero, which is consistent with him feuding with Ultimo. Maybe Taven will get a singles match w/ Gran before he leaves, or in ROH?
