Toyrumon (SAT) 05/26/2018 Arena México [+LuchaTV, Black Terry Jr. (Flickr), The Gladiatores]
1) Blood Eagle, Laberinto, Puma Negro TLDRAW Fidel Bravo, Jay Baker, Koto Hiro
10 minute draw
2) Mima Shimoda & Zatara TLDRAW Diva Salvaje & Stephanie Vaquer
time limit unclear
3) Negro Navarro b Solar I
4) Argos b Sangre Azteca, Pólvora, Magnus, Ulises Jr., Gallo Frances, Karonte Jr., Tiburón, Movado, Misterioso, Nitro, Ultimo Panda [Dragon Scramble]
listed as a 20 man match (so possibly 7 short on names)
5) Hijo del Signo b Piel Roja © [DF MIDDLE]
Piel Roja was billed as champion though Hijo del Signo was champion last time this belt was mentioned (2012!). Signo won the belt, then threw it out of the ring and left without it.
6) Douki, Jun Akiyama, Musashi, Zeus b Jungle Boy, La Migra, Vapor, Vinne Massaro
7) Euforia, Rey Bucanero, Último Guerrero b Atlantis, Diamante, Volador Jr.
UG snuck in a foul on Volador. Diamante’s first match in Arena Mexico since leaving CMLL about five years ago. He worked as a rudo during the match.
8) Sam Adonis & Último Dragón b El Patán & Súper Ciudadano [relevos suicidas]
Sides were set up on the previous Toryumon show. Adonis won via foul on Super Ciudadano, also leaving him vulnerable for the final.
9) Súper Ciudadano b El Patán [mask]
Sponsored character Super Ciudadano beat long time rival El Patan, who unmasked as Johnny Villalobos (20 years a wrestler.) Sam Adonis got a referee shirt during the match and tried to help Patan, to no avail.
Ultimo Dragon never put out a lineup for this show but it was basically the same as ever. Super Ciudadano is Sangre Imperial on other days. It’s a pretty good bet this will be his only main event singles apuesta match in Arena Mexico. It’s good to be named after the biggest sponsor.
The sixth match includes people from Pro Wrestling Revolution, All Japan Wrestling, Michinoku Pro Wrestling and Douki (Douki Pro Wrestling?.) I have no idea what the deal with Signo is. Perhaps he accurately realized the value of that championship belt. Amusing that the show started with two straight draws and Solar/Navarro didn’t go to one.
Ultimo Dragon’s show will air on SamuraiTV on June 10th, though there’s obviously edited handhelds already.
CMLL (SAT) 05/26/2018 Arena Coliseo [CMLL]
1) Camorra & Cholo b Bengala & Sensei
2) Leono, Príncipe Diamante, Súper Astro Jr. b Metálico, Príncipe Odín Jr., Yago
Super Astro Jr. replaced Sangre Imperial (who was otherwise occupied winning a mask in the main event of Arena Mexico under his Super Ciudadano gimmick)
3) Chamuel, Mije, Perico Zakarías b Ángel, Gallito, Microman
Chamuel pulled Microman’s mask to set up the win.
4) Virus b Audaz [lightning]
5) Blue Panther, Guerrero Maya Jr., Titán b Dragón Rojo Jr., Templario, Universo 2000 Jr.
Maya beat Dragon, Dragon wants a rematch
6) Diamante Azul, Kráneo, Stuka Jr. b Hechicero, Máscara Año 2000, Negro Casas
The rudo micros are far more competitive in Arena Coliseo than the rest of the circuit. It’s a mystery Post match interviews include Starman (says he’s been out with a knee injury) and Virus (Audaz has to get better to beat him),
CMLL (SUN) 05/27/2018 Arena México [CMLL]
1) Mercurio, Pequeño Olímpico, Pequeño Violencia b Angelito, Shockercito, Último Dragóncito
Mercurio replaced Pierrothito. Rudos took 2/3.
2) Magnus, Star Jr., Stigma b Arkángel de la Muerte, Hijo del Signo, Inquisidor
tecnicos took 2/3.
3) Drone, Fuego, Rey Cometa b Okumura, Templario, Universo 2000 Jr.
tecnicos took 2/3.
4) Terrible © b Diamante Azul [MEX HEAVY]
Terrible took 2/3 to retain. 2nd defense, 2nd against Azul
5) Atlantis, Mistico, Volador Jr. b Euforia, Gran Guerrero, Último Guerrero
tecnicos took 2/3
Post match interviews: Stigma (hyping the upcoming Arena Puebla anniversary shows, no date mentioned) and Terrible (happy to win again). It would make sense for Terrible to keep winning when he’s in the main event feud but CMLL doesn’t always have to make sense.
Magico (mask) and Mr. Apolo (hair) agreed to a mask vs hair match in Guadalajara. No date announced. Next week would be normal, but they’ve also set up a Saidco/Joker no stip singles match and said that was happening next week.
On Saturday in Arena Xalapa, Optimus took Golden Jet’s mask. Golden Jet is Carlos Alvarado, 17, 2 years a wrestler.
Lost in Lucha writes about La Parka vs Muerte Cibernetica.
DTU (TUE) 06/12/2018 Arena Aficion
1) Billy Gamer vs Devitt Rodríguez, Hermes, Drolux
2) Jitsu vs Moria, Tiburón, Camuflaje
3) Hormiga, Kevin, Pesadilla vs Diva Salvaje, El Exótico, Jessy Ventura
4) Aero Boy © vs Cuervo (Puerto Rico) [GALLI CHAMP]
5) Joey Janela vs Draztick Boy vs Jimmy
6) G-Raver & Shlak vs Mr. Cóndor & Último Gladiador and Crazy King & Paranoiko
The Arena Aficion shows DTU tend to turn up more, so maybe we’ll see a GALLI (Chicago) title match in Hidalgo between a guy from Tulancingo and a guy from Puerto Rico.
