CMLL (SAT) 06/23/2018 Arena Coliseo [CMLL]
1) Shockercito & Último Dragóncito b Pequeño Olímpico & Pequeño Violencia
tecnicos took 2/3
2) Magnus, Príncipe Diamante, Starman b Cholo, Grako, Inquisidor
tecnicos took 2/3
3) Dragón Rojo Jr., Pólvora, Virus b Drone, Guerrero Maya Jr., Rey Cometa
rudos took 1/3.
4) Ángel de Oro, Niebla Roja, Soberano Jr. b Cuatrero, Forastero, Sansón
tecnicos took 2/3, then issues a challenge for the national trios titles.
5) Ephesto, Luciferno, Mephisto b Dragón Lee, Stuka Jr., Volador Jr.
Volador & Stuka replaced Mistico & Valiente. Straight falls, Luciferno beating Dragon Lee in both. Luciferno issued a challenge for Dragon Lee’s lightweight championship.

Post-match promos: Ultimo Dragoncito (talks about CMLL classes), Starman (sad he and Arkangel never got to do their mask match), Soberano Jr. (ready for his title match tomorrow) and Luciferno (really serious about challenging Dragon Lee).

Luciferno is an unlikely lightweight. He’s a likely Dragon Lee opponent. For reasons only truly understood by CMLL, Dragon Lee and Luciferno have met in the first round of the 2015 Universal tournament, the first round of the 2016 Universal tournament, and the 2017 Universal tournament. The results have been consistent, Luciferno loses every time. They can not repeat this match in 2018 at this point, so I guess this is another way to do it.

1) Divino Boy, Kalibus, Magnético b Hijo Del Dr. Pólux Jr., Maremoto, Murciélago Plateado
2) Demasiado & Musashi b Ciclón & Dragosth and Astro Infernal & Lucifier

4) Zeuxis b Lady ApacheQuetzalCinthia MorenoRossy MorenoMima ShimodaEstrellita [G21 WOMEN]
5) Ricky Marvin & Silver King b Steve Pain & Terremoto and Samoano & Tonga
Terremoto replaced Hijo de Dos Caras. Tonga may be “Huma”, who was originally listed in that spot.
6) Imposible & Laredo Kid b Demonio Infernal & Golden Magic and Ángeluz Fly & Diamante
7) Baronessa b Muñeca De Plata [maskMÁSCARA VS MÁSCARA MUÑECA DE PLATA VS BARONESSA (posted by Tortas Súper Astro y Sin Aflojar Videoblog)
La Mascara ran in to help his cousin, but Baronessa still surprised her with a cradle. Muneca de Plata is Monserrat Alvarado Nava, 29 years old, 13 years a wrestler, originally from Guadalajara.
8) Hijo de LA Park & LA Park DQ La Máscara & Xtreme Tiger
The LA Parks were unmasked.

Seemed like the building was around half full for a show largely built around the women’s mask match. There was some controversy about the match and I’m not sure why. People may have been led to believe the result was going the other way but I’m not sure why it mattered so much – neither are big names by indie standards and the match is really only notable because of Muneca is an Alavardo. I guess I don’t really need to understand why as much as note there was unhappiness in how it went down.

CMLL (SUN) 06/24/2018 Arena México [CMLL]
1) Retro & Sangre Imperial b Camorra & Príncipe Odín Jr.
tecnicos took 2/3
2) Cancerbero, El Coyote, Nitro b Arkalis, Magnus, Súper Astro Jr.
Rudos took 1/3
3) Misterioso Jr., Puma, Sagrado b Audaz, Pegasso, Tritón
Rudos took 1/3
4) Dalys © b Princesa Sugehit [CMLL WOMEN]
Dalys took 2/3 to keep her title. 16th defense. Sugehit’s 2nd chance.
5) Rey Bucanero, Shocker, Terrible b Flyer, Kráneo, Titán
Rudos took 1/3. Terrible was injured after a Kraneo senton landed on his head.
6) Euforia, Gran Guerrero, Último Guerrero b Mistico, Valiente, Volador Jr.
Rudos took 1/3, then asked for a title shot.

Terrible suffered a concussion from that senton, according to Dr. Zavaleta. He’s not listed on any cards next week as of yet, so hopefully he’s taking some time off Post-match promos: Dalys (wants new challengers), Shocker & Rey Bucanero (looking for a third member of their Senores Bien group), Los Guerreros Laguneros (want a trios title shot), and the Sky Team (ready to give one.) Even the champion Dalys is aware they need different match-ups in that division, but I’m not sure what the solution is going to be. Or if there is one.

CMLL (SUN) 06/24/2018 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) El Alteño b Frenético
Alteno, replacing Eclipse, took 1/3.
2) Cosmos & Johnny Dinamo DQ Destructor & Quca
Quca unmasked Cosmos for the DQ. Straight falls.
3) Fugaz, Neutrón, Reycko b Gran Kenut, León Blanco, Linterna
Linterna’s partners betrayed him. Tecnicos took 1/3.
4) Bobby Black, Carlo Roggi, El Chakal, Mr. Apolo b Exterminador, Príncipe Kisho, Terremoto King Jr., Thunder Boy
Team Roggi took 1/3
5) Joker b Sádico [hair]
Joker took 2/3 to take his ex-partner’s hair.

Joker starts his tecnico career with a big win, which probably should be inspiring for Linterna.

I’m not going to even link to the latest round of “Alberto says he’s retiring in 2 years” article, but I am letting you know they exist.

Lucha Underground posted a Jeremiah Crane promo for 3 Way to the Grave. He makes it clear two people are getting put in a casket at the end.
