The only team with two people who are real rivals made it to the final. Niebla Roja, Terrible, Mephisto and Volador are all announced as appearing on Informa to hype this final, so maybe CMLL will give some idea on what exactly is going on with Volador at the moment.
While Niebla Roja & Terrible are teaming on Mondays, it looks like they’re setting up a singles match on Tuesdays. Terrible defeated Niebla Roja in last week’s main event via foul. They rematch, Los Ingobernables against Roja, Angel de Oro, and Atlantis, again in the main event tonight.
The rest of the card is the usual Tuesday randomness. Flyer, Rey Cometa and Kraneo were picked out of the hat to face Hechicero, Mephisto and Rey Bucanero. Audaz, Guerrero Maya Jr. and Blue Panther, all strangely ranked lower than Flyer, face Polvora, Tiger and Universo 2000. Star Jr. versus Sagrado is the lightning match. Halcon Suriano Jr. makes an appearance in the segunda. The show airs at 7:30 pm on CMLL’s YouTube channel.
Guadalajara has Caristico, Stuka, and Volador versus Los Guerreros as the listed main event, but it seems likely Volador won’t be there. They have Mistico, Soberano Jr., and Valiente versus Matt Taven, Shocker, and Vangellys and there’s no chance Taven is going to be there.
Fuerza Guerrera says he had and Silver King had a conversation about death earlier this year when both were in Japan for the El Santo led shows there. Silver King told Guerrera that he’d rather die in the ring rather than an illness or injury that caused him to be confined to a bed.
+LuchaTV has a short conversation with Juventud Guerrera. He’s asked about his match on the Martinez show and starts talking about Silver King instead. He’s upset with people on YouTube who aren’t luchadors giving their opinions, complains about people promising changes after Perro Aguayo Jr.’s death and those changes only lasting a couple of weeks, and hopes Silver King’s death prompts real change. Guerrera seems like a guy who could really use a break from wrestling for a while.
Blue Demon Jr. is part of a Burger King Mexico marketing campaign for some new burgers. They’re building to an event on May 29th in Mexico City. Blue Demon Jr. is more effective as a marketing device than a luchador, but that’s also why he’s in headlining TripleMania.
Marisela Pena is included in Forbes list of the 100 most important Mexican businesswomen.
RIOT’s La Rina En El Cerro De La Silla shows have been moved to August 23rd & 24th. It’ll include a 12 luchador tournament over the two shows.
Lucha Memes says their Chairo 13 show will take place June 30th. Comedian Diente de Oro will be a special announcer.
