Wednesday’s CMLL Informa saw the official contract signing for the Metalico versus Virus match where both men’s hair and career are on the line. This has been a feud on the last Sunday shows. The surprise is the match itself has been added to the May 31 Juicio Final card. It’ll be third on the card, and a one fall match. I can not recall a CMLL show with three different hair matches. One actual big apuesta match would be a bigger draw than three that haven’t seemed that important, but I’m sure CMLL internally believes they’re going all out on this show.
No one’s said when/where this is airing. I think everyone expects it to air on Marca like usual but CMLL has done weird things with the last two major shows. I’m not sure a lot of people were curious about this show with just the stuff that had been announced before. Virus and Metalico might create more interest. The one consistent part is CMLL’s always put it on their YouTube channel by Saturday morning. Hopefully, CMLL will make the Friday night part clear in advance. It’d be good if live is an option, but “not live” is bearable if someone just says something about ahead of time. If there’s no stream, CMLL should be shouting “no stream Friday, please come to Arena Mexico” in between every fall like all the other plugs starting with tomorrow’s show
Mascara 2000 replaces Gran Guerrero on Saturday’s Arena Coliseo show. Gran Guerrero & Euforia hyped their tag title challenge at Juicio Final in an interview. The last time they won a 2v2 tag title match in CMLL was 2014, which does not come up in the interview.
AAA’s officially put up the lineups for Queretaro, Monterrey, and Cancun. They have not put up the Merida Verano de Escandalo lineup, which was revealed locally at the same time as the Cancun one. Instead of editing the poster to not list the Young Bucks as champions, AAA’s decided to just pocket it until after Double or Nothing. Jack Evans is still listed as Queretaro.
Pierrothito talks about getting into wrestling, which seems a lot like getting into anything but wrestling for a while before ending up there.
Myzteziz Jr. wants to be a AAA triple champion. His plan is to go after Drago first, and then challenge Fenix.

3) Súper Astro Jr. vs Hijo del Signo [lightning]
4) Atlantis Jr., Stuka Jr., Valiente vs Felino, Hijo del Villano III, Vangellys
5) Carístico, Místico, Soberano Jr. vs Hechicero, Negro Casas, Shocker
6) La Bestia Del Ring, Rush, Terrible vs Cuatrero, Forastero, Sansón
The good Sunday Arena Mexico people don’t get Metalico/Virus but do get, uh, Super Astro vs Hijo del Signo. NGD vs Ingobernables is not one done a lot.
CMLL (SUN) 05/26/2019 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Mandala vs Jabalí
2) Amperaje & Cosmos vs Destello & Relámpago Azul
3) Black Sugar, Fantástico, Tigre Blanco vs Mr. Trueno, Paymon, Rey Trueno
4) Baron Blanco Jr., El Rielero, Vaquero Jr. vs Capitán Cobra, Maléfico, Príncipe Kisho
5) Crixus, Magnum, Metatrón, Paladin vs Difunto, Furia Roja, Gran Kenut, León Blanco
Again, I usually skip posting Sunday’s Guadalajara lineup here because they are mostly names no one knows. This week, it is two names I don’t even know – no one named Paladin or Crixus has wrestled here prior, and they’re in the main event. It is truly a mystery. (In general, they seemed headed to a cage match here soon.)
CMLL (MON) 05/27/2019 Arena Puebla
1) Astro, Centella Roja, Meyer vs Espíritu Maligno, Guerrero Espacial, Sombra Diabólika
2) King Jaguar, Star Jr., Tigre Rojo Jr. vs El Perverso, Fuerza Chicana, Nitro
3) El Audaz, Esfinge, Tritón vs Ephesto, Luciferno, Tiger
4) Carístico, Soberano Jr., Valiente vs Cavernario, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas
5) Mephisto & Volador Jr. vs Niebla Roja & Terrible [Torneo Increible de Parejas, final]
Mephisto & Volador vs Niebla Roja & Terrible will be solid. 3rd and 4th matches are in the same range.
CMLL (TUE) 05/28/2019 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) El Divino, Fugaz, Mr. Samurai vs Carlo Roggi, Guerrero de la Muerte, Mr. Apolo

3) Esfinge, Stigma, Tritón vs Disturbio, Hijo del Villano III, Olímpico
4) Diamante Azul, Niebla Roja, Valiente vs Rey Bucanero, Shocker, Terrible
5) Euforia, Gran Guerrero, Último Guerrero © vs Carístico, Soberano Jr., Stuka Jr. [CMLL TRIOS]
Soberano might become trios champion because Volador was off one week! Soberano probably isn’t becoming trios champion.
Mexa Wrestling (SAT) 06/08/2019 Arena San Juan Pantitlan, Ciudad Nezahualcóyotl, Estado de México
1) Calibus vs Príncipe Aéreo, Sobredosis, Black Dragón, Auzter, Sherekan, Baby Star, Torito Negro
2) Centurion, Dinamic Black, Fulgor I, Imposible, Mr. Leo vs Fly Warrior, Murciélago Plateado, Poseidón, The Tiger, Último Maldito
3) Negro Navarro & Solar I vs El Mimo & Toro Negro
4) Jack Evans vs Aramis, Arkángel Divino, Pumita
5) El Diablo & Lady Flammer vs Hija De Gatubela & Metaleón
6) Rey Horus vs Steve Pain
7) Golden Boy & Símbolo vs Trauma I & Trauma II
This show is called God Level and is quite a random collection of matches. I think it’ll be good but it doesn’t particularly feel like a Mexa Wrestling show. The fourth match is subtitled “Purity of Strong Style” and I can not imagine why.
