There are promos from NGD and Super Astro Jr. I half paid attention the lightning match, but not enough to see Super Astro Jr. take a header until later on. It seems like it had good spots but didn’t totally hold up as a match. Those two are two guys who are probably better facing rudos at this point. There sure were a lot of rudo wins this show.
CMLL (TUE) 06/25/2019 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [CMLL]
1) Explosivo, Magnum, Vaquero Jr. b Gran Kenut, Paymon, Ráfaga
Magnum replaced Star Black (moved up). Tecnicos took 1/3.
2) Magia Blanca, Oro Jr., Príncipe Diamante b Difunto, Furia Roja, Guerrero de la Muerte
Tecnicos took 2/3.
3) Ephesto, Luciferno, Mephisto b Esfinge, Titán, Tritón
rudos took 1/3.
4) Ángel de Oro, Kráneo, Star Black b La Bestia Del Ring, Rush, Terrible
Star Black replaced Niebla Roja (moved up.) Rudos took 1/3.
5) Carístico, Dragón Lee, Niebla Roja DQ Euforia, Gran Guerrero, Último Guerrero
Niebla Roja replaced Volador Jr. Tecnicos took 2/3, the last when Gran Guerrero fouled Niebla Roja.
I assume Volador skipped the show to avoid being drawn into yet another singles match. He just wants to wrestle and watch his super hero movies and those rudos just won’t leave him alone.
CMLL announced Sharlie Rockstar (Charly Manson) would be making his CMLL return Friday. He takes the place of Gilbert el Boricua in the semi-final. CMLL’s story is Gilbert will continue to team with the CL4N are in atomicos matches. There’s actually space here for an atomicos – Los Guerreros are four people deep too – but CMLL very rarely schedules 4v4 matches.
That was the only upcoming match Gilbert had in CMLL. As El Mesias, he’s booked on the debut of the Nacion Lucha Libre card. These two things are probably related. The AAA wrestlers pulled off the NLL card because that TV deal conflicted with the AAA TV deal. There’s the same conflict between CMLL and NLL’s TV deal, only Mesias seems to have picked Nacion over CMLL. That seems like a funny thought but it may actually make worth for him. The AAA guys were people who are getting pushed or at least have hope of it. Gilbert has been in and out of CMLL the last couple of years and they don’t seem to have much interest in doing anything with him. Maybe Nacion will do something with Mesias, or maybe it falls apart and the door will be open for him to return to CMLL. CMLL mentioning him in the card change suggests the door is still open.
Dulce Gardenia talked to Reporte Indigo and revealed he was supposed to be one of Silver King’s last opponents in the UK. Gardenia’s story is he was going to be the luchador listed as “Charro del Mysterio” on the shows. That wrestler was intended to have a singles match with Ramses (Silver King) on the early show and then return later. Gardenia says both he and Silver King missed their original flight because of issues with their travel papers. Silver King told Gardenia the next day that the promoter had bought an additional flight for him but not for Gardenia and gave him a speech saying better days would come for him. Gardenia is a single father of three kids, though it sounds like those children are living back in Torreon right now.
Rush beat LA Park in their cage match in Tijuana this past weekend. Well, Rush escaped when four people ran in and one person pulled LA Park’s mask off, but those are just details. The building looks decently full, which is better than I thought would be for the debut show of a new promotion in a busy market.
I can’t remember if I wrote Vaquero Jr. took Malefico’s hair at Sunday’s Arena Coliseo Guadalajara show. The tecnico winning was the expected outcome.
Chamaco Valaguez, as head of the Cuernavaca lucha libre commission, met with El Fantasma, as the head of the Mexico City lucha libre commission, about ways they can work together.
