Demon used a chain (that Mascara 2000 had introduced) to KO Mesias and get the win.

This looks like another strong turnout for a Naucalpan show.

Puebla tonight is main-evented with a rematch of last week’s atomicos. Cuatrero, Forastero & Sanson team up with Mistico against Euforia, Gran Guerrero, Ultimo Guerrero, and Soberano. Last week had the Guerreros as the rudos and a set up to a Mistico/UG match. That may be the match next week.

Peste Negra (Negro Casas, Cavernario & Felino version) face Atlantis, Stuka, and Valiente in the semi-main. The Panthers team up with Stigma against Hechicero, Tiger and Mascara 2000. Arkalis, Millenium and Tiger Rojo face Malayo, Toro Bill Jr., and Hijo del Signo in an unpromising segunda, and Asturiano, King Jaguar & Meyer face Centella Roja, Rey Apocalipsis and Guerrero Espacial in the opener. The show streams at 9 pm.

El Planchitas writes that LAX’s Ortiz was almost arrested in Mexico City during the Impact tapings for public drinking, though it reads more he was standing outside looking at a monument where a beer he had purchased from Oxxo nearby. It also reads like the police very much overreacted. Konnan tried to defuse the situation and Impact officials eventually were able to get it calmed down.

Kalisto and Gran Metalik were both teasing leaving WWE on Twitter today. I think, if you are a fan of Mascara Dorada, you’re best off seeing this as a negotiation tactic at a time where WWE is giving people lots of money to do very little. (Most people who are actually leaving just say they’re leaving if they say anything at all.) There’s been solid belief for months that the WWE 205 Live show will not survive the upcoming changes to WWE’s TV lineup and that may have informed the decision to say something today but don’t expect anything to be happening with those guys soon. My impression for quite a while is not to get my hopes up for a Mascara Dorada return because Gran Metalik will eventually be signing a new deal with WWE. I think that’s still likely to occur and I figure it’ll be the same with Kalisto.

Segunda Caida watches La Mascara vs Maximo.

San Diego Union Tribune has a story on ExpoLucha.

Lineups

CMLL (FRI) 08/23/2019 Arena México
1) Sonic & Súper Astro Jr. vs Espíritu Negro & Hijo del Signo
2) Átomo, Gallito, Microman vs Chamuel, Guapito, Perico Zakarías
3) Audaz, Flyer, Titán vs Cuatrero, Forastero, Templario
4) Volador Jr. vs Sansón [lightning]
5) Ángel de Oro, Místico, Niebla Roja vs Euforia, Gran Guerrero, Terrible
6) Cavernario, Diamante Azul, Último Guerrero vs Ciber the Main Man, The Chris, Valiente [Relevos Increíbles]

The Chris is back, for all of you who were asking what happened to The Chris. (Maybe Cavernario/UG vs Ciber/Chris is a better option than the singles match?)

Matches 3-5 all look good. It’s amusing that Volador had a month-long feud with the third most important NGD member and immediately follows with a lightning match against probably the most important.

Micros is the announced follow up. Do they do the Microman/Chamuel match on Gran Prix day?

No one from the foreigner team in early, even the usual foreigners are all off this show. Most every Espiritu Negro booking is probably a Sangre Azteca one.

Mexa Wrestling (SAT) 08/24/2019 Arena San Juan Pantitlan, Ciudad Nezahualcóyotl, Estado de México
1) Lilith Dark, Príncipe Aéreo, Torito Negro vs Cobre, Lady Cat, Puma de Oro and Aerotiger, Hahastary, Zika
2) Apolo Estrada Jr. vs Toro Negro
3) Decnnis, Hijo De Zumbio, Scorpió Jr. vs Dante, Fly Warrior, Zumbi
4) Diva Salvaje © vs DemasiadoChica Ye-YeDulce Kanela? [EXOTICO CHAMP]
5) Fresero Jr. & The Tiger vs Demonio Infernal & Eterno
6) Dragón Bane & Hijo de Canis Lupus vs Lunatik Fly & Lunatik Xtreme and Fulgor I & Fulgor II
7) El Diablo vs Flamita

Quick turnaround for another Mexa Wrestling show. Tickets seem cheaper than usual (250 MXP.) Maybe the semi-main is the best match.
