Mistico out for four months, Azul keeps title, ChilangaMask show off

CMLL (MON) 05/12/2014 Arena Puebla [Periodico Enfoque, Periodico Enfoque (fotos)]
1) Centauro de Fuego, Cholo, Inquisidor b Black Tiger, Milenium, Tigre Rojo
Centauro’s first match here since September.
2) Demus 3:16, Mercurio, Pequeño Warrior b Asturiano, Meyer, Tigre Rojo Jr.
Mini Rudos took 1/3.
3) Blue Panther, Stuka Jr., Tritón b Cavernario, Ephesto, Misterioso Jr.
Tecnicos took 2/3.
4) La Máscara, Super Porky, Volador Jr. DQ Gran Guerrero, Niebla Roja, Último Guerrero
Tecnicos took 1/3. Mascara didn’t get along with his teammates, but Ultimo Guerrero gifted the opposition a win by fouling Volador.
5) Diamante Azul b Ripper [NWA LH]
Diamante Azul stayed champion by taking falls 1/3, the last with a German suplex. 3rd defense.

Mistico will be out for four months after his motorcycle accident. CMLL sent out a press release last night explaining the circumstances of his accident reported ten days ago. Mistico was riding his motorcycle to Arena Mexico when he was hit by a white car. His clothes were stuck underneath the car in the accident and the car driver dragged him four meters while trying to escape. Other motorist stopped the driver. The accident took place at 8:20, and Mistico was laying in the street for a half hour before an ambulance picked him up and didn’t get to the hospital until 10. His right tibia and fibula was broken and a rod has been places in his leg from his knee to his ankle. He also broke his right thumb.

Mistico says the doctors originally told him he would be out nine months, but have since lowered it to four months. Fourth months would put Mistico’s return around the anniversary show. Hopefully that’s a coincidence and Mistico takes all the time he needs to recover. He says he’s following all the doctors instructions so he can get back to the ring.

Tonight’s CMLL show has the Guerreros versus Atlantida, which should set up a trios title match next week. The En Busca de un Idolo matches are Dragon Lee vs Super Halcon Jr. and Cavernario vs Guererro Negro Jr., where Dragon Lee & Guerrero Negro both need wins if they’re going to stay within reach of fourth. The undercard also includes Metalico & Oro Jr. trying to get along in the semimain.

The May ChilangaMask is canceled after trouble between the promotion and CMLL (and Arkangel de la Muerte.) There’s a video explaining the situation here.

Dave the Clown, previously seen jumping the rail and hugging Psycho Clown on the last Gimnasio Juan de la Barrera, posted a match supporting Psycho Clown against Texano in their upcoming title match. AAA retweeted Dave, which suggests this is a ongoing storyline and we probably haven’t seen the last of Dave.

Rob has highlights of 02/18/14 CMLL.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update and this week’s PosterMania.

Sexy Star says she’ll be in Jhonny Gonzalez’s corner in his next boxing match on 05/24 in Acapulco, as payback for Gonzalez helping train her and Pentagon Jr. for their mixed tag title match. Not sure if Pentagon Jr. is also going, but neither are listed on the TV taping the night prior.

A travel blog visits Arena Mexico. I feel like I’ve read fifty of these sort of articles, and Maximo is always the start of the show to people watching lucha libre for the first time.

Dr. Cerebro and other luchadors visited children in the hospital.

This Sunday’s GALLI show has GPA versus Bryce Benjamin and Acid Jazz vs Marshe Rockett, which sounds like a really good match.

Atlantis & Pirata Morgan Jr. is listed as happening in Cicero, Illinois on 05/25.

Sabor del Ring continues a series of an biographies of local SLP legends with Gavilan Sr. There’s also a bio of current luchador Maligno.

Monster & Murder Clown talk about their trios match next week.


CMLL (MON) 05/19/2014 Arena Puebla
1) Águila Egipcia & Metatrón vs Ares & Guerrero Espacial
2) Asturiano, Meyer, Tigre Rojo Jr. vs Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Violencia, Pequeño Warrior
3) Fuego, Rey Cometa, Sagrado vs Cancerbero, Kamaitachi, Raziel
4) Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr., Máximo vs Felino, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas
5) Máscara Dorada, Valiente, Volador Jr. vs Gran Guerrero, Niebla Roja, Último Guerrero

Looks like a Volador/Ultimo Guerrero feud, and a minis versus locals one on the undercard.

05/06-11 lucha videos

Last Friday’s CMLL’s main event did air – with editing. AAA’s main event did not air; there’s a few seconds of Bengala after the main event but not more than that. AAA’s opener will air on UTDN and is included in the YouTube version of the show, but did not air on Televisa.

Toryumon, Wagner in IWRG

2) Demus 3:16, Krator, Pequeño Nitro, Silvie Silver b Astral, Eléctrico, Shockercito
Silvie accompanied Demus and wrestled in the 4 on 3 match.
3) Dark Angel, Io Shirai, Kairi Hojo, Mayu Iwayani b Baby Star, Diosa Atenea, Mystique, Princesa Ahy Lyn
4) Patan b Magnus, Infierno, Loco Max, Akuma, Grako, Robin Hood, Chavo Lomeli, Piel Roja, Hijo del Signo, El Arquero, Douki, Brazo de Platino [dragon rumble]
Infierno, Robin Hood, el Arquero replaced Latino, Coco Verde. Patan beat Brazo de Platino

7) Atlantis, Brazo de Plata, Zeus b Arkángel de la Muerte, Gran Guerrero, Rey Bucanero
Atlantis and Zeus replaced Akebono
8) Último Guerrero b Veneno [Copa Mundial, semifinal]

10) Super Ciudadano b Yoruba [mask, hair]
Yoruba lost his dreadlocks.
11) Último Guerrero b Tigre Ali [Copa Mundial, final]
Patan helped Tigre Ali, but Ultimo Dragon evened the odds and Guerrero won. Guerrero and Dragon tentatively shook hands after the match.

The usual load of randomness on a DragonMania, plus the required Dragon/Guerrero tease.

IWRG (SUN) 05/11/2014 Arena Naucalpan [Black Terry Jr. (Flickr), IWRG]
1) Alfa & Omega b ? & Hip Hop Man
Results only list Hip Hop Man on the rudo side; was scheduled to be both Fulgors. Arana de Plata may have worked the match, but there are no pictures.
2) Ángel Del Amor & Metaleon b Astro Rey Jr. & Imposible
Arana de Plata and Hip Hop Man removed from the match, and Astro Rey moved over to the rudo side.
3) Apolo Estrada Jr., El Hijo del Diablo, Eterno b Dr. Cerebro, Toscano, Veneno
4) Hijo de Pirata Morgan & Hijo del Dr. Wagner Jr. b Danny Casas & Hijo de Máscara Año 2000
Team Pirata/Wagner took 2/3.
5) Dr. Wagner Jr., Hijo De Dos Caras, Súper Nova b Demon Clown, Pirata Morgan, X-Fly
Wagner’s first match here since October. Demon Clown’s debut. Tecnicos took 1/3, Pirata and Wagner exchanging falls.

No idea who Demon Clown is. I think they’re still setting up an Imposible title match at some point.

Diamante Azul defends his NWA Light Heavyweight championship against Ripper in Puebla tonight. There’s almost no chance Azul is going to lose.

The government panel who refused to let Hijo del Santo speak is now apologizing to Hijo del Santo.

Doradafan has highlights of 04/08/14 CMLL.

Me gusta Box Y Lucha has a round up of Sin Cara on the indies videos.

Segunda Caida recaps La Sombra, Mistico, Valiente vs Gran Guerrero, Niebla Roja and Ultimo Guerrero.



CMLL (SUN) 05/18/2014 Arena México
1) Magnus & Molotov vs Camorra & Zayco
2) Dragon Lee, Metatrón, Star Jr. vs Espanto Jr., Hooligan, Nitro
3) Black Panther, Stigma, Tritón vs Pólvora, Tiger, Virus
4) Fuego vs Felino [lightning]
5) Marco Corleone, Rey Cometa, Titán vs Euforia, Gran Guerrero, Niebla Roja
6) Máscara Dorada, Valiente, Volador Jr. vs La Máscara, La Sombra, Rush

That’s about as big a tecnico versus “tecnico?” match as CMLL can run, with no build, for not much reason on a Sunday. Mascara Dorada is going to Japan in a week so I guess they might as well do it now is the theory? It should be good. Top four matches will all be good. Zayco/Magnus must continue!





CMLL (SUN) 05/18/2014 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Dr. Frezzer & Índigo vs El Piraña & Jocker
2) El Brillante vs Acertijo
3) Exterminador & Javier Cruz Jr. vs Espectrum & Évola
4) Sky Kid & Smaker vs Infierno & Magnum
5) Delta vs Rey Bucanero, Gallo, Pierroth, Stuka Jr., Cavernario, Guerrero Maya Jr., Boby Zavala, León Blanco, Ráfaga [cibernetico]

A random cibernetico, setting up – something.

Sombra keeps the NWA Middleweight championship, Niebla Roja versus Titan


Mascara Dorada

CMLL (SUN) 05/11/2014 Arena Coliseo [CMLL, LuchaWorld]
1) Akuma & Zayco b Leono & Magnus Leono & Magnus vs Akuma & Zayco, on DailyMotion (posted by thecubsfan)
Rudos took 2/3. Zayco cheated, pulling Magnus’ mask off for the deciding pin.
2) Hombre Bala Jr., Pegasso, Starman b Canelo Casas, Disturbio, Ramstein Hombre Bala Jr., Pegasso, Starman vs Canelo Casas, Disturbio, Ramstein, on DailyMotion (posted by thecubsfan)
Tecnicos took 1/3.
3) Fuego, Rey Cometa, Tritón b Kamaitachi, Misterioso Jr., Shigeo Okumura Fuego, Rey Cometa, Triton vs Kamaitachi, Misterioso Jr., Shigeo Okumura, on DailyMotion (posted by thecubsfan)
Tecnicos took 2/3, the last when Misterioso was once again rolled up (by Rey Cometa) while celebrating.
4) Valiente b Vangellys [lightningValiente vs Vangellys in a lightning match, on DailyMotion (posted by thecubsfan)
6:50. Valiente avenged the En Busca de un Idolo result won with a dropkick to the knee and a running splash.
5) Atlantis, Máscara Dorada, Titán DQ Euforia, Niebla Roja, Terrible Atlantis, Mascara Dorada, Titan vs Euforia, Niebla Roja, Terrible, on DailyMotion (posted by thecubsfan)
Tecnicos took 2/3, the last by DQ when Roja pulled Titan’s mask. They had been feuding all match.
6) La Sombra b Rey Escorpión [NWA MIDDLELa Sombra vs Rey Escorpion for the NWA World Middleweight Championship, on DailyMotion (posted by thecubsfan)
La Sombra is champion. Rey Escorpion won the first with a sit down powerbomb, Sombra took the second with his running double knee smash, and Sombra won the long third fall by escaping Aguijón Mortal and finishing Escorpion with the Shadow Driver. Fourth defense.

Sombra versus Rey Escorpion was good, though not at the level of Sombra versus Dragon Rojo in the same building. It never got to that level of intensity in part because of the flipped characters they’re playing. Sombra’s adapted to the new super confident persona easily, but it only really works in a match when that confidence is pierced. They only got a little bit of that here. I don’t watch a lot of non-CMLL NJPW, but it feels like Sombra is borrowing from Shinsuke Nakamura’s personality, who has gotten this bit to work for him (and maybe in a completely different way than I’ve figured.) Match just seemed like it had three-five more minutes into it when it ended

We’re more than due for another big Titan single match, but the big interest in that feud is to see what Niebla Roja’s got in a long form singles match. He’s gotten a half dozen lightning matches the last year, but the only three fall singles match he’s had was a Sunday Guadalajara non-televised one versus Valiente last October. You’d have to go all the way back to 2008 and a Guerrero Inca versus Semental (!) match in Arena Olimpico Laguna for a three fall match. He’s surely snuck one in on a show we just don’t have a record of, but nothing high profile until now. Niebla Roja seems like he’s pretty good in trios and he and Titan had an insane lightning match last year. He just needs a chance to put it together in a tercera caida.

Magnus versus Zayco might be a real feud. Zayco was hurt in their last match in February, and the recap emphasized a rivalry back then.

CMLL (SUN) 05/11/2014 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Relampago Azul b Marvel
2) Dr. Frezzer & El Ídolo vs Ángel del Mal & El Yaqui
Tecnicos took 1/3. Yaqui went out on a stretcher.
3) William Rock b Furia Nazi
4) Demonio Maya, Espectrum, Évola b Explosivo, Exterminador, León Blanco
Rudos took 1/3. Exterminador was hurt in the second fall.
5) Maléfico & Mr. Águila b Esfinge & Stuka Jr.
Rudos took 2/3.
6) Ephesto & Mephisto b La Máscara & Máximo
Rudos took 1/3 when Mascara and Maximo didn’t get along.

Toryumon’s DragonMania show was today in Arena Mexico. Ultimo Guerrero won the six way main event and Yoruba lost his hair in the undercard.

IWRG set up a Hijo de Mascara Ano 2000 versus Hijo del Pirata Morgan match for the IWRG Juniors championship next week. Looks like the white radio sponsored mat is only a Sunday deal.

Amapola will defend her CMLL-REINA International championship in Tokyo on 05/25 versus Syuri. La Comandante is also on the card.

Rob has highlights of 02/14/14 CMLL.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.

Super Libre had Silueta, Hijo del Solitario and Hechicero among many guests this week.

Estrella Explosiva versus Skadi has been added to the 05/25 Chilanga Mask show. That’s the third women’s match on the show, joining Marcela/Silueta and Zeuxis/Chik Tormenta.

The Gladiatores talks to el Dandy about his retirement tour. Which continues to grow: he’s working May 30th in Arena Queretaro, which is after when that hair match was supposed to take place (and I haven’t heard much about them lately.)

R de Rudo writes about Lady Apache for Mother’s Day – she actually became a grandmother last year.

DJ Spectro looks back at Atlantis’ color change of 1984 and the many Skeletors. The multiple Skeletor thing is vastly confusing when going thru old results with little context.

Column goes with the “people complain about seeing the same matches every week; it’s good we’re bringing back a lot of old timers for their own promotion” ending. Not sure that holds up.

Luchadoras cool off after Friday’s all women’s show.

SuperLuchas writes about the red mats. Someone besides me did care!

Atlantis defeats Guerrero, En Busca de un Idolo


CMLL (FRI) 05/09/2014 Arena México [CMLL, Terra]
1) El Rebelde & Hijo del Signo b Bengala & Flyer Bengala & Flyer vs El Rebelde & Hijo del Signo, on DailyMotion (posted by thecubsfan)
Tecnicos took 1/3.
2) Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Violencia, Pequeño Warrior b Acero, Aéreo, Fantasy Acero, Aereo, Fantasy vs Pequeno Nitro, Pequeno Violencia, Pequeno Warrior, on DailyMotion (posted by thecubsfan)
Rudos took 2/3.
3) Lluvia, Marcela, Princesa Sugheit b Dalys, La Seductora, Tiffany Lluvia, Marcela, Princesa Sugheit vs La Seductora, Princesa Blanca, Tiffany, on DailyMotion (posted by thecubsfan)
Dalys replaced Seductora. Straight falls. Rudas were DQed for excessive violence in the first. Sugheit submitted Blanca in the third.
4) Cachorro b Hechicero [En Busca de un IdoloCachorro vs Hechicero in a En Busca de un Idolo match, on DailyMotion (posted by thecubsfan)
Mascara Dorada was a guest judge. Cachorro countered one of Hechicero’s swinging moves into an elbowlock for the win in 7:35. Cachorro scored a 7, 9, 9, 8 for 33. Hechicero scored a 9, 7, 8, 9 for a 33.
5) Star Jr. b Soberano Jr. [En Busca de un IdoloMother's Day Male Dance, on DailyMotion (posted by thecubsfan) Star Jr. vs Soberano Jr. in a En Busca de un Idolo match, on DailyMotion (posted by thecubsfan)
6:28 with a sharpshooter. Star Jr. scored 8, 8, 9, 10 to a 35, Soberano Jr. scored a 8, 8, 7, 5 for 28. A male dance show in honors of Mother’s Day followed the match.
6) Marco Corleone, Titán, Valiente b Dragón Rojo Jr., Ephesto, Mephisto
Tecnicos took 2/3.
7) Atlantis, Máscara Dorada, Volador Jr. b Gran Guerrero, Niebla Roja, Último Guerrero
Tecnicos took 1/3.

Hechicero is in. Cavernario is only in fourth because he hasn’t had his Week 6 match yet. He’ll be between thirty five and fifty five points past four place by time he has Tuesday’s match. The caveman hasn’t officially clinched but it’s unlikely three people will pass him. Guerrero Negro & Super Halcon are unlikely to get enough support be a threat, leaving four people for two top spots:

+00 Star Jr. 
-02 Cavernario
-11 Soberano Jr.
-54 Dragon Lee (but with one more match left)

(Again, this is assuming top four advance to something. No one in CMLL has stated this as fact.)

Dragon Lee really needs a win against Super Halcon Jr. to stay in this, especially since it’s tough to pick up judge’s points in matches against Super Halcon Jr. He, and anyone else, could pick up some ground in the internet polling but the points handed out for those results have become more similar as the contest has gone on. That’s the same trend as previous years; it’s easier to pick up 30 points early on than it is to pick up 15 later. (And, don’t forget, the poll will close very early on the last week.)

None of those four face each other the rest of the way. The margins are tight enough that it’ll probably turn on a match outcome, and we might not sure who advances until those final poll numbers are calculated.

CMLL definitely reset the voting totals going into this week; you can go to to register your vote.

Peste Negra defeated Atlantis, Valietne and Mascara Dorada to keep the Mexican Trios Championship in Puebla on Thursday

Last Sunday’s main event in Arena Lopez Mateos set up a Gallego versus Rocky Santana versus Bombero Infernal triangle apuesta match at some future date.

Rossy Moreno defeated Lady Apache in the main event of the outdoor all women’s show.

Today’s AAA show is already up on YouTube.

Tonight is the annual DragonMania show. All tickets are given away by the promotion or the sponsors; you can’t actually buy them, as this Facebook posts warns. I haven’t seen any update on Akebono’s health; I’d assume he’s not coming and they’re just not going to say anything.

El Hijo del Santo was in San Jose Del Cabo, helping the Wildcoast environmental organization campaign against a development project which would endanger a large reef in the area. The president of the group was supposed to speak before a panel deciding on the matter (and who may have already actually decided on the matter), but the president ceded his time to Santo to give the presentation instead. The panel refused to let Hij odel Santo speak, because he was wearing a mask and not using his real name. Hijo del Santo furiously stormed the dias (accidentally knocking over a bystander in the process) and went face to face with the people in charge before being thrown out of the meeting.

Black Terry Jr. has photos of the Averno/Sin Cara show in Arena San Juan Pantitlan last night.

There’s a benefit show in Arena Coliseo Chihuahua on 05/17 for a local soccer referee.

Shocker, Dragon Rojo and Cachorro spoke at one of the periodic lucha libre panels at UNAM.

Mascara Ano 2000 Jr. says this is the last few days of the Psycho Circus trios title reign.

Not sure how the semimain actually ends.

2) Dark Angel, Princesa Sugheit, Silueta vs La Seductora, Princesa Blanca, Tiffany

99% chance Terra will be a 4 match show unless the lineup is changed. Still no Rush, La Mascara, Negro Casas or Mr. Niebla – perhaps they’ll be back on 05/23. Princesa feud keeps on in the segunda. Mascara Dorada is on the 05/25 NJPW show. This is his last Friday night Arena Mexico match for a while.
