LLUSA (SUN) 04/14/2013 Citizen Banks Arena, Ontario, California [Carlos, So Cal Uncensored]
1) Mini Park & Vladimiro b Celestial & Pequeño Halloween
May not be the Mexico Celestial; name was unclear.
2) Dr. Pepper Man b Psicosis II
Dr. Pepper Man may have also been named El Nuevo Macho and might have been Rocky Romero.
3) Súper Nova b Super Crazy
Crazy played to the crowd a lot.
4) La Máscara b Mr. Águila
5) Hurricane Helms DQ Lizmark Jr.
Lizmark looked out of shape. Bad match.
6) Blue Demon Jr. & Solar I b Jon Rekon & RJ Brewer
A mini Demon helped out the tecnicos, but was attacked by Rekon. Entertaining main event. Tecnicos put a Solar mask on Brewer, and Rekon accidentally pinned him.
Although the show sounds long and not exactly lucha, I’m kind of amused this might be the easy way to see some CMLL guys without going to Mexico (or LA.) Lucha Libre USA’s website has a venue list for the rest of the tour. They’re going from the Alamodome in San Antonio to the Odeum Expo Center in (or more 30 minutes outside of) Chicago for the next show. There’s a smaller theatre in the Alamodome facility where the show actually is happening. The Odeum has a seating capacity of 5,000 people, but I’ve seen GALLI shows there with a lot less people than that. The Odeum site does not list the LLUSA show on their upcoming schedule, yet. Same is true of the Dallas show, but all the April venues are advertising their show dates.

DTU (SUN) 04/14/2013 Arena Aficion [Criterio Hidalgo, GL]
***Puerta a La Gloria (Sunday)***
1) Jhonky b Artikus, Hellboy, Yuta
Yuta, a Dragon Gate trainee making his debut anywhere, replaced Extreme Boy. He was said to have a great debut.
2) Gemelo De Chilpancingo I & Gemelo De Chilpancingo II b Lanzeloth & Rocky Lobo
3) Araña de Plata & Pequeno Cobra b Kaleth & Nino Hamburguesa and Jorge Kebrada & Slayer Pack
4) Hacker b Príncipe Halcón, Jinzo, Angel del Misterio

Super Mega defeated Black Fire to win. Both want a shot at Pesadilla (listed but did not appear) and his championship.
6) Crazy Boy & Flamita b CIMA & Tomahawk T.T. and Lucky Boy & Niño de Ébano
Flamita landed a triple tornillo on Tomahawk to give his team the win.
DTU Results! Tecnico/rudo status are guesses as usual. CIMA did a seminar before the second show (and maybe the first.) Flamita had a good weekend.
FMLL (SUN) 04/14/2013 Coliseum, El Paso, Texas [Albert Cerda]
2) Hijo de Impostor Jr., Impostor Jr., Maquina 45 Jr. b Acertijo, Galáctico, Tiger Man
3) Hijo de Rey Misterio II & Stuka Jr. b Cobarde Jr. & Magno
Stuka replaced La Mascara (LLUSA)
4) El Hijo Del Santo & Rayo de Jalisco Jr. DQ Angel Blanco Jr. & Cien Caras Jr.
Cien Caras fouled Rayo for DQ.
5) Atlantis & LA Park b Dr. Wagner Jr. & Último Guerrero
Tecnicos won clean. The middle rope broke before the third fall of the finish.
The main event gave them a chance to tease a four way mask match. Not happening.
CMLL (MON) 04/15/2013 Arena Puebla [El Popular (cover)]
1) Black Tiger & Tigre Rojo Jr. b El Malayo & Siki Ozama Jr.
Malayo’s Arena Puebla debut.
2) Metálico, Starman, Stigma DQ Hijo del Signo, Hooligan, Skándalo
Metalico pulled rival Signo’s mask for the DQ.
3) Misterioso Jr., Morphosis, Vangelis b Diamante, Hijo del Fantasma, Sagrado
4) Atlantis, La Máscara, Máscara Dorada b Ephesto, Mephisto, Psicosis
Tecnicos beat all the rudos in the third.
5) Ángel de Oro, La Sombra, Mistico DQ Dragón Rojo Jr., Pólvora, Rey Escorpión
Rematch from last week. Tecnicos took 2/3, the last when Dragon Rojo fouled Sombra. This sets up a singles rematch between them.
Main event is a left turn from the Rey Escorpion/Mistico match set up last week.
AAA’s revealed the Cordoba taping will be the first AAA Evolucion show. Evolucion is the Dorian/Konnan branch of AAA. Unsure how this actually works on TV (Evolucion is supposed to be UTDN only), or if this means these guys are dedicated to the Evolucion brand. I guess I’ll be keeping track of that. The lineup itself is as posted earlier. Enrique mentioned last night that the Chilpancingo taping is also an Evolucion taping.
Today’s Arena Mexico show has a La Mascara, Mascara Dorada and Sombra vs Averno, Mephisto and Ephesto main event, the return of a great 2011 rivalry. CMLL has the annual Kid’s Day show two weeks from today, and maybe a main event for that show will come of this main event. The CMLL Gaceta preview notes Super Comando returns in the segunda, facing the man who broke his ribs, Super Halcon Jr.
Both the Perros del Mal Arena Lopez Mateos event and the Hector Garza benefit show at Arena Solidaridad are taking place this Sunday. Both are supposed to include a mystery Perro del Mal in the main event. Ricky Marvin is probably the one in Arena Lopez Mateos, but not so sure about the other one. Daga looks to be the only Perros del Mal man not booked on either show, but there’s no reason to hide Daga’s identity. Maybe AAA had a plan of introducing another new Perros del Mal member last night, since a taping is the only place to do it, or it could just be more general changing plans.

Demon & Mesias fought during the match, but managed to win. Demon challenged LA Park to a title match, but Mesias attacked him again after the match.
Updated 10am Tuesday- note the finish in the fifth match has been fixed.
Air Date: 04/20 & 04/27
Lots of surprises on the Gran Sorpresa show (and not many I had in advance.)
The first big news of the show took place after the second mach. Blue Demon Jr. was brought to the ring, and it was announced he signed a contract to work for AAA on a regular basis. Demon introduced his guest, Axel (back to one x), who was also coming to AAA. Axel immediately challenged Daga to a title match, which Daga was not impressed by. They fought and were broken up with Joaquin Roldan helping. Joaquin and Demon announced the Leyenda Azul tournament, previously (and maybe still) ran in CMLL, would be coming to AAA as part of his signing and showed off a new belt for the championship.
Dorian Roldan and Konnan returned to AAA for the first time since they were fired in February to interrupt at this point, with Konnan announcing he was returning to in-ring competition. Konnan and Blue Demon had words and seemed to be setting up a match between them.
Later, in the La Secta vs Perros match, a man in an Axel mask ran in to attack the Perros. It wasn’t Axel, it was the returning Ricky Marvin, now the newest member of Perros del Mal.
Finally, in the main event, Mesias turned on Blue Demon Jr. and appears to be the rudo in the feud. Demon had already challenged LA Park to a Latin American title match, but Mesias appeared to challenge Demon for the new belt. (Texano Jr., the Mega champion, was pinned in the match and ignored in the post match.)
The Konnan return had been mentioned in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter earlier this year. He should be a major part of the AAA US Evolucion group, and this return should start things in that direction. Konnan and Dorian returning, with everything snapping right back to the status quo before they were fired in Pachuca, really makes that whole bit look very pointless. The story is they’re allowed back after Marisela Pena’s judgement, but part of her decision was the company would split in two, and the company has not appeared to split in any fashion as of yet. Maybe they will this weekend in Cordoba.
Ricky Marvin in Perros del Mal seems like it’ll be fun times. This was accidentally telegraphed by Marvin’s inclusion in the Fusion tournament, and Marvin’s been working shows with AAA guys when in Mexico. Marvin, Demon and Axel seem big enough names to get a LA Park/Dr. Wagner freedom deal – they’d control their schedule, not AAA (and AAA doesn’t get as much a cut – but no idea if actually that’s the deal. I have no idea where this leaves Super Crazy.
I’m not as enthused about Axel coming to AAA. He’s been more interesting as a trademark case than as an in-ring wrestler for many years, and didn’t stand out in any way during his short stints in CMLL. AAA seems to be employing Axel for the same primary reason CMLL did – to stick it to Hijo del Santo – but it’s going to end up in situations where he works a totally different style than guys like Daga. At the same time, I wasn’t really thrilled about Blue Demon Jr. showing up, and he was really good at Rey de Reyes. And he’s not this bad.
AAA has nine titles, already too much for one promotion and probably more than two smaller promotions need. At the same time (again!), a Leyenda de Azul tournament will probably end up being a good way to squeeze a lot of people onto TripleMania who wouldn’t otherwise get on if that’s the plan. It’d also be something to punch up an otherwise filler TV taping. It just doesn’t need to be something around every week.
Blue Demon Jr. seems to have more or less gotten Dr. Wagner Jr.’s spot in AAA. A nice gig if you can get it. Maybe I was right on the multiman match but for the wrong title – LA Park vs Demon vs Mesias, while Texano faces This Year’s Foreign Guest Star?
This post will be updated when AAA posts their recap.

IWRG (SUN) 04/14/2013 Arena Naucalpan [Black Terry Jr. (flickr), Estrellas del Ring]
1) Cristal, Saruman, Seiya b Alan Extreme, Diosa Maya, Fulgor
Diosa Maya replaced La Hielera.
2) Canis Lupus, Carta Brava Jr., Imposible b Black Terry, Centvrión, Golden Magic
Black Terry replaced Dinamic Black. Impossible was hurt in the first fall, but the rudos won anyway.
3) Astro Rey Jr., Chico Che, Veneno b Fresero Jr., Polvo de Estrellas, Yuriko
Fresero Jr., not an exotico, replaced Pasion Kristal.
4) Monster Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown DQ Negro Navarro, Trauma I, Trauma II
Psycho faked a foul to draw the DQ in the first, and Trauma II did the same in the third to get the win. Psycho Circus demanded a rematch and the Navarros accepted provided it be a trios title match.
5) Danny Casas, Heavy Metal, Toscano b Eterno, Máscara Año 2000 Jr., Texano Jr.
Tecnicos took 2/3. Eterno and Danny feuded, both bleeding. Heavy Metal beat Texano in the third with a casita and asked for a Mega title shot. Texano accepted. Danny asked for a hair match against Eterno. Eterno did not accept.
Results haven’t turned up for the Toryumon and DTU shows from the weekend. From Black Terry Jr.’s pictures, it looks like Tomahawk, Eita and Flamita (!) turned on CIMA in Tulancingo. CIMA mentions on his blog that new kid Yuta debuted in Arena Aficion as a replacement. Meanwhile, Negro Casas appears to have kept the NWA Welterweight Championship over Ultimo Dragon.
AAA tapes tonight in Leon, the first of two tapings in six days. The main event of TripleMania is set, but they should start to indicate the rest of the card. The main event is Blue Demon & Mesias vs LA Park & Texano Junior. Mesias seems due a shot at the title (skipping past the one he’s getting on the WWL Puerto Rico show this weekend) and a rematch with Texano originally seemed like the most likely AAA Mega championship match for Rey de Reyes. That was before Blue Demon got the non-title win over Texano in Naucalpan, which seems to mean he’ll still be around. Maybe they’re headed to a three way title match? A four way title match since LA Park has nothing better to do?
The Mirreyes debut in the fourth match. The Perros (with Perro Jr.) face La Secta (without Cibernetico) in a brawl that looks like it’ll end as poorly for Cuervo’s team as the Naucalpan match ended for him. The current women’s and minis feuds keep going, and the Rockers continue to alternate between facing a flying team and facing the Psycho Circus. It’s a flying team tonight.

CMLL (SUN) 04/14/2013 Arena Coliseo [CMLL on Terra]
1) Apocalipsis & Camorra b Bengala & Camaleón
Rudos took 2/3, Camorra submitting Camaleon and Apocalipsis doing the same to Bengala.
2) Arkángel de la Muerte, Bobby Zavala, Nosferatu b Magnus, Soberano Jr., Super Halcón Jr.
Rudos took 2/3, Arkangel beating Soberano with a spinning powerbomb.
3) Metálico b Hijo del Signo [lightning]
Metalico used a headscissors armbar to submit Hijo del Signo in a match that fell of badly in the second half.
4) Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr., Rey Cometa DQ Misterioso Jr., Puma, Shigeo Okumura
Tecnicos took 2/3, the last when Namajague attacked Cometa as he was going for the 450. Namajague ranted in Japanese after and demanded a hair vs hair match.
5) Marco Corleone, Rush, Thunder b Ephesto, Felino, Terrible
Tecnicos took 1/3, including Thunder beating Terrible again.
6) Averno, Máximo, Mephisto b Mistico, Valiente, Volador Jr. [Relevos Increíbles]
Maximo worked as a rudo, and his team took the first fall. Volador pinned Averno took the second. Mistico got La Mistica on Averno in the second, but Volador broke it up, pulled off his mask (not a DQ?) and the rudos covered for the win. Volador and Mistico made challenges post match.
They announced the next two Sunday shows would be at Arena Mexico and they’d be back at Arena Coliseo on 05/05. That slightly confused me, because I could’ve sworn RadioCMLL was giving away tickets for a 05/05 Arena Mexico show this past Friday. Must’ve misunderstood something on that giveaway.
It does seem like CMLL’s headed to a Volador/Mistico match on one of those two Sundays, which should be entertaining for the reactions even beyond the wrestling matches. Fans were more receptive to Mistico here. Volador called him a cheap copy after the match, then went on Facebook to explain he didn’t care won or lose, just proved he was better.
My hunch is the Rey Cometa/Namajague feud exists as emergency back up plan if something happens with Shocker or Mr. Aguila. A mask loser losing his hair quickly after is something which might have been seen in IWRG in past years (though not as much recently), but it’s nothing CMLL has done in a long time and Cometa losing doesn’t make a lot of sense either. On the other hand, they’re pushing this feud hard and quick, and Friday’s lightning match stuck out as unusual; there’s usually not an undercard singles match when they’re running a tournament.

1) El Piraña b Meteoro
2) Mr. Trueno & Rey Trueno b Halcón de Plata & Javier Cruz
Truenos took 1/3.
3) Azteca de Oro DQ Demonio Rojo
Hippie and Sadico were seconds and got involved, as did Acetijo & Black Metal. Rudos eventually got DQed. A Hippie & Azteca de Oro vs Sadico & Acertijo mask/hair double apuesta match was set up for 04/28.
4) Leo, León Blanco, Smaker DQ Olímpico, Sangre Azteca, Virus
GDL vs DF. Staraight falls for the hometown team, the first by excessive violence on Smaker, the second because Sangre Azteca fouled Leo and Olimpico pulled Leon Blanco’s mask. Sangre demanded a shot at Leo’s Occidente Welterweight Championship next week, while Leon Blanco wants a shot at Olimpico’s Occidente heavyweight championship on 04/28.
5) Ángel de Oro, Diamante Azul, Gallo b Bárbaro Cavernario, Dragón Rojo Jr., Ráfaga
Tecnicos took 1/3, Azul submitting Rojo in the third.

CMLL (FRI) 04/19/2013 Arena Mexico
1) Eléctrico & Pequeño Halcón vs Pequeño Violencia & Pequeño Warrior
2) Metálico & Molotov vs Disturbio & Hijo del Signo
3) Mistico vs Valiente, Rey Cometa, Guerrero Maya Jr., Fuego, Volador Jr., Averno, Tiger, Namajague, Sangre Azteca [cibernetico, #1 contender, MEX WELTER]
4) Rush & Sensei vs Espanto Jr. & Mr. Niebla and Camaleón & Super Porky and Herodes Jr. & Terrible and La Sombra & Soberano Jr. and Cholo & Rey Bucanero and Blue Panther & Leono andBobby Zavala & Rey Escorpión [Gran Alternativa, semifinal]
5) Atlantis, Diamante Azul, Shocker vs Euforia, Mr. Águila, Último Guerrero
Metalico vs Hijo del Signo feud moves to this show. Those two, Cometa, Namajague, Aguila, Shocker would make six, they’re only one more feud away from a random cage match.
There’s a lot of good people in that cibernetico – including one person who is Japanese last time I checked and not at all eligible to win that championship, and somehow a large booking committee all missed that - but it sure looks like a scenario where Mistico gets Titan’s championship in two weeks. That would be a revolting turning of events. Match is listed as determining top contenders, so it’s a bit where the last two face off next week and everyone boos.
A singles title match makes it unlikely CMLL is doing a Mr. Aguila vs Shocker hair match on 04/26. The week after is slated to be Atlantis’ anniversary show.
Gran Alternativa looks like Bobby Zavala’s to win, unless we’ve totally misread CMLL’s feelings on him. Herodes & Terrible is a visually fun team and the only other rudo side which seems to have a chance.

Lider & Crazy can keep up with Marvin & Crazy (which means they’ll need to make the match slower.)
