Apolo Dantes says they’re still airing these shows. They’ve never on when they’re listed on the Canal 6 schedule. I may just record about 12 hours and see if they’re snuck in there somewhere.
I was told Shocker sounded drunk on Monday’s Arena Puebla’s show. By luck, Porra Fresa has video of the main event with Shocker. Shocker looks like he’s having trouble, but, if he’s drunk, it doesn’t come across as clearly as the last time here. (I didn’t hear the promo.) It’s not a good situation, but it’s also not a new situation. It doesn’t make sense for CMLL to use Shocker in a hair match with his question marks, but maybe it makes sense for A&E. This was about the time of year they taped the last couple seasons of El Luchador and Shocker’s been a major part of the first two seasons.
Record has an article on Arena Coliseo being abandoned as a boxing arena. Strong work using the most dilapidated photo they could find for the main photo. It turns out to be not much about the condition of the building (as Apolo Valdes points out, it’s actually fine for a 70 year old building), but the two reasons give are the ‘insecurity’ around the arena and the lack of parking. The insecurity is the same reason why CMLL runs only Sunday early evening shows in Arena Coliseo.
Highlights of Monday’s Arena Cuatro Caminos de Nuevo Laredo show show. Fenix appears to have kept the Fusion title over a Rio Bravo.
DTU has posted their busy schedule for the month. There’s not the make up date in Queretaro, at least yet.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.
- AAA has the third part of it’s Jennifer Blake interview.
- CMLL promo for Friday’s show.
- There’s a legends expo this weekend.

There’s no sign of a Thursday IWRG lineup.
IWRG (SUN) 04/07/2013 Arena Naucalpan
1) Ángel Del Amor & Mr. Leo vs Araña de Plata Jr. & Fulgor
2) Centvrión, Dinamic Black, Golden Magic vs Alan Extreme, Carta Brava Jr., Imposible
3) Pasion Kristal, Polvo de Estrellas, Yuriko vs Chico Che, Spartaco, Trauma II

Navarro & Trauma I are champions, attempting sixth known defense.
5) Danny Casas, Heavy Metal, Veneno vs Monster Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown
Main event is a Casas family trio – Veneno is a brother in a law.
Figuring on a title change in the tag title match. Not a sure thing.
Spartaco, assuming this isn’t a new one, is a 94/95-ish UWA wrestler who had a singles match with Ultimo Guerrero in Monterrey a couple years ago and mostly wrestles around Saltillo (Arena Pavillon del Norte.)
Second match looks great and I hope it airs.
CMLL (TUE) 04/09/2013 Arena Mexico
1) Génesis & Metatrón vs Herodes Jr. & Zayco
2) Shockercito, Stukita, Último Dragoncito vs Demus 3:16, Pequeño Violencia, Pequeño Warrior
3) Dalis la Caribeña vs Zeuxis [lightning]
4) Fuego, Metálico, Sagrado vs Hooligan, Nitro, Skándalo
5) Rey Bucanero, Rey Escorpión, Terrible vs Blue Panther, Diamante, Stuka Jr.
6) Felino, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas vs Diamante Azul, Máximo, Super Porky
Diamante Azul needs to learn comedy spots.
I hope everyone lives thru the lightning match.
It looks like the Shockercito/Violencia feud is a new ongoing issue.
CMLL (TUE) 04/09/2013 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Metatrón & Sky Kid vs Mr. Trueno & Rey Trueno
2) Pegasso, Starman, Tritón vs Cancerbero, Raziel, Virus
3) Pequeño Olímpico vs Astral [CMLL MINI]
Pequeno Olimpico is champion, going for his fourth known defense
4) Rush, Shocker, Valiente vs Kráneo, Mr. Águila, Psicosis
5) Atlantis, Mistico, Thunder vs Euforia, Niebla Roja, Último Guerrero
The Mr. Aguila vs Shocker feud migrates here. It’s the trios champions teaming up again, so another title match is even possible. Valiente can make it back from NJPW for that match, but he’s going to be one tired guy.
Astral got a title match about six weeks ago in Puebla.
