Lineups

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 ValienteRey CometaGuerrero Maya Jr.FuegoVolador Jr.AvernoTigerNamajagueSangre 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.
