Tonight’s a bigger the normal Arena Mexico show, both their Kid’s Day show as well as the Arena Mexico show. The biggest match is Ultimo Guerrero vs Hirooki Goto for the CMLL Heavyweight Championship (the second CMLL title defense of the day; keep reading.) Goto could take this, but that would mean he’d be coming back in six weeks for the Universal Tournament and later to drop the title; he’d be trading one win for likely two losses. Match should be good regardless of the result.

There’s also the closing matches for Forjando un Idolo’s Group Alfa. Diamante is almost certainty thru, and Hombre Bala (vs Diamante) and Hijo del Signo (vs Puma King) competing in separate matches for a second win and advancement into the playoff round. This is a tough one to read. Speaking of this tournament, the current vote leaders (Delta, Angel de Plata, Magnus) would not affect the standings if any of them win this week’s bonus point. The vote totals are a lot more balanced this week than previous weeks…

Over on the Box Y Lucha forum, there’s an scanned article on the first Arena Mexico show (written around the 20th.)

Quinto Misterio & Estrella Dorada Jr., luchadors in northern Mexico, are in custody after being accused of kidnapping. They were part of the muscle for a couple of casino employees, angry about one of them being fired, decided to kidnap their boss. The kidnapping took place back in January and there’s no word on how they were discovered. Estrella Dorada has been wrestling in Arena Coliseo Monterrey, while Quinto Misterio is on smaller shows and also wrestles as Fake Rey Misterio.
