CMLL (FRI) 04/29/2011 Arena Mexico
***Arena Mexico 55th Anniversary***
1) Dr. X, Hooligan, InquisidorPegasso, Sensei, Starman
2) Hijo del Fantasma, Sangre Azteca, ValienteMisterioso Jr., Shigeo Okumura, Vangelis
3) Hijo del SignoPuma King [Forjando un Idolo]
Hijo del Signo [6] submitted Puma Kind [0] to move on.
4) DiamanteHombre Bala Jr. [Forjando un Idolo]
Dimanate [9] pinned Hombre Bala Jr. [3] to complete his clean sweep. Signo moves on with Bala’s win.
5) Último GuerreroHirooki Goto [CMLL HEAVY]
Rudo took the first fall, but Guerrero came back to win the final two to keep the title.
6) La Máscara, La Sombra, RushAverno, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas
Despite Tirantes refereeing, the tecnicos still won in straight falls. Heavy feuding between Averno

Perro Aguayo Jr. held a press conference to talk about his surgery and announce his return. Tons of reports: MedioTiempo, Mi Lucha Libre, The Gladiatores, Estrellas del Ring, Record

Perro says he’s on food reactions, his blood will be tested regularly, he’s on medication, he’s not able to lift the weight he used to, but the doctors encouraged him to get back to work ASAP. Huh. Perro’s hair is shorter – he says the hospital did what Mistico or Wagner couldn’t do. A lot of challenges towards Wagner to keep that feud going. Perro spoke out against rumors that he’d actually been in rehab for substance abuse, declaring them false and his illness real. Since he mentioned it, the time span of his disappearing act was much close to the normal rehab stint than a operation on a vital organ, but he does have a surgical scar in his favor.

Ras de Lona included the official formation of a trio that’s been going for about ten days. Terrible & Texano announced they’ve left Hijos de Averno & Rey Bucanero had left Pesta Negra to form a new trio. (They asked for names, which never ever goes anywhere, and I thought they had a name.) Zacarias tried to join the group, and they all kicked him away. Zacarias latched on to Bucanero’s leg, but Terrible & Texano pulled him off. Zacarias gestured at the rudos, and they all chased him away.

Other stuff: Both the 05/08 and 05/15 Sunday shows are in Arena Mexico. DragonMania is probably 05/14 in Arena Mexico as well, so a lot of shows. Those are discounted shows, as are the 05/10 (1 peso for kids) and 05/03 (Fan Appreciation) shows. Cheap tickets before WWE comes to town? Strong push for Ultimo Guerrero vs Rey Escorpion (new change was quickly mentioned and then treated as no big deal.)  Goto talked in Spanish about the title match.

AAA in AJPW
04/30: Suwama (O), Shuji Kondo, Hiroshi Yamato b Ryota Hama (X), Super Crazy, Bushi
That wraps the tour.

Main event is a rematch from last week, so they’re setting up something for next week. No idea what.

CMLL (TUE) 05/03/2011 Arena Mexico

5) Black Warrior, Máximo, Super Porky vs Dragón Rojo Jr., Héctor Garza, Mr. Niebla

Fan Appreciation Show, but since they’re coming back with another cheap ticket the following week, some match is being set up here. Couldn’t tell you what.

This is Bam Bam’s only second DF match since losing his title two months ago, and he hasn’t been appearing much elsewhere.

CMLL (FRI) 05/06/2011 Arena Mexico
1) Dalys la Caribeña, Goya Kong, Luna Mágica vs Estrellita, La Comandante, Princesa Blanca
2) Ángel de Plata, Delta, Stuka Jr. vs Pólvora, Shigeo Okumura, Yoshihashi
3) Diamante vs Fuego [Forjando un Idolo, quarterfinal]
4) Ángel de Oro vs Group Charly second place [Forjando un Idolo, quarterfinal]
5) Blue Panther, Rush, Strong Man vs Rey Bucanero, Terrible, Texano
6) La Máscara, La Sombra, Máscara Dorada vs Atlantis, Averno, Último Guerrero

No tiebreaker match. Maybe I misunderstood? CMLL’s Forjando un Idolo page also says there will be a tiebreaker match if neither Guerrero Maya or Metal Blanco gets a bonus point. That won’t happen until after Sunday’s show and Maya is supposed to be in GDL on Tuesday, so that just leaves an added match to Monday. (Or Maya just getting pulled off GDL show. Or CMLL just ignoring it. Or doing match in an empty arena and putting it up on YouTube for fun.)

Main event is sort of top rudos vs top tecnicos (who happen to be the trios champs.) With Rush, Strong Man, Terrible and Texano on the show too, they’ve loaded it up with their big names even if they don’t have a big match.
