Villanos Gym vs IWRG Trainees. Villano IV & V were their with their team and Black Terry & Hijo del Diablo with the IWRG team. After one of the Villanos trainees failed to catch Alan Extreme on a dive, the trainers almost fought. Ray Mendoza also posted Fresero, busting him open. Fresero managed to the final against Negro Casasola had him in a submission, but the referee was acting suspicious and missed it. Casasola came back to pin Fresero to take the crown for team Villano Gym. Referee posed with the Villanos after the match.

After taking the first fall, the team of Trauma and the Villanos fell apart in the third fall. Villanos turned on Trauma, allowing the Maniaco team to win, then attacked Trauma I more affter the bell. Trauma II, Negro Navarro and Multifacetico attempted to make the save, but Trauma II took a martinete along the line. Villanos are now allied with Silver King.

Very low attendance.

La Presna sees tonight’s Arena Mexico show as more La Mascara vs Ultimo Guerrero. Also, the new Terrible/Texano/Rey Bucanero trio teams up in the semimain, and the first two quarterfinals in Forjando Un Idolo (Diamante/Fuego + Angel de Oro/Guerrero Maya) take place.

CMLL on NJPW – Mascara Dorada’s Best of the Super Juniors matches (schedule here)
05/26 (S): Jushin Liger vs Mascara Dorada
05/28 (S): off
05/29 (S): TAKA Michinoku vs Mascara Dorada
06/02: Kota Ibushi vs Mascara Dorada
06/03: Ryusuke Taguchi vs Mascara Dorada
06/04: The Great Sasuke vs Mascara Dorada
06/05: Daisuke Sasaki vs Mascara Dorada
06/07 (S): Gedo vs Mascara Dorada
06/08 (S): KUSHIDA vs Mascara Dorada
06/10 (S): semifinals, finals.

That’s a front loaded schedule! The three most winnable matches are the three last matches, so don’t be too concerned if Dorada has a really bad point total for a while. Opening up with the Liger match is very interesting.

All dates with (S) are Samurai! TV tapings. The shows that aren’t taped for TV stand a very good shot of turning up on NJPW’s YouTube channel. Less so for the TV tapings.
