CMLL in Japan
NJPW 06/07: Mascara Dorada  b Gedo  (7:37)
Dorada did get the 8 points, because since Great Sasuke lost to Kota Ibushi with all the other expected results, he’s only in third behind both Ibushi and Sasuke. Dorada lost to both guys, so that seems to mean he’s eliminated. He’s got one final league match vs KUSHIDA tomorrow, who’s still in the running.
Averno‘s “I’m not going to WWE!” interview tour rolled thru Guadalajara Sunday. He doesn’t really explain why his father said so, but just insists on his personal professionalism.
Guerrero Maya Jr. feels winning today will be a double challenge – fighting for a title and fighting against a Maestro. Virus is the favorite to win the CMLL Super Light championship tonight, but Maya says he plans to out last Virus.
The Soberano wrestling in today’s opener turns out to be Euforia’s young son (scroll down to the last bit.) He’s just 17, but he’s been wrestling around La Laguna the last few years.

Two straight weeks of no Tapatios vs Gen 11. Though the Tapatios are still around…

5) Ángel de Oro, Sagrado, Super Porky vs Histeria, Olímpico, Psicosis
Back in the long ago days where the Tapatios were tecnicos (February), they won the tag match.
Peculiar how Histeria is suddenly getting booked by CMLL again, especially after his brother Durango was let go.

Loco Max & the Tuareg vs Puebla tecnicos! In related news, the anniversary show is coming up here.
That semifinal looks great.

1) Guerrero Mistico Jr. & Tartu el Brujo Jr. vs Calaca Rumbera Jr. & Rolling Boy
2) Hermano Muerte Jr., Sepulcro Jr., Ultratumba Jr. vs Tortuguilla Karateka I, Tortuguilla Karateka II, Zodiacal Jr.

6) Cuchillo Jr., Hijo de Rambo, Principe Odin vs Gallo Tapado Jr., Halcon 78 Jr., Hijo de Mascara Sagrada [Juniors TRIOS]
The usual sort of card they’ve been doing, plus the hair match.
CMLL (SAT) 07/23/2011 Centro Banamex
1) Cancerbero, Pólvora, Raziel vs Ángel de Oro, Ángel de Plata, Höruz
2) Dark Angel, Goya Kong, Lluvia vs Amapola, Princesa Sugheit, Zeuxis

4) Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas, Rey Bucanero vs Hijo del Fantasma, Máscara Dorada, Máximo
5) Atlantis, La Sombra, Volador Jr. vs La Máscara, Shocker, Último Guerrero [Relevos Increíbles]
Averno in the tercera, in late July. That’s precious. Angel de Oro being in the opener and Bucanero in Pesta Negra seems to indicate this card was made out a while ago. Interesting to see Ultimo Guerrero & Atlantis on opposite sides.
Seuxis (and Silueta) went to Japan in mid April and were supposed to be there for three months, so this seems about right for when she should be back. I would’ve guessed Lluvia or Goya would’ve been headed over their next, but it doesn’t appear so.

1) IWRG Gym vs Villanos Gym [Copa High Power]

5) Hijo de LA Park, Trauma I, Ultramán Jr. vs ?, Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Hijo del Dr. Wagner Jr.
6) Silver Kain vs Electroshock [IWRG HEAVY]
More likely to actually appear in their matches: Gringo Loco or Averno?
I should go fill in the draw for the fourth match already.
Mystery man in the semimain is another junior.

6) Samurai del Sol vs Drastik Boy, Zumbi, Violento Jack, Shiima Xion
Usual card. The Women’s title is new, the Academia championship is vacant.
PdM (SUN) 07/24/2011 Centro Banamex
1) Turbo vs Black Thunder
2) Celestial & Cósmico vs Mini Talisman & Mr. Aguilita
3) Hijo de LA Park, Tony Rivera, Zumbi vs Bestia 666, Pesadilla, Radge
4) Casandro vs X-Fly [MEX HEAVY]
5) Marco Corleone, MVP, Shelton Benjamin vs Damián 666, el Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Halloween
I know the guys in the opener have had that match a lot of times, but the Perros del Mal minis are quickly catching up.
If you are rooting for X-Fly in that title match, you are wrong.
Shelton’s worked for Perros previously, but MVP is making his debut.
