Segunda Caida has a review of the IWL show. SuperLuchas says the dark match included Gringo Loco, but it’s not the IWRG Gringo Loco. Black Terry Jr. has over 150 pictures.

Sunday’s show at Arena Aficion included Super Brazo teaming with possible psuedo-son Brazo Celestial and fans attacking Ludark Shaitan and Sexy Lady during their match.

The Arena Solidaridad show with Santo & Solitario drew around 400 people. There’s very short clips of the match on YouTube. No one’s paying for that mask match. They announced Chavo Guerrero, Colt Cabana, Carlito and LA Park for their anniversary show.

Rob posted highlight videos of AAA 02/04/11 and AAA 02/19/11 and older AAA – 02/28/09 Cuernavaca & 11/16/98 Leon.

CMLL in Japan

08/01 NJPW: 1) La Sombra [2] b Wataru Inoue [0] (swan dive firebird splash)
(show was on PPV)

I haven’t written about the expectations for this tournament for Sombra, becuase there really aren’t much. It’d be nice if he did will and, last year, NJPW’s own super junior heavyweight did very well in this same heavyweight tournament, but that’s a NJPW guy and the rules are different for outsiders. If Sombra can get 4-6 points (2 to 3 wins out of 9 matches), that’d be perfectly acceptable. Strong Man is probably going to do the same, but it doesn’t feel like it matters as much to him. He’s still going to be Strong Man if he wins them all, loses them all, or gets hit by an asteroid. Strong Man is indestructable!

NJPW kicked off this tour by hyping it’s 10/10 show, which will include an appearance by Ultimo Guerrero. That’s the same time as the Lucha Fiesta show, which explains a bit how they were able to get him. Too soon to know the match, though they do establish UG’s heavyweight credientials by mentioning his title defense over NJPW’s Hirooki Goto and hint towards a title match here.

Amapola vs Ayumi for the CMLL Women’s title has been set for September 18 in Japan.
