IWRG (SUN) 06/17/2012 Arena Naucalpan [Black Terry Jr. (flickr), Estrellas del Ring, The Gladiatores]
1) Alan Extreme & The Mummy b Dragón Celestial & Johnny Rivera
2) Douki & Eita b Centvrión & Charly Madrid
3) Chicano, Multifacético, Suicida b Dark Dragon, Espíritu, Tito Santana II
rematch from last week. Straight fall win for team IWRG when Espiritu fouled Dark Dragon by mistake.
4) Monster Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown b Head Hunter, Súper Nova, X-Fly
Match was supposed to be for the FdT’s IWRG trios titles. However, Damian did not show, sending Super Nova in his place. (Damian may have been in the US.) The commission declared the championship vacant, with a tournament to come. Clowns take 1/3. Murder Clown beat Head Hunter with a plancha.
5) Oficial 911 b Trauma II and Shadow Phoenix [losers advance]
Three way match, where the first two pinned would meet in a single fall mask match. Rudos worked together and went after Trauma II’s shoulder. Shadow submitted Trauma II, then 911 outsmarted Shadow to beat him and escape.
6) Trauma II b Shadow Phoenix [mask]
911 stuck around to help Shadow Phoenix, who continued going after Trauma’s shoulder. Trauma I, despite his hurt knee, got involved to counter the Oficial. Trauma II caught Shadow Phoenix in a head and arm submission for the win. Shadow Phoenix was unmasked as Ahihiko Inoue, from Tokyo, a 10 year vet. Oficial 911 warned the Traumas that the Oficials would yet get their masks.
Damian stuck around in AAA to drop their Trios titles and I think he’s still going to be in IWRG, so this is probably just an unfortunate miss. Still, I’m hyped for, like, an 64 team IWRG trios tournament to see what they’d come up with. Every school in Mexico gets their own team! (The actual ruling appears to be the Psycho Circus will face the winners of a tournament, keeping the title shot until opponents are determined.)
The Traumas are just two good old boys, a bit old school in their tastes, always staying just one step ahead of the law…that sounds familiar. Unfortunately, Angelico is Daisy Duke in that metaphor.
CMLL (SUN) 06/24/2012 Arena Coliseo
1) Bengala & Camaleón vs Camorra & Zayco
2) Aereo, Niño de Acero, Pequeño Halcón vs Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Universo 2000, Pequeño Violencia
3) Diamante, Dragon Lee, Triton vs Cancerbero, Niebla Roja, Raziel
4) Blue Panther, Super Porky, Sagrado vs Averno, Pólvora, Vangelis
5) Terrible vs Yujiro [CMLL HEAVY]
6) Marco Corleone, Máximo, Rush vs Kráneo, Olímpico, Psicosis
Terrible and Yujiro are fighting for CMLL’s heavyweight championship, which is not as important as the trio with a horrible win/loss record going against the trios champs. CMLL!
Valiente was originally in the fourth match, but they subbed in Sagrado about an hour later.
Tercera looks fun, will air on Terra.
The last time, Nino de Acero came in as a rudo, switched to the tecnico side without any explanation, was hurt trying a high risk move in Puebla, and didn’t wrestle again for three years. I don’t want to be an alarmist, but Nino de Acero has reappeared as a rudo and switched to the tecnico side without any explanation. Do not book this man in Arena Puebla!
CMLL (SUN) 06/24/2012 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Brillante vs Acertijo
2) Halcon de Plata & Sky Kid vs Espectrum & Infierno
3) Esfinge, Javier Cruz, Smaker vs Mr. Trueno, Rey Trueno, Taurus
4) Javier Cruz Jr. vs Leo, Barbaro Cavernario [hair]
5) Diamante Azul & Valiente vs Rey Escorpion & Último Guerrero
Shocker was in the main event here, but they moved Valiente into his place.
Semimain is three of the four guys in the hair match (Sadico lost last time), and they’re in the mood to do many hair matches on Sundays of late.
Taurus is the only DF undercard guy working the GDL underdcard this week, and UG happens to be in the main event.
