CMLL (FRI) 07/13/2012 Arena Mexico [CMLL]
1) Höruz & Robin b Artillero & Súper Comando
2) Hombre Bala Jr., Stuka Jr., Super Halcon Jr. b Disturbio, Hijo del Signo, Nosferatu
Hijo del Signo replaced Bobby Zavala, Stuka replaced Metalico. Tecnicos took 1/3, Stuka pinning the returning the Nosferatu.
3) Estrellita, Goya Kong, Marcela DQ Princesa Blanca, Princesa Sugheit, Tiffany
Goya’s first match back here since losing her mask. Straight falls for the tecnicas, Tiffany getting DQed while attacking Marcela in the second. Marcela challenged Tiffany to a hair vs hair match, but Tiffany declined.
4) Diamante Azul, Sagrado, Shocker b Black Warrior, Dragón Rojo Jr., Ephesto
Looks like Warrior attacked Shocker after the match.
5) Atlantis & Titán b Euforia & Último Guerrero
Replaced Dragon Rojo vs Titan title match. Tecnicos yanked rudos masks and rolled them up for the win.
6) La Sombra, Marco Corleone, Rush b Averno, Mephisto, Volador Jr.
Sombra beat Volador, when Volador was overconfident and took a ‘rana.

Nosferatu is actually back, and probably taking Loco Max’s spot.

vacant championship

I never put a guess down for the cibernetico. I would’ve guessed Misterioso, but not Diamante. I’m thinking Misterioso, because Diamante as heavyweight champion is such an odd idea. Diamante is looking more Santo than ever on the poster.

Pirana is such a great name for a smaller rudo.
