TxT (SAT) 04/27/2013 Gimnasio Juan De La Barrera [Black Terry Jr. (flickr)Estrellas del RingThe GladiatoresYahoo! Deportes]
1) Hijo de Pirata Morgan & Pirata Morgan Jr. b Golden Magic & Poseidón (Laguna)
Golden Magic & his partner replaced Rayo Tapatios. His partner was originally listed as Triton, then Poseidon on Yahoo and EdR, and Principe Celeste on the Gladiatores. He’s originally listed as Triton, is listed as from Torreon and a Dr. Wagner Jr. student. Piratas took 1/3.
2) Esther Moreno & Rossy Moreno b Chik Tormenta & Diosa Maya
Morenos took 1/3.
3) Súper Muñeco, Súper Pinocho, Súper Ratón b Black Terry, Scorpio Jr., Shu el Guerrero
Trio Fantastia took 2/3. Shu el Guerrero and Super Muneco feuded, Muneco pinning Guerrero with a casita. Mask challenges followed, yet again. Muneco was fighting on a hurt knee.
4) Angel Blanco Jr. & Cien Caras Jr. b Fuerza Guerrera & Pirata Morgan [Trofeo Angel Blanco, semifinal]
5) Rayman & Saruman b Dinamic Black & Imposible [Trofeo Angel Blanco, semifinal]
6) Rayman & Saruman b Angel Blanco Jr. & Cien Caras Jr. [Trofeo Angel Blanco, final]
Blanco gave his opponents credit for a win and added a pointless mask challenge.
7) Dr. Wagner Jr., El Hijo Del Santo, El Hijo del Solitario b Derek Sanders, Oliver John, Shaun Ricker
Team Mexico took 1/3. Oliver John gave Santo a piledriver after the mat.

No LA Park on the show, but a poster is already out listing Dr. Wagner Jr. vs LA Park for the next TxT show on 05/11. Hope they bring the flammable chairs. Odd they’d have Santo beat Migra twice, and then still try to do a big angle with Santo getting laid out after the fact.

CMLL (SUN) 04/28/2013 Arena Mexico [@therealfredo, CMLL, Yahoo! Deportes]
***Kids Day Show***
1) Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Violencia, Pequeño Warrior b Eléctrico, Pequeño Halcón, Stukita
Electrico replaced Shockercito. Rudos took 1/3.
2) Fuego, Pegasso, Tritón b Cancerbero, Raziel, Virus
Tecnicos took 1/3, Triton pinning Virus in the third.
3) Amapola b Estrellita [lightning]
Amapola won clean with the Devil’s Wings.
4) Guerrero Maya Jr., Máscara Dorada, Super Porky b Puma, Rey Bucanero, Tiger
Rey Bucanero replaced Mr. Aguila, who was listed as working an indy show which started around the same time as this one. Tecnicos took 2/3. Bucanero broke up a Puma pin in the third, leading to to an argument. Tiger started to play peacemaker, but then superkicked his brother. Tecnicos took advantage for the win. Rudos argued again after the match, with Tiger again siding with Bucanero.
5) Diamante Azul, Rush, Shocker b Euforia, Negro Casas, Niebla Roja
Tecnicos took 1/3.
6) Mistico DQ Volador Jr.
Volador took fall 1 with the backcracker. Mistico took fall 2 with a torito after being dominated for a lot of the fall. Third fall was a long bit of near falls, as usual. Mistico got La Mistica II on, but Volador battled and Mistico had to let go for naerly being pinned. Mistico went for the orignal La Mistica (again, slower than the original), but Volador escaped and pulled his mask off. Referee Rafael el Maya complained and got kicked. Volador again called Mistico a weak copy, while Mistico insisted he had heart and victories. Mask match challenge was made.

The barricades of the last few years were not present, and the ring apron was all white. Attendance might have been up a little; the cheaper (farther) segments seemed to be more full. The Bucnaero/Tiger/Puma bit felt like a storyline for El Luchador, and this is the time of year where material has been taped. However, on the last season of El Luchador, they dropped any problems between them – they were cheerfully playing video games against Tiger & Puma other on one episode. I dunno. (Maybe this is the start of a longer story.)

CMLL (SUN) 04/28/2013 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [@acogdl]
1) Demonio Maya & Espectrum b Idolo & Virgo
Rudos took 2/3.
2) Sky Kid & Smaker b Mr. Trueno & Rey Trueno
Brothers vs brothers. Tecnicos took 1/3 to win the match.
3) Ángel de Oro, Gallo, Stuka Jr. b Maléfico, Namajague, Ráfaga
Stuka beat Rafaga to take the match, tecnicos 2/3.
4) Leo b Sangre Azteca [OCCIDENTE WELTER]
Leo came in as champion. Leo took the first with a tapatia, Sangre Azteca took the second with his low blow dropkick, and Sangre fouled Leo in the third for a DQ. Leo keeps the title. Second known defense
5) Bárbaro Cavernario b Rey Cometa [super libre]
Rey Cometa took the first, then was DQed in the second for unspecified reasons (match had been listed as super libre.) Namajague distracted Cometa in the third, allowing Barbaro to beat Cometa for the big upset.
6) Azteca de Oro & El Hippie b Acertijo & Sádico [mask, hair]
Rudos took the first, and had Azteca de Oro beat in the second. Hippie beat both rudos to keep the tecnicos alive. Azteca de Oro pulled the same save in the third, giving the tecnicos the win. Sadico lost his hair, while Acertijo was revealed to be Raúl Rodíguez Santacruz. No mention of age or years, but he’d been wrestling here for the last four and half years.

Xtreme Tiger is headed to IWC, a Pittsburgh indy promotion (run at least in part by Xema Ion, I think I heard.) My biggest regret of the ChilangaMask show is not trying to get definite word on the spelling of Extreme/Xtreme’s name.

Rob has highlights of 11/13/06 AAA in Irapuato, 11/18/06 AAA in Cuernavaca, and CMLL 09/17/12.

LuchaWorld has the latest LuchaWorld podcast, and KrisZ’s news update. I never did get that email, so I must be free and clear.
