1) Molotov & Sensei b Apocalipsis & Inquisidor
2) La Vaquerita, Tiffany, Zeuxis b Dalis la Caribeña, Estrellita, Luna Mágica
Estrellita shot off streamers before the match.
3) Delta b Boby Zavala [lightning]
Delta won with a moonsault. Delta was bleeding significantly thru the top of his mask during the match, unsure how he was hurt.
4) Namajague, Rey Bucanero, Tiger b Máscara Dorada, Rey Cometa, Stuka Jr.
Rudos took 2/3. Namajague snuck in a foul on Mascara Dorada.
5) Averno b Titán [MEX WELTER]
Seconds were Mascara Dorada and Rodolfo Ruiz (Averno’s father.) Averno took falls 1/3 to keep the title in the usual quick early falls/long last fall format. Averno dodged a Titan tope in the third fall, and Titan crashed hard. Averno threw him in and laid on top for the win. Titan was strechered out. Averno’s first defense.
6) Atlantis, Máximo, Thunder DQ Mr. Niebla, Niebla Roja, Pierroth
Niebla fouled and pulled off Thunder’s mask for the DQ. Niebla Roja needed medical help after taking a Thunder chokeslam.

Mistico would often miss a tornillo to the outside and get pulled back in to be pinned when CMLL needed to have him lose a match but wanted to protect him. The title match finish might have been the same thing.

Crossing fingers for a Mascara Dorada/Namajague feud.

CMLL (TUE) 07/09/2013 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [@acogdl]
1) Mr. Trueno & Rey Trueno b Metatrón & Virgo
Rudos took 2/3
2) Arkángel de la Muerte, Ráfaga, Skándalo b Leo, Starman, Stigma
Rudos took 1/3.
3) Goya Kong b Princesa Blanca
One fall match. Goya Kong used a middle rope splash for the win.
4) Gallo, Guerrero Maya Jr., Super Porky b Olímpico, Psicosis, Sangre Azteca
Gallo replaced Hijo del Fantasma. Porky pinned Psicosis.
5) Mistico, Shocker, Valiente DQ Felino, Mephisto, Volador Jr.
Tecnicos took 2/3, Volador pulling Mistico’s mask in the third. Mistico challenged him to a title match next week.

Next week’s singles match will probably end nearly the same way.

Lineups

CMLL (MON) 07/15/2013 Arena Puebla
1) Bam Bam & Shockercito vs Pequeño Olímpico & Pequeño Violencia
2) Estrellita, Luna Mágica, Marcela vs Amapola, Princesa Blanca, Princesa Sugheit
3) Máximo, Stuka Jr., Titán vs Dragón Rojo Jr., Pólvora, Rey Escorpión
4) Diamante Azul, Shocker, Super Porky vs Pierroth, Último Guerrero, Volador Jr.
5) Stigma vs Pegasso, Leono, Tigre Rojo Jr., Robin, Skándalo, Siki Ozama Jr., Disturbio, Espíritu Maligno, Inquisidor [cage, mask, hair]

Arena Puebla cage matches tend to end with local Puebla luchadors losing their mask (and often ending their Arena Puebla careers.) They’ve been hinting at Espiritu Maligno being the local who loses this time, probably to Stigma, but also went ahead and did that exact finish this week. They rarely do that two weeks in a row.

First time Bam Bam’s been in this arena in a year. Assuming he shows up.

AAA RCH (THU) 08/01/2013 Arena Naucalpan
1) Freelance & Seiya vs Alan Extreme & Fulgor I
2) Faby Apache, Fénix, Miss Gaviota vs Bugambilia, Pentagón Jr., Taya Valkyrie
3) Lolita vs Sexy Lady [bull terrier]
4) Hijo del Dr. Wagner Jr. vs Hijo de Máscara Año 2000, Decnnis, Veneno, Danny Casas, Saruman, Apolo Estrada Jr., Dinamic Black, Extreme Tiger, Golden Magic, Picudo Jr., Centvrión [Copa High Power]
5) Texano Jr. & Villano IV vs Chessman & Daga and Eterno & Súper Nova and Trauma I & Trauma II and Cien Caras Jr. & Hijo de Pirata Morgan [cage, hair, mask]

Main event is listed as a five way tag match, but is really last man in the cage loses their hair or mask. It seems like it’s either Eterno or Hijo de Pirata Morgan unless RCH is throwing around a lot of money. Hijo de Pirata Morgan just lost his mask, so maybe Eterno’s mohawk is not long for this world.
