CMLL has a big preview of the first round Gran Alternativa. It may change by the time you read this, but the Gaceta version had links back to the luchawiki this morning (having taken the table from that page.) I have many thoughts about that, but I don’t think any of them are interesting. They did introduce a typo and we have enough bad information on the wiki already.
Relevant Gran Alternativa thought: it took me a couple days, but I finally realized Sombra & Oro Jr. teaming because they’re both essentially doing the same character – Sombra was pushed as the New Oro for his first few years, and that’s where the Sombra name (“he’s a shadow of Oro”) comes from. I like their chances now.
CMLL also teased being on TV Azteca…but it’s for an interview on a late night show, not new TV. This at least the third difference appearance on a TV Azteca show in the last few months and everyone seems to be figuring they’ll have a show on an Azteca channel eventually, but it hasn’t happened yet.
Rob has highlights of CMLL 05/24/13.
Interview from Box y Lucha with Guerrero Maya Jr. about the start of his career.
An interview with the owner of Arena Aficion about it’s 62 years.
CMLL (TUE) 02/04/2014 Arena Mexico
1) Pequeño Halcón & Último Dragoncito vs Mercurio & Pequeño Warrior
2) Oro Jr., Soberano Jr., Starman vs Disturbio, El Rebelde, Hijo del Signo
3) Fuego, Hombre Bala Jr., Súper Halcón Jr. vs Espiritu Negro, Guerrero Negro Jr., Shigeo Okumura
4) La Máscara vs Vangellys [lightning]
5) Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr., Máximo vs Euforia, Niebla Roja, Virus
6) Rey Cometa, Rush, Titán vs Cavernario, Felino, Mr. Niebla
Fun main event. Barbaro Cavernario may be having his name shorted or changed, as he’s listed as Cavernario on the lineup.
Tercera is Espiritu Negro’s Arena Mexico match debut (though he’s made it in the ring with Rey Cometa prior.)
CMLL (TUE) 02/04/2014 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) El Divino & Virgo vs Demonio Rojo & Exterminador
2) Astral, Eléctrico, Stukita vs Demus 3:16, Pequeño Violencia, Pierrothito
3) Stigma, Stuka Jr., Tritón vs Boby Zavala, Camorra, Sangre Azteca
4) Mistico, Valiente, Volador Jr. vs Morphosis, Mr. Águila, Olímpico
5) La Sombra vs Averno
Sombra versus Averno should be really good. 52MX has been inconsistent on the Guadalajara match – it may be a ‘no repeated luchadors’ issue – but I believe the tercera would air on that channel (so the gone from DF Camorra makes TV!)
IWRG FILL (TUE) 02/04/2014 Arena Naucalpan
1) Black Niko, Chicanito, Voltar vs Mercenario, Skanda, Ultimo Caballero
2) Payaso De Plata, Payaso Extreme, Skull Metal vs Muerte Infernal, Psique, Versus

5) Alfa, Dragón Celestial, Fulgor I, Imposible, Omega, Power Bull, Seiya, Sky Ángel vs Aztlan, Destino, Jorge Kebrada, Kanon, Onix, Operativo X, Prodigo, Vertize [cibernetico]
Gym FILL (Black Terry) vs Gym Skayde
This is the 32nd Toreno FILL. Show may air on LAS eventually. Main event should be good, it’s always fun to see which of the lesser known guys are really good.
FULL (SAT) 04/05/2014 Arena Metropolitana, Tuxtla Gutiérrez, Chiapas
1) Brillantina, Cradle, Sexi Flor vs ?, Bugambilia, Vertigo
2) Laredo Kid &
Laredo Kid Brother Super Laredo vs Murcy Jr. & New Fire Jr.
3) Granda Man vs Hijo de Máscara Año 2000, Capitan Furia [mask, hair]
4) Octagón & Tinieblas Jr. vs Dr. Wagner Jr. & Fuerza Guerrera
5) Sin Cara vs ?
I guess he (or his legal people) agreed to another Sin Cara show. No opponent announced, probably because they’re waiting for something else to announce. Octagon has been complaining on Twitter about being left off AAA TV tapings, so seeing him on a show with Dr. Wagner is interesting.
