Cavernario vs Hechicero in En Busca de un Idolo final, Myzteziz to Naucalpan

IWRG’s posted photos of last night’s show, but no results.

AAA lists a 07/02 show here (where IWRG are mentioned with their luchadors.) I’d assume that’s an RCH show – Invasion AAA is listed on the page. It’d be Myzteziz’s first match in the building since 2007, where he was also facing Black Warrior. Not sure if Bogeman will make the show. Averno and Warrior also haven’t been back here since 2007.

Last night’s CMLL Informa announced Caveranrio will face Hechiero in the final of the En Busca de un Idolo tournament this Friday. The announcement is at the very end of the show (with JCR dragging it out for non existent rating points.)

All four finalists were on stage for the announcement. No one was particularly surprised when Hechicero was announced first, but it seemed like the luchadors did not know which one had finished second until it was announced. (The production people were tipped off, they accidentally went to this close up of Cavernario before his name was announced.) Cavernario and Hechicero hyped up the match and were respectful towards each other to end the show.

The final point standings

250 Hechicero (31 week 3 fan poll)
202 Cavernario (40)
198 Dragon Lee (32)
195 Cachorro (37)

The fan poll points don’t fit with the results we saw. Hechicero had the 1st amount of votes, but was given the fourth amount of points. That doesn’t really change anything since Hechicero was already in. Everyone else is in the same order and actually closer than I estimated given their separation in raw votes – the exact numbers are off, but the outcome does not seem like it changed. Cavernario would’ve been the final any way.

It’s possible CMLL might have finally solved the problem of people voting multiple times, but it would’ve required rewriting the voting script they’ve used the last few years on the fly, and only right before the finish (when it really didn’t affect anyone but Hechicero, and when CMLL hasn’t done anything like that previously.) It’s more likely CMLL just decided what numbers they wanted or they did some weird inexplicable math. CMLL’s done weird inexplicable math with the poll results every time, but they’ve almost always kept the order the same – until now.

I would prefer a system where someone advances based simply on win/loss. I actually got that system this year. These four had the four best records in the first round, and Cavernario and Hechicero had the best record in the second round (2-1). Those wins made a huge difference: had Cachorro or Dragon Lee won last Friday, they would be wrestling this Friday.

Cavernario has the best record overall (7-3) and his only loss this round was a disqualification loss to Cachorro after he had already won that match. (Note that Cachorro beat Cavernario both rounds, and then throw that note in the trash because it’ll never be brought up again.) Cavernario’s the guy CMLL is picking when they can make that sort of decision, and they get to make that sort of decision on Friday.

(for the second straight week, CMLL used my video of Informa for their Facebook.)

Last night had a double edition of Tercera Caida. The first show had Ludark as guest, the second included the Mexican Powers. There’s even one two after the show videos for about two and half hours of video.

Sin Cara drew a full house to Arena Aficion Tuesday, teaming with La Parka to beat Silver King & Averno. That appears to be his first match in the building since December 2009. The mystery luchadora I thought might be someone new coming in turned out to be Mascara Ano 2000 Jr., who does not appear to be a woman.

La Park & Cibernetico were part of the Carnaval Carolina in Charlotte this weekend. Parka is quoted as saying “all of AAA will be in the US this year” and Cibernetico says he’ll have a match in the US soon.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update and a recap of this week’s En Busca de un Idolo.

Some of Bolivia’s Los Cholitas appear to be part of a tour package.

AAA has a lineup for September already! The summer is moving fast.

Lucha Libre in Japan

Jinzo, Super Crazy, Nieto del Santo (back for the summer) and Rocky Lobo made it to NOAH. Rocky Lobo brought a few masks.

Stardom officially announced Star Fire as working 5 Star GP 2014 tournament. It’s a normal league, with two blocks of five wrestlers, running from August 24 to September 23. Dark Angel participated last year.

Wrestling New Classic essentially shut down yesterday, with all their male wrestlers moving to Wrestle-1. Hijo del Pantera, who’s been training in WNC the last couple of years, had also already been working for Wrestle-1 so it’s really not much of a change for him. The women wrestlers are said to be moving to REINA, but REINA was barely running any shows before WNC partnered with them to prop them up. There’s already been 2-4 times where it seemed like REINA was going to stop running shows and they kept going on, so I supposed they will here too.



CMLL (TUE) 06/24/2014 Arena México
1) Metatrón & Molotov vs Camorra & Zayco
2) Hombre Bala Jr., Soberano Jr., Súper Halcón Jr. vs Canelo Casas, Disturbio, Hijo del Signo
3) Estrellita, Goya Kong, Lluvia vs Dalys, Tiffany, Zeuxis
4) Gallo © vs Arkángel de la Muerte [FULL HEAVY]
second defense.
5) Stuka Jr., Super Porky, Tritón vs Hechicero, Rey Bucanero, Terrible
6) Fuego, Máximo, Valiente vs Kráneo, Mr. Águila, Ripper

Mr. Aguila in a main event! I’m sure that’ll go great. Gallo and Arkangel finally have their title match, which Arkangel actually has to win at some point. Hechicero is working the semimain, but it’s tough to know that that means for him outside Martes de Nuevo Valores. Zeuxis/Marcela feud not existent.


LI (FRI) 07/11/2014 Arena Querétaro
1) Esther Moreno & Lady Apache vs Miss Janeth & Tania
2) Ojo De Tigre & Viento Negro vs Rambo & Shu el Guerrero
3) Asteroide, Gato Rodriguez, Jinete Del Espacio, Rey Cometa Sr. vs Dr. Darkman, Furia Dorada, Universitario, Zarpa De Tigre
4) Aguila Solitaria, Kendo, Pantera vs Fuerza Guerrera, Negro Navarro, Scorpio Jr.
5) Cien Caras, Máscara Año 2000, Universo 2000 vs Canek, El Fantasma, Villano IV

All legends show, including Queretaro legends in the tercera. (The current Rey Cometa is meant to be Rey Cometa Jr., but the Jr. got dropped last decade.)

Canek turned 62 today. We don’t have a birthdate for Fantasma (he’s a ghost, it’s hard) but the average age of everyone else in that main event is 56.6. I’m sure they’ll put on a fascinating athletic competition.

***CrazyMania IV***
1) ? vs ??
2) Zoom Driver b Yelmo 2000, Angel Zodical, Ángel Espacial, Silver Metal, Kid
No winner listed.
3) Escorpion Negro NC La Chona
Gigante Karnov ran in and attacked both men.
4) Pesadilla b Rex Estampida [ruleta de la muerte, quarterfinal]
5) Artikus b Serpiente Azteca [ruleta de la muerte, quarterfinal]
6) Ultratumba b Estrella Blanca Jr. [ruleta de la muerte, quarterfinal]
7) Rolling Boy b Hardman [ruleta de la muerte, quarterfinal]

11) Crimson Wraith, Gigante Karnov, Naruto b Amo de la Noche, Lanzeloth, Sangre Guerrera
12) Rex Estampida b Hardman [ruleta de la muerte, final, mask]
Hardman is Arnold Ovando Castillo, Tulancingo, 24 years old, 4 years a wrestler.
13) Violento Jack © b Super Crazy and Crazy Boy [DTU]
No Aeroboy (in CZW instead) and maybe not an expolsive match, but made a DTU title match. Crazy hardcore match with Gigante Karnov wandering thru and throwing Crazy Boy into lightubes that were also on fire (?) Violento Jack beat Super Crzy while Crazy Boy was out of the ring. Violento Jack retained his title.

Ring was a bit away from the fans, but it looked like a big crowd. Random tall guy coming in and beating up everyone feels out of the UWA playbook, but I’m not sure who plays Canek here. (Possibly Canek.)

CMLL (TUE) 06/17/2014 Arena México [CMLL]
1) Bengala & Leono b Akuma & Apocalipsis
Tecnicos took 2/3.
2) Black Panther & Starman b Espiritu Negro & Guerrero Negro
Tecnicos took 1/3.
3) Amapola, Dalys, Zeuxis b Estrellita, La Vaquerita, Marcela
Rudas took 1/3, Zeuxis beat Marcela.
4) Arkángel de la Muerte, Hechicero, Misterioso Jr. b Cachorro, Dragon Lee, Gallo
Rudos took 1/3, Arkangel pulling Gallo’s mask and beating him. Arkangel wants a title rematch. Gallo wants Arkangel’s mask.
5) Ángel de Oro, Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr. DQ Cavernario, Felino, Herodes Jr.
Tecnicos took 2/3, the last when Cavernario fouled Oro and took his mask.
6) Fuego, Valiente, Volador Jr. b Ephesto, Gran Guerrero, Negro Casas
Tecnicos took 1/3.

The Gallo/Arkangel feud will not either go away or actually climax. It just keeps on going. The En Busca de un Idolo guys playing background figures to that feud is an ominous look at a bleak future.

On the other hand, it’s possible I’ve complained willed the Zeuxis/Marcela into existence. Or it’s just going as nowhere as Zeuxis/Estrellita.

CMLL (TUE) 06/17/2014 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Acertijo & Demonio Rojo b Brillante & El Divino
Rudos took 2/3.
2) Leo, Metatrón, Sky Kid b Artillero, Magnum, Súper Comando
Tecnicos took 1/3.
3) Maléfico, Sangre Azteca, Virus b Rey Cometa, Stuka Jr., Tritón
Rudos took 2/3, with Malefico and Stuka trading all the falls.
4) La Máscara, Máximo, Super Porky b Kráneo, Mr. Águila, Olímpico
Tecnicos took 1/3. No mention of Mascara issues.
5) Atlantis, Marco Corleone, Titán DQ Euforia, Niebla Roja, Último Guerrero
Tecnicos took 1/3, when UG fouled Atlantis again.

I think CMLL is doing Atlantis & Ultimo Guerrero at the anniversary show just because I don’t want to imagine another year of them feuding.

En Busca de un Idolo estimated standings, as of 10:27 AM. (They closed the polls about an hour later.)

259 Hechicero (40 points in this week's fan polls)
199 Cavernario (37)
193 Dragon Lee (27)
192 Cachorro (34)

That’s using a strict ratio of points, which is not what they usually do. Cavernario pulled away a bit last night, to the point where I’d guess he’s more likely to be the final, but it’s still close enough the math could turn out another way (or more votes come before they close the poll.) CMLL should announce the finalists on today’s CMLL Informa (Terra, 5pm.)

CMLL added Stuka, Titan, Rey Cometa vs Polvora, Tiger, Puma to Friday’s show. That’s a good match in itself and great that it’ll air on Terra (before En Busca de un Idolo.) It also means Leyenda de Azul is more likely to be a cibernetico, which produces a better match than a CMLL one night tournament every time. Perhaps CMLL will make the format clear on Informa.

Rob has highlights of 03/25/14 CMLL, with the En Busca de un Idolo cibernetico.

An old interview with El Santo talking about his dealings with movie companies. It reads like business dealings seldom went smoothly.

Diosa Atena took Guerrera Nocturna’s mask.

ChilangaMask announced they’ll return 07/20 in Coliseo Coacalco, with Zoom Driver vs Carisma.




IWRG (SUN) 06/22/2014 Arena Naucalpan
1) Black Niko & Vampiro Metalico II vs Atomic Star & Power Bull
2) Alfa & Omega vs Anubis Black & Zurdog
3) Emperador Azteca, Imposible, Metaleon vs Canis Lupus, El Hijo del Diablo, Picudo Jr.
4) Relámpago & Súper Nova vs Oficial 911 & Oficial AK47
5) Hijo De Dos Caras, Máscara Sagrada, Veneno vs Fuerza Guerrera, Hijo de Máscara Año 2000, X-Fly

Mascara Sagrada appeared to turn the rudo last Sunday, appears to be a tecnico this Sunday. (The bigger shows seem to be an every other week thing.) IWRG will never run out of metallic vampires.


CMLL (TUE) 06/24/2014 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) El Divino & Leo vs Infierno & Ráfaga
2) Astral, Meteoro, Último Dragoncito vs Pequeño Olímpico, Pequeño Violencia, Pierrothito
3) La Vaquerita, Marcela, Silueta vs Amapola, La Seductora, Princesa Blanca
4) La Máscara, La Sombra, Rush vs Euforia, Niebla Roja, Shocker
5) Atlantis & Titán vs Gran Guerrero & Último Guerrero and Blue Panther & Cachorro and Cavernario & Mr. Niebla [Copa Express]

They’ve been advertising the 55th Anniversary shows all months, but Sunday’s a cage match and Tuesday’s a tournament, so I guess this is the week that counts. Atlantis & Titan are the hometown team in the main event.

Mephisto injury, Rey Escorpion defeats Atlantis, En Busca de un Idolo

CMLL (MON) 06/16/2014 Arena Puebla [Periodico Enfoque]
1) Águila Egipcia, Black Tiger, Tigre Rojo Jr. b Fuerza Chicana, Guerrero Espacial, Toro Bill Jr.
2) Astral, Asturiano, Bam Bam, Meyer, Stukita b Blue Center, Demus 3:16, Pequeño Warrior, Pierrothito, Saurón [cibernetico]
Cibernetico came down to Asturiano versus Pequneo Warrior, with Warrior pulling Asturiano’s mask to win. Mask vs hair challenges.
3) Amapola, Princesa Blanca, Zeuxis DQ Estrellita, Goya Kong, Princesa Sugheit
Rudos took 1/3, the last when Esterllita accidentally dropkicked Tirantes for the DQ.
4) Kráneo, Ripper, Shocker b La Máscara, Marco Corleone, Stigma
Stigma replaced Rush. Shocker feuded with Mascara instead, fouling him and pulling his mask to win.
5) Rey Escorpión © b Atlantis [CMLL LH]
Rey Escorpion kept his title. 10th defense, second in this building recently.

Stigma replacing Rush is a bit of drop off, even in Puebla. Odd they did DQ in the women’s match since the matches around them were also going to have iffy finishes.

Tonight’s CMLL Arena Mexico main event was scheduled to be Mephisto defending the Mexican National Light Heavyweight Championship against Valiente, a rematch from about a month and a half in Guadalajara. That match is now off, because Mephisto suffered a knee injury while wrestling in Oaxaca over the weekend. There’s no word about how long Mephisto will be out., CMLL indicated he’d be a getting an MRI today. Knee injuries can sideline a wrestler for a few weeks to most of a year, as we just saw with Angel de Oro.

The title situation is a bit peculiar. CMLL’s had the champion forfeit the title to the challenger in other situations where the champion was hurt and couldn’t defend (that’s how Rush & La Mascara won the tag titles), but maybe the ruling is CMLL announced the change ahead of time so Mephisto’s not obligated to give the belt up. CMLL may be guessing Mephisto will be back soon, and they may want to keep Mephisto with a belt so he’s less likely to have thoughts about joining his friend Averno elsewhere.

If Mephisto is out for any significant amount of time, it’ll be the second championship in limbo. Mistico’s still the CMLL World Middleweight Champion, and there’s no sign of anything happening with that belt.

The new main event is a random trios match: Ephesto, Gran Guerrero and Negro Casas vs Fuego, Valiente and Volador. Cachorro is among those added to the card, so all four En Busca de un Idolo finalists will be in action.

The En Busca de un Idolo standings, as of 10AM this morning

82747 Hechicero
76273 Cavernario
67424 Cachorro
54891 Dragon Lee

It appears CMLL might have done something to block ballot stuffing – maybe limiting to only 100 votes per IP address – but only after Cavernario gained tens of thousands of votes yesterday. It’s impossible to figure out how CMLL is going to handle math at any time, but my estimate is Cavernario has enough votes to be second only if they give him his missing points from last week. I guess it would be Cachorro otherwise, but I’m really not sure. CMLL might have add votes to Cavernario themselves, but they can much easier select the second finalist by doing the votes->points conversation any way they’d like.

AAA’s television show announced they’d be taping TV on 07/05 in Nayarit (the RingRock show) and 07/21 in Tehuacan. There’s a weekend off there, but they’ll be ahead of schedule so it all works out and the resort show should be a one week taping. Tehuacan is four TV shows out from TripleMania; that’s a place where a big angle might go.

Faby is concered about Taya; Faby’s a better wrestler than Taya and a better ruda than Taya if she needs to be. Faby’s more concerned about Sexy Star getting involved, and hopes the rudas are too over confident to bother cheating. There’s also a Faby in a video interview saying the same sort of thing.

Terra’s preview for Friday lists all the matches as airing – but that’s probably because someone’s just told the person doing it to list the first four matches as airing and he doesn’t know it’ll be different. It’s almost like CMLL is bad at communicating.

CMLL (MON) 06/23/2014 Arena Puebla
1) Black Tiger, Robin, Star Jr. vs Espíritu Maligno, King Jaguar, Rey Apocalipsis
2) Asturiano vs Pequeño Warrior
3) Sagrado, Stigma, Tritón vs Morphosis, Olímpico, Virus
4) La Máscara, Marco Corleone, Rush vs Kráneo, Negro Casas, Shocker
5) Máscara Dorada, Valiente, Volador Jr. vs Rey Bucanero, Terrible, Vangellys

Mascara Dorada exists again! Hope he’s enjoying his time off. Possibly a week or two from a Shocker/Mascara match. Warrior in a singles match seems like an iffy idea, but maybe Asturiano can just win to end the feud and they’ll give him something better to do. Rey Apocalipsis is a new name – I don’t see him on the Puebla indies either. It doesn’t quite make sense to have a Rey Apocalipsis when you already have an Apocalipsis, but Apcocalipsis is down to about one match every three weeks – he’s the one who should be concerned here.

Titan beats world champ, Oficials new tag champs, Guadalajara cage match

CMLL (SUN) 06/15/2014 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [@acogdl]
1) El Yaqui & Satara b Dr. Frezzer & El Tapatío
Match was not at all what was listed (Brillante & El Divino vs Acertijo & Demonio Rojo.) Rudos took 1/3.
2) Explosivo b Jocker
3) Espectrum & Ráfaga b Exterminador & León Blanco
Rudos took 1/3
4) Boby Zavala, Cavernario, Demonio Maya, Sádico b Black Metal, Esfinge, Gallo, Rey Cometa
Tecnicos were DQed in the first when Esfinge fouled Demonio Maya. Rudos stole the second. Challenges followed.
5) Goya Kong & Silueta b Tiffany & Zeuxis
Tecnicas took 2/3.
6) Titán © b Dragón Rojo Jr. [MEX WELTER]
Titan took falls 2/3 to keep the title. Titan’s fourth defense.

Titan beats the world champion, so he totally gets a world title shot – unless the title distinctions are all meaningless, then I guess he doesn’t. Wonder which way it’ll go.

Four match is actually setting up a cage match next week.

IWRG (SUN) 06/15/2014 Arena Naucalpan [Black Terry Jr. (Flickr), The Gladiatores]
1) Black Terry, Imposible, Metaleon b Guerrero Mixtico, Hip Hop Man, Tony Rivera
2) Bombero Infernal, Dr. Cerebro, Golden Magic b Astro Rey Jr., Canis Lupus, Eterno
Bombero replaced Pantera (who was in Guadalajara)
3) Oficial 911 & Oficial AK47 b Apolo Estrada Jr. & El Hijo del Diablo © [IWRG IC TAG]
In the third, Diablo snuck in a foul on 911, but AK47 snuck in and returned the favor and the Oficials took the win. Oficial 911 & Oficial AK47 are the Gringos VIP fall on first defense.
4) Máscara Sagrada, Relámpago, Súper Nova b Demon Clown, Trauma I, Trauma II
Dos Caras was honored before the match. Tecnicos took 2/3.
5) Dr. Wagner Jr. & Hijo De Dos Caras DQ LA Park & Pirata Morgan
Usual crowd brawl with Park & Wagner. Park & Morgan took the first, Wagner & Dos the second. During the third, a person in a LA Park mask (probably meant to be the same one as two weeks ago) ran in and attacked the actual Wagner. That appears to be the end of the match, though it’s not clear. Fake LA Park unmasked as – Mascara Sagrada! Demon Clown came out to be helped, with Demon, Park and Wagner all apparently allied and Pirata Morgan going with the tecnicos in the fight. Everyone made challenges – which turned out to be a cage match for the IWRG Heavyweight Title for some reason.

Really big turn out for this show, close to full or actually full judging from the pictures. Maybe the largest crowd since Wagner and Park were here together back in October? As absurd as the cage match bit is – and I still don’t know how the heavyweight title gets included – they should do another strong turnout just based on the names.

Mascara Sagrada explains his action to +LuchaTV (he’d like to be feuding with LA Park), while Dr. Wagner talks up his team with Pirata Morgan. This is what happens you don’t move when LA Park is coming your way.

Rey Escorpion defends the CMLL Light Heavyweight championship in Puebla. Escorpion is probably retaining. The bigger mystery is if Atlantis takes Aguijon Mortal.

Felina Metalika won the new Sanchez Women’s Championship at Arena Neza on Sunday.

Segunda Caida reviews El Hijo del Santo vs Atlantis.

Emperador Azteca has recovered from his injury, wants revenge on Impossile.

Tacubo continues his anti-bullying program.

Random factoid: Queretaro’s “Movimiento Ciudadano” party made 24 thousand pesos running a WWE show in 2013.

Tercera Caida is two hours this week?




IWRG (WED) 06/18/2014 Arena Naucalpan
1) Galaxy vs Zurdog
2) Látigo & Sky Ángel vs Hijo De La Bestia & Kaling Black
3) Dragón Celestial & Emperador Azteca vs Atomic Star & Electro Boy
4) Alan Extreme, Ciclon Black, Dr. Cerebro vs Canis Lupus, Hip Hop Man, Tony Rivera
5) Black Terry & Golden Magic vs Fuerza Guerrera & Guerrero Mixtico

A Wednesday show. Magic/Fuerza still pair off. Unsure why Neza Boy Ciclon Black is on the tecnico side now, I’ve clearly missed something. Atomic Star’s first unmasked match here.









CMLL (SUN) 06/22/2014 Arena Coliseo
1) Magnus & Metatrón vs Camorra & Inquisidor
2) Angelito, Bam Bam, Eléctrico vs Mercurio, Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Olímpico
3) Fuego, Oro Jr., Pegasso vs Metálico, Raziel, Virus
4) Blue Panther vs Ephesto [lightning]
5) Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr., Stuka Jr. vs Kamaitachi, Puma, Shigeo Okumura
6) Máximo, Super Porky, Volador Jr. vs Dragón Rojo Jr., Pólvora, Rey Escorpión

Oro/Metalico feud returns. Semimain could be good, and the lightning match is a old Lagunero fight.

No sign of Marcela & Seductora. I thought Marcela might have gotten hurt on a dropkick right before the finish, maybe the weird DQ was just a way of getting out of the match.


CMLL (SUN) 06/22/2014 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) El Ídolo & Javier Cruz Jr. vs Ángel del Mal & El Yaqui
2) Explosivo & William Rock vs Évola & Jocker
3) El Brillante & Virgo vs Acertijo & Demonio Rojo
4) León Blanco, Sky Kid, Smaker vs Magnum, Mr. Trueno, Rey Trueno
5) Atlantis, La Máscara, Titán vs Felino, Negro Casas, Rey Bucanero
6) Gallo vs Cavernario, Rey Cometa, Boby Zavala, Black Metal, Sádico, Esfinge, Demonio Maya [cage, hair, mask]

Sadico (who has an Eterno mohawk) and Demonio Maya (who’s masked) seem like the most likely bets here. Remember when Felino and Rey Bucanero were feuding? CMLL doesn’t! That was even a Juicio Final caliber apuesta match…
