CMLL (TUE) 07/08/2014 Arena México [CMLL]
1) Bengala & Molotov b Akuma & Cholo
2) Astral, Fantasy, Stukita b Mercurio, Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Olímpico
Tecnicos took 1/3.
3) Esfinge, Oro Jr., Star Jr. DQ Cancerbero, Metálico, Raziel
Rudos were DQed with Metalico took Oro Jr.’s mask again.
4) Puma b Black Panther [lightning]
Puma won with a foul.
5) Cavernario, Felino, Mr. Niebla b Blue Panther, Cachorro, Titán
Rudos took 1/3.
6) Atlantis, Rey Cometa, Valiente b Dragón Rojo Jr., Euforia, Pólvora
Polvora replaced Rey Escorpion (out a week with a stinger) on Monday. Tecnicos took 1/3. Polvora and Dragon Rojo had all sorts of problem and were fighting each other after the mask, with Polvora taking Dragon Rojo’s mask.
Dragon Rojo continues to be sad and confused on Twitter. He’s like anyone else trying to understand CMLL programming. (Juicio Final announcement today.)
The semimain repeats next week, so Cavernario’s title match may be ending up against Titan.
Great moments in the CMLL press department: the recap lists the rudos as winning the third, right above a picture of Tirantes raising Oro Jr.’s arm. (Trust the Twitter account.)
In addition to the Rey Escorpion injury noted above, CMLL.com states Pequeno Violencia will need surgery after tearing his patellar tendon last week. That recovery can take six months, so he may not be back until 2015. That leaves CMLL with only six healthy rudo minis: Pierrothito, Pequeno Olimpico, Pequeno Nitro, Demus 3:16, Mercurio and a very part time Pequeno Universo. They were probably bringing in someone to take Pequeno Warrior’s spot, and now definitely will.
CMLL (TUE) 07/08/2014 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [@acogdl]
1) Metatrón & Virgo b Ráfaga & Sádico
Tecnicos took 1/3.
2) Gallo & Leo b Artillero & Súper Comando
Gallo replaced Esfinge (double booked). Tecnicos took 1/3.
3) Boby Zavala, Olímpico, Sangre Azteca b Omar Brunetti, Sky Kid, Smaker
Rudos took 1/3, Zavala pulling Sky Kid’s mask to set up the win.
4) Máximo, Super Porky, Volador Jr. b Ephesto, Gran Guerrero, Pierroth
Ephesto replaced Polvora on Monday. Super Porky replaced Diamante Azul with no announcement. Tecnicos took 2/3.
5) La Máscara, La Sombra, Rush b Rey Bucanero, Shocker, Terrible
Indeseables took falls 1/3, La Mascara sneaking in a foul on Shocker.
Where do you think Diamante Azul went this year? I’m thinking World Cup. Meanwhile, I’m going to recap a Shocker versus La Mascara match in a few weeks. Some people make better decisions than others.
El Rey Network, a new cable network in the US, posted a lucha libre teaser on Twitter yesterday. What could it mean? Oh, right, that thing we all know it means. My hunch has been we’d get more firm info from the network on the AAA show sometime after the World Cup, and the World Cup ends this weekend. This teaser suggests they’re at least going to start talking about it soon.

CMLL (TUE) 07/15/2014 Arena México
1) Metatrón & Robin vs Inquisidor & Zayco
2) Hombre Bala Jr., Oro Jr., Súper Halcón Jr. vs El Rebelde, Hooligan, Metálico
3) Dragon Lee, Sagrado, Starman vs Okumura, Skándalo, Virus
4) Guerrero Maya Jr. vs Kamaitachi [lightning]
5) Black Panther, Blue Panther, Cachorro vs Puma, Tiger, Vangellys
6) Cavernario, Euforia, Mr. Niebla vs Máximo, Titán, Valiente
Titan/Cavernario and maybe Euforia/Valiente continue their feuds. Maximo and Niebla continue their affair.
Vangellys is not quite Negro Casas but semimain should still be good. 2/3/4 al have chances.
CMLL (TUE) 07/15/2014 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) El Brillante & El Divino vs Acertijo & Magnum
2) Soberano Jr., Star Jr., Stigma vs Demonio Maya, Demonio Rojo, Ráfaga
3) Omar Brunetti, Sky Kid, Smaker vs Boby Zavala, Olímpico, Sangre Azteca
4) Marco Corleone, Máscara Dorada, Super Porky vs Ephesto, Rey Bucanero, Terrible
5) La Máscara vs Shocker
Mascara Dorada returns! Maybe.
Maybe, after all this time, Mascara will be great and totally change my opinion on him. (It’s more unlikely than 7-1.)
Tercera is a rematch.
