Polvora vs Dragon Rojo, Mascara vs Shocker

photo by Alexis Salazar/CMLL

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.

AAA posted the minis and Pentagon Jr. dark matches from Queretaro on their YouTube channel.

Lineups

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.

08/06 AAA TV Lineup (Teziutlan)


source: http://luchalibreaaa.com/images/stories/utilizadas/NuevoSitio/carteles/2014/Agosto/lucha-libre-aaa-rumbo-triplemania-teziutlan-puebla.jpg

(source)

AAA (WED) 08/06/2014 Plaza de Toros El Pinal, Teziutlan, Puebla
1) Ludxor, Niño Hamburguesa, Venum vs Carta Brava Jr., El Apache, Fresero Jr.
2) Dinastía, El Elegido, Faby Apache, Pimpinela Escarlata vs Demon Rocker, Mamba, Mini Charly Manson, Taya Valkyrie
3) Aerostar, Bengala, Drago vs Hijo del Fantasma, Pentagón Jr., Súper Fly
4) Angélico, Australian Suicide, Jack Evans vs Daga, Eterno, Steve Pain
5) Fénix, Myzteziz, Psycho Clown vs Averno, Black Warrior, Texano Jr.

Air Date: 08/09 – which means they’ll have to tape again before TripleMania? Which is a surprise because why not just make this two tapings and focus on the major show the next 11 days? Maybe there’s just another taping soon after?

Again, there’s something weird with the schedule. AAA taped three weeks of TV between Xalapa and the Hard Rock Hotel show, and there’s four weeks of TV. I guess they’re being pre-empted one week? Or there’s another taping in between to be announced? Or Mytzteziz won’t have his match announced on screen until 8 days before TripleMania unless they insert something? It’s all very strange, but AAA’s going to go four weeks without a taping unless another is announced.

This show is not strange. Third and fourth matches should be really good and other matches have chances. There doesn’t seem to be much news here – Texano and Psycho continue facing off, as do Aerostar and Super Fly and Faby and Taya – but it could still be a good matches.

Next taping is TripleMania?

Stigma vs Virus, Jarrett vs Electroshock, Park vs Wagner, ChilangaMask

CMLL (MON) 07/07/2014 Arena Puebla [Periodico Enfoque, Periodico Enfoque (fotos)]
1) Paris & Robin b Ares & Guerrero Espacial
Tecnicos took 2/3.
2) Blue Center, Fuerza Chicana, Hijo del Signo b Dragon Lee, Milenium, Tigre Rojo Jr.
Dragon Lee is listed as wrestling, though he’s missed every match since last Tuesday. Rudos took 1/3, with Blue Center using the ropes to beat Tigre Rojo.
3) Rey Cometa, Stigma, Stuka Jr. b Puma, Tiger, Virus
Tecnicos took 2/3, Stigma beating Virus and challenging for his title.
4) Cavernario, Ephesto, Mr. Niebla b Máximo, Titán, Tritón
Rudos took 1/3.
5) Euforia, Niebla Roja, Último Guerrero b Atlantis, Valiente, Volador Jr.
Guerreros took 1/3. UG fouled Atlantis in the third, Valiente pulled off UG’s mask in revenge, and Tirantes only saw Valiente’s mask pull so he DQed the tecnicos.

Stuka and Virus are set for next week. Blue Center and Tigre Rojo seems to be a feud going forward as well.

Today’s CMLL show should be back to the Dragon Rojo problems. He’s teaming up with a fellow Revolucionario – Polvora instead of Rey Escorpion, changed last night – and hasn’t fared too well with his partners of late. Valiente and Euforia also have issues from last week. The semimain includes first En Busca de un Idolo winner Titan versus current winner en Busca de un Idolo. Indeserables versus Bucanero, Terrible, Shocker main events in Guadalajara.

Other CMLL card changes include Dragon Lee being taken out of Sunday’s card, which makes me very skeptical he actually wrestled last night in Puebla. Magnus is added to that card, and Soberano moves up a match. Since Polvora is working Arena Mexico, Ephesto takes his spot in Guadalajara. Also, once again, Esfinge is booked in both Arena Mexico and Arena Coliseo Guadalajara again tonight. He’s surely in Arena Mexico and the Guadalajara crew may even know who’s replacing him, but the Guadalajara locals part of the CMLL.com lineups never get corrected.

AAA’s still teasing Jeff Jarrett versus Electroshock as a hair match, with Electroshock noting Mesias is still hurt so he’s taking up the fight for him. Should this match actually happen, which I have a hard time believing, Jarrett has to be beating Electroshock. Which would seem to mean Jarrett would’ve beat Mesias, and I don’t understand why AAA would do that so this is all confusing to me. (I don’t actually know why they’re doing that with Electroshock, except they’ve got nothing else to do with him, come to think of it.)

Vicente Viloni (real name Tomás Yankelevich), former lead tecnico of Argentina’s 100% Lucha, is now a hairdresser. The story they told at the close of the promotion was Viloni decided to retire and then the promotion fell apart, but he indicates it was the opposite order here. Viloni said he thought about opening a gym, but he’d need to be there all the time and he can work visiting sick children and birthday parties into his schedule easier if he’s cutting hair. (Hip Hop Man is doing better all the time.)

Dr. Wagner Jr.’s season of La Isla starts this weekend. Will he finish better than Shocker? (Shocker was on the first ones out when everyone else decided he was too much of a physical wreck to continue, so it’s an exceptionally low bar.) Enjoy how they mention Wagner being UWA champion but not so much AAA.

A SuperLuchas column on CMLL’s struggles suggests the UWA did not exist and I think implies TNA has a bigger effect on CMLL than AAA. Also, the problem for CMLL is people don’t know who Negro Casas is.

Lineup

IWRG (WED) 07/09/2014 Arena Naucalpan
1) Vampiro Metálico II vs Electro Boy
2) Capitán Muerte & Matrix Jr. vs Hijo De La Bestia & Zurdog
3) Payaso De Plata & Payaso Extremo vs Rayan & Spartan
main show debuts for the Payasos
4) Alan Extreme, Golden Magic, Metaleon vs Apolo Estrada Jr., Avisman, El Hijo del Diablo
5) Diva Salvaje, Dr. Cerebro, Veneno vs Canis Lupus, Eterno, Fuerza Guerrera [lumberjack strap]

Another Wednesday with more of the younger guys. Fuerza skews the average age. No idea why the main event is a lumberjack strap match. The last we saw Capitan Muerte, he was Bombero Infernal (aka Matrix Sr.) Someone else might have the name now.

No Sunday lineup as of yet. It’s possible they may be skipping a week, since the show here would normaly start not long after the World Cup final. Or it may just be IWRG putting up posters late. (Still, this is a strange Sunday to run Arena Mexico with a loaded card.)

CMLL (MON) 07/14/2014 Arena Puebla
1) Meyer, Milenium, Tigre Rojo vs Akrón, Espíritu Maligno, King Jaguar
Akron’s first match here since March.
2) Lluvia, Marcela, Princesa Sugehit vs La Seductora, Princesa Blanca, Tiffany
3) Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr., Tigre Rojo Jr. vs Blue Center, Boby Zavala, El Cavernario
4) Virus © vs Stigma [CMLL SL]
Virus’ 7th defense.
5) Atlantis, Valiente, Volador Jr. vs Euforia, Niebla Roja, Último Guerrero

Two televised defenses and three title matches total; it’s a busy year for Virus and it’s only July. It’s also not out of the question that Stigma gets a big win in his home Puebla arena. (It would be out of the question in any other location.) Tiger Rojo Jr. and Center get higher opportunities higher up than usual as well.

Rematch in the main event might be setting up a trios title match.

All Elite (SAT) 07/19/2014 Deportivo Morelos Cuajimalpa, Ciudad de México, Distrito Federal
1) Centvrión & Dinamic Black vs Emperador Azteca (IWRG) & Imposible
2) Rayman & Rey Horus vs Bestia 666 & Damián 666
3) Extreme Tiger & Huracan Ramirez Jr. vs Relámpago (Coahuila) & Zumbi
4) Dr. Wagner Jr. vs LA Park

Ahhh, that’s why the Tijuana guys are in. It’s probably not a great sign that the I’m only finding out about this show because there’s a listing for it on Ticketmaster; it could use some promotion.

ChilangaMask (SUN) 07/20/2014 Coliseo Coacalco, Coacalco, Estado de México
1) ? vs ??
2) Arez vs Hormiga
3) Tempestad vs Magnifico, Tóxico DF, Radge, Hip Hop Man, Tornado
4) Impulso vs Belial
5) Astro Rey Jr., Maverick Benji, Psico Kid vs Karma, Kronoz, Obscuro
6) Zoom Driver vs Carisma [30s Style]
7) Black Terry vs Aero Boy
8) Trauma I & Trauma II vs Mohicano Sr. & Piel Roja

Match order will change on the day of the show. Star power is way down after the falling out with CMLL and Ricky Marvin being in AAA, but they’ll just have to rebuild with indy guys.

LuchaMania Monterrey, Volador/Dragon, Coliseo tag title match

LM (SAT) 07/05/2014 Gimnasio Factores Mutuos, Monterrey, Nuevo León [@bantallerMigrejok (Facebook)Paty Reyes Viera (Facebook)]

11:44. 
2) Arez b Dralion
16:01
3) Tony Rodriguez b KaientaiErick OrtizKratozLow RiderAntonio Garza
14:10. Low Rider and Antonio Garza were added to the match. Tony Rodriguez and Erik Ortiz discussed a title match for the next show – which means there’s another show.
4) Charles Lucero b Black Terry
10:45
5) Dark Angel b Princesa Sugheit
15:45
6) Caifan b Rey Hechicero
33:42. Caifan asked for a shot at the Poder y Honor championship, which Hechicero agreed to.

This was the show LuchaMania Monterrey put on themselves. (Don’t expect a luchablog show this century.)  33 minutes of Caifan and Rey Hechicero sounds like it must’ve been great but the best sign was the building seemed to be pretty full and they were building to a next show – things must’ve gone OK.

Rudos took 2/3. The last fall was missed due to feed problems, but Metalico & Oro Jr. continue to feud and Metalico took Oro’s mask after the match.

Rudos took 1/3. Dragon Rojo showed no signs of a turn, and actually beat Volador in the third with a foul. That set up a (non-title) match for next week.

Better show than previous weeks, from what we saw. Feed problems are more frustrating when there’s only one live show a week. (Also frustrating: the insane amount of plugs for CMLL Informa & Juicio Final. About a plug every single fall.) Next week is back at Arena mexico.

4) León Blanco b Espectrum
Mask ripping; these two have been feuding. Leon won clean.
5) Titán b CachorroBlack PantherStuka Jr.GalloTerribleRey BucaneroCavernarioHechiceroMaléfico [cibernetico]
Battle royal set sides as Titán, Maléfico, Hechicero, Cavernario and Terrible vs El Gallo, Cachorro, Black Panther, Stuka and Rey Bucanero. Malefico and Stuka were out right away (foul/mask pull), followed by Cachorro (Terrible), Terrible (Black Panther), Hechicero (Black Panther), Black Panther (Cavernario), Gallo (Titan), Terrible listed again – must be Bucanero one of these times (via Cavernario), leaving teammates Titan and Cavernario. Titan beat Cavernario for the win.

Felino, Tiger, Olimpico and Veneno beat Guerrero Maya Jr., Valiente, Maximo and Heavy Metal in the main event of a show honoring Pierroth at Arena Lopez Mateos. Metal turned on his partners to join Felino and Tiger. Metal’s been working a few shows with his CMLL family, despite still being listed on the AAA site as part of their roster.

Latin Lover says that when his current stint on “Bailando por un Sueno” ends tonight, he’ll be looking for new work as an actor, a host, or even a luchador. (He’d prefer to find a non-luchador job.)

A column in Criterio Hidalgo is critical of Rush for being aggressive towards a ringside photographer, but one of the comments claim it was actually Mr. Niebla who caused the issue. Everyone, just be nicer to camera people.

The CEO of Televisa was in the crowd for Friday’s CMLL show. (He’d probably have better seats if there was something  more to that.)

Super Libre interviewed Malefico and luchadors from Arena Jalisco.

Lineups

CMLL (SUN) 07/13/2014 Arena México
1) Metatrón & Soberano Jr. vs Canelo Casas & Guerrero Negro Jr.
2) Dragon Lee, Sagrado, Tritón vs Misterioso Jr., Puma, Sangre Azteca
3) Ángel de Oro, Super Porky, Titán vs Rey Bucanero, Terrible, Vangellys
4) Delta & Guerrero Maya Jr. © vs Kamaitachi & Okumura [Arena Coliseo TAG]
Delta & Maya’s second defense.
5) Marco Corleone, Máximo, Valiente vs Cavernario, Felino, Mr. Niebla
6) Volador Jr. vs Dragón Rojo Jr.

I was just noting how CMLL never ever runs non-title singles matches as main events any more, so here’s a non-title singles main event. Oh well. (I would presume this means Volador is winning, or they would’ve just set it up for Dragon Rojo to defend his title.)

That and the tag title match have chances to be good. The rest of the show has good wrestlers in unfavorable positions for matches I’d like to see.

CMLL (SUN) 07/13/2014 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) El Tapatío vs El Piraña
2) Dr. Frezzer & Marvel vs El Yaqui & Satara
3) Explosivo & William Rock vs Évola & Jocker
4) Leo, Omar Brunetti, Virgo vs Mr. Trueno, Rey Trueno, Sádico
5) Black Panther vs Hechicero
6) La Máscara & Rush vs Kráneo & Mr. Águila

Hechicero starts his secret mission to get singles matches with everyone who even tried to get into the En Busca de un Idolo tournament. Main event main have a metric ton of goofing around.

IWRG (SUN) 07/20/2014 Arena Naucalpan

2) Alan Extreme & Dragón Celestial vs Guerrero Mixtico & Hip Hop Man

4) Golden Magic, Relámpago, Rey Horus vs Bestia 666, Damián 666, Eterno
5) LA Park vs Máscara SagradaPirata MorganDemon ClownDr. Wagner Jr.Hijo De Dos Caras [IWRG IC HEAVY, Ladder]
vacant championship; Vampiro last won the title and immediately retired.

Epic possibilities for the main event, with The Pride of The Great White North Demon Clown attempting to climb a ladder making this must seen itself. (Also, much like WWE knows, the secret benefit of a ladder match is you can include top names without needing to get any of them to job.)

Rey Horus making his debut here is exciting for other reasons (it’ll be really good!), though I’m not totally sure it’ll happen. the last time Damian 666 was mention in IWRG, he was still waiting for his plane to take off from Tijuana.
