07/07 AAA TV Results (Ecatepec)

AAA TV (SUN) 07/07/2013 Centro Civico Nueva Aragon, Ecatepec, Estado de Mexico [AAA]
1) Argenis & Súper Fly b Argos & Dizzy
bonus match. Argenis beat Dizzy with a moonsault.
2) Alebrije, Atomic Boy, Niño Hamburguesa b Carta Brava Jr., El Apache, Mamba
Joe Lider & Crazy Boy asked Alebrije, Cuije and Atomic Boy to join the Mexican Powers, and they said Yes! And then they won, Atomic Boy beating apache.
3) Drago, Fénix, Flamita b Pentagón Jr., Steve Pain, Último Gladiador
Steve Pain’s TV debut. Fenix beat Gladiador with a tornillo.
4) Alan Stone, El Elegido, Toscano b Daga, Halloween, Psicosis
Halloween replaced Eita (WWL). Toscano pinned Halloween.
5) Angélico, Jack Evans, La Parka DQ Chessman, Eterno, Parka Negra
Parka Negra fouled Parka, and seem to get away with it, but the fans convinced Piero to call the DQ.
6) Monster Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown b Canek, Silver King, Texano Jr.
Canek was the unadvertised surprised. Psycho Circus still won, Psycho Clown frog splashing Silver King.

Air Date: 07/20? The week after Leon.

Tecnicos won every match and nothing much happened (no offense to the Mexican Powers.) This location seemed like a Fusion taping when the location was announced. It still kind of feels that way after the show, and adding a match means they could easily send two matches to Fusion and air the rest on Televisa/UTDN. Matches still look good, tercera should be a lot of fun.

DTU, Fiebre Amarilla vs Atlantida, Black Metal defeats caveman for title, Canek

photo by Black Terry Jr.

DTU (SAT) 07/06/2013 Arena Lopez Mateos [Black Terry Jr. (flickr)Estrellas del RingR de Rudo]
1) Yuta b JhonkyKalibusJorge KebradaKiubyArtikusÁngel del MisterioOsirisAtomic StarMiedo Extremo
Jhonki, Atomic Star replaced Kalibus, Pequeno Cobra, Slayer Pack. Reports differ on if Kiuby or Arana de Plata was the third addition; best guess is Kiuby based on the pictures. Yuta beat Miedo Extremo for the win.
2) Kaleth & Niño Hamburguesa b Lucky Boy & Niño de Ébano and Crazy King & Principe Escorpion and Lanzeloth & Rocky Lobo and Araña de Plata & Pequeno Cobra
Locker/Rocker team scheduled for this match moved up one. Arana de Plata & Pequeno Cobra team seems to have replaced them, according to EdR.
3) Carta Brava Jr. I, La Magnifica, Locker b Comando Negro, Keira, Rocker
Match had been listed as three way tag with Arana/Perro Mocho (who seems to have missed all DTU shows), Carta Jr./Comando Negro vs Carta IWL/Cerebro Negro.
4) Epitafio, Judas el Traidor, Samael, Tormento NC Black Fire, Chica Ye-Ye, Demente Extreme, Peligro
Tormento replaced Leviatham, Peligro was the mystery man on the DTU side. Los Porros ran in to attack everyone, then got into an argument with Ciclope.
5) Steve Pain b Fenix (AAA)Príncipe HalcónJinzoOrionSádicoTomahawk T.T.HackerHormiga [#1 Contenders, DTU AI]
Fenix and Steve Pain replaced Septimo Dragon and Poison. Pain beat Fenix for the win, and wins a shot against Flamita at some point.
6) Drastik Boy & Flamita b Davey Richards & Eddie Edwards and Daga & Eterno
switched to the semi main (in before the ring was filled with leftovers from the hardcore match.) Upset win for Flamita & Drastik
7) Aero Boy & Violento Jack b Crazy Boy & Joe Lider and Cíclope & Paranoiko
switched to the main. Besides the usual violence, the LA Park Chair On Fire spot has made it’s way to DTU. Arana de Plata ran into help Ciclope, setting up lamps on the match, but Violento Jack put Ciclope thru them for the win.

It sounds like the fifth match was the best, but there’s not too many notes about the match quality. There’s really nothing said about the sixth match. I maybe have gotten the wrong Carta Brava.

CMLL (SUN) 07/07/2013 Arena Coliseo [CMLL]
1) Höruz & Robin b Akuma & Guerrero Negro Jr.
Tecnicos took 2/3.
2) Arkángel de la Muerte, Hooligan, Skándalo b Hombre Bala Jr., Pegasso, Soberano Jr.
Soberano replaced Starman. Rudos took 1/3.
3) Tritón b Raziel [lightning]
Triton won with a moonsault tornillo in a good match.
4) Bushiroad, Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr. b Boby Zavala, Namajague, Shigeo Okumura
Tecnicos toko 2/3 in a good match. Delta & Maya challenged for a title shot next week, and Okumura & Namajague accepted.
5) Diamante Azul, Shocker, Thunder b Euforia, Mr. Niebla, Vangellys
Tecnicos took 1/3.
6) Ephesto, Mephisto, Volador Jr. b Máscara Dorada, Mistico, Valiente
Rudos took 1/3 in a slightly disappointing match.

Main event seemed to start a Estetas del Aire vs Avernos/Volador feud, similar to Puebla. They’re probably a few weeks away from doing that match.

Next week’s show is in Arena Mexico, according to the announcers at the end of the show. This might have been made clear during the earlier microphone challenges, but the ring microphone wasn’t plugged into the Terra feed from the second match on. There was no sound entirely from midway in the second match until Triton’s post match promo.

CMLL (SUN) 07/07/2013 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [@acogdl]
1) Brillante & Capitan (Guadalajara) b Relampago Azul (Guadalajara) & Samael (Guadalajara)
Debut for Capitan. Tecnicos took 2/3.
2) Demonio Maya, El Yaki, Satara b Halcón de Plata, Idolo, Javier Cruz Jr.
Yaki back as a rudo, which makes since with that name. Rudos took 2/3.
3) Acertijo, Jocker, Sádico b El Hippie, Sky Kid, Tony Escobedo
Escobedo’s debut. Rudos took 1/3, Acertijo snuck in a foul on Hippie to set up the rudo win.
4) Black Metal b Bárbaro Cavernario [OCCIDENTE MIDDLE]
Metal took falls 1/3 to win the championship. Barbaro falls on fourth defense. Barbaro demanded a rematch in precisely two weeks.
5) La Máscara, Máximo, Rush b Dragón Rojo Jr., Pólvora, Rey Bucanero
Tecnicos took 2/3.

The title change could be a setup to Barbaro coming to Mexico City. He was good in his three day stint last month. It’s not like Arena Coliseo Guadalajara to care that much about their championships; they didn’t take them off Palacio Negro or Metal Blanco when they knew they were leaving or even when they came back.

Canek was the unadvertised surprise luchador on AAA TV’s taping in Ecatepec. Unclear why they brought in Canek and didn’t advertise him. La Parka worked the AAA TV taping and not the WWL show, while Eita did the opposite. More details about the AAA TV taping, though there’s not that many details to go around.

AAA had a photoshoot with Angelico & Jack Evans and the Reinas del Ring, along with a promo for Sunday’s taping which helps you not at all now. Sorry! Jack Evans yelling “woo” holds up.

The next TxT show appears to be on 07/27. This poster doesn’t make any matches clear except that the usual woman will face each other, and I think you could’ve figured that. It’s a Mexico vs the World Theme, which is pretty much the same as most of the TxT shows this year. Hijo del Santo is on the poster even though he’s said he’s not wrestling on the show.

Rob has video of a Los Payasos photobomb and CMLL 06/04/13

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.

CMLL posted highlights of their press conference.

Cronicas y Leyendas looks back at the fall of the Intocables, Andre el Gigante in 1980, and video of Ray Mendoza & Cavernario Galindo vs Memo Rubio & Pantera Blanca from 1964.

Big match for Joel Lider on Friday.

New CMLL Tag Team champions don’t seem so scary.

Atlantis vs Guerreros, Vangellys vs Valiente likely Busca final, CMLL/AAA time change

photo by CMLL

CMLL (FRI) 07/05/2013 Arena Mexico
1) Camaleón & Sensei b Cholo & Disturbio
2) Dark Angel, Luna Mágica, Marcela b Amapola, La Seductora, La Vaquerita
3) Diamante Azul, La Máscara, Thunder b Dragón Rojo Jr., Mr. Niebla, Pólvora
4) Stuka Jr. b Fuego [En Busca de un Idolo]
Short match, Stuka winning with a cradle. Judges were not high on either man, giving Stuka a 7, 8, 8, 6 for a 29 and a 6, 7, 7, 5 for Fuego.
5) Vangellys b Valiente [En Busca de un Idolo]
Good match. Vangellys kicked out Valiente’s finisher and beat him with a fisherman’s suplex. Vangelis scored all 10s for a 40, and Valiente got a 10, 10, 10, 9 for a 39.
6) Rush b ShockerMáximoBlue PantherSuper PorkyNegro CasasAvernoMr. ÁguilaRey EscorpiónRey Bucanero [cibernetico]
Eliminations went Super Porky, Averno, Mr. Aguila, Maximo (DQed due a rudo faking a foul), Blue Panther, Shocker (Rush fouled, Bucanero got the pin), Rey Bucanero, Negro Casas, Rey Escorpion, with Rush celebrating his victory by himself.
7) Gran Guerrero, Niebla Roja, Último Guerrero b Atlantis, Mistico, Titán
Quick match, especially the first two falls. Rudos took 1/3. Atlantis pulled UG’s mask, but Gran Guerrero still fouled Atlantis and got the pin.

En Busca de un Idolo standings

221 Vangellys
213 Valiente
—————–
185 Stuka Jr.
149 Fuego

Stuka is 36 points behind Valiente and 28 points behind Vangelis. Both are a stretch but neither is possible; if they were switched and Stuka was only 28 points behind Vangelis, Stuka would have a great chance. Last week’s poll results were much closer than any previous week, with only 11 points separating first from last. It needs to be a much bigger (normal) gap for Stuka to win. The enthusiasm for this tournament has pretty much burnt out, so it’s likely that doesn’t happen.

Valiente is a main event guy right now regardless of what happens in this tournament. Vangellys should win if CMLL already has a plan for him going forward. If they don’t, Valiente should win.

Volador was doing guest commentary for Televisa. I heard a bit of his commentary on the tercera – it turns out he doesn’t think much of the tecnicos! Estrellita was on the Fox Sports broadcast, which should have the woman’s match and the main event.

CMLL and AAA are both bumped an hour later this afternoon on Televisa. It’s a one time thing, and something they only started pushing the last day or so (so they probably found out about it then.) They’re pushed back because the network is airing a U20 World Cup (soccer) game between Uruguay and Spain. It’s a playoff game, so it could go much longer.

Estrellas del Ring has Orion winning the DTU 6 way match in Aficion I couldn’t find a result for. That recap also mentions people left the show early when they were five (not good) matches in and it was already 11 pm.

Black Terry Jr. has photos from last night’s show in Queretero. I do not have full results, but Fenix did retain the Fusion title in another four way.

The LA Park vs Dr. Wagner Jr. vs El Hijo del Santo match has turned up on YouTube (found here.)

Fredo has photos of Namajague Fuego, Namajague Titan and Namajague Revolucionario from Namajague’s Facebook.

Porra Fresa previews Monday’s Arena Puebla card.

CMLL Gaceta has a story on Terrible & Sombra’s first night in Japan.

Pachuca luchador Kulikitaka is out of action with an arm injury.

Alebrije talks about his match tomorrow.

Lineups

IWRG (THU) 07/11/2013 Arena Naucalpan
1) Sky Ángel vs Dragón Celestial
2) Saruman & Seiya vs Fulgor I & Fulgore II
3) Black Terry, Chico Che, Golden Magic vs Canis Lupus, El Imposible, Picudo Jr.
4) Emo Extreme, Extreme Tiger, Toscano vs Apolo Estrada Jr., Eterno, X-Fly
5) Súper Nova vs Dinamic Black [NWA OLD LH]
Super Nova is the champion.

This is the maybe NWA Mexico sanctioned NWA Light Heavyweight championship that Super Nova somehow won in the Pacific Northwest. They’re the old CMLL belts that the NWA took from them and gave to Blue Demon, who pretty much just gave them to his friends and so there are more unsanctioned worthless belts floating around Mexico. I can’t thank the NWA enough for doing that, great job everyone. Main event should be fun and I hope Dinamic Black continues forming his own eight belt trophy and then throws seven of them into the ocean.

On the other hand, a team of Emo Extreme, Extreme Tiger, and Toscano. Only in IWRG.

CMLL (FRI) 07/12/2013 Arena Mexico
1) Eléctrico & Último Dragoncito vs Pequeño Olímpico & Pierrothito
2) Diamante, Sagrado, Tritón vs Namajague, Puma, Shigeo Okumura
3) Diamante Azul, La Máscara, Shocker vs Dragón Rojo Jr., Ephesto, Mephisto
4) Blue Panther, Rush, Super Porky vs Averno, Negro Casas, Rey Escorpión
5) ? vs ?? [En Busca de un Idolo, final]
most likely Valiente vs Vangelis
6) Atlantis, Máscara Dorada, Mistico vs Euforia, Gran Guerrero, Último Guerrero

They’re already ramping up Atlantis vs Ultimo Guerrero; lots of them in the main events for the next 3 months.

New CMLL tag team champions, DTU, IWRG, En Busca de un Idolo

Yuta replaced Eterno. Nino flattened Yuta for the win.
4) Paranoiko b Crazy KingBlack FirePrincipe Escorpion [chairs]
Paranoiko beat Crazy king. Super Mega was scheduled, is not listed as wrestling.
5) Orion ?? Septimo DragonHormigaSteve PainArtikusMiedo Extremo
match definitely happened, but no result recorded.
6) Davey Richards & Eddie Edwards b Aeroboy & Violento Jack and Flamita & Hacker and Jinzo & Príncipe Halcón
American Wolves beat Compares Extremos.
7) Crazy Boy & Joe Lider b Cíclope & Drastik Boy [100 light tubes]

It would figure that the American Wolves and the Mexican Powers are going to win until they face each other. Attendance does not look great.

IWRG (THU) 07/04/2013 Arena Naucalpan [IWRG, The Gladiatores]
1) Fulgore II b Seiya
2) Astro Rey Jr. & Sky Ángel b Alan Extreme & Fulgor
Astro pinned Fulgor I
3) Canis Lupus, Cerebro Negro, Imposible b Centvrión, Golden Magic, Saruman
4) Apolo Estrada Jr., el Ángel, Heddi Karaoui DQ Pantera, Trauma I, Trauma II
Rudos took 1/3. Heddi faked a foul from Pantera to draw the DQ.
5) Eterno, Súper Nova, X-Fly b Dinamic Black, Dr. Cerebro, Toscano
Rudos took 1/3, X-Fly getting in a foul on Dr. Cerebro. Super Nova challenged Dinamic Black to a title match and stole his mask.

Super Nova has been around IWRG for a while now, so it doesn’t seem like he’s heading out to Europe any time. Perhaps he’s the mystery Consejo guy on Sunday on the AAA TV taping?

Week 2 En Busca de un Idolo poll totals
40 Stuka Jr.
39 Vangellys
39 Fuego
29 Stuka Jr.

Those are, uh, surprising numbers. Vangellys poll numbers went up 34 points in one week. Whatever. Totals thru round 2.

174 Valiente
161 Vangellys
136 Stuka Jr.
124 Fuego

If Stuka beats Fuego and Vangellys losses to Valiente, then Stuka might be advancing. If Stuka & Vangellys win, then it’s still in play based on the poll (and I guess Valiente is no sure bet.)

Besides the final second round En Busca de un Idolo matches, tonight’s Arena Mexico show also has a cibernetico preview of the upcoming Infierno en el Ring cage match. The main event is Atlantis, Mistico and Titan vs Gran Guerrero, Niebla Roja, and Ultimo Guerrero, where the Guerrero switch might make it’s debut in Arena Mexico.

The return of SuperLuchas should’ve been in the top 6 stories post. I’ve seen the magazine, and it’s the same quality as it was before the hiatus. They’ve switched to 30 pages an issue (up 6), but also have gone down to one issue every two weeks.

A recap of the CMLL press conference says the winner of En Busca de un Idolo gets to be in future Arena Mexico main events. Also, Vangelis declared himself winner of the competition because he already beat Stuka & Fuego twice and Valiente once. Valiente disagreed. Also, the disagreement between Rush & Shocker was not over who was in charge, but Shocker firing Rush while Rush declaring he quit first. Another recap highlights Atlantis calling Blue Panther the best luchador to ever fight in Arena Mexico.

The local lucha libre commission warned fans to not attended an unlicensed show in Merida this Saturday. The same article mentions the FusionSports show last weekend also drew a fine for being unlicensed.

Rob has highlights of 11/30/12 CMLL.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update, including a translation of Santo’s statement on his injury.

Lucha Libre in Japan

07/05 NJPW:
4) Shinsuke Nakamura, Masato Tanaka [O], Yujiro Takahashi b Tomoaki Homna [X], La Sombra, Tetsuya Naito

Sombra looked good and had both title belts (IWGP IC, NWA MIDDLE.) His feud with Nakamura was pushed strongly.

6) Jushin Liger & Hiroshi Tanahashi [O] b Terrible [X] & Tama Tonga [CMLL TAG]

Another good match. Disappointing outcome – Terrible went a long way with Tanahashi before being beat in the end – but it’s going from one team that’s based in Japan to another team that’s based in Japan. I presume this means Tanahashi & Lyger are coming to Mexico in September for the Universal tournament and a title change, but there’s no urgency. Fans in the building were really happy about the title match. Terrible shook the hands of the new champions after the match, which Tama did not seem happy about. He also was not out with the Bullet Club at the end of the show. May be a long tour for the TRT leader.

ALso, no CMLL luchadors in the G1. It’d be cool for CMLL guys to do well in a tournament, but it’s much preferable to have Rush/Terrible/Sombra around Mexico instead of gone for three weeks. This is not a good year to just send a guy over for experience. It’s a bad sign for Sombra’s chances of keeping the IWGP IC title.

There was some good stuff on the shows – the minis cibernetico, the Blue Panther/Averno on Fox Sports. Just nothing to make the list.

Matches Worth Consideration But Will Be Watched Later

The TxT show (Wagner/Park) for sure.

CMLL Puebla: 2013-06-03: Asturiano, Meyer, Tigre Rojo Jr. vs Akrón, King Jaguar, Siki Ozama Jr.

box.

== AAA ==

AAA-Televisa: New matches! If they’re doing two weeks of shows from Leon, it’s may be Dizzy time.

AAA-Fusion: Not new matches, unless they shift some over from Sin Leon. The future of this show does not seem bright.

== CMLL ==

Galavision/Televisa: Relevos Increible match, Averno/Rojo/NIebla vs Panther/Dorada/Mistico and maybe Gen11 vs CMLL’s Special Forces.

FOX: Sombra vs Volador. This is a good week to point out there’s a Fox Sports feed on the internet, run by the same people who do the TVC Deportes one. (Which means lots of ads and it may not be working.)

52MX: La Mascara/Rush/Titan vs Invasors for the trios titles.

C3: Dorada/Titan/Valiente vs Averno/Pierroth/Volador

TVC Deportes (Puebla): Week 2 of Estetas vs Avernos, plus Barbaro/Black Metal here.

Terra: Estetas vs Ephesto/Mephisto/Volador, Bushi/Delta/Maya vs Zavala/Namajague/Okumura.

== Other ==

IWRG-AYM Sports: Solar vs Negro Navarro, Astro Rey Jr. vs Impossible vs Dragon Celestial in Three Match Fighters

Noches de Coliseo: No idea. Maybe Centurion Negro vs Black Spirit, maybe another secret Tuesday show, maybe some reasons. I have no idea if the WWL show will end up here next week, but it seems possible.

TxT: The remainder of the show; it sounded like last week was mostly the relevos tournament, so this should be Demon/Santo vs Karaoui/Zumbi.

Infierno en el Ring set for 07/19, Santo surgery

The CMLL press event had the expected amount of news. CMLL Gaceta has the only wrap up I’ve seen, though a lot was mentioned back on Twitter

  • Infierno en el Ring was officially announced for 07/19. That’s a week later than earlier speculation. The ten men in the cage match are the ten men you’d expect: Shocker, Rush, Máximo, Blue Panther, Super Porky, Negro Casas, Averno, Mr. Águila, Rey Escorpión, Rey Bucanero. Averno and Blue Panther were the last to sign (among the people who actually showed up, no Brazo de Plata), both challenging each to another apuesta match should they survive this one. That match would be a one fall submission match with no ropes no ropes break, and is unlikely to actually happen no matter what goes on here. Mr.
  • A 35th Blue Panther Anniversary show will be held on 08/16. The main event is Blue Panther, Atlantis and Negro Casas vs Solar, Negro Navarro and Black Terry. That should be outstanding.
  • Marco Corleone announced his knee injury was not as severe as previously reported, and he’ll be back in August. That’s way ahead of the initial schedule. He also said that any enemy of Rush is an enemy of himself and Maximo.
  • More En Busca de un Idolo shuffling. Shocker and Rush argued about who was running the tecnico team. Mr. Niebla takes over for Terrible with the rudos (just Vangelis.) Like last year, all the participants will come back for a cibernetico after the tournament, on 07/26. There was no mention of any prize for the winner.
  • Taichi starts on 07/26, and the CMLL travels to Japan (REINA, NJPW) were mentioned.

Ray Mendoza Jr. also held a press conference for his show on the 20th. Not much news on that one. There’s CMLL luchadors all over the lineup, but they none appeared at the press conference. Hijo de Pirata Morgan challenged V5 to a hair vs hair match, and V5 said no.

In his weekly Record column, El Hijo del Santo explains he was hurt so much by LA Park’s martinete, he had surgery – to his intestines, because of the pressure the move put on his abdominal region. Riiiiight. This sounds like Santo  previously had surgery scheduled and decided to weave into this match. He’ll be out for 45 days.

AAA sent out an interview with Nino Hamburguesa talking about Sunday’s match in Ecatepec as his TV debut match. It’s not his TV debut match; he wrestled in the opener of the March 3rd San Luis Potosi Sin Limite taping, which eventually aired on Fusion. This Sunday’s match in Ecatepec is also an opener and may also end up on Fusion or not aired at all.

NJPW’s Kizuna Road iPPV is tomorrow morning. It’s starting at 4:30 am Central Time, with the CMLL Tag Team Title match taking place around 6am. I think I’m watching this live.

This week’s Tercera Caida was filmed before a live audience in Arena Queretaro, with the American Wolves and promotes Carlos Maynes. DTU’s 4 show weekend tour starts tonight in that building and will eventually air on TVC Deportes.

Mascara Dorada & Sagrado beat Mr. Aguila & Mephisto in Cuautlancingo, Puebla on a show sponsored by local political candidates.

Bill has highlights of 07/19/12 IWRG.

A different kind of unmasking.

Santo/Wagner/Park, Consejo vs Wolves/Tomahawk, Titan/Averno, Charly Manson

indy (SUN) 06/30/2013 Arena Solidaridad [KrisZ, LuchaMania]
1) Caballo Dorado, La Coronela, Solovino b Black Hanibbal, Destructor, Mini Hator
2) Atomo, Crazy Demon, Demonio del Caribe b Dark War, Norteño, Norteño Jr.
Demon used the ropes to win.
3) Ciber Payaso & Mortifero b Ángel o Demonio & Obett and Chamaco Gurrola & Galactar
Less extreme than you’d expect (maybe because of Santo?) Payaso used the ropes to get the pin.
4) Diluvio Negro II, Orquídea Negra, Silver Star b Koko Viper, Mongol Chino, Sergio Romo Jr.
Romo fouled Silver, Diluvio fouled Mongol, ref counted that second pin.
5) Trauma I & Trauma II b Cerebro Negro & Dr. Cerebro
Best match of the night. Trauma II beat Cerebro Negro with a Canadian Destroyer.
6) LA Park b El Hijo Del SantoDr. Wagner Jr.
Complete brawl, into the crowd and mark ripping. LA Park complained about Santo getting involved in a match with Wagner & Park before the match and warned him he’d pay if didn’t back out. Santo didn’t back out, and LA Park gave him a martinete. Wagner got the pin somehow. Santo was strechered and taken to the hospital. Park powerbombed Wagner thru a table after 10 more minutes for the win. Wagner was also strechered out, though not before LA Park mimed burying him.

The latest on the Hijo del Santo injury storyline is he says he went under surgery this week and will be back in the ring in September. Pretty good turn around on neck surgery to be back in two months. Despite this, his Record column is still coming out tomorrow. For his part, LA Park blames Santo for getting involved in his fight with Dr. Wagner Jr.  Park doesn’t try to pivot the feud to Park vs Santo, which is peculiar because Santo seems to be setting that up as the replacement match. Easiest explanation is a Santo/Park/Wagner/??? four way with the fourth guy losing their mask.  CFan Deportes uses the opportunity to write about famous martinetes in lucha libre.

FLM (SUN) 06/30/2013 Auditorio Siglo XXI, Yucatan, Merida [Estrellas del RingR de Rudo]

CMLL (TUE) 07/02/2013 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [@acogdl]
1) Esfinge & Smaker b Évola & Exterminador
Tecnicos took 1/3.

DF rudos beat GDL tecnicos, taking falls 2/3.

Tecnicas took 1/3. Blanca dropkicked the ref by mistake. Goya & Blanca challenged each other post match.

5) La Máscara, La Sombra, Rush b Euforia, Gran Guerrero, Último Guerrero
Tecnicos took 2/3.

Princesa Blanca took Goya Kong’s mask, but is now stuck feuding with her for the rest of time. A genuine monkey’s paw situation.

CMLL has a press event Thursday at noon. It’s the usual bit of not announcing it publicly ahead of time, but bits and pieces leaked out.

  • The Infierno en el Ring cage match should be announced. We know the participants (the 10 guys in the cibernetico on Friday), and the only thing left is to say if it’ll be on 07/12 or 07/19.
  • Another major show will take place on Friday August 16, likely involving the same group of independent luchadors seen on the Arena Coliseo Anniversary show.
  • Marco Corleone teased a positive injury update which will be announced Thursday.
  • Titan vs Averno will definitely be spotlighted. Guerrero Maya plans on challenging for the Arena Coliseo tag team titles next Sunday, so maybe that’ll be officialized here. That show will probably also be an Arena Mexico one.
  • There should be updates on the En Busca de un Idolo tournament and CMLL’s recent adventures in Japan. It’s possible CMLL may mention their participation in the G1 tournament, since NJPW will be releasing the full list of participants in about 15 hours later.

There’s probably a bit more than that. It sure looks like there’s also a cage match coming in Puebla (on 07/14 or 07/21) and that’s something that should be stated here. Something spotlighting the Estetas makes sense.  Ideally, they’d go as far as announce the Anniversary show date as well.

AAA had a video interview with Electroshock last night, talking about how he got interested in lucha libre, the origin of his character and Charly Manson’s status.  One summary says Charly has still never been formerly sentenced and no one knows how long he’s in for.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.

One more DTU show, also supposed to be taped by TVC Deportes. Autolavado = car wash parking lot, but this setting looked great when they showed clips from the most recent DTU show here.

IWRG (SUN) 07/07/2013 Arena Naucalpan
1) Freelance & Galaxie vs Araña de Plata & Fulgor
2) Dinamic Black, Dr. Cerebro, Freeyser vs Apolo Estrada Jr., Oficial 911, Tomahawk
3) Astro Rey Jr. vs Imposible, Dragón Celestial [IWRG IC Light]
title is vacant, final survivors from a three way last week
4) Trauma I, Trauma II, Veneno vs Fuerza Guerrera, Máscara Año 2000 Jr., X-Fly
5) Negro Navarro vs Solar I [FMLL MASTER]
Negro is listed as champion

I’ve seen that match! It’s a good match.

indy (SUN) 07/07/2013 Arena Coliseo San Luis Potosi
1) Galactar Jr. & Vandor vs Metal & Neurosis
2) Dragon Fury, Magnifico (slp), Rey Deimante vs Gemelo I, Gemelo II, Judoka
3) Aster Boy, Meteoro (slp), Turbo Kid vs Cachorro, Kukuxklan, Mensajero
4) Divino, Faraon De La Meurte, Oro Azul vs Black Extreme, Drack Conde, Extrem Fly
5) Bogar vs Virus [CMLL SL]
Virus is champion. Fourth known defense.

For real. Could Bogar become the Super Lightweight champion of the world? He’s got more of a chance than you do (unless you’re Virus.) First known defense of this belt since last October.

CMLL (MON) 07/08/2013 Arena Puebla
1) Asturiano & Fresbee vs Blue Center & Espanto Jr.
2) Leono, Pegasso, Robin, Stigma, Tigre Rojo Jr. vs Disturbio, Espíritu Maligno, Inquisidor, Siki Ozama Jr., Skándalo
not listed as a cibernetico, but ten man tags usually are in CMLL.
3) Bushiroad, Diamante, Tritón vs Cancerbero, Raziel, Virus
4) La Máscara, Stuka Jr., Titán vs Dragón Rojo Jr., Pólvora, Rey Escorpión
5) Atlantis, Diamante Azul, Shocker vs Mr. Niebla, Pierroth, Último Guerrero

They teased Skandalo & Espiritu Mailgno vs Stigma this past Monday, so probably more of that here (and no new main event program until that’s resolved.)

CMLL (TUE) 07/09/2013 Arena Mexico
1) Molotov & Sensei vs Apocalipsis & Inquisidor
2) Dalis la Caribeña, Estrellita, Luna Mágica vs La Vaquerita, Tiffany, Zeuxis
3) Máscara Dorada, Rey Cometa, Stuka Jr. vs Namajague, Rey Bucanero, Tiger
4) Averno vs Titán [MEX WELTER]
Averno is champion. First defense.
5) Atlantis, Máximo, Thunder vs Mr. Niebla, Niebla Roja, Pierroth

If you go with the theory that Titan, La Mascara and Rush won the trios titles more by happening to be around the week CMLL decided they needed to do a trios change, then maybe it has little effect on the outcome here. Or maybe Averno just wins to keep the titles spread out. Should be really good either way, and the tercera does not look bad either. Namajague’s worked as a Terrible replacement before.

CMLL (TUE) 07/09/2013 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Metatrón & Virgo vs Mr. Trueno & Rey Trueno
2) Leo, Starman, Stigma vs Arkángel de la Muerte, Ráfaga, Skándalo
3) Goya Kong vs Princesa Blanca
4) Guerrero Maya Jr., Hijo del Fantasma, Super Porky vs Olímpico, Psicosis, Sangre Azteca
5) Mistico, Shocker, Valiente vs Felino, Mephisto, Volador Jr.

A show!

1) Lolita, Medics III, Payaso Terror, Peligro vs Pasion Kristal, Pentagón Jr., Perico, Sexy Lady

6) Monster Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown vs Ángel o Demonio, León Rojo, Obett [IWL TRIOS]

Only 41 luchadors on this show, anorexic by IWL standards. IWL appears to only have one main event. Tercera could be good if given time (and everyone shows up, which is not always the case with the ex-IWRG trio.)
