6) La Sombra b Terrible
Comandate was with Terrible. Terrible took the first with a cavernaria. Sombra caught him with a small package in the second. Comandante interfered in the third fall, but Sombra still won with a double moonsault. Sombra told Terrible he just proved he was better, and he’d be winning the Heavyweight title on Sunday. Best match on the show.

Estrellita won the Mexican National Women’s championship from Princesa Blanca in Arena Coliseo Guadalajara last night. It’s not a big surprise, Estrellita has been doing well in CMLL for the last year and they might have done this weeks ago if Estrellita didn’t cut her hand in a match and had to sit out for a few weeks. Marcela is the world champion, but CMLL presents Estrellita as the biggest female star. If you’re going to go with Estrellita, you might as well go strongly and having Estrellita with a belt is step in that direction.

It’s actually more surprising it didn’t take place on a big show. Blanca and Estrellita have been slightly feuding on the El Luchador show: an early episode included a pull apart when Blanca found out Estrellita was dating Puma King and tonight’s episode appears to center around the cage match they were both involved in. I’m still not sure if the A&E reality show makes a tangible difference to CMLL business – the worst period of CMLL last year was when season 1 aired – but it seems like worth trying to capitalize on it somehow. Right now, the only way they might be doing it is making sure Mistico is back in the ring just in time for the El Luchador episode where he becomes Mistico airs.

Princesa Blanca was champion for nearly 4 years. Amapola was world champion for most of that time, so they’ve gone in a couple months from the rudas dominating the championships to the tecnicas. (It also means the bodybuilding contest tomorrow is the only title Dark Angel is probably getting a shot at in the near future.)

Los Mazisos vs Queretaro locals, last one in loses hair or mask
8) Paranoiko & Pesadilla vs Halloween & Psicosis and Makabre & Super Mega

DTU tour. I think it’s neat how it’s not just Tulancingo & Mexico City wrestlers on the show, but luchadors from places they go to regularly (Guadalajara, SLP) are involved. Also nice is how they’ve getting tag teams together for an extended period prior to having titles (which I assume are coming sometime soon); it’s much better than the other way.

Whenever’s last week’s Fusion recap gets posted (2014), I’ll go over this again, but you really want to book Nicho el Millionario and not Psicosis I right now. Nicho is alright. Psicosis I has been back for months and hasn’t gotten a mask he can actually see and work out of it.

A long long time ago (earlier this year), Daga vowed he was done with DTU. He’s back because of the Perros del Mal deal.

I would guess a local is losing their hair in the cage match. But that must mean Loco Max has hair again.

DTU (SAT) 12/08/2012 Arena Margarita, San Luis Potosi
1) Artikus & Sherry Diva vs ? & Lily Fighter and Radical & Ramieth
mystery person is a SLP exotico
2) Crazy Power I, Crazy Power II, Eragon Kid vs Niño de Ébano, Pequeno Cobra, Talaxys and Extreme Boy, Jorge Quebrada, Slayer Pack

6) Ciclope vs Aero Boy, Drastik Boy [mask]
7) ?, Astro Latino, Jhonky vs Joe Lider
Mystery wrestler is a DTU trainee, as Lider takes on new wrestlers.
8) Pesadilla vs Cerebro Negro [DTU]
Pesadilla is the champion

Pesadilla is the DTU champion though Joe Lider still seems to defend this title from time to time.

Semifinal appears to be 1 vs 3 and not a four way, but I could be reading the poster wrong. The idea is Lider is going to destroy some rookies.

The three way mask match has been teased for a while. It’s a long term feud with an actual payoff. Those of us who just follow AAA and CMLL may be unfamiliar with the concept.

Guadalajara, Rojo & Escorpion done with the Guerreros, Marvin & Crazy

CMLL (SUN) 10/07/2012 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [Cancha, El Occidental (4), El Occidental (5), Informador]
1) El Yaki b Demonio Rojo
2) Mr. Trueno & Rey Trueno b Halcón de Plata & Sky Kid
3) Eros, Esfinge, Exterminador b Espectrum, In Memoriam, Leo [Relevos Increíbles]
4) Gallo & Smaker b El Bárbaro & Maléfico
Tecnicos took 1/3.
5) Hijo del Fantasma, La Sombra, Máscara Dorada b Dragón Rojo Jr., Mephisto, Misterioso Jr.
Tecnicos took 2/3, Fantasma landing his lariat on Dragon Rojo.

There probably was something coming out of the tercera – besides the unusual sides, it was Eros’ first match since April – but no one mentions anything.

Dragon Rojo & Rey Escorpion told Kaiser Sports that they’re done with Ultimo Guerrero and Los Guerreros. Ultimo was holding them back, taking credit for their work, and recruiting members without consulting them. They both pointed to Dragon Rojo being double champion as proof they don’t need Ultimo Guerrero. They don’t have a name for their new group and are open to suggestions. Right now, they’d like a tag match against Guerrero & Euforia and, after they destroy them, they’re moving right on to the tag team titles.

Dark Angel says she’s working the Tuesday show in Guadalajara. Hooray!

LuchaMonterrey has footage of the Llaves y Candados explaining the Rayo de Jalisco Jr. no-show. Very stand up of them to come to the ring and explain it in front of the fans.

Llaves y Candados announced their next big show will be 10/21, with Perro Aguyao Jr.  & Teddy Hart vs La Parka & Jack Evans as the main event and more AAA wrestlers in the undercard. Match gets five stars if Parka tries to break dance.

AAA is teasing what must be a site redesign for Thursday with a countdown clock on their webpage. The last page seemed like it was a site only intended to be used for TripleMania but forced into use full time when the previous site disappeared. I can not make fun of anyone for redesigning their site when this one looks as it does.

Crazy Boy is teasing the DTU Anniversary shows as his return to the ring. They’ve been setting up that direction for a little bit.

I am told there is a possible exciting video of Euforia playing football americano at this link, but we in the US are blocked from seeing the 2 minute clip. Surely United States copyright law and world territory rights would break down if I was able to see this footage.

This week’s Box Y Lucha cover

(everyone should tweet out a picture of their magazine with a link to buy it to make my life easier.)

La Pantera wants a shot at Angelica’s LLF title.

Lucha Libre in Japan

10/07 WNC: Hijo del Pantera wrestled in the main event, but the promotion hasn’t posted results. Let’s assume he won!

10/07 NOAH: Ricky Marvin & Super Crazy [O] b Marshall Von Erich & Ross Von Erich [X]

10/08 NOAH: Super Crazy [O] & Ricky Marvin b Taiji Ishimori & Atsushi Kotoge [X] [GHC JR TAG] – 1st defense
Crazy is listed as winning with the “Sorpresa”. It definitely is a Sorpresa to see him coming back to Mexico with one half of the tag belts. If Ricky really is coming to Mexico later this year, perhaps they’ll get a chance to defend it on home soil before returning to NOAH.

NJPW first iPPV outside of Japan took place early this morning. It sounds like there were some technical difficulties processing orders, but they aired the show free until it was all sorted and most people were happy with the quality of the feed (and very happy with the quality of matches.) If NJPW is happy with how the business side turned out, it’s possible this is the start of regular broadcasts. It’d be neat novelty to see CMLL guys in Japan in miscellaneous matches (the matches they’re usually in!), The hope here is this worked out well enough that NJPW doesn’t just do it for next year’s big show on 01/04 in the Tokyo Dome, but for the NJPW/CMLL FantasticMania 2013 shows which will take place later that month. Those are something I’d wake up at 4AM and spend $25 on.

Guerrero Maya advances, Metro/Escorpion, DTU

Guerrero Maya Jr./photo by CMLL

CMLL (TUE) 05/24/2011 Arena Mexico [CMLL, Record (1-2, 4-5), Record (3)]
1) Camorra & Zayco b Camaleón & Robin
2) Leono, Metálico, Metatrón b Bronco, Semental, Súper Comando
Tecnicos took 1/3.
3) Guerrero Maya Jr. b Palacio Negro, Rey Cometa, Hijo del Signo, Magnus, Inquisidor, Hombre Bala Jr., Trueno [CMLL SL, tournament]
Eliminations were Trueno (via Inquisidor), Hombre Bala Jr. (Magnus), Inquisidor (Hijo del Signo), Magnus (Rey Cometa), Hijo del Signo (Palacio Negro), Rey Cometa (Guerrero Maya), Palacio Negro (Guerrero Maya). Guerrero Maya used a move that sure looks a lot like a martinete on Palacio Negro, but no DQ was called. Palacio was stretchered out after the match.
4) Mephisto, Shigeo Okumura, Yoshihashi b Delta, Hijo del Fantasma, Metal Blanco
Mephisto and Fantasma are suddenly back to feuding, how about that. Not that it’s going well for Fantasma: Mephisto ripped up the tecnico’s mask in the second fall and pinned him in the third.
5) Máximo, Rush, Strong Man DQ Atlantis, Rey Bucanero, Volador Jr.
Rudos took the first, tecnicos the second, Volador fouled Rush in the third.

CMLL (TUE) 05/24/2011 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [Fuego en el Ring]
1) Thunder Boy b Acertijo
2) Magnum & Virgo b Exterminador & Ráfaga
3) Goya Kong, Luna Mágica, Marcela b Amapola, La Comandante, Mima Shimoda
Goya Kong top rope splash on La Comandante.
4) Ephesto, Rey Escorpion, Vangelis b Diamante, Metro, Sangre Azteca
Rey Scorpion unmasked Metro and rolled him up for the win. They agreed to a singles match next week.
5) Black Warrior & La Sombra DQ Felino & Mr. Niebla
Niebla did make the show, and fouled Sombra for the DQ.

Crazy Boy is putting Violento Jack in charge of making the lineup for next DTU show. It sounded like they were plugging the card on TerceraCaiada yesterday afternoon (Flamita vs Atomic Boy), and Pesadilla talk about his match: a four way with Ultimo Gladiador, Zumbi and Sick Boy.

Perros del Mal have a new website: http://www.perrosdelmal.com.mx. It seems a bit half finished (some of the links don’t work), but it looks nice and it’s better than the nothing they’ve had before.

NJPW’s Best of Super Juniors tour is kicking off tomorrow (really early in the morning here.) Mascara Dorada’s opening match is the one he’s most familiar with, Jushin Lyger. We’ll probably have a good idea how this is going to go for Dorada after that match.

LA Park wants the fans to know he did not agree to lose his mask in exchange to return to AAA. I hope he’s letting AAA know that.

Mascara vs Averno, unfriendly TRT, Polvora & Delta advance, Suicida shaved

CMLL (FRI) 05/13/2011 Arena Mexico [CesarCMLLRecord]
1) Artillero, Mortiz, Súper ComandoHöruz, Robin, Trueno
Rudo win, taking 2/3. Trueno took Mortiz’s spanish fly. Robin had a poor night.
2) Arkángel de la Muerte, Loco Max, SkándaloÁngel Azteca, Ángel de Plata, Pegasso
Rudos took 1/3.
3) DeltaRey Escorpion [Forjando un Idolo, quarterfinal]
Crowd got into this match. Rey Escorpion tried to cheat again, but Ultimo Guerrero stopped him and Delta eventually took the win. Ultimo Guerrero and Rey Escorpion had real problems after this one, shoving each other on (and off) the ramp.
4) PólvoraHijo del Signo [Forjando un Idolo, quarterfinal]
Hijo del Signo was the last Group Alfa (Negro Casas) member standing. He lost, and Polvora becomes the second group Delta (Blue Panther) member to get thru.
5) Metal Blanco, Palacio Negro, Stuka Jr.Euforia, Shigeo Okumura, Yoshihashi
Bonus match, added midweek (but not publicized.) Probably not airing.
6) Negro Casas, Rey Bucanero, TerribleMáximo, Super Porky, Toscano
Rudos won, but Terrible & Bucanero turned on Zacarias and Negro Casas post match. Members of Fuerza TRT do not want anything to do with other rudos.
7) Averno, Ephesto, Último Guerrero DQ Blue Panther, La Máscara, Máscara Dorada
Rudos won in straight falls, with La Mascara angrily ripping off Averno’s mask in the second fall. More mask/mask challenges.

AAA (FRI) 05/13/2011 Arena Neza [Estrellas del Ring]
1) Montana Infernal & Muercielado NocturnoÁngel Mortal Jr. & Marabunta Jr.
2) Black Lancer, Okawa, Vampiro MetailcoCarta Brava, Hermano Muerte II, Hermano Muerte III
3) Mari Apache, Octagoncito, Pimpinela EscarlataMini Chessman, Polvo de Estrellas, Sexy Star
Mari replaced Fabi.
4) Neza KidMike Segura [hair]
Mike Segura lost his hair, so the mystery of Neza Kid lives another day (though it’d be more of a mystery if he wore a shirt and covered up his shoulder tattoos.) Ultraviolent match, though the finish was Suicida suplexing Neza Kid three times, reaching to pick up Neza again, and being cradles for the three count.
5) El Mesías, Monster Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown Bestia 666, Damián 666, el Hijo del Perro Aguayo, X-Fly
X-Fly was over here instead of the TV taping. Monster Clown hurt his ankle and fought in one shoe for a while. Mesias gave Perro a backcracker for a clean win!

Crowd looks pretty decent, strong by Arena Neza standards. Curious to know who the ‘local’ promoter is.

The lucha news was dominated by WWE’s show in Mexico City, and their announcement of television tapings in Palacio de los Deportes this October. WWE will record Raw on October 15 (Saturday) and SmackDown on October 16 (Sunday). With tapings finally happening, the new dangling carrot was maybe running WrestleMania in Azteca Stadium (but they probably need to work on airing something live first.) CMLL tends to run a mid level show the second week of October and AAA runs the Heroes Inmortales show in early October, so this may affect both of their plans.

At the press conference, Big Show said Alberto del Rio reminded him of an actor, like Frank Sinatra (?) but he’s ugly and should go back to wearing a mask. I want to watch movies with Sin Cara.

Perros del Mal are calling their anniversary show PerroMania XIX.

Ras de Lona included an interview with Hombre Bala Junior and Senior. Good to see Senior on his feet. They actually sort of mentioned Psicosis’ poor outcomes in title matches (biased refereeing, naturally) and Psicosis talked about his upcoming international matches (including Lucha Libre USA, which I believe is the first time they’ve actually mentioned that group by name here; Marco was also spotted in the brief about Shocker’s restaurant opening.)

Looks like the CMLL TV changes from last week were not a one time thing; CMLL Fox is airing matches from last Friday, so LATV is likely getting the Mex trios title match today.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.

CMLL (TUE) 05/17/2011 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Leo vs Black Metal
2) Metatrón & Virgo vs Acertijo & León Blanco
3) Último Dragoncito vs Pierrothito
4) Delta, Diamante, Metro vs Ephesto, Scorpion, Vangelis
5) Hijo del Fantasma, Sangre Azteca, Toscano vs Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto

Odd to see a singles non-title minis match here, but they’ve actually done this same match here twice in 2008, splitting the results. They’re 3-3 versus each other in singles matches all time.

CMLL (FRI) 05/20/2011 Arena Mexico
1) Bengala & Robin vs Bronco & Inquisidor
2) Dark Angel, Lluvia, Marcela vs Amapola, Estrellita, Tiffany
3) Delta vs Pólvora [Forjando un Idolo, semifinal]
4) Ángel de Oro vs Fuego [Forjando un Idolo, semifinal]
5) Rey Bucanero, Terrible, Texano vs Metro, Super Porky, Valiente
6) La Máscara vs Averno
7) Felino, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas vs La Sombra, Máscara Dorada, Rush

Not too big of a surprise that match is not a title match; it hasn’t been about the title. Wish they’d put their big singles matches in the main event spot.

Back when Rey Bucanero was added to Peste Negra, it was because they needed another man. Mr. Niebla was not around. Mr. Niebla is back now, but history indicates we should not expect him to stay around forever. Yet, CMLL doesn’t seem to be concerned at all now, making sure we know Bucanero is split from the group. I hope that’s a positive sign about Niebla, but I wonder if it means they’re much less concerned about keeping Peste Negra going or they’ve got a new member planned.

Interestingly, Ras de Lona had Shocker in Mascara Dorada’s place. Must’ve been some hope he’d been back this week. Should be soon.

CMLL (SUN) 05/01/2011 Arena Coliseo [Cesar, CMLL]
1) Bronco & Disturbio b Camaleón & Freesbe
Rudos took falls 1 and 3.
2) Guerrero Maya Jr., Hombre Bala Jr., Stuka Jr.Rayo Tapatío I, Rayo Tapatío II, Virus
Tecnicos took the last two falls.
3) Rey EscorpionPalacio Negro [Forjando un Idolo]
Palacio [3] did every crazy move he could think of – and ate a dropkick for the loss. Escorpion [6] finally wins clean, advances in second place.
4) Ángel de OroRey Cometa [Forjando un Idolo]
Angel de Oro finishes with 3 wins [9] and Rey Cometa [0] winless. The first place finishers – Oro, Delta, Diamante, Polvora – all end with perfect records. Cometa, Puma King and Angel de Plata all finished with zero points.
5) El Alebrije, Misterioso Jr., OlímpicoDiamante, Metro, Rush
Rudos took the last two falls, then made the expected title challenge for next week. Misterioso challenges Rush for a mask vs hair match. Keep dreaming.
6) Atlantis, Último Guerrero, Volador Jr.Black Warrior, Blue Panther, La Sombra
Rudos took one and three, Atlantis & Volador beating Sombra & Panther.

Saturday’s Arena Lopez Mateos show, to help Rey Escorpion pay for an operation for his child saw Rey Escorpion, Ultimo Guerrero, and Atlantis beat Villano IV, Villano V and Scorpio Jr. Straight fall win for the Guerreros, Rey Escorpion wiping out Scorpio Jr. with a dive while his parnters took care of the Guerreros. Amo La Lucha Libre has video of this match. Black Terry Jr. has video of Navarro & Traumas vs Solar, Chucho el Roto, and Iron Love: fall 1, fall 2, fall 3.

DTU’s Kids Day show included lap dances, men on women violence, and other lunacy. DTU: Keeping It Real.

SuperLuchas #411 has a spiffy new look. Inside is an interview with Hijo del Santo (in full Hijo del Santo, telling us he could’ve beaten Fishman or Villano III for their masks but he had too much respect for them to challenge them, fishing for someone to pay for a Hijo del Solitario mask match, explaining Super Astros set the stage for Sin Cara & Alberto del Rio)

Odds of that ? being Black Thunder: 99 to 99.999%

SuperLuchas says the next trainee show is 05/14. Scheduled to be a rematch with the Villano GYM, but they did run an angle with Gym Ham Lee last time.

CMLL (SUN) 05/08/2011 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara

3) Rey Cometa, Sagrado, Sangre Azteca vs Euforia, Pólvora, Vangelis
4) La Sombra, Máscara Dorada, Toscano vs Atlantis, Dragón Rojo Jr., Último Guerrero

That’s a match to challenge for Gallo’s title. Though I wonder what they’re going to do with Metal Blanco’s title if he’s not going to be around here (and probably isn’t losing to one who’s sticking around.) ACG Drago is not the AAA Drago.
