CMLL (SUN) 06/30/2013 Arena Coliseo [CMLL]
1) Molotov & Sensei b Camorra & Zayco
tecnicos took 1/3 in a boring match.
2) Bushiroad, Diamante, Leono b Arkángel de la Muerte, Nitro, Skándalo
Leono replaced Starman. Tecnicos took 1/3 in a boring match.
3) Princesa Blanca b Dark Angel [lightning]
Blanca beat Angel with an cradle and a hand on ropes in 8:43. Good match, best of the show so far. Blanca threw around hair match challenges post match.
4) Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr., Sagrado b Felino, Namajague, Shigeo Okumura
Tecnicos took 2/3, including Delta and Guerrero Maya beating Namajague & Okumura. No hint of a title match challenge post match.
5) Diamante Azul, La Sombra, Shocker DQ Pierroth, Rey Bucanero, Volador Jr.
Tecnicos took 1, with Azul breaking Pierroth on a german suplex. Volador fouled Sombra in the second.
6) La Máscara, Rush, Titán b Kráneo, Mr. Águila, Psicosis [MEX TRIOS]
Tecnicos took 2/3 in a disappointingly sloppy match to win the titles. Rush was clearly holding the ropes on the pinfall, but no one brought any attention to it. Invasors fall in their third defense. Post match celebration was pre-empted by another earthquake drill.

Main event title change is very weird.The show ending very quickly (because of the earthquake drill) added to the strange feel. It feels like a hurried change because they had to get the titles off the Invasors because someone is leaving and they’d figure out the rest later. Mr. Aguila is still the strong favorite to lose the Infierno en el Ring cage match, so maybe it’s him. Or maybe someone woke up and decided Rush had to have a title belt. CMLL Universal tournament is not that far away.

Dark Angel vs Princesa Blanca was the best match on the show. Sombra’s listed for a Tuesday night show in Guadalajara and then he’s off to Japan. Terrible finishes up Tuesday in Arena Mexico. That’s going to be a tough turnaround for the NJPW 07/05 show.

CMLL (SUN) 06/30/2013 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) El Divino & Virgo b Évola & Magnum
Divino took 1/3.
2) Esfinge, León Blanco, Metatrón b Acertijo, Espectrum, Infierno
Tecnicos took 1/3.
3) Black Metal, Gallo, Leo, Súper Popular b Bárbaro Cavernario, Exterminador, Maléfico, Ráfaga
Tecnicos took 1/3, Metal defeating Cavernario. Debutee Popular wasn’t involved in any of the finishes.
4) Demonio Rojo b Azteca de Oro [mask]
Azteca de Oro pinned Demonio Rojo in the first, Demonio Rojo took the second, and submitted Oro in the third. Azteca de Oro is Antonio Escobedo, 25 years old, 11 years a vet, which means he started wrestling professionally at 14.
5) Máscara Dorada, Mistico, Valiente b Euforia, Gran Guerrero, Niebla Roja
Estetas took 1/3, Mistica on Euforia in the third.
6) Último Guerrero b Atlantis
Atlantis was again honored for 30 years of wrestling. Atlantis took the first, UG the second, and Gran Guerrero and Ultimo Guerrero pulled a switch in the third fall to get the win.

First time we’ve seen them pull that switch, and probably won’t be the last time.

Hijo del Santo was taken to the hospital after his match in Arena Solidaridad with LA Park and Dr. Wagner. His wife posted a photo of Santo being strechered backstage still in his gear, which suggests this is a storyline and probably build to the mask match they’d like to do in September. The building looks 60% full for the match, which must be a disappointment and suggests it may not be a big deal.

Rayo takes Universo’s hair, Invasors vs Rush/Mascara/Titan?, Atlantis vs UG, DTU

photo by Black Terry Jr.

TxT (SAT) 06/22/2013 Gimnasio Juan De La Barrera [Black Terry Jr. (flickr)Estrellas del RingMedioTiempoYahoo Deportes]
1) Hijo del Dr. Wagner Jr. b Centvrión
Match had been announced as Dinamic Black & Imposible vs Golden Magic & Poseidon. 0 for 4.
2) La Chola & Rossy Moreno b Esther Moreno & Lady Apache
Chola landed a splash on Esther Moreno. Still teasing the hair match here.
3) Súper Muñeco, Súper Pinocho, Súper Ratón DQ Black Terry, Scorpio Jr., Shu el Guerrero [WWA TRIOS]
Straight falls for the champions. Second (at least) defense. More tease of Shu/Muneco.
4) Blue Demon Jr. & El Hijo Del Santo b Heddi Karaoui & Zumbi [PWR TAG]
Demon put Zumbi in la de a caballo while Demon submitted Heddi to an armbar to win. Santo & Demon’s first defense.
5) Rayo de Jalisco Jr. & Universo 2000 b Canek & Máscara Año 2000 [ruleta de la muerte, semifinal]
6) LA Park & Super Parka b Pirata Morgan & Villano IV [ruleta de la muerte, semifinal]
7) LA Park & Super Parka b Rayo de Jalisco Jr. & Universo 2000 [ruleta de la muerte, final]
8) Rayo de Jalisco Jr. b Universo 2000 [hair]
Rayo took falls 2/3 to win Universo’s hair. Universo has lost his last four recorded hair match.

A feud that restarted for CMLL this spring ends in TxT. Not to a great crowd; looks like maybe a third full. The ruleta de la muerte format does not appear to be a draw; this seems like it would’ve done the same amount if they just announced Rayo vs Universo.

CMLL (SUN) 06/23/2013 Arena Coliseo [CMLL]
1) Bengala & Fresbee b Cholo & Herodes Jr.
2) Bárbaro Cavernario, Disturbio, Hijo del Signo b Black Metal, Metálico, Molotov
Barbaro & Metal’s DF debuts. Barbaro did a lot better. Signo submitted Metalico in the third.
3) Namajague, Puma, Shigeo Okumura b Bushiroad, Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr.
Rudos took 2/3, Okumura fouling Maya. Bushiroad looked good and seems to fit right in. Puma suffered a left shoulder injury in the first fall and was favoring it after the match, but you wouldn’t be able to tell in his wrestling.
4) Diamante b Boby Zavala [lightning]
Diamante won with an armbar headscissors in 5:09.
5) Diamante Azul, Máscara Dorada, Mistico b Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto
Tecnicos took 2/3, winning the last with a star and an Azul tapatia on Averno in the middle.
6) La Máscara, Rush, Titán b Mr. Águila, Psicosis, Volador Jr.
Tencicos took 2/3, Rush & Mascara getting clean pins in the third. La Mascara pointed out he’d beaten Invasors two weeks in a row, and challenged for a trios title match. Rush & Titan supported him, and the Invasors agreed – though there was lots of talk about mask or hair matches to come, and Psicosis threw out a challenge for Mascara’s title.

Show was okay. Title match came out of left field and doesn’t feel like a chance for a title change. Maybe it’s a chance for Aguila to get a convincing win so people won’t suspect he’s losing his hair. Maybe the story will be how Rush reacts if his team loses.

CMLL (SUN) 06/23/2013 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Índigo b Samael (Guadalajara)
2) El Divino & Virgo b Acertijo & Jocker
Tecnicos took 1/3.
3) Esfinge & León Blanco b Mr. Trueno & Rey Trueno
tecnicos took 1/3, Blanco plancha on Rey Trueno
4) Leo b StarmanGalloSmakerHalcón de PlataArkángel de la MuerteEspectrumRáfagaMaléficoExterminador [Copa 54 Anniversario]
Exterminador replaced Olimpico. Battle royal set sides. Eliminations: Halcon de Plata (Exterminador), Exterminador (foul on Smaker), Smaker (Espectrum), Espectrum (Rafaga), Starman (Leo), Rafaga (Gallo), Gallo (Arkangel), Arkangel (Leo), Malefico (Leo) leaving Leo as the winner. Americo Rocca and Gran Markus Jr. were honored after the match.
5) Atlantis & Valiente DQ Gran Guerrero & Último Guerrero
Tecnicos took 2/3, Ultimo Guerrero fouling Atlantis for the DQ. This sets up a singles match next week.

So much for me assuming the Puebla match would be their last singles match for the time being.

X-Fly beat lost to Dr. Cerebro in their IWRG hair match. More results tomorrow.

IWL announced they’re now affiliated with Pro Wrestling Freedom. Pro Wrestling Freedom turns out to be a small promotion in Kentucky. Of the 50 or so people on the roster, I had only heard of one woman; they’re much smaller stars in their country than even the IWL guys are in theirs. Mad Man Pondo is listed as alumni. This sounds like a very IWL deal.

Piratas defend their gold, AAA in Leon & Tijuana, CMLL preview

photo by Black Terry Jr.

IWRG (THU) 06/13/2013 Arena Naucalpan [Black Terry Jr. (flickr), Estrellas del Ring]
1) Fulgor I b Seiya
2) Imposible & Picudo Jr. b Ángel Del Amor & Mr. Magia (2013)
Mr. Magia is said to be making his debut, so not the one from last year.
3) Centvrión, Dinamic Black, Golden Magic b Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro [super libre]
Centvrion hurt his knee in the second fall to a hospital. 911 pulled Dinamic’s mask again, but Dinamic rolled him up anyway for the win. Dinamic wants a shot at 911′s Rey del Ring.
4) Decnnis, Hijo de Máscara Año 2000, Scorpio Jr. b Chico Che, Pantera, Veneno
Guapito fouled Veneno and Scorpio pinned him for the win.
5) Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Pirata Morgan, Pirata Morgan Jr. b Eterno, Súper Nova, X-Fly [IWRG IC TRIOS]
Piratas took 1/3, when Super Nova twice hit Eterno with dives by mistake. Pirata submitted X-Fly for the win. Piratas’s second defense.

Last Thursday’s show was taped for AYM/LAS. This week’s Thursday show was not taped at all.

AAA quietly has a taping today in Leon. It’s been understandable lost in the TripleMania build up, because it’s a show apparently being taped before AAA’s biggest show of the year to air after. Not much can happen, though a lot of the major people from the TripleMania show will be on this one. Perro & Cibernetico are the exceptions, but all three guys in the heavyweight championship picture and many of those battling for the tag team championship are on this show. The scheduled main event is Chessman, Texano, and Villano IV vs Canek, Mesias and La Parka, which is a much odder set off teams than when this show was first announced. Canek is a rudo on TripleMania teaming with V4 but facing him here. Mesias also may be a rudo by the end of TripleMania. Chessman and Texano are definitely not friends too, but how much AAA of that wants to play out is questionable.

Electroshock & Heavy Metal take on Mascara Ano 2000 Jr. & Silver King in the semimain, with another Secta vs Perros del Mal encounter in the fourth match. Steve Pain makes his AAA TV debut teaming with Carta Brava & Eterno against Angelico, Drago and Jack Evans, and the second match continues the Atomic Boy vs Apache feud in a mixed trios. There’s an opener, but the participants have not been listed (and I’d guess it’s local guys given they’re announcing Eterno in a match.)

The 2nd & the 3rd matches seem like the sort of matches which would air on Fusion, which would make this only a single week of TV for AAA Sin Limite. The problem with that is AAA hasn’t announced any tapings post TripleMania, and would need to be taping next weekend if Leon is going to last only one week. (Maybe TripleMania will air on TV after all?)

Cibernetico, Perro Aguayo Jr., Flamita, Pentagon Jr., Jennifer Blake and others are in Tijuana tonight, part of a The Crash show. Cibernetico and Perro Aguayo have a singles match two days before their hair match, and others are involved in a cruiserweight title tournament.

CMLL’s Arena Mexico show’s main event pushes the perennial Ultimo Guerrero vs Atlantis and La Sombra vs Volador Jr. feuds, with the odd ball combination of Titan and Pierroth rounding out the trios. Many of the guys who’ve made recent hair match challenges are bunched together in the semifiinal, so that should end with even more challenges. Dragon Rojo vs Rey Cometa is the lightning match, back for one week with no En Busca de un Idolo singles matches. That tournament continues with a Negro Casas, Stuka, Valiente vs Virus, Vangelis, Fuego. (I may not be able to record that; this would be a good week to message me when the live stream turns up.) NJPW’s Bushi debuts here in a good looking tercera, but everything is probably going shorter than usual with six trios and one singles match tonight.

R de Rudo, Estrellas del Ring and MedioTiempo have stories about AAA’s annual pilgrimage parade. A lot the same as every year, though it looks like they got COMEX to sponsor it this year. As usual, there’s mystery people in big group picture – who’s the guy in the Tinieblas style mask?

Frequent retiree Vampiro says he’s back full time and signed a five year deal. Riiiiiiiight. I’ve been concerned on Chessman’s behalf for a while about how AAA keeps calling him Vampire Killer and even though I doubt any five year deal in lucha libre, this fits with that concern. I’d recommend Chessman not climb up any tall objects or set up any tables on Sunday.

La Lucha se la Hace, the SLP based lucha show I’ve been posting for the last few months, will now start airing on Mexicanal Sundays at 5pm central. The quality of the webstream has been pretty poor, so this might be much improved if it airs as scheduled. (Which reminds me, the GALLI show never aired on either of the two announced times.)

Rompe Huesos looks back at other TripleMania hair match.

Kcidis has a drawing of Fuerza and Juventud Guerrera for Father’s Day. Fuerza is smiling, which seems totally unlike him unless Octagon is slumped on the ground nearby.

A press release on TripleMania’s iPPV notes 26% of their website traffic comes from other countries.

Sadica wants a title match with LLF champ Angelica.

Local luchadors were honored in Arena Coliseo Mexicali.

Perico moonsaulted Samael and Centinela
3) Oficial AK47, Pantera I, Slash, Suicida b Camikaze, Freelance, Super Boing, Super Pascual
Super Boing, Super Pascual, and Camikaze are Las Frutas. AK-47 beat Super Boing.
4) Fresero Jr., Lolita, Ninja de Fuego b Pasion Kristal, Pentagón Jr., Sexy Lady
Pentagon beat Fresero
5) Ludark Shaitan b Crazy Mary [Copa Femenil Extrema IWL]
expected hardcore match.
6) Carta Brava I, Cerebro Negro, Fantasma de la Ópera b Cíclope, Niko, Pagano and Epitafio, Leviatham, Rocky Santana and Scorpio Jr., Tony Rivera, Zumbudo and Black Terry, Dinamic Black, Dr. Cerebro and Drastik Boy, Paranoiko, Super Mega and Eterno, Súper Nova, X-Fly and Argenis, Drago, Fénix
Ultimo Gladiador replaced Super Nova. Ciclope was the mystery luchador on his team. Preshow press conference had built up the AULL/IWL rivarlry, and team IWL won.
7) Monster Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown b Ángel o Demonio, León Rojo, Ovett [IWL TRIOS]
Clowns won the trios titles back with a distraction from Rocky Santana

The opener, who’s names I’m sure of so no listed here, was the only match to get money thrown in. Luchador count: 62! There looks to be so many people standing on the apron during the 4 way atomicos, I don’t know how anyone saw the match. Outdoor arena looked about a 1/4 full (and also looked like it would be a great venue if full.)  Ludark’s match is on her YouTube channel. The entire show looks to have been taped for TVC Deportes.

CMLL (MON) 06/10/2013 Arena Puebla [El Popular]
1) Ares, Espíritu Maligno, Saurón b Águila Egipcia, Meyer, Tigre Rojo Jr.
Aguila Egipcia’s debut here.
2) Hombre Bala, Stigma, Super Halcon b Arkángel de la Muerte, Disturbio, Nitro
3) Blue Panther, Fuego, Sagrado DQ Morphosis, Olímpico, Vangelis
Morphosis fouled Blue Panther. Fuego listed as wrestling again.
4) Diamante Azul, La Sombra, Máscara Dorada b Mr. Niebla, Pierroth, Terrible
Diamante Azul replaced Shocker, Terrible replaced Gran Guerrero. Pierroth’s debut (under that name; last here in July 2003 under his last name.) Azul beat Niebla with the German suplex.
5) Atlantis b Último Guerrero
Atlantis took fall won with a rana, Ultimo Guerrero took second with a powerbomb with his feet on the ropes. UG tried to use the Atlantida in the third, but Atlantis escaped and beat him.

Popular lists Fuego as working this show, but then they had him working last week’s show and it turned out to be Stigma instead. This is important because Fuego’s scheduled to wrestle tonight in the final night of the first round of the En Busca de un Idolo, in a classic “win and get a lot of votes and get some favorable reviews and make sure they never fix their scoring typo” situation.

Fuego is 65 points behind Fantasma based on CMLL’s standings. It should be 67, but they’ve embarssingly never fixed a wrong score. As of the moment, Fuego would get 28 points more than Fantasma from the poll, which leaves Fuego with 38 points to pick up tonight. It turns out Fuego has averaged 18 points from the judges, and that and 20 points from a win would give exactly the number he needs. The trailing people in the polls have gotten more points than they earned most every week, so Fuego probably needs to get closer to 24 to feel any safe. Fuego faces Misterioso tonight and as bad as Misterioso has done for himself, his opponents have averaged 25 points from the judges so far. That would be plenty.

And yet, we don’t know if Fuego is actually okay. He’ll probably fight because luchadors are crazy people who fight when they should not – which is the same reason I’d assume Stuka and Mistico will also be on tonight’s card – but there’s a chance for mass chaos here.

CMLL Gaceta has a preview of tonight’s show, where the Avernos are dismissive of the Estetas and the entire concept of championships. “We do not need the trios titles to know we’re the best team in world”, says Ephesto.  Perhaps they’re slightly bitter they were left out.

Parka Negra said on Twitter he was in a car accident with Super Parka. Actually, he says “I finally awoke from a car accident”, which sounds not good at all, but he says he’s okay.

AAA announced mexican born UFC fighter Erik “Goyito” Perez will second Octagon at TripleMania. AAA’s been working on this since Perez mentioned he was a fan of Octagon growing up and wore an Octagon inspired mask to the octagon for a UFC fight. (It appears he also generally likes lucha libre; he posted photos with Volador Jr. and Volador Sr. a couple weeks ago.) I would expect Perez does something that’ll can be used as a highlight elsewhere, and that AAA will want to stay close to Perez and MMA as time goes on.

The lucha show over the weekend in New York with Blue Demon, Bestia, Damian, and Extreme Tiger among others drew poorly and many wrestlers did not get paid. It’s different promoters, but there seems to be a bad track record with New York based lucha libre promotions.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update, including results from Cancun. Thunder worked the show. Los Colisenos says the Thunder Facebook linked to last week is a fake account, though frustratingly in a fashion where no one could have known what he was talking about.

Texano reassures the world that Texano will not be losing his title at TripleMania. I feel better.

Apolo Valdes mentioned this year’s Lucha Libre Expo will be November 8-10th. Probably more coming tomorrow.

Final of an eight team tournament. Winner becomes 25th champions.

This tournament seems set up for Estetas del Aire winning to popularize them as the great new team – but are you really going to be able to popularize a CMLL trio on the day of TripleMania?

It’s great Dark Angel is back, but that match also needed Silueta and like three more. Oh well. I still haven’t gotten to the matches with Lluvia yet, maybe she’s awesome now.

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.)

6) Aero Boy & Black Fire vs Draztick Boy & Rey Latino and Demente Extreme & Séptimo Dragón and Draego & Tony Rodríguez
Dreago & Tony Rodriguez represent GDL’s NWG promotion.
7) Araña De Plata Jr, Ciclope, Loco Max, Pequeno Cobra vs ?, Drabek, Mr. Rebelde, Ursus [cage, hair, mask]
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
3) Hormiga vs Black Fire, Septimo Dragon, Galaxy, Aranita, Rey Angel, Araña de Plata Jr.
4) Super Mega vs Paranoiko, Dement Extremee, Chica Yeye, Centella Inca, Rey Latino, Alex Guajardo
5) Eita vs Flamita, Principe Halcon, Angel Del Misterio, Hacker [DTU ALTO]
Eita is the champion
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.

Guerrero versus…Garza, Skeletons vs Pirates, Dr. Xtreme,

(photo by CMLL)

CMLL (FRI) 08/05/2011 Arena Mexico [CMLLRecord]
1) Metálico & Starman b Disturbio & Inquisidor
Straight falls. In the second, Disturbio took a Starman flying plancha off Metalico’s shoulders, and Metalico cradled Inquisidor for the win. Disturbio had a bloody nose after the match.
2) Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Warrior, Pierrothito b Bam Bam, Fantasy Shockercito, Último Dragoncito
Warrior powerbombed Shockercito into the corner, then Pierothito put on his hold for the win.
3) Sangre Azteca b Raziel [lightning]
Counter dropkick for the win in 8:20. What in the world was Raziel doing on the top rope?
4) Fuego, Metal Blanco, Palacio Negro b Euforia, Hijo del Signo, Virus
Fuego defeated Virus in the third.
5) Ángel de Oro, Delta, Shocker b Ephesto, Mephisto, Pólvora
Tecnicos took 2/3. Angel de Oro dove on Mephisto, and Shocker and Angel de Oro pinned the other two.
6) Atlantis, Héctor Garza, La Máscara b Dragón Rojo Jr., Mr. Niebla, Último Guerrero
Straight fall win. Excessive violence DQ in the first for beating up Garza, then Garza pinned UG in the second after a moonsault. Garza challenged UG for a title shot, his fifth, and UG accepted. Ultimo in turn challenged Atlantis to pick a side!

Feels like they’re just going to do the tease all the way to September.

Mr. Niebla has new music. I have no idea why you’d do that.

IWRG (THU) 08/04/2011 Arena Naucalpan [Black Terry Jr. (flickr)Mi Lucha Libre (2)Mi Lucha Libre (3)Mi Lucha Libre (4)The Gladiatores]
1) Dark Devil & El Imposible b Dragon Fly & Sky Angel
2) Alan Extreme, Bugambilia del Norte, Centurión b Comando Negro, Keshin Black, Polifacético
Alan Extreme replaced the mysterious Titan. Comando Negro and Bugambilia, from Chihuahua, are feuding.
3) Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro, Oficial Spartans b Dinamic Black, el Ángel, Golden Magic, Multifacético
4) Hijo de LA Park, Trauma I, Trauma II DQ Apolo Estrada Jr., Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Veneno
Veneno was the unlisted member of the Pirata side. The Park/Traumas team were the psuedo-tecnico side for the night. They took 2/3, Park tossing his mask to Morgan for the DQ

Other News

Dr. X held a press conference yesterday to officially announce his departure from CMLL. CMLL owns the Dr. X name, so he’ll now be going by Dr. Xtreme. (Depending on who’s recap you read, it’s spelled that way, or it’s spelled X-Treme, or it’s spelled Extreme and Xtreme in the same post. ) He’ll debut on tonight’s Perros del Mal show in Atizapan, and did a promo for it on their facebook. Dr. Xtreme says he’s talked to AAA, and it sounds like he’ll just be doing any work that comes his way.

Guerrero Maya Jr. returns to action this weekend. He’s claiming Ultimo Guerrero actually hurt his arm, and Negro just took advantage of it the next week. Amazing how many things seem to revolve around Ultimo Guerrero.

This week’s Ras de Lona, at the Police Museum, included a lot of minis talking about the big minis tournament. Oddly, Mascarita Dorada, Demus 3:16, Mercurio and Aereo talked about as if they were in it, but those four were specifically not included in Thursday’s list of names. Others talked about facing same side luchadors in apuesta matches, which isn’t actually possible in the format they announced. Poor quality control

AAA says tickets will go on sale for it’s 08/19 Queretaro show on Monday. Hopefully, we’ll get a lineup or anything to talk about with them.

WON says the Sin Cara returning this Tuesday in WWE looks to be Hunico (Incognito/Mystico de Juarez – had a dark match this past week on one of the shows), and it’s possible he may be taking the role over from Mistico. That’d be crazy.

luchadb, now with video

As of yesterday, the luchadb now includes links to video links of matches, in-line to the results. If you click on the filmstrip icon, the video will open in a separate page. Matches with multiple filmstrip icons have multiple parts, and I’ve tried to put in time codes to start the video at the actual start of the match where ever possible. Videos are linked to on my channels (both YouTube and DailyMotion), Black Terry Jr.’s channel, MrAlexisCMLL, Warriorx2000, Retros80s90s, LuchaLibreEnMexico and others. The filmstrip icons should eventually show up where ever the match is listed, though the dumb way I’ve designed the site means it may take a while. I did rebuild the main events database (‘cmll/events/’), so they should be there, and they will appear if you use the Match Finder (which has also been slightly changed.)

I’ve been working on this for months; it’s a slower process than I’d like, but a lot of it is catching up thru old footage and sorting out where matches start and end. I’m hoping this will be less intensive once I’m just looking for new channels. There are 2,327 matches linked as of now, with probably another 500 in the queue to be cataloged.

How you can help:

  • Keep putting lucha libre video up on the internet!
  • Recommendations for YouTube channels to look at are always helpful.
  • If you are putting up video, consider slicing it up so the matches are the start of the segment and are easier to identify
  • Suggestions about how to better use these links!

Bucanero following treasure map to gold, Amapola wins (as usual), Sin Cara

Bam Bam

CMLL (TUE) 06/14/2011 Arena Mexico [CMLL, Record]
1) Höruz & Robin b Artillero & Súper Comando
2) Astral, Bam Bam, Shockercito b Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Olímpico, Pequeño Warrior
3) Dr. X, Loco Max, Nitro DQ Ángel Azteca Jr., Ángel de Plata, Fuego
straight falls for the rudos, with Fuego yanking off Dr. X’s mask in the second. It was no accident this time, Fuego just got annoyed and pulled his mask off.
4) Dragón Rojo Jr., Héctor Garza, Olímpico b Black Warrior, Sangre Azteca, Valiente
Rudos took 1/3.
5) Rey Bucanero b La Sombra, Blue Panther, Atlantis, Máximo, Texano, Felino, Sagrado [NWA LH, cibernetico, semifinal]
First four out were Sagrado (via Felino), Felino (Blue Panther), Texano (Sombra), Maximo (Atlantis). Atlantis and Panther were having it out in the middle of the ring when Bucanero & Sombra each pulled them into cradles. Bucanero beat Sombra with the Buca Destroyer for the win. He faces Fantasma next week.

 

Hmm, cursed guy or long time tag partner of the guy added to the programming department? The Fantasma curse is completely over if he can pull this one off.

CMLL (TUE) 06/14/2011 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [Fuego en el Ring]
1) Virgo b Leo
2) Camaleón & Trueno b Exterminador & Templario
rudo team could not work together.
3) Guerrero Maya Jr., Hombre Bala, Starman b Arkángel de la Muerte, Ráfaga, Skándalo
4) Amapola b Lluvia [CMLL WOMEN]
Lluvia took the first fall, but the champ won the last two to hand onto her belt
5) La Máscara & Toscano b Mr. Águila & Volador Jr.
Toscano replaced Rush (who the recap mentions had been behaving badly here of late.) Rudos took the first, tecnicos took the last two and three clean.

We have that as defense #22 for Amapola, Lluvia’s second try.

Other News

Ultimo Guerrero tells Terra “I think the time of the Guerreros de Atlantida is just about over.” Ultimo is not pleased with Atlantis for taking Shocker’s spot in the Forjando un Idolo, and he may have to part ways if it ends up costing Ultimo 3 points on Friday. UG already has plans for the breakup: Dragon Rojo can stay, and Escorpion takes Atlantis’ spot.

Do you want to see La Mascara vs Averno? Then you probably need to book a ticket to Mexico City right now. CMLL Gaceta says the match will not air on TV on the Saturday show, and the new policy is these sorts of matches will not air anywhere for six months – which would probably mean the December recap/highlight season. Two quick points here

1) CMLL is a promotion in Mexico City that really only cares about Mexico City, and more specifically the number of seats filled in Arena Mexico. This is a great push to get people in the city to make sure they come to your show (and make sure it’s the show they have to see in person if they see any show that weekend, hint.) The world outside the borders of Distrio Federal can take a long walk off a short pier. Any debate about CMLL taking action because of their national TV rating is pointless, because they don’t care! (You can make a debate about Televisa doing something, if you must.)

2) Even CMLL is admitting Maximo & Brazo de Plata vs Doble T was not a big deal match now! I don’t think that was supposed to happen there.

A quick note about the Sin Cara/CMLL copyright deal: people are misunderstanding what that is. Sin Cara will be able to use that name in Mexico while in WWE without a problem, and they’ll be able to sell t-shirts and masks and all sorts of usual things. The only way that can’t happen is if CMLL sues to protect their copyright, and they won’t do that because they’ll surely lose. Unless Mexican law works strangely, it doesn’t matter that CMLL got it in a couple weeks earlier if it’s clear that’s WWE came up with the idea (and it is.) This will have no affect on WWE and CMLL is hoping WWE doesn’t ever even notice their claim.

This is not about WWE. This is a pre-empetive strike on Sin Cara himself. If he leaves WWE and comes back to Mexico, he won’t be able to use the Mistico in Mexico because CMLL owns that, and now he won’t be able to use the Sin Cara name either (if this holds up). Sin Cara could also take CMLL to court over it, but it’ll be a lot tougher for an individual and personally expensive. In theory, CMLL could bring him back to their promotion to use either name, but that’s unlikely to happen without a change in ownership. Sin Cara will more likely be stuck changing to yet another name. (Probably something starting with an ‘A’.)

Lineups

CMLL (MON) 06/20/2011 Arena Puebla
1) Tigre Rojo & Tigre Rojo Jr. vs Ares & Fuerza Chicana
2) Metálico, Stigma, Trueno vs Bobby Zavala, Puma King, Tiger Kid
3) Ángel Azteca Jr., Ángel de Plata, Guerrero Maya Jr. vs Arkángel de la Muerte, Loco Max, Skándalo
4) Hijo del Fantasma, Metro, Sagrado vs Histeria, Olímpico, Vangelis
5) La Máscara, La Sombra, Rush vs Averno, Mephisto, Mr. Niebla

I don’t have full results for Monday’s Puebla show, but the locals vs Tuareg match ended with the Tuareg just winning and the locals giving them credit for being good wrestlers. Scratch that idea for the July anniversary show.

Looks like the week after Juicio Final shows are all going to be “see Averno or La Mascara unmasked for the first time!” everywhere.

I guess Tigre Rojo turned back tecnico when that feud with the Black Tiger’s disappeared?

CMLL (SUN) 06/19/2011 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Javier Cruz Jr. vs Metalik
2) Hombre Bala Jr. & Super Halcon Jr. vs Malefico & Ráfaga
3) Shockercito & Último Dragoncito vs Olímpico & Pequeño Violencia
4) Metal Blanco, Palacio Negro, Stuka Jr. vs Puma King, Rey Escorpion, Tiger Kid
5) Black Warrior, La Sombra, Valiente vs Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas, Pólvora

Card is totally different than the one I posted earlier in the week. Semimain is a rematch, but we never got the results from last Sunday.

CMLL (WED) 06/22/2011 Arena Queretaro
1) 1 & 2 vs 3 & 4
2) 1, 2, 3 vs 4, 5, 6
3) Disturbio & Principe vs Alex Guajardo & Galaxy
4) Dalys la Caribeña, Dark Angel, Marcela vs Amapola, Princesa Blanca, Princesa Sugheit
5) La Máscara & La Sombra vs Averno & Mephisto

Wednesday! Tuesday is the traditional date here. Possibly because the La Mascara & Averno show is in Guadalajara that night?

I assume that’s a different Disturbio or it’s a relevlos match or there’s some Queretaro angle going on the rest of us are not privileged to.

Virus advances, Averno, Shocker

CMLL (TUE) 05/31/2011 Arena Mexico [CMLL, Record (1-2;4-5), Record (3)]
1) Freesbe & Trueno b Camorra & Zayco
2) Demus 3:16, Pequeño Universo 2000, Pequeño Warrior b Astral, Fantasy, Shockercito
Astral replaced Mascarita Dorada
3) Virus b Fuego, Metal Blanco, Tiger Kid, Dragon Lee, Sensei, Super Halcon Jr., Pegasso [cibernetico, CMLL SL, semifinal]
Teams were Tiger/Sensei/Halcon/Virus vs Pegasso/Blanco/Dragon Lee/Fuego. Eliminations were Pegasso (via Dragon Lee), Halcon (Dragon Lee), Sensei (Metal Blanco), Dragon Lee (Tiger Kid), Tiger Kid (Fuego), Metal Blanco (Virus). Final two were Fuego and Virus, with Virus putting on a “Motocicleta” (one legged campana has a name!) for the win. Virus vs Guerrero Maya for the title next week.
4) Sagrado, Sangre Azteca, Stuka Jr. b Shigeo Okumura, Vangelis, Yoshihashi
Tecnicos took 1/3. Sangre used the counter dropkick to beat Okumura. I didn’t know tecnicos could use that move.
5) Héctor Garza, Psicosis, Volador Jr. b Máximo, Rush, Super Porky
Rudos took 1/3, winning easily in the third.

Next week show is a Fan Appreciation show. There seemed to be a new fame ring announcer on this show.

Rodolfo Ruiz, Averno’s father and CMLL referee, says Averno is going to the WWE.

Shocker says he’s not sure if he’ll wrestle in Friday. He hasn’t actually been cleared to return, but is visiting the doctor this morning. (He did not sound that positive about it on Twitter.  Shocker says he does not mind CMLL stripping him of his the NWA LH title, saying the company has to give opportunity to younger people and hopes they have an outstanding match for the title.

On Sunday, Ultimo Guerrero went to Guatemala’s FMLL promotion and won their Champion Du Monde over Voltron. Ultimo Guerrero was originally said to be defend the Universal Title (which Lyger has) and then just the CMLL World Title. It sure looks like the actual belt he brought to the ring with the UWE Tag Team Championship. Just weird.
