This Memes show seemed a little lost in the attention for the Puebla show in a couple weeks – I blanked on mentioning it on Saturday – but they seemed to have drawn a nice crowd for the show. Hechicero/Solar sounds like the match of the night, though probably in a very specific style.
IWRG (SUN) 05/21/2017 Arena Naucalpan [+LuchaTV, Estrellas del Ring, The Gladiatores]
1) Atomic Star b Keiser Drago
2) Shaolin b Lunatic Xtreme
3) Oficial AK47 & Oficial Fierro b Apolo Estrada Jr. & Eterno
Eterno replaced Apolo Estrada Jr. (and so they were back together as Los Insoportables.)
4) Villano III Jr. b Aramis
5) Cerebro Negro, Heddi Karaoui, Hijo de Pirata Morgan b Black Dragón, Dinamic Black, Veneno
6) Dr. Cerebro b Freelance
7) Danny Casas, Imposible, Mr. Electro b Black Warrior, Trauma I, Trauma II
Team Imposible took 2/3 (and worked as tecnicos.) Imposible submitted Trauma II. He was not the captain, but Black Warrior was annoyed about Trauma II losing and attacked his partners, allowing himself to get beat.
Imposible ended up very bloody in the main event before winning anyway.
On his podcast, Dave Meltzer said he was told La Mascara has only been suspended at this point, not fired. There’s no other update on the situation. CMLL has made no card changes and said nothing about what occurred so far.
La Mascara was scheduled to appear on tonight’s show in Arena Puebla. He probably won’t be there. Rush & Pierroth will team with someone else to take on Marco, Mascara 2000 and Mr. Niebla, in what seemed to be setting up Rush/Niebla match. The main event has the Guerreros taking on Atlantis, Mistico and Valiente in what should be a quick tecnico showcase. Niebla Roja is listed on the rudo side in the tercera, so he’ll probably end betraying Dragon Rojo & Polvora tonight and at Angel de Oro’s side at the end of the match. The show has a women’s match (no Zeuxis) and a locals + Camorra opener. The show will air at 9pm on YouTube.
Elsehwere in Puebla, Toro Bill Jr. and Rey Apocalipsis ended up feuding and ripping each other’s masks in the main event of the Promolucha show on Saturday. They both appear to still be rudos, but just feuding ones. Whoever’s in charge of booking the Puebla guys onto the Monday show must be aware of what’s going on (so someone local), since they stopped teaming on those shows a few weeks ago, but the Batilon del Muerte seems no more.
There’s really no reason to show the trailer for Friday’s show – no one will miss it, it has Maximo in it – but they show it every week so I wonder if they’ll just show it anyway.
Kevin Kross beat Dr. Wagner in Tijuana in a tag match with Ayako Hamada and Kobra Moon. Kross snuck in a foul to win. Octagoncito wrestled under that name, then ran in later as Mini Rey Misterio.
Estrellita is listed on a Cholo de Tijuana show in Acapulco on May 31st, but says she will not be working that show.
(Via R de Rudo) A group of pranksters made a compilation video of them tricking people into standing still for a selfie picture with one person, then having other people run in from behind to either throw a bucket of water on them, or to kiss them if it was a woman. La Hiedra was one of the woman who was kissed, and she isn’t happy about it. This video comes off less like hilarious pranks and more like them being jerks; the bits where they just walk by people and squirt something at them comes off as cruel.
Lucha Libre in Japan
That’s a bad run. Volador is 1-2, Dragon Lee is 2-1. It’s hard to advance with 2 losses and it’s pretty much impossible to do so with three, so Volador would have to win all his remaining matches to make it to the final. (It’s probably not happening.)
