CMLL (TUE) 05/12/2015 Arena México [CMLL, Yahoo! Deportes]
1) Apocalipsis & Inquisidor b Bengala & Leono
Leono and Bengala screwed up, losing to their loss.
2) Acero, Fantasy, Shockercito b Mercurio, Pequeño Universo 2000, Pequeño Violencia
Acero replaced Stukita. Mercurio tried to foul Shockercito, but Shockercito blocked it and pulled him in a reinera for the win.
3) Boby Zavala, Sangre Azteca, Tiger b Oro Jr., Pegasso, Stigma
4) Ángel de Oro b Ripper [lightning]
Mecedora in 9:15
5) Ephesto, Hechicero, Vangellys b Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr., Stuka Jr.
Stuka Jr. replacd Valiente on Monday. Ephesto trpaped Maya with his cradle.
6) Marco Corleone, Máximo, Valiente DQ Rey Bucanero, Shocker, Terrible
Valiente replaced Rush on Monday. Straight falls, Shocker fouling Maximo in the second.
Hechicero put Stuka in a new hold (above) and asked the fans to come up with a name for it. La Warlock? It seems like both big Shocker (vs Maximo, for the heavyweight title) and small Shocker (the mini vs Mercurio, who’s hair has been getting longer) in the near future. Only one of those feuds actually continues next week though.
The big news from the show is probably the announcement of the 2015 En Busca de un Idolo. There had been rumors CMLL was skipping that competition this year. CMLL had updated the website for that competition about a month ago with the smallest of teases, so it might have been in the planning stages for a while. Esfinge’s vague comment about upcoming tournaments he wanted to be in might also have been about this. We don’t know anything about the competition, especially including if it’ll still air on Terra, outside of the Twitter message announcing it. The timing suggests a video promo aired during the show last night, and CMLL Informa will probably at least reair that.
Today’s Lucha Underground is episode 27, “Ancient Medallions”
- Aerostar vs Jack Evans
- Fenix vs Sexy Star vs The Mack vs Killshot vs Cage vs Cuerno vs Pentagon Jr. for a Medallion
- Alberto el Patron vs Hernandez, winner is #1 contender
Opener is Jack’s debut. He’s not quite the same guy he currently is in AAA. There’s 14 hours left this season, still a lot of time, but you’ll see the start of some stories which will take them all the way to the season finale. (It feels like LU had their top 3 matches for that finale nearly 4 months from now figured out before this block of episodes – before episode 25 – but there are seeds of things even earlier.) The Medallion storyline starts to move characters on one path, and events in the main event will move a lot of characters in different directions.
There’s a Dario office scene released early, but it’s actually more for building to next week’s episode – the trios champions find out a match they’ll be having on 05/20. There’s also a clip of Fenix and Catrina, which is also a preview of upcoming attractions.
This is the first appearance for Sexy Star & Pentagon Jr. since their singles match, and for Mack since the trios tournament wrapped up.
Texano, Psycho Clown and Fantasma insist the importance of representing Mexico in the Lucha World Cup has gotten them to work together in the cup, though Texano says he’s back to feuding with Psycho Clown as soon as it’s over.
Rey Escorpion says he wants a hair match with Ultimo Guerrero, and also claims he, Polvora and Dragon Rojo are getting a new team name this time around.
FULL held a press conference at Carpa Astro to promote their TV taping on Thursday. That’s an old Mexico City stop in the 80s and early 90s; I want to say CMLL event taped TV there once in the early 90s. It’s fitting for the FULL show, another with luchadors from the 80s and 90s. It was announced as the first of four shows at the facility, adding it to Gimnasio Agustin Milan in Toluca as a regular stop for the promotion. +LuchaTV has words about the show from Tinieblas, as part of a ton of new videos on their channel.
CaraLucha announced Volador Jr. will be part of their 05/30 show. CMLL’s own preview for Friday’s Leyendas de Plata is “Mephisto vs Volador!!! and some other people.” +LuchaTV is doing a series on all the Bestiario I contestants: they’ve got Wasson, Puma Galactico, Pegazus, Centella Atomica, Principe Aereo and Heredero Maya so far.
There are many lucha libre shows as political rallies for local candidates in the lead up to the next Mexican election. This one had Blue Demon Jr. and Huracan Ramirez.
SuperLuchas looks back at shows from May 12.
DJ Spectro writes about Rene Guajarado, Alberto Munoz and Sangre Chicana & MS-1 vs Fishman & Perro Aguayo Jr.
Matt D & Segunda Caida writes about Rey Bucanero & Ultimo Guerrero vs Hijo del Santo & Negro Casas from November 2001.
El Popular talked to Delta and Guerrero Maya Jr., who wants to win a mask or a hair.
CMLL (TUE) 05/19/2015 Arena México
1) Metatrón & Molotov vs Espanto Jr. & Inquisidor
2) La Vaquerita & Skadi vs Reyna Isis & Tiffany
3) Hombre Bala Jr., Soberano Jr., Súper Halcón Jr. vs Puma, Raziel, Sangre Azteca
4) Guerrero Maya Jr. vs Virus [lightning]
5) Ángel de Oro, Fuego, Stuka Jr. vs Boby Zavala, Ephesto, Hechicero
6) La Sombra, Máximo, Mistico vs Shocker, Terrible, Vangellys
More Maximo/Shocker, but the minis are off for a challenging women’s match. Maya/Virus in a lightning match is always good, and the tercera looks promising as well.
CMLL (TUE) 05/19/2015 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) El Divino & Linterna Verde Jr. vs El Chakal & Évola
2) Flyer, Magnus, Pepe Aguayo vs Canelo Casas, Metálico, Sádico
3) Blue Panther Jr., The Panther, Tritón vs Kamaitachi, Okumura, Tiger
4) Blue Panther, Super Porky, Valiente vs Kráneo, Morphosis, Rey Escorpión
5) La Máscara, Marco Corleone, Rush vs Ephesto, Euforia, Mephisto
Ingobernables against a rudo trio they don’t usually face. Tercera could be good.
