1) Arkalis & Tigre Rojo Jr. b El Malayo & Guerrero Espacial
2) Astral, Astro, Eléctrico b Espíritu Maligno, Pierrothito, Saurón Espiritu Maligno was hurt on a Astral move in the second fall and left the match.

4) Kráneo, Rey Escorpión, Ripper b Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr., Máximo

Mistico continues to have bad injury luck in this arena, but it sounds as though it wasn’t severe this time.
In a correction from yesterday, Arena Coliseo Guadalajara are not moving back to Sunday shows. Their secondary show will remain on Friday. Just appears to be a misunderstanding.
PWInsider reports Dark Angel is a guest trainer at WWE’s NXT facility this week. (Nonpopup source here.) WWE routinely brings in various current and former wrestlers as week long guest trainers. Occasionally, if the trainers click over many visits and if the trainer is interested, they may be brought in full time.
Today’s CMLL Arena Mexico show has Atlantis, La Mascara, and Dragon Lee versus Terrible, Rey Bucanero and Kamaitachi, with CMLL talking about this possibly setting up a Kamaitachi/Dragon Lee title match. The Panthers and Comando Boricuas are back at each other, and the lightning match is Virus vs Fuego. Guadalajara has Sky Team vs Guerreros, which may also set up a title match, though both may be a couple weeks off yet to put them close to Kid’s Day.

1) Bengala & Molotov b Apocalipsis & Cholo

a show of no news. I don’t think I’ll be getting requests for ClaroSports next week.
WWE announced a new batch of trainees at NXT, which includes a masked man named Oscar Vasquez. That’s Ciudad Juarez/El Paso’s Magno, who’s been in TNA and was a featured luchador on Lucha Libre USA. He was the current Sin Cara’s tag team partner back before Incognito joined WWE. Magno was still working indy shows as recently as two weeks ago. He’s the current NWA Welterweight Champion, so I guess that title is going away. (Hooray.)
CMLL (SUN) 04/19/2015Arena México

Really looking forward to CMLL getting bored with the TGR trio and forgetting to book them together. (It only took about a couple months for them to get bored with Comando Boricua.)
Semimain sets up the 04/26 main event against Peste Negra. The Panthers and Reyes del Atlantida seem like 50/50 bets, and favorites to win the titles next week. It’s way too soon to do that with Blue Panther Jr., but that hasn’t stopped CMLL yet.
CMLL (SAT) 04/18/2015Arena Coliseo
1) Fantasy vs Mercurio
2) Sensei vs El Rebelde

Look, they forgot to team up TGR here. It appears Silueta is Narumiya’s title challenger.

Guys running in the opener to lead into the segunda is very unusual in CMLL, but maybe they just wanted to cover a guy working twice.

1) Pequeño Olímpico b Angelito

CMLL’s Twitter wrote about the first four matches from tonight’s Arena Mexico show, then just stopped, then still hasn’t posted a report five hours later. I sometimes feel the same level of boredom with CMLL shows, I can empathize.
CMLL, in CMLL fashion, announced the Arena Mexico Anniversary show would take place on 04/26 show and pushed it as a big show. It’s positioned as a Kid’s Day show (though it’d make sense if that Friday’s 05/01 show is also a Kid’s Day one.) They’ve got a tie in with a university and should fill the place. This means CMLL may actually book storylines at some point to build to that show.
indy (SAT) 04/11/2015 Ex Balneario Olímpico, Ciudad de México, Distrito Federal [Black Terry Jr. (flickr), Estrellas del Ring] 1) Ángel Jr. & Lokillo b Ave Negra & Ironía 2) Extremo & Payaso De Plata b Power Bull & Psyque 3) Fly Star, Metaleón, Mr. Leo, Toxin Boy b Águila Misteriosa, Centvrión, Fulgor I, Fulgor II Mr. Leo & Metaleon are #HIGHLION. Metaleon overshot everyone on a springboard tornillo, and landed head first on cement. It looked brutal, but he apparently is OK. Medical assistance was there quick and he was put in a neck brace. Match was stopped while he was treated, then resumed with out Aguila Misteriosa to keep the sides even. Winners dedicated their win to Metaleon. 4) Fly Metalik, Terremoto, Wotam b Demasiado, Diva Salvaje, Estrella Divina Wotan hurt his knee on a plancha to the outside 5) Leo, Mike, Rafy, Teelo b Kilvan, Rey Lobo Jr., Shadow, Yoruba Turtles took 2/3, despite Rafy being thrown into the pool
Last week’s +LuchaTV never aired on TV, but was placed on their YouTube channel on Saturday. Today, instead of a new episode, there was a repeat episode of Leyendas Inmortales from the previous production crew, with updated upcoming event info – so something’s been changed here. I hope we still get more +LuchaTV but that doesn’t seem good.
Chilanga Mask (SAT) 05/16/2015Arena Roberto Paz, Guadalajara, Jalisco

Good card: interesting veteran main event, semimain with a talented local guy getting a big chance, a trios match with six very different guys brought together in one match. All the matches have a chance to be good here.
Lucha Underground resumes taping today and tomorrow in Los Angeles. This weekend’s shows will cover June 25th to July 15th, episodes 33 to 36. No word of anyone new showing up, but it’s about the last weekend to add on; the next set of shows will close out the season. If you’re going to the shows, I’d love to get results or any notes from the tapings.
