CMLL (TUE) 05/13/2014 Arena México [CMLL]
1) Pequeño Nitro & Pequeño Violencia b Acero & Fantasy
Rudos took 2/3.
2) Canelo Casas, Disturbio, El Rebelde b Metálico, Oro Jr., Stigma
Straight falls. Metalico wouldn’t let Stigma tag Oro when Oro was in trouble, Oro accidentally dropkicked Metalico, and Metalico attacked Oro Jr. to cause the loss. Metalico beat up Oro and Stigma after the match and Oro was strechered out.
3) Estrellita, Marcela, Skadi b Dalys, La Comandante, Zeuxis
Tecnicos took 1/3, Marcela beat Dalys. Skadi knocked herself with on diving headscissors to the floor on Zeuxis.
4) Cavernario COR Guerrero Negro Jr. [En Busca de un Idolo]
Cavernario won after a suplex from the ring to the floor and top rope splash to the floor. Guest judge was Mephisto and Atlantis replaced Shocker. Cavernario scored a 7 (Mephisto), 9 (Atlantis), 8 (Mr. Niebla) and 8 (Tirantes.) Guerrero Negro scored a 7, 8, 8, and 7.
5) Dragon Lee b Súper Halcón Jr. [En Busca de un Idolo]
Lee beat Super Halcon with the Power-plex in 7:17. Dragon Lee scored a 9, 9, 9, 6. Super Halcon scored a 8, 9, 7, 5.
6) Boby Zavala, Ephesto, Terrible b Blue Panther, Fuego, Rey Cometa
7) Atlantis, Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr. b Euforia, Niebla Roja, Último Guerrero
Tecnicos took 2/3, all the tecnicos putting all the rudos in Atlantidas at the end. Tecnicos challenged for a world trios shot. UG was still focused on the mask match, but Euforia accepted for the team.
Cavernario is a crazy man but Guerrero Negro is equally lunatic. I don’t think he’s leaving CMLL!
En Busca before W6 fan poll: Hechicero 448 Cavernario 374 Cachorro 331 Star 324 Lee 323 Soberano 313 G. Negro 286 Halcón 276
— TKD 117 (@TKD_117) May 14, 2014
I sure hope the top four places matter, or this is over. Cachorro, Star Jr., Dragon Lee and Soberano could end up in any order depending on fan and judges voting. Any of them not winning in Week 7 could also be catastrophic for their chances, but none of them face each other in the final week so it’s possible for CMLL to balance that out. All four would be deserving of making any semifinal round. All four would be tremendous underdogs to Cavernario & Hechicero.
The Guerreros will probably keep the trios titles, but the title match should be a very good match either way.
CMLL (TUE) 05/13/2014 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [@acogdl]
1) Demonio Rojo & Sádico b El Divino & Virgo
Rudos took 2/3.
2) Artillero & Súper Comando b Black Metal & Leo
Rudos took 2/3.
3) Black Panther, Stuka Jr., Tritón b Kamaitachi, Magnum, Shigeo Okumura
Tecnicos took 2/3.
4) Gallo TLDRAW Sangre Azteca [lightning]
10 minute time limit draw! Sangre Azteca may have made challenges for Gallo’s title.
5) Puma & Tiger b Metatrón & Sagrado and Sky Kid & Smaker and El Cuatrero & Sansón
A four way (not a tournament.) Puma defeated Sky Kid, Sagrado defeated Sanson, and Tiger & Puma defeated Metatron & Sagrado for the win.
6) Dragón Rojo Jr., Pólvora, Rey Escorpión b Máscara Dorada, Titán, Volador Jr.
Rudos took 2/3, listed as Rey Escorpion sneaking a foul on Dorada.
Next week’s main event is listed as Volador/Escorpion and there’s a picture of Escorpion pinning Volador, so the main event pinfall result might have been listed incorrectly. Or plans changed.
The Sangre Azteca/Gallo time limit draw was the first in a main CMLL since July 28th (Angel de Oro/Puma.)
AAA held it’s usual local press conference to hype their upcoming tapings, for both Tapachula and Tuxtla Guiterrez. Both are unusual locales for AAA, and it turns out they’re both shows sponsored by the Chiapas state government. Tickets for the Tapachula taping (and probably the Tuxtla show, though it’s not as clear) are free and will be given away by sponsors or in front of the arena on the day of the show. They’ve got room for 3500 fans and should easily fill those seats. In exchange, AAA will air tourism promos on their TV show like has been done for Guerrero Negro and Tepic. This is a deal only AAA is in a position to make because they’re on Televisa and those tourism ads can reach more people.
This also explain the deal with keeping the mystery people a mystery. AAA’s not going to sell any more tickets by advertising them because the tickets are already sold. And, if something falls thru, there’s no one who paid believing they would see Averno or Sin Cara since no one is paying.
Flamita will be defending the Dragon Gate Enter the Brave Gate championship on 05/20 in Arena Aficion after all. Drastick Boy – who will be challenging for the title with Kaleth & Shane Strickland – had said it would be a title match, then it wasn’t listed as one on the poster for the show, but they announced the title would be the on the line at a press conference for the DTU tour last night.
LuchaWorld has five idea on how to replace Averno in the Hijos del Averno.
This week’s SuperLuchas #524 covers the MaskedMania show.
The 05/25 WMC show has a main event of Ultimo Guerrero, Gran Guerrero and Virus versus Black Terry, Hijo del Fishman and Canek Jr.
DJ Spectro writes about the debut of Septiembre Negro. I thought the bit last night where Oro Jr. went into a post match seizure in a deliberate attempt to reference his uncle’s death in the ring was in terrible taste and would be a runaway winner for most disgusting moment in wrestling of the year if it happened in the United State. (To their credit, the announcers did not call much attention to it.) At the same time, it’s one of those things that Mexico has very different attitudes about , just like the Septiembre Negro character.
CMLL has an article about Amapola & La Comandante heading to REINA. They mention it’s 05/22 and say it’s a tour (not a single show), but don’t list a return date.

6) Diamante Azul, Máscara Dorada, Rey Cometa vs Puma, Terrible, Tiger
7) Euforia, Niebla Roja, Último Guerrero vs Atlantis, Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr. [CMLL TRIOS]
Guerreros are champions. First defense.
Semimain should be really good, and is Dorada’s last match here for the time being.
Those are the last two En Busca de un Idolo matches for this round. Polling usually closes quickly after so they can work out the Friday mid tournament trios match.
Metalico’s officially on the rudo side. It’s the same length of time as the Princesa Sugheit turn; they’re moving faster nowadays.
CMLL (TUE) 05/20/2014 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Esfinge & Leo vs Mr. Trueno & Rey Trueno
2) Black Metal, Magnus, Stigma vs Canelo Casas, Demonio Maya, Skándalo

4) La Máscara, La Sombra, Valiente vs Cavernario, Herodes Jr., Rey Bucanero
5) Volador Jr. vs Rey Escorpión
It’s too early to be sure of the new Guerreros del Ring airing pattern, but the main event would not be shown (on 5/31) based on the first week.
Shows Watched But Nothing Made The List
AAA on Televisa: 2014-04-26 – liked Chessman/V4 better than Demon/V4
CMLL on CadenaTres: 2014-04-26
CMLL on Fox Sports (Mexico): 2014-04-26
CMLL Guerreros del Ring on 52MX: 2014-04-26 – Maximo & Rey Escorpion was nothing special.
Matches To Watch Later
Don’t have anything on the list.
CMLL (MON) 05/12/2014 Arena Puebla [Periodico Enfoque, Periodico Enfoque (fotos)]

3) Blue Panther, Stuka Jr., Tritón b Cavernario, Ephesto, Misterioso Jr.
Tecnicos took 2/3.
4) La Máscara, Super Porky, Volador Jr. DQ Gran Guerrero, Niebla Roja, Último Guerrero
Tecnicos took 1/3. Mascara didn’t get along with his teammates, but Ultimo Guerrero gifted the opposition a win by fouling Volador.
5) Diamante Azul b Ripper [NWA LH]
Diamante Azul stayed champion by taking falls 1/3, the last with a German suplex. 3rd defense.
Mistico will be out for four months after his motorcycle accident. CMLL sent out a press release last night explaining the circumstances of his accident reported ten days ago. Mistico was riding his motorcycle to Arena Mexico when he was hit by a white car. His clothes were stuck underneath the car in the accident and the car driver dragged him four meters while trying to escape. Other motorist stopped the driver. The accident took place at 8:20, and Mistico was laying in the street for a half hour before an ambulance picked him up and didn’t get to the hospital until 10. His right tibia and fibula was broken and a rod has been places in his leg from his knee to his ankle. He also broke his right thumb.
Mistico says the doctors originally told him he would be out nine months, but have since lowered it to four months. Fourth months would put Mistico’s return around the anniversary show. Hopefully that’s a coincidence and Mistico takes all the time he needs to recover. He says he’s following all the doctors instructions so he can get back to the ring.
Tonight’s CMLL show has the Guerreros versus Atlantida, which should set up a trios title match next week. The En Busca de un Idolo matches are Dragon Lee vs Super Halcon Jr. and Cavernario vs Guererro Negro Jr., where Dragon Lee & Guerrero Negro both need wins if they’re going to stay within reach of fourth. The undercard also includes Metalico & Oro Jr. trying to get along in the semimain.
The May ChilangaMask is canceled after trouble between the promotion and CMLL (and Arkangel de la Muerte.) There’s a video explaining the situation here.
Dave the Clown, previously seen jumping the rail and hugging Psycho Clown on the last Gimnasio Juan de la Barrera, posted a match supporting Psycho Clown against Texano in their upcoming title match. AAA retweeted Dave, which suggests this is a ongoing storyline and we probably haven’t seen the last of Dave.
Rob has highlights of 02/18/14 CMLL.
Sexy Star says she’ll be in Jhonny Gonzalez’s corner in his next boxing match on 05/24 in Acapulco, as payback for Gonzalez helping train her and Pentagon Jr. for their mixed tag title match. Not sure if Pentagon Jr. is also going, but neither are listed on the TV taping the night prior.
A travel blog visits Arena Mexico. I feel like I’ve read fifty of these sort of articles, and Maximo is always the start of the show to people watching lucha libre for the first time.
Dr. Cerebro and other luchadors visited children in the hospital.
This Sunday’s GALLI show has GPA versus Bryce Benjamin and Acid Jazz vs Marshe Rockett, which sounds like a really good match.
Atlantis & Pirata Morgan Jr. is listed as happening in Cicero, Illinois on 05/25.
CMLL (MON) 05/19/2014 Arena Puebla
1) Águila Egipcia & Metatrón vs Ares & Guerrero Espacial
2) Asturiano, Meyer, Tigre Rojo Jr. vs Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Violencia, Pequeño Warrior
3) Fuego, Rey Cometa, Sagrado vs Cancerbero, Kamaitachi, Raziel
4) Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr., Máximo vs Felino, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas
5) Máscara Dorada, Valiente, Volador Jr. vs Gran Guerrero, Niebla Roja, Último Guerrero
Looks like a Volador/Ultimo Guerrero feud, and a minis versus locals one on the undercard.
Last Friday’s CMLL’s main event did air – with editing. AAA’s main event did not air; there’s a few seconds of Bengala after the main event but not more than that. AAA’s opener will air on UTDN and is included in the YouTube version of the show, but did not air on Televisa.

The usual load of randomness on a DragonMania, plus the required Dragon/Guerrero tease.

Wagner’s first match here since October. Demon Clown’s debut. Tecnicos took 1/3, Pirata and Wagner exchanging falls.
No idea who Demon Clown is. I think they’re still setting up an Imposible title match at some point.

That’s about as big a tecnico versus “tecnico?” match as CMLL can run, with no build, for not much reason on a Sunday. Mascara Dorada is going to Japan in a week so I guess they might as well do it now is the theory? It should be good. Top four matches will all be good. Zayco/Magnus must continue!
