Ultimo Guerrero/Psicosis, Miss Gaviota unmasked, Heroes del Ring pushed back?

CMLL (SUN) 07/04 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [InformadorFuego en el Ring]
1) NocturnoQuca
2) Javier Cruz Jr. & MagnumEbola & Templario
3) Dark Angel & SiluetaLa Comandante & Seuxis
4) Atlantis, Averno, Rey BucaneroLa Máscara, La Sombra, Máscara Dorada
5) Último GuerreroPsicosis

UG won the first fall, Psi took the second with a powerbomb and his feet on the ropes, Guerrero got his own pin with feet on the ropes in the third.

In repeats of previous weeks, Averno beat Dorada and requested a shot for the Super Lightweight championship, while Silueta and Seuxis continue to feud in the women’s matches.

IWRG (SUN) 07/04 Arena Naucalpan [Estrellas del Ring]
1) Comando NegroMixteco Jr.
2) Eterno & Hijo del SignoEragon & Hijo del Pantera
3) Canek Jr., Gringo Loco, Kung Fu Jr.Chico Che, Eterno, Suicida
4) Bobby Lee Jr., Hijo de Pierroth (IWRG), Máscara Año 2000 Jr.Jack, Scorpio Jr., Veneno [lumberjack strap match]
5) Miss GaviotaPasion KristalMantraDiva SalvajeNygmaSexy Gladys [cage, hair, mask]

Subs all over the place: Mantra for May Flowers (not working out the rest of his matches), Jack sort of getting Hijo del Cien Caras’ spot, Eterno in for Centauro, and Canek Jr. as an announced apparent for the tercera.

Pasion Kristal beat Miss Gaviota to win the cage match. IWRG loses to everyone. Miss Gaviota gave his name as Wendy Martinez Cabrera. Link has the unmasked photo.

Mascara Ano 2000 Jr. snuck in a foul on Scorpio Jr. Gringo Loco celebrated US Independence Day with his own cheating to win.

CMLL has Diamante working the second match on Friday, instead of two Molotovs.

Gamestop now lists Heroes del Ring as coming out October 12, which would be a two month delay.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.

Invasors/Angels, lineups

CMLL (SUN) 07/04 Arena Coliseo [@cmllmagazine]
1) Bengala & HorusCamorra & Cholo
2) Hooligan, Nitro, SkándaloFabián el Gitano, Pegasso, Rey Cometa
3) Ángel Azteca Jr., Ángel de Oro, Ángel de Plata DQ Histeria, Monsther, Oriental
4) Ephesto, Texano, VangelisHijo del Fantasma, Metro, Toscano
5) Brazo de Plata, Místico, ShockerJushin Liger, Mephisto, Mr. Niebla

Fabian replaced Tony Rivera, who’s been showing up on a lot of outside bookings lately. Nitro beat Fabian for the win, and probably should teach Dr. X how to accomplish that.

Not really high on the Invasors losing to the Angeles if we’re still supposed to be taking them seriously as a top threat, but it happened in a smart way. The rudos tossed Angel de Oro over the top rope in the third fall, which isn’t called a DQ any place outside of CMLL. Invasors should be claiming ignorance. It does seem like this isn’t the end of this feud.

Not a lot about the top 2. Texano got Fantasma for the deciding pinfall in the semimain. I suspect there was a Mistico/Liger challenge in the main event.

LuchaLibreAAA.com is down because they forgot to renew the domain. Someone probably stopped using whatever email address they used to sign up for it, never got a reminder notice, and didn’t know it was expiring out until it stopped working today. (I am familiar with this sequence of events happening to others.) They should be back as soon as they get the right person to answer an email – and they still have http://triplea.com.mx/ if they want to use a different domain. In theory, the domain is open to anyone to buy one it expires, but domain companies usually hold onto it for 30 days in case something like this happens. More than you wanted to know!

Prior to his singles match with Ultimo Guerrero, Psicosis was excited to prove he was as good as Ultimo Guerrero, though he’d prefer to have a fair referee like Tirantes officiate the match.

Cronicas Y Leyendas has a photo of a bloody Ray Mendoza in California.

DJ Spectro has a look back at Lou Thesz vs Canek, a match which actually occurred, Aguila del America in 1985, and posts video of some Pavillion Azteca matches.

SuperLuchas has an interview with Oaxaca’s Vuelo Especial. #371 of the magazine has an exclusive interview with Rey Misterio.

Also, in his own interview, Dr. X suggests a cage match with Sensei, Angel de Oro, Angel de Plata, Angel Azteca, Diamante, Fabian el Gitano Puma King, Tiger Kid, and los Cancerberos. That was probably about what the match – should happen sometime in August, maybe as one of the Fan Appreciation shows – was scheduled to be at the time, though Dr. X probably should’ve mentioned his Tuareg amigos (?) as possibilities. The theme is young tecnicos vs old rudo, the names are always subject to adjustment. Now, between the finish in the terecera today, and the lineup below, there may be a third group (or at least an expansion in contest of the second group.)

Lineups

IWRG (THU) 07/08 Arena Naucalpan
1) Héros vs Dark Devil
2) Eragon & Super Halcon Jr. vs Fishman Jr. & Hijo del Signo
3) Avisman, El Hijo del Diablo, Gringo Loco vs Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro
4) Jack Evans, Laredo Kid, Súper Fly vs Dr. Cerebro, Freelance, Suicida
5) Máscara Año 2000 & Veneno vs Hijo de Pirata Morgan & Pirata Morgan

Even though we might see the match, I’m entertained by the semimain match occurring at all. Main event builds off the finish this past week; Piratas have now down as many tag feuds after having the tag titles as they did while having the titles.

AAA (SAT) 07/10 Arena Neza
1) Mini Charly Manson & Octagoncito vs Mini Histeria & Mini Psicosis
2) Aerostar & Fabi Apache vs Billy Boy & Sexy Star
3) Monster Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown vs Cuervo, Escoria, Ozz
4) La Parka Jr., Octagón, Pimpinela Escarlata vs Electroshock, Silver King, Último Gladiador

AAA’s running Arena Neza. Someone should.

IWRG (SUN) 07/11 Arena Naucalpan
1) Eragon, Hijo del Pantera, Super Halcon Jr. vs Crazy Star (M), Imposible, Magia Negra
2) Bobby Lee Jr., Chico Che, Miss Gaviota vs Canek Jr., Kung Fu Jr., Trauma I
3) Centauro, Pantera, Veneno vs Fuerza Guerrera, Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Oficial Fierro
4) Extreme Tiger, Gato Eveready, La Parka Jr. vs Máscara Año 2000 Jr., Oficial 911, Pirata Morgan

Crazy Star (M) because I assume it’s not the former CMLL women. They’ve both been active in the DF indies at the same time, I wonder if one ever gets calls for the others.  Kind of odd to have the Oficials in separate matches and Pirata teaming with Mascara Jr. while he’s feuding with Mascara Sr. I’m guessing the IWRG crowd will not be big fans of Parka, but I’m not sure.

CMLL (SUN) 07/11 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) El Divino & Meteoro vs Cerveruz & Quca
2) Javier Cruz Jr. & Metatrón vs Infierno & Templario
3) Lady Apache & Silueta vs Amapola & Seuxis
4) Hijo del Fantasma, Toscano, Valiente vs Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto

Card subject to change. Silueta/Seuxis continue to feud.

CMLL (SUN) 07/11 Arena Coliseo
1) Camaleón & Principe vs Disturbio & Mortiz
2) Dalys la Caribeña, Lluvia, Luna Mágica vs La Comandante, Princesa Sujei, Yeska
3) Ángel de Oro, Ángel de Plata, Fabián el Gitano vs Maniaco, Monsther, Oriental
4) Blue Panther, La Sombra, Volador Jr. vs Atlantis, Felino, Negro Casas
5) Brazo de Plata, Místico, Shocker vs Héctor Garza, Texano Jr., Último Guerrero

Angels & Fabian continue to feud with the Invasors, which seems to put those rudos – and not the Canceberos or other Tuareg – in line for the cage match.

Of course, Oriental can only put his mask on the line in a cage match in August if he doesn’t lose it next Monday. They can always sub someone else in this feud for Oriental and everyone’s not always on the same page about who’s going to be available when. However, and not solely because of one result and one lineup, I’m less certain events are occurring as I thought they would. I still think Mistico is beating Oriental for his mask, and I still think it’ll happen in Nuevo Laredo. It just may not happen in July.

07/02 AAA TV Results (Carmen, Campeche)

AAA TV (FRI) 07/02 Domo del Mar, Ciudad del Carmen, Campeche [@dorianroldan, AAA]
1) Billy Boy, Jennifer Blade, Tigre Cota b Laredo Kid, Mari Apache, Súper Fly
2) Alex Koslov & Christina Von Eerie b Aerostar & Fabi Apache [AAA MIXED TAG]
3) Damián 666 & Halloween b Jack Evans & Rocky Romero
4) Joe Lider & Nicho el Millionario DQ Hernandez & Zorro
5) Dr. Wagner Jr. & La Parka Jr. b Chessman & LA Park

2010 Air Date chart
Projected Air Date (#946)
Mexico: 07/18
US: 07/31

The top two matches worked off each other. Zorro was DQed for excessive use of the cane (there’s excessive use? and you can get disqualified for it? Piero was ref) and Hermandad were left laying, so Lider returned to attack Chessman in the main event. Parka picked up the win, and Lider & Nicho ran off the Legion/Perros after the match.

Jack & Rocky had issues in their loss. Next challenger?

Mari Apache was at ringside, as a maid for the rudo team, for the title match. She wouldn’t cheat for the rudos, so Blake attacked her, Fabi was distracted, and Von Eerie pinned her with a bridge to win the titles.

Tecnicos lost the opener when Blake ordered Mari to foul Laredo, and Billy Boy finished Super Fly with the Cop Killa. That’s Homicide’s name for the move, AAA can’t seem to find the time to give their own.

Sombra & Mistico, new AAA champs, Perros

CMLL (FRI) 07/02 Arena Mexico [@cmllmagazine, SuperLuchas]
1) Metálico & Tigre Blanco b Disturbio & Semental
2) Fabián el Gitano, Molotov, Sensei b Arkangel de la Muerte, Puma King, Tiger Kid
3) Fuego b Cancerbero [lighting]
4) Amapola, Princesa Blanca, Princesa Sujei b Lady Apache, Luna Mágica, Marcela
5) La Máscara, Máximo, Toscano b Jushin Lyger, Shigeo Okumura, Yoshihashi
6) La Sombra, Místico, Shocker DQ Felino, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas

Shocker & Mistico where wearing matching outfits. At least they were, until Mr. Niebla pulled Sombra’s mask for the DQ. Two straight weeks with those two in the finish, which should indicate next week’s main event. (It doesn’t, different direction.) The Mistico/Sombra best buddies bit is the programming equivalent of Chessman’s moonsault. There’s no teasing it, there’s no letting the fans anticipate the union, they just jumped ahead to being friends in such a way to make it mean less.

Semimain tecnico win is a slight upset.

Second match was a sweep for the tecnicos. Rudos ripped up masks in the first, but got pinned there and the second. This week, they were setting up a Fabian/Sensei vs Puma/Tiger mask match, just days after trying to get a Angel de Oro/Puma King feud over in press release. This feud is the opposite, all tease and no action. It’s like a booking version of Golidlocks and the Three Bears, except we don’t get that bed that’s just right too often.

Masked Warriors: the Lucha Libre USA group on MTV2 will be taping in the 18,000 seat Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas on 08/07. Tickets are in the usual range, $20 at the cheapest, $58 for the closest. Since both tapings had everyone move closer to the ring, and neither of those tapings cracked 300 people (1/60th of capacity of this building), I’m thinking you should buy the cheap tickets.

The TV is going to have to be a huge, dramatic success for this show to work. AAA did not do well in similar size buildings, and they were coming in with more recognizable names. The other two tapings proved that just putting lucha libre on the billboard wasn’t enough to draw. This is all reliant on the TV show being something people really want to see live. The promotion and/or the network doesn’t seem that excited about the TV taped so far, or they wouldn’t have shown so little of it and so much of the AAA footage. I’d like to see everyone do well, but this is ridiculousness.

By my count, Masked Warriors doesn’t actually have enough tapings to make it to this 08/07 taping. At 3 episodes a taping, they’re out of footage by 07/27. There’s been no mention of a July taping and it sounds like there won’t be one.

Friday night AAA TV: It looks like neither Dos de Tres or AAA’s website made the trip to Carmen for the taping. When Dorian Roldan wasn’t busy arguing with Rob – I am not making that up – he did mention Alex & Christina won the mixed tag titles. There was talk in a recent Wrestling Observer about AAA being unhappy with Rain and Von Eerie likely getting her spot, and that seems to be the deal there. I’ve thought Blade was the lesser of the two Gringas Locas, but Rain has seemed to slip of late. Also, Halloween & Damian beat Jack & Rocky, as expected. I’ll do a separate post with full results if/when they come in.

I’d like to pretend that Dorian handed his phone off to someone, and actually did have better things to do during an AAA TV taping than to go back and forth with Rob on Aerostar. There’s surely dead time to do to tweet during an AAA show (that’s when I return emails), but you’d hope the guy who supposed to be running the place has his focus elsewhere. Maybe I’ve made a false assumption in this paragraph. I will say, it was a nice change of pace from Dorian’s normally quite boring twitter posts of complaining about travel and chatting back and forth with girls.

Ras de Lona did not have much news. Dragon Rojo’s injury is to his lower back. They played Mistico’s challenge to Lyger for a title match in Guadalajara, so that may actually be happening.

Perros del Mal hyped Heddi Karou (unknown guy from France, presumably a different group than the one Sangre Azteca works with), Naruto (Brazilian, I think, based on the phone number they left on the picture for who knows what reason; tough to research a guy with that name), Ragde and Pesdailla for the Lucha Libre Expo show. That sounds like a tag amtch.

Laredo Kid taught his first class at his wrestling school, with guest instructor Aerostar. Both pitch as something for the kids to do while they’re on summer vacation. Laredo mentions his brothers, also luchadors, will lead the classes when he’s not around. The plural is interesting, since we Oscuridad is the only brother we know of.

Newspaper recap of an AAA show in Durango says the attendance was bad, as was the main event.

LLF canceled their show last night due to Hurricane Alex.

Lineup

CMLL hasn’t posted their lineups, but Ras de Lona had Friday’s as

CMLL (FRI) 07/09 Areno Mexico
1) Bengala & Horus vs Artillero & Súper Comando
2) Molotov, Molotov, Sensei vs Durango Kid, Puma King, Tiger Kid
3) Mascarita Dorada vs Pierrothito [lighting]
4) Máximo, Sagrado, Valiente vs Shigeo Okumura, Vangelis, Yoshihashi
5) Felino, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas vs Averno, Jushin Lyger, Mephisto
6) La Máscara, La Sombra, Volador Jr. vs Héctor Garza, Mr. Águila, Olímpico

Negro vs Lyger, finally. Garza, not with the invaders, teams with the invaders. And Volador is a tecnico unless he’s facing Mistico, unless there’s a turn here.

CMLL (SAT) 08/28 Domo Polideportivo, Zona 13, Guatemala
1) Pegasso & Slayer vs Asesno & Loco Max
2) Ángel de Oro & Ángel de Plata vs Puma King & Tiger Kid
3) Rayo Chapin, Toscano, Voltron vs Cancerbero, Raziel, Virus
4) Hijo del Fantasma & Valiente vs Dragón Rojo Jr. & Sangre Azteca
5) Máscara Dorada, Místico, Shocker vs Héctor Garza, Terrible, Texano

Retry for this show, which was canceled the first time. Lineup is a little shuffled but basically the same guys.

CMLL (FRI) 07/02 Arena Mexico [@cmllmagazine]
1) Metálico & Tigre Blanco b Disturbio & Semental
2) Fabián el Gitano, Molotov, Sensei b Arkangel de la Muerte, Puma King, Tiger Kid
3) Fuego b Cancerbero [lighting]
4) Amapola, Princesa Blanca, Princesa Sujei b Lady Apache, Luna Mágica, Marcela
5) La Máscara, Máximo, Toscano b Jushin Lyger, Shigeo Okumura, Yoshihashi

IWRG (THU) 07/01 Arena Naucalpan [Black Terry Jr. (flickr), Estrellas del Ring]
1) Epidemia b Guizmo
2) Héros & Tonatiuh DCO Dark Devil & Imposible
3) Comando Negro, Eterno, Hijo del Signo b Brazo Metalico, Daga, Eragon
4) Avisman, El Hijo del Diablo, Gringo Loco DCO Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro
5) Monster Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown DQ Máscara Año 2000, Trauma I, Veneno

If you recall, Pirata Morgan and Hijo were originally in the main event, but then replaced by Trauma I and Veneno. In this match, the IWRG team won the first fall, but Veneno was hurt in the process. Pirata Morgan appeared replaced him in the match, but the rest of the trio was confused by this and Psycho pinned Trauma I to tie it up. Trauma I was now injured, so Veneno decided ot come take his place, and fouled Psycho for the DQ.

Both the 2nd and the 4th ended in draws, though the 4th seemed more a product of a brawl and the 2nd reads more like dives gone bad.

Previews of today’s CMLL show: Ovaciones, ESTO, SuperLuchas. Back when this lineup was announced, CMLL wouldn’t have known if Mexico would still be alive this weekend. Turns out they’re not and the TV show won’t be running against football (even if it’s moved up a half hour again), but I’d suspect they’re not going to do anything huge this week either. They could set up a singles match off the Pesta Negra vs Shocker/Sombra/Mistico rematch, but no answers to the big question.

With less hype, because it’s going on in southern Mexico, AAA resumes taping this weekend. Tonight’s taping has Chessman & LA Park vs Wagner & La Parka, as well as the first return matches for Halloween & Damian, and Sunday has the LA Park vs La Parka rematch. Parka should be evening the score up this weekend, but that may not be the case if AAA’s still trying to convince Park to lose his mask.

Perros del Mal announced Hijo del Santo will be working their show at the Lucha Libre Expo. Santo as Hijo del Rey Misterio’s surprise partner to take on Los Perros makes sense, if that’s what they’re doing. Perros del Mal’s newest podcast is also up, with interviews with Super Crazy and Mexican National Heavyweight Champion X-Fly. Super Crazy is headed back to Japan for the AJPW’s Junior Heavyweight league, 07/25 to 08/08, which means he won’t be around for the Perros del Mal expo show.

Also for the expo: Fabian el Gitano is very excited before his stripping show, promising surprise wrestler inclusions.

Teleformula appears to be posting episodes of Lucha Mania on it’s own website. Their website makes direct links tricky, but you can get to the video by clicking on the video link on this page. There’s a podcast link, but it just froze up the computer I tried. This past week’s video is longer than the episode actually aired, so it probably has the missing Mascara/Averno fall. I just skimmed thru, and it appears CMLL (and probably IWRG before them) are not just ending their shows five seconds after the last pinfall, that’s just the way Teleformula has decided to air them.

Dos de Tres posts a story from it’s most recent edition, teasing Mesias’ retirement. He’s probably not retiring, but that shoulder is keeping him out longer than expected.

Fanboy Gaming has an interview with Immersion’s Project Designer for Heroes del Ring, Mateo Rojas. There’s one answer we’ve been looking for:

Mateo: We have plans to add some other luchadores through DLC though we haven’t cemented any confirmed DLC at this time. Remember if your favorite Lucha Libre character isn’t there, there´s also the possibility of the editor, as well.

DLC Atomic Boy! (or not.)

Dark Angel/Sarita turned rudo last night on TNA’s TV show, under their rule that all tag teams must turn on each other. CMLL’s mentioned when Sarah and Taylor Wilde won the Knockout Tag titles there, not sure if this gets mentioned.

4) Monster Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown b Aerostar, Laredo Kid, Súper Fly
5) El Elegido, Jack Evans, Octagón b Antifaz del Norte, Damián 666, Halloween

RFC has that semimain as win #15,656,541,551,516,514 for the Psycho Circus.

No word on the exact finish to that main event, but another show with Perros del Mal wrestlers did not end with a DQ: it ended with a double DQ.

Later this month, LuchaManiaUSA (FMLL) is running shows with name indy guys: it’s the Santo, Demon, Hijo de Rey, Rayo crew. They’re in Los Angeles on 07/17 and Chicago on 07/18. LA Park & Pirata Morgan are working LA, while Chicago gets Hijo de LA Park. Tickets don’t appear to be on sale in LA, but the Congress’ website says they’re $15 GA+$3 handling for Chicago. Thinking about going, but there are some tedious people on that lineup. The website says these are part of a 2010 tour also including Las Vegas, San Fransico, Milwaukee, and “Texas, TX”.

Gamer Vision has an interview with the leader designer of the PSP/Wii version of Heroes en el Ring. The pictures include Psycho Circus themed arena that looks awesome. I want AAA to build it and hold all their TV there, ASAP. Also, news you can use: (emphasis mine)

Lucha libre hosts some of the most diverse and insane division that wrestling has to offer, including a very deep female division and a “Mini” division for fighters shorter than 5 feet. We chose to focus on the main feud between Tecnicos and Rudos, since they are the most popular, and adding some female fighters to the roster, leaving the midgets for future incarnations of the game.

07/03-04 Lucha Times

box. One return from World Cup hiatus! Possibly not the one you want.

AAA-US: Part 1 of TripleMania, with the minis match, the women’s match, the four way tag and Wagner/Electroshock. I look forward to “flipping channels and saw Go Shiozaki on lucha libre, how weird” tweets this weekend.

52MX: Women’s match, and Yoshihashi’s debut on this show.

LATV: probably a rerun

CMLL-GDL: next show in line had a Mascara/Terrible/UG vs Asesino/Maximo/Porky relevos, but who knows.

—-

CMLL: the 3 of the top 4 that aren’t the women’s match. Pesta Negra vs Sombra/Mistico/Shocker

AAA-MEX: the first post-TripleMania taping, with the Legion vs 187/Cibernetico

Fox: notInfernales/Dr. X vs Dimante/Fuego/Rush, and Lyger & the Dinamitas vs Maximo, Porky and La Mascara in a match that actually happened.

C3: More Demus/Bam Bam

Puebla: still not on the schedule

Monterrey: Is it on? Is not on? I dunno. I’m guessing still off for World Cup.

Perros: back on the schedule! probably back still on the DF show.

CMLL-TFN: up to 07/03, so the Euforia/Okumura/Virus vs Maximo/Metro/Mictlan match might be an unaired one to slip thru.

Demus/Bam Bam signed for next week, new Puebla feud

CMLL (MON) 06/28 Arena Puebla [La Primera de Puebla (photos)Fuego en el Ring, CMLL]
1) Asturiano, Silver, Tigre Rojo ?? Espiritu Maligno, Mr. Rafaga, Siki Osama
2) Guerrero Maya Jr., Leono, Trueno DQ Bronco, Durango Kid, Inquisidor
3) Ángel de Oro, Rush, Stuka Jr.Cancerbero, Raziel, Virus
4) Atlantis, Rey Bucanero, Último GuerreroLa Sombra, Shocker, Volador Jr.
5) Rayo de Jalisco Jr.Universo 2000 [WWA HEAVY]

Talked about the main event earlier.

Loco Max fouled Centella de Oro for the DQ, and the two rematch next week. Don’t know why I’m mentioning this, but Arena Puebla’s anniversary show is coming up really soon, and Centella de Oro has been in a hair match on those shows the last two years.

No result for the opener. We’re all professionals here.

CMLL (TUE) 07/06 Arena Mexico
1) Metálico & Trueno vs Cholo & Semental
2) Ángel Azteca, Fuego, Guerrero Maya Jr. vs Euforia, Pólvora, Virus
3) Bam Bam vs Demus 3:16 [hair]
4) Blue Panther, Shocker, Toscano vs El Alebrije, Histeria, Psicosis
5) Hijo del Fantasma, Máscara Dorada, Místico vs Atlantis, Rey Bucanero, Último Guerrero

Fan appreciation show, so the hair/hair match takes place this week. Could go either way and probably isn’t the end for those two.

CMLL (TUE) 07/06 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Thunder Boy vs Relampago Azul
2) Astaroth & Virgo vs Acertijo & Infierno
3) Metal Blanco & Palacio Negro vs Ángel del Mal & Malefico
4) Ángel de Oro, Ángel de Plata, Stuka Jr. vs Cancerbero, Shigeo Okumura, Yoshihashi
5) Máximo & Sagrado vs Héctor Garza & Texano

Messala in the semimain is still weird.

CMLL Guadalajara Teleforumla #1 (06/26/2010)

Arena Coliseo Guadalajara, 05/04/2010

I wanted to set an over/under for how many more episodes would air, but I kept wanting to take the under. If this is one episode and done, I would not be surprised. It’s more a reflection of Teleformula’s programming quality and consistency than the CMLL show, but the CMLL show was also produced as if it was a pilot episode to shop around to a few networks. Who knows if they actually taped more. (CMLL haven’t even mentioned the existence of this show yet.)

Super Porky & Asesino Negro

Gallo, Metal Blanco, Palacio Negro vs Exterminador, Malefico, Mr. Trueno: Even if we get nothing else, we got Palacio Negro being insane. I’d be surprised if they planned it this way, but this was actually a strong show as an introduction. This was a nice showcase for the local tecnicos they wanted to get over, and the main event was a storyline in progress (interest level in storyline may vary.)

Gallo really should be used as the local hero who stays here forever. He’d have a much more memorable/enjoyable career than he probably would in Mexico City.

La Máscara vs Averno: kinda worthless, probably still would be in if they aired the third floor. Exactly the match you’d expect these guys to have, but at a very basic/mailed in level.

Brazo de Plata, Máximo, Toscano vs Asesino Negro, Terrible, Texano: They tried!

Puebla, Guadalajara, Relampago explains why he confused Tiger (again!)

CMLL (MON) 06/28 Arena Puebla [La Primera de Puebla (photos), Fuego en el Ring]
5) Rayo de Jalisco Jr. b Universo 2000 [WWA HEAVY]

Rayo retaining is the only result that’s turned up.

CMLL (TUE) 06/29 Arena Mexico [@cmllmagazine]
1) Rayo Tapatío I & Rayo Tapatío II b Mortiz & Zayco
2) Astro Boy, Guerrero Maya Jr., Starman b Apocalipsis, Artillero, Súper Comando
3) Demus 3:16, Pequeño Warrior, Pierrothito b Bam Bam, Mascarita Dorada, Último Dragoncito
4) Ray Mendoza Jr., Rey Bucanero, Último Guerrero b Blue Panther, Sagrado, Valiente
5) Brazo de Plata, Hijo del Fantasma, Máscara Dorada b Héctor Garza, Negro Casas, Texano

Replacements: Garza for Terrible, Mendoza for Atlantis, and Ultimo Dragoncito for Tzuki

Not much to say about the main. Mendoza did not get along with the Guerreros in the semimain. Even after Ultimo saved Mendoza from being finished by Panther to pick up the win, V5 and the guy who took his mask had issues after the match.

Tercera was more Demus/Bam Bam feuding. Demus got away with the foul this week for the pin, and the two agreed on a hair match. They’ve split the two they had, Demus winning the last one. Pierrothito needed medical help after the usual bit of Dragoncito killing him with a tope con giro.

Fuego en el Ring

3) Malefico & Rey Trueno b Neutrón & Palacio Negro

Mistico pinned Lyger, wants a title shot.

CMLL’s Twitter says Dragon Rojo is out hurt, though they don’t actually say with what or how long.

Another day, another explanation for why Relampago interfered at TripleMania: he has a secret past with Extreme Tiger and Tiger caused him a person problem way back when. Relampago says this grudge is serious, but he decided to wait a while before following up on it. He also refuses to explain what the issue is, telling people to ask Extreme Tiger. You could weave the two explanations, except yesterday’s one had Tiger said he just picked a person to annoy and this one says he did not just pick a random person to annoy. I like the first explanation better; that one didn’t give us another mystery with a likely unsatisfying resolution.

In more Relampago news, Impacto has an interview with him about the start of his career (PDF.) Relampago pitches lucha libre as a way to break free of alcohol and drugs. More usefully, he talks about being trained by Rafaga de Oro, el Mexico and el Apache. (So there’s one, Rob!) Relampago explains he did not have gear or a mask for his first match, so he asked to borrow a mask from someone and it just happened to have a lightning bolt.

La Parka calls Los Perros “Cubs” (which is apparently an insult???) and hopes they stay out of his match on Friday. Hope he has a plan B.

La Comandante says she, Terrible, and Texano are the best trio in all of Mexico. If they team up with Garza, it’s because Comandante convinced him.

Perros del Mal says Shelly Martinez & Annie Social are working with the group, doesn’t actually specify a show. Since the only show they have left is the lucha libre expo show, I’m going to guess they’re working lucha libre expo show.

Esther Moreno is listed on an August AAA house show, which makes it less likely she’s working the CMLL Nuevo Laredo show. Also, the mysterious Chiva Rayada returns again.

The Gladiatores interviews Super Halcon Jr., who must’ve be the “Hijo del Halcon” on the IWRG show Sunday.

LuchaWorld posts Dark Angel & Sahori vs Amapola  & Princesa Sujei from 2007, and the latest Pro Wrestling Revolution show (with E3 footage.)
