ESTO puts the turnout as just over 2000, a low low turnout (though more than they seem to do for a lot of Tuesday and Sunday shows.) Record has some pictures which show the ‘no one can sit next to another’ order was pretty much ignored. The article also mentions they had everyone come down to ringside so it’d look a little less awful on TV.
Earlier, I asked why La Mascara was in the main event. Turns out, it was to set up a title match. He got Negro clean with la campana and challenges were exchange for the welterweight championship, though we may be a couple weeks away from that.
I’m not exactly sure what the finish was in the semimain – I’ve seen Shocker yanking Dos’ mask for a pin and Dos getting himself DQed against Shocker. Either way, seems like the feud has switched from Dos/Hector to to Dos/Shocker.
Misterioso doesn’t get to go to Japan, but he gets to beat Metro in a bonus match! (Poor Misterioso.)
As mentioned last night, Arena Coliseo Guadalajara is staying off for two more weeks due to flu deaths in the area. Apolo Dantes says they’re canceling all shows up to and including the Tuesday May 19th show. First show back would be May 24th. Refunds are being handed out for the Friday show, which Dantes says was planned to be taped. All the wrestlers found out about the show being canceled as they were making their way there, and had to turn around and go home. SuperLuchas says Record’s show will be on June 20th, so that’s when last night’s CMLL show will be rescheduled.
Tommorrow’s show has had a some wrestlers bolted on to make up for no GDL show.
CMLL (SUN) 05/10 Arena Mexico
1) Molotov & Sensei vs Camorra & Inquisidor
2) Dark Angel, Marcela, Sahori vs Amapola, Hiroka, Mima Shimoda
3) Bam Bam, Mascarita Dorada, Shockercito vs Pequeño Damian 666, Pequeño Violencia, Pequeño Warrior
4) La Mascara, Mictlan, Sagrado vs Black Warrior, Misterioso II, Shigeo Okumura
5) Hijo del Fantasma, Metro, Valiente vs Averno, Heavy Metal, Texano Jr.
6) Blue Panther, Mistico, Shocker vs Dos Caras Jr., Ephesto, Mephisto
7) Hector Garza, La Sombra, Volador Jr. vs Atlantis, Rey Bucanero, Ultimo Guerrero
Match 4 and 6 are the new ones. I don’t think I’ve seen CMLL have seven matches before when it’s not been a tournament or something. This will clearly change what airs next weekend – no chance of the minis or women.
The Kid’s Day show has been rescheduled to “sometime this summer”
Given a couple weeks off to think about things, Averno has decided he now wants a triangle apuesta match with Mistico & Negro Casas at the Anniversary show. That’s what too much time off does to your mind. Averno would welcome Dos Jr. into Hijo del Avernos if he wants to join, but he’s not going to force anyone to join.
