CMLL (TUE) 06/15 Arena Mexico [@cmllmagazine]
1) Bengala & Metatrón b Artillero & Súper Comando
2) Bam Bam, Eléctrico, Fantasy DQ Demus 3:16, Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Violencia
3) Diamante, Sagrado, Valiente b Arkangel de la Muerte, Nosferatu, Virus
4) Brazo de Plata, Delta, Místico b Averno, Mephisto, Pólvora
5) Ephesto b Rey Bucanero [CMLL LH]
Bucanero took the first, Ephesto the second. Ephesto managed to kick out after taking the Buca Storm and rolled up Bucanero with the Ephesto Cradle for the win. Awwww.
Mistico and Averno were left alone at the end of the semimain, and you know how that goes. To complete the return to 2005, Mistico challenged Averno to a shot at Averno’s [name redacted] World Middleweight Championship championship. All time, Mistico is 14-4 versus Averno in singles matches. In Averno’s defense, his last two wins were beating Mistico for this same title (in 2007) and retaining this title over Mistico (in 2008). This would be Averno’s first defense of the year. Probably his last.
Tecnicos minis won in straight falls, Demus being DQed for fouling Bam Bam in the second. Feels like we’ve got another match between those two coming up.
Metatron replaced Metalico.

ESTO introduces Goya Kong, who says she just accompanied her sister to trainee with El Apache and ended up being a wrestler herself. Meanwhile, her sister was introduced on Ras de Lona months ago and still hasn’t debuted in CMLL.
CMLL Magazine says there’s a press conference today. Liger & Yoshihashi coming in figures to be a topic, as probably will Sombra’s BOSJ tour (his match versus Lyger is up now), the Father’s Day show, and maybe this Mistico/Averno title match. I’ll have a post on it later.
Record Luchas magazine has it’s latest edition up for free on their website in three parts: Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3. From reading the boards, it appears this is free because the magazine has been canceled and this issues wasn’t going to the printers. Record had a really good magazine (and it’s worth picking up if you stumble across old issues), focusing more on interviews and non-time specific articles since it came out monthly, but it’s a tough time for magazines.
Lucha Va Voom is in Chicago tonight for two shows at 7 and 10 Just like last time, I’ve ended up having other stuff to do on the same night and would be a couple hours late for the late show (so, no post about the AAA taping until late either), but if you’re not doing anything, it’s always worth checking out.
Jack Evans is learning Brazilian Luta Livre.
SuperLuchas has the new PWR Women’s Champion.
R de Rudo interviews El Italiana, who’s the daughter of a wrestler and says she’s the god daughter of Abismo Negro. She doesn’t have a driver’s license, which would seem to make it hard to work shows.

Tzuki! It’s about five months to the day since Tzuki was either fired or put on Mr. Niebla suspension after he appeared in no condition to perform (but tried anyway) in a Puebla match. Hope he’s better, more for his sake, but also because that looks like a pretty great match. Whatever they’re setting up with Bam Bam and Demus may be affect things.
Super Porky is listed under the Rotoporky name, for whatever reason.
