CMLL really needs to put up the Puebla lineup. Not just because it’s tomorrow, but so someone knows for sure if there’s a title on the line in the main event. (Also, promoting a hair match would be a keen idea.)
Also, the Lucha Libre Expo is next weekend. Those shows which didn’t have updated lineups don’t appear to have them now. AAA’s actual taping lineup should be out in a day or so, and I guess IWRG’s card looks more accurate given the Dinamitas coming back in this week.
CMLL (TUE) 07/21 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Astaroth & Thunder Boy vs Katana & Milenio
2) Magnum & Metatron vs Angel del Mal & Drago
3) Gallo & Leon Blanco vs Mascara Magica & Mr. Trueno
4) Flash & Metro vs Euforia & Nosferatu
5) La Mascara & Toscano vs Terrible & Texano Jr.
New regime loves pairs matches! Unless I’m missing something, none of the guys in the cage match tonight will appear on this show.
CMLL (TUE) 07/21 Arena Mexico
1) Bengala & Molotov vs Caligula & Messala
2) Angel de Plata, Guerrero Maya Jr., Metalico vs Bronco, Dr. X, Vangelis
3) Amapola, Hiroka, Yezca vs Lady Apache, Lluvia, Marcela
4) Hector Garza, Mictlan, Sagrado vs Felino, Heavy Metal, Hijo del Lizmark
5) Averno vs Hijo del Fantasma [CMLL MIDDLE]
The power of being connected: took the rudos (and pretty much everyone else) 2-3 of matches to get their title shot. Fantasma gets it done in 1! Nice to CMLL remembering NOT took book Dark Angel on days she’s supposed to be in TNA. It’s the small things, really.
IWRG (THU) 07/23 Arena Naucalpan
1) Imperial vs Comando Negro
2) Goleador & Guizmo vs Blasfemia & Keshin Black
3) Exodia, Jack, Pendulo vs Black Terry, Capitan Muerte, Fantasma de la Opera
4) Chico Che, Rigo, Trauma I vs Avisman, Bushi, Dr. Cerebro
5) Negro Navarro, Ricky Cruzz, Trauma II vs El Alebrije, Fuerza Guerrera, Veneno
Since they’re working Super X as rudos in this feud, where Ricky Curz is pretty firmly a tecnico, it’s probably about time for Alebrije to turn rudo (!) or join the IWRG side.
CMLL (FRI) 07/24 Arena Mexico
1) Astro Boy & Sensei vs Artillero & Super Comando
2) Angel Azteca Jr., Angel de Oro, Tigre Blanco vs Euforia, Loco Max, Skandalo
3) Mascara Dorada vs Dragon Rojo Jr. [lightning]
4) Blue Panther, Hector Garza, Toscano vs Naito, Ray Mendoza Jr., Yujiro
5) La Mascara, Mistico, Volador Jr. vs Atlantis, Negro Casas, Ultimo Guerrero
6) Shocker vs Texano Jr. [NWA LH]
As I mention every time Shocker gets a shot at this title, this was the belt Shocker lost not in the ring, but by jumping in to AAA.
La Mascara in the semimain!(!!!!!!) Does Sombra have a family reunion? Did someone figure out the perfect compliment for a boring cage match is La Mascara getting a Welterweight title shot next week? (I am actually fine with La Mascara.)
Ray Mendoza making a return engagement sure seems to set up an addition to the cage match.
CMLL (SUN) 07/26 Arena Coliseo
1) Rayo Tapatio I & Rayo Tapatio II vs Camorra & Semental
2) Metalico, Tigre Blanco, Tony Rivera vs Dr. X, Inquisidor, Polvora
3) Dark Angel, Estrella Magica, Lluvia vs Amapola, Crazy Star, Princesa Sujei
4) Maximo, Sagrado, Valiente vs Black Warrior, Dragon Rojo Jr., Sangre Azteca
5) La Sombra, Mistico, Toscano vs Hijo del Lizmark, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas
Hijo del Lizmark in the main event! Poder Mexica actually teams up, hooray.
CMLL (SUN) 07/26 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Hierro & Thunder Boy vs Milenio & Relampago
2) Guerrero Samurai II & Virgo vs Rafaga & Rey Trueno
3) Mascara Dorada, Neutron, Palacio Negro vs Infierno, Mascara Magica, Virus
4) Naito, Shigeo Okumura, Yujiro vs Blue Panther, Hijo del Fantasma, Shocker
Short a match here. Maybe a match out of this week’s Texano/UG vs Panther/Mendoza match. Second match has half the guys in tonight’s cage match.
IWRG (SUN) 07/26 Arena Naucalpan
1) Halcon 2000 vs Comando del Diablo
2) Eragon & Imperial vs Blasfemia & Keshin Black
3) Chico Che, Exodia, Rigo vs Capitan Muerte, Cerebro Negro, Dr. Cerebro
4) Ricky Cruz, Scorpio Jr., Trauma II vs Mascara Ano 2000 Jr., Tetsuya, Veneno
No main event announced, just like happened for this week. Ovaciones says tonight’s main event is the oddball team of Oficial 911, Angelico and Ricky Cruz vs Super X’s Mascara Ano 2000 Jr., Hijo del Cien Caras, and Veneno, so perhaps a tag team title match next week? There’s also a Trauma II vs Avsiman #1 contenders match for the IWRG IC Lightweight title tonight.
