IWRG (SUN) 06/05/2011 Arena Naucalpan [Black Terry Jr. (flickr), Estrellas del Ring, Record (1-4), Record (5)]
1) Alan Extreme & Imposible b Tritón & Turbo
Turbo replaced Dragon Fly.
2) El Pollo Asesino, Fresero Jr., King Drako b Dinamic Black, Dr. Muerte, Hijo del Pantera
Card was switched around a bit from the early listing, but I’m betting Dr. Muerte on the tecnico side was still a replacement for someone.
3) Avisman b Freelance
Avisman took falls 1/3, though Freelance had Avisman beat in the third fall multiple times while the ref was down. Freelance challenged him to a hair match.
4) Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro b Multifacético, Pantera, Veneno
Oficial took falls 2/3. 911 tore Multifacteico’s mask, pinned after a Gori Sepcial, and challenged him to a title match.
5) Monster Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown b Bestia 666, Damián 666, X-Fly [IWRG IC TRIOS]
Clowns took falls 2/3 to keep these titles. X-Fly accidentally hit Damian 666, and Psycho Clown gave Damian spinebuster for the deciding pin.

AULL (SUN) 06/05/2011 Arena Lopez Mateos [Estrellas del Ring (4-6), Mi Lucha Libre (6)]
4) Yakuza b Herejia [AULL WELTER]
Yakuza won the title back from Herejia.
5) Judas el Traidor, Sangre Chicana, Trauma I, Trauma II b Chucho el Roto, Iron Love, Sadico, Zumbi
Iron Love & Chucho el Roto challenged for a AULL TAG match despite the loss; it’ll be a three way with Daga & Eterno.
6) Coco Amarillo, Coco Azul, Coco Rojo DQ Monster Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown
Coco Rojo fouled Monster Clown and faked a foul right after; ref gave it to him.

CMLL (SUN) 06/05/2011 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [El Occidental, Fuego en el Ring]
1) Nube Roja b Quca
2) Black Metal & Leo b Ángel del Mal & Drago
Black Metal replaced Hierro. Rudo team not actually specified.
3) Exterminador & Infierno b Leono & Metálico
What was listed on the poster as Metalik was actually Metalico. Upset win for the rudo.
4) Delta, Diamante, Metro b Cancerbero, Euforia, Pólvora
Delta and Polvora kept fighting after the finish, and Polvora had to be pulled away by his teammates.
5) Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto DQ La Máscara, La Sombra, Valiente
Crowd was loud behind Averno. Rudos jumped the tecnicos to win the first, Averno yanked La Mascara’s mask to lose the second, Averno fouled La Mascara in the third to lose the match.

CMLL in Japan

NJPW 06/05: Mascara Dorada [6] b Daisuke Sasaki [2] (8:02)
Daisuke Sasaki is Tokyo area indy worker who won a tournament to get into this tournament (a lot like our friend Taichi.) Dorada is in 5th, but only two points out of 2nd, and I think tomorrow’s results could produce some favorable results:

Gedo [2] vs Mascara Dorada [6]
TAKA Michinoku [6] vs Daisue Sasaki [2]
Ryusuke Taguchi [6] vs KUSHIDA [8]
The Great Sasuke [10] vs Kota Ibushi [8]
Bye: Jushin Liger [8]

There are no certainties, but TAKA should beat Sasaki and Dorada should beat Gedo, getting them both to 8. Based on how they were positioned coming into this tournament, Taguchi is the favorite over KUSHIDA, so both of them would have 8 as well. The Sasuke/Ibushi match of outsiders is unpredictable, but if Sasuke can pull off a win, that would put TAKA, Taguchi, Ibushi, Liger, KUSHIDA and Guadalajara’s Mascara Dorada in a six way tie for second, and all six guys just happen to be facing off in matches on the final league day.

Reina 06/04:
3) Hiroyo Matsumoto b Silueta (10:58)
5) Aki Kanbayashi (O) & Ray b Manami Toyota & Zeuxis (X) (23:15) – this sets up a Zeuxis/Ray match on 06/19.

Other Notes

CMLL referee Rafa el Maya was hospitalized Saturday night with heart issues. He’s still recovering at last word.

Black Terry Jr. has video from Coliseo Coalaco of Black Terry, Dr. Cerebro, Negro Navarro vs Judas el Traidor, Magnifico, Último Vampiro: fall 1, fall 2, fall 3

Box Y Lucha #3029 has Sombra declaring he wants to be World Famous. Is it sad that my first thought was that he might need to change promotions to do that?
