Hi everyone… well, I apologize for missing the recap of last night’s Arena Mexico show, but I was working my way through a miserable cold/flu. After all, it is June…
Completely unrelated, but Wayne had “The BIg Bang Theory” on in the other room. I was going to stay until I heard something on the show that was remotely funny, but I don’t have that much time to waste in life. Five minutes of my life I will never get back. That show is just horrible…
Sounds like I missed a really good show at Arena Mexico last night, which saw….
1. Metalico & Starman def. Hijo del Singo & Disturbio
2. Shigeo Okamura, Namajague & Virus def. Diamante, Hijo del Fantasma & Triton
3. Shinsuke Nakamura, Ultimo Guerrero & Euforia def. Rush, Atlantis & Diamante Azul when in the third. Shinsuke pinned Rush with his feet in the ropes after a powerbomb. Challenges followed.
4. Mascara Dorada def. Negro Casas using Casas’ casita for the pin in the third to win the NWA Welterweight Title.
5. Pequeno Violencia lost his hair when Shockercito submitted him to win the 10 minis cage match (escaping earlier were Fantasy, Aereo, Electrico, Bam Bam, Demus 3:16, Pequeno Nitro, Pequeno Warrior, and Mercurio).
Hopefully video will be available sooner than later…
Here is a rundown of this coming Sunday’s Arena Coliseo show:
1. Soberano Jr. & Magnus vs. Artillero & Super Commando
2. Hombra Bala Jr. & Super Halcon Jr. vs. Arkangel de la Muerte & Skandalo
3 – 8: Quarterfinals and semifinals of the CMLL Trios Title tournament (last champions were Marco Corleone, Rush, and Maximo and were vacated when it was announced Marco wouldn’t be back until September from injuries suffered in a car accident.)
9. Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Rush
Hhhhmmmm.. will the Mexico vs. Japan storyline actually see people cheer Rush? Not holding my breathe.
The teams in the CMLL Trios Title Tournament are:
– Mistico, Mascara Dorada & Valiente
– TRT (Rey Bucanero, Terrible & Tiger)
– Reyes del Atlantida (Atlantis, Delta & Guerrero Maya Jr.)
– Revolucionarios (Dragon Rojo Jr., Rey Escorpion & Polvora)
– La Mascara, La Sombra (who won the NJPW IC Title from Shinsuke Nakamura on 5/31) & Rey Cometa)
– Mr. Aguila, Psicosis & Volador Jr.
– Blue Panther, Diamante Azul & Stuka Jr.
– Ultimo Guerrero, Niebla Rojo & Euforia
Should be a good show…
