Sin Cara Backstage at Arena Mexico
On CMLL’s 07/19 Arena Mexico event former CMLL star and current WWE superstar Sin Cara, the original Mistico, was visiting his old promotion backstage. He had his family with him and was visiting old friends for the most part. This is the first time he has visited CMLL since leaving for WWE and this is definitely an interesting turn of events after Paco Alonso initially swore he nor CMLL would ever have anything to do with Mistico/Sin Cara again.

CMLL Officially Announces Anniversary Main Event
This past weekend CMLL held a big Press Conference to officially confirm the Main Event for the 09/13 “80th Anniversary Show” which will see La Sombra & Volador Jr. face off against Ultimo Guerrero & Atlantis in a Relevos Suicidas Match. The winning team of that match will then immediately face off in what will be a huge Mask vs. Mask Match. This match is a bit different than typical Relevos Suicidas Match as usually the LOSING team faces off in a Mask Match. The story here is that both Atlantis/Guerrero and Volador/Sombra hate each other so much that they want to fight in a Mask Match. The fan reaction to this has been fairly negative as CMLL announced way back at the beginning of the year that the Anniversary Show would be headlined by Guerrero & Atlantis in a Mask Match so changing it up this late in the game didn’t sit well with many. The fact of the matter is they could very well do the Guerrero/Atlantis match regardless but Sombra/Volador would be a potential classic match. As great as that match would be it’s hard to believe that CMLL is ready to take the mask of two of their biggest and brightest young stars in Sombra or Volador. CMLL also announced that Blue Panther & Averno would face off at some point in the future in a Hair vs. Hair Match, and both Panter & Averno want it to be a Submission Match. Also, Negro Casas & Shocker challenged Rush to a Hair Match which he accepted. CMLL decided that they will do Negro Casas vs. Rush in a Hair Match (no date announced yet) and then the winner of that match will face Shocker down the line.

Universal Champion Tournament
CMLL also announced that the annual Universal Champions Tournament will begin later this month with a conclusion on 09/06. The Universal Champions Tournament features every single champion in CMLL facing off to see who the greatest champion in the promotion is. CMLL has been doing this Tournament since 2009. Ultimo Guerrero won the first one in 2009, Jushin Thunder Liger won the 2010 version, La Sombra won it in 2011, and El Terrible was last year’s winner. New Japan’s Hiroshi Tanahashi has been confirmed already as coming in for the Tournament (he and Jushin Thunder Liger are now the CMLL Tag Team Champions) but oddly Jushin Liger has not been confirmed as of yet. The current list of all CMLL Champions that should be involved in the Tournament are below:
