01/06: Mexico, GdR

CMLL (FRI) 01/05 Arena Mexico Results [Super Luchas, Galeno de Mal, ovaciones]
1) Mini Olimpico, Tzuki, Ultimo Dragoncito DQ Mini Damian 666, Mini Halloween, Mini Mr. Aguila
2) Lady Apache, Marcela, Sahori b Amapola, Hiroka, Mima Shimoda
3) Damian 666, Halloween, Mr. Aguila b Felino, Heavy Metal, Negro Casas
4) Dr. Wagner Jr., Lizmark Jr., Rey Bucanero DQ Atlantis, Olimpico, Ultimo Guerrero
5) Mistico b Averno

The cheap kids tickets filled up the arena, which telegraphs the main event finish. Check out the fall times for the main event, via Ocampo
1) 1:54
2) 3:11
3) 16:45

Uh huh. You can guess the finish, and it reads like a good match. Mistico challenged for the mask match again, and Averno was so frustrated, he accepted – but for the CMLL Middleweight Title match. That’s not on the schedule for next week, or at least so far.

Alexis posted the 01/12 lineup on box y lucha, and it’s off season-ish with no ongoing issues (though I can make up a few things.) Sangre and Koslov make it all the way up to the semimain (unless they ARE doing Mistico/Averno and they’re bumped down to a more reasonable spot.)

Other notes: Ultimo Guerrero fouled Dr. Wagner to draw the DQ in the semimain…Amapola had Lady Apache rolled up for the win in the second match (with a little help from the ropes), but Marcela turned over the pin. Amapola’s still looking for a title shot…Mini Damian yanked Tzuki’s mask to get the DQ in the opener.

airing on GdR
12/22 Mexico: Arkangel, Loco Max, Okumura b Fabian el Gitano, Leono, Tony Rivera
01/01 Coliseo: Heavy Metal, La Mascara, Volador Jr. vs Mascara Ano 2000, Terrible, Universo 2000
Unmasked: Black Warrior

It’s pretty impressive that I’m typing this, because I’m currently losing my mind. 12/22 was the taping that was never aired – except they absolutely positively had to go back to make sure we got our weekly match with those goofs (and not, say, just air the Volador/Averno match!) And that’s a Coliseo match which has like a 5% of being any good – did they save the main event for the non-existent FSE show? And the story of Black Warrior being unmasked, we sure haven’t heard about that any time recently, nooooo.

Why? Why? Is this spite? I’m sorry for whatever I did. Please stop.

Edit: Actually, that match is the same one they aired last week. Why? That makes even less sense.

  1. FSE is airing:

    CMLL (MON) 01/01 Arena Coliseo
    Nitro, Okumura, Sangre Azteca b Maximo, Texano Jr., Virus

    Black Warrior, Olimpico, Tarzan Boy b Hijo de Lizmark, Mistico, Shocker

  2. it would suck more if FSE Mexico was also taking a break…

    BTW, it’s a shame that the Primera Caida stuff is gone.

  3. Don’t worry Cubs, next week you won’t see Fabian b/c he’s on regular CMLL TV right now. I would have marked out a couple years back if I heard Ramstein was getting a TV match. Now I’m pissed his match is airing…

  4. Any trio out of fabian El Gitano/Leono/Texano/Tony Rivera is about the most boring, uninteresting one imaginable just now. But this week if that match is airing, i assume it’s at the expense of La Familia De Casas V La Familia De Tijuana, so it’s no big loss.

    Might also mean that next week we get Tigre Blanco, Starman and Ramstein, and in a fortnight we get Flash/Super Nova/Sensei V Los Guillereros/Zayko.

    Of course, if it goes back to that format, we’ll be gutted when the next Arena Mex segunda of sometihng like Metron/Virus/Stuka V Sangre/Misterioso/Koslov doesn’t air because of showing Coliseo matches.
    :(

    What makes you think they won’t be airing it? Wouldn’t be the first time they air a repeat on GdR… would it?

    They aired 4 matches, first one being the ladies… I didn’t watch them since AULL is being broadcasted at the same time…

  6. Ladies aired? Show was supposed to start at 6pm my time but when I turned in the Fabian match was in progress. Which ladies match was it?

  7. Just because I might be losing my mind too, but I’m assuming we’re saying the Averno/Mistico finish was Mistico clean by La Mistica?

  8. “Just because I might be losing my mind too, but I’m assuming we’re saying the Averno/Mistico finish was Mistico clean by La Mistica?”

    Well, I guess that you let the kid enter for free to see that finish… so… yep, that was it…

    Rob:

    Show started earlier, was the ladies match from yesterday… I was watching the first hour of AULL but it was SOOOOO bad that I prefered to tune into Gala for the CMLL show even if I’m getting it in the week…

  9. If they could just settle on the format of 4 matches in 2hrs of normal CMLL TV, there would never be another anxious wait to see if certain matches are going to air – because we’d see them all and there would be no problems at all!

    It’s been said so often, but 3 short matches in 1:45 hrs is nothing short of farcical. A few years back, you sometimes even got 5 matches, without major clippage.

    Did they show that dive from Flash on momentos?

  10. The show started earlier, so I don’t know if maybe they have 2 1/2 hours…

    I didn’t see Momentos because I was watching AULL

  11. They didn’t show the Flash dive but they showed Caligula/Messala killing him with an awesome dual dropkick on the ramp spot which is ten times better than any dive.:) Crowd popped too.
