CMLL (SUN) 11/02 Arena Coliseo [Ovaciones, CMLL]
1) Sensei & Trueno b Calígula & Méssala
2) Amapola, Mima Shimoda, Princesa Sujei b Dark Angel, Goddess, India Sioux
3) Euforia, Nosferatu, Virus b Flash, Máscara Púrpura, Stuka Jr.
4) La Máscara, Máximo, Volador Jr. b Averno, Skandalo, Terrible
5) Blue Panther, Dos Caras Jr., Marco Corelone b Black Warrior, Mr. Niebla, Rey Bucanero
Warrior replaced Lizmark Jr. Skandalo replaced Heavy Metal. I am shocked these people did not show. Anyway, we ended up with Lagunero on Lagunero in the main event, which seems like it was mostly ignored. Dos got Niebla clean with a press and a powerbomb. Niebla wants a title shot. Maybe he should’ve won then.
After the tercera, the Infernales challenged for a tag title match. Amapola beat Angel with a hand on the ropes.
CMLL (SUN) 11/02 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [MT]
3) Valiente b Misterioso II, Hijo del Fantasma, Sagrado, Héctor Garza, Metal Blanco, Sangre Azteca, Dragon Rojo Jr., Güero Loco, Rafaga [cibernetico]
4) La Sombra & Metalik b Olímpico & Último Guerrero [Torneo Corona, final]
They worked the main event as a rematch of the torneo end. Rudos took the first, tecnicos took the second and the third with stereo ‘ranas. Cibernetico came down to Valiente vs Misterioso, and Misterioso was so upset about losing, he put his Occidente Light Heavyweight title on the line next week versus Valiente. Whoever is booking here is awesome; I don’t even care who wins that match, I just need to see it.
IWRG (SUN) 11/02 Arena Naucalpan
1) Epidemia b Halcon 2000
2) Fenix & Miss Gaviota b Avisman & King Drako
3) Eragon, Gemelo Fantastico II, Gemelo Fatastico I b Dr. Cerebro, Heavy Boy, Nemesis IWRG
4) Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro b Aeroman, Freelance, Zatura
5) Fuerza Guerrera, Toxico AAA, Veneno b Black Terry, Capitán Muerte, Xibalba
6) Arlequin L Mascara Ano 2000 Jr., Fantasma de la Ópera, Multifacético, el Hijo Del Anibal, Hijo del Cien Caras, Ultramán Jr., Jack, Pendulo, el Hijo del Pierroth [mask, cage]
Order of Escape:
– Ultraman Jr.
– Fantasma de la opera
– Hijo de Anibal
– Cien Caras Jr. (accidentally leaving his cousin behind)
Mascara Ano 2000 Jr. was pretty well dead from chairshots at this point, so just as Hijo de Pierroth was leaving the cage to win, Arlequin came back in to steal the win for himself. Arlequin pinned MA2K Jr. for a three count, except you can’t win by three counts in IWRG. Mascara recovered to plancha Arlequin, but Arlequin counter him. Mascara recoved to go up agian, Arlequin was all ready to counter him again, and Mascara just climbed out for a win. If I was Arlequin and I lost like that, you’d never see me again.
Arlequin is Manuel Mejia, from Mexico City, 20 years a wrestler. That name doesn’t turn up anything in the wiki, but he’s certainly been around here as someone else.
Fuerza got away with a foul on Terry, and they did a mask/hair challenge after.
SuperLuchas writes about the Hulk DVD special show at Arena Mexico Thursday. Sombra/Euforia should be quite fun. Look at this week, if you will:
Tuesday – monthly Fan Appreciation show with 30 peso tickets everywhere + Panther honored
Thursday – show featuring lots of free tickets
Friday – they want people to pay to see Mistico return
This’ll work GREAT. Which transitions perfect to
Villalobos (SUN) 11/16 Palenque de la Feria, Tlaxcala
1) Mini Scorpio & Mini Zumbido vs Mini Ozzy & Rock Spirit
2) Meteoro, Pegasso Extreme, Rey Cometa vs Bryan, Johnny Boy, Monsther
3) Esther Moreno, Linda Star, Martha Villalobos vs Ayako Hamada, Lady Warrior, Mujer Demente
4) Abismo Negro & Intocable vs Damián 666 & Mr. Águila
Yes, that’s the original Abismo Negro, attempting to work under that name as an indy. You wouldn’t think AAA would go for that, but there’s Intocable working as Intocable. And across the ring – if the Perros are leaving on good terms, why are they leaving before the new promotion is running? Working these dates can’t do much for them. Is Ayako out of AAA? That’d be a shame. I don’t think that Mini Zumbido is Freelance, but who knows.
indy (THU) 11/06 Arena Solidaridad [RFC]
1) Gavilan Negro & Maldito vs Principe Rebelde & Sky
2) Gato Volador, Orientale I, Orientale II vs Bengali, Flecha Azul, Gitano
3) Diluvio Negro I, Diluvio Negro II, Tigre Universitario vs Difunto I, Difunto II, Rey Hechicero
4) Coco Rojo, Coco Verde, Cocolores vs Super Muneco, Super Pinocho, Super Raton
5) Dr. Wagner Jr., Intocable, Shocker vs Damián 666, LA Park, Mr. Águila
They’re bringing in all the indy guys fresh from TV they can get, to make up for having no AAA guys.
WagnerMania is once again posting the weekly CMLL highlights from A Ras De Lona.
SoloLuchas teases a Festival of Lucha Libre in Guadalajara next month.
Todos X el Todos is headed back to Spain in Madrid, on November 29 and 30th. I presume this means they’re in London the following week.
