CMLL (SUN) 11/16 Arena Neza [SuperLuchas #291]
1) Motocross II & Principe Tapatio b Dragon Xtreme & Furia Roja
2) Principe Mexiquense b Súper Comando, Rayo Tapatío I, Rayo Tapatío II, Emperador, Damian el Inmortal, Bengala, Flecha, Estruendo, Artillero, Ramstein, Starman [cibernetico]
3) Efesto, Hooligan, Mephisto b Black Warrior, Fabian el Gitano, Starman
4) Blue Panther, Canelo Casas, Hijo del Solitario DQ Villano III, Villano IV, Villano V
5) Dr. Wagner Jr., Felino, Heavy Metal DQ Atlantis, Averno, Último Guerrero
This was the Scorpio Jr. show, with a lineup different than originally announced. Local promoter was MD, and it looks like they might be trying to run Neza regularly (again?). UG fouled Wagner and got caught fo the DQ. The Canelo Casas in the semimain was not Heavy Metal working under his old gimmick, but a young kid under that name. Surely related, perhaps someone new, perhaps someone who’s usually a Tiger or a Puma.
IWRG (SUN) 11/23 Arena Naucalpan
1) Shuriken b Soldado del Dibalo
2) King Drako & Nemesis (IWRG) b Chico Che & Eragon
3) Black Terry, Cerebro Negro, Dr. Cerebro b Gemelo Fantastico I, Gemelo Fantastico II, Marco Rivera
4) Head Hunter I, Toxico AAA, Veneno b Multifacético, Solar I, Ultramán Jr.
5) Hijo del Cien Caras & Mascara Ano 2000 Jr. DQ Arlequin & el Hijo del Pierroth [IWRG IC TAG]
Arlequin pinned MA2K Jr. for the win, but the referee belatedly realized the challenger got the pin because Pierroth II ran in and fouled Mascara.
Maybe the year doesn’t end on 12/12 after all. CMLL is sending “more than 20 wrestlers” for a special show at Arena Coliseo Guadalajara on 12/14. Mistico, a women’s match and a minis match are promised, as well as half price tickets. This sure seems like counter programming the Guadalajara Lucha Libre Festival, scheduled for the same weekend. The local arena is also running a show at the local children’s hospital, only for the children, on 12/10.
The latest SuperLuchas also reveals Mistico’s match at the Tokyo Dome for NJPW is currently scheduled to be Prince Devitt, Ryusuke Taguchi, and Mistico vs Jado, Gedo, and Averno. If not for the thousands of miles of distance and the many hours of travel, Jado and ego would’ve had to be Perros del Mal members and probably would still be in Jauria del Terror (if they ever get their own t-shirts), right? It’s a similar ethos. It does occur to me now that if Mistico is in Japan on 01/04, CMLL’s not going to go back to Arena Mexico until 01/09. He’s got to be on that card, or why bother doing it.
Elsewhere in the same magazine, Dark Angel mentions going to Japan in February.
Ovaciones also reports the DF Lucha Libre commission will be giving out it’s annual awards on 12/03.

Masada is pretty random. I assume Tetsuda is a trainee from somewhere. No Friday show here. In possibly related news, SuperLuchas reports TVC Deportes has droped the IWRG telecasts, due to IWRG moving all of it’s big matches to the TV Azteca tapings.

If nothing else, I’m happy Turbo and Black Thunder are getting booked more. Actually, if nothing else, I’m happy I worked in “ethos”. That’s a college education at work!
