In the third fall of the main event, Shocker accidentally knocked down the ref. Terrible decided to fake a low blow. Instead of standing there and arguing, Shocker just covered him, and the ref revived to count the win for the tecnicos.
Marcela suffered an injury in the second match – ESTO calls it serious – and was strechered out in the second fall.
Tecnicas still managed to win without her, which doesn’t seem like the direction they were headed there. Correction: Rudos won 3 on 2. CMLL.com teases a Princesa Blanca vs Sahori match, which sounds very scary (just as much for Marcela being out.)
Ovaciones says NWE (the European group) will be running it’s first show in Mexico in February. No date or location announced, but the main event is expected to be Juvi vs Perro Jr. for the NWE Cruiserweight Title. Juvi’s been building that match up in the press for a while. It reads as if it’ll be a joint Perro/NWE production based on the names announced (RVD, Dragon, all the Perros, Wagner, Super Crazy, etc.) NWE currently has TV on Mexico’s version of 52MX.
IWRG is running a 20 man cage match next Thursday. Back to back Thursday cage matches for them.
CMLL (TUE) 01/06 Arena Coliseo
1) Ángel Azteca Jr. & Angel de Oro vs Camorra & Semental
2) Mascarita Dorada vs Último Dragoncito, Bam Bam, Nino de Acero, Pequeno Ninja, Pequeño Damian 666, Pequeño Halloween, Mr. Águila, Pequeño Warrior, Pequeño Violencia [cibernetico, Pequeno Reres de Aire]
3) Mictlán, Sagrado, Toscano vs Euforia, Lizmark Jr., Nosferatu
4) Héctor Garza, Místico, Shocker vs Atlantis, Negro Casas, Mr. Niebla
No typo, this is a Tuesday show in Arena Coliseo, first in almost exactly a year (01/08/07).
Previous Pequeno Reyes de Aire winners:
01/04/08: Mascarita Dorada (over Mini Damian)
07/13/07: Mini Damian 666 (over Bam Bam)
Maybe this is going to be an annual first week of the year tradition? Big week for the minis, with this and the cage match on the following Sunday.
Main event will be Garza’s first match back in Mexico City in a month; he starts up Sunday in Guadalajara.
Tickets for this show are discounted: $1 for children, 50, 30, 25 for adults.
No Friday lineup up yet. I’ll edit it in when it turns up (and I have a chance).
