After Perro Jr. got himself involved in the semimain, LA Park added himself to the main event to go for revenge, and ended up winning. Just not against Perro Jr. Matematico Jr. is listed as Renato Garcia, 42, from DF.
(Strong Style Spirit) NJPW, or Jushin Liger more specifically, announced they’d be bringing back the Super J Cup on December 22nd and 23rd. No other specific are announced – not size or participants. Obviously, Mistico would be a safe bet to be included, to set up something for the 01/04 Dome show. If you remember, there was an interview with Sombra in El Siglo de Torreon where he stated he’d be going to Japan in December – perhaps this is that trip? CMLL will be in it’s down period by then, and it’s midweek shows, so it’s not like those two will be missed for a few days. We’ll probably find out a little more next Sunday, when Mistico defends the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship vs Tiger Mask IV in Sumo Hall.
The Mexican cosulate in Montreal is presenting a lucha libre exhibit starting next Sunday.
Kcidis notes the third anniversary of Huracan Ramirez‘s passing.
SuperLuchas #338 has Rey Misterios vs Batsita on the cover. Inside, there’s an interview with Luis Mariscal, who is not dead.
LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.

3) Flash, Metro, Stuka Jr. vs Euforia, Shigeo Okumura, Vangelis
4) Mephisto vs Tetsuya Naito
5) Máscara Dorada, Místico, Volador Jr. vs Ephesto, Felino, Negro Casas
Maybe Naito gets the singles win this week to set up next week? Maybe the main event sets up a totally different fan appreciation match? Not sure.
IWRG (THU) 11/05 Arena Naucalapn
1) Mascara Magnifica vs Keshin Black
2) Bushi, Star Boy, Suicida vs Avisman, Maldito Jr., Samoth

You’ve got me. Plenty of possibles. I’m hoping Arlequin *Negro* is a typo and not a new wrestler debuting in a mask because, but it’s IWRG. Zatura hasn’t been around since June. It’s the season to do a ton of apuesta matches, I guess.
CMLL (FRI) 11/06 Arena Mexico
1) Astro Boy & Delta vs Calígula & Méssala
2) Eléctrico, Mascarita Dorada, Pequeño Olímpico vs Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Violencia, Pierrothito

4) Mr. Niebla, Terrible, Texano Jr. vs Ray Mendoza Jr., Tetsuya Naito, Yujiro
5) Héctor Garza, Shocker, Val Venis vs Atlantis, Negro Casas, Último Guerrero
I remembered wrong; it was 11/06 they said Val would debut. Surprised they can get away with calling him Val Venis, but AAA got away with using all the DX stuff so who knows. Did Strong Man go home, or did he just get a couple of weeks off?
CMLL (SUN) 11/08 Arena Coliseo
1) Bengala & Principe vs Apocalipsis & Zayco
2) Diamante, Guerrero Maya Jr., Starman vs Artillero, Escorpion, Súper Comando

4) Blue Panther, Máximo, Toscano vs Naito, Sangre Azteca, Yujiro
5) Brazo de Plata, La Sombra, Volador Jr. vs Averno, Mephisto, Texano Jr.
More Porky. This is supposed to be the Arena Mexico show, but it’s not at Arena Mexico. Looks like they may be setting up a tag program here anyway.
Whoever booked the semimain is sadly unaware of No Limit disliking to team with Mexicans, I guess.
CMLL (SUN) 11/08 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Meteoro & Virgo vs In Memoria & Titanio
2) Magnum & Samurai vs Egipcio & Rafaga

4) Atlantis, Mr. Niebla, Último Guerrero vs Héctor Garza, Shocker, Val Venis

5) ?, Bobby Lee Jr., Olímpico vs Fuerza Guerrera, Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Pirata Morgan
Taped for TV. Which you can sort of tell by them bringing in lots of people and not filling the first three matches with students.
