Negro Casas & Texano retain their titles, updated IWRG lineup

CMLL (TUE) 12/01 Arena Mexico [Notimex]
1) Astral & Fantasy vs Pequeño Nitro & Pequeño Universo 2000
2) Dr. X, Durango Kid, Escorpion vs Guerrero Maya Jr., Sensei, Tigre Blanco
3) Arkangel de la Muerte, Bronco, Virus b Ángel Azteca Jr., Ángel de Oro, Ángel de Plata
4) Blue Panther, Toscano, Valiente DQ Averno, Dragon Rojo Jr., Mr. Niebla
5) Negro Casas b Máscara Dorada [CMLL WELTER]

Toscano and Escorpion were their cornerman for the main event. Names out of a hat! Negro took the first, Dorada the second, and Negro took the third clean to retain the title. Notimex’s recap says Dorada did not fly as much as usual, but the pictures make it look as though he got caught going for one too many.

Rudos lost the semifinals in straight falls, Averno unmasking Valiente and Toscano getting filed by someone in the second.

CMLL (TUE) 12/01 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [Fuego en el Ring]
1) Exterminador b El Divino
2) Angelo & Metatrón b In Memoria & Malefico
3) Acertijo, Asesino Negro, Drago b Astaroth, Hierro, Metal Blanco
4) Atlantis, Naito, Yujiro b Brazo de Plata, Máximo, Sagrado
5) Texano b Shocker [NWA LH]

If I thought to do a poll for this one, the question would not be about the winner, but whether Shocker would show up. Happily, he did. Shocker won the first, Texano the second. Texano faked a foul in the third, but the referee did not allow it (that’s going around), and Texano won with two backcrackers.

Imagine if Texano beat Shocker and Atlantis clean in singles matches in Arena Mexico. That would actually be elevating someone. But at least now he’s big in Guadalajara. Anyway, Texano says he no longer feels like he’s a rookie and he’s becoming a star, but he’s not 100% satisfied because he still has that big match on Friday.

Cronicas y Leyenda looks back at Ultraman 2000 in FMW and the Mongolian Mauler in Mexico, “one of the worst wrestlers to ever visit our arenas”.

La Journda has an article on a new book on lucha libre in Aguascalientes, except they don’t seem to say where you might get the book. Or the name of the book.

IWRG (SUN) 12/06 Arena Naucalpan
1) Angel de la Noche vs Keshin Black
2) Gemelo Fantastico I & Gemelo Fantastico II vs Anubis & Mixteco Jr.
3) Eragon, Exodia, Freelance vs Black Terry, Cerebro Negro, Dr. Cerebro
4) Bushi, Suicida, Zatura vs Histeria, Psicosis, Tóxico
5) El Alebrije, Hijo del Lizmark, Super Porky vs Hijo del Cien Caras, Pirata Morgan, Veneno

Plenty of changes, most notable the Oficials being missing but Bushi still being on after the mask match. Make of that what you will. The poster has Suicida on both sides of the semifinal, but I assume Toxico is still meant to be on the rudo side.
