Puebla, EAW

CMLL (MON) 12/14 Arena Puebla [El Sol de Puebla, R de Rudo]
1) Asturiano & Tigre Rojo b Karisma & Mr. Rafaga
2) Ares, Hooligan, Policeman b Guerrero Maya Jr., Lestat, Starman
3) Fantasy, Mascarita Dorada, Shockercito b Pequeño Damian 666, Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Violencia
4) Dragon Rojo Jr., Misterioso II, Sangre Azteca b Hijo del Fantasma, Máximo, Rouge
5) Brazo de Plata, Strong Man, Toscano DQ Rey Bucanero, Terrible, Texano Jr.

Rey snuck in a foul on Strong Man and the sources differ from there on the official finish. El Sol says Bucanero got the win, R de Rudo says Bucanero got DQed.

Rudos won the semimain in straight falls, which sets up the title match for next week. Hijo del Fantasma and Sangre Azteca as Sangre was talking to the press after the match.

Ares replaced Escorpion, which makes two shows Escorpion’s MIA from. Injured? Being regimmicked? Busy shopping for holiday gifts?

In addition to all the other discounts (1 adult = 5 kids tickets free) going on this month, CMLL is also letting in any child under 5 years old for free.

DJ Spectro starts his Best of 2009 with special recognition to Mr. Niebla.

EAW is supposed to announce a show for New Years Day in Mexico City today.

12/19-20 Lucha Times

Still hadn’t gotten around to this:

last week’s IWRG – haven’t watched
last week’s 52MX – have watched! Dalis is not ready for prime time, but which of the CMLL luchadora novatas are?

AAA-US: Dunno. This was the week where AAA had no new material, and we found out nothing about what aired except the Dorian vignette. To complicate things further, there’s no Saturday afternoon airing.

52MX: Fabian/Rouge/Metro (3 straight weeks) vs Euforia/Nosferatu/Skandalo, plus Sombra/Shocker/STRONG MAN vs Terrible/Texano/Vangelis

IWRG: more Bushi vs the Oficials, and more Pirata vs Super Porky

AAA on MexicoTV: two facts I probably should’ve known already
– even those these are listed as 2 hours, they’re two 1 hour shows stapled together
– each one hour show is two (nearly random) match from a taping
– they’re going to be speeding thru these at that rate
– the title card for these say “Lucha Libre USA” – are these the 1 hour episodes to be redubbed with English commentary? Doing 3 years old episodes seems a bit silly.

CMLL: only two hours, so the minis atomicos is no-man’s land unless something changes. Probably make TV next week. But you do get the Rey Bucanero/Ultimo Guerrero reunion.

AAA-MEX: Guerra de Titanes part 1

CMLL-FOX: on at 5pm. Fox Sports redid their sites, and the links to their programming schedule are either not working or not visible, so my times for these may be off. Both title matches seem headed for this show.

AAA-FOX: Not sure if this is the last new show or not – they’ll have the last two points matches, but they always could spin the actual final into another show.

C3: METRO. And people getting hurt. Would be cool if they’re actually going to deliver on that Blue Panther/Negro Casas match.

Puebla: Can’t find a working link to TVC Deportes listing anywhere – the one on their site doesn’t seem to be listing actual program names, sadly – so time is probably wrong. Matches probably aren’t any better.

Monterrey: Gotta be the top 3 from last Sunday’s show, right?
