(Black Terry Jr. has video of this show on his YouTube channel.)

Veteran/Rookie tournament. Dr. Cerebro replaced Cerebro Negro, which makes sense. Rocket replaced Freelance, which does not quite make sense.  Cerebro & Signo are the winners; no word on a specific prize.

During the show, IWRG gave out awards were given to some wrestlers in Black Terry Jr.’s wrestling class: Gringo Loco, Flama Infernal, Hijo del Signo, and Black Terry. Hooray!

There’s a lot of shows today taking advantage of Dia de Reyes, and CMLL’s Arena Coliseo show is probably the biggest. Kind of a surprise that they’re moving a special show out of Arena Mexico, since it always goes the other way. The big match on the show is the final of the Mexican Trios Tournament.

This poll scares me.

On Monday, Ovaciones explains this tournament was taking place because the titles had not been defended for 90 days. Other titles that should be vacated by that standard:

  • CMLL World Minis Championship: Bam Bam (no known defenses since 12/19/2008)
  • CMLL World Light Heavyweight Championship: Epehsto (no known defenses – AT ALL. Won it on 05/26/09)
  • CMLL World Heavyweight Championship: Ultimo Guerrero (no known defenses since 09/25/2009)
  • CMLL World Trios Championship: Hector Garza, La Mascara, Hijo del Fantasma (no known defenses since 09/16/09)
  • NWA World Welterweight Championship: Mephisto (no known defenses since 07/13/09)
  • Mexican National Lightweight Championship: Pierrothito (no known defenses since 09/25/09)

A lot of tournaments coming up! (Someone smarted up, because that reason is not mentioned today.)

Cronicas Y Leyendas looks back at Mil Mascaras, athlete of the year 1977.

Estrella del Ring has interviews with Arena San Juan wrestlers Nino de Ebano, Caricia, Colombiano & Miserable.

In this link, Intocable hits on random Mexican singer, describes himself in bed. I am sorry I’m including that link.

El Hijo del Santo says PERHAPS this will be the year he and Blue Demon Jr. face off in a mask match. Or maybe they’ll team. Or maybe they’ll do neither of these things.

CMLL (SUN) 01/10 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) El Divino vs Katana
2) Magnum & Samurai vs Acertijo & Exterminador
3) Gallo & Neutrón vs Malefico & Mr. Trueno
4) Dalis la Caribeña, Lluvia, Star Fire vs La Comandante, Magnifica, Princesa Sujei
5) Brazo de Plata, La Sombra, Toscano vs Terrible, Texano, Vangelis

That’s going to be a rough semifinal.

CMLL (TUE) 01/12 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Relampago & Virgo vs Meteoro & Thunder Boy
2) Angelo & Metatrón vs Asesino Negro & Drago
3) Hierro & Palacio Negro vs Ángel del Mal & Rey Trueno
4) Máscara Dorada & Máximo vs Ephesto & Euforia
5) Blue Panther & Brazo de Plata vs Terrible & Texano

Feels like nothing going on here (too.)

No 6 top stories of the last 2 weeks today. There hasn’t really been any.

I’ll be on Figure Four Daily later today.

  1. When it comes to the trios titles, & who’s winning them. All I can say is, get ready to start calling Mascara Dorada, “El Doble Campeon”.

  2. HEY MAN
    YOU SHOULD KNOW THAT
    THE LUCHA LIBRE COMISSION
    JUST OWNS THE MEXICAN NATIONAL TITLES
    THE OTHER TITLES (LIKE CMLL OR NWA) ARE NOT RESPOSABILITY OF IT.

  3. Tecs are so winning the belts. It’s complex b/c it involvs a lot of math but you have to multiply the fact CMLL bookers are idiots by the superpush El Romano has been getting then divide that by Stuka Jr. never being given anything then multiply that by CMLL being fascinated with surprise title changes in 2009 then divide that by it being a kids show.

    The answer is: Tecnicos are winning the belts but Stuka Jr. will not be allowed to put the title around his waist.

  4. @Rob: If Stuka Jr. wins, I vote for him only being allowed to defend these titles at Arena Coliseo to offset the fact that the Coliseo tag titles are never defended there.

    I took Poder Mexica, but that is just wishful thinking on my part probably.

  5. re: the result (as spoiled on Cubs’ twitter)

    AHAHAHAHAHA! This is the one time I don’t want to take credit for predicting something right.

    But I will anyways.

    I called every single match in this tournament. This is exactly why I should never be allowed to book anywhere outside of Arena Neza.

    Oh well… hopefully this can at least lead to one tecnicos vs tecnicos title match (e.g. Kids Day 2008) before the titles are vacated again. I nominate Dorada/Stuka/Metro vs Cometa/Pegasso/Diamante.
