CMLL (SUN) 01/10 Arena Coliseo [Ovaciones (PDF), ESTO]
1) Rayo Tapatío I & Rayo Tapatío II b Cholo & Disturbio

4) Astro Boy, Hijo del Fantasma, Sagrado b Dragon Rojo Jr., Naito, Sangre Azteca
5) Blue Panther, Místico, Strong Man b Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto
Strong Man pinned Mephisto and Mistico pinned Averno, which led to Mistico challenging Mistico for a match next week. I don’t get it, but next week is a Fan Appreciation show at Arena Mexico so it’ll probably happen.
Astro Boy filled in for Maximo. Tercera was all about teasing Azteca/Arkangel again.
CMLL (SUN) 01/10 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [El Occidental, Fuego en el Ring]

6) Brazo de Plata, La Sombra, Toscano DQ Terrible, Texano, Vangelis
Porky faked a foul from Terrible, then declared he was a better wrestler than Terrible and so they should meet in a hair/mask match. Terrible said no, but they’ll have a singles match next week.
Magnum & Samurai had issues in their match for the second straight week.

4) Dr. Cerebro b Bushi [IWRG IC Light]
5) Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Máscara Año 2000 Jr., Pirata Morgan b El Alebrije, el Hijo del Canek, Pantera
Piratas beat Hijo del Canek and took his mask.
Bushi not only lost in two falls, he lost in two falls after taking a martinete (from Dr. Cerebro’s cornerman Hijo del Diablo) and was strechered out of Arena Naucalpan. Enjoy Japan! Dr. Cerebro was appalled Diablo prevented from winning the belt cleanly, so there are issues there.
Show was not taped for TV – looks like Thursday will be – but Black Terry Jr. has video at the link. How does he manage to get video and photos at the same time? The man is talented.
Edit: Perros del Mal says the second part of it’s latest Arena Neza show will air today at 5pm and 11pm on TVC Deportes.

4) Argenis, Atomic Boy, Super Aguila b Gema, Polvo de Esterllas, Yuriko
5) Crazy Boy, El Alebrije, Gato Eveready b El Brazo, Silver King, Último Gladiador
Free show, but a noticeable weak lineup which seemed worth pointing out in light of the recent attendance comments. Article mentions Electroshock was supposed to work the main event but got into an accident on the way to the show and arrived late. Another article quotes Electroshock as having forgotten what time this show was, speeding to make it on time, losing a tire, and colliding into a truck. Electroshock (and his companion) are OK. El Brazo (as AAA rep) and Electroshock said Electroshock would come back to work for free here at some point down the line, maybe Kid’s Day.
Villano III supposes CMLL isn’t using him because they’re afraid he’ll beat all the kids. Villano III says he’s got trips to Puerto Rico, Japan and possibly Canada.
