WAGNER (SUN) 01/10 Cuerva Torreon [La WagnerMania]
1) Arana del Futuro, Chamuco Trevino, Psycho b Dr. Wagner Jr., Hijo de Dr. Wagner Jr., Silver King
All three Wagners. Before the match, the local Box Y Lucha commissioner brought out a cake to honor Silver King for his 42nd birthday. (Slightly different than how other commissions have reacted to him.) Their rudo opponents for the main event came out and Chamuco Trevino knocked the cake out of Silver King’s hands. Can’t have your cake and eat them too. Trevino got Hijo de Wagner in the third fall with his feet on the ropes. A bit of surprise, unless there’s bigger plans here.

Almost a complete rudo night. Main event was a straight fall win for the rudos, Felino sneaking in a foul on Sombra for the win in the second fall.
CMLL (TUE) 01/19 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [Fuego en el Ring]
1) Nube Roja b Skaxy
2) Acertijo & Exterminador b Idolo & Virgo
3) Ebola & Ráfaga b Astaroth & Hierro
4) La Máscara, Metal Blanco, Stuka Jr. b Dragon Rojo Jr., Máscara Mágica, Sangre Azteca
5) Shocker & Valiente b Ephesto & Texano
A bit of a shuffle on the top two matches. Valiente was bumped up to the main event. La Mascara worked his spot in the semimain, getting Sangre with a campana.
Valiente replaced Maximo. Despite being on Ras de Lona and talking about teaming with Mr. Niebla, Maximo’s now been missing shows for two weeks. I hope this is worked out by Friday. Terrible, last seen bleeding from the nose after a match with Super Porky, was replaced by Ephesto. That might have been a planned change, because Valiente beat Ephesto in the main event and the two immediately agreed to a title match next week.
Doens’t sound like anyone was signed out of the AAA tryout yesterday. Instead, AAA told people that they’d be opening a school in Los Angeles, and some people would be called back then.
R de Rudo has it’s own recap (and video) of last Sunday’s Ecatepec’s TV taping. Read which DTU wrestlers are working the dark match.
The new commissioner of lucha libre in Juarez wants to create a new championship as his first act. I’d vote to impeach just for that.
Kcidis illustrates Ultimo Guerrero vs Hector Garza.
El Pancracio interviews Policeman, who says his actual job is “police man”. That may be 100% true but I can not believe it.
Cronicas y Leyendas starts a series on the story of Ultimo Dragon, and has a phot of the Brazos in Japan.
Segunda Caida starts it’s Complete & Accurate recap of all Cassandro taped matches with matches from AAA TV in 2007 & 2008
Luchas 2000 #504 has Rey Misterio Jr. and the AAA Movie on the cover.
