Recaps from last night: Notimex (undercard, main event), Record, Luchas2000, Fuego en el Ring, MedioTiempo, ESTO (“A night full of surprises”), Cesar’s detailed recap. The Ras de Lona video is below; SuperLuchas has more video here and here.
They continued to play up Volador/Mistico strong, with Mistico diving in on Volador to start the match, fighting in the cage, and then fighting outside the cage after they both escaped. They teased going back into the cage, but the referees blocked them. There’s no re-entry in CMLL cage matches, apparently.
The El Hijo del Santo/Blue Demon Jr. charity show scheduled for Sunday in Guadalajara is now rescheduled for December 5. Sounds like ticket sales were very weak. Apolo Dantes was blaming the competition, both soccer and CMLL’s show. You’d think they’d know the soccer schedule in advance (though the national game was probably recently announced), and no one should be surprised by CMLL running a big show against other promotions whenever they come into their home areas. December 5 is another Sunday; unless it’s part of Guadalajara’s December lucha libre festival, CMLL will load up again.
El Hijo del Santo talks of touring Colombia and possibly bringing Todos x el Todos to Canada. (Europe seems out.) Santo accuses CMLL of denigrating lucha libre, and is particularly sad that Negro Casas is reduced to acting like a clown. Santo says he’s only returning to CMLL under his own conditions.
AAA has a partial lineup for DTU’s 10/03 war of the promotions show. AULL counts as a promotion! Electroshock & Silver King are listead as “M.A.L.O.” instead of Maniacos.
Mil Mascaras will celebrate his 45th anniversary on 10/11 in Japan.
LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.
CMLL (FRI) 09/10 Arena Mexico
1) Ángel Azteca Jr. & Guerrero Maya Jr. vs Durango Kid & Puma King
2) Diamante, Pegasso, Rey Cometa vs Cancerbero, Demus 3:16, Raziel
3) Blue Panther & Máscara Dorada vs Hijo del Fantasma & Stuka Jr. and La Sombra & Místico and Sagrado & Toscano and Brazo de Plata & Máximo and Rayo de Jalisco Jr. & Valiente and Rush & Strong Man and La Máscara & Shocker [Torneo Bicentenario]
4) Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas, Rey Bucanero vs Charly Manson, Olímpico, Psicosis
Main event sets up Bucanero/Manson. Mistico/Sombra look like definite favorites here. (Which would make Niebla/Volador favorites on Tuesday.) This is Demus’ debut in the big leagues and teaming him with the Cancerbros and against those tenicos makes sense.
