Zorro takes Nicho’s hair, X-LAW, Taichi/Maximo

Who’s doing the monthly CMLL recaps for wikipedia? I’m guessing you’re reading this because of similar source links, but I’m just curious about it.

AAA PdN (SAT) 10/30 Poliforo Juan Gabriel [Mi Lucha Libre]
5) ZorroNicho el Millionario [hair]

Weapons match with Mini Abismo Negro and Octagoncito (as seconds) getting involved, and the referee favoring Zorro the whole way. No counts when Nicho had a pin, fast count for Zorro’s win. After the match, Nicho protested, demanded the ref be suspended for six months, questioned if the referee even had a license, and refused to get any more than a few locks cut off. However, later in the locker room, Nicho did get his hair shaved. Good he did it, bad the fans didn’t get to see it. Nicho complained more about the referee in an interview.

X-LAW (SAT) 10/30 Arena Lopez Mateos [SuperLuchas]
1) La Vaquerita b La Pantera and Chica Tormenta
2) Bunker & Chapulin Negro b Dragon Ninja, Lumino, Okuzono
3) Epidemia, Heavy Boy, Sadico DRAW Arsenal, Distubrio Ledesma, Sadico (Tampico)
4) Serval b El Duende, Aborto [XLAW WELTER]
5) Bestia 666, Grendel, Heimdal b Carta Brava, Cerebro Negro, Fantasma de la Ópera
6) Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro b Angel o Demonio, Leon Rojo, Obett
7) Super Crazy b Joe Lider, Shyru Dragon [XLAW JH]
8) Sabu b Damián 666 [XLAW INT]

Damian attacked Sabu in a press conference the day before the show, to explain his presence in the match (no Nosawa, who was the champion) and possibly to explain why Sabu went into the match with rib pain. Sabu favored it thru the match and even the Super Luchas recap notes he didn’t wrestle as well as he once did (though he tried), but Sabu did win the match and the title.

Both other titles matches had the champions retaining. Crazy pinned Joe Lider. Juvi turned up to celebrate with Super Crazy, and of course immediately turned on him to set up a future match. The battle of the Sadicos ended with the refs losing control of the match.

CMLL

CMLL (SUN) 10/31 Arena Coliseo [CMLL]
1) Disturbio & MortizCamaleón & Robin
2) Bam Bam, Eléctrico, Último DragoncitoPequeño Olímpico, Pequeño Warrior, Pierrothito
3) Dark Angel, Goya Kong, Luna MágicaLa Comandante, La Seductora, Mima Shimoda
4) Shigeo Okumura, Taichi, YoshihashiMáximo, Toscano, Valiente
5) Blue Panther, Brazo de Plata, Hijo del FantasmaAtlantis, Mephisto, Rey Bucanero

Porky was both a vampire and Charly Manson! He also hurt Atlantis’ ribs on a splash, and Atlantis eventually was strechered out.

Taichi pinned Maximo clean with the Black Mephisto, then talked trash to Maximo. Unfortuantly, he did this in Japanese, but eventually everyone worked it out. Maximo offered a hair vs hair rematch.

Goya Kong dressed as a witch and got the win in her match.

Electrico feuded with Olimpico and Warrior in his match.

CMLL in NJPW: 10/31
– Giant Bernard, Karl Anderson, Prince Devitt & Ryusuke Taguchi b Terrible, Texano Jr., Jado & Gedo [Anderson on Gedo]
– Manabu Nakanishi, Strong Man & Koji Kanemoto beat Yuji Nagata, Wataru Inoue & Jushin Liger [Nakanishi on Liger]

LuchaWorld has Alfredo talking about his trip to Lucha Va Voom, and KrisZ’s news update.

Cesar is in a run of naming things or at least wondering about names for them: CMLL World Trios champsCamaleon’s trademark submission (Camaleon has a trademark?), Apolo Estrada Jr.’s stunner variant, Metalico’s wheelbarow driver, and Mortiz & Disturbio’s double team submission. I think I’ve seen Apolo’s stunners on the US indies (which means in Japanese move), but at least they’re doing new stuff. I’m all for names sticking to moves.

IWL and AAA TV tomorrow.

Castle of Terror! Centuaro, Comando Negro, Alan Extreme and Arlequin Negro are likely suspects. 911 has a chance too – they keep debuting new Oficials, which usually means a replacement is about to be needed.

IWRG (SUN) 11/07 Arena Naucalpan

2) Dinamic Black & Eragon vs Gemelo Fantastico I & Gemelo Fantastico II

1) Metálico & SenseiApolo Estrada Jr. & Zayco
2) Loco Max, Nitro, SkándaloÁngel Azteca Jr., Pegasso, Rey Cometa
3) Euforia, Pólvora, VirusÁngel de Oro, Delta, Diamante
4) AmapolaTiffany [CMLL WOMEN]

6) La Máscara, La Sombra, Máscara DoradaEl Alebrije, Olímpico, Psicosis [CMLL TRIOS]

Clean wins for the champions in both matches. Psicosis lost to Mascara’s campana in the third fall of the main event, while Amapola beat Tiffany with the backcracker. The first couple of falls of the women’s title match had a bit controversey, causing Mima Shimoda & Estrellita (Amapola & Tiffany’s seconds) to get thrown out.

Mascara was solicting for names for his team on Ras de Lona. I guess they’re not a dream team.

Bad night for injuries. Pegasso did an Asai Moonsault into an armdrag and landed in the hospital. He hurt his right knee on the landing. Angel de Oro hurt a toe on a moonsault to the floor. Both injuries basically gave the rudos the win.

Dragon Rojo fouled Mistico for the DQ in the semimain. Metalico replaced Astro Boy.

Now that she’s no longer teaming with the Invasors, Ras de Lona had an interview with Marcela explaining why she was teaming with the Invasors. Timely! Also, Atlantis played foosball and they had a 10 second skit with Mistico, Monito, Perico and Cuije promoting the Halloween shows.

AAA in NOAH
10/30: KENTA & Atsushi Aoki b Jack Evans & Extreme Tiger [semfinal, KENTA Got 2 Sleep Jack]
Jack & Tiger won the “Techinque Prize”! Really.

Strong Man’s team is stuck at 2 points, but so is every team in their block.

This resembles the previous listed card for IWRG in that they were both lucha libre shows featuring luchadors. Otherwise, not much the same. Main event is a twenty man match, where the eliminated grab straps and become lumberjacks. Amusing for the Arlequins to return the show before the Castle of Terror.

CMLL (FRI) 11/05 Arena Mexico
1) Metálico & Trueno vs Artillero & Súper Comando
2) Astral, Bam Bam, Eléctrico vs Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Violencia, Pequeño Warrior

6) La Máscara, La Sombra, Místico vs Atlantis, Dragón Rojo Jr., Último Guerrero

CMLL vs Invasors cibernetico. Wonder if they’re setting up some new version of that. Invasors desperately need a win, or a new reason to exist.

Main event is focused on the Dragon Rojo/Mistico thing.

Tuesday’s Arena Mexico show has been moved to Arena Coliseo. Maybe because it’s an earlier start time? Maybe because they’re just random?

The lineup for 11/07 AAA says the Apaches opponents are Oyuki & Kaguya. Whoever they might be.

2010 AAA TV Chart
Projected Air Date (#963)
Mexico: 11/14
US: 11/27

Here’s the problem. 5 matches = 1 taping, but they  would have to turn around the next taping in Thursday. Maybe they’ll use one of the unaired matches from Heroes Inmortales? They’ll figure it out.

No basketball hoop this time :(

This seems to be a show to have a show. Maybe it’ll be more intriguing after Sunday? Seems like they’re waiting to actually put the new Bizarros in TV, but this main event will be full of Cibernetico bitterness.

Minis return the TV. Tiger & Jack return from Japan. Aerostar returns from oblivion.

The women probably are the same women as Sunday and the same women we think they are, but who knows.
