Rudos – including Dragon Rojo and not Bucanero – took the 1st and the 3rd. Last was with triple Atlantidas. Rudos challenged for the trios titles, Dorada accepted on behalf of his team, and the match will happen next week.
I still am surprised about Delta & Diamante making the final. Maybe the Cats are too young, but Delta & Diamante aren’t steady themselves. The best tecnico team in this tournament lost in the quarterfinals to Euforia & Nosferatu. This sets up two straight tecnico vs tecnico matches – Angels vs Delta/Diamante next week (both of which are inconsistent on their own), and the winner of that versus Stuka/Fuego next week.
Puma accidentally hit Tiger to cause their loss. They teased a fight but made up afterwards. This is a reoccuring pattern with them, but that’s also something rudos do a lot.
Goya Kong replaced Estrella Magica, which seems totally unfair. Tecnicas won, though that was more for the rudas getting an excessive violence DQ on Luna in the second after losing the first. Luna challenged Princesa Blanca to a singles match, which is what we’ve been expecting for a while. Expected it to be for Blanca’s title, but it’ll instead be hair versus hair. Blanca did accept, Luna is totally doomed, but there was no date put to this one. Maybe two weeks?
The opener did not set up any other match at all. Slackers.
SuperLuchas #385 has Dos Caras & Alberto Del Rio as well as Adios Alex Koslov on the cover. Inside, there’s the first real interview with Mistico since Perro Aguayo Jr. said claimed he had told people he was jumping. Mistico says he did not not talk to AAA, did not talk to Perros del Mal, had no plans of going to Heroes Inmortales, and has no idea why people were saying different. He said he’d be working for anyone if it made sense and didn’t want to say anything bad about anyone, but had no plans of leaving of CMLL right now. (As usual, the truth’s probably somewhere in between all these stories.) Mistico pointed out that even though he gets booed, there’s a lot more people showing up at Arena Mexico when he’s there.
CMLL’s current website listing for Friday’s show has Marcela in on the Invasors side for Seuxis. That doesn’t make sense as a team and isn’t explained. Elsewhere, Mistico is listed in Mascara Dorada’s spot in the semimain, but CMLL.com has not made that change (yet.) In both switched, it’s a more important/tenured getting a spot on an important ($$?) show, right after people were complaining about their payoffs.
There was a contract signing for the Psycho Circus vs Los Payasos match. That seems odd, because nothing is on the line, but it turns out they’re running with special rules: 2 out of 3 falls, no captains, two people must be pinned to win any fall, and a 30 minute time limit. I think that last one might come into play. They’re trying to hype this show up with a tournament underneath with the likes of Super Muneco.
Mil Mascaras, Nosawa, and Vampiro beat CIMA, Abdullah the Butcher, and Arkangel de la Muerte (Nosawa casita Arkangel) on Nosawa’s 15th anniversary show. That match actually happened.
LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.
- There was a Toryumon Mexico show today, and we found out the usual way: a lot of amusing pictures on Black Terry Jr.’s flickr feed. Looks like the main was Dragon vs Rey Bucanero, with Black Tiger V getting involved. Semimain is up on YouTube.
- Luchas 2000 #542 has the Carases, the new Light Heavyweight champ, and Casas/Manson.
- Rey Misterio Jr. hung out with Damian 666 and Dorian Roldan while in Mexico.
- Estrellas del Ring has an interview with Cien Caras Jr. and Espectro de Ultratumba II, who claims to be the nephew of Antonio Pena. I believe that one as much as the other guy is really Cien Caras’ son, but if it was true, it’s a good gimmick and all, but I think another nephew made out a little better with his inheritance.
- El Siglo de Torreon has about Sombra’s family (more on the previous generation), who run the gym that trained Sombra & Dragon Rojo. There are a lot of wrestlers in the family.
- AAA says Gronda II has been working a nutritionist and personal trainer of late. I’m sure that guy knows what to ingest to give yourself a certain look.
- NGX sent out a video challenge to DTU for a match on 11/13 in a battle of the hardcore promotions.
- In Xalapa, there was giant park show to benefit victims of the recent hurricane. Not big names, but a ton of people.
- Vanguardia writes about a lucha libre show for inmates.
- Next Friday’s Tijuana card, with the LA Parks, is a benefit show for a center for the blind.
- Cesar notes Scorpio’s rapid hair growth (totally forgot he ‘lost’ it to Oriental) and Arturo Rivera calling moves “frankenstein!” on TV this week. I think Cesar is only the fourth person the internet to admit to watching AAA. Need a couple more to form our support group.
- Segunda Caida has two more Black Terry Jr. matches to review.
- Croncias y Leyendas looks back at As Charro’s Arena Mexico debut and Canek vs Kokina & Gigante Warrior.
IWRG (THU) 10/14 Arena Naucalpan
1) Dinamic Black vs Alan Extreme
2) Gemelo Fantastico I & Gemelo Fantastico II vs Carta Brava Jr. & Magia Negra
3) Black Terry, Cerebro Negro, Dr. Cerebro vs Bombero Infernal, Maldito Jr., Samot
4) Freelance, Trauma I, Veneno vs Avisman, El Hijo del Diablo, Último Gladiador
5) Hijo del Cien Caras, Mari Apache, Mascarita Divina, Pasion Kristal vs Biba Kasai, Mini Abismo Negro, Monster Clown, Yuriko
Kasai is one of the Japanese women who were on the 09/30 show (where results never turned up?) and is apparently still around. Trauma I and Ultimo Gladiador’s feud appears ongoing.
PROLLM (SUN) 10/17 Coliseo Coacalco
1) Albatros, Aramís, Drigger, Predator vs Marduk, Niño de Fuego, Rey Dinámico, Sepulcro Jr.
2) Wotam vs Epidemia, Black Jaguar, Impulso
3) Mr. Potro vs Judas el Traidor [mask, hair]
4) Axel, Huracan Ramirez Jr., Magnifico, Máscara Sagrada vs Fuerza Guerrera, Juventud Guerrera, Trauma I, Trauma II
5) Justiciero vs Cyborg [hair]
The weekly Coacalco show usually goes unmentioned, but this seems like a bigger than usual one.
CMLL (SUN) 10/17 Arena Coliseo
1) Horus & Metálico vs Artillero & Súper Comando
2) Ángel Azteca Jr., Pegasso, Rey Cometa vs Cancerbero, Demus 3:16, Raziel
3) Hijo del Fantasma, Metro, Shocker vs Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas, Volador Jr.
4) Ángel de Oro & Ángel de Plata vs Delta & Diamante [Arena Coliseo TAG, final]
5) La Máscara, La Sombra, Máscara Dorada vs Atlantis, Dragón Rojo Jr., Último Guerrero [CMLL TAG]
Early card listing had Rey Bucanero in Dragon Rojo’s place, but I’m guessing the cage based on the lineups. CMLL originally announced this show would be in Arena Mexico.
CMLL (SUN) 10/17 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Thunder Boy vs Cerveruz
2) Astaroth & Idolo vs Infierno & León Blanco
3) Leo & Metal Blanco vs Mr. Trueno & Ráfaga
4) Gallo, Sagrado, Valiente vs Ephesto, Escorpion, Euforia
5) Brazo de Plata, Máximo, Místico vs Mr. Águila, Olímpico, Texano Jr.
Fuerza E! Escorpion gets to travel to Guadalajara, cool for him. I’m pretty sure I could call every spot in the main event before it happens.
