IWRG (SUN) 10/17 Arena Nauclpan [Al Filo del RingThe Gladiatores]
1) Alan ExtremeKeshin Black
2) Aeroman & TonatiuhEpidemia & Nemesis
3) Comando Negro, El Hijo del Diablo, Magia NegraCentauro, Chico Che, Freelance

5) Alan Stone, Billy Boy, Eterno, Gemelo Fantastico I, Gemelo Fantastico II, KonnanDr. Cerebro, Oficial 911, Tinieblas Jr.

Of course Konnan didn’t wrestle in the main event. Instead, he revealed the Gemelos were actually from France (actually Toluca) and Eterno was from the US (actually Ecatepec) and they wrestled on his team in the main event – and Oficial 911 turned too.

DQ in semimain was for Oficial run-ins, including perhaps a new one. Samot replaced Marshall (maybe related to there beign a new Oficial) and Jack replaced Veneno. Christian is said to look untrained and having little to offer but his muscular look. I wonder which of AAA or CMLL will sign him.

Hijo del Diablo pulled some trick to win the tercera, the best match of the night. Chico Che replaced Aeroman, who ended up in the second match. Couldn’t find a picture of him.

Mr. Aguila fouled Super Porky for the DQ.

Luchas2000, via DJ Spectro, says Black Abyss has left AAA and is headed to CMLL. It’ll be interesting if another ex-AAA guy keeps his gimmick in CMLL. The magazine has an interview with Psicosis and Black Abyss, so it’s not like Black Abyss is just wishing he’s headed to CMLL all on his own. Psicosis III and Histeria III are still turning up on house show lineups, but not really on TV.

Joystiq posted a review of AAA’s game, rating it 2 out of 5.

Lucha Libre is just a shallow knock-off, with limited move-sets, nonsensical story modes, and no gimmicks beyond handicap matches and hair vs. mask grudge matches.

Joystiq appears to be the only major sites to have reviewed the game. There’s another review at Gaming Ahead.

Tiger & Jack in NOAH results via Puroresu Representin’
10/18: Kotaro Suzuki & Go Shiozaki b Extreme Tiger & Jack Evans [Go pins Tiger] – not part of the tournament
10/19: Extreme Tiger TLDRAW Ricky Marvin [15 minute limit]
10/19: Jack Evans b Satoshi Kajiwara & Taiji Ishimori [Jack pin Kajiwara]

You aren’t really in NOAH until you’ve had a pointless time limit draw. Hooray for Extreme Tiger.

CMLL (TUE) 10/19 Arena Aficion

2) Ares, Mascara Oriental, Nino de Fuego vs Antar, Cronos, Zairus

4) Brazo de Plata & Máximo vs Terrible & Texano Jr.
5) Volador Jr. vs La Máscara

They’re billing the main event as for the bicentennial cup, but I don’t think that’s meant to be defended. It’s a rematch of the final.

Tomorrow! Quick turn around.

This appears to be the first time Ozz has teamed up with Parka, though Path Finder and Rey Dragon teamed up with Parka in ’99. Cuervo teamed up with Parka way back in 1997. AAA writes about this team up.

The semimain was supposed to hype Electroshock/Heavy Metal, but Octagon continues to replace Metal. Maybe it’ll be Cibernetico & Octagon issues.

Tercera is non-title, though AAA wonders if 187 might earn a title shot.

If Alissa was the one on the follow up show, why didn’t they give her the pinfall? Too many questions.

Another AAA post says Tito Santana returns in a trios opener, but it’s only listed as a pairs on their site. Dunno.

The big angle on the night is Cibernetico’s anger with AAA. Between the 2nd and 3rd matches, Cibernetico came to the ring to complaining about Octagon and Parka (mistakenly) believing him to be the person who attacked Octagon. Cibernetico said the only person he was happy with was Mesias, since he had some trust in Cibernetico and didn’t get sucked by Konnan’s mind games.

Octagon replaced Heavy Metal in the main event. Metal posted a message (and photo) on his facebook of a foot injury. He’s off from tomorrow’s show, obviously. Octagon was still hurting from the attack. Rudos won the match with Hernandez beating Parka. The evil motorcycle driver from the attack and Heroes Inmortales appeared again and got involved, and Parka & Octagon were beat up. Cibernetico and Bizarro Tabu made the save, but refused to shake hands with Octagon & Park.

Earlier in the day, AAA noted an angle from this past week’s TV show: Octagon says the motorcycle driver was not actually his attacker, but a distraction from the guy who really attacked him. We don’t know who that is, but that’s two mystery people to look for.

Third/fourth matches were joined together. La Secta continue their new found success. Super Crazy missed the third of his triple moonsaults on Ozz, and Ozz got him with what I think was La Darketa. Crazy was strechered out.

In the next match, the Stones upset La Hermindad with a little help from Tiger Cota. 187 cleared house on the Militia after the match, Konnan and Los Perros ran into help the Militia, and La Secta ran in for the save. That is actually how you elevate some people, so I’m very confused to see it actually happen (and waiting for the football to be pulled away.)

Militia took the segunda when Super Fly suffered an injury and Laredo was isolated. Super Fly’s injury is a bit suspicious – he kept drawing the referee’s attention away from the match by being super dramatic, which just happened to allow the rudos to double team Laredo time and time again.

The two mystery luchadoras were Alissa Flash and Kitzune Nanoko (the joshi wrestler recently in IWRG who wasn’t Biba Kasai – do we know if it’s “Nanoko” or “Nanuko”?) Kitzune beat Esther with a Shining Wizard.

10/16 lucha videos

I taped everything between 4 AM and 4 PM on Teleformula and CMLL never aired. We’d previously checked everything from 4PM onto midnight, so I have no idea. Their schedule is accurate except that hour, so clearly something is specifically up with that program. Yet it’s still on the website.

LATV was another rerun. ACM did air, but my TiVo didn’t record it for some reason.
