Dia de la Muertos, CMLL/NJPW

Today is the special Dia de la Muertos show in Arena Coliseo. Main event is Mr. Aguila & Hector Garza vs Ultimo Guerrero & Atlantis for the tag team titles. The Invasors can’t possibly lose this one too. Pegasso is still listed on the card, though it sounded like he missed his shows in Monterrey over the weekend after getting hurt on Friday.

CMLL in NJPW: 11/02
Manabu Nakanishi, Strong Man, Koji Kanemoto & Tiger Mask b Giant Bernard, Karl Anderson, Prince Devitt & Ryusuke Taguchi [Strong Man Argentine backbreaker Anderson]
G1 Block B: Terrible & Texano b NO LIMIT [Tornado Texano on Yujiro]

Tie breaker win! Now they got to make sure never to give Naito and Yujiro a rematch to be safe. I wonder if Terrible will ever get to win a match?

Hijos del Averno now have 4 points, 2-2. Almost every team in their block has 4 points, and almost every team has just 1 match left. Tanahashi & Tajiri, the only team with 2 matches left, are the last opponets for the CMLL duo.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.

Black Terry Jr. has video highlights of the X-LAW show.

Late Edit:

This went up late enough that I can note Dragon Rojo will replace Atlantis tonight in the tag title match. They tried to sneak by without the table, but that can’t be allowed.

Mexico: 11/06 – starts this week
US: does not appear to be carried here

Last year’s tournament was based around a points format. This year, it’s a parajes increíbles tournament. Presumably the winning team will face off for the giant glass fist. I don’t usually like these type of matches, because it’s one (or two) guys taking about 10 minutes to figure out they never wanted to have this match in the first place, but the amusing teams makes it work for me (at least on paper.) Chessman and Jack? Mad genius. I hope we get Dr. Wagner & Zorro having conversations: Zorro could talk about his prophecies and Wagner would not stoically, Wagner would talk about WagnerMania and Zorro would be a total believer.

Not much on the matches. Cibernetico is still not friends with Parka. No mention of how many people are in the tournament, how big the tournament is, or even if it’s a single elimination tournament.

A four match show seems a bit short. Maybe there was a bonus dark match?

Next taping for this is 11/15, next regular AAA taping is 11/08.

Update: AAA posted their results, with direct finishes.

  • Jack pinned Pimpi (with a “360 degree plancha” – probably should be 630)
  • Hernandez beat Parka
  • Electroshock got Tiger with the Rey de Reyes (Electro beating a cruiserweight shocker)
  • Zorro pinned Alan

  • 10/31 CMLL GDL – I feel so dumb; for at least the last month, the file name has had Sunday’s date. We can’t find this program on Saturday, because they moved it to Sunday. Dunno what time.

Over on En El Ring
