1) Keshin Black b Tonatiuh
2) Dinamic Black & Freelance b Hammer & Magia Negra
3) Bugambilia del Norte, Miss Gaviota, Pimpinela Escarlata b Avisman, El Hijo del Diablo, Guerrero Negro
4) Cerebro Negro & Dr. Cerebro b Crazy Boy & Joe Lider [cage]
5) Arlequin Negro L Hijo del Cien Caras, El Hijo de Aníbal, Trauma I, Oficial AK47, Comando Negro, Máscara Año 2000 Jr., Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Centauro, Oficial 911, Carta Brava Jr., Alan Extreme [castle of terror, mask, cage]

The cage match went 10 minutes before everyone stated to leave. Alan Extreme, Oficial AK-47, Trauma I, Carta Brava Jr. and Centauro all left in normal fashion. Comando Negro gave Arelquin Negro with a martinete, everyone else in the cage realized Arelquin was out, and they all climbed out of the cage at the same time. They all escaped, and Arelquin Negro lost his mask. He’s Jorge Hernandez Gomez, from Michoacan, 8 years a wrestler.

As everyone notes, this is the third Arlequin to lose his mask in fall IWRG cage matches in three years. Arlequin Amarillo lost his mask to Mascara Ano 2000 Jr. in 2008’s Castle of Terror and Arlequin Rojo lost his mask to Rigo in a September 2009 cage match (losers of cage matches facing off.)

Comando Negro was credited with the win. This is his second apuesta win in a short time. After the match, Pirata Morgan appeared to attack Mascara Ano 2000 Jr. and takes his mask (as well as some fan’s masks.)

Semimain was a cage match too. With the other two out, Crazy Boy tried to put Dr. Cerebro thru a flaming table, but Dr. Cerebro reversed, sent Crazy thru, and escaped for the win.

Main event is scheduled to be Mascara, Sombra, Mistico vs Los Guerreros. Atlantis is still listed in the main event, despite missing the title match on Tuesday with a rib injury. Semimain is a CMLL vs Invasors cibernetico. Invasors probably will get a win, but it seems too late for them.

Perro Aguayo Jr. is off “the War” Perros/independent show in Tijuana this Saturday. The promotion says it’s a knee injury; likely the same sort of knee injury that’s been bedeviling Mr. Niebla. Blue Demon Jr. will take his place.

AAA’s recent list of spot show lineups include a match for Jennifer Blake, who hasn’t been around in a couple months, and reveal someone doesn’t know how to spell “Argenis”.

On his podcast yesterday, Colt Cabana said he was supposed to work the 10/31 IWL show, but the promoter pulled him off the show. The promoter told Colt that he didn’t want to bring in American because another American had just no showed because he was too scared to go to Mexico. (That’d be Scott Summers, who missed the 10/16 show.) It wasn’t clear if he’d eventually be back.

Rob watched CMLL FOX 10/29/10.

Rey Bucanero gets his singles match! Probably won’t be so happy about it. Valiente is the best possible Mascara Dorada fill in, though the title match likely isn’t for another week. Dorada and Sombra should be back on 11/15.
