Perros in Tijuana, Atlantis outsmarts Invasors, CMLL > ROH

PdM (SAT) 11/06 Auditorio de Tijuana [KrisZ, Espaldas Planas, The War]
1) Nikki & Miss Jackie b Christina Von Eerie & Jennifer Blake
2) Bestia 666 & X-Fly b Extreme Tiger & Jack Evans
3) Damián 666, Halloween, Konnan b Charly Haas, Super Crazy, Tony Wilson
4) Blue Demon Jr., Booker T, El Mesías b Big Daddy V, Hernandez, Shelton Benjamin

Perro Aguayo’s absence from this show was announced ahead of time. Dr. Wagner’s was not. (Perros del Mal facebook calls him a diva.) He was roundabout replaced by random person Tony Wilson. Super Crazy remembered he was part of Los Perros and turned on Haas to set up the finish in the semimain. Booker pinned Shelton Benjamin in the main event.

Edit: It was Nikki in the opener.

The Espaldas Planas recap is down on the whole show, except for the Tiger match. They say the attendance was around 1,500, while KrisZ has it around 4,000.

There’s video of this show starting here.

high kick/CMLL

CMLL (TUE) 11/09 Arena Mexico [CMLL]
1) Camorra & Zayco b Camaleón & Principe
2) Bronco, Durango Kid, Hooligan b Guerrero Maya Jr., Metálico, Metatrón
3) Ángel Azteca Jr., Fuego, Rush DQ Nosferatu, Pólvora, Virus
4) Brazo de Plata, Metro, Toscano b Misterioso II, Texano, Vangelis
5) Atlantis, Averno, Ephesto b Charly Manson, El Alebrije, Psicosis

Atlantis took the win on Psicosis in the main event with a handful of ropes.

Misterioso replaced Terrible. More on that below. Clean tecnico win.

Polvora, perhaps aware his guys were feuding with someone on the tecnico side but not quite clear on which one, fouled Rush for a DQ loss in straight falls. Those two may now be feuding.

Terrible is out three weeks with an ankle injury. He suffered in the NJPW tournament, but didn’t really get it checked on so he wouldn’t miss shows. “My decision was to continue at the expense of anything.” The CMLL press release mentions he and Texano had issues about the ‘light’ drugs Terrible was using to numb the pain. Terrible will be in a walking boot for 3 weeks.

The article also off hand mentions Pegasso will be out 3 weeks with a knee injury. He hasn’t been in the ring since 10/29 (where he was carted off after suffering the injury), but I’m not sure if that two weeks is included in the injury assessment or not.

CMLL in NJPW
11/10: Sombra & Mascara Dorada b Davey Richards & Rocky Romero [Sombra “avalnche-style blockbuster” – looks like a middle rope flipping powerslam? – Romero] – finally, we know who would’ve won in a Sombra/Grey Shadow battle.

Prince Devitt missed the show with an injury. If he’s out for the remainder of the tournament and his team has to forfeit out, then Sombra/Dorada must win tomorrow’s match vs Nosawa & Fujita tomorrow to have  a chance to advance. They’re really going to need that win either way to have a shot, and I think it’s a match they should win.

The real news here is Sombra & Dorada are using neat masks.

top six stories of the last two weeks

1) Rough two weeks for Perro Aguayo Junior: the Perros del Mal show in Cuautitlan was canceled at the last minute, Perrito appeared under the influence on the Tlalnepantla TV taping, and he underwent knee surgery. The knee surgery is surely legitimate, but it’s also a pretty easy cover story for his recent behavior.

2) Rough two weeks for the Invasors: lost title matches for the Women’s and Tag Titles, and lost the tag team titles to Dragon Rojo & Ultimo Guerrero. Mr. Aguila won a cibernetico, but only after it was clear he should’ve been given the loss and was the lesser men. It’s inconceivable any of them will be main eventing a major show. At least one that hopes to draw.

3) Good week for Cibernetico. Despite not actually winning, he assembled four Bizarros: Taboo, Scoria, Amadeus, and Nygma. At some point, they may actually even have a match (right after the Skull Mask guy.)

4) Lucha Libre USA announced an actual season 2, with taping starting on 12/12 and airing still TBD.

5) Lucha Libre Premier announced an actual season 2. They’re actually airing already.

6) Zorro beat Nicho for his hair in a non-TV match.
