DTU (SAT) 11/13 Arena Lopez Mateos [Mi Lucha Libre]
1) Ciclope b Electroboy
2) Chika Tormenta, Ludark Shaitan, Sexy Lady b Ashley, Lolita,Megan
3) Bestia 666 & Dinamic Black b Tacubo & Zumbi
4) Drastik Boy & Flamita b Eterno & Hormiga [Alto Rendimiento]
5) Octagoncito & Paranoiko b Mini Chessman & Sick Boy
6) Dance Boy & Violento Jack b Erck Snake & Extreme Dragon
7) Aero Boy, Crazy Boy, Joe Lider b Damián 666, Kaientai, Lord Byron
Aero beat Kaientai, so DTU got the win back over NGX on ‘home turf’. Octagoncito & Mini Chessman were surprise participants (and I may have screwed up the teams there.) Joe Lider and Zumbi are still running into each other’s matches and may soon have one of their own. Drastik Boy & Flamita move on to the tournament final next DTU show, while Eterno & Hormiga have an apuesta match on that show. Eterno has been turning up in the ‘upper level’ indy groups this year, continually feuding with Daga, but he’s got no hair and Hormiga has a mask, so…
CMLL (SAT) 11/13 Arena Neza [The Gladiatores]
1) Puma King & Tiger Kid b Sensei & Starman
2) Bam Bam, Eléctrico, Último Dragoncito b Pequeño Olímpico, Pequeño Warrior, Pierrothito
3) Coco Blanco, Hombre Bala Jr., Neza Kid b Carta Brava, Dralion, Hermano Muerte III
4) Ángel de Oro, Ángel de Plata, Delta b Dr. X, Loco Max, Skándalo
5) Felino, Negro Casas, Rey Bucanero b Charly Manson, El Alebrije, Histeria
6) Mr. Águila, Olímpico, Psicosis b Atlantis, Dragón Rojo Jr., Último Guerrero
Notable because Olimpico & Psicosis beat Dragon Rojo & Ultimo Guerrero in the main event, then appeared to set up a tag title match for 11/28 here. Also, Loco Max got the Tuareg involved in the ongoing Neza Kid/Muerte III feud with a post match attack, then took Angel de Oro’s mask after their loss in the tercera. Sounds like another multiman match.
CMLL (SUN) 11/14 Arena Mexico [CMLL, Cesar]
1) Bengala, Leono, Tigre Blanco b Apocalipsis, Artillero, Súper Comando
2) Arkángel de la Muerte, Nitro, Skándalo b Ángel Azteca Jr., Ángel de Plata, Fabián el Gitano
3) Euforia, Sangre Azteca, Shigeo Okumura b Delta, Diamante, Fuego
4) Ephesto, Felino, Negro Casas b Hijo del Fantasma, Toscano, Valiente
5) Héctor Garza, Taichi, Volador Jr. b Brazo de Plata, Máximo, Místico
I don’t think anything of note happened here. Sangre won in his return. Hijo del Fantasma went from possibly being in a title match to losing to Negro Casas via surprise casita. Garza & Taichi pinned Porky & Maximo clean in the main event.
Electroshock is not joining La Sociedad. And I think the Maniacos are split?
Rob write about CMLL weekend TV and has his take on Why The Invasors Failed. I’m still sticking with “everyone lost when it counted, except if Tirantes was ref, which told the CMLL fans that they Invasors were bad.”
The Gladaitores has luchadors talking about Eddie Guerrero, five years after his passing.
- El Hijo del Santo gave a talk about working hard for your dream. This is very true: Hijo del Santo dreamed very hard that he would one day be the son of a legendary luchador and, on the day he was born, it came true! Santo also talked about leadership but I’m limiting myself to one joke per bullet point.
- Missed writing about Santo’s Record column: usually bit about WWE is the enemy, but the real enemy are the evil foreigners who’ve come to Mexico to corrupt lucha libre. How dare he talk about Seuxis that way! Anyway, Santo picks 24 wrestlers to fight WWE – not sure as if they’d form a promotion or actually get into a brawl – and the list is generally good, but: Hijo del Solitario makes the list. Mistico does not make the list. That it’s Sunday and no one’s noticed this probably says a lot about how many people are actually reading Santo’s record column, but still.
- Apparently there are going to be Lucha Libre USA action figures.
- Cesar suggests moving all the foreign women to the ruda side to help the Invasors. If they’re about to give up on the male Invasors, and it sure feels like they already have, I’m not sure they should bother. He also points to Stuka’s unnamed submission, names Hooligan’s new move, and reveals the name of Zayco’s finish! It’s a happy day when I find out the name of Zayco’s finishing maneuver.
- Croncias Y Leyendas looks back at Perro Aguayo beating El Santo and La Fiera vs Super Astro
- SuperLuchas #390 has extensive coverage of Mascara Dorada & Sombra in Japan.
- Lucha 2000s #546 has various CMLL storylines and Illegal’s debut.
IWL (SUN) 11/21 Deportivo Jose Maria Morelos, Pavon, Colonia Pensil, Mexico
1) Golden vs Ojo Diabólico Jr.
2) Dance Boy, Lobo Metálico, Low Rider vs Black Fire, Naruto, Tribal
3) Fantasma de la Ópera vs Cerebro Negro
4) Fishman Jr. & Hijo del Médico Asesino vs Pesadilla & Ragde
5) Daga vs Eterno [IWL INTERNET]
6) Heddi Karaoui & Villano III vs Durango Kid & Histeria II
Durango Kid & Histeria is a team up of brothers who never get to team up – I don’t have a tag match with them in the database, but they surely must’ve in the Pista Arena Revolucion days – but CMLL’s beeen pretty regularly pulling their guys from these shows, which make me wonder why IWL even tried.
CMLL (SUN) 11/21 Arena Coliseo
1) Rayo Tapatío I & Rayo Tapatío II vs Cholo & Semental
2) Leono, Metálico, Trueno vs Demus 3:16, Escorpion, Puma King
3) Ángel Azteca Jr., Rey Cometa, Starman vs Durango Kid, Hooligan, Nitro
4) Fuego, Máximo, Toscano vs Pólvora, Shigeo Okumura, Yoshihashi
5) La Sombra, Máscara Dorada, Místico vs Dragón Rojo Jr., Último Guerrero, Volador Jr.
Also, Durango Kid is booked over here too. Demus being in the segunda and Yoshihashi in the semimain is blatant trolling.
IWRG (SUN) 11/21 Arena Naucalpan
1) Dinamic Black & Jack vs Carta Brava Jr. & King Drako
2) Brazo Metalico, Eragon, Gran Master vs Comando Negro, Guerrero Negro, Magia Negra
3) Dr. Cerebro, El Hijo de Aníbal, Veneno vs El Hijo del Diablo, Fuerza Guerrera, Hijo de Pierroth (IWRG)
Main event still to be announced, and I have no idea who the Gran Master is. Let’s just ignore that I posted this.
