Averno vs Mephisto, Octagon attacker revealed, IWRG

CMLL (SUN) 11/28 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [Fuego en el Ring]
1) Virgo b Thunder Boy
2) Meteoro, Pequeño Halcón, Último Dragoncito b Pequeño Olímpico, Pequeño Universo 2000, Pierrothito
3) Princesa Blanca, Princesa Sujei, Zeuxis b Goya Kong, Lluvia, Silueta
4) Blue Panther, Brazo de Plata, Valiente b Ephesto, Ráfaga, Texano
5) Averno & Místico b Mephisto & Shocker [Relevos Increíbles]

Special main event, and a chance for Mistico to pull rudo/horn gear out from his closet. The expectation was Averno & Mephisto would just end up turning on their partners. Instead, they fought during the match and were challenging each other to a super libre match after. Mistico’s team took it with a foul on Mephisto.

Rafaga replaced Hector Garza. Goya Kong accidentally splashed Silueta to cause the loss for her team. Halcon was feuding with Pierrothito here. Amazing he happened to already be booked for shows again even before he won the bodybuilding contest.

On this week’s AAA TV, a pre-taped vignette revealed (one of) Octagon’s attackers. Here’s the segment.

They did get it done before Guerra de Titanes. Not sure why it was a pre-tape in Arena Naucalpan and not in front of the crowd, but at least it didn’t happen at the press conference.

CMLL says the next Sunday (DF) Fan Appreciation will be on 12/12. Volador vs Sombra will likely main event.

Tickets for Sin Salida run from $52 (MEX, $4) to $478 (MEX, $38)

Amo de Lucha Libre has footage of IWRG’s main event last night, and the debut AND unmasking of Gamos last night in the semimain. Hint: someone’s back in town.

Black Terry Jr. has video of a match I can’t place but appears to be Arena Naucaplan (trainee show?), and has updated his flickr site with a ton of pictures this weekend: shots from the AAA tapings in Leon, Toluca, and Six Flags as well as shows in Arena Lopez Mateos and Gimnasio Latino America (the training gym from the AAA game.)

Hijo de Cien Caras murdered

Ignacio Jimenez, 33 years old and best known as Hijo de Cien Caras, was murdered last night. A woman named Adela Luna, 42 (likely Jimenez’s wife), was also attacked, though reports vary about her status. Jimenez was not actually the son of Cien Caras, but rented that persona from Cien Caras. Jimenez was previously reported as a brother of LA Park and Super Parka.

Hijo del Cien Caras was seen lately as an IWRG wrestler. He also worked for Santo’s Todos x el Todos and other high end indy promotions around Mexico.  Earlier in this decade, he was a regular in CMLL’s Arena Coliseo Guadalajara, though he seems to have left there around the same time his brother also left CMLL. Hijo del Cien Caras most often teamed with Mascara Ano 2000 Jr., and the two were the IWRG Intercontinental Tag Team Champions until losing the belts last Sunday.

Hijo del Cien Caras had also appeared on AAA TV the last few months as part of the ongoing AAA vs IWRG angle, including appearing on TripleMania and challenging for AAA’s tag titles. Cien’s last appearance, from AAA’s last taping in Arena Naucalpan, will air this Sunday in the United States, when he shows up as a group of IWRG wrestlers.

El Universal’s story on the murder says Hijo del Cien Caras and Adela Luna were sitting in a car in front of a house when the killer walked up to the car, said nothing, and shot Caras four times before fleeing. Universal’s story says Luna was unhurt, though other stories on the incident say multiple bodies were identified.

Early reports misreported the deceased as Mascara Ano 2000, which was clearly incorrect based on the age and the name. It was presumed they meant Mascara Ano 2000 Jr., but it actually appears to be his tag team partner.  Cien’s body was identified by the Arena Naucalpan doctor. El Hijo del Santo confirmed the identify on Twitter.


Al Filo del Ring remembers Hijo de Cien Caras.

Noticias MVS says it was a double homicide, likely by someone who knew one of the two. Hijo del Cien Caras is also being called LA Park’s half-brother.

Mi Lucha Libre says he was actually 32.
