CMLL (SAT) 01/01 Plaza de Toros Torreon [El Siglo de Torreon]
4) Black Boy, El Auténtico, Hijo del Soberano b Euforia, Misterioso Jr., Semental
5) Dragón Rojo Jr. & Último Guerrero b La Máscara & Stuka Jr. [CMLL TAG]
Fourth defense for the champions.
Angels del Oro and Plata were supposed to be in the semimain, but were off in Arena Mexico instead. Their replacements won, so hopefully everyone went home happy.
CMLL says Metal Blanco was knocked out for a few moments from Diamante’s 450 splash, but regained consciousness and is okay.
AAA announced the 01/15 Ecatepec main event will be Parka, Jack and Tiger vs Cibernetico, Charly and Scoria.
The Washington Post has a big article about Mexico’s drug problems not being reflected in the lucha libre ring. The mean in terms of characters, because it definitely has affected lucha libre in other ways. CMLL’s Sandra Granados is quoted in the article, and the consensus is lucha libre is too innocent to use such characters, and there may be governmental pressure not to do so.
AAA’s not talked about or to in this article, which is too bad because it probably would give a different perspective. It’s been a while since the Narcosantanicos have been seen on the indies, but what are the Dinamitas actually supposed to be?
Before heading off to Japan, Mascara Dorada told Fuego en el Ring that he was about 80% recovered from his foot injury. He looked about 40% in that Arena Coliseo Monterrey match.

4) Metro, Sagrado, Valiente vs Ephesto, Misterioso Jr., Sangre Azteca
5) La Máscara, Místico, Rotoporky vs Negro Casas, Terrible, Texano
A show. Think they’re setting up a Mistico/Negro Casas match here.
Ephesto should take Sangre aside and explain how much better it is on the rudo side while there’s still time.
