Volador had a new look. His mask changed alliances from Venom to Batman. CMLL recap also pushed Volador’s new rudo moves. He got the pin on Sombra here.
The Generation of 2011 was introduced before the main event. No names mentioned, but it should be the same guys from Ras de Lona.
Fantasma got Mephisto with a German suplex to win the semimain, then challenged him to a NWA Welterweight Championship. Mephisto agreed.
Mini tecnicos won in straight falls. Pequeno Olimpico was strechered out.
Guadalajara’s Festival Mundial de Lucha Libre, held lately in December, will take place this March 5th and 6th. They say they’ll have AAA, CMLL and indy wrestlers. It’s usually 3 days long, so I guess it’ll be a packed 2 days. If you can’t get to Mexico City for the Lucha Libre Expo, this is pretty decent alternative.
Highlight of Ras de Lona was week three of the best of, trying to cram everything in to get it done (which led to odd stuff like Ayumi getting as much time as the anniversary show.) Pretty likely they taped it weeks ago, because they had footage of the opening battle royal of Copa Jr. but no mention of a winner and didn’t seem to know who won the Dorada replacement poll either.
- Fabi Apache and Sexi Star exchange words leading up to their tag match on the 01/15 taping. AAA’s going to have quotes from everyone on the card by the time this taping happens.
- IWL luchadors gave out masks, shirts and magazines to needy children yesterday.
- More luchadors visiting children in the hospital yesterday.
- Amo La Lucha Libre has a two part interview with Hijo del Santo
- Promteo de Lucha Libre argues La Milicia is just another in the long line of military gimmicks, not something related to drug cartels. He’s probably right.
- Cesar talks about the Psicosis/La Mascara rivalry.
- 10 luchadors from Titanes en el Ring won a court case against the Karadagian family which will now restore their pensions. It’s been a 28 year court battle.
CMLL (FRI) 01/14 Arena Mexico
1) Rayo Tapatío I & Rayo Tapatío II vs Escorpion & Hijo del Signo
2) Bam Bam, Eléctrico, Mascarita Dorada vs Pequeño Universo 2000, Pequeño Warrior, Pierrothito
3) Dark Angel vs Princesa Sujei [lightning]
4) Máscara Dorada, Rush, Toscano vs Averno, Terrible, Texano
5) Mephisto vs Hijo del Fantasma [NWA WELTER]
6) Máximo, Místico, Super Porky vs Felino, Negro Casas, Rey Bucanero
Brazos & Mistico is the main event, but the title match is the most interesting. Not totally sure who’s going to win.
The card format returns to the default for 2010, six matches with a lightning match. Dark Angel & Princesa Sujei last met in a lightning match in June 2009, Sarah winning that one.
