Mascara vs Averno, Puebla, Okumura

Samurai TV’s (Japan) website lists Juicio Final 2011 (Mascara vs Averno) as airing on Tuesday night. Those shows eventually end up turning on the usual file sharing sites, though it make take a little bit. It won’t be a December wait.

Porra Fresa fills in some blanks on Monday’s show in Puebla: Asturiano returned from last week’s injury to wrestle, but was stretchered out again at the end of his match. Lestat and Stigma looked good in their matches vs DF wrestlers, but nothing in particular was done with them. Yoshihashi ran from Rush most of their match, which was the worst of the night. The rudos ended up taking every match.

Okumura did a couple of interviews about his title win. To Fuego en el Ring, Okumura admits that he cheated to win, but he did win and now he’s the champion and that’s all that matters to him. Okumura tells MT that he wants hair matches, a title match vs Rush, and then a rematch for the trio titles next. Okumura drops Lyger’s return in both interviews, teasing a return.

DTU’s press conference to show it’s new belt and new t-shirts also included a wrestling show, and a follow up of the Perros del Mal angle on the last show. Halloween, Damian, Bestia and Ek Balam appeared to challenge the DTU guys to future matches (Daga vs Bestia got special note.) No sign of X-Fly here either, so something must really be up with him.

AAA is teasing a Scott Steiner appearance to come. AAA is certainly working under the impression that their fans want to see big heavyweights from TNA. I’m not sure that’s actually true, but that’s the directioon.
