IWL (SAT) 10/15/2011 Unidad Deportiva Javier Rojo Gomez, Tulancingo, Hidalgo [IWL]
1) Rocky Lobo b ArticuzLancelot
No Concord, so a tag match became a triangle.

Centinela replaced Marvin, El Afil replaced El Abuelito.
3) Latin Star b KansukeMaravilla Negra

9) Davey Richards b Daga [ROH HEAVY]
Davey keeps the title. Originally appeared to be announced as the main evnet.
10) Super Crazy b Necro Butcher

Does not look like this show drew well either.

The night prior in IWL, Necro Butcher’s trio beat Los Porros; there’s video of that match here. BT Jr. has video of the Super Crazy vs Joe Lider match and a Kansuske/Tribal/Latin Star triangle match from that show. Daga also lost on that show, to Juvi in a singles match, and IWL’s announced Daga has vacated their Junior Heavyweight Championship in response to these loses.

7) Negro Navarro b Nicho el Millionario
Nicho missed the legdrop, Negro hit him with a lamp and submitted him.

Black Terry Jr. has video of that match, and the state Nicho was in after the match.

CMLL (SUN) 10/16/2011 Arena Mexico [CMLL, La CatedralRecord]
1) Cholo & Ramstein b Camaleón & Freesbe
This is the most opening match possible.
2) Hombre Bala Jr., Höruz, Leono b Apocalipsis, Disturbio, Inquisidor
Tecnicos took 1/3. Leono submitted Inquisidor for the win.
3) Dragon Lee, Metal Blanco, Sagrado b Cancerbero, Nosferatu, Raziel
Sagrado replaced Rey Cometa. Dr. X, who had been gone for three months, was listed on the rudo side originally (even though there was no chance he was ever working). Raziel replaced him on the card after Dr. X’s death, and CMLL never actually addressed the situation.
4) Black Warrior, Blue Panther, Guerrero Maya Jr. b Ephesto, Mephisto, Rey Escorpion
Warrior beat Ephesto in the first fall, but Mephisto beat Panther, and those were the captains. Guerrero Maya pinned Mephisto with a ‘rana in the third. Warrior and Maya had some problems in the third fall, leading to the tecnicos loss. Warrior again angrily stormed out.
5) Héctor Garza, Jushin Lyger, Shocker DQ Rey Bucanero, Terrible, Texano
Tecnicos took fall 1, then Bucanero fouled Garza for the DQ.
6) Volador Jr. b Atlantis
Volador took 1 & 3, the last with the ref going down and Volador pulling Atlantis’ mask to set up the winning cradle.

Other News

Reports all weekend said many luchadors tried out for WWE during this tour, especially the two days they were in Mexico City. I believe it was Enrique Yniesta who first said there were seven CMLL wrestlers who tried out Sunday, and independent and AAA wrestlers who had tried out Saturday. La Catedral doubles that number, and says 15 CMLL luchadors tried out. Referee Edgar Noriega, who’s also Paco Alonso’s nephew and on the programming committee at last check, was reported by SuperLuchas to be among a few CMLL official sitting in the first rows at Sunday’s SmackDown taping.

edit: Over on Facebook, La Catedral says his post should be taken to mean “15 CMLL luchadors have tried out all time”, and not just today.

On the actual show, Sin Cara Azul (Mistico) defeated Sin Cara Negro for his mask, as was expected. Does not appear they had the former Mystico/Incognito/Hunico announce his name. This show was already 90% (or more) sold out before they announced this match; how many months of 10K shows would CMLL have gotten if they had run the same feud? It was too late by then, but Incognito would’ve been the best possible leader of the Invasors for the shock factor.

WWE also announced Mil Mascaras will be inducted in their Hall of Fame in 2012. The induction ceremony is held the weekend of WrestleMania.


Amapola response to Marcela’s title challenge on Friday: “Once again Marcela, I’ve lost track if you’ve lost 10, 11 or 12 times, but I’m not invincible and miracles do exist, so I will see you next week.” They clearly thought they were going to have the title match next week, but Amapola mocking the number of time they’ve done this match is hilarious.

SuperLuchas #434 has Mil Mascaras & Dr. X. The magazine actually had the news about Mil in the HOF earlier today, which is why you subscribe.

SuperLuchas also says CMLL demanded Dr. X sign a new contract which would’ve allowed them to cut him at any time if he lost his mask. Mexican workers have certain rights to continued employment as long as they’re showing up to work, which came up with the Psicosis/Alebrije/others vs AAA legal situation. It sounds like CMLL was asking Dr. X to give up those rights in exchange for a mask payoff, he refused, and there probably was (is?) an ongoing legal situation. Dr. X being listed for CMLL shows they knew he wasn’t going to be at probably plays in to it – gives CMLL ’cause’ to fire Dr. X for not showing, even though they knew Dr. X was not showing.

Rob has highlights of 10/01/10 CMLL, 10/05/10 CMLL and 04/20/11 AAA.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update and the Ras de Lona from two weeks ago.

Lucha Libre in Japan

AJPW 10/16: 4) Taiyo Kea [O], Kenzo, Kaz Hayashi b Ozz, Cuervo, Masada [X]

La Comandate and Seuxis lost the main event in this weekend’s REINA show. I think Lady Afrodita won the first match in her league tournament.
