CMLL (FRI) 10/28/2011 Arena Mexico [CMLL, Record]
1) Metálico & Molotov b Disturbio & Hooligan
Metalico submitted a very Halloween looking Hooligan for the win.
2) Ángel Azteca, Ángel de Oro, Pegasso b Arkángel de la Muerte, Loco Max, Skándalo
Skandalo wore a half Dr.X mask. Angel de Oro replaced his injured brother. Tecnicos took 1/3, Oro mecedora on Arkangel to end it.
3) Shigeo Okumura, Virus, Yoshihashi b Dragon Lee, Sangre Azteca, Valiente
Rudos took the last two. Virus shoved Dragon Lee into the ref, with everyone else out of the ring. Lee kicked at Virus, Virus caught it, spun Lee onto the middle rope, and kicked the rope to foul Lee, then got the three count.
4) Marcela b Amapola [CMLL WOMEN]
Moved up a slot on the card. Seconds were Skandalo (who always ends up doing this) and Pegasso. Amapola won the first with a Devil’s Wings, Marcela took the second with an Alejandrina variant, and the third with her Michinoku driver.
5) Blue Panther, Jushin Lyger, Rush DQ Felino, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas
Tecnicos took 1/3. Negro had Panther beat with a cross armbreaker, but would not let go and was DQed for it. Panther needed medical help after the match.
6) Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto b Héctor Garza, La Sombra, Máscara Dorada
Straight falls for the rudos. They jumped Dorada as he entered, beat him up, won the first fall, then Mephisto gave Dorada top rope Devil’s Wings. Challenges were made to set up Dorada defending the CMLL Welterweight Championship next week.
Both Amapola and Ultimo Guerrero’s epic length title runs have ended in the last few months. The longest CMLL World branded title reign now is Ultimo Guerrero & Dragon Rojo’s tag team championship (which probably won’t change hands for a very long time.) The longest reigns of any active championship in CMLL are the Arena Coliseo Tag Team Titles (Stuka & Fuego) and the Mexican National Lightweight Title (Pierrothito), but both those are defended more like once a year. No seems quite sure how many defenses Amapola had – I swear JCR said “26” on Ras de Lona, only for Amapola to say “24” a few minutes later.
Alexis posted video of the Mephisto challenge to Dorada. Did not think that was where they were going.
Ras de Lona announced the CMLL bodybuilding contest for 11/24.
Also, Zacarias and Monito are now feuding over who’s more metrosexual.
They were strongly pushing Mephisto/Mascara Dorada on the show. Blue Panther and Los Casas talked about their feud quite a bit too. Both Stuka & Fuego and Niebla & Negro talked about facing each other in last week’s tag team tournament but did not seem to have any long term issues with each other.
Lucha Libre USA did post the Lizmark Jr. vs Shane Helms match. It’s in HD now, at least.
CMLL’s returning to Oaxaca in November. Atlantis & Ultimo Guerrero attended a press conference to hype up the card, which still included Mascarita Dorada on the card.
LuchaWorld has Alfredo reviewing this week’s AAA TV show, which I might finally get to after this post.
- Cronicas Y Leyendas looks back at Mil/Santo vs Perro/Konnan and Infernales vs Guerreros
- Aerostar likes the idea of bringing back the Abismo Negro character, is confused by Octagon and Parka’s turn.
- AAA links to a Rob video of horror characters, so I will too.
- The Gladiatores talks to El Hijo del Santo about his Todos x el Todos show.
- Pirata Morgan wants to fight Zorro at the AAA/indy show.
- GALLI’s next show is on 11/05
CMLL (FRI) 11/04/2011 Arena Mexico
1) Metálico & Molotov vs Rayo Tapatío I & Rayo Tapatío II
2) Dragon Lee vs Virus [lightning]
3) Ángel de Oro, Blue Panther, Metro vs Negro Casas, Pólvora, Rey Escorpion
4) Felino, Mr. Águila, Volador Jr. vs Rey Bucanero, Terrible, Texano
5) Máscara Dorada vs Mephisto [CMLL WELTER]
6) Atlantis, Jushin Lyger, Shocker vs Dragón Rojo Jr., Mr. Niebla, Último Guerrero
Peste Negra all on the card, all in different matches. Same with the Guerreros. I am guessing the Peste Negra split is because they’re doing two different feuds at once but it’s still awkward. (And I’d make all title matches main events over random trios matches, but you know that by now.) Lightning match is interesting, though might not make TV.
