Mephisto/Mascara, IWRG/DTU, QPPC, LA Park hates everyone

CMLL (TUE) 11/29/2011 Arena Mexico [Estrellas del Ring, Record]
1) Enrique Vera Jr. & Leono b Bobby Zavala & Disturbio
2) Lluvia, Luna Mágica, Marcela b La Comandante, Princesa Blanca, Zeuxis
Luna & Lluvia challenged Comandate & Zeuxis to put up their REINA tag team championship next week. They accepted.
3) Dragon Lee, Rey Cometa, Stuka Jr. b Arkángel de la Muerte, Nitro, Skándalo
Rey Cometa is back!
4) Metro, Sagrado, Valiente b Euforia, Misterioso Jr., Pólvora
Metro took Polvora’s German suplex.
5) Mephisto, Rey Bucanero, Terrible b Ángel de Oro, La Máscara, Rush
Mephisto beat Mascara a DDT, then challenged him to a NWA middleweight title match so he could the title back for the Avernos. Mascara accepted, and Mephisto yanked his mask off.

Remember, Mephisto took the place of Texano. This title match is a sudden change of plans.

I don’t have high (or medium) expectations for a Lluvia & Luna Magica vs Zeuxis & La Comandante, but it’ll be an ideal occasional to change those expectations going forward.

DTU (TUE) 11/29/2011 Arena Naucalpan [Black Terry Jr. (flickr), Estrellas del Ring]
1) Atomic Star & Jhonki b Lanzeloth & Pequeno Cobra
2) Carta Brava, Muerte Infernal, Saruman, Sky Ángel, Triton (IWRG) b Ciclope, Extreme Boy, Miedo Extremo, Radical, Slayer Pack
3) Bugambilia del Norte, Dement Extreme, Kaleth, Lily Fighter b Chica Yeye, Chik Tormenta, Comando Negro, Dinastía
4) Golden Magic b Dinamic Black, Flamita, Rey Latino
Ciclope & Los Masizos got involved, which allowed Golden Magic to beat Flamita.
5) Black Terry DCOR Paranoiko, Onita Santana
Everyone fought outside for the twenty count, and then kept fighting.
6) Demoledor & Hormiga b Alan Extreme & Violento Jack and Araña de Plata & Eterno
Bugambilia del Norte fouled Eterno with a light tube to set up Demoledor’s win win. Somehow, this led to Thursday’s hair match now including Demoledor.
7) Aero Boy & Último Gladiador b Drastik Boy & Joe Lider and Pesadilla & X-Fly
Aero took Drastick Boy’s mask (behind the referee’s back, very concerned about a DQ in DTU) and pinned him for the win.

No one’s been dropped. (So far.) They announced at the start that one woman, one man, and one mini would be signed, but either they’re changing that or shifting people to the minis division. Of the 4 minis listed, 3 are working as full size guys on the minis. Maybe they’ll just have Daga win since they already put him on TV. Not that many more women either.

At the press event for the final, Octagon said he’d have a new rudo outfit for Guerra de Titanes. Which seems to mean he’s actually wrestling on that show. Or whatever it is he does now.

Perros del Mal sent out a press release interview with LA Park. That was very nice of them, since Park spends the interview ripping the Perros del Mal. Park bitterly complains the Perros only include him when they need something from him (noting Konnan does the same), making them all hypocrites and he can’t wait to beat them up for it. Park figures, sooner or later, Perro was going to stab him in the back, because he’s surrounding himself with false people. Park points at Hector Garza & Texano Jr. as being two false people, calling them rats leaving a sinking ship. Park is not fooled by Texano being on his team, because he and Garza are clearly with Perro and can’t be trust. Park does not care who the mystery person is, because the only person really on a luchador’s side is God and has no friends. “I don’t care who who I team with or who I face – if it’s Que Monito or whoever – I’m here to please the people.” LA Park vows to smash the faces of hoodlums and make the fans happy. I really wish there was video of this.

CMLL sent out a press release talking about the long history of Titan and Triton names in CMLL. “These two luchadors had good times in CMLL and their characters were kept on file, just waiting for the right moment to re-emerge.” I see! I’d pay to see see this file of old CMLL gimmicks waiting to be reused. Anyway, that’s as close to ever acknowledging the indy guy as CMLL will ever come. (And I do love the websites who posted about the IWRG Triton now posting this press release without actually remarking on it.) Perhaps, from now on, instead of writing about the scientific facts of where these gimmicks came from, maybe we should just teach the controversy.

Both CMLL and AAA have their 12/16 tickets on sale. Ignoring the ticketmaster charge, CMLL runs from 450 at ringside to 50 for the balcony. AAA is a bit more pricey,600 at ringside to 120 for grandstand seats (at the baseball stadium.)

R de Rudo #338 talks about this with Ray Mendoza, and about CMLL not having any stars. If Ray Mendoza was in charge, he’d bring back Perro Aguayo Jr., Damian, Dr. Wagner, Blue Demon, Hijo del Santo and Texano. I’m not putting him in charge.

AAA says Mascarita Dorada will make his official return to AAA at Guerra de Titanes. He’ll team with Octagoncito and Mascarita Divina to take on Mini Histeria, Mini Chessman and current AAA’s minis champion Mini Psicosis.

Rob has 11/23/10 CMLL matches.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update and Alfredo on the Todo x el Todo show.

Lucha Layer Cake writes about Sin Piedad 2010. Felino & Panther will definitely be better than that main event.



CMLL (SUN) 12/04/2011 Arena Coliseo
1) Bengala & Molotov vs Camorra & Cholo
2) Höruz, Metálico, Tigre Blanco vs Bronco, Hooligan, Puma King
3) Diamante, Fuego, Sangre Azteca vs Shigeo Okumura, Vangelis, Yoshihashi
4) Atlantis, Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr. vs Shocker, Titán, Triton
5) Jushin Lyger, La Sombra, Máscara Dorada vs Dragón Rojo Jr., Rey Escorpion, Último Guerrero

Delta shows up for the big rematch. Looking forward to this feud. Main event is pretty interesting too.

CMLL (MON) 12/05/2011 Arena Puebla
1) Milenium & Stigma vs Fuerza Chicana & Sauron
2) Ángel Azteca Jr., Metálico, Starman vs Apocalipsis, Disturbio, Puma King
3) Lady Apache, Luna Mágica, Marcela vs Amapola, La Comandante, Princesa Sugheit
4) Ángel de Oro, Hijo del Fantasma, Valiente vs Olímpico, Psicosis, Volador Jr.
5) Atlantis, Jushin Lyger, Super Porky vs Averno, Mephisto, Mr. Niebla

They still appear to be setting up a trios title match here, the same time as they’re setting one up in Arena Mexico. I don’t like this crew’s odds. Volador/Valiente would be a fun match if they had to change plans, but since the lineup notes the rudos are national trios champs.

Puma seems back in DF circulation after a month of being elsewhere.

CMLL (TUE) 12/06/2011 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) El Divino vs Acertijo
2) Leo & Robin vs Evola & Zayco
3) Starman & Super Halcon Jr. vs Exterminador & Ráfaga
4) Dragon Lee, Gallo, Stuka Jr. vs Euforia, Pólvora, Virus
5) La Sombra, Máscara Dorada, Máximo vs Mr. Águila, Olímpico, Psicosis

Dragon Lee/Virus feud arrives here.

CMLL on Televisa: 2011-11-26

taped 2011-11-18 @ Arena Mexico


un foul

Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr., Metro vs Shigeo Okumura, Vangelis, Yoshihashi: A usual match with this técnico crew, picking up nicely during the third fall. The Metro vs Maya/Delta bit was completely ignored until the finish, but they did strongly focus on it when they got there. The Axis Powers rudos were in the right places at the right time, but seem a bit beneath where these técnicos ought to be, especially if they’re teaming with Shocker & Atlantis.

Jushin Lyger vs Dragón Rojo Jr. for the CMLL World Middleweight Championship: Match wasn’t really much good. Not even really blaming the participants here; match felt like it ended four minutes early to get in the low blow spot. It was well done, but the final fall was lacking any serious drama, and the ending made this seem like a setup to more UG/Atlantis than anything to do with these guys. The match was a strict adherence to the usual formula, which seemed to work well for the first two falls and not so much in the third fall. Neither guy looked exemplary here, but this felt more like a wasted opportunity than guys not being up to the challenge.

Evil ninja keeps title over good ninja, AAA’s new web magazine

LyC (SUN) 11/27/2011 Arena Coliseo Monterrey [LyC Facebook (2), LyC Facebook (3), LyC Facebook (4), LyC Facebook (5)]
2) Core b Demencia
Core has 3 straight, 2 over Demencia
3) Genocida b Big Neurosis [LyC HEAVY]
Genocida won the title.
4) Dralion, Gato Fantasma, Silencio b Gemelo Muerte I, Gemelo Muerte II, Misionero [LyC TRIOS]
Dralion’s team (Los Reyes del Aire) won the trios titles.
5) Hijo del Ninja b Ninja Jr., Simbolo, Rico Rodriguez [LyC CHAMP]
Hijo del Ninja kept his title, forming new faction “Nueva Potencia Ruda” with Simbolo and Rico Rodriguez. Rudo referee too.

Hijo del Ninja should’ve just named the group CUPRA.

Virus kept the CMLL Super Lightweight Title in Puebla last night. Twitter reports were down on Dragon Lee’s performance. Policeman might have been bleeding in the opener judging from other photos I saw.

Tonight’s Arena Mexico show has the advertised return of Rey Cometa (unless CMLL is up to something.) Main event was scheduled to be Rush, Angel de Oro & La Mascara vs TRT – that’s what they actually announced on TV – but Mephisto will replace Texano. CMLL’s currently on a streak of someone quitting every other Tuesday, but we’re on an even Tuesday so you may have to wait seven days for the next one.

AAA has put up the first issue of Rudos vs Tecnicos, a web magazine, for free on their website. It’s done by the same editor as Dos de Tres, and it’s very well done. They’ve integrated photo galleries, audio, and video nicely in the articles. It’s impressive. The magazine includes a Sexi Star interview (and photos), plus conversations with the Psycho Circus & El Dandy.

CMLL found out it’s women’s title changed hands! Good for them. In a better world, Ayumi keeps the title forever, the Heavyweight title is never mentioned again, and CMLL keeps weening itself down on titles.

The Dantes Factory Shows, started by Apolo after he was booted from Arena Coliseo Guadalajara, are going to continue on with his brother Cesar running the show now that Apolo’s back in charge. Interestingly, the next show has Gallo & Black Metal from ACG in the main event.

4) Golden Boy, Intocable, Máscara Púrpura vs Hijo del Ninja, Hombre Sin Miedo, Rico Rodriguez
5) Cibernético & Neurosis vs Konnan Big & Simbolo

Estrellita, Intocable and Cibernetico on the same show means someone’s getting in trouble. La Parka & Octagon turned rudo to try and get out of the second match in AAA. Cibernetico really needed to turn tecnico, except it doesn’t nearly mean as much when you’ve been both. I’m sure Cibernetico is unhappy, probably unhappy enough to take outside bookings.

IWL (SAT) 12/17/2011 Cecuco, Arrayanes Y Av. Panamericana San Juan del Rio, Quereraro

5) Rayo de Jalisco Jr., Solar I, Villano IV b El Brazo, Máscara Año 2000, Negro Navarro
2/3 for tecnicos, Rayo of course getting the pin. Mascara Ano 2000 dislocated a shoulder early in the match.

Black Terry Jr. has video of Mascara Ano 2000 being checked on by his rivals and back in the training room.

CMLL (SUN) 11/27/2011 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [El Occidental]
6) Dragón Rojo Jr. b Máscara Dorada
Dragon Rojo attacked Dorada during his entrance and won the first fall. Mask ripping second fall, with Dorada taking the fall. Dragon beat Dorada in the third fall when Dorada had his hand on the ropes.

Looks like a really bad turnout.

Other news

El Pancracio’s latest update is up, and the opening article seems to be guessing Sangre Azteca as the next luchador jump to Perros del Mal. Unless there’s another person who’s traveled to Europe to train wrestled and has “been converted to tecnico against his will.” I don’t think Sangre Azteca really wanted to be a tecnico (how you can tell: watch any of his 2011 matches), but I do think he was told he’d have plenty to do as a tecnico and not getting any of that is probably as much the source of the unhappiness.

Tonight’s Arena Puebla show has the Virus vs Dragon Lee CMLL (occasionally super) lightweight title match. It doesn’t feel like time for Dragon Lee to win, but CMLL is so clearly high on him that it feels 50/50. That match would be a really great week for Puebla to turn up on YouTube, just to know what Virus is capable. (That’s really why to root for Virus to win – more Virus singles matches.)

Luchas 2000 #597 has five different stories on the cover.

Rob has highlights of 11/15/11 C3.


  • Arena Jalisco de Guadalajara says they’ll welcome DTU wrestlers, as long as they obey the rules about no extreme fighting in their arena. (DTU is going to nearby Arena Roberto Paz.)
  • DJ Spectro starts a history of the Ultraman character

Site Notes

Both Guerra de Titanes and Sin Piedad are 12/16, so I’ll definitely be running a chat and live results on that night.

There’s now a page of YouTube/video links added in the last week, in case you’re looking for what popped up (or what I’ve gotten to) lately. Updates nightly.


CMLL (SUN) 12/04/2011 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Thunder Boy vs Javier Cruz Jr.
2) Esfinge & Hierro vs Ángel del Mal & Infierno
3) León Blanco vs Gran Kenut
4) Ángel Azteca, Black Metal, Gallo vs Magnum, Mr. Trueno, Rey Trueno
5) Hijo del Fantasma & La Máscara vs Rey Bucanero & Terrible

Down to just five DF guys (and the return of local vs local feuds.) Magnum seems to be flipping back and forward between sides depending on who they need on that show.

12/01 AAA TV Lineup (Toluca)

AAA TV (THU) 12/01/2011 Gimnasio Agustín Millán
1) Fabi Apache, La Braza, Lolita vs Jennifer Blake, Sexy Star, Yuriko
2) Fenix & Jack Evans vs Dark Dragon & Halloween
3) Joe Lider vs Nicho el Millionario [street]
4) Súper Fly & Zorro vs Octagón & Tito Santana
5) Monster Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown vs Chessman, Decnnis, Último Gladiador
6) Dr. Wagner Jr. & Electroshock vs LA Park & La Parka

KrisZ had most of this last night.

projected air date: 12/10? Which means this airs before Guerra de Titanes, but they don’t appear to have anything to air the day after unless they do a really quick turnaround. (It feels like they were expecting a Teleton pre-emption here. Heck, I still am.)

AAA pushes the rudo main event team, questioning if they can get along. This is a really strong idea, if they had more than 4 days to build to it. (They’ll have a whole 7 on TV – if they bring it up.)

Second match should be fun. Semimain could be too. Both the tag matches have interesting combinations; Tito is going to have a long day. (And probably Dark Dragon too.)

Last stop before Guerra de Titanes. Which appears to be

1) Jeff Jarrett (c) vs Mesias [AAA WORLD] – assuming Mesias isn’t that hurt
2) Dr. Wagner Jr. (c) vs LA Park [AAA LA] – probably with both sons involved

vague directions
– something with Nicho/Lider (seems to soon to do hair/hair for me, since Nicho just lost it)
– something with Jack vs Los Perros (maybe combined with previous?)
– something with Gunner!
– maybe something with Pimpi and the REINA’s title

Shocker vs Atlantis, Dos Caras, Lucha POP

LEGEND (SAT) 11/19/2011 Arena San Juan Pantitlan [SL440]
1) Danny Boy & Dragon Chino b Memo Arenas & Ray Richard
Dragon Chino replaced Flecha/Skayde. Richard & Danny Boy are feuding.
2) Mohicano I & Mohicano II b Gran Apache & Gran Apache II
Best match of the night. Mochicano I snuck in a foul on Gran Apache II, and the two talked about an apuesta match.
3) Dinámico II, Falcón, Ultraman b Billy Boy, Escoria, Taboo
Dinamico II is Ultrman’s nephew.
4) Aerostar, Argos, Drago (AAA) b Cuchillo, El Engendro, Scorpio Jr.
Argos, who is supposedly hurt, replaced the MIA Laredo Kid. Argos, also hurt, also worked this match. Tecnicos took 1/3, Argos getting the pin on Scorpio. Cuchillo replaced Shu el Guerrero.
5) Dos Caras Sr., Halcon 78, Villano IV NC Monster Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown
Clowns won the first fall, team UWA won the second, Los Perros (Damian, Bestia, Ek Balam) attacked the Clowns, which somehow was ruled a no-contest instead of a DQ. Both teams ran off the Perros.

Don’t get paid if you don’t work.

LUCHA POP (SAT) 11/26/2011 Centro de Espactaculos, Ecatepec [Black Terry Jr. (flickr)Estrellas del RingLuchas en Vivo]
1) Angel del Misterio & Arez b Big Mama & Tornado
2) Black Mamba, La Vaquerita, Yuki Star b Angel del Misterio, Keira, Vanely
Despite the loss, Keira will still get One Last Chance at Vaquerita’s title. Black Mamba pinned Angel del Misterio.
3) Zumbi b Tribal
Tribal was Zumbi’s mystery opponent. Zumbi remains undefeated in LUCHA Pop.
4) Lolita DCOR Diana La Cazadora
Keira was Lolita’s second, Vaquerita’s Diana, so of course they got involved with the match and each other. Fans not thrilled with the draw finish, and they made tag challenges.
5) Trauma I b Trauma II, Black Terry, Tritón (IWRG), Judas el Traidor, Belial, Negro Navarro, Terremoto Negro [Torneo POP STAR] YouTube
Not so much brackets after all, just an 8 way elimination match. Order of elimination was Belial, Terremoto Negro, Triton, Judas, and Black Terry, just leaving the three Navarros. Negro beat Trauma II, but Trauma I defeated his dad.

They announced another show here on 12/18.

Segunda Caida already has a review of the main event.

CMLL (SUN) 11/27/2011 Arena Coliseo [CMLL, CMLL Gaceta (4)La Catedral]
1) Apocalipsis & Bronco b Höruz & Leono
Rudos took 2/3.
2) Bobby Zavala, Rayo Tapatío I, Rayo Tapatío II b Hombre Bala Jr., Starman, Super Halcon Jr.
Rudos took 1/3. Rayo Tapatio I pinned Starman for the deciding win.
3) Black Warrior, Hijo del Fantasma, Toscano b Misterioso Jr., Nitro, Vangelis
Nitro replaced Hijo del Signo. Tecnicos took 1/3.
4) Atlantis, Guerrero Maya Jr., Sagrado DQ Shocker, Titán, Triton
The ‘new’ Joven Tapatios made their debuts here. Shocker’s squad got DQed in the first fall for crotching Maya on the post (which seems to have been reclassified as a foul rather recently), then rallied back to the take the second. Shocker fouled Atlantis in the third for the second DQ and the loss. The new unit are clearly rudos against Atlantis’ gang, and it remains to be seen if they’re rudos against everyone else.
5) Ephesto, Mephisto, Volador Jr. b La Máscara, Rush, Super Porky
Rudos took 1/3. In the third, Volador pulled off his shirt – and pulled off his mask in the process! Volador stumbled with his arms stuck in his shirt, trying to get his mask back, and Mascara kicked him out of the ring.

I like to think the Tapatios are now friends with Zavala because he sold out all the secrets of his Gen11 allies. I also like to think this is a vignette that aired on some show I have yet to get to, but will find in about five years. It makes CMLL easier to handle.

Other News

Next weekend is annual Teleton (Mexican telethon for special needs children, a fine idea), which takes over many Mexican (and some US) channels for Friday and Saturday. Early schedules says they are NOT pre-empting AAA & CMLL’s main shows. Looks like the AAA regional broadcast via Guadalajara is still on. Not as sure about any other ones, and this can all change in the next few days.

1) Mini Histeria & Tigre Cota b Argenis & Mascarita Divina
2) Dark Dragon & Tito Santana b Sugi San & Súper Fly
Moved down a spot to the second match. Super Fly was taken out by Octagon & the rudos walking to the ring. Sugi was left on his own for a while. Super Fly did recover to help make the comeback, but the rudos still won. Sugi got dropped on his head on a ‘rana-like move from Dark Dragon and was strechered out.
3) Casandro, La Braza, Pimpinela Escarlata b Pasion Kristal, Polvo de Estrellas, Yuriko
Casandro pinned Yuriko
4) Abyss & Chessman b Extreme Tiger & Joe Lider
Moved down a spot to the fourth match. Lider looked like he might win the match, and Nicho ran in to put a stop to that. Abyss put Lider thru a table for the win. Nicho threw fire in Tiger’s face.
5) Gunner b Monster Clown
Also moved down a spot. This was a bit weird. Mesias came out first, showing an elbow injury, explaining he’d been attacked by Gunner and saying the medical personal did not want him to wrestle but he did want to anyway. Konnan came out, and ordered Mesias to fight Dark Dragon & Tito to get to Mesias. That did not last long before Gunner jumped in. Monster Clown, Murder Clown and Joaquin Roldan came out for the save, with Roldan making the actual match Monster Clown vs Gunner. Plenty of of interference and Gunner won.
6) Fenix & Jack Evans b el Hijo del Perro Aguayo & Halloween
Moved up two spots. Rudos dominated the match, but Jack again snuck a pin on Perro via moonsault on chair for the win. Perros were very displeased, blooding Jack after the match. No new Perro.
7) Dr. Wagner Jr., Psycho Clown, Zorro DQ LA Park, Nicho el Millionario, Octagón
Dr. Wagner was accompanied by Hijo de Dr. Wagner, who was attacked by Park during the match. Octagon had Tito & Dark Dragon fighting for him. After a brawl, Octagon fouled Wagner for the DQ. Park vs Wagner for Guerra de Titanes was announced. Hijo del Dr. Wagner will be Wagner’s second for that match.

Mexico Air Date: looking like 12/03 now.

Gunner vs Monster Clown! I was trying to figure out the proper AAA comparison to Gunner, and Monster Clown, the least important Clown, is pretty close. I don’t know how Jeff Jarrett is going to rule it, but it seems to me he needs to pay Gunner for taking out Mesias. (Also, AAA kind of needs to bring him back for someone to beat him later now. Though maybe not, because it’s Gunner.)

Next taping is Thursday, the traditional date for shows in Toluca. No lineup posted for it quite yet, but it should be soon.
