AULL LUCHA POP (SAT) 11/05/2011 Arena Lopez Mateos [Black Terry Jr. (flickr), Estrellas del Ring]
1) Black Mamba & Vanely b Angel del Misterio & Felina Metalica and Big Mama & Bugambilia del Norte
No Dashuri or Bellali, so Angel del Misterio and Felina Metailca formed a team. Metalica banged her head on the floor on a dive.
2) La Vaquerita b Yuki Star [POP FEMENIL]
Vaquerita kept her title. Keira asked for the next show. Vaquerita agreed, but it’s Keira’s last chance.
3) Centurión, Dinamic Black, Saruman b Boikot, Mr. Leo, Sublime [Discipulo de Oro, quarterfinal]
Team IWRG over Team Super Colt
4) Dante, Iron Love, Tormento b Dragon Negro, Gander, Ztizan [Discipulo de Oro, quarterfinal]
Team Santana/AULL over Team Justiciero
5) Bizarro, Kortiz, Nergo Casasola b Maiden, Sepultura, Super Calo Jr. [Discipulo de Oro, quarterfinal]
Team Villano IV over Team Greco.
6) Keira, Terremoto Negro, Triton b Maligno Negro, Rayito Mendoza, Shark Boy [Discipulo de Oro, quarterfinal]
Team Lucha POP over Team Gallego. Vaquerita replaced Sexi Star as mentor.
7) Dante, Iron Love, Tormento b Centurión, Dinamic Black, Saruman [Discipulo de Oro, semifinal]
Team AULL over Team IWRG when Iron Love stole Saruman’s mask and pinned him. Dante suffered a fractured tibia and fibula on a dive.
8) Bizarro, Kortiz, Negro Casasola b Keira, Terremoto Negro, Triton [Discipulo de Oro, semifinal]
Team Villano over Team Lucha POP. The finals were postponed until the next show due to Dante’s injury; the Villano team beat up the remaining members of the AULL team instead.
9) Zumbi b Argos and Último Gladiador
No Daga. Gladiador and Argos both beat up on Zumbi for a while and tried to settle it among themselves, but Zumbi kept stopping the referee from making the three count. Zumbi finally stole a pin on UG for the win.
CMLL (SUN) 11/06/2011 Arena Coliseo [CMLL, La Catedral, Record]
1) Camorra & Zayco b Enrique Vera Jr. & Soberano Jr.
Rudos took 2/3.
2) Arkángel de la Muerte, Hooligan, Puma King b Ángel Azteca Jr., Höruz, Sensei
Rudos took 1/3. Mr. Cacao, watching in the crowd, got into a brawl with Arkangel, Hooligan and Skandalo (who was hanging around backstage) after the match, and lost the 3 on 1 fight.
3) Palacio Negro, Sangre Azteca, Stuka Jr. b Cancerbero, Hijo del Signo, Raziel
Tecnicos took 1/3.
4) Rey Bucanero, Terrible, Texano b Super Porky, Toscano, Valiente
Rudos took 1/3, Terrible powerbombing Rush for the deciding pin. Terrible issued a challenge for Rush’s title.
5) Averno, Mephisto, Mr. Niebla b Atlantis, Héctor Garza, Jushin Lyger
Rudos took 1/3. Atlantis had Niebla in the Atlantida, but Averno & Mephisto made the save and Niebla got the win.
I am intrigued by the idea of a Terrible/Rush match.
NJPW announced CMLL/NJPW FantasticMania would return for 2012.
The shows will be January 23rd and 24th. That’s a Monday and a Tuesday, and the Tuesday show appears to be an afternoon one. I dunno, but it may mean no one misses a Friday night show for the quick trip. This is going to be a tougher sell; it’s the second year, and the two big feuds last year’s shows were built around – Mistico vs Averno and Devitt/Taguchi vs Omega/Ibushi – are likely bigger than anything they have for this year. MaskMania has a list of guys he hopes he gets to see; I want to see Peste Negra in Japan as long as Zacarias get to fly with them. There will likely be a lot of title matches, which means champions are headed over, but good luck guessing who’s going to be champions by then. This surely means CMLL participation on the 01/04 Tokyo Dome show too.
Edit: The shows are actually January 21st and January 22nd, a Saturday and Sunday.
AAA held it’s last preliminary round of the Quien Para Por La Corona talent search contest earlier today in Leon. This is the complete list of finalists, as they’ve been announced:
AAA has not published a full list yet. This is who I have.
06/18 DF: Drastik Boy, Keira, Silencio, Silver Tiger, Blazer, Daga, Freelance (Violento Jack announced as skipping directly to AAA)
07/09 Veracruz: Exorcista Jr., Hijo del Exorcista, Mini Espiritu, Samurai del Sol, Corsario de Fuego, Angel del Misterio
07/31 Guadalajara: La Mágnifica, Cometa, Tony Rodríguez, Spark, Tiger King
08/14 Acapulco: Xtreme Warrior, El Hijo de Black Silver, Príncipe Aéreo, Bryan, Brandon, Alas de Plata, Fetiche
09/04 San Luis Potosi: Aeroboy, Oro Azul, Bogar Jr., Bogar Maligno, Turbo Kid, Sangre de Dragon, Reina Azteca
10/02 Puebla: Dinastía, Violencia Jr., Barbaro I, Sexy Boy, Lucky Boy, Cóncord, Tribal

11/06 Leon: Maremoto, Chica Ya Ya, Septimo Dragon, Alrequin, El Gason
That’s a total of 51 luchadors. No word yet on what the next cut down step. This is supposed to have one male, one female and one mini winner, though there seems to only a handful of women and it’s unclear which wrestlers are being classified as mins. This list will probably change a bit by the next step, based on people being unavailable or otherwise occupied.
Not sure if Daga is still in this tournament now that he’s on TV. There’s a number of people here who would previously had some level of relationship with AAA (or have a connection thru someone else) who would probably already be on AAA shows if they had room for a larger roster. Daga’s match was TV match on YouTube a few hours ago, but is off now; the description mentioned his name was changed to “Roco”. Edit: match is now working: part 1 and part 2
SuperLuchas notices the WWS Welterweight Championship Eterno won at IWRG this Thursday wasn’t actually that belt we’ve seen before – it was an Estadio de Mexico championship belt with the letters WWS applied via marker. It means about the same much.
