Sangre Azteca won in 6:39, via counter dropkick, inverted crucifix bomb, and triangular del solar.
4) Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr., Metro DQ Ephesto, Rey Escorpion, Shigeo Okumura
Tecnicos took 2/3. Guerrero Maya was hurt on a second fall dive, which may have led to a premature end. Metro German suplexed Okumura to pin him, Ephesto took out Metro with his dive, Escorpion tried to sneak foul Delta but did it right in front of Tigre Hispano for the DQ.
5) Rey Bucanero, Terrible, Tiger b La Máscara, Máscara Dorada, Valiente
Another win for new TRT, taking 1/3. Terrible powerbombed Valiente and Bucanero gave Mascara the Buca Storm.

Announced as a three way, became a tag match with Black Label added. Black Label’s (unnamed) valet interfered to give their team the win. Ludark challenged the (unnamed) woman to a mask vs hair match.

Other News

Ras de Lona had part 2 of it’s year recap. Included: Hector Garza beating Ultimo Guerrero for the Heavyweight title.  Wonder whatever happened there. There was an odd jump from Mano Negra being honored in early October to Dragon Rojo  beating Jushin Lyger at the end of November. It was not an exciting time, but they did skip Silueta & Marcela winning their titles after showing most every other title change.

indy (SUN) 01/01/2012 Arena Neza

billed as two masks vs two hairs
4) El Hijo del Solitario, Pirata Morgan, Villano IV vs Blue Demon Jr., El Hijo de Aníbal, Texano Jr.
5) El Hijo Del Santo vs Angel Blanco Jr. [WWA WELTER]

Just like Christmas, New Year’s Day is packed with shows.

Mexico preview, notes

Today’s Arena Mexico is probably the least interesting DF/Puebla area show in a week. El Trio Sensacion and nuevo TRT are in (separate) matches and should keep their win streak going. Metro teams with Guerrero Maya & Delta again, without particularlly feuding with them.

Luchaworld has KrisZ’s news report.



CMLL (TUE) 01/03/2012 Arena Mexico
1) Enrique Vera Jr. & Höruz vs Artillero & Súper Comando
2) Metálico, Molotov, Starman vs Bronco, Inquisidor, Puma King
3) Diamante, Dragon Lee, Pegasso vs Cancerbero, Loco Max, Raziel
4) Black Warrior, Blue Panther, Super Porky vs Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto
5) Dragón Rojo Jr. vs Ángel de Oro [CMLL MIDDLE]

Title change would be a surprise.

Blue Panther’s suspension is up. It’s even two weeks from the Puebla mach, if you want count that as the real start.

great match roundup, week of 12/24/11

(The post you’re looking for is two more down.)

I’m going to start doing a weekly quality match round up. The goal is to build a list of notable matches thru continuously, rather than in big year chunks.

To make the list, the match needs one where you want people who do not normally watch that show to go out of their way to watch. Good for the level of the show is nice but not strong enough to make to the list. We want the extraordinary.

Two categories
– Excellent: MOTYC quality
– Great: just short of that, worth checking out

AULL, Valiente apparently fine and winning matches, Niurka

AULL (SUN) 12/25/2011 Arena Lopez Mateos [R de Rudo]
4) Flamita, Súper Nova, Yakuza b Epitafio, Herejía, Trauma II
Ronny, Kilvan, Hombre sin Rostro attacked Epitafio after the loss.
5) Hormiga Atomica, Rey Kristal, Super Panda, Tortuguillo Ninja b Hombre sin Rostro, Kilvan, Pequeno Demonio, Ronny Ventura
Team Kristal took falls 2/3. After the match, Epitafio ran out to attack Ronny Venturs. Kilvan and Hombre sin Rostro helped Ronny, only for two mystery men to help Epitafio and set up a six man tag.
6) Iron Love b Chico del Barrio [hair]
Chico del Barrio hit the referee in the first fall for the DQ, won the second, and Iron Love came off the top rope to win.
7) Ray Mendoza Jr. & Villano IV b Chucho el Roto & Héctor Garza [UWA TAG]
Chucho el Roto replaced Texano Jr. Perhaps part of the El Consejo gimmick is inexplicable no-shows. This was moved to the semimain, so perhaps they knew there was no point in waiting for Texano to show up. Garza & Chucho were unfriendly partners. Villanos attacked the challengers during the photo and got the quick first fall win. Garza & Chucho won the second, and Chucho was pinning V4 for the win when Garza pulled V4’s mask for the DQ. (Or maybe they moved this to the semimain when they decided to have such a horrible finish.)

CMLL (MON) 12/26/2011 Arena Puebla [Porra Fresa]
1) Arissma & Policeman b Lestat & Stigma
Rudos take 2/3.
2) Metálico, Molotov, Sensei b Apocalipsis, Bronco, Inquisidor
Tecnicos take 2/3.
3) Lady Apache, Luna Mágica, Marcela b Amapola, La Comandante, Zeuxis
Tecnicas took 1/3.
4) Black Warrior, Metro, Valiente b Ephesto, Pólvora, Rey Escorpion
Would you believe it – Valiente actually wrestled in this match! Maybe all that bodybuilding strengthened his neck muscles? Tecnicos took 1/3, and attacked Rey Escorpion a bit after the fall.
5) La Máscara, Máximo, Super Porky b Averno, Mephisto, Volador Jr.
Rudos took 1/3, focusing on Volador and Mascara feuding. Volador’s mask accidentally came off during this match too, so it appears to be a reoccurring bit. Volador demanded a shot at Mascara’s NWA title, Mascara agreed but asked for a mask match after. Volador refused that part.

If you haven’t seen it, TerceraCaida aired footage of the injury. Valiente does attempt to control his fall by grabbing the ropes as he fell, but it still did not look great. And yet, there he was.

Niurka, who wikipedia describes as ” a Cuban-born Mexican singer, dancer, actress, and erotic model” won her match in Arena Coliseo Monterrey on Tuesday. It was an atomticos, with her boyfriend Intocable as part of one team, and Konnan Big and Estrellita among those on the other side. Video here. Looks like it worked as a publicity stunt, as far as attendance.

Other News

Dragon Rojo explains he didn’t want to give Angel de Oro a title shot because he’s a lucky guy and not on his level. That match and the Rush/Terrible matches are interesting tests. Neither is going to mean much to the box office, but are big chances to improve impressions for the future. The last Rush/Terrible match wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t good enough to make a difference, and they could use a difference maker.

Perros del Mal say they have a big surprise for the main event on their 01/01 show. Which means either it’s not a real big surprise, or they’ll randomly give it away in the next couple of days if the last few times they’ve done this is any indication.

Violento Jack and Daga are feuding via social media. Apparently, Violento Jack accuses Daga as only being in wrestling for the money and Daga accuses Violento Jack of not being a skilled professional wrestler.

IWL explains Groon replaced Rayo on their Christmas show because Rayo just stopped returning messages.

Hijo del Solitario believe he’ll beat Hijo del Santo in a potential mask vs mask match because he’s bigger and younger, and Santo is just a product of marketing. Solitario also implies previous Santo victims were paid to lose (!!!!) but the only payment he’s taking is Santo’s mask. Strong interview, though I’m not sure the one Todo x el Todo would be thrilled with.

Kcidis imagines a rudo Rush, turning on Marco Corleone. A lot of people have had that thought. Meanwhile, CMLL’s ever increasing web promo department has a few words from Terrible about the title match. CMLL Gaceta also previews the match, but it’s a bit of a stretch to talk about the tremendous importance of the championship when the last champion rather leave than being champion anymore, when CMLL didn’t address the title situation for a month, and when lauded former champion Ultimo Guerrero can’t be bothered to be in the tournament. It’s nice for one of these guys to win the belt, but the winner is not actually going to be a champion of anything for a long time.

An action figure seller says WWE ones have been outselling “AAA” ones the last couple years. I wonder if that’ll continue; WON noted Mexican buyrates are dropping (though that could just be a no-Sin Cara/no-Rey Misterio issue too.)


top six stories in the last two weeks

  1. The big story from Guerra de Titanes didn’t involve anyone in a match, but the debut of “El Consejo”, a pseudo-CMLL faction feuding with all of AAA. They attacked Dr. Wagner and son moments after LA Park again used brass knuckles to win a big match (and the Latin American Title this time.) Mesias beat TNA wrestlers AJ Styles and Rob Terry to earn a World Title shot against Jeff Jarrett at some time to be determined, and Vampiro made his fourth annual surprise return to AAA.
  2. Felino lost his hair to Blue Panther, but more directly to a referee ruling at Sin Piedad. Blue Panther earlier tried for the dreaded martinete, causing the commission to rule the next time anyone even attempted the move, it would be an automatic DQ. Felino was either didn’t realize that or didn’t care, and was caught moments later trying to a piledriver. Referee broke it up and called an underwhelming DQ. In the undercard, Reyes del Atltandia beat El Invasors for the Mexican Trios Championship in the best match on either show and Marco Corleone had his return match for the promotion.
  3. Trauma I defeated Oficial AK-47 on the 39th anniversary of Arena Naucalpan. The long running rudo trio Oficials had previously escaped big matches through illegal means, but AK-47 was caught this time using a martinete. The scene of around the overturned finish was among the most dramatic of the year. Also, Eterno unified the welterweight titles and Carta Brava won the lightweight belt.
  4. AAA’s last taping of the year focused on El Consejo attacking both tecnicos and rudos, and LA Park hinted he was involved with them.
  5. Mascara Dorada and Valiente both suffered injuries on accidents. Dorada has already returned to action after a knee injury, valiente’s status is unknown.
  6. the La Catedral blog says Averno was offered the top spot in El Consejo, but turned it down.
  • on a Wagner promoted show, Head Hunter I won IWRG’s heavyweight title and Super Mega took the DTU belt, while the Gringos & LA Park & Octagon kept their titles.
  • Todo x el Todo show of champions featured all but Santo remaining champion. Santo lost his title to Angel Blanco, building up a mask match for February.
  • CMLL announced a cibernetico for the vacant heavyweight title, which turned out to be something slightly less. Terrible and Rush will fight for the title next week.

12/31-01/01 lucha times


Both AAA and CMLL started their year recap shows (in other words, vacation while keeping the time slots.) CMLL got as far as February, AAA got as far as Rey de Reyes, so there are surely many more weeks like that in front of us. The matches, in the clipped formed they aired, have been added to the video post. I’m not sure we really should call them Best Of, because it just appears to be random matches picked with no regard for logic.

Galavision in the US is still not airing lucha libre. This two weeks can be chalked up to holiday disruptions, but if it’s not back next week, it may have just been quietly dropped.

52MX: should be the last build to Tapatios vs Halcon/Bala, and the exciting non-conclusion to the heavyweight cibernetico.

FOX: Easier to call here when they’re the only one airing Friday night matches. Probably the top two (TRT vs Fantamsa/Porky/Valiente, Marco/Maximo/Rush vs Avernos) and possibly the Polvora vs Stuka lightning match.

C3: More Angel de Oro vs Dragon Rojo

GDL: Dorada/Maximo/Rush vs Ephesto/Niebla/Negro, plus Lee/Fuego/Maya vs Invasors and women…if this isn’t a rerun.

Puebla: more build to Volador vs La Mascara.

Monterrey: ????

Perros del Mal: hasn’t aired since the last time I did this post, but this should be debut of Texano & Terrible here.

Todo x el Todo is back on TVC Deportes this Friday from 5-7, with the second half of the latest show.

Angel de Oro vs Dragon Rojo, CMLL on Consejo & Arena Mexico

(photo by CMLL)

CMLL (TUE) 12/27/2011 Arena Mexico [CMLL]
1) Cholo & Zayco b Bengala & Camaleón
2) Astral, Fantasy, Shockercito b Mercurio, Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Warrior
3) Diamante, Pegasso, Rey Cometa b Arkángel de la Muerte, Hijo del Signo, Nitro
Nitro & Signo replaced Cancerbero & Nosferatu. Seems like a net positive.
4) Olímpico, Psicosis, Virus b Black Warrior, Titán, Triton
Titan & Triton returned to their losing ways.
5) Ángel de Oro, Hijo del Fantasma, Super Porky b Averno, Dragón Rojo Jr., Mephisto
Angel de Oro beat Dragon Rojo clean with the mecedora. Dragon Rojo still did not want to put up his title, but the fans booed him into accepting the challenge.

CMLL sent out two press releases getting to some ongoing issues. First, they said the luchadors using the name El Consejo are former members of their promotion and do not represent them at all. CMLL declared they own the copyright on that name and other using are breaking Mexican laws. (CMLL won’t even mention AAA by name here.)

CMLL also refuted rumors they were selling Arena Coliseo, calling that a lie spread by those who have not visited their offices or called them. This press release has an quote attributed to Jose Luis Feliciano, speculating that it’s just confusion because they’re not running shows there to 1/22. That rumor has been going on for weeks unrelated to that, but maybe it’s just the first CMLL’s heard of it.

It’s great CMLL has finally gotten around to addressing these stories. They really should’ve picked a better day to do it.

Other News

La Catedral finishes up it’s round up of the CMLL roster with people who haven’t been around much. This articles goes deep, with thoughts on women who’ve had one match in Mexico City (Kiara, Lady Afrodita) and luchadors who appeared to quit and return home months ago (Principe.)

Estrellas del Ring has a year in review from Escuela de Lucha Libre in Acapuclo. Also, they have interviews with new champs Eterno and Carta Brava Jr.

Lucha Libre Cake writes about Atlantis & Rey Bucanero vs Chuck Taylor and Johnny Gargano from a July CHIKARA show. That match is online as part of CHKARA’s podcast.



CMLL (TUE) 01/03/2012 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Esfinge & Virgo vs Evola & Metalik
2) Meteoro & Último Dragoncito vs Pequeño Nitro & Pequeño Warrior
3) Fuego vs Malefico
one fall match
4) Metro & Sangre Azteca vs Olímpico & Psicosis
5) Hijo del Fantasma, Máximo, Rush vs Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas, Pólvora

Not sure if the third match is a lightning match or just a one fall match with no time limit.

Christmas results, New Year’s Day lineups

Quick results

Colibiri beat Silencioso to win the CROC lightweight title on Christmas Day in Arena Aficion. I have no idea what CROC stands for. Silencioso held the title at least back to 2009.

On the same day in Tijuana, Extassis took Tony Casanova’s hair and Hijo de Rey Misterio I (the first one) won a mystery championship and joined the Perros del Mal.

Los Gorilla kept the Juniors tag titles over Violento Jack, Aeroboy and Hijo del Medico Asesino on 12/23.

Not much more than results from the IWL Christmas show, but Groon XXX replaced Rayo in the main event. Groon’s only turned up very rarely since his injury on the Perros del Mal show in 2010.

Other News

Tomorrow is Dia de la Innocents. I’m not posting any joke stories, but if you read something that sounds funny (peculiar) on other sites, maybe it’s meant to be funny (hilarious).

At last update, Valiente was doing better but still under observation.

Rush says he’ll win the heavyweight title because he feeds on hatred. That’s what makes him a great rudo.

Demus’ facebook was hacked.

Ovaciones says the IWRG return to TV Azteca may happen in 2012. That’s a carrot on a stick story.

The Daily Mail has an article about Mexican women leaving the household and becoming luchadoras to make ends meet. This is kind of a story created out of thin air and not actually news.

It’s the time of year to start my favorite annual story: the lucha commission of Torreon (Laguna) announcing all luchadors have to get their license renewed. This is followed in a month by an article saying early licensing is almost over, and then by one noting almost no one’s actually gotten a license and everyone expressing total surprise this has happened (again).

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.

Lucha Libre (Titles) in Japan

Let’s see if I get this right. Ayumi has two title  defenses scheduled in Japan.

01/03 UNION (branch of DDT) @ Korakuen Hall: Ayumi (c) vs Cherry [CMLL WOMEN]
01/15 REINA @ (ex? Chiba Blue Field): Ayumi (c) vs Haily Hatred [CMLL WOMEN]
REINA recently bought this building from MichinokuPro and will be running there now.

Ayumi’s surely coming back to Mexico with the title sometime in 2012, but I guess it could change hands back and forth until then if CMLL’s okay with it. It could also change hands if CMLL’s not okay with it, that’s happened a couple times in Japan with their other belts. Seems unlikely though.



CMLL (FRI) 12/30/2011 Arena Olímpico Laguna de Gómez Palacio
1) Dany Fantom & Imperio Negro vs Camorra Jr. & Detector Jr.
2) Piloto Negro & Piloto Suicida vs Gringo Loko & Oso Negro
3) Agatha & Lady Star vs Gatubela & Piel Canela
4) Dragón Rojo Jr. & Último Guerrero vs Mr. Guerrero & V-57 [CMLL TAG]

The rudos (or at least three of them) were teamed up last Friday here, but turned on each other and set up this tag title match.

Fun fact: they’ve done listed that tag match five out of the last six weeks (and maybe the sixth week was a typo.)

IWRG (SUN) 01/01/2012 Arena Naucalpan
***IWRG 15th Anniversary***
1) Astro de Plata, Astro Rey Jr., Centurión vs ?, Gemelo Fantastico I, Gemelo Fantastico II
2) Chico Che, Dinamic Black, Saruman vs Alan Extreme, Carta Brava Jr., Comando Negro
3) Golden Magic, Trauma I, Trauma II vs Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro
4) Súper Nova, Texano Jr., Ultramán Jr. vs Canis Lupus, Eterno, Máscara Año 2000 Jr.
5) Multifacético vs Apolo Estrada Jr. [hair]

Not listed on IWRG’s site, but Ovaciones posted it (or nearly all off it.) They’ve celebrated Arena Naucalpan anniversaries, but rarely IWRG one. It’s neat to good one – looking thru the records, there’s doesn’t seem to be a really clear demarcation from just being regular shows at Arena Naucalpan to being IWRG – there’s just slowly some titles (and Japanese people.)

Apolo is the favorite in the main event, I believe.  01/01 is also this blog’s anniversary. I do need a haircut, but I do not think I will be facing anyone in a match.

CMLL (SUN) 01/01/2012 Arena Mexico
1) Höruz & Molotov vs Artillero & Super Comando
2) Bam Bam, Eléctrico, Último Dragoncito vs Demus 3:16, Pequeño Olímpico, Pequeño Violencia
3) Hombre Bala Jr. & Super Halcon Jr. vs Rayo Tapatío I & Rayo Tapatío II [mask]
4) Delta, Hijo del Fantasma, Metro vs Hijo del Signo, Negro Casas, Rey Escorpion
5) Ángel de Oro, La Máscara, Máximo vs Averno, Mephisto, Mr. Niebla
6) Rush vs Terrible [CMLL HEAVY]

Title match is a rematch from seven weeks ago. That one was for the light heavyweight title, and part of the reason I figure Terrible is winning is because Rush already has a title. (Not that CMLL minds doing another tournament.) There also seems to be a reconfiguration of TRT going on. It was Terrible & Texano as the tag team and Bucanero as singles/pseudo-leader, now it’s Tiger/Bucanero as the team and Terrible as pseduo-leader/singles. Not that means much in the big picture, it’s not like Bucanero is going to be losing his singles title, but it points in Terrible’s way here. Crowd will totally be behind Terrible, no doubt.

Terrible winning would be an interesting turn of events. Many people expected Terrible to leave, and there’s been situations in other promotions where wrestlers were promised title belts if they hung around longer. Not sure that’s what’s happening here, but the timing is there. Even if that’s not the reason why, Terrible & Texano have both come out of this tag team breakup pretty well. One’s a focal point of the biggest angle in AAA, the other may be heavyweight champ in CMLL.  A bit of divide and conquer.

Rayos putting their masks on the line and not getting out of the third match is awful lame; you’re hurting the importance of mask matches by putting them that low for the sake of not making other people unhappy to work lower matches. I’m sure the Rayos are losing their masks, but Halcon & Bala did not feel like the right team to win on 52MX this week.

PdM (SUN) 01/01/2012 Arena Lopez Mateos
4) Súper Nova vs Pesadilla, Peligro [PdM LH]
5) X-Fly vs Violento Jack, Aeroboy [PdM EXTREME]
6) Texano, Toscano, Zumbi vs ?, el Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Halloween

4) Marco Corleone, Máximo, Rush vs Dragón Rojo Jr., Rey Bucanero, Terrible
5) La Máscara vs Volador Jr. [NWA MIDDLE]

La Mascara is running thru rudos rather quickly.

Close to Trio Senscaion vs new TRT in the semimain.

12/24-25 lucha videos

The CMLL on Teleformula show did not air for a third week in a row; I’ll only mention it again if it does. The local CMLL Guadalajara show aired a rerun this past week.

AAA and CMLL were in rerun (“year in review”) mode. Those may turn up on Wednesday.
