CMLL (FRI) 01/13/2012 Arena Mexico [CMLL]
1) Aereo & Pequeño Halcón b Mercurio & Pequeño Universo 2000
2) Hombre Bala Jr. b Disturbio [lightning]
Bala won in about 6 1/2 minutes with a tornillo.
3) Dalis la Caribeña, Dark Angel, Marcela b Amapola, Princesa Blanca, Zeuxis
Tecnicas took 2/3, Marcela escaping the backcracker and giving Amapola a Michinoku Driver in the final. Dark Angel, in her first match back in Arena Mexico since she was hurt on a dive, pulled it off fine here. Said to be a very good match
4) Stuka Jr., Titán, Triton b Euforia, Misterioso Jr., Shigeo Okumura
Rematch from last week, where Euforia fouled Stuka. Rudos jumped the tecnicos, but they were still able to sneak out fall 1. Rudos took the second, and tecnicos came back to take the third behind Stuka landing the torpedo plancha on Euforia.
5) Atlantis, Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr. b Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto
Said to be an outstanding match. Pictures indicate rudos took the first, tecnicos the last two (with Averno taking the Atlantida in the third), but not confirmed. National trios champs beat world champs and challenged for a title shot. Averno said NO.
6) La Máscara, La Sombra, Máscara Dorada b Mr. Águila, Psicosis, Volador Jr.
Also said to be outstanding, with money being thrown in the ring. Mije was with the Invasors, either because he’s now going to be accompanying all of them or just because Monito happened to be with the tecnicos. Dorada wore the Lyger half mask from the Toyko Dome to the ring, while Mr. Aguila painted up half his face like the Volador Venom mask. Tecnicos took the match. Again, pictures seem to show the rudos taking 1, and tecnicos 2/3, but not confirmed. Mascara got Volador with the campana after a lot of chaos for the win.
MS1 was honored between the second and third match.
An all tecnico night. Sounds like it’ll end up being one of the best shows of the year for match quality up and down the card. The Televisa announcers were at the commentating desk, so that show should be back to normal next week (and Fox will still have a couple of these.)
They don’t have the full poster up just yet, but CMLL.com’s main page lists Marco, Mascara, Panther vs Niebla, Negro and Felino next week, the first Arena Mexico meeting of Blue Panther and the Casas brothers since the hair match.
Black Terry Jr. has posted Angelico & Dinamic Black vs Negro Navarro & Centvrion (part one and part two) and Black Terry & Alan Extreme vs Veneno & Saurman. YouTube has been messing with his uploads of late, but these seem to be working OK.
Rob has video highlights of mid November 1997 AAA.
