CMLL on Fox Sports (Mexico): 2012-01-07

taped 2011-12-30 @ Arena Mexico

file: match 1 match 2


this was even more random in context

Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr., Metro vs Ephesto, Rey Escorpion, Shigeo Okumura: kind of a disappointing match; there’s more interesting stuff with this exact técnico trio (even back when they remembered there was a feud here) than what was seen here. The only exception is whatever Maya was doing from the dive injury bit to his elimination; I’m pretty sure it was a bit, but not one I understood at all.



La Máscara, Máscara Dorada, Valiente vs Rey Bucanero, Terrible, Tiger: Much better ‘debut’ for the new TRT. They felt like a dominant rudo group here, very strong in the sections they dominated and battling in the técnico sections. They need more matches like this, but this is a start. Valiente is still having problems since his botched dive – I think he even passed up doing it at the end, because it’s otherwise rare he’ll try the same tope twice.

Guadalajara, Monterrey, Chicago, Bobby Bonales (update: ?)

CMLL (SUN) 01/15/2012 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [Fuego en el Ring]

Rudos took 1/3. Espectrum snuck in a foul on Leon Blanco for the win.

Single fall, no time limit. Titan was about to win and Tiger pulled his mask for the DQ.
5) La Máscara & Máscara Dorada b Averno & Ephesto
Tecnicos took 1/3, clean. Mascara challenged Averno to a mask vs hair match.

Lalo Guerra, long time wrestler and recent Sunday referee in Arena Aficion, had a big retirement ceremony there on the 15th.

5) Big Neurosis, Ernesto Chavana, Tun Tun b Rico Rodriguez, Simbolo, the Beast
Hijo del Ninja got in involved, helping the teniccos. TV host/ringmaster Chavana snuck in a foul on Simbolo. Both refs were down, so TV character Mr. Grin ran out with a ref shirt to count the three.

Other News

Peste Negra beat Atlantis, Blue Panther and La Mascara last night in Puebla.

Tonight’s Arena Mexico show has Generacion Dorada vs Hijos del Averno on top and other good sounding matches on the card. It’s the last show before taking off to Japan for those going.

Atlantis, LA Park, Psicosis (CMLL) and Hijo de Rey Misterio are all scheduled for the main event of a show in Chicago this Sunday. That seems to be politically impossible, but more of these things are slipping thru of late.

Diamante says it was always a dream to make it to Japan. Diamante’s next goal is getting a shot at Terrible – and what has happened to Terrible, anyway? He hasn’t been seen since the day after he won the heavyweight title.

Rob has highlights of 04/29/11.


  • La Sombra hypes his match with Volador.
  • Porra Fresa has the final look back at the appearance count for the CMLL regulars, as well as all the singles matches in Arena Puebla this year.
  • Escoria says it’s odd to be back on the side of Joaquin Roldan and AAA.


CMLL (SUN) 01/22/2012 Arena Coliseo
1) Enrique Vera Jr. & Soberano Jr. vs Bobby Bonales & Disturbio
2) Dalis la Caribeña, Goya Kong, Marcela vs Amapola, Princesa Blanca, Princesa Sugheit
3) Hombre Bala Jr., Sangre Azteca, Super Halcon Jr. vs Arkángel de la Muerte, Loco Max, Puma King
4) Hijo del Fantasma, Metro, Stuka Jr. vs Euforia, Pólvora, Vangelis
5) Blue Panther, Brazo de Plata, La Máscara, Marco Corleone vs Kraneo, Morphosis, Olímpico, Rey Bucanero

Return to Arena Coliseo. Bobby Bonales? The original Bobby Bonales was a star of the 50s. His son, olympic medalist wrestler Daniel Aceves, has been handing out a trophy the last few years in Bonales’ name. This is a probably a third generation luchador  (like everyone else in that match) debuting, but he hasn’t seemed to use that name anywhere prior that turns up.

Update: Lineup used here is from Fuego en el Ring, because I didn’t see a lineup on (Firefox F5 refresh is so annoying.) The proper lineup has Bobby Zavala as Disturbio’s partner, which makes a lot more sense. Also, Angel Azteca in place of Sangre Azteca.

LyC (SUN) 01/22/2012 Arena Coliseo Monterrey
1) ? vs ??
2) ? vs ??
3) Gemelo Muerte I & Gemelo Muerte II vs Dranser & Scravos [Torneo de Dinastia]
4) El Ninja & Ninja Jr. vs Hijo Del Mongol Chino & Mongol Chino
5) Hombre Sin Miedo, Sangre Chicana Jr., Sobredosis vs Dralion, Gato Fantasma, Silencio

Three guys representing Promocion Cantu (Nuevo Laredo) vs Reyes del Aire in the main event. It’s hyped as a promotion war, but Hombre Sin Miedo disagrees; the Monterrey guys aren’t near his level.

CMLL (MON) 01/23/2012 Arena Puebla
1) Lestat & Milenium vs Fuerza Chicana & Siki Ozama Jr.
2) Hombre Bala Jr., Stigma, Super Halcon Jr. vs Loco Max, Puma King, Skándalo
3) Ángel Azteca Jr., Pegasso, Titán vs Cancerbero, Euforia, Raziel
4) Atlantis, Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr. vs Kraneo, Morphosis, Olímpico
5) Dragón Rojo Jr., Mr. Niebla, Último Guerrero vs Averno, Mr. Águila, Psicosis

Main event is a near random mix of rudos, all of which team all the time.

Titan back here, by demand.

Alison Evans vs Big Mama vs Lily Fighter has been added to the 02/12 IWL/DTU show. Also, the show will have two rings, a DTU “ultraviolent” one and an IWL “classic struggle”. I must’ve missed the part of the classic struggle where people put thru flaming tables.

Necro Butcher is on the XMW show on 02/19.
