Mongol Chino picked up the first win in this tournament.
5) Dralion, Gato Fantasma, Silencio b Hombre Sin Miedo, Sangre Chicana Jr., Sobredosis
Monterrey team won in three falls. Core, Rey Escorpion (not that one) and Black Star, all from Reynosa and representing the Fear Factory promotion, ran in to attack. It seemed like they were there for both teams, but quickly allied with the Nuevo Laredo/Cantu team to beat up the hometown tecnicos. The rest of the LyC roster ran off the outsiders. Luchadors from Reynosa ran in, seemingly to attack both teams, but actually allying with the Nuevo Laredo/Cantu trio to fight the Monterrey tecnicos.

LyC also has a promo from the Fear Factory crew.

Tonight’s CMLL show is highlighted by the Cancerbero vs Tuareg rematch. Main event is Peste Negra vs Porky, Mascara and Angel de Oro.

Promotiora Zatarain is a Baja California Sur promotion which runs AAA shows every couple months or so. Their next show is February 3 and was scheduled to include Drago, but they’re saying Drago is out three weeks with face burns. The story AAA told them is they were experimenting with a half mask which would shoot off fireworks, and the fireworks instead exploded in Drago’s face. That sounds tremendously painful. AAA’s sending a replacement tecnico to this show.

Aeroboy explains the match he lost where he’s retired from hardcore matches again will just be voided by the commission due to interference, but he’ll end up in a mask match with either Ciclope, Drastik Boy, or both. Hooray killing stipulations.

Rob has video of one two different Tijuana riots, Mascara Dorada being Mascara Dorada, and Konnan hanging out with friends.

LuchaMania Monterrey reskinned their message board and launched a related blog.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.

Maybe they couldn’t get a cage? Judas el Traidor is the obvious favorite.

TxT (SAT) 02/25/2012 Gimnasio Juan de la Barrera
1) Esther Moreno & Rossy Moreno vs Ludark Shaitan & Sexy Lady
2) Mascarita Dorada & Mascarita Sagrada vs Lobito & Mini Cibernetico
3) Negro Navarro, Trauma I, Trauma II vs Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Pirata Morgan, Pirata Morgan Jr.
4) El Dandy, Fuerza Guerrera, Scorpio Jr. vs ?, ??, ???
5) El Hijo Del Santo & Villano IV vs Angel Blanco Jr. & El Hijo del Solitario

Poster here. This is very interesting, because Santo was all but saying they’d do the Santo/Solitario/Blanco mask match this February and that is not it. Even this week’s Luchas 2000 hinted in that direction, though that could’ve been a fake out. This group is not doing as well as they hoped.

There’s a bit of change of direction to get younger guys on the card. The mystery people in the semimain are “nueva promesas”, which probably mean someone’s trainees (an odd choice for a semimain.)  Negro Navarro teaming with his sons means he won’t be a referee; Black Terry takes that spot.

01/21-22 lucha videos

As you might have heard, the owners of Megaupload were arrested. Other file locker sites have freaked. Some (filesonic!) are publicly saying they’re not accepting uploads, which others (Multiupload!) are just not working. There are sites which appear to be working just fine, and I’ll be using them instead. Files may go down quicker, so grab the links while you can. Something’s probably wrong, bug me about it in the comments.

While I’m thinking of it – would people prefer single match links over complete show links? I have both for anything that goes up on YouTube. I usually store them as full shows but that may not be the most convenient way for everyone else.
