IWRG (THU) 01/26/2012 Arena Naucalpan [Estrellas del Ring, the Gladiatores]
1) Kaving & Pacto Negro b Matrix Jr. & Volaris
2) Oficial Factor & Oficial Rayan b Gemelo Fantastico I & Gemelo Fantastico II
Oficial Factor debuted, replacing Oficial Spartan.
3) Alan Extreme, Black Terry, Kortiz b Golden Magic, Tony Rivera, Tritón
4) Negro Navarro, Saruman, Veneno b Carta Brava Jr., Hijo de Máscara Año 2000, Hijo de Pirata Morgan
Carta Brava and Sauramn feuded. Saruman beat Carta and challenged for his lightweight title. Match should go next week.
5) Angelico, Centvrión, Toscano b Cien Caras Jr., Eterno, Máscara Año 2000 Jr.
Toscano showed up! Estrellas del Ring recap refers to Eterno as “Rey de Facebook”. Rudos took the first. In the second, Centvrión attempted a moonsault over their corner post onto Eterno, but got no distance and landed chest first on the post. The match stopped, with everyone checking on him and taking him away. Tecnicos lost 3 on 2.

Today’s CMLL show is main evented by Marco trying to keep his winning streak, against a team including the returning Terrible. Blue Panther hopes Negro Casas finally signs for the hair match, not caring about the date. Los Guerreros, in hyping their feud with Reyes del Atlantida, mention that Dragon Rojo is doubtful to wrestle tonight. The leg injury that he’s been dealing with late got worse in Puebla and hasn’t gotten better yet.

Perros del Mal started to hype a mystery luchador appearing on their 02/14 show in Arena Aficion, with people in the know saying it was a former members of Perros del Mal who’s better know with feuding with them. That description could fit Shocker or Latin Lover. Perros del Mal have since started to specifically tease Latin Lover showing up. Latin Lover probably could generate some good attention and business for this group, but not in Arena Aficion. That building has been full the last couple of times Perros del Mal has visited for TV and there’s no reason to think it wouldn’t be again even without Latin. It’s only a 2000 seat building, which wouldn’t be a lot of room for Latin to make a difference. Latin coming in will greatly entertain some people, but it doesn’t seem to make any sense for this building – perhaps they’ll move it to a larger building.

An AAA press release hyping Daga’s official debut post-QPPC win (and apparently as Daga this time) mentions his opponents as Parka, Dark Dragon and Tito. No Escoria, so they did fix that oddness.

Rob has highlights of early October 1995 AAA.


  • Dragon Rojo playing American football. Wearing the kilt over his football pants is the best.
  • Rocky Santana and Coco Amarillo are feuding to set up a hair match.
  • GALLI is running on Friday and Saturday this weekend. I’m going to at least the Friday show.

  1. Black Terrys photos show Oficial Spartan instead of Ofical Rayan, but even the official IWRG website has it wrong.

  2. I actually do have something to say, now that I read the piece again.

    thecubsfan, you said that it’s not a good idea to bring him into a building that will always sell out anyways, but you have to remember that this will be a surprise appearance. At this point nobody knows for sure who it will be. If Latin Lover does appear, that will generate interest and awareness of his presence in the group, for his next appearance that may be in a venue that needs a boost in ticket sales.

    In any case, the fact that your business is doing well does not mean you don’t keep trying to make it better. In order to keep filling the house you gotta keep the fans interested.
