CMLL (SUN) 01/29/2012 Arena Coliseo [CMLL, La Catedral]
1) Bengala & Fuego b Camorra & Cholo
Ref was Pompin. Fuego replaced Robin, who was supposed to be in Acapulco challenging for a local title (so no idea why they needed such an obvious last minute sub.) First time Fuego has been in an Arena Coliseo opener in five years. Tecnicos took 1/3.
2) Bam Bam, Eléctrico, Último Dragoncito vs Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Olímpico, Pierrothito
Ref was Rodolfo. Electrico replaced Shockercito. Rudos took 1/3.
3) Cancerbero, Hijo del Signo, Virus b Molotov, Pegasso, Rey Cometa
Ref was Bestia Negra. Rudos took 2/3, Virus’s motocicleta beating cometa.
4) Máximo, Titán, Triton b Felino, Pólvora, Shigeo Okumura
Ref was Pompin. Tecnicos took 1/3, Maximo kiss cradle of Polvora and Triton moonsault on Okumura.
5) Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto b La Máscara, La Sombra, Valiente
Mephisto distracted the ref so Averno could foul Mascara to take the first. Mascara and Sombra beat Ephesto & Mephisto in the second. Mascara toped Averno in the third, but Valiente’s tope took out Mascara by accident, and the rudos submitted Sombra for the win.
Members of the Black Eyed Peas were in the front row. Sadly, Mr. Aguila was not on the show.
Recaps tomorrow, but Tercera Caida’s twitter reports Chico Che defeated Black Terry for his hair in a controversial finish and Trauma II took Iron Love’s hair over in AULL.
Shocker & Magnus were in a four way apuesta match today in La Laguna. I’m thinking neither lost.
