CMLL (SUN) 02/05/2012 Arena Coliseo [CMLL]
1) Camaleón & Höruz b Apocalipsis & Inquisidor
2) Hooligan, Nitro, Skándalo b Hombre Bala Jr., Starman, Super Halcon Jr.
Rudos took 1/3, clean.
3) Misterioso Jr., Namajague, Shigeo Okumura b Black Warrior, Sagrado, Sangre Azteca
Namajague’s debut. Black Warrior is said to be returning from an (unspecified, previously unmentioned) injury. Namajague pinned Sangre to get the win.
4) Blue Panther, Hijo del Fantasma, La Máscara b Felino, Terrible, Volador Jr.
Volador was dressed like Super Maquina. Or maybe Quarterback.
5) Marco Corleone, Máximo, Rush b Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto
Maximo’s trio won and became the latest group to challenge Averno for a title shot. Averno continues to refuse.

CMLL announced Dos Leyendas will take place on 03/02. That’s three weeks earlier than normal. I am not sure why. It does mean CMLL’s got to be announcing a main event in the next two weeks. Matches specifically hyped in the last few weeks

  • Blue Panther vs Negro Casas
  • Atlantis vs Ultimo Guerrero (or, Atlantis/Delta vs Ultimo Guerrero/Dragon Rojo)
  • Estrellita vs Amapola
That doesn’t include the long running feuds with nothing particularly going on (Averno vs La Mascara), the people who seem to partly exist only to lose their mask (Psicosis!) and whatever they feel like making up at a moment’s notice (see: Doble T vs Porky/Maximo last year.) And a cage match, a cage match is always possible.
Somehow, Black Terry beat Chico Che tonight in IWRG’s Guerra de Sexos. Black Terry wasn’t even in the match, which normally makes it tough to defeat someone. I hate cage matches.
El Hijo del Santo held his annual tribute to to El Santo at the Santo statue. CMLL referee Babe Richard and retired luchador Rudy Reyna were noted as present. Also there was Hijo del Santo’s son, who’s now noticeable taller than his father. Cronicas Y Leyendas posts the Box Y Lucha cover from Santo’s death.

Rob has highlights of mid November 96 AAA.

SuperLuchas #448 has X-Project and Konnan complaining about Psicosis using that name.

A column on the Gladiatores complains about how the Tijuana commission is blocking a long running promoter from running the Auditorio.

First time the three Oficial Elites ave teamed up in trios. Canis Lupus had disappeared from here for a while. The Piratas, the current tag team champs, have been busy elsewhere.
