CMLL (FRI) 02/10/2012 Arena Mexico [CMLL]
1) Bronco & Camorra b Leono & Soberano Jr.
Zayco, out hurt, was listed on the rudo side. Camorra took his place.
2) Diamante, Pegasso, Rey Cometa DQ Cancerbero, Euforia, Raziel
Straight fall win, though painful – Euforia fouled Cometa in the third.
3) Puma King b Super Halcon Jr. [lightning]
Puma, accompanied by UNAM’s puma mascot Goyo, won with a new backcracker variation.
4) Dark Angel, Estrellita, Goya Kong b Amapola, Princesa Blanca, Princesa Sugheit
Amapola was caught using the ropes for a pin, but Estrellita was not and that got her the win.
5) Rey Bucanero, Terrible, Tiger b Ángel de Oro, La Máscara, Valiente
6) Blue Panther, Guerrero Maya Jr., Máscara Dorada DQ Felino, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas
Guerrero Maya replaced Sombra, which they knew early enough in time to have up on radiocmll. Negro punted Panther for the DQ. Negro went to grab the microphone after the match, but just pummeled Panther more instead of talking. Eventually, Negro accepted Panther’s challenge for a hair match at Dos Leyendas.
Figure on a contract signing next Wednesday or Thursday. Hopefully no other Casas brother gets involved this time; nothing is guaranteed until they get thru that skit. This is just a strong verbal.
I’m picking Panther to win, but it’s not a sure thing. It’s unlikely CMLL would do two hair matches on the same show, so Amapola and Estrellita are probably headed to a title rematch.
Very bizarre that Zayco was listed as wrestling, when the promotion itself mentioned he would be out for months and they knew enough to not list Sombra’s name on the day of the show. No one talks to each other in CMLL.
Rob posted Santo/Shocker/LA Park vs Ultimo Guerrero/Rey Bucanero/Perro Aguayo, from 09/03/2004. A fun match!
