it takes 3

Volador Jr. vs Máscara Dorada in a lightning match: A bit disappointing. Could’ve been partly the editing, but this felt like an occasional big spot and not a lot of connective tissue. Volador has more flushed out matches with Sombra, so I’m not sure if the problem was Dorada is not Sombra (a tough standard), or if they did too much early and got really tired (they both were breathing hard for a few minutes) and decided to just do the important things, or if it was just unfortunate. There are ideas of a good match here and it was nice to protect Dorada a bit by taking three moves to put him down, but this is going to look better in the highlight packed than it did on TV.


at least this was a surprise for once

Fuego, Sagrado, Sangre Azteca vs Cancerbero, Euforia, Virus: Cancerbero matches tend to have more variety in finishes and layouts than other matches. Or at least that’s the generalization I’m going to make from this match, which had some nice bits strung together and a surprise finish that actually felt surprising. This is not a great match, but it was more interesting than your average weekly TV match fare.


Zacarias vs Marco

Blue Panther, La Máscara, Marco Corleone vs Felino, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas: Better than a lot of this feud has been of late. The first two falls being short was annoying, but they did make the Negro/Panther stuff come off as important. Marco was as good as he’s been since coming back, him and Niebla continue to play off each other well. There seems to be tiny hints of Panther and Negro switching sides in this feud, but they’re so tiny that they may just be me overreading into things.

Lady Apache replaced the often missing Estrella Magica. No confirmation on the ruda side.
3) Diamante, Fuego, Stuka Jr. b Cancerbero, Raziel, Virus
4) Marco Corleone, Máximo, Rush DQ Rey Bucanero, Terrible, Tiger
No word on the DQ.
5) Negro Casas b La Sombra [NWA WELTER]
Negro Casas is the new champion, winning with a casita. Tirantes was ref, and Negro had both Cancerbero & Zacarias as seconds (Sombra had Maximo), and it’s possible there may have been interference.

That’s a surprising title change. It’s unexpected Sombra would lose, it’s a unusual they’d do it in Arena Puebla, and it’s odd time for Negro Casas to pick up a title right when he should be heading to a hair match with Blue Panther.

Perros del Mal has a taping tonight in Arena Aficion. (Last week’s Perros del Mal show seemed to say it’d start airing Thursday.) The main event was scheduled to be Garza, Perro, Toscano, Texano, X-Fly and a mystery man for X-Fly’s national heavyweight championship. Perros del Mal had leaked word that Latin Lover would be the mystery man. He will not be now; Perros del Mal says Latin Lover has an elbow injury. KrisZ noticed Lover wrestled last weekend in Gimnasio Nuevo Leon, which could be where the injury happened.

CMLL’s Valentine’s Day show is headlined by TRT vs Tercia Sensacion.

Mesias will replace Latin in the match. That doesn’t quite work, Mesias is not eligible to win the championship not being Mexican. Mesias is actually the reason why the Perros have this title. It was part of the title unification tournament to create the AAA World Mega Heavyweight championship. Since Mesias couldn’t actually challenge for back then in a tournament match, it stayed with the loser of the match, Charly Manson. Manson dropped it to X-Fly which gets us back to today. X-Fly’s chances of keeping the title tonight seems low.

NJPW announced Prince Devitt would be in Mexico from March 15 to “early April” (off NJPW shows thru April 8th). He’ll probably debut on the March 16th Arena Mexico show.

Danny Boy & Gran Apache II vs Mohicano III & Ray Richard has been added to the Valerie Office part of X-Project this weekend.

Rob has highlights of 06/28 & 07/05 CMLL C3.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.
