5) Daga b Super Crazy, Joe Lider [X-LAW JH]
Davey Richards was earlier announced as not being present (and elsewhere, having suffeblack a concussion.) Both Crazy and Lider arrived to challenge Daga, with Crazy putting his X-LAW title on the line. This was the match, with Crazy losing first and Daga beating Lider to win the title.

1) Dark Side, Epidemia, Heavy Boy b Angelical, Crossfire, Stukita
2) Mohicano III & Ray Richard b Danny Boy & Gran Apache II
Lots of bleeding.
3) Drako b Tony Rodriguez, Sádico, Kaientai, Icaro [XProject CHAMP]
Drako, representing OMEGA won the new title over luchador from KBW (Sadico), NWG (Tony Rodriguez), NGX (Kaientai), Super X (which apparently still exists?, Icaro)
4) Cerebro Maligno, Crazy Star, Dr. Cerebro, Epitafio, Herejía, Kansuke, Rey del Krimen b Destello Negro, El Abuelito, Halcón 2000, Hijo de Clímax, Latin Star, Marvilla Negra, Maverick [Copa Cesar]
Impromptu 7 v 7 match, featuring members of Valerie Office vs “MTA”, most of the rudo ATM group from IWL having jumped promotions (including Trolli!) Match came down to Latin Star vs the Cerebros and Kansuke. Star defeated Maligno, defeated Kansuke, but the Doctor stopped him for the loss.
5) Vanely & Yuki Star b Big Mama & La Felina
6) Fenix (AAA), Freelance, Sugi San b Dark Dragon, Samurai del Sol, Zema Ion
Fenix got Dark Dragon with the double knees to the face. Money thrown in the ring after the match.
7) El Mesías b Blue Demon Jr., Sami Callihan
Sami was the surprise wrestler. Traumas showed up on the ramp to distract Sami (playing off the earlier show) and Mesias took advantage, spearing Sami thru a table. Demon couldn’t break up the pin in time.
8) LA Park, La Parka Jr., Super Parka b Raven, Super Crazy, Tommy Dreamer
Raven and Dreamer had a falling out in the match. LA Park defeated Raven, ending racism forever. Lots of violence, lots of bleeding.

I know these shows were recorded and I believe there is a plan for DVD release. Hopefully we’ll hear more about that down the line. No next show announced.

IWRG (SUN) 02/19/2012 Arena Naucalpan [The Gladiatores]
1) Astro de Plata & Astro Rey Jr. b Pacto Negro & The Mummy
first main show appearance for the Mummy, who earlier showed up on the Christmas Day Wagner promotions show.
2) Gemelo Fantastico I, Gemelo Fantastico II, Violento Jack b Charly Madrid, Dinamic Black, Golden Magic
Violento Jack used a piledriver setting up the win.
3) Carta Brava Jr. b Alan Extreme [IWRG IC Light]
Carta took the first, Alan took the second. Alan tried for a top rope powerbomb in the third, Carta reversed to a ‘rana, then added a splash for the win to keep his title.
4) Eterno b Centvrión [IWRG IC WELTER]
Violento Jack (Eterno) and Freyser (Centvrion) were the seconds. Eterno won the first, Centvrion won the second with a super Styles Clash. Seconds started getting involved in the third. Eterno got to the ropes a crab, then kept stopping the ref’s hand from hitting the mat for a third count. Eterno dived onto Freyser, ref watched that and not Violento piledriving Centviron, and that was enough for Eterno to win and keep his title.
5) Cien Caras Jr., Hijo de Máscara Año 2000, Máscara Año 2000 Jr. DQ Angelico, Texano Jr., Toscano
Capos pinned Texano Jr. & Toscano using the ropes in the first. They blamed it on Angelico, who had done a dive and not made it back. Angelico aimed for Mascara Jr. in the second and hit Texano, which upset his partners more. Angelico probably should’ve just called it a night right then, but he went onto accidentally knock off Mascara Ano 2000 Jr.’s mask while trying to submit him, and was called for the DQ. Texano, Toscano, and Mascara beat up Angelico and declared they were bringing El Consejo to Arena Naucalpan.

X-Fly won XMW’s title, defeating Dance Boy in an elimination match that also included Necro Butcher. Halloween speared Dance Boy to set up his ally’s pin.

Averno losing the CMLL trios titles on Sunday means he has no more titles. It was clear he was willing to lose all of his championships in the ring before leaving to CMLL and almost certainly would. It took a lot longer to get there. If that title change had happened last Fall, I’d figure that meant Averno had gotten a start date in FCW. Now, that’s still possible, but CMLL’s obviously high on Rush, Maximo and Marco as a trio and they could be just winning the trios title for nothing to do with Averno.

What it does mean is Averno could leave at any point without much notice. Right now, I don’t have any upcoming matches for Averno except for a CMLL show in Arena Aficion next month (and no word on this Sunday at Coliseo yet.) His schedule has been way down this month; just the trios title program, the appearance in the incredible pairs tournament, and the two big outside shows (the PRI one and Parque Interlomas they’ve been pushing hard on TV.) No Guadalajara or Puebla trips, only the one Friday night appearance, no Tuesday shows…

AAA’s confirmed it’s upcoming TV taping schedule

02/23: Arena Naucalpan
03/02: Toluca
03/11: Ecatepec – taking the place of Leon.
03/18: Zapopan – Rey de Reyes.

That still doesn’t quite make sense unless they’re getting pre-empted this week or next. As is, Naucalpan will have to be turned around in a two days and Toluca will have to be edited and sent out to the regional networks in a matter of hours to air on 03/03. Even if they can manage that, they would have to post produce Ecatepec in negative one days.

The Huracan Ramirez who wrestled in Arena Coliseo Guadalajara show – who had previously wrestled as Huracan Ramirez Jr. on Dantes’ shows – says he’s going to tour India with Blue Demon and El Hijo del Santo around Easter.

El Pancracio has interviews with the Murcileago Imperials and Rey Dinamico.

Rob has highlights of 07/26/11 Arena Naucalpan.

Not sure how they got to Rafaga vs Stuka. Maybe Stuka was annoyed with Rafaga’s run-ins too?

This one’s listed as a TV taping too, but maybe all the Sunday ones are and I’m not picking up on it. Not sure which Rivera has a Gym here, but I hope they arrive by bus.

6 thoughts to “X-Project results, IWRG champs keep their titles, Averno”

  1. Averno leaving now makes a lot of sense, since they just made some new signings in WWE, and will probably purge the roster a bit after WM28. Some FCW guys will move up, and Averno may hide out in FCW until ol’ Mistico heals up.

  2. Is there still talk of WWE doing this cruiserweight show, as was reported a few weeks back? The claim was that they had contacted a number of people regarding the show idea.

  3. I’m just assuming AAA Regional TV will be a repeat of Zumpango this week so the National TV can air part 2 of Zumpango and they’ll be back on track next weekend. Although in a perfect world the Regional show airs more of either Chilpancingo or Guanajuato from earlier in the year since many people missed those full shows.

    Gym Rivera sounds like Skayde’s gym since Guerrero Mixteco is involved. I hope that matches makes TV or even better – BlackTerryCam!

    X-Project shows look like a friggin’ marathon of fun wrestling. BTJr put up about 7 pages of great pictures. I cannot wait to see the high flying trios match from show #2!

    I don’t think CMLL divided up the National Incriebles tournament properly. This week’s groups are really weak compared to last week. Corleone/Guerrero seem like obvious winners and if there’s any swerve it’d have to be Rush/Terrible but I can’t see Atlantis/UG not being in the same match at H2L. What I’m curious to see is if they set up Estrellita vs Amapola based on the segunda. It’s not really an important match so it’d fit nicely into the 4th match at H2L and CMLL has done a show like this before where they had a women’s midcard hair match and a mask/hair match headlining (Aug ’08). I just can’t see how much longer they can drag this feud out. Maybe a lightning match at H2L to set up the hair match the following week?

  4. @Rob: new working theory: CMLL is doing Dos Leyendas so early because – much like in September – they want to do a month of Big Shows. (That worked out so great in October and November.) Estrellita/Amapola to come, that tag title match if Dragon Rojo is healthy, maybe Virus/Loco…

  5. Agreed with Rob, I can’t wait to see the footage from the X-Project show.

    I think we’ll see Averno in AAA or even the Santo shows before he shows up in the WWE. If nothing else, he can leverage a deal between the two to get a few good payoffs before WWE gives him the call. One has to think that if they are truly setting up some sort of cruiserweight show for the network, Averno could fit into those plans pretty easily (and others as well).
