10) Rush & Terrible b Marco Corleone & Último Guerrero [natl pi, semifinal]
Terrible top rope splash on Marco ended a dominant night for the winning pair. They face Niebla & Atlantis next week.
X-Project has a video from Davey Richards, from the day of the show, where he talks about his concussion and inability to make it there.
The Sobre el Ring video
Tonight is the next TxT show. The (somewhat unofficial) stip is if Santo & Villano IV beat Hijo del Solitario & Angel Blanco Jr., they’ll have a 2 masks vs 2 masks match next time out. If the rudos win, it’ll be a triangle match without Villano IV. I guess this might depend on how much Villano IV really wants to put his mask on the line!
Tercera Caida hosts say everything is fine.

CMLL (FRI) 03/02/2012 Arena Mexico
***Dos Leyendas 2011: Salvador Luttertoh & Bobby Bonales***
1) Fuego, Titán, Triton vs Misterioso Jr., Namajague, Rey Escorpion
2) Ángel de Oro, Super Porky, Valiente vs Averno, Mr. Águila, Olímpico
3) Ayumi vs Marcela [lightning]
4) Diamante Azul, La Máscara, Marco Corleone vs Rey Bucanero, Último Guerrero, Volador Jr.
5) Atlantis & Mr. Niebla vs Rush & Terrible [natl pi, final]
6) Blue Panther vs Negro Casas [hair]
Tickets run from 500 ($39US) down to 40 pesos ($3US). That’s less than the Anniversary show (600 top) , but a bit more than last year’s Dos Leyendas (450). My attendance guess is 8,250. That’s a good number for current CMLL, but there’s no sense they’re pulling in casual fans.
Rush & Terrible are slight favorites.
Diamante Azul is in a higher spot than Metro usually got on these shows, but it may be the new normal for him.
Really good opener! Show up early.
