Marco pinned Warrior, Escorpion and UG with a plancha. UG was not happy.
9) Rush & Terrible b Ángel de Oro & Psicosis [natl pi, quarterfinal]
Rush & Terrible used their big moves for the win.
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.

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.

Lineup

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.

  1. The opener for Dos Leyendas looks like such a fun match,sucha unique group of rudos who will be perfect for that group of flyers,should be some insanity. Overall the whole show looks nice.

  2. Love the lineup for Dos Leyendas. First time in quite a while CMLL has actually delivered with a lineup that feels like a major show. Two big matches and the rest of the show full of matches that on paper look like they can be tremendous if the guys work hard.

    If I had to make one switch I’d probably insert Mascara Dorada for La Mascara and move La Mascara down into Porky’s spot so he can be opposite Averno. Porky has been really terrible lately and will only slow that match down.

    I’m expecting Alex Koslov to make an appearence on this show.

  3. 52MX has top 3 from Sunday. The Panther/Negro trios went 5:13, including intros, replays, and post match.

    CMLL LATV replay of the week: 10/11 taping, aired on 10/15.

    Gala had the tournament (and so should next week). Fox had the top 3 otherwise.

    C3 had the return of Momentos Estrellas!

    AAA appears to be airing selected matches from the last couple of tapings.

  4. Oh, and AYM snuck in another hour of the PRI show after Sobre el Ring. The Flecha & Primero matches were repeats (though I caught the end of that one, so I’ll put it up.) They also aired the women’s match, but the minis one seems lost to the AYM film vault for the moment.
