Referee was Edgar. Tecnicos took 2/3.

Raziel won in 7:34. Said to be a very good match.
3) Dalis la Caribeña, Goya Kong, Marcela b Amapola, Princesa Blanca, Tiffany
Tecnicas took 1/3. This time, Marcela won legally with a Michinoku Driver on Amapola. No follow up to last week’s story.

Tecnicos 2/3. Cometa’s unmasked debut, beating Puma with a 450 splash and taking his mask after teh match.

Rudos take 1/3. Dragon Rojo beat Devitt with a Dragon Bomb to set up a title match last week.

Rudos take 1/3. Terrible pinned Rush in a bit of revenge for last week.

Patricia Barcenas, a paraolympic bronze medalist in weightlifting, was honored during the show.

so far on TV:
el Mundo de Lucha Libre was a rerun
CMLL Fox aired Cometa/Puma and the Mexico/Japan trios
CMLL Televisa aired (and will air in the US) Rush/Terrible and the Mistico/Devitt trios
CMLL 52MX aired the top 3 from Sunday, but started late due to a prior programming going long (no problem, plenty of reruns)

AAA has now announced the Fusion TVC Deportes taping on their website. Nothing more revealed, though it does sound like a new ongoing show and not a one off or anything like that. They write “Nueva Era” a lot. Televisa should not have any rights on an AAA show on TVC Deportes, so AAA will be free to market this show internationally however they’d like. If an AAA TV show is airing in the US any time soon, it’ll be this taping.

Today is a Quien Pinta Por La Corona weekend. AAA is in Campeche today for evaluations, with a show tomorrow.

CMLL says a “Road To The 80th Anniversary” feature will start this week on Cadena3. So CMLL can do short pieces, just not about their current wrestlers.

Croncias Y Leyendas asks who was more popular: Octagon or Mistico? (Mistico.)

LuchaWorld has a new edition of the LuchaWorld podcast


CMLL (FRI) 09/28/2012 Arena Mexico
1) Leono & Metálico vs Taurus & Zayco
2) Fantasy, Niño de Acero, Shockercito vs Mercurio, Pequeño Violencia, Pequeño Warrior
3) Blue Panther, Máscara Dorada, Rey Cometa vs Puma King, Sangre Azteca, Vangelis
4) Máximo vs Taichi [lightning]
5) Atlantis, Diamante Azul, Mistico vs Euforia, Rey Escorpión, Último Guerrero
6) Prince Devitt vs Dragón Rojo Jr. [NWA MIDDLE]
Devitt is champion.

Devitt will try for his third defense, first in Mexico. I expect Devitt to retain. Dragon Rojo is still CMLL Middleweight champ, so he’ll go home with a belt regardless.

Ultimo Guerrero & Rey Escorpion are teaming again, so perhaps that storyline can restart after being put aside for thelast couple weeks. In fact, it’ll be interesting to see who Dragon Rojo’s second is for the title match.

Maximo & Taichi is a rematch of their hair match.

Mascara Dorada returns from Mexico to join in the Cometa/Puma King feud. Averno returns to…enjoy a nice evening at home, I guess.

Opener is Taurus’ debut, the last of the Gen12 guys to debut in Mexico City.

LLA (SUN) 09/30/2012 Gimansio Neuvo Leon
1) Gato Fantasma & Peewee vs Pedro Navajas & Vudu
2) Golden Boy, Rey Demonio Jr., Silencio vs Angel Dorado Jr., Potro Jr., Sky
3) Mascara Puprura, Rey Hechicero, Tigre Unviersitario vs Bengali, Difunto I, Monje Negro Jr.
4) Máximo & Super Porky vs Felino & Mr. Niebla
5) Último Guerrero vs MisticoAtlantis [LLA AZTECA]
Ultimo Guerrero is the champ.

No one has ever successfully defended this title. If that continues, there’s a Mistico goes home with his first title. Atlantis seems much more likely.

indy (SUN) 10/14/2012 Arena Lopez Mateos
1) ? vs ??
2) ? vs ??
3) Esther Moreno & Rossy Moreno vs Keira & La Vaquerita
4) Mr. Potro vs Epitafio [AULL HEAVY]
Mr. Potro is champ
5) Eterno, Oriental, Super Crazy vs Negro Navarro, Trauma I, Trauma II
6) Dr. Wagner Jr. & Hijo del Dr. Wagner Jr. vs Canek & Canek Jr.

Billed as Super Crazy’s return from Japan, and the first time for Wagner/son vs Canek/son. 100% chance Canek brings up the UWA title before the night is over.
