This was Eita’s last match in Mexico. Tercera Caida and Black Terry Jr. have Eita saying goodbye.

Hijo del Signo retained the Distrio Federal Middleweight title over Oro Azul in San Luis Potosi this Sunday.

Fantasy vs Mercurio for the masks has been signed for two Sundays from now, October 14th, in Arena Mexico. Announcing a non-main event apuesta match this far in advance is unusual for CMLL.

CMLL announced the En Busca de un Idolo tournament, the tournament won by Titan back in June, would start airing on TV this weekend. It started way back in April, so this old footage, but it’s footage which was only uploaded to CMLL’s website and not a single video was viewed by more than 3,000 people. Not many people would’ve seen it, though CMLL’s mentioned Titan as winner plenty of times. The original En Busca de un Idolo press conference mentioned there would be an accompanying show on Cadena3, and the teaser videos for the tournament teased outside the ring interviews. Neither actually happened, but perhaps it’ll be worked into the presentation of this tournament now.

CMLL.com has the wrong TV information on their show. They say Fox Sports, but it’s actually the secondary channel Fox Sports Plus (+) on Saturday at 10pm . If you watch Fox Sports, you’ll get a news show. Show is on 10 pm on Saturday and is only a half hour long, so either one match and some talking or two edited matches.

Prince Devitt talked to Fuego en el Ring about his trip to Mexico, which will wrap up after Friday’s title match with Dragon Rojo. Devitt says Dragon Rojo and Volador (who doesn’t feel bad about losing to in Guadalajara because he’s Volador) are two very different wrestlers with different strengths and weaknesses, and his job is to expose their weaknesses. Insert joke about Dragon Rojo weaknesses right here. Devitt says he hopes to challenge the winner of Ibushi/Low Ki for the IWGP Junior Heavyweight championship in November, December or whenever the promotion wants to do it.

Argenis & Argos discuss how they’re unlikely to actually get along in their Karonte Family vs Foreigner match on the LEGEND show this weekend. (And I’ve finally fixed the lineup; the Karonte team replaces the AAA guys taping the new show instead.) They team with Magnus & Dr. Karonte vs Zumbi (Brazil), Heddi Karoui (France), Dowki (Japan) and Maya Balam (who turns out to be from Guatemala!)

Voxxi has an interview with the director/producer of Tales of Masked Man, the lucha libre documentary airing on PBS stations this Friday.

Ricky Marvin says he’s coming back to Mexico in October (for MXW, not AAA), and it reads like he’s coming back full time in 2013. That would be surprising, he seems to have a pretty solid place in NOAH.

In an unsurprising development, the last announced international all star show in Colombia on 09/29 was canceled. The shows on 09/15 and 09/22 had previously been canceled due to “a new law.”

IWRG (SUN) 09/30/2012 Arena Naucalpan
1) Dragón Celestial & Serpiente de Oro vs Imposible & Infierno Kid Jr.
2) Centvrión, Dinamic Black, Saruman vs Alan Extreme, Black Terry, Temerario Infernal
3) Carta Brava Jr. (IWL), Oficial 911, Oficial Fierro vs Carta Brava Jr. (IWRG), Rayan, Spartan
4) Dr. Cerebro, el Ángel, Hijo de LA Park vs Comando Negro, Hijo del Dr. Wagner Jr., Oficial AK47
5) Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Máscara Sagrada, Veneno vs Cien Caras Jr., Factor, Hijo de Máscara Año 2000

Second match looks a lot of fun. May have the Carta Bravas on the right side – the one with the original Oficials is listed as “Carta Brava” and the opposite is Carta Brava Jr.

CMLL (TUE) 10/02/2012 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Virgo vs Magnum
2) Esfinge & Metatrón vs Bárbaro Cavernario & Ráfaga
3) Astral, Fantasy, Último Dragoncito vs Demus 3:16, Mercurio, Pierrothito
4) Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr., Valiente vs Kráneo, Mr. Águila, Olímpico
5) Atlantis, Mistico, Titán vs Averno, Pólvora, Último Guerrero

Someone doesn’t belong in that main event: Averno! That’s his first time facing Mistico. They meet again in Tijuana at the end of the month, so someone’s finally decided to let the mostly highly pushed tecnico in the promotion work with the best rudo in promotion.

Polvora can only be there because they’re either setting up a match with Titan or setting something up with the Invasors.
