CMLL (MON) 10/29Arena Puebla [Porra Fresa]
1) Ares & Centauro de Fuego b Dinámikoo & Tigre Rojo Jr. Rudos took 2/3, early falls went very quick.
2) Höruz b Cholo [lightning] Cholo dominated the match, but Horuz pulled it out with an armbar.
3) Asturiano, Metálico, Molotov vs Bobby Zavala, Disturbio, Espiritu Maligno Tecnicos took 2/3. Molotov submitted Espiritu, Metalico pinned Disturbio.
4) Dalis la Caribeña, Goya Kong, Marcela b Amapola, Mima Shimoda, Tiffany Tecnicas took 1/3.
5) Namajague, Shigeo Okumura, Tama Tonga b Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr., Hijo del Fantasma Rudos took 2/3. Tonga beat Maya to win in his debut and the best match of the night Maya had to be strechered out. Delta tried to help with that, but Tonga attacked him too.
6) Atlantis, La Máscara, Mistico DQ Averno, Felino, Mephisto Felino replaced Ephesto. Mascara pinned Averno in the first, then Mephisto pulled Mistico’s mask in the second in a disappointing match. Mistico challenged Mephisto a singles match.
Was Ephesto hurt on Sunday and I’ve forgot about it?

4) Marco Corleone, Máximo, Rush b Averno, Mephisto, Tama Tonga [CMLL TRIOS] Tama Tonga replaced Ephesto. Love Buffet came in as champs, and took falls 2/3 to keep the titles. Last week’s match was Maximo vs Averno, and this week Maximo kissed and cradled Averno to keep the titles.
Results were from radio station Canal58, which appears to be doing live PBP of Tuesday and Sunday Guadalajara shows. Satanico joined the commentators a couple times.
CMLL (TUE) 10/30/2012Arena Mexico [CMLL, CMLL Gaceta]
1) Akuma & Camorra DQ Freesbe & Oro Jr. Camorra fouled Freesbe
2) Artillero, Hooligan, Súper Comando b Camaleón, Pegasso, Sensei Camaleon replaced Angel Azteca Jr. Isis was with Hooligan. Rudos took 1/3. Sensei was strechered out with a knee injury and Pegasso was hurting (as usual.)

Delta & Maya took 1, Volador took the second with a backcracker on Atlantis, and Atlantis won the match with an Atlantida on Volador (again!) Reyes del Atlantida are champions as a team for a third time, Atlantis has won the titles three times.
The semi-official Noti AAA Facebook site confirmed Decnnis was leaving AAA, then took down that post, put up another post saying all the rumored people leaving AAA (Tiger, Wagner) were not true. That’s totally not confusing. In the comments of the last post, they say Wagner is joining going back to being an independent who works with AAA. (The difference there is if AAA controls his booking for non TV shows and what cut they need; someone the level of Wagner doesn’t need AAA for that.) As for Extreme Tiger, he’s scheduled to work tonight’s Halloween show in Arena Lopez Mateos, which would be an easy time for him to confirm or deny rumors.
Samuray del Sol was on Figure Four Daily yesterday (subscriber only) in a really good interview where he talked a lot about his career. His story about being in last year’s QPPLC contest was my favorite part. Samuray never actually signed up for the contest himself, Crazy Boy just invited him to come to Veracruz, then signed Samuray up without him knowing to get Samuray in front of AAA people. Samuray was under the impression the talent contest – at least by the final – was set up for Daga to win, saying AAA officials wanted him specifically to work with Daga since he could do the style Daga likes to do and Daga would look like a star.
Fabi Apache, Sexi Star, Lolita and Jennifer Blake are headed to WAVE for their AAA Reina de Reinas on 11/27. The Japanese promotion had previously announced the show, this is the first time the Mexican promotion has acknowledged it. The article is mostly talking about Fabi Apache’s training and previous time in Japan. WAVE also mentions Pimpinela and Fenix working on the show in a bonus match with CIMA, which hasn’t yet been announced by AAA.
oday’s big Arena Mexico match are the Reyes del Atlantida of Atlantis, Delta & Guerrero May Jr. challenging Deperadors del Aire of Volador Jr., Black Warrior and Mr. Aguila for the later’s Mexican National Trios Championship. CMLL typically does not have the last champions win trios belts back from the team which dethroned them. It’s happened a couple times with World trios titles, but never with the national belts when they’ve been with CMLL. We’d expect that to continue here under normal circumstances, but there’s some questions here. Mr. Aguila has worked an indy show with his old indy friends (and AAA wrestlers), did not show up for his match ready to go last week, and isn’t announced on any shows past today (though it’s CMLL so we don’t know that far into the future.) Black Warrior also hasn’t been a regular presence on shows, working an average of once a week this past month after lesser appearances over the summer. The title match here is as much about the teams as the belts; if the champions hold on to them, it may be a long time before we see the championship defended again.
One departure that appears to be certain is Decnnis leaving AAA. Last week’s Luchas 2000 (#643) has Decnnis explaining he’s working his remaining AAA dates but is already looking for bookings from independent promoters. He says he was thinking of leaving wrestling, but support on social media encouraged him to continue. Decnnis was complimentary towards AAA, noted he would have been working their 14 years this December, and just is looking for a change and new opportunities. It seemed like current AAA management liked him but didn’t have a role for him.
The Traumas are listed as working the opener of the 11/03 Arena Neza AAA Fusion taping, but have posted on their Facebook that they will not be working the show. No explanation as to what happened, but the guess is they did not like the idea of working as opening match guys.
AAA posted part 1 of it’s webcast with Silver King and Chessman. Silver King definitely bringing the energy of the two. Both tease the interviewer with suggestions on how to improve the website. If you are operating a fake Chessman social media profile, he is very angry with you. Silver King explaining how he’s a member of both Consejo and Maniacos turns into Silver King trashing the Bizarros. Silver King explaining why he still wears a mask turns into a discussion of his favorite soccer team, and there’s a lot of soccer talk. The segment ends with them arguing with someone off camera, and you learn Chessman definitely knows one English word.
A profile piece of the WPW school in Santa Ana, California. The article sort of claims they trained Rey Misterio Jr., John Cena and Chris Jericho, though the trainer does not actually say that in the article.
Lady Apache is off of Friday’s card, the second straight week that’s happened. She hasn’t been on a main CMLL card since 10/09. Comandante replaces her.
Robin replaces Camaleon on Sunday.

IWRG (SUN) 10/28/2012Arena Naucalpan [Black Terry Jr. (flickr), The Gladiatores]
1) Epidemia & Matrix Jr. b Araña de Plata & Seiya straight falls. Seiya’s debut here.
2) Cristal & La Sádica b Amazona & Ludark Shaitan Cristal’s debut here, and Ludark’s first match since 2010.
3) Bestia 666, Oficial 911, Oficial Fierro b el Ángel, Relampago, Trauma II Ruods took 1/3 where Angel shockingly turned on Trauma II. Angel explained he was tired of the Traumas and would be going rudo to oppose them.
4) Factor, Rayan, Spartan b Alan Extreme, Carta Brava Jr., Hijo de Pirata Morgan Alan Extreme replaced Zumbido. Factor and Pirata feuded. Comando Elite took 1/3, Factor submitted Pirata. Money thrown in the ring.
5) Negro Navarro & Trauma I b Cien Caras Jr. & Hijo de Máscara Año 2000 [IWRG IC TAG] Navarros came in as champions. Dinamitas went after Trauma I’s right knee, so much so that they were DQed in the first fall for excessive violence. The doctor told Trauma I he probably should sit the rest of this one out, but Trauma I continued. Dinamitas beat him in fall two, but Negro first submitted Mascara and then Cien to keep the titles in straight falls.
Both the Traumas are hurt going into the cage match, and Hijo de Pirata Morgan is not in good shape either. Angel’s random rudo turn does not bode well for his short term future…
There are rumors about Dr. Wagner Jr. and Extreme Tiger leaving AAA. I’m not sure where the Tiger one exactly comes from (these twotweets seem are the first I’ve seen it mentioned, though most of this type of stuff usually is passed around Facebook first.) Tiger leaving AAA would be very nonsensical. He has been stuck in the same place forever and would understandably be wanting a bigger opportunities, but there are really no big ones on the indies right nowThere’s definitely not a lot to the Wagner one. It’s a Luchas 2000 interview with Karlo Colin (always an iffy sign) where he just says he’s open to all possibilities, including leaving AAA.
On his MLW Radio podcast, Konnan mentioned Teddy Hart is suspended for his recent no-show in Monterrey. Konnan also said Teddy will have a documentary crew following him in AAA some point soon.
