CMLL (SUN) 10/14/2012 Arena Mexico [CMLL, La Catederal]
1) Magnus, Sagrado, Soberano Jr. vs Camorra, Inquisidor, Ramstein
Sagrado & Magnus replaced Metalico & Tigre Blanco. Tecnicos took 1/3.
2) Fuego, Mr. Cacao, Stuka Jr. DQ Arkángel de la Muerte, Hijo del Signo, Skándalo
Rudos were accompanied by Nitro (seemed to be walking okay) and new valet Isis. Straight falls for the tecnicos, Cacao surprising Arkangel in the first, Arkangel fouling Cacao in the second. Stuka challenged Arkangel to a match in Cacao’s promotion in November.
3) Goya Kong, León, Marcela b La Seductora, Mima Shimoda, Zeuxis
Tecnicos took 1/3 in a good women’s match.
4) Fantasy b Mercurio [mask]
Very good match. Seconds were Pequeno Olimpico & Astral. Fantasy was wearing his original mask design, while Mercurio’s torn mask revealed dyed hair. Mercurio won the first with a Destroyer, Fantasy the second with a spanish fly in slightly longer than usual opening falls. After a long and exciting third fall, Mercurio went for the Destroyer again, Fantasy escaped and used his own piledriver for the win. Mercurio is Abraham Arrieta Gonzalez, from Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, 25 years of age, 5 years a wrestler.
5) Blue Panther, Marco Corleone, Máximo DQ Negro Casas, Rey Escorpión, Tama Tonga
Maximo replaced Rush. Straight falls for the tecnicos, rudos DQed for excessive violence in the second.
6) Volador Jr. b Diamante Azul
Mije accompanied Volador won the first fall with the backcracker. Diamante Azul trapped Volador in the escuedo in the second. A long third fall included a bit where Diamante Azul german suplexed Volador and Mije at the same time. Mije, who was often involved near the end, took the worst of it. Right after, Volador took a wild backdrop to the floor, and was barely able to catch Mije when he was tossed out. Finish saw Azul german suplex Volador again, Mije break up the pin with a splash again, ref admonished Mije, Volador teased a foul, Azul covered up, Volador pulled his mask off and covered him for the win.

IWRG officially announced the annual Castle of Terror show for 11/01, a Thursday night taping.

The IWRG show did not air on AYM Sports tonight. The same listing that correctly predicted IWRG being pre-empted list it as airing this Monday at 9pm Central instead (and every Monday after that, though you should never believe next week’s listings for that sort of channel.) If it airs, I am not really sure how I’m going to get it cut/converted/uploaded before the usual Tuesday morning post update. That post may move to later in the day or maybe get split up somehow, I’ll see.

10/21 AAA Fusion lineup (Arena Lopez Mateos)

AAA Fusion (SUN) 10/21/2012 Arena Lopez Mateos
1) Astro de Plata (IWRG) & Freelance vs Dr. Cerebro & Mike Segura
2) La Braza, Nygma, Polvo de Estrellas vs La Hechicera, Mari Apache, Sexy Star
3) Aerostar, Extreme Tiger, Súper Fly vs Devil Rocker, Machine Rocker, Soul Rocker
4) Ricky Marvin & Super Crazy vs Daga & Halloween [GHC JUNIOR]
5) El Mesías, Fenix, Vampiro vs Chessman, Silver King, Último Gladiador

air date: 10/24? 10/31? We haven’t established if these are 2 or 3 weeks of tapings yet.

Ultimo Gladiador main events an Arena Lopez Mateos show! This one might draw better than the past ones.

Daga & Halloween probably aren’t going back to Japan with the belts, but it would be kind of awesome if they did. That should be a really good match, Halloween has good of land and this is the match Daga dreams about. Marvin and Crazy should be good for the occasion.

Super Fly! Exists! They needed more combinations of tecnicos to face the Infierno Rockers.

Segunda is rudas versus exoticos, a bit they haven’t done here in a while.

Opener should be really good too. Freelance earned another match here based on his Arena Naucalpan. He earned way more than that, but you’ve got to start with one. Segura & Cerbero have been good too. Astro de Plata seems to have either dropped out of IWRG or been relegated back to FILL shows, so this is a big chance for him too.

10/12 AAA TV Lineup (Tlahuelilpan)

AAA TV (FRI) 10/12/2012 Plaza de Toros Jorge Gutiérrez, Tlahuelilpan, Hidalgo [AAA]
1) Argenis, Mascarita Sagrada, Pimpinela Escarlata b Dark Dragon, Mini Charly Manson, Pasion Kristal
Pasion Kristal replaced Yuriko. After the match, Consejo attacked the tecnicos, then accused AAA of being bullies for stripping Texano of the Copa Antonio Pena. Texano also declared he was better than Mesias. Joaquin told the Consejo to leave. They would not, so Psycho Circus ran them off.
2) El Elegido & Fabi Apache b Gran Apache & Sexy Star
Tecnicos got a win back. Fabi wants a title shot, Sexy said she wouldn’t defend the title because she has Italian blood, Fabi said Sexi had other foreign objects in her via operations.
3) Monster Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown b Chessman, Daga, Silver King
Murder Clown got the win with a top rope splash on Silver.
4) El Mesías, Electroshock, Joe Lider b Máscara Año 2000 Jr., Texano Jr., Toscano
Mascara hit Electroshock with a chair and busted him open. Mesias pinned Texano with a splash.
5) el Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Psicosis, Teddy Hart b Cibernético, Jack Evans, Ozz [cage]
Perros got a win back. Cibernetico was taped to the cage for a large portion of the match, then fouled by Psicosis.

Air Date: 11/03? Maybe 11/10?

Really weird to see Texano pin Mesias when they’re setting up a Mesias/Texano match. Maybe they changed their mind. Maybe it’ll make some sense on TV. Bizarros/Perros is the only thing that seems for sure for Guerra de Titanes.

Next taping is 11/02 in Puebla.
