11/09-12 lucha times


== AAA ==

AAA-Televisa: The cage match, for sure The Psychos vs Chessman, Daga, Silver trios match and Elegido & Fabi vs Masetro de Maestros & Sexi remain from the last taping.

AAA-TVC: Title tournament match is an easy pick, and probably the Lider & Mesias vs Chessman & Daga.

== CMLL ==

Galavision/Televisa: back on regular time? Hasn’t changed yet! Ultimo Guerrero vs Rey Escorpion headlines.

FOX: Guessing Women and Tonga/Terrible/Tiger vs Atlantis/Sombra/Rush

52MX: Azul/Sombra/Shocker vs Rojo/Tonga/Volador to set up Azul vs Tonga next week.

C3: Mephisto/Tonga/Terrible vs Atlantis/Panther/Azul

GDL: Minis cage match! And maybe some other stuff.

EstrellaTV (Puebla): Atlantis, La Mascara, Mistico vs Averno, Felino, Mephisto main event.

El Luchador: “The mission will take the luchadors into a maximum security prision – except Shocker, who will have to rush Leslie to the emergency room. Meanwhile, the growing fame of Dragon Lee provokes jealousy from his partner, Bucanero tries to start a new life, and Felino will have the chance to fight along side his children for the first time.”

En Busca de un Idolo: No idea where we are, or if it’s still airing, but it’s listed as on Friday and Saturday nights.

Terra: Dorada vs Polvora! Tonga vs Azul! Me watching a Bears game (or more likely driving to a Bears game for most of this), you telling how great it’s going to look next week.

== Other ==

IWRG-TVC Deportes: Castle of Terror, maybe? Not actually on the schedule (and you can find the show on YouTube already.)

IWRG-AYM Sports: TITLE TOURNAMNET. I don’t think I can do this, and I think I’d be failing you, the 12 people reading this website, but I’d avoid spoilers for this show and find out the results on Monday night if I could.

ACM: Maybe the AAA vs locals match?

DTU Fifth Anniversary, Dragon Rojo in FantasticaMania, Llaves & Candados calling it a year

Tonight’s Arena Naucalpan is a rather calm show in between more newsworthy shows. Main event is Angel, Electroshock, and Trauma I versus Junior Dinimitas Mascara Ano 2000 Jr., Cien Caras Jr. and Hijo de Mascara Ano 2000. The Angel rudo turn on the Traumas has been ignored since it happened, but we should know more about it today. In the semimain, the Comando Elite team up with the Cerberos and Trauma II.

Besides the AAA Fusion and AAA TV lineup, all I’ve got left is news from Tercera Caida:

Halloween’s broken ribs will cause him to miss Friday’s AAA TV card in Puebla. Gran Apache will replace him, like Halloween replaced Gran Apache back at Heroes Inmoratles. It’s still listed as a mixed tag team title match.

DTU announced their fifth anniversary show will be five shows in five states
11/07: Arena Queretaro
11/08: Salon La Carreta, San Luis Potosi – though there’s a poster up for 11/20 on their Facebook.
11/09: Arena Roberto Paz, Guadalajara
11/11: Arena Aficion
11/15: Arena Lopez Matoes

DTU is ambitious.

Dragon Rojo and Rey Escorpion,  the guests for the show, said they’d soon have a surprise third and a name for their trio. Dragon Rojo mentioned in passing that he’d be defending his title (or titles) during FantasticaMania.

In other news, Llaves & Candados sent out a press release saying they’d see the fans again in 2013. That’s a very quiet way of canceling the Perros vs Garza show scheduled for 11/25 (as well as a December show they were hinting at.)

Yesterday was the 60th anniversary of El Santo vs Black Shadow, the most important match in the history of lucha libre. It set the mold for every mask match that came after, and it’s success caused EMLL promoters to build Arena Mexico to allow for larger gates.

Arena Coliseo Guadalajara announced a Eros & Leo vs Infierno & In Memoriam mask/hair vs mask/hair apuesta match for next Sunday. In Memoriam lost his mask a couple months ago, and Leo lost his hair just back in July.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.



IWRG FILL (TUE) 11/13/2012 Arena Naucalpan
1) Mercenario, Principe Infernal, Skull Metal vs Caballero Cid, Driger, Oscurio
2) Alas de Acero, Atomic Star, Extreme Boy vs Infierno Kid, Radical, Súper Black
3) Fly Star, Seiya, Serpiente de Oro vs Blue Monsther, Power Bull, Ranchero

FILL trainees vs Gimnasio Fuerza Konkreto (Fuerza Guerrera)

There are other mispellings on the poster, so hopefully no one intends to spell their name “Flehyzeer”. This show probably will air because of the AAA TV taping.

CMLL (TUE) 11/13/2012 Arena Mexico
1) Metatrón & Oro Jr. vs Espanto Jr. & Herodes Jr.
2) Astral, Bam Bam, Pequeño Halcón vs Demus 3:16, Pequeño Olímpico, Pequeño Warrior
3) Fuego, Stuka Jr., Triton vs Hijo del Signo, Shigeo Okumura, Vangelis
4) Blue Panther, Máscara Dorada, Valiente vs Niebla Roja, Pólvora, Rey Escorpión
5) Ángel de Oro vs Negro Casas [lightning]
6) Atlantis & Diamante Azul vs Tama Tonga & Terrible [CMLL TAG]
Atlantis & Diamante Azul are champions

Negro Casas said he thought they should do the next Angel de Oro/Negro Casas match on a Friday. Poor Negro Casas.

Bam Bam is back! Again! Maybe!

indy (MON) 11/19/2012 Arena Queretaro
1) Brujo Maya, Rey Maya, Thor vs Crazzy Latino, Full Back, Onix
2) Neurosis & Star Tron vs Brillante Azul & Silver Drago
3) Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro vs Fuego Latino & Pequeno Otomi
probably not a 3 on 2, but specific Oficials not specified
4) Cerebro Negro & Dr. Cerebro vs Trauma I & Trauma I
5) Canek & Canek Jr. vs Dr. Wagner Jr. & Hijo del Dr. Wagner Jr.

A Canek vs Wagner rematch. If Wagner’s falling out with AAA means Canek is in the ring more often, then AAA really needs to make good with Wagner for the sake of humanity.

11/15 AAA TV Lineup (Naucalpan)

AAA TV (THU) 11/15/2012 Arena Naucalpan
1) Mascarita Dorada & Mascarita Sagrada vs Mini Charly Manson & Mini Histeria
2) Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro vs Devil Rocker, Machine Rocker, Soul Rocker
3) Monster Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown vs Máscara Año 2000 Jr., Silver King, Toscano
4) El Mesías & Vampiro vs Chessman & Texano Jr.
5) Dr. Wagner Jr. vs LA Park

Air Date: 11/24. This new taping means Puebla is a one show taping, and this is probably the same. There was no mention of a taping in Villahemorsa on TV this week, even though I could’ve sworn I saw that mentioned by people who were watching the show. (They didn’t mention Naucalpan, so maybe I should’ve just ignored the whole thing.) If Villahermosa doesn’t exist, then this turns into a two week taping. It’ll all come out in the wash.

This is also the third Naucalpan taping this year. It’ll also be the 4th AAA TV taping (Neza, Puebla, Naucalpan, DF) in a 15 days period where ever location is a 2 hour drive from Arena Lopez Mateos. Maybe they really should’ve just bought Arena Naucalpan and saved themselves the gas money. (They should never actually do this.) AAA usually runs on Friday nights, but are instead on the more regular Thursday nights. IWRG has a FILL show on Tuesday night that’ll fill the normal TVC Deportes spot.

Chance of main event getting to the beer cooler: 1000000000000000000%. Wagner vs Park could be a MOTYC or annoying or both at the same time. I don’t think the chances of a finish are strong but everything lead up to it will be strong.

Bigger question: no sign of Jarrett or anyone TNA wise on TV so far. They seemed headed to LA Park vs Jeff Jarrett, but no Jarrett on TV in what should be the build up to that match. Meanwhile Dr. Wagner Jr. has gone from complaining about not being in a big spotlight to getting a big spotlight match vs LA Park, and, at least as of the last Fusion taping, LA Park seems to be a rudo again which wouldn’t make much sense if he’s the big Mexican hero in a few weeks. Perhaps this is just some time killing before the feud, and maybe even Jeff Jarrett disguises himself as Yack or Oficial Rayan to jump Park here, but plans might be changing.

(Not sure Jarrett vs Park is actually any bigger than Wagner vs Park right now.)

In other action, Vampiro keeps getting scheduled for tag matches and Consejo keep getting scheduled for the Psycho Circus. Texano vs Mesias still seems on; the finish on this week’s AAA TV established it as a match not to care about, but it’s not like Mesias has anything better to do. (You could say the same about Chessman and Vampiro.)

Oficials vs Infierno Rockers should be great.
