Factor keeps title, IWRG prision, Volador/Maximo, GALLI, Mistico

IWRG (SUN) 11/25/2012 Arena Naucalpan [Estrellas del Ring, The Gladiatores]
1) Dragón Celestial & Power Bull b Fulgore & Serpiente de Oro
straight falls. Power Bull’s debut on the main show after appearing on a few FILL shows.
2) Dinamic Black, Golden Magic, Niko b Araña de Plata, Eita, Imposible
Niko beat Eita.
3) Cerebro Negro, Dr. Cerebro, Veneno b Alan Extreme, Carta Brava Jr., Eterno
Eterno replaced Canis Lupus, who is officially out with an injury. Tecnicos took 2/3, though Dr. Cerebro had Carta Brava beat and Cerebro Negro stole the win. Dr. Cerebro attacked Cerebro Negro after the match, and title and mask match challenges followed.
4) el Ángel, Hijo de LA Park, Hijo de Pirata Morgan DQ Hijo de Máscara Año 2000, Hijo del Dr. Wagner Jr., Oficial 911
Tecnicos took 2/3. 911 pulled Angel’s mask for a DQ, which set up more mask challenge between the two.
5) Factor b Cien Caras Jr. [IWRG Rey del Ring]
Factor came in as champion. Cien had Hijo de Mascara as his second, while Oficial 911 was forced to be Factor’s second. 911 attacked Cien in the first fall, Mascara ran in for revenge, and Mascara was caught of the DQ. Mascara was kicked out of ringside too. Cien protested that he must have a second, so the commission made Hijo de Pirata come out for it. This didn’t turn out well either, Pirata accidentally hitting Cien with a chair to set up Factor’s win. Mascara, Pirata, Factor and 911 agreed to Prison Fatal match next week where someone will be unmasked.

What’s odd here is IWRG’s twitter says Angel accepted 911’s mask challenge. I thought last night that meant the cage match wasn’t until down the road (and so the the Luchas2000 cover with it was kind of spoiling the Angel/911 finish), but maybe it’s the Angel/911 that’s later? Maybe Angel finds his way into the cage match – but he probably could’ve still been around when they made that match last night and didn’t take part the challenges. This will make sense at some point.

CMLL (SUN) 11/25/2012 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [El Occidental (5), Informador (5)]
5) Máximo, Shocker, Valiente DQ Averno, Mephisto, Volador Jr.
Tecnicos took 1/3, Maximo kissing Volador and Volador fouling Maximo for the DQ. This sets up a singles match next week.

GALLI (SUN) 11/25/2012 Arena GALLI, Villa Park, IL [KC]
1) Ripper DQ Mike Anthony
Anthony low blow dropkicked Ripper, and Ripper managed to get the foul call. This sets up a fans hold the straps strap match between Ripper and Anthony’s manager Dante DVS on 12/09
2) Dark Scorpion & Traidor b Matt Creed & Tommy Heisman
good match, Traidor wins via Gori Special. Traidor demanded rival Atomico come out to face him
3) Atomico b Traidor
quick match.
4) Marshe Rocket & Willie Richardson b Jon Morales & Matt Knicks
5) Bryce Bengajmin & Golden Dragon b Mojo Mcqueen & Rob Michaels
Bryne pinned McQueen. Mojo’s manager Dante DVS blamed Rob for the loss, slapping him. Michaels choked out DVS with his chain until Mojo & Anthony made the save.
6) Jake Shinning b Acid Jazz [GALLI CHAMP]
Mason Conard, who also earned this title shot last week, was not presented with the ring announcer noticing it. Shinning’s friends Morales, Knicks and manager Jason Russo interfered. The wrestlers were run off by the rest of the Soul Touchaz, but Russo still managed to blow Chocolate mist in Jazz’s face to blind him, and Shinning superkicked Jazz to win the title. Shinning pointed at Extreme Tiger after the match.
7) Bandolero & Noriega b Azteca & Calvin Beckham
switched to a pairs match because Fuego couldn’t make the show; Furia Roja snuck into give Beckham a Sliced Bread #2 to give the tecnicos the win. Furia went to shave Beckham, but Funebre ran in for the rudos – then Discovery returned to help the tecnicos! Matches were made for 12/09 (Discovery vs Azteca) and 12/16 (Beckham, Azteca, Funebre vs Rey Fuego, Noriega and Bandolero, elimination match, final two in an apuesta match, admission free with a gift for the toy drive.)

Extreme Tiger signed autographs as the show and is doing a seminar today.

Mistico is still being advertised for an Arena Xalapa show on 12/05, which would be just over 3 weeks from his injury. Tickets went on sale yesterday; they probably should’ve advised the local promoter if Mistico wasn’t coming before he started selling tickets, so I assume he’s working the show.

On his MLW Radio podcast, Konnan mention AAA’s off from 12/21 to either 01/06 or 01/10. That leaves time for one, and maybe two, tapings after Guerra de Titanes. Konnan also feels like the Guerra de Titanes cage match is unlike most lucha cage matches, because everyone who’s in it is a big deal and there’s no obvious loser. (Chessman is the obvious loser to me, but I can generously say he’s not as obvious as some cage matches.) Konnan thinks Vampiro needs to play more off his classic look rather than trying to change things up, because he’ll be more marketable that way, and told a story about Vampiro showing up one day with Nazi gear. Konnan also said “Jeff Jarrett is in our long term plans”, but noted he was carefully speaking about the situation for whatever reason. Konnan also seemed to think Daga won the QPPLC minis division, which may explain why he’s not gotten that cruiserweight title shot. Konnan says Samuray is free to use the Octagon Jr. in DGUSA and elsewhere, but seemed to want keep with his original name.

In Pacucha, CMLL’s Mercurio agreed to a hair match with local tecnico Killer Boy.

IWRG (THU) 11/29/2012 Arena Naucalpan
1) Galaxie vs Epidemia
spelling change for Galaxy?
2) Dinamic Black & La Cobra vs Alan Extreme & Eita
3) el Ángel vs Eterno [IWRG IC MIDDLE]
Angel is champion
4) Bestia 666, Damián 666, Fuerza Guerrera vs Dr. Cerebro, Pantera, Veneno
5) Solar I, Super Astro, Ultraman vs Black Terry, Negro Navarro, Pirata Morgan [super libre]
remach from the previous week

Angel vs Eterno sounds like it could be good.

CMLL (SUN) 12/02/2012 Arena Coliseo
1) Camaleón & Soberano Jr. vs Camorra & Guerrero Negro Jr.
2) Ángel Azteca Jr., Pegasso, Starman vs Bobby Zavala, Disturbio, Hooligan
3) Triton vs Skándalo [lightning]
4) Ángel de Oro, Hijo del Fantasma, Stuka Jr. vs Cancerbero, Misterioso Jr., Raziel
5) Atlantis, Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr. vs Kráneo, Mr. Águila, Psicosis
Atlantis team are the national trios champs. Non-title
6) Terrible vs La Sombra [CMLL HEAVY]
Terrible is champion

That’s a good show, not the least because they kept the Cancerberos and Tuareg on separate teams. If this means elevating Razial & Cancerbero, all the better.

Reyes del Atlantida and the Invasors are just locked in against each other. More Guerrero Maya vs Kraneo!

CMLL (SUN) 12/02/2012 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Black Metal & Halcón de Plata vs Espectrum & Sádico
2) Esfinge, Gallo, Smaker vs Bárbaro Cavernario, Maléfico, Ráfaga
3) Dark Angel & Silueta vs Amapola & La Comandante
4) Eros vs In Memoriam [hair]
5) La Máscara, Máscara Dorada, Super Porky, Titán, Valiente vs Euforia, Namajague, Shigeo Okumura, Tama Tonga, Último Guerrero [cibernetico]
6) Máximo vs Volador Jr.

Eros & In Memoriam have both lost their masks in the last few months.

Random ciberneticos often set up singles matches.

Where will Mije be? Volador really shouldn’t need Mije’s help to beat Maximo.

IWRG (SUN) 12/02/2012 Arena Naucalpan
1) Mini Batista, Mini Rey Cometa, Mini Super Astro vs Mini Espiritu, Mini Psicosis, Piratita Morgan Jr.
2) Centvrión, Cerebro Negro, Dinamic Black vs Alan Extreme, Carta Brava Jr., Eita
3) Oficial AK47 & Oficial Fierro vs Rayan & Spartan
4) el Ángel, Trauma I, Trauma II vs Bestia 666, Canis Lupus, Damián 666
5) Hijo de Pirata Morgan vs Hijo de Máscara Año 2000, Factor, Oficial 911 [cage, mask, Prison Fatal]

If I understand the main event right, there will be keys hanging in the cage, and you must use them to escape the cage. The last one locked in loses his mask. I guess it’s better than climbing out?  Police never do stuff in prision.

Centvirion and Dinamic Black need to assure Cerebro Negro they’re totally on his side and not on Dr. Cerebro’s, or that will go badly for them.

Minis match is crazy. There’s a lot of mini pirates. Cometa & Espiritu are from Puebla, Espiritu’s been in the QPPLC contest. Batista has turned on a small show lineup, but his entrance needs to make TV here.
