top six stories of the last two weeks

  1. AAA’s year end show, Guerra de Titanes, took place Sunday night. Chessman took Vampiro’s hair (or at least the part of it he wanted cut) in the six way main event. That outcome was a bit of surprise, but not as big as Texano Jr. defeating Mesias cleanly to win the AAA Heavyweight championship. Texano had spent all but the last couple months as a trios wrestler and actually was beat by Mesias in the first match of this feud (in Ziggler-like fashion), so both the outcome and the lack of controversy were unexpected. Fellow rudo Daga also won the cruiserweight championship in a ladder match which saw two people hurt (Juvi and Fenix) and two people not appear with no explanation (Teddy Hart & a TNA wrestler.) All the big rudo wins led to an end of show declaration from Konnan that he and the rudos – including the Jarrett, who were flown in simply for a inconsequential attack on LA Park – were leaving AAA to form their own promotion.
  2. In other matches on the same show, Octagon Jr.’s debuted under his name, teaming with Octagon & La Parka to face Silver King and surprise partners Pentagon Jr. (evil Octagon Jr.) and La Parka Negra (evil Zorro). Octagon Jr. still won, but the evil doppelgangers appear to be permanent additions. The Infierno Rockers saw their win streak come to an end against the Psycho Circus, but still beat up the Clowns post match with the help of giant Uro Rocker. The show itself drew a disappointingly small crowd.
  3. CMLL’s announced Sin Piedad, it’s year end show, will take place next Friday (12/14). That’s all they’ve announced for the show. The Copa Junior final will take place but nothing else will take place and no big matches are expected as a result. CMLL’s pushed this Friday’s British Night much stronger, though even that is just for the theme than any built up feud.
  4. Sombra won a non-title match over Terrible, the Advanced division of the annual bodybuilding contest, and the first bracket of the Copa Junior tournament, but came up just short for the heavyweight title against Terrible.
  5. in other bodybuilding results, Dark Angel won the women’s division for the 7th straight year, with Stukita (minis), Flyer (beginners), Sensei (Intermediate) winning the other divisions and opening match wrestler Sensei declared the overall winner.
  6. CMLL hyped the debut of yet another mystery new wrestler in 2013. CMLL has done this bit, and introduced so many new wrestlers, that there is mininal buzz about the mystery this time around.
  • Perros del Mal beat AAA in the main event of a benefit show for Hector Garza (who did not appear). The show featured AAA, Perros del Mal and small promotions wrestlers and will air as part of AAA Fusion.
  • AAA announced the lineup for the it’s final Televisa taping of the year, to take place 12/21 in Acapulco. It’s the first show in their usual slow period, and there’s not much to the show.
  • a show headlined by LA Park, Dr. Wagner and Canek (with the usual inconclusive ending) drew a near full house for Arena Lopez Mateos. The same building has had trouble drawing for other shows, including a AAA Fusion taping.
  • Estrellita won the Mexican National Women’s Championship
  • Samuray del Sol explained he’d only be Octagon Jr. in AAA.
  • Sexi Star kept the Reina de Reinas title in a tournament with the WAVE promotion in Japan. AAA wrestlers and Dorian Roldan flew over to Japan for the show.
  • Guerreros and the rebel memebrs (Los Revolucionarios del Terror) continued to feud
  • Oficial Factor lost his mask in IWRG’s Prison Fatal
  • Rush and Diamante Azul did laughably poor in NJPW’s World Tag Team Tournament.
  • people who kept titles: Factor, Angel
  • Daga will face Matt Cross on 01/20

One thought to “top six stories of the last two weeks”

  1. When I saw the new logo for Galavision I figured new direction too. Lots of programming changes and I hope it does not result in CMLL getting dumped.
