CMLL (TUE) 12/04/2012 Arena Mexico [CMLL]
1) Bengala & Höruz b Camorra & Inquisidor
2) Leono, Molotov, Tigre Blanco DQ Bobby Zavala, Disturbio, Hijo del Signo
Tecnicos took 1/3. Disturbio and Zavala fouled Tigre Blanco and Leono.
3) Princesa Blanca, Princesa Sugheit, Tiffany b Dalis la Caribeña, Dark Angel, Luna Mágica
Dalys replaced Estrellita. Rudas took 2/3.
4) Vangelis b Diamante [lightning]
Vangelis won in 5:08 via northern lights suplex.
5) La Máscara, Marco Corleone, Valiente b Tama Tonga, Terrible, Tiger
Tecnicos took 2/3. Tama & Terrible messed up, Mascara submitted Terrible to the campana, then challenged for a tag title shot with himself and Terrible.
6) Pólvora & Rey Escorpión DQ Niebla Roja & Último Guerrero
Revolucionarios jumped the Guerreros and beat them in the first fall with some amount of cheating. Escorpion was about to beat Ultimo Guerrero in the second fall when Euforia ran in for the DQ. They talked about a trios match next week.

The mystery man promo was shown after the second match.

Sobre el Ring is among those reporting the death of Hijo de Andy Barrow. No word on the cause of death, just mentioned as surprise. He worked at least one match in Mexico City, but was most recently noted as wrestling around Jalisco. It was never clear if he was the actual son of ex-UWA manager Andy Barrow or just using that name.

Violento Jack, who is said to have come up with the DTU name, posted that he quit DTU a few weeks ago.

Diestro, Tigre Lee, Xtreme Warrior vs Kid Silver, King Haizer, Super Loco is the local match on the Acapulco AAA TV taping. It’s (at least) a two week taping, so it’s more likely this will air at some point. About half the luchadors are from the Acapulco Antonio Pena lucha libre school (named in his honor with approval from AAA.)

Bill has highlights of 05/29/12 CMLL GDL.

CMLL (TUE) 12/11/2012 Arena Mexico
1) Robin & Soberano Jr. vs Camorra & Zayco
2) Leono, Metatrón, Tigre Blanco vs Bobby Zavala, Disturbio, Taurus
partial rematch after issues between Blanco/Loco and Disturbio/Zavala last week
3) Diamante, Hijo del Fantasma, Sagrado vs Hijo del Signo, Sangre Azteca, Vangelis
4) Guerrero Maya Jr. vs Virus [lightning]
5) Euforia, Niebla Roja, Último Guerrero vs Dragón Rojo Jr., Pólvora, Rey Escorpión
6) Tama Tonga & Terrible vs La Máscara & Valiente [CMLL TAG]
Terrible & Tama Tonga are champions going for their first defense

Tonga’s got to go home at some point and he’s probably not leaving with the title, right? There’s got to be a chance!

Guerrero Maya vs Virus adds to Guerrero Maya vs Averno as great lightning matches maybe not aired on TV.

It seems like something is developing in the second match. They did do an apuesta match on 01/01 last year. That’d be a Tuesday this year.

CMLL (TUE) 12/11/2012 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Black Metal & Virgo vs Acertijo & Sádico
2) Höruz & Metálico vs Apocalipsis & Cholo
3) Pegasso, Rey Cometa, Stigma vs Cancerbero, Inquisidor, Raziel
4) Atlantis, Diamante Azul, Shocker vs Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto
5) Negro Casas vs Ángel de Oro [NWA WELTER]
Negro Casas is champion. This would be his 3rd defense, all versus Angel de Oro

No one listens to Negro Casas when he says the next rematch should be on a Friday night. This probably shouldn’t be the title change, but it still should be good.
