1) Galaxy & Sky Ángel b Atomic Star & Dragón Celestial
One fall. Arana de Plata Jr. was replaced. Results list it as Atomic Boy, but it appears to be trainee Atomic Star.
2) Saruman & Seiya b Epidemia & Imposible
3) Centvrión, Chico Che, Dr. Cerebro b Apolo Estrada, Avisman, Black Terry
said to be a very good match. Apolo Estrada’s first match here since March.
4) Dinamic Black, Extreme Tiger, Veneno b Canis Lupus, Cerebro Negro, X-Fly
Dinamic Black’s mask was ripped and he bled again, but this time he was able to beat Cerebro Negro. WWS Welterweight title match is on for next week.

Highlight was all three minis working together to beat Pirata Morgan Sr. Match came down to Hijo de Pirata and Oficial 911, with 911 using a distraction to foul Hijo de Pirata for the win.

GALLI (SUN) 01/20/2013 Arena Galli [KC]
1) Jake Shinning & Mason Conrad b Joe Firoz & Negro Thunder
Shinning superkicked Joe for the win. Negro Thunder replaced Freek
2) Atomico, Discovery, Golden Dragon b Chico Suave, Destructor I, Destructor II
Discovery and Chico Suave were added to the match (they had a match with Traidor and Rey Fuego)
3) Prince Mustafa Ali b Kenny Sutura
Kenny Sutra replaced Bandolero
4) Matt Creed, Rob Michaels, Tommy Heisman, Will Moah b Dark Scorpion & Emperador Azteca
4 on 3 – Funebre was out hurt, and Calvin Beckham didn’t want to show up still bald. Rob Michaels replaced Furia Roja. Traidor was added to the rudo side, but they still lost.
5) Acid Jazz & Negrotistico DQ Jon Morales & Matt Knicks
The rest of the Syndicate attacked the tecnicos for the DQ.
6) GPA, Mike Anthony, Mojo Mcqueen, Punisher 747 b Marshe Rockett, Pentagano, Ripper, Willie Richardson [elimination]
Stips were the rudos (UWC Nation) had to leave if they lost, but they got control of GALLI if they won. Elimination rules: Punisher and Willie brawled to the back for the DCOR, Marshe beat Mojo, Syndicate distracted Marshe to set up a GPA pin, GPA pinned Pentagono on his own, and then Ripper laid down to give GPA the win, turning on the tecnicos. Ripper ripped up his GALLI t-shirt and beat up the promoter when he tried to get involved. Tecnicos ran the rudos off.

Today’s CMLL show is headlined by the losing side from the recent world trios title match, Mr. Aguila, Psicosis, and Volador, versus three tecnicos back from Japan, La Sombra, Mascara Dorada, and Titan. Both the Stuka/Namajague and Estrellita/Amapola feuds continue, and there’s a special Atlantis vs Mr. Niebla lighting match.

Rico Rodriguez, Kaientai, Chico Latino and the Gemelos Muerte formed a new rudo faction (“La Mafia Extranjera”) in Monterrey.

Extreme Tiger will face Ricky Marvin & Super Crazy on the NGX show (02/23)

Ricky Marvin will be on the next Super X show (02/24), in a four way with Juvi, Eterno and Tribal. That seems to replace the Fenix/Juvi vs Eterno/Tribal match announced a few days ago.

Great/Excellent Matches
