Atlantis, guest announcing, was attacked by Ultimo Guerrero. (That feud is suddenly back on.)

Namajague was taken to the hospital with a head or brain injury. Judging from the pictures, he landed on his head while taking Rey Cometa’s running Spanish Fly. No update on his status yet. Rey Cometa was also hurt on his elimination, only everyone was taking care of Namajague and Cometa was left to lay on the floor for a while. Nothing on him either.

On the radio broadcast, Rey Bucanero said he’d be out another two weeks. The opener and the Reyes del Aire is starting the main event.

The El Luchador TV show says they’ve been picked up by MTV Tr3s in the United States. No word as to a start date.

Highlights of Cerebro Negro vs Dinamic Black and Mr. Leo vs Centvrion vs Alan Extreme, which weren’t taped for TV but Black Terry Jr. is selling on his site. There’s also a promo with Eterno & Carta Brava hyping their upcoming appearance in Tijuana.

A couple pictures from the ex-WWE show in Tuxtla Guiterrez. Didn’t seem to draw well.

CMLL (FRI) 02/08/2013 Arena Mexico

winner faces Sombra next week.
5) Atlantis, Rush, Shocker vs Terrible, Tiger, Último Guerrero

Video promo for the show. CMLL just did a rudo vs rudo singles match, so a tecnico vs tecnico Reyes del Aire final is not out of the question. Volador’s the heavy favorite, but Dorada, Valiente, Oro and Mephisto all have at least a shot of making it to the final.

Rey Cometa & Namajague is listed on the show, but that’s subject to change. That match is interesting as listed; I think it’s possible the plan is not for Stuka vs Namajague, but maybe Stuka & Rey Cometa vs Namajague & Okumura.

Women get the week off.

DTU (TUE) 02/19/2013 Arena Aficion

6) Solar I vs Negro Navarro
7) Cíclope & Perro Mocho Jr. vs Aeroboy & Violento Jack and Drastik Boy & Pesadilla

Poster here. The stipulation for the main event is the ring will have no mat and instead will just be wood. I’m not sure why you’d want to do that, except that must’ve been what they did in the match Violento Jack & Aero Boy did in Japan and that’s usually reason enough.
