***Ajuste de Cuentas***
3) Nino Hamburguesa & Tacubo b Azteca & Dragon Yuki
Mexico vs Japan. Los Masizos interfered to try and cost Hamburguesa and Tacubo the match as part of their long running bulling campaign, but Crazy Boy ran them off and again said he’d be returning soon.

Elimination match, with Flamita beating Eita to win the title.

Joe Lider retained the title.
6) Solar I b Negro Navarro
Crazy Boy worked as referee. Solar won via arm submission.
7) Aeroboy & Violento Jack b Cíclope & Perro Mocho Jr. and Drastik Boy & Pesadilla
Mat was removed from the ring, and they wrestled on the wood planks. Usual hardcore match. Violento Jack and Aeroboy removed some of the planks so Violento Jack could piledriver someone all the way to the floor. Aeroboy beat Drastick Boy for the win.
Joaquin Roldan announced Rey de Reyes would take place Plaza de Toros Monumental de Monterrey on 03/17. That was a big home for lucha libre shows up thru the 90s, and less so after Monterrey lucha libre scaled down.
Possible in not a coincidence: Mistico and Mr. Niebla are headed to Monterrey on 03/19. The Tuesday ACM cards are listed as being televised, for whatever it means.
The Santo/LA Park/Blue Demon/Rayo de Jalisco/Atlantis/Hijo de Rey Misterio show in Chicago’s Congress Theatre drew a reported 3,500 sell out.
Big Neurosis led his team to victory in Monterrey.

She talks about being part of CMLL, and says she been told there’s a possibility she may go to Japan for 3 months for REINA. It’s been a while since REINA has brought any of the CMLL crew over.
Texano, Silver King and Octagoncito took part in a event for a charity that supports children with heart disease.
Taya and Jennifer has a confornation with two fitness women who are being taped for reality a show (and so was this bit, I’d guess.)

5) Rayan vs Dinamic Black [IWRG IC WELTER]
Rayan is champion. Second defense.
Wasn’t quite sure if IWRG was running a Sunday show, because they were slower than usual to announce it. It’s a good looking card. Not sure how the title match is going to go, that match seems to have come out of nowhere.
Tercera Caida’s mentioned the Galaxy from Queretaro is injured. I believe the IWRG Galaxy is a different guy, but I’m not sure. Guess we find out. Fly Star and Electro Boy are making their first appearances in a while.
CMLL (TUE) 02/26/2013 Arena Mexico
1) Génesis & Robin vs Camorra & Guerrero Negro Jr.
2) Cancerbero, Raziel, Virus vs Arkángel de la Muerte, Nitro, Skándalo
3) Camaleón vs Stigma, Soberano Jr., Höruz, Hombre Bala Jr., Akuma, Espanto Jr., Herodes Jr., Cholo, Bobby Zavala [Sangre Nueva, semifinal]
winner faces the 03/05 winner on 03/12.
4) Delta vs Negro Casas [lightning]
5) Ángel de Oro, Diamante Azul, Super Porky vs Euforia, Niebla Roja, Último Guerrero
Last year’s tournament had Titan, Dragon Lee, Cancerebro, Triton, Hijo del Signo and Raziel, guys who were pretty established in the 2nd/3rd matches by that point. This is more balanced bracket, though Zavala and Bala have accomplished more than the rest here and Stigma has been booked higher. I think Bala is the slight favorite.

Flehyzer used the same spelling for two weeks in a row, hooray! I’m thinking of putting a big $2 bounty for anyone who can get a photo of Flehyzer holding up a sign with his correct name spelling. This is of course the Konkreto/FILL feud continuing. Odd to see Apolo Estrada Jr., who’s been around for years, working a trainee show.
