CMLL FUROR (SUN) 09/22/2013 Arena Naucalpan [Black Terry Jr. (Flickr), Estrellas del Ring]
1) Flyer b Robin, Akuma
2) Eléctrico & Último Dragoncito b Mercurio & Pequeño Olímpico
3) Estrellita & Goya Kong b Amapola & Tiffany
4) Canis Lupus, Puma (CMLL), Tiger b Centvrión, Guerrero Maya Jr., Magnus
Rudos took 1/3. Magnus replaced Dinamic Black. Comando Negro was originally announced, but Canis Lupus replaced him.
5) Blue Panther, Brazo de Oro, Negro Casas b Black Terry, Negro Navarro, Shu el Guerrero
Brazo de Oro replaced Brazo de Plata. Team CMLL took 2/3. Negro Casas beat Negro Navarro with a casita to win.
6) La Sombra & Volador Jr. NC Atlantis & Último Guerrero [Relevos Increíbles]
match essentially abandoned after two falls of teams not getting along
7) Último Guerrero & Volador Jr. b Atlantis & La Sombra
one fall, Volador beating Sombra and UG doing the same to Atlantis. Volador demanded a chance to take Sombra’s mask, Sombra said no since he already won and walked off.
Attendance seems slightly down from the similar (and holiday) RCH show last week. This was a sponsored show and probably not a long term return of CMLL to the building.
AAA will have La Parka on their interview show tonight.
LA Park says his next objective is La Sombra, to avenge his nephew’s loss. This will happen right after the triple mask match.
Apparently there was a press conference for Heavy Metal’s upcoming Rock and Wrestling show, because there’s one article where Veneno is unhappy Heavy Metal didn’t book him on his show and promises to show up and challenge Metal anyway, and then another where Heavy Metal talks about being hit by a guitar by Veneno at the press conference. Veneno got himself added to the main event, so that was a strong plan.
Interivew with Espartaco, who says he’s a 31 year veteran who’s used that name for 9 years. Hmmm.
IWL will air at 5:30 pm today. Tercera Caida is on Wednesday, but earlier than usual.
Lucha Libre in Japan
09/23 Stardom: Alpha Female b Dark Angel [5STAR GP]
That’s the end of her tournament (though there’s no mention of Dark Angel leaving Japan yet.)
The CMLL luchadoras over in REINA will be appearing on the 10/14 Wrestling New Classic show.
CMLL (SUN) 09/29/2013 Arena Coliseo
1) Aéreo & Stukita vs Mercurio & Pequeño Universo 2000
2) Pegasso, Soberano Jr., Stigma vs Camorra, Inquisidor, Nosferatu
3) Diamante, Fuego, Sagrado vs Ishii, Namajague, Shigeo Okumura
4) Guerrero Maya Jr. vs Virus [lightning]
5) Blue Panther, Shocker, Thunder vs Tiger, Último Guerrero, Vangellys
6) Atlantis, La Máscara, Mistico vs Dragón Rojo Jr., Pólvora, Rey Escorpión
First Coliseo show in a month.
Stukita’s back! (And so are Aereo and Universo.) I dunno what’s going on, though I’m leaning towards CMLL not doing as many Pequeno Estrellas matches and some guys just not being available. Stukita seems only cleared to work openers (and tournaments) at this point, so maybe it’s also matter of finding three other guys who would work openers with him.
Guerrero Maya Jr. vs Virus should be awesome. Ishii seems to have the same amount of plans as Bushi did for his stint (none), but any time Namajague & Okumura team up on Sundays may mean the start of a certain title program.
