CMLL (FRI) 09/27/2013 Arena Mexico [@therealfredo, CMLL]
1) Cancerbero & Raziel b Hombre Bala Jr. & Súper Halcón Jr.
Rudos took 2/3
2) Princesa Blanca, Princesa Sugheit, Tiffany DQ Dalis la Caribeña, Goya Kong, Marcela
Rudas took 2/3. Dallys refused to help Marcela the whole match and tried to steal the pin from her in the third, but only got her team DQed.
3) Kráneo, Morphosis, Psicosis b Fuego, Guerrero Maya Jr., Stuka Jr.
Rudos took 2/3 in a good match. Stuka and Fuego wiped each other out on a dive, and the Invasors beat Guerrero Maya with a swinging gate match.
4) Titán b Niebla Roja [lightning]
Titan defeated Niebla Roja in a match full of big spots, but also Titan winning with a modified cerrajera in over 9 minutes
5) Mistico, Super Porky, Valiente DQ Averno, Mephisto, Rey Escorpión
straight falls. Porky furiously attacked Rey Escorpion in the second for an excessive violence DQ, then demanded a hair versus hair match.
6) Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas, Volador Jr. b La Sombra, Marco Corleone, Rush
Rudos took 1/3. Negro Casas put his feet on the ropes to beat Rush, in revenge for previous weeks.

As with last week, Terra aired the first four matches and then abruptly cut away. Unsure why they don’t make it clear they’re going to do that (and Terra seems unaware.) Terra did add a HD quality level; I think it’s actually a little short of HD size but it’s a big improvement over Alta.

I’m not convinced CMLL is going to bother to counter program the WWE show on 10/18, but Rey Escorpion vs Super Porky seems on pace to take place on the date, and there’s other issues (Dallys/Marcela, Negro/Rush, Avernos/Estetas) which could be scheduled for that show if they do it.

That lightning match was crazy and the Invasors match before it was a lot of fun.

Cuervo is very angry about Los Perros del Mal hurting Scoria while he was in Japan. (They hurt Scoria?)

CMLL (FRI) 10/04/2013 Arena Mexico
1) Oro Jr. & Soberano Jr. vs Canelo Casas & Guerrero Negro Jr.
2) Dalis la Caribeña, Estrellita, Marcela vs Amapola, Princesa Blanca, Tiffany
3) Titán vs Vangellys [lightning]
4) Máximo, Stuka Jr., Super Porky vs Dragón Rojo Jr., Pólvora, Rey Escorpión
5) Máscara Dorada, Mistico, Valiente vs Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto
6) Atlantis, Marco Corleone, Shocker vs Felino, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas

A main event with no particular issue. Semimain seems to continue a build to an Estetas/Avernos title match. Porky and Escorion feud in the fourth match. Titan and Vangelis is a matchup of the En Busca de un Idolo winners. Dallys still hasn’t turned ruda. Oro & Soberano is a really good team.
