Guerrero Mixtico loses his hair, TxT struggles in Leon, Tama to return

IWRG (SUN) 09/29/2013 Arena Naucalpan [IWRG]
1) Mr. Leo b Emperador Azteca
Straight falls.
2) Alfa & Omega b Black Thunder & Fulgore II
Black Thunder’s first appearance on a regular show in a couple years.
3) Canis Lupus b Carta Brava Jr., Rayan, Astro Rey Jr., Fulgor I, el Ángel, Douki, Avisman [IWRG IC WELTER, final]
Douki’s first appearance on an IWRG show in 2011. Title became vacant when Dinamic Black left the company (worked too many IWL shows.) Worked as an eight way elimination match. Angel, Douki, Avisman and Astro Rey Jr. were all eliminated before a long four way segment with Carta Brava, Lupus, Fulgor and Rayan. It came down Brava and Lupus, and Canis Lupus won the title to become champion.
4) Dr. Cerebro, Relámpago (Coahuila), Toscano DQ Eterno, Fuerza Guerrera, Hijo de Máscara Año 2000
Eterno fouled Toscano for the DQ.
5) Alan Extreme, Black Terry, Dragón Celestial b Ciclón Black, Guerrero Mixtico, Tony Rivera [captains hair]
Karate Kid was with Team Tony Rivera pre-match (and post-match.) An elaborate process involving envelopes meant no one on either team knew who was captain until the match was over. In the third, Team Neza beat Dragon, team IWRG beat Ciclon and a bloody Black Terry defeated Tony Rivera. The commissioner opened the envelopes and it turned out Guerrero Mixitco was the loser. He tried to walk out but they made him come back and shave his head

I saw the title match; it was less chaotic than the lightweight title match though it was still eight man craziness. I’ve seen parts of the main event (all without the sound) and could not make heads or tails of what was happening until Guerrero Mixtico got his hair cut. That was the expected ending. They’re still setting up Black Terry versus Tony Rivera at some point here.

TxT’s fair show in Leon does not look like it drew well. Maybe 25-33%? Part of the reason it’s hard to believe Wagner and Park will ever get the money they want for their mask match is they might have already peaked in interest because it’s been done so many times. This time out, the singles match sure didn’t help. No results yet and I’m not sure if we’ll get them since it was all the way out in Leon. They did have the Cadena3 banners hanging, so it should turn up on TV at some point – maybe as soon as airing on Sunday.

Tama Tonga returns to CMLL on 10/09. The tag team tournament wraps up on 10/08, so they could do the title match as soon as the following Tuesday, or wait to Friday to run against the WWE shows. Though, it’s doubtful that a single person who wants to go to the first WWE show in two years is going to change their mind because CMLL’s running La Sombra & Atlantis versus Tama Tonga & Rey Bucanero. CMLL tends to build to the foreign threat losing at the end of their run, which makes this early title match very different. NJPW doesn’t give a return date for Tonga but I suspect he’ll be around for a while again this year; if NJPW is running a December tag team league, Tonga will probably leave in time for that.

Tonight’s Puebla show has another Indy Legends (UWA) versus CMLL match in Black Terry, Solar and Negro Navarro versus Atlantis, Blue Panther and Shocker. The main event continues the setup to a Mascara versus Mephisto title match, which should be one or two weeks away.

AYM/LAS has decided to start charging for it’s Internet feed. It’s mostly trying to make money off the Mexican Baseball League games (normal and winter league) that they cover. IWRG and the other programing just happen to be thrown in. It’s 99 Mexican Pesos a month ($7.50 USD) but anyone can get a month free if they sign up and you can pay thru Paypal if you subscribe.
