IWRG (SUN) 12/08/2013 Arena Naucalpan [IWRG]
1) Fulgor I & Fulgor II b Atomic Star & Electro Boy
2) Bugambilia, Diva Salvaje, Miss Gaviota b Avisman, Fulgor I, Imposible
Fulgor I worked twice, replacing Kalim Black
3) Bombero Infernal, Dragón Celestial, Golden Magic b El Hijo del Diablo, Picudo Jr., Tony Rivera
Bombero beat Rivera.
4) Apolo Estrada Jr. b Dr. Cerebro [WWS WELTER]
Vacant title. Dinamic Black was previous champion. Hijo del Diablo (Apolo’s second) hit Cerebro with a chair to give Apolo the first fall. Doc seemed about to win the third fall when referee Capu stopped him from striking with a closed first, and Apolo took advantage to get in a power bomb for the straight fall title win.
5) Fuerza Guerrera, Trauma I, Trauma II b Alan Extreme, Toscano, Veneno
Rudos took 1/3. Veneno seemed about to finish Trauma I when Fuerza (previously eliminated) hit Veneno with a chain to give the rudos a win.
Sunday’s Tercera Caida special was all from Friday night’s Tijuana show, including footage of the top two matches and interviews with Hijo del Santo and Rey Misterio Sr.
Atlantis rates this year a 10 (out of 10), because he (kind of) risked his mask in the 80th anniversary. He’s going on vacation in a couple weeks – this interview appeared to have been done last Monday, so he’s probably done in seven days. He hopes to get that mask match in 2014.
Hijo del Signo says there’s nothing to rumors of him going to AAA. What? Atlantis makes more sense than Hijo del Signo. Signo isn’t lighting CMLL on fire but would be an atrocious fit with AAA.
Chik Tormenta wants to prove she’s a better luchadora from Guadalajara than Silueta.
Gym del Valle held it’s holiday party/award presentation.
IWRG (SUN) 12/15/2013 Arena Naucalpan
1) Alfa & Omega vs Fulgor I & Fulgor II
2) Dragón Celestial, Hip Hop Man, Látigo vs Araña de Plata, Kaling Black, Zurdog
3) Diva Salvaje, Golden Magic, Miss Gaviota vs Douki, Imposible, Oficial 911
4) Alan Extreme, Máscara Púrpura, Veneno vs Fuerza Guerrera, Súper Nova, X-Fly
5) Dr. Cerebro vs Apolo Estrada [hair]
That main event could go either way with those two guys. Should at least be interesting. Apolo’s already taken Oficial AK47’s in the last few weeks. Oficial AK47 was out of his mind on last night’s TV.
There’s a Tuesday (FILL) show and a Sunday show announced for next week, but no Thursday show. Maybe there’s not one? Maybe FILL airs on AYM? That would be amazing. Maybe they just haven’t gotten around to promoting Thursday’s show.
CMLL (SUN) 12/15/2013 Arena Mexico
1) Leono & Robin vs Akuma & Inquisidor
2) Astral, Fantasy, Shockercito vs Demus 3:16, Pequeño Olímpico, Pequeño Warrior
3) Súper Halcón Jr. vs Cancerbero [lightning]

5) Blue Panther, Rush, Thunder vs Pólvora, Rey Bucanero, Tiger
6) Máximo, Valiente, Volador Jr. vs Felino, Negro Casas, Pierroth
Looks like Negro Casas versus Volador is a real thing; the timing may depend on if/when Volador is going on vacation for the holidays. Will Rey Bucanero actually return this week?
No Namajague this week. I have no idea why I’m putting this in this paragraph, but NJPW announced a new masked man named
El Desparade El Desperado would debut on their 01/05 (day after Tokyo Dome) show. No CMLL luchadors on the Tokyo Dome show this year, as was the case last year.
