CMLL (FRI) 12/13/2013 Arena Mexico [CMLL]
1) Canelo Casas & Herodes Jr. b Camaleón & Oro Jr.
Rudos took 1/3 in a very sloppy match.
2) Boby Zavala, Shigeo Okumura, Virus b Fuego, Pegasso, Tritón
Rudos took 1/3.
3) Atlantis, Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr. b Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto
Tecnicos took 2/3, Atlantida on Averno.
4) Negro Casas b Blue Panther [lightning]
Blue Panther replaced Valiente (moved up) on Monday. Negro won cleanly with a casita in 9:08 and they shook hands after the match. (Feud over.)
5) La Máscara, Rush, Valiente b Tama Tonga, Terrible, Vangellys
Marco Corleone was originally announced, but replaced by Valiente on Monday. Rush beat Terrible with the Rush Driver to win. Terrible was stretchered out.
6) Niebla Roja, Reapper, Último Guerrero b Mistico, Titán, Volador Jr.
Volador had the win, but was distracted by a second Reapper. The one in the match pinned Volador using the ropes

I presume the mystery Reapper was Morphosis. (He’s dressed up like Psicosis II before.) There are other, more interesting, possibilities.

Angelico & Jack Evans talk about their match tonight. The AAA wrestlers had a red carpet event yesterday.

Triton, Tiger, Princesa Blanca, and Zeuxis taped a segment for TV show Venga la Alegria. That’s a TV Azteca show.

This week’s Tercera Caida after the cameras video with Super Pinocho and Super Muneco.

Black Fire talks about his chances of winning the DTU Alto Impacto championship.

Preview of CMLL’s card on Monday.

Ecatepec luchadors Crixus, Lirio de Plata y Optimus boast about their recent tour of Japan. I have never heard of these people before.

losers of previous match

It would be a tremendous surprise if Golden Magic & Hijo de Pirata lost, but the other two teams could advance to the final. Trauma’s not going to lose either.

Holiday season means the minis are back. It hasn’t been announced, but they frequently skip the last Thursday of the year.

CMLL (FRI) 12/20/2013 Arena Mexico
1) Leono & Pegasso vs Cancerbero & Raziel
2) Fuego, Guerrero Maya Jr., Sagrado vs Boby Zavala, Misterioso Jr., Puma
3) Blue Panther, Máximo, Super Porky vs Dragón Rojo Jr., Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas
4) Atlantis vs AvernoLa MáscaraOlímpicoDeltaFelinoTritónTigerStuka Jr.Shigeo OkumuraTitánVirus [Leyenda de Plata, semifinal]
5) Volador Jr. vs Reapper

Expected main event. Should find more about Reapper II.

Atlantis is not going on vacation yet. A lot of people who don’t appear to have a chance involved – maybe Atlantis, Averno, La Mascara and Titan are the only realistic finalists.

Still no Sombra on a Friday show. He ought to be in next week’s Leyenda de Plata – though so should Volador. And Rush. Which probably means a lot of people are skipping this while going home.
