CMLL (TUE) 02/11/2014 Arena Mexico [CMLL]
1) Leono & Magnus b Akuma & Zayco
Zayco was stretchered out after a Magnus move. Recap suggests this could start a Zayco/Magnus feud!
2) Canelo Casas, Guerrero Negro Jr., Herodes Jr. b Dragon Lee, Flyer, Robin
Flyer wore his aquamarine Volador outfit for the first time here.
3) Dark Angel, Estrellita, Goya Kong b Amapola, Princesa Blanca, Princesa Sugheit
Sexy Team got the win.
4) Sagrado b Virus [lightning]
5) Averno, Mephisto, Rey Bucanero b Atlantis, Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr.
Tiger & Terrible were originally announced, but replaced by Averno & Mephisto on Friday. Rudos took 1/3.
6) Felino, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas b La Máscara, Rush, Titán
Peste Negra took falls 1/3, then challenged for the trios titles. Rush said NO, but Mascara eventually said yes – as long as it gets him a mask match versus Niebla. (They’re just doing the title match.)
Trios match as expected, even as much as Rush tried to fight it. That reads as Rush being annoying to the rudos and not any tecnico dissension. It would be peciluar for the original Peste Negra – one of the oldest possible trios in the promotion who just got two new members not in this promotion – to win the national trios titles on the Nuevo Valores show.
CMLL (TUE) 02/11/2014 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [@acogdl]
1) Leo & Sky Kid b Mr. Trueno & Rey Trueno
Tecnicos took 1/3.
2) Dalys, La Seductora, Zeuxis b Lady Afrodita, Lluvia, Marcela
Lluvia’s first match since August. Rudas took 2/3, Dalys beating Marcela.
3) Boby Zavala, Camorra, Sangre Azteca b Stigma, Stuka Jr., Tritón
Rudos took 1/3, Camorra sneaking a foul on Stigma. They’ll come back in a singles match next week.
4) Volador Jr. b Mr. Águila
Volador took 2/3.
5) Euforia, Shocker, Último Guerrero DQ Diamante Azul, Marco Corleone, Valiente
Rudos took 1/3, Euforia tossing his mask to Marco to draw the DQ.
The increased amount of singles matches trend seems to be coming to Guadalajara as well. (I need to work up some numbers on this.) Camorra getting into a mask match and losing has been the best decision of that type since Rey Cometa.
Octagon announced he’s starting on the road to a mask match with Fuerza Guerrera on 03/02. (Tweet part 2; Octagon easily goes past 160.) What exactly has the last two decades been? The roads to the road to the mask match? It’s a good thing a lot of people who follow lucha libre in Mexico are in it for the nostalgia and not actually quality of the match, because any Fuerza Guerrera/Octagon match will have a lot of one of those things and not much of the other.
Matt Jackson mentioned on Twitter that he he broke his hand in a recent NJPW match (a IWGP Junior Tag Team championship earlier this week.) The injury may cause him to miss the ChilangaMask show. The promotion has already said that if the Young Bucks can’t make it, they have a two other of the same level ready and they’ll try to bring in Matt & Nick at some other time. Of all the many promotions in Mexico (little and big), ChilangaMask seems like the one most likely to bring in equal replacements given lead time, and also keep everyone updated about what’s going on in advance. It’s a bit harder when people get pulled on the day of the show, but otherwise I’m sure they’ll figure something out. The same update on that mentions they have three more surprises planned, one of which will be announced on Tercera Caida (listed as airing at 11pm CT night, usually up on YouTube before then.)
SuperLuchas #518 has coverage of the last two AAA tapings (before this past one) and the Sin Cara Gym show.
Angel o Demonio & Ovett won the main event of the 02/02 DTU show in Tulancingo, which seemed to set up a Crazy Boy/Angel o Demonio match.
CMLL Gaceta has a story about Silueta’s latest trip to Japan.
DJ Spectro has the second part of his look back at Angel Blanco.

CMLL (TUE) 02/18/2014 Arena Mexico
1) Flyer & Metatrón vs Cholo & Inquisidor
2) Angelito, Fantasy, Shockercito vs Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Warrior, Pierrothito
3) Hombre Bala Jr., Súper Halcón Jr., Tritón vs Cancerbero, Espiritu Negro, Raziel
4) Stuka Jr. vs Puma [lightning]
5) Black Panther, Blue Panther, Cachorro vs Dragón Rojo Jr., Misterioso Jr., Pierroth
6) La Máscara, Rush, Titán vs Felino, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas [MEX TRIOS]
Rush, La Mascara & Titan are champions. Second defense.
The rudos could win if they’re looking for a way to get Rush vs Negro Casas going again. The tecnicos all have other titles, they don’t need these trios titles – but neither do the rudos. I think the champs retain but I’m less sure the more I think about it.
If Cachorro and Black Panther have a good match with that group of rudos, then they’re really good. (They can be really good and not have a good match with those guys.)
There’s a mini Angelito who wrestled in 2012 and 2013 in Arena Azteca Budokan; I’d bet this is that guy. Poor Pequeno Valiente.
