DTU, Casandro, Prison Fatal

Black Terry has photos of last night’s IWRG show. No results yet.

Drastick Boy picked up the DTU Alto Impacto title from Septimo Dragon in Arena Roberto Paz championship. Tercera Caida’s Facebook said five matches got money thrown in on Sunday’s show in Irapuato.

Hector Guzman was honored on Arena Lopez Mateos’s show Sunday.

Over in Neza, Myzteziz challenged Perro, Texano & Mascara yelled at the Clowns, and Los Markus got involved for some reason.

Segunda Caida writes about Blue Panther, Black Panther y Fuerza Guerrera vs Hector Garza, El Dandy y El Hijo del Santo

Casandro is profiled in the New Yorker. It’s pretty awesome to get a long form profile in the New Yorker, but I believe every possible outlet has now down a long form story on Casandro. I have a theory that Pimpinela Escarlata is the most famous Mexican exotico in Mexico, but Casandro is the most famous Mexian exotico in the United States at this point. (Maximo is the most famous Mexican exotico in Japan, I figure.) Aereo and Magno make appearances, Hunico is very vaguely referenced (I think) and Niebla Roja’s real first name is mentioned. The writer visits a show in Arena Kalaka and a Lucha Va Voom one, which is about as opposite sides of the spectrum you can see.

Silueta and Marcela posed with NJPW’s president. Silueta teased good news for women’s wrestling. CMLL luchadors have been in Japan for REINA the same time as FantasticaMania in previous years, but their only appearances has been as valets (or helping work the merchandise stand) – might they get a match on a show in 2015?

Fresero Jr. says he has not signed a contract with AAA and has more money than Alberto del Rio. He prints his own money with his face on it, so I think this must be true.

Today’s Puebla show has Volador Jr. vs Rey Escorpion for Volador’s NWA Welterweight Championship. Volador’s almost definitely keeping the title. in a non-title match.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news report and Poster-Mania.

Fuego en el Ring catches up with Super Muneco.


IWRG (WED) 08/27/2014 Arena Naucalpan 
1) Sky Ángel vs Capitán Muerte 
2) Galaxy & Látigo vs Anubis Black & Matrix Jr. 
3) Hip Hop Man © vs Dragón Celestial [AIWA ARGENTINA CRUISER]
First? defense for Hip Hop man. 
4) Apolo Estrada Jr., Avisman, El Hijo del Diablo © vs Black Terry, Dr. Cerebro, Veneno [EdM Trios]
5th defense for the Gringos. 
5) Relámpago vs Golden Magic, Tony Rivera, Ciclon Black, Alan Extreme, Metaleon, Yakuza, Chucho el Roto [cage, hair, mask, prison fatal]

The four way tag match from last week run back, this time with the masked Chucho el Roto replacing the freshly shaved Ironia. (I guess Spider Boy had spider things to do.) The Neza Boys might be in trouble here.

I like Argentina’s Hip Hop Man retaining a title solely for Argentina.
