Tecnicos took 2/3, Diamante Azul beating Thunder and Rush beat Terrible with a dropkick.

Sounded like a very forgettable show. Star Jr. appeared to be a last second sub since he didn’t have a mask. (You can’t quite find Star Jr. masks on sale outside either.)

If you build a match at the Anniversary entirely around getting Thunder over as a dominating force, you probably shouldn’t have him losing for no particular reason 9 days later. Thunder’s going to fail, everyone but the people in charge of actually making decisions realize that at this point, and nine to eighteen months from now he’s going to be gone and how they booked him will be no matter…but there still will have been a lame match on the Anniversary show instead of something fun that could’ve been used to get over people who will actually matter to the promotion long term.

1) El Yaqui b El Tapatío
2) Acertijo & Évola b El Brillante & Javier Cruz
straight falls
3) Demonio Maya b Leo
4) Sky Kid & Smaker b Magnum & Ráfaga
Tecnicos took 1/3
5) La Sombra & Valiente DQ Ephesto & Mephisto
Tecnicos took 1/3 when Mephisto fouled Valiente. Valiente demanded a rematch.
6) Titán b Gran Guerrero
Titan took 2/3 to beat Gran Guerrero again.

Hooray for Titan continuing to win. He’s 8-3 in singles matches (at least in Mexico the US) this year. Meanwhile, Mephisto can’t just leave Valiente alone and that’s going to cost him eventually.

Rey Misterio Jr. was hanging around the Lucha Underground taping Saturday; Drago had a photo posted with him before taking it down. There’s no real change here: Rey’s going to be on the show as soon as he’s legally allowed and WWE is going to make him wait as long as possible to be legally allowed.

This weekend’s DTU tour has Paranoiko won the Consgrados championship from Ovettseen Aeroboy become #1 contender to the Alto Impacto title and Los Nerds not only taking their first loss, but being destroyed by Los Malkriados and their new leader Calibus.

Mil Mascaras won in his latest return to Tijuana. More interesting to me is the segunda, where Patera Azteca and Toxik went to a draw with Rayn Kid & Super Boy when the commission stopped the match. It’s not said why, and I’m interested to know what can get a match stopped in Tijuana. Semimain seemed to set up an XLAW tag title defense.

Tony Casanova took Star Boy’s hair on Evolution Lucha Libre’s first anniversary show.

LuchaWorld had KrisZ’s news update.

Rob has highlights of 06/10/14 CMLL.

Segunda Caida reviews Lucha Azteca 07/12/14 and Uprising Lucha Libre 09/27/14.

Ohtani’s Jacket has reviews of random 90s match.

Today’s Super Libre had interviews withLa Magnifica, Gran Cochisse, Rey Celestial and Titan.

Aerostar, who says he’s still hurting from Super Fly’s attack, still managed a pretty decent “go watch more YouTube” burn on Pentagon Jr.


CMLL (SUN) 10/05/2014 Arena Coliseo
1) Soberano Jr. & Starman vs Cholo & Disturbio
2) Eléctrico vs Demus 3:16, Pequeño Olímpico, Bam Bam, Stukita, Pierrothito, Mercurio, Shockercito, Último Dragoncito, Pequeño Nitro, Fantasy, Aéreo, Acero, Angelito[#1 Contenders, CMLL MINI]
winner gets a shot at Astral
3) Ángel de Oro, Blue Panther, Super Porky vs Hombre sin Nombre, Rey Escorpión, Vangellys
4) Diamante Azul, Rush, Volador Jr. vs Cavernario, Negro Casas, Shocker

I count 17 current CMLL minis: Astral (champ!), Pequeno Violencia (hurt), Pequeno Universo (fat) and the 14 guys in the match. Pequeno Universo should show up, still think ther’es a good shot he gets in the match. Olimpico was champion for two millennium and has to go thru a cibernetico to get another shot, that seems unfair. I’m betting on Demus.

That appears to be Cavernario’s first ever Arena Coliseo main event, which is neat. (He’s main evented some Tuesdays but no Sundays.) Cavernio’s ‘s probably stuck with Diamante Azul, which is not great. Can they trade Panther and Azul?

CMLL (SUN) 10/05/2014 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Reyko vs Relampago Azul
2) El Divino vs Thunder Boy
3) Smaker vs Infierno
4) Exterminador, Javier Cruz Jr., Leo vs Acertijo, Évola, Jocker

6) La Sombra & Valiente vs Ephesto & Mephisto

Looks like another Mephisto/Valiente match?
