IWRG (SUN) 09/28/2014 Arena Naucalpan [The Gladiatores]
1) Araña de Plata Jr. b Sky Ángel
2) Metaleon & Saruman b Atomic Star & Freyser
3) Apolo Estrada Jr., Avisman, El Hijo del Diablo b Diva Salvaje, Dr. Cerebro, Miss Gaviota
straight falls. Gringos have passed over a year of being Mexico State champions.
4) Hijo De Dos Caras, Súper Nova, Veneno b Canis Lupus, Hijo de Máscara Año 2000, Universo 2000 Jr.
Hijo de Dos returned. Tecnicos took 2/3 though the third fall finish was confusing. Mascara had Dos down and covered him for a three count according to referee Sonrisas, but referee Reyes Rosas ruled Dos got a shoulder up in a time. Confusion followed, and Dos suplexed Mascara for the win.
5) Demon Clown DQ Cien Caras Jr.
Mexico vs Canada! Demon Clown jumped Cien, who was not really helped by Mascara hitting him with a chair by mistake. Demon took the middle rope splash for the second. Ref Rosas was taken out in the second fall, leading to Mascara coming in to help beat up Demon Clown, but the ref came too and DQed the Capos. Straight falls for Demon Clown. Cien, having lost in two falls, challenged Hijo de Dos for a title match and Demon for a rematch. Dos appeared to accept the title change.
A proud day for Canada! I wonder what Demon Clown’s fantasy hockey team is called. My interest in this main event program begins and ends with Demon Clown’s Canada-ness. I would suggest IWRG not try to book Hijo de Dos on 10/12. Just play it safe.
Gringos VIP attacked Dr. Cerbero during interviews, so that feud is still going. IWRG has a few set ups of big matches (for IWRG) but there’s no real idea of when they’ll be doing them now that September is over. They also have the annual Halloween cage match show about a month from now.
The new Ninja Turtles appeared before the crowd and it was announced they’ll debut next week. Not a big fan of the new designs, but the movie designs weren’t so great so maybe they’re accurate. They’re IWRG opening match guys getting a new gimmick.
Tonight’s CMLL show in Puebla was supposed to be Zeuxis challenging Estrellita for the Mexican Women’s Championship, but Estrellita is out with a rib injury. The Puebla paper who covers the shows says she’ll be out two weeks. (That match felt like a routine Estrellita defense when it was announced, but I’m now a lot less sure about that.) The actual main event is Ingobernables versus the odd team of Ultimo Guerrero, Gran Guerrero and Volador Jr.
The ColiseoMania show drew a big crowd last night in Arena Coliseo Monterrey. They say they’ll eb back on 11/02 for a Arena Coliseo 59th Anniversary show.
ChilangaMask added Fly Warrior, Karma, Electro Boy vs Oficial AK47, Oficial 911, Kastigador vs Astro Rey Jr., Benji Maverick, Psico Kid (as the Guardians of the Galaxy) to the 10/25 Coacalco show and the Indystrongtibles trio of Impulos, Arez, Belial against Monterrey locals Xtreme Dragon, Dralion and Rey Orion to the 10/26 Arena Solidaridad show.
Ovett & Angel o Demonio broke up on the DTU shows this weekend.
Rob has highlights of 06/13/14 CMLL.
Segunda Caida reviews El Hijo Del Santo & Mil Mascaras vs. Blue Panther & Arkangel de la Muerte
Black Danger, said to be from Guataemala, lost his mask in Michoacan.
XMW will have a show on 11/01 at Gimnasio Gloria (named “Una Noche Mas” because the previous show at Gimnasio Gloria was thought to be the last ever one there.)

Octagon was signing autographs in Ciudad Juarez yesterday, only Octagon says it wasn’t him! Who goes around being a fake Octagon?
