CMLL (FRI) 10/10/2014 Arena México [CMLL, Univision]
1) Akuma & Disturbio b Robin & Soberano Jr.
2) Misterioso Jr., Skándalo, Virus b Black Panther, Pegasso, Tritón
3) Ángel de Oro, Delta, Rey Cometa b Ephesto, Felino, Hechicero
Delta replaced Titan. Hechicero has a new mask (and wore his Poder Y Honor championship to the ring.) Tecnicos took 2/3.
4) Diamante Azul, Marco Corleone, Valiente b Kráneo, Mr. Niebla, Shocker
Shocker and Azul are still feuding.
5) Máximo b Mephisto [Copa Jr. VIP, Copa Jr., final]
Maximo took 2/3 to win the tournament. Money was thrown in. Brazo de Oro and Kahoz were the seconds. Maximo dedicated the win to his mother.
6) La Máscara, La Sombra, Rush b Euforia, Thunder, Último Guerrero
Ingobernables won in straight falls. Clean fall in the first, Rush sneaking in a foul on UG in the second.
Nice upset win for Maximo. This tournament still feels like something put on just to fill a few weeks of shows, but at least maybe they can get something out of down the road.
Main event looks like they’ve moved on to the Ingobernables against the Guerreros. They haven’t moved on from Shocker & Diamante Azul, despite all reason and logic.
Alberto el Patron was honored by the city of San Luis Potosi yesterday. The mayor talked about Alberto’s achievements in sports and being a role model for young people, Alberto noted it was his first visit back in 9 years and gave the mayor credit for making many positive changes. That sort of thing, and the best sort of local promotion for Sunday’s show. In a Q&A, Alberto said he plans on wrestling for “only three or four more years” so he can eventually spend more time with his family. It’s very rare a wrestler says something like that and sticks to it. Alberto might more set on that then most, but it’s something AAA has to find out for sure before they decide on how they’re booking the Perro/Alberto feud. Alberto was mobbed by fans coming/leaving the ceremony.
Rob has highlights from the 06/27/14 CMLL show, including the En Busca de un Idolo cibernetico.
CMLL’s text/video preview for the Dia Los Muertos suggest the shows will not be CMLL vs CMLL, but CMLL vs the Undead. That would be a different booking direction, so that doesn’t seem likely at all.
Impulso and Belial have been added to the CaraLucha tag team tournament. Three to go. Kriminal Boys are surely one.
El Pancracio has a photo and a note from Cuchillo’s funeral: the body was cremated.
SuperLuchas also writes about a Hombre Bala benefit show coming up next month.
DJ Spectro reports a magazine interview with (a previous) Paranoico.

6) La Máscara, La Sombra, Rush vs Gran Guerrero, Niebla Roja, Último Guerrero
Yep, trios title match coming up.
Why does Mascara Dorada have to be in such trying matches? Hoping Dragon Lee & Kamaitachi makes Fox Sports somehow.
indy (SUN) 10/26/2014 Complejo Deportivo de La Inalámbrica, Merida, Yucatán
1) Acuaboy & Mr. Voltio vs Mensajero Del Diablo & Rebelde Punk

5) Dr. Wagner Jr. © vs Último Guerrero [IWL HEAVY]
Lineup is here. If the main event happens as scheduled, it’s the first singles match between Wagner & Guerrero in six and a half years. My records have Dr. Wagner Jr. and Ultimo Guerrero meeting 10 times. I don’t have a result for one match in Guadalajara. Wagner has won nine times. Ultimo Guerrero has won none times.
