Debut for Makoto & Narumiya. Rudas took 2/3.
4) Rey Cometa DQ Niebla Roja [lightning]
6:27. Niebla Roja accidentally fouled Rey Cometa on a flapjack kick

Tecnicos took 2/3
6) Atlantis, Stuka Jr., Valiente b Bárbaro Cavernario, Felino, Negro Casas
Tecnicos took 1/3, Atlantis beating Negro Casas.
The foul in the lightning match was after a complicated set up to Niebla Roja’s flapjack toss and kick to chest, only the kick didn’t hit the chest. Rey Cometa sold it like a foul so there was no choice but to call the DQ, but it was fluke ending to a match.
Not much going on. I watched Valiente/Mephisto last night – it was good! – but that was from a few weeks ago and they’re no sign of the usual monthly big match here. maybe they’ll throw together something next week.

El Rayo, Vida de Lucha, the ‘reality’ show on Rayo de Plata promotions in San Luis Potosi is coming back for a second season. They list a premiere date of “first quarter 2015”, which probably means they’ve already started taping. Last season was 13 episodes, no mention of how many episodes this time. Apparently it did very well on video on demand.
Over on the UKFF forum, a thread about with one of the people who ran the Wrestling Channel mentions the process of getting CMLL onto the station: they started out talking to Paco Alonso, but were passed over to Sandra Granados (who remains the head of the press department) and was hard to reach. TWC offered $800 an episode, CMLL sent them a random bit of episodes, TWC attempted to pay CMLL via the bank details they sent, the bank said the details weren’t correct, TWC tried many times to get ahold of CMLL to get the correct info and CMLL never would respond. They say they tried their best to pay but never could, so they ended up with the CMLL episodes for free. (And then they canceled the show when no one was watching it.)
That is a perfect CMLL story. I wonder how many other times they’ve just failed to get money that was owed to them due to apathy. Also, why haven’t I tried to do for free lucha?
Silver King, who used to team with a Silver King Jr. and declared that he was his son, now says Silver King Jr. is a fraud. Someone didn’t get paid.
Speaking of relatives, the Pentagon Jr. bio on Lucha Underground acknowledged he’s Fenix’s brother and implies that’ll be brought up on TV, which would be the first time they’ve done that. Also, the Drago bio is years out of date unless the Bizarros are working some D-level AAA spots shows
Los Fulgors, Keira and the RCH promoter will appear on Tercara Caida today.
CMLL Informa will have Makota, Narumiya, Estrellita, Amapola and Diamante Azul as guests.
Segunda Caida reviews Atlantis, Máximo, Rush vs Felino, Negro Casas, Rey Escorpión from 06/08/2014 CMLL.
Texano says Alberto will be a disappointed loser, just like Blue Demon and Mesias.
AAA writes about Alberto’s upcoming schedule: to the UK this weekend and to Japan at the end of the month.
There will be a wrestling art show and panel discussions at a expo in Tijuana.
Lucha Libre in Japan
Fuego and Mascara Dorada are headed back to NJPW for their Best of Super Juniors tag team tournament. They’ve surprisingly been set on different teams. Mascara Dorada teams with BUSHI versus ROH’s ReDragon team (who seem like they have a good shot to win the entire tournament, so Dorada’s odds aren’t great.) Fuego teams with Ryusuke Taguchi – Taguchi’s old partner moved to Florida to learn how to drive or something, so they brought in someone who can dance with him. They face Taichi and Desperado in the first round, though Taguchi was hurt on the last NJPW show and seems to be a question mark here. The first round match ups are on 10/25, the semifinals are on 11/01 and 11/02, and the final is on 11/03. The entire tour goes to the 8th, so Fuego and Dorada are probably out of CMLL after next Tuesday’s show until the Puebla show on 11/10 or the Tuesday shows on the 11th.
