CMLL (FRI) 10/31/2014 Arena México [CMLL]
1) Artillero & Súper Comando b Hombre Bala & Súper Halcón Jr.
2) Boby Zavala, Raziel, Virus b Dragon Lee, Pegasso, Tritón
3) Máximo, Rey Cometa, Titán b Cavernario, Felino, Hechicero
4) Euforia, Gran Guerrero, Pólvora DQ La Máscara, La Sombra, Stuka Jr.
Vangellys was originally announced (when the card was announced a week early), but replaced by Polvora seven days prior. Mascara & Sombra refused to help Stuka and eventually unmasked Euforia & Gran Guerrero for the DQ.
5) Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas, Thunder b Atlantis, Diamante Azul, Volador Jr.
Thunder defeated Atlantis, but the big news LA Park and Hijo de LA Park showing up at the end of the match. LA Park made an open challenge to anyone in CMLL; no one took him up today.
6) Último Guerrero b Rush
All rudos (and referees) were wearing body and face paint to resemble calavera (traditional Mexican skulls for this holiday) or scary masks for the occasion. A mystery man playing the role of Mictlan (leader of the undead, not the former wrestler) was commanding the “dead” wrestlers during the show – and the man was revealed to be Ultimo Guerrero before this match. UG snuck in a foul for the win. Sombra & Mascara ran out to attack UG with Gran Guerrero & Euforia making the save.

Photos of last night’s show are worth checking out. CMLL went all out with the concept (and will do so again on Sunday.) It’s a bit too perfect timing for LA Park to return to CMLL at a Dia Los Muertos show.

Main event seems to be setting up a trios title match, which lowers the odds of the Ingobernables winning the Other trios titles Sunday.

There’s more new lucha TV this week. Univsion (US)’s Republica Deportiva sports will start airing a lucha libre reality show/tournament as part of it’s normal broadcast (Sundays at 11am Eastern.) This show was taping in Arena Lopez Mateos a few weeks ago, apparently for this tournament. Many years ago, AAA did something similar for an Alas de Oro tournament. This one features indy guys, some who are unknown: Águila Solitaria, Águila Solitaria Jr., Rey Vikingo, Sangre Imperial, Radar y Tony Rivera. I have no more info than that, but will record the first show and let you know.

Rob has highlights of 07/04/14 CMLL.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update and video of Hijo del Santo & Black Shadow Jr. vs Espanto Jr. & Eskeletor.

Black Terry Jr. has highlights of Hechicero vs Black Terry.

DTU posted the Angel de Oro vs Ovett title match and announced Ciclope & Drastick Boy vs the Dragoned de Oriente in an apuesta match for their upcoming Queretaro show.

Arena Solidardad has been renammed Arena Jose Sulaiman after the boxing official. (Although I might still keep calling it the wrong name for record keeping.)

CaraLucha has a Violento Jack & Aeroboy promo.

Cronicas y Leyendas looks back at Rene Guajardo taking Halcon de Oro’s mask.

6) La Máscara, La Sombra, Rush vs Euforia, Thunder, Último Guerrero

Main event continues the Ingobernables vs Guerreros feud.

Panther versus Cavernario looks like another good Cavernario match in a year of them. Segunda would be good if Nitro was replaced.
