Felina looked nervous at times in this hardcore match.
5) Tornado (DF) b Yoruba ©, Ricky Marvin [XMW LH] Yoruba accident (posted by tvluchadelpasado)
Ricky Marvin (added to the main) went for a standing moonsault on both guys but his knee clocked Yoruba in the chin. Yoruba was knocked out for minutes and had to be taken for medical help. The match continued and Marvin beat Tornado.

Arez beat Fenix to keep the title.

Wotan defeated Necro in the usual insanity

Black Terry Jr. also has photos of the WWS show at the Toy Museum, where the rudas pulled the tecnica’s masks in the main event, only the tecnicas had their faces painted up for the holiday and rolled up the rudas for the win.

Tecnicos took 2/3
5) Felino, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas © DQ La Máscara, La Sombra, Rush [MEX TRIOS] Felino, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas u00a9 vs La Mascara, La Sombra, Rush for the Mexican National Trios Championship, on DailyMotion (posted by thecubsfan)
Peste Negra took falls 2/3 to keep the titles. Rush gave them the last fall, fouling Negro Casas right in front of the refree. 3rd defense
6) Último Guerrero b Atlantis Atlantis vs Ultimo Guerrero (posted by thecubsfan)
Ultimo Guerrero, who had been working as Mictlan all evening again, attacked Atlantis from behind. In a completely by the numbers match between the two of them, UG took falls 1/3 to get the win.

Starting with the the third match, “Mictlan”‘s warriors of the undead would come out and drag the losers to hell (a side exist.)  Probably a good idea to start with the third match and not drag off women.

The presentation was unique but I didn’t really get into the matches and was disappointed by the semimain.

CMLL (SUN)11/02/2014 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara[@acogdl]
1) Dr. Frezzer bRelampago Azul
2) Jocker & Thunder Boy b El Divino & Javier Cruz Jr.
Rudos took 1/3.
3) Leo & Virgo bDemonio Maya & Magnum
Tecnicos took 1/3, and Maya & Magnum had issues.
4) Tritón b Mr. Trueno [lightning]
5) Bárbaro Cavernario b Rey Cometa
finish not actually listed, taking a wild guess
6) Titán & Volador Jr. b Gran Guerrero & Mr. Águila
Tecnicos took 2/3.

Maybe Cometa actually won! (He probably didn’t.) I have no idea why you’d turn Magnum or “Demonio”.

Lucha Underground posted the Johnny Mundo vs Prince Puma match online. This went up right after the first Unimas airing; perhaps they’re not allowed to post any part of the show online until it airs on their partner network. Meanwhile, a Univision story on Sexy Star includes a lot of in-ring clips from the next two episodes.

DTU announced six stops for the their 7th Anniversary tour, then said the last stop would be determined by a poll on Facebook between five other stops. In usual lucha libre booking, everyone wins and they’re going to all five additional stops – which makes it eleven shows in seventeen days.

12/04 – Arena Xalapa
12/05 – Cordoba, Veracruz
12/06 – Arena Union (Veracruz)
12/07 – Rio Blanco, Veracruz
12/13 – Arena Roberto Paz
12/14 – Gimnasio Paralimpico (Irapuato)
12/16 – Arena Aficion
12/18 – Auto Lavado VM (Tulancingo)
12/19 – Arena Queretaro
12/20 – Arena Lopez Mateos
12/21 – Nueva Arena Poza Rica

That’s a lot of shows. I hope DTU does well and doesn’t bankrupt themselves on this. That 12/07 show is the same day as Guerra de Titanes.

Meanwhile, the ChilangaMask show on 11/23 in Coliseo Coacalco is it’s final show of the year. (The December show is a Lucha Memes show.) Sagrado vs Arez has been added to the show.

CMLL’s annual bodybuilding contest is on 11/26. They haven’t mentioned in publicly yet, which is a change from the usual hype. They might have just been waiting for after this weekend’s shows.

Rob has highlights on 07/08/14 CMLL.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.

Super Libre had hype for Golden Tirado show.

Segunda Caida has a workrate report for Lucha Underground episode 1, a review of Lucha Azteca 09/13 and a review of Hechicero & Terry vs Navarro & Trauma II. There are a lot of good matches to buy Black Terry Jr. from the last few weeks.

Shocker talks about his career.

DJ Spectro writes about the writing career of Antonio Pena.

Lucha Libre in Japan

11/01 Wrestle-1: Alberto b Masakatsu Funaki
(Also, Hijo del Pantera’s team won!)

11/02 Dragon Gate: Flamita (c) b Jimmy Kanda [BRAVE GATE] – 6th Defense. Flamita can not be beat.


CMLL (SUN) 11/09/2014 Arena Coliseo
1) Bengala & Leono vs Apocalipsis & Espanto Jr.
2) Astral, Bam Bam, Eléctrico vs Mercurio, Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Olímpico
3) Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr., Rey Cometa vs Misterioso Jr., Pierroth, Sagrado
4) Valiente vs Niebla Roja [lightning]
5) Ángel de Oro, Máximo, Super Porky vs Rey Bucanero, Terrible, Vangellys
6) La Máscara, Titán, Volador Jr. vs Gran Guerrero, Mephisto, Pólvora

Well, that main is going to go nowhere. Valiente/Roja is the best hope on the show. Minis match might be good – Mercurio & Nitro are a secret tag team going after Astral & Electrico’s secret minis tag team gold. (CMLL storylines are much better when you just make them up.)

CMLL (SUN) 11/09/2014 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Explosivo vs El Yaqui
2) Índigo vs Demonio Rojo
3) El Brillante vs Demonio Maya
4) Exterminador, Leo, Virgo vs Magnum, Mr. Trueno, Rey Trueno
5) Esfinge & Stuka Jr. vs Hechicero & Jocker
6) Diamante Azul & Rush vs Euforia & Último Guerrero

A show. Rush can lose to UG here too, I guess.

All Elite (THU) 11/13/2014 Arena Puebla
1) Flyer & Magnus vs Dinamic Black & Principe Diamante
2) Ángel de Oro, Cachorro (CMLL), Dragon Lee II vs Emperador Azteca (IWRG), Golden Magic, Metaleon
3) Atlantis & Extreme Tiger vs Hernandez & Súper Nova
4) Dr. Wagner Jr. & La Sombra vs Rush & Zumbi
5) LA Park & Volador Jr. vs Chavo Guerrero Jr. & Último Guerrero

All Elite (SAT) 11/15/2014 Arena Coliseo
1) Flyer & Magnus vs Dinamic Black & Principe Diamante
2) Ángel de Oro, Cachorro (CMLL), Dragon Lee II vs Emperador Azteca (IWRG), Golden Magic, Metaleon
3) Rush & Zumbi vs Hernandez & Súper Nova
4) LA Park & Volador Jr. vs Atlantis & Extreme Tiger
5) Dr. Wagner Jr. & La Sombra vs Chavo Guerrero Jr. & Último Guerrero

Full card for the mysterious All Elite shows. Someone’s got a lot of money behind it (and Luchas 2000 is tied up in some way.)  Chavo inclusion in the main event is both weird and probably irrelevant. LA Park would be back way ahead of schedule fi he actually wrestled on these cards.

WWA (FRI) 12/05/2014 Auditorio de Tijuana, Tijuana, Baja California
1) Black Spider, Extasis, Memo Velasquez vs Animaniac, Enfermero Jr., Maldito
2) Octagoncito (original) © vs Piratita Morgan [WWA MINI]
Lobito was the last known Minis champion in 2012. Octagoncito lost the title to the previous champion, Mascarita Plateada in 2011 but magically has the belt back
3) Datura vs Lady Apache [WWA Women]
vacant title. Last known champion was Ayako Hamada in 2003.
4) Rayman & Rey Horuz vs Bestia 666 & Damián 666 [WWA TAG]
vacant title. Rayman & Rayo Jr. were the last known champions in 2012, though there was supposed to be a tournament for them on a July show in Tijuana.
5) Casandro vs Cotton Candy, Rubi Gardenia [WWA EXOTICO]
new title
6) Súper Muñeco, Súper Pinocho, Súper Ratón © vs Arandú, Infierno, TJ Boy [WWA TRIOS]
3rd defense
7) Negro Casas vs Diamante Azul (CMLL)
8) Atlantis vs Último Guerrero

Notable for having five title matches which will make more an effect on people who keep track of title histories than anyone who actually bought the tickets (but at least Trio Fantasia are the actual champs.) Also, why do that Negro Casas?
