Tecnicos took 2/3
3) La Seductora, Tiffany, Zeuxis b Estrellita, Goya Kong, Princesa Sugehit
Rudas took 1/3. Zeuxis beat Estrellita with La Roca and challenged her for a title shot. Estrellta said no.
4) Tritón b Raziel [lightning]  (posted by VideosOficialesCMLL)
Triton won with his legdrop.
5) Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr., Stuka Jr. b Ephesto, Hechicero, Vangellys
Vangellys replaced Mephisto on Monday. Tecnicos took 2/3.
6) Blue Panther, Dragón Rojo Jr., La Sombra b Mephisto, Rey Bucanero, Terrible
Mephisto replaced Barbaro Cavernario. Dragon Rojo’s return from injury. Tecnicos took 1/3. Sombra used the ropes to beat Terrible in the first. Panther submitted Mephisto & Rey Bucanero in the third.

Estrellita kind of owes Zeuxis a title shot from missing a match in Puebla in injury, but it’s going to take a couple more weeks.

Echoing similar claims by Alberto, Myzteziz said he too sometimes problems with racism in WWE. Sometimes people would say racist things or make racist jokes, but Myzteziz never complained about it. Myzteziz noted he never had that problem with the fans, who were very good to him. Myzteziz teases a reveal about why he really left WWE the way he did and the suggests it’s similar to Alberto (he was going to make much more money in Mexico so why stay.) All that said, Myzteziz said he would be open to working for WWE or in the US again.

The Enmascarado Race, scheduled for next weekend, has been postponed to “sometime first half of 2015”. It was a run on Mexico City’s Paseo de la Reforma coming up in a couple Sundays. AAA was sponsoring it, with promos on TV the last couple weeks. There’s no reason given for the delay, except for saying the race organizers and AAA are not responsible. (That leaves the Mexico City department of sports.) There’s full refund info at the link.

CMLL has an article talking about Niebla Roja & Puma being in Europe at the moment. Magnus is unmentioned. He does appear to be refereeing (in mask) and not wrestling on this tour, but it’s not like CMLL’s specifically mentioned what anyone is doing in this show (no mention of wrestling Cassandro.) This is not a one time thing, CMLL’s consistently ignored Magnus being on this tour for whatever weird political reason.

Lucha Underground’s second episode is tonight. The episode title is “Los Demonios” and the TV preview is “Catrina warns Blue Demon Jr of 1000 deaths; Mundo and Puma are feeling vengeful; Sexy Star and Chavo battle Son of Havoc and Ivelisse.”

Matches taped for this episode
Johnny Mundo & Prince Puma vs Cortez Castro & Mr. Cisco <- the two non Ezekial Jackson people from the angle at the end of the show.
Chavo Guerrero Jr. & Sexy Star vs Ivelisse Vélez & Son of Havoc
Blue Demon Jr vs Mil Muertes <- El Mesias

The first show had the Puma/Mundo match and the third show has the Fenix/Drago/Pentagon match. There’s no match like that on this show and it’s the early episode I’m least excited about. Maybe it’ll look better than it read. The previous week’s episode will prior to this one. It appears El Rey will eventually have the last thee episodes airing each week right up to the new episode

Today’s Wednesday, so both CMLL Informa and Tercera Caida are new, but I’m writing this too early to know who’s the guest on either show.

Recent Legend Inmortales shows posters have had logos for Teleformula on it, and it looks like they’re actually getting a TV show on the network. At a press conference Sunday, the promotion announced their show on Teleformula will air Sundays at 6pm starting this weekend.  Teleformula previously aired IWRG and CMLL lucha libre. They promoted Canek, Fuerza Guerrera, El Fantasma, Lady Apache and Mascara Ano 2000 as top stars, which should give you an idea of the matches. Teleformula airs in the Mexico and US (if you have the right package) with the same feed; something called “Road TV” is listed in that spot right now, but Teleformula’s listings aren’t very accurate.

Rob has highlights of 07/05/14 AAA.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.

Segunda Caida reviews Rey Hechicero & Black Terry and Rush vs Negro Casas.

Marcela, Goya Kong and Muneca de Plata are headed to Japan for REINA next month. All will be on the 12/12 show (and they’re teasing a Marcela title defense) and the two daughters of Super Porky are staying around for a 12/26 show. Marcela’s also headed back to New York soon.

The Son of Frankenstein, the Infernal Hunchback, a Zombie and La Llorona lost the main event of Sunday’s Arena Aficion show.


CMLL (TUE) 11/11/2014 Arena México
1) Acero & Aéreo vs Mercurio & Pequeño Universo 2000
2) Magnus, Oro Jr., Soberano Jr. vs Artillero, Hijo del Signo, Súper Comando
3) Dark Angel, Estrellita, Goya Kong vs Dalys, Tiffany, Zeuxis
4) Titán vs Pólvora [lightning]
5) Rey Cometa, Stuka Jr., Super Porky vs Gran Guerrero, Misterioso Jr., Niebla Roja
6) Felino, Kráneo, Mr. Niebla vs Blue Panther, Diamante Azul, Dragón Rojo Jr.

Titan/Polvora and segunda both look good. Estrellita and Zeuxis continue feuding.

CMLL (TUE) 11/11/2014 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) El Divino & Metatrón vs Évola & Infierno
2) Esfinge, Hombre Bala Jr., Súper Halcón Jr. vs Canelo Casas, Guerrero Negro Jr., Maléfico
3) Delta, Fuego, Guerrero Maya Jr. vs Hechicero, Hombre sin Nombre, Virus
4) Máximo vs Negro Casas [lightning]
5) Atlantis, Máscara Dorada, Volador Jr. vs Euforia, Rey Bucanero, Último Guerrero

That’s the first ever Maximo/Negro Casas singles match as far I know. Tercera could be pretty fun.

  1. Mistico is so right about how good the fans were. I remember going to Extreme Rules in Tampa. Mistico had been on tv maybe a handful of times and I could not believe how many kids were running around with his expensive mask. He made such an instant impact.

    I think fans now want a luchador on the roster at all times. At NXT spot shows fans chant, “Lucha. Lucha. Lucha” for Lucha Dragons.

    Tomorrow is the 20 year anniversary of When Worlds Collide.
