IWRG (SUN) 12/14/2014 Arena Naucalpan [Black Terry Jr. (flickr), The Gladiatores]
1) Galaxy b Shadow Boy
Shadow Boy, making his main show debut after appearing on the last two FILL shows, replaced Atomik Star.
2) Hip Hop Man, Liderk, Rayan b Centvrión, Pantera I, Suicida
First match here for Pantera I (at least by this name) since January 2000 – though our notes from that far back have a lot of holes. Mike Segura only hasn’t been here since February 2003. In their big return, they lost to two Comando Elite and Hip Hop Man.
3) Leo, Mike, Rafy, Teelo DQ Apolo Estrada Jr., Canis Lupus, Imposible, Oficial AK47
4) Black Terry & Negro Navarro DQ Trauma I & Trauma II
Traumas used a chian to take the first, then Terry & Navarro were DQed when they got the chain and used it in the second. This didn’t stop Terry and Navarro from attacking the Traumas after the match.
5) Chicano, Hijo de Máscara Año 2000, X-Fly b Hijo De Dos Caras, Relámpago, Toscano
6) Danny Casas DQ Oficial 911 [hair]
Seconds were Apolo Estrada (Danny) and X-Fly in an Team America jersey and funny wig (911). 911 took the first fall quick. Casas used a casita for the second. Both bled in the third fall. X-Fly had the bright idea to throw powder at Danny Casas in the third, ref saw it and called the DQ. Oficial 911 was not thrilled with X-Fly for that one and fought him before getting his hair shaved. AK-47 showed up to attack X-Fly too.
Referees were really calling it tight – chain and dust DQs are unusual, and Oficial 911 gave the commissioner a piece of his mind before getting his hair cut. Show was held early so everyone could go watch the LigaMX final (where American won, so at least X-Fly’s support didn’t curse everyone.)
Arena Puebla tonight has the Negro Casas & Shocker vs Maximo & La Mascara title match. A title change would be a significant surprise.
Just a reminder because people are likely to freak out about it this week: this Wednesday’s Lucha Underground is the last before a break for Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve. It’s off both El Rey and Unimas. (El Rey will air a marathon of episodes on New Years Eve; Unimas will just go back to movies.) This break was planned before the first episode aired, and had nothing to do with whatever they’re doing in the ratings. Lucha Underground has four more episodes taped which will air after that break, and are expected to start taping in January (though there are hints the start date might have shifted a week or so.)
Segunda Caida reviews Black Metal, Metálico, Stigma vs Bárbaro Cavernario, Hijo del Signo, Hooligan.
Dr. Wagner Jr., who had an argument with Sagrado after their match backstage on Saturday, got into an argument with Hijo del Ninja in Monterrey on Sunday. Lots of arguments (or lots of matches attempting to be set up.)
