Polvora defeated Dragon Rojo and demanded a title match.
5) Negro Casas & Shocker © b La Máscara & Máximo [CMLL TAG]
Maximo kissed Mascara by mistake, which led to the finish. They were not happy with each other after the match. Shocker & Negro Casas second defense.

Today is Delta & Guerrero Maya Jr. vs Barbaro Cavernario & Hechicero. It should be great. I have no idea who’s going to win. Delta & Maya are the regular team, Cavernario and Hechicero are not in the same group, and, whether by coincidence or plan, these Arena Coliseo Tag Team championships never change hands in Arena Mexico. On the other hand, this feels a lot like Titan’s En Busca de un Idolo year, where he didn’t win the title match he got from the tournament but finished the year by winning a different title because CMLL realized he was actually really good. And CMLL’s definitely realized Cavernario is really good based on how they’ve used him of late. (Hechicero is also not bad.) I’m thinking Maya & Delta probably retain but I’m not sure.

Blue Panther Jr. vs Sangre Azteca are the lightning match, and should be on YouTube sometime around 9pm. Main event is a Rey Cometa, Super Porky, Valiente versus Ephesto, Hombre sin Nombre and Mephisto trios; the preview suggests HsN is a permanent member of the trio but this is first time all three have teamed up in a while. The Cholo/Ramstein vs Soberano/Star Jr. feud has made it’s way over to Tuesdays, and the rudos have won every match in the feud so far. If that mask match is happening on 01/06, a holiday, then they’re about 3 weeks away from it and maybe still too early to announce it.

Guadalajara’s main event is a similiar to Sunday’s Terra one: Atlantis, Marco and Sombra versus REy Bucanero, Shocker and Terrible. Zeuxis versus Princesa Sugehit meet in the lightning match.

Octagon says he left AAA in March to work on the indies, then was really confused he wasn’t booked on any of the AAA big shows and was fired in October. I do not understand so many things, and that last sentence is one of them. Octagon says he’s not suing for the name – because he says he owns the name – but he wants back pay, vacation and anything else owed to him by the law. Octagon says he’s taking up the cause for Fuerza Guerrera, Tirantes and the guys who became CMLL’s Invasors – he didn’t seem to be behind that cause until now. Those guys also sued AAA for similar reasons and made it sound like they were going to get something out of it but Histeria, Psicosis and Alebrije all gave up using there name on TV eventually. I have no idea how this is going to turn out, but it does seem clear that Octagon wants to being a lot of attention to it because he’s been doing interviews about it on TV for the last couple of weeks.

Hooligan, who’s definitely the current Hombre sin Nombre, is listed as working in Arena Olimpico Laguna. Which is strange, because Hombre sin Nombre (and Dragon Rojo) are booked on the Saturday debut Arena Coliseo show.

El Bandolero was unmasked by Skayde Jr. on Sunday. Bandolero is Elias Rodriguez, 27 years old, from Ponce, Puerto Rico.

This is a thing. It’s the Lucharama Expo, with free admission and the usual bit of people selling merchandise at tables along with the matches. I’m not even sure if these are all the matches, they’re just the ones announced so far on their Facebook. There will also be a photo exhibition with the best Black Terry Jr., Zao, and Rostro Oculto photos to battle it out. (There’s a funny skit to set that up.) May go to 11.

12/13-14 lucha videos

Updated 5pm with Leyendas Inmortales

La Lucha Se Le Hace was a repeat. TVD Feed wasn’t working for Puebla. Puedo pagar 9 dólares y ver todos los espectáculos NJPW, pero ninguna cantidad de dinero puede conseguir a mí Rush contra Sr. Niebla.

IWRG never aired the Wednesday show. Or they’re going to air it out of order, that’s always possible.

Leyenda Inmortales was also recorded and will go up sometime later.
