Dorada/Casas set for next week, Azteca Warfare rules, FantasticaMania TV

AAA (THU) 12/25/2014 Arena Neza [Estrellas del Ring, Tercera Caida]
1) Bugambilia, Diosa Atenea, Lady Dragón b Golden Bull, India Mazagua, Star Fire
2) Pandemonium, Pandemonium Jr., Xibalba b Gato Montes, Rey De Oros, Rey Infierno
3) Cirujano, Gran Markus, Hijo de Gran Markus b Henry, Neza Kid, Warrior Steel Jr.
4) Rey Neza b Motocross [mask]
Rey Neza took 2/3 to win the mask, the last with Motocross’ own Nudo Motorizado. Motocross is Javier Perez Martinez, 8 years, from Ixtapaluca, EDM
5) Myzteziz b Averno, Dr. Wagner Jr.
listed as for a middleweight title, but no title was on the line. Averno accidentally fouled Wagner, Mistico pinned him, Mistica on Averno for the win.

Looked like a good turn out.

Over in Arena Aficion, La Mascara betrayed Volador Jr. to cost the tecnicos the main event. That set up a singles match next week – so after all their issues the last couple months, the only place the singles match seems to be happening is a 1/4 full Arena Aficion.

In Arena Azteca Budokhan, Oriental, Fenix and Drago defeated Pentagon, Cuervo and Daga in the main event. Comando Rivera & Mayan lost their hair and mask to Demoledor & (local) Puma – Mayan is Edgar Hernandez.

CMLL (FRI) 12/26/2014 Arena México
1) Flyer & Starman b Akuma & Hijo del Signo
Starman replaced Molotov, who’s been advertised but hasn’t actually returned.
2) Okumura, Puma, Virus b Hombre Bala Jr., Oro Jr., Súper Halcón Jr.
Virus beat Hombre Bala with the Rotovirus
3) Guerrero Maya Jr., Super Porky, The Pantherb Ephesto, Hechicero, Mephisto
Tecnicos took 1/3.
4) Máscara Dorada & Negro Casas b Rey Cometa, Tritón, Sangre Azteca, Delta, Pólvora, Titán, Kamaitachi, Fuego[CMLL WELTER, cibernetico]
vacant championship; Mistico gave it up after being hit by a car. Battle royal determined sides. Elimination order: Fuego, Sangre Azteca, Rey Cometa, Triton, Delta, Kamaitachi, Polvora, Titan leaving Mascara Dorada & Negro Casas to advance to next week. Triton & Delta feuded.
5) Mr. Niebla, Rey Bucanero, Shocker b Máximo, Valiente, Volador Jr.
Rudos took 1/3. Volador beat Bucanero in the third, but he slipped back in and fouled Volador to set up the Terrible win.

CMLL and Gonzalo noted it was a better than usual turnout. Mr. Niebla was dressed up as Niebla Claus in the main event. The cibernetico looks like good and appears to have turned into a Casas/Titan/Dorada three way by the end. Kamaitachi made it pretty far for him.

The highlight reel of the show is already up; Negro Casas wisely stays out of the way in the cibernetico until late, letting everyone else kill each other.

Terrible beat La Mascara
5) Cien Caras, Máscara Año 2000, Universo 2000 b Atlantis, Brazo de Oro, Rayo de Jalisco Jr.
Cien snuck in a foul on Rayo.

I’d be concerned that is setting up a rematch, but it’s more likely it’s just going nowhere.

Atomic Boy is back in action; he won Copa Rosales last night on an AAA house show. Mistica on Pentagon Jr. in the main event.

The LK wrestling review debut podcast had an interview with Lucha Underground’s Chris DeJoseph and got him to spill the rules for Azteca Warfare. It’s about 13:30 in.

  • Luchadors will enter in intervals
  • It’s an elimination style match.
  • No DQ, No Countout, No Over The Top eliminations.
  • Eliminations only by pinfall or elimination.
  • he match is the entire hour.

NJPW’s taping schedule for FantasticaMania is:
01/14 (Kagawa) will not be taped
01/13, 01/15, 01/17 (Osaka, Kyote, small Tokyo show) are taped for SamuraiTV but are not on
01/18 & 01/19 (Korakuen Hall) are on NJPWWorld.

The SamuraiTV shows have surfaced in the past. The big matches are usually on those last two shows. Lineups should be announced after NJPW’s 01/04 show.

On his press tour for the NJPW show, Jeff Jarrett suggested he’s having discussions about GFW also airing TripleMania on US PPV.

Stay alert if you’re in the front row of a lucha show.

BxB Fly has a music video of 10/06/14 Puebla

LV reviews the Arena Naucalpan Anniversary show.

Notimex’s recap of the years says it was the year of Alberto and Atlantis. They mention Aerostar too, so I guess you could say it was truly a AAA year.

Challenger won Kráneo el Anarquista’s hair in Oaxaca on 12/20.

Monterrey’s 5X is running for office in San Pedro Garza Garcia, Nuevo Leon, and revealed his identity (Alvaro Suarez) in the process. The funny thing is, the theory we had was 5X was a shared identity between multiple people.

This sure looks like a poster for this weekend at Arena Coliseo San Luis Potosi, which shut down forever a few weeks ago. Maybe they’re calling something else Arena Coliseo now.

The Canek vs Mr. Jack match is happening on 01/13 in Arena Aficion, buy your tickets before they all sell out. It’s only a (IWL) heavyweight title match, they’ll have to move to a 40,000 seat bull ring for the mask match.


AAA SANCHEZ (THU) 01/01/2015 Arena Neza
1) Holkan, Imperio Negro, Lord Freeze vs Golden Bull, Taquero Maldito, Tony Cirio Jr.
2) Bryan El Estreper, Dr. Cerebro, Rey Lobo, Rey Lobo Jr. vs Mike Segura, Pandemonium, Pandemonium Jr., Xibalba
3) Chico Che, Neza Kid, Rey Neza vs Cirujano Jr., Maldito Jr., Motocross
4) Myzteziz vs Dr. Wagner Jr., Averno, Hijo del Dr. Wagner Jr., Gran Markus, Hijo de Gran Markus, Trauma I, Trauma II [mask]

After all these years, Dr. Wagner is clearly going to lose his mask to (one of a dozen) Gran Markus in this cage match. What a conclusion.

CMLL (FRI) 01/02/2015 Arena México
1) Magnus & Starman vs Disturbio & Metálico
2) Dark Angel, La Vaquerita, Princesa Sugehit vs Amapola, Dalys, Zeuxis

4) Ángel de Oro, Máximo, Super Porky vs Ephesto, Kráneo, Mephisto
5) Atlantis, La Máscara, Volador Jr. vs Euforia, Mr. Niebla, Terrible
6) Máscara Dorada vs Negro Casas [CMLL WELTER, final]
final for Mistico’s vacant title. Dorada previously beat Casas in 2010 to win this title.

The Volador and Rey Bucanero thing just goes away. I guess they still have time on the 10th if they really want to do it.

Mr. Niebla handles the video promo.

IWRG (SUN) 01/04/2015 Arena Naucalpan
1) Alfa & Black Niko vs Anubis Black & Araña de Plata

5) Hijo De Dos Caras, Relámpago, Súper Nova vs Chicano, Danny Casas, Hijo de Máscara Año 2000

More Neza Boys in to take on the Turtles. Dr. Killer has appeared on FILL shows, Roller Boy is a new name (or a wrong name.)

  1. A few comments… I too think that what Astro Rey Jr. and Sky Man did was stupid. Flying off a high place doesn’t make you a better wrestler. It’s not entertaining, unless you like seeing people possibly get a life threatning injury. Most of these guys don’t get paid well, and probably don’t have medical insurance (I could be wrong,though), so doing these kind of “stunts” doesn’t make any sense. I’d hate for one of these guys to end their carreer like Hayabusa.
