CMLL (TUE) 12/30/2014 Arena México [CMLL, Notimex]
1) Acero & Fantasy b Mercurio & Pequeño Universo 2000
2) Sensei, Soberano Jr., Star Jr. b Cholo, Inquisidor, Ramstein
straight falls. Star Jr. & Soberano again demanded a  mask match, and Cholo & Ramstein agreed this time.
3) Hombre Bala Jr., Stigma, Súper Halcón Jr. b Arkángel de la Muerte, Hijo del Signo, Nitro
4) Sangre Azteca b Pegasso [lightning]  (posted by Rob Viper)
Sangre submitted Pegasso in 7:22.
5) Blue Panther Jr., La Máscara, Super Porky b Morphosis, Niebla Roja, Olímpico
Tecnicos took 2/3.
6) Máximo, Valiente, Volador Jr. b Felino, Negro Casas, Rey Bucanero
Tecnicos took 1/3, Volador sneaking in a foul on Rey Bucanero. Volador said they all forgot Volador knows how to be a rudo too, and he wants that hair match. Bucanero declined.

More Volador/Bucanero in the main event, but it’s going somewhere.

CMLL recap doesn’t list the opener, calls Morphosis “Histeria.”

Dorada’s going to need more luck on Friday.

No known shows anywhere due to New Year’s Eve. That makes some sense for Christmas, but it does feel like the night for a crazy hardcore show (with the ring blowing up at midnight, that sounds like something they’ve actually done in Japan.) There’s a monsoon of shows tomorrow.

I missed this from a week ago, but El Hijo del Santo said Todo x el Todo will return and is interested in hiring Octagon, but believes signing Alberto or Myzteziz would not be viable. No dates or locations were specified. Santo also ‘reveals’ he and the late Jose Sulaiman were planning on creating a national commission for lucha libre, to combat issues like Silver King putting his mask back on and Konnan Big’s continued existence.

Mr. Niebla pulled Atlantis’ mask for the DQ on Monday in Puebla.

LA Park defeated Atlantis & Dr. Wagner Jr. in a usual foul/mask pull filled match in Monterrey. They’re still teasing Park vs Atlantis.

Sunny War Cloud passed away yesterday.

Toro Bill Jr. won the Arena Coliseo San Ramon Copa Junior tournament, over Paris.

Caifan & Silver Star defeated Negro Navarro & Dr. Cerbero in a great match in Terraza Elma (outside of Monterrey) on Sunday.

Sarcistan del Diablo took Dr. Boris’ mask in Arena Aficion. Dr. Boris is Daniel Quiterio.

Shira took Dama de Hierro’s hair in Monterrey.

Nicho says he’s suspended from Juarez for a month for hitting a security person during a brawl. That must’ve been on the 12/13 show, when he and Damian faces Aereo & Pagano.

LLNEI has photos of the LuchaRama show. The building looks packed.

Impulso talked about his upcoming handicap match against Pagano.

RobViper has music videos of AAA March 1994 Toluca, mid February 2000 AAA, and 09/07/14 AAA.

Black Terry Jr. has highlights of Super Nova vs Trauma II and a trios match from Christmas Day’s CaraLuchas show. +LuchaTV has highlights of the first match too.

Sunday’s Fuego en el Ring had Titan as a guest. Super Libre interviews Malefico.

Segunda Caida reviewed Terrible, Texano Jr., Vangelis vs Héctor Garza, Hijo del Fantasma, La Máscara


CMLL (TUE) 01/06/2015 Arena México
1) Magnus & Starman vs Apocalipsis & Inquisidor
2) Dark Angel, Estrellita, Princesa Sugehit vs Dalys, La Comandante, La Seductora
3) Astral vs Eléctrico, Fantasy, Último Dragoncito, Shockercito, Demus 3:16, Pierrothito, Pequeño Olímpico, Pequeño Nitro, Mercurio [Pequeno Reyes del Aire]
4) Soberano Jr. & Star Jr. vs Cholo & Ramstein [mask]
5) Dragón Rojo Jr., La Máscara, Marco Corleone vs Euforia, Gran Guerrero, Último Guerrero
6) Volador Jr. vs Rey Bucanero

Instead of doing main events on Friday and Sunday, they’ve moved them all to Tuesday. Volador and Rey Bucanero have their singles match and the Pequeno Reyesl del Aire takes place. It’s a pretty packed show.

past Pequeno Reyes del Aire winners
2007: Pequeno Damian 666
2008: Mascarita Dorada
2009: Pequeno Warrior
2012: Ultimo Dragoncito
2012 (GDL): Pequeno Warrior
2013: Aereo
2014: Electrico

No Stukita this year, but a good group of rudos. Nitro & Mercurio are the best secret tag team of 2014.

recent January apuesta matches
2014: none (they did an undercard Copa Junior instead)
2013: Bobby Zavala & Disturbio b Leono & Tigre Blanco – end of Tigre Blanco in CMLL
2012: Hombre Bala Jr. & Super Halcon b Rayo Tapatio I & Rayo Tapatio II – end of Rayo Tapatios in CMLL

Ramstein and Cholo aren’t just underdogs, this could also be the end of one or both of their CMLL careers.

Not to run this bit into the ground but: the kid’s focused Three Kings Day would’ve be a great time for Mistico to return. Mistico is still not back. Mistico’s said to be wrestling in Osaka a week from this show, but I dunno. We’ll know in a few days.

CMLL (TUE) 01/06/2015 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Virgo vs Évola
2) Esfinge & Metatrón vs Exterminador & Maléfico
3) Fuego, Stuka Jr., Super Porky vs Hombre sin Nombre, Kráneo, Olímpico
4) Dragon Lee, Máscara Dorada, Rey Cometa, Titán, Tritón vs Demonio Maya, Ephesto, Mephisto, Mr. Águila, Pierroth [cibernetico]
5) Atlantis, Máximo, Valiente vs Bárbaro Cavernario, Felino, Mr. Niebla

Maximo and Valiente are not going to FantasticaMania because he’s too busy main eventing every single day. Really fun tecnicio side for the random cibernetico, maybe not so much on the rudo side.
