First tecnico win of the night.
7) Titán © b Bárbaro Cavernario [MEX WELTER]
Titan took falls 2/3 to keep his title in a very good match. Titan’s 7th defense. Money thrown in.

Reaction to the title match was very positive. Crowd appeared to be growing for this shows, or at least up for the main event.

Dragon Lee double stomp on Sagrado

CMLL (SUN) 01/04/2015 Arena México [CMLL]
1) Flyer & Robin b Camorra & El Rebelde Flyer & Robin vs Camorra & El Rebelde, on DailyMotion (posted by thecubsfan)
OK. Flyer and Rebelde repeated the Destroyer spot in the second fall
2) La Comandante, La Seductora, Tiffany b Lluvia, Marcela, Skadi  (posted by thecubsfan)
OK. Long. Rudas took 2/3, Comadante counting the double stomp and putting Marcela in an inverted campana for the win.
3) Dragon Lee, Guerrero Maya Jr., The Panther b Hechicero, Hombre sin Nombre, Sagrado  (posted by thecubsfan)
Great. Tecnicos took 2/3, Dragon Lee finishing off Sagrado with a tree of woe double stomp.
4) Rey Cometa b Niebla Roja [lightning] Rey Cometa vs Niebla Roja in a lightning match, on DailyMotion (posted by thecubsfan)
7″46, middle rope Furia Roja.
5) Ángel de Oro, Stuka Jr., Titán b Bárbaro Cavernario, Felino, Pólvora Angel de Oro, Stuka Jr., Titan vs Barbaro Cavernario, Felino, Polvora, on DailyMotion (posted by thecubsfan)
6) Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas, Rey Bucanero b Atlantis, Máximo, Valiente Atlantis, Maximo, Valiente vs Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas, Rey Bucanero, on DailyMotion (posted by thecubsfan)
OK, but possibly least match of the night. Negro usesda casita and the ropes to beat Maximo. Maximo wants a hair vs hair match. Negro tricked Maximo, kicked Maximo and walked away.

Fourth match was a really fun match worth checking out. Niebla Roja/Rey Cometa went smoother than last time. Main event felt like they were setting up Negro Casas/Maximo while everyone else was on time.

Rebelde and Flyer are going to repeat that spot on every show they work together until they get put in different matches.

El Patron Alberto debuted last night in Ring of Honor. He won his debut match against Christopher Daniels and appears to be programmed against Jay Lethal to feud for the TV title. That match will probably happen on their 03/01 PPV. Alberto was very enthusiastic about his appearance on Twitter afterwards. It doesn’t sound like he was presented as AAA Heavyweight Champion, and it also doesn’t seem like he’s likely to lose before that title match.

Tigre Hispano said he’ll be back in two weeks on Saturday’s Cadena3.

There’s a lot of video from the Salon Citali show on Saturday, though not full results as of yet. Click the little filmstrip icons for +LuchaTV and Black Terry Jr.

(It suddenly occurs to me I could create custom icons for each YouTube channel, if I were more graphically inclined.)

Black Terry Jr.’s flick images for that show are also up.

CMLL (FRI) 01/09/2015 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) El Tapatío & Índigo vs Gitano & Relampago
2) El Divino & Explosivo vs Mr. Trueno & Rey Trueno
3) Sky Kid & Smaker vs El Cuatrero & Sansón
4) Leo, Magnum, Omar Brunetti vs Exterminador, Maléfico, Niebla Roja
5) Blue Panther, Dragón Rojo Jr., Volador Jr. vs Euforia, Satánico, Último Guerrero

With no explanation, Satanico’s back. The programmer is going to owe him a favor to come out of retirement (and team with two of his proteges.) Rayo/Cien seems to have ended without the feud, but a) maybe the theme here is going to be old legends intermixing in with new guys and b) maybe Satanico is going to feud with Panther or Rojo to give this building a program while other people are unavailable.

CMLL (SAT) 01/10/2015 Arena Coliseo
1) Flyer vs El Rebelde
2) Molotov vs Disturbio
3) Esfinge vs Boby Zavala
4) Blue Panther Jr. vs Sangre Azteca
5) Marcela vs Dalys
6) Delta & Guerrero Maya Jr. vs Misterioso Jr. & Sagrado
7) Euforia, Rey Bucanero, Terrible vs Blue Panther, Dragón Rojo Jr., Máximo

No one’s here who’s also on the FantasticaMania shows, so they must be leaving sometime Saturday. Fourth match is a recent lightning match. There’s no ramp for Flyer and Rebelde in Coliseo, don’t think they had those in the 30s.

CMLL (SUN) 01/11/2015 Arena México
1) Angelito & Stukita vs Mercurio & Pequeño Universo 2000
2) Soberano Jr., Star Jr., Starman vs Cholo, Metálico, Ramstein
3) Blue Panther Jr., Dragon Lee, The Panther vs Arkángel de la Muerte, Cancerbero, Raziel
4) Blue Panther, Fuego, Super Porky vs Kráneo, Morphosis, Olímpico
5) Máximo vs Negro Casas
6) La Máscara, Titán, Valiente vs Euforia, Niebla Roja, Shocker

Maximo and Casas can’t get a main event? (Might work out better, since they could easier do a 12 minute match as a semimain.) The guys missing starts to show a bit more here, with that odd fourth match and the interesting third. Second is the first unmasked match for two people, and opener is Angelito’s return from getting CMLL a YouTube strike.

This might be the last week of Sunday Mexico shows – maybe one more? I wonder if Saturday Coliseo season will end when Sunday Coliseo resumes; Saturday Coliseo was promoted as a limited run, but things have changed with that project.
