Tonight’s Arena Mexico main event is Marco Corleone, Maximo, Valiente versus Euforia, Terrible, and Thunder in a main event that could’ve been the main event of any other show in the main event. More interesting stuff is found on the undercard, especially the tercera of Dragon Lee, Pegasso, and Blue Panther Jr. vs Kamataichi, Puma, and Tiger. That continues the Dragon Lee/Kamaitachi feud and picks up the Panthers/Cats issue again. It’s in a spot where it normally doesn’t get on TV, but might since the Dragon Lee/Kamaitachi issue is going somewhere. Sexy Team (Dark Angel, Estrellita and Goya Kong) team up for the first time in 4 months (and only the second time in 10 months), facing Amapola, Dalys and Tiffany. Estrellita hasn’t been in Arena Mexico since Dalys dropped her on her head, perhaps they’ll pick that up today.
CMLL’s show tomorrow (morning, our time) has the one night tag team tournament and the Angel de Oro/Okumura CMLL LH championship match. A title change would be a significant surprise, though it’d also easily explain why Angel de Oro won the title in the first place. Rey Cometa is scheduled to team with Stuka Jr. and is hopeful of doing so; he posted on Facebook that he was getting his knee checked when they returned back to Tokyo and wants to get back in the ring. (He’s also a new dad again, of a boy.)
Syuri, as the CMLL World Women’s Championship, will appear on the 01/19 FantasticaMania show. She’ll appear before the second match to help give flowers to Naito & Taguchi. They’ve had CMLL & REINA women do this on previous year’s shows.
Lucha Underground starts taping Saturday. It’s supposed to be double tapings every day, so they’ll have about a month’s worth of shows by Monday. (I’d love to get results and any other thoughts about the shows.) Some of the wrestlers made it to the Temple yesterday (Fenix?), some appear to be going today. Aerostar mentioned he and Argenis were heading to Los Angeles this morning; I know some people were wondering if Aero was just in for one weekend, but it appears like he’s back for more.
I’d assume those names working on the Friday night Naucalpan show next week (Aerostar, Super Fly, Drago, Pentagon Jr. among them) are probably not part of next weekend’s Lucha Underground shows just due to scheduling. Likewise, since Dark Angel appears to be working tonight in Arena Mexico, she probably didn’t end up signing with Lucha Underground.
El Patron Alberto was named AAA Tecnico of 2014. Alberto was all announced as working the 04/04 ROH show. Alberto was originally signed only thru their March PPV, so this is a sign of a longer deal. Not sure if this is connected to Alberto not working Lucha Underground or just Alberto offering to work in the city he’s living in.
CMLL’s belatedly put up the Super Halcon Jr. vs Raziel lightning match. It’s nothing you need to hurry to watch.
RobViper has a music video of 09/26/14 CMLL.
DoradaFan has a music video of 12/02/14 CMLL.
LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update and Alfredo recapping CMLL Informa. Dragon Lee believes Kamaitachi was sent to attack him by a mystery Japanese opponent. Dragon Lee believes he’s living in an anime, I think, and it would probably be a pretty good anime.

Mini Psycho Clown says he had a great 2014 and hopes to challenge Dinastia for the titles again, or fight the Vipers. He calls Mini Chessman his great friend; he passed away a day before Psycho’s birthday and they had made great plans.
