01/25 Lucha Underground results (airing 03/18 & 03/25)

This taping includes shows which will air on March 18th and March 25th. The “matches only” listing is still being updated but they’re far enough in the future that it’s hard not to figure out results based on the matches they’re doing. Reader beware. These are the 19th and 20th episodes and the most recent one to air was the 11th.

The Lucha Underground championship was defended on this show – and surprisingly, so was the AAA Mega Championship. You may come across spoilers if you’re looking around on Wikipedia.

5) Chicano & Danny Casas b Canis Lupus & Eterno © [IWRG IC TAG]
Challengers Chicano & Danny Casas took falls 2/3 to take the titles. Lupis & Eterno fall in first defense. Third fall saw Eterno beat Danny, Chicano beat Canis, and Chicano surprise Eterno with a casita to win. Eterno & Lupus demanded a hair match with the new champions, then both teams fought until the locker room cleared out to separate them.

Main event feud seems very violent. Unclear if they’re running Wednesday this week or not (guessing not.)

Black Terry Jr. has photos of yesterday’s DTU show, and highlights of the Flamita vs Drastick Boy vs Lanzeloth match.

Today’s CMLL show in Puebla is an oddly busy show, with three matches which would’ve been easy main events on any number of dead DF shows in the last month. The actual main event is La Sombra & La Mascara taking on Ultimo Guerrero & Gran Guerrero, there’s a special Shocker vs Maximo singles match, and Demus challenging Astral for the minis title is way down in the segunda. I’d expect Astral to retain but it’s good to see Astral’s mini title reign being active after Pequeno Olimpico’s was not.

Pesadilla explains wrestling with his mask off in NOAH – the rudos had been taking off his mask during his matches and he knew it wouldn’t be a DQ in a TLC match, so he just put face paint to surprise them and keep going. He doesn’t plan on wrestling unmasked in Mexico.

Segunda Caida starts with Mocho Cota on the 80s DVDs set with a match from 1983. Everyone is good on that set, even I can never find time to finish it.
