CMLL (SAT) 02/28/2015 Arena Coliseo
1) Inquisidor b Leono
2) Hombre Bala Jr. b Espanto Jr.
Hombre Bala Jr. replaced Flyer on Monday
3) Soberano Jr. b Hijo del Signo
4) Marcela b Dalys
5) Okumura b Tritón
6) Bárbaro Cavernario, Felino, Negro Casas b Ángel de Oro, Titán, Valiente
7) Misterioso Jr. & Sagrado b Delta & Guerrero Maya Jr. © [Arena Coliseo TAG]
Comando Caribeno took 2/3, and are the fifth new champions. Delta & Maya fall on their fourth defense.

It’s good to be part of a new trio that CMLL’s high on for no particular reason. Misterioso & Sagrado being champions opens it up for other tecnicos to get title shots – Hombre Bala & Super Halcon are over due to be in competition for something.

LLB (SAT) 02/28/2015 Arena Lopez Mateos [Black Terry Jr. (Flickr), Estrellas del Ring, R de Rudo, Tercera Caida]
1) Bracito de Oro & Bracito De Plata b Mini Multifacetico & Super Pinochito
Mini Multifacetico replaced Mr. Aguilita.
2) Halcón 2000, Kid Jaguar, Shadow b Fantasma De La Opera II, Super Panda, Tyson La Bestia
Super Panda replaced Ojo de Halcon
3) Dinamic Black, Mike Segura, Pantera I b Chucho el Roto, Terry 2000, Yakuza
very good match. Terry 2000 replaced Euro.
4) Ángel o Demonio, León Rojo, Perico b Cerebro Negro, Fantasma de la Ópera, Guerrero del Bronx
Leon Rojo replaced Ovett, Guerrero del Bronx replaced Carta Brava Jr. I
5) Nicho el Millionario DRAW Pagano [death]  (posted by tvluchadelpasado)
ended in a draw, with Nicho being stretchered away. Fantasma de la Opera (as matchmaker?) announced there’d be a rematch. Pagano wants a hair match.
6) LA Park & Shocker b Mr. Águila & Mr. Niebla
As usual with LA Park matches, the referee got into the action. This time, referee Teddy got the pin, lost his shirt, and was wearing body paint. Niebla and Park feuded.

Show is supposed to air on AYM at some point.

Niebla is going to do fine booking wise an opponent and will actually freshen up the Wagner/Park matches. Nicho appeared to suffer a right knee injury off a spot gone wrong. The rematch was surely planned before he got hurt. Hope he’s OK, but that kind of match is not going to leave anyone OK. Nicho is Randy the Ram.

AAA SACCOMATS (SAT) 02/28/2015 Arena Neza [@manrayk]
1) Atomic Boy & Gotita de Plata b El Apache & Hijo de Pirata Morgan
Pirata replaced Fresero Jr.
2) Mary Apache & Mini Abismo Negro b La Hechicera & Octagoncito
La Hechicera replaced Cinthia Moreno
3) Dark Cuervo & Dark Scoria b Ludxor & Venum
4) Blue Demon Jr., El Elegido, La Parka b Hijo del Fantasma, Máscara Año 2000 Jr., Zorro
Just like Naucalpan, Zorro & Elegido were added to the match.
5) El Mesías & El Patrón Alberto b Electroshock & Texano Jr.

Said to be another strong crowd for the last of three straight shows. No AAA news today. No AAA news Monday. Tuesday….

CMLL (SUN) 03/01/2015 Arena México [CMLL]
1) Camorra & Nitro b Magnus & Robin
2) Okumura, Sangre Azteca, Virus b Fuego, Pegasso, Stigma
3) La Máscara, Super Porky, Titán b Bárbaro Cavernario, Negro Casas, Vangellys
Mascara submitted Casas, then asked for a mask vs hair match. Casas declined to respond.
4) Ángel de Oro © b Gran Guerrero [CMLL LH]
Seconds were Fuego and Camorra. Angel de Oro’s second defense
5) La Sombra & Rey Bucanero b Último Guerrero, Atlantis, Niebla Roja, Valiente, Misterioso Jr., Blue Panther, Mr. Águila, Dragón Rojo Jr., Ephesto, Stuka Jr. [#1 Contenders, NWA LH]
Eliminations went Misterioso Jr. (by Dragon Rojo), Stuka (by Ephesto), Dragon Rojo Jr. (by Mr. Aguila), Niebla Roja (by Blue Panther), Ephesto (by Valiente), Mr. Aguila (by La Sombra), Blue Panther (by Ultimo Guerrero), El Valiente (by Rey Bucanero) then Ultimo Guerrero unmasked Atlantis as Atlantis fouled UG, ending the match. Rey Bucanero and La Sombra move on to next week. Bucanero tried to attack Sombra after the match, but Sombra turned the tide with the help of La Mascara & Rush (who weren’t in this match for whatever reason.) Final two survivors face off on 03/08.

It was weird watching this show play out on Twitter and reading how the show ends. It’s a challengers determination match, so it’s clear it’s going to end with two people fighting but unable to get to a decision. That’s always going to be a flat finish, every time they do it. This time, they compounded by having the match end with two other people not even pinning each other, just getting themselves disqualified, so Sombra and Rey Bucanero get a title match by virtue of standing on the apron when everyone else is gone. That’s about as anticlimatic as it gets. It never made much sense to end the show with that match, and not an actual title match, and that arrangement seemed even sillier given that finish. The recap does explain thing a little more, emphasizing La Mascara and Rush showing up (and I guess Vangellys went to grab late dinner?) so maybe it felt like something happened. It still doesn’t make much sense.

Hopefully this feud is only for this title. Ingobernables moving on from Peste Negra to feud with TRT sounds not so fun. They need to feud with tecnicos already, something that seems obvious to everyone but the people who are putting these matches together.

Mr. Jack beat Rey Hechicero to keep the IWL Heavyweight Championship tonight. That’s a real match. I have no idea what happened to Shu el Guerrero – he’s still on Twitter, just not on the Leyendas Inmoratles shows. My thinking is if you can book Hechicero, you make Hechicero champion, but Leyendas Inmortales is not the only group missing on that. Today’s Leyenda Inmoratles show heavily promoted the upcoming Vamper Revolution show at Gimnasio Juan de la Barrera (the one with Fuerza Guerrera vs Negro Casas rematch), so perhaps it’ll air on that TV show.

Noches de Coliseo remains in reruns. Shrug. If you’re recording it, I’d stop recording it until you hear different.

CMLL (FRI) 03/06/2015 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Meteoro vs El Piraña
2) El Alteño & Explosivo vs Relampago & Thunder Boy
3) El Tapatío, Índigo, Javier Cruz Jr. vs El Chakal, Furia Roja, Infierno
4) El Divino, Magnum, Pepe Aguayo vs Demonio Maya, Jocker, Sádico
5) Esfinge, Gallo, Omar Brunetti vs Maléfico, Mr. Trueno, Ráfaga

No CMLL DF wrestlers. All locals. Strange, but probably cheap. Not sure it’s going to work if the same guys main eventing here are working the first couple matches on Tuesdays, but I’m not sure this is about working.

CMLL (SAT) 03/07/2015 Arena Coliseo
1) Magnus vs Inquisidor
2) Último Dragoncito vs Demus 3:16
3) Oro Jr. vs Canelo Casas
4) Star Jr. vs Disturbio
5) Stigma vs Okumura
6) Dragon Lee & Fuego vs Boby Zavala & Luciferno
7) Ángel de Oro, Super Porky, Titán vs Bárbaro Cavernario, Euforia, Terrible

Thinking they’re setting up Titan/Cavernario again as a troll move.

CMLL (SUN) 03/08/2015 Arena México
1) Fantasy & Stukita vs Pequeño Violencia & Pierrothito
Pequeno Violencia’s first match since July (knee injury)
2) Flyer, Oro Jr., Soberano Jr. vs Artillero, Hijo del Signo, Súper Comando
3) Dark Angel, Marcela, Silueta vs Amapola, Dalys, Tiffany
Silueta’s first match here since September.
4) Dragon Lee, Dragón Rojo Jr., Titán vs Hechicero, Pierroth, Virus
5) Ángel de Oro, Mistico, Volador Jr. vs Gran Guerrero, Mephisto, Niebla Roja
6) La Sombra vs Rey Bucanero [NWA LH]
match for vacant title (Diamante Azul on long term hiatus). Sombra currently holds the NWA Middleweight Championship. Bucanero was the previous champion.

Smart money is on Bucanero, given how he was left beat up to end the show, he’s main eventing the next big show and Sombra already has a belt. Bucanero had two title matches in two years when he was last champ and Azul barely defended more often that. This was an important belt at one point, but is currently as useless as it gets. So exciting!

I have no idea what Pierroth is doing in that match and neither does CMLL. I’d be so excited for that match if they swapped him and Super Comando, though Flyer, Oro and Soberano may not be down with that concept.

DTU (SUN) 03/15/2015 Arena Neza
1) El Chato, El Junior, El Nene vs Danny Latino, Kid Lobo, Lokillo
2) Andy Boy, Danger, Guerrero Mixtico vs Artikus, Lanzeloth, Rocky Lobo
3) Septimo Dragon vs Hacker, Chica Ye-Ye, Kalibus, Hormiga, Neza Kid
4) Jimmy, Kevin, Tony vs Arez, Belial, Impulso
5) Cerebro Negro & Dr. Cerebro vs Gemelo Fantastico I & Gemelo Fantastico II and Black Fire & Slayer Pack and Cíclope & Miedo Extremo
6) Drastik Boy © vs Jonathan Gresham [DTU AI]
7) Paranoiko © vs Super Mega [DTU CONSAGRADO]
8) Histeria II & Psicosis II vs Aero Boy & Violento Jack and Crazy Boy & Pesadilla [TLC]

Histeria & Psicosis working a lot of indy promotions probably indicates how well CMLL is paying nowadays.

Gresham is an US indy east coast mat wrestler who’s in the wrong promotion but that’s as good a chance to have a good match as he’s going to have (and it’ll stick out comparted to the rest of the show.)

Tag champs are in the fifth match but I don’t think the tag titles on the line. Poster is smaller than usual.

Nerds vs Indystrongibles should be a lot of fun.
