CMLL (TUE) 08/25/2015 Arena México [CMLL]
1) Apocalipsis & Espanto Jr. b Bengala & Robin
2) Astral, Eléctrico, Shockercito b Demus 3:16, Mercurio, Pierrothito
3) Hombre Bala Jr., Starman, Súper Halcón Jr. DQ Cancerbero, Nitro, Raziel
Hombre Bala was injured in the second fall. Rudo were DQed for excessive violence in the third.
4) Zeuxis b Dark Angel [lightning] Match Relámpago del 25 de Agosto de 2015. Dark Angel Vs Seuxis (posted by VideosOficialesCMLL)
Zeuxis used the ropes to win.
5) Cavernario, Rey Bucanero, Terrible b Ángel de Oro, Fuego, Tritón
6) La Máscara, Máximo, Titán DQ Gran Guerrero, Kamaitachi, Último Guerrero
La Mascara replaced Mistico on Monday. Gran Guerrero fouled Maximo for the DQ.

There’s no lineup listed for next week, which is very strange. Maybe it’s just coming later.

Dark Angel says she has a big announcement today. I hope she’s announcing CMLL will hire non-blind referees.

Texas based luchador Doverman passed away after an extreme style match on June 28. The exact injury isn’t mentioned, and it’s only mentioned he and his unnamed opponent bled a lot. He died at the hospital. He was 43.

AAA has a TV taping on 10/17 (Saturday) in Reynosa with Rey Mysterio Jr. That’s a quick return to Reynosa after taping there in late May. They paired that taping with another in Nuevo Laredo, maybe they’ll do it again. There’s more AAA TV info in the lineups.

Bestia 666 has been telling people Familia de Tijuana is coming back to Arena Mexico as part of the Park/Wagner indy invasion. This is a wait and see news item.

RobViper has a music video 04/10/15 CMLL.

Segunda Caida reviews Trauma II vs Blue Panther.

Articuz vs Pesdailla vs Rocky Lobo vs Lanzeloth has been added 09/17 DTU Arena Aficion show.

ESTO has a history of 82 years of lucha libre piece about a month early.

La Secta says they’ll win in Tehuacan because they’re the most experienced of the three teams in the tag match.


IWRG (SUN) 08/30/2015 Arena Naucalpan
1) Adrenalina & Galaxy vs Alas de Acero & Voltar
2) Aeroman, Dragon Bane, Kanon vs Acero, Hip Hop Man, Ramss El Carnero
3) Leo, Mike, Rafy, Teelo vs El Golpeador, Oficial AK47, Rayan, Spector
4) Hijo del Pantera & Pantera © vs Diablo Jr. I & El Hijo del Diablo [IWRG IC TAG]
Panteras first defense.
5) Negro Navarro, Trauma I, Trauma II vs Barba Roja, Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Pirata Morgan

Dragon Bane & Golpeador are from Arena Aficion; Dragon Bane is very young. No idea why Ramss is. Good to see the Ninja Turtles back here.

CMLL (TUE) 09/01/2015 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Magnum & Metatrón vs Exterminador & Maléfico
2) Esfinge, Pegasso, Starman vsCancerbero, Raziel, Virus
3) Omar Brunetti vs Metálico [lightning]
4) Ángel de Oro, Stuka Jr., Super Porkyvs Rey Bucanero, Rey Escorpión, Terrible
5) Atlantis, Marco Corleone, Valiente vsMr. Niebla, Negro Casas, Shocker

Omar/Metalico continues on. That hair match would make sense on the expected 09/16 holiday show. (What are they going to do with Informa if the Tuesday Arena Mexico show is pushed back a day? These are the important matters.)

AAA (FRI) 09/11/2015 Plaza de Toros, Cancún, Quintana Roo
1) Murder Clown & Psycho Clown vs Hijo del Fantasma & Texano Jr.
2) Faby Apache & Goya Kong vs La Hiedra & Taya
3) Drago, Fénix, La Parka vs Brian Cage, El Mesías, Hijo de Pirata Morgan
4) Angélico, Jack Evans, Rey Mysterio Jr. vs Joe Lider, Myzteziz, Pentagón Jr.

AAA TV (SUN) 09/13/2015 Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya, Puerto Aventuras, Quintana Roo
1) Fénix, Psycho Clown, Rey Mysterio Jr. vs Brian Cage, El Mesías, Myzteziz

AAA announced both these lineups at a press conference promoting the Hard Rock hotel show. Not sure what exactly is going to be on TV; the Hard Rock show usually is, but they’re usually not running a TV taping two days prior. The full Hard Rock card does not appear to be announced but will probably be just about the same talent lineup as the show two days prior.
