CMLL (SAT) 08/29/2015 Arena Coliseo [CMLL]
1) Pequeño Nitro b Aéreo
2) Magnus b Akuma
3) Soberano Jr. b Súper Comando
The Panther replaced Soberano Jr.
4) Metálico b Star Jr.
5) Sangre Azteca b Pegasso
6) Hechicero & Luciferno b Blue Panther Jr. & Esfinge
Rudos took 1/3
7) Blue Panther, La Máscara, Titán b Dragón Rojo Jr., Pólvora, Rey Escorpión
Blue Panther replaced Mistico on Monday.

A show.

SANCHEZ (SAT) 08/29/2015 Arena Neza [Estrellas del Ring, KronoSport]
1) Rayo Star & Sky Man b Estrella De Oro & Rey Carnero
2) Motocross, Puma, Taquero Maldito b Bryan El Stripper, Rey Neza, Soldado Del Futuro
3) Maldito Jr., Samot, Vampiro Metálico b Bugambilia, Flyer, La Abeja
4) Hombre Bala Jr. b Punker Bizarro
replaced Nicho vs Pagano.
5) Hijo de LA Park & La Parka Jr. b Nicho el Millionario & Pagano
Nicho & Pagano, scheduled for a match against each other, instead were a team against the Parks. They replaced Sombra & Rush. Sombra said they weren’t paid. These guys were paid by people throwing money in at least.

That’s a weird situation – if this promotion didn’t send CMLL a deposit, you’d think none of the CMLL guys (Flyer, Bala as a fill in) would be working the show. Which kind of suggests they might have been going around CMLL on this one, or something else weird was going on. Anyway, the fans who were wanted to see an extra match and it sounds like they got it.

CMLL (SUN) 08/30/2015 Arena México
1) Leono & Sensei b Camorra & Cholo
2) Amapola, Dalys, La Seductora b La Vaquerita, Lluvia, Skadi
Rudas took 2/3
3) Fuego, The Panther, Tritón DQ Puma, Sangre Azteca, Tiger
Tiger fouled and pulled Triton’s mask for the DQ.
4) Ángel de Oro, Rey Cometa, Titán b Nitro, Olímpico, Ripper
Nitro replaced Morphosis (double booked in Veracruz)
5) Dragon Lee © b Kamaitachi [CMLL SL]
Dragon Lee took 1/3 in another outstanding match. Dragon Lee’s third defense, all against Kamaitachi.
6) La Sombra, Super Porky, Valiente b Mr. Niebla, Shocker, Vangellys
Sombra ‘led’ the tecnicos to a 1/3 fall win.

It’s possible CMLL might run Dragon Lee versus Kamaitachi one more time in Guadalajara or sell it to an indy show, but it’s a little more likely this is the last Lee/Kamaitachi match. It’s got a chance to be feud of the year. The match will air next week on ClaroSports and in about a month on LATV (maybe), and they should give it all the time it needs given the rest of the lineup.

The Mr. Mexico Luchador body building contest was today. AAA wrestlers did fairly well, winning two of the competition groups. I only have scattered results

under 85 (or maybe 80) kg
1st place: Daga
2nd place: Mini Charly Manson
3rd place: Extasis
4th place: Alas de Plata
5th place: La Chiva (!!!!)
6th place: Mini Drago
7th place: Douki

over 85 kg
(no idea who won; there doesn’t seem to be an official results list up anywhere.)
2nd place: Hijo del Fantasma
4th place: Cibernetico
7th place: Copetes Salazar (!!)

1st: Taya Valkyrie
2nd: Sexy Lady
Maybe the two who competed? No one else was shown on stage.

Fantasma made it over to Arena San Juan Pantitlan for the Cara Lucha show, but Daga did not (and the promoters made it clear it was on Daga for not showing.) Full results tomorrow, but they also had the 09/16 lineup – see the lineups.

Halloween says he’s retiring from lucha extreme after the 09/17 DTU show. He’s also saying Familia de Tijuana have talked to CMLL but does not say they’re officially coming.

+LuchaTV posted this week’s Leyendas Inmortales, which has the TV version of the Negro Casas vs Fuerza Guerrera match from March.

Super Libre had lots of interviews, including with Valiente (who is under the belief he’s not on the Anniversary show) and Metalico.

Matt Farmer found a note the NWA sent to the Mexican lucha libre commission about the NWA Light Heavyweight belt being stripped in 1974.


Cara Lucha (WED) 09/16/2015 Arena San Juan Pantitlan, Ciudad Nezahualcóyotl, Estado de México
1) Centvrión & Látigo vs Metaleón & Mr. Leo
2) Fly Star & Toxin Boy vs Flyer & Hombre Bala Jr.
3) Eléctrico & Principe Diamante vs Rayo Star & Sky Man
4) Andy Boy, Danger, Guerrero Mixtico vs Centinela, Epydemius, Ultimo Ninja
5) Boby Zavala & Pólvora vs Aeroboy & Violento Jack
6) Rush vs LA Park vs Pagano

I’m pretty sure I never imagined I’d see the semimain. I only watch indy shows with Polvora on them.

Fourth match is a Monterrey invasion, second and third are CMLL versus indies, and everyone’s going to die in the first match.

CMLL (SAT) 09/05/2015 Arena Coliseo
1) Bengala vs Cholo
2) Robin vs Inquisidor
3) Flyer vs Hijo del Signo
4) Súper Halcón Jr. vs Canelo Casas
5) Hombre Bala Jr. vs Arkángel de la Muerte
6) Fuego & Tritón vs Pierroth & Sagrado
7) Dragon Lee, La Máscara, Volador Jr. vs Dragón Rojo Jr., Hechicero, Pólvora

La Mascara & Volador back together again. This is not a promising lineup.

CMLL (SUN) 09/06/2015 Arena México
1) Fantasy & Último Dragoncito vs Pequeño Nitro & Pequeño Olímpico
2) Magnus, Oro Jr., Soberano Jr. vs Akuma, Artillero, Súper Comando
3) Delta, Esfinge, Tritón vs Disturbio, Pierroth, Sagrado
4) Dragon Lee vs Virus [lightning]
5) Ángel de Oro, Guerrero Maya Jr., Titán vs Euforia, Gran Guerrero, Niebla Roja
6) Marco Corleone, Valiente, Volador Jr. vs Rey Bucanero, Terrible, Vangellys

Dragon Lee thinks he’s safe, thinks he’s finally shook Kamaitachi, and there’s Virus back to make his life tough. I approve. (I have no earthly idea what we do if they do Lee/Virus on 09/20, but they never do a second title match that fast.)

Look at Disturbio! Graduated to the midcard treadmill!
