CMLL Puebla: 2015-09-28 

Asturiano on fire

Recapped: 09/28/2015

What happened? Mephisto fouled Volador after a short main event. Challenges indicated a rematch next week. Molotov debuted on the rudo side and continues to feud with Lestat. Kamaitachi argued with Barbaro for about three seconds after their loss, thrilling those of us who are convinced Kama is losing his hair before going back and willing to overread into any hint of a new feud.

What was good? Opener was strong and parts of the tercera were very good. The big matches had a very rushed/mailed in feeling.

Where can I watch this? It’s up on CMLL’s YouTube channel already.

Mascara versus Hijo de Dos, many mask challenges, Puebla, next weekend lineups

IWRG (SUN) 09/27/2015 Arena Naucalpan [+LuchaTV, The Gladiatores]
1) Alas de Acero & Omega b Adrenalina & Vardeus
2) Freyser & Kanon b Picudo Jr. & Ram El Carnero
3) Leo, Mike, Rafy b Apolo Estrada Jr., Hip Hop Man, Imposible
Apolo Estrada Jr. replaced Super Jack. Leo & Imposible feuded and talked mask match.
4) Canis Lupus, El Golpeador, Negro Navarro DQ Black Terry, Golden Magic, Relámpago
Golden Magic pulled Canis’ mask for the DQ. Mask match challenges followed.
5) Máscara Año 2000 Jr., Trauma I, Trauma II b Danny Casas, Hijo De Dos Caras, Veneno
Mascara Jr. snuck on a foul on Hijo de Dos, then demanded his (heavyweight) title back.

This is the unmasked Junior Dinamita who’s most often seen in AAA. He was champion in 2010 for two months with no defenses, and that might be one of the better IWRG Heavyweight title reigns. I can only assume he was in Naucalpan to track down his mysterious admirers (and so, is unaware X-Fly’s due the next title shot.) Sure a lot mask match challenges a month out from IWRG’s annual all masks cage match.

Today’s Puebla show, back on the YouTube stream, has Marco, Valiente and Volador versus Hijos del Infierno. They seem to be setting up Mephisto versus Volador here in the next couple weeks. There’s some chance for good matches on the show: Blue Panther, Dragon Lee, Maximo versus Cavernario, Kamaitachi, and Negro Casas has a good chance. The Panthrr kids team with Stigma against the Cats and Sangre Azteca.

The news on the undercard is Molotov’s debut on the rudo side. He’s been around since 2004 and been a tecnico his whole career, but surprisingly had problems with Lestat which caused him to turn rudo. (At least in Puebla; he was still tecnico in his other match this week.) The CMLL review credits Metalico for encouraging Molotov to turn, with Metalico pointing out how much better things have been for him since he turned rudo. (It’s more the mask loss.) The follow up is Molotov is a rudo but Metalico isn’t even around this week. Lestat will be there, so there probably will be more with him and Molotov.

Who’s saying lucha libre is bad now? If you guessed Hijo del Santo, give yourself a pat on the back. There was a press conference this weekend for next Monday’s Todo x el Todo show. He says TV hurt lucha libre, which means he hasn’t gotten a TV deal for TxT this time around. Interesting, while ripping AAA as usual, Santo noted he preferred CMLL’s style. Santo saying anything nice about any one is newsworthy. The photo accompanying the article shows Magnficio II in his Magnifico II mask, which makes one wonder why he’s getting a new name. As by rule, Bobby Lee Jr. challenged Hijo del Santo to a mask match.

CMLL (SAT) 10/03/2015 Arena Coliseo
1) Sensei vs Inquisidor
2) Eléctrico vs Pequeño Olímpico
3) Lluvia vs Tiffany
4) Starman vs Sangre Azteca
5) Blue Panther Jr. vs Virus
6) Titán & Tritón vs Rey Bucanero & Vangellys
7) Atlantis, La Máscara, Valiente vs Dragón Rojo Jr., Pólvora, Rey Escorpión

Titan & Triton teaming up is almost always exciting. Except maybe those opponents. Vangellys may be hurt so it may change. I can not imagine with a long one fall Lluvia/Tiffany match must be like. I can imagine what it’ll be like for Virus & Blue Panther Jr. and it doesn’t go well for Panther Jr.

CMLL (SUN) 10/04/2015 Arena México
1) Bengala & Leono vs Apocalipsis & Cholo
2) Astral, Stukita, Último Dragoncito vs Demus 3:16, Mercurio, Pequeño Nitro
3) Blue Panther Jr., Rey Cometa, The Panther vs Puma, Tiger, Virus
4) Ángel de Oro vs Hechicero [lightning]
5) Stuka Jr., Super Porky, Titán vs Boby Zavala, Felino, Niebla Roja
6) Marco Corleone, Máximo, Valiente vs Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas, Terrible

They’re stretching out Niebla/Marco for some reason. It probably has to end next week so they can start to move aside for whatever they’re doing for 11/01 instead. Tercera looks fun. So the lightning match.

CMLL (SUN) 10/04/2015 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Máscara De Oro vs Black Sugar
2) Ángel Aéreo, Linterna, Rey Halcón vs Mercenario, Mr. Apolo, Mr. Brisa
3) El Alteño, Explosivo, Reycko vs Demonio Rojo, Gitano, Gran Kenut
4) La Pantera vs Chik Tormenta
5) El Divino, Frezzer, Metatrón vs El Chakal, El Yaqui, Thunder Boy
6) León Blanco, Nautilius, Omar Brunetti vs Mr. Trueno, Ráfaga, Rey Trueno

Back to normal? I think they’re doing a lot of women’s singles matches because getting enough women for a tag match has been an issue.
