Fuerza pulled Rayman’s mask and cradled him for the win. Challenges followed.

Mascara snuck in a foul on Rayo.

The missing results from the Leyendas show a week ago. They seemed to draw OK. Rayman/Fuerza would probably be a good match, if it happened.

The Crash (FRI) 10/02/2015 Auditorio de Tijuana, Tijuana, Baja California [Estrellas del Ring, San Diego Red, The Gladiatores]
1) Star Dragón © b Mirage [The Crash Junior]
Star Dragon retained.
2) Star Boy, Tony Casanova, Zarco b Ángel Metálico, Dinamic Black, Súper Nova
Casanova got in a foul on Nova
3) Fenix (AAA) b Angélico, Seiya Sanada, Matt Cross [Trofeo X Gym]
Fenix beat Angelico to win. Best match of the night.
4) Pimpinela Escarlata, Psycho Clown, Rubi Raze DQ Cibernético, Mamba, Taya
Rubi Raze debuted as the mystery woman. Mr. Maldito attacked Pyscho CLown to keep their feud going.
5) Bestia 666 b Pentagón Jr. © [The Crash CRUISER]
extreme match, with Bestia keeping the title.
6) El Patrón Alberto, Rey Horuz, Rey Mysterio Jr. b Daga, Extreme Tiger, Hijo del Fantasma
Tiger replaced Brian Cage. Rudos didn’t get along with him. Alberto submitted Tiger. Rudos (La Sociedad, Konnan) attacked Tiger after, with the tecnicos making the save to end the show.

People in the building believed it to be a sell out. They’ve done enough angles with Mr. Maldito & Psycho Clown that I actually believe they’re going to do that mask match (because it’d also be a pretty good payoff for Maldito.) I’m posting this late enough so I don’t have to wonder if Rubi Raze is the mystery luchadora on Heroes Inmortales. (She was not.) Highlights have escaped from this show and are said to look good. The Gladiatores has interviews from Mr. Maldito and Bestia 666.

CARA Lucha (SAT) 10/03/2015 Arena San Juan Pantitlan, Ciudad Nezahualcóyotl, Estado de México [Black Terry Jr. (Flickr), Estrellas del Ring, Kronosport, The Gladiatores]
1) Estrella De Oro & Reyco b Maligno Negro & Rey Carnero
2) Centvrión, Fly Warrior, Látigo b Magnífico I, Magnífico II, Metaleón
Metaleon replaced Mr. Leo (injury.) Good match, win for the debut Mala Hierba.
3) Wasson b Jocker (Guadalajara)
Jocker wants a rematch in Guadalajara.
4) Flyer, Hombre Bala Jr., Oro Jr. DQ Andy Boy, Danger, Guerrero Mixtico
Danger unmasked Fly for the DQ. Oro Jr. was the mystery luchador on the CMLL side.
5) Dave The Clown b Espanto Jr. and Guerrero Mixtico
Violento Jack missed the match due to injury and Stuka Jr. was just missing. Dave was the only originally scheduled wrestler to appear and won.
6) La Sombra & Trauma I b Rush & Trauma II [Relevos Increíbles]
Match ended when Sombra offered to lay down for Rush, but Rush insisted on taking the pin instead. Crowd was not amused.

The second match sounds like the best match on the show, which would be two in a row for Mala Hiebra. Rush & Sombra seem to be on team “Relevos Increibles are dumb”, which is good for me but possibly not for the people who wanted to see that main event.

CMLL (SAT) 10/03/2015 Arena Coliseo [CMLL]
1) Sensei b Inquisidor
2) Eléctrico b Pequeño Olímpico
3) Tiffany b Lluvia
4) Sangre Azteca b Starman
5) Blue Panther Jr. DQ Virus
Virus pulled the mask for the DQ.
6) Rey Bucanero & Vangellys b Titán & Tritón
rudos took 2/3
7) Dragón Rojo Jr., Pólvora, Rey Escorpión b Atlantis, La Máscara, Valiente
Rey Escorpion pulled Atlantis mask and rolled him up for the win.

A usual Saturday show. The recap praises Titan & Triton despite their loss.

CMLL (SUN) 10/04/2015 Arena México [CMLL]
1) Apocalipsis & Cholo b Bengala & Leono
2) Demus 3:16, Mercurio, Pequeño Nitro b Astral, Stukita, Último Dragoncito
Demus beat champion Astral
3) Blue Panther Jr., Rey Cometa, The Panther b Puma, Tiger, Virus
Cometa beat Puma
4) Ángel de Oro b Hechicero [lightning]
Mecedora beat Hechicero on 9:30
5) Stuka Jr., Super Porky, Titán b Boby Zavala, Felino, Niebla Roja
6) Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas, Terrible b Marco Corleone, Máximo, Valiente
Terrible beat Maximo, which CMLL indicated could be part of a title challenge.

There’s a big show at the end of the month and Terrible challenging for the title makes as much sense as anyone. Still, it’s longer away than they usually spend building up title programs.

Niebla Roja says he’s going to spend the next two months in the US. He’s turned up working small shows in Arizona and Texas before and presumably will be doing more of those.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update

CMLL has a report on the lucha libre panel discussion from Wednesday, which included Guerrero Maya and Hechicero.

Lucha Libre in Japan

on the 10/04 Dragon Gate show, Flamita join the Dia Hearts faction, and he and Dragon Kid now will challenge for the Open the Twin Gate championship on 10/17. I think this nudges the “which promotion will Flamita be part of in 2016” slightly more towards the Dragon Gate side, though we’ll probably know a lot more in two weeks.

Star Fire, back in Mexico, says she hopes to get rematch for the NEO High Speed championship next year (so I guess she’s going back!)

AAA Heroes Inmortales: 2015-10-04 

Recapped: 10/04/2015

What happened: A show long storyline had Myzteziz annoy La Sociedad enough that they ended up laying him out with a guitar by the end of the show. He wanted to be on his own and appears to be – Alberto & Rey made no attempt to save him.

Alberto retained the heavyweight title over Johnny Mundo when Mundo was spotted using that same guitar by Hijo del Tirantes. Mundo had slapped Tirantes moments earlier, and Tirantes played it fair after that as he usually does, disqualifying Mundo. The rudos beat up Mundo and second Psycho Clown, Rey made the save, Myzteziz attacked him, La Sociedad attacked Myzteziz and eventually Alberto and Rey ran everyone out. Alberto thanked his hometown fans after the match.


Pentagon Jr. & Joe Lider’s ten month zero defense tag team title reign came to an end earlier in the night. Angelico & Jack Evans won the championships for the second time when Jack pinned Steve Pain (the only rudo not wearing Perros del Mal gear.) Pentagon Jr. might have won the match and kept the title earlier except for Myzteziz running into break up a pin. Myzteziz seemed to attack all three teams and there was no rhyme or reason to his attack.

Myzteziz also did not get along with Hijo del Fantasma and Texano Jr. in their trios match against Rey Mysterio Jr., Psycho Clown and the debuting Garza Jr. (Hijo del Ninja doing Hector Garza spots.) The rudos kept it together enough to get the win – Myzteziz beating Garza – but it apparently was a fakeout to set up the attack later.

a bit familiar

One Perros del Mal member did win on the night: Taya kept the Reina de Reinas championship by making her first defense. She pinned the debuting Lady Maravilla with her northern lights suplex/double stomp combination. Lady Shani was the other surprise wrestler in a surprisingly strong match.

Not all the debuting luchadors lost. Taurus, a new Minotaur-iish creature, shockingly won this year’s Copa Pena. He threw out half the field, eliminating La Parka last to win. Not much is known about Taurus but he appears to be – like Garza Jr., Shani and Maravilla – a Mexican luchador give a new/bigger role rather than any of the rumors foreigners or outside big names.


What was good? Most of the show. The three way tag was the best match on the show, with the women’s match also being a standout. Most everything was good, though the main event had the combination of the usual AAA main event tropes and a clear desire not to beat either man. The LU Alberto/Mundo matches were better than this one, but you got the impression this wasn’t the last one in AAA.

There were no real problems with the iPPV once you got it running. (I think it went out for 2 seconds for me, it was fine when I refreshed.) Getting it running was the tough part. An issue with Paypal slowly processing payments was preventing people from being authorized to watch the show. Some people had to wait for a half hour before they were able to get in, some people never seemed to be able to get in.

Where can I watch it? If you can get them to take your money, the VOD is already up on The show should start to air on AAA’s TV show starting on 10/17 (one week later than expected, as Monterrey was cut into two shows.)

double pin!
