9:47. Team Sombra took 1/3. After (mostly) playing it straight, La Mascara tripped up his partner for the night Atlantis to set up Sombra’s win. Atlantis and UG wanted rematches, and were attacked by the Ingobernables.
5) Mistico, Valiente, Volador Jr. b Cavernario, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas
10:35. Peste Negra took 1/3, and challenged for the trios titles and will get the match next week. Peste Negra took Mistico and Valiente’s masks.
Show was OK but forgettable. I had no idea what sort of match they were supposed to be making from the semifinal. The undercard was longer than it had been, but the main events are still short and I’m not sure what that’ll mean for next week’s title match.
The Elite lineup has returned to CMLL’s website, with the main event rudo side now being listed as “tres luchadores sorpresas” instead of one surprise and Chessman and Cibernetico. Cibernetico and Chessman’s next scheduled appearance is the main event of Thursday’s AAA Mexican Madness show in Guadalajara, which might be the next clue of what’s going on. As best as I can tell at this moment, Cibernetico’s really leaving AAA. I have no idea about Chessman, except I can’t see one going and the other not. Everything’s subject to change until people show up in the ring.
CMLL’s show today has Stuka, Marco Corlone and Brazo de Plata versus Ephesto, Mephisto and Shocker in a main event. It’s not an appealing card. Semimain is the Boricuas versus Blue Panther, which means one or two falls will end in a surprise rollup. Guadalajara has a Rey Bucanero versus La Mascara championship match, where it doesn’t seem to matter much who wins. Mascara is actually used as a main event guy and Rey Bucanero is not
DTU announced it’s 11/26 show will have a CMLL vs DTU theme. The CMLL side is Blue Panther, Valiente, Stuka Jr., Delta, Titan, Misteiroso Jr., Psicosis/Ripper, and Dragon Rojo Junior. The DTU side is Angel o Demonio, Violento Jack, Aero Boy, Draztick Boy, Jinzo, Pesadilla, Paranoiko, and Septimo Dragon. It’s not clear if this is a cibernetico or a some other series of matches. Most of the CMLL guys don’t seem to fit in the usual DTU style, but it makes sense to have guys who don’t fit if you’re doing promotion versus promotion. (Invasor Ripper being on the CMLL team is still funny.)
New restaurant Luchas & Tacos is sponsoring a one night indie tournament on December 12 in Deportivo SME in Mexico City. Names announced so far are Toxin (Boy) and Latigo. The idea of AAA deciding a new champion in a one night tournament doesn’t appeal to me because there’s never been a good one night tournament in the history of lucha libre (and AAA Aztec Warfare is such a more fun idea), but this indy tournament is starting of well with those names.
A drunk fan came in the ring to fight Parka Negra. That did not go well for the drunk fan. Unclear where security is for the first half minute (and why Hijo del Tirantes is on the outside watching this.) This is pretty old video – you can see Pentagon Jr. in his original look and Octagon on the left side – but it turned up on YouTube yesterday.
RobViper has highlights of 05/26/15 CMLL.
Diario Basta has an interview with Shocker hyping his interview with Guapito.
AAW (Chicago) announced Pentagon Jr. versus Chris Hero for their 11/28 show. Fenix is on the card, his match is yet to be announced.
Furia de Titanes looks back at other AAA wrestlers who’ve gone to Arena Mexico.
Blue Panther Jr. has a clothing line! Blue Panther Jr.’s clothing looks better than his lucha.
Princesa Maya picked up the LLF Extremo championship.
AAA MM (THU) 11/12/2015 Gimnasio Universidad Autonoma de Guadalajara, Guadalajara, Jalisco
1) Faby Apache & Octagoncito vs La Hiedra & Mini Psycho Clown
2) Australian Suicide, Drago, Niño Hamburguesa vs El Apache, Steve Pain, Súper Fly
3) Monsther Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown vs Averno, Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Máscara Año 2000 Jr.
4) Electroshock & La Parka vs Chessman & Cibernético
Besides the obvious interest with Chessman & Cibernetico, the semimain includes Mascara 2000 Jr. on an AAA for the first show in a while. I wonder if other rarely seen names will pop up with AAA being stretched between the Que Viva el Rey, TV tapings and Lucha Underground shows even beyond the deperatures – La Chiva should maybe check his voice mail messages!
CMLL (MON) 11/16/2015 Arena Puebla
1) Meyer & Paris vs Artillero & Súper Comando
2) Black Tiger, Millenium, Oro Jr. vs Policeman, Rey Apocalipsis, Toro Bill Jr.

6) Mistico, Valiente, Volador Jr. © vs Cavernario, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas [CMLL TRIOS]
Main event should be good. Not idea where they’re going with the semimain. Tercera feels like it’s the the same match. Bataillon is back in the segunda.
