6) El Dandy & Negro Casas DQ Mr. Niebla & Satánico
No Fuerza, so Niebla teamed with Satanico instead. Satanico angrily fouled Dandy for the DQ.
Metalik (Mascara Dorada’s brother who never made it out of the openers) had to be a situation where the first person who could make it to the building got the match.

Rey Bucanero retained the NWA Light Heavyweight Championship last night in Guadalajara.
Sombra is now off Monday’s Arena Puebla show. La Mascara takes his place. Sombra’s currently not listed on any card beyond Sunday in Monterrey.
AAA is still sending out interviews talking about Johnny Mundo versus Rey Misterio, which I guess means something along those lines is still happening at Guerra de Titanes.
Wrong Reel has a very positive review of the Lucha Mexico documentary, which premiers at a film festival in NYC on Friday.
There’s a short documentary on el Gallo on YouTube from this past May. I can’t recall if I linked to this before, but you can’t have enough documentaries about luchador roosters.

Elite Lucha Libre (SUN) 11/15/2015 Arena México
1) Fantasy & Stukita vs Pequeño Nitro & Pequeño Olímpico
2) Emperador Azteca, Magnus, Metaleón vs Cancerbero, Heddi Karaoui, Raziel
Magnus and Heddi Karaoui added on Tuesday, match moved up a spot.
2) Silueta & Syuri © vs Dalys & Zeuxis [REINA TAG]
first defense. Match moved down a spot on Tuesday.
4) Ángel de Oro, Argos, Golden Magic vs Pegasso, Rey Cometa, Titán
Argos and Titan were added to this match on Tuesday. This would be Argos’ return to Arena Mexico.
5) Máximo Sexy & Volador Jr. vs Damián 666 & Halloween
Damian and Halloween replaced Bestia 666 & Mr. Aguila, and Volador swapped spots with Valiente.
6) Carístico, Negro Casas, Valiente vs ?, Ephesto, Mephisto
match was originally, but briefly, listed with Chessman, Cibernetico and a mystery luchador on the rudo side. The card was later reposted with three mystery rudo luchadors, then a poster came out with Mephisto, Ephesto and a mystery person and Volador being replaced by Valiente.
Take 3! That’s a lot of explaining text for a card still five days away, and people being added last right. I didn’t pick up on the Familia de Tijuana change last night.
The implication is Averno will be the mystery guy in the main event. The last impression I had was Cibernetico was still going to Elite, but maybe they don’t want to talk about it. Doesn’t look like Chessman is going to be there, but I expect everything and anything right now.
Argos confirmed he was really booked on this card on Twitter. He’d been RT-ing comments complaining about how he wasn’t getting matches in AAA on Monday. That part is hard to argue; the most recent match we know of for him is nearly a month. The story had been everything was worked out between AAA & Argos & Argenis after Myzteziz left (and after they maybe quit for a couple days), but it’s understandable Argos still might want to leave if AAA’s not giving him any work. Between the weekly Guadalajara shows, the TV tapings and the Que Viva el Rey shows with missing people, it seems like AAA could’ve found a match here or there for Argos if they really wanted him. AAA didn’t really seem like they wanted to use Argos before so maybe nothing’s really changed.
IWRG (SUN) 11/15/2015 Arena Naucalpan
1) Aramis & Dragón Bane vs Atomic Star & Matrix Jr.
2) Centvrión, Hijo del Alebrije, Látigo vs Hip Hop Man, Kanon, Ram El Carnero
3) Leo, Mike, Rafy, Teelo vs Diablo Jr. I, Golpeador, Imposible, Violencia Jr.
4) Mega, Pantera I, Super Mega vs Canis Lupus, Eterno, Spector
5) Danny Casas, Pantera, Súper Nova vs Heddi Karaoui, Máscara Año 2000 Jr., X-Fly
This is Pantera (II)’s 30th Anniversary show. I hope he makes it. Kind of surprising Pantera I is there. X-Fly back to get his title shot, I assume.
Second match is 2/3rds of the way from a Mala Hiebra invasion.
CMLL (TUE) 11/17/2015 Arena México
1) Acero & Angelito vs Pequeño Nitro & Pequeño Olímpico
2) Magnus, Robin, Soberano Jr. vs Canelo Casas, Metálico, Nitro
3) Estrellita, La Vaquerita, Skadi vs Reyna Isis, Tiffany, Zeuxis
4) Delta vs Sagrado [lightning]
5) Super Porky, Titán, Tritón vs Ephesto, Luciferno, Mephisto
6) Dragon Lee, Mistico, Valiente vs Gran Guerrero, Último Guerrero, Vangellys
Main event looks interesting. Titan & Triton team up, though not with an ideal partner. Women’s match is what happens when there’s two women’s matches on the same day.
