A team of guys going to Japan beat by a team of guy who aren’t going to Japan is always funny.

CMLL Elite (SUN) 01/10/2016 Arena México [CMLL, MT, Publimetrro]
1) Lluvia & Silueta b La Seductora & Tiffany
2) Fuego & Pegasso b Eterno & Fresero Jr.
3) Guerrero Maya Jr. & Rey Cometa DQ Argos & Karonte Jr.
Straight falls, the second when Argos is DQed for unmasking Maya (though Maya fouled ARgos prior.)
4) Blue Panther & Valiente b Bestia 666 & Damián 666
Tecnicos took 1/3. Valiente replaced La Mascara. Halloween tried to help his friends wins and told media he would like an extreme match in Arena Mexico as part of his current retirement tour.
5) Felino, Puma, Tiger b Ángel de Oro, Golden Magic, Super Crazy
Cats took 1/3. Felino and Super Crazy made hair match challenges agian.
6) Canek, Carístico, Octagón b Cibernético, Fuerza Guerrera, Volador Jr.
Tecnicos took 1/3. Canek’s first match here in about a decade, getting the win. Fuerza and Octagon feuded, with Fuerza unmasking Octagon for the first fall DQ.

Attendance seemed only a bit more than usual; nothing the likes of when Rayo had his match a few weeks ago. Maybe they should’ve run the Canek return during the holidays. Maybe they just wanted it to feel like past memories for Canek, main eventing a show in a large depressingly empty building. Edit: the people who were there did greet Canek loudly.

Apuesta challenges on these show are just white noise at this point.

Virus says he’s happy but nervous to face Lyger.

Nothing really of note on Saturday’s Neza show, but they seemed to draw a good crowd.
