Rush defeats Caristico, Thunder forgot his pants?, new DTU champ

Rush & Caristico

CMLL (FRI) 01/15/2016 Arena México [MeditoTiempo, thecubsfan]
1) Mercurio & Pierrothito b Shockercito & Stukita
16:30. Rudos took 2/3
2) Estrellita, Marcela, Silueta b Dalys, Reyna Isis, Zeuxis
14:17. Tecnicas took 1/3.
3) Rey Bucanero, Terrible, Vangellys b Ángel de Oro, Blue Panther, Rey Cometa
14:41. Rudos took 1/3.
4) Felino, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas b La Máscara, Super Parka, Valiente
9:34. La Mascara had issues with his partners, as usual. Peste Negra took 1/3, including Casas pinning Parka cleanly in the third.
5) Dragón Rojo Jr., Pólvora, Thunder b Euforia, Gran Guerrero, Niebla Roja
7:01 Straight falls, with Thunder pulling off Euforia’s mask and beating him in the third. Euforia again challenged Thunder to a singles match. Thunder’s microphone was cut off when he swore as part of his response.
6) Rush b Carístico
13:18. Rush took 1/3. Finish saw Tirantes get knocked down, then distracted by the arriving La Mascara. Caristico attempted La Mistica, the move fell apart, but Caristico quickly put on a fujiwara armbar and Rush taped put. Rush escaped, then dropped Carsitico with the Rush Driver for the win. Rush put his feet on the ropes for leverage during the pin, though it didn’t seem necessary. Caristico won no falls in this match, only taking the second via the DQ. Rush belittled Caristico and the fans after his win. Caristico said Rush was beatable, then was beat up and stripped of his mask by Rush & La Mascara

Main event was really good, screwed up Mistica aside. Undercard was better than expected. Thunder was awful and wrestling in jeans was very odd

Rush & Caristico rematch tonight in Arena Lopez Mateos in a tag match: Caristico & Sharlie Manson vs Fuerza Guerrero & Rush.

ILLM’s show at Salon Citalli tomorrow has Arez vs Sharlie Rockstar vs Fly Warrior as the main event. Arez told Furia de Titanes that Sharlie inspired him to be a luchador, but now it’s ARez and the rest of the Indystrongibles inspiring people. Lady Maravilla also talks up her tag match – teaming with Ancla versus Zanelly & Moria, with the interview noting it’s sort of a AAA vs CMLL match. Maravilla is sometimes on AAA shows, and Zanelly is the mystery woman from the CMLL bodybuilding contest who’s only wrestled once or twice since.

La Liga de Justica also has their first Coliseo Coacalco show on Sunday, with Herodes Jr. versus Misterioso Jr. in a chain match as the main event. They’ve announced a show for next Sunday back in Puebla with Herodes Jr. & Hijo del Herodes (?) versus Emperador Azteca (IWRG) & Stigma vs Rey Apocalipsis & Toro Bill Jr.

The Rotation won the DTU Alto Impacto championship in German’s WXW today, in a tag match against former champion Kim Ray.

AAA’s TV episode for this week is already on YouTube. This week’s matches are

  • Dinastía & Venum vs Mini Abismo Negro & Mini Psycho Clown
  • Angélico, Australian Suicide, Jack Evans vs Daga, Joe Lider, Pentagón Jr.
  • Dark Cuervo, Dark Scoria, Zorro vs La Parka, Monsther Clown, Murder Clown

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.

CMLL on 2016-01-15 

Recapped: 01/15/2016

What happened: Rush defeated Caristico, with a little bit of cheating, in the first ever singles match. Even after the loss, Caristico said he could beat Rush. Rush & La Mascara beat up and unmasked Caristico to end the show.

Thunder defeated Euforia, with a little bit of cheating. Euforia challenged Thunder to a rematch. Thunder’s mic was cut (due to his swearing) before he could respond. Thunder was wearing street clothes for some reason.

What was good: The main event turned out to be a lot of fun. The undercard was better than expected.

Where can I watch it: It’ll be up on my channel in a few days. The top matches will air on TV on 02/03. Read More
