first defense. Trauma II helped his brother win.
I’m really not 100% sure which Rockers those are until it airs. And even then, I dunno.
Today’s Arena Puebla has one really notable match, Rush versus Ultimo Guerrero. This originally seemed to be Rey Escorpion versus Ultimo Guerrero, but they changed the direction after Escorpion and CMLL parted ways. It’s about the most similar match they could have to that: both Rush & Escorpion usually pummel UG, to great results. They recently had this match in Elite, and UG has won 4 of the last 5 matches (Rush only winning by DQ.) Ultimo Guerrero’s recent series with Volador suggests this won’t have a clean finish either, but it should be entertaining up to that point.
The rest of the show is the usual mix of trios matches. Super Crazy returns from Japan to continue his feud with Rey Bucanero, with Terrible, Vangellys, Ephesto and Mephisto rounding out the team. Johnny Idol, Titan, and Valiente take on Gran Guerrero, Niebla Roja and Sam Adonis. Fuego, Guerrero Maya Jr., Stigma face Bobby Z, Okumura and Skandalo, which should include the eternal Skandalo/Stigma feud. The Batillon del Muerte team with Espanto Jr. against Soberano Jr., Flyer, and Black Tiger. The opener has Meyer & Zaeta Roja against Malayo & Policeman.
CultIcon also has a preview of the show. It airs on CMLL.com & YouTube at 9pm. I’m not sure if I’ll be watching it live.
PJ Black has two broken ankles after a base jumping accident. That sucks. He seems to be in good spirits. It’s a bad injury for anyone, and doubly so for a mobile wrestler like Black. He’s not going to be wrestling any time soon. No one’s quite sure when the Season 4 taping will be, but the most recent guess is January, and it’d be hard if not impossible for him to make it back in the ring by that time.
The Rayo de Jalisco anniversary show, which took place Sunday (he won!), will air locally on Megacanal on 10/08.
CMLL (SAT) 10/08/2016 Arena Coliseo
1) Flyer & Templario vs Rocky Casas & Yago
2) Estrellita, Princesa Sugehit, Skadi vs Dalys, La Seductora, Metálica

4) Mr. Niebla, Olímpico, Rey Bucanero vs Guerrero Maya Jr., Rey Cometa, Stuka Jr.
5) Atlantis, Máximo Sexy, Mistico vs Ephesto, Luciferno, Shocker
The Maximo/Niebla feud seems dropped – they’re on the show, but in different matches. More notable is the opener, where Templario, Rocky Casas and Yago all resurface for the first time in months. (Metalica also makes a second appearance in the women’s match.) That really seems like how the openers should be more used, instead of a million Camorra matches.
