Generally good show with a lot of matches building to to the future. Fourth match was the best match.
CMLL’s Saturday Coliseo show has La Mascara, Mr. Niebla, Niebla Roja vs Atlantis, Stuka Jr., Volador Jr. as a main event.
Caralucha is back tonight with a Flamita vs Jack Evans vs Cavernario main event. Semimain is Ultimo Guerrero & Templario versus Fly Warrior & Hechicero.
Kamikaze del Ring are also running in Arena Azteca Budokan, with a Magia Blanca vs Flyer vs Centvrion vs Mr. Leo match where the winner gets a title match with Bandido tonight.
Elite says they pulled Black Tauro, Bandido, Golden Magic, Hijo de Dr. Wagner Jr. off a show in Zacatecas today due to issues with promoters. That usually means Elite didn’t get a payment from the promoter, but it’s just surprising Elite is getting a cut when they’re not running the show. It’s also possible those guys were simply moved to the show Rey Escorpion is promoting in Sonora tonight.
AAA’s TV today has
- Pimpinela Escarlata vs Mamba [bull terrier]
- Daga, Joe Lider, Pentagón Jr. vs Dave The Clown, Monsther Clown, Murder Clown
- Pagano vs Dr. Wagner Jr., Psycho Clown
Ivelisse, Taya, Brian Cage and Jeff Cobb action figures are coming, which suggests that people who came to LU under a character they already owned kept the rights for these sorts of things.
Angelico says he was working on AAA calendar, which might be the mystery photo shoots AAA has been doing.
Barbaro Cavernario and Stuka have new shirts for FantasticaMania.
The latest Fuego en el Ring podcast is up.
CultIcon writes about the AAA video game.
CMLL (FRI) 12/09/2016 Arena México
1) Oro Jr. & Stigma vs Sangre Azteca & Skándalo
2) Fuego, Pegasso, Soberano Jr. vs Okumura, Puma, Tiger
3) Estrellita, Princesa Sugehit, Zeuxis vs Dalys, La Vaquerita, Marcela [Relevos Increíbles]
4) Valiente vs La Máscara [lightning]
5) Marco Corleone, Máximo Sexy, Volador Jr. vs Máscara Año 2000, Shocker, Terrible
6) Carístico, Dragón Lee, Mistico vs Mephisto, Negro Casas, Último Guerrero
Dragon Lee, who took the pinfall last night on ROH PPV (and figures to do the same tomorrow) is back for an all-star trio to continue the march to Ultimo Guerrero/Caristico. Dinastia & Cuatrero will get over this week by watching Shocker & Terrible wrestle, I guess.
I’m going to keep expecting Valiente to lose every match for about six months, just to because it would make CMLL look silly. He might not! The sides on the tercera suggest they’re heading to a relevos suicidas down the road.
