Second defense. Terry asked for a shot at the trios titles held by the Navarros. The Traumas pointed out Terry doesn’t have a third man but he can get a shot if he can find someone to team with them.

It’s a regular show tonight in Puebla, with nothing following up from last week and some matches that might be good but nothing a sure bet. Caristico, Volador and Atlantis team up in the main event with Mascara, Negro Casas and Ultimo Guerrero. Titan, Johnny Idol and Angel de Oro face the Peste Negra trio of Felino, Mr. Niebla and Cavernario. The Cancerberos are actually in a trios match together for the first time this year (first time since August, really.) Esfinge, Fuego and Soberano are their opponents. Sugehit & Zeuxis are on the opposite sides of a women’s trios, which is bound to keep happening since there’s only about twelve luchadoras. Jarochita, Sanely, Amapola and Tiffany are scheduled to fill out the match. The only locals match tonight is the opener, with Lestat, Paris and Zaeta Roja against el Malayo, Guerrero Espacial and Sombra Diabolica.

I went to AAW’s show in LaSalle this Saturday to see Daga’s debut for the promotion. I figured, if you write on the internet a lot of times that people should book a dude, you probably should pay money to see the dude wrestle when someone finally does book him. (My photos turned up here.) Daga did well – it was helped by Elgin giving him much more than I would’ve expected, and there were about two things that didn’t go quite right, but it was an one of those matches that just keep going and keep getting bigger. Daga won over a crowd that was there didn’t really know him and knew Elgin, splitting the crowd by the end. Even the Hispanic families that I usually see when Pentagon & Fenix are around weren’t as much around this one; Daga went in front of an unfamiliar fanbase and got them asking him to come back. He’ll be back. That match and the main event, a time limit draw with Fenix/AR Fox and OI4k ts are worth checking out the show alone, plus there was some good stuff in the undercard.

CultIcon previews this show. It will air at 9pm on CMLL’s YouTube channel.

Black Terry Jr. also has photos of Sunday’s ChilangaMask Anniversary show.

Roberto Figueroa talks about his Llaves y Candados promotion, makes the claim that wrestling in Arena Coliseo Monterrey would be dead if not for those celebrity matches re-energizing shows.

Friends are looking for information on Ciclon Ramirez Jr., who hasn’t been heard from in a few days.

Box Y Lucha #3280 has cover stories on Fishman and Joaquin Roldan.

The Santos are headed to Puerto Rico sometime soon.

There’s a cool gallery of created lucha libre posters here.

2) Ángel Oriental, Blue Monsther, Kesier Drago vs Atomic Star, Lunatik Xtreme, Power Bull
3) Hijo del Alebrije, Mike, Teelo vs Picudo Jr., Skanda, Vórtize

Torneo FILL 58, Gym FILL (Black Terry) vs Gym Villanos (listed as Villano III, though it’s Villano IV who’s pictured)

Midweek shows returns! Only four matches this time. Villano IV would make more sense, since he’s wrestling in Naucalpan. I feel like Climax Jr. has shown up on three or four different teams over the years.

Keshin Black really is listed on both sides of the opener.
