The opener sounds the best in the +LuchaTV descriptions, but there’s not many details there. They’ll have clips of this show at some point.
CMLL (MON) 11/20/2017 Arena Puebla [CMLL, CultIcon]
1) Millenium & Vega b Ares & Guerrero Espacial
2) Asturiano & Stukita b Joker & Pierrothito
3) Dalys b La Vaquerita [lightning]
4) Dragón Rojo Jr., Pólvora, Virus b Fuego, Stigma, Stuka Jr.
5) Ángel de Oro, Dragón Lee, Soberano Jr. b Cuatrero, Forastero, Sansón
6) Máscara Año 2000, Negro Casas, Último Guerrero b Niebla Roja, Rush, Valiente
Niebla Roja replaced Diamante Azul on Wednesday. UG used the ropes to beat Rush.
Semimain was good but not the all out match you might get on Friday with the same people. Vega told media that he was just back from an injury and wants a mask match with Pequeno Joker. No Puebla lineup for next week yet.
CMLL has a very regular show. Main event is Angel de Oro, Niebla Roja and Marco against Gran Guerrero, Negro Casas and Rey Bucanero, which has a Anniversary main event rematch in there (but no one cares at this point.) Templario gets an appearance in the second match, teaming with Akuma & Espanto versus Astral, Flyer and Robin. Fuego and Pegasso meet in an odd lightning match; I think that means Pegasso works rudo for the night.
Guadalajara has a Dragon Lee/Cavernario match. It’s their fourth of the year: one in FantasticaMania, one a Sunday TV match that CMLL just didn’t put up, one lightning match, and this one. They won’t put this one up either, but there’s a decent chance I’ll be able to record it on Saturday. Guadalajara singles matches, at least in the version they make it on TV, tend to be shorter than you’d expect. This’ll probably be fun, but don’t go in expecting a MOTYC outing.
FULL is running an earthquake victim benefit show tonight in Mexico City. The main event is Hijo de Mascara 2000, Pirata Morgan, Psicosis (Ripper) vs Dos Caras, Tinieblas and Alberto el Patron. Alberto has been doing a lot of press to promote it – here’s an interview with +LuchaTV. WWE’s Sin Cara is sending a one of his outfit to be sold off to raise money at this show.
The newest ELITE promo art for their 12/01 show includes the TV Azteca logo. TV Azteca hasn’t said anything about airing the show yet.
The group that was calling themselves “the Clash” is now calling themselves “Sin Marca” – without a brand. They eventually took Bestia and Damian off the poster.
The Newburgh, New York stop of the east coast lucha libre tour with Super Porky drew about 30 people. Show sounds like it was fun anyway. Super Porky needed help to just walk to the ring.
+LuchaTV interviewed Konnan, who says he’ll have a big announcement in December.
Lucha Libre Mexicana-Los Reyes del Ring says 70s/80s luchador Perro Sosa has passed away.
IWRG (SUN) 11/26/2017 Arena Naucalpan
1) Dragón Orus vs New Warrior
2) Toxin vs Mosca
3) Mike & Teelo vs Máquina Infernal & Tackle
4) Demonio Infernal & Dr. Cerebro vs Eterno & Heddi Karaoui
5) Liderk, Rayan, Spector vs Black Dragón, Dinamic Black, Dragón Fly
6) Black Warrior & Warrior Jr. © vs Pirata Morgan & Pirata Morgan Jr. [IWRG IC TAG]
7) Mr. Electro, Trauma I, Trauma II vs Fandango, Villano IV, Villano V Jr.
Fandango has barely ever worked in IWRG (and even then only on trainee shows) so he’s in a main event. Pirata Morgan Jr. hasn’t been here in six months, so of course he’s in line for a title match.
