Main event was the expected bit to build up next week’s title match. Nothing much else going on.
ROH announced Titan & Dragon Lee will face the Young Bucks and the Best Friends (Chuck Taylor & Beretta) on Saturday’s ROH TV taping in Philadelphia. That’ll probably be the main event, and it could be for the tag titles if the Best Friends win on the PPV.
Box Y Lucha says Lluvia is planning on returning to CMLL in January. She returned to wrestling this past weekend after taking this year off to have a child.
Segunda Caida watches more random CMLL, discovers Templario.
Alberto got people to post an article about him visiting a church with no news attached. He’s got really good PR/image rehab people.

This show will honor first responders from the Mexico earthquake, including rescue dogs. That seems like it’ll be a different atmosphere than usual. It’s good CMLL cut down on how many cats they booked for the show.
Triton showing up here confirms he’s back on the main roster, and at about exactly the spot he left. It seems rare guys are allowed to just come back to CMLL, but there seems like a lesson with here with Triton and Demus; if you’re a CMLL midcarder on the road to nowhere and you get a chance to do better elsewhere, it’s worth taking. It didn’t seem like it worked out big for Triton, but all he missed out was a year of wrestling in match 2/3 and maybe a tournament appearance.
If you told me even three weeks ago that Johnny Idol & Okumura would have a reasonable strong chance of ending the Sky Team’s record breaking trios title run, I would’ve thought you insane. It’s very possible now.
This will be the last Tuesday Arena Mexico show until January 9th.
