CMLL (FRI) 01/12/2018 Arena México [CMLL, CultIcon, Notimex, thecubsfan]
1) Eléctrico & Stukita b Mercurio & Pequeño Nitro
11:55. Tecnicos took 2/3. This was Electrico’s final minis match. He will start in the main division in two weeks.
2) Cancerbero, Raziel, Universo 2000 Jr. b Flyer, Pegasso, Stigma
16:42. Rudos took 1/3.
3) Sagrado, Tiger, Virus b Blue Panther Jr., The Panther, Tritón
15:00. Tecnicos took 1/3.
4) Titán b Rey Cometa [lightning]
5) Blue Panther, Stuka Jr., Valiente b Ephesto, Mephisto, Sam Adonis
9:01. Tecnicos took 1/3. Negro Casas appeared before the match, giving Blue Panther a present to give to Sam Adonis. It was a new USA flag. Adonis started waving it around without realizing the image in the center was of a bald Donald Trump. Sam also tried wearing his wig all match, only for it to get pulled off just before the end of the match.
6) Carístico, Diamante Azul, Marco Corleone b Kráneo, Terrible, Vangellys
12:22. 2/3. Shocker was originally announced. Mr. Niebla replaced him mid day Friday but Vangellys ended up in the spot. Diamante Azul & Terrible feuded.
The show was fine to watch and seemed to have a decent crowd given the lineup, but Titan/Cometa is the only one you’d need to go back and watch if you missed.
AAA’s show is not airing until 9pm tonight, so it may be up on YouTube later than usual.
Perfil has a long bio of Argentina’s Demetrio el Gladiador, who you may know as Hip Hop Man’s father.
La Parka says Dave the Clown is a millennial who spends all day on his phone posting photos of his workout. This is fair, no one will accuse La Parka of posting photos of his workout.
The Gladiatores has an interview with Lady Shani.
CMLL (FRI) 01/19/2018 Arena México
1) Fantasy & Último Dragóncito vs Mercurio & Pequeño Nitro
2) Lady Maravilla, Marcela, Princesa Sugehit vs Amapola, Tiffany, Zeuxis
3) Esfinge, Rey Cometa, Tritón vs Raziel, Sagrado, Tiger
4) Kráneo vs Hechicero [lightning]
5) Stuka Jr., Titán, Valiente vs Euforia, Felino, Mr. Niebla
6) Carístico, Diamante Azul, Marco Corleone vs Rey Bucanero, Terrible, Vangellys
I’m here for Kraneo/Hechicero but the rest of the show is just throwing together whoever’s still around. It’s not quite a Tuesday show but it’s almost there. Waiting another week to do the Terrible/Azul title match seems to defeat the point.
