Vangellys, Grako, and Gangster Jr. attacked Juventued Guerrera

What a main event heel group. This seemed decently attended but the main event was not good – got different reports on Guerrera’s team winning or a double countout, but it was definitely a situation where neither team was all that interested in losing. Demus destroying the promotion’s belt seems fun.

Someone, somewhere needs these results. Maybe. I’m not sure if the Sangre Fria Jr. here is the same one in Guadalajara; he had a long day if so. Toryumon Mexico usually has a March/April show before DragonMania

2nd defense. Villano V helped his kids win, but it was eventually ruled a DQ.

The Multifacetico match sounded like it was the best match on the show but no one was really invested in a battle between guys who aren’t regulars. Main event was bad.

“many irregularities”

+Lucha was probably taping this one. Handhelds are starting to turn up already, though I’m about 2.5 weeks behind in adding them hem to the database. The tercera was LA Park Jr.’s official debut. He’d wrestled as Ultimo Sadox earlier the night at CAR The Crash (results) and been revealed to be the new Parka. He’s got a different looking mask and size than his older (?) brother, so it’ll be easier to tell them apart visually than by name.

A lot of CMLL b-shows blend together. Tonight’s Puebla show looks like a bit more memorable. There’s a title match with an unusual contender and a weird tournament to make it interesting.

Luciferno challenges Niebla Roja in the main event. Luciferno is an unfortunate case, a luchador who was a fun undercard luchador for years who didn’t get a shot until he was old enough for his son to be on the roster (I miss El Rebelde) and his body started to betray him. Luciferno has shown a willingness to try a crazy thing or two in his rare singles matches, like a better version of modern Rey Bucanero, and last week’s match with Niebla Roja was promising. Even if it’s not good, it’s just good to see CMLL giving someone else a shot instead of running singles matches with the same four or five challengers.

CMLL typically runs a three-week incredible pairs tournament in Arena Mexico around this time. It may or may not be happening due to the Universal tournament; we’ll never know until CMLL gets around to announcing. The concept is at least coming to Arena Puebla tonight, with teams of rudos and tecnicos teaming up. CMLL one-night tournaments are generally not good, but it does give a situation where there will be different match-ups than usual and no definite favorite. Valiente & Perverso, Kraneo & Malayo and Dragon Rojo & Araklis seem unlikely to win with a not-pushed local involved. (It would’ve been a stronger concept if it was all CDMX/Puebla teams. Likely the CMLL booking formula wouldn’t allow for such fun.) Asking Shocker to wrestle three matches seems unfair both to him and the viewer, so he and Black Panther can be skipped over. That still leaves Diamante Azul & Tiger, Euforia & local hero Stigma, Hechciero & Audaz, and Stuka & Polvora as all having reasonable shots of winning this. The real thrill is if this tournament was actually leading anywhere. I’ll still settle for some randomness for one night

The tournament takes up most of the card, so there’s only one more match: TIgre Rojo Jr, Millenium, Tigre Rojo Jr. versus Fuerza Chicana, Policeman, and Siki Osama Junior making his first appearance in four years. An older local wrestler showing up in Arena Puebla often leads to a mask match, though is usually takes a couple weeks for that to develop.

The show will stream at 9pm on CMLL’s YouTube channel.

El Sol de Tlaxcala has an interview with Templario, talking about him representing Tlaxcala in Japan. He mentions he originally went to Pachuca to train, it didn’t work out, and he ended up in Arena Mexico instead. That seems like a lucky break. Templario mentions a vague plan to tour the US and “some Central America countries” this year.

The mystery 01/31 NJPW World CMLL broadcast is the 01/06 show, which includes the Reyes del Aire. It’ll air before the month turns over for NJPW World but you shouldn’t wait too long to watch it if you’re not interested in paying for February.

Arkangel Divino replaced Toxin (injury) on the 02/01 EMW show.

Box Y Lucha #3370 has Barbaro Cavernario as a future idol. There’s also an interview with Tinieblas Jr. shooting down a Lucha Expo in Mexico City as false. This thing was mentioned by Hijo del Santo over the weekend and in the Planchitas column today. I’ve heard more about this from people shooting it down than I ever saw it advertised, but that’s probably for the best.

The new CMLL Guadalajara TV show starts on 02/06. Not sure what time, not sure what it’ll cover, not sure if it means the other one is going away. The channel does have an internet stream.

ContraLona has a short interview with Vanilla.

Multimedios posted their version of TripleMania on YouTube.

El Manana has an interview with Bella Karina.

I’m ok with more Villano IV if we pretend he’s the new La Bestia del Ring. Can’t do both.

  1. As far as I can tell, yes. They haven’t said a lot about him until the last few weeks so I’m not 100% sure.
