CMLL (MON) 12/23/2019 Arena Puebla [CMLL, Lucha Central]
1) Asturiano & Tigre Rojo Jr. b Joker & Policeman
tecnicos took 1/3
2) Oro Jr. & Súper Astro Jr. b El Malayo & El Perverso
3) Okumura, Olímpico, Rey Cometa DQ Sagrado, Stigma, Templario [Relevos Increíbles]
Team Stigma took 1/3, the last when he was unmasked by Rey Cometa. Cometa worked as rudo and heavily feuded with Stigma.
4) Mephisto, Terrible, Vangellys b Atlantis Jr., Kráneo, Volcano
rudos took 1/3
5) Titán b Soberano Jr. [lightning]
Mr. Niebla was remembered before the match. Titan won with springboard double stomp.
6) Euforia, Valiente, Volador Jr. b Carístico, Felino, Negro Casas [Relevos Increíbles]
Team Volador took 1/3, Volador stealing Caristico’s mask to set up a singles match.
CMLL honored Mr. Niebla before the semi-main. This death, with Mr. Niebla so recently part of CMLL and close to everyone, seemed to affect a lot of people.
Titan versus Soberano seemed good from what I saw of it. The two relevos increibles were focused on building up those matches.
There are no shows tonight, as lucha libre takes their traditional break on Christmas Eve. The Tuesday Arena Mexico show will take place on Wednesday. The Tuesday Arena Coliseo Guadalajara show will take place Friday.
CMLL’s Wednesday show has a 5 pm CT start time (or 2.5 hours earlier than usual.) It’s a double title match show, with one new title.
Dalys finally gets her championship match against Marcela, delayed from the Anniversary show. The first micros champion is determined between Guapito, Atomo, Zakarias, Gallito, Chamuel, and Microman. Both Microman and Dalys are very protected in CMLL’s booking and heavy favorites to win, though one is a bit more well-received than the other. Neither champion is really in a key position, the champion really only matters in determining the quality of title matches, and those aren’t going to vary much with so few people challenging for these titles. Marcela keeping the women’s title over Dalys may mean slightly better matches, though both are likely to keep facing each other regardless. The next CMLL Micros title match is probably Chamuel & Microman regardless of who wins. Microman winning would make the fans happy, dalys would make whatever her fanbase is happy, so maybe that’s all the reason there needs to be for those outcomes.
It did occur to me that the next time Peste Negra’s music plays in Arena Mexico will be when Zacarias walks out for this micros championship match. CMLL has resisted the urge to change finishes due to recent deaths in the past, though the stakes are so low in the micros match and people might react strongly to the popular Zakarias getting a surprise title win. It’s a possibility.
Wednesday’s main event has Los Guerreros Laguneros (Euforia, Gran Guerrero and Ultimo Guerrero) taking on Diamante Azul, Bandido, and Mistico. CMLL hyped Bandido appearing frequently last night on Puebla, they seem sure he’s appearing in Arena Mexico and not the Torreon show he’s also listed on. Hechicero, Templario, and Terrible face Atlantis Jr., Soberano Jr. and Kraneo in the semi-main. Kawato & Dulce meet one week before their hair match in the tercera, with Flyer, Cometa, Mephsito and Rey Bucanero around them. Robin and Sonic open it up with Coyote and Grako, a match-up that has been close to being good in the past. Again, the show starts at 5 pm CT this week and next.
Other Christmas Shows
- Arena Lopez Mateos has a Traumas vs Pagano & Demus main event.
- Psycho Clown, Chessman, Pagano and a wrestler TBA main event Arena Naucalpan. This show will also be Monster Clown’s first high profile appearance since losing his mask in a singles match against Aerostar.
- Arena Neza has Los Cerebros vs Los Diabolicos in a double hair match. That seems bloody.
There probably will not be a news update on Wednesday. There’s just not news until late. Not sure if I’m going to be watching the CMLL show live either.
+LuchaTV has a new episode of En+carados.
CMLL (FRI) 12/27/2019 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) El Divino, Fantástico, Mr. Samurai vs Demonio Maya, Demonio Rojo, Difunto
2) La Guerrera, La Jarochita, Mystique vs La Infernal, La Seductora, Metálica
3) Esfinge, Kráneo, Volcano vs Furia Roja, Hechicero, Rey Bucanero
4) Atlantis Jr., Mephisto, Soberano Jr. vs Fugaz, Gran Guerrero, Último Guerrero [Relevos Increíbles]
5) Terrible © vs Diamante Azul [MEX HEAVY]
Some match for next week is probably coming out of that main event. Might Diamante Azul finally win a major heavyweight title? Not sure if any of this will air even locally.
CMLL (SUN) 12/29/2019 Arena México
1) Acero, Aéreo, Último Dragóncito vs Pequeño Olímpico, Pequeño Universo 2000, Pequeño Violencia
2) Eléctrico, Magnus, Oro Jr. vs Akuma, Hijo del Signo, Nitro
3) Black Panther, Drone, Príncipe Diamante vs Dark Magic, Espíritu Negro, Tiger
4) Stigma vs Okumura [lightning]
5) Diamante Azul, Titán, Valiente vs Cuatrero, Forastero, Vangellys
6) Volador Jr. vs Gran Guerrero
I keep thinking CMLL is going to something here the following Sunday as an early Three King’s Day show, but there doesn’t seem to be any sign of it on this card. They’re getting thru Volador/Gran Guerrero and nothing seems to be set up in early matches. Principe Diamante & Espiritu Negro have their likely last match against each other, which breaks up the Ola Negra trio.
CMLL (SUN) 12/29/2019 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Crixus, Luminoso, Paladín vs Cris Skin, Fúnebre, Paymon
2) Fantástico, Mr. Samurai, Reycko vs Demonio Maya, Demonio Rojo, Difunto
3) Blue Panther Jr., Explosivo, Fugaz vs Joker, Sádico, Vaquero Jr.
4) Principe Daniel vs Exterminador [hair]
5) Carístico, Satánico, Shocker vs Blue Panther, Hechicero, Místico [Relevos Increíbles]
Another relvos increibles, this one to get Hechicero and Satanico on opposite sides.
