CMLL (FRI) 01/06/2012 Arena Mexico [CMLL]
1) Camaleón & Leono b Bobby Zavala & Disturbio
2) Arkángel de la Muerte, Nitro, Skándalo b Ángel Azteca Jr., Pegasso, Rey Cometa
3) Euforia, Misterioso Jr., Shigeo Okumura b Stuka Jr., Titán, Triton
Rudos took 2/3. Titan & Triton lose again, though not directly their fault. Euforia snuck in a foul on Stuka and dropped him with the Euforica Special.
4) Pólvora b Sagrado [lightning]
Polvora won via anti-air dropkick in 9:14
5) Atlantis, Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr. b Dragón Rojo Jr., Rey Escorpion, Último Guerrero
Tecnicos took 2/3, with an Atlantida on Dragon Rojo and a moonsault on Rey Escorpion.
6) Marco Corleone, Máximo, Rush DQ Felino, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas
Niebla fouled Rush for the DQ. Trio Senscaion is still undefeated.
This should air next week on Galavision/Televisa when they resume normal shows.
The King, who also wrestled as Black Charly, passed away last month. He was another Laguna born wrestler who made it to the UWA wrestler in the early 1990s
Alebrije/Kraneo says Cuije is still going to be with him, but you’ll have to be there Sunday to find out his new look & name.
Porra Fresa begins it’s look back at 2011 with the foreigners and the women. The foreigner who appeared most in Arena Puebla was Yoshihashi, and the woman was Luna Magica. That seems a bit mean.
DTU & IWL will run a combo show on 02/18. Press conference on Wednesday to announce foreign talent.
Lucha Libe in Japan
01/17 AJPW: Ozz (O), Cuervo, Black Bushi b Kenzo Suzuki, Kaz Hayashi, Hiroshi Yamato [X]
NJPW is hosting a fan club party with CMLL and NJPW wrestlersd when they’re in for the tour. Just the CMLL rudos – Mephisto, Volador, Okumura and Misterioso – so the tecnicos must be hanging out with other people.
Veneno returns to SMASH on their02/19 show, teaming with Kenzo Suzuki. They never teamed in Japan, but were on opposite sides of Mexico vs Japan matches when the Dragon Gate guys were coming into IWRG (and teasing Dragon Gate Mexico.)

CMLL (FRI) 01/13/2012 Arena Mexico
1) Aereo & Pequeño Halcón vs Mercurio & Pequeño Universo 2000
2) Hombre Bala Jr. vs Disturbio [lightning]
3) Dalis la Caribeña, Dark Angel, Marcela vs Amapola, Princesa Blanca, Zeuxis
4) Stuka Jr., Titán, Triton vs Euforia, Misterioso Jr., Shigeo Okumura
5) Atlantis, Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr. vs Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto
6) La Máscara, La Sombra, Máscara Dorada vs Mr. Águila, Psicosis, Volador Jr.
Really strong lineup. This is the first time the Golden Generacion trios has teamed in Arena Mexico since they lost the titles, and versus a fun rudo team. Psicosis appears to be totally correct about not having to change his name.
Semimain matches the national champs versus the world champs in what should also be pretty good.
Special is a rematch from this past week, likely focusing more on Stuka & Euforia.
Even the women’s match is pretty strong. It and the champs versus champ match should air on Fox, while the other two would normally be Televisa/Galavision matches.
Lightning match is likely a followup to Hombre Bala’s win, but it’s also the biggest chance for Disturbio yet (outside of first round Gran Alternativa exists.)
Minis are just the low men on the totem pole. They have something in Mercurio. I don’t know what they do with it, but he should be a rudo of note in the next couple of years.
