CMLL (SUN) 08/12/2012 Arena Coliseo [CMLL]
1) Bengala & Leono b Camorra & Cholo
tecnicos took 1/3 in a poor match.
2) Camaleón, Pegasso, Sensei b Artillero, Herodes Jr., Súper Comando
Herodes’ debut. He looked fine. His father joined the announcers to talk about his son and his own debut. Tecnicos took 1/3.
3) Dalis la Caribeña, Lady Afrodita, Marcela b La Seductora, Tiffany, Zeuxis
Tecnicas took 2/3. Tiffany had a cap on to hide her head, but it was pulled off before the finish.
4) Stuka Jr. COR Namajague [lightning]
Just over four minutes, obviously went shrot. Namajague was slow to returning to the ring after a dive, though not so slow that he should’ve been counted out. Namajague went with it and fainted in the ring, but Stuka took Namajague out of the ring and beat him all around ringside, including a suplex on the ramp.
5) Hijo del Fantasma, Marco Corleone, Super Porky b Rey Escorpión, Terrible, Tiger
Tecnicos took 1/3.
6) La Sombra b Averno
Said to be a very good match. Averno attacked Sombra, ripped up his pants, gave him a Devil’s Wings on the floor, and then another in the ring to win the first fall. Averno controlled the second fall, but Sombra came back, landed a tope, and won the fill with the Brillante Bomb. Third fall had a lot of near falls, including Averno reversing the Brillante Bomb (first one?) into a small package. Planned finish appeared to be a top rope headscissors, but they slipped and Sombra lost Averno. Averno still feel, hitting the mat face first. Both were down for a bit, before getting up and finishing with Sombra’s elevated German suplex. Post match challenges included Sombra asking for the mask vs hair match, and Averno offering it – if Sombra could beat him again.
I had a few distractions during the second half of this show, but what I saw of the main event looked really good. Main event was long, but 52MX gave Tiffany/Marcela nearly 30 minutes this week, there shouldn’t be a timing reason to clip this one up.

2) Hermano Muerte II Jr., Hijo del Espectro de Ultratumba, Sepulcro Jr. b Jaque Mate II, Masakre Jr., Talisman Jr. [JUNIOR TRIOS]

Full list of participants is not confirmed; recap mentions 54 wrestlers. Recap mentions Argenis, so Brazo de Plata is less likely to have participated. Axxel beat Heddi Karoui with a caballo to win.
Axel won Torneo Amigo de Siempre, eliminating Heddi Karoui in the linked to a video. I believe this was taped for TVC Deportes. Hijo del Medico Asesino is back, and did a big reveal to reveal he was still wearing his mask.
The Gladiatores Facebook says their website is down for a few days while they do remodeling. Hope they’re back soon.
Diamante Azul was billed as defending his Mexico City Heavyweight title versus Kukuxklan today in Arena Mexico San Luis Potosi (not located in Mexico City.) That’s the first known defense for the DF titles after they were handed out a couple months ago.
Video of the Perros attacking Hector Garza.
SuperLuchas #475 has Perro & Cibernetico on the cover, with more TripleMania coverage. It includes an interview with Danny Casas, who confirms he’s the former Hammer and the grandson of Pepe Casas. Nanizh Rock is his sister, and back in school (so no longer around AAA.) He mentions Tiger, Puma, Canelo Casas and Destroyer (??) as his cousins.
Rob has highlights of 02/94 AAA.
IWRG has an interview with El Chicano.
Lucha Libre In Japan
2) Super Crazy b Satoshi Kajiwara
3) Kento Miyahara b Ricky Marvin
This week’s AAA TV mentions Dinastia will be going on an extended tour of Japan. No promotion was mentioned. NOAH makes the most sense at first glance, but they’ve just announced a junior tag team tournament and Dinastia isn’t among the names. NJPW is CMLL only. Ozz & Cuervo worked for AJPW, but they’ve announced cards for the next month. Dragon Gate?
