It appears there will not be a CMLL on Terra broadcast tomorrow. The announcers had been talking about the shows airing until the end of 2012. There is no CMLL show listed for Sunday on Terra’s programming schedule and not the usual promotional article on their website. CMLL.com’s main page still has a graphic for the show. That may just be out of date. We’ll find out tomorrow, but the immediate affect is the Pequeno Reyes del Aire match may just be seen live since it’s not in a usual TV spot.
52MX aired the top 3 from Sunday.
The DF Heavyweight Championship in SLP – the one Diamante Azul lost and then CMLL decided to ignore – switched hands from Kukuxklan to Lover Boy this past week.

CMLL (FRI) 01/11/2013 Arena Mexico
1) Hombre Bala Jr. & Super Halcón Jr. vs Herodes Jr. & Inquisidor
2) Estrellita, Luna Mágica, Silueta vs Amapola, Tiffany, Zeuxis
3) Hijo del Fantasma, Stuka Jr., Valiente vs Namajague, Puma, Tiger
4) Diamante Azul vs Rey Escorpión [lightning]
5) Atlantis, Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr. vs Felino, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas
6) Marco Corleone, Máximo, Rush vs Mr. Águila, Psicosis, Volador Jr. [CMLL TRIOS]
Marco Corleone, Rush and Maximo are champions
If the best of material is running for 3 weeks, this would be the first taping to air on Teleivsa in the new year.
This is not quite champions versus champions – Kraneo is on the National Trios team instead of Volador – but pretty close. Bufete del Amor previously beat Invasor team Kraneo, Olimpico and Psicosis last July in their third defense. This would be their sixth and it seems likely they get it.
This will be the 5th straight week of a woman’s trio with Amapola & Estrellita, much longer than they usually go with these things. Maybe the holiday pre-emptions affected things. CMLL will likely be a little short staffed next Friday (and next Sunday) with people wrestling in Japan. Maybe that’s when they do the title match? Mr. 2013 debuting on that show would make some sense as well.
IWL (FRI) 01/18/2013 Deportivo Tlalli, Tlalnepantla
1) Chica Bacteria, Mini Picudo, Sexy Rubí, Sky Man vs Aztrik, Pequeño Demonio, Príncipe Siniestro, Spectrus 2000
2) Adamantium, Ángel Astral, Galeón vs Alfanje, Crazy Man, Rey Bucanero Jr. [lumberjack strap]
Women fans from the audience will be the lumberjacks
3) Ninja De Fuego vs Flamita, Terror, Carroña, Impulso, Periko, Freelance, Pantera I, Rayo Del Futuro [TLC, IWL INTERNET]
4) Infierno Kid, Ojo Diabólico Jr, Último Vampiro vs Calle 13, Mike Segura, Tony Rivera
5) Cerebro Negro vs Carta Brava Jr. I [IWL CHAMP]
Cerebro Negro is the champ
6) Dance Boy, Pagano, Shitara, X-Fly vs Ángel o Demonio, León Rojo, Ludark Shaitan, Ovett
A second show in under a month; the bigger DF indy promotions are actually active this January. I count 39 luchadors (and some fans), which is a low number for IWL.
