GALLI (SUN) 01/06/2013 Arena Galli [KC]
1) Mike Anthony & Mojo McQueen b Freek & Joe Fiorz
Anthony choked out Freek for the win. Good opener.
2) Matt Creed, Tommy Heisman, Will Moah b GPA, Punisher 747, Rob Michaels
After Michaels accidentally hit GPA to cause the loss, the rudos turned on him. Tecnicos made the save.
3) Acid Jazz, Marshe Rockett, Willie Richardson DDQ Jon Morales, Mason Conrad, Matt Knicks
Good match though no finish. Everyone was in the ring brawling when the referee gave up on the match.
4) Noriega b Bobby C
Noriega used a woman’s shoe multiple times, and used the tights to beat Bobby. Bobby vowed to return, maybe putting up his NYC title.
5) Nuevo Destructor I, Nuevo Destructor II, Traidor b Atomico, Chico Suave, Golden Dragon
Destructores debuted here, getting their masks before the match from Discovery. (They arrived in ski masks.) Comedic brawl, Destructor pinning Golden Dragon.
6) Calvin Beckham, Emperador, Funebre b Bandolero, Discovery, Pentagono
Quick. Beckham pinned Discovery in revenge from his hair loss.
7) Jake Shinning b Negrotistico [GALLI CHAMP]
Very good match where Shinning was eventually able to superkick Negrotistico to keep the title.
8) Ripper b Dante DVS [cage]
Ring did not enclose the ring, so Dante’s guys were free to run in until Michaels made the save. Ripper used Michaels chain to get the win. Rudos jumped both of them until the Soul Touchaz made the save.

IWRG (THU) 01/10/2013 Arena Naucalpan [The Gladiatores]
1) Seiya & Serpiente de Oro b Araña de Plata Jr. & Power Bull
2) Black Fury & Cristal b Amazona & La Jarochita
Straight falls for the rudas.
3) Alan Extreme, Cerebro Negro, Eita b Chico Che, Dinamic Black, Saruman
Rudos took 1/3, Cerebro pulling Dinamic’s mask and pinning him in the third. An angry Dinamic Black challenged Cerbero Negro to a title match.
4) Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro b Centvrión, Dr. Cerebro, Golden Magic
Oficials took 1/3. 911 caught Magic with a counter dropkick for the win.
5) el Ángel, Electroshock, Veneno DQ Eterno, Súper Nova, X-Fly
Veneno’s first match here in a little over a month. Tecnicos took 2/3, Super Nova desperately fouling Electroshock in the third.

CMLL’s show tonight is highlighted by the Bufete del Amor defending the world trios titles against an Invasor trio of Volador, Psicosis and Aguila. It’s Rush’s first match in about a month, and he probably will be celebrating by the end of it; it’s unlikely the Invasors are going to end up with both trios titles in a short time. The Estrellita/Amapola feud continues on in the segunda; might they finally announce a title match for next week?

There’s a text message ticket giveaway contest for the (not quite announced) 2013 Lucha Libre USA Masked Warriors tour. You can win 2 tickets for a show if you’re close enough to one of them, though no dates have been announced.

Mr. Cacao will be holding autograph signings for the CMLL luchadors in Japan next week. There’s a Wednesday event with Mistico, Titan, Maximo and Mephisto announced as scheduled to appear, which suggests that’s the group all going over early. (None are booked on Monday or Tuesday in Mexico.) Thursday has La Mascara, Mascara Dorada, Diamante, Volador Jr., Euforia, Okumura, and Misterioso.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update and El Paso results.

Rob has highlights of 12/18/12 CMLL.

Bill has highlights of 09/25/12 CMLL GDL.
