(As mentioned by Alexis before – gracias!)
Averno is your new CMLL World Middleweight Champion, beating Negro Casas tonight. I’m shocked and pleased. This means the (arguably) best current tag team in Mexico has two singles titles; Mephisto is still the CMLL Welterweight Champion. (You gotta figure they’re going to do a Negro/Mistico vs Averno/Mephisto match soon.)
The Anniversary card is also due out tomorrow. Tomorrow’s going to be interesting.
VdE is finishing up right now:
AAA TV (SUN) 09/17 El Toreo de Cuatro Caminos Results [Yosoyelkiss]
1) Laredo Kid b Kaoma Jr. and El Apache [dream, toreno, final]
2) Cinthia Moreno, El Elegido, Mascara Sagrada, Pimpinela b La Diabolica, Mini Abismo Negro, Pirata Morgan, Polvo de Estrellas
3) Crazy Boy, Joe Lider, Juventued Guerrera, Psicosis II b Chessman, Cuervo, Escoria, Ozz [sf]
Joe Lider was carried out after a move gone wrong. Shocking.
4) AJ Styles, Homicide, Low-Ki, Samoa Joe DQ Abismo Negro, Charly Manson, Electroshock, Histeria [sf]
Charly Manson is either a permanent new Viper, or the biggest name they forget to put on the card and taking up the first empty space. Whichever, his team still lost when Abismo Negro used a martiente on Homicide. Given Homicide’s close friendship with Konnan, I expected a better profile debut for him here.
5) Cinthia Moreno, Estrellita b Tiana Ringer, Traci Brooks
The woman isn’t supposed to be a mystery, but I’m completely blanking on the women who was supposed to replace Christy Hemme; I’d assume she was here as she was supposed to be, though I’m not sure anyone would know the difference.; Update: Thank you to Tiger Driver for allowing me to sleep tonight. Tiffany was supposed to be here, and I didn’t read a reason why she wasn’t. Mexican women won (as they really should), but Chessman kidnapped Estrellita post match. Cibernetico was taken out near the start of the show, so he couldn’t make the save here. Chessman (and not Muerte) grabbing Estrellita doesn’t seem to make any sense, so it could’ve been a mistaken report, or it could’ve just been AAA booking.
6) Alan Stone, Hator, Scorpio Jr., Zumbido b Intocable, Oriental, Super Porky, Zorro
KrisZ reported Porky was in a car accident earlier this weekend, but he did end up making this match. Hator replaced Shocker, and who knows if that is a permanent deal. Zumbido did show, as did a mystery masked man who attacked Intocable. I guess he’s getting a new feud.
7) AJ Styles, Low-Ki, Samoa Joe b Crazy Boy, Joe Lider, Juventued Guerrera [final]
I guess Homicide was out of this match selling the martiente, but I’m not sure why Psicsois wasn’t wrestling instead of Joe Lider, if Joe Lider got carted out before. Tons of run ins and TNA guys won. If you are a ROH fan marking out about seeing those three names together, you do not actually want this tape. (I can only imagine the things the Mexican trio tried in order to get in good with the US guys.) People were leaving after this match.
8) Gronda II, La Parka Jr., Octagon ?? Abyss, Jeff Jarrett, Konnan
Gronda was the ‘surprise’, which caused the recapper to leave. I’ll try to find a finish tomorrow, as well as any other missing details.
CMLL: Atlantis vs Mistico. Mistico’s Mexico themed outfit looks good, and both of this dives here. Nice camera angle on Atlantis’ tope. Atlantis actually got the visual victory, having Mistico in the Atlantida while Warrior was talking to the ref for god knows what reason. The finishing sequence did not look particularly good – it was an up and over sunset flip which never got over, and they had to improvise..
AAA: La Parka Jr., Octagon, Intocable vs Muerte Cibernetica, Chessman, Charly Manson in Hidalgo. Storyline here were La Parka/Muerte feuding, Charly/Intocable feuding, and La Parka reversing a whip on Muerte, which led Muerte to get accidentally chair shot by Chessman. That’s not going to help! MUERTE CIBERNETICA CAN SELL A STUNNER! Obviously, it’s just a Mexican thing. Pierroth was right about Puerto Rico all along!
There are scattered notes about the RXLL show on the box y lucha board. Sounds like the same basic show, but attendances was down (they moved people in from the cheap seats), with Vampiro and Nosawa doing the hardcore main event. Teddy Hart appeared, but did not wrestle.
