CMLL (SUN) 11/27/2011 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [El Occidental]
6) Dragón Rojo Jr. b Máscara Dorada
Dragon Rojo attacked Dorada during his entrance and won the first fall. Mask ripping second fall, with Dorada taking the fall. Dragon beat Dorada in the third fall when Dorada had his hand on the ropes.
Looks like a really bad turnout.
El Pancracio’s latest update is up, and the opening article seems to be guessing Sangre Azteca as the next luchador jump to Perros del Mal. Unless there’s another person who’s traveled to Europe to train wrestled and has “been converted to tecnico against his will.” I don’t think Sangre Azteca really wanted to be a tecnico (how you can tell: watch any of his 2011 matches), but I do think he was told he’d have plenty to do as a tecnico and not getting any of that is probably as much the source of the unhappiness.
Tonight’s Arena Puebla show has the Virus vs Dragon Lee CMLL (occasionally super) lightweight title match. It doesn’t feel like time for Dragon Lee to win, but CMLL is so clearly high on him that it feels 50/50. That match would be a really great week for Puebla to turn up on YouTube, just to know what Virus is capable. (That’s really why to root for Virus to win – more Virus singles matches.)
Luchas 2000 #597 has five different stories on the cover.
Rob has highlights of 11/15/11 C3.
- Arena Jalisco de Guadalajara says they’ll welcome DTU wrestlers, as long as they obey the rules about no extreme fighting in their arena. (DTU is going to nearby Arena Roberto Paz.)
- DJ Spectro starts a history of the Ultraman character
Both Guerra de Titanes and Sin Piedad are 12/16, so I’ll definitely be running a chat and live results on that night.
There’s now a page of YouTube/video links added in the last week, in case you’re looking for what popped up (or what I’ve gotten to) lately. Updates nightly.
CMLL (SUN) 12/04/2011 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Thunder Boy vs Javier Cruz Jr.
2) Esfinge & Hierro vs Ángel del Mal & Infierno
3) León Blanco vs Gran Kenut
4) Ángel Azteca, Black Metal, Gallo vs Magnum, Mr. Trueno, Rey Trueno
5) Hijo del Fantasma & La Máscara vs Rey Bucanero & Terrible
Down to just five DF guys (and the return of local vs local feuds.) Magnum seems to be flipping back and forward between sides depending on who they need on that show.
