CMLL (SUN) 08/05/2012 Arena Mexico [Kaiser Sports (1-5), Kaiser Sports (hair)]
1) Astral, Eléctrico, Último Dragoncito b Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Olímpico, Pequeño Warrior
Tecnicos took 2/3 in a lackluster match.
2) Hijo del Fantasma, Pegasso, Rey Cometa b Niebla Roja, Puma King, Virus
tecnicos took 2/3 in a match too exciting for internet streams.
3) Kráneo, Morphosis, Psicosis b Blue Panther, Diamante, Guerrero Maya Jr.
Rudos took 1/3. Panther submitted Morphosis, rudos teamed up to beat Maya, and tripped Diamante off the top rope to pin him.
4) Mr. Niebla DQ Shocker [lightning]
Niebla tossed his mask to Shocker for the DQ in 7:15 in a match heavy on Niebla & Zacarias comedy. Shocker challenged Niebla – then proposed to his girlfriend Leslie! She accepted. Obvious scene for El Luchador.
5) La Sombra, Máximo, Super Porky DQ Averno, Black Warrior, Terrible
Tecnicos took 2/3. Averno fouled Sombra and ripped off his mask for good measure. Sombra challenged Averno to a singles match next wee. Averno said yes, and he’d win in two falls. Sombra says that if he wins, he wants a mask vs Averno’s ugly hair match.
6) Marcela b Tiffany [hair]
Seconds were Kraneo and Astral. Tiffany’s mom, the original la Diabolica, was in the crowd. Tiffany attacked Marcela with a plastic pipe before the match. Marcela fought back in a longer than average first fall, but Tiffany won with a Buca Storm. Second fall was also long, with Kraneo interfering. Tiffany escaped a Michinoku Driver into a cradle, but Marcela reversed it and grab the ropes for the pin. Tiffany and Kraneo protested, and got Tigre Hispano kicked out as referee. Maya replaced him. Tiffany and Marclea kicked out of each other’s finishes in a long third fall, and Marcela won with a super Michinoku Driver. Tiffany’s mom came in the ring to give her daughter a hug and cut off part of the hair. Tiffany shaved some of her own hair.
In the Kaiser Sports link, Tiffany explains she was not going to shave her hair until her mom came to the ring, and Tiffany thought about all the times her mother handled her wins and losses well, and how her father lost her mask in the arena and relented. Tiffany is not going away and vowed to win the title. Kraneo was mentioned as Tiffany’s husband; that’s something known but not acknowledged often.
The Terra feed was awful the first half of the show. They shut the feed down for a time during the second and third match. It was steadier late in show, but still required reloading to work every so often. The quality of the stream has gone down each week.

30 man battle royal, eliminations by over the top, everyone starts in the ring. Listed in reverse order of elimination. Dinamic Black & Bestia 666 replaced Hijo de Dr. Wagner Jr. (TripleMania) & Imposible (?). Relampago hurt a leg on a elimination. Chicano eliminated himself by diving on Eterno. Final three were Karoui, Park and Morgan. The juniors worked together to eliminate the man from France, then they both went over at the same time but Pirata was able to hang on and stay in the ring. Hijo del Pirata Morgan earns a shot at the Rey del Ring title, held by Oficial Factor.
There’s a good handheld of the Mascara Ano 2000 Jr. vs Dr. Wagner mask match on YouTube already.
Billy did not win in Arena Xalapa, but did beat up everyone else.
