CMLL (MON) 08/06/2012 Arena Puebla [Periodio Enfoque]
3) Cancerbero, Nosferatu, Virus b Pegasso, Sensei, Starman
4) Namajague b Triton [lightning]
5) Averno, Ephesto, Niebla Roja b Diamante, Máximo, Sagrado
6) Atlantis, La Sombra, Volador Jr. DQ Máscara Dorada, Mr. Niebla, Último Guerrero [Relevos Increíbles]
It reads like Niebla fouled Volador, not sure. Team Atlantis wrestled as the tecnicos.

Reports from Leon says the Mistico debut tour did not draw well there.

Perros del Mal’s Facebook breathlessly reports Perro Aguayo bled so much, he nearly damaged his cerebral cortex. (That sounds like something I’m not getitng right.) He’s questionable for Friday’s TV taping.

Fuego en el Ring has a interview with Euforia, who feels he proved he belonged in En Busca de Un Idolo thanks to his excellent performances. Everyone knew he was excellent, that’s not why people thought he shouldn’t be in that tournament. Euforia says he’s reached the top and plans on staying there, but he wants the people to recognize him as a real star.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.

The Gladiatores has the post-TripleMania press conference with Mesias, Wagner and Joaquin.

Lucha Libre in Japan

08/07 NJPW: Rush [6] b Naito [4] – Rush is back up to a 1st place tie. Rush won when Naito tried landing on his feet after a German suplex, went down with a knee injury, and took the Rush Driver. Other people believe this may be a legit injury, but I’m leaning towards it being a way of having Naito lose to Rush without having it clean. (Hooray for unique pessimism!)

08/05 DIANA: Mima Shimoda [O] & Kyoko Inoue b Zap I & Zap T [X] – A Mima 25th Anniversary match. She was invited to join this Japanese but indicated she’d was coming back to Mexico. This is the promotion where Yumiko Hotta and the other ex-REINA Japanese natives ended up, which does confirm Mima ended leaving REINA with the rest of the Japanese (instead of staying like the rest of the CMLL women), and that’s why she hasn’t been around as much this year.

Lineup

CMLL (SUN) 08/12/2012 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Azteca de Oro & Javier Cruz Jr. vs Sádico & Thunder Boy
2) León Blanco vs Smaker, Metatrón, Esfinge, Halcon de Plata, Mr. Trueno, Espectrum, In Memoriam, Acertijo, Infierno [cibernetico]
3) Atlantis & Titán vs Dragón Rojo Jr. & Último Guerrero
4) Gallo vs Malefico [hair, mask]
Gallo is putting his mask up, Malefico is putting his hair.

I’m still skeptical moving this shows to 12:30 is going to make any difference – no one seemed to mention going to the first show – but they are working hard at doing big matches to get people to adjust to the new time. Mistico debuted here last week, this week a Gallo mask match with a decent semimain. They’re probably heading to an underdcard match in the near future

CMLL (MON) 08/13/2012 Arena Puebla
1) Blue Center & Tigre Rojo Jr. vs Fuerza Chicana & Siki Ozama Jr.
2) Bengala, Soberano Jr., Stigma vs Artillero, Bobby Zavala, Súper Comando
3) Dalis la Caribeña, Lluvia, Marcela vs La Comandante, Princesa Sugheit, Zeuxis
4) Sensei vs Nosferatu [lightning]
5) Hijo del Fantasma, Shocker, Super Porky vs Averno, Felino, Pólvora
6) Atlantis, La Sombra, Volador Jr. vs Máscara Dorada, Mr. Niebla, Último Guerrero [Relevos Increíbles]

Main event rematch. What did Puebla do to get that lightning match? Stigma/Zavala again i the second match.

CMLL (SUN) 08/12/2012 Arena Coliseo
1) Bengala & Leono vs Camorra & Cholo
2) Camaleón, Pegasso, Sensei vs Artillero, Herodes Jr., Súper Comando
3) Dalis la Caribeña, Lady Afrodita, Marcela vs La Seductora, Tiffany, Zeuxis
4) Stuka Jr. vs Namajague [lightning]
5) Hijo del Fantasma, Marco Corleone, Super Porky vs Rey Escórpion, Terrible, Tiger
6) La Sombra vs Averno

I like the main! I like the lightning match!

Looks like a total debut on Herodes; thought he might have appeared on the Juniors promotion (which seems to have disappeared) but there are no previous known matches under that name.

CMLL (SUN) 08/12/2012 Arena Coliseo
1) Bengala & Leono vs Camorra & Cholo
2) Camaleón, Pegasso, Sensei vs Artillero, Herodes Jr., Súper Comando
3) Dalis la Caribeña, Lady Afrodita, Marcela vs La Seductora, Tiffany, Zeuxis
4) Stuka Jr. vs Namajague [lightning]
5) Hijo del Fantasma, Marco Corleone, Super Porky vs Rey Escórpion, Terrible, Tiger
6) La Sombra vs Averno

4/6 are matches for me. Possibly other people, but primarily me.

I wrote a thing for this week’s C3 show about how Lady Afrodita makes no sense as a ruda. Perhaps others agree!

First known match for Herodes Jr.; can’t find any indy appearances for him, at least under that name.

CMLL (WED) 08/22/2012 Arena Lopez Mateos
5) Atlantis, La Máscara, Mistico vs Mephisto, Rey Escórpion, Último Guerrero

It’s been a while since the old Wednesday shows here; you have go back to last March, a main event of Atlantis & Ultimo Guerrero vs Cien Caras Jr. & Mascara Ano 2000 Jr.
