indy (SUN) 08/12/2012 Arena Coliseo San Luis Potosí [Sobre el Ring]
3) Kukuxklan b Diamante Azul (CMLL) [DF HEAVY]
Kukuxklan won the title, taking falls 1/3. Azul “forgot” the actual belt (which was billed in the recap as the Mexico State Heavyweight Title), so Kukuxklan held up Azul’s newly won tag team belt instead.
That’s a weird one. Diamante Azul seems to have a title belt just so he had a title belt, and he doesn’t need it now that he has the tag team title belt so it’s not a huge surprise he’d lose to the DF title, but to a random local in San Luis Potosi? Add in that Azul didn’t actually bring the DF belt, and I lean towards expecting this title change to be not acknowledged anywhere else. We’ll see.

CMLL is promoting tonight as Noches de Alternatives, a teaming up of young wrestlers with old veterans. When you have lemons, make some lemonade. Of note, the Oro Jr. debuting in the opener is indeed the nephew of Oro II (and so Oro), introduced last March when Oro II lost his mask. He’s got big shoes to fill.
Sangre Azteca underwent knee surgery this past weekend and will be out 3-4 weeks.
22 wrestlers tried out to be licensed in Puebla. Arkangel was one of the evaluators. No word about how many were licensed, but it was said anyone who failed would have to wait 3-4 months to try again.
Ichiban Pro Wrestling says they’ll bring in Goya Kong & Tiffany for their Saturday Expo show, teaming with Goya’s sister Muneca de Plata. The three people who work for CMLL who are wrestling on the expo (thru indy promoters) are Estrellita, Goya Kong and Tiffany. (Marco is also announced as appearing.)

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.
- An AAA/DTU lineup for September has Octagon as a tecnico, so either it’s giving away the change, way late, or just ignoring the storyline because they’re near Octagon’s home town.
- Demus and Pequeno Violencia still want the hair vs hair match.
- Cronicas Y Leyendas looks back at Andre the Giant and Bam Bam Bigelow in El Toreo.
