CMLL (MON) 09/03/2012 Arena Puebla [Porra Fresa]
1) Asturiano, Blue Center, Dinámikoo b Fuerza Chicana, Policeman, Siki Ozama Jr.
2) Molotov, Sensei, Stigma b Artillero, Hooligan, Súper Comando
Tecnicos took 1/3
3) Amapola, La Comandante, Zeuxis b Dalis la Caribeña, Luna Mágica, Marcela
Rudas took 2/3.
4) Pólvora b Stuka Jr. [lightning]
Polvora survived Stuka’s torpedo plancha and went on to win.
5) Atlantis, Diamante Azul, Titán b Rey Bucanero, Terrible, Tiger
TRT jumped the tecnicos, tied Atlantis and Titan in the ropes, and beat on Diamante Azul until they were DQed. Rudos settled down and won the second, but Diamante Azul surprised Terrible with a german suplex to win the third. Azul challenged Terrible to a title match, and Terrible accepted.
6) Hiroshi Tanahashi b Rush
Rush entered first, but fought Tanahashi on the ramp and beat him early with an armbar. Tanahashi fought back and won the second fall with his frog splash. Rush got a lot of near falls in the third (with the fans getting on referee Terror Chino for counting too slow), but Tanahashi snuck in a foul to get the win.
Terrible beat Tanahashi and Tanahashi beat Rush, so poor Rush is doomed come next Friday. There’s no way at all he could possibly win.
CMLL (TUE) 09/04/2012 Arena Queretaro [Haciendo La Lucha]
4) Diamante Azul, Fuego Latino, Hijo del Fantasma b Perro Del Ring, Rebelde Punk, Rey Bucanero
Fuego Latino replaced an injuried Ursus.
5) Atlantis, La Máscara, Máximo DQ Drabek I, Drabek II, Principe
Tecnicos took 2/3, rudos fouled Atlantis for the DQ.
Rey Cometa told folks in Queretaro that he’d like Espiritu Negro, his brother, to be his second for the Anniversary show. That’s going to ruin some fantasy booking plans.
Taichi arrived in Mexico yesterday. In an interview with Kaiser Sports, Taichi said he’s targeting Maximo (revenge for the hair loss), Angel de Oro (for beating him in the Super Juniors match) and would like a middleweight or light heavyweight championship match. Taichi says he’s changed over the last two years, he’s different from everyone else, and CMLL will be happy because he’s going to sell out every building he’s in.
Another article, for NJPW’s site, revealed Taichi does not want to work with his Japanese partners. Taichi is part of the (Minoru) Suzuki Army in his home promotion, enemies of Tanahashi, and doesn’t really want to team up with Tanahashi in Mexico. This is probably a story just to keep the Japan feud going despite the team up, and also a possible hint on Friday’s outcome.
AAA (Konnan) held a training seminar and tryout in Winnipeg a couple weeks ago. The selling point of the seminar was the best trainee getting to come to Mexico for AAA. AJ Sanchez, who won the spot, talked about the tryout and his career to Slam. He’ll be in Mexico from November 15-30, which should be just before Guerra de Titanes. The article mentions he’ll work two shows, though the article does not mention if they’ll be TV tapings (or who’s paying for that flight.) One of the other people who tried out and didn’t win was Mentallo, who wrestled in CMLL in 2008 and briefly was part of Lucha Libre USA.
