The debut episode of AAA Fusion is already on YouTube. The women’s match and the Bizarros vs Perros match aired. If the AAA Digital thing turns out to be interesting, I’ll do a post about it later.
The cast of El Luchador Season 2 was presented at Arena Mexico yesterday. The show starts a week from tomorrow. There’s a mention of Magnus challenging Dragon Lee to a mask vs mask match during the series. He’s a tecnico now, so either Magnus is changing his ways on the show or in CMLL soon. All the ‘secondary characters’ were there except Rey Bucanero’s wife or daughter, and since Rey Bucanero’s story arc is if he’ll get stay with his wife or get custody of his kid, that’s not very promising. In another, the director emphasis the need for continuity between seasons and is surprised at it’s success in other countries. The article says they’re already in talks for a third season. Rey Bucanero emphasizes the series showing the reality of their lives.
Dragon Rojo says he hopes to be the execution of foreigners in CMLL after already beating Devitt & Lyger. Rojo says nothing concrete is planned as far as a name for he and Escorpion or a third member (though Misterioso is suggested), just that they don’t want to be teaming with Ultimo Guerrero any more.
Tama Tonga arrived in Mexico yesterday, and said he plans on winning Leyenda de Azul, and focused on Sombra and Atlantis. Namajague & Okumura’s routine of meeting people at the airport and asking them to team with them to challenge for the trios titles continued here, though Tonga was non-committal. Tonga’s stay is said to be undetermined, but that usually means until a week or two before the next NJPW tour (11/20, so probably thru the 11/09 Friday show.)
Leon also arrived. She’s in Mexico just for a week, which may explain why her lightning match suddenly became a title match. Leon has dreamed of wrestling in Arena Mexico, and wants to win so she’ll be invited back. This is her first wrestling trip outside of Japan alone and not with other wrestlers, but she hopes she’ll get him safe and with her title.
Rob has his top 5 spots of the week.
LuchaWorld has this week’s PosterMania.
Monito has an idea to slightly change the Leyenda de Azul name. Actually, they should have a tournament where the winner gets Monito as his exclusive manager for two months, it’d be the most heated battle ever.

Poster sure looks like Horuz. I’d like to check him out, but it’s a 5pm show, right the same time as Terra, and I think I need to be around the luchablog HQ to see the mask match and report on Diamante Azul’s attempt to break Volador’s neck. But I’d definitely check this out another Sunday, so maybe you ought to?
CMLL (TUE) 10/16/2012 Arena Mexico

Three fall rematch! Volador has three singles matches in three days, two with Sombra. This is the second time that’s happened recently; whoever looks at the big picture is strange.
First Silueta match in Arena Mexico since May.
Reyes del Atlantida have almost got their rematch for the trios titles, except they’re fighting the wrong three Invasors.
