CMLL (SUN) 12/02/2012 Arena Coliseo [CMLL, CMLL GacetaYahoo! Deportes]
1) Camaleón & Soberano Jr. b Camorra & Guerrero Negro Jr.
Tecnicos took 1/3 in a poor match.
2) Höruz, Pegasso, Starman b Artillero, Disturbio, Hooligan
Horuz replaced Angel Azteca Jr., while Artillero filled in for Bobby Zavala. Tecnicos took 2/3.
3) Skándalo b Triton [lightning]
Triton missed his tornillo moonsault, but apparently was supposed to hit it because he ignored the miss and tried to cover Skandalo. Skandalo tripped Triton instead and covered him for the pin in 7:58
4) Ángel de Oro, Hijo del Fantasma, Stuka Jr. DQ Bobby Zavala, Cancerbero, Raziel
Zavala replaced Misterioso. Tecnicos took 1/3, the last when Raziel knocked Stuka off the top rope and the rudos decided to stomp him for an excessive violence DQ. They took Stuka’s mask for good measure.
5) Kráneo, Mr. Águila, Psicosis b Atlantis, Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr.
Atlantis team are the national trios champs. Non-title. Tecnicos took the first, but Kraneo destroyed Maya on a sit down piledriver on the second causing Maya to be strechered out. Rudos won a 3 on 2 final fall and challenged for the trios titles again.
6) Terrible b La Sombra [CMLL HEAVY]
Terrible is champion. Falls of 5:02, 2:15 and 10:35. Sombra won the first fall with a springboard moonsault after the first try at a the double moonsault seemed to wrong. Terrible won the second with a cavernaria. In a long third fall which included Sombra moonsault stomping Terrible low, Terrible won with his usual slaps/Schwein finish to keep the title. Good match.

I’ll have full IWRG and AAA results after the official ones go up, but you can see what I pieced together below.

A full recap of the Arena Lopez Mateos show hasn’t turned up yet. In the three way main event, LA Park won by foul to Dr. Wagner Jr. after Canek was earlier DQed for a foul. Earlier, Negro Navarro beat Solar for the FLLM Master championship. Attendance looked very strong for this show, one of the best Arena Lopez Mateos turn outs of the year.

Lucha Libre in Japan

12/02 NJPW: YOSHI-HASHI [O] & Jado b Diamante Azul [X] & Rush

Well, that’s embarrassing. Azul looked bad in the match, especially the finish. Japanese promotions will usually job out foreign wrestlers who come in and look bad, and Azul lost a lot and might have earned the results he got. Hopefully he’ll learn something from this.
