CMLL (MON) 02/18/2013 Arena Puebla [Porra Fresa]
1) Centauro de Fuego & Siki Ozama Jr. b Dinámikoo & Tigre Rojo Jr.
Tiger Rojo Jr. replaced Milenium. Rudos took 2/3, Osama giving Rojo a big move in the third to set up the win. Good match.
2) Artillero & Blue Center b Asturiano & Bengala
Rudos took 2/3. Center’s debut on the rudo side and still seemed getting used to it. He and Bengala exchanged pins on every fall, but there was no other tease of a feud.
3) Astral b Pequeño Olímpico [lightning]
Astral won via casita and challenged for a title shot. Olimpico immediately accepts.
4) Cancerbero, Raziel, Virus b Magnus, Starman, Stigma
Rudos took 1/3 in a good match, though the two man submission on Magnus & Stigma took a while to put figure out.
5) Blue Panther, Shocker, Stuka Jr. b Misterioso Jr., Morphosis, Olímpico
Misterioso replaced Felino. Tecnicos took 1/3. Stuka was the most effective tecnico but Shocker was the most popular.
6) La Máscara, La Sombra, Mistico DQ Kráneo, Psicosis, Volador Jr.
Mistico’s first match back since he injured his shoulder in January. Volador started the match by attacking Sombra, but switched to ripping up Mistico’s mask. Tecnicos took 2/3, Psicosis fouling Mistico. Volador ripped off Mistico’s mask after the match.

Mistico sounded like he was in normal (healthy) shape.

CMLL (TUE) 02/19/2013 Arena Mexico [CMLL, Yahoo! Deportes]
1) Oro Jr. & Robin b Akuma & Espanto Jr.
Tecnicos took 2/3.

Tecnicos took 1/3.
4) Tiger b Diamante [lightning]
Tiger won in 4:57.
5) Ángel de Oro, Atlantis, Máximo b Dragón Rojo Jr., Mephisto, Pólvora
Tecnicos took 2/3.
6) Blue Panther, Diamante Azul, Super Porky b Felino, Negro Casas, Rey Escorpión

Add Hijo del Signo to Virus, Disturbio and Bobby Zavala in the list of people who suddenly have a problem with a Metalico. That sounds like a cage match.

CMLL (TUE) 02/19/2013 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [@acogdl]

Two straight DQs to end the show.

R de Rudo says they interviews Vaquerita about joining CMLL, which will go up later.

The Brazos show seems to have sold out Arena Neza, or at least come close. La Mascara & Maximo won the tag team tournament over the Junior Dinamtias with a little help from Psycho Clown. El Brazo and Psycho Clown were prevented from working in matches on the shows because they otherwise used CMLL shows, but they both got in the ring at points in the show. Brazo Celestial won the cibernetico, and the team of Canek, Brazo deOro, Brazo de Plata, Solar won the Toreo de Cuatro Caminos where everyone looked very old.

Skayde and Sergio Romo beat Rey Hechicero and Diluvio Negro II in Arena Coliseo Monterrey. The XMW trios match in the semifinal got money thrown in the ring.

Flamita won the DTU Alto Impacto title last night from Eita in a multi-man match. Joe Lider also won his title match. There’s a photo album up but no recap.

Sexi Star confirmed she vacated the Reina de Reinas title on Facebook. Sexi says she’s a winner, she’s the best, she’ll get the belt back at some time, but does not say why she’s actually doing this. She does imply she might reveal this down the road.

It turns out the new Black Spirit is – the old Black Spirit! Hijo de LA Park has decided to stop using his father’s name and just try to succeed on his own merits. (At least in Monterrey, he’s still being announced as “Hijo de LA Park” as a nickname.) Black Spirit, who used that name from 2008 to 2010, is also a new dad.

Speaking of vacant titles, this week’s Arena Coliseo Reynosa show lists an Extreme Tiger vs Rey Astral match for “the vacant (Mexican) National Cruiserweight Championship.”  The most recent record for that title was Karis La Momia – the future La Parka AAA – winning the title from Blue Demon Jr. in 1996. AAA has occasionally credited La Parka with the championship but never did anything with it, even back when they were still using the national titles. A match for a vacant title would make sense, and indy Extreme Tiger defending the title around Mexico is not the worst idea, but I don’t know that there’s anything to this. I’d expect someone will be using a random title belt and pretending it’s a national title.
