CMLL (SUN) 01/03 Arena Coliseo [Ovaciones (PDF)]
1) Cholo & Ramstein b Principe & Súper Camaleón
2) Dr. X, Hooligan, Nitro b Molotov, Sensei, Starman
3) Flash, Leono, Rush DQ Cancerbero, Raciel, Virus
4) Brazo de Plata, Shocker, Toscano b Dragon Rojo Jr., Ray Mendoza Jr., Rey Bucanero
5) Máscara Dorada b Felino

Apparently, Ovaciones PDF has been working for a while. Only found on a whim, wanting to know what the deal was with Dorada/Felino.

That match did take place (despite no mention of it except Felino mentioning in comedy skits on TV this week), with Dorada getting the clean headscissors win. Sunday’s ESTO and Ovaciones both had the lineup posted on CMLL.com (including the minis match, which was apparently pulled), so someone at CMLL screwed up here. We all get busy around the holidays.

Straight fall win for the tecnicos in the tercera. Virus fouled Rush in the second; understandable, but one does not want to get in a war with Rush. Nothing good can come of it.

Starman replaced Metalico, who was supposed to return to action here. Guess he still has abscess related issues.

IWRG (SUN) 01/03 Arena Naucalpan [Black Terry Jr.]
1) Dinamic Black b Comando Negro
2) Alan Extreme & Hijo del Signo b Gemelo Fantastico I & Gemelo Fantastico II
3) Fantasma de la Ópera, Maldito Jr., Samoth b Bushi, Eragon, Jack
4) Exodia, Hijo del Pantera, Ultramán Jr. b Barba Roja, Trauma I, Trauma II
5) Pantera, Scorpio Jr., Zatura b Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Máscara Año 2000, Veneno

Black Terry notes it was a night of injuries

  • Hijo del Signo’s nose was broken by one of the Gemelos.
  • Trauma was out of it after a springboard legdrop from Ultraman Jr.
  • Exodia was sitting, waiting to be kicked, when Barba Roja dropped a senton on his head instead. Exodia was knocked out.

Fantasma replaced Toxico (hmm.) Barba Roja took Pirata Morgan’s spot, but that looks more like a typo on the poster.

At Wrestle Kingdom IV, Averno & Ultimo Guerrero failed to win the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship. Taguchi pinned Averno, who’s now 0-2 in the Tokyo Dome. No Limit did pick up the IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Championship, and we’ll see if Naito hints at a defense when he’s back in town this week.

Box Y Lucha #2955 has the Three Wise Men on the cover. Inside, in the great tradition of New Year’s Resolution that won’t be kept, Vangelis says he wants to win back the Light Heavyweight title from Mistico.

Both Televisa Deportes and Ovaciones have recaps of CMLL’s 2009. Somewhat amazingly similar. (Perhaps that’s why no one had time to update Sunday’s lineup.)
