1) Fulgor I b Seiya
2) Imposible & Picudo Jr. b Ángel Del Amor & Mr. Magia (2013)
Mr. Magia is said to be making his debut, so not the one from last year.
3) Centvrión, Dinamic Black, Golden Magic b Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro [super libre]
Centvrion hurt his knee in the second fall to a hospital. 911 pulled Dinamic’s mask again, but Dinamic rolled him up anyway for the win. Dinamic wants a shot at 911′s Rey del Ring.
4) Decnnis, Hijo de Máscara Año 2000, Scorpio Jr. b Chico Che, Pantera, Veneno
Guapito fouled Veneno and Scorpio pinned him for the win.
5) Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Pirata Morgan, Pirata Morgan Jr. b Eterno, Súper Nova, X-Fly [IWRG IC TRIOS]
Piratas took 1/3, when Super Nova twice hit Eterno with dives by mistake. Pirata submitted X-Fly for the win. Piratas’s second defense.

Last Thursday’s show was taped for AYM/LAS. This week’s Thursday show was not taped at all.

AAA quietly has a taping today in Leon. It’s been understandable lost in the TripleMania build up, because it’s a show apparently being taped before AAA’s biggest show of the year to air after. Not much can happen, though a lot of the major people from the TripleMania show will be on this one. Perro & Cibernetico are the exceptions, but all three guys in the heavyweight championship picture and many of those battling for the tag team championship are on this show. The scheduled main event is Chessman, Texano, and Villano IV vs Canek, Mesias and La Parka, which is a much odder set off teams than when this show was first announced. Canek is a rudo on TripleMania teaming with V4 but facing him here. Mesias also may be a rudo by the end of TripleMania. Chessman and Texano are definitely not friends too, but how much AAA of that wants to play out is questionable.

Electroshock & Heavy Metal take on Mascara Ano 2000 Jr. & Silver King in the semimain, with another Secta vs Perros del Mal encounter in the fourth match. Steve Pain makes his AAA TV debut teaming with Carta Brava & Eterno against Angelico, Drago and Jack Evans, and the second match continues the Atomic Boy vs Apache feud in a mixed trios. There’s an opener, but the participants have not been listed (and I’d guess it’s local guys given they’re announcing Eterno in a match.)

The 2nd & the 3rd matches seem like the sort of matches which would air on Fusion, which would make this only a single week of TV for AAA Sin Limite. The problem with that is AAA hasn’t announced any tapings post TripleMania, and would need to be taping next weekend if Leon is going to last only one week. (Maybe TripleMania will air on TV after all?)

Cibernetico, Perro Aguayo Jr., Flamita, Pentagon Jr., Jennifer Blake and others are in Tijuana tonight, part of a The Crash show. Cibernetico and Perro Aguayo have a singles match two days before their hair match, and others are involved in a cruiserweight title tournament.

CMLL’s Arena Mexico show’s main event pushes the perennial Ultimo Guerrero vs Atlantis and La Sombra vs Volador Jr. feuds, with the odd ball combination of Titan and Pierroth rounding out the trios. Many of the guys who’ve made recent hair match challenges are bunched together in the semifiinal, so that should end with even more challenges. Dragon Rojo vs Rey Cometa is the lightning match, back for one week with no En Busca de un Idolo singles matches. That tournament continues with a Negro Casas, Stuka, Valiente vs Virus, Vangelis, Fuego. (I may not be able to record that; this would be a good week to message me when the live stream turns up.) NJPW’s Bushi debuts here in a good looking tercera, but everything is probably going shorter than usual with six trios and one singles match tonight.

R de Rudo, Estrellas del Ring and MedioTiempo have stories about AAA’s annual pilgrimage parade. A lot the same as every year, though it looks like they got COMEX to sponsor it this year. As usual, there’s mystery people in big group picture – who’s the guy in the Tinieblas style mask?

Frequent retiree Vampiro says he’s back full time and signed a five year deal. Riiiiiiiight. I’ve been concerned on Chessman’s behalf for a while about how AAA keeps calling him Vampire Killer and even though I doubt any five year deal in lucha libre, this fits with that concern. I’d recommend Chessman not climb up any tall objects or set up any tables on Sunday.

La Lucha se la Hace, the SLP based lucha show I’ve been posting for the last few months, will now start airing on Mexicanal Sundays at 5pm central. The quality of the webstream has been pretty poor, so this might be much improved if it airs as scheduled. (Which reminds me, the GALLI show never aired on either of the two announced times.)

Rompe Huesos looks back at other TripleMania hair match.

Kcidis has a drawing of Fuerza and Juventud Guerrera for Father’s Day. Fuerza is smiling, which seems totally unlike him unless Octagon is slumped on the ground nearby.

A press release on TripleMania’s iPPV notes 26% of their website traffic comes from other countries.

Sadica wants a title match with LLF champ Angelica.

Local luchadors were honored in Arena Coliseo Mexicali.

Estrellita champion, Oro/Casas, Fuerza Guerrera vs Black Terry, CMLL bodybuilding

CMLL (TUE) 11/27/2012 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [Fuego en el Ring]
1) Infierno & Thunder Boy b Black Metal & Virgo
2) Esfinge & Smaker b Espectrum & Ráfaga
3) Espanto Jr., Hijo del Signo, Hooligan b Ángel Azteca Jr., Magnus, Pegasso
Espanto Jr.’s GDL debut
4) Estrellita b Princesa Blanca [MEX WOMEN]
Princesa Blanca came in as champion. Pegasso and Hijo del Signo were seconds. Estrellita surprised Blanca and pinned her in the first fall, Blanca won the second, Estrellita won the third with the Star Cross to win the championship. Estrellita celebrated big.
5) Ángel de Oro, La Sombra, Titán DQ Dragón Rojo Jr., Negro Casas, Psicosis
Negro Casas fouled Angel de Oro.

Estrellita’s been wrestling regularly since at least 2000, and this is her first championship win of any kind. (She’s not been in CMLL a lot of that time.) This ended Blanca’s near four year change; her title matches were good, but not especially frequent. Blanca gave Estrellita credit for being better on this night but also blamed a knee injury. Estrellita mentioned her recent injury absence wasn’t just due to the cut on her hand, but also an ankle injury. She spent her time out watching Blanca footage to look for a way to defeat her. Both talked about doing a hair vs hair match.

IWRG (THU) 11/29/2012 Arena Naucalpan [Black Terry Jr. (flickr), Estrellas del Ring]
1) Galaxie b Epidemia
Another spelling for Galaxy.
2) Dinamic Black & La Cobra b Alan Extreme & Eita
3) el Ángel b Eterno [IWRG IC MIDDLE]
Angel kept the title
4) Bestia 666, Damián 666, Fuerza Guerrera b Dr. Cerebro, Pantera, Veneno
666s were in their Xolo jerseys. Black Terry hit the ring post match to argue with Fuerza, probably about the last FILL show. Fresero Jr., in jeans and a jersey shirt, worked as a referee for this show and separated the two.
5) Black Terry, Negro Navarro, Pirata Morgan b Solar I, Super Astro, Ultraman [super libre]
remach from the previous week. Rudos took 2/3, Navarro pinning Solar. Fuerza hit the ring post match to challenge Terry to a singles match, and he accepted

Angel vs Eterno is up in three parts already.

Fresero Jr.’s father was a referee for AAA. IWRG only seems to have two referees, and it’s not clear if this a change of occupation or an emergency fill in situation. He should still make it rain as a referee.

CMLL held it’s annual bodybuilding contest yesterday.

Minis
1) Stukita – mini who has still yet to debut
2) Pequeno Olimpico
3) Pequeno Halcon – was very unhappy about finishing third and threw his trophy into an empty section of seats. Believed to be suspended for that, though he hasn’t been on cards for a couple weeks already.

Beginners (more of a weight distinction than a training one)
1) Flyer – Volador Jr’s nephew
2) Akuma
3) Super Halcon Jr.

Intermediate
1) Sensei
2) Guerrero Maya
3) Camorra

Advanced
1) La Sombra
2) Valiente
3) Tama Tonga

Women
1) Dark Angel – won for the seventh straight year, every year they’ve run this contest
2) Dalys la Caribena – second for the fourth straight year
3) Isis

The winners all came back for a final contest, and Sensei won that to become Mr. CMLL Absoluto. There was also an apparently unofficial Student group for those enrolled in CML classes. Aioria, who I’ve never heard of prior won. Second place went to Relampago, formerly of AAA and currently in IWRG, with IWRG opening match wrestler Epidemia finishing third.

Tonight’s the first half of Copa Junior. It’s a CMLL random tournament that doesn’t mean anything, but they like to spread out the wins as thinly as possible. Maybe someone who’s been near the top but hasn’t had a big win this year – Mephisto or Mascara Dorada? – will advance.

Rey Cometa either has a busy night or is missing a match tonight. He’s scheduled to main event a show in Queretaro, then wrestle in the tercera in Arena Mexico. I think it’s physically impossible to work both – there’s a 3 hour different start time, but more than 2 hours away from each other – so expect a sub tonight in CMLL.

AAA had a press conference for the 2012 Quien Pinta Por La Corona contest final. They hyped major surprises, then just tweeted out photos of people there. Maybe the major surprise is cameraphones.

LLF’s Perla Negra hurt her wrist, so tonight’s planned mask vs mask match with Lady Puma is off. LLF’s last show of the year is next week and Negra won’t be ready by then either, so the match is postponed indefinitely. The replacement match is Lady Puma versus a mystery woman.

Rob has the top 5 spots of the week.

stuff going on Sunday

(all times Central)
4pm CHIKARA iPPV (I ordered weeks ago without realizing I had other things to watch, oops – I can watch it later, it’ll work out)
4pm CMLL on EstrellaTV (which I usually just half pay attention to)
5pm CMLL on Terra with Terribile vs Sombra for the Heavyweight title.
(5pm Noche de Coliseo, though it seems in repeats)
6pm AAA Guerra de Titanes (time on the poster, maybe not so much)
6:3pm IWRG Prison Fatal

So. The plan is for a chat/live results this week, starting at 5pm and running until I have to stop. We’ll be talking the CMLL show, the AAA show and even the IWRG one if they continue sending out live results. Only the CMLL on Terra show will be available on the internet, so you may be very bored after 7:30pm. It’ll be a fun time until then!

By the way, tickets seem to be selling decently well for Guerra de Titanes. The closest ticket I could get on Ticketmaster was for the fourth ring around the building.

Lineup

CMLL (MON) 12/03/2012 Arena Puebla
1) Asturiano & Black Tiger vs Espiritu Maligno & King Jaguar
2) Astral vs Demus 3:16 [lightning]
3) Camaleón, Soberano Jr., Starman vs Bobby Zavala, Disturbio, Ramstein
4) Fuego, Pegasso, Stigma vs Bronco, Hijo del Signo, Nitro
5) Ángel de Oro, Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr. vs Euforia, Niebla Roja, Tiger
6) Atlantis, Marco Corleone, Máximo vs Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas, Último Guerrero

Bronco! Giant goofy horse might actually be back. The best part is one more guy who can prevent the Cancerberos and Tuareg from accidentally being put on the same team.

Astral and Demus could set up a title rematch.

Comando Negro wins again, Silueta to Japan

Nothing new on Perro. I always figure that’s good news – really bad news travels fast.

(photo by Black Terry Jr.)

IWRG (SUN) 04/10/2011 Arena Naucalpan [Mi Lucha Libre, Estrellas del Ring, Black Terry Jr. (flickr)]
1) Alan Extreme b Tonatiuh
Straight falls for Alan.

Turbo got bumped down a match, replacing Dinamic Black.
3) Chico Che, Gato Eveready, Relampago, Trauma II b Avisman, Destroyer, Dinamic Black, El Hijo del Diablo
No Gringo Loco, again. Dinamic Black drew replacement duty. Freelance & Turbo were replaced by Relampago (AAA) & Gato Eveready.
4) Comando Negro b Eterno [IWRG IC Light]
Champ took the first, Eterno took the second via Spanish Fly, Comando Negro clinched the defense with a reverse campana.
5) La Parka Jr., Multifacético, Trauma I b Masada, Máscara Año 2000 Jr., Último Gladiador
Mascara Jr., back from injury, could not get along with Ultimo Gladiador.

Black Terry Jr. has video of the title match: part 1, part 2, part 3

CMLL (SUN) 04/10/2011 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [Fuego en el Ring]
1) Javier Cruz Jr. b Templario
2) Drago & Exterminador b Hierro & Virgo
Drago replaced Malefico

5) Felino, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas b Máscara Dorada, Rush, Toscano
Rudos took falls 1 and 3 to take it.

Mr. Niebla did show.

Fuego en el Ring says Silueta from Guadalajara will also be heading to Japan for three months. She’s surely going to be training in the same promotion as Seuxis, kind of surprising they didn’t mention it at the press conference.

Luchas2000 #565 has Sin Cara and WrestleMania.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.
