CMLL (TUE) 10/23/2012 Arena Mexico [CMLL]
1) Apocalipsis & Guerrero Negro Jr. b Genesis & Soberano Jr.
2) Cancerbero, Hijo del Signo, Raziel b Bengala, Metálico, Sensei
3) Pierrothito b Último Dragoncito [lightning]
Pierrothito won in 7:12.
4) Fuego, Sagrado, Stuka Jr. b Namajague, Shigeo Okumura, Vangelis
Tecnicos took 2/3, Sagrado pinning Okumura.
5) Niebla Roja, Terrible, Tiger b Ángel de Oro, Diamante, Hijo del Fantasma
Niebla Roja replaced Rey Bucanero, who suffered a knee injury Monday in Puebla. Rudos took 2/3. Angel de Oro hurt his knee, and Niebla Roja seemed very concerned.
6) Atlantis, Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr. b Black Warrior, Mr. Águila, Volador Jr.
Delta wore pink in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month. Euforia started the match for the rudos, but was replaced by a late arriving Mr. Aguila (so late he didn’t have his hair up or his facepaint on.) Tecnicos won and challenged for a rematch.

CMLL (TUE) 10/23/2012 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [Fuego en el Ring]
1) Virgo b Thunder Boy
2) Metatrón & Smaker b Exterminador & Ráfaga
Smaker replaced Black Metal, Rafaga replaced Malefico.
3) Pequeño Olímpico, Pequeño Violencia, Pequeño Warrior b Aereo, Pequeño Halcón, Shockercito
4) Ephesto, Mephisto, Tama Tonga b La Sombra, Marco Corleone, Rush
Tonga pinned Sombra in the first/third.
5) Máximo DQ Averno
Averno got help from Mephisto and Ephesto. Maximo snuck in a small package, and the rudos ran in for the DQ. Rush & Marco tried to make the save but were laid out, leading to a trios title match next week.

Halloween wrote he suffered one broken rib and two fractured ribs in Sunday’s title match with Ricky Marvin & Super Crazy. He does not know when he will be able to return. (Website suggests a painful 6-10 week recovery, which means he’s probably done for the year.) We can only hope this doesn’t hurt his chances with Mari Apache.

R de Rudo caught up to Damian 666 to ask what was with Mr. Aguila teaming with him last weekend. He explained it as X-Fly missing a flight back from Ciudad Juarez and Aguila filling in as a one time replacement. Damian’s off to Panama this weekend.

Heddi Karaoui is out of Thursday’s IWRG IC Middleweight Championship match. Relampago legdropped him on the head on Thursday, concussion Karaoui and taking him out of one of his biggest matches since coming to Mexico. Oficial AK47 takes Karaoui’s spot. That’s much more interesting match to me, but it’s unfortunate for Karaoui.

Kaiser Sports has this message posted on top of their website:

A nuestros queridos amigos, seguidores y lectores: Ante las nuevas disposiciones del CMLL que limitan nuestro libre ejercicio profesional, desde este 23 de octubre ya no podremos ofrecer información al respecto, pues consideramos que valores como la lealtad y el respeto deben ser mutuos, no solo unilateralmente, Gracias.

CMLL is implementing some new policy “that limits our profession” so they’ll no longer be covering CMLL “because we feel values of loyalty and respect must be mutual.” Harsh. I wonder what “limits our profession” means? CMLL demanding approval over anything posted?

Whatever it is, this is really disappointing. It’s another excellent source of CMLL news run off by CMLL. Many times, like the recent Guerrero break up, the Kaiser Sports interviews have done a better job of explaining and getting over CMLL’s storylines than CMLL’s done on their own. CMLL is still covered in papers and some of the magazines, but most of the coverage is frequently dry lineups and results, nothing that would cause someone to be interested in CMLL if they weren’t already. It’s also usually the same article just reprinted as copy everywhere; this is a source of original material that’s just going to be gone and not replaced. CMLL and Kaiser Sports had a falling out about a year ago that was eventually resolved, hopefully that’ll just repeat.

It also has some slight international implications, since they were supplying NJPW with interview photos when their guys would come to CMLL (Alexis sends the match/press conference ones.)

Hijo de LA Park and Hijo de Dr. Wagner Jr. will be in the Castle of Terror after all.

LuchaWorld has Alfredo on this week’s 52MX show.

Fun show. Main event should be good, semimain should be a fun romp for the tecnicos, and pequeno estrellas all flying around in the opener. (Also, Metatron.) Like the full sized version, this is a repeat from doing the tournament in May in Arena Mexico. Even CMLL can’t keep track of it’s tournaments.

Hijo de Pirata Morgan wins IWRG Junior championship, Hector Garza in Monterrey, Mexicools vs MexiPowers

IWRG (SUN) 10/21/2012 Arena Naucalpan [IWRG]
1) Epidemia & Matrix Jr. b Astro Rey Jr. & Dragón Celestial
straight falls
2) Alan Extreme, Carta Brava Jr., Comando Negro b Dinamic Black, Golden Magic, Saruman
Money throw in the ring. Alan & Carta trapped Saurman & Dinamic in a star, and Comando Negro dropped Golden Magic on his head with a Comando Storm in the middle. Money thrown in the ring!
3) Eterno, Heddi Karaoui, Violencia Jr. b Relampago, Trauma I, Trauma II
In the opening mat exchange, Trauma II choked Eterno out. Doctors checked on Eterno while Trauma I submitted Violencia and Relampago legdropped Heddi Karaoui on the head, knocking him out. Karaoui was ruled unable to continue and Eterno was semi-conscious, so Violencia was left to fight 1 vs 3 in the third fall. Relampago dived on to Violencia in the second fall, hurting his knee and ending his night. Everyone checked on him, and Eterno & Violencia beat the Traumas. In the third, Trauma II submitted Violencia, Eterno choked out Trauma II, Eterno beat Trauma II with the Eterno Clash for the win.
4) Cien Caras Jr., Scorpio Jr., Zumbido b el Ángel, Negro Navarro, Veneno
Rudos took 1/3. Scorpio & Zumbido are working as a team, but it’s Cien who beat Navarro and asked for a tag title match.
5) Hijo de Pirata Morgan b Hijo de Máscara Año 2000 [#1 Contenders, IWRG JUNIORS]
Single fall. Mascara missed a top rope splash, and Pirata won with Morgan Special.
6) Hijo de Pirata Morgan b Spartan Factor [IWRG JUNIORS]
Spartan Factor (and second Rayan) jumped Pirata (who had Scorpio as his second.) Spartan Factor won fall 1, Pirata stole the second fall, and Rayan accidentally smacked Factor with a chair to set up Pirata’s win. Pirata wins the title back.

This show airs tonight on AYM Sports starting at 9pm.

Hector Garza appeared on the Arena Coliseo Monterrey show (video in the link), talking about his health condition. Perro Aguayo Jr. interrupted, demanding Garza recover so Perro could take Garza’s hair in Monterrey.

Lineups

IWRG (THU) 10/25/2012 Arena Naucalpan
1) Araña de Plata & Astro Rey Jr. vs Matrix Jr. & Star Boy Jr.
2) Cerebro Negro, La Cobra, Relampago vs Carta Brava Jr., Star Boy, Yack
3) Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro vs Factor, Rayan, Spartan
4) el Ángel vs Heddi Karaoui [IWRG IC MIDDLE]
Angel is champion
5) Barba Roja, Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Pirata Morgan vs Negro Navarro, Trauma I, Trauma II

Title match subject to Karaoui being cleared, though I’d guess he probably will be. The people who typically comment on this site (including me!) are not fans of Karaoui’s wrestling, but the people who he works with and for seem to like it and a title change wouldn’t be a big surprise here.

UWE LEGEND (WED) 10/31/2012 Arena Lopez Mateos
1) Beda, Olimpus, Spider Boy vs Conde Bartok, Magia Negra, Violento
2) Cerebro Maligno, Herejía, Judas el Traidor, Rey Krimen vs Demencia Dorada, Dragosth, Gargola, Golden, Psicópata
3) Big Mama vs Taya Valkyire
4) Epitafio, Leviatham, Samael, Tormento vs Dowki, Hanaoka, Nihon Dragon, Samurai
5) Rocky Santana vs Iron Love [hair]
6) Juventud Guerrera, Psicosis, Super Crazy vs Extreme Tiger, Joe Lider, Último Gladiador
the former Mexicools face the former Mexican Powers

As you may recall, the Mexican Powers were intended to be a redo of the Mexicools in AAA, with Juvi playing Juvi (only better), a fake Super Crazy (Crazy Boy) and a fake Psicosis (Psicosis II). The three guys representing the group here were later injury/defection replacements who got in AAA at least partially due to their connection to Crazy Boy. Psicosis II is probably not available for that main event, but it still calls for some sort of Crazy Boy interference since the DTU Anniversary show is happening here as well.

Not sure if the El Samurai in the fourth is the ex-NJPW guy or a new Japanese guy.
