12/27-28 lucha times

box. It’s after the jump too.

== AAA ==

Not sure. The Christmas show they did this past week covered everyting thru TripleMania, and there’s no real way to do another show without covering the yet-to-be-aired Guerra de Titans. Maybe back to normal and Tuxtla Guiterrez part 1? Dunno.

== Lucha Underground ==

Off until January 7th. Episode info/preview should roll out Saturday morning.

== CMLL ==

FOX2: Top 3 again: Cavernario/Dragon Rojo, Ingobernables vs Euforia/Thunder/UG, Rey vs Volador in the main event trios

Azteca: a mostly boring show. Valiente/Cavernario

52MX: Atlantis, Sombra, Marco vs Rey, Shocker, Terrible plus Felino, Niebla, UG vs Gallo, Stuka Jr., Titan and Zeuxis/Sugehit lightning match, following on the cibernetico they didn’t show. You know, they could build that by showing a clip of that finish (would take about 30 seconds) or interviews from one or both women (same), and there’s no chance that’s happening. None at all.

Claro: A bleh card with Fuego vs Polvora. Best match from last week probably won’t air.

C3: Main event oa Atlantis, Marco, Maximo vs Felino, Kraneo, Terrible. The midcard feud is on, but this show joins the others in December doldrums now.

TVC Deportes (Puebla): no idea if/when this will air, or if the stream will still be upw hen it does, but they may be onto the Attantis/Shocker main event.

Terra Sunday: The only tecnico main eventers left standing – Maximo Valiente, and Volador – take on Niebla, Casas and Terrible this time.

== IWRG ==

IWRG (LAS/AYM): Well, it doesn’t appear they’re running this Sunday for whatever reason, so it’s a pretty good bet the X-Mas day show will air. Tag team tournament and some other stuff. Read the rest of this entry »

Mephisto cheats Mascara Dorada in Guadalajara, Dragon Rojo interview

CMLL (TUE) 12/23/2014 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [ACG Facebook (1), ACG Facebook (2), ACG Facebook (3), Martes de Glamour]
1) Mr. Trueno & Rey Trueno b Reycko & Virgo
2) Demus 3:16, Mercurio, Pierrothito b Astral, Meteoro, Último Dragoncito
Demus Driver on Astral
3) Hombre sin Nombre, Pierroth, Sagrado b Esfinge, Gallo, Tritón
Sagrado beat Esfinge

Aguila beat Titan.
5) La Máscara, Máscara Dorada, Valiente b Ephesto, Mephisto, Thunder
Mephisto stole Mascara Dorada’s mask and pinned him.

Dragon Rojo talked to his hometown El Siglo de Torreon about his current career. He’s pushing for next year’s Anniversary main event to be himself vs Rey Escorpion vs Polvora in a three way apuesta match. Overall, he feels CMLL is only 25% known stars but they have a lot of young talent so the promotional will take off in a few years when they young guys become stars.

SuperLuchas has a discussion about dives from high places after Astro Rey’s latest.

Tuesday Mexico results, lineups

 

photo by Alexis Salazar/CMLL

CMLL (TUE) 12/23/2014 Arena México
1) Bengala & Robin b Apocalipsis & Camorra
2) Artillero, Canelo Casas, Súper Comando b Leono, Magnus, Sensei
3) Soberano Jr., Starman, Stigma DQ Cholo, Nitro, Raziel
Straight falls, Cholo taking Soberano’s mask.
4) Marcela b Dalys [lightning]  (posted by VideosOficialesCMLL)
Dalys replaced Zeuxis late Monday. Marcela won with the top rope double stomp in 9:00
5) Fuego, Rey Cometa, Super Porky DQ Morphosis, Olímpico, Tiger
Tecnicos took 2/3, with Porky faking a foul in the third.
6) Atlantis, Marco Corleone, Máximo b Felino, Kráneo, Terrible
Tecnicos took 2/3.

I assume the Nuevo Valor in the main event was Mije.

There are no shows today. IWRG’s usual Wednesday show is a Thursday show the next two weeks. Not many other places run Wednesday, but no one runs Christmas Eve and everyone runs Christmas Day.

CMLL Informa is still on. JCR was pushing part 1 of a two weeks Year in Review on that. Tercera Caida does not appear to be on the TVC Deportes schedule at the moment.

Sunday’s Deportivo Lee Roy show will be the last for promoter Jose Acero (Lee Roy Jr.); he’s retiring after twenty years due to health issues.

Ricochet was announced as working in the UK on 02/15 (Sunday), which suggests Lucha Underground won’t be taping that weekend.

AAA is doing fan polls to end the year. The first is luchadora of the year, currently being led by Jennifer Blake.

Rob has a music video of 08/26/2014 CMLL.

LV reviews Sunday’s Arena Mexico show.

Segunda Caida reviews Brazo de Plata, Héctor Garza, La Sombra vs Felino, Negro Casas, Último Guerrero

#1 on CMLL’s top 10 is Sabados de Coliseo. Cholo & Ramstein finally crack the list at 10.

Lineups

CMLL (TUE) 12/30/2014 Arena México
1) Acero & Fantasy vs Mercurio & Pequeño Universo 2000
2) Sensei, Soberano Jr., Star Jr. vs Cholo, Inquisidor, Ramstein
3) Hombre Bala Jr., Stigma, Súper Halcón Jr. vs Arkángel de la Muerte, Hijo del Signo, Nitro
4) Pegasso vs Sangre Azteca [lightning]
5) Blue Panther, La Máscara, Super Porky vs Morphosis, Niebla Roja, Olímpico
6) Máximo, Valiente, Volador Jr. vs Felino, Negro Casas, Rey Bucanero

Rey Bucanero/Volador in the main event, but also the issue of Felino and Rey Bucanero teaming. Maximo, Valiente and Volador are main eventing three straight shows as a team.

Cholo/Ramstein vs Soberano/Star in the segunda.

CMLL (TUE) 12/30/2014 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Brillante & Metatrón vs Artillero & Súper Comando
2) Omar Brunetti, Starman, Tritón vs Maléfico, Puma, Tiger
3) La Vaquerita, Lluvia, Marcela vs Amapola, Tiffany, Zeuxis
4) Guerrero Maya Jr., Rey Cometa, The Panther vs Bárbaro Cavernario, Hechicero, Virus
5) Ángel de Oro, Atlantis, Titán vs Mr. Águila, Mr. Niebla, Shocker
6) Máscara Dorada vs Mephisto

Main event is a rare Mascara Dorada singles match in 2014; this is the only one in a CMLL ring. He’s had one for FantasticaMania and one for ChilangaMask and that’s it. It feels like a wasted year for Dorada, but he’s put on shows against Mephisto in the past. The last time Hechicero & Virus teamed up here, epic things happened and they’ve got four other good wrestlers to work with.

IWRG (THU) 01/01/2015 Arena Naucalpan
***IWRG 18th Anniversary***
1) Alfa & Sky Ángel vs Araña de Plata & Hip Hop Man
2) Diva Salvaje, Estrella Divina, Miss Gaviota vs Douki, Imposible, Tony Rivera
3) Leo, Mike, Rafy, Teelo vs Apolo Estrada Jr., El Hijo del Diablo, Liderk, Oficial AK47
4) Canis Lupus, Eterno, X-Fly vs Chicano, Danny Casas, Hijo de Máscara Año 2000
5) Hijo De Dos Caras, Máscara Sagrada, Pantera I vs Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Pirata Morgan, Pirata Morgan Jr.

that’s a boring anniversary card – a main event rematch of a match that hasn’t happened yet.

Dragon Rojo retains his title, Lucha Underground signing

CMLL (MON) 12/22/2014 Arena Puebla [Periodico Enfoque, Periodico Enfoque (fotos)]
1) Lestat, Soberano Jr., Star Jr. b Disturbio, Espíritu Maligno, Toro Bill Jr.
2) Amapola, La Comandante, Zeuxis b La Vaquerita, Lluvia, Princesa Sugehit
Estrellita was announced, but announced as still injured and replaced by Princesa Sugehit. Zeuxis had a knee injury during the match.
3) Kráneo, Morphosis, Olímpico b Rey Cometa, Stigma, Valiente
Stigma replaced Titan.
4) Dragón Rojo Jr. © b Pólvora [CMLL MIDDLE]
Seconds were Disturbio & Stigma. Dragon Rojo won via arm submission. Dragon Rojo’s 9th defense.
5) Atlantis, Marco Corleone, Super Porky DQ Mr. Niebla, Rey Bucanero, Terrible
Niebla fouled Atlantis.

Attendance looks randomly better than usual. Niebla has 6 weeks of feuds he’s doing all at once, for some reason. He does not seem like a guy to build half the shows around.

That knee injury must be serious – the preview now has Dalys facing Marcela in the lightning match.

Today’s CMLL show in Arena Mexico has Terrible, Felino and Kraneo versus Marco Corleone, Maximo and Atlantis, who seems to be working everywhere right now. CMLL’s preview pushes Marco going for the gold versus Terrible. Soberano and Cholo face off in the tercera trios match; CMLL’s got an article out pushing that tag feud, with the tecnicos demanding a mask match. If that’s going to happen on 01/06, which would make the most sense, tonight’s is the optimum point to make it official and give it couple weeks of hype.

Guadalajara has Mascara, Mascara Dorada and Valiente vs Ephesto, Mephsito and Thunder. Thunder’s been facing Dorada & Valiente a lot lately.

AYM, in their infinite wisdom, cut out from Traumas/Navarro/Terry before the post match, but +LuchaTV has it up.  (AYM did manage to show the logo for about 2 minutes straight at least twice during the show.) Trauma II has Fenix level of emotions about this match.

Yahoo! Deportes confirms Satanico is one of the people now in charge in Arena Coliseo Guadalajara. I missed this, but last week’s Fuego en el Ring actually already had this: someone new named Daniel Cruz is the guy in charge in Guadalajara, and Satanico and Magnum are teaching at the school.

Jeff Cobb told an indy crowd that he was signing with Lucha Underground. He was one of the names on the list from last week’s WON. Cobb was born in Hawaii and is of Guam nationality; he was their flag bearer at the 2004 Summer Olympics when he was an amateur. He’s been wrestling Hawaii and on the west coast. I don’t think I’ve seen any of his matches, but Cobb was someone Meltzer was previously pushing as someone WWE should pick up for their developmental group except he’s older than they’d like (he’s 32 now.) There are a few of his matches and those top 10 moves videos on YouTube; Cobb’s nicknamed “Mr. Athletic” and the name seems accurate. He’ll fit in.

LuchaWorld has this week’s Poster-Mania and KrisZ’s news update.

Voices of Wrestling has it’s second lucha libre focused Suicida Slate reviews.

Keira vs Orion is the first first match for ChilangaMask’s Puebla show on 01/17.

Dollar was honored for 20 years of wrestling in Gimnasio Gloria.

DJ Spectro looks back at 2014.

Rey Hechicero and Trauma II face off in Salon Citalali on 01/03. Note that fill in Sky Star Arceus is teaming with Rayo Star, which means Sky Man is still not able to return into 2015.

Lineups

indy (SUN) 12/28/2014 Arena Coliseo Monterrey
1) ? vs ??
2) ? vs ??
3) ? vs ??
4) ? vs ??
5) El Divo © vs Potro Jr. [FILL MIDDLE]
6) Gato Fantasma vs Desafio [mask, hair]
7) Dr. Wagner Jr. vs Atlantis vs LA Park

The promoters have been pushing the LA Park vs Atlantis fight from this past Sunday pretty hard to a singles match, so it’s a three way instead. I dunno. At another time, Atlantis vs LA Park in a mask match might happen, but it’s hard to believe LA Park (or Wagner) will ever get the payoff they want.

12/20-21 lucha videos

C3 is in glorious 480p vision, maybe for one week only.

Puebla feed came back on Monday! Puebla actually aired on Sunday, so that did no one any good. I’ll record it on the odd chance it turns up later.

La Lucha se La Hace appears to be repeating from the beginning again, so I’m not going to bother with them. The local station actually airs new episodes and I’ve got no idea why Mexicanal stopped picking them up (0r why they keep airing repeats which are years old at this point.)

AAA was part one of a Year In Review so there wasn’t much new content. They got all the way thru TripleMania, so it seems to be only a two week run of repeats before getting back to Tuxtla.

Edit: Leyendas Inmortales was added about 9:40AM.
