Dragon Lee/Mephisto, hated enemies Volador & La Mascara earn tag title match

CMLL (TUE) 10/06/2015 Arena México [CMLL]
1) Leono & Sensei vs Akuma & Cholo
2) Arkángel de la Muerte, Canelo Casas, Nitro b Magnus, Starman, Súper Halcón Jr.
3) Astral b Pequeño Violencia [lightning]
Astral won in 9:45
4) Reyna Isis, Tiffany, Zeuxis b Estrellita, La Vaquerita, Princesa Sugehit
5) Disturbio, Rey Bucanero, Terrible b Blue Panther, Esfinge, Rey Cometa
6) Dragon Lee, La Sombra, Titán DQ Boby Zavala, Mephisto, Último Guerrero
Sombra replaced Rush on Monday (which makes more sense based on last week’s finish.) Tecnicos took 2/3. Dragon Lee beat Mephisto in the second fall, Mephisto pulled Dragon Lee’s mask in the third. This set up a singles match next week.

Mephisto matches have not been as interesting the last few years, but he’s still a good guy for a crazy high flyer to face and no one is crazier than Dragon Lee. It could work.

I’m okay with CMLL not putting up the lightning match this week. I’m okay with CMLL not putting up most of this show.

AAA posted the UTDN (long) version of this week’s TV show, which the Cibernetico, Hijo del Fantasma, Texano Jr. versus La Parka, Monsther Clown, Murder Clown match. The show is listed as complete, so the three way tag from that show probably isn’t airing and they’ll be starting to air Heroes Inmortales this weekend after all.

CMLL Informa will have Ultimo Guerrero and Block B of the CMLL Universal tournament among others. There’s a good chance they’ll have Ultimo Guerrero on four straight weeks.

CMLL has an article on Lestat versus Molotov. I was there for the start of Sombra/Atlantis mask and totally didn’t believe they were actually going to have a mask match a month later. I almost was in the building for the start of this feud too – maybe Molotov turned while we were still buying tickets – and I wouldn’t believe they would have a mask match a few weeks later either. CMLL is increasingly strange.

CMLL will give discounts to fans who dress in thematic outfits for the Dia Los Muerte shows.

+LuchaTV has highlights of the Todo x el Todo main event from Monday. The building is too dark for me to tell if there was actually a decent crowd. Am.com.mx gives the attendance as 5,000. I’m skeptical of that number; we have capacity as 5,240 but they definitely cut off part of the arena for the entrance and the seats we could see weren’t full. The main event didn’t start until midnight, which is after everyone’s bed time and probably why the news reports about the show are only coming up today. Santo struck me as old much more than last we saw him.

No update on Guerrero Negro Junior. A columnist writes about Guerrero’s parents – his father was a wrestler for EMLL but his alcoholism hurt his career – and mentions Guerrero Negro Jr. had just opened a gym.

Atlatnis told Diario de Mexico that his retirement is not too far away, maybe just a couple years. Daniel Bryan better get his release quick. Atlantis also implies he has no interested in a retirement tour – one day, he’ll just finish a match, grab the mic, say “I’m retiring”, and then disappear completely. This is the same way I plan on going.

Diva Salvaje vs Demasiado vs Juana la Loca has been added to the 10/25 Coliseo Coacalco show.

Mr. Niebla will be on the 10/17 Cara Lucha show. That’s an odd combination of luchador and promotion, but he’ll probably bring some fans.

There’s a Mr. Aguila & Volador Jr. vs Rush & La Sombra tag match in El Paso on 10/24.

TuriLuchas is saying they’ll start running Saturday trips to Arena Coliseo. Arena Mexico is not hard to get to but Arena Coliseo is a bit harder; it’s definitely more expensive to go on the bus but that’s not a bad idea.

Hijo de Dos Caras is listed as wrestling on the 10/17 WXW (Germany) show for some reason. They’ve got a show the next day so he’s probably in for that too.

Fenix talks about his career, say he’d like to have a mask versus hair match with Mesias.

Segunda Caida reviews Shocker vs Hector Garza

Los Cholitas are headed to Madrid.


CMLL (TUE) 10/13/2015 Arena México
1) Flyer & Sensei vs Cholo & Espanto Jr.
2) Astral, Eléctrico, Fantasy vs Demus 3:16, Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Olímpico
3) Lluvia, Princesa Sugehit, Skadi vs La Seductora, Reyna Isis, Zeuxis
4) Delta, Fuego, Tritón vs Disturbio, Hechicero, Okumura
5) Rey Cometa, Super Porky, Titán vs Cavernario, Felino, Mr. Niebla
6) Dragon Lee vs Mephisto

The problem with Titan (and Cometa and Cavernario) moving up is they’re running into people who don’t work as well with them moving down. Fourth match should be good.

CMLL (TUE) 10/13/2015 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Explosivo & Metatrón vs Mr. Trueno & Rey Trueno
2) Gallo, Robin, Stigma vs Arkángel de la Muerte, Canelo Casas, Maléfico
3) Blue Panther Jr., Pegasso, Starman vs Misterioso Jr., Pierroth, Sagrado
4) Gran Guerrero, Kráneo, Último Guerrero vs Boby Zavala, Dragón Rojo Jr., Thunder
5) Negro Casas & Shocker © vs La Máscara & Volador Jr. [CMLL TAG]
Shocker & Negro Casas 8th defense, 7 against at least one member of Los Ingobernables.

It’s surprising anyone cares about the Ingobernables feuds given how poorly they’re used. Mascara and Volador will probably get along for most of the match and then fall apart by the end, as they have for two straight years go on.

Speaking of bad ideas CMLL can’t let go of, Thunder’s back. This is not a good card.

DTU (FRI) 10/30/2015 Coliseo Fraternidad, Veracruz, Veracruz
1) ?, ??, ??? vs ????, ?????, ??????
names too small to read
2) Erwin & Irving vs Masizito & Porrito
Irving & Erwin are Chiki Nerds
3) Flyer Boy, Junior, Perro Negro Jr. vs Kid Lobo, Kronos, Maremoto Jr.
4) Joven Maravilla & Lady Maravilla vs Abadon & Zuzu Divine and Principe Dorada and Gio El Malkriado
5) Jimmy, Kevin, Tony vs Aero Power, Anarquia, Hijo De Butire
6) Rocky Lobo vs Ángel del Misterio, Septimo Dragon, Lanzeloth, Chica Ye-Ye
7) Ángel o Demonio & Ovett vs Black Baby & Sepulutra
8) Cíclope & Miedo Extremo vs Black Fire & Pesadilla and Atila & Tiburon

First of the three show DTU tour; the others cards may be out by the time you read this. Whoever came up with “Erwin and Irving” deserves a gold star.

CMLL on Claro Sports: 2015-08-21 

Sky Team win

Recapped: 08/21/2015-09/03/0215

What happened? Boby Zavala won the En Busca de un Idolo (and was immediately vanished.) Sombra humiliated Atlantis. Demus and Shockercito continued their kinda-feud. I forgot to write most of this recap for some time. 

What was good? Main event was better as an angle than a match. I rated Zavala & Maya as good but not sure if that’ll hold up. The best match was probably the semifinal, but I didn’t write down any notes for it. 

Where can I watch? Most of it aired on Claro Sports, but I wasn’t able to record it. (Lesson: always capture full screen when possible.) The En Busca de un Idolo match is still on CMLL’s YouTube channel. The last two matches air on Lucha Azteca, and are in the September Week 1 playlist

Puebla and Guadalajara results, TXT returns, Guerrero Negro

CMLL (SUN) 10/04/2015 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [CMLL]
1) Black Sugar b Capitan Cobra
Capitan Cobra replaced Mascara de Oro.
2) Mercenario, Mr. Apolo, Mr. Brisa b Ángel Aéreo, Linterna, Rey Halcón
3) El Alteño, Explosivo, Star Black DQ Demonio Rojo, Gitano, Gran Kenut
Demonio Rojo came back in after being eliminated for the DQ.
4) Chik Tormenta DQ La Pantera
Pantera trapped Chik Tormenta’s arm in the ropes and kicked her until she was DQed. Tormenta challenged Pantera for her Universal Extremo championship (?)
5) El Divino, Frezzer, Metatrón b El Chakal, El Yaqui, Thunder Boy
The rudos had all sorts of problem. Chakal & Yaqui blamed Yaqui for the loss and attacked him, with the tecnicos making the save.
6) León Blanco, Nautilius, Omar Brunetti b Mr. Trueno, Ráfaga, Rey Trueno
Leon Blanco beat Rafaga

A usual Sunday show.

CMLL (MON) 10/05/2015 Arena Puebla [CMLL, El Popular]
1) Ares, Guerrero Espacial, Metálico b Meyer, Milenium, Robin
Rudos took 2/3. Milenium’s first match this year, Meyer’s first match since May.
2) Espanto Jr., Rey Apocalipsis, Toro Bill Jr. b Black Tiger, Rey Samuray, Soberano Jr.
Tecnicos took 2/3. Rey Apocalispis & Toro Bill were accompanied by La Adelita. Match fell apart (Espanto Jr. injuring himself, Rey Samuray messing up his ramp running springboard armdrag).
3) Dragon Lee, Lestat, Stigma b Kamaitachi, Molotov, Policeman
tecnicos took 2/3. Lestat beat Molotov and challenged him to a mask match. Molotov agreed and attacked Lestat. The match is happening next week.
4) Ephesto, Luciferno, Mephisto b Marco Corleone, Valiente, Volador Jr.
straight falls, Mephisto beating Volador with the Devil’s Wings twice (which seems to be much more powerful going into a title match than actually in a title match.) Mephisto asked Volador for a welterweight shot, Volador accepted, and Mephisto beat him up (much as the last match ended.)
5) Atlantis, Mr. Niebla, Último Guerrero DQ La Máscara, La Sombra, Shocker [Relevos Increíbles]
Team Atlantis took 2/3 in a quick match, with Sombra fouling Atlantis to end it.

All the Japanese trainees lose an apuesta match or two when they come to CMLL (at least since they started caring about them again.) Sometimes, with Kamaitachi or Namajague, they’re really good wrestlers and they can headline a major show. Yoshihashi was different, Yoshihashi wasn’t much good in CMLL, so CMLL fulfilled the obligation by hiding in Arena Puebla as to not to inflict it on an actual good show. My best guess is this is what’s happening with Molotov too. He’s not Japanese, but CMLL fills some obligation to give him a mask match while realizing he’s not good enough to put in their major arena. At least I hope this happens, because Molotov winning a a mask

TXT (MON) 10/05/2015 Domo de la Feria, León, Guanajuato [+LuchaTV, Fuego en el Ring]
1) ? ?? ??
2) Lady Apache b Rossy Moreno
3) Bobby Lee Jr., Huracan Ramirez, Rayman b Heddi Karaoui, Pirata Morgan, Zumbi
Rayman beat Karaoui and asked for a title match. Karaoui said no (and possibly can’t if this is his last night with TxT
4) Angel Blanco Jr. © b Cielito [WWA MIDDLE]
fourth defense? Cielito is Magnifico II, getting a new name.
5) Canek, El Hijo Del Santo, Octagón b Dr. Wagner Jr., Fuerza Guerrera, Heavy Metal
Santo challenged Heavy Metal to a mask versus hair match (?)

Couldn’t really get a sense of the crowd from the pictures, which is probably a good sign of the size of the crowd. Santo challenging Metal is so random that I assume it’s actually happening.

Lucha Libre Elite, the new name for the company that used to be All Elite, says they’re returning to Arena Mexico on 10/25. That’s a Sunday, the week before the Dia de Muertos shows (which may explain why they started the Sunday title match program for that early; they’re losing a week.) “All Elite” was in legal trouble over the show in Queretaro that fell apart, which might explain why they’re using a new name now. Lucha Libre Elite appears to be the group promoting the Leyendas shows in Guadalajara the last couple of months.  The card for this show should be out soon.

Guerrero Negro Jr., who part of CMLL’s En Busca de un Idolo in 2014 before leaving the promotion and returning home to Satillo, was shot twice in the chest from a moving car early Monday morning. The unknown attacker shot at him six times and hit him twice. He was with his girlfriend, who immediately drove to his hospital. He’s said to be “in delicate but stable condition.”

Sombra, Dragon Lee and Titan take on Ultimo Guerrero, Mephisto and Boby Zavala in today’s CMLL Arena Mexico show. Sombra replaces the originally announced Rush but makes more sense in that spot, since he cost Dragon Lee the match last week. Zavala hasn’t got his title match for winning the En Busca de un Idolo. The recap mentions his shoulder is healthy (and the Universal tournament is half over) so maybe it’ll come up soon.

CMLL says Demus and Shockercito will sign for their hair match Wednesday on CMLL Informa. No date is specified, but they imply it’ll be the 10/30 Friday Dia de Muertos show

A pretty loaded Puebla card. Hopefully the restrictions they seem to be working under (1h50m shows, openers toned down) will be lifted for this show or they’ll be some really quick matches.

CMLL Puebla: 2015-10-05

Black Tiger stuck in a vortex of violence

Recapped: 10/05/2015

What happened? Lestat challenged Molotov to a mask match and it’s actually happening next week. (That’s a four week build, nearly as long as Sombra/Atlantis.) Mephisto beat Volador in straight falls to set up a title match next week. 

What was good? Not much. The all CMLL matches were rushed and mailed in. The Puebla guys had some bad moments or were obviously toning down their style. The tercera, with Dragon Lee & Kamaitachi, was the one good match on the show.

Where can I watch it? It’s up on CMLL’s YouTube channel.

RIOT, IWRG, Lucha Underground taping date, Daniel Bryan, CMLL weekend lineups

RIOT (SAT) 10/03/2015 Arena Femenil, Monterrey, Nuevo León[LuchaMania Monterrey]
1) Psicotico b Lord Byron
2) Alberto Dos Rios b Belial
Alberto was originally supposed to face Electro Boy, but he’s out two weeks with injury. His opponent instead turned out to be Belial. Alberto won with a Canadian Destroyer.
3) Erick Ortiz b Kaientai, Arez
Ortiz beat Kaientai
4) Low Rider & Sammy Guevarab Kratoz & Ultimo Ninja
Low Rider & Guevara jumped the other team. High flying match. Guevara faked an injury and fouled Kratoz for the win.
5) Caifan b Epydemius
Odd finish – Epydemius could not continue due to losing his hearing after a Caifan shot. Arez ran out and challenged Caifan to a Perros del Mal title match (Caifan won it in this building.) Caifan said he didn’t have the belt with him, but was ready to fight anyway.
6) Caifan b Arez
Caifan won again (if this was meant to be an official match)
7) Dralion b Rey Horus
Dralion won with two German suplexes.

I haven’t heard much about the matches, but the tag match sounds good. They have a YouTube channel so maybe clips will turn up there?

IWRG (SUN) 10/04/2015 Arena Naucalpan [The Gladiatores]
1) Kanon & Omega b Acero & Adrenalina
2) Leo, Miss Gaviota, Mr. Leo b Demetrio El Gladiador, Hip Hop Man, Ram El Carnero
Demetiro and Hip Hop Man are father/son.
3) El Golpeador, Oficial AK47, Rayan b Freelance, Pantera I, Relámpago
4) El Hijo del Diablo, Imposible, Trauma II b Golden Magic, Hijo del Pantera, Pantera
Straight falls for the rudos. Trauma II wants a title match against Golden Magic.
5) Dr. Wagner Jr., Heddi Karaoui, Hijo De Dos Caras b Máscara Año 2000 Jr., Negro Navarro, Trauma I
Team Wagner took 2/3, the last when Hijo de Dr. Wagner appeared to distract Mascara into a loss. Navarro challenged the Wagners to a match.

There are a high amount of challenges in IWRG right now and very few actual matches. In theory, this is Karaoui’s last IWRG match. (I think it’s not.)

PWInsider says Lucha Underground will start begin taping on 11/14. That’s a month earlier that people were saying; they got things rolling quick. Lucha Underground tapings were Saturday/Sundays last year, they usually tape two times a month and they’re not going to tape Thanksgiving weekend, so pencil in 11/14, /11/15, 11/21 and 11/22 as possible dates. Assuming they stick with two episodes a night, that’s eight weeks of TV (and probably another eight weeks in December before the first episode airs.) There were (fan) concerns about spoilers or the long distance between when the shows were taped and where they’d air hurting things, but just starting in November while airing in January suggests they’re not going to change that much.

In the roughly ten thousand interview about his injury status, Daniel Bryan talked about how he’d definitely go back to wrestling elsewhere if WWE wouldn’t clear him. (WWE’s never going to let him go without a long period of ugliness, so everything past this point is theoretical.) Bryan says he’s been getting into lucha libre history of late and would love to put his hair up against someone’s mask as the main event of a CMLL Anniversary show. (Link via Uproxx.) That would be great fun! I think there’s a pretty good shot the people in charge of CMLL have no idea who Daniel Bryan is and wouldn’t recognize him if he walked into the office wearing a Daniel Bryan shirt! They probably would really like him if they knew him, so maybe Arkangel would just have to train him for a month and all would be good. I’d now start cutting random promos on Daniel Bryan if I was a CMLL luchador but that’s generally why I’m not a luchador.

Segunda Caida reviews Misterioso vs Vulcano vs Huichol.

Super Libre had many guests, including Satanico, Tiniebla and Máscara Año 2000.


CMLL (SAT) 10/10/2015 Arena Coliseo
1) Bengala vs Camorra
2) Star Jr. vs Metálico
3) Hombre Bala Jr. vs Hijo del Signo
4) Tritón vs Sagrado
5) Marcela & Princesa Sugehit vs Amapola & Dalys
6) Blue Panther, La Máscara, Máximo vs Felino, Rey Bucanero, Vangellys
7) Atlantis vs Rey Escorpión

The last Atlantis/Rey Escorpion match was OK. This will probably be okay too. Triton/Sagrado sounds fun.

CMLL (SUN) 10/11/2015 Arena México
1) Flyer & Robin vs Apocalipsis & Inquisidor
2) Eléctrico, Fantasy, Último Dragoncito vs Demus 3:16, Mercurio, Pequeño Olímpico
3) Delta, Fuego, Rey Cometa vs Misterioso Jr., Pierroth, Sagrado
4) Titán vs Negro Casas [lightning]
5) Ángel de Oro, Atlantis, La Máscara vs Boby Zavala, Dragón Rojo Jr., Pólvora
6) Máximo, Rush, Valiente vs Euforia, Terrible, Último Guerrero

Terrible and Maximo matched up again, so maybe that’s going somewhere.

CMLL (SUN) 10/11/2015 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Ángel Aéreo & Capitan Cobra vs Black Sugar & Mr. Apolo
2) El Divino, El Yaqui, Linterna vs El Chakal, Gran Kenut, Relampago
3) Lycan, Magnum, Mr. Iguana vs Monster Truck, Rey Trueno, Siniestro
4) La Pantera © vs Chica Tormenta [NORTE FEMENIL]
5) Esfinge, Gallo, Kempo Dragon vs Furia Roja, Príncipe Kisho, Ráfaga

More people from Sinaloa and other locales debuting, including friend of the site Mr. Iguana.

It looks like El Yaqui may have turned yesterday? I dunno. Not sure about the title either.

PROLLM (SUN) 10/18/2015 Coliseo Coacalco, Coacalco, Estado de México
18th Anniversary show
1) Aeronix, Dinamic King, Golden Cat, Haziel, Loki, Vengador vs Abner, Betos Boy, Forastero, Lobo Escarlata, Macho IV, Macho V
2) Chicago Rush vs Jhon Crazy [mask, hair]
Chicago Rush’s mask vs Crazy’s hair
3) Daga vs As Charro Jr., Tony Rivera
4) Aramis, Judas el Traidor, Magnifico vs Guerrero Maya Jr., La Máscara, Rush
5) Boby Zavala & Virus vs Eterno & Rocky Santana
6) Canek, Heavy Metal, Solar I vs Máscara Año 2000, Negro Navarro, Universo 2000
7) Justiciero vs Jeque [hair]

Annual big October show for this building. At least for the moment, they’ll have both CMLL & AAA luchadors on the show (Daga works these shows because he and Eterno started here.)

CMLL Puebla tonight has La Mascara, La Sombra & Shocker taking on Atlantis, Mr. Niebla and Ultimo Guerrero. Lestat & Molotov continue their feud in the third match, which also includes Dragon Lee & Kamaitachi. As usual, the early matches look promising and the CMLL matches could go either way. Show will air on YouTube at 9pm CT.

Todo x el Todo also returns to action with a show in Leon tonight. Main event is Canek, Santo and Octaogn versus Dr. Wagner, Fuerza Guerrera and Heavy Metal. Angel Blanco Jr. defends his WWA Middleweight Championship against Cielito (aka Magnifico II.) There’s no announced TV coverage for the show. This is supposed to be the first part of a tour, but they’ve been light on details for the rest of the shows.

10/04 AAA TV Results (Heroes Inmortales)

AAA TV (SUN) 10/04/2015 Domo de San Luis, San Luis Potosí, San Luis Potosí [The Gladiatores]
Heroes Inmortales IX
1) Taya © b Goya Kong, La Hiedra, Lady Shani, Maravilla [Reina del Reinas]
The two mystery people were Lady Shani (debuted on last taping) and Lady Maravilla. A good match, with Taya retaining by defeating (Lady) Maravilla. First defense.
2) Angélico & Jack Evans b Joe Lider & Pentagón Jr. © and Daga & Steve Pain [AAA TAG]
The two Perros del Mal teams fought like they were never allies. Myzteziz strangely came to the ring during the match, attacking everyone and costing Pentagon Jr. the win after a package piledriver. Most of the match chased Pentagon to the stage, leaving Steve Pain to be beat by Jack for the title change. Jack & Angelico are tag champions. Lider & Pentagon end their reign with zero defenses, but signaled they wanted a rematch.
3) Drago & Fénix b Brian Cage & El Mesías
Drago & Fenix fought well, but lost to Cage & Mesias. Mesias took Fenix’s mask after the match.
4) Taurus b Cibernético, La Parka, Blue Demon Jr., Averno, Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Electroshock, Aerostar, Chessman, Niño Hamburguesa [Copa Antonio Pena]
The debuting Taurus got the win, eliminating La Parka last in the usual royal rumble fashion. Antonio Pena was honored with a moment of appluase before the match.
5) Garza Jr., Psycho Clown, Rey Mysterio Jr. b Hijo del Fantasma, Myzteziz, Texano Jr.
The debuting Garza Jr. is Hijo del Ninja, doing Hector Garza spots. He looked fine, but took the loss to Myzteziz. Myzteziz had problems with his partners but seemed on the same page after the win.
6) El Patrón Alberto © DQ Johnny Mundo [AAA HEAVY]
second defense. Johnny was caught using a guitar as a weapon by Hijo del Tirantes. Mundo had earlier slapped Tirantes for not counting fast enough, so Tirantes called the DQ. Cage (Mundo’s second) and Mundo attacked Alberto and Psycho Clown (Alberto’s second.) Rey made the save. Myzteziz attacked him. La Sociedad ran out to attack the tecnicos and Myzteziz, smashing a guitar over his head for betraying them earlier. Alberto and Rey eventually ran the rudos off the end the show, but did not save Myzteziz.

Air Date: 10/17 & 10/24

All the details are the recap post below.

Chilanga Mask: 2015-08-16 

Belial multitasking

Recapped: 08/27/15

What happened? Chilanga Mask doesn’t do a lot on show to show angles, so this doesn’t quite work conventionally. There were some stories though: team Oaxaca beat team Estado de Mexico, setting up a rematch on a future Oaxaca show. Disturbio’s Lucha Kaos group debuted with a win. Ultimo Guerrero and Caifan attempted to murder each other with chops, setting up a singles match a month later. The Guerrero Mayas attempted to murder each with everything and will likely fight again some day. 

What was good? Dr. Cerebro versus Virus is one of my favorite matches of the year. I can’t think of a better Mexico woman’s match than Keira/Zeuxis. The Mayas have a super brawl.
