IWRG (SUN) 02/01/2015 Arena Naucalpan [Semiotica Del Deporte (Facebook), Tercera Caida]
1) Dowki & Power Bull b Alfa & Galaxy
2) Emperador Azteca, Metaleón, Pantera I b Avisman, El Hijo del Diablo, Hip Hop Man
3) Danny Casas, Golden Magic, Relámpago b Canis Lupus, Hijo del Dr. Wagner Jr., X-Fly
Wagner’s first match here since May (probably due to him being around after working Saturday’s UWE show.) Danny caught Canis with a cradle and wants a title shot, but Canis said Danny’s got to prove himself in a non-title match first.
4) Hijo de Máscara Año 2000 & Universo 2000 Jr. DQ Hijo De Dos Caras & Súper Nova [super libre]
DQ in a super libre match after a ref was accidentally stabbed with a fork.
5) Eterno b Chicano [hair]
Seconds were Mascara Ano 2000 Jr. (Eterno) and Danny Casas (Chicano). Not sure why Canis wasn’t the Eterno’s second except they had a feud to set up. Chicano took fall 1, with Eterno bleeding already. Eterno rallied back to take 2/3, the last with a Spanish Fly. Mascara 2000 got involved in the post match (Chicano blaming him for the loss?), and he and Universo are now involved in the tag feud with Eterno/Canis & Chicano/Danny
Eterno avenges a hair loss four years later. Match should air tonight on AYM, sometime between 7pm and 2AM.
Mistico returns to Arena Puebla for the first time in eight months tonight, teaming with new partners Volador & Valiente to take on Ephesto, Mephisto and Polvora. A singles match between Ultimo Guerrero and Sombra is the actual main event. No announcement of Rey Cometa’s replacement, but then CMLL’s hasn’t actually announced he’s out of action.
The current Comandante Pierroth says the previous Pierroth specifically picked him to get the gimmick. That’s a good story anyway. (And one they probably should’ve told a year ago if it was meant to be believed.) In that interview, Comandante Pierroth acknowledges the bad reaction to the character, saying the fans rejected him when he was originally put on top and now he’s got to earn his place. Comandante Pierroth noting how hard it is to follow Norberto Salgado makes one wonder why CMLL didn’t just give the new guy a different/new character, but the repeated mentions of how Salgado was just one of many people to use the name since the 60s is a clue. CMLL really likes it’s own IP.
LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.
Ohtani’s Jacket reviews Ultimo Dragon vs Negro Casas from 1992.
Super Luchas looks back at a middleweight #1 contenders match from 1939 among other February 2nd notes.
Stukita says he debuted at 12, that he started making gear because it was cheaper than buying it, and his toughest opponent are the people who don’t pay him after he’s made something for them. He can make two masks a day when he’s not off wrestling someplace.
CMLL (FRI) 02/06/2015 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Leo & Omar Brunetti vs Jocker & Sádico [OCCIDENTE TAG, tournament]
2) Flash I & Flash II vs Exterminador & Maléfico [OCCIDENTE TAG, tournament]
3) Esfinge & Gallo vs Mr. Trueno & Rey Trueno [OCCIDENTE TAG, tournament]
4) Dragón Rojo Jr., Marco Corleone, Super Porky vs Felino, Mr. Águila, Terrible
5) Atlantis vs Gran Guerrero
That main event is just weird. Atlantis can have a good 8 minute match with anyone (and it’d probably be a better one if it was just one fall.)
No results from this past Friday have been posted but those tournament matches give about half the winners. Kind surprised the Cien Caras sons didn’t advance, but they were matched against the Flashs so they were probably doomed. I might have spent way too much time coming up with a 12 team tournament bracket for the wiki.
