Lucha Memes (SUN) 11/27/2016 Arena Naucalpan [+LuchaTV, Black Terry Jr. (Flickr), R de Rudo]
1) Laredo Kid b Rey Cometa [falls count anywhere]
Very good match. Laredo Kid asked for a title match against Cometa after the win.
2) Arez, Astral, Belial, Impulso b Alas de Acero, Aramis, Iron Kid, Shockercito and Freelance, Pantera I, Sádico, Último Dragóncito
Seems to be setting up a cage match with the non-CMLL minis.
3) Negro Navarro b Puma King
lucha clasica, Navarro submitted Puma.
4) Star Jr. DCOR Soberano Jr., Dragón Lee
none of the wrestlers were happy with the results
5) Felino b Dr. Cerebro [el privilegio]
Felino won when the referee allowed Tiger to interfere and foul Dr. Cerbero as his privilege (rule exception), but Felino had already used his privilege.
6) Atlantis b Alberto Dos Rios, Magnífico, Último Vampiro, Marchitas, Black Metal, Baby Star Jr., Zoy Raymunda, Avenger, Astrolux, Drako, Gato De Ecatepec, Juan el Ranchero, Súper Chiva, El Monje, Mano Negra, 19 1/2 [Memes Rumble]
17 names (though 21 came out, so probably missing a few.) Atlantis (winner) and Mano Negra were the big surprises.
7) Valiente DQ Black Terry [super libre]
DQ in a super libre when Valiente faked a foul
8) Hechicero b Caifan [NWA LH]
This was set up originally as three fall match, but Hechicero also wanted to make it a title defense. Caifan and the commission agreed. First fall went to a draw and Hechicero won the second fall (and it seems as though they didn’t do a third fall since Caifan couldn’t win the title at that point.) First defense.
Haven’t seen a lot of reviews of the shows yet – I think I need to start looking more places? – but my impression is the first and last matches might have been the best. Atlantis showing up in the Memes Rumble and winning the whole thing was a genuine cool surprise. Caifan seems to have bled a lot in the main event, and Terry did as well in his match. Dragon Lee was wearing a Rush/Lee fused match; is this a Pokemon situation where a Dragon Lee can evolve into a Mistico or a Rush depending on what item they’re holding? I’m not sure the world is ready for a second Rush.
Attendance looks good, though maybe not the sell out past Chairo shows have been. +LuchaTV was posting post match interviews during the show (go down to 226 on the playlist for the new stuff) and will post highlights soon, though you can find video clips now on Facebook if you look around.
CMLL has an ordinary show in Puebla tonight. Last week had the Polvora/Dragon Lee match, and they built up nothing particular for this week. (Astral’s injury seems to have derailed whatever they were planning with him and Mini Joker as well, though maybe it’ll be back next week.) The main event is the Sky Team versus Gran Guerrero, La Mascara and Ultimo Guerrero, something similar to a trios title match they just did. The semimain has Diamante Azul, Johnny Idol, Maximo versus Kraneo, Ripper and Shocker. There seems to be a monthly match in Puebla that looks like it’d be good except for the never changing Stigma/Skandalo feud; this months match has Esfinge & Fuego versus Puma & Tiger. The second match has Amapola, Seductora, Tiffany versus Estrellita, Princesa Sugehit and Sanely. The locals are only in the opener, with Black Tiger, Meyer and Vega versus Ares, Guerrero Espacial and Sombra Diabolika.
CultIcon previews this show. It’ll air at 9pm on YouTube/CMLL.com, where there hardly ever is a region block.

5) La Máscara, Mr. Niebla, Niebla Roja vs Atlantis, Diamante Azul, Stuka Jr.
Mr. Niebla is back, after a seven weeks break. Tercera is a rematch, so maybe they’re going somewhere with the tag titles after all.

2) Fantasy, Shockercito, Stukita vs Demus 3:16, Pequeño Universo 2000, Pequeño Violencia

CMLL (SUN) 12/04/2016 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Avispón Negro Jr. vs Destello
2) Black Sugar & Micro vs Destructor & Quca
3) Capitán Cobra & Fugaz vs Linterna & Mr. Brisa
4) Frezzer, Magnum, Vaquero Jr. vs Joker, Mr. Trueno, Sádico
5) Esfinge, Neutrón, Tritón vs Exterminador, León Blanco, Maléfico
And Triton is back in Mexico, as he had mentioned. This is the locals only show, so he’s being booked thru them and not back with CMLL entirely, though he’s promoted as the big deal on the show. The Leon/Neutron feud resumes after a week off.
