WWA (FRI) 12/05/2014 Auditorio de Tijuana, Tijuana, Baja California [El Mexicano]
1) Black Spider, Extasis, Memo Velasquez b Animaniac, Enfermero Jr., Mr. Maldito
2) Lady Apache b Datura [WWA Women]
Advertised as a WWA Women’s title match, but not mentioned in the news report. Dunno. Would be a vacant title match.
3) Cotton Candy b Perfecto [WWA EXOTICO]
Listed as a title match, but appeared to be for trophy and not a defended championship. Casandro & Rubi Gardenia were listed and didn’t appear, with Perfecto replacing.
4) Octagoncito (original) © b Piratita Morgan [WWA MINI]
Lobito was the last known Minis champion in 2012. Octagoncito lost the title to the previous champion, Mascarita Plateada in 2011 but magically has the belt back. Billed as a title being retained.
5) Bestia 666 & Damián 666 b Rayman & Rey Horuz [WWA TAG]
vacant title. Rayman & Rayo Jr. were the last known champions in 2012, though there was supposed to be a tournament for them on a July show in Tijuana. Rey Hourz turned on his partner.
6) Atlantis b Negro Casas [WWA JLH]
vacant title. Matches were supposed to be Atlantis vs Ultimo Guerrero and Negro Casas vs Diamante Azul, but they were combined into one after UG and Azul were booked on Infierno en el Ring.
Didn’t draw well, probably not helped by the random title matches and people figuring out they weren’t going to deliver on the advertised main event.
No IWRG results from last night but the pictures are cool.
This week’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter (suscriber only) updated Alberto’s plans. A video introducing Alberto was supposed to air on ROH’s PPV this past weekend, but it did not arrive on time. Alberto will work serval shows for January in ROH. (I read that as he’s working a lot in January but it’s unclear.) Alberto is supposed to work for Lucha Underground but is said not to have signed a contract yet, and Bellator did talk to him on Sunday (after failing to get CM Punk.)
Last night’s CMLL Informa included Soberano & Star pushing for a mask match. Felino talked about his hair loss and Mistico talked about his return, but still would not state a date. That situation is confusing, and my best guess is he’s not cleared yet to return but they wanted to have him to just say something on the Infierno en el Ring show. The Guadalajara move to Sundays was mentioned late in the show; earlier, JCR said Guadalajara would be running on Tuesdays, Fridays and still Sunday, which conflicts with what people in Guadalajara had been saying. Angelito being hurt was mentioned so quick you would’ve missed it (and had no idea what happened.)
Tercera Caida had another highlight heavy edition of the show; they still had to catch up on the All Elite shows. Teelo and Leo of the IWRG Ninja Turtles were the guest hosts and talked more after the show. Dinamic Black and Guerrero WMC were guests late in the show to hype their mask match late in the week, only Guerrero WMC forgot his mask and had to wear a Monje one. I don’t like WMC’s chances of winning.
CaraLuchas announced Negro Navarro vs Hechicero for Navarro’s FLLM Master Championship, which Black Terry Jr. had mentioned was coming a while back. Super Nova also defends his title against Trauma II.
LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.
Dinastia talks about his title defense.
Mascara Sagrada Jr. returned to Arena Aficion wearing his mask, again. He lost it there in 2010 and has just continued wearing whenever he shows up there. It’s more confusing why the promoters use him, since he’s only Mascara Sagrada Jr. and the only people who are dedicate enough to come those shows are the ones who are going to be annoyed by such things (as the recap illustrates.)
Guerrero Maya Jr. wants to face the winner of Monday’s tag title match (Mascara/Maximo vs Casas/Shocker) no matter what happens in his title defense against Hechicero & Cavernario.
SuperLuchas look back at past December 11 shows, including a win for Hipopotamo Wiggins. Picture of Hipopotamo included.
Lucha Libre in Japan
12/11 Tokyo Gurentai: Mil Mascaras [O], Terry Funk, Masakatsu Funaki b NOSAWA Rongai [X], Yoshiaki Fujiwara, Kaz Hayashi – Mil Mascaras won with a plancha, of course.
Marcela and Syuri had a press conference for the title match they’re having tomorrow that you’ve already forgotten about. Also, Goya Kong and Muneca de Plata were eating during the press conference, and demanding their four opponents weight in before facing them to see if they combined measure up to the Mexican pair.
