Lunatik replaced Misterioso. Extreme match (barbed wire.) Barbaro Cavernario beat Ciclope & Paranoiko.
6) Máscara Dorada b Carístico, Titán (CMLL), Volador Jr. [Copa Boom Internacional]
Dorada Driver on Titan. Said to be good.
Publimetro has a story collecting Black Terry Jr.’s video (and bloody pictures) of Robin’s accident.
Dorada went from not appearing on this show to winning the main event and getting a trophy. Terry has the highlights of the main event; RobViper says it was really good. AYM was not taping the show, so you’ll have to get the show from Terry or someone else who recorded it on their own.
Mascara Dorada goes from this match to team with Mistico & Valiente tonight in Arena Puebla. They face Euforia, Gran Guerrero and La Mascara. Mascara’s involvement means this is less likely to end cleanly than on Friday, but Dorada’s been doing some of the best work of his career the last few months and even a normally sleepy match in Puebla might be must watching.
It’s all trios matches on the show tonight. Atlantis, Johnny Idol & Maximo face Negro Casas, Sam Adonis and Shocker; Adonis fouled Idol last week. Guerrero Maya, Stigma and Stuka face Invasors Kraneo, Olimpico and Ripper. Astral, Austirano, Electrico take on Mini Joker, Pequeno Violencia and Sauron, in a minis match which is one mini rudo short of being pretty good. The opener is Astro, Paris, Vega and Fuerza Chicana, Guerrero Espacial, and Inquisidor.
The CMLL Puebla show airs at 9pm on CMLL.com/YouTube.
10/23 Phoenix – Arizona State Fair (free show with $10 adult/$5 children fair admission ticket)
10/30 Houston – Traders Village Flea Market ($4 parking and free admission)
11/05 Escondido (San Diego) – Tamale Festival (free admission)
No start times. None of the websites for these events mention Lucha Underground, but Lucha Underground has acknowledged them this morning when asked about them on Twitter and have said more details are coming.
These shows seem more like brand building than stand alone trying to make money themselves. That’s not necessarily a fatal flaw: DTU’s show at a fair on Sunday had an excellent sounding Ronnie Mendoza/Pesadilla vs Puma/Tiger match, so I think LU can have a good show at a Tamale Festival too. I would just keep your expectations in check if you’re going to these.
Angel de Oro lost to Kamaitachi in Dearborn on Saturday’s ROH show. Match was said to be pretty good. So that’s two things we can seem to credit to Dragon Lee/Kamaitachi: ROH seems more excited to bring in CMLL people, and Kamaitachi is actually winning now.
The La Parka story headlines Box Y Lucha 3255.
Magnifico took Tony Rivera’s hair on Coliseo Coacalco’s anniversary show. Black Out lost his mask to Mr. Potro in a cage match on the same show. He’s Jose Luis Contreras Chavez, 21 years old, 1 year a wrestler.
LigerFever translated +LuchaTV’s recent interview with Psycho Clown. Psycho Clown told a long story about how he absolutely can not wrestle for three weeks and he’s right on the edge of making Star Battle, and then he was in the ring a couple days later. (He probably shouldn’t be in the ring.)
CMLL (SUN) 10/23/2016 Arena México
1) Fantasy & Stukita vs Pequeño Nitro & Pequeño Violencia
2) La Jarochita, Lluvia, Princesa Sugehit vs La Seductora, Tiffany, Zeuxis
3) Guerrero Maya Jr., Pegasso, Rey Cometa vs Bobby Z, Pólvora, Vangellys
4) Mistico, Stuka Jr., Volador Jr. vs Felino, La Máscara, Mephisto
5) Mr. Niebla, Pierroth, Rush vs Gran Guerrero, Shocker, Último Guerrero [Relevos Increíbles]
Main event is listed a relevos increibles. In CMLL’s mind, Rush is still a tecnico. He’s a rudo in everyone else’s mind and all his friends are rudo but CMLL is weird.
There’s likely a big match on 10/30, though not one they’ve bothered to set up. Rush/UG? Volador/Mephisto? Mistico/Mascara?
There’s been lots of women’s matches of late, but not a lot of Zeuxis. She’s not been totally frozen out since her WWE appearance, but this will be only her second appearance in the last four weeks.
Lucha Memes (SUN) 10/23/2016 Coliseo Coacalco, Coacalco, Estado de México
1) Astrolux, Baby Star, Zafiro (Chihuahua) vs Black Metal, Diosa Atenea, Moria
2) Impulso vs Mike Segura
3) Flyer, Soberano Jr., Star Jr. vs Alas de Acero, Aramis, Iron Kid
4) Negro Navarro © vs Alberto Dos Rios [FMLL CHAMP]
5) Keira vs Silueta
6) Ronnie Mendoza vs Dragón Lee
7) Hechicero vs Sammy Guevara
Full card for this Sunday’s show; I think the opener’s new. 3/6/7 have great potential.
CMLL (SUN) 10/23/2016 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Johnny Dinamo vs El Diplomático
2) Cosmos & El Alteño vs Mr. Brisa & Relámpago
3) El Divino, Sky Kid, Smaker vs Demonio Rojo, Gran Kenut, Thunder Boy
4) El Yaqui vs Évola
5) Metatrón, Nautilius, Neutrón vs Joker, Mr. Trueno, Rey Trueno
Yaqui/Evola were in a tag match this week after Evola cheated to win two weeks ago, so that’a feud and maybe an upcoming hair match.
XMW (SAT) 11/12/2016 Arena XMW, Ecatepec, Estado de México
1) Fulgor I & Fulgor II vs Maldad & Poseidón
2) Toxin, Wasson, Yoruba vs Douki, Orión, Taylor Wolf
3) Arez vs Belial, Kronoz, Torny, Fly Metalik, Obscuro
4) Látigo vs Rey Cometa vs Fly Warrior
5) Metaleón vs Tiger
6) Wotan vs LA Park vs Fly Star
XMW exists, has it’s own arena? Definitely has an odd main event.
