CMLL (MON) 09/29/2014 Arena Puebla [Periodico Enfoque, Periodico Enfoque (Fotos)]
1) Black Tiger & Rey Samuray b Akrón & Ares
Rey Samuray is listed as Samurai in the results (so they may have cut down one Rey.)
2) Leono & Soberano Jr. b Policeman & Toro Bill Jr.
Policeman first match here in 11 months came in a loss.
3) La Comandante & La Seductora b La Vaquerita & Lluvia
Originally scheduled to be Estrellita (c) vs Zeuxis for the MEX WOMEN title, but Estrellita pulled out due to a rib injury.
4) Misterioso Jr., Sagrado, Tiger b Ángel de Oro, Stigma, Stuka Jr.
Tiger replaced Skandalo. Misterioso pulled Stuka’s mask.
5) Diamante Azul, Máximo, Super Porky b Cavernario, Mr. Niebla, Rey Bucanero
6) La Máscara, La Sombra, Rush b Gran Guerrero, Último Guerrero, Volador Jr. [Relevos Increíbles]
Volador and Sombra feuded, with Rush & Mascara helping Sombra cheat to win.
Nitro replaces Skandalo today, so it looks like Skandalo is out with a mystery injury. Volador/Sombra has been going for a long time but has nothing on Misterioso and Stuka – they were facing off before he even was Misterioso.
NGX (SAT) 09/27/2014 Gimnasio Factores Mutuos, Monterrey, Nuevo León [LuchaMania Monterrey]
***Death Before Dishonor***
1) Neurosis b Armaggedon
2) Epydemius b Demenzía, Ultimo Ninja
Good match. Epydemius beat Ultimo Ninja with a Canadian Destroyer. Neurosis attacked Demenzia after the match.
3) Hooligan Byron & Xtreme Dragon b Black Spyder & Psicotico
Very good. Xtreme Dragon flew off a high place in the building to land on Black Spider.
4) Cachorro Zapata & Optymus b Alberto
Del Dos Rio & Difunto I
Tedious mat wrestling for the first half of the match (this crowd wasn’t here to see that style but it was also not interesting in that style) with the older partners strangely rooting for the younger guy on the opposite side for no obvious reason. It picked up in second half after Difunto smashed a bottle on Zapata’s head. Optymus took the same, and both members of the team left the match (at different times) for moments. Cachorro beat Difunto for the win.
5) Necro Butcher b Nicho el Millionario, Joe Lider
Necro’s NGX debut (though he’s wrestled here for other groups.) Necro hit himself with a chair before the match and was already bleeding before he got to the ring. Hardcore brawl as expected. He surprised Nicho with a cradle at the end.
After the match, Nicho criticized Sick Boy and Pagano as “Internet Luchadors”. Sick Boy was in the crowd and does not look happy on the video. This seemed like a set up to a Sick Boy/Pagano vs Lider/Nicho tag match but it’s tough to tell with NGX.
Today’s CMLL show has the Reyes del Atlantida vs Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas and Niebla Roja in the main event. That could be good and, since they’re currently bereft of feuds, could be the start of a trios title program.. The lightning match, which should be on CMLL’s YouTube site soon after it takes place, is Tiffany vs Princesa Sugehit.
An interview with the new Hell Brothers confirms they’re against all the tecnicos and all the rudos (and with neither side.) It’ll go better for them than the Dark Family.
Video report on Sunday’s indy show with CMLL wrestlers in Ciudad Juarez. Pagano was telling people they sold 2,000 tickets to the show, which is really good for any wrestling show anywhere.
Johnny Mundo announced Saturday’s Lucha Underground taping will have himself vs Big Zeke vs Prince Puma (Ricochet) in a ladder match. That sets up from the street fight from this previous Saturday’s show. Advertising matches people want to see ahead of time is a smart move. That’s the first four hour taping and perhaps they’ll wait until the end of the show to have it.
This week’s AAA TV only aired two matches from the latest Hard Rock show in Cancun. I was told – by people who know these things much better than me – that AAA might end up splitting that taping into two tapings and unwisely ignored it. All the airdates for AAA should be figured to go back one week. Maybe that even explains why Heroes Inmortales looks like a one show taping? (That’d be the first 1 week taping since early August.) If you count Heroes Inmortales as the first week of the build to Guerra de Titanes, AAA will have between 5 and 7 weeks to set up the year end show.
Ohtani’s Jacket reviews Negro Casas vs Ultimo Dragon
Mascara Sagrada Jr. & (a) Mascarita Sagrada were thought to be missing in Tabasco; they wrestled there on Saturday and when they didn’t turn up back in Mexico City on Sunday, people thought they may have been kidnapped. They weren’t, they just got drunk.
There’s an exhibition of lucha libre artwork in Veracruz.
CMLL’s top 10 has Mephisto #1 and Esfinge #10. This might be the only week where Esfinge ever makes this list.
CMLL (MON) 10/06/2014 Arena Puebla
1) Meyer & Paris vs Centauro de Fuego & Fuerza Chicana
2) Astro Aéreo Jr. & Último Dragoncito vs Blue Center & Demus 3:16
3) Asturiano, Dragon Lee, Oro Jr. vs Arkángel de la Muerte, King Jaguar, Siki Ozama Jr.
4) Ángel de Oro, Rey Cometa, Stigma vs Misterioso Jr., Sagrado, Skándalo
5) Máximo, Stuka Jr., Valiente vs Ephesto, Hombre sin Nombre, Mephisto
6) Volador Jr. © vs La Sombra [NWA WELTER]
Volador’s first defense on this reign.
That’s (known) singles match #20 between Volador & Sombra since August 30th, 2010, not including all the other interactions. It’s their fifth singles match this year – they’re running them every even numbered month now – and the fifth time they’ve done this match in this arena. They’re tied two to two here.
This feud is in the weird middle ground where it’s over enough that they keep going back to it but not over enough where they feel the need to protect it from losing it’s specialness. There’s not as many Negro Casas/Rush matches. The Sombra who ends up in Durango during the Anniversary show sure isn’t winning this match.
Segunda reminds me that CMLL could’ve pulled in a couple Puebla regulars to get a full 16 person field on Sunday’s Arena Coliseo Minis #1 contenders cibernetico.
