LyC (SUN) 09/28/2014 Arena Coliseo Monterrey [LuchaMania Monterrey]
1) Big Neurosis & Niño Hamburguesa b Erika Sotelo & Larry Miranda
2) Ninja Jr., Silencio, Ultimo Ninja b Hombre Sin Miedo, Misionero, Tigre Cota
best match of the show.
3) Ministro de la Muerte b Tigre Universitario, Bengali, Difunto I, Meetal,Pancho Tequila, Gringo Loko, Ángel Dorado Jr., Angel Justiciero, Monje Negro Jr., El Pulpo [WWA MIDDLE]
Ministro, not originally listed in the match, won the WWA Middleweight championship.
4) Chessman & Zorro b Golden Boy & Máscara Púrpura
the AAA rudos destroyed Golden Boy; Purpura looked better.
5) Angélico & Dralion vs Electroshock & Rico Rodriguez
No Simbolo, and Caifan was just sort of left off, causing this to be reshuffled in a tag match. Electroshock and the referee feuded until Angelico rolled up Electroshock
6) Cibernético & Dr. Wagner Jr. NC Averno & Myzteziz [Relevos Increíbles]
The relevos increible idea was pretty much ignored by the middle of the match, with Wagner & Myzteziz working together against the new Hell Brothers. Wagner and Myzteziz had submissions at the end, Chessman ran in for the save, and the announcer said the winners were Wagner & Myzteziz by DQ (which makes no sense at all, so we’ll go with a No Contest.)
Relevos Incredible matches where no one’s interesting in actually doing a relevos incredible are pretty annoying. Building was said to be 90% full on the lower level and 10% on the upper level. A nearby show in Guadalupe with Texano, Parka and Perro on top was said to draw 3000.
CMLL (TUE) 09/30/2014Arena México [CMLL]
1) Akuma & Ramstein bBengala & Robin
Akuma replaced Zayco.
2) Kamaitachi, Nitro, Okumura b Hombre Bala Jr., Magnus, Súper Halcón Jr.
moved down a spot. Rudos took 1/3
3) Tiffany b Princesa Sugehit [lightning]
moved up to the third. A bit of an upset win.
4) Misterioso Jr., Pierroth, Sagrado b Oro Jr., Pegasso, Tritón
straight falls, Pierroth fouling Triton after a Comandante distraction.
5) Ángel de Oro, Blue Panther, Stuka Jr. b Felino, Hechicero, Pólvora
Tecnicos took 2/3.
6) Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas, Niebla Roja b Atlantis, Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr.
Rudos took 1/3 clean.
A show. At this point, I’m sure CMLL filmed some vignettes with Pierroth, Sagrado, Misterioso as a new trio, maybe took some publicity photos, maybe even got them matching outfits, and then just never publicized any of it. Whoever’s in charge clearly believes they’re meant to be a important trio (and more or less replacements for the Revolucionarios.)
CMLL (TUE) 09/30/2014 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [@acogdl]
1) El Divino & Metatrón b Jocker & Sádico
2) Canelo Casas, El Cuatrero, Sansón b Esfinge, Omar Brunetti, Stigma
Rudos took 2/3
3) Maléfico © b Rey Cometa [OCCIDENTE LH]
Malefico’s champion and kept the belt by taking falls 23, the last via unseen foul. Second defense.

Tecncios took 2/3.
5) Diamante Azul, Valiente, Volador Jr. DQ Rey Bucanero, Shocker, Terrible
Tecnicos took 1/3, Shocker blatantly fouling
Shocker Volador in the third.
Shocker can’t give matches like that, Terrible has so few wins as it is. Also not winning: Rey Cometa.
Alberto del Rio was announced as appearing on the 10/24 & 25 WWC shows in Puerto Rico. Alberto del Rio was also announced for a 10/24 Tijuana show. Not quite sure how he’s going to pull that off. This is going to be issue with ADR for the next year or so; everyone’s going to want him and he can’t quite yet work everywhere at once.
ChilangaMask added Dr. Cerbero vs Caifan to it’s Arena Solidaridad show on 10/26, and Keira vs TBA on it’s 10/25 Coacalco show.
Xalapa 17 year old prospect Vengador Radioactivo announced on Facebook that he was saying goodbye to lucha libre. It’s not at all what it sounds like. The Vengador Radioactivo character was created by someone else – Ricardo Munoz – and the current luchador is going forward with a different identity. A good long interview with Vengador Radioactivo’s mother from a couple weeks ago mentions Munoz pretty much was Vengador’s sponsor (buying his gear, paying training costs) and I’d guess that relationship is coming to an end. That same interview mentions Vengador trip to NOAH is a couple days after he turns 18; perhaps that’s where/when the new character will be revealed.
A article on WrestlingInc. says the Lucha Underground episodes cost $600,000 to $700,000 per taping and a producer was critical of negative feedback. Dorian Roldan shot this down as 100% false, noting in particular the producer didn’t work on the brand mentioned.
Segunda Caida reviews La Sombra, Máximo, Rush vs Negro Casas, Rey Bucanero, Shocker and Lucha Azteca 07/19/14.
Black Terry has video of a Belial & Terremoto vs Mr. Leo & Tornado match which was used on a telenovela.
There’s a benefit show for Estrella Explosiva on Thursday in Arena Roberto Paz; she was hurt on the ChilangaMask show a couple weekends ago.
Kraneo says a show tomorrow in Toluca using the Lucha Libre USA name (!?!?!) is falsely advertising himself and plenty of other people who aren’t booked.
DJ Spectro is selling digital copies of magazines again. This reminds me of my newest plan to do a lot of work on lucha libre and make no money that I probably should reveal in a series of somewhat coherent Twitter messages.
CMLL (TUE) 10/07/2014 Arena México
1) Fresbee & Leono vs Apocalipsis & Camorra
2) Esfinge, Sensei, Starman vs Artillero, Canelo Casas, Súper Comando
3) Hombre Bala Jr., Stigma, Súper Halcón Jr. vs Kamaitachi, Metálico, Okumura
4) Dragon Lee vs Raziel [lightning]
5) Blue Panther, Fuego, Super Porky vs Bárbaro Cavernario, Hombre sin Nombre, Pólvora
6) Atlantis, Máscara Dorada, Titán vs Gran Guerrero, Niebla Roja, Rey Escorpión
Dragon Lee vs Raziel should be fun and the main event has a chance. Would be nice to see Mascara Dorada go all out.
CMLL (TUE) 10/07/2014 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Magnus & Star Jr. vs Demonio Maya & Ráfaga
2) Dark Angel, La Vaquerita, Lluvia vs La Comandante, La Seductora, Zeuxis
3) Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr., Stuka Jr. vs Misterioso Jr., Pierroth, Sagrado
4) Marco Corleone, Máximo, Rush vs Rey Bucanero, Terrible, Vangellys
5) Volador Jr. vs Shocker
Those are two guys who don’t seem like they’ll work well together in the main event, but I guess you never know. Bufete del Amor back together in the semimain. Maybe Sagrado, Pierroth and Misterioso can go with “Los Odiosos”?
