Canada defeats Mexico 2-0, Ninja Turtles arrival imminent

IWRG (SUN) 09/28/2014 Arena Naucalpan [The Gladiatores]
1) Araña de Plata Jr. b Sky Ángel
straight falls
2) Metaleon & Saruman b Atomic Star & Freyser
3) Apolo Estrada Jr., Avisman, El Hijo del Diablo b Diva Salvaje, Dr. Cerebro, Miss Gaviota
straight falls. Gringos have passed over a year of being Mexico State champions.
4) Hijo De Dos Caras, Súper Nova, Veneno b Canis Lupus, Hijo de Máscara Año 2000, Universo 2000 Jr.
Hijo de Dos returned. Tecnicos took 2/3 though the third fall finish was confusing. Mascara had Dos down and covered him for a three count according to referee Sonrisas, but referee Reyes Rosas ruled Dos got a shoulder up in a time. Confusion followed, and Dos suplexed Mascara for the win.
5) Demon Clown DQ Cien Caras Jr.
Mexico vs Canada! Demon Clown jumped Cien, who was not really helped by Mascara hitting him with a chair by mistake. Demon took the middle rope splash for the second. Ref Rosas was taken out in the second fall, leading to Mascara coming in to help beat up Demon Clown, but the ref came too and DQed the Capos. Straight falls for Demon Clown. Cien, having lost in two falls, challenged Hijo de Dos for a title match and Demon for a rematch. Dos appeared to accept the title change.

A proud day for Canada! I wonder what Demon Clown’s fantasy hockey team is called. My interest in this main event program begins and ends with Demon Clown’s Canada-ness. I would suggest IWRG not try to book Hijo de Dos on 10/12. Just play it safe.

Gringos VIP attacked Dr. Cerbero during interviews, so that feud is still going. IWRG has a few set ups of big matches (for IWRG) but there’s no real idea of when they’ll be doing them now that September is over. They also have the annual Halloween cage match show about a month from now.

The new Ninja Turtles appeared before the crowd and it was announced they’ll debut next week. Not a big fan of the new designs, but the movie designs weren’t so great so maybe they’re accurate. They’re IWRG opening match guys getting a new gimmick.

Tonight’s CMLL show in Puebla was supposed to be Zeuxis challenging Estrellita for the Mexican Women’s Championship, but Estrellita is out with a rib injury. The Puebla paper who covers the shows says she’ll be out two weeks. (That match felt like a routine Estrellita defense when it was announced, but I’m now a lot less sure about that.) The actual main event is Ingobernables versus the odd team of Ultimo Guerrero, Gran Guerrero and Volador Jr.

The ColiseoMania show drew a big crowd last night in Arena Coliseo Monterrey. They say they’ll eb back on 11/02 for a Arena Coliseo 59th Anniversary show.

ChilangaMask added Fly Warrior, Karma, Electro Boy vs Oficial AK47, Oficial 911, Kastigador vs Astro Rey Jr., Benji Maverick, Psico Kid (as the Guardians of the Galaxy) to the 10/25 Coacalco show and the Indystrongtibles trio of Impulos, Arez, Belial against Monterrey locals Xtreme Dragon, Dralion and Rey Orion to the 10/26 Arena Solidaridad show.

Ovett & Angel o Demonio broke up on the DTU shows this weekend.

LuchaWorld has a KrisZ news update and this week’s PosterMania.

Rob has highlights of 06/13/14 CMLL.

Black Danger, said to be from Guataemala, lost his mask in Michoacan.

XMW will have a show on 11/01 at Gimnasio Gloria (named “Una Noche Mas” because the previous show at Gimnasio Gloria was thought to be the last ever one there.)

Octagon was signing autographs in Ciudad Juarez yesterday, only Octagon says it wasn’t him! Who goes around being a fake Octagon?

10/12 AAA TV Lineup (San Luis Potosi)

AAA TV (SUN) 10/12/2014 Domo San Luis, San Luis Potosi, San Luis Potosí
1) Dinastía, Faby Apache, Niño Hamburguesa, Pimpinela Escarlata vs Eterno, Mamba, Mini Abismo Negro, Taya Valkyrie
2) Angélico vs Jack Evans, Joe Lider, Hijo del Fantasma ©, Bengala, Aerostar, Súper Fly, Steve Pain [AAA CRUISER]
Hijo del Fantasma’s second defense
3) Monsther Clown, Murder Clown, Psycho Clown vs Averno, Chessman, Cibernético [street fight]
4) Myzteziz vs La Parka, Blue Demon Jr., Australian Suicide, Zorro, Pentagón Jr., Fénix, Daga [Copa Antonio Pena, lumberjack]
5) El Mesías & El Patrón Alberto vs el Hijo del Perro Aguayo & Texano Jr.

Air Date: 10/25 – and only one week, because it’s surprisingly only five matches? They do make it up in volume of people in those matches.

This show only slightly follows from recent TV, but Alberto wrestling in his first big match in front of his home town crowd was always going to be the big draw. Tickets went on sale already, run from 903 to 91 pesos ($67 to $7USD), and the two most expensive sections are already sold out (or at least not available on TicketMaster.) This entire show is the first step to Guerra de Titanes, and the main event should be the first step to Alberto/Texano.

past Copa Antonio Pena winners
2007: Charly Manson
2008: Mesias
2009: Cibernetico
2010: Aerostar
2011: Electroshock
2012: Texano Jr. (and then vacated by DQ)
2013: La Parka

La Parka has a good chance of winning this for a second time, though Myzteyz and Demon also figure to have chances to win (and Zorro could use a reason to exist; he’s barely been around this year.) It’s a weird assortment of guys, with Fenix, Daga, Pentagon and Suicide usually existing in a different universe than other four guys, and boosted out of the previous match to give other guys a shot.

The Hell Brothers being matched up with the Psycho Clowns give both sides something to do. It seems like a setup to a trios title match between now and December, depending on what the plans are for Blue Demon.

Twenty years from now, someone’s going to be looking thru AAA results in 2014 and be totally confused about us saying Steve Pain was ever gone. He gets the missing title shot from TripleMania (now just missing Eterno), and Bengala and Aerostar go from being sad about failing on their shots to getting another one right away. Such is life in AAA. If the cruiserweight title is meant to mean something, Fantasma should hold it for a lot longer, but it’s unclear if it’s supposed to mean anything. The match should be chaos. Aerostar & Super Fly will be at each other and Lider gets to do the prop violence he missed out on last multiman match.

Titan defeats Gran Guerrero, Thunder loses, DTU

CMLL (SUN) 09/28/2014 Arena Coliseo [@therealfredo, CMLL]
1) Robin & Sensei b Akuma & Espanto Jr. Robin & Sensei vs Akuma & Espanto Jr., on DailyMotion (posted by thecubsfan)
Tecnicos took 2/3.
2) Cancerbero, Metálico, Raziel b Cachorro, Star Jr., Starman Cachorro, Pegasso, Starman vs Cancerbero, Raziel, Skandalo, on DailyMotion (posted by thecubsfan)
Star Jr. (wearing Rey Cometa’s mask) replaced Pegasso, Metalico replaced Skandalo. Tecnicos took 1/3.
3) La Vaquerita, Princesa Sugehit, Skadi b La Comandante, La Seductora, Zeuxis La Vaquerita, Princesa Sugehit, Silueta vs La Comandante, La Seductora, Zeuxis, on DailyMotion (posted by thecubsfan)
Skadi replaced Silueta. Rudas took 2/3, Zexuis beating Vaquerita with La Roca in the third.
4) Fuego b Kamaitachi [lightning] Fuego vs Kamaitachi in a lightning match, on DailyMotion (posted by thecubsfan)
5) Ángel de Oro, Blue Panther, Rey Cometa DQ Cavernario, Hombre sin Nombre, Pólvora
Tecnicos took 1/3, with the rudos fouling Cometa and Cavernario.
6) Diamante Azul, Máximo, Rush b Euforia, Terrible, Thunder Diamante Azul, Maximo, Rush vs Euforia, Terrible, Thunder, on DailyMotion (posted by thecubsfan)
Tecnicos took 2/3, Diamante Azul beating Thunder and Rush beat Terrible with a dropkick.

Sounded like a very forgettable show. Star Jr. appeared to be a last second sub since he didn’t have a mask. (You can’t quite find Star Jr. masks on sale outside either.)

If you build a match at the Anniversary entirely around getting Thunder over as a dominating force, you probably shouldn’t have him losing for no particular reason 9 days later. Thunder’s going to fail, everyone but the people in charge of actually making decisions realize that at this point, and nine to eighteen months from now he’s going to be gone and how they booked him will be no matter…but there still will have been a lame match on the Anniversary show instead of something fun that could’ve been used to get over people who will actually matter to the promotion long term.

CMLL (SUN) 09/28/2014 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [@acogdl]
1) El Yaqui b El Tapatío
2) Acertijo & Évola b El Brillante & Javier Cruz
straight falls
3) Demonio Maya b Leo
4) Sky Kid & Smaker b Magnum & Ráfaga
Tecnicos took 1/3
5) La Sombra & Valiente DQ Ephesto & Mephisto
Tecnicos took 1/3 when Mephisto fouled Valiente. Valiente demanded a rematch.
6) Titán b Gran Guerrero
Titan took 2/3 to beat Gran Guerrero again.

Hooray for Titan continuing to win. He’s 8-3 in singles matches (at least in Mexico the US) this year. Meanwhile, Mephisto can’t just leave Valiente alone and that’s going to cost him eventually.

Rey Misterio Jr. was hanging around the Lucha Underground taping Saturday; Drago had a photo posted with him before taking it down. There’s no real change here: Rey’s going to be on the show as soon as he’s legally allowed and WWE is going to make him wait as long as possible to be legally allowed.

This weekend’s DTU tour has Paranoiko won the Consgrados championship from Ovettseen Aeroboy become #1 contender to the Alto Impacto title and Los Nerds not only taking their first loss, but being destroyed by Los Malkriados and their new leader Calibus.

Mil Mascaras won in his latest return to Tijuana. More interesting to me is the segunda, where Patera Azteca and Toxik went to a draw with Rayn Kid & Super Boy when the commission stopped the match. It’s not said why, and I’m interested to know what can get a match stopped in Tijuana. Semimain seemed to set up an XLAW tag title defense.

Lineup

CMLL (SUN) 10/05/2014 Arena Coliseo
1) Soberano Jr. & Starman vs Cholo & Disturbio
2) Eléctrico vs Demus 3:16, Pequeño Olímpico, Bam Bam, Stukita, Pierrothito, Mercurio, Shockercito, Último Dragoncito, Pequeño Nitro, Fantasy, Aéreo, Acero, Angelito[#1 Contenders, CMLL MINI]
winner gets a shot at Astral
3) Ángel de Oro, Blue Panther, Super Porky vs Hombre sin Nombre, Rey Escorpión, Vangellys
4) Diamante Azul, Rush, Volador Jr. vs Cavernario, Negro Casas, Shocker

I count 17 current CMLL minis: Astral (champ!), Pequeno Violencia (hurt), Pequeno Universo (fat) and the 14 guys in the match. Pequeno Universo should show up, still think ther’es a good shot he gets in the match. Olimpico was champion for two millennium and has to go thru a cibernetico to get another shot, that seems unfair. I’m betting on Demus.

That appears to be Cavernario’s first ever Arena Coliseo main event, which is neat. (He’s main evented some Tuesdays but no Sundays.) Cavernio’s ‘s probably stuck with Diamante Azul, which is not great. Can they trade Panther and Azul?

CMLL (SUN) 10/05/2014 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Reyko vs Relampago Azul
2) El Divino vs Thunder Boy
3) Smaker vs Infierno
4) Exterminador, Javier Cruz Jr., Leo vs Acertijo, Évola, Jocker
5) Dragon Lee, Maléfico, Titán vs Gallo, Mr. Águila, Sádico
6) La Sombra & Valiente vs Ephesto & Mephisto

Looks like another Mephisto/Valiente match?

09/27 Lucha Underground Results

Lucha Underground (SAT) 09/27/2014 Lucha Underground Arena, Boyle Heights, Los Angeles, California
1) Fenix (AAA) b Mariachi Loco
dark match?
2) Pimpinela Escarlata b Pentagón Jr.
Pentago issued an open challenge (in Spniash), specifically saying he wasn’t afriad of anyone male or female. Naturally, that meant Pimpi answered. Crowd was into the act. Possibly a dark match.
3) Mascarita Sagrada b Son Of Havoc
Ivelisse was with Havoc and took a tope from Mascarita
4) Mil Muertes b Drago (AAA)
a mystery luchador (maybe Fantasma?) was watching the match from the a hiding spot on the second floor and attacked Drago after the match. Catrina was with Mil as usual.
5) Sexy Star NC Chavo Guerrero Jr.
very short match before Pentagon Jr. got involved. Fenix made the save and he and Sexy cleared house.
6) Big Ryck b Prince Puma [street]
Ryck’s friends (Cortez Castro & Cisco B-Boy) got involved of course. Castro (Ricky Reyes) came up bleeding after a Puma dive onto everyone. Numbers (and a ladder) caught up to Puma. Mundo jumped off the second floor to make the save, but eventually hit Puma by mistake and the rudos beat them all up. Ryck chokeslamed Puma Mundo thru a table.

Air Date was announced as 11/19.

They’re back at it this afternoon. Rooting for Pentagon Jr. to break his losing streak.

They’ve also announced the next Saturday tapings – 10/04 and 10/18 – will now be 4 hour tapings (or two episodes.) The tapings for 10/25 and 10/26 are not on that upcoming schedule; unsure if they’re just been replaced by the double taping or if they’re just not looking to publicize them so far in advance. Either way, the new start date means they’ll have taped all of the first bunch of episodes before any of them air.

09/26 AAA TV Results (Zumpango) – Hell Brothers return

AAA TV (FRI) 09/26/2014 Domo Deportivo Noe Hernandez, Zumpango, Estado de México [AAA]
1) Niño Hamburguesa, Octagoncito, Pimpinela Escarlata b Carta Brava Jr., Mamba, Mini Psycho Clown
Mini Charly Manson replaced Mini Psycho Clown. Nino splashed Carta and Mamba for the win.
2) Australian Suicide & Faby Apache b Eterno & Sexy Star
Suicide beat Eterno with his tornillo shooting star press
3) Flamita b Steve Pain
unadvertised match, not listed in official results. Flamita won with Flame Fly.
4) Hijo del Fantasma © b Aerostar [AAA CRUISER]
Eterno was Fantasma’s second. Fantasma won with some help from Super Fly. Super Fly used Aerostar’s flame can on Aerostar to burn him after the match. First defense for Fantasma
5) Bengala, Blue Demon, Fénix b Pentagón Jr., Steve Pain, Villano IV
Steve Pain replaced Daga (right knee soreness.) Moved down a spot. Demon submitted Villano IV.
6) Angélico & Jack Evans NC Averno & Chessman
La Socidead ran in to attack. Blue Demon and Cibernetico went to make save, only Cibernetico attacked Demon instead. Cibernetico reformed the Hell Brothers w/ Averno & Cibernetico.
7) El Mesías & Myzteziz b el Hijo del Perro Aguayo & Texano
Mesias replaced Psycho Clown. La Mistica on Perro for the win.

Air Date: 10/04, 10/11

Averno replaces the currently detained Charly Manson in the Hell Brothers, who appear to be tweeners rather than straight rudos. It’s something for Cibernetico (and Demon) to do, and the AAA recap correctly notes that the group was very over last time. Also, this time Chessman already has a title so he won’t go after Cibernetico’s belt and screw everything up. (And maybe we’ve all gotten out of the Demon/Chessman match that still hasn’t happened.)

Not sure what to take out of the Flamita/Steve Pain match, except it was probably really good and probably won’t be airing. Flamita’s #1 priority is Dragon Gate, AAA wanted him back, and they were supposed to meet last week to see if something could be figured out. Maybe something where he works AAA when he’s not around Dragon Gate would work out for everyone. Steve Pain has been working random Mexican indy shows for the last couple of weeks, which really didn’t make sense with the reasons we thought he left AAA (needing to relocate back to California). Maybe something changed. Konnan welcomed Pain back to AAA, so maybe he’s back and really only missed a show or two after all.

They’ve turned Aerostar versus Super Fly up full blast. (That joke was weak.)

Nothing in particular built up for Heroes Inmortales. That lineup should be out in the next week or so and it will probably follow the storylines they’ve done int eh last few weeks without concluding anything.

Next AAA Mexico taping is 10/10. Lucha Underground resumes taping tonight.

Mephisto advances in Copa Jr.

photo by Alexis Salazar

CMLL (FRI) 09/26/2014 Arena México [CMLL]
1) Canelo Casas & Nitro b Esfinge & Oro Jr.
2) Boby Zavala, Okumura, Virus DQ Dragon Lee, Fuego, Tritón
Tecnicos took 2/3, Virus fouling Fuego.
3) La Sombra, Marco Corleone, Stuka Jr. b Kráneo, Mr. Águila, Rey Bucanero
Rey Bucanero replaced Vangellys on Monday. Aguila’s first Arena Mexico match since June. Tencicos took 1/3.
4) Felino & La Máscara b Shocker, Mephisto, Guerrero Maya Jr., Misterioso Jr., Tiger, Volador Jr. [Copa Jr., Copa Jr. VIP, seeding battle royal]
5) Mephisto b Guerrero Maya Jr. [Copa Jr., Copa Jr. VIP, eightfinal]
6) Shocker b Misterioso Jr. [Copa Jr., Copa Jr. VIP, eightfinal]
7) Volador Jr. b Tiger [Copa Jr., Copa Jr. VIP, eightfinal]
8) La Máscara b Felino [Copa Jr., Copa Jr. VIP, eightfinal]
9) Mephisto b Shocker [Copa Jr., Copa Jr. VIP, quarterfinal]
10) Volador Jr. b La Máscara [Copa Jr., Copa Jr. VIP, quarterfinal]
11) Mephisto b Volador Jr. [Copa Jr., Copa Jr. VIP, semifinal]
Mephisto advances to face next week’s block winner.
12) Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas, Último Guerrero b Atlantis, Máscara Dorada, Valiente
straight falls

Mephisto winning a block is random, though this tournament itself is pretty random. Theories about why Mephisto won:

  1. CMLL makes no sense, existence is meaningless (and I need another vacation)
  2. someone in the programming department finally noticed a post it note from Januaray – “feed Mephisto to Mistico La Nueva Era” – and decided it was time to get on that.
  3. name pulled out of hat

IWRG (WED) 10/01/2014 Arena Naucalpan
1) Aramis vs Black Angel
2) Alfa & Sky Ángel vs Atomic Star & Muerte Infernal
3) Dragón Celestial & Metaleon vs Hip Hop Man & Spartan
4) Emperador Azteca, Golden Magic, Kenshi Kabuki vs Danny Casas, Eterno, Oficial 911
5) Dr. Cerebro, Relámpago, Veneno vs Canis Lupus, Cien Caras Jr., Hijo de Máscara Año 2000

Pretty sure there’s a contest to make the least interesting Wednesday IWRG lineup. Danny Casas returns.

CMLL (FRI) 10/03/2014 Arena México
1) Astral & Stukita vs Demus 3:16 & Pierrothito
2) Cachorro, Dragon Lee, Fuego vs Cancerbero, Raziel, Virus
3) Dark Angel, Goya Kong, Marcela vs Amapola, Dalys, Zeuxis
4) Máscara Dorada, Titán, Valiente vs Kráneo, Mr. Águila, Terrible
5) La Sombra vs Rush, Super Porky, Máximo, Euforia, Delta, Stuka Jr., Puma [Copa Jr., Copa Jr. VIP, semifinal]
6) Mephisto, Thunder, Último Guerrero vs Diamante Azul, La Máscara, Volador Jr.

Hmmm. Rush isn’t winning, because Rush should be winning any sort of tournament like this but there’s really no point in throwing a tournament just for Rush to win. It’s kind of beneath him. Maximo/Mephisto would be a more evenly matched final, though again it’s strange why you’d running a tournament just to end up with Mephisto versus Maximo. So maybe Sombra? This is as pointless for Sombra to win as it is for Rush, but I’m not so sure the Sombra who was on vacation instead of the Anniversary show is going to be winning tournaments right now. Mephisto beating Sombra would be a pretty nice win for Mephisto and also a match that would be hard to set up unless you spontaneously invented a new tournament.

Speaking of vacations, tercera is Dark Angel’s return from the US. And the second is a really good match which won’t actually air on TV. Not sure why they’ve switched from Virus/Lee to Virus/Fuego.

DTU (SAT) 10/04/2014 Arena Querétaro
1) Angel Rebelde, Marsuk, Revolver Kid vs ?, Joven Maravilla, Maremoto Jr.
2) Electro Boy, Star Boy, Vengador vs Jimmy, Kevin, Tony

Copa VIP, AAA TV preview, quick links

Today’s CMLL show is headlined by Atlantis and Ultimo Guerrero in trios action. This is Ultimo’s first match in Arena Mexico unmasked. Copa VIP Jr. also begins with a block of Volador, Shocker, Mephisto, Felino, Misterioso, Tiger, La Mascara and Guerrero Maya. There’s no clear reason why it’s happening, which always makes it a little harder to pick a winner. Volador, La Mascara, Shocker, Mephisto are the favorites, in that order.

AAA tapes two weeks of TV tonight in Zumpango. Aerostar gets his much delayed title match versus Hijo del Fantasma in what could be a very good match regardless of the outcome (though we’re rooting for the upset Aerostar win.) The Angelico & Jack vs Averno & Chessman match could be very good as well. The main event is Myzteziz & Psycho Clown vs Perro & Texano. There’s no announced matches for Heroes Inmortales, sixteen days away. The AAA column in this week’s SuperLuchas said Copa Antonio Pena will be back, and maybe they’ll set up something more tonight.

1) Marduk b Extraño
Marduk wins in possible debuts for both guys. There was previously an Extrano in 2005 and 2009. There is a Marduk wrestling in Queretaro (and the same one in Guanajuato?) – it’s unclear if this is that guy.
