Violento Jack & Drastick Boy beat Makabre & Tony Rodriguez in the main event of DTU’s stop in Arena Roberto Paz. Sunday, Joven Maravilla & Maremoto Jr. took Juventud Rebelde & Perro Callejero II’s hair in Irapuato.
Saturday’s Leyendas Inmortales show pushed the Heavy Metal/Mascara Ano 2000 feud.
Alberto and Mesias were announced for the 01/06 Puerto Rico show.
Vince Russo says this week’s Lucha Underground had it’s biggest audience this week. There’s no one who’s less accurate about television ratings than Vince Russo, but it sure sounds good. (And, again, Lucha Underground’s biggest ever viewership would’ve happened on a Saturday, though he could mean the El Rey number.)
RobViper has a music video of 08/12 & 08/19/14 CMLL.
LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.
This week’s Super Libre had Black Man as in studio guest.
IWRG (WED) 12/17/2014 Arena Naucalpan
1) Vampiro Metálico vs Atomic Star
2) Galaxy & Sky Ángel vs Araña de Plata & Hip Hop Man
3) Imposible © vs Metaleón [IWRG IC Light]
Imposible 7th defense

Canis 1st defense, against usual partner Eterno.
5) Apolo Estrada Jr., Avisman, El Hijo del Diablo © vs Chicano, Danny Casas, X-Fly [EdM Trios]
Gringos 6th defense
Imposible/Metaleon should be good, Canis Lupus/Eterno will probably end up a brawl, but I have no idea how that main event is going to go.

5) Delta, Guerrero Maya Jr., Super Porky vs Ephesto, Kráneo, Mephisto
With an extra week to prepare, the Friday night shows have actual main event wrestlers. Or what passes for main event wrestlers in CMLL at the moment. CMLL’s roster is deep enough that they should have enough for two quality main events every Friday – it’s kind of what they’re trying to do on Tuesdays. It’s going to be tricker on those rare occasions someone in Tijuana uses CMLL wrestlers.
The Okumura/Gallo feud will not die. For some reason.
Dragon Rojo Jr. replaces Mascara Dorada on the start of Saturday Coliseo shows. Those show start at 7:30pm local, so people going to them will be wandering out into a bad neighborhood around 10pm at night. Cheap tickets though, gives you more reason not to bring much money.
CMLL (SUN) 12/21/2014 Arena México

No sign of any program here during the holiday season (The Cholo/Ramstein vs Star Jr./Soberano Jr. one seems permanently moved to Tuesdays.) At least the tercera and fourth should be good.
