Bonus midnight post to mention you’ve still got about 10 hours to buy the Chikara Sampler. GO DO IT.
IWRG (THU) 10/08 Arena Naucalpan
1) Keshin Black vs Halcon 2000
2) Jack & Miss Gaviota vs Epidemia & Heavy Boy
3) Eragon vs Hijo del Signo
4) Bushi, Exodia, Hombre Bala Jr. vs Arlequin Amarillo, Arlequin Rojo, Gringo Loco
5) Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro vs Barba Roja, Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Pirata Morgan Jr.
Main probably should be a title match, but it’s not listed as one yet and AK47 wasn’t around last week to give the challengers the non-title win. Arlequins do reappear, a mild upset. Not sure if Hombre Bala turned when I wasn’t paying attention, or if really deosn’t matter at all. Also don’t know why that singles match going. Do know this has to be a cheap card to put on, labor wise.
CMLL (FRI) 10/09 Arena Mexico
1) Delta & Diamante vs Disturbio & Escorpion
2) Dark Angel, Lluvia, Marcela vs Amapola, Princesa Sujei, Zeuxis
3) Máximo vs Misterioso II [lightning]
4) La Máscara, Sagrado, Valiente vs Dragon Rojo Jr., Sangre Azteca, Virus
5) La Sombra, Máscara Dorada, Volador Jr. vs Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto
6) Black Warrior, Shocker, Strong Man vs Naito, Shigeo Okumura, Yujiro
Main event is an odd way to debut Strong Man. No Limit should be winning, and Strong Man should have people to throw around. As is, they’re the better matches, but the top 2 rudo teams kinda should be switched (with Warrior going with Yujiro.)
CMLL (SUN) 10/11 Arena Coliseo
1) Molotov & Principe vs Inquisidor & Semental
2) Leono, Metálico, Tony Rivera vs Apocalipsis, Pólvora, Ramstein
3) Eléctrico, Mascarita Dorada, Pequeño Olímpico vs Pequeño Damian 666, Pequeño Violencia, Pierrothito
4) La Máscara, Máscara Dorada, Sagrado vs Felino, Heavy Metal, Sangre Azteca
5) Blue Panther, Shocker, Strong Man vs Atlantis, Mr. Niebla, Último Guerrero
Strong Man all over the place. Speaking of people coming in, this week’s Ras de Lona apparently says Steele is returning. Also, I saw a link for a Reforma article talking to Super Porky about his CMLL return, but it was behind their subscriber only window.
CMLL (SUN) 10/11 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Thunder Boy & Virgo vs Idolo & Metatrón
2) Leon Blanco & Samurai vs Egipcio & Magnum
3) Horus & Metal Blanco vs Angel del Mal & Asesino Negro
4) Ángel de Oro & Ángel de Plata vs Euforia & Nosferatu
5) Máximo, Toscano, Volador Jr. vs Ray Mendoza Jr., Terrible, Texano Jr.
On the undercard, we haven’t seen Egipico here in a year, and perhaps that’s a relevos match? Main event should have some Maximo/Texano issues.
IWRG (SUN) 10/11 Arena Naucalpan
1) Imperial vs Extrano
2) Eragon & Star Boy vs Maldito Jr. & Samoa
3) Gemelo Fantastico I & Gemelo Fantastico II vs Fantasma de la Ópera & Gringo Loco
4) Bushi, Negro Navarro, Trauma I vs Avisman, Fantasma de la Ópera, Veneno
5) Chico Che, Exodia, Rigo vs Black Terry, Cerebro Negro, Dr. Cerebro
Again, main event probably should be a title match, and maybe it will be in a week.
SuperLuchas also has the lineups for December Gudalajara shows. I usually don’t bother with lineups that far in advance, because it’s never worth taking lineups too seriously until the week before. These are a little extra notable because it’s their annual Lucha Libre Festival, GDL’s answer to the DF’s Expo. Last year, CMLL ran against the AAA show, but they’re contributing the Friday night show this year. (Main event is a multi-man cage match for a singles title. Dunno how that actually works. Also, since they still may run a loaded show that at ACG on Sunday.)
Saturday is the indy show (where it looks like a Coco will lose his mask), and Sunday is the show that we’d talked about being Sexi vs Fabi. In fact, it’s listed as Sexi & Billy vs Fabi & Aero. The rest of the show is filler stuff – it’s a full AAA show, but it looks more like a spot show than a TV taping, and not even close to a major show lineup. Main is Wagner/Parka vs Silver/Mesias in what looks like a relevos increible match, but there’s nothing of any consequence in the undercard. This is not the Guerra de Titanes show after all.
