09/28 CMLL Arena Mexico Anniversary Show Live Notes

This should automatically appear on the site around 6 PM. If I’m around and there are results, I’ll be editing this live with whatever. If you want to discuss the show, comments go below.

There’s live radio coverage of the show on the internet, starting at 7:30.

8:30 Update – the show should be starting, but if you can’t wait to find out next week’s main event…

As of 9:20 CST

On Now
6) Mistico vs Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Villano V, Dr. Wagner Jr., Ultimo Guerrero, Hijo de Lizmark, Blue Panther, Atlantis [cage, hair, mask]
Order of entrances

Villano V
Blue Panther
Hijo de Lizmark
Atlantis
Ultimo Guerrero
Dr. Wagner Jr.
Perro Aguayo Jr.
Mistico – starts to get booed (maybe 65/35 for him) and the announcers talk over it.

Mistico big plancha – CHECK!

We’re into the time killing while waiting for the cue to split.

Order of exit
1) Villano V!
the guy who isn’t Julio Cesar and isn’t Valiente is sounding like he’s going to run out of oxygen at any time.
2) Atlantis, leaving UG behind
3) Dr. Wagner Jr.

Mistico big dive #2

4) Ultimo Guerrero
5) Mistico

Perro Jr., Lizmark Jr. and Blue Panther remain. It appears it will be a triangle match from here, which is different – Babe Richard is entering the cage.

6) Perro Aguayo wins his way out.

Holy carp, Blue Panther vs Lizmark Jr. really is your anniversary main event. I hope CMLL doesn’t make me very sad in the next five minutes.

7) BLUE PANTHER MAKES LIZMARK JR SUBMIT!

Lizmark Junior’s stats:
Name: Juan Carlos Baños
Experience: 16 years
Hometown: Acapulco, Guerrero

I’ll post show reports links here if they turn up in the next couple of hours. Otherwise, see you tomorrow and thanks for reading.

09/28: Anniversary Show pre-notes

Not much news besides stuff directly relating to the Anniversary show.

(SuperLuchas) Mistico is hurt (again) (again) Sounds like he was knocked out after a head scissors gone bad with Efesto in Toluca. Mistico was/is hospitalized but wanted to leave at SuperLuchas last report. There’s no word if he’ll make the anniversary show but I suppose he will.

I know I should be more concerned about, but this story is quite repetitive. It doesn’t really matter if Mistico should or should not wrestle, he’ll wrestle and probably win. You hope he gets some time off and he may or may not.

Everyone’s previewing the anniversary show. That’s Ovaciones’ story, NotiMex writes the usual, ESTO gets quotes from most everyone (and says it’ll be a 7 minute delay before people can leave),

Luchas 2000 #387 hypes the main event by having everyone take their masks off for photos. (Perro Jr. is unable to remove his hair.)

ESTO talks to Villano V, who says none of the Villano children will be allowed to use the Villano name. They’ll have have to make their own names, just like they did not use the name of their father, Ray Mendoza. Villano V is disappointed because many thinks he’ll lose his mask, but is using it as motivation.

ESTO makes quick mention of the TNA in Arena Monterrey show on 12/14. Interestingly, they say Mr. Aguila and Perro Aguayo Jr. are going to work the show (facing two Americans) and Mesias is still scheduled for it. That’s gotta be a problem.

Not sure if there will be live coverage on the site, but I’ll post something for comments at the least. I’ve got some backloaded recaps that ought to be posted as well.

CMLL Anniversary Predictions

CMLL (FRI) 09/28 Arena Mexico
1) Metalico, Stuka Jr., Valiente vs Euforia, Loco Max, Nosferatu
2) Dark Angel, Luna Magica, Marcela vs Amapola, Hiroka, Princesa Sujei
3) La Sombra, Ultimo Dragon, Volador Jr. vs Misterioso Jr., Texano Jr., Virus
4) Alex Koslov, Sagrado, Sombra vs Ephesto, Sangre Azteca, Toscano
5) Marco Corelone, Negro Casas, Rey Bucanero vs Averno, Mephisto, Olimpico
6) Mistico vs Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Villano V, Dr. Wagner Jr., Ultimo Guerrero, Hijo de Lizmark, Blue Panther, Atlantis [cage, hair, mask]

As noted when this card came out, there’s nothing very interesting about this card. Various important people are putting their mask (or hair) on the line, but there’s not much chance of them losing. The main event will draw a full house by itself, but CMLL is too aware of that and just threw together a bunch of names in unappealing matches for the rest of the show.

Still, might as well throw some guesses together on the stuff that matters. SuperLuchas ran a poll to guess the loser, and Villano V ran away with it. Lizmark Jr. is second, and those are the two safe bets – I’m 95% sure it’ll be one or the other.

As Steve Sims pointed out on Figure Four Daily, figuring out the winner is more interesting. Someone gets to put a famous mask on their resume forever and gets the post-mask loss program for a couple of months.

Who do you have as the last two? Who’s going to lose their mask? I’ll put my guesses after the link.

09/27: Wagner, Lizmark, Reynosa

Bob Barnett quotes newspapers which say Dr. Wagner Jr. is ticked at management and wants out if things don’t change. He may have a case, but going to the press the day before the biggest show of the year is not the most classy of moves.

Ovaciones talks to Lizmark Jr., who vows to go after the injuries of his opponents in the cage match to defeat them. He says this is his sixth cage match.

AAA (SUN) 09/30 Arena Coliseo Reynosa [rfc]
1) Rocker Boy vs Bufalo
2) Arizona III & Luminoso vs Chamaco Ortiz & Rey Patriota
3) Gatito Volador & Mascarita Sagrada vs Mini Hator & Mini Psicosis
4) Asterisco, Hijo de Yuma, Latin Heart vs Corazon de Bario, Imagen I, Imagen II
5) Hijo del Santo & LA Park vs Konan Big & Super Parka

Super Amigos“, a documentary about the likes of Super Barrio using masks to gain attention for their causes – I wrote a note about this back in May – airs Friday in LA as part of the National Geographic All Roads Film Festival, and next Wednesday in Harrisburg VA, as part of their Latino Film Festival.

Guerreros del Ring #106 has Perro Aguayo Jr. taking a bite out of Mistico’s mask.

In Royal Oak, Michigan, IWR is bringing in LA Park for a show/DVD taping on 10/14. A DVD with highlights from previous shows with lucha types is coming out on 10/02 from Big Vision Entertainment.

09/25 Coliseo Results

CMLL.com

CMLL (TUE) 09/25 Arena Coliseo
1) Messala & Zayco b Astro Boy & Sensei
2) Fire, Pequeno Violencia, Pierrothito b Bam Bam, Electrico, Fantasy
3) Fabian el Gitano, Tony Rivera, Valiente b Arkangel, Nitro, Skandalo
4) Eclipse, Ogun, Satanico b Felino, Leono, Mascara Purpura
5) Dos Caras Jr., Dr. Wagner Jr., Negro Casas DQ Terrible, Villano III, Villano V

Guessing from the CMLL.com pictures again. Leono replaced Maximo, which derails his feud with Ogun for this week. Wagner looked to be suffering from a low blow in the final picture. It’s not clear where it’s from, but V5 would fit.

As I type this, Blue Panther is doing a live chat on elUniversal.com

10/07 AAA TV Lineup (Pena Memorial Show)

Previous: 09/13 (Dolores, Hidalgo), 09/16 (Guadalajara, VdE), 09/30 (Tabasco, lineup only)

This is the 1st Annual Pena Memorial Show.

AAA TV (SUN) 10/07 Toreo de Cuatro Caminos [notiAAA]
1) La Parkita, Mascarita Divina, Octagoncito vs Mini Charly Manson, Mini Chessman, Mini Histeria
2) Cinthia Moreno, Mascarita Sagrada 2007, Pimpinela, Super Fly vs Billy Boy, Cassandro, Fabi Apache, Mini Abismo Negro [lumberjack]
3) Alebrije, Elegido, Octagon vs Histeria, Mr. Niebla, Psicosis [lights out]
4) Crazy Boy, Joe Lider, Juventud Guerrera vs ?, Extreme Tiger, Halloween [extreme]
5) La Parka Jr. vs Kenzo Suzuki, Intocable, Scorpio Jr., Super Porky, Laredo Kid, X-Pac, Charly Manson, Ron Killings, Alan Stone, ?, ?? [Torneo Copa Antonio Pena]
6) Chessman, Cibernetico, Latin Lover vs Abismo Negro, Mesias, Zorro [dome cage]

Approx Air Date
Mexico: 10/14
US: 11/03

I can only assume they wanted to put as many gimmick matches as possible on this show to honor Anotnio Pena. And the obviously wanted to get as many people on the card as possible.

They must be trying to amortize the cost of the dome cage by running it so often. Or they’re just doing it to spite me, whatever. (OR! They just don’t want to do any singles main events which aren’t Cibernetico vs Mesias and they’re not doing that for a while.)

The fifth match is a battle royal, with the final two going to pinfall. My wild guess is the mystery guys are names of the past rather than names that are jumping.

There’s 85% chance the mystery guy in the 4th match is Nicho, and a 15% chance it’s someone random (since everyone knows it’ll be Nicho) only for Nicho to come out during the match and join the team anyway. If you care about the Mexican Powers, the Extreme Tiger turn seems even less set up than the Zorro turn. (It hasn’t happened yet, right?)

He’s not really named Mascarita Sagrada 2007, I’m just doing it to separate him from the two ones we already know. I suppose it could be a new one or one of the old ones back in the gimmick – won’t be able to say until he’s on TV, and even that’ll be iffy.

Announced Upcoming Tapings
10/18: Aguascalientes
10/20: Orizaba

09/26: Neza, IWRG, Guadalajara, Monterrey

CMLL.com

Ovaciones has an extended interview with Halloween. He says he needed a change – he felt he wasn’t doing all he could in CMLL and it was time to split. Halloween revealed his new Familia de Tijuana would be Nicho & Extreme Tiger. I was sure Extreme Tiger was going to end up with Halloween, but I think I neglected to write it down.

I wonder who they’ll get when Nicho no-shows.

CMLL.com hasn’t posted Tuesday results, but it has posted Sunday’s. In the women’s trios match, Amapola was disqualified for putting her feet on the ropes for a pin. I know that’s illegal, but I’ve never heard of a DQ for it. In the semimain, Sangre Azteca ended up with a face full of blood after a Corelone high kick.

CMLL (SUN) 09/23 Arena Neza [thegladiatores]
1) Super Tri b Karonte Jr.
2) Freezbe & Nakashima b Miedo & Spider Black
3) Bam Bam, Gitano, Pequeno Olimpico DQ Mini Halloween, Mr. Aguilita, Pequeno Damian 666
4) Angel Azteca Jr., Leono, Maximo b Artillero, Super Comando, Virus
5) Alex Koslov, Shocker, Volador Jr. b Misterioso II, Sangre Azteca, Ultimo Guerrero

Lots of Gitano’s bloody turn on Mini Olimpico at the link if you didn’t see them yesterday. New crackpot theory: Gitano is the guy about to be Mini Black Warrior, who’s going to beat Mini Olimpico for the title and then drop it to Mascarita Sagrada (over the course of five or more years.) Whomever Gitano is, he’s not around this week yet:

CMLL (THU) 09/27 Arena Neza [Dr_landru]
1) Molotov & Sombra de Plata vs Caligula & Messala
2) Astro Boy, Mascara Purpura, Starman vs Euforia, Nosferatu, Super Comando
3) Dr. Wagner, La Mascara, Rey Bucanero vs Atlantis, Olimpico, Ultimo Guerrero

IWRG (SUN) 09/16 Arena Naucalpan [thegladiatores]
1) Akuma & Judas el Traidor b Espia & Latin Brother
2) Golem & Samba b Nemesis IWRG & Puma King
3) Black Terry, Dr. Muerte, Macho II b Fantasma de la Opera, Tortuguillo Ninja I, Tortuguillo Ninja II
4) Freelance, Negro Navarro, Ultraman Jr. b Kai, Sasaki, Yamato
5) Bogeman, Felino, Mistico b Black Warrior, Cerebro Negro, Enfermero Jr.

They’re clearly building a Cerebro Negro/Bogeman feud.

IWRG (THU) 09/20 Arena Naucalpan [thegladiatores
1) Latin Brother b Akumma
2) Golem, Kid Tiger, Samba b Comando Gama, Pandemonium, Puma King
3) Macho II, Sasaki, Yamato b Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro [super libre]
4) Cien Caras Jr., Hijo de Cien Caras, Mascara Ano 2000 Jr. b Cyborg, Nitro, Xibalba
5) Bogeman, Rayman, Sagrado b Black Warrior, Damian 666, Mr. Aguila

Kai (sub Macho II) and Captian Muerte (sub Nitro) both missed the show due to injuries. They seem to be building up trios feuds in those matches so hopefully things won’t get derailed. Warrior snuck in a foul on Ray Man in the main event.

IWRG (THU) 09/27 Arena Naucalpan
1) Latin Brother vs Comando Gama
2) Golem & Simbolo vs Judas el Traidor & Rockero del Diablo
3) Samba, Tortuguillo Ninja I, Tortuguillo Ninja II vs Nemesis IWRG, Puma King, Sasaki
4) Centauro, Fantasma de la Opera, Ultraman vs Black Terry, Enfermero Jr., Yamato
5) Bogeman, Negro Navarro, Volador Jr. vs Black Warrior, Cerebro negro, Nitro

IWRG (SUN) 09/30 Arena Naucalpan
1) Golden & Kid Tiger vs Paramedico & Puma King
2) Fantasma de la Opera, Tortuguillo Ninja I, Tortuguillo Ninja II vs Judas el Traidor, Pandemonium, Yamato
3) Coco Blanco, Coco Verde, Cocolores vs Ofical 9111, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro
4) ?, Bogeman, Ultraman Jr. vs Cerebro Negro, Hijo de Cien Caras, Nitro

CMLL (SUN) 09/30 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Estrella de Jalisco & Golden vs Danger (Guadalajara) & Destroyer (Guadalajara)
2) Metatron & Oro II vs Infierno & Mr. Trueno
3) Leon Blanco, Leono, Magnum vs Malefico, Mascara Magica, Toxico4) Alex Koslov, Gallo, Maximo vs Ephesto, Mephsito, Toscano
5) Mistico vs Averno [NWA MIDDLE]

CMLL (TUE) 10/02 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Thunder Boy vs Milenio
2) Carlo Roggi vs Evola
3) Idolo vs Egipcio
4) Metal Blanco vs Rey Trueno
5) Lider vs Asesino Negro
6) Leono & Maximo vs Ephesto & Toscano
7) Rayman vs Cien Caras Jr.
8) Alex Koslov & Blue Panther vs Averno & Mephisto

Still no GDL results, but I think it’s safe to assume:

CMLL (SUN) 09/16/2007 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
3) Dos Caras Jr. b Universo 2000 [CMLL HEAVY]

CMLL (TUE) 09/18/2007 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
7) Rey Bucanero b Ultimo Guerrero [CMLL LH]

We would’ve heard about a title change by now.

AAA (SUN) 09/30 Arena Coliseo Monterrey [RFC]
1) Criminal & Virtual X vs Baby Fox & Dr. Cianuro
2) Aguila Extrema & Guerrero Blanco vs Mercurio & the Beast
3) Rey Infernal vs Monje Negro Jr. [bull terrier]
4) Rey Cometa & Super Fly vs Pirata Morgan & Sangre Chicana
5) Alebrije, Elegido, Pimpinela Escarlata vs Antifaz, Casandro, Monsther

AULL (SAT) 09/29 Arena Lopez Mateos
1) Poseidon & Rey Krystal vs Chico del Barrio & Zykoman
2) Aguila Guerrera, Star Cat, Yakuza vs Kivlan, Militar, Sol de Oriente
3) Eidermia, Heavy Boy, Psicopata vs Epitafio, Trauma I, Trauma II
4) Alex Koslov, King Star Tiger, Robin Maravilla vs Negro Navarro, Onita Santana, Texano Jr.
5) Blue Panther & Hijo del Perro Aguayo vs Dos Caras Jr. & Hijo de Lizmark [ri]

This would be Panther, Perro and Lizmark’s first match since the cage match. Villano III, Atlantis, Wagner, and UG turn up first in Coliseo on Sunday (as do Perro and Panther, but not Lizmark), and Mistico’s off in Guadalajara for the weekend. Would CMLL have Lizmark Jr. lose his mask on Friday and not appear at any of their shows till next Friday but show up an AULL event?

MedioTiempo talked to Atlanits, Ultimo Guerrero, Lizmark about the cage match – they seem to be going by unit on this, so one with Wagner, Panther and Mistico should turn up later today or tomorrow. Lizmark Jr. mentions he has a right knee ligament injury which would make climbing the cage rough. I don’t think that’s going to be an issue.

Atlantis and Ultimo Guerrero also appear in El Siglo de Torreon talking about the match.

Etceter writes about Santo’s film and comics career.

09/25: Puebla, Minis, Apache, Monterrey

Arturo Rivera’s Ovaciones column says X-Pac also has a sciatic nerve issue, and Gran Apache can not walk right now. Arturo says AAA will be back in Texas in three weeks, this time in Austin. (No building mentioned.)

(link may not work tomorrow, but there just because it’s nice to have a working link to the static page.)

Black Terry Jr. posted photos from Arena Neza. What’s strange is the minis match was Mini Damian, Mini Halloween, Mini Mr. Aguila vs Mini Olimpico, Bam Bam, and Mini Gitano. Mini Gitano appears to be a new guy (and not Mini Halloween), who promptly turned on Mini Olimpico. Confusing.

AAA (SUN) 09/23 Arena Coliseo Monterrey [RFC]
1) Aguila Extrema & Dranser b Dr. Cianuro & Virutal X
2) Mercurio b Criminal
3) Baby Fox & Tigre Cota b Mascarita Divina & Ramses (Monterrey)
4) Guerrero Negro Jr. & Rey Infernal b Monje Negro Jr. & Sangre Chicana
5) Alan Stone, Ricky Marvin, Zorro b Antifaz, Cuervo, Psicosis II

Zorro turned on Alan, but that team still won.

CMLL (MON) 09/24 Arena Puebla [hugo999]
1) Ares, Espiritu Maligno, Mr. Rafaga b Forajido, King Jaguar, Zigma
2) Legionario, Lestat, Tigre Rojo b Black Terry, Fuerza Chicana, Negro Navarro
3) La Mascara, La Sombra, Maximo b Misterioso II, Texano Jr., Virus
4) Terrible, Villano III, Villano V DQ Atlantis, Olimpico, Sangre Azteca
5) Dr. Wagner Jr. b Hijo de Lizmark [UWA HEAVY]

Down one fall already, Atlantis was left alone with Villano V in the ring and fouled him. Not sure why Olimpico replaced UG.

Lestat, I remember, was an unmasked guy way back in Guapos U, and I’ve noticed hugo’s pictures showing a masked Lestat guy here. I thought they were the same guy – is my memory faulty?

indy (SUN) 09/30 Arena Coliseo Reynosa [LGB @ LMDLL]
1) Hijo del Santo & LA Park vs Konnan Big & Super Parka

AAA (MON) 10/01 Domo de la Feria [Am.Com.Mx]
1) Mascarita Divina & Octagoncito vs Mini Charly Manson & Mini Chessman
2) Bobby Lee Jr, Rey Leon, Sku vs Fuerza K-9, Krimen, Maquina Infernal
3) Elegido, Intocable, Zorro vs Alan Stone, Scorpio Jr., Super Calo
4) Fabi Apache & Martha Villalobos vs Mujer Demente & Rossy Moreno
5) Chessman & Cibernetico vs Head Hunter I & Mesias

Medio Tiempo talks to Perro Jr. and Villano V about the cage match. V5 plans to stay in the match as long as Atlantis and Ultimo do, just in case he can beat either of them with the mask. If they leave, he’s out of there.

La Aficion (Milenio) has a generic preview of the anniversary show. At least they spell Blue Panther correct, as opposed to ticketmaster.

If you can’t quite make it to Mexico City but find yourself in Panama on Friday, there’s lucha libre at Fantastic Casino.

The George Eastman House in Rochester, NY has an exhibition called Lucha Libre! Masked Mexican Wrestlers from now till 01/27/08. It’s part of a set of exhibits about male and female appearance.

09/24: New CMLL Minis?, Coliseo, AAA in Ft. Worth

CMLL.com

On CMLL main TV show this weekend, the promotion announced Mascarita Sagrada (presumably the one which was just in AAA and current Mexican Mini champ) and Mini Black Warrior are coming in. I have no records of a Mini Black Warrior, so the easy guess is Mini Halloween’s getting a new gimmick.

CMLL (SUN) 09/23 Arena Coliseo [ova]
1) Caligula & Messala b Astro Boy & Molotov
2) Super Nova, Tigre Blanco, Tony Rivera b Arkangel, Nitro, Skandalo
3) India Sioux, Lady Apache, Sahori DQ Amapola, La Nazi, Mima Shimoda
4) Alex Koslov, Marco Corelone, Rey Bucanero b Eclipse, Sangre Azteca, Toscano
5) Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Mr. Aguila, Terrible DQ Atlantis, Olimpico, Ultimo Guerrero

Ultimo fouled Perro in the main event. In the womens match, the rudas got DQed when it seemed certain they’d lose.

CMLL (SUN) 09/30 Arena Coliseo [cmll]
1) Bam Bam, Fantasy vs Mr. Aguilita, Fire
2) Lady Apache, Marcela, Luna Magica vs Medussa, Rosa Negra, Seductora
3) Volador Jr., La Mascara, Sombra vs Satanico, Okumura, Ohara
4) Dr. Wagner Jr., Blue Panther, Rey Bucnaero vs Black Warrior, Villano III, Villano V vs Atlantis, Ultimo Guerrero, Olimpico vs Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Terrible, Texano Jr. [torneo]

2) Billy Boy, Pegasso, Super Fly b Espiritu, Histeria, Mr. Condor
3) La Parka Jr., Laredo Kid, Octagon b Cuervo, Fuerza Guerrera, Ozz
4) Charly Manson & Chessman (w/Ciberntico) b Kenzo Suzuki & X-Pac (w/Konnan)

Histeria, Cuervo, and X-Pac replaced Gran Apache, Escoria and Mesias respectively.

CMLL (THU) 09/27 Arena Olimpico Laguna de Gomez Palacio

CMLL AZTECA (WED) 10/03 Arena Xalapa [Diario de Xalapa]

3) La Sombra, Mascara Purpura, Volador Jr. vs Misterioso II, Sangre Azteca, Texano Jr.
4) Black Warrior & Mistico vs Averno & Dr. Wagner Jr.

That’s gonna suck for Mistico. More Brazo’s are going to suck for everyone else.

Magazines
Super Luchas #231 hypes the cage match
Super Luchas Grafico #25 has Alex Koslov and WWE Unforgiven.

Political party PAN will sponsor lucha libre shows in 15 states to promote the parties’ issues.

Dominican Republic wrestler Jack Veneno is profiled by Listin Diario. It’s good, though I always wonder about a bit of fictionalization in these. The best story is how his first title match versus Ric Flair ended in DQ when Santa Claus ran-in.

An unnamed luchador is being sued for damaging a promoter’s car. Well, his real name is given, but strangely not his luchador name. Apparently, he was late for a show where he was supposed to be in a main event with Octagoncito. The promoter fined him, and the wrestler allegedly caused 40 000 pesos damage to the promoter’s Nissan Sentra. ($3,642)

IWRG’s redesigned homepage looks completely broken on Firefox (though it’s fine on Internet Explorer) and none of the links work. Perhaps they’ll fix this.

09/23: Accion, DeportTV

Ovaciones continues it’s interviews with cage match participants by talking to Atlantis. He’s definitely prefers getting out of the cage ASAP over settling a feud with someone. He also says Perro Jr. would be good if learned how to wrestle. He’s a bit worried about Villano V vowing revenge for his brother and thinks Ultimo may be the best guy in the match, but hopefully they’re on the same side.

Accion’s CMLL highlights listed from all three tag matches, but mostly from the final. Dives and finish. Warrior got beat clean with La Msitica, so he’s got no argument to get in this cage match. As of right now, he’s still not in according to what’s on CMLL.com, but it’s something to watch during the week.

AAA’s clips surprisingly had Rey Cometa, Super Fly, Aero Star vs Scorpio, Zumbido and Decnnis – strange (and good) for a non-main event to air. This was here for the dives, Aero Star, Super Fly, Zumbido and Rey Cometa gets highlighted. Aero Star’s mask gets torn, and Decnis eventually gets an inverted stump puller for the win. That’s quite a hold.

DeporTV had clips from all 2-5 on Tuesday’s show. Rudos appeared to win the segunda. The tercera highlights were all Valiente – he did a top rope tope con giro and the double jump moonsault as a dive fake, but then got pinned clean by a Mr. Mexico powerbomb. ODD. In the same main, Maximo went wild with butt bumps for everyone, giving Ogun one for good measure. That ticked off Ogun. Maximo accidentally got Ogun with a dive, and you can totally understand why Ogun would be ticked at him. Ogun attacked Maximo and was celebrating with the rudos after the match, so that’s a done deal. In the main event, Dos Jr. used an umbrella on Damian. Otherwise, it seemed like your usual Coliseo main event. Sure looked like the tecnicos won this one too, as the clips ends with all the tecnicos rolling up all the rudos.
