11/07 ECLL – the money they used on flying in Horus from Tijauna probably could’ve gone to fixing the horrible lighting. It’s actually not the usual bit of not enough light, but the white balance is way off on the main camera.
CMLL (SUN) 11/07 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [Fuego en el Ring]
1) Astaroth b Metalik
2) El Divino & Samurai b Ebola & Malefico
3) Fantasy, Meteoro, Último Dragoncito b Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Olímpico, Pequeño Universo 2000
4) Arkángel de la Muerte, Hooligan, Virus b Delta, Diamante, Valiente
5) La Máscara, Místico, Toscano b Atlantis, Rey Bucanero, Último Guerrero
Mistico get La Mistico on Ultimo Guerrero to win the fan appreciation main event.
Meteoro and Mini Nitro replaced Shockercito & Pierrothito.
Samurai and Ebola have agreed to their hair match, though no date is given. Maybe next Sunday?
IWRG FIL (TUE) 11/16 Arena Naucalpan
1) Rolling Boy & Snake Extreme vs Enfasis & Muerte de Plata
2) Mascarita de Oro & Zafiro vs Galeno Kick & Star Myg
3) Flama Infernal, Sky Angel, Volaris vs Fulgor I, Fulgor II, Muerte Infernal
4) DVD, Guizmo, Tonatiuh vs Fresero Jr., Mariscal, Soldado de la Muerte
5) Alan Extreme, Bugambilia del Norte, Centurión, Comando Negro, Dinamic Black, Eterno, Guerrero 2000, Keshin Black vs Angel Negro Jr., Guardian de la Noche, Maligno, Menfis, Oass, Raydent, Rayito Mendoza, Shar Boy [Torneo FIL IWRG, cibernetico]
AAA TV (SUN) 11/07 Centro de Convenciones de Tlalnepantla [The Gladiatores, AAA’s Facebook]
1) Mascarita Divina & Octagoncito b Mini Histeria & Mini Psicosis
2) Naguya & Oyuki b Fabi Apache & Mari Apache
3) Aerostar, Extreme Tiger, Jack Evans b Billy Boy, Chris Stone, Decnnis
4) Joe Lider, Nicho el Millionario, Ozz b Damián 666, El Illegal, Halloween
5) Chessman, Hernandez, Zorro b Cibernético, El Mesías, La Parka Jr.
Parka & Cibernetico had issues again during the main event, but they directly cause the finish. Instead, it was Skull Mask, still without a name. Ciber had Zorro in the choke, got distracted, and got hit by Zorro’s cane many times. La Sociedad hit the ring after the match (the third time this bit this show) and Los Bizarros made the save. Cibernetico refused again to make peace with Parka and promised the Bizarros would show AAA how to really fight a war on the next taping.
AAA sent an article around hyping up the mystery rudo in the semimain. It turned out to be “El Illegal”, and the joke after the match was Joaquin Roldan had no idea who this guy was. No one does, but since he’s wearing a Puerto Rician flag mask and has a lot of visible tattoos, it probably shouldn’t be hard to narrow the guy down from WWC. He pinned Lider in a hardcore match. La Socidedad ran in after the match to beat up the tecnicos more, but the AAA locker room cleared out the ring. This included Damian taking a clothesline from Joaquin Roldan. Joaquin paid Nicho and Lider more money to take out Socidedad, and threatened the Perros with a rematch with the Psycho Circus.
Edit: PRwrestling has an article on El Chicano debuting last night as Illegal, so there you go. Genickbruch has his history, if you feel like reading German.
Jack pinned Billy Boy with a roll up, but the Militia laid out the tecnicos with chairs after the match.
After Oyuki accidentally missile dropkicked Naguya, Mari got Oyuki with a ‘rana. However, Tirantes kicked Mari, turned over the pin, and counted it for the ruda. The Japanese sisters walked off with Fabi’s Mixed Tag belt and Mari’s Reina de Reinas belts.
Octagoncito pinned Mini Histeria in the opener.
Next taping for this show is 11/18 in IWRG’s home arena. They have a Premier taping on 11/15.
DTU (FRI) 11/05 Arena 11 de Julio [Estrellas del Ring]
??) Aero Boy & Paranoiko ?? Dement Xtreme & Violento Jack
3) Ashley, Lolita, Ludark, Megan b Chica Tormenta, Keira, Sexy Lady, Vaquerita
4) Daga b ? [Campeonato de Alto Rendimiento DTU]
5) Taubco b Loco Metalico [Campeonato de Alto Rendimiento DTU]
6) Eterno b Ciclope [Campeonato de Alto Rendimiento DTU]
7) Hormiga b Tribal [Campeonato de Alto Rendimiento DTU]
8) Crazy Boy DQ Silver King
9) Joe Lider b Dance Boy, Extreme Tiger [DTU]
Lider pinned Dance Boy to retain the title. Tiger was busy brawling in the crowd with Eterno.
DQ in the semimain was for Drastick Boy appearing to help out Crazy Boy. Always odd when there are DQs in DTU.
The four winners of the DTU tournament matches square off in a tag match at the next DTU show in the next stage of the tournament.
CMLL (SUN) 11/07 Arena Coliseo [CMLL, Cesar]
1) Apolo Estrada Jr. & Zayco b Astro Boy & Freesbe
2) Amapola, Princesa Blanca, Princesa Sujei b Dalys la Caribeña, Lluvia, Marcela
3) Euforia, Nosferatu, Pólvora b Ángel Azteca Jr., Ángel de Plata, Fabián el Gitano
4) Hijo del Fantasma, Rush, Sagrado b Mephisto, Taichi, Yoshihashi
5) Brazo de Plata, Máximo, Shocker DQ Héctor Garza, Negro Casas, Volador Jr.
Negro Casas fouled Maximo for the DQ in the main event.
Semimain only went two falls. It wasn’t the planned finish, but the match was stopped after a Hijo del Fantasma top rope headscissors on Mephisto. Mephisto didn’t flip over, landed on his head and was out from there. This sounds like it could be a very serious injury – Mephisto was strechered from the ring and taken to a hospital. (On his Twitter, Taichi says Mephisto has a cervical spine injury.)
Fantasma had beaten Mephisto the last two weeks. Next week is a fan appreciation show at Arena Mexico, and Mephisto defending his (insert name here) Welterweight Championship would’ve been the logical main event to be added during the week. They may just not do a main event, or they may change things around quite a bit.
Both recaps note Nosferatu has lost a lot of weight. Back when the Cancerberos were formed, Virus said the people in his group are those who work out very hard in the gym, and the implication was Nosferatu wasn’t working out hard enough to make the cut. Perhaps that’s changing.
I think I need to put this in bold: Sexi Star coming to CMLL would be a terrible idea for CMLL and a terrible idea for Sexi Star. This would be the female version of Electroshock’s return to CMLL; the upside of Sexi Star joining CMLL is we’d have a new go to example of bad career moves. Sexi Star has been completely pushed off to the side since her FCW experience, but she was the biggest female star in the company and highly promoted previously. I’d assume she will be again sometime soon, but she could know something the rest of us do not. She definitely doesn’t seem content with staying in AAA, but that does seem like the best fit for her.
Hector Garza still wants the tag team titles returned to him. On Ras de Lona, he and Aguila were waving around the title match contract with Atlantis’ name on it. To Fuego en el Ring, Hector complains of biased refereeing.
Ras de Lona is taped on Wednesday, and Atlantis appeared perfectly healthy on the show. Perhaps he was just putting a brave face for the cameras.
Super Porky says he’s down to 110 kg/242.5 lb (from 170 kg/375 lb, though I think that’s conservative.) He wants to get down to 100 kg/220 kg. Porky credits a new woman in his life with inspiring chance.
Ozz & Cuervo explain to Mi Lucha Libre how they don’t need Scoria, their partner of the last 8 years. Scoria explains he felt the Dark Family had gone as far as it could go, and he wanted a change. Scoria explains he decided to join with Cibernetico because they had issues in the past, which is an odd reason.
CMLL in NJPW 11/06: Terrible & Texano b Jushin Liger & King Fale [Texano TT Bomb Fale]
G1 Block A: Manabu Nakanishi & Strong Man b Masato Tanaka & Tomohiro Ishii [Strong Man Argentine backbreaker Ishii]
11/07: Iizuka, Daniel Puder, Terrible, Texano Jr. b Jushin Liger, Tiger Mask, Tama Tonga, King Fale [Texano TT Bomb Fale]
G1 Semfinal: No Limit b Manabu Nakanishi & Strong Man
SuperLuchas #389 has Sabu, new tag champs, new Bizarros. I greatly enjoyed the sidebar that explained the DTU chants at the XLAW show were technically incorrect, because XLAW is more of ECW homage while DTU is more of a CZW/Big Japan ripoff. Speaking of that show, there’s a video of Juvi attacking Super Crazy.
CMLL bodybuilding contest is this week. And Mascara Dorada & Sombra are off to Japan. Seems like Vailente has the Puebla show on Monday and is off the rest of the week.
CMLL (TUE) 11/09 Arena Mexico
1) Camaleón & Principe vs Camorra & Zayco
2) Guerrero Maya Jr., Metálico, Metatrón vs Bronco, Durango Kid, Hooligan
3) Ángel Azteca Jr., Fuego, Rush vs Nosferatu, Pólvora, Virus
4) Brazo de Plata, Metro, Toscano vs Terrible, Texano, Vangelis
5) Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto vs Charly Manson, El Alebrije, Psicosis
All five Avernos on one show, which doesn’t seem to happen all that much. Helps to have 2 of them back from Japan! Fuego and Los Cancerberos are matched up again. Maybe Nosferatu can earn membership by actually beating the man from Oaxaca?
CMLL (TUE) 11/09 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Thunder Boy vs Templario
2) Hierro & Magnum vs Drago & León Blanco
3) Metal Blanco & Palacio Negro vs Mr. Trueno & Rey Trueno
4) Delta, Diamante, Gallo vs Demus 3:16, Escorpion, Semental
5) La Máscara, Místico, Sagrado vs Héctor Garza, Mr. Águila, Taichi
Invasors main event both CMLL shows. Oh well.
This actually looks like a pretty fun TV show, especially the GDL local cable show including the tercera.
IWRG (THU) 11/11 Arena Naucalpan
1) Centurión vs Nemesis
2) Bugambilia del Norte & Dinamic Black vs Carta Brava Jr. & Hammer
3) Comando Negro, Guerrero Negro, Magia Negra vs Arlequin Amarillo, Arlequin Negro, Arlequin Rojo
4) Bobby Lee Jr., Centauro, Cerebro Negro vs Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro
5) Dr. Cerebro, La Parka Jr., Veneno vs Billy Boy, Decnnis, Hijo de Pierroth (IWRG)
That’s an odd collection of people in one main event. In all of the matches, anyway.
CMLL (FRI) 11/12 Arena Mexico
1) Molotov & Starman vs Escorpion & Mortiz
2) Astral, Eléctrico, Pequeno Maximo vs Pequeño Universo 2000, Pequeño Warrior, Pierrothito
3) Dalys la Caribeña, Dark Angel, Marcela vs Estrellita, Seuxis, Tiffany
4) Stuka Jr. vs Raziel [lightning]
5) Felino, Negro Casas, Rey Bucanero vs Héctor Garza, Mr. Águila, Taichi
6) Blue Panther, Místico, Shocker vs Atlantis, Dragón Rojo Jr., Último Guerrero
Pequeno Maximo is on the same show as Rey Bucanero, that’s interesting. Or a busy night.
Seuxis finally gets to team with Los Invasors!
CMLL (SUN) 11/14 Arena Mexico
1) Bengala, Leono, Tigre Blanco vs Apocalipsis, Artillero, Súper Comando
2) Astral, Bam Bam, Mascarita Dorada vs Pequeño Olímpico, Pequeño Warrior, Pierrothito
3) Ángel Azteca Jr., Ángel de Oro, Ángel de Plata vs Arkángel de la Muerte, Loco Max, Skándalo
4) Delta, Diamante, Fuego vs Euforia, Sangre Azteca, Shigeo Okumura
5) Brazo de Plata, Máximo, Místico vs Ephesto, Felino, Negro Casas
As mentioned above, I think something’s up and this card is going to change.
CMLL (SUN) 11/14 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) El Divino vs In Memoriam
2) Black Metal & Virgo vs Drago & Malefico
3) Goya Kong, Lluvia, Luna Mágica vs Amapola, La Comandante, Mima Shimoda
4) Rush, Sagrado, Stuka Jr. vs Averno, Terrible, Texano Jr.
5) Blue Panther, La Máscara, Shocker vs Atlantis, Dragón Rojo Jr., Último Guerrero
IWRG (SUN) 11/14 Arena Naucalpan
1) Bugambilia del Norte & Dinamic Black vs Carta Brava Jr. & Hammer
2) Ángel Mortal, Espectro, Gallego vs Black Terry, Cerebro Negro, Dr. Cerebro
3) Biba Kasai, Mascarita Sagrada, Miss Gaviota vs Jennifer Blake, Mini Histeria, Pasion Kristal
4) Hijo del Cien Caras & Máscara Año 2000 Jr. vs Hijo de Pirata Morgan & Pirata Morgan [IWRG IC TAG]
Jennifer Blake hasn’t been on AAA shows, so I think this is an outdated lineup. Since her replacement has been Oyuki and Naguya, I wonder if that ends up being the sisters against each other.
CMLL (FRI) 11/05 Arena Mexico [CMLL, Cesar]
1) Metálico & Trueno b Artillero & Súper Comando
2) Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Violencia, Pequeño Warrior b Astral, Bam Bam, Eléctrico
3) Ángel de Oro b Euforia [lightning]
4) Felino, Misterioso II, Vangelis b Metro, Stuka Jr., Valiente
5) Mr. Águila DQ Rey Bucanero, Héctor Garza, Negro Casas, Shocker, Olímpico, Máscara Dorada, Averno, Psicosis, Charly Manson [cibernetico]
6) Atlantis, Dragón Rojo Jr., Último Guerrero b La Máscara, La Sombra, Místico
Atlantis & Ultimo won clean over Mascara & Sombra. After the match, Dragon Rojo went after Mistico and tore off his mask. This feud seems like a poor idea for Dragon Rojo; starting to think perhaps the big Dragon Rojo push might be more about short term than long term.
Cibernetico came down to Aguila & Bucanero. Bucanero got Aguila with a Canadian Destroyer m for the apparent win, but Tirantes ruled the maneuver illegal piledriver and gave Aguila the win. Verbage is important: this was Tirantes finding a technicality to give his guy a win, not a change in how they’ll be ruling this move from now on. (And, for all purposes except the official result, the Invasors lost again.) Bucanero wants a hair match, but getting shut down.
Warrior stole Electrico’s mask to pin him, then challenged for a mask vs mask match. Not accepted.
more news sometime in the next few days.

Other stuff to watch: preview for Marco Corleone’s Highspots shoot video, coming out 11/16. I couldn’t exactly remember the incident he talks about, but I think I know who it was. (No spoilers.)
On this, Marco says he regrets going to AAA. On Cabana’s podcast, Rocky Romero says he regrets going to AAA (as much about going as he left.) On another one of Cabana’s podcasts, X-Pac says AAA didn’t live up to their promises and seems angry about the whole thing. Which seems like a trend; on the other hand, Koslov seems positive about the whole thing.
IWRG (THU) 11/04 Arena Naucalpan [En el Ring, Estrellas del Ring, Mi Lucha Libre]
1) Keshin Black b Tonatiuh
2) Dinamic Black & Freelance b Hammer & Magia Negra
3) Bugambilia del Norte, Miss Gaviota, Pimpinela Escarlata b Avisman, El Hijo del Diablo, Guerrero Negro
4) Cerebro Negro & Dr. Cerebro b Crazy Boy & Joe Lider [cage]
5) Arlequin Negro L Hijo del Cien Caras, El Hijo de Aníbal, Trauma I, Oficial AK47, Comando Negro, Máscara Año 2000 Jr., Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Centauro, Oficial 911, Carta Brava Jr., Alan Extreme [castle of terror, mask, cage]
The cage match went 10 minutes before everyone stated to leave. Alan Extreme, Oficial AK-47, Trauma I, Carta Brava Jr. and Centauro all left in normal fashion. Comando Negro gave Arelquin Negro with a martinete, everyone else in the cage realized Arelquin was out, and they all climbed out of the cage at the same time. They all escaped, and Arelquin Negro lost his mask. He’s Jorge Hernandez Gomez, from Michoacan, 8 years a wrestler.
As everyone notes, this is the third Arlequin to lose his mask in fall IWRG cage matches in three years. Arlequin Amarillo lost his mask to Mascara Ano 2000 Jr. in 2008’s Castle of Terror and Arlequin Rojo lost his mask to Rigo in a September 2009 cage match (losers of cage matches facing off.)
Comando Negro was credited with the win. This is his second apuesta win in a short time. After the match, Pirata Morgan appeared to attack Mascara Ano 2000 Jr. and takes his mask (as well as some fan’s masks.)
Semimain was a cage match too. With the other two out, Crazy Boy tried to put Dr. Cerebro thru a flaming table, but Dr. Cerebro reversed, sent Crazy thru, and escaped for the win.
Main event is scheduled to be Mascara, Sombra, Mistico vs Los Guerreros. Atlantis is still listed in the main event, despite missing the title match on Tuesday with a rib injury. Semimain is a CMLL vs Invasors cibernetico. Invasors probably will get a win, but it seems too late for them.
Perro Aguayo Jr. is off “the War” Perros/independent show in Tijuana this Saturday. The promotion says it’s a knee injury; likely the same sort of knee injury that’s been bedeviling Mr. Niebla. Blue Demon Jr. will take his place.
On his podcast yesterday, Colt Cabana said he was supposed to work the 10/31 IWL show, but the promoter pulled him off the show. The promoter told Colt that he didn’t want to bring in American because another American had just no showed because he was too scared to go to Mexico. (That’d be Scott Summers, who missed the 10/16 show.) It wasn’t clear if he’d eventually be back.
CMLL (MON) 11/08 Arena Puebla
1) Asturiano, Black Tiger, Milenium vs Akron, Ares, Espiritu Maligno
2) Fabián el Gitano, Pegasso, Rey Cometa vs Cancerbero, Shigeo Okumura, Yoshihashi
3) Metro, Stuka Jr., Valiente vs Misterioso II, Pólvora, Sangre Azteca
4) Hijo del Fantasma, Shocker, Toscano vs Felino, Taichi, Volador Jr.
5) Místico vs Rey Bucanero
Rey Bucanero gets his singles match! Probably won’t be so happy about it. Valiente is the best possible Mascara Dorada fill in, though the title match likely isn’t for another week. Dorada and Sombra should be back on 11/15.
IWRG (SUN) 10/31 Arena Naucalpan [KrisZ]
1) Centurión b Keshin Black
2) Brazo Metalico & Dinamic Black b Alan Extreme & Nemesis
3) Arlequin Amarillo, Arlequin Negro, Arlequin Rojo b Bugambilia del Norte, Diva Salvaje, Miss Gaviota
4) Pirata Morgan b Freelance and Oficial AK47 and Black Terry and Magia Negra and El Hijo de Aníbal and Oficial Fierro and Gran Markus Jr. and Cerebro Negro and Tony Rivera and Comando Negro and El Pollo and El Brazo and El Hijo del Diablo and Máscara Año 2000 Jr. and Chico Che and Dr. Cerebro and Oficial 911 and Veneno and Hijo del Cien Caras [cibernetico, lumberjack strap]
Match came down to Pirata & Cien, and the Dinamitas argued Cien Caras got his shoulder up in time. At any rate, Pirates and Dinamitas are feuding again.
CMLL (MON) 11/01 Arena Puebla [CMLL]
1) Ares & Centauro de Fuego b Blue Center & King Jaguar
2) Bronco, Puma King, Tiger Kid b Guerrero Maya Jr., Horus, Tigre Blanco
3) Ángel de Oro, Leono, Sensei b Demus 3:16, Dr. X, Nitro
4) Misterioso II, Pólvora, Sangre Azteca b Máximo, Metro, Stuka Jr.
5) Blue Panther, Máscara Dorada, Místico DQ Felino, Rey Bucanero, Último Guerrero
In revenge for last week, Mistico tossed his mask to Bucanero to draw a DQ. Singles match coming up soon.
Rudos won the semimain and challenged for the Mexican National trios titles, though the tecnicos pointed out Dorada was the third champion, not Maximo. Misterioso pointed out Dorada was in the locker room and called him out. Dorada said he’s leaving for Japan on Sunday, so he can’t defend the titles on Monday, but he promised a title match when he returned.
Fuego en el Ring has fan polling about why they’re not happy with CMLL. The common theme is the ex-AAA guys are pushed far better than their spot, and Tirantes’ act detracts from the supposed serious and stable. The Tirantes bit was supposed to give the Invasors more credibility – even if they weren’t on the CMLL guys level, they could still cheat a way to a win – but it really seems to have backfired.
Dragon Rojo Jr. says winning the tag team titles is a reward for all his hard work. The man clearly works hard, though maybe he’s too focused on certain work.
Cibernetico is sad his best friend La Parka didn’t trust him. His best friend? La Parka says they will always be friends, and he doesn’t want to go back to feuding with Cibernetico. The newest Bizarro vignette, with Amadeus, is up.
CMLL (FRI) 11/19 Plaza de Toros de Chilpancingo, Guerrero
1) Brazo de Oro, Brazo de Platino Jr., Robin vs Arkángel de la Muerte, Cancerbero, Raziel
2) Máximo, May Flowers, Valiente vs Dragón Rojo Jr., Felino, Olímpico
3) Volador Jr. vs La Máscara, Atlantis, Apolo Estrada Jr., Último Guerrero, Charly Manson, Histeria, Héctor Garza, Brazo de Platino, Psicosis [mask, hair, cage]
CMLL.com is promoting this show. Cage match is CMLL vs Invasors, and Brazo de Platino & Apolo Estrada Jr. are the two guys who wouldn’t be in the match except to lose. May Flowers hasn’t been around AAA for a while.
as noted earlier on Twitter: Mexico started Daylight Savings Time last weekend. That means everything is happening an hour earlier than usual on Saturday. (We catch up on Sunday.) On the chart, I’ve got the Mexico times listed with their local time, but that’s effectively one hour later in the US & Canada.
This is as good a place as to note posts might be light this weekend. I’ve already got an open thread post scheduled to show up Saturday if I don’t have time for news. The usual video links may be late as well.
AAA-US: La Secta has their first match since joining Team AAA at Heroes Inmortales (and comes off as a bigger deal this time.) Militia face Laredo/SuperFly and Lider/Nicho and aren’t really the focus of either. Main is Hernandez/Park/Zorro vs Mesias/Parka/Octagon.
52MX: now that tournament is over, guessing this show is harder work! Expecting Minis + Team Japan vs Maximo/Toscano/Valiente here.
LATV: If they go in order, this is a minis match and a women’s trios. The odds of this show making any sense are low.
CMLL GDL on Teleformula: Avernos/Dragon vs Maximo/Rush/Toscano + Mistico/Fantasma/Porky vs Guerreros.
FWIW, the bonus match for GDL webfeed this week is Black Metal & Metal Blanco vs Mr. Trueno & Rey Trueno. Need to add that show to the chart soon.
CMLL: listed at 3PM and 2 hours long but surely that’ll change. Guerreros vs Mascara/Sombra/Mistico + CMLL vs Invasors cibernetico.
AAA-MEX: Cuervo/Ozz vs Chessman/Zorro + Psycho Circus do not win a match.
AAA-Premier: On Fox Sports at 9pm on Saturday, and does not appear to be picked up on the US version of this channel. Guessing they go in order: Chessman/Jack vs Pimpi/Silver + Ciber/Hernandez vs Parka/Psycho
CMLL-FOX: Women’s trios, plus Avernos+Rey Buc vs Porky/Panther/Fantasma. I think there’s a Mephisto/Fantasma feud going on, but CMLL’s not really mentioning it.
C3: a tag main event of some consequence
Puebla: on? not on?
ACM: CMLL’s turn, though I’m just guessing at what match.
PdM: on? not on?
IWRG: Electro vs Lider vs Silver + Oficials vs end of the roster AAA tecnicos.
CMLL-TFN: Angel (de Oro) vs Arkangel & No Limit/Okumura vs Averno/Terrible/Texano
CMLL (TUE) 11/02 Arena Coliseo [ESTO, SuperLuchas, Cesar]
1) Disturbio & Durango Kid b Molotov & Tijuana Joe
2) Arkángel de la Muerte, Loco Max, Skándalo b Ángel Azteca Jr., Ángel de Plata, Rey Cometa
3) Delta, Diamante, Fuego DQ Cancerbero, Raziel, Virus
4) Blue Panther, Hijo del Fantasma, Rotoporky b Negro Casas, Shigeo Okumura, Taichi
5) Dragón Rojo Jr. & Último Guerrero b Héctor Garza & Mr. Águila [CMLL TAG]
New champions! Dragon Rojo replaced Atlantis, still hurt from Super Porky’s senton on Sunday. (Hmmm.) Also, despite the champions accepting this match under the condition Tirantes Sr. would be the ref, Rafael el Maya was the official instead. CMLL.com notes Garza protested both of these things, to no avail.
Fans were behind the Guerreoros. Challengers took the first fall, champions took the second fall. Third fall was even until Garza accidently kicked Aguila in the head when aiming for Dragon Rojo. Guerreros immediately got the pin and the titles. After the match, Ultimo Guerrero taunted Hector Garza: Hector got five shots at UG’s title but couldn’t win, and UG beat Hector in his first chance.
The Invasors are done. I mean, they’re not going anywhere physically, but they’re not going anywhere economically either.
Virus fouled Fuego and may have pulled his mask. All of the Cancerbros seems to have issues with Fuego. It’s fire thing.
Pegasso is still out, Angel de Plata replaced him.Tijuana Joe filled in for Starman in the opener.
CMLL in NJPW: 11/03
Nakanishi, Giant Bernard, Karl Anderson, Strong Man b Yuji Nagata, Hirooki Goto, Wataru Inouse, Jushin Liger [Nakanishi b Liger]
G1 Block B: Tanahashi & Taijri b Terrible & Texano Jr. [Tajiri pin after Tanahashi High Fly Fly on Texano]
Loss drops Texano & Terrible to 2-3, so they’re not going to make the semifinals. The tour is off for 3 days, but resumes with a Nakanishi/Strong Man vs Tanaka/Ishii tournament match with the winner gets in.
Today is the special Dia de la Muertos show in Arena Coliseo. Main event is Mr. Aguila & Hector Garza vs Ultimo Guerrero & Atlantis for the tag team titles. The Invasors can’t possibly lose this one too. Pegasso is still listed on the card, though it sounded like he missed his shows in Monterrey over the weekend after getting hurt on Friday.
CMLL in NJPW: 11/02
Manabu Nakanishi, Strong Man, Koji Kanemoto & Tiger Mask b Giant Bernard, Karl Anderson, Prince Devitt & Ryusuke Taguchi [Strong Man Argentine backbreaker Anderson]
G1 Block B: Terrible & Texano b NO LIMIT [Tornado Texano on Yujiro]
Tie breaker win! Now they got to make sure never to give Naito and Yujiro a rematch to be safe. I wonder if Terrible will ever get to win a match?
Hijos del Averno now have 4 points, 2-2. Almost every team in their block has 4 points, and almost every team has just 1 match left. Tanahashi & Tajiri, the only team with 2 matches left, are the last opponets for the CMLL duo.
