IWRG (FRI) 11/14 Arena Naucalpan [SuperLuchas #290]
1) Avisman b Imperio Azteca
2) Eragon & Fenix b Anubis & Shuriken
3) Black Terry, Cerebro Negro, Dr. Cerebro b Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro
4) Capitán Muerte, Fuerza Guerrera, Toxico AAA b Fantasma Jr., Multifacético, Pendulo
5) Arlequin & Hijo de Pierroth DQ Head Hunter I & Veneno
Main event was supposed to be a title match, but the Capos were MIA and it turned into a pseudo #1 contenders match instead. Arlequin’s team won, but only because Head Hunter was more interested in gouging his opponents and the referee with a fork than actually winning the match.
Multifacetico is said to have had a bad night. Toxico pinned him. Black Terry snuck in a foul on 911 for the pin, and wants a title shot.
Speaking about Friday’s main event, Toscano says he wasn’t surprised he got turned on, and he’ll just go back to teaming with the Guerreros and getting revenge. Toscano admits he has no idea what the Averno faction is supposed to be called. At first, I was going to mock him for this, but then I thought back to watching the last two weeks of the main TV, and there’s no way you’d know from that; if it’s been mentioned at all, it’s not been treated like anything important. Even though the Perro shirt ripping bit was show very briefly in between replays, and I’m not sure anyone who didn’t already know to look for it would have understood what was going on.
For next year’s anniversary show, Mistico wants a mask match with Averno or Ultimo Guerrero. If he can stay healthy that long, maybe they can talk about it. Perro Aguayo Jr., the usual name for these sort of challenges, goes unmentioned.
Ovaciones is under the impression Dr. Wagner Jr. will show up for tonight’s Arena Coliseo show. (Or did show up, by the time you read this.) They also pass along the rumor that the Morenos sisters – Cinthia, Esther, Rossy – are coming back to CMLL. Cinthia makes no sense, given she’s mixed champion in AAA at the moment. I have no doubt the other two would want into CMLL after trying to get independent bookings for a while, but I’d presume it would depend on how many friends they have to help them in. It’s worth noting here that a couple of Villalobos affiliated women are working Puebla’s show tommorow, so maybe there’s some deal being set up here.
Of more importance, also in Ovaciones, IWRG mentions they’ll wrap up their year on 12/22 and go on vacation until 01/02 or 01/04. The big question: when is my vacation? Seriously now.
There’s also a story about Blue Demon’s next show being a benefit for those dealing with childhood cancer, but here (and in other articles), they’re saying the show is today when it was previous mentioned as being pushed back a week. Unless I’m just confusing two shows, which is very possible.
SuperLuchas #290 has Canek vs Antonio Inoki from 1979 on the cover, which is actually a fair representation about this week. The website also has a post about an South American tournament in Peru. I know CMLL will never ever tour any place outside of Mexico since the Spain tour flopped so bad we’re supposed to forget it happened and forget that they were supposed to be on tour #3 by now, but why isn’t any regularly running in South America? That would seem to be a much easier sell, CMLL’s done some work in Panama this year, and there’s not three other ‘world’ promotions overexposing wrestling there.
With CMLL and AAA pre-empted for golf (and, for once, CMLL sure did things better – everyone knew they were being pre-empted, no one knew AAA was), Accion’s only lucha highlights were of WWE. Not the main event, not the title change, but the women’s match between Beth Phoenix and Mickie James, which was a horrible match between the two. Someone must’ve decided they just wanted women on, I guess.
The winner of the Freestlye Fitness contest was ex-ECWer Brooke Adams. Dark Angel did not make the top 5.

5) ?, Dr. Wagner Jr., Zumbido vs Head Hunter I, Máscara Año 2000, Veneno
Semimain may be a title match by the time it happens. As always, I would presume
Reyes del Ring (SAT) 11/22 Explanda de la Escuela 18 de Marzo Actazingo, Puebla
1) Deslizador de Plata, Gay Clown, Spider-Man vs Anthrax, Exterminio, Nekro
2) Mascarita de Oro & Rey Parkita vs Mini Cibernetico & Mini Espiritu

4) Crazy Star, Linda Star, Martha Villalobos vs Ayako Hamada, Lady Metal, Lady Warrior
5) Groon XXX, Meteoro, Pegasso Extreme vs Barba Roja, Pirata Morgan Jr., Zumbido
Well, it’s not quite IWRG, but give me another week and Barba Roja will be there. This is really only posted for that guy in the opener.
PROLLM (SUN) 11/23 Coliseo Coacalco
1) Cyrus & Thunderbird vs Betos Boy & Espejismo
2) Alma Negra & Forastero vs Espartano I & Espartano II
3) Aguila Guerrera & Lobo Metalico vs Niebla Negra I & Niebla Negra II
4) Daga, Huizar, Maverick vs Federal I, Federal II, Sepulturero I
5) Freelance, Magnifico, Romano vs Calígula, Judas el Traidor, Méssala
Freelance vs Romanos seems like a dream match.
CMLL (SUN) 11/23 Arena Coliseo
1) Molotov & Trueno vs Puma King & Tiger Kid
2) Astro Boy, Fabián el Gitano, Tigre Blanco vs Dr. X, Hooligan, Nitro

4) Mictlán, Valiente, Volador Jr. vs Atlantis, Rey Bucanero, Sangre Azteca
5) La Sombra, Mascara Dorada, Místico vs Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto
Well, that’s some show. If they subbed in (say) Hijo de Fantasma & Hijo de Farano for Mictlan and Leono, I think Rob would have to fly down to Mexico just to make sure the top 3 got taped. Nice to see they’re just picking up the Arena Coliseo Tag Title feud like they didn’t even forget it for a week.
CMLL (SUN) 11/23 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Quazar, Samurai, Thunder Boy vs Azazel, Milenio, Relampago
2) Virgo vs Neon
3) Olímpico vs Virus, Terrible, Texano, Negro Casas, La Máscara, Axxel, Hijo del Fantasma, Blue Panther, Shocker [Copa Diablo Velasco]
Shocker being in a main event here probably means he’s showing up again real soon (if he shows up here.)
Super Crazy is listed as working Arena Azteca Budokan on 11/30, an AAA show.
