CMLL (FRI) 11/02 Arena Mexico
1) Fabian el Gitano & Leono vs Euforia & Nosferatu
2) Maximo, Sagrado, Ultimo Dragon vs Averno, Mephisto, Samurai Shiro
3) Rey Bucanero, Shocker, Sombra vs Black Warrior, Hijo de Lizmark, Tozcano
4) Blue Panther, Dos Caras Jr., Marco Corelone vs Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Mr. Aguila, Terrible
5) Mistico & Negro Casas vs Atlantis & Ultimo Guerrero [CMLL TAG]
Main event could be really good, or they could do two falls in three minutes and an 8 minute final fall that’s all “move pause move”. At least it has a chance to be really good, more than you can say for most.
Are they going anywhere with Dos/Perro? We’ll see tonight.
I hope Satanico has set his men for Destroy in the opener. If ever I could get a two fall squash, that’s the one I want.
Tonight’s show offers free tickets to any child who comes in costume (with an adult ticket). They’re also planning a tribute to Huracan Ramirez
Ovaciones previews the show with a profile of Black Warrior. He’s still looking for revenge over Mistico and wants Blue Panther’s mask. ESTO works today’s holiday into a death/rebirth theme with Black Warrior, speaking more about his departure and return from CMLL this year than his mask loss. Warrior is not very clear about what happened, but he is verya apologetic that it happened. I like the final line the best: “On this Day of the Dead, Black Warrior recalls his father, dedicating the match and offering a beer, which he liked a lot.”
Notimex has Mistico vowing he’ll leave his life in the ring to defend the titles. That’s a lot for the tag team titles.
ESTO notes this is Lizmark Jr.‘s first match in Arena Mexico since losing his mask, due to his broken nose. The injury took out whatever steam there was in Lizmark losing his mask.
CMLL wrestlers (and Park and Wagner) who aren’t working Arena Mexico are working Arena Xalapa tonight. Mistico and Perro are due there on 11/23, but the big news is the rudos in the segunda are listed as having “cancer, AIDS, and Ebola – but the doctors say they’re in very very good health.” I think they need a new doctor!
IWRG (THU) 11/01 Arena Naucalpan [Mr. Reyes @ Satanico’s Mansion representing the gladiatores, superluchas]
1) Judas el Traidor, Puma King, Rockero del Diablo b Tortuguillo Ninja I, Tortuguillo Ninja II, Tortuguillo Ninja III
2) Oficial 911 & Yamato b Cyborg & Xibalva

5) Enterrador 2000 L Rayo de Jalisco Jr., Villano IV, Enfermero Jr., Bogeman, Mascara Ano 2000 Jr., Captian Muerte, Coco Verde, Sepitembre Negro II, Oficial Fiero [cage, mask]
Enterrado 2000 is Irison Mora Arias (Toro Irisson), 22 years in wrestling, originally from Juarez. Rayo de Jalisco Jr. is saying he’s won 49 masks, and Santo could be 50. Keep on dreaming. Order of escape is Fiero, Capitan Muerte, Bogmean, Coco Verde, Septiembre Negro II, Enfermero Jr., Villano IV, and Mascara Ano 2000 Jr. MY2K Jr. returned (to attack Rayo) and both left at about the same time.
Negro Casas will indeed have a second belt tonight, though the finish had some controversy; V3 got his shoulder up visibly, but was counted down for three. They agreed to a rematch. Superluchas was surprised and disappointed with the length of the first two falls.
Cerebro Negro had Black Terry pinned for the first elimination of the triangle match, but he did it via low blow. Referee noticed, and Terry got a win. Match got worse with no Black Terry, though he came back to save Fantasma from being pinned. Terry wants the mask himself, so he attacked Cerebro Negro and Fantasma beat him for the belt.
Full house for the show.
ESTO also says the Navarro Brothers VIP show tommorow has been canceled. No reason given, though there are forum posts where the Navarro Brothers pass off the blame, saying they sold this show to another promoter.

Crowd was 75% full. Lots of referee intervention in the main event. Averno yanked Mistico’s mask and covered him, but got caught after the fact. Hooligan replaced Skandalo.
