Notes: Referee is Tigre Hispano.

1: Dark Angel goes for the headlock length record (at least in CMLL), holding on for a while and refusing to let go even when Sugheit back suplexes her. Sugheit finally figures to shove her off after 90 seconds, but doesn't last much longer in the ring. Silueta starts off well, gets speared by Amapola, still manages to get the next armdrag in. Amapola reverses a corner whip to pull Silueta down by her head, but Silueta also reverse a corner move for a springboard dropkick to send the ruda. Goya rolls and poses, but a very neon green Zeuxis kicks her. Zeuxis might have escaped form that Tron open video on Fox Sports. Goya squashes her into the ropes, Zeuxis big boots Goya in the corner, Zeuxis and Goya reversed at the same whip about four times and Goya back splashes Zeuxis in the corner. Goya dances, and drops Amapola with a backbreaker, but misses an elbow drop and gets kicked out. First two back in, Dark Angel armdrags Sugheit into a headscissors submission. Silueta and Zeuxis have a couple step counter sequence that ends with a standing figure four submission (and Dark Angel grabbing Zeuxis' head to have her 'nod' and give up, ha.)

British Night #1

2: Sugheit grabs the card. Still doesn't work. Dark Angel armdrags Zeuxis around and dances. Rudas get it together to set Silueta up for Amapola's sit on the ropes, but are kind of confused as to what to do next. They settle for Sugheit kicking Goya repeatedly. Corner clothesline and Zeuxis boost dropkick for the tecnica. Zeuxis spins Dark Angel into the Caballete, which the crowd really likes for some reason. She's the captain, so this is over.

3: Rudas all come inf or a triple spinebuster, then drop Silueta on her backside for a triple snap kick. Zeuxis grabs her back after throwing Goya around by her hair. She's got heavy hair. Sugheit resume kicking Goya around, though actually tries a pin here (and lets go at two.) Silueta escapes a corner charge to start the comeback, headscissoring Amapola out. Sugheit kicks Zeuxis by mistake, then Dark Angel runs the rudas into each other so Goya can knock them both down. Dark Angel tope hits the ropes on the way thru – it's been a while since she's done that - and she lands short of Sugheit. Silueta shows some impressive strength on a fisherman's suplex to beat Zeuxis. Goya splashes Amapola from the middle rope while the announcers all freak out. (Referee is not at all concerned with multiple people covering here.)

Dark Angel welcomes us back to the show.

Match 2: Fuego, Starman, Triton vs Namajague, Shigeo Okumura, Virus
Arena Mexico, 11/27/2012

Winner: rudos
Match Time: 15:25
Rating: okay
Notes: Referee is Pompin.

1: Announcers are so thrilled to yell Starman again. He hasn't been on this show since March! He and Okumura reach no conclusions. Virus holds Fuego in holds for as long as possible. Namajague is very happy when he's chopping Triton down, not so happy when Triton is dropkicking him. Okumura knocks Triton down with a shoulderblock, Fuego springboard planchas him, but Okumura ducks around a charge and German suplexes him to suddenly win the fall. That just ended out of nowhere. Triton is busy posing for a photo with fans, may not realize the fall is over.

2: Rudos chop and elbow Starman around. Virus backdrops Starman and covers him for two. He's trapped in the ring for an extended time. Okumura and Namajague try to out twist his arms off before finally letting him go. Triton/Namajague chest slap battle won by Namajague slap to the face. Hard corner clothesline too. Virus tags in and covers for two. Virus really trying to get out of this one quick! Front clip, kick to the back, and Triton picked up for an eye rake and a big punch to the midsection. Running kick sends him out. Fuego duck a double clothesline to dropkick Okumura out, rudos kick him out, Triton springboard planchas Namajague, Virus kicks him in the corner, but Namajague miss the corner charge and almost traps himself in the ropes on the way out. Triton whipped into tan easy run up the ropes springboard plancha onto the masked Japanese, and Starman dropkick and tope con giros on Virus the other way. Okumura spinebusters Fuego and goes for a leg hold, Fuego kicks him off, La Flashina one two three!

3: Fuego and Okumura chop fight leads to a Fuego flipping run and dancing bit. Okumura back elbows and mocks him for the twentieth time the last month. Fuego really should figure out a solution for that. Springboard dropkick sends Okumura out. Starman's flipped to the apron by Virus, kicks Namajague down while he's there, and comes back in with a top rope armdrag. Namajague ducks a leapfrog with the splits, still takes a quebradora. Triton drops Namajague in the corner, adds a standing flip senton and goes up, only Namajague crotches him and pulls him off. Crucifix powerbomb, one two three! Namajague hooked Triton's head after a pin, I don't know why. Fuego knocks Namajague out one way, armdrags Okumura out the other way and topes him. Virus goes for a dive, then pull up and waits for Starman to plancha him. Starman armdrags Virus around, inside cradle turns into a Circus arm trap double reverse armbar, and they're done.

Match 3: Blue Panther, Guerrero Maya Jr., Valiente vs Black Warrior, Ephesto ©, Felino

  3. técnicos

Winner: técnicos (2-1)
Match Time: 11:59
Rating: eh
Notes: Zacarias is with Felino. Referee is Terror Chino.

1: Black Warrior goes to work on Guerrero Maya's right shoulder, putting pressure on the arm and running it into the corner a few times. Maya rallies back with a headscissors and dropkick. Felino runs around crazy before he faces off with Panther. Felino is fast, but Panther is quicker then him in a couple spots, catching him with a surprise elbow drop and a DDT on a counter. Panther tags in Valiente for a springboard plancha and a headscissors out, then Ephesto comes into take a reverse tope for three. Ephesto is the captain, so this another sudden ending to a first fall.

2: Panther traps Felino in an armbar, Warrior tags in, Warrior is ruled to have illegally tagged in. Rudos protest, then just do the same thing again. Crowd boos loudly. Sometimes, I am surprised there are not more rudo fans. Panther hands off to Maya, who stops Felino from tagging in, though he gets close enough for argument over tags. And then another one. Maya tags in unseen to Valiente, who is legal but not like Bestia Negra would be able to tell since he's arguing with the rudos. Valiente wristlock and and traps Felino being able to make at tag – until Felino can make at least the fifth rejected tag of the match. And soon the sixth. Black Warrior seems to have finally figured out the rule, but Ephesto took the tag that time. Panther tagged back in again. This has been a long two and half minutes, and after all that Panther just get whipped to the rudo corner and Warrior gets tagged back in. Warrior back elbows Panther out quickly to start the beatdown. Felino throws Panther into the barricade for a bit, while Warrior gives Maya his slingshot elbow drop. Warrior pays back the técnicos by blocking Maya from making a tag, then traps him in a escalera of all things. Maybe he wants to be Octagon Jr. too! Ephesto finishes Valiente right after.

British Night promo.

3: Rudos trap Blue Panther in the ring for a while, and this time it's the técnicos who can't make a tag. It doesn’t go on as long, but I'm pretty done with this. Zacarias viciously attacks Valiente in the rudo corner for a while. Maya stars the comeback about 2 minutes in, and take out all the rudos himself with armdrags and kicks. Warrior complains about a foul on a heel kick, but ti doesn't really go anywhere. Panther punches Ephesto in the hop for another foul argument, and then he does it again. Valiente speeds things up with a headscissors on Felino and topes him on the outside. Maya turns a Warrior armdrag into a submission, while Panther submits Ephesto. Panther holds on as long as possible to annoy the ref.

History: Black Shadow, which some how ends with a discussion of World War II and atomic bombs.

Winner: rudos (2-1)
Match Time: 10:38
Rating: eh
Notes: Tonga enters with Terrible and Comandante. Referee is Tirantes.

1: UG gives Porky a waistlock takedown, which is impressive given how big Porky is at the moment. This is followed by Porky doing the world's slowest sunset flip dropkick spot. It took so long, you have time to be stunned Ultimo Guerrero completed a sunset flip before realizing it was part of a reversal. Máximo does Máximo things with Terrible. Rudos hit Máximo running the ropes to start the beatdown. Porky takes a double backdrop, is in some mode. UG gets both finishes himself, most because the other rudos aren't that bothered.

2: Porky takes a stumbling backwards and falling down bump off a Terrible shoulderblock. Tama and Terrible steal Marco's lift up dropkick finish on Máximo. Marco misses his own corner splash and Tama headbutts him down. Corner charges for Porky. Terrible licks Máximo, but Marco cuts off a corner charge with a clothesline then this the double clothesline on one Guerrero and Tonga. Máximo splashes, Tonga this his own partner with an elbow drop, and Porky splashes everyone - for two. UG knocks out UG with a punch, then the other two win the usual way. Tonga fights the kiss of for a bit before giving in, so long that his pin isn't counted because Terrible is the captain. Porky holds Terrible for a Máximo kiss.

3: Porky is to fast for Tama Tonga, despite being very slow. Tonga does manage to escape before taking the corner sit. Ultimo Guerrero continues his decade of being annoyed by Máximo. Terrible slaps Máximo around. Porky yells at him, and Terrible slaps him. Porky tells him to try Marco, and Terrible declines. Máximo fights back, goes for the kiss, Terrible blocks, and Comando kicks Máximo instead. Máximo is disgusted! Marco dances, punches UG on the apron, and dives off with a clothesline to end his night. Tonga sunset flips Porky, but moves before Porky can sit on him. Tonga slams Porky easily, then grabs his back and collapses into a pin. Máximo tries the springboard butt bump on Terrible, but Terrible catches him and slams him for the win.

Announcers wrap it up.
