DTU in SLP, Tercera Caida, Pantera I

DTU (TUE) 11/20/2012 Salon La Carreta, San Luis Potosi [Sobre el Ring]
1) Anthrax, Furia Salaje, Muerte Extranjera b Black Angel, Exterminador, Kancerberius
2) Crazy Power I & Crazy Power II b Lucky Boy & Niño de Ébano and Eragon Kid & Septimo Dragon
3) Nino Hamburguesa & Paloma Rouse DRAW Galaxy & Ranieth
Ranieth and Nino Hamburguesa double pinned. Nino asked Ranieth to be his girlfriend, but she declared she could not date a tecnico and Galaxy took her away. X-Fly then walked out, said he hated fat people, and attacked Hamburguesa. Ranieth came back to make the save. This sets up a match for DTU’s return.
4) Cerebro Negro & Septimo Dragon b Araña de Plata Jr. & Pequeno Cobra and Aranita & Rev. Angel
Cerebero Negro piledrived Aranita onto some chairs and tables.
5) Hacker b Eita and Flamita and Angel Del Misterio
Not a title match? Eliminations went Eita, Flamita, Angel del Misterio
6) Astro Latino b Alex Guajardo [hair]
Astro Latino won with a top rope spanish fly to take Alex’s hair and keep his own mask.
7) Ciclope & Rey Latino b Drastik Boy & Pesadilla and Centella Inca & X-Fly
X-Fly took advantage of other people’s work to pin Pesadilla (with his feet on the ropes!), then Rey Latino hit Inca with a barbed wire. Cerbero Negro challenged Pesadilla to a title shot on their return to SLP. Crazy Boy made the match.

This week’s Tercera Caida is up on YouTube, though I think it doesn’t actually air until this afternoon. The show set up a Matt Cross vs Daga match, though no date, location, or promotion was announced. (The top 10 moments is separate. Check out the horrible draw for the Mr. Averno vs Mistico Negro match.)

A “Pantera I” has been appearing in matches around Mexico City lately. It’s not the most famous Pantera – the one who lost his mask in CMLL, still wears in IWRG, and has a son who wrestles is technically Pantera II. He and (a) Pantera I were partners when they started out, but information we’ve always had is Pantera I is dead. I’ve seen some guys in really bad shape on lucha libre shows, but never that bad. Ring Extremo interviewed Pantera I, and I have to admit to only half following the conversation, but Pantera I produced proof he owns the right to that name and wants promoters to use him without fear of being used for false advertising the other Pantera. That is a joke to me. Even if he is the rightful Pantera I, he hasn’t used that name in 25 years and only then would’ve used it on small shows which are largely not remembered; there’s no value or credibility in “Pantera I” except for being mistaken as the other Pantera. (Both Panteras act entitled to things they’re really not owed, it’s a larger rant for a different day.) Ring Extremo also has a promo with Pantera I & Mike Segura hyping their participation in the Sobre el Ring tag team tournament, which is doubly interesting because the original Pantera I is Mike Segura’s brother, and it’d be odd for even lucha libre for a guy to be teaming with someone pretending to be his dead brother. Still, his return is so random that it feels like someone else putting on the mask for some other gain, I’m not totally sure what’s going on here.

Volador says he beat La Mascara on Tuesday. I believe Volador.
