Estrellita won the Mexican National Women’s championship from Princesa Blanca in Arena Coliseo Guadalajara last night. It’s not a big surprise, Estrellita has been doing well in CMLL for the last year and they might have done this weeks ago if Estrellita didn’t cut her hand in a match and had to sit out for a few weeks. Marcela is the world champion, but CMLL presents Estrellita as the biggest female star. If you’re going to go with Estrellita, you might as well go strongly and having Estrellita with a belt is step in that direction.
It’s actually more surprising it didn’t take place on a big show. Blanca and Estrellita have been slightly feuding on the El Luchador show: an early episode included a pull apart when Blanca found out Estrellita was dating Puma King and tonight’s episode appears to center around the cage match they were both involved in. I’m still not sure if the A&E reality show makes a tangible difference to CMLL business – the worst period of CMLL last year was when season 1 aired – but it seems like worth trying to capitalize on it somehow. Right now, the only way they might be doing it is making sure Mistico is back in the ring just in time for the El Luchador episode where he becomes Mistico airs.
Princesa Blanca was champion for nearly 4 years. Amapola was world champion for most of that time, so they’ve gone in a couple months from the rudas dominating the championships to the tecnicas. (It also means the bodybuilding contest tomorrow is the only title Dark Angel is probably getting a shot at in the near future.)

Los Mazisos vs Queretaro locals, last one in loses hair or mask
8) Paranoiko & Pesadilla vs Halloween & Psicosis and Makabre & Super Mega
DTU tour. I think it’s neat how it’s not just Tulancingo & Mexico City wrestlers on the show, but luchadors from places they go to regularly (Guadalajara, SLP) are involved. Also nice is how they’ve getting tag teams together for an extended period prior to having titles (which I assume are coming sometime soon); it’s much better than the other way.
Whenever’s last week’s Fusion recap gets posted (2014), I’ll go over this again, but you really want to book Nicho el Millionario and not Psicosis I right now. Nicho is alright. Psicosis I has been back for months and hasn’t gotten a mask he can actually see and work out of it.
A long long time ago (earlier this year), Daga vowed he was done with DTU. He’s back because of the Perros del Mal deal.
I would guess a local is losing their hair in the cage match. But that must mean Loco Max has hair again.
DTU (SAT) 12/08/2012 Arena Margarita, San Luis Potosi
1) Artikus & Sherry Diva vs ? & Lily Fighter and Radical & Ramieth
mystery person is a SLP exotico

7) ?, Astro Latino, Jhonky vs Joe Lider
Mystery wrestler is a DTU trainee, as Lider takes on new wrestlers.
8) Pesadilla vs Cerebro Negro [DTU]
Pesadilla is the champion
Pesadilla is the DTU champion though Joe Lider still seems to defend this title from time to time.
Semifinal appears to be 1 vs 3 and not a four way, but I could be reading the poster wrong. The idea is Lider is going to destroy some rookies.
The three way mask match has been teased for a while. It’s a long term feud with an actual payoff. Those of us who just follow AAA and CMLL may be unfamiliar with the concept.
