CMLL

New Year’s Show

The main event of this show was Caristico vs Ultimo Guerrero in a singles match. Caristico won in two falls, the first by submission, the next by DQ. It was a fine match, more an angle to me. Now the co-main event was the big show stealer. We saw the return of Fenix teaming with his brother Pentagon and Dragon Lee. They faced Sanson, Cuatrero, and Forastero. This was a great match which saw the former team winning. Dragon Lee picked up the fall on Cuatrero. Wonder if they will set up a trios title match soon. Kraneo, Volcano, and Hijo de LA Park took on Villano IV, Hijo del Villano III, and Mephisto. This match was interesting. It’s a very interesting pairing. Hijo del Villano looked a lot better than he did on the last show. We had a mask vs hair match in the middle of this show between some low mid carders. Camorra and Akuma lost to Yago and Hijo del Signo. The crowd didn’t really care that much about this match. This show drew 16,000 fans. Almost a sell out.

Last Friday Arena Mexico

This show got over 10,000 fans as well and did very well, as it should, it was a stacked card. The main event saw Angel de Oro, Niebla Roja, and Soberano faced Sanson, Cuatrero, and Forastero for the trios championships. This was a good match which saw the latter retaining their championships. Dragon Lee and Cavernario had a special singles match and a very long one at that. It was a great match that you should absolutely go out of your way to watch. Dragon Lee ended up winning in 3 falls. The last fall had to have gone 20 minutes or so. The athleticism in this match was incredible. Rush, Terrible, and Bestia del Ring faced Atlantis, Kraneo, and Volcano. This match was… nothing really. Just keeping Los Ingobernables strong. You had Caristico, Volador, and El Valiente face Ultimo Guerrero, Mephisto, and Euforia. Caristico, Volador, and Valiente won decisively in two falls. And we also had a lightning match with Titan and Triton in which Titan won. It was an overall good show. Perhaps great.

Arena Puebla Monday

This wasn’t really that important of a show Rush, Vangellys, and Bestia faced Kraneo, Hechicero, and Valiente in the main event. It was a weird pairing because Hechicero is a rudo mostly, and he showed that in this match double crossing Valiente. So they’re probably setting up a match in the future. Rush and his gang won the match. Maybe even next week, I don’t know the billboard isn’t out yet. The co-main event featured Niebla Roja, Stigma, and Stuka faced Mephisto, Felino, and Ephesto. Mephisto’s team won in what was an alright match. There was a lot of posturing on this show. Honestly it wasn’t that great of a show. You’ll save time reading my review rather than watching it.

Arena Mexico Tuesday

The main event of this show sees Rush, Mistico, and Dragon Lee faced off against Sanson, Cuatrero, and Forastero. It was a match I guess to get Lee and Rush in the ring together. This match also felt like it was setting up a match between Rush and Sanson. Rush, Mistico, and Dragon Lee won this match. The co-main event saw Caristico, Volador, and Soberano facing Ultimo Guerrero, Terrible, and Gran Guerrero. It was a fun match which saw the latter team winning. And then for the next match that was at the top of the bill we saw a lightning match between Angel de Oro facing Templario in which was a nice match with a cool finish.

Preview Arena Mexico Friday

I assume these shows for the next few days will be a little weaker since the roster is split doing the FantasticaMania shows which I will likely do some kind of review for the televised shows. Main event for this show is Rush, Villano IV, and Bestia facing Niebla Roja, Euforia, and Valiente. A little odd, because Euforia works rudo a lot. The co-main event is Kraneo, Volcano, and Stuka facing Mephisto, Luciferno, and Ephesto. So you can see that this show is a little weak.

AAA

Well there isn’t much here besides they have a show on January 19th and I haven’t seen any line up anymore yet, so I’ll keep everyone updated if I ever see a billboard. Yeah, there’s pretty much no AAA news to report on.

UPDATE:

Before this piece gets approved, full disclosure, the January 19th show line up got released Thursday Night and it is:

Psycho Clown, Dr. Wagner Jr, and La Parka vs Rey Escorpion, Blue Demon Jr, and Hijo del Fantasma. Pagano and Brian Cage vs Texano Jr and Joe Lider. Maximo, Murder Clown, and Taya Valkyrie vs La Mascara, Chessman, and Faby Apache. Killer Kross vs Dave the Clown vs La Parka Negra. Myztezuz Jr, Laredo Kid, and Hijo del Vikingo vs Mocho Cota Jr, Carta Brava Jr, and Tito Santana. Nino Hamburguesa, Lady Shani, and Dinastia vs Lady Maravilla, Villano III Jr, and Lanzelot.

FantasticaMania Line ups

I will post the top two matches on each show and anything I perceive to be important.

day 1: Fujin, Raijin, Toa Henare, and Kojima vs Shingo Takagi, Bushi, Naito, and Terrible. Kushida, Soberano, and Mistico vs Namahage, Cavernario, and Caristico.

day 2: The main event is the same as the first day. Jyushin Thunder Liger, Dragon Lee, and Volador Jr vs Namahage, Gran Guerrero, and Caristico.

day 3: Main event is the same again. Tiger Mask, Dragon Lee, and Volador Jr vs Namahage, Gran Guerrero, and Caristico.

day 4: I’m not sure what the line up is here. Volador and Mistico are billed as being in the main event an co-main event so I have no idea what’s up here. Not very New Japan like.

The deal here is there’s going to be some kind of tag team tournament that concludes on the last day.

day 5: Finally a different main event, Dragon Lee and Mistico vs Flyer and Volador Jr. Atlantis Jr and Atlantis vs Cuatrero and Sanson.

day 6: The full card isn’t released yet but we have a Soberano Cavernario special singles match and a tag match between Kojima, Henare, Fujin, and Raijin (These two are Sho and Yoh) vs Terrible, Naito, Bushi, and Takagi

day 7: The card is listed as the same as day 6. I’ll update next week if things change.

day 8: We have the “My dad is a heel wrestler” special tag match where guys reprise their roles from that movie.

Here & There

Well I’m not sure there’s anything else going on outside of the Lucha world as regards to Lucha talent. We’ll see if there’s any kind of working relationship between All Elite Wrestling and a Mexican promotion.

Winners: Nino Hamburguesa and Big Mami

Cody comes out. Cody says Hugo will be the Spanish ambassador. He claims Jericho and Omega will be in AAA. Konnan says you must come to him to make an announcement. Taurus and Rey Escorpion, and Texano beat on Cody now. Taurus spears Cody and Psycho Clown makes a save. Cody did challenge Taurus tonight but I still feel like that won’t happen.

(Reina de Reinas Championship) Lady Shani (Champion) vs La Hiedra vs Keyra vs Chica Tormenta

Match starts with them all charging each other. We get some light brawling and Hiedra and Shani are left in the ring. Chicka brings a table into the ring, this is a street fight they said on the preshow. Shani and Hiedra continue to exchange strikes. Chicka then nabs Shani and softens her up and suplexes her through a table. Keyra enters and hits a hurricanrana on Chicka then sets up a chair in her face in the corner and hits a drop kick followed by a vader bomb for a two count. Keyra then does a move and drops Hiedra on her head on a chair. Keyra argues with ref and Hiedra hits a power slam. Hiedra goes for a dive on Keyra but she hits her with a chair, then DDTs her on the apron. Chicka then power bombs Keyra on a chair and Shani smashes Chicka with a chair.

Keyra and Chicka fight on the apron then Keyra does a spanish fly off the apron onto a table. Shani then power bombs Hiedra for the win. Lady Shani pins Hiedra with a power bomb.

Faby comes out now after the match. The heel ref lays out Faby mid promo. Faby fights back and hits an arm drag then a back breaker. Keyra and Chicka come out to beat her up. Taya comes out from the back to save her. This will likely set up something in the future. Whenever their next show is.

Winner: Lady Shani

Taya Valkyrie, Daga, and Joe Lider vs Mocho Cota Jr, Carta Brava Jr, and Tito Santana

They start the matches brawling. Perros del Mal vs Poder de Norte. Lider tosses Brava int Cota. Daga takes out Carta and takes his shirt off to the women’s delight. Daga then head scissors Santana to the outside. Taya comes in and takes out Cota then works over Carta. Santana attacks her from behind when she poses. They take out Daga and Lider with chairs and team on Taya. Santana and Cota hold Taya’s legs up and Brava drop kicks her private parts. They continue to beat on Taya. Taya makes her own come back hitting knees to the corner on Santana and Brava. Daga chops down Brava then hits a death valley on Santana. Daga then hits a dive over the top on Cota. Taya hits a german suplex on Brava for a close two. Brava gets up and hits a modified back breaker on her but Lider hits him with a cookie tray. They all trade moves in the ring and Daga hits a snap German for a two count. Poder gets Daga down in the corner and they all hit him with consecutive attacks. Lider gets them all to the outside and Taya hits a top rope splash on Santana to the outside. Lider sets up Cota on a ladder. Daga comes in the ring and hits Lider with a chair. Then death valley’s him into the ladder. Daga has turned. Santana then hits a drop kick to the butt with a chair in the way on Lider for the win. Tito Santana hits a drop kick to the butt from the top on Lider’s butt with a chair in the way.

Now Taya is getting beat on and Chicka and Keyra come out to lay the boots. Now Faby is coming out to make the save. Faby signals for a handshake but while that happens Poder de Norte throws Lider off the stage into a table. Poor Joe Lider.

Winners: Mocho Cota Jr, Carta Brava, and Tito Santana

Pagano, Drago, and Puma King vs Averno, Chessman, and Super Fly

Super Fly is dressed like Venom and Averno like Batman. The match starts with them immediately brawling. We have weapons involved so this is another hardcore match, though like ECW i feel like every match is hardcore unless otherwise told. The OGTs get the advantage to start and team up on everyone. They rip Drago’s mask. They beat on Pagano next and Puma tries to make the save but fails. Drago dodges a double team attack then Pagano clotheslines two of them followed by a drop kick by Puma King. Chessman back drops Drago to the outside but he turns it into a dive on Averno. Pagano then dives through the middle rope on Chessman. Puma King and Super Fly go back and forth until Puma hits a flapjack then a super kick. Chessman and Averno enter to team on him. Puma King kicks Averno in the groin then dives on Super Fly. King and Pagano then do the fusion dance. Back in the ring Pagano and Chessman go back and forth and Pagano hit a hurricanrana. He tries to hit a swinging neck breaker I guess on Super Fly but they go different ways. Spot after spot is done, it’s completely chaos. Drago does a Canadian destroyer to Super Fly. After constant chaos we get a tower of doom spot. Puma King sun set flips over Super Fly on the apron and power bombs him but he misses and the edge of his head hits the table. Fuck. Pagano then botches a cutter on Chessman. Pagano and Chessman are on the top rope and they get pushed off by Averno into tables. Chessman is bleeding.

Winners: Averno, Chessman, and Super Fly

(Cage Match) Psycho Clown, Maximo, and Mamba vs Jeff Jarrett, Killer Kross, and La Mascara

The technicos get jumped during the introductions. Super Porky is outside cheering on his family. The inside of the ring was laced with weaponry. Psycho Clown is going to town with a cookie sheet. There is a lot of waffling with weapons going on here. A lot of working on Psycho Clown’s groin. Maximo and Mamba try to escape but they get stopped. Mascara works over Psycho Clown in front of Super Porky. Kross rolls out of the ring through the door. Does this count as an escape or was it something we weren’t supposed to see. Jarrett waffles Maximo with a guitar. Maximo is bleeding like a pig…a porky. Jeff Jarrett climbs to the outside of the ring. For some reason his teammates didn’t follow. He taunts Ms. Pena. Jarrett is kicking Super Porky’s walker. Psycho Clown conveniently climbs out to help. Clown just goes back in the ring. Mamba smartly climbs out. Kross drops Maximo on his head with a Saito suplex. Kross does it to Clown then Mascara hits Clown with a chair. Half of Clowns mask is ripped off. Mascara tells Kross to escape. He’s got it handled. Bad move i think. Mascara is getting cocky. He can escape whenever he wants. Mascara back drops Clown into a table. Maximo runs up the ropes and scales the cage and escapes. It’s just Psycho and Mascara. Clown rips his shirt off and they exchange strikes. The crowd is totally into it now, behind Psycho Clown. Mascara hits a back stabber and then unties Clowns mask a little. Clown sets up a table then smashes Mascara with a cookie sheet. Mascara then does the Rush corner drop kick and does the Ingobernables pose. He was a member once. He puts Clown’s mask on after demasking him. Maximo slides Clown a new mask. Clown depants Mascara as he climbs the catch, he catches him and power bombs him through the table. Clown escapes. Psycho Clown escapes to secure the win for his team.

Winners: Psycho Clown, Maximo, and Mamba

Backstage Faby Apache is being interviewed. The interviewer is talking to her about the ref.

Blue Demon Jr is coming out now. Blue Demon is just complaining about whatever. It’s gonna be Sunday when this main event starts. He basically said he doesn’t need the fans. They probably did this because he came across as a baby face during the last show by accident.

Rey de Reyes Tournament: Laredo Kid, Hijo Del Vikingo, Jack Evans, Sammy Guevara, Australian Suicide, Taurus, Golden Magic, Aerostar, and Myzteziz Jr

Hijo Del Vikingo is out first in this match where the rules have yet to be explained. Myzteziz is out next. Seems like it’s royal rumble style. Both these guys start. They’re tag team partners by the way. Vikingo does a dive over the top so it’s not an over the top battle royal. Myzteziz then does a huge tornado dive over the top. Eclipse Jr  comes in next. They just keep playing Eclipse’s theme. Finally stops 40 seconds into it. Eclipse does a dive onto Vikingo. This is chaos. Taurus is in next. He head butts Myzteziz and runs into Eclipse. He hits a Samoan drop on Myzteziz. He does a running shoulder block to Vikingo. Eclipse does a moonsault to the outside. Laredo Kid comes out next and accidentally hits the sword and it falls.

Guevara leaps off the ropes and Kid hits a cutter then a 450 on Guevara for the pin. Aerostar, Kid, and Vikingo team up on Taurus. Taurus fights back with a clothesline then drops Aerostar on his head. Taurus gets Kid on his shoulders then catches Taurus for a double fall away slam. But Taurus poses and Kid catches him with a reverseranna, Vikingo hits a frog splash and Aerostar hits a splash on Kid’s shoulders. They all pin him. Taurus eliminated. And then they were three. The two tag partners Kid and Vikingo beat up on Aerostar. Kid gets Aerostar up for a vertical suplex and Vikingo shot gun drop kicks him into a double team attack. Aerostar gets his feet up on Vikingo then dodges Kid making him fall out of the ring. He then hits a middle rope diving head butt on Kid. He hits a code breaker on Vikingo then hits a splash off the top. Vikingo eliminated. Vikingo gets helped out so he might have gotten head butt by Aerostar. Kid kicks him and hits a flipping DDT for a close two. Kid hits a Michinoku driver and goes to the top and hits a 450 for a two count. Kid puts him on the top rope but gets knocked off and code breakered. Aerostar hits a big splash off the top for a close two. Aerostar goes to the well too many times. But he fights off Kid and crotches him. He hits a code breaker from the top then rolls into a cutter for the win. Aerostar wins with a rolling cutter.

Mistico, Dragon Lee, and Diamante Azul vs Mr. Niebla, Mephisto, and Rey Bucanero

CMLL’s sound just goes out during the entrances. I’m sure they won’t fix that like their Monday show. Story for this match and future shows is, Shocker has disappeared off of CMLL’s future bookings so there’s another issue with him. This happened sometime last year as well. If you remember with Mr. Niebla he was drunk during a match and they went to the finish. It pissed off the participants. Anyway to start the match, Azul and Bucanero lock up and fight for take downs until they both get one and then trade moves. Niebla comes in the ring quick to knock Mistico off the apron to crotch him on the barricade. Mephisto fights Lee on the ramp way. Mephisto throws him into the walk way stairs. Mephisto gets Lee on the turnbuckle and grabs at his mask. Mephisto then throws Lee into the announcers table. Zakarias then midget goes for a 619 on Mistico, but Azul knocks him over. A whole lot of brawling in this match. The ref finally had it with all the brawling so he DQ’s Mephisto for crotching Mistico. Or just because the rudos wouldn’t listen. Let’s go with that. First Fall: Mistico wins the fall because the rudos won’t listen to the ref.

There’s more brawling to start this round as well as you could suspect. Dragon Lee drop kicks Mephisto the hits a dive over the top rope. Azul hits a sunset flip on Bucanero for a two count. Niebla gets thrown to the outside and then Mistico hurricanrana’s Bucanero to the outside then hits a dive. Azul then hits a dive through the middle rope on Niebla.

Oro hurricanrana’s Terrible to the outside and then hits a dive through the middle rope. On that dive however it looks like Terrible actually dislocated his shoulder. The ref went to the outside and helped put it back in place. Wow. The doctor is still checking on him. He’s definitely trying to tough it out during the finishing sequence. Oro gets him down and puts him in a sharpshooter for the win. Third Fall: Angel de Oro submits Terrible with a sharpshooter.

Bestia tries to brawl afterwards but to no avail. His partner isn’t able to help. Finally they are shaving their heads. Bestia at least. They’ll probably do Terrible back stage. As I say that Terrible comes out like a man with his arm up to get his just due.
