CMLL (FRI) 09/13/2013 Arena México [CMLL, CNN Mexico, Esto, LuchaWorld, MedioTiempo (masks), MedioTiempo (rest), Porra Fresa, Viva La Vida, Yahoo! Deportes]
***CMLL 80th Anniversary show***
1) Ishii, Namajague, Shigeo Okumura b Fuego, Rey Cometa, Stuka Jr. *
Namajague wore his mask to the ring and both teams entered as groups. Ishii's CMLL debut; he and Stuka hit each other hard (which seems to be Ishii's spot here.) Japan took 1/3 with Ishii beating Stuka via delayed superplex.
2) Euforia, Mephisto, Niebla Roja b Brazo de Plata, Máximo, Titán * *
Rudos took 1/3. Mephisto had a new scary mask. Super Porky actually did the much teased tope for the first time in years (and lived!) Euforia submitted Maximo and Mephisto lifted up Porky for La Rosa in a strong show of strength.
3) Marco Corleone, Rush, Vangellys b Negro Casas, Shocker, Terrible [Relevos Increíbles] * *
Straight falls. Vangelis and Marco beat Shocker and Terrible in the first while everyone was watching Negro and Rush fight on the outside. Negro/Rush was the center of the match, though the crowd was very into Shocker too. Shocker pinned Vangelis & Marco pinned Terrible, then Shocker & Marco spilled out of the ring. Rush landed a top rope double on Rush, Rush kicked out, and Rush eventually got the pin by using the ropes. Rush was very happy with himself - crowd was not happy with him.
4) Averno b Blue Panther [hair] * *
Submission rules, as promised. Panther submitted Averno with a palanca. Averno surprised Panther with heelhook in the second. Lots of back and forth in the third fall, including Averno reversing holds into pinfalls but Tirantes refusing to count. Panther caught Averno in his armbar, Mephisto threw in the towel, Panther let go, Mephisto grabbed the towel and pulled it out before Tirantes saw it, Panther was distracted and caught in a sleeper by Averno for the win. Panther got his hair shaved in the ring.
5) La Sombra & Volador Jr. b Atlantis & Último Guerrero [winners advance] * * *
Atlantis & UG dominated the early portion of the one fall match, both sides hit big moves, and the Sombra & Volador team defeated Atlantis & UG with a Brillante Driver and Spanish Fly. Crowd hated this result and chanted Fraude loudly during the rest of the show and after it.
6) Máscara Dorada, Místico, Valiente © b Dragón Rojo Jr., Pólvora, Rey Escorpión [CMLL TRIOS] * * *
Tecnicos took 2/3 to keep the titles (second defense.) Crowd chanted FRAUDE through the match, but did respond to the closing dives by the tecnicos.
7) La Sombra b Volador Jr. [mask] * * *
Sombra took falls 2/3, the last a long fall won via super Canadian Destroyer. Crowd chanted Fraude during the first two falls, but eventually supported Volador and went back to being unhappy after he lost. Volador Jr. was announced as Ramon Ibarra Rivera, 32 years old, 17 years a luchador.
