In November 2012 the Mexican professional wrestling promotion Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL) held five CMLL Super Viernes shows, all of which took place in Arena México on Friday nights. Some of the matches from Super Viernes were taped for CMLL's weekly shows that aired in Mexico the week following the Super Viernes show. The shows featured various professional wrestling matches, often with different wrestlers involved in pre-existing scripted feuds or storylines. Wrestlers portrayed either villains (referred to as "rudos" in Mexico) or fan favorites ("tecnicos" in Mexico) as they followed a series of tension-building events, which culminate in a wrestling match or series of matches. Being professional wrestling events matches are not won legitimately; they are instead won via predetermined outcomes to the matches that is kept secret from the general public.
November 2, 2012
Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre's (CMLL) November 2, 2012 Super Viernes show featured six matches wrestling matches in total. The main event was the first singles match between rivals Rey Escorpión and Último Guerrero, escalating the storyline conflict that has been building for close to a year. The "Lightning" Match was scheduled to be Starman and Skándalo face off only one week after Skándalo stole Starman's mask during a match, but Starman was replaced with Delta. The show was CMLL's Dia de los Muertos celebration.
The November 2nd show coincided with the Mexican celebration of the Dia de los Muertos ("Day of the dead"), which led some wrestlers to paint their faces in the traditional Dia de los Muertos style as white skulls, including Leono in the opening match. Leono teamed up with Soberano, Jr. facing the team of Apocalipsis and Inquisidor to start the Super Viernes show with a Tag Team that most of the Super Viernes shows starts with. The end came when Inquisidor and Apocalipsis used underhanded tactics to cheat their way to a victory over their young opponents. In the second match Los Ladies de Polanco (Princesa Blanca and Princesa Sujei) commemorated Dia de los Muertos by dressing up as Catrinas, including skull paint, long black dresses and veiled hats as part of their introductions. Los Ladies teamed up with La Comandante to take on the team of Dark Angel, Estrellita and Luna Magica. This match was Estrellita's first Super Viernes match back after recovering from an injury. The returning Estrellita won the first match for her team, but ultimately lost the match for her team as she was pinned by La Comandante in the third and final fall of the match.
The "Lightning Match" was originally planned to have Skándalo face off against Starman, continuing a storyline from the previous week where Skándalo ripped off Starman's mask and stole it. The plans were changed on Tuesday night when Starman was replaced by Delta, no explanation for the change was given, nor was Starman injured. Skándalo was accompanied by the Los Guerreros Tuareg valet Isis for the match. In the end Delta was able to execute his signature Delta Especial move (A Moonsault) and defeat Skándalo seven minutes and twenty seconds into the match. The fourth match of the evening was a best two out of three falls Six-man tag team match between the tecnico (wrestlers who portray the "good guys") team of Ángel de Oro, Blue Panther and Titán and the rudo ("Bad guy") team of Averno, Mephisto and Pólvora. The two teams split the first two falls between them in quick succession, then in the third fall Averno began targeting Titán in his attacks, making sure that the veteran rudo punished the young up-and-coming tecnico throughout the match. In the end Averno pulled Titán's mask off in view of the referee, causing his team to be disqualified. After the match Averno taunted his now mask-less opponent, furthering the budding rivalry between the two. New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) representative Tama Tonga continued his learning excursion in the semi-main event as he teamed up with two members of La Fuerza TRT, El Terrible and Tiger to face the tecnico team of Atlantis, Rush and La Sombra. After the first two falls were split 1-1 the two teams went into the third and longest fall of the match, with no clear dominant faction. In the end Tama Tonga got the victory for his team, two falls to one.
The storyline dispute between Último Guerrero and Rey Escorpión that led to that week's main event was very evident even before the match actually started. Guerrero entered the ring first, then attacked Rey Escorpión while he was still on the floor, before the bell rang. Guerrero dove out of the ring and knocked Escorpión down, not once but three times in a row, inflicting enough damage that Rey Escorpión was not able to get inside the ring before the referee counted to 20, giving Último Guerrero the first fall by count out. Once Escorpión recovered he was able to fight back in the second round, he fought back against Guerrero, even going so far as to tearing at Guerrero's mask using his teeth. Escorpión gained a measure of revenge on Guerrero when he applied Último Guerrero's own Pulpo Guerrero ("The Guerrero Octopus") to Guerrero and forced him to submit, tying the match at one fall each. During the third fall Rey Escorpión teammate Dragón Rojo, Jr. came to ringside to distract the referee. Escorpión tried to take advantage of the distraction to land a foul kick on Guerrero, only for Guerrero to block the move and then land a foul kick on Escorpión instead while the referee was still distracted. The underhanded tactics paid off as Guerrero took the third and deciding fall in a very heated main event. Following the match both parties made verbal threats to each other over the house microphones, indicating that the issues between the two factions were far from settled.

November 9, 2012
Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre's (CMLL) November 9, 2012 Super Viernes show featured six matches wrestling matches in total. The main event saw CMLL World Trios Champion La Bufete del Amor ("The Law of Love") Marco Corleone, Rush and Maximo facing Volador, Jr., El Terrible and Último Guerrero in a non-title match. The show featured five additional matches. One of the storylines going into the show centered around Titán and Averno who will be on opposite sides in the semi-main event. The storyline between the two started the previous week after Averno humiliated Titán by unmasking him in the middle of a match.
In the opening match second generation luchador Stigma. with his chest painted to resemble The Incredible Hulk, teamed up with the Distrito Federal Welterweight Championship Sensei to take on the rudo ("Bad guys") team of Bobby Zavala and Cholo. Stigma got the third and deciding fall for his team, in what was described as a "memorable" performance. The second match of the night was originally booked to have Mini-Estrella Astral team up Fantasy and Último Dragóncito, but on the prior Tuesday Astral got badly hurt during an Infierno en el Ring Steel cage match. Astral was the sixth person to exit the cage when he tried to perform a Moonsault of the top of the cage onto Mercurio, Aéreo and Fantasy who were on the floor. Due to the cage mesh breaking earlier in the match, Astral got caught up on the cage and landed awkwardly on the three men on the floor. The bad fall caused Astral to be rushed out of the arena for immediate attention and Mercurio had to be carried to the back as well due to the impact of Astral. Due to the injuries sustained he was replaced by Acero. The rudo team, Demus 3:16, Pequeño Olímpico and Pierrothito, had all suffered various injuries during the same match but seemed to be okay on Friday night. The rudo trio consisted of the reigning CMLL World Mini-Estrella Champion (Olímpico), the reigning Mexican National Lightweight Champion (Pierrothito) and one of the most experienced Mini-Estrellas in the division, an advantage that was evident as the team won both the first and the last fall of the match, taking the last fall by submission as Pierrothito forced Dragoncito to give up. The Lightning Match (10 minute time limit and only one fall as opposed to the traditional three fall matches CMLL prefers) featured the experienced rudo Sangre Azteca take on the high flying Fuego, who was one half of the CMLL Arena Coliseo Tag Team Championship team with Stuka, Jr.. Neither wrestler dominated the match, but Sangre Azteca took the victory in five minutes, thirty seconds when he countered Fuego's move off the top rope with a dropkick followed by a pinfall. CMLL introduced Puma King as simply "Puma" during the fourth match, which may or may not be an indicator of a permanent name change. Puma teamed up with La Fievre Amarilla ("Yellow fever"), the team of Okumura and Namajague to take on Rey Cometa, Stuka, Jr. and Tritón. The match served as a continuation of the storyline between Puma and Rey Cometa, that had already seen Puma win a match to unmask Rey Cometa at the CMLL 79th Anniversary Show. The two kept the intensity up with Rey Cometa pinning Puma to win the first fall and Puma pinning Rey Cometa to win the second fall. In the third fall Okumura took advantage of a distracted referee to land an illegal low blow on Stuka, Jr. to get the third fall for his team The fifth match centered around the developing rivalry between experienced rudo Averno and the up-and-coming tecnico Titán that had started the previous week. For this match Averno teamed up with Niebla Rojo and Pólvora while Titán was joined by Guerrero Maya, Jr. and La Sombra. The focus lay solidly on the feud between Averno and Titán throughout the match, especially as Averno began to tear at Titán's mask, ripping it open. Averno's team took the first fall, then Averno himself pinned Titán after he applied his signature "Devil's Wings" move (a Spinning lifting sitout double underhook facebuster). Following the match Averno challenged Titán to defend his Mexican National Welterweight Championship against Averno the following week, a challenge Titán accepted.
In the main event CMLL World Trios Champions La Bufete del Amor (Spanish for "The Law of Love") Marco Corleone, Rush and Maximo, showed their team unity by wearing same colored American football jerseys as they came to the ring. The opposing team saw El Terrible and Último Guerrero team up with enmascarado ("Masked wrestler") Volador, Jr., who for the night wore a mask and full body suit resembling a Na'vi from the Avatar movie The rudo team of El Terrible, Volador, Jr. and Último Guerrero took the first fall, while La Bufete won the second fall. In the third and final fall El Terrible forced Marco Corleone to submit to a Half Boston Crab.

The main event was the group known as Los Guerreros del Infierno (Spanish for "The Infernal Warriors") led by Último Guerrero as well as Euforia and Niebla Roja. Los Guerreros faced off against three of CMLL's top tecnicos ("Good guys") Atlantis, La Sombra and Diamante Azul. In the semi-main event Titán defended the Mexican National Welterweight Championship against Averno as a continuation of a storyline feud that started two weeks prior.

The rudo groups known as Los Guerreros Tuareg and Los Cancerberos del Infierno had had an on-again, off-again storyline rivalry going since the formation of Los Cancerberos in late 2009. On the night for this Super Viernes show Guerrero Tuareg Hooligan teamed up with Los Cancerberos members Raziel and Virus to take on the team of Hombre Bala, Jr., Pegasso and Super Halcón, Jr.. During the match Hooligan made a mistaken that led to Pegasso being in the perfect position to force Virus to submit to win the match for his team in the third fall. Following the loss Raziel and Virus attacked their partner Hooligan, beating him up and tearing the top half of Hooligan's mask off as a result. The third match of the night was a one-fall match with a 10-minute time limit, called a "Lightning Match" and saw Rudo Mephisto wrestle against tecnico Diamante who had participated in a series of "Lightning" matches throughout November.

Moments later Negro Casas forced Rush to submit to ensure their team took the first fall of the match. The tecnico team managed to even the score minutes later, tying the match at one fall each. During the third fall the rudo Mascotas got involved in the match, with Volador, Jr. tossing his Mascota Mije onto Rush, and moments later La Peste Negras Mascota Zacarias the Parrot execute a Tiger feint kick to the head of Rush as well. The tecnico team was able to turn the tables on their opponents, allowing their own Mascota KeMonito to beat up Zacarias. In the end miscommunication between Volador, Jr. and his partners allowed Shocker to escape a submission hold and then apply his trademark La Reienera (Modified spinning backbreaker rack) to Negro Casas to win the match for his team.
Mexican National Welterweight Championship
The fifth match of the night had Titán defend his Mexican National Welterweight Championship against challenger Averno following several weeks of Averno humiliating the champion during Best two out of three falls Six-man tag team matches.

The fans showed their appreciation for the action packed entertaining match by throwing money into the ring, a tradition in Lucha Libre after a great match.
The main event revealed why Diamante Azul was replaced in the fourth match of the night as Diamante Azul took the place of Místico La Nueva Era who had injured his shoulder in the week leading up to the show. Místico was on hand to announce that he would be unable to wrestle for approximately three weeks due to the injury. Azul teamed with Atlantis and La Sombra to fight against Los Guerreros del Infierno ("The Infernal Warriors";Euforia, Niebla Roja and Último Guerrero). The match was another chapter in an ongoing storyline between Atlantis and Último Guerrero that stretched back to 2011 when Atlantis left Los Guerreros del Infierno, causing bad blood between himself and Guerrero.
