In Friday’s (03/18) Arena Mexico main event, Perro Aguayo Senior and Perro Aguayo Junior beat Cien Caras and Mascara Ano 2000 in a hair/hair match.
CMLL FRI (03/18) Arena Mexico results (compiled from Satanico’s Mansion’s board via Luchaworld, and CMLL.com)
1) Dr. X/Nitro/Sangre Azteca b Felino/Safari/Volador Jr.
2) Park/Warrior/Porky b Universo/Apolo/Satanico
3) Rey/Averno/Mephisto b Atlantis/Panther/Negro
4) Wagner/Shocker/Mistico b Ultimo/Tarzan/Hector
5) Aguayo Sr./Aguayo Jr. b Cien/MY2K [hair/hair vs hair/hair]
Universo interfered to low blow Perro Jr., but Perro Sr. (out of the match) did the same to MY2K, and Junior got the pin.
Reports (WO.com) had it as a complete sell out, with people being turned away at the door – which, of course, is why they were really smart not to give away anything else.
I still think they’re doing Perro Aguayo Sr. vs Universo 2000, but my question is: if they could sell out Arena Mexico with this (lesser?) tag match, shouldn’t they consider a bigger building for the singles match? Maybe it won’t be as a big deal. Maybe it’ll be Perro Junior vs Universo.
Anyway, the wrestler business is not exactly filled with people who’ve willingly retired after selling out a 12,000 seat building, so we’re just marking time till Perro Aguayo Sr.’s (and Cien’s) next appearance. CMLL.com makes the case this is Cien and Senior’s goodbye, which would be more effective if we didn’t say goodbye to Cien three months ago.
On to this week:

3) Virus/Misterioso/Brazo de Oro vs Veneno/Arkangle/Bestia Salvaje
4) Porky/Satanico/Alan vs Pierroth/Hijo de Pierroth/Pierroth Jr.

CMLL FRI (03/25) Arena Mexico lineup

5) LA Park/Heavy Metal/Shocker vs Halloween/Damien/Perro Aguayo Jr.
Guess they’re saving the first team with Negro or Felino for the Negro show. The first line of hype actually says ‘Heavy Metal returns to Mexico after 13 years of absence’, which confirms long held suspicions that AAA takes place an an alternate universe.

2) Tigre Blanco/Tigre Metalico/Brazo de Plata Jr. vs Zayco/Jeque/Messala
