04/07 News: Mexico preview

Yes, that’s a real movie. I got the poster from el Martiente.

Ovaciones has a basic Arena Mexico preview.

CMLL (FRI) 04/07 Arena Mexico
1) Rey Tigre, Tigre Blanco, Tigre Metálico vs Apocalipsis, Dr. X, Hooligan
2) Metro, Virus, Volador Jr. vs Hombre Sin Nombre, Misterioso II, Sangre Azteca
3) Felino, La Máscara, Último Dragón vs Olímpico, Shigeo Okumura, Takemura
4) Rey Bucanero, Tarzan Boy, Último Guerrero vs Damián 666, Héctor Garza, Mr. Águila
5) LA Park, Mistico, Negro Casas vs Atlantis, Averno, Mephisto

It feels like a run of the mill card with no big stories to be told. Smaller questions:
– will La Park get along with his teammates, since Wagner is not among them?
– are they setting up another tag title match?
– is there any new progress in the Guerreros/Perros battles?
– do they have anything in particular planned for Takemura in this two week run?
– is the rematch in the segunda going anywhere or just a one week blip?

Alexis has CMLL Magazine #34 (page 1, page 2) up on his site; look at Tuesday’s card before it’s released, and marvel at the La Flecha picture I will eventually steal for the roster page.

To preview this Saturday’s lucha event at the Arizona State Museum, the Arizona Daily Star talked to one of the guys working the free lucha matches (out on the lawn!), the Prophet. I was trying to figure out who was working north of the border in openers as Cuervo, since it wouldn’t make sense for the AAA guy with that name – and it turns out it’s the Prophet’s arch-rival. Small world.
