Congress Theatre Lucha 09/19

So. There’s a lucha show at Congress Theatre this weekend.

If you can’t read that, it’s Santo & Mistico vs Averno & Mephsito, and then other matches which don’t matter.

Congress Theatre’s address is 2135 N. Milwaukee Avenue, Chicago, IL 60647. Tickets are $10 for kids, $15 for General Admission, and $20 for Ringside; I’ve got no idea what the turnout will be (this is the first time Santo or Mistico have been in and they’ve charged for GA tickets, I think), and I’d don’t know what GA will turn out to mean this time, but I’d pay the extra $5 to be at ringside.

“5:00 PM” is listed (though not on the poster) – I think that’s gonna be Doors Open time. But that’s just a guess.

It sounds like the same basic crew will be in LA on Saturday – check for that info – and Santo’s is in Las Vegas on Friday for with a lot of So Cal types and LA Park. But I’m not going to anyone of those shows.

Is any one else planning to go this show? I’m going to be there; just trying to figure out when and how.

09/19: IWRG, Box Y Lucha, AAA

For the person who was asking, the pictures from Friday’s show are up on CMLL‘s site.

If you haven’t seen the anniversary show, go down a post.

AAA’s updated their site with notes about their card, so we’ll try that once more:

AAA TV (SUN) 09/17 El Toreo de Cuatro Caminos Results [AAA]
1) Laredo Kid b Kaoma Jr. and El Apache [dream, toreno, final]
to the top of the cards for Laredo Kid. maybe.
2) Cinthia Moreno, El Elegido, Mascara Sagrada, Pimpinela DQ La Diabolica, Mini Abismo Negro, Pirata Morgan, Polvo de Estrellas
AAA says Hator is the newest Guapo, but Scorpio Jr. is leader of the group. AAA brings up the rumors of Emilio jumping, which I guess means he’s coming in later?
3) AJ Styles, Homicide, Low-Ki, Samoa Joe DQ Abismo Negro, Charly Manson, Electroshock, Histeria [sf]
Charly is a full time Viper, and he and Electroshock are friends again.
4) Crazy Boy, Joe Lider, Juventued Guerrera, Psicosis II b Chessman, Cuervo, Escoria, Ozz [sf]
‘extreme’ style. Crazy Boy pinned Ozz.
5) Tiffany, Estrellita DQ Tiana Ringer, Traci Brooks
Sounds like Christy showed up despite her injury, which is always good. Tiffany turned on Estrellita, which actually got her team the win. Everyone should turn on each other, I guess.
6) Alan Stone, Hator, Scorpio Jr., Zumbido b Intocable, Oriental, Super Porky, Zorro
After Intocable got fouled by a low blow, Alan Stone got his revenge pin.
7) AJ Styles, Low-Ki, Samoa Joe b Crazy Boy, Joe Lider, Juventued Guerrera [final]
Psicosis was out due to the extreme match, and Homicide due to the martiente
8) Gronda II, La Parka Jr., Octagon DQ Abyss, Jeff Jarrett, Konnan
Everyone in the building interfered. AAA seems to be hinting towards a La Parka Jr. vs Jeff Jarrett NWA Heavyweight Title match, which would be epic.

AAA’s update spends a lot of time talking up TNA and saying a lot of fans were there to see those guys, and I have a hard time believing such things. Besides the odd Emilio reference, they also mention that Konnan is hurting and looking bad in the ring again. There’s also a last line mention of touring the US in October.

CMLL (MON) 09/18 Arena Puebla Results
1) Ares, Bobby Jack, Furia Chicana b Blue Center, King Jaguar, Super Star
2) Mini Damian, Mini Halloween, Mini Mr. Aguila b Forajido, Mini Olimpico, Ultimo Dragoncito
3) Black Terry, Espiritu Maligno, Yankee Star b Asturiano, Centella de Oro, the Tigre
4) Dos Caras Jr., Heavy Metal, Negro Casas b Averno, Mephisto, Shocker
5) Rey Bucanero b Ultimo Guerrero [CMLL LH]

Lots of IWRG stuff, because we didn’t have lineups yesterday…

IWRG (THU) 09/14 Arena Naucalpan Results
1) Golem b Aguila Misteriosa
2) Gran Cuchillo, Halcon Salvaje b Comando Mega, Shuriken
3) Ave Fenix, Fabian el Gitano, Free Lance b Black Jaguar, Black Stone, Xibalba
Free Lance, the new Panterita (and probably should be spelled Freelance), won the match with a lance (dive). That seems fair.
4) Cerebro Negro, Dr. Cerebro, Suicida b Black Terry, Fantasma de la Opera, Okumura
Takes a moment to remember the Cerebros are tecnicos now. Black Terry’s team wants a super libre rematch next week.
5) Dos Caras Jr., Mascara Sagrada, Solar DQ Alex Koslov, Mascara Ano 2000 Jr., Veneno
This was Mascara Ano’s debut, and he low blowed Dos Caras to end the match. What a debut.

IWRG (SUN) 09/17 Arena Naucalpan Results
1) Guardian de la Noche b Forastero
2) Gran Cuchillo, Intrepid b Belcebu, Macho II
3) Fabian el Gitano, Marco Rivera, Star Boy b Avisman, Black Stone, Ultra Mega
4) Freelance L Cerebo Negro, Enterrador 2000, Mascara Ano 2000 Jr., Sagrado, Tony Rivera, Hijo del Diablo, Dr. Cerebro, Okumura, Cyborg [cage of death, hair]
Tarzan Boy was supposed to be in this, but he was still hurting and the promtoion wouldn’t let him go. Cyborg replaced him. Seems like a bunch of other names were switched too. Order of exit was Sagrado, Tony Rivera, Dr. Cerebro, Enterrador 2000, Cyborg, Mascara Ano 2000 Jr., Hijo del Diablo, and Okumura. In the final, Cerebro Negro defeated Freelance for his hair. After the match, Okumura return and laid out both men, low blowing Cerebro Negro and giving a matinete to Freelance.

Box Y Lucha posted a bunch of new articles
Black Warrior talks the mask match. Mistico has a lot of fans, but he’s not on in-ring level of Atlantis or Black Warrior. Warrior says Mistico only knows how to fly, but Warrior knows how to fight.
Mistico is angry about the grand theft performed to Black Warrior & Atlantis. He’s not scared about the match. Mistico also says the feud will defintely not be over with the mask match, and I’m not sure that’s something I’d say.
AAA held a press conference without Antonio Pena. That’s probably not good, but it’s mostly another interview about the blasted stamp album. I so don’t get this. Anyway, the AAA lawyer conducting the event claims Pena just has been very busy organizing the AAA tours of the US (late October/early November) and Central America (late November) and he’s had a small case of Bronchus, but he’s completely fine now. You know, I’d believe Pena is completely fine before I’d believe anyone in AAA is actually organizing anything. Shocker jump is explaining by his contract coming up, Shocker giving them the impression he was going to re-sign, and then not actually re-signing. Even though Scorpio Jr./Porky was built up in a hair match, the lawyer claims they never planned to do a Scorpio Jr/Porky hair match. My eyes, they deceive me. The lawyer also says Latin Lover is a free agent, but Pena owns the name.
Rey Mysterio Jr. thinks they should have a WrestleMania in Mexico. Sure.
Tarzan Boy is not going to AAA, and those rumors are wrong. I hadn’t even heard those rumors! Apparently people were telling him he was the mystery guy in the main event, and he’s was like “Huh? No.”
Quick Bio of Rey Misterio Jr.
Dr. Wagner Sr. Obit
Rambo talks about one of the two times in his career he had to referee; he was traveling with his father’s promotion, and a referee was short, so they needed him to fill in. He didn’t have any suitable clothes, so wrestlers gave him some – including some pants which were gimmicked to be ripped off by the wrestlers during the match. Quite the prank.

LUCHAS 2000 says Kronos (Brazo de Plata Jr.) will be joining his father in AAA soon. Maximo, Porky’s other wrestling son, is unlikely to go anywhere because he’s got a good spot in CMLL.

Guerreros del Ring #53 (1st Anniversary show) has a Mil Mascaras cover.

Hijo de Rey Misterio is being advertised for the 10/01 RXLL show.
