Previews for tonight’s Arena Mexico show
Esto has an interview with Mistico. His big plan for 2007 is to add more colors to his gear. (Also beat Averno for his title.) He’s also like to win a top rudo mask this year and continue giving 120%. Esto also has a general preview.
La Prensa recaps the Averno/Mistico feud, starting back with the last time they started a year with a singles match.
– In previewing tonight’s Arena Mexico show, Ovaciones mentions that the five fans with the best drawings of Mistico will get a special prize.

Ovaciones also has an article on Mini Mascara Ano 2000, who works a cook in Mexico City during the week.

El Sol de Tulancingo has a few notes from that Crazy Boy show (though no results.)

El Manana de Matamoros has an interview with Kaoma Jr., who claims he was never trained. Make your own joke here.

A thread on El Martiente was asking “Who’s the Chris Benoit of Mexico?”, and I can’t believe Ultimo Guerrero’s second. I think Blue Panther’s great, but their stytles are completely different, especially the current day versions. UG doesn’t have the world experience Benoit and some of the others on the list do (though tapes and blending of the styles have made the world a lot smaller place in the last few years), but he can be the same complete and full throttle wrestler Benoit is, and he’s got the same high respect level where everyone believes he’s the best wrestler in the company, even if he’s not pushed as the top one

Ultimo’s not a perfect fit, but he’s darn close. Guys like Blue Panther (and Negro Navarro and Solar I, at least in the matches they’ve been doing) aren’t found much in the US right now – maybe Brian Danielson is the closest comparison.

The guy who posted “Joe Lider” is funny.

One thought to “01/05: Xalapa, Guadalajara, Mexico”

  1. You missed Olimpico Laguna’s results??

    I think they meant “best technical wrestler” with that one, but the styles are completely disimilar, Ultimo Guerrero, besides being the best luchador for the last few years, is the most important guy in his company in how he mantains the main event for them… simply put, Olimpico, Tarzan Boy and Atlantis are tecnicos rejects which get to be the top rudos just by hanging around Guerrero…
