01/12: AAA, Sangre Azteca, Puebla, Mexico

AAA’s updated their news section with a long article about the new stars of 2006. They say they plan to go to Central America, the US, and possibly even Spain in ’07. Nothing about future TV tapings past the next one.

Ovaciones interviewed Sangre Azteca, who hopes to make his welterweight title reign as strong as the ones of Santo and Blue Demon. Good luck on that. He hopes to continue to feuding with La Mascara, Texano Jr., Sagrado, Maximo, Shocker, and Satanico; that’s a lot of people to fight. This is all hype for his semi-main appearance tonight, so it’s kinda funny he doesn’t mention Volador Jr. since he’s facing him tonight – I mean, why stop naming names?

CMLL (MON) 01/15 Arena Puebla Lineup
1) King Jaguar, Fenix vs Mr. Rafaga, Espiritu Maligno
2) the Tiger, Lestat, Asturiano vs Siki Osama, Fuerza Chicana, Furia Chicana
3) Mascara Purpura, Texano Jr., Stuka Jr. vs Loco Max, Maniacop, Nitro
4) Mistico, Negro Casas, Volador Jr., Ultimo Dragon vs Averno, Mephisto, Efesto, Tarzan Boy
5) Ultimo Guerrero vs Shocker

That seems like a loaded up card for Puebla. Is the AAA taping (on Saturday) close enough where they’re competing here?

El Sol De Tulancingo has a story about the local lucha scene – there isn’t one, there’s no promotions, though somehow there are schools. But they’re hoping for better.

Guerreros del Ring Special #5 is on Atlantis.

Here’s tonight’s Arena Mexico card:

CMLL (FRI) 01/12 Arena Mexico
1) Sombra de Plata & Super Nova vs Polvora & Vaquero
2) Fabian el Gitano, Leono, Texano Jr. vs Arkangel, Loco Max, Nitro
3) Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto vs Blue Panther, Negro Casas, Sagrado
4) La Mascara, Shocker, Volador Jr. vs Alex Koslov, Sangre Azteca, Ultimo Guerrero
5) Dr. Wagner Jr., Heavy Metal, Rey Bucanero vs Hector Garza, Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Mr. Aguila

Fake storylines for this show
– Main Event is a sorta-#1 contenders match for two factions (Perros/tecnicos), since they’ve both been challenging the Guerreros in non-title matches
– Semimain is continuation of La Mascara/Sangre, and it’s the Alex/Sangre brotherhood. Also, they should be plugging Ultimo/Shocker in Puebla.
– I can’t think of anything to make up about the tercera. Negro vs Averno? Tag titles? Efesto? No, it’s just there
– Segunda is match 230 in the best of 433 series between these two sides.
– opener is just to get Super Nova on the show.

There shall be no Guerreros del Ring notes tomorrow morning (maybe Sunday?), but I may get Arena Mexico results up.
