01/18: IWRG, Box Y Lucha


IWRG (SUN) 01/14 Arena Naucalpan Results
1) Trauma I, Trauma II b Golem, Puma King
2) Bacteria, Freelance, Turbo b Avisman, Black Terry, Black Thunder
3) Cerebro Negro, Dr. Cerebro, Suicida DQ El Hijo del Diablo, Fantasma de la Ópera, Veneno
4) Camorra, Canek, Mascara Ano 2000 b Dos Caras, Negro Navarro, Sagrado
5) Electroshock b Mascara Sagrada [1, IWRG IC HEAVY]

Electro gets his title shot versus Canek on 02/04; I’m shocked they’ve announced the date. Trios champs lost the tercera when Fantasma piledrove Suicida, which will do it to you every time.

Ovaciones’ preview of IWRG’s Sunday card says the Corp/tecnicos atomicos has been changed to a trios match for the belts.

AAA’s redesigned their site. It’s still not great, but it’s better than a few hours ago when they had some completely unreadable buttons up. They didn’t actually add much of new content.

In today’s Ovaciones, Coco Rojo and Super Muneco hype up this weekend’s VIP show by talking about having a mask match…sometime later. For now, it’ just a singles match.

WWE pushed it’s Mexico tour back a week.

03/22 (THU) Mexico City
03/23 (FRI) Mexico City
03/24 (SAT) Chihuahua (not Tijuana)
03/25 (SUN) Monterrey

…so CMLL is totally running the week before. I wonder what they’ll do in a Arena Coliseo Monterrey that week.

Tickets range between $23 up to $183 US. I think Chris Benoit is the biggest lucha libre name value draw included in the list of people on this tour (subject to change); Chavo’s there too, but he hasn’t had much of a Mexican career. They’re going after a different fanbase, so maybe that’ll be fine, but it didn’t seem like things were strong enough last time to do two shows in the same city. Rey Mysterio is not listed as participating at this time.

Sunday is Brazo de Plata’s 30 year anniversary of starting his lucha libre career.

  1. Looking back, the 2006 anniversary show was said to be on Sep 15, and then moved to 29th, AAA’s Verano ran on 17th, while WWE was in Mexico City the next week, I think running the show before the other guys is better than what they did on the anniv. Yes, I guess March 16 should have a big stip match… but it doesn’t look as if they are building up to anything…

    Weird for WWE to run a show in Chiuahua, would make more sense in Cd Juarez, which I think it is twice as big (and next to El Paso) Although I thing WWE already ran El Paso…

    Perros need to do something, they’re pretty much a thing of the past, Secta and Perros were more or less head to head, but Hell Brothers is like 5 times La Secta, and by analogy, Hell Brothers >>>> Perros.

    Perla Negra seems to be headed to AAA, by the look of the pics…

  2. Then, both should jump to AAA to see Apache/Fabi vs Oriental/Cynthia vs Pirata/Perla Negra vs Monsther/Sioux.
