01/26: Mexico lineup change, Guadalajara, AULL, SLP


The top two matches for tonight’s Arena Mexico show have changed.

Originally, it was
4) Dos Caras Jr., Lizmark Jr., Universo 2000 vs LA Park, Marco Corelone, Último Guerrero
5) Místico, Rey Bucanero, Shocker vs el Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Halloween, Terrible

CMLL.com now lists
4) Lizmark Jr., Shocker, Universo 2000 vs LA Park, Marco Corelone, Último Guerrero
5) Místico, Rey Bucanero, Dr. Wagner Jr. vs el Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Halloween, Terrible

Esto echos those changes in it’s preview, but also has late breaking info that Universo 2000 will miss the show due to a shoulder injury, and his replacement is TBA. Esto also says the Lizmark Jr. rudo turn is off, though Notimex thinks it may go down.

off topic: I wonder if they were thinking of doing a father/son mask match with the Lizmarks, and that’s why he was turning rudo? I’m a little too interested in figuring out how Lizmark’s losing his mask, I think.

ESTO also has an interview with Atlantis. He’s hopeful he might get that mask match with Dr. Wagner in 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007!

4) Felino, Maximo, Rayo de Plata Jr. vs Sangre Guerrera, Dr. X, Sabu Jr.
5) Mistico, Blue Panther, La Mascara vs Averno, Mephisto, Ephesto

This previews is so weird. They hype up the show by saying “Felino’s coming! Felino’s awesome, ain’t he? And Magadan will be there, and he sure says some controversial things. Also, Mistico.” This is the Arena Mexico San Luis Potosi crew (/Rayo de Plata’s promotion), and so they’re taking this Sunday off from their weekly show, and handing out awards instead. They’ve already announced the winners

Wrestler: Rayo de Plata Jr.
New Wrestler: Salome
Rudo: Sabu Jr.
New Rudo: Black Fantasy
Special Mention: Sombra del Misterio, Lover Boy, Fuerza Maligna, Leopardo

El Siglo de Torreon has an extensive breakdown of the upcoming wrestlers license season. Every Thursday till the end of February, between 6 and 8, wrestlers can go to Auditorio Municipal de Torreon, get their required physical and pay 100 pesos ($9US) to pick up their license for 2007. If they wait to March, it’s 120 pesos for the license and 50 pesos for the physical. Currently, there are 140 active wrestlers in the local area.

Also in March, they’ll test any trainees who want to get licensed – they’ll have to work before three well known (but yet to be decided) local people from the scene, who will decide if they’re qualified to be in the wrestling ring. I’ve read about this in the Box Y Lucha regulations, but I wasn’t certain this was something they still did. It’s kinda awesome. Things are significantly less stringent in the US.

  1. Currently, there are 140 active wrestlers in the local area.

    Plus a number of unregistered guys, guys who have their licence from Mexico City (most of the Stars) and underage rookies who can’t get a licence… maybe 200-220 guys, then, I’m not even sure if Torreon means Torreon or La Laguna… still, with a 200 figure, considering that La Laguna is 1 per cent of the Country’s population (there are probably more Mexicans in Chicago than down here), we could say that there are 20,000 luchadors in the country?
