06/03: Coliseo, Accion, FSE

CMLL (SUN) 06/03 Arena Coliseo [Dr. Frink @ box y lucha]
1) Rayo Tapatio I & Rayo Tapatio II b Artillero & Zayco
2) Brillante, Trueno, Valiente b Apocalipsis, Ramstein, Super Comando
3) Dark Angel, Diana La Cazadora, Lady Apache b Amapola, Medusa, Princesa Sujei
4) Mascara Purpura, Maximo, Volador Jr. b Satanico, Texano Jr., Virus
5) Blue Panther, Marco Corelone, Negro Casas b Atlantis, Olimpico, Tarzan Boy

The semifinal set up a Maximo/Satanico hair match of all things. I’m not so down with that. Tarzan Boy did indeed work as Toscano, I thought maybe you guys were making a joke till I saw the thread on it at Box Y Lucha.

Dark Angel was a surprise replacement (for Tiana) on the SHIMMER shows this weekend as part of their title tournament. Sadly, she still can’t win a title belt, losing in the semifinals with the best match of the taping. (I am so annoyed with myself for neglecting to go.) Her matches will appear on Volume 11 and Volume 12 of their DVDs, and it goes without saying Super Luchas had a photographer there.

TripleMania is expected to be July 15 at Toreo de Cuatro Caminos.

(North Jersey Herald) Mil Mascaras and Dos Caras drew 150 to a show in New Jersey.


CMLL: Leyenda de Plata semifinal. This looked just okay in highlights. Oh no, not a gutbuster on the floor. Aguila looked slow and Sagrado seemed afraid to screw something up. The finish – a suplex in the ring supposed to be reversed to a small package (I guess – it wasn’t really close) looked very not so good.

AAA: Lider/Crazy/Tiger vs Ozz/Cuervo/Scoria. They’re very much into showing the slow careful setting up of spots – there’s so much positioning for the pinfall that they speed up the footage. I think Extreme Tiger probably really really wanted to get that legdrop in.

At home with Misterioso. They’re apparently doing two weeks of this, and I have no idea why.

Hirooki has his belt this week, which is good because I was worried that title tournament was some sort of mass hallucination.

6 thoughts to “06/03: Coliseo, Accion, FSE”

  1. Man that CMLL main event looked horrible. Sagrado seems to be taking the Olympico guide to bodybuilding.

  2. I think they’re doing two weeks of “At Home” for everyone these days. Negro was two weeks and so was Black Warrior. I think these segments are pointless, and waste time that could be spent focusing on feuds that don’t play out on Fox Spots and MX52. Wouldn’t a vignette of Lizmark Jr. backstage talking about Mistico be better than seeing Negro Casas dancing with his wife, or Black Warrior doing crunches in a gym with equipment that looks thirty years outdated?

  3. Toreo has been for sale forever. And it’s been said before that “this could be AAA’s last show” in the venue. Eventually, they’ll have to find a way into the Palacio, even though AAA rarely runs real venues. Did anyone see this week’s tv from Oaxaca? Just a makeshift venue in a parking lot with parade bleachers set up.

    I’m more worried about what Konnan has in mind for the fleshy felines who make up the women’s roster in AAA. I really hope he doesn’t crack down on anyone over weight issues. Not all women in wrestling should look like they live on a diet of GH and rice cakes, like those in TNA and WWE.

  4. Sorry to be so annoying with all these posts. XHRAE-28 in Mexico City is back on the air as “Cadenatres”, and they’re marketing themselves as Mexico’s third network(as is obvious from the name). They already have a national presense as many cable companies are airing them.

    I think XHRAE had AULL for a little while, until it was exclusive on TVC.

    Expect lots of lucha people to try and get their promotions on there.

  5. That segunda looks great from the photos. I’m thinking whichever shows gets that match will be the winner this weekend. I’m assuming it’ll air on Gala Mexico even though Henrik disagrees.;)
