06/11: Coliseo, VIP, Monterrey, AOL

CMLL (SUN) 06/10 Arena Coliseo [ovaciones, superlucha]
1) Rayo Tapatío I & Rayo Tapatío II b Vaquero & Zayco
2) Arkangel de la Muerte, Loco Max, Nitro b Fabián el Gitano, Metálico, Tony Rivera
3) Dark Angel, Diana La Cazdora, Luna Magica DQ Amapola, Poly Star, Princesa Sujei
4) Blue Panther, Dos Caras Jr., Marco Corelone DQ Averno, Mephisto, Sangre Azteca
5) Místico, Negro Casas, Rey Bucanero b Damián 666, Halloween, Misterioso II

Misterioso II logically replaced Mr. Aguila – I don’t know why CMLL thought Aguila could work both this and Cinco Magnificos show – and Sangre fouled Blue Panther in the semimain. That’d be a fun feud, I wonder if Panther is still a middleweight.

VIP (SAT) 06/09 Roots Magic Club [Alvin @ el Martinete]
1) Cerebro Negro & Dr. Cerebro b Skayde & Turbo
2) Nino X, Super Muenco Jr., Super Nino b Black Heart, La Furia, La Mosca
3) Negro Navarro b Mano Negra and Ojo de Tigre I and Black Terry and El Dandy
4) Axxel, Leon Guerrero, VIP Negro b Coco Rojo, El Hijo de Cien Caras, Máscara Año 2000 Jr.
5) Brazo de Platino, Negro Casas, Super Brazo b Il Barone, LA Park, Olímpico

Negro Navarro wins the 1st stage of the maestro tournament VIP is running. Black Terry was the runner up, which earns him another shot in the five man battle on the next show.

AAA (SUN) 06/10 Arena Coliseo Monterrey [RFC]
1) Euforia (Monterrey) & Mercurio b Panterita del Ring II & Rey Imagen
2) Mascarita Sagrada, Miss Janeth, Picudo b La Hechicera, Mini Histeria, Mosco de la Merced II
3) Angel & Billy Boy b Alan & Decnnis
4) The Mummy b Orus, Karis, Ramses
5) Charly Manson, El Elegido, Octagón b Antifaz del Norte, Aventurero, Hator

Rudo team fell apart in the main event.

indy (THU) 06/14 Arena Olimpico Laguna de Gomez Palacio [Siglo de Torreon]
1) Cadete de la Atlantida & Scriba Jr. vs Latino Jr. & Zaracatan Jr.
2) Centella Azul Jr. & Tigre Chong vs Moro Jr. & Pequeno Star
3) Angel del Oro & Sexy Libra vs Dulce Paola & Guerrero Inca
4) Sexy Piscis & Trueno vs Espanto V & Piloto Negro

That’s CMLL’s Trueno working the weekly AOL show.

(Box Y Lucha Foro) Danger says it was not him who video taped unmasked luchadores backstage with a cell phone. What he really needs right now is someone else to say it wasn’t him.

* LUCHAS 2000 #372 has Espectro Jr. deciding if he’ll put up his mask and Mistico winning the LdP.
* Super Luchas #216 has Mistico winning the LdP. Inside, in the last notes column, the magazine notes that AAA isn’t (and shouldn’t) be happy about lineups being leaked. This includes the TripleMania one, which we’re still not sure of – everyone’s only using the original thread as source. I’m thinking the lineup is what AAA has down on paper, but they might not have all the foreign names confirmed at this point.

El Zocalo de Monclova has an interview with (masked) Mascara Ano 2000 and Universo 2000. Things have never been as good as the first couple years of the 90s when Cien had his mask match with Rayo and Mascara beat Anibal for his mask; it’s never like the old days. If this blog goes 50 years (and it won’t), I vow to just write cranky posts about The Old Times Were Better. Universo says he’s talking to two guys about possibly carrying on his name (it has to be two with this crew) – his daughters have no interest in lucha libre and he wouldn’t let them get in the business anyway.

There was also a press conference in Monclova before the first CMLL show there in some time, but the paper doesn’t appear to have results.

El Sol de Tlaxcala has an interview with indy wrestler Astro Aereo. He says he’s been wrestling for 10 years, trained by Tarahumara and is hoping to break into Arena Puebla.

  1. Now if only they could keep Misterioso in the main event, that would rule. He already has the promos and workrate down, so why won’t they elevate him?

    I guess Hator, Aventurero, and Antifaz might do their own angle, maybe even build up to a three-way stip match for Coliseo.

    Ok, so now the mystery of who leaked the AAA card seems very interesting. Can’t blame Konnan since he seems to have no ties to the message board community in Mexico. If they get Lover off the Mania show, I’ll probably go.

    As for the foreigners, I read that Sid Vicious is looking for work. Can you imagine if Sid goes to Mexico to work as a giant heel to show TNA and WWE that he’s back? I mean, that’s why Sean Waltman is down there-to get on tv and get back in WWE.

  2. The new SuperLuchas has a pretty great article about CMLL having no imagination when creating the new gimmicks for Brillante and Tigre Metalico, plus it discusses why they are getting shots ahead of guys like Stuka Jr. and Misterioso II. I’d say CMLL is discriminating against Chui’s budies but Brillante Jr. is getting the push so…

    You realize ever since Mistico came along, CMLL loves gimmicks where the name starts with M and ends with O. Metalico, Metro, Maximo, Misterioso.

    Weird thought re: Arena Mexico this Friday – why are Damian/Halloween teaming with a Villano? Weren’t those teams trying to kill each other a few months back in AULL and Arena Mexico(11/20/06)?

  3. Oh yeah, I remember what I wanted to post this morning but had no time for…

    Ovaciones had the best line of the day:

    “Mister Águila no asistió a Perú 77 a su compromiso y era de esperarse, ya que ayer tenía un compromiso más importante, la final del reality show “Los 5 Magníficos”…”

    Good to know.

  4. Super Luchas, since being banned from ringside at Arena Mexico, has had quite a bit to say about CMLL. Most seems to be on the money. Now that they’re banned, they can report Lucha in an objective fashion, instead of what we’ve been reading for years.
