07/07: Mexico, GdR

CMLL (FRI) 07/06 Arena Mexico [ESTO, Galeno Del Mal de box y lucha, Alvin @ el Martinete]
1) Astro Boy & Sombra de Plata b Apocalipsis & Ramstein
2) Nitro, Nosferatu, Virus b Flash, Mictlan, Valiente
3) Katsuhiko Nakajima, Kensuske Sasaki, Ultimo Dragon b Arkangel, Dr. X, Texano Jr.
4) Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto b Alex Koslov, Felino, Stuka Jr.
5) Blue Panther, Heavy Metal, Sagrado b Terrible, Villano III, Villano V
6) Dr. Wagner Jr., Euforia, Ultimo Guerrero b Mistico, Negro Casas, Sombra

Wagner back on the rudo side, though still posing like a tecnico. Mistico almost got La Mistica on him, but UG broke it up, and Wagner landed a Wagner Drive for the clean victory. After the match, Mistico was strecher-ed out. Guerrero welcomed Wagner “to the side you never should’ve left”, and invited him to team up for a tag title match versus Negro & Mistico next week. Wagner agreed to the idea.

Panther’s team won it’s match in two falls. Rudos yanked off his mask in the first, so he was forced to compete in a Sagrado replica for the second, but still managed to catch Terrible in a fujiwara armbar.

Dragon/Sasaki/Nakajima was a unannounced addition to the show. Can’t think of the last time that happened, but that means there surely is a Toryumon Mexico show going on some place, somewhere on Sunday. This was said to be good, though no one had any idea who the non-Dragon Japanese were – that’s the lack of adversiting.

Valiente did replace Super Nova, so trust ESTO over CMLL’s own site. Virus fouled him and pinned him for the win.

No results from the AAA Puebla taping yet, but Sabu made an appearance. Rikishi and his (cousin?) Black Pearl are supposed to be involved at TripleMania. Hopefully just run-ins. It’s not like I can hope for no run ins.

CMLL now has a traveling museum/bus. It’s filled with masks, trophies, newspaper clippings, etc. If this is to be believed, Pierroth was driving the bus on this day.

CMLL hasn’t put up lineups yet.

GdR #85 has
07/01 Coliseo: Bam Bam, Fantasy, Shockercito b Mr. Aguilita, Pequeno Damian, Pequeno Halloween
07/01 Coliseo: Alex Koslov, Heavy Metal, Volador Jr. b Atlantis, Olimpico, Sangre Azteca
Outside the ring: Terrible

  1. I wonder if Super Nova’s performance at the Gran Alternativa was his death sentence for the time being. Valiente obviously got his place since he looked great in the Gran Alternativa and CMLL has never been shy about quickly burying guys who blow their shot when given a chance. Then you add in that he made Mistico look awful and I think Super Nova will be seeing a lot of Polvora and Vaquero in upcoming months…

    Toryumon Mexico = Sunday @ Coliseo.

    HOW WAS THE MINI’S MATCH!??!?!?!?!!??!?!?!?!?!?:D Anything less than AMAZING is unacceptable considering they know they are making TV, they were working the tercera and they are being given a chance to develop a feud.

  2. There wasn’t any press in Japan about the Mexico expedition until Wednesday. Ultimo usually pimps his shows in Mexico for a good month in advance.
