09/29: Guadalajara, Monterrey, Coliseo

It sounds like wrestlers going on strike to protest TV Azteca airing WWE SmackDown on Friday may be more than idle chatter and have some substance to it. Something to watch this week, with the premire this Friday.

CMLL (TUE) 09/23 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [cmll]
1) Milenio b Relampago Azul
2) Virgo b Ebola
3) Samurai b Rafaga
4) Exterminador b Magnum
5) Flash b Infierno
6) Damián 666 & Mr. Águila b Leon Blanco & Stuka Jr.
7) Atlantis & Último Guerrero b Alex Koslov & Héctor Garza

CMLL (SUN) 09/28 Arena Coliseo [CMLL, Ovaciones]
1) Artillero & Súper Comando b Rayo Tapatío I & Rayo Tapatío II
2) Goddess, Princesa Blanca, Sahori b La Nazi, Medussa, Mima Shimoda
3) Máscara Púrpura, Tony Rivera, Valiente b Loco Max, Sangre Azteca, Satánico
4) Felino, Heavy Metal, Negro Casas b Damián 666, Mephisto, Mr. Águila
5) Dos Caras Jr., Héctor Garza, Marco Corelone DQ Atlantis, Lizmark Jr., Rey Bucanero

Lizmark fouled Dos yet again in the main event.

In the tercera, Sangre Azteca played the part of Halcon Negro this week and surely regretted it. That picture over there is a still of a Valiente dive gone horribly wrong, and both he and Sangre were strechered out. The CMLL.com report says it was only a scare, but that’s pretty scary. This also overshadowed the angle they were running – Tony Rivera vs Loco Max is indeed on for a hair match next week.

This morning, there was a note confirming this on CMLL.com, noting Tony’s past long winning streak in these matches and Loco Max’s bad performance. It’s disappeared since about 11AM CST.

Ovaciones writes about the Halcon Negro situation. They’re under the belief Halcon Negro is actually supposed to show up each and every week and keeps no-showing.

CMLL (SUN) 09/28 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [MT]
4) Terrible & Texano Jr. b Máscara Año 2000 & Universo 2000 [OCCIDENTE TAG]
5) Gallo & Hijo del Fantasma b Malefico & Máscara Mágica [hair]
6) Blue Panther DQ Villano V

Panther had Villano in the armbar and V5 must’ve not been countering it this time because Terrible & Texano had to run in for the DQ. Gallo & Hijo de Fantasma did not lose their masks. Phew. It’s not like I was expecting the Dinamitias to win the tag team championships of the West (because, why?), but it’s still is surprising to see them lose any time they don’t have to at this point.

Atlantis has a new offical site at Atlantis.

(Mr. Reyes) Looks like the Oficials won the IWRG Trios title last night.

Al Filo del Ring has a Shocker interview from Guerreros del Ring (the magazine) – not a lot new: considers himself on leave with CMLL and desperately wants to go back, doesn’t like the AAA using the Guapo name but has no issues with the guys themselves – and one from Scorpio at his benefit show, where he hoped to return to the ring by Novemeber.

Aguila Solitaria would like to return to Arena Mexico for a few retirement matches.

Notimex has a story about Bolivia’s Cholitas.

CMLL (MON) 09/29 Arena Puebla
1) Astruriano, Centella de Oro, Tiger Rojo vs Fuerza Chicana, Mr. Rafaga, Toro Bill
2) Black Tiger, Blue Center, Legionario vs Fire, Pequeño Violencia, Pierrothito
3) Alex Koslov, Máximo, Mictlán vs Euforia, Nosferatu, Satánico
4) Dos Caras Jr., Héctor Garza, Marco Corelone vs Atlantis, Negro Casas, Último Guerrero
5) Blue Panther vs Villano V

Pierrothito brings the lightweight title back to Puebla! Also another Panther/V5 rematch and the trios champs teaming up in a non title match (though Ovaciones thinks we should expect a title match next week.)

Second on the card on Wednesday in
Nuevo Laredo this week: Spiderman vs Batman.

  1. The strike gimmick is a great way to get publicity. I really think Azteca should’ve gone with a Saturday slot, because WWE is really for young kids.

  2. didnt know where to post this, so i figured i’d put it in the top post.

    Alex Koslov has been announced as one of the participants in this years Super 8 Tournament put on by ECWA. it takes place on 10/25/08 in Delaware. it used to be a very prestigious tournament showcasing the top indy wrestlers in the US. but last year’s was horrible, and this year’s doesnt look too good either. it seems that instead of bringing the best, now they brng 2 known wrestlers and 6 guys trying to make a name for themselves. Alex and Shannon Moore are the known guys, and i’d say those 2 will probaly be in the final too.

  3. A heads up (mostly to Henrik) – that 9/29 Puebla show aired on TVC and just got uploaded. For whatever reason the tecnicos in the segunda were Shockercito, Pequeno Olimpico and Ultimo Dragoncito. Plus La Mascara subbed for Alex Koslov. All five matches aired so we get to see locals! I will upload if you (or Cubs but definitely not Peter Porker) so request.

  4. So I watched the Puebla on TVC show. Couple of notes:

    – Building was EMPTY. Tons of empty seats on he floor and the bleachers were practically deserted. This is *10 days* after the mask match. Your thoughts, Keith?

    – TVC’s production was great. Much better than the Guadalajara show. Replays during the match were done fast so no action was missed unlike with the GDL TV and there were interviews with even the undercard guys.

    – Matches look to be airing in full unless they cut out some early matwork which might have happened only in the first two matches.

    – Matches in general were C3 level in terms of wrestling quality. Better than the weekend shows although that may just be because they are in full here. You can pretty much guess where FSE/Canal52 would join the matches in progress if they were airing over there and you really miss a lot when you join a match right at the comeback spot or start the match near the end of the first fall.

    Mini’s had the best match followed by the local, then the main, the tercera (dive sequence!) and semi-main which was awful.
