CMLL CAN52 #129

taped 05/02, 05/04, aired 05/10

Picking these back up on DVDs. Not going to do all of them, I think, but they were on top of the pile on the day I had time free.

I have nothing to write here, except the second match was the fun you get with Flash and Fantasma and rudos putting out some effort. So, lists that are going to get me into trouble

Mistico

Sombra
Volador Jr.
Hijo de Fantamsa
Flash
Valiente
Stuka Jr.
Mascara Purpura
Sagrado
Astro Boy*
Angel Azteca Jr.*
Metalik
Tony Rivera
Hijo del Faraon*
Neutron
La Mascara
Metalico
Axxel
Mictlan
Fabian el Gitano
Leono

* – not having seen them near enough

Good to know La Mascara is 13th.

Metalik is downgraded until I know he won’t get hurt on every other dive. So is Valiente.

Sagrado would be many spots higher as a non-clone.

I’m surely forgetting people. Tigre Blanco has been off my TV for too long to rate (same problem with the novatos.) Other tecnicos I thought of and didn’t include because it didn’t fit the list: Panther, Dos, Wagner, Garza, Park, Dragon (sub-La Mascara?)

The contract signing took place halfway during the show. The guys from the semimain accompanied their men to the contract signing. Electroshock saw Super Fly, killed him once again, and Konnan signed the contract in Super Fly’s blood because it was cool that one time he saw it on RAW. Neat how AAA is trying to differentiate themselves from WWE by being a derivative as possible.

AAA’s recap suggests there wasn’t actually a finish in the main event, just the teammates not getting along and working in different alignments (the Cibernetico/Mesias partnership we’re supposed to be excited by). Zorro is credited with the win.

Super Fly couldn’t go in the semimain, and no one else could possibly work, so it was a 2 on 3 match. Which Parka won anyway. Electroshock, the man being built as a killer, lost to a Parka armbar. Tecnicos celebrates, then got killed by the debuting Rellik. Gato Eveready, Alerbije and Elegido ran in to get be cannon fodder. After, Roldan promised his own surprise for the Pena show. It’s not clear if this is meant to be Latin, given they already announced that on the website.

Pirata Morgan pulled off Elegido’s mask again, but this time Elegido…had taped up his face? They have a picture of this, and it still seems quite dumb to me. Anyway, Elegido fouled Pirata and pinned him.

Brazo beat Pimpi in the tercera, then challenged Porky to a hair/retirement match.

Billy beat Tiger in the opener.

10/16: Puebla, GDL

CMLL (MON) 10/13 Arena Puebla [KrisZ]

1) Fire, Pequeño Damian 666, Pequeño Halloween b Nino de Acero, Pequeno Ninja, Último Dragoncito
2) Averno, Mephisto, Terrible b Fabián el Gitano, La Máscara, Volador Jr.
3) Atlantis, Negro Casas, Último Guerrero b Dos Caras Jr., Héctor Garza, Marco Corelone [CMLL TRIOS]

They’re teasing a Fire/Dragoncito mask match here. Just like MVS and CTres, I’m sure TVC Deportes wants to have their own four week feuds.

CMLL (TUE) 10/14 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [cmll, MT]
1) Virgo b Azazel
2) Impostor b Fraile de la Muerte
3) Rafaga b Carlo Roggi
4) Rey Trueno b Palacio Negro
5) Damián 666 b Rayman
6) Metal Blanco, Metalik, Sagrado b Mr. Águila, Mr. Trueno, Toscano
7) Dos Caras Jr. & Marco Corelone b Atlantis & Cien Caras Jr.

Metalik back in action here (and winning in straight falls), so I guess he’s okay. Tecnicos won the main event clean. Damian did foul Rayman and got away with it, so it’s not like there was all clean finishes or anything crazy.

AAA makes it sound like Latin Lover is back and not just making a one week appearance. AAA is slowly putting up info about last night’s taping, and I’ll post it here after it all goes up.

Blue Panther is pleased with the creation of Ola Lagunera, but has no plan on going back to the rudo side. Misterioso II was surprised to be to considered among possible Ola Lagunera members, but would join if Ultimo or Panther asked.

Rey Misterio was added to the Tijuana Walk of Fame.

Los Campeones de la Lucha Libre: another interview with the voice of Dragon Rojo Jr., interview with the voice and director, and SuperLuchas giving away the tickets.

SoloLuchas has interviews with IWRG’s Miss Gaviota (claims Pimpinela is his cousin) and Aerostar (defensive about his innovation, Pena sketched out his look but didn’t come up with the name before he died), and an injury update on Amapola (hurrying to come back in 3 to 4 weeks.)

Spanish language review of “LUCHA LIBRE: Life Behind The Mask.

The Gladiatores has video interviews with Hijo de Solitario, Xochitl Hamada and Esther & Rossy Moreno.

Kcidis has a nice color restoration of a black and white photo of Astro de Oro.
