Mascara Dorada coming to CMLL

There was a discussion about this in the CMLL TV talk, when “Mascara Dorada” was promoted for next week, which seemed like a misspeak. As it turns out, CMLL’s Blog promotes the impending debut of Mascara Dorada and claims he could be as spectactular as the mini Mascarita Dorada. That’s aiming high.

10/27: Dos Caras Jr., GDL


Dos Caras Jr. tells MT that he will be finishing up with CMLL in Decemeber and starting with WWE in January. (Dos notes this is consistent with his last promise of sticking it out thru ’08.) Dos says there are still details to be resolved, but this time it’s not “agree on money” and is more like “take a few medical tests to be cleared by state commissions.” Since he’s feuding with Wagner in GDL anyway (see below), Dos would like to unify the CMLL and UWA Heavyweight Titles before he goes. Dos does not expect big things to be handed to him upon starting with WWE but hopes to earn it from their fans.

CMLL (SUN) 10/26 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [MT]
1) Plata & Quazar b Azazel & Relampago Azul
2) Samurai & Thunder Boy b Milenio & Neon
3) el Gallo, Hijo del Fantasma, Metal Blanco b Averno, Infierno, Mephisto
4) Olímpico & Último Guerrero b La Sombra & Metalik [torneo Corona, final]
5) Atlantis b Dos Caras Jr., Dr. Wagner Jr.

MT had the full results for once, which is nice. Sounds like the main event was worked as a three way (as opposed to three separate singles matches) and Dos had it won, but Atlantis cheated to take the pinfall. After the match, Wagner and Dos continued to have issues and will meet in a singles match next week.

For his part, RFC says Sicodelico Jr. did another tryout match on 10/20 and it sounds like he’s headed to developmental.

Arena Coliseo Monterrey is back to running AAA shows, starting 11/02. They left in May, and they left in February. And a few times before then.

detailed thoughts about the ROH creative change

haha, NO. This post is officially a mousetrap, just to sidetrack the comments off of posts I may care about. If you otherwise don’t know but slightly care, ROH is changing bookers and Adam Pearce is apparently one of those in charge. Go listen to the Wrestling Observer shows for more. Truthfully, the fact that my TiVo marked this morning CMLL FSE show as “copy-protected; may not download to computer” is much more of a concern than this.

There are three quick lucha points worth making, which is why I bring it up at all:

– Still don’t expect Mexico based luchadors in ROH and similar indies. Those treat no-shows as huge no-no, Mexican luchadors do not appear to fret over missing US dates. (Hello Oriental.) Doesn’t really matter who’s running ship as long as that stays the same way.

– Blue Demon Jr. is going to stay the NWA champ; it’s said Pearce was one of few who knew the booking change was going down, so it’s fair to assume he knew he wouldn’t be available to be NWA champ, at least for the moment, and Demon makes as much sense as anyone. The whole “arm under the rope” is to set up a future rematch, not a drawn out reversal of the original finish.

– Even ROH doesn’t have confidence in ROH style matches drawing enough to make the company profitable; why does AAA?

This is half troll, because AAA isn’t going to make it/break it based on the ROH-style guys they’re bringing in, and AAA is bringing in the guys to be different than everyone else while ROH’s problems suffer from too much similarity, but I still think it’s a funny line and I don’t regret it all.
