RFC says, according to his source, Damian 666 and Mr. Aguila met with CMLL officials yesterday and decided to leave the promotion. This conflicts with what Damian said earlier this week.
IWRG (FRI) 10/24 Arena Naucalpan [the Gladiatores]
1) Halcon 2000 & Super Hallcon Jr. b Avisman & Soldado Diablo
2) Miss Gaviota & Zatura DQ Judas el Traidor & Nemesis IWRG
3) Eragon, Gemelo Fantastico I, Gemelo Fantastico II b Black Terry, Cerebro Negro, Ghost Rider
4) Freelance, Jack, Pendulo b Oficial 911, Oficial AK-47, Oficial Fierro [lumberjack strap]
5) Máscara Año 2000 & Mascara Ano 2000 Jr. b Arlequin & Hijo de Pierroth IWRG and Solar I & Super Astro and Latino & Multifacético
So the storyline here is Dr. Cerebro was so hurt by the piledriver one of the Gemelos gave him last week, he was unable to compete (though he did run in on that tercera) and they pushed the big mach back a week. Main event had MA2K Sr. steal Arlequin’s mask for the pinfall win. Nemesis took Zatura’s mask in the second match.
LA Park replaces Perro Jr. in the SLP show next week.
– Konnan takes over AAA on 11/15.
– Coincidentally, AAA’s press release on Cibernetico’s departure says it doesn’t take affect until after the 11/15 taping.
– Sergio Mayer slipped on a drink and sprained his knee after interfering in the cage match. Even though you’d figure it was going this way, both Mayer and Latin Lover seem to think a match between them would be dumb, because Mayer isn’t a wrestler.
SoloLuchas has a number of interviews I’ve neglected to link to
– IWRG’s Zatura talks about all he was before being IWRG’s Zatura. His father was a wrestler (Misterio Blanco) and he was drafted into wrestling a minis match at age 12. Zatura started as Gallito Sureno, had a brief stint with CMLL as Piloto Fantasma (can’t find a record – dark match, I presume), stopped wrestling for 3 years and was working as gym instructor when Chico Che talked him into wrestling again.
– Angel O Demonio talks about hitting 25 years of wrestling. He notes he never really got hurt much doing normal lucha libre, but after wrestling hardcore matches for the last five years, he’s had injuries to an Achilles, a shoulder, his forehead, and lots of scaring. Funny how that works.
– Super Parka talks about his upcoming NWA Mexico match. The best wrestler in the family might not be him, might not be Volador Jr. – Super Parka’s daughter is amateur wrestler, headed to St. Luis next week for a tournament.
– Solar I is opening a story on 11/15. There’s a guy Konnan needs to sign.
– Karloff Lagarde has nothing new/interesting to say.
– bio of Oro
Kcidis has a cartoon of Astro de Oro
Blue Demon is giving up presidency of NWA Mexico. A new president is supposed to be announced sometime today.
