Women’s match was a little bit less than I expected but still fine. Main event was a little bit better than I expected with not the mail-ins you’d expect.
(Strong Style Spirit) Mistico is going to NJPW for their annual 1/4 Tokyo Dome show. He was the big announcement of the press conference – over the TNA guys – so perhaps this will work out well for him.
Other notes from today’s Ovaciones:
– an update about Pierroth, who is stable but still in intensive care. RFC writes in more detail, and it sounds bad.
– the main event of next week’s Puebla show is Sombra/Shocker/Mistico (return there) vs Negro/Niebla/Bucanero, with Mistico being mentioned as 90 percent back at this point.
– Martha Villalobos is running a charity show for the Teleton.
AAA announced they’ll be part of the sports parade this weekend. I always love when photos of this (and CMLL’s float) turn up, but it’s funny to look at the long list of people who will be on AAA’s float and note who’s not there: no Cibernetico, no Mesias, no Chessman, no Charly Manson, no Konnan, no La Parka Jr., no Zorro, no Octagon, not even Elegido; the most important ugys are Silver King, Super Porky and Alan Stone. I don’t expect CMLL to be much different.

I thought CMLL was supposed to run a show here. Guess not any more. The AAA one seems like they figured out who was going to work the show, realized they couldn’t make the matches make any sense, and just decided not to care.
In today’s Ovaciones, Perro Aguayo Jr. announces his promotion will debut on 12/07 in Sala de Arams de Ciudad Deportiva. This makes me inclined to trust dr_landru’s post on el Martiente, where he posts a lineup announced for that date:
PERRO (SUN) 12/07 Sala de Armas de Ciudad Deportiva
1) Juventud Guerrera & Super Crazy vs Damián 666 & Mr. Águila
2) Cibernetico, el Hijo del Perro Aguayo, LA Park vs Dos Caras Jr., Dr. Wagner Jr., Latin Lover
Not only do we have Cibernetico involved – Cibernetico appeared on La Oreja to confirm his involvement in his group – and blame Konnan and Vampiro for ruining AAA to the point where he felt he had to leave – but Dos is interesting too. There’s no CMLL involvement here, but Wagner and Park are here because they’re independent. Is Dos an independent guy? You think that would’ve come out with the never ending contract stuff, but it sure would explain why he’s on the main event no-program treadmill. No other CMLL wrestlers are involved; I don’t know if that confirms anything about a bad breakup, because that was the idea all along.
With that main event, this show is selling out. This is a building where AAA tapes TV, so it should be a pretty decent crowd.
Future shows announced (from the same post)
12/17: Rodeo Santa Fe
That’s a pretty ambitious schedule, running four straight shows right away. There’s no telling who will work those shows.
And past that? The other story from La Oreja was Santo and Perro Jr. challenging each other. The end result was a teased Perro Jr. vs El Hijo del Santo mask vs hair match as the main event of the Santo Sr. memorial show next Feb 5. This isn’t the first time this week they’ve done that tease; it’s the cover of Luchas 2000 #446. I think the match is realistic possibility, but we’ll know a lot more about it’s chances after Perro’s promotion starts and we see how well it does..
