Konnan on F4D detailed notes

As long promised. If I wait any longer, it’ll be completely irrelevant.

A few points to make before I start, really no different than for any other interview

This is an interview from two weeks ago. Things change. Obviously, if Cibernetico’s departure is as sincere as those involved would like us to believe, the circumstances of AAA are much different when when this was done. As Konnan mentions, this was done before the Irapuato taping.

This is a off the top of the head discussion. In any opinion based Q&A, there are going to be answers that you give one day that may conflict with the answers you give the next day – maybe you forget something, maybe you confuse something, maybe you say it in way that sounds one way in your head because you know the contest, only the listener doesn’t. This has happened to me almost every time I’ve been the interviewee, so I ready to allow leeway.

This isn’t the Pile On Konnan thread. I’m going to force myself to refrain from commenting on Konnan’s points so they don’t get diluted. If you want to argue his points, go ahead. If you want to complain about Konnan because you hate Konnan, save it for another post. If you want to complain about how much the TV show sucks, wait for a thread about the TV show.

One last plea: sign up for the Wrestling Observer & Figure Four package. If you’re going to pay for anything wrestling related on the internet, it should be on that. And I don’t even really care about MMA. (Konnan does enough for the both of us.)

I’m also going to skip over Steve Sims/UWA discussion. It’s worth listening to and would love to hear the rebuttal, but I rather concentrate on Konnan thoughts on the current scene

11/21: Sinaloa, Mexico

CMLL (WED) 11/19 Cancha German Evers, Mazatlan, Sinaloa [Noroeste]
3) Metal Blanco & Palacio Negro b Mr. Trueno & Rey Trueno
4) Casanova & Máximo b Malefico & Misterioso II
5) Mascara Dorada & Místico b Atlantis & Último Guerrero

Mascara Dorada got his pin on Atlantis with a “defective hurracarana.” I’ve seen a few of those. Tercera is setting up a Pacific Coast Tag title match.

CMLL (FRI) 11/21 Arena Mexico
1) Angel Azteca & Angel de Oro vs Artillero & Súper Comando
2) Flash, Hijo del Faraon, Stuka Jr. vs Arkangel de la Muerte, Loco Max, Skandalo
3) Euforia, Nosferatu, Sangre Azteca vs Hijo del Fantasma, La Sombra, Máximo
4) Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas, Toscano vs Héctor Garza, Marco Corelone, Mascara Dorada
5) Blue Panther, Dos Caras Jr., Místico vs Averno, Mephisto, Terrible


Most interesting thing is ESTO dubbing Super Comando and Artillero “Peloton del Terror”. All the articles find a nice way to say “Mistico faces Averno, yet again.” Dorada as the only flier in the semimain might mean something. Toscano’s still not teaming with the Guerreros, but at least he found friends of theirs.

AAA hypes the Leon team at the AAA taping there and speculates about a new third member of the Mexican Powers

AAA’s lineup for the 11/30 show at Arena Azteca Budokan lists “Local” instead of Super Crazy in the main event. That would seem to suggest he hasn’t signed yet.

The Gladiatores has video interviews with Lizmark Sr. and Solar (though it’s not working at the moment) at Solar’s store opening, Mucha Crema (and son) at the NWA Mexico show, Martha Villalobos about the show she’s doing for the Teleton and has photos from the Freestyle Fitness show.

Press for the Guadalajara Lucha Libre festival. Tinieblas is now claiming to be the oldest active wrestler in the world at 69. Tickets will cost 120 to 700 pesos ($8.59 to $50.11 US Dollars.)
