01/25: UWE, notes, lineups

UWE (TUE) 01/20 Arena Queretaro [SuperLuchas #299]
1) El Blanco & Galaxy b Mr. Rebelde & Rey Azteca
2) Lola Gonzalez & Rossy Moreno b Martha Villalobos & Pantera Surena
3) Danny Boy, Falcon, Mano Negra b Aguila Venezola, Roberto Paz, Rocky Santana
4) Solar I, Super Astro, Ultraman DRAW Black Terry, Scorpio Jr., Shu el Guerrero
5) Canek & Villano IV DQ Canek & Mil Mascaras

Dos fouled Canek for the finish. The legends have to be protected on the legends show, I guess. All three UWE shows get major coverage in SuperLuchas.

Today, SuperLuchas is reporting the next big show for this group will be an eight man mask/hair cage match on 02/14 in Arena Lopez Mateos. Participants are Mil Mascaras, Dos Caras, Canek, Villano V, Scorpio Jr., Villano III, Shu el Guerrero and Mano Negra.

Elsewhere in SuperLuchas #299, the cover story is an interview with Dr. Wagner Jr. Wagner explains the announced AAA booking isn’t the only one – he wants to work with all groups, so he’s going to start working AAA spot shows. Wagner specifically says no TV tapings, at least for the time being.

Freelance is also in the magazing, saying the Box Y Lucha article which had him challenging Mascarita Dorada and Bam Bam was mostly invented by the Box Y Lucha article.

Vanguardia talks to Hijo del Faraon, who sees Dr. Wagner Jr. was what he’d like to be, but without all the conflicts with promoters.

In an interview with Al Filo del Ring, El Hijo del Solitario makes it clear he’d love to face Santo in a mask/mask match if Perro Jr. doesn’t want to step up. Solitario makes it clear not just by saying it, but by proclaming El Santo was overrated and El Hijo del Solitario is in fact the true greatest wrestler of all time. Learn something new every day.

El Siglo de Torreon writes the Is WWE’s TV going to kill lucha libre?. Stuka and Euforia say no.

Ovaciones article is just confirming CMLL will be apart of the Lucha Libre Expo this May. The Expo had previous announced as much.

DTU has video of Hermanos Traumas saying they’ll be on their next show (in Queretaro, sometime in February.)

Zorro and Alex Koslov wrestled for a show called 12 corazones.

SuperLuchas looks back at Perro Aguayo vs Nikozuna.

Over on LuchaWorld, Robert watches LLAzteca #58 and IWRG 09/27/07. There’s also KrisZ’s news update.

Main event is confusing – there must’ve been an angle this week that I don’t know about yet. It’s listed as an Atomicos, but only three guys on one side are listed. I assume the Corp is Veneno and Other People. The old Corporacion was Scorpio Jr., the Cerebros, Pantera, Black Tiger and Veneno. Probably not Black Tiger this time.
