01/29: IWRG, Mexico, heavyweight returns, GDL lineups

IWRG (THU) 01/22 Arena Naucalpan [The Gladiatores]
1) Halcon 2000 b Comando Gama
2) Anticristo Jr. Comando Negro & Avisman b Eragon & Miss Gaviota
3) Demony & Xibalva b Chico Che & Goleador
4) Freelance, Multifacetico, Pendulo DQ Tetsuya, Toxico AAA, Veneno
5) Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro b Trauma I, Trauma II, Zatura [IWRG IC TRIOS]

Champs win again. DQ in semimain for Tetsuya pulling Multifacetico’s mask, and they’re teasing a singles match there. Demony got away with a mask pull in the tercera, taking Goledaor’s before pinning him for the win.

IWRG (SUN) 01/25 Arena Naucalpan [The Gladiatores]
1) Avisman b Galactic
2) Fenix, Jack, Miss Gaviota b Anticristo Jr., King Drako, Nemesis IWRG
3) Chico Che, Gemelo Fantastico I, Gemelo Fantastico II b Black Terry, Cerebro Negro, Dr. Cerebro
4) Zumbido b Fuerza Guerrera
5) Freelance, Pendulo, Scorpio Jr. b Andy Barrow, Tetsuya, Veneno

Night of making title challenges. Gemelos and Chico want an IWRG Trios shot after beating the champs. Zumbido swept Fuerza (first fall was DQ for Fuerza’s excessive violence after winning the fall) so he wants a Welterweight shot. Even though Freelance and Tetsuya weren’t involved in the finish of the main event (Scorpio pinning Veneno), Freelance wants a hair/mask match and Tetsuya wants another shot at the lightweight belt. Tetsuya’s mask does not seem long for this world.

CMLL (TUE) 01/27 Arena Mexico [CMLL]
1) Metálico & Tigre Blanco b Camorra & Inquisidor
2) Pequeño Halloween, Pequeño Warrior, Pierrothito b Niño de Acero, Pequeño Ninja, Tzuki
3) Mascara Dorada, Metro IV, Valiente b Euforia, Nosferatu, Shigeo Okumura
4) Black Warrior, Dragon Rojo Jr., Sangre Azteca b La Máscara, La Sombra, Sagrado
5) Dos Caras Jr., Héctor Garza, Místico b Ephesto, Terrible, Texano Jr.

Rudos won the semimain again, so they’ve got a title match next week.

Ovaciones says Rayo de Jalisco, Universo 2000 and Mascara Ano 2000 are headed back in next month. :(

(Strong Style Spirit) Mephisto vs Mistico on NJPW’s 02/15 show will now be for Mistico’s CMLL Welterweight championship. Mephisto is probably still not a welterweight.

Diario Impacto has an interview with La Parka Jr. about his career, but they don’t actually have a permalink to the article. You can go to the Deportes section and look on the right side as you scroll down.

The Gladiatores also has interviews with Crazy Star and video interviews with the Traumas and last Oficials

El Manana profiles local wrestler Estrellas Universal

Todo Por el Todo has an invitation to the El Santo memorial fucntions in on 02/05.

DTU has Lord Byron and Kaientai talking about the next show.

LuchaWorld has Robert on 08/30/07 IWRG and bad CMLL MVS shows from 09/08 and 09/09/07.

CMLL (SUN) 02/01 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Drago & Relampago Azul vs Nube Roja & Thunder Boy
2) Casanova, Leon Blanco, Magnum vs Malefico, Máscara Púrpura, Mr. Trueno
3) Dark Angel, Goddess, Lady Apache vs Hiroka, Medussa, Mima Shimoda
4) La Sombra & Shocker vs Terrible & Texano Jr.
5) Volador Jr. vs Rey Bucanero [CMLL LH]

Title match is on. And Mima’s back in the country.

CMLL (TUE) 02/03 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Quazar vs Angel de Mal
2) Virgo vs Valentin Mayo
3) Metal Blanco vs Infierno
4) Dark Angel & Goddess vs Hiroka & Mima Shimoda
5) La Nazi & Lady Apache vs Medussa & Sahori [ri]
6) Averno, Mephisto, Terrible vs Máximo, Mictlán, Shocker

Poor Lady Apache. You know, I don’t know which women is going to lose the cage match, but from watching those promos on Ras de Lona, La Nazi didn’t look too confident.

Updates the next few days may be irregular. I’m going to see if I can get some recaps set up to fill in.

  1. I think Ringo is the official editor of all your work, Cubs.:P

    I take issue with this update though. You always used to make a big deal about when Lizmark Jr. or Toscano would actually show up for shows b/c of their awful track records. Now Tzuki is in the same position and he gets no sarcastic comment about actually showing up? Poor lil’ guy.:(

    “2) Pequeño Halloween, Pequeño Warrior, Pierrothito b Niño de Acero, Pequeño Ninja, Tzuki”

    Henrik is right – judging by the photos this will either be insanely spotty or a mess with some big spots tossed in. I’m stoked!!!

    “3) Mascara Dorada, Metro IV, Valiente b Euforia, Nosferatu, Shigeo Okumura”

    Ah, so we are going with Metro IV! He looks bigger and not like much of a flyer. I’m interested to see him in action. I’m guessing Metro just renewed their sponsorship deal?

    Meanwhile it DOES look like Dorada busted out the springboard splits to the floor into a frankensteiner. But it is Dorada so he could have just as easily just be doing a silla, mess up the frankensteiner spot or have blown 10 spots in a row leading to that one insane move.:)

    “4) Black Warrior, Dragon Rojo Jr., Sangre Azteca b La Máscara, La Sombra, Sagrado”

    FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK.

    They’re gonna take the trios titles off perfectly good champs who have done nothing but provide great matches and give it to three guys who were randomly put together and won’t be a unit by March.

    FUCK.

  2. That’s because of the annoying German DNA: it always makes me be pedantic. ;-) By the way: the Gemelos and Chico Che want a shot at the DF Titles, not the IWRG ones. ;-)

    Taking away the Mexican Trios Titles from Sagrado, Sombra and Mascara could at least make sense if they want Sombra to form a permanent team with Volador and Mistico. After losing the titles, he wouldn’t be handicapped by taking care of two teams at the same time.

  3. @Ringo: AHA! Now it’s MY TURN!

    “Taking away the Mexican Trios Titles from Sagrado, Sombra and Mascara”

    The champs are actually Sagrado, Sombra and VOLADOR.;)

    I honestly wouldn’t mind them losing the titles (but I do like them as champs), I just don’t want them losing the belts to a team that is random and won’t last which is what I see in the future of the Poder Mexica.

  4. @LLL: Unless you know something about who she is related to and aren’t saying anything I would think her getting the title is about 5 years premature.
