02/07: Mexico, GDL, Puebla

CMLL (FRI) 02/06 Arena Mexico [Ovaciones, Alan in the comments!]
1) Molotov & Sensei b Artillero & Súper Comando
2) Angel de Oro, Angel de Plata, Metálico b Arkangel de la Muerte, Hooligan, Loco Max
3) Astro Boy b Calígula [lightning]
4) Bam Bam, Mascarita Dorada, Shockercito b Pequeño Violencia, Pequeño Warrior, Pierrothito
5) Terrible, Villano III, Villano V DQ Misterioso II, Rey Bucanero, Último Guerrero
6) Atlantis, Heavy Metal, Negro Casas b La Sombra, Místico, Volador Jr.

Mr. Niebla did end up missing the main event after Thursday’s car accident. Hope he’s doing well. Heavy Metal replaced him, and the rudos won and challenged for the tag team titles as you’d expect, except I’m not so sure which two it’s supposed to be now (since it clearly was Negro/Niebla last week.)

Villano’s team took the semimain in straight falls. They won the first and were going after UG’s mask in the second when Blue Panther ran in thru the crowd and fouled V5. Brawl continued from there. When it was settled down, both sides seemed to agree on a V3/V5 vs Panther/UG double hair/mask match for 03/20. Yes, they appear to be setting a main event for a big show *7* weeks in advance. Must’ve been an awesome planning session over the holidays.

CMLL (FRI) 02/06 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [ESTO, mt, CaNek-TaPaTiO @ box y lucha]
1) Metal Blanco & Metatron b Mr. Trueno & Rey Trueno
2) Mr. Aguilita, Pequeño Damian 666, Pequeño Halloween b Boomerang, Meteoro, Virgo
3) Ephesto & Mephisto b Mascara Dorada & Stuka Jr.
4) Black Warrior, Dragon Rojo Jr., Sangre Azteca b Máximo, Sagrado, Shocker
5) Medussa L Princesa Blanca, Lady Apache, Amapola, Mima Shimoda, Sahori, Dark Angel, Goddess, Hiroka, Marcela, La Nazi [cage, hair]

Order of escape was Goddess, Mima, Sahoria, La Nazi, Marcela, Hiroka, Dark Angel. This left Lady Apache versus Amapola, Princesa Blanca, and Medussa. Rudas beat Apache for a while. Amapola left, leaving the other two to bumble there way into letting Lady Apache escape. Blanca blocked a Medussa casita and got one of her own for the win. Blanca wins a hair and a title in 8 days.

Warrior got the pin on Shocker in the third fall of the semimain thru a foul.

No results from the Perros show yet, but posts & photos on the box y lucha board say Super Crazy turned on the tecnicos and joined the Perros.

Outside the minis cibernetico, this is just an ordinary card. That’s atypical for these fan appreciation shows.

This card is about as good, so I don’t know who’s going to go to both of these. (Probably not enough to make a difference.) First time Hooligan’s been here since November.

WagnerMania has video of Wagner vs Lyger from 1996.

Lineups when they show up.
