02/15: Mistico, AAA in the US, lineups

Mistico beat Mephisto in NJPW’s show at the Sumo Hall today to retain the CMLL World Welterweight Title. Unfortunately, Mistico seemed to hurt a knee in the opening moments of the match and suffered the rest of the way thru. No telling how bad it is, or what plans NJPW had for him next.

Ovaciones mostly talks about tonight’s show in Arena Mexico. It does continue cover of Mascarita Ano 2000’s feud with Bracito de Oro, which is apparently taking place in Cancun (yet no room for the AAA taping)

As noted in the comments (and in a story on ESTO and on WagnerMania), Halloween resurfaced with Los Perros on the 02/13 Arena Neza show. After Wagner refused to join the Perros, they beat him down. Wagner made peace with Santo and Demon to set up a main event for next time – Wagner/Santo/Demon vs Perro/Damian/Halloween.

AAA teases more info about it’s video game in the latest Dos y Tres. (Which is what seemed to be shown on Tercera Caida.) Of note, the graphic to promote this says 2010, so don’t be running to GameStop for a deposit.

A post on F4Wonline’s board pointed out lineups for a couple of US Tour shows have been posted. Subject to change, of course.

AAA (SAT) 03/28 Arco Arena, Sacramento, CA[Arco Arena]
1) Decnnis & Mini Abismo Negro vs Mascarita Sagrada 2007 & Pimpinela Escarlata
2) Chessman vs Vampiro
3) Crazy Boy & Super Fly vs Jack Evans & Joe Lider
4) Abismo Negro, La Parka Jr., Laredo Kid vs Killer Clown, Psycho Clown, Zombie CLown
5) Charly Manson, Cibernetico, Mesias vs Cuervo, Escoria, Ozz

Notice Vampiro’s returning to the ring. No big surprise.

AAA (SAT) 04/04 San Diego Sports Arena [San Diego Sports Arena]
1) Fabi Apache, Octagoncito, Pimpinela Escarlata vs Decnnis, Mari Apache, Mini Abismo Negro
2) Crazy Boy & Super Fly vs Jack Evans & Teddy Hart
3) Mesias vs Chessman
4) Charly Manson & Cibernetico vs ? & Joe Lider
5) Abismo Negro, Electro Shock, La Parka Jr., Vampiro vs Killer Clown, Psycho Clown, Zombie Clown

Obviously the main event is wrong. Interesting that the Clowns are on both weekends at this point – you wouldn’t have expected that a few months ago (and it’s still surprising now.)

03/27 at the Save Mart Center (Fresno), 03/29 HP Pavilion and the 04/05 LA Sporta Arena (taping?) do not have more info posted yet.

A couple notes from SuperLuchas #302
– Cassandro says “Satanico el Exocito” was a mishearing that got spread on the internet, and he’s back in TNA on 02/23 and 02/24
– Super Crazy says he told AAA he’s staying indepedent for the time being. We’ll see on Wednesday

LuchaWorld has Robert on Lucha Libre Azteca 62, AAA from Morelon on 08/31/07, KrisZ’s news update and 81-90 in the Top 100 countdown.


CMLL (TUE) 02/17 Arena Mexico
1) Rayo Tapatio I & Rayo Tapatio II vs Artillero & Super Comando
2) Angel Azteca Jr., Angel de Oro, Angel de Plata vs Arkangel de la Muerte, Hooligan, Skandalo
3) Lluvia, Marcela, Sahori vs La Seductora, Princesa Blanca, Princesa Sujei
4) Hijo del Fantasma, Mascara Dorada, Valiente vs Dragon Rojo Jr., Felino, Sangre Azteca
5) La Mascara, Shocker, Volador Jr. vs Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas, Ultimo Guerrero

A show. CMLL.com lists the main event as for the Mexican National Trios Titles, for the third week in a row. (It’s not.)

IWRG (THU) 02/19 Arena Naucalpan
1) Halcon 2000 vs Comando Gama
2) Eragon & Fenix vs Hijo del Signo & Judas el Traidor
3) Chico Che, Trauma I, Trauma II vs Bushi, Cerebro Negro, Fantasma de la Opera
4) Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro vs Multifacetico, Pendulo, Zatura
5) Freelance vs Dr. Cerebro

Okay, keep that main event in mind.

CMLL (FRI) 02/20 Arena Mexico
1) Metalico, Starman, Trueno vs Apocalispis, Inquisidor, Ramstein
2) Angel de Oro, Angel de Plata, Flash vs Arkangel de la Muerte, Euforia, Nosferatu
3) Mascara Dorada vs Virus [lightning]
4) Blue Panther, Maximo, Ultimo Guerrero vs Averno, Texano Jr., Villano V
5) Hector Garza, Marco Corleone, Mistico vs Atlantis, Mr. Niebla, Rey Bucanero

This show still feels a match short. But at least Arkangel gets his shot at Flash and Ramstein exists. Also, we get to see how good Virus is (though he can’t prevent the ropes from eating Mascara Dorada up.)

Maximo’s involvement in that feud is still really odd. He’s comedy, that’s not an issue that needs comedy.

PERROS DEL MAL (FRI) 02/20 Plaza de Toros el Relicario, Puebla, Puebla
1) La Parkita, Mini Kung Fu, Piratita del Caribe vs Mr. Aguilita, Pequeno Halloween, Piratita Morgan
2) La Nazi vs Lizzy Valentine
3) Konami, Super Nova, X-Fly vs Momia, Murcielago, Vampiro (local)
4) Angel Blanco Jr. vs Olimpico [WWA MIDDLE]
5) Damián 666, Juventud Guerrero, Mr. Aguila vs Blue Demon Jr., El Hijo del Solitario, Intocable
6) Cibernetico & el Hijo del Perro Aguayo vs Dr. Wagner Jr. & Super Crazy

Uh oh. Was wondering what the deal with Mini FdT was, and it looks like Halloween and Aguilita have split town. That’s not good for anyone. (Don’t qutie feel as strong abotu La Nazi.)

Meanwhile, that WWA Middleweight title match is listed as for a vacant title. Angel Blanco held that title regularly until he dropped it to Mistico, and there’s also a Monterrey version floating about. I’m thinking this is neither, and Angel Blanco has just decided to declare himself champion. All the WWA titles are jokes, vanity belts of the umpteenth degree, and this seems no different.

CMLL MD (SAT) 02/21 Lienzo Charro de Atlacomulco, EdM
1) Bengala & Principe vs Flecha & Fobia
2) Pequeño Damian 666 & Pequeño Halloween vs Pequeño Olímpico & Ultimo Dragoncito
3) Amapola & Hiroka vs Lady Apache & Marcela
4) Estruendo, Maximo, Valiente vs Dragon Rojo Jr., Emperador, Misterioso II
5) Mistico & Volador Jr. vs Atlantis & Rey Bucanero

or, maybe the mini FdT is still with CMLL? Hmmm. This is one time where I really wish I was a person who could get an answer for these questions.

IWRG (SAT) 02/21 Arena Xochimilco
1) Galactik vs Comando Gama
2) Gemelo Fantastico I & Gemelo Fantastico II vs Anticristo Jr. & Vampiro Metalico
3) Chico Che, Trauma I, Trauma II vs Black Terry, Cerebro Negro, Fantasma de la Opera
4) Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro vs Dr. Cerebro, Freelance, Multifacetico [IWRG IC TRIOS]
5) Rayo de Jalisco Jr., Scorpio Jr., Tinieblas Jr. vs Head Hunter I, Hijo del Cien Caras, Mascara Ano 2000 Jr.

Cerebro and Freelance fight Thursday, get a title shot on the Saturday. That seems a bad idea. Looks like they’re getting close to the Traumas and Chico Che getting a DF Trios shot.

CMLL (SUN) 02/22 Arena Coliseo
1) Sensei & Sombra de Plata vs Camorra & Carrona
2) Goddess, Lady Apache, Lluvia vs Amapola, La Nazi, Rosa Negra
3) Flash, Metro, Stuka Jr. vs Loco Max, Shigeo Okumura, Skandalo
4) Mascara Purpura, Sagrado, Toscano vs Heavy Metal, Lizmark Jr., Terrible
5) Atlantis, Negro Casas, Rey Bucanero vs Dos Caras Jr., Marco Corleone, Volador Jr.

And La Nazi is scheduled to work here. Huh. Note no Ultimo Guerrero – however the singles match went tonight, he and Dos are done for the time being.

Given the big push for Metro, you’d figure he’d be in the semimian and Purpura would be in tercera.

CMLL (SUN) 02/22 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Skaxy vs Relampago Azul
2) Astaroth & Nube Roja vs Ebola & Valentin Mayo
3) Magnum & Metatron vs Rafaga & Rey Trueno
4) La Mascara, Mictlan, Shocker vs Blue Panther, La Sombra, Mascara Dorada and Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto and Black Warrior, Dragon Rojo Jr., Sangre Azteca [torneo]

They haven’t run a tournament here for a while. One of those other matches should be part of their ongoing tag team tournament (if it’s still ongoing.)

IWRG (SUN) 02/22 Arena Naucalpan
1) Goleador & Miss Gaviota vs King Drako & Vampiro Metalico
2) Eragon, Trauma I, Trauma II vs Anticristo Jr., Judas el Traidor, Nemesis IWRG
3) Freelance, Multifacetico, Zatura vs Avisman, Bushi, Fantasma de la Opera
4) Mascara Ano 2000 & Mascara Ano 2000 Jr. vs Head Hunter I & Head Hunter II

Setting up a tag title match here? The Capos and the believers (Veneno & Head Hunters and Bushi on some weeks) have fallen into a rudo/rudo feud.
