Ultimo Guerrero vs Villano V to face in a mask vs mask match on March 20th

8:30pm: Update at the end of the poast

That’s your Dos Leyendas main event. I’m not sure if that was the plan all along, or if Villano III cost himself (and Blue Panther) this pay day by opting to do the hair match with Scorpio Jr. this weekend in Arena Neza, but CMLL announced a straight singles one on one match for the masks. Tickets go on sale next week.

The talk, when V5 beat Blue Panther, is that V5 would ultimately lose his mask in turn to build up a young wrestler. If you believe that talk, Ultimo Guerrero does not exactly fit the bill as a young wrestler. (On the other hand, one could say V5’s importance has been so diminished, it’s not the boost beating Panther would’ve been for anyone else.)

If Ultimo beats Villano 5, then I think we can definitely say we would’ve preferred this sequence of events to be Ultimo taking Blue Panther’s mask and anyone taking Villano 5’s. But, we need to keep on saying if, because CMLL’s shown they’ll do silly things just to do the surprise.

Other notes from the press conference
– Dragon Rojo Jr. has a new mask. No picture yet, but I’m sure we’ll see it soon.

– Hector Garza is starting a tecnico midcard group again. This time, it’s Angel de Oro, Angel de Plata, Angel Azteca Jr. and Metro. Hmm, who doesn’t belong? Maybe we can call him Angel de Diario.

No one remembers this, but the Angels were actually in Hector’s group last year – they were introduced as Angel I & Angel II at the time. Anyway, no idea if this is supposed to be a separate undercard act or if they’ve forgotten Hijo del Fantasma and La Mascara.

Since Mistico doesn’t like Garza, maybe now he can be free to complain that giving guys “Angel de Plata” and “Angel de Oro” gimmicks is totally ripping off and marganilizing his identity. They really seem like Martha Villalobos knock off Mistico characters than CMLL ones.

Update (1): Box Y Lucha’s take on the press conference does clarify that Hijo del Fantasma and La Mascara are supposed to be part of Hector’s group.

In big news somehow lost in the shuffle, Misterioso II was announced as a new member of Hijos del Averno.  We’re down to just Virus, Vangelis, Okumura and Lizmark Jr. as unaligned notable rudos in CMLL.

  1. This might explain why they yanked Misterioso II in favor of Maximo for the Arena Mexico semi-main a few weeks back. It doesn’t explain why Misterioso II (from the Laguna) was 100% pro Laguneros until this press conference where he is now suddenly teaming with their arch rivals…

  2. Just a matter of not knowing what to do…
    Like the cubs himself, who stopped linking Luchando Libre on order to kiss Ernesto’s ass

  3. @Roger: Actually, I stopped linking to Luchando Libre because I totally forgot about Luchando Libre. I do RSS feeds because I can look at them at any computer (and I end up switching around pretty regularly) via Google Reader, but bookmarks never work for me. So if I’m only watching a site via bookmark, sometimes I just forgot about it when I’m typing in URLs to check. It’s clearly the worst system in the world but it’s the one I’ve been stuck on since dropping the cheat sheet.

    I wish you would’ve found a better way of bringing it up – but I do think you for reminding me.

  4. If V-V takes UG’s hood as well, he’ll simply collapse to a singularity, sucking in every mask in Mexico City.

  5. THERE IS NO WAY VILLANO V IS WINNING ULTIMO GUERRERO’S MASK. END OF STORY.

    Unless Keith posts and predicts it will go down that way.

    Then I will cry.
