02/27: Mexico, Dos Leyendas, Rey de Reyes

There’s a show tonight, though it’s gotten lost in the shuffle.

CMLL (FRI) 02/27 Arena Mexico
1) Angel de Oro & Angel de Plata vs Caligula & Messala
2) Mascarita Dorada, Nino de Acero, Pequeno Ninja vs Pequeno Universo 2000, Pequeno Warrior, Pierrothito
3) Rey Cometa vs Artillero [lightning]
4) La Mascara, Maximo, Sagrado vs Ephesto, Terrible, Texano Jr.
5) Black Warrior, Blue Panther, Ultimo Guerrero vs Averno, Mephisto, Villano V
6) Hector Garza, Marco Corleone, Mistico vs Atlantis, Negro Casas, Rey Bucanero

The semimain is really the main event, but it’ll end up being the main event for the next month so there’s no rush now. Main event is build around a Mistico/Atlantis feud.

Most of the attention is on CMLL’s press conference: Ovaciones runs a big story on Ultimo Guerrero vs Villano V. In ESTO, Villano V requested that both his brothers work as his seconds for his title match. Somehow, CMLL was surprised by this request. They’re surely going to at least tease a switch again.

There’s a post on El Martinete’s board adding two more matches to Rey de Reyes
– El Apache, Fabi Apache, Aerostar vs Billy Boy, Cinthia Moreno, Oriental
– Teddy Hart, Jack Evans vs X-Pac, Alex Koslov vs a replacement for Super Crazy & Crazy Boy

I haven’t seen these officially listed anywhere. They’d be good matches, but it’d also make the taping marathon length – 10 matches, and AAA doesn’t usually cut down on time for these.

EDIT: I’m really tired this morning, but it occurred to me that it might be worth checking ticket master to see what they had. And they have a different lineup:

– Charly teaming with X-Pac and Alex and Zorro with Jack & Teddy instead of mystery partners
– Kenzo in Psycho Clown’s spot
– Gran Apache, Fabi Apache, Aerostar vs Billy Boy, Cinthia Moreno, Extreme Tiger as the opener.

That was probably an early lineup, but I got guess the post from el Martinete will eventually be proven correct and there’s a couple unadvertised matches. They didn’t mention the Mixed Tag match for Guerra de Titanes, IIRC.

There had be some talk of Villano III running for local office as a member of the Green Party. V3 told Box Y Lucha that he was a sure thing to win (?), but decided to focus on his wrestling career right now.

Rey Cometa & Pegasso are open to suggestions from the fans for a new team name.

Suburban Chicago News has an interview with local wrestler SWAT Cat. Video’s worth checking out for his giant mask display.

Ohtani’s Jacket enjoys Super Porky vs Asesino Negro.

SuperLuchas looks back at Konnan vs Perro Aguayo Sr.

LuchaWorld has Robert on 10/06/07 CMLL and AAA Verano de Escandalo 07, KrisZ’s news update and 30-20 in the top 100 countdown


CMLL (MON) 03/02 Arena Puebla
1) Black Tiger, Blue Center, Tigre Rojo vs Espiritu Maligno, Mr. Rafaga, Toro Bill Sr.
2) Astro Boy, Pegasso, Rey Cometa vs Euforia, Nosferatu, Vangelis
3) Mascara Dorada, Maximo, Metro vs Misterioso II, Shigeo Okumura, Virus
4) Princesa Blanca vs Marcela [MEX WOMEN]
5) Atlantis, Blue Panther, Ultimo Guerrero vs Averno, Mephisto, Villano V

THE REMATCH. No word on where Mima will be. No minis on the show leading up to the big minis cage match, which is an awful relaxed way to do it. Opening match tecnicos should bring the flag of East Frisia to ringside with them.

2) Quazar vs Katana
3) Astaroth vs Asesino Negro
