03/01: Toreo, IWRG


indy (FRI) 02/27 Arena Neza [SuperLuchas #304]
1) Pesadilla & Taza el Feroz b Konami & Radge
2) Black Spirit, Orion Negro, Turbo b Black Thunder, Skayde, Vampiro Metalico
3) Hermano Muerte II & Hermano Muerte III b Coco Verde & Cocolores
4) Dr. Wagner Jr. & Super Crazy DQ LA Park & Super Parka
5) Villano III b Scorpio Jr. [hair]

I thought this was meant to be the Perros vs Santo/Wagner/Demon show, but obviously not.

Scorpio got a little bit cut and walked to the back without his head being shaved.

Super Parka fouled Super Crazy, then laid out both Park and Wagner and challenged them to a three way apuesta match. That’s a way of giving someone the Park/Wagner match without actually giving it to them. Muertes and Cocos set up the own mask match in the tercera.

IWRG (THU) 02/26 Arena Naucalpan [SuperLucha #304, Al Filo del Ring]
1) Keshin Black b Epidemia
2) Gemelo Fantastico I & Gemelo Fantastico II b Judas el Traidor & Vampiro Metalico

5) Emilio Charles Jr., Fuerza Guerrera, Scorpio Jr. DDQ el Hijo del Pierroth, Tetsuya Bushi, Toxico DF

Oficials successfully defended the belt twice in a row! Which got them in trouble – the DF commission told SuperLuchas they wouldn’t have approved this title match if they knew they were scheduled to defend it in Xochimilco the night before, because they’re taking the risk of falsely advertising a title match here. (I guess the investigation into UG having multiple #1 challengers at the same time has just been kept on the down low.)

Oficials didn’t settle for just a clean win, they ran in the main event to beat down both teams. This will not end well for them. Al Filo del Ring talks to the team about their team and trios in a good interview.

This was taped for TVC Deportes.

The latest version of Mistico’s origin story:
– he knows his mother and father, and knows his father was a former wrestler
– still, he ran away from home for unknown reasons and wandered the streets for 10 years
– he met Fray Tormenta, and begged him to train him for wrestling, but Fray Tormenta said no (?)
– so Mistico started training in secret in Arena Mexico.
– Tormenta trained him anyway when he turned 20
– and Mistico also wrestled in Japan as Komachi
– he was renamed from that to Mistico and debuted in Arena Mexico in 2004.

That’s not complicated at all. Wait till they try to fit in Astro Boy and the bit about his home planet exploding.

SuperLuchas #304 also has an interview with Blue Demon Jr., very proud of being the first masked Mexican wrestler in ROH

(via SuperLuchas) Before Saturday’s taping, Silver King talked up his feud with Parka. Silver King suggest a retirement match or maybe car vs car, or house vs house, or wife vs wife. Do you really want to win an extra wife? There are upsides and downsides.

There’s a new El Santo exhibition at Universidad Iberoamericana.

Box Y Lucha notes the passing of Toro Negro Jr., two years ago Saturday.

Annual the wrath of god the box y lucha commission is about to come down on all those who didn’t get licenses in Laguna story. This is usually the end of the stories for the year, except maybe for one about how everyone got their licenses after all.

Rematch of this week’s main event, so obvious we’re setting up a title match here. By the way, there’s very little chance SuperLucha’s expected Dos Leyendas card (including these trios titles against the other trios titles in unification match) coming thru. Even the welterweight title match tease is unlikely, or more likely another day – that’s the usual method of CMLL chain yanking. I totally agree with the idea of it being neat if they did that sort of card but I don’t believe they do more than a two match card (and not a two singles main event match card) until they start doing them.

3) Danny Boy vs Romano Garcia [hair]

5) Canek vs ?

The main event is being sold on the idea that Canek will face someone he feuded with in el Toreo, and they won’t reveal it until the show. I’m guessing that Flecha is actually Skayde but I’m not sure.

I’m having trouble making sense of these. And it’s not totally me being dumb this time.

The mystery man in the main event was non-existent, apparently. Konnan interfered (or was meant to be the tecnicos partners, I’m not all together sure) and the rudos won, but Konnan fell and hurt his hip due to Mesias. That they’d mention this on the website probably means angle, but it also probably means we’re getting out of Konnan and Vampiro (which still wasn’t announced or set up here – no sign of Vampiro.) Whatever it took not to get that match is for the best. AAA’s promising an update on Konnan’s condition soon.

It may be fixed by the time you read this (which is why that link up there is a cached version of the page), but the website says Super Crazy wrestled in the semimain. The way it just off hand mentions it means it’s probably a brainfree and supposed to be Crazy Boy, since he was listed in the match. Alex Koslov was the surprise wrestler (surprise!) but the match was more Silver King beating up La Parka Jr. again.

Abismo Negro was selling the beating from Wednesday’s taping during his match, and Nikki distracted Elegido to help Jack Evans and Teddy Hart win.

The description of the opener points out how two men and one women vs two women and one men is totally unfair and states that Aerostar will be finding his way into the feud to even it up at some point.

Next show is Wednesday, the last show before Rey de Reyes. Perhaps they’ll reveal the card to the people without internet access there?
