five quick thoughts about Rey de Reyes

While we’re all still waiting to find out how that opening trios turned out:

1) when they decided to tease Mesias vs Wagner, did they have a finish for that match in mind? Wagner’s not going to lose. AAA’s not going to give Wagner their title unless Wagner commits to stay there for a long period, and Wagner’s not down with that.

Then again, this poll question:

2) In a year where you’re just doing the Rey de Reyes to do it, Electroshock is actually the perfect winner. Points for existing. (And points to RL for being the only non-anonymous person to pick him.)

If you check out the photos on Box Y Lucha’s Wagner to AAA story, you can see Electroshock is among a mass of goofballs laid out from something or other. (I presume Mesias beat up 12 men by himself.) That’s probably a sign of how meaningful that win was.

3) Do all the TV tapings for the next four weeks – including the US swing, that’s the number of lineups announced right now – get torn up this week or do guys like Marco and Juvi stay out of the ring four weeks?

Whatever way, we’ll probably have a good idea of the new programs by this time next week.

4) Is Konnan still in control of AAA? Is Vampiro still commissioner? (I don’t think so)? Did Padrino disappear when no one was paying attention?

5) If we want back to Guerra de Titanes, I think you’d the depth chart would go like

Tecnicos (top 4)
– Mesias
– Latin Lover
– La Parka Jr.
– Charly Manson

Rudos (top 4)
– Konnan
– Zorro
– Chessman
– Electroshock?

and today

Who’s got leverage and who doesn’t can change again this Friday.

03/16: Mexico, GDL, IWRG

CMLL (SUN) 03/15 Arena Mexico [Ovaciones, SuperLuchas]
1) Caligula & Messala b Molotov & Trueno
2) Arkangel de la Muerte, Loco Max, Skandalo b Fabian el Gitano, Flash, Stuka Jr.
3) Dark Angel, Lady Apache, Marcela b Hiroka, Princesa Blanca, Sahori
4) Angel Azteca Jr., Blue Panther, La Sombra b Lizmark Jr., Mr. Niebla, Rey Bucanero
5) Hector Garza, Hijo del Fantasma, La Mascara b Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto [CMLL TRIOS]

Title match came down to Averno and Mascara, and Mascara got Averno clean with the campana. Angel Azteca was the fill in for Marco and looked good. That match was all about Panther and Lizmark cheating each other. Sahori filled in for Rosa Negra (who did not jump to AAA, as far as I know!), though she was a reluctant participant on the ruda side and may have caused her team to lose.

No updates on replacements for Marco tomorrow and Sunday yet.

CMLL (SUN) 03/15 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [ESTO, MT]
4) Dos Caras Jr., Mistico, Volador Jr. b Atlantis, Heavy Metal, Negro Casas
5) Texano Jr. DQ Maximo [hair]

Texano won in straight falls. Backcracker to win the first. Texano and Maximo were brawling in the ring during the second fall. They were using punches, so Tigre Hispano got involved to stop them, Maximo tried to sneak in a kick, and Texano faked it as a low blow. Tiger Hispano bought it, and that was the end of Maximo’s pink hair.

Negro got Mistico with La Mistica on Friday, so Mistico got Negro with a casita here. The Dos Jr. turn seems to have disappeared this week.

IWRG (SUN) 03/15 Arena Naucalpan [Box Y Lucha; photos]
1) Comando Negro & Judas el Traidor b Garra de Aguila & Latin Brother
2) Black Terry, Cerebro Negro, Dr. Cerebro b Gemelo Fantastico I, Trauma I, Trauma II [EDM TRIOS]
3) Zatura b Tetsuya Bushi [IWRG IC LIGHT]
4) Oficial 911, Oficial AK47, Oficial Fierro b Arlequín, Hijo de Pierroth (IWRG), Pierroth II [IWRG IC TRIOS]
5) Hijo del Cien Caras & Mascara Ano 2000 Jr. b Head Hunter I & Head Hunter II [IWRG IC TAG]

Only title change was Zatura beating Bush for the lightweight title.
