04/21: Latin, Electroshock, Cibernetico

CMLL (TUE) 04/21 Arena Mexico
1) Rayo Tapatio I & Rayo Tapatio II vs Apocalipsis & Semental
2) Caligula, Messala, Polvora vs Angel Azteca Jr., Angel de Oro, Angel de Plata
3) Bam Bam, Mascarita Dorada, Shockercito vs Pequeño Damian 666, Pequeño Universo 2000, Pequeño Warrior
4) HIjo del Fantasma, Sagrado, Valiente vs Black Warrior, Lizmark Jr., Misterioso II
5) Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto vs La Mascara, Mistico, Volador Jr.

Previews: Ovaciones, ESTO – hype is around another matchup of Averno & Mistico, which reminds me how funny it was to hear the announcers talk about Negro Casas being Mistico’s biggest rival. Mistico has a lot of biggest rivals.

AAA says Latin Lover is scheduled to appear at tonight’s AAA taping. I was starting to wonder who Latin would be parodying, but it occurs to me that maybe the parody will be of Latin Lover.

Electroshock talks about the Lucha Libre Expo, his career, his time outside of AAA (“I was wrong, I needed help, therapy”), and haters on the internet.

(Reforma viz Jazzo) Cibernetico talks about making peace with the Perros, but also calls them all babies. I don’t think that’s going to work. The whole back and forth still seems like an angle being worked thru the press rather than Cibernetico leaving the promotion.

Kcidis illustrates Dos Caras Jr., the applause seeking rudo. Maybe CMLL thought they needed a new Wagner?

Hablando de Catch, which confused me this morning with it’s new template, takes photos of lucha merchandise outside of arenas and a preview of a series of CMLL books on the history of lucha libre. That should be good.

The Las Vegas Sun had lots of fun at Sundy’s show with Super Crazy & Super Parka and took some pictures.

Paraiso de la Lucha Libre has photos of a sparely attended benefit shot for Ricky Ricon.

Box Y Lucha #2919 has Mistico’s hand print (slow week?). Inside, Alebrije, Cuije, Nygma and Angel all talk about leaving AAA. (Is it time for a new list?) Also, It reads like Valiente was asked to lose weight if he’s going to get pushed. He’s has dropped a bunch of weight. Box Y Lucha also has an article full of Luchadores Versus Animals, with pictures.

Luchas 2000 #467 has a similar assemblage of headlines.

DTU has photos of their wrestlers attempting to look stern at a press conference for their show on Sunday.

Wrestling Obsverer has their AAA recap

Segunda Caida watched 03/26/09 IWRG.

Ohtani’s Jacket catches up with some recent CMLL off YouTube.

Cesar grades Mascara Purpura (marked down for being roja! – wait, he’s supposed to be a Cardinal?), Bronco and Ephesto.

LuchaWorld has Robert on CMLL TV 01/12/08 and C3 from 01/05/08 and KrisZ’s news update

  1. Are you saying they’re going to get a guy to dress up as Latin the same way they did Juventud Guerera?

  2. Konnan does the Juventud skits b/c he feels guilty… what the hell could he be guilty about when it comes to Latin Lover? Do we really want to know?:/

  3. I was afraid to click the link to OJ’s review but shocked at what I found.

    Notice how 2 weeks ago we had no IWRG TV at all and now you can go on youtube and find 3 different versions of the Navarro/Traumas vs Terry/Cerebros match?

  4. Dark Angel debuted for TNA at tonight’s taping losing to Awesome Kong in what is likely a dark match.

  5. I’ve been looking through Cesar’s grades for various CMLL guys and the one thing I don’t get is at the end he gives his final grade, but it looks kind of random. For example, Mistico got a 47 out of 70, but then he has Sagrado with a 30 out of 50, followed by La Sombra with a 30 out of 60. Shouldn’t that second number be the same for everyone?

  6. @Alfredo: No one’s figured out what system he’s using, and I guess my comment was missed or not easy to understand. I shall try again, but I believe the first number is the current score, and the last number is the best potential number for the character.

  7. @thecubsfan: That still kind of doesn’t make sense though since that last number is random for everyone. Shouldn’t Sombra’s number (60) be higher than Dos Jr. (90)? If were basing it on future potential, I would think La Sombra has more to offer down the road being that he’s younger and smaller in a lighter weight friendly promotion.

    Its a good read, but I think the final grade thing is too puzzling, at times missing (Ephesto), and also in some the math doesn’t add up (Bronco).
