Mexico results, lineups, AAA owns “Super Porky”?

CMLL (FRI) 05/15 Arena Mexico [SuperLuchas, Record, Cesar, Ovaciones]
1) Sensei & Starman b Inquisidor & Semental
2) Bam Bam, Mascarita Dorada, Shockercito b Pequeño Damian 666, Pequeño Violencia, Pequeño Warrior
3) Amapola b Marcela [lightning]
4) Mascara Dorada, Mictlan, Stuka Jr. b Euforia, Nosferatu, Shigeo Okumura
5) La Mascara, La Sombra, Sagrado b Ephesto, Terrible, Texano Jr.
6) Blue Panther, Mistico, Shocker b Averno, Dos Caras Jr., Mephisto

Neither Shocker or Dos were pinned in their match – Mephisto and Averno got Panther and Mistico in the first fall, then the tecnicos returned the favor in the second and third.

Story of the night was the semimain. Rey Bucanero, not on the card, showed up early in the night to sit ringside (with two women.) Ephesto and his partners got into an argument with him, and ended up beating him up. This distracted them from their match and caused them to lose in straight falls, plus Rey was swearing revenge.

Possibly related, the outside the ring talks was about 3 second generation wrestlers who are headed into CMLL in the next few weeks. There are a trio of juniors that are kinda/sorta related to Bucanero who’d work as back up here, and filler for an anti-TripleMania cage match. (Maybe this ties in to DJ Spectro’s comment about something happening on June 3rd?) Of course, if you look at the lineups, it may be some things a little less exciting.

Mima Shimoda was out with Okumura for his match and helping the rudos, much to the commission’s annoyance. Didn’t help win.

Amapola snuck in the backcracker just before the time limit to win that match.

Mini tecnicos were said to look good. Shockercito pinned Damian with his feet on the ropes for the win, and they seem to be feuding.

Attendence was up from last week (it’d kinda have to be.)

Ovaciones note the passing of Polaris I (Jose Arguello Luna), a EMLL wrestle from the 70s and 80s. He was born in Perote, Veracruz, on January 25, 1946, and also wrestled under the names Pepe Luna and Dr. Macabro (where he lost his mask to Huracan Ramriez) during his 25 year career. He returned as Polaris in 1981, teaming with Los Bravos and Los Guerreros at times, and lost his mask to Climax II in Pista Arena Revolucion in May of 1986.

A bunch of articles from Record:
Toscano is now three weeks out from returning, which would put him back just in time for the anti-TripleMania card. He’s going to be wrestling with a plate and six screws in one fibula.
Shocker sees his feud with Dos Jr. as David versus Goliath and points out David’s strong record in those matchups.
– AAA is claiming they own the name Super Porky (which may be why he’s going under Elvis Porky lately.) Porky says he signed over the right to the name to Antonio Pena when he joined AAA, but only for the time he’d be with the company. Article says AAA is expected to announce a lawsuit in upcoming days.

AAA mentions the Mexician National Cruiserweight Championship, just to point out the new one is not connected (and to say the former champion Karis La Momia has disappeared into oblivion – we could be so lucky) and looks back at TripleMania IV (where Karis La Momia won a mask.)

Kcidis has a drawing of Sombra, and notes the similarity between Sombra, Oro and Diamante Negro’s mask design.

LuchaWorld has Robert on Guerreros del Ring 05/03 and 05/10/08 and 04/18/04 Monterrey.

CMLL (MON) 05/18 Arena Puebla
1) Centella de Oro & SWAT vs Fuerza Chicana & Policeman
2) Lluvia, Marcela, Star Fire vs Crazy Star, Hiroka, Princesa Blanca
3) Fabian el Gitano, Leono, Tony Rivera vs Euforia, Nosferatu, Vangelis
4) Misterioso II, Terrible, Texano Jr. vs La Mascara, Sagrado, Shocker
5) Atlantis, Rey Bucanero, Ultimo Guerrero vs La Sombra, Mistico, Volador Jr.

Main event is a rematch of last week.

CMLL (TUE) 05/19 Arena Mexico
1) Bengala & Molotov vs Cholo & Zayco
2) Pequeno Damian 666, Pequeño Warrior, Pierrothito vs Electrico, Shockercito, Ultimo Dragoncito
3) Flash, Hijo del Sicodelico, Stuka Jr. vs Euforia, Nosferatu, Virus
4) La Sombra, Maximo, Volador Jr. vs Felino, Lizmark Jr., Mr. Niebla
5) Atlantis, Rey Bucanero, Ultimo Guerrero vs Ephesto, Terrible, Texano Jr.

Bengala makes his debut, after being canceled due to the flu. Hijo del Sicodelico was mentioned as coming in a while back – he’s the guy working the California indies, not the one who just signed with WWE.

CMLL (FRI) 05/22 Arena Mexico
1) Principe Valiente & Trueno vs Ramstein & Semental
2) Dr. X, Hooligan, Skandalo vs Angel Azteca Jr., Angel de Oro, Angel de Plata
3) Pequeno Olimpico vs Pequeno Universo 2000 [lightning]
4) Hijo del Fantasma, La Mascara, Mascara Dorada vs Black Warrior, Dragon Rojo Jr., Sangre Azteca
5) Blue Panther, La Sombra, Volador Jr. vs Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto
6) Atlantis, Dos Caras Jr., Ultimo Guerrero vs Hector Garza, Mistico, Shocker

Principe Valiente is (or was) an Arena Queretaro. He sometimes wrestles as Principe Valiente Jr., so that’s one junior, Hijo de Sicodelico is another, and Bengala stands a good chance of being one of the Casas brother’s sons, so I guess they could be the three juniors.

While Bucanero does get a match on Tuesday, it’s interesting that he doesn’t have one on Friday to follow up the angle. Perhaps they’ll follow it up in a different way.

  1. I’m not going to try to referee the Rob/USAUSA1 dispute, particularly since I was out of the country for the CMLL anniversary show last year and only followed things through this blog. I was at TripleMania though and here is what I remember. We sat in the front row of section B4. We paid 500 pesos each for the seats which is probably about the same as the 600 pesos being charged this year. I checked today and the closest they have right now is row C in this price range. They didn’t sell any seats in the upper deck of Palacio (entire area was tarped off), but other than that the arena was pretty full. So, I think it would depend on what you consider a sellout. I think they sold nearly all of the tickets they attempted to sell, but definitely did not fill up the building to capacity. From what I can see on Ticketmaster, it looks like they are trying to sell everywhere in the building this year, with prices ranging from 100 pesos to 1,200 pesos. If the arena holds 20,000 (wikipedia, but not sure if this is for lucha) I would think they would need to come close to selling out to match the gate from Dos Leyandas this year.

  2. *fingers crossed* that the mini’s trios makes Puebla TV. That main event will surely be something.

  3. @USAUSA1: Neither of those links point to any evidence of CMLL ticket prices being dirt cheap or AAA prices being inflated. Unless I’m overlooking something? For what it’s worth, Chui wasn’t at Triplemania – Alan was.

    CMLL did 2 for 1 on the cheap seats for the Anniversary and still drew the gate Meltzer mentioned above just based on the expensive closer seats. Now imagine if they hadn’t done the 2 for 1 cheap seats? We wouldn’t even be discussing this b/c it would have been called the biggest gate since Triplemania 1993.

  4. @Alan: YAY! Dorada finally makes Puebla TV in a regular match! Hopefully my conspiracy theory gets shattered and he gets to lock up with Pequeno Damian. They fought on the 52MX show this weekend and never touched! Third match in a row they’ve been on opposite sides in Arena Mexico and never got an exchange!

  5. @USAUSA1: Triplemania may not even be AAA’s biggest show of the year. Rey De Reyes or Escandalo will probably sell more tickets. In Mexico, I think both 2Leyendas and Anniversary will sell more tickets than Triplemania

    Sure, AAA charges more, but Palacio is expensive, so AAA does not get as much money after expenses, while CMLL owns their own buildings.

  6. @Rob: They definitely locked up a few times here including for the final DQ. I was distracted during the match so I can’s say how major the exchanges were, but hopefully this is a sign of returning to another program between the two.
