Mistico: Put me in a big main event or I’ll leave (maybe)

Today, Mistico is complaining to Record about how he’s a really big star and CMLL isn’t getting 100% out of him because they refuse to put him in apuesta matches. Mistico specifically complains he’s not headlined a major show since in well too long.

09/29/06: Mistico vs Black Warrior – this is the one the article cites

Mistico threatens to leave CMLL and go to Japan or WWE, but he wants to be treated like a king wherever he goes. I don’t know about Japan, but I’m pretty sure I know how that’d go down in WWE (not so well.)

I doubt very much he’s going anywhere, but this is a strange interview to do. The biggest problem is Mistico very much appears to be already getting exactly what he wants; everyone expects the anniversary main event to be Mistico vs Negro in a mask versus hair match (with stuff like Shocker/Dos existing as back up plans if someone gets hurt.) Even more, it’s not like CMLL has been overlooking Mistico otherwise – he surely would’ve main evented the anniversary show versus Perro last year if not for injury, and he’s in the main event 3/4ths of the time he wrestles in Arena Mexico (and about 100% everywhere else.)

If Mistico think he’s being mistreated compared to anyone else, he desperately needs some perspective. He could also learn to be a big more humble and finding better ways to make these complaints than thru the press, where they’ll only ultimately cause him hard. Mistico’s got away with this before and may get away with again because he’s MISTICO, but the day’s quickly approaching when he’ll just be the guy who used to be Mistico (ask Shocker about that) and these things will come back to bite him.

The only sane explanation for this is CMLL decided to go with Shocker/Dos instead for the Anniversary show, and then maybe an explosion like this was warranted. But I can’t believe even CMLL sees rudo Dos as something to get behind to that degree.

In other Reforma articles, Konnan is not just banned from wrestling at TripleMania, but from stepping foot in the arena. Yea, that’s not going to work. Silver King is meeting with the commission tomorrow, and it sounds like they’ll let him off with a public apology and a promise not to wear his mask again. Jack’s still banned as well – though apparently not in as much trouble, because they’ve decided Konnan’s more to blame – and Fantasma says he met with Dorian Roldan to go over all of this a couple days ago.

Tuesday notes, Mistico in champs tournament, AAA upcoming tapings, Pierroth

Today’s Fan Apperciation Day in Arena Mexico, with Shockercito vs Pequeno Damian 666 in a hair match. Tecnico is always the favorite, but this one could go either way. Shockercito’s won his last hair match two months ago, Mini Damian lost his first hair match but has won the last two.

Horus also debuts today, and we lack almost any info on him compared to some of the recent arrivals. (Anyone seen Hijo de Sicodelico since his match?) Over on el Martinete, there’s a repost of an interview which doesn’t reveal much, but he claims to have been wrestling for 15 years. Over on Box Y Lucha, there’s a post suggesting this is someone who has been previously wrestling as Hijo de (something).

This week’s Ras de Lona lists Mistico, Mephisto and Epehsto among the eight in Block B of CMLL Universal tournament. Mistico did a promo earlier in the show hyping up that Kid’s Day show teasing a match with Pesta Negra, so perhaps this was a late change. The show talks with some of the participants, plus No Limit.

AAA lists taping for 06/17 (Ecatepec) and 06/20 (Orizaba). That’d be 3 tapings in a week, and that last taping would air about 3 weeks after.

Did Espectro get brought back by AAA? Not sure who’s working as La Chiva at the moment.

Jack’s still teaming with Teddy on the spot shows.

06/03: Fixed the next two links

Mascara Dorada chats today with El Universal at noon, which is probably after you’ve read this.
