06/21 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara Lineup (50th Anniversary)

CMLL (SUN) 06/21 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Metalico & Tigre Blanco vs Caligula & Messala
2) Estrella Magica, Lady Apache, Sahori vs Amapola, Crazy Star, Magnifica
3) Mascara Dorada, Metro, Valiente vs Misterioso II, Shigeo Okumura, Virus
4) Hector Garza, Hijo del Fantasma, Mistico vs Naito, Negro Casas, Yujiro
5) La Sombra & Volador Jr. vs Atlantis & Ultimo Guerrero [CMLL TAG]

CMLL put up the lineup this afternoon, though they actually forgot to list the date. Small detail. Card seems okay, but it’s not Mistico vs Felino in a mask match in terms of importance.

Virus & Mascara Dorada’s title match seems to be missing for the time being. Maybe they forgot, maybe they’re saving it for another day.

Notes on the Universal Tournament, Wagner, Pierroth

The 8 champions in this week’s CMLL Universal Tournament block posed for a group photo and discuessed their chances. Hopefully that photo turns up larger somewhere. (Hmm, kinda like the box y lucha one. Notimex has a lot more quote. Volador Jr. is the only bold enough to predict a win.

Atlantis also talked about his “Atlantis al rescate” movie, which will air before Friday’s lucha show. A second movie is supposed to be completed by the end of the month.

WagnerMania posts photos from the show in Torreon on Friday. Interesting to see that the cage match was actually using a MMA cage. Wagner did a promo for the website saying he’s not exclusive to AAA.

Mistico is celebrating his fifth anniversary of wrestling with walking and a special mass. That’s some party!

AAA looks back at the history of Cien Caras in AAA.

Latest commission update: Fantasma really wants to work with AAA to settle all of this, but Konnan needs to come to his office to make this work. Silver King is cleared to wrestle as long as he doesn’t wear his mask. No mention of Jack, so perhpas he’s settled too.

In July, Mistico, Dos, UG and Shocker will appear on lottery cards. The same article says the GDL Anniversary main event on 06/21 will be Volador & Sombra vs Ultimo & Atlantis for the tag titles, which was supposed to be the main event for the canceled show last April.

Proyeccion Luchistica talks to Veneno & Ricky Cruz about Pierroth. Veneno says Pierroth is conscious and lucid, but still has issues speaking. Fuego en el Ring also talks to La Nazi about Pierroth when talking about her career.

LuchandoLibre posts video of the EAW show. Box Y Lucha has it’s own recap of the show.

Konnan is headed to Panama for a show on July 4th.

LuchaWorld has Robert on 02/24/08 & 03/02/08 GDL and a lot of Monterery, plus KrisZ’s news update.

Ras de Lona includes Magadan massaging Monito around the 20 minute mark. Also, they edit the first block of the universal tournament into something dramatic and exciting. It’s magic.

Luchas 2000 473 has 3/5s of the team to save AAA.

CMLL CAN52 #178 (04/18)

taped 04/11

It occurred to me that I hadn’t done the show with Rosa/Marcela, and as one of the five people who might care, I ought to track it down.

Rosa Negra vs Marcela in a mask vs hair match (and part 2): And, on second thought, I didn’t really need to. I guess it actually was worth knowing this match wasn’t anything special. Better than most Good Women Trying To Carry A Bad Women To A Decent Match (or any of Leono’s big matches), but not what the actual good match I thought it could be.

Not totally sure it was due to the injuries, because Rosa was kinda of exposed as a good trios wrestler who didn’t have much offense to carry a beatdown in a singles match. (Maybe if they gave her more than one singles match, they could’ve worked on fixing that.) Still, Rosa’s injury seemed to end the match minutes early, which is a shame, and hopefully they’ll get another try at this someday. I’m still not sure what the actual deal with Marcela’s injury; if it was as bad as they were making it out, then it was really odd for Rosa to work the back for the rest of the match, but Marcela was in clear pain either way. The missed dive looked planned, but Marcela just landed a little worse than expected.
