Torreon, GDL, EAW, IWRG

AAA WAGNER (SAT) 06/27 Estadio Revolulcion de Torreon, Coahuila [WagnerMania]
1) Oso Negro & Psycho b Dorado Jr. & Makina 27
2) Arana del Futuro, Gran Jefe I, Sexy Francis b El Dorado, Emperador Azteca, Sexy Piscis
3) Chamuco Trevino & Conflictus CO Espanto V & Stuka I [Relevos Increíbles ]
4) May Flowers & Polvo de Esterllas b Aerostar & Super Fly
5) Killer Clown, Psycho Clown, Zombie Clown b Alex Koslov, Charly Manson, El Elegido
6) Dr. Wagner Jr. & Konnan DQ Mesias & Silver King

Konnan refused to wrestle in the main event. Psycho Clown, seconding Konnan for no clear reason, unmasked Wagner for the DQ. Post match mic work teased Wagner/Silver vs Mesias/Konnan, but Mesias & Konnan didn’t like that idea. Earlier in the show, they teased Silver King vs La Parka Jr., Mesias vs Wagner in a rematch and May Flowers & Polvo de Estrellas vs Sexy Francis & Sexy Piscis for future shows. Despite the local commission telling him not to, Silver King wrestled in his mask, causing an upset editorial.

Zocalo and via DJ Espectro talks about the benefit show for Jerry Estrada in Monclova (one of a few), but isn’t big on spelling out results.

CMLL (SUN) 06/28 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [Fuego en el Ring]
1) Astaroth & Hierro b Acertijo & Angel del Mal
2) Azazel & Rafaga b Palacio Negro & Virgo
3) Mr. Trueno & Rey Trueno b Magnum & Metatron
4) Casanova, Metro, Stuka Jr. b Dr. X, Satanico, Skandalo
5) Felino, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas DQ Hijo del Fantasma, La Mascara, Mistico

Full results, just had the main event yesterday. Stuka and Satanico feuded in the semimain. Thought it may just be random, but Satanico felt Stuka was to full of himself, talking about having wrestled in 2 other countries while Satanico’s wrestled in more than 15. That’s not all – Satanico was also upset with Stuka and more so Ultimo Guerrero proclaiming the best wrestlers come from schools in Comarca Lagunera. Satanico wasn’t going to let Guadalajara be disrespected like that. Satanico vows never to forget this, and hopes to soon have a battle between the rival schools. This sounds like a fantastic idea for a cibernetico.

There’s also an interview with No Limit on wrestling in Mexico. They say the wrestling isn’t so much different as the fans. Yujiro says he loves Mexico, and also points out he has no girlfriend so he hopes he meets a Mexican girl to marry and bring back to Japan with him.

EAW (SUN) 06/28 Gimnasio Lazaro Cadenas, Salamanca, Guanajuato [box y lucha, or the nearly identical recap on LuchandoLibre, ESTO]
1) Gallito Colorado & MatriXXX b America & Terror Negro
2) Dinastia, Pequeno Angel, Ragde b Pesadilla, Siniestro, Talaxys
3) Dralion & Erick Snake b Nightmare & Skam 13
4) Tracy Taylor b La Diabolica
5) Don Pollo & El Alebrije b Hijo de Pirata Morgan & Pirata Morgan Jr.
6) Super Crazy & Zumbido b Juventud Guerrera & Scorpio Jr.
7) Dr. Wagner Jr. & Super Porky DQ El Hijo del Solitario & Pirata Morgan

Wagner wasn’t working with AAA this day, so he had no problem working here. Solitario pulled Wagner’s mask, got the pin, but the ref figured it out in the end. Scorpio made Zumbido bleed a great deal, but Zumbido came back to win. They’re still teasing that hair match.

IWRG (SUN) 06/28 Arena Naucalpan [KrisZ]
1) Sangre Latina b Fly Star
2) Chico Che & Rigo b Carta Brava Jr. & Judas el Traidor
3) Trauma I & Trauma II b Ghost Rider & Xibalba
4) Fantasma de la Opera, Mascara Ano 2000 Jr., Sauron b Bobby Lee Jr., Oficial 911, Oficial AK47
5) Avisman & Freelance NC Suicida & Tetsuya Bushi [Relevos Increíbles]

Main event was advertised last week as a six way cage match with Turbo and Black Thunder. Plans change. This main event went to a no contest, so they’ll do it again this weekend with hair mask on the line.

CMLL (MON) 06/29 Arena Puebla [CMLL]
5) La Sombra & Volador Jr. b Felino & Negro Casas [CMLL TAG]

Ovaciones has an interview with Panico, which ends up being about two quotes long. Even before they get to the Panico quotes, the author (Rosas Plata) claims, “10 months out from the Perros leaving, CMLL remains the strongest company in Mexico.” Their strength is built on their empty seats, I guess. The next paragraph talks about running shows in “areas that were lost”, naming Arena Isabel, San Luis Potosi, and Arena Coliseo Monterrey (uh, no.)

Anyway, Panico says CMLL can afford to lose anyone, because they’ll just take a kid out of one of their training schools to replace them. I don’t think that’s actually a working strategy, but it’d be interesting if CMLL actually believed that. Panico says guys like the Perros and Dos have left and some will eventually return, but that’s up to the wrestlers.

Ovaciones previews tonight’s Arena Mexico, as does ESTO and Record

Dr. Wagner says Cibernetico and Mesias had to join forces to fight him, because neither has a chance on their own. Plus, Cibernetico had to return to AAA to exist at all. Mesias was a good champion, but he’s not at Wagner’s level. Wagner says the Perros knew he was scheduled for AAA on the day they announced him for their show, but announced them everyone. In this interview, Dr. Wagner says he’s a free and independent wrestler. Someone’s lying here.

Villano V wants a loser must retire match with Blue Panther for the anniversary show.

Blue Demon plans to start celebrating his 24th anniversary with the show in Toronto next month. He also talks about the great success of NWA Mexico, which hasn’t run a show in a 2.5 months.

Ras de Lona #52 is Sangre Azteca, Dragon Rojo, Ultimo Dragoncito, Terrible, Princesa Blanca, Stuka Jr., Hijo del Fantasma, Quemonito and the hosts going on rides at Six Flags for their one year anniversary. If you want to see Leobrado and Quemonito on a merry go round, this is the show for you. Not only does Stuka appear to own one shirt, but he also is totally freaked out on some of the rides.

Luchas 2000 #476 is all about their show on Saturday.

Guerreros del Ring #192 is a special double issue with Pesta Negra & Andre the Giant covers.

LuchaWorld has Robert on Cadena3 04/05/08, CMLL TV 04/19/08, and AAA 04/27/08, as well as KrisZ’s news update.

  1. Blue Demon Jr. is a freaking TOOL. NWA , NWA Mexico, and Blue Demon Jr. ain’t worth $hit. Does the Dude seriously think anyone really cares about his 25 years in the business, especially in Canada?! Seriously dude it is time to get over yourself, you are the “World Champion” of the Not World Anything promotion. Sorry, just had a moment.

  2. 6/27 on Canal Sur, hour 1, had:

    Lady Apache, Electro Shock vs. Fabi Apache, el Apache
    Heavy Metal, Zorro, Intocable, vs. Charly Manson, Juventud Guerrera, Mr. Aguila
    Chessman, Abismo Negro, Cibernetico vs. Latin Lover, Gronda, La Parka.

    I’ll watch hour two another day.

  3. @CJK: WTF!!! You need to head of to byl, elmartinete and superlucasnet to be enlighted on how Demon Jr holds on the legacy while that slacker Hijo del Santo just lives from his father greatness.

    [/sarcasm]

    Record deleted the pdm article from a few days back… does that mean they’ve parted ways?

  4. When I think legends, I think Funks, Flair, Thesz, Blue Demon Jr., Brisco, Adam Pearce Shirt, Rhodes, and Rogers…All these men held the NWA World Title! WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!

  5. @xuisaw: That’s strange. I’m sure they’re done but it’s odd to pull the article (which I’ll now repost for fun)

    —-

    El Hijo del Perro Aguayo se mostró molesto e indignado por la falta de profesionalismo de Dr. Wagner y Cibernético al dejar “votada” la función del pasado sábado en la Coliseo Olímpico de la Universidad de Guadalajara, Jalisco.

    Ante esto el rufián dejó en claro que la empresa no se desmorona ante la ausencia de estos dos elementos luchísticos en su empresa. “Los señores dieron entrevistas sobre que se presentarían y dejaron tirada la función porque al final se presentaron en otra. Espero que le vaya bien a Wagner, pero también deben tener una ética profesional porque lo primordial es la palabra, gente que no tiene ética profesional, no vale nada”, indicó. Pese a que sólo existía un contrato verbal, Aguayo Ramírez señaló que el “Galeno del Mal” y el “Main Man” confirmaron su presencia días antes de la función y por ello, confiaron en que se presentarían a trabajar por tierras jaliscienses, aún con el rumor de que Dr. Wagner Jr. estaba programado en Orizaba, Veracruz, con la Triple A.

    “Pueden ser los mejores luchadores del mundo pero si no tienen profesionalismo, que bueno que no están en la empresa. Sé que no les interesa lo que piense, más bien lo que debe interesarles es lo que diga la gente de ellos. Sabíamos del rumor de que se iba a Triple A y por eso se hablo con él en varias ocasiones, siempre negaron el rumor, decían que era una mala intención de la empresa para desestabilizar a los luchadores”, explicó. El vástago del Can de Nochistlán fue tajante al señalar que existen otros elementos internacionales con los que se podría respaldar la “perrrera”, y negó la posibilidad de que la compañía luchística desaparezca o regrese al CMLL. “Hay talento nuevo que seguirá en la empresa, hay gente con la que podemos trabajar y por eso no se acaba el mundo. En declaraciones grabadas, Wagner y Cibernético dijeron que se presentarían en la función, ahora estamos haciendo cambios y ya se habló con los promotores sobre las funciones que tenían programadas”, acotó.

  6. I was at Hastings the other day and on the top shelf of the wrestling DVD’s, there was almost a whole row of unsold “Best of Blue Demon jr” DVD’s. I can’t imagine that’s going to change the next time I drop by.

  7. Holy Crap! On ECW, one of the TOP CONTENDERS TO THE NWA TITLE HELD BY BLUE DEMON JR. is jobbing to a guy named Sheamus! Seems like ECW is trying to create the first promotion to have a wrestler representing a different country on their roster.

    WTF is up with the depressing announcing crew for ECW?

  8. @Tim: I bet he’ll debut soon considering that this “new superstar initiative” seems to be designed to give all nations their own representative on ECW! I might…MIGHT….Maybe…watch ECW more.

  9. @Alfredo: They’re finally doing what I’ve hoped all along they’d do, and simply air FCW TV.

    As for Blue Demon Jr., I’ve seen him wrestle live twice in the last six months, and…yeah. I want to like him. I really do. I really, really do. But at his best, he was mediocre.

  10. @thecubsfan: The more and more I think about it the more I don’t think that Guerrerito is/was Espectrio 2. The names given in all of the articles aren’t the name I remember.

  11. @Rob: The GdF in Chicago is the one that WAS in Mexico and the one that was in the WWF.

    The Luchawiki is wrong.
