1) Keshin Black b Imperial
2) Eragon & Star Boy b Maldito Jr. & Samoth
3) Fantasma de la Ópera & Gringo Loco b Gemelo Fantastico I & Gemelo Fantastico II
4) Bushi, Negro Navarro, Trauma I b Avisman, Fantasma de la Ópera, Jack

Suicida replaced Rigo. Match was said to be pretty good.

(Strong Style Spirit) NJPW’s announced Mistico will defend the IWGP Junior Heavyweight championship versus Tiger Mask V on 11/08 in Sumo Hall. That means he probably misses the 11/06 Arena Mexico show.

Ras de Lona #67 notes:
– Ultimo Dragoncito was in a car accident on Saturday
– Val Venis (still spelled Vines) debuts on 11/06
– Flash does not live up to his gimmick on a go cart! What a failure. I wasn’t as surprised by Tiger Kid losing the rudo race. Even with the mask, he looks like he can be legally old enough to drive.

Record talks to Perro Aguayo Jr., who wants a hair vs mask match with Park after he disrespected Perro Sr. Perro promises more stars coming to his group. Record also has a preview of their monthly magazine, with a feature on LA Park.

Mistico vows to be a tecnico as long as he’s alive.

Angel de Oro was as surprised to be in the 12 man cage match as Dr. X.

A news story on Konnan kidnapping Dorian Roldan. Meanwhile, Konnan tells Vanguardia everyone but Zorro & Chessman are hiding their shortcomings thru gimmicks. Isn’t that sort of the idea? Anyway, today he’s decided Chessman is the future of the business, and he hopes the Legion wins all the belts in 2010.

Ovaciones previews Lady Apache title match tonight with a picture of Fabi Apache. Oops. ESTO goes with Princesa Blanca with the belt. I’m thinking no change today.

AAA says Sugi is hurt again, though it may just be part of the finish at the last taping, and has photos of Sexi Star in Dos de Tres

La Union has Ricky Cruz in what was Guerrero Maya Jr.’s spot for the Pierroth benefit show, later this month.

Fighting Spirit Distribution, the company who brought the CMLL workers to Monaco for their sports television marketing convention, has interesting facts about CMLL on their website. Arena Mexico always sells out it shows, but for CMLL’s biggest events, they run an 80,000 person building. How am I missing writing about 80,000 people shows? Totally dropping the ball.

(Are they even going to draw 80,000 this entire month to Arena Mexico? Thinking no.)

A Meican lucha exhibit is coming to the Mexican consulate in Montreal tomorrow until 11/09.

Cronicas and Leyendas de la Lucha Libre writes about Matematico in Panama and the first manager of the Killer.

Ohtani’s Jacket and Raging Noodles check out Dandy & Ultimo Vampiro vs Negro Navarro & Pantera from 4/4/02 IWRG.

  1. I think you missed the author of the CMLL write-up on that site. I checked the web page source and found it was written by “H. Hogan”!

  2. FSE is airing what I believe is the third episode of AAA now against Tercera Caida. The taping is from the second night and featured the Atomicos opener and the Zorro/Jack Evans/Marco trios match. Pretty sure this is the only match on TV with Zorro playing a tecnico. That was my favorite match of the taping.

    Hoping they reair it on Thursday when I’m not trying to watch something else.

  3. Konnan has more shortcomings than anybody else so what’s he talking about.

    So Chessman is the future of the business hu? Spoken like Vince Russo. Russo also loved to talk about how this guy and that guy are the future.

  4. Well Chessman was the future until he became a Jackass. We all know who the future of Lucha Libre is: STRONGMAN.

  5. @HeHateMe: Probably means Chessman is jumping soon. Konnan just wants to be able to say he was on his side rather than be accused of forcing another Mexican out to make room for an American.
