Today’s Arena Mexico show is hyped in ESTO as the return of Strong Man to Arena Mexico. He hasn’t been there in about four weeks.
Perro Aguayo’s Perros del Mal announced a partnership with El Hijo del Santo’s Todo X El Todos promotion yesterday. SuperLuchas has the full press release, with the first combo show on 01/31. The idea is they’ll combine their two talent rosters, and hopefully be able to run some shows. Perros del Mal are savvy enough to mention their next show in the press release:
Perros (SUN) 01/17 Arena Lopez Mateos
1) Skayde vs Carta Brava
2) Cósmico vs Mini Talisman
3) Celestial & Turbo vs Black Thunder & Mr. Aguilita
4) el Ángel & Nova vs Veneno & X-Fly
5) Charly Manson, Groon XXX, Oriental vs Damián 666, el Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Halloween
As for Santo/Perro, wait and see. The Perros weren’t much more successful when Cibernetico was around. Santo (and Blue Demon, also mentioned as being part of this) are bigger stars, but both haven’t been successful on their own on getting local promoters to use them the past year, or to get on TV. Santo notes he didn’t wrestle in Mexico City all of last year as a reason for making this deal, but it’s not like the Perros are the people you go to run to more.
Maybe I’m not giving this story enough credit and it’ll seem a much bigger deal down the road. Right now, it’s two guys who haven’t been able to get a regular schedule on their own coming together, but there’s no guarantee that coming together will actually get them closer to their goals.
The 01/31 show won’t be back at this building. Ovaciones says a new female promotion will be starting here on that day.

It’s time for the annual Torreon begins licensing wrestlers for the year article. Which means we’re only about six weeks away from the annual “no one in Torreon has bothered to get a license” article! So far, out of the 140 local wrestlers, 6 have gotten their license. A strong 4%!

The El Mistico twitter account is a fake, right? Someone at CMLL should probably file a complaint about impersonation, because he’s presenting himself as the real deal. (And if he is the real deal, maybe CMLL’s twitter account can confirm that?)
