CMLL (MON) 01/11 Arena Puebla [Fuego en el Ring]
1) Alarido, Ares el Guerrero, Crazy Black b Blue Center, Centella de Oro, King Jaguar
2) Disturbio, Espiritu Maligno, Hooligan b Milenium, Sensei, Tigre Blanco
3) Fuego, Metro, Stuka Jr. b Dr. X, Pólvora, Virus
4) La Sombra, Strong Man, Super Porky DQ Atlantis, Negro Casas, Último Guerrero
5) Místico b Rey Bucanero
Rey tried to apply La Mistica, failed, got beat by La Mistica. :-(
UG yanked Sombra’s mask in the semimain. Crazy Black joined the rudos in the opener, which will surely change the balance of power in Puebla.
Both ESTO and Ovaciones and ESTO hype Naito on today’s Arena Mexico show. It is in Arena Mexico after all.
Electroshock getting into a car accident got picked up in a lot of places yesterday, though there’s not much there that wasn’t in the first article. AAA interviews Electro, and he says he’s doing OK.
The other random story popping up everywhere is The Rock’s trip to Mexico to promote his (awful looking) Tooth Fairy movie. He told ESTO his lucha libre idols are Mil Mascaras, El Santo and Eddie Guerrero.
AAA reprints a Laredo Kid interview from Box Y Lucha. Laredo wants to get more experience fighting the top guys. He thinks the Air Force is done – Super Fly is fine on regular shows, but acts all jealous on TV. (They seemed to drop that months ago.) Laredo says he has no problems with injuries right now.
WagnerMania has a two part video interview with Silver King
Estrella del Ring has an interview with Hijo de Lizmark, who’s out with an injury to his right leg.
Luchando Libre posted their 2009 awards. They went a lot of ways I wouldn’t have considered.
La Voz has the Mexicali Box y Lucha awards. Can’t say I have strong opinions on those, sorry, though I will note that there’s a point in SuperLuchas favor inside.
El Pancracio has an interview with Rambo, who says he wanted to use Sargento Furia or Capitán Sangre when getting a new persona, but Francisco Flores insisted on a shorter name. Capitan Sangre was a pretty good idea. He says kids need to learn wrestling from A-Z, and they’re only learning it from X-Z. There’s also an interview with Super Muneco, who says he’s won 98 masks. Hope they build something for #100.
Pancracio also mentions the third season of Idolos del Ring (reality show?) starts filming on 02/21/10 and includes Claudio Castagnolli in the cast. So confused. This is all I know.
Somos Distribution is mentioned as marketing CMLL lucha libre at the NATPE (TV) convention in a couple weeks. Another article says Somos signed a content deal with CadenaTres, so it’s the Tuesday Arena Mexico show.
New Viper Amnesia has a Twitter account.
LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.
IWRG (THU) 01/14 Arena Naucalpan
1) Volaris vs Flama Eterna
2) Dinamic Black & Imperial vs Comando Negro & Hijo del Signo
3) Brazo de Plata Jr., Brazo Jr., Brazo Metalico vs Avisman, El Hijo del Diablo, Gringo Loco
4) Suicida & Zatura vs Trauma I & Trauma II
5) Angelico, Pantera, Solar I vs Bombero Infernal, Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Negro Navarro
This card has some promise and is supposed to be taped for TVC Deportes. Bombero Infernal makes a return (after he lost his mask as Capitan Muerte.) Tercera is a rematch, which worries me slightly.
CMLL (SAT) 01/30 Mission Valley Ballroom, El Paso, TX
1) Drako & RBD vs Pagano & Rey Infernal
2) Samuray & Samuray Jr. vs Ghost Rider & Scorpio (El Paso)
3) Sexy Flowers & Trinigistro vs Freddy Kruger & Rey Scorpio
4) Crazy 33, Magnum, Marquez Jr. vs Black Fish, Crazy 32, El Migra
5) Hijo del Fantasma & Místico vs Texano Jr. & Último Guerrero
Rare appearance north of the border. Hilariously, this Mistico is listed as El Unico & Original on the poster in Incognito’s hometown. That’s quite the message.
