More Ultimo/Stuka interviews for today’s show in Fuego en el Ring. UG thought Sombra/Dragon would do better last week. He’d be willing to face Garza in a mask vs hair match, because he’s not yet won hair. He promises a new look coming in about two months.
Record has a three part interview with Mistico and Averno about their team. Mistico considers himself neither tecnico or rudo right now and explains he did what he did because he wanted to win the tournament, but also talks about teaming with Averno full time and says Volador’s became famous only because he was teaming with Mistico. At the same time, Mistico also says he hasn’t forgot his feud with Averno, still would like to do that mask match, and hasn’t forgot how past partnerships have gone bad. (Odd that the past partnership he brings up isn’t Black Warrior or Negro Casas, but Hector Garza.)
Averno thinks he and Mistico should take the tag titles from Sombra & Volador. Averno should be the programmer! Mistico suggests bringing in Mephisto and making it a trio. Mistico again says he doesn’t want to be tecnico or rudo, but just the best and win the titles. (Again, Hector Garza. ISSUES.) Depsite all this talk, it’ll be Atlantis & Ultimo Guerrero that Mistico will actually be teaming up with Sunday.
Speaking of Sunday, SuperLuchas looks at the three way battle that day – Perros vs CMLL vs WWE’s Royal Rumble on PPV. The Perros have made “cheap tickets for all!” as one of their focuses, but CMLL’s cheapest tickets are lower than the Perros for this week, and CMLL’s letting in all kids for free – both clearly designed to pack their house at the expense of the Perros. The Perros most expensive tickets are cheaper than CMLL’s.
In hyping up the Perro’s show, Perro Jr. says his promotion can make the best cards in Mexico, and figures he’ll be the only one wrestling as a rudo in the main event on Sunday. Also, Charly Manson says X-Fly is very respected and very prestigious, and so is Charly title.
For weekend 2 of the AAA movie, various AAA wrestlers will be doing autograph signings at theaters. Haven’t been able to find out how the movie actually did in week 1 (only know Avatar was the #1 movie of the week in Mexico.) Speaking off, Kcidis illustrates Ozz inspired by a movie.
ROH has added Super Parka to Blue Demon Jr. and Cassandro on it’s April 3rd show in Charlotte.
There’s a new lucha libre restaurant open in Cleveland, Ohio. Cleveland?
Shocker & Strong Man team up in San Fransisco on Saturday. This is the same show with Lady Apache vs Alissa Flash for a new title. Since Alissa is finished up with TNA, can Lady Apache talk her into coming to CMLL? She’d be fun.
Segunda Caida continues it’s complete Cassandro recap with AAA matches from ’06 and ’07.
